    Any idiot can run. The problem happens when some vote for that candidate.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    It sounds like the best torture is for him to just keep on living in this world he finds so painful.

    He's the reductio ad absurdum of the beliefs of about 5% of men out there. He shouldn't run as an Indy, though. He's missed his calling.

    How does an incel go on to make babies with underage kidnapped rape victims??

    Incel seems like the end of a sentence.

    He's been doing it long enough that I don't think it's a bit.

    If you go on sites like Less Wrong there is a delight among subcultures in taking a premise and following it all the way to its conclusion, regardless of how counter-intuitive. People who do that think they are being groundbreaking and revolutionary. They actually like it when their statements become more shocking, because they equate "shock" with taking people out of the presumptive haze of everyday sheeple training. You can see that in Flag. He likes it when we are disgusted by his prattle because he thinks that means he's challenging our programming.

    That is how a cult gets people to truly believe prima facie ridiculous things. It all leads back to vanity: if I'm breaking your norm that must mean I am Zarathustra, seeing beyond you. It's adolescent thinking, perfectly understandable and a necessary phase when you are 14 -- deeply sad and pathetic when you are 34.

    c.f. incels, anarchists, von Miseans, Randians, Marxists, supremacists of all stripes, Scientologists, Zulu Nation, InfoWars, about a million (maybe every) religions.

    Murray Rothbard wrote in defense of his brand of libertarian hokum that it does not matter if empirical data refutes his claims because his claims follow logically from irrefutable axioms, therefore the data has to be irrelevant or wrong. That unfalsifiability is the trademark of the pseudo-intellectual snake oil salesman: what he sells his followers is the appeal to their vanity that They Alone Follow The Difficult And Thankless Way.

    These are people who have literally receded into their rationalist fantasies and are unreachable by real life. They live in their theoretical projection of reality. They don't just mistake the map for the territory, they glory in it. In short, they're willing mental and moral castrati who preen that their self-mutilation is Enlightenment.

    Ugh no. Involuntary celibate. Simply means they are a loser who can't get laid. Raping a kid is EXACTLY how someone that can't find anyone willing would go about it.

    Nope. That's it. It's not what you'd call profound.

    Re: The States: Why does Minnesota wanna be Kansas?

    Michigan just passed the repeal of its prevailing wage law for public works projects, cutting off a ballot initiative. Even better, they gaveled through making it effective immediately by consensus.

    Next up, the Republican state legislature moves to pass work requirements for up to about 30% of current Medicaid recipients. https://www.freep.com/story/news/loc...ill/676634002/
