    yes, they are. But since Trump and Republicans aren't going to do anything to fix them, and in fact are working actively to make them worse, than what's your solution?

    That makes literally no sense.

    It's the same human fecal matter. In the aggregate it is what it is -- how it reacted to a situation is how it will react.

    Unless you are saying take Millenials and Boomers and switch places *when each person hits 21*. Then yes, the situation will be different. But who cares? It won't be anything to do with them. It will just be because the extruded plastic machines of their youth formed them into a different shape.

    But the fact that people are proud (or ashamed) of their cohort is ridiculous. They had no agency in who they became, in the aggregate.

    Individuals differ, yes, of course. But groupings like this are just another way for people to say HURRAY FOR MY TEAM!

    Which is just a way to say HURRAY FOR ME!

    But in this case there not a lot that's complicated about short-sighted, resentful, ignorant jackwagons.

    I agree with this, Trump is a symptom of the greater problem but he's also greatly exacerbating that problem while claiming to do the opposite.

    SamBee didn't get "Roseanne'd" after dropping the c-word onto a White House official (and POTUS daughter)?

    I can't really put my finger on the difference here, but it could have something to do with Ivanka actually being a feckless c-nt.

    You mean that when Sam Bee said something incredibly insulting about an entire race of people she wasn't fired? Oh that didn't happen. What a bunch of whiny babies, the balls on SHS to complain about others being "vile and vicious".

    Personally, I think there's a huge difference between calling a woman the c-word, and saying a black woman is the cross-bred offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. But that's just me.


    Just as I'm equally certain that no one ever on the right ever, ever, ever referred to Hillary using that term. Never happened. Cause they're all so dignified and upstanding on the right. They'd never even think about using such language.

    Ever called a woman the c-word to her face? I haven't but I've witnessed the result. While it is definitely neither as egregious nor historically significant as comparing a black person to an ape I personally find the concept equally abhorrent and unnecessary.

    People really need to get over that.

    Time is a river, it's not a NASCAR race. And the only differences between people born in different years are by definition external and cultural, so they deserve neither credit nor blame for them, so even single year -- or month -- or day cohorts, while they exist, are meaningless.

    I only offered the post to point something out of which I was unaware— that Trump has received an abnormal amount of petitions. Personally I think they should be rarely granted, if at all. But as for the “handing them out like candy,” I’m not sure that the handful granted by Trump qualifies, at least from an historical perspective.
