I’d take Key West over Narvik any day.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. - Colin Powell

I appreciate this!

 But again, in this climate, even agreeing with this poster could be construed as not hating "insane rightists". (is rightist the opposite of leftist?)

Quote of the week:

“Porn actress,” Mike Murphy, a longtime Republican strategist, amended. “People go straight to ‘porn star.’ I like to see a few awards before you use that moniker.”

Hey, I said it was the SAFE strategy, not the Right strategy.

Stormy Daniels has five AVN Awards, and was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2014. She is unquestionably highly regarded and a star in her industry.

Kinda unrelated but speaking about porn awards I find this picture of porn stars at an award show vs Hollywood/music stars says a lot, especially amid #metoo

Of course, you could just switch the sides and the results would be the same. Obama/Clinton/Comey/Mueller---------> is lying. Just substitute the conspiracy to Trump's Russian Collusion  :rofl:

Good either way.

Saw a meme recently in one of the gun politics echo chambers  discussions.

I was tempted to reply, but decided not too, based on this story in the Financial Times, ( numerous sources to choose from )

Why the alt-right is winning America’s meme war

The alt-right has swelled in power by presenting itself as a victim of elitist attacks, and the memes are so potent precisely because they are designed to be subversive and to bait their opponents into a reaction.

Memes should come with trigger warnings.

Good to see the alt right beating the alt left at picture war though.
