Letterkenny (Hulu in US, Crave in Canada, don't know about lesser nations) is the best comedy out there.

If you haven't watched it yet, pitter patter let's get at 'er.

Building a wall isn't a practical solution. It's a non-solution for a non-existent problem.

I'll not even touch the whole "colorblind" shtick you're trying for. If you want to pretend there's no racist or xenophobic elements embedded in this topic I have no desire to dig your head out of the ground.

Hell, one guy would let his golf course be destroyed for the wall to be built.
There is no greater sacrifice than giving up the course for your prick sport to build a monument to useless ways to try and keep brown people away from you.

They're almost 2% of the way there. Trump won't even be in office by the time it gets funded.

The Roy Moore ad that showed a white guy running over brown children. They didn't use the specific words but the message was overwhelmingly clear. White people are monsters that will run over your children in their cars.
Okay yes go find me this ad. I didn't say describe an ad to me.

If you understand the democratic platform could you please explain it to me?
Any particular part you need explained?

I do find it a bit concerning the democrats ran solely on "F*ck Trump and F*ck white people" and still won the house.
Please find me this political ad, paid for by a Democratic candidate, that said "Fuck Trump and Fuck white people". Thanks.

I understood the Democrats platform, beyond "f*ck Trump and f*ck white people" to be "No borders, no wall, no U.S.A at all."
I'm not seeing that in here.

Here's another, why did no congressmen actually change their political parties during the supposed party platform switch? Surely, everyone would have magically swapped sides?

How can you still believe "political parties magically swapped and that's why anything bad that the Democrats did wasn't actually us".

Was McCarthy actually a Democrat, then? Good, because you can have him.
So, if we're going to talk about political parties throughout history, it is important to contextualize for era. There's no sudden "platform switch" where the two parties meet in a smoky room and decide to swap stances. Hell, that's not really how political parties work. Think more "loose ideological alignment" and less "set of firm stances and policies". Generally, we break the history of US political parties into six different eras. See below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Party_System
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_Party_System
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Party_System
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Party_System
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixth_Party_System

The election has been decided. CNN decided it today.
That's not how elections work. Also which election was decided? There's multiple elections going on in the United States.

Ive been working on a decentralized peer to peer blockchain with its own currency for the Flat Earth community. This could later include features like encrypted file sharing, encrypted messages, even a voting mechanism helping to provide an additional form of democracy amongst the community as a whole. [FEND] would be a distributed ledger created by users joining their computer's cpu power together to form a network capable of handling its own currency transactions and payment processing- outside of and without the help of tyrannical governments and banks.  [FEND] Flat Earth Network Dollars are distributed as block rewards for exchange of one's cpu power that creates the [FEND] blockchain, block by block. These blocks can later be used as a record storage for important Flat Earth data, helping to preserve the truth for many generations to come. Interested in what you all think..

I very much like your idea of scamming FES, but you gotta have an inside man that can sell these nerds on the bait. I'll get everyone on board for half the lambos we get out of this.

Deal?
