So...

A little left hypocrisy for you...



Now the Clinton camp wants a recount. Lol.



and of course Jill Stein's website, the major proponent of this call for a recount...

Post your all time favourite instances of duplicity. Maybe we can get a compilation going.


Even if I don't get likes for it, I'm still going to say it.

Re: So...

It's the same duplicity from Republicans who spent years demanding Obama's birth certificate and refusing to do things up to and include approve his Supreme Court choices and who now make the same campfire hymn let's all hold hands and hug into the morning life stuff.

Duplicity isn't Party specific. And until we figure that out, the Parties win and the People lose. Every politician who gets elected will lie to you about something. The only question is how much and about what.

But please back to the steeple chase.

Re: So...

Instead of wasting your time on ceremonial Twitter posts, explain to us how come Wall Street and the DC swamp were Trump's enemies before the election, but are his darlings for cabinet positions now.

Or his stance on corporate tax breaks before the election and today's giveaway to Carrier.

They are piranhas (like a lot of Washington)? They shift with the tide?

Explain to me how that was Trump's fault.

Re: So...

Thank god you created this thread. We needed more anecdotes of liberals being hypocrites who bash poor little republicans who never are and are all so sweet and innocent.

You seem like you spend way too much of your time looking for stuff to confirm what you already believed. Then, you want to take this and post it here so that the conservative cabal can soak it up and rub each other's shoulders down with baby oil.

This is why the country is ****ed. It's partisan demagogues who care nothing about the truth and only about perception. It happens on both sides, but it sure as hell happens on the right side much more here than the left. There is a common axiom that conservatives listen to things that agree with to make them happy and liberals to things they disagree with to make them mad. You sir have become a stereotype.

Man, you don't know nuttin. I despise trump, but he ain't no republican. Unless hating on women and minirities makes you a republican. I liked kasich. I didn't mind Bush. I definitely lean left, especially regarding social issues, but I have some conservative fiscal ideologies and I certainly listen to both sides (hell, I was married to a conservative). Don't you confuse me fighting with the bobble head trumpeters thinking that makes me a partisan. Not that it matters, because, instead of you showing any sort of self analysis, you redirected. I expected it.

Imaginary hatred towards women and minorities. Also you didn't mind Bush? Him you should have minded. That Iraq war was a colossal waste of time, resources, and human life.

Trump wants to keep jobs in America, wants to secure the boarders, etc. My self-analysis says that's good.

This thread is going off the rails. Stay on topic ppl.

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Lol, the topic is So...

How the hell can you get off of that topic? Maybe if it was Sew...

But I am arguing your first post. Is it considered "getting off topic" by not agreeing with you? I need to stay on topic which means bashing liberals? I can do that. Stoopid G-D liberals and their unique snowflake attitudes and they are such pussies and blm is the kkk and the kkk really isn't all that bad, but blm is. And why can't they just accept Trump like we so nicely accepted Harambe I mean Obama...

The Carrier deal was horrible. 1100 jobs for $7 million in tax breaks. The state of Indiana is going to be stuck footing the bill for this. 1300 people are still going to lose their jobs and Carrier will still be allowed to sell their damn air conditioners in the US. What happen to the Trump stance that companies that pull jobs in favor of cheaper foreign labor will not be able to sell their products in the US?? This REALLY pissed me off.

Paul Krugman ‏@paulkrugman Nov 30
Another metric: Trump would have to do one Carrier-sized deal a week for 30 years to save as many jobs as Obama's auto bailout

Thanks Obama

States give tax breaks and all kinds of bennies to attract companies. This happens all the time.

New Mexico has been bidding to get many companies to move here. Part of the incentive package is the state offering low cost land, tax incentives and other things that the companies want. We lose a lot of them because NM is a poor state. Other states can offer more incentive.

What was done to keep Carrier is not unusual at all. The saved jobs will produce more tax revenue than the incentive given.
