Police official accidentally debunks Trump’s MS-13 rant with a single stat: The president would have you believe Long Island is a war zone. It isn't. Suffolk County police commissioner noted that there hasn’t been an MS-13-linked homicide in more than a year.

The facts don't matter here. This is a Trump racist talking point and racism has nothing to do with facts.

You can't stop the diarrhea coming from Trump's mouth. This will just be supplanted by more which his supporters will wait anxiously for with shit eating grins.

Paul Ryan seems fine with it.

And everyone's gonna let him - Cause nothing matters anymore.

Don't like it? Vote them all out....

Edit: a word.

He is silent but also resigning, I think because he doesn't want the responsibility of voting for impeachment after the midterm. 4 Republican Senators and 27 Republican House members are retiring this term.

Americans of high-school age are 82 times more likely to die from a gun homicide than 15- to 19-year-olds in the rest of the developed world. Why? The answer is almost insultingly simple and has the virtue only of being true: It’s the guns. | The Atlantic

cops will be given another excuse to harass and kill black people

Fun fact: Cops rarely kill people in Europe ... BECAUSE THEY DONT EXPECT EVERYONE THEY MEET TO BE ARMED WITH A GUN!

facepalm

The second amendment, which is already so poorly worded as to mean anything to anyone, should be repealed via a new one. Police don't need assault rifles, either.

My two worries with gun control are that it'll be used in the shittiest ways possible:

cops will be given another excuse to harass and kill black people anyone with a mental illness will have their records handed over to the government.

It does all depend on legislation obviously, but especially the first scenario is really, really likely. Same shit happens with drugs.

This doesn't mean we need to drop gun control, it just means we need to disarm the police too.

I'm not sure what your argument is. There's a huge racist element in how laws are enforced, like...just a fucking gigantic disparity. It has nothing to do with gun ownership.

"Let’s rename ‘school’ as ‘uterus’ so maybe Republican lawmakers will want to do something about the children dying inside them."

This paints a very lame picture that we (as apparent liberals) concede to the point that abortion=murder, which of course, we do not.

I’ve gotta say, even as just a pithy retort, not exactly down with this argument.

At least until they graduate. Then, fuck em.

Eh....not really.

It’s not like it’s taking a stance per se, it’s just calling out the absurd.

A...jumping off point, if you will. Because we all know how well the conversation would go if this was a starting point with a conservative person. :/

“Things that are said in a shocking way shocked me and I am shocked by it.”

Edward Snowden: "Note: Gina Haspel participated in a torture program that involved beating an (innocent) pregnant woman's stomach, anally raping a man with meals he tried to refuse, and freezing a shackled prisoner until he died. She personally wrote the order to destroy 92 tapes of CIA torture."

That’s a bit more visceral than I’d expected. One hears “torture” or “waterboard” bandied about to the point you get a little inured and think you know what the word means. I didn’t realize they got so...creative.

Does anyone know if Snowden's leak has had any REAL impact at all? Has any thing changed? Did they stopped or changed any of the programs regarding data collection?

honest question, Id like to know the answer.
