^^^Because I can't rationalize how someone can can be a fan of his music, the way he presented himself and his overall message but consider themselves conservative. Maybe some of the later more theocratic stuff like TRC and editing curse words out of songs but still, overall, I don't get it or see how that can blend. It has nothing to do with Prince's "politics", which were minimal, so much as "all the things I love(d) about Prince seem to fly in the face of the modern GOP's conservative message".

Like...the guy that wrote "Dear Mr. Man", "Baltimore", "Uptown" and "DMSR"...I just don't see the fit.

It's sort of like me figuring out a way to be a HUGE and dedicated Ted Nugent, Charlie Daniels, Kid Rock or Hank Williams fan - to the extent that I post on thier fan message boards and obsess over bootlegs and live shows like we do here. And I even like a few Ted Nugent and Kid Rock tracks but Prince changed my fucking life and, personally, I tend to reach a point with an artist where what they seem to stand for and write about or express effects my level of fandom and dedication.

Safe to say, I think, that my political views and posts might stand out and maybe not quite jive or fit in on Nugent.org. and might leave a few militia minded survivalist types scratching their heads.

Hope I explained that well enough.

What I really can't figure out, though, is how evangelicals and so called christians rally behind this dude.

Shit...I'll settle for one single Republican on this entire fucking board or in this thread in particular offering me one god damned reason to support the GOP platform and no one has done it yet. I've been asking this question for over a year and none of you have anything.


https://prince.org/msg/105/464361

see? That was my THIRD thread on the topic. The rest died on the vine because none of you stand for anything.

... over a 30 year period. This is little different from much of the rest of the world is planning and is a reflection of the adverse impact it has and the current necessity to maintain a reliance on fossil fuels in the short to medium term. Boris Johnson, a UK Conservative is planning to do this and is actively pushing other conservatives to do the same.

Far as I know he never weighed in on comedians much except for Chris Rock.

Are you seriously countering here with "Ronnie Talk to Russia", LOL? And ignoring everything I write? GOd damn.

"So What?"....So I'm gonna go with "just what I wrote". I think I explained myself fairly well and went into considerable detail about it but you keep doing you, whatever that is you call that. Only in the USA indeed because other countries invest in education.

You offer nothing to this board, towards any discussion worth having, provide nothing substantive and refuse to engage with the overall thesis of anything anyone here takes the time to write. You can't even compose a paragraph.

You're white noise and seem to only exist to be a contrarion that gets off on (negative) atttention but if you pause for a minute and re-read some of your back and forth exchanges, it might dawn on and occur to you that, by and large, the shit you write...well...it kind of sucks and nobody here really likes it. Go check. If you're level of discourse is like this with your friends, your family or your spouse then...well...tell them I'm sorry because my god. Reddit might be a better fit for someone who writes like you do and more up your alley.

Post something I can talk about or with any sort of thought behind it. Just one time. Otherwise, you can miss me on this board or anywhere else for that matter. Unless I quote you, pretend I don't exist because your bullshit is clouding up and dropping fog on a few posts that I put some actual thought behind. ANd yes, I realize I just quoted you so all this shit (that the mods will SNIP anyway is fair game.)

thanks in advance.

I've written more than enough for you to chew on, rebut, answer, talk about, itemize, bullet point or otherwise explain and delve into but all you do is write vaccuous phone post messages that focus on moving goal posts (See below) and, near as I can tell, no one here is real into your act beyond keeping threads juiced and moving. For my money, you're just about the worst poster on this forum (and that's saying a lot). Not because you "disagree" with me but because you don't WRITE ANYTHING worthy of engagement.

Here. I'll write your next post for you

I'm very glad certain people in this thread have decided not to vote, which is something I thought I'd never say, but here we are in this foul year of our lord, 2020 and it is what it is.

But on behalf of the more mindful amongst us who care about other people, I want to say "thank you". The more the fascist enablers, white supremacist apologists and nazi sympathizers stay at home, the better. You should stay home more often. Especially since you abjectly refuse to wear masks and help with the pandemic.

Stay at home a LOT. Thanks in advance.

Great! #Biden/Harris

Biden continues to hold nationwide advantage in final days of 2020 race
By Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director

Updated 8:05 AM ET, Thu October 29, 2020


With the race for the presidency approaching its end amid a raging pandemic, Democratic nominee Joe Biden maintains a substantial lead over President Donald Trump nationwide, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS.


Among likely voters, 54% back Biden and 42% Trump. Biden has held a lead in every CNN poll on the matchup since 2019, and he has held a statistically significant advantage in every high-quality national poll since the spring.
Although the election will ultimately be decided by the statewide results, which drive the Electoral College, Biden's lead nationally is wider than any presidential candidate has held in more than two decades in the final days of the campaign.

This decision made by Supreme Court for NC & PA. Looks like we may not have a final decision until mid-November to make sure all mail-in ballots are counted. GOP pissed over that. Lol.

https://www.nytimes.com/2...llots.html

Supreme Court Allows Longer Deadlines for Absentee Ballots in Pennsylvania and North Carolina

Republicans in both states opposed the extensions. Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who joined the court on Tuesday, did not participate in either case, saying she had not had time to fully review the briefs.”


By Adam Liptak
Oct. 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — “In a pair of decisions welcomed by Democrats, the Supreme Court on Wednesday let election officials in two key battleground states, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, accept absentee ballots for several days after Election Day.

In the Pennsylvania case, the court refused a plea from Republicans in the state that it decide before Election Day whether election officials can continue receiving absentee ballots for three days after Nov. 3.

In the North Carolina case, the court let stand lower court rulings that allowed the state’s board of elections to extend the deadline to nine days after Election Day, up from the three days called for by the state legislature.”

I have a blast reading this topic from election night 2016....


https://prince.org/msg/105/434787


Few points: I really did not think we would win. Several of the former orgers were calling it and I was still nawww it is too early. I also got reminded how many protests occurred.

I also must have voted for him? I really thought I didn't? Oh well...

so much anger and shock. As much as I hate the idea of POTUS Joe or the H...arris... I have to say trump seems like the better more stable choice. and that is saying a lot.

.

So all your whataboutisms to falsely accuse Biden of sexual abuse whilst standing on your high horse as not a trump voter because of an imagined moral stand for the more than 20 actual accusations and payoffs was, as we all said, wrong - You defended trump and defended trump and defended trump and defended trump after having voted for him.

.

PS Protests are legal - killing protesters, planning insurrection encouraged by trump's call to liberate Michigan etc is not. The threat this time is for more of the violence the fascists, white supremacists and far-right anti-government militias that trump has encouraged, supported and relied upon to continue if he wins but especially if he loses and calls on those he asked to stand by.

.

The president encouraging people seeking to force a bus off the road just because it says Biden is far more unstable than any choice in living memory. You are confusing ideology with stability imagining your ideology must be more sane than people who reject your political bias. We have seen this from Fox and Co who were also initially against trump and from most of the elected GOP people.

.

One of the greatest outcomes of a loss for trump will be that the GOP will need to sit down and take a long hard look at how they sold their soul to TV personality who could not even run a casino to make money. How they ceased to be a conservative party and became a front for extremists and conspiracy theorists and, in the process, switched from supporting gun rights as a (poorly thoughout) defense to encouraging violence so long as it is against fellow Americans. How they so easily became yes men when it was politically opportune despite the abject failures made by trump, especially with race relations and covid19. I think the failing starts when you know you have to suppress voting to win because you know the majority is generally against your ideology.

Axios reports Donald Trump will try to declare victory on Tuesday night, if he is ahead in key states and before millions of the mail-in votes are counted. “Trump has privately talked through this scenario in some detail in the last few weeks, describing plans to walk up to a podium on election night and declare he has won.”

are you confident that that joe will not do the same if it looks the same for him?

we may not know for weeks. I do not belive any votes mailed and post marked after 11/2 should be allowed... because it gives people a chance to vote AFTER the election is over. But Whatever the law is should not be changed. (like gore tried to do in 2000).

If he wins, it would be an excellent test to establish how democratic-healthy this whole country really is. He has already said incredible dangerous nonsense and has caused deep ethnic and social divisions in 4 years. At least 48% of the population do not tolerate him AT ALL. He has been impeached already. He wouldn't last 4 more years with the same tactics. He would have to relent or the troubles from 2019-2020 would explode on his ass. Out of control, I mean.

.

The system is an undemocratic gerrymander set up to give slave states more representation than their voting population is due. It was so flawed then it resulted in 8 of first 11 presidents being southern slave owners and it has not got much better.

.

The republicans have been increasingly marginalised as urbanisation increases over time and as people become more educated and inclusive especially in urban areas. For the presidency this means the red states are generally lower population or proportionally high rural population states. For the house it means the republicans rely on some of the grossest gerrymandering in world to limit liberal and black representation. Even with this the republicans still need to rely on voter suppression and presidential encouraged voter intimidation. This is shown by them making it harder to vote, their court action to deny votes made and sent by the end of the election day and the actions of far-right nut jobs in their dressed up utility trucks and fancy dress.

.

There is no imaginary popular vote - this is far-right spin. The popular vote is a relevant measure of the general support a presidential candidate could garner across the country. That it more often than not demonstrates a rejection of far-right politics despite how the college vote goes, is a good reason to believe the electoral college system is a flawed and out of date 18th century system that needs to be replaced by a more effective system along with replacing a system that elects a monarch for 4 or 8 years without proper checks and balances. This so often results in governments being moribund, self-serving and corrupt.

.

If the US found another country that a GOP president thought was a shithole with a similar system, you would look at that mess and you would be hating on their electoral system.

Isn’t it interesting that you don’t see the righties condemning Trump supporters for blocking bridges and tunnels in NY and NJ and stalking a Biden supporter bus in another state? I bet if it was protesters they would have been arrested/tear gassed by police.

Did trump call them thugs and call in police to restore law and order? You see the preference? Smh.



https://www.nytimes.com/2...ersey.html



Trump’s supporters block traffic on major roadways in New York and New Jersey.

By Neil Vigdor, Jesse McKinley, Emma G. Fitzsimmons, Sydney Ember, Annie Karni and Stephanie Sau


“Caravans of President Trump’s supporters blockaded the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and the Garden State Parkway on Sunday, snarling traffic on two of the busiest highways in the New York metropolitan area just two days before Election Day.

Videos taken by motorists showed the president’s backers parked in the middle of the westbound lanes of the bridge, which carries Interstate 287 across the Hudson River and is named for the father of the current governor, Andrew M. Cuomo.

A number of them exited their vehicles in the rain and waved Trump banners and American flags as motorists honked their horns.”



(Edited for compliance)

State Senator David Carlucci, a Democrat who represents Rockland County, called the blockade on the bridge “aggressive, dangerous, and reckless” with individuals “causing danger to themselves and others.”

“The New York State Police should be working to identify these individuals and charging them,” Mr. Carlucci said. “We all have the right to show support for a presidential candidate, but we do not have the right to endanger others and break the law.”

This is why your system needs to be hated - rather than being leaders of freedom and democracy, your country is a gerrymander for the far-right.

.

Yes, when it comes to major elections of size and importance of the Australian or US Federal election, the correct decision has been the person who has won the popular vote. This is regardless of the party: I say this for when the Labor parties Mark Latham was correctly rejected by the Australian people and for when trump was correctly rejected by the people of the USA. As a democracy is recognised as Human right, you are arguing against human rights if they go against your ideology.

.

You know you are playing word games to cover the facts when you fail to recognise that in a first past the post system with more than 2 choices, the electors know this in how they vote. This means the person who has won the popular vote is the one who won the most votes. You are being highly disengenous when you do this.

So all your whataboutisms to falsely accuse Biden of sexual abuse whilst standing on your high horse as not a trump voter because of an imagined moral stand for the more than 20 actual accusations and payoffs was, as we all said, wrong - You defended trump and defended trump and defended trump and defended trump after having voted for him.

.

PS Protests are legal - killing protesters, planning insurrection encouraged by trump's call to liberate Michigan etc is not. The threat this time is for more of the violence the fascists, white supremacists and far-right anti-government militias that trump has encouraged, supported and relied upon to continue if he wins but especially if he loses and calls on those he asked to stand by.

.

The president encouraging people seeking to force a bus off the road just because it says Biden is far more unstable than any choice in living memory. You are confusing ideology with stability imagining your ideology must be more sane than people who reject your political bias. We have seen this from Fox and Co who were also initially against trump and from most of the elected GOP people.

.

One of the greatest outcomes of a loss for trump will be that the GOP will need to sit down and take a long hard look at how they sold their soul to TV personality who could not even run a casino to make money. How they ceased to be a conservative party and became a front for extremists and conspiracy theorists and, in the process, switched from supporting gun rights as a (poorly thoughout) defense to encouraging violence so long as it is against fellow Americans. How they so easily became yes men when it was politically opportune despite the abject failures made by trump, especially with race relations and covid19. I think the failing starts when you know you have to suppress voting to win because you know the majority is generally against your ideology.

This proves what many of us here have known for years- that absolutely nothing this guy says can be trusted. it's all just a jumble of lies and misinformation and dissembling and meaningless word gaes

Few points: I really did not think we would win. Several of the former orgers were calling it and I was still nawww it is too early. I also got reminded how many protests occurred.
I also must have voted for him? I really thought I didn't? Oh well...

You forgot you voted for THIS man?! Really?! biggrin

And you think Trump is a more stable choice?!

What do you mean?

Stable hate-spreading? Stable chaos-creating?

Don't you read or watch any - serious & reliable - news?

This guy is out of his mind - can't you see it?
