    Lord have mercy, just got back from the NIN sub. The whining from redditors about Trent's Ted Cruz comments the other night is getting to me. "I go to concerts to have fun and not talk about politics. Why does he have to make everything political? REEEEE."

    Sure enough, when you click on their post history, they stump for Trump (and Cruz, McConnell etc.) In the NIN sub's defense, those folks are getting downvoted pretty handily.

    They wanted a leader who was vicious and condescending to the people groups they didn't like/were afraid of, but they didn't have the stones to own it when called to the carpet for it. That's the part that really kills me, and I see it with my family members all the time. They are either MAGA or of the "all sides are the same" persuasion, and they get so frustrated when you dare to tell them they effed up, no matter how reasonably you present your perspective. "Why can't you tolerate my intolerance? I have a right to an opinion! Why do you have to make everything political? WHY ARE WE SO DIVIDED?!?!"

    They want to have their asshole cake and eat it too without anyone looking down on them for eating an entire cake made of assholes.

    But if the rest of us have to deal with the practical consequences of your political ideology, then we have no obligation to shield you from the social consequences of your political ideology. So when your musical idol talks trash about your ideology, that's a social consequence that YOU signed up for willingly.

    Honestly I thought what he said was funny - he was making it quite light hearted and nobody had to hold up their hand and say I voted for Cruz!

    Trent's music has always had a focus on taking the piss out of people like Ted Cruz. Shit, do they think Head Like A Hole is just something to bang your head to? What a bunch of morons.

    Trump, explaining the latest Cohen info: "I didn't do anything illegal." and "I didn't do anything wrong."

    The former does not guarantee the latter. Engaging in massive personal business dealings with a hostile nation while running for president? Really fucking wrong.

    I dunno, but Alderman Ed Burke’s office was raided by the FBI this morning. Butcher paper covered the windows. Nobody knows what’s going on.

    Burke (an attorney) represented Trump in his Cook County tax appeals cases at Trump Tower in Chicago.

    From a very uneducated position, to me this sounds more like a search for info relating to tax evasion allegations than anything else. But maybe they're also just looking to secure any and all financial information to help see where money went and when?

    I know this is pretty damn unrelated and I don't want to start a new thread about it, but maybe someone here can answer this question for me...

    Can I just handcuff myself to a business' doors and rant like a fucking lunatic for six hours or so and not wind up in jail? I understand Twitter didn't want to press charges against whomever this person is, but isn't that disrupting the peace or something? Because sometimes I get bored, and I think Twitter sucks, and if I can get away with chaining myself to their building and blabbing like a lunatic all day, maybe I can turn this into a profit somewhere down the line.

    Ah yes, the old "my head is empty so everything has to be meaningless" argument

    rock fans break down roughly into two groups, people angry at those above and people angry at those below

    And... I just did a quick google search for this video, but Trent has been saying on record for over ten years that if you're a Republican, Nine Inch Nails likely isn't for you. OVER ten years, at least. I just don't get it.

    Ohhhhhhh, gotcha. That makes a lot more sense - and I agree. If you're the kind of person who thinks "stick to music" is a valid argument, then take your own advice and stick to bitching about things on the internet all night while actual fans go see concerts.

    Also, major drift occurring here. Let's try to get back on track.

    How is Roger Stone getting away with claiming that he had no communication with Assange? He deleted the fucking post from Twitter shortly after he drunk-tweeted it, but he flat out said "we have an open back door communication with Wikileaks." He said this in between blathering some angry hateful shit, but it was there!

    You can delete your tweets, but they don't disappear, you walking shitstain

    I really don't understand how stuff like this isn't considered obstruction of justice...





    It's just so blatant and out in the open, it's unbelievable.

    Wait, did Eric really call George Conway's calm, reasoned, and well-informed point of order "disrespectful to his wife"? And then people BUY this shit?

    Oh my god. This country is so dumb. I can't even.

    It is considered obstruction of justice. It's not a secret that he's done it, news sites are reporting on it, legal experts are weighing in, there is no doubt that's exactly what this is. Similar situations are routinely prosecuted.

    The only question that remains is whether or not he'll be prosecuted for it, impeached for it, or get away with it. I used to be more optimistic about criminals being punished, but since he won it's really starting to appear that the whole idea of the justice system being effective was just an illusion.
