sorry maybe this is a thread hijack. i just dont want to make a  thread, but goddam i cant beleive these attempted bombings the other day.
i mean, this shit is pretty real. just cause the President goes and blames it on the media the next day doesnt make it not real.
Can you imagine if even some of those devices killed the intended targets?

i dunno. sometimes i cant believe what the fuck is going on to this country and the downwrad spiral that it seems people are just to warped up in their 24 hr media cycle to even take to heart.
this atmosphere is so fucking toxic right now... seeing these midterm adds tht just say VOTE REPUBLICAN from "mystery" backers to avoid campaign finance, and then show the Dems as angry MObs. All perpetuated by that Orange clown going on tour instead of running the country.
-Shit straight up smacks of Facism in its infancy. i swear to fucking god.
Shits gonna pop off for real one of these days soon the way we're headed.

/end vent. TY.

It feels like we’re in the middle of a slow national suicide.

Mike Pence and the 'rabbi'
At the rally, the vice president announced that he was "privileged to be joined today by a leader in the Jewish Community here in Michigan." The "rabbi," Loren Jacobs, donned a Jewish prayer shawl and invoked Jesus, with a reference to his Hebrew name -- Yeshua. As if this signal wasn't enough, he noted that Yeshua is "Jesus the messiah," but failed to mention the 11 victims of the massacre by name.
With little effort, anyone can go to the Internet and discover that Jacobs is not a rabbi but an evangelical Christian whose main religious education was obtained at the Moody Bible Institute, a Christian school that trains people to spread the faith around the world.

Very interesting observing this election in an unfamiliar state. Totally different experience than what I’m used to down here in Florida.  Also hard to believe the Republicans held the Senate.
