Remember Bush, eh ? Well you’re gonna break something with all this pivoting then old man. I remember it too, because certain things happening during that time affected the rest of the world. I don’t doubt he’ll stay in office for a while, but this midterm showed democrats they need to work hard in 2020 and that although they made gains they need to energize their base as well. The thing that most enrages the people I know is that there’s an entire group of people who act like it doesn’t actually matter who’s in office because they live a comfortable life. There’s no empathy for asylum seekers who have yet to be reunited with their children or who have been reunited with a child who has been traumatized by your country. This very conversation, you’ve pivoted away from a conversation about women because it just doesn’t affect you. It’s easier to just say this will pass like Bush did because it has no affect on your life. It’s easier to make the issue about respecting office because the other issue has no place in your mind.

They took his pass away because he “layed his hands on a woman”, end of story.

They doctored this video to back up that belief. You might be willing to change the argument or focus for them but they climbed this hill and they can die on it before I let them change what they said.

I didn’t watch their video. I mentioned that I watched the actual live presser. I mentioned that I didn’t realize they framed it as male aggression and I mentioned that this was ridiculous and irresponsible.

This “old man,” wasn’t pivoting, he was having a conversation.

The “ I’m old enough to remember” was patronizing BS.

The well if that’s the issue then ya they’re dicks but heeey would you look at this over here was pivoting.

    I’m old enough to remember” was patronizing BS.
it is? It’s just a fact. If someone told me they were old enough to remember Nixon, I wouldn’t find it patronizing, I’d find it contextual.

Again, I thought that maybe I was having a conversation. They tend to flow in to new areas, you can call this pivoting if you’d like. I’d invite you to re-read our back and forth and I’d challenge you to find where I was anything less than civil in my conversation with you. This has crossed in to non productive waste of time territory. Time is something I don’t have a lot of. Onward!
