Oliver North Showed Republicans the Way Out: Belligerence, shamelessness and partisanship can take you far : TrueReddit
While North and Liddy were early adopters, I would say that Newt mainstreamed it for the GOP.

Pretty much everything the GOP is today is because of Newt."

Scientists Resume Efforts To Create Deadly Flu Virus, With US Government's Blessing
What the fuck? I would have thought this was some crackpot conspiracy theory if it wasn't Forbes posting this.

What exactly is the reasoning for this research?

A Database Showed Far-Right Terror on the Rise. Then Trump Defunded It: Is the administration trying to thwart efforts to combat white supremacy? : TrueReddit
Interesting discussion on Libertarianism. I always thought it was out of touch with the reality of the human condition, but that it was rooted in some sound (albeit wrong) thinking. But then this:

"I grew up libertarian and felt that way into college (until Bush really opened my eyes), but now I seriously wonder if all their values boil down to are money in their pockets. Like, Paul Ryan could personally demand we rescind freedom of the press, while pissing on the American flag on camera, but as long as there are tax cuts on the way the libertarians would be like 'Welp, they're all corrupt!'"

and this:

"Libertarianism is fucking cancer. It's a short sighted, simpleton's, sociopathic ideology pushed by the very wealthy (Prager, Koch) and it needs to fucking die."

and this:

"In my experience libertarians are white, male, usually from wealthy backgrounds and tend to be under 25. PRRI did a demographic breakdown and found my speculation to be off a bit. In 2013, only 94% were white, only 68% were male, and only 62% were under 50.

In 5 minutes of google searching, I don't have direct evidence they are born wealthy, but my experience suggests that's the case for most of them. They didn't always go to private schools, but they often did. They certainly never needed student loans to get through college, like to smoke weed and don't want to be lectured about it, spend lots of time with porn, objectifying women, and don't want to hear about their responsibilities to others.

Libertarians are what happens when white boys are born on third base, but have been convinced by every adult in their lives they hit a triple. And boy do they get upset when they're told they're not as special and talented as they think they are.

I don't have a lot of evidence to back this up. My only personal experience is I've been teaching in academic research settings for about 15 years. I see "really smart and talented" libertarians come by all the time. They tend to be good at telling me what they know and bad at actually doing things.

Most of them will eventually grow out of it."

The White Man in That Photo
Amazing story of the white man in that photo. He seemingly suffered more at the hands of his white Australian compatriots than the black men did.

Obama: Republicans Are ‘Motivated, Principally, By Opposing Whatever It Is That I Propose’ : politics
psychology, politics = see comment by pacg: "I agree. Supposedly it's a collective action problem. There's greater variance in preferences within the Democratic Party than in the Republican Party apparently. So it's harder to form a unified front. The psychologist Jonathan Haidt lends some insight about the psychological differences between the parties. Simplified: democratic tend to favor individuality whereas republicans tend to favor the family." and the thread that comes below it "Liberals are incredibly nitpicky about their candidates. I have heard so many, mostly ridiculous, one issue reasons for liberals to not vote for a candidate. The only time I hear conservatives say they will not vote for a candidate, in the past 6 or 7 years, is when that candidate has worked well or agreed with Obama and agreed with any of his policies or seemed like a RINO..."

Black Wall Street "Tulsa Oklahoma 1921" pt 1 of 12 - YouTube
The first 8 minutes or so of the first clip is just pictures of hanging bodies. I don't think this is part of the official documentary, since another YouTube video of this same documentary (full movie in one video) didn't seem to have that in the beginning. See reddit post about this bookmarked with the same tags 2014-10-16

America's 12-week maternity policy has nothing to do with families
"The United States is the only industrialized country without a law guaranteeing paid maternity leave to new mothers." ................ history-vestiges-of-the-past-creep-into-the-present = 12 weeks of maternity leave has nothing to do with science or the good of the baby and everything to do with politics.

Attracted To Men, Pastor Feels Called To Marriage With A Woman : NPR
Because of dogmatic bullshit teachings rooted in feat, a man will ruin the life of a woman - and his own - to try to live according to someone else's rules. Fuck that shit. I'd love to see a follow-up on this couple every 5 years. Not hoping for failure, but I don't see how it can work.
