    Trotsky and myself seem to disagree quite a bit. Not That their isnt plenty of common ground as well, but I can say that for most serious posters.

    So when is Murka gonna attack the "Internet Research Agency"?

    <Lmaoo><Lmaoo><Lmaoo>

    You cant blame the Russians though. They know Murka is sharply divided along political, hierarchical, and racial lines. A country like this is the perfect type to sew divisive propaganda towards.

    It would be much harder to achieve something like this on a more homogenous country.

    so those internet trolls (or russian bots, or wikileaks) are dividing by exposing the truth?
    people are smart enough to tell what's crappy fake storys and what's helpful/revealing about someone.
    you should be mad at your own fake media that is hiding things, lying to you and pushes agendas for someone.

    So Trump got elected because of a bunch of shit posts from Russians. OK cool.

    I don’t even use Facebook so I can’t pull myself to agree or disagree with this. But no American needed “help” from another country to figure out that we didn’t want a crooked/bought and paid for Hilary as president.

    No where in my post did I say the words you ascribe to me. If you believe Hillary is any more bought and paid for than Trump then you also have a problem with discerning fact from fiction and should get better at that. It requires bias to believe this is the case. Try some introspection.

    CNN had this short segment where their reporter told this dumbshit old white woman she was played like a fiddle by the Russkies on her Facebook group and she refused to accept that and called bullshit.

    That reporter should be ashamed of himself. She didn't even understand what he was trying to say.

    She was denying she worked with the Russians (fucking DUH, do you think she knowingly did it?) and dude just kept accusing her.

    An old lady was basically scammed and this reporter thinks it's a good idea to harass her for it on national tv. Wtf?

    Comments on all media outlets online from "hard news" like WAPO to "soft news" like USAToday to even movie blogs I visit are sooooooooo partisan.

    So, if one side of the spectrum are Russian paid operatives, who is the other side?

    We aren't really that partisan of a society, are we?

    You know what's got my mind gears turning...

    Kim Jong-U.n. tweets about his "red button" and President Trump tweets about it nearly ad-nauseam.

    President Putin/Russia shows a video about a nuke headed to Florida...

    And yet not one single WORD about it from President Trump.

    No statement.
    No tweet.
    No nothing...

    Trump is legit terrified of Putin. Hes probably dealt with rough characters in the Russian mob and realizes Putin is a 1,000x more savage than they are.
