Sanders expected to endorse Clinton today in Portsmouth, NH. There's a good interview with her on Ezra Klein's podcast just released today: http://podbay.fm/show/1081584611

Nah, Klimmer isn't (wasn't) a troll, he's the real deal. Just go to the 'Massive Ark on the Moon' thread for verification of his obsession(s) and serial posting. All his stuff is still there, but he's missing from the Donald thread.

Curious about what happened. He sure was a persistent bugger.

well, you guys seem certain that klimmer was a troll

a troll is an intentionally obnoxious, confrontational disrupting s.o.b.

I don't see klimmer that way, rather it was clear he was absolutely rigid about his literal bible certainty

and from that came his problem with a woman running for US President

he wasn't a troll, but he was bullheaded as hell

Dallas Shooting thread locked down

It seems when the right wingers go down the rabbit hole of crazy, the thread gets locked down to stop the insanity

I would lock it down as well

there's no hope for a sensible discussion with gun nutz
bible thumpers, or right wing extremists

Hey mods -

Perhaps you could discard the Dallas Shooting thread.

http://www.supertopo.com/climbers-forum/2841065/Dallas-Shooting

It has devolved into a bunch of dudes harping on "black thugs." It's getting kinda racist.

I was speaking tonight with a buddy who was almost caught in the crossfire. Want to show him some respect.

I wish I could post more pictures, but my work precludes it. I can't be associated with this stuff and all the gun talk.

Just here for the climbing. It's summer. Thanks.

If you haven't checked it out, you should just to see what these gun nutz post, I was pillared for trying to reason with them on BLM.

In 2008, before Obama became savy (politically correct) about what to say he uttered this gem, Hillary joined the right wing in criticizing him:

"And it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations," Obama said.
The comments were posted Friday on The Huffington Post, creating a wave of criticism from Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. John McCain, and other politicians as the April 22 Pennsylvania primary draws near.
"The people of faith I know don't ?cling to' religion because they're bitter. People embrace faith not because they are materially poor, but because they are spiritually rich," Clinton said at a rally in Indianapolis.

Part of the problem with race relations in this country is the inability to honestly criticize African Americans. Doing so often gets the speaker labelled a narrow-minded, ignorant bigot. And the lines remain drawn.

Do you have proof that there aren't as many whites killing whites as you claim about the black killing blacks

add up all the:

husbands killing their wife's lover
wives killing their husband out of self defense
tots shooting tots
white suicide
white killing blacks
white Christian terrorists
white militia deaths
white inner city crime, drugs, gangs

and then compare that number to the BS you post about

When we start to Honestly criticize white on white Crime and killings!!!
When will it start????

Republican Platform

1st issue, make Pornography illegal

Republican delegates unanimously adopted an amendment to their draft platform Monday morning that called pornography “a public health crisis” and a “public menace” that is destroying lives.

“Pornography, with his harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and well being,” the amendment stated.

Reince Pribus

also on their Platform:
bash the gays
keep the coloreds out
keep women barefoot and pregnant
police bathrooms for transgenders
keep wages low
keep job insecurity high
start a new war with the axis of evil

He was spot on.

Having represented numerous parties in construction dispuates over the last 38 years, I've run across my share of people whose idea of good business is to stiff those who provide goods or services to their projects. It combines two vile characteristics: dishonesty and stupdity. I find this history of stiffing subs almost as troubling as his mercantilist trade position. Either one should disqualify one from becoming our President.

A majority of Republicans think Trump is well qualified to be President
and will actually make America Great again

It's their hope that he will fix all their problems with his mighty bluster

so you can't trust Republicans when it comes to judging character
