    It is funny though, him thinking his opinions matter to the world.

    I bet he is still trying to make a funny.

    About the most hysterical thing he has said.  “You didn’t build that”.  Right up there with clinging to gunsand religion.



    Is he trying to be funny or no?  I can never tell with these comedians that suddenly turn serious.

    not surprising, libertarians and cons seem to be missing the funny bone.  And empathy.

    I think the idea he had was good but poorly worded.  I took it to mean:

    "Yes, it's absolutely  true that to build a successful business you have to have smart ideas and be willing and able to work hard.  But in most businesses you need a team, a good team, and the help of others.  And even if you work in a one-person operated small business, unless you build it entirely from scratch by yourself, others are involved.  And at the very least, you need customers.  Unless you're a hermit living off the land, no one does it alone."

    At least that's how the several businesses I worked in, as well as  a few of my own, have worked. 

    I'd have coached Obama differently on that part of the speech.

    we knew what he meant...the chud used it against him

    Funny how some people still bring this up yet they ignore the absolute hatred that our current president spews.  It's hard to go a day without him saying something stupid and unpresidential.

    I'm just waiting for them to announce their Proud Boy Pride Parade - that should certainly lead to some strange assumptions.  ;)

    It’s not a “sides” issue.  White supremacists don’t inhabit a side. That would be giving it validation.

    This flies in the face of the belief many (here as well as everywhere else, these days) hold.  They believe that any stance deserves respect and recognition.

    I agree with your statement, of course, as someone who is not a racist and who tries to be a good human being.

    How many members does this group say they have? I couldn’t find the answer in an internet search and I’m not clicking on their website

  • Oh Shit? Do they all wear Fred Perry? What a bunch of assholes. Don't they know Fred Perry is for Mods and Rude Boys. They better not start wearing Ben Sherman and Lonsdale!

    The Proud Boys took off after the presidential election. Each of their official Facebook and Twitter pages had over 20,000 followers at the end of 2017. The website Rewire estimates there are roughly 6,000 members. Group meetings, according to McInnes, “usually consist of drinking, fighting, and reading aloud from Pat Buchanan’s Death of the West.”

    There are three degrees of membership within the Proud Boys, and to become a first degree in the “pro-West fraternal organization” a prospective member simply has to declare “I am a western chauvinist, and I refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.” To enter the second degree, a Proud Boy has to endure a beating until they can yell out the names of five breakfast cereals (in order to demonstrate “adrenaline control”) and give up masturbation because, in theory, it will leave them more inclined to go out and meet women. Those who enter the third degree have demonstrated their commitment by getting a Proud Boys tattoo. Any man — no matter his race or sexual-orientation — can join the fraternal organization as long as they “recognize that white men are not the problem.” Women have their own contingent called the Proud Boys’ Girls.
