Two lifelong Republicans leave the GOP in support of trans grandchild
  • I think it’s just frustration that they can’t take the leap that every trans child has grandparents. It’s like someone realizing that knives are sharp and can hurt their baby and then finally connecting that voting for the sharp-blades-for-infants party could be harmful to people!

  • The MAGA Plan to End Free Weather Reports | Project 2025 would all but dissolve the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
  • I don’t know, but they don’t talk about social security like it’s ‘free money for seniors’, they paid into it. We pay taxes for these services, they shouldn’t be framed as free, like we’re freeloaders and should be thankful we had it so long (that’s the trumpist framing).

  • When people say two things "cannot be compared", they had to compare them to come to this conclusion. Are 'dissimilar' or 'unequal' better words?
  • What they actually mean is rather "these two things are very dissimilar", or "these two things are unequal".

    I think what they mean is “This is an invalid comparison”. For instance, the idea that two concepts are “apples and oranges” invokes the idea that apples and orange can’t be compared. But of course they could be compared as fruits (which would you prefer to get in line at the cafeteria? Aren’t you inherently inviting a comparison? I’m with you on that).

    However, if one were asking whether golden delicious apples are better than honeycrisp apples and someone butts in that navel oranges are the best, they’d get the same “navel oranges and golden delicious/honeycrisp apples can’t be compared” response because they’ve brought up an invalid comparison in the context of the comparison. Apples and oranges.

  • Actor George Clooney, a high-profile Biden supporter and fundraiser, asks president to leave race
  • Sorry I don’t understand what you mean, are you saying he did indicate that? When? If not, I’m following your hypothetical out. If a president announces he’s leaving (or otherwise is transitioning power to another administration) they’ve basically ceded the remainder of their administrative power.
