    I notice a theme to all the bullshit in the news: 90% of the worst people in America seem to CONSISTENTLY be white republicans (or just republicans in general)
    i've met a guy in my gym who left the klan party to join democrats because he actually "woke" up and realized his former party is a sexist, homophobe, INSANE, pile of shit RACIST clusterfuck

    Kash Jackson is a great guy. You should look into his actual story, including how the state gets kickbacks for separating kids from their parents.

      @Rand Paul like all the other candidates so much better. This guy was supposly beat there children and is walking free ur pretty ignorant rand Paul if he did truly beat his children. And for paying 10,000 of child support every month good luck surviving Illinois.

    • Rand Paul
      Rand Paul Year ago

      Eliyahu Neiman You only say that cause you are a known libertarian troll. If he is a "great guy" why doesn't he have a job and pay what he owes? I thought Libertarians were all about person reasonably, not blaming the system.
      But I will leave you to editing Kash Jackson's Wikipedia page to make him look good while deleting the truth and about the false accusations he constantly makes towards people. We see you constantly editing it. Not sure why you are afraid of letting people know the truth.

  • Kristen Smoke

    I know Benjamin Winderweedle aka "Kash Jackson" personally and I just want you all to know that you are foolish if you believe everything an "ex" says. Also very ignorant if you believe everything a family court judge reports. And one more thing, it's absurd to take anything you see on the tv as the gospel truth. 🙄There are reasons beyond some people's knowledge or comprehension as to why some owe so much in child support. So take several seats unless it happens to you and you know what you're talking about. 🙄

    • Rand Paul
      Rand Paul Year ago +1

      Kristen Smoke So you shouldn't believe everything an "ex" says? Isn't he an ex? Guess we shouldn't believe him either according to your logic. And I know him too, he refuses to get a job which makes a deadbeat dad. You are only a libertarian troll

    • William Keys

      Kristen Smoke Year ago

      But why is it so hard to believe that some judges lie and make false reports? Why is it so hard to believe that some judges make orders that are sometimes impossible to follow? For instance, continuing to up the child support, forcing people into bankruptcy and lessening the visitation as well. (Very cruel) I don't really have the energy to go into what I really want to say. I'm emotionally exhausted from my own custody battle with my ex. It has traumatized me to the point where I can barely use my brain anymore. I suppose outsiders will never understand so there's really no point for me to try and argue about it.

    • William Keys
      William Keys Year ago +4

      OK Kristen, so you are claiming extenuating circumstances. Without an inside view of court proceedings, we can only go off of public record. Public record shows that Mr. Winderweedle owes child support. Without further evidence, we can only go with what has been presented. Judges just don't hand out court orders without reason.

    • Kristen Smoke
      Kristen Smoke Year ago

      William Keys Nope. Still wrong, try again.

    Actually, there is something right about what Fisher says. Although, I don't agree with the ignoring the right to abortion. I can't argue that laws should be obeyed merely because they are the law. When I was teaching I would ask law students to think of a law that they would disobey for moral reasons. For me it would be the Fugitive Slave Act that required American citizens to turn in escaped slaves, also the Japanese internment,

  • Kristian Brandt
    Kristian Brandt Year ago +4

    How can Dan Fisher actually run for governor? He's running with abortion and his reasons for wanting a ban on human abortion are entirely religious. As the US constitution guarentees the seperation of church and state, wouldn't this technically mean that Fisher's campaign is illegal?

    • Kristian Brandt
      Kristian Brandt Year ago

      headcoLd 7 And being a xenophobic hypocrite is perfectly legal. I just don't see how pushing legistration based on religious beliefs is.

    • headcoLd 7
      headcoLd 7 Year ago

      Kristian Brandt that's just the right wing way. The Constitution only matters when it matches the donors demands.

    • Kristian Brandt
      Kristian Brandt Year ago

      headcoLd 7 I just don't see how all the major Republican players can regard the constitution as an almost holy document when it comes to things such as gun control, and then move on to piss and shit all over it when it comes to freedom of religion and seperation of church and state.

    • headcoLd 7
      headcoLd 7 Year ago

      Kristian Brandt I'd hope so but it's constantly a policy topic in many elections, doesn't seem to cause a stir in the world of Constitutions

      They are not ripping Colbert, political satire is almost as old as the first ruler. However, Colbert and Klepper took it to a new level.

      Colbert was a parody of Bill O'Reilly. Jordan Klepper is a parody of Tucker Carlson/Alex Jones

      Michael Feather because Republicans during the Colbert Report days were often misguided and hypocritical but not bat-shit insane. Now we have literal Nazis and paedophiles running for office and a man whose joke of a career was saved by a joke of a reality television program as president.

  • OneNewHope

    You missed Art Jones, the LITERAL Nazi that won the GOP nomination for an Illinois congressional seat.

    • Dorian sapiens
      Dorian sapiens Year ago

      There are at least eight Nazi or white supremacist/nationalist candidates for federal office this year. One of the most high-profile is Paul Nehlen, who's likely to get the GOP nomination to replace Paul Ryan in Wisconsin.
      And, that doesn't include current members of Congress who haven't previously been labeled as white supremacist/nationalist (even though their views clearly fall into that category), just because those terms seemed inconceivable in mainstream American politics before the age of trump: Steve King, Matt Gaetz, Joe Arpaio, Dana Rohrabacher.
      Here's an article about it from April 2018:

    Don't diss Sheriff Joe. He almost single-handedly took us from honorable mention to flat-out winner of Bill Maher's Stupidest State in 2016. Or maybe that honor was because of our disproportionate charter school grads. I don't know. Just crossing the state line has a penalty of 10 IQ points. Imagine how I feel. My grandparents were born in Arizona. I didn't learn to tie my shoes until I was a teenager.

    Men who hate paying child support... why? What did you expect to do when someone else is looking after YOUR child? Use up all their time and money on the child while you wander off without responsibility when your relationship ends? Almost sounds like entitlement there... My bf's father has to split 25% of his income equally between the NINETEEN kids he fathered (that we knew of). My bf's mom got a measly £4 a week! HAHAHAHHA If you can't dish out, don't take your dick out.
