I get that we have our tribes and biases, but we generally still respect eachother as not 'part of the problem'. Or in general, that any of us are less or more American for our beliefs---cultural insensitivity towards those that aren't American to begin with, aside.

I see this crap, and I'm always like, "wait, do I post 'hail trump' videos back, or do I not?"



I wouldn't care, but I can't vent about it on facebook to virtually 3/4th of my aunts and uncles that post this absolute crap.

How is Aurora these days? I used to spend time there in the late 90s - visiting and shopping at markets, game stores, etc. Miss the weather.

It is ...weiiiiird.

So, Cherry Creek School district housing is BLOWING UP. Like, that's not just the nice part of Aurora, but the nice part of the city. The land is green and good.

Meanwhile, the other places are also...sort of getting better? Rent is going up insane throughout the metro area, and that's putting the squeeze on people from the bottom, up.

Bonus points is that our dispensaries are allowed to stay open until 10, which means that we have some serious business here.

Sadly, the schools are short like 31 million dollars, somehow. The next door neighbor has her finger on the pulse of it. I guess the gentrification has lead to kindergarden classes that are 1/3rd the size they used to be all over. Bonus points though, that let my son enroll in an out of district school that's much better.

This notion that somehow Trump supporters or Republicans are more patriotic is idiotic.

Even if, patriotism is not a virtue in itself. Patriotism is an emotion and emotions are important as a starting point, but they are not the be-all and end-all.

Atrocious acts have been commited out of love.

Yes, considering they are abetting an adversary of the United States, they are most likely treasonous.

Isn't treason one of those things that most Americans frown upon? Except the water carriers for Trump, that is.

Where is the evidence of treason? Shouting treason without hard proof is akin to fake news.

Treason is aiding and abetting an adversary. Where there is smoke, there is fire.

That water you are carrying is going to melt you, so good luck with that.

Can you imagine what all those WW2, Korean, and Vietnam war vets that have passed on would think about their country now - where many of its citizens are just puppets of the Russian government?

Pedantic psychology aside: I wouldn't constrain patriotism to emotion alone. I'd say it's a set of attitudes, behavior, and cognition, like in many aspects of social psychology.

(I might be wrong, too!)
