I overheard him as he was talking to a customer; he says that the country is currently under martial law (and the liberal media refuses to tell us), Trump actually won and will be reinstated in March, and that tons of liberals will then be thrown into jail.

...How the hell is this reality??

Dang that sucks. Ive worked for a few right wing nuts in the past though. The best thing in my experience is to just avoid the subject of politics entirely around them.

This is good advice no matter what someone's politics are. You're never going to change their mind, so why get into an argument with someone who has the power to fuck you over at work?

Same reason why you shouldn't bring up religion, or abortions, or whether or not pineapple belongs on a pizza.

I imagine the allegation there is that the media refuses to call it that. He's probably referencing to the lockdowns, curfews, travel restrictions, and everything else right now.

Also, does "Liberal" mean something different colloquially than politically?

Freedom of the individual and little government interference, that fits my image of Republicans.

Yeah generally it means democratics. But the liberal party is more similar to the republican party.
The idea is that it's for social liberals rather than economic liberals.

Honestly the name's kinda a shitshow, but, it's what it is.

Yes.

Arguably, there's three different mutually exclusive definitions for the word in the US. Lower-case "liberal" is the overall political philosophy, while capital "Liberal" is used to describe the political ideology that claims to be "liberal" but generally isn't. And then you've got the original definition of "liberal", which is also referred to as "classical liberalism" these days, but which is essentially what is currently known as "libertarianism" (which is itself somewhat different from the ideology of the people who actually call themselves Libertarians).

And that's not getting into things like how the US skews farther right than most of the rest of the world at the moment, so Europe generally thinks the American Left is too far Right anyway, and gets confused whenever Americans talk about it.



shadowsword87 posted...
The idea is that it's for social liberals rather than economic liberals.

Which is why one of the standard descriptions of libertarians is that they're "socially liberal, fiscally conservative".

Which, again, is kind of ironic because that definition is literally what "liberal" originally meant in the first place.

And let me guess, such people would also apply the word to me, while there is a far more common way to refer to people like me in the US. (Although that descriptor is also quite wrong when applied to me...)

Basically America has liberals who aren't traditionally liberal and conservatives who aren't traditionally conservative. It's why I prefer to use leftists instead of liberals, because most "liberals" run contrary to classical and other actual liberalism.

and theyd just tell him No, man, its already covered. Goodbye

Rods of God are an actual military thing, whether or not it's actually implemented I'm not sure, but, it shows up occasionally in scifi media.
Basically you have a tungsten rod in orbit, and then drop it directly on the target. About the same explosive capability as a nuclear weapon without the radioactive fallout and the precision of dropping a big stick from orbit with a computer (aka very good), plus, unlike atomic weapons, it won't fail to explode on impact.

The crazy nutter shit though is another thing, but, rods from god is an actual thing. It's also called orbital bombardment.

The ones that are loud and proud about it actually have a modicum of my respect. If you truly believe this stuff is right and true, then don't be afraid to stand by it. But no, just like those trying to worm out of prison time for storming the capitol, they're terrified of the "consequences" portion of walking the walk.
