How does one determine whether they've been discriminated against in today's special snowflake society?
When reports are published showing that one set of people is given harsher sentences for the same crimes; is discriminated against by lending institutions, by teachers, by police, by social workers, etc. It's just statistically factual that the major institutions in our society have a pro-white bias.

Trump has a 56 percent negative rating, Hillary Clinton's is 61 percent. I'd say each is equally divisive.

Would those pearl-clutchers offended by Mike appearing in the same photo as the dreaded Donald be as offended if it were Hillary instead? In other words, is the objection politically neutral ("It's bad for the BB brand to be associated with any divisive politician"), or is it partisan ( "Republicans bad, Democrats good")?
Depends where you get your numbers. An amalgam of wide scientific polls show his unfavorability higher than Clinton's by a significant margin.
Regarding partisanship, Trump is hardly your standard Republican of today or of history. I can't think of any presidential candidate who has actively and openly tried to pit Americans against each other to the degree that Trump has - that's divisive. Don't pretend that objections to Trump = objections to Republicans. The man makes me wistful for George W Bush, (who made me wistful for Dole, who made me wistful for George HW Bush. )
In any case, regardless of my wist, many many Republicans disavow Trump as a legit representative of their party. And Mike Love supporting Reagan or Bush is not the same as him supporting Trump.

Trump's message on many topics has resonated with millions who are sick of the press, outsourcing, corruption in government, an opaque government, and terrorism.  


It's also obviously resonated with white supremacists.

Linking Trump's broad base of support with a reviled fringe group such as white supremacists is unfair and misleading.  

Of course the NY Times is going to pull the race card. It is what they do.  One of their quasi affiliates is offering Johnson-Weld as a viable alternative.  That is a joke.  A pathetic one at that.  Anything to keep the DC status quo.  The Republican party has imploded.  It looks more like the version and ideology of yesteryears moderate Dems.  The Demmies have lost their way - becoming socialists.  The lines are blurred.    

Since 9/11 this country has gone downhill.  We got into Iraq in 2003 predicated on lies, and they got us out of Iraq with utter incompetence.  A strong leader must pull us out of this mess. Is is Bernie, Hillary, Donald or Gary?

  
Lol - how is showing that Trump's campaign panders to, and follows, white supremacists "misleading?" And how is pointing it out "pulling the race card?" News media shouldn't report white supremacist activity and presidential candidates ties to white supremacists?
Yesteryear's moderate dems were not theocrats. And, as the graph above shows, Democrat's political stances have barely changed, the right has moved further right.
I supplied actual sources for that. Do you have any?


And, regarding your last question, Trump will quite obviously, with his aggressive defensiveness, narcissism, divisiveness, authoritarianism, penchant to encourage violence, complete ignorance of how the legal system works, complete ignorance of how macroeconomics works, complete ignorance of how foreign policy works, and belligerence, get us into a mess like we've never seen in this country.

The second term of Obama has been disastrous from many standpoints and people generally do not want more of the same, in my opinion.  These "negative polls" are sort of a new phenomenon that is self-serving for candidates or parties to contort a numerical value for some negative implications of polling, which is not always a precise exercise.  Wink 
Obama's approval rating has been on an upswing. He's not had the highs of most prior presidents, nor the lows.  Mostly middling. Not the disaster partisans will try to sell you:

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/01/12/presidential-job-approval-ratings-from-ike-to-obama/
And among Democrats it's been consistently on a par with the favorability of past presidents with their party.

His approval among Republicans is strikingly low, but it's mainly because they've moved so far right:

They must be some lousy white supremacists, given the Donald's positive comments about Jewish people. That is not an endorsement of white supremacy or antisemitism on my part.

We all take what we can get. I know very few people who have ever seen a candidate who's exactly on the same page as them. But he's certainly given white supremacists the most hope they've had for a long time.

Of the three major candidates still in the race, Hillary would have the easiest time achieving ends. If he was actually one of the two major parties' candidates, Gary Johnson would as well. Trump and Bernie would end up blocked by Congress every step of the way. I'd rather see a president who can't get anything done. Calvin Coolidge was good at that.

Of all of them, Trump scares me the most regarding areas where the pres. has a lot of leeway - foreign policy, war, CIA etc. He's the most likely to abuse whatever power he has for self gain, without regard to how it affects the country or the world. Even domestically, he'd be willing to twist people's arms in completely unethical and illegal ways to get whatever it is he wants.
I think Congress will obstruct Clinton as much as they've done Obama, unless there's a big congressional change. Also, Clinton doesn't really propose any big changes.

This is ludicrous. But if cns is one's news source, it's understandable that one would be an alarmist and misunderstand actually what happened and who did it.
First: That we have a large debt is not indicative of a crash coming soon !
Second: Under Obama we have reduced the per capita deficit.
Third: The debt largely grew first under Reagan.
Fourth: The debt is supposed to grow and is expected to grow during down cycles. The current debt growth initiated with the crash of 2008 and has been slowing down as the economy recovers, which is what is supposed to happen.
Fifth: Under Bill Clinton, when the economy was in an up cycle, we ran a surplus, which is what we're supposed to do during an up cycle to cover for the down cycles.
Sixth: Reagan and W. Bush ran enormous deficits during up cycles, leaving no wiggle room for down cycles. They did what they were not supposed to do because they believe in Laffer curve fantasies, that have been disproven over and over, but fantasy has been the name of the game for Republican economics since Reagan - cut taxes, increase revenue! It's a joke and, like with most Trump proposals, we see that there are lots of idiots who will believe in pretty fantasies that will easily solve problems and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! because reality is a bit too complex for them.

In reference to the breakout of assholismo in the Trump/ML thread.
It seems the behavior of Trump fans has become as rude as their candidate's. I suspect permission to be rude is one of his main draws. Alright. Rude it is then.
The egging was all over the media last night, but one wouldn't know that if one was looking at right-wing media who were lying to them about it. The hypocrisy of the outrage after shrugging-off Trump violence will go right over their heads because they swim so deep in hypocrisy they can't smell it any more. It's not sub-par because HeyJude disagrees. It's sub-par because it repeats nonsense and illogic and emotional twaddle without reference to facts. In thread after thread people have shown proof that some of that twaddle is factually incorrect and yet it persists. Because either you don't care about what's actual versus propaganda or you're too cloudy in your brain to process information.  

And that anyone thinks that the anger Trump arouses with his message of hate is 'the right track' simply exposes their own hate. That post right there captured exactly the danger of Trump's supporters. They celebrate division. They hate other Americans and are glad to make them angry. It's disgusting. And Trump is cynically milking that hate for his own gain.

Talk about special snowflakes. "Ooh! I'm so mad that I don't get to be an asshole without people calling me out! Poor baby me!" What a bunch of whiners

This is a "Mike Love Meets Donald Trump" thread.  It invites discussion pro and con.  Donald Trump is a citizen until he is elected.  He has no official authority or capacity.

That is your opinion.  There is room for opposing viewpoints and why we have op-eds in our newspapers and in the electronic media and on television.  You call it "sub-par" because you don't agree with it and would perhaps rather censor those with whom you don't agree.  That is not the way America works.    

This board has always had the reputation as one of the least censored BB fora.  Some of us would like to see it remain that way, even though some are "uncomfortable." Newsflash.  Opposing viewpoints are uncomfortable.  The Forefathers and Framers of the Constitution were "uncomfortable" with political repression and resolved the problem.    

There is a "Sandbox" forum on this board for political posts/discussion/diatribes/crayon drawings. Your posts deviated from anything to do with Mike Love long ago.

"Least censored" doesn't mean you can just post anything you want here. Indeed, in moving your discussion to another forum, you're not even being censored. You're simply being re-routed.

You can keep insulting those who think your political posts are mouth-breathing, sub-par rants by contending they feel "uncomfortable" or simply "disagree", but at the end of the day the problem is that it's off-topic.

Hey Jude - that is a personal attack.  "Your posts?"  I could attack your web pages in the way they absolutely disrespect the Touring Band.  But I don't.  

Re-routed?  You are not a mod.  I am not insulting other opinions, merely disagreeing.  Please look at the topic name.  There is an rather recent attempt to "re-route" positions that are not agreed with.  I find it troubling and one reason why people are leaving this forum.    

My page, blog, etc. are all *ABOUT* the Beach Boys, so attacking them would be on-topic.

Nobody is attacking you. By "your posts", I specifically referenced that "Your posts" deviated from on-topic discussion. How is using the term "your posts" a personal attack? I'm simply saying, pleading, begging you to move your political stuff to the Sandbox.
Hey Jude - Not really.  It is a Mike/Touring Band diss.  It was not a neutral analysis of what the photo meant on your site.  

Mike called it a "photo op" just this morning.  They were both at Rolling Thunder, supporting the vets.  Brian is also supporting the vets and both BB's finding a different way to do it.  This is not "one size fits all." Rolling Thunder (sponsored by Harley-Davidson) publicizes the POW-MIA - Prisoner of War - Missing in Action, which was a huge Vietnam War issue which resonates with Baby Boomers.  

It is also a specific non-profit to also deal with mesothelioma (cancer) which was a result of asbestos exposure.  They are "raising awareness."  

Just my opinion.  

And, Happy Friday, people!  Beer

Also interesting that I saw one of the people running last weekends POW-MIA thing on TV, and the TV host asked (gingerly) if they only invited "candidates like Trump" which gave rise to the guy saying how Hillary would "raise the deficit just like Obama" or something like that. So I guess without even answering the question he sure answered it: this thing is for right wingers (no lefties allowed!).

Sweetdudejim - yes, I think your are correct, that it did have a "tone" that was Hillary was not their friend.  I guess they are frustrated. I remember Vietnam vets with whom I went to college, very reluctant to even say they were vets.    
Oh BS. Have you checked out Veterans Challenge Islamophobia and other veteran groups challenging Trump for using them as props? That rally was right wing because the bikers are right wing.

Emily, if you think I have hate in my heart, you don't know me at all.  

My point is that Trump is inciting anger from people who leech off the system as well as people far to the left.  Some of these people are so afraid of losing their handouts that they're rioting at Trump events.  If that's not hate, I don't know what is.

This is hilarious. Trump has shown NO INTEREST in capping stuff like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, or any welfare programs (which is partially why it boggles my mind that someone like Paul Ryan supports him). So it's hardly that they are "afraid of losing their handouts."

If anything, I bet those "handouts" would either increase or stay the same under a (shudder) President Trump.

If anything, I bet those "handouts" would either increase or stay the same under a (shudder) President Trump.

Then why are these morons rioting and causing physical harm to Trump supporters? 
Lol. Why are the Trump supporters also causing physical harm to protesters? There are violent people in the world. Only one candidate encourages the violence though.
And they are not protesting because Trump has threatened to take away their "hand outs". Wishful thinking. It's Trump's thing: he's not telling you what he'll do, so you can pretend he'll do whatever you want to pretend. But he has proposed nothing that would lessen "hand outs."
They're protesting because he's a disgusting demagogue inciting violence and hatred.

In reference to the breakout of assholismo in the Trump/ML thread.
It seems the behavior of Trump fans has become as rude as their candidate's. I suspect permission to be rude is one of his main draws. Alright. Rude it is then.
The egging was all over the media last night, but FdP wouldn't know that because she was looking at right-wing media who were lying to her about it. The hypocrisy of the outrage after shrugging-off Trump violence will go right over their heads because they swim so deep in hypocrisy they can't smell it any more. It's not sub-par because HeyJude disagrees. It's sub-par because you consistently repeat nonsense and illogic and emotional twaddle without reference to facts. In thread after thread people have shown you proof that some of your twaddle is factually incorrect and yet you persist with it. Because either you don't care about what's actual verses propaganda or you're too cloudy in your brain to process information.  
You can only grasp a reactionary story. You make up/parrot from Breitbart narratives that have absolutely no supporting evidence.  Like calling it "censorship" for a board to want this BS in the sandbox.
And that KDS thinks that the anger Trump arouses with his message of hate is 'the right track' simply exposes his own hate. That post right there captured exactly the danger of Trump's supporters. They celebrate division. They hate other Americans and are glad to make them angry. It's disgusting. And Trump is cynically milking that hate for his own gain.

Talk about special snowflakes. "Ooh! I'm so mad that I don't get to be an asshole without people calling me out! Poor baby me!" What a bunch of whiners

Emily, if you think I have hate in my heart, you don't know me at all.  

My point is that Trump is inciting anger from people who leech off the system as well as people far to the left.  Some of these people are so afraid of losing their handouts that they're rioting at Trump events.  If that's not hate, I don't know what is.  


I know your posts and they're full of hate and anger -  for people who disagree with you about Mike Love and for people who challenge the hegemony and for people you perceive as "leeches".  I apologize for thinking they represent your actual thoughts and what's in your heart.

My posts are full of hate and anger?  Give me a break. 

Look, think what you wanna think about me.  I'm not about to engage in another debate with somebody who actually believes "white privilege" is real. 

Have a good weekend. 
No, you'd rather throw flames and run.
