Josef Stalin Would Be Proud

If someone had told Josef Stalin that in less than 70 years after his death the leader of the free world would be strutting around in his capital city on Independence Day like some third world tin horn dictator complete with full military display, he would have considered his mission accomplished.

Sccrendo-Why do you keep posting political crap on a car forum. Guess you guys would have a meltdown if I started a Trump Reelection Update thread with videos and campaign updates. Or a gun owners support thread. This forum isnt for political debates so that is why I post stuff that annoys or counteracts your viewpoints and dont start political threads. . Whats going to be the newrst thread? People posting pictures of their pets or what they had for lunch?

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 17, 2019

@Tesla2018,
+1

Did I do that right? You put a plus one when you're really agree with a comment? Because that's what you guys do all the time.

sabbia | August 18, 2019

@Tesla2018. The very first post in these forums is by Tesla itself. It stays as the first post because it explains what posting here is all about.

"Tesla’s forum provides an online meeting space for owners and enthusiasts to exchange ideas that are entertaining, helpful and useful. We encourage you to participate and only ask that you be respectful of others."

Don't like this particular thread? Then don't read it. There are hundreds of others. Just stay away as neodweeb once did but then found, inexplicably, that he couldn't stay away.

I remind you that you are the one who posted that you yell at crying infants. Go ahead and post about assault weapons and Trump's re-election.

Tesla2018 | August 18, 2019

General Discussion about Tesla, EVs, clean tech and more is what the Generall Forum is for..

....ideas that are entertaining, helpful and useful. We encourage you to participate and only ask that you be respectful of others

Some of the posts are totally disrespectful and are not helpful or useful but only used to spread your propaganda and then you thow a tantrum and start flagging at anyone that disagees with you. You are right, I have no patience for crying babies, just didnt think that thete were so many of them on this forum.

Im not going to start new threads unless it is car related or helpful. Were you guys banned from the other Tesla sites, since. Im sure moderated ones wouldnt put up with your nonsense.

sabbia | August 18, 2019

@Tesla2018 Some of us, particularly those who don't yell at crying babies, whether we like the crying of babies or not, find scientific information about climate change, Tesla's role in a green economy the value of vaccines, etc. helpful and useful.

Even your unsolicited personal confessions have a certain usefulness.

SCCRENDO | August 18, 2019

@sabbia. I think you have explained that very well. I believe we have been very patient with him when he confessed to yelling at crying babies and even when we heard about his family’s and friend’s experiences when caught on the wrong side of Trump care. Thank you @sabbia.
Now back to the topic. Is the Shell company behaving democratically in docking their workers pay if they don’t attend a Trump rally. I feel that kind of behavior should be more likely found in North Korea and even present day Russia. Stalin would have rewarded the Shell Company for doing that.

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 18, 2019

@SCCRENDO,
I completely agree with you. Stalin would have rewarded the Shell company. What will most likely happen is that a grievance will be filed with the union and everyone will get paid the same.
If it is determined that the president is somehow involved in Shell’s shenanigans then I’m sure that Nadler will start another investigation.

"They think voters are disgusting and immoral. They want to force them to be half as virtuous as they are."

No, we have faith that the MAJORITY of Americans are decent, hard working people of all colors, sizes and shapes.

Trump voters fear the "brown menace" and most of you probably support bringing back anti-miscegenation laws. You know, the ones that existed in your Leave it to Beaver "great" America.

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 18, 2019

This is the scene in our story where it is revealed that rxlawdude has not been taking his medication.

rxlawdude | August 18, 2019

@Neo, this is the place where part of your moniker, "dweeb," becomes painfully apparent. ;-)

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 18, 2019

@rxlawdude
Good one! Nice!

We need emojis.

Tesla2018 | August 19, 2019

Looks like its the opposite of MLK and Columbus Day. Some companies are closed and you can take the day off. Others say you can work, but not get overtime or holiday pay for it and then have another day off instead.

Oh rxlawguy. I think all illegal aliens should be deported. Even white Canadian ones that overstay their visas. Shouldnt be based on race or country you come from , but on the crime that you committed. Its like a speed trap now. Cops set them up in the same areas all the time kn areas where people are most likely to violate the law. One neighbor complained about selective enforcement because he always got ticketed for parking illegally. But since he did it everyday, he had a better chance of being caught.

SCCRENDO | August 19, 2019

Hmm. Placing Trump in the same class as MLK. Sounds like the logic of someone who yells at crying babies

sabbia | August 19, 2019

This comes from Healthline.com. I'm sure that many here would agree.

"[Yelling] scares children and makes them feel insecure. ... If yelling at children is not a good thing, yelling that comes with verbal putdowns and insults can be qualified as emotional abuse. It's been shown to have long-term effects, like anxiety, low self-esteem, and increased aggression

rxlawdude | August 19, 2019

Um. Tesla2018,
"A 2017 Homeland Security report found that the number of “known got aways”— an estimate Border Patrol agents developed — fell from 600,000 in 2006 to roughly 106,000 in 2016.
In contrast, Homeland Security found that 700,000 foreigners who came by plane or ship overstayed their visa from October 2016 to September 2017

Overstays accounted for only 34 percent of illegal entries into the U.S. in 2004 but by 2014 they made up 66 percent of new entries. The study estimates 42 percent of the 11 million immigrants believed to be living in the U.S. illegally as of 2014 had overstayed their visa.. " -AP FACT CHECK

I think you and the other Trumptards don't give one rat's ass about visa overstays by white people. I only hear about the brown menace crossing the border.

Facts matter. Fix the BIGGER problem first. Or, is it really just the color of the skin that determines priority for deportation?

jimglas | August 19, 2019

the red hat is the new white hood

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 19, 2019

I personally want all overstays out of this country asap. Don’t care if they’re Canadian or Colombian. Come in the right way and leave when told. It’s our law. If you sneak in then you may be staring in an episode of Orange is the New Black.

SCCRENDO | August 19, 2019

Sadly @tesla 2018 has shown up to a 3 dimensional chess game with a checkerboard.

Tesla2018 | August 19, 2019

Rxlawdude. They concentrate their efforts on whete it is easier to catch the most people. I wish they would make everyone entering on a visa have some kind of exploding ankle braclet that would go off if they overstayed or a microtracking chip. I was shocked when I first found out decades ago that the government wasnt going after people that overstayed their visits.

Sabbia- I also yelled at my brothers puppy when it chewed up my stuff. At that age, children and animals are clueless. Its like yelling at a fetus.Do you remember anything from when you were only a couple of months old? I can only remember things from when I was about 2 or 3 years old.

You mean to tell me that you never yelled at your kids? Thats why some millenials are the way they are today. Nobody ever told them no since they were afraid of hurting their feelings. God forbid they still had the draft and they had to deal with a drill sergeant or have to get a job with demanding bosses.

Screeno Im not afraid of losing the chess game because you will give me a participation trophy if I lose and start crying. Good thing we arent playing a game of marbles since you seem to have lost some of yours.

Jimglas- Before Trump bought Mar a Lago, blacks and Jews werent allowed to join. He changed the rules because he knew they were wrong. The club also has many charity benefits that benefit poor people and minorities. And people with Red hats dont go around killing and hanging people and burning their churches down- racist white supremacist assholes which Trump and his supporters hate do. Its like saying all black people iin Ferguson who rioted and burnt the city down are backed by Obama. And Mar a Lago only has a steam room not a gas chamber.

SCCRENDO | August 19, 2019

@Sabbia. Would you feel comfortable if Tesla2018 had access to a semi-automatic near a crowd, particularly if there were illegal immigrants or kids under 2 or pets who would not remember it.

Tesla2018 | August 20, 2019

Sccrendo- Guess you didnt live here during Ww2 or the Cold War.so you dont remember what it was like.My dad and his friends grew up on the beach and all had guns since Nazis tried sneaking in. The Air Force would drop bombs on U boats to sink them. Airforce planes and helicopters with missiles flew along the beach when we only had a 12 mike border to stop Russians from sneaking in or spying.Try sneaking into any other country and you will wind up in a bodybag. I have a friend who grew up in a foreign country and his father was a diplomat. He had far better things than semi automatic weapons that the government gave him.. A few months ago, one of his friends who worked for the government was almost killed when a group attempted a takeover. He shot several of them. And my friend had drug dealers that took over his property when he went to visit, so the army took care of that problem for him.
If people want to come here legally that is fine. I don't condone killing or shooting people but other countries do far worse things than we do. The tents and cages that the illegals are living in here are nicer than the cardboard boxes that they were living in before. Granted most illegals arent criminals, but what would happen if everyone in the US decided to go to Canada because of free healthcare or Saudi Arabia since I believe they have free college?

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 20, 2019

The real question is why are the Democrats so hell bent on flooding our streets with illegals. I think its becoming obvious that the Democrats are going back to their old ways of cheap labor. The more illegals that they can bring in, the cheaper the labor. Soon the Democrats will be on par with the slave owners of old, except this time the slaves will be Spanish speaking. Shame on all of you for fighting to bring back slavery!

See how easy it is to say absurd things? MAGA hat is the new white hood? What a shithead thing to say.

andy.connor.e | August 20, 2019

an LA times article full of opinion.

jimglas | August 20, 2019
andy.connor.e | August 20, 2019

Did you read all 3 of those articles? Nothing but opinion. Its like a TV media report.

andy.connor.e | August 20, 2019

Trump, Russia, Possible Collusion.

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 20, 2019

The Dayton shooter loved Lizzy Warden and Bernie. Anything you’d like to say about him, Jim?

andy.connor.e | August 20, 2019

The socialist regime is causing mass shootings. See how easy it is to manipulate data interpretation?

jimglas | August 20, 2019

36 of 37 politically inspired shootings have stated trump inspired them

andy.connor.e | August 20, 2019

Ben Shapiro inspired them.

SCCRENDO | August 20, 2019

How about I condemn the Dayton shooter even though he is a leftist like me. I would like to see guns taken out of the hands of all crazies. The reason we attack Trump, the NRA and the Republican lapdogs is that they encourage guns and do not want to restrict guns. In addition as noted their has been an overall preponderance of white supremacist shootings and not Radical Islamic Terrorist or many Antifa shootings. And there is no doubt that these are encouraged by Trump. I am even concerned about one of our posters who thinks it is ok to yell at babies or puppies, to attach exploding ankle bracelets to immigrants. Would anyone here be ok with him possessing a weapon

Neomaxizoomdweebie | August 20, 2019

Internet muscles aren’t cool and make people say a lot of stoopid things. I’m sure the exploding ankle bracelet thing was a not to the movie “The Running Man” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. He is the best Californian I know of next to Ronald Reagan.
How should we go about putting the genie back in the bottle with all of these guns? I’m curious to know, because asking everyone to turn in their guns is a curious solution.

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

"asking everyone to turn in their guns is a curious solution."

Yep it is. Too extreme.

SCCRENDO | August 21, 2019

They have done it in Australia with extreme success. It certainly will not completely solve the US problem and does need to be coupled with other measure. There is no magic bullet (excuse the pun). But we need to tackle the problem aggressively from all directions to have a significant impact

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

When the radical left starts to calm down, i would feel more comfortable banning more guns.

jimglas | August 21, 2019

Antifa isn't a movement, its what everyone should be. There are no good nazis

SCCRENDO | August 21, 2019

@andy. You are throwing out labels. Your innuendo is that anyone anti-gun is an angry radical leftist. I agree we are agngry and we should be. And our anger will remain angry until the issue is addressed in a serious manner. I am angry that my child's/grandchild's school is not a safe place. I am angry that visiting Walmart (although I am not a Walmart shopper) could get me killed. But when I get angry it is a calm rational anger. Unlike Trump and friends that explode irrationally at the slightest crap. Try argue the facts rather than throwing in strawman arguments.

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

"Your innuendo is that anyone anti-gun is an angry radical leftist."

Really when did i say that?

jimglas | August 21, 2019

do you understand what "innuendo" means?

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

I dont recall when i said people who are anti-gun are the "angry radical leftists". In fact i did not specify any particular person when i said radical left. But perhaps since you decided to put words in my mouth and make the assumptions for me based on a point that i was not even making, maybe you consider people who are "anti-gun" to be "angry radical leftists". Because i literally didnt even say that, nor did i even indicate who is radical left, nor did i even use the term angry. You two would make great politicians.

jimglas | August 21, 2019

How do you define "radical leftist"?
What are the criteria to fit your definition?

SCCRENDO | August 21, 2019

Would you say I am an angry radical leftist? And by extenion you think nothing should be done until I "calm down"? My point above stands

sabbia | August 21, 2019

@Andy. You write "When the radical left starts to calm down, i would feel more comfortable banning more guns."

Calm down, now, is it. As Jim Glas asks, and I think many are curious, does Bernie Sanders need to calm down before we ban more guns? Bernie's kind of radical left. Elizabeth Warren...does she need to calm down?

Joe Biden probably needs to "calm down."

Please don't be shy. How about those disloyal Americans such as Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Please tell us if they are part of the radical left about which you write.

Does Omar Mateen need an AR15 to protect him against the radical left? Is that why he killed so many?

Does Stephen Paddock need a bump stock to protect against the radical left in Las Vegas?

Connor Betts likes Elizabeth Warren (although Betts had no manifesto and didn't ape Trump's words). Does Connor Betts need to calm down before you would agree to limit bump stocks? AK47s?

Good news. Santino William Legan did calm down because he is among the dead he caused. So, based on the fact that he calmed down, (okay, you're right, he wasn't the radical left) but because he calmed down anyway, can we ban AR15s?

jimglas | August 21, 2019

How has trump "got the nukes out of the fanatics hands" or done anything but make us weaker in the world?

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

"Would you say I am an angry radical leftist? And by extenion you think nothing should be done until I "calm down"? My point above stands"

Never said you were an angry radical leftist. You just did.

"you think nothing should be done until I "calm down"?"

Didnt say that. Again, i would second the notion of politician as a career.

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

@sabbia

Yes i think the radical left should calm down with their influence on politics, personal liberties and such. If you know your 20th century history, attacks on our basic liberties, identity politics, and blame on groups of people is what propelled nations into disaster. The fundamental existence on our right to guns is to have the ability to defend against a tyrannical government. I dont think its unlikely for that to happen to the U.S, and i think we should be very careful what kind of gun laws we pass.

jimglas | August 21, 2019

Again, What is the "radical left" you allude to?

andy.connor.e | August 21, 2019

I have to explain to you what the radical left is? The louder the opinion the smaller the knowledge.
