    I've not heard of panic and anxiety attacks, or seeking pyschiatric treatment, for anyone due to outrage about liberals.

    Although one could say that Quaker probably should seek some sort of treatment.

    It's funny how everyone mostly ignores she clearly didn't write that speech....Kind of ruins the authenticity when she's coached to read a speech some adults wrote.

    But even if she had, there was nothing profound or compelling about it.

    Right, they just go out and shoot people instead.

    Time has been a joke for nearly 100 years.  I think what they are doing to Greta is child abuse, however I give 0 fucks about her winning "person of the year."  It was pretty much expected.  Hilarious that some people apparently did not see this coming.

    The ones that are actually covered in the news at least...

    Do you really want to start comparing the murder rates between Republicans and Democrats?

    Not really. Was just making a post that is just as goofy as yours. Do they actually keep score somewhere though?

    I wasn't being goofy, just stating facts.

    People - celebrities, even - on Twitter have admitted to needing counseling since Trump got elected.  And I just posted a NYT article the other day talking about people having panic and anxiety attacks just hearing his name on the news.  Again, TDS is real.  There is actual proof of it.

    I'm sure they're out there - obviously no way to know.  Hysterics on one side pointing out how the other side is worse is like a 400 lb guy pointing out how obese a 500 lb guy is.

    And there always are reminders of both. One side got so rattled by a 4chan (or somewhere like that) hoax that you're now a horrible racist sort if you dare to publicly make the thumb-and-forefinger "okay" sign. And with it being December, the other side is ready to get up in arms over their self-made "War on Christmas" that simply uttering "happy holidays" makes you...well, as bad as that dude obliviously making the "okay" sign.

    Moral of the story: Fake, manufactured outrage is pretty fucking funny, regardless of which side is generating it to give their sheep something to bleet about.

    I'm not sure there aren't, either.  But we have objective, verifiable CLINICAL proof of TDS.

    I don't doubt that.  You could equate TDS with Alex Jones and his ilk - literally deranged over imagined realities.  Both are crazy for sure.

    If it involves booze, let me know.

    Greta doesn't move the needle for me either way, but i do find it ironic that we slam kids for not being involved and being stupid and then when they get involved we say you are stupid just go be a kid.
