    I think the best strategy is to just turn it around, like you just did there. A racist complains about being called a Nazi?! Snowflake. A guy feels the need to fight against "all those feminists who want to take over"?! Snowflake. Trump?! Serious snowflake.

    It cracks me up how some people think of him as some sort of supreme macho dude, he can't handle the slightest criticism.

    The biggest use of 'snowflake' I used to see was referring to children - mainly as an insult to the parents. A precious little snowflake was the kid of an overbearing helicopter parent who flipped out when their child was disciplined for anything or didn't win the trophy despite not bothering to even try.

    OAS head urges bloc suspend Venezuela over elections

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/...tions-46186249

    "The head of the Organization of American States wants regional governments to suspend Venezuela from the Washington-based group unless general elections are held soon to break a political impasse that he said Tuesday is destroying the country's democracy."

    "OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro made the request in a 75-page report on Venezuela's political crisis, in which he accused President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government of systematically violating human rights and standards of democracy enshrined in the Inter-American Democratic Charter, to which Venezuela is a signatory."

    "Maduro's government, which has long accused Almagro of doing the bidding of the U.S. government, said the OAS leader was overstepping his authority in an effort to pave the way for an "international intervention" in Venezuela. Almargo "is guided only by the hatred he professes toward Venezuela and his complicity with the coup-mongering, extremist and anti-democratic Venezuelan opposition," the foreign ministry said in a statement."

    "Almagro asked the OAS's 34 member states to intervene in Venezuela's crisis almost a year ago after Maduro's government disavowed a landslide loss to the opposition in legislative election and then suspended a constitutionally allowed recall campaign seeking to force him from office before the 2018 election."

    "But regional governments, many of them ideologically aligned with Maduro's leftist administration or recipients of subsidized Venezuelan oil shipments, voted against intervention and instead threw their weight behind an attempt at dialogue between his government and the opposition."

    "Those talks, which were sponsored by the Vatican and enjoyed the support of the Obama administration, broke down after little progress on key opposition demands, including freedom for dozens of jailed activists and a commitment to hold gubernatorial elections that were supposed to have taken place last year."


    Venezuela was going to be kicked out from the OES last year but it was 3 votes short, some caribbean island who still supported him vote against, now Haiti has a conservative president and the guy in front of the polls in Ecuador is anti Maduro, Venezuela has a month to allow the legislative referendum to happen or else they will be kick out, let me remind the referendum is for removing Maduro from his power.

    Two months out of office, Barack Obama is having a post-presidency like no other

    So far, Obama is trying to approach his post-presidency in the same way as his cocktail-hosting duties — keeping things low-key, despite clamoring from Democrats for him to do more. “He is enjoying a lower profile where he can relax, reflect and enjoy his family and friends,” said his former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

    But the unprecedented nature of this particular post-presidency means his respite could be brief. Even while taking downtime at a luxurious resort in the South Pacific last week, Obama put out a statement urging Republicans not to unilaterally dismantle his signature health-care law.

    Not only are the Obamas still young and unusually popular for a post-White House couple, but their decision to stay in Washington while their younger daughter finishes high school has also combined with the compulsion of the new Trump administration to keep pulling them back into the spotlight.

    I take some small comfort in the knowledge that even if Trump wins a second term, the GOP will never loosen the rules on a third term because they know we'll run Obama and win.

    Not that it matters, since there's no term limit on Bannon...but it's something.

    Yup.

    Rape and incest are part of God's grand design.

    Ain't it grand?

    If you're female, minority, gay, etc, it doesn't matter.
    You're absolutely dirt to these monsters.
    Meanwhile, I'm sure there's been instances where Republicans with mistresses on the side have had those women get abortions in secret rather than wind up with baby mamas, making them supreme hypocrites. Perhaps this assclown is one of those two faced shitheads.

    The fact that the GOP has learned nothing since Todd "legitimate rape" Akin says it all. Every Democrat should ask every Republican this question about rape.
