I wanted to post in the Turquoise section, but couldn't come up with anything.

Here's classic ORANGE anti-Socialism

These guys are getting triggered at celebrities singing John Lennon's 'Socialist Anthem' (No, not the international)

In all do fairness, they are absolutely correct when they say Scandinavia is not Socialist.

But I can almost understand what ORANGE is upset about, imagine having that strive drive go getter attitude, living in such a collectivist system must be rather scary.

Arnold's an interesting one, as it seems old Arnold is moving more towards Green.

Arnold is the best thing that's ever happened to the Republican party.

And I voted for him.

Good on you, and agreed. The country would be in a much better place if the Republican Party made room for well meaning people like Arnold to challenge the orthodoxy of the party. And I think Governors are in a uniquely strong position to do just that, as they can't be disempowered to the same degree that a member or Congress that's part of a Voting Block can be for failing to tow the line.

Leo is a Republican confirmed

but serious question: Was there ever a time you were not a Progressive?

I was always very liberal due to my openmindedness. But I didn't have a progressive identity because I didn't even know that was a thing. But I always saw conservativism as moronic and dogmatic. My idea of a conservative was W Bush. And he was clearly an idiot.

This is gonna be one of those  videos that talks about the notion o NOFAP. I would  like to share my opinions towards it because I think not many people  talk about that from this perspective. 

A couple years ago I was into nofap, and I was able to endure one year with very little relapse, until one day I realized  that I was very worried about this notion and then I found that I  became neurotic about it. 

Today I'm  aware of the benefits  of semen retention  that he talks about. But I  don't  consider myself as a "follower " of the NOFAP group. And what ends up happening  paradoxically is that it enhances  more my sexuality.  Because if I wanna watch porn, I watch porn, if I wanna jerk off, I do jerk off. 

But today I became so conscious  of the toxicity  and fakeness  that porn can bring that I can even stand looking  at it. I realized  that there are more healthier  ways to keep yourself  aroused. Just watching a woman enjoying her own body might be sufficient. 

And if you think you can't  do that, so yeah..., try a 6 month nofap and see how it goes,  it can give all these benefits  that this guys is talking about!🙃😉👍

I don't like this phrase "facts don't care about your feelings." 

This phrase has been making the rounds since 2016 when Trump was rallying. I used to see this phrase in the title of several YouTube videos. 

It sucks. Because feelings have such a strong impact on the mind and the body that it will take a robot to not be impacted by emotions and feelings. We are human beings and human beings use emotions and feelers to navigate through life. 

And for those who peddle this philosophy, it's so hypocritical, if they were made to deal with harsher realities they would give emotional reactions as well. Who are you kidding then? Doesn't Trump have emotional meltdowns every now and then on Twitter? 

Granted logic is necessary. But so is the condition of the mind. It's ridiculous to completely negate a fundamental aspect of living. 

What matters is not just feelings but what matters more is how you execute them and it will show you your stage of development as a human, if you emotionally react childishly, the way Trump and much of the Right wing does that's the real issue. Meanwhile if you genuinely react being hurt by your circumstances, this is not you being irrationally emotional, but fully within your right to have a reaction.
