Well it does suck when we lefties have to talk to righties and have to fucking explain everything because they are so fucking dense they can't understand when we tried using only small words...

...or the righties are so simple minded, they can only think in bumper sticker length slogans...

...or even when we use the smallest of words, the dumbasses still don't fucking understand what we are talking about...


Good try from a simpleton trying to explain why they are so simple.

At least sometimes the dumb ones are actually funny.

This needs some investigation. I know that as a rightie, the simple message seems like a straight up "gotcha" and you don't like to read into things but I am guessing there is something in there that doesn't pass the smell test. This is an amendment from Cruz to a bill that passed 94 to 1. So I don't think this is quite the "gotcha" you think it is. I will read up on the amendment and maybe start a new thread.

EDIT - Cruz's poorly thought out amendment:
"To prohibit Federal funding for any institution of higher education that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions."

I can not for the life of me find what the actual proposal is because I lack the investigative prowess required to navigate the amendments pages. I am guessing some senators didn't like the lack of details in his amendment. The original bill was like 500x more descriptive and this is literally one sentence?

EDIT 2:
We see the evidence of the simpletons that conservatives and their elected leaders really are stored in the national archives for all to see.

You simply can't assume a consertive is engaging honestly. Even if you think they are, most of the time their sources are just garbage.

Ironically, this poster posted a picture about how liberals have to use big words to explain things. Too bad we can't just chant everything and then celebrate.

The full text of the proposed amendment was:
SEC. 6. PROHIBITION OF FEDERAL FUNDS FOR INSTITUTIONS OF
HIGHER EDUCATION THAT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST
ASIAN AMERICANS.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no institution
of higher education (as defined in section 102 of the Higher
Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002)) may receive any
Federal funding if the institution has a policy in place or
engages in a practice that discriminates against Asian
Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.
As for the issues with it, I'll simply quote Senator Hirono:
Mr. President, I rise in strong opposition to this amendment. Discrimination against Asian-American students or any students on the basis of race is already prohibited by Federal law. This amendment is a transparent and cynical attack on longstanding admission policies that serve to increase diversity and provide opportunity to students of color in our institutions of higher learning. This amendment also threatens colleges and universities with the loss of all Federal funding for pursuing or using policies that our courts have upheld repeatedly. I urge everyone to reject this amendment.
It was a bad-faith amendment. Which I know, is shocking to see coming from Senator Cruz!

Interesting that you seem to feel this is some sort of segregation policy. 15 seconds of googling yields that they were focused listening groups based on demographics of race.
