Not included: A b****.


#3

So, basically a list of left wing talking points. Cool.


#4

I've just decided to never click on anything Rob posts ever again.


#5

Was disappointed that it boiled down to a long joke, essentially.

But #5 is definitely true. Unfortunately, #6 should be:

A profound disagreement on what is the proper perspective of what is and is not important.

Left wing talking points?!?! I guess that's a sufficient rebuttal on the Internet. Actually, I've noticed it's sufficient rebuttal in American politics. Call someone a liberal - or better yet a Limousine Liberal or a Tax-and-Spend Liberal - and boom, nothing they say or think matters anymore.

But back to left wing. Not seeing it. Please explain.


#7

I am disappointed that Alzheimer's is only in the list once.


#8

Liberal problems are actual, real problems instead of fake, "it all blah people's fault" problems.


#9

How was this list made? What criteria was used to make it on the list? How was positioning determined?


#10

So you are just reposting Gawkers lazy clickbait now?


#11

I suspect that @ShabadO was refererring to points like:

  • The misguided war on drugs
  • Too many guns
  • Unwise deregulation of financial markets

Just to list a few of the points which a Republican would either not think are issues, or best case, would think were given inappropriate numbers in the list of priorities. Though I agree with you that the vast majority of list entries don't lean towards a specific political view.


#12

Pedant moment -- the list itself comes from HamNo; Max just did the "intro." (Easy to understand the misattribution tho, since the list contains no reference to Williamsburg : - )


#13

100: Taking stuff too seriously.

#15

The too many guns one I can definitely see. Especially at number 10. I would have gone with "irrational gun culture", and put it somewhere in the high 50's.
