    This is what little whiners say every time their opinion gets challenged. Of course you can have your opinion, just suck it up if you can't defend it well enough to not get taken to task.

    Goddamn this is good. These dudes have been lowkey ripping for a while and they seem to be really hitting their stride right now. Lots of great hooks coming from them.

    And then of course, reality set in, and Obamacare remains to this day favorable by the majority of the country with fewer and fewer people in favor of repealing it with each month that goes by. It's almost like once the aura of "Socialism Boogieman" wore off and people actually realized how beneficial it could be, they came around on it. Now imagine if Congress actually got around to trying to work out the kinks instead of Trump throwing a fit and trying (and failing) to get it repealed for two years.
    No one in this country is ever going to accept full-on socialism which is why no politician is actually pushing for it. You're getting scared over a buzzword which is exactly what Russia and the corrupt on the right want you to do. There are socialist ideas with some merits that have proven track records in other countries, it absolutely does not fail everywhere it's installed. Canada has one of the most popular healthcare systems in the world. The Netherlands have literacy rates that absolutely stomp ours. Those healthcare and education systems are largely the product of socialist ideas and have helped make those places among the world's highest ranked places to live, often placing higher than the United States. You can be terrified of socialism all you want but rest assured capitalism is doing a ton of damage to this country and its people and it's about time we started neutralizing some of that shit.

    How many times do people have to make this argument before they realize how stupid it is

    Also all the drugs, especially fentanyl that are coming through our unprotected Southern border.  They caught a huge amount of drugs a couple of weeks ago and the amount of fentanyl that was found was enough to kill a small city.

    Dude for once on this board CAN YOU NOT BE SUCH A GOD DAMN FUCKING ASSHOLE?!?!!

    I sure hope you're single and work from home because I cannot imagine anyone putting up with you for very long if this is how you are outside of the internet.

    Trump was offered a bill of what is estimated to be 20 billion for the wall early last year but turned it down. The wall is purely a political stance for him. He's used it to play the victim for two years and you and his dumbfuck base have bought it hook, line, and sinker.
    Democrats want border protection but they don't want to give in to this child who doesn't even give a shit about anything in this country. They have offered money time and again for border security, and Trump had control of the government for two years if he really wanted it that badly. He didn't, because for him it's easier to swindle his base by painting the Democrats as bad guys trying to stop his one great campaign promise from coming to fruition.
    It's not even a significant issue. Illegal border crossings have been decreasing for years and most harmful illegal substances and wannabe terrorists have come from overseas, not Mexico. Border security is important but it's not a 20-billion-dollar-wall important.

    Say this to yourself the next time you cite The Washington Times as "truth" when it's a paper with an extensive history of omitting facts and tilting stories in favor of the right.  If they're not the best to use, maybe you should find a citation from a more credible source? No?
    Did you read what I posted at all or did you just sort of gloss over it and decide to double down on a different point?

    They delivered that message for me. I guess if ratio of unique words if how you view lyricism, I can't stop you, but art is rarely something you can quantify with statistics. That's on you, I'll let you have it though cause the whole art is subjective thing, though it sounds to me like you just legit didn't actually put any care or concern into the lyrics and decided to come up with a quick way to explain why objectively the lyrics were bad.
    Ten tracks before you hear an instrument other than drums, though? Listen again, man. I know you've listened to 'Jumpsuit' a lot since you've been taking it to task so much, how do you not hear that absolutely THUNDEROUS bass line? That's track one homie, and it's one of the most obvious uses of other instruments on the entire album. 'Chlorine' has a lot of obvious bass as well, and the also pretty obvious piano line going on in the chorus. Track four. There's OBVIOUSLY piano all over 'Neon Gravestones' and it's at this near halfway point of the album I'd be curious where this assertion even came from, cause that's track five. 'The Hype' gets back to the heavy bass lines, the ukulele kicks in in the back half of the song, oh and there's fucking STRINGS at the end. That song alone has a full handful of non-synth instruments in it. That's track six.  Bass is back in 'Nico and the Niners' as well as the ukulele and even though it's not an instrument I'm just gonna take a shot at the 'basic music' argument and point you to the fact that this song at one point uses its vocals and drums backing track and REVERSES it for the back half of the song for Tyler to rap over. Most of the popular bands around here haven't done anything that weird and creative in their entire careers.
    I did half the album off the top of my head and I could do the rest but I don't wanna make that statement look TOO stupid. Also where did you get those numbers cause I know you didn't just sit around and do that math yourself.

    If you wanna have a real talk we can have a real talk.
    You say the lyrics are 'thoughtless.' Can you actually describe what any of the songs on the album are about? Are you even aware it's at least partially a concept album? Did you know 'Neon Gravestones' is about how pop culture glorifies suicide and Tyler's own struggles with the urges to take his own life? Would you say those lyrics are "thoughtless" and without "soul" as you've said in this thread?

    Well considering your taste is historically rubbish, I'll take that as confirmation.
    Blurryface is fine but really can't hold a candle to this one, in my opinion of course. Given that it's their most shallow and accessible album it would make sense that you think it's their best though.

    MSNBC isn't too far liberal. It's just that the truth is considered liberal these days.
