Apologies if it came off as complaining. I thought I structured the post as an inquiry with legitimate questions based on my observations since I became a member here. The questions weren't rhetorical and I appreciate all of the feedback that I've received. Seems there are several left leaning folks here who don't particularly care for the Young Turks, and some that do.

My leanings fall all over the spectrum. I'm a pro-choice gun-nut who abhors religion. I'm for school choice, less government, same-sex marriage, capitalism and freedom.

I don't think I can really be pigeonholed into the left or right columns.

If I've become known to you as a complainer about only the left, then I'm doing something wrong. Each situation is unique and should be approached with an open mind each time. I have lots of questions and appreciate many different points of view.
What spectrum.. everything you just listed is upon limited governence on a libertarian scale.

The big Turk predicted Trump's victory in July 2016. Deer in the headlight is not an accurate description.

3 foot dick in the ass look maybe?
Would that be more accurate?

I seriously doubt it, Trump has little tiny prepubescent boy hands.

If you want to put me on that particular bus, that's cool...but you can't make me sit in the back!!! I disagree with several libertarian stances such as social security, foreign policy, border control, the death penalty, tax methods, etc.

I tried to keep from being labeled, but it's everywhere!!! I was simply trying to tell GenesisNemesis that I don't follow party lines and attack when I'm supposed to based on what someone else says. I'm a lover, not a fighter!!!

It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.

He outsources.

Ana's legs.

They were cool for a second but time marches on. They have seem to have found the same vein of reflection... as mentioned earlier.

Ana's legs, I'll reiterate.

No. Just No.

RE: Young Turks...what is the appeal?
In the beginning they were good and brought up stories that mainstream media seemed to ignore.

But then somewhere along the line, they lost their reason, rationality and journalistic integrity.

I'd love a specific example. Everyone's down on them but in my short time viewing them I haven't come across anything that smacks of lost reason, rationality or journalistic integrity?
