  1. ONLY in countries with rigged elections does the person with the most votes loses. If someone can name me any other country where that doesn't happen I'm all ears.
  2. It won't get overhauled because the Republicans won't allow it. Its the ONLY way they can win a national election. The fact is the majority of the country are Democrats. That's a fact. No Republican has gotten more than the Democrat in his first election since Bush in 1988.
  3. I'd be open to consider Ohio Republican Kucinich (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Kucinich) over BIden for example. Consider. Romney might even be better. Might. I'd have to hear him out. Maybe even Liz Cheney https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liz_Cheney I look for integrity. Not only that but its very important to me. Of course effective ideas.
  4. Biden is bad. Now, who/what is a better alternative?
  5. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/oct/03/donald-trump-base-stays-loyal-president-fights-covid-19 https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/11/16/south-dakota-nurse-coronavirus-deniers/
  6. I'm totally against more troops in combat zones and its a legit criticism of Biden. Still, after 4 years of Trump, the alternative to Biden is just too insane. As for Dems turning on him, LOL, the Democratic party has ALWAYS been divided. The GOP is much more cohesive. That's not news. Not even gonna bother listening to anyone with a title of America selling the grid to China and killing diabetes patients. Its not worth the comment.
  7. Maybe I'm bored or a masochist. But I have a few questions for the Trump supporters. I promise I will not ridicule or counter the answers. I am just curious as to questions I have at this moment in time with all that has happened so far. 1. Do you still support Trump overall? A simple 'yes' or 'no'. 2. What is your opinion on the Capital building 'event'. 3. What percentage of blame should Trump accept for the Capital building 'event' in terms of inciting them? Any range from 0% to 100% will suffice. 4. Do you believe in the QAnon movement?
  8. America is a center left country. It's going to go farther left when Gen Z and Gen Y are older. That's how it is. Republican masses have showed the rest of us they have ZERO integrity the last 4 years. NONE. I am an independent and on a case by case basis would support a Republican. Not sure if I can find any. Maybe 2 or 3 these at the most. Marjorie Tayler Greene is a QAnon believer. That alone makes her batshit crazy. And the majority in her district as fucked up in the head as her. Interesting. Republicans said Dems filing impeachment the first time is a waste since it was never going to get a conviction. But Greene doing it is good? Notice we never get an explanation for this hypocrisy fellas? Notice it just gets ignored and move on to the next gaslight or deflection?
  9. "You lost. Get over it." -- Republicans to Hillary Clinton supporters in 2016
  10. What a complete nutcase. https://www.yahoo.com/news/republican-marjorie-taylor-greene-files-213258442.html
  11. Seems we're going to go from 4 years of posts of Heil Trump, bow to him' to Heil Biden, he is acting like he's Hitler'
  12. All is not well in the House of Trump https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-business-revenues-plunged-during-221748873.html
  13. Yes. Ever since Nixon as accused of tax evasion, every presidential aspirant since has released their taxes. Usually the most recent 5 years on average. Its not a legal requirement just a tradition to show transparency. Trump knew that and frankly didn't expect to be the nominee until he was. Then he said "i'm being audited'. Which would disqualify any other nominee. It also raises red flags, as well as a few questions. 1. Why run for office if you are being audited? 2. Why are people voting for a person who is being audited and has a history of bankruptcies and expect EVERY other candidate to show theirs. Hillary was pilloried for what was in her taxes. Had she opted out, she would be deemed not a viable candidate by the SAME people who let Trump run without showing his. 3. Trump could still have shown the taxes he submitted and say they may change after the audit. 4. The very fact he fought hard as hell from people suing him is a red flag.
  14. Nixon established the EPA (Environment Protection Agency) in 1970 as well as signed law for the Endangered Species Act. Almost a hundred years before, Republican Teddy Roosevelt established the national park system. Not a peep out of Republicans about this. We know why.
  15. Anyway, back to Covid19 news.... https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/rare-trait-could-keep-safe-130533380.html
  16. Once again, context is everything. First, its a bit rich that conservatives are against anyone making money. ALL recent presidents have made more money after leaving office. Second, the amounts were NOT made while in office. The figures are for the years AFTER the president left office. Third, what is corrupt about it? Give us specifics. Ex presidents, senators, etc, have always made money from speeches to any group willing to pay them for it. How is that corrupt? If the Texas Cattlemans annual convention wants to pay Bush 250k to be its keynote speaker, exactly how is that corrupt? If a company asks Obama to give its opening speech, how corrupt is that? if a publisher pays him and Michelle millions for a book deal on their life, how is that corrupt? Trump will make tons of money. This tweet is willfully lacking in context. I repeat NONE of these ex presidents made that money while in office. It implies that. Show me where Obama was paid over a hundred million dollars for anything while in office. He can't. There are laws against it. The emollient clause that TRUMP VIOLATED multiple times.
  17. For me, the conversation ends when basic science, reality is debated. At that point, there is no chance of compromise, understanding. You don't engage, don't bother, work ONLY with those who at least acknowledge reality. https://www.yahoo.com/news/ex-gop-pollster-frank-luntz-172755768.html
  18. The inference "Hey, a boy being able to be on the girls basketball team is bad, see Trump was the better choice" hmm....no.
  19. ...still Biden is infinitely better than Trump. Biden has a very, very low bar compare to what we endured.
  20. For the record I am totally against any person born male or female and a school legally obligated to have him or her be in the opposite sports team.
  21. He's only been in office 2 days. Wasn't the narrative for Trump was that Dems tried to end him from the start? What happened to give the person a chance?
  22. Proud Boos are turning on tRump. https://news.yahoo.com/total-failure-proud-boys-now-130740495.html
  23. Khunsanuk, The ONLY reason conservatives in the government in America are against nenewable energy is because big oil, coal companies, etc pay them to be against it. The ONLY reason why the Republican masses are against it is because liberals are for it. I guarantee 100 percent had Trump been for it, they would be for it. Ideology doesn't mean much, its an 'us against them' mindset. The left could be for the sun coming up each day in a public statement and the right would be against it. Trump went to the left of Hillary Clinton on a few things during the run up to the 2016 election and not a word of outcry from the Republicans. Both parties are for a massive overhaul of our infrastructure but when Obama wanted to spend on it, they all of a sudden were against it in the Congress. It's all bullshit. It's childish. Had Obama pardoned rapper Lil Wayne, it would be a huge issue. Trump does iy and 'see, he doesn't hate Blacks'. But if Obama had done it "See, he's only helping fellow Blacks' Bullshit. Plenty of Republican voters are hunters, campers, spend a lot in the outdoors in Michigan, the midwest, the south, the mountain states, etc. and know the environment is precious but will vote for people who would ruin their own areas they fish, camp and hunt with a pipeline or dig an oil well in the pristine forests they go hunting and camping in. They don't give a shit about the oil and fossil fuels, they give a shit about being against anything that seems near and dear to the left. That's it. Nothing else. I presume some on the left are the same about some things on the right as well. I try to be fair. Not a peep from the left when Obama used ICE to deport more illegal immigrants than any president prior....COMBINED. But it was a problem when Trump used them. Hypocritical bullshit. Obama created DACA for illegals who were law abiding and could prove it but if they had a parking ticket (I'm over exaggerating for effect) he sent them back to where ever.
  24. I'm not Biden's biggest fan but just about anyone is better than Trump including some Republicans like Romney. I also don't think the Dems will hold on to the Congress in 2 years. I'd be surprised if they keep the Senate and for me, its 50/50 if they keep the House of Representatives. If they were smart (and they aren't), the Dems would appoint as many judges as they can to the federal bench. Especially lifetime appointments. Same thing the Republicans did. And they should change the rules towards the end of 2022 back to 60 votes needed in the Senate to confirm judges. It used to be 60 and the Republicans held up everything, so the Dems stupidly changed it to a simple majority. Why do I say it was stupid? Because either party can get a majority. But only the Dems have the capability of getting 60 Senators. The Republicans simply don't have the numbers in the states to get to 60. Mid 50s yes, close to 60 maybe with some luck but not really. Their numbers are decreasing so raise the bar. If nothing gets done, its a price to pay than them being the majority. They have shown they govern as fascists. Don't give them the opportunity. And this is said by someone who supported Republicans from time to time in the past. NEVER again. They have shown themselves to be either spineless cowards, political opportunists with no line that won't be crossed or outright fascists. A very, very few stood up to the bullshit. The Dems suck but until we can find a better party, they are better than the alternative. It's like looking at the ballot in 1933 Germany and having to decide between Nazis and the communist party (among others). We should at least propose a few constitutional changes. 1. Give Congress the ability to overturn a pardon with a 3/4 vote in the House and 2/3 vote in the Senate. That bar is set high enough where you will need both parties to do it. Also, if the president tries to pardon anyone that really stinks to high heaven, the Congress who vote not to overturn will be on record. 2. Make it formal that the president can not pardon himself. 3. Get rid of the clause of the 13th amendment that says slavery ends except in incarceration. It was put in there in bad faith. Remove it. 4. Propose to have the day we vote a day off. Other countries do it. Its insane that a person has to work the same day and stand in line up to 3 or more hours for the one right that is the most precious. It's anti democratic. Make it national holiday. 5. Have the FBI, Attorney General full investigate these supremacists in the various law enforcement agencies and the joint chiefs come up with a plan to eradicate them from the military. The government has long known its an issue. They didn't care because the target of their hate wasn't them but with the Capital building domestic terrorists they now realize they are also targeted so now its a problem.
