  1. Isn't is kind of ironic you're supposedly championing some "middle ground" while saying the only two moderates in the entire democratic caucus need to go into hiding because they won't do whatever their hyperpartisan cohorts desire? Also, what makes you believe either party is capable of championing any sort of "middle ground?" They are clearly both controlled by partisan zealots who don't represent reason or a cohesive government.

  3. think about the reverse though. biden could end the world and you and that other guy would use your last post on "lol cults" and rt would spend his last breaths making a 12 paragraph post explaining how this was all trumps fault actually.

  4. No I didnt support him during the primaries but also didnt support him because he was a republican. I didnt start supporting him until he turned the country around to the best it had been in my lifetime. He did it all while being continuously lied about and the whole time not buying into the fringe woke BS that less than 10% of this country thinks is rational.

  5. Yea unfortunately people do still care. I normally dont care if they care, but I was approached in Starbucks just yesterday by a lady (younger than me, Im FOH FIVE BABY) to put my mask on while I was playing poker. I was literally in the corner of the shop. I told her how can I drink my coffee, and she showed me how to pull it down, sip my coffee, and put it back over my mouth and nose. It was hilarious. I laughed, said OK, and took it off when she left. I think they call her types "Karen".

  7. How the fuck is anybody supposed to have a reasonable discussion in here when pretty much every single one of you is embarrassingly wrong about nearly everything you believe?

  8. I think we would disagree on the policy and laws that are the cause of negative societal factors. (Think 1960s and welfare policy that essentially destroyed black families for example). I believe that many of our institutions are stacked against poor people rather that people of color. I also agree that as a nation we are not perfect on ensuring equal opportunity, but we would likely disagree as to why that is. I realize you are talking about a different issue. My comments and you criticisms are essentially two independent ideas. What and individual does and how he lives his life is not dependent on societal factors. It is dependent on his mind set every day when he wakes up and decides how he is going to live his life that day, given his present circumstances. I do not believe that racism, sexism etc. is nearly as pervasive or has as large an effect on people as you do, but that is a rabbit hole for a different day. I believe that different races have different cultures based on their history. I also believe that our country is one of very few that has the ability and in fact has addressed many of the cultural and institutional issues that cause unequal opportunity to exist. For example women and people of color have far more opportunity than they did 100 years ago. This is a good thing. I agree we need more work on that. I do not agree that destroying capitalism and becoming a woke Marxist and fascist society will help in addressing those issues. Our governing and founding documents allow us to change and we have and hopefully we will continue to change for the better.

  9. Cops almost exclusively kill criminals. The killing of an innocent is a tiny tiny percentage. The precautions you're talking about are being dictated to ALL children... not just the tiny percentage that are vulnerable. Even when there's no science to back up the edicts. You're not welcome because you won't understand the difference. You simply bow to your chosen authority like a good little nazi. Turned in any of your friends or neighbors yet?

  13. Instead of having an issue with the Government turning Border Patrol Agents into villains, and paying people to NOT work even though we have resources and funds allocated to do so, you turn a blind eye to the security issues and the actions of the Mexican Cartels? The real question is why DON'T YOU care about those things? There's nothing wrong with legal immigration. Let everyone who wants to come to the United States come...legally. Security is basic, fundamental, and necessary for our country. The best possible source for what is happening just gave an exclusive interview, and the response is "so what". That's shameful. I hope the Texas National Guard is deployed to the border, and they get a grip on all of the bullshit going on down there.

  19. Really? Really? Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas conceded Monday that the surge of the COVID-19 delta variant at the border took him by surprise. Speaking virtually at the 18th Annual Immigration Law and Policy Conference at Georgetown University, Mayorkas said, "What I didn't expect was the tragic rise of the delta variant. And we took a step back by reason of that. I did not expect to be in late September where we are." "We are confronted with a population of people that, as a general matter, that have a rate of illness of approximately 20%," he continued. "When one is speaking of 7,000 or 7,500 people encountered at the border every day, if one takes a look at that the system, it is not built for that in a COVID environment where isolation is required."

  20. deleted it. Not worth getting into it with an anonymous guy who pretends to be a doctor. until the people in power start to mention natural immunity you would have to be a fool to listen to anything they say. Which this thread illustrates perfectly.

  21. The 2020 scavenger hunt was complete horse shit. Massive mail vote fraud. The first audit showed exactly that. Those of us with functioning brains already knew exactly what the audit would find. Just like we haven’t fallen for any of the laughably obvious hoaxes over the last 5 years. Some people are stupid and some aren’t. That’s life.

  22. It's amazing to me AU projects onto you the things he is actually doing. Biden fell asleep during a world leader discussion and his handlers shut down the media. You cannot dismiss criticism of the event by claiming tribal nonsense. Saying people would find fault with him if he saved the world is hyperbolic tribal nonsense.

  23. As someone who has disagreements with both sides and reads this forum regularly, I can legitimately say I have no idea what’s being argued 95% of the time. tbum posts a lot of data and charts, but I’m usually unsure of the context. This is not a criticism, it might be that I missed a lot of the prior posts. RT2 just posts words paraphrased from different msnbc and cnn segments. And he doesn’t respond to anyone that provides data to dispute his post or provide links when asked. Just recently RT2 said “in government speak you have white and non-white for the purposes of covid”, I asked for a link.. crickets. au is just here riding the high of people looking stupid for “stop the steal”. This emotional response by the right to being outvoted was a gift to the left after the left being emotional and wrong over and over again the previous 4 years. Besides that au is relatively reasonable and if covid wasn’t politicized, I think he would be closer to the middle. pluv hardest working OT data analyst. I don’t think anyone can say if he’s been right or wrong because it’s impossible to ignore him constantly saying “should of”. Once you see that, the rest of his post disappears. trues most misunderstood poster in OT. He’s too sensitive and allows emotion and defensive posts to disrupt his great posts that focus on the many hypocrisies in politics and media. I definitely align the most with trues in general. I started to write more, but got lazy.

  24. BLM is protesting outside a NYC restaurant who refused service to 3 black women for not having vaccination cards and the women assaulted them calling them racist. Tough decision for some itt.. Who to back? BLM or the vaccination passport? Some of us told you it was racist to require them...

  26. He's lied over and over during this entire episode. He knows the efficacy of surgical/cloth masks. He knows the airborne aerosol dynamics. He knows the effectiveness of natural immunity. He knows the actual risks to children. He knows the funding went to gain of function. He has no issue with lying to promote political policies... the real science be damned. That he still works in govt is absurd.

  30. When I saw Buttigeg and Klobachar (sps?) withdraw before Biden was selected and they were duly rewarded, I cried foul. Lefts on here laughed at it being a conspiracy theory. When Biden proclaimed a woman would be VP, I cried foul and the leftists asked "what's wrong with a woman being VP"?. I dont care if Biden is pres or if a woman is VP. I am bothered by a wall street cabal having undue influence over our government, so they can institute bullshit policies like this. It will be a consolidation of power at the top and further fuck the average American. The democratic party was supposed to help people, not pretend to cater to the vocal minority while continuing to screw over the majority of Americans.

  31. While I pretty much always comply with the government mandates, business and personal requirements because it just makes my life easier, I do still notice the lack of consistency and common sense relating to all of the many and varied requirements. Some examples are: concert in Denver - vaccine or negative test required, but not masks and no social distancing.18000 people in attendance not one mask and no distancing. college hockey game - vaccine or negative test required, and masks required, except while eating or drinking and no social distancing.While mask compliance was very high in the beginning and there was no distancing, as the game progressed there was much less compliance and zero enforcement. Also unrelated, but of interest at this game were the bathroom signs at the new arena. There was also a multi stall bathroom for anyone to use. There was nothing different about how people used them, probably because there aren’t many gender confused people at hockey games or most any other public event for that matter. Private businesses - many and varied rules from requiring masks to vaccinations required to no requirements. Some require social distancing but it is never really enforced. Baseball league - no requirements Airports and airplanes and Uber - masks required, but no social distancing. other people’s homes - everything and nothing required My conclusion is that while some of these requirements seem to be reasonable others are essentially virtue signaling or people just being scared of the virus or lawsuits or a need for control or maybe something else. Regardless, of the reasons. It’s a shit show that is based on perception more than science. Always check the requirements and always carry a mask, if you want to complete your mission. Rightly or wrongly, I simply choose to go along to get along on this because I realize the response to covid has been purely political from the beginning, just another tool to divide people and give them another reason to be mad at each other. I’ve also noticed that an immediate way to tell where someone you meet stands on the whole thing is whether they want to shake you hand. It’s now a signal to tell others what your belief is. I’m good with eliminating handshaking all together, regardless of viruses or not. I also find it interesting that problems with the ecomomy, namely supply chain and labor issues are blamed on “covid”, when there is little doubt the reason is primarily governmental response to covid, not the virus itself. More politics I guess. Anyway, I’ve had the virus, I’m vaccinated and I wear a mask when asked, so that probably impacts my view on this stuff.

  32. Covid is never going away because the vaccines don’t stop transmission and they lose their efficacy almost entirely in seven months. You will eventually get Covid, or you will die of something else first. The only thing beyond stupid is that you haven’t figured that out yet.

  33. The only two types of people that oppose electoral college are Democrat politicians who want to abolish it for their own power gains and their dumbest followers. Noone in the middle, left or right want to abolish a check and balance system. It's a shame how many states freely gave up their voting rights this last cycle, adding to the super majority. Just because Trump and echo chambers broke their constituent brains. Does anyone not understand that when the DNC gets to pick their candidates under a corrupt system we end up with a potato for president? Biden and Harris were selected, not elected. What a fuckin joke Ozzie and Reet are.
