  1. Trump’s latest Fox News rant was one of his most dangerous. Republicans can’t ignore it. Opinion by Editorial Board November 30, 2020 PRESIDENT TRUMP’S Sunday Fox News rant ranks as one of the most dangerous of his presidency, and that is saying something. Mr. Trump issued claim after incoherent claim about vote rigging — machines switched thousands of votes, dead people voted, mail-in ballots were “phony,” poll watchers “weren’t allowed.” The United States just conducted probably the most secure, transparent presidential
  2. Well we shall see. As the article stated, the proposed time frame for the change in question is 2030, or about 10 years, not 150 years. (Guess you overlooked that in your response, huh?) Regardless, the present-day Republican party will be a recent, shameful memory.
  3. Car, country - it doesn't matter to this narcissistic sociopath's monster ego. Trump lays the groundwork for a massive government purge on his way out the door Opinion by Catherine Rampell Columnist November 30, 2020 Again and again, outgoing Trump officials have demonstrated their intention to salt the earth. They’ve tried to jam through Senate confirmations of partisan cranks while planting regulatory time-bombs scheduled to detonate after Pre
  4. You got a better alternative to Republicans and Trump? I don't even understand how fracking is an example of what you were talking about. Quote: "You know, like all those Democrats that pander to everyone and act like they are for the people and throw out ideas and policies that look good on paper so they claim the high road when in reality means nothing." Sorry, I don't know what you are talking about here. ".....Nevertheless, the Democratic-controlled House, which impeached Trump in December, passed a relief package in May that would have pu
  5. Fracking? We have a looming crisis with starvation and evictions and you want to talk about fracking? And seriously, Trump and most - if not all - MAGAs don't even accept global warming as a problem. So I wouldn't even go there if I were you. We must make a transition away from our dependence on fossil fuels and Biden has a serious plan to start that effort. Republicans don't understand the problem because it's 'science'. The reason we didn't have another relief package is McConnell, pure and simple. And the other side - Republicans - are worse. FAR FAR WORSE. That's
  6. Got specific examples? I've got an example of "reality" for you: Democrats are pushing for an immediate pandemic economic relief package. Meanwhile Munchen is trying to "clawback" $429 billion in "CARES" funds before Biden takes office. (Undoubtedly he will cite the deficit, which is only an issue when Democrats are in power.) If he remains speaker, McConnell will block any major relief bill proposed, no matter how needed. He would just as soon see a huge number of Americans suffer on the assumption it might help Republicans in the mid-term.
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/10/election-trust-polling-study-republicans I disagree. It isn't logical to assume that many voters would believe the election was rigged without Trump's incessant repetition of the lie. (That's exactly why you hear the word "cult" associating with the MAGA movement.) Hell, Trump fired the CISA director simply because he stood up and told the truth: https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/politics/highlights-from-chris-krebss-60-minutes-interview/2020/11/30/46d8abe5-744e-4edf-ab30-64e0a9d6ff4d_video.html Things won't change in thi
  8. No, it starts at the top. It's not solely Trump, but Trump has played to the worst instincts and "values" of the country from the very beginning. Getting rid of him as our "leader" is the essential first step. And I don't know exactly what you mean by "leeches" but Republicans are now 'all in' for the cynical acquisition and abuse of power. Just wait, if they retain the Senate and you will see exactly what I mean.
  9. And considering there was nothing "lucid or logical" in your (first) post, I wouldn't be highlighting that as something the other side has a problem with.
  10. I don't have a problem making generalizations when they are valid and based on objective evidence. Almost half the electorate voted for Trump and over 70% of them think Biden won only because it was a "rigged" election. Both of those facts speak for themselves. In fact, here's a good generalization of Biden voters - based on data - which I endorse: "Biden voters generally know we are in the middle of a deadly pandemic and anxiously await a vaccine. However, they understand social distancing and mask-wearing are by far the best ways to keep themselves and their famili
  11. Just to clarify, are you suggesting - in this case - that a 14 year-old girl should be held accountable for encouraging or allowing sexual abuse?
  12. That's just BS. Dub is a highly respected poster on this forum and for good reason.
  13. Mitch McConnell’s ability to cripple Biden’s presidency depends on one thing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
