wow thats rich

thing is, only things you align with is worth discussing for you, otherwise its insults and memes and gotchas. sound familiar doesnt it.

i dont mind rational discussions, its fun. like i used to think some of you guys had some pretty interesting stuff to say, but the longer i read and the closer i looked at a lot of it, it becomes off key, requested explanations is refused or ignored(or maybe theyre seen as gotchas??). or met with memes or gotchas or insults.
In the last 24 hours I've posted stories and links to:

Ed Henry being fired from Fox
Brian Beutler's brilliant piece on the filibuster in Crooked
Greg Doucette's extraordinary police violence twitter thread
A brilliant twitter thread about Gettysburg and 'ol Stonewall's statue coming down
An attack ad on Donnie - in Russian
The state of ICU beds in TX and scorecards for treatment in AZ
Donnie's fundraising
Montana's senate race
Anthony Fauchi on the BBC...

... and a bunch on Bonnie and Clyde.

You?

13 hours? what? LOL! you think people follow you around as you post? hahahaha. and who put a curfew on forum use? heavy dayz guy.

speaking of guy, when i see your name, i just think its the nazi guy. follow the concept



i was teasing.

people being nailed to the wall by lunatics because of they did or say many years ago which is inappropriate today, but this biden guy seems gets the slide..
isnt that remark more along the lines of the current guy is trying to lesson the independence on china, and exaggerating it
"there are two types of people. those who can extrapolate from incomplete data"

also, why do you only you guys get to bring things up, where do you get these rules from? lol
they expect the cops to speak nicely

I beg your pardon? He's pinned to the floor, the only thing moving are his feet. And he's telling them he can't breathe, which .... sounds familiar. What on earth possesses you to claim that he's resisting arrest?
In this instance I think that he was shouting for the cameras. The only unnecessary thing I see there is them holding his face down in the concrete. I don't see any pressure on his back or neck. Even if you're pinned you can still be attempt to fight your captor. You can't tell from a distance the only two people who would really know is the policeman feeling the resistance to his pressure and the captor.
The second guy is twisting yeah. It's a thing you do when you can't breathe.
The second guy is twisting and struggling with them when they're carrying him to the car. Which makes me think that he was also resisting arrest ealier.

You do not expect a police car to suddenly plow you over. It's not a reasonable thing to assume. You assume that the police are trying to keep the peace and they will intervene to stop vandalism or violence, but there was absolutely no rationale for the car to drive through the people. You can clearly see the malicious intent in the video.

Hey look here's another one:

You have no idea where those police are headed, protests are not the only things happening in the city. These protestors could be the cause of other people losing their lives because they blocked the police, preventing them from doing their jobs. Imagine you or your loved ones come to harm because the police arrived late due protestors slowing them down.

Remember when I said:
Post something worth discussing so we can have at it.
Post whatever spikes your interest.

Let's see how that goes.

So you just like to accuse Greg of being a troll and refusing to engage in substantive debates while admitting that you're the one who's actually trolling? That about right? Honestly it's about what I've come to expect but it's refreshing to hear you say it out loud.

I don't know, your post was pretty clear.

You, like Melania, really don't care. You're not trying to be reasonable because you've realized you aren't winning any debates that way and you justify it to yourself by insisting that it's actually the liberals who don't debate in good faith, but actually the facts just aren't on your side and you don't care about that either. It's not about being right according to a commonly observed reality, it's about power and owning the people you don't like.

LOL the Flip-Flop Orange Dotard.

Coronavirus: In change of tone, Trump says he's 'all for masks'

After long opposing wearing a face mask, US president says he has no problem with it but federal mandate not needed.






Trump's anti-mask crusade is coming back to bite him

By going barefaced when everyone around him masked up, the President created a false impression that the worst was behind us

Court sides with publisher of tell-all book by Trump's niece



Bad news for President Trump and his younger brother, Robert Trump, who has been trying to block an unflattering tell all book by the President's niece, Mary Trump, that Simon & Schuster is set to publish in July.

On Wednesday evening, a New York appellate court lifted the temporary restraining order against Simon & Schuster, a decision that allows the publisher to move forward with printing copies of the book and shipping them to retailers. The court left the temporary restraining order in place for Mary Trump until a hearing on July 10.

Make no mistake: This is a blow to Robert Trump's attempt to block the book. Simon & Schuster had already said that it had printed 75,000 copies of the book and shipped copies to booksellers. By July 10's hearing, the publisher will be further along in its preparation for publishing the book on its scheduled release date of July 28. In other words, the horse will be that much closer to being out of the barn.

did i get your right in the feels? :p

no idea, that test with the graph result that was posted here by bbsa i think, scored me a millimetre to the bottom left of the centre. take from that what you want. a different day a different mood would probably score me a bit differently. other tests showed me to be an optimistic pragmatist. others said i read a lot of books, which i dont. meh.

I spoke to an American dude the other day

He will vote Biden.
He knows Biden will be completely controlled by shadow Government.
He knows the false media narratives will scale back as a result.
He knows life will temporarily get simpler without the internal fighting.
He also knows the American way of life will slowly ebb away....
He wants to give up....its easier...

Jared Kushner’s Failures Come Back To Haunt In Damning New Supercut Video
MeidasTouch hits the president’s son-in-law with an attack video about his incompetence.



Jared Kushner, son-in-law of and adviser to President Donald Trump, is coming under fire in a new video from the progressive PAC MeidasTouch.
Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump ― the president’s daughter and also a White House adviser ― has a wide-ranging portfolio of duties which includes everything from the administration’s coronavirus response to peace in the Middle East. And as the spot pointed out, he didn’t achieve success in any of those areas:


He Went to Jared: Jared Kushner's Failure

When America needed leadership most, he went to Jared. We paid the price.

This reminds me of the lunacy of Trump and big strong crying men:

Trump has told tales of meeting crying supporters dozens of times, as you can watch in the video above. Depending on the rally, the crying happens “all the time” or “every time” someone meets him.
If anyone is interested this is what actual virtue signalling is.

Periodic reminder: Jared amended his OGE submission 40 times and Donnie demanded he get security clearance even 'tho the IC said 'whoa'.

Twitter Users Explode After Trump Again Claims Coronavirus Will ‘Just Disappear’
The president repeated the claim as the U.S. reeled from record spikes in new daily cases of COVID-19.



President Donald Trump sparked outrage on Wednesday for repeating his claim that the coronavirus will “just disappear,” even as new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. continued to surge to record daily highs and health experts issued dire warnings about the alarming new figures.
As a number of states reversed course on their reopening plans amid spiking case counts, Trump told Fox Business in an interview that he still believed the virus would simply go away on its own.
“I think we’re gonna be very good with the coronavirus,” he said. “I think that at some point that’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope.”

Trump ludicrously claimed to Fox Business just now that “I think we’re gonna be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point that’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope.” (The virus will not disappear on its own.) pic.twitter.com/ZkLtjKUEDu

According to the COVID Tracking Project, the U.S. broke a new record on Wednesday with more than 50,000 new cases reported. A day earlier, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, warned that the U.S. could see as many as 100,000 daily infections if states where cases are soaring don’t act more aggressively to mitigate the spread.
Eight states — Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Idaho, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas — announced single-day highs on Tuesday.

Trump, who has been claiming since February that the virus will miraculously disappear, has faced intense criticism and plummeting approval ratings over his downplaying of the virus that has now killed more than 128,000 people in the U.S.
Critics were appalled when he repeated the claim Wednesday.
The President remains totally deluded about coronavirus. https://t.co/XoB7XnUYmy

Trump said the virus would ‘disappear’ when the US had, by his count, 15 cases in February. Total confirmed US cases to date are 2.7 MILLION and rising fast. And he says the same thing today. It’s the definition of insanity. https://t.co/vU8Q4yyIzb

Mr. President, drinking bleach and injecting Lysol won’t make it disappear. https://t.co/ZMchGWGX9W

It’s going to just disappear does not seem like a viable pandemic strategy https://t.co/USVIcLNBbQ
— Molly Jong-Fast (@MollyJongFast) July 1, 2020
This alone should be impeachable: as cases soar, and hospitalizations and deaths start to rise, Trump says “I think that at some point that’s going to sort of just disappear.” https://t.co/yTc6D82xCC

There's a 'sir' story coming. It'll go something like:

"Big guy came up to me the other day in Mar a Lago, straight out of central casting, like Brad Pitt but bigger, lovely MAGA cap and you know MAGA caps are on sale at donaldtrump dot com right now, big guy, crying, tears, just weeping, said "Sir, why do you do it? Why do you take the abuse? You're the handsomest, richestesest, most sucessfulest American in the history of America, and maybe even the world. You were happy when you we're running you successful real estate company", and you know they pay golf in Scotland and I have real estate and a golf course in Scotland and not a lot of people know that, "And you were happy running your successful casinos, and successful airline, and successful university", perhaps the best university in the universe and a lot of people are saying that, "And your very successful water and steaks business", tremendous steaks, just tremendous, very successful, and he said, crying, "Sir, why don't you just go back home? Go back home to Florida and marry Ivanka and run your successful businesses, and be happy and enjoy your tremendous wealth and play golf, and leave the swamp and the do-nothing Democrat party and the haters in Washington DC, and be happy again?" And I said, "You know, that makes a lot of sense. Why don't I go back to Florida and marry Ivanka and run my tremendously successful businesses and be happy and leave the swamp and the do-nothing Democrat party and the haters in Washington". And I thought "What better time to do that than right now", so I won't be running for reelection", and I've spoken to Mike about it and he agrees that I should marry Ivanka and run my successful businesses and play golf be happy and Mike said he would call Nikki Haley and they would be run in my place and the campaign will be the best campaign ever, and no-one will ever have seen a better campaign, and it will be tremendous and they will make America, that I made great again, by the way, great, again. Again."
