  1. clearly it's not all trumps fault. trump is a symptom of a rot inherent in American politics - a rejection of facts and expertise in favor of wild conspiracy theories, a win at all costs/no compromise stance, abdication of conservative principles once held dear, and demonization of political opponents. This is much more than one man, and has been brewing beneath the surface for decades, if not generations.
  2. Avenetti never represented the democrat party or any of it's leadership. He was a media darling for a minute but he had no formal relationship AFAIK.
  3. Michael Avenatti represented a porn star. Guliani represents the president. Not the same.
  4. are you really comparing a few opinion pieces from media hacks with 40-50 actual lawsuits? come on now. You have to know these are not the same.
  5. There were a lot of statistical firsts this year. Why anyone finds this odd is beyond me. There are a lot of reasons why 2020 is unique: COVID - need I say more? a president who has openly feuded with the media for years a president who ran unopposed on his party ticket a few months after being impeached a large faction of the incumbents party openly campaigning against him (Lincoln Project) a president who signaled prior to the election that he would cry FRAUD!!1!! if he did not win (in fact, the same president who called FRAUD!111! when he did win in the prio
  6. honestly, I drink less now than before.
  7. To be fair, in 2016 the loudest conspiracy charge was illegals voting for Hillary and busses of people from MA voting in NH.
  8. You only have to go back 4 years to find a democrat losing a presidential election and see the reaction. I challenge you to find one politician or serious media member posting as late as Devember 7 that the election was a fraud.
  9. No. The average Republican voter jas got to be smarter than that, right? I mean, it's the hackiest of partisan hacks that are being really loud and obnoxious with this crap now, right? The average Joe who has seen politicians lose gracefully for every election ever knows this is all whining from the whiniest whiner there ever was, right?
  10. Yup. I don't care if Teump never concedes. What matters is if Biden is afforded a transition and that process has started.
  11. the problem as i see it is that when liberals try to distill something down to an easy slogan, they are completely oblivious to how their slogan will be used against them. "defund the police" is a perfect example. If you are coming from the position that the police have been oppressing your family for generations, this slogan makes a hell of a lot of sense. However, this idea scares the crap out of millions of Americans. It's completely tone deaf. I don't know what a better message needs to be but this ain't it.
  12. Democrats are terrible at messaging. "Stop asking police to do social or psychiatric work" somehow becomes "defend the police" and the right wing echo chamber convinces millions of people that Joe Biden wants to let criminals roam the streets freely. "Medicare for all" somehow becomes "socialism" and the right wing echo chamber convinces millions of people that the democrats want to turn the US into Venezuela.
  13. IMO, the energy from the right was driven primarily from the desire to taste liberal tears - i.e. a rejection of political correctness, environmentalism, etc. If there was a perceived improvement in quality of life, that perception stemmed completely from the right wing echo chamber repeating nonsense, which is essentially my point.
  14. Do you think many people are happy now? What about before the pandemic? Before Trump’s presidency? Folks on the right have convinced themselves that everything was garbage between 2008 and 2016, and then Jan 20, 2016 everything magically improved. The economy was garbage before Trump, employment was awful, manufacturing jobs weren't coming back, etc. It's as if the Obama economy is forever confined 2008-2010, ignoring the consistent growth since then. Quality of life generally improved under Obama (once we got passed the 2008 recession). That improvement continued under Trump
  15. I know this is probably unpopular but I support the China trade war. I don't think it has been handled well or been successful, but it's a topic that needed to be addressed.
  16. Was the EC more an artifact of appeasement to the slave states than agriculture?
  17. The other day I saw a man on TV who claimed to be the president-elect. I believe his name was Biden, probably related to Hunter somehow. How can he claim to be president-elect if TRUMP is president? WHY WONT SOMEONE INVESTIGATE?
  18. put me down for Rudy having the affidavits he claims, but they aren't nearly as damaging as he thinks. It's going to be a bunch of hearsay and poll workers being rude to poll watchers.
  19. This looks exactly like that bunk that Dr Shiva was pushing earlier.
  20. Lol, I only went back one page. You were cool before if became tedious.
  21. "Quote schtick has become tedious. Time to update the ignore list." --Moleculo ETA: Not @The Football Freak, @Osaurus, or @JAA. You guys are cool.
  22. it was wrong of Facebook/Twitter to allow all of the disinformation to flow freely in 2016. It was wrong of them to overly moderate their platforms in 2020. They haven't found that happy medium yet, but I can guarantee when they do, people will still whine about it. Frankly, they are closer to it now than they were back then.
