    This is just another of the numerous stories about his lifelong lying.

    In 2016 people were telling stories left and right about the nonstop lies Trump has spewed, as well as the fake awards, fake news articles, fake magazine covers, etc. that he keeps in his offices and homes.

    Just a petty, childish, wannabe tuff guy, that is so fragile and broken inside, that he created a false image of being some brilliant genius.

    Ginna Thomas and Clarence too, need to be held accountable for their BS.

    Ginni Thomas made almost $700,000 from the far-right Heritage Foundation from 2003 to 2007.

    Clarence Thomas had to fill out a standard form listing his "spouse noninvestment income."

    He put zero.

    Oh it gets worse: the Heritage Foundation regularly files or joins "amicus curiae" (friend of the court) briefs on cases that are being heard by the Supreme Court, where the party submitting the brief urges the Court to rule a particular way.

    For far too long Dems and Independents have been like "Ohh, the logical, rational people will show up to vote and keep the Christian bigoted extremists at bay." Always thinking the smarter and albeit pacificist type of people will help keep the democratic republic safe from the far-right extremists by showing up to vote when needed.

    Need to be on the offense and call out their anti-American BS. We have a minority group of people in this Country who have gotten louder and louder about how they "feel" about the "true" version of how this Country should look.

    Newsom is a joke.

    in 2022 so far, the top 34 cities with the the highest murder rates are 32 run by democrat mayors. The other 2 are independents that used to be democrats. Its not until you get the number 35 where you''' find a republican mayor.

    .


    If only they were allowed to build walls around their cities to stop all the good guys with guns that sell their guns on the open market to shady middlemen that then help funnel the guns to the major cities.


    This has been a decades in the making plan by the NRA and nefarious forces who fund their "political action" side.

    They weaken gun laws to make accountability of who owns what and how many are in existence, so that guns can be funneled into cities - where a more variety of ethnicities live - and then as crime grows - most mayors are left powerless to try and control anything because of bureaucratic shenanigans from state governors, or state AG's, and the state legislatures, and up to the federal government.
    And the whole point is to erode the big cities and make country folk feel nice and comfy about themselves.

    I've been hearing the same nonsense for yrs from past on great grandparents, or grandparents, great uncles and aunts, uncles, old neighbors, and even old friends and HS classmates - about how they don't go to the city because of all the "crime."

    So that leads to "At what point was the big ole city some crimeless utopia?" I heard it all my life from people who say they don't go there because of all the "crime."

    And yet, the same people(well, not the dead ones) regurgitate the same tropes about [waves finger in the air][pounds chest]"I remember the good ole days of the city!"

    When mudder fooker?! When?! It's one or the g*d da#n other!

    And that's my point. It's all by design. And designed to create a disgust for the big cities. Makes simple country folk feel all cozy and warm about their bigoted selves.

    IDGAF! Tear it all down.

    Total anarchy.

    Destroy the whole BS financial markets. Crash the stock market. Default on all US gov bills/notes/bonds. Pension funds crumble.

    Mass hysteria and chaos in the streets. Lose at minimum half the population.

    Infrastructure and manufacturing in shambles.

    Surely the national security of the Country won't suffer?

    I mean, come on...I'm constantly told that all the Jimbo's and Jethro's out in the sticks have watched Red Dawn enough times that they can take on the Russian AND Chinese military on their own. They'll MacGyver their way to victory.

    And how did we get here? Because a half black educated man became President and for 8 yrs a narcissistic, fake billionaire, petulant man-child ranted on twitter about him, all while growing a newfound fanbase.

    The f*#k your feelings crowd sure luv to preach the Mind Your Own Business mantra, all while twisting every thing they don't like, whether it be certain ethnicities, religions, level of education, etc. into some form of an attack on THEM.

    It's constantly framed that way. That THEY'RE the ones being attacked. Just by accepting and assimilating to the world around themselves it's framed as they are the victim in all of this.

    It's not new. It's just been amplified in the internet age, and social media era.

    IDGAF! Tear it all down.

    Total anarchy.

    Destroy the whole BS financial markets. Crash the stock market. Default on all US gov bills/notes/bonds. Pension funds crumble.

    Mass hysteria and chaos in the streets. Lose at minimum half the population.

    Infrastructure and manufacturing in shambles.

    Surely the national security of the Country won't suffer?

    I mean, come on...I'm constantly told that all the Jimbo's and Jethro's out in the sticks have watched Red Dawn enough times that they can take on the Russian AND Chinese military on their own. They'll MacGyver their way to victory.

    And how did we get here? Because a half black educated man became President and for 8 yrs a narcissistic, fake billionaire, petulant man-child ranted on twitter about him, all while growing a newfound fanbase.

    The f*#k your feelings crowd sure luv to preach the Mind Your Own Business mantra, all while twisting every thing they don't like, whether it be certain ethnicities, religions, level of education, etc. into some form of an attack on THEM.

    It's constantly framed that way. That THEY'RE the ones being attacked. Just by accepting and assimilating to the world around themselves it's framed as they are the victim in all of this.

    It's not new. It's just been amplified in the internet age, and social media era.

    The kid is on a roll! Somebody should have let sleeping dogs lay! Putting the truth about crime out there, in Big cities, or at least gun crime!
    A lot of posters are not going to like hearing the truth and facts about the states these cities are in because of who runs them!! expect a lot of ........ but, but, but ,if, if, if, if.
    It will be same ole story! They only want to talk about reasons things happen when they are wrong, always the short answer with no reasoning is what they like!!

    It's already started. Must be some posters on here that are on the payroll to help blast out the GOP talking points.

    They were trying to run with inflation, inflation, inflation, economy, economy, economy scare tactics. But I guess internal polling showed that wasn't putting enough fear into people.
    So now the strategy has pivoted to the ole reliable classic, crime, crime, crime.

    FROM AN ARTICLE:

    But in an election year dominated by talk of 21st-century conspiracy craziness like QAnon and even worries over new incarnations of 1930s fascism, Johnson has instead righted his once-sinking electoral ship by instead summoning a different era: the 1980s, and the golden age of Republicans using a toxic mix of crime, fear, and straight-up racism to scare white middle-class voters about a rival who in this instance happens to be an African American.

    Johnson’s attack dogs at the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC), who are pouring millions of dollars into this make-or-break Badger State race, ran a TV ad calling the man seeking to become Wisconsin’s first Black senator “different” and “dangerous” and depicting him with three women of color in Congress nicknamed “The Squad” — even though Barnes has not campaigned with them. Even worse than that dishonest demagoguery, the state GOP then sent voters a mailer on crime and the election in which Barnes’ skin color was clearly darkened by several shades — lest any voters missed the not-so-subliminal connection.

    The Johnson ads are the cutting edge of a sad and predictable return to form for a Republican Party that seemed lost in the wilderness a few weeks ago. When the party’s na´ve hopes to win the 2022 midterms on inflation — an issue on which the GOP has offered no new ideas — inevitably faltered, someone dug out a faded, 40-year-old playbook and found their old box of racist dog whistles. The GOP is partying like it’s 1988 — the year that scary pictures of a felon they called Willie Horton and grainy images of Black crime saved a party equally devoid of actual policies.

    Turn on your TV set — especially here in my home state of Pennsylvania, where a once seemingly dead-in-the-water Mehmet Oz has revitalized his Republican Senate campaign against Democrat John Fetterman — and suddenly the 2022 midterms are all crime, all the time.

    But it hasn’t been enough for Oz and his deep-pocketed backers to summarize Fetterman’s work on much-needed criminal justice reform in two words — “pro-criminal.” Oz and his supporters like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have even gone after Fetterman’s trademark tattoos — ironically, since most mark his commitment as mayor of Braddock, Pa., to end murders there — and falsely implied that Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor was once in bed with a gang, the Crips.

    If you lived through that 1988 presidential race when George H.W. Bush saved his White House bid by saturating the airways with the message that Democrat Michael Dukakis was “soft on crime,” or just know how the inertia of American white supremacy generally flows, you won’t be surprised to learn the new-but-really-old GOP strategy still works. The most recent polls show Oz — once trailing by double digits after a pounding from the Fetterman campaign as a New Jersey carpetbagger who doesn’t understand Pennsylvania — is back within striking distance while Johnson has regained a slight lead on Barnes in recent days.

    And while the Pennsylvania and Wisconsin races — likely to determine which party runs the now 50-50 divided Senate in 2023 — are grabbing the most attention, GOP candidates from coast to coast have abandoned talk of no-longer-super-high gas prices to instead mischaracterize Democratic statements from 2020′s George Floyd protests and — falsely, in the vast majority of cases — claim their rivals want to “defund the police.”

    Typical is an ad from New York’s underdog Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin that shows grainy images from shooting scenes of looting (one is from 3,000 miles away in Oakland) that warns voters: “Vote like your life depends on it. It just might.”

    Two things are happening here. One, of course, is that crime is legitimately seen as a problem by millions of voters. The pandemic — which both seriously eroded the wider social fabric but also saw a surge in gun ownership — triggered a nationwide short-term spike in homicides and some other categories of violent crime, especially in cities like Philadelphia and Milwaukee. Although there are already signs that crime is subsiding in many locales, the public perception — aided by the reality of high-profile incidents like last week’s fatal shooting after a football scrimmage at Roxborough High School — for many is that law and order has broken down. My contacts who’ve canvassed voters in white working-class areas like older rowhouse streets in South Philly tell me crime is the only thing on some voters’ minds.

    Yet hypocrisy abounds. There is the hypocrisy that — much like inflation — the Republicans (or most Democrats, for that matter) aren’t offering solutions beyond the continued insanity of hiring more cops, despite a lack of evidence that this actually reduces crime as opposed to the harder work of neighborhood intervention. There is the hypocrisy that a surge in gun ownership — with more than 20 million new firearms sold during the pandemic, many to first-time buyers — aided by GOP opposition to gun control was arguably a bigger factor in the murder spike than any Democratic policies. And there is the hypocrisy that candidates like Oz’s Pennsylvania running mate — gubernatorial hopeful Doug Mastriano, who aided Donald Trump’s fake-elector scheme — or Wisconsin’s Johnson, also tied to the Jan. 6 plotting now under federal investigation — are the actual “pro-criminal” candidates.

    But these hypocrisies won’t stop Republican operatives because these racist dog whistles with their 40-year-old echoes still come in loud and clear for so many voters. Most don’t have time for arcane debates on inflation and monetary policy, but respond viscerally to emotional appeals — sometimes subtle and sometimes as blatant as darkening a Black candidate’s skin — that their traditions of white privilege are under assault. In 1988, voters were starting to tire of the “tickle-down economics” of Ronald Reagan and his handpicked successor in the elder Bush — until their lizard brains were manipulated by tying Dukakis to “Willie” (actually William, which apparently didn’t sound Black enough for Team Bush) Horton, a Massachusetts inmate who’d committed rape and murder on a weekend pass, and a revolving door of criminals who happened to be Black.

    Bush 41′s chief strategist was the late, legendary Lee Atwater, who in a famous then-off-the-record 1981 interview explained how the GOP inherited the mantle of white supremacy and modernized it into a “Southern strategy” that shifted from overt N-word bigotry and “state’s rights” to more abstract appeals to whites: “Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a by-product of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.”

    Honestly, the Republican approach in 2022 — the ridiculous loose talk about Fetterman’s tattoos or his supposed ties to the Crips, or the darkening of Barnes’ skin — seems less abstract and more openly crude some 34 years later. This probably reflects a generation and a half of America becoming more multicultural, more educated and — at least among younger folks — more tolerant, and a white supremacy hierarchy hanging on by its fingernails.

    And yet the GOP still refuses to do anything for YOU — the middle-class American who struggles with things like stagnant wages, or incomprehensible college costs, or medical bankruptcies. They can only win elections in the 21st century by pitting you against THEM, by protecting you from “The Other.” That means the crudest dehumanization of people.

    Migrants and their kids fleeing murder and despair in Central America are redefined as “illegals” whose humanity is stripped to the point where fascist politicians can dump them on an island as a political stunt. Or struggling human beings are rebranded as nothing more than “criminals” who can never be rehabilitated or get a second chance to redeem the worst day of their life, whose release from America’s overstuffed prisons demands that you vote Republican.

    It’s a racist, immoral strategy — that, tragically but inevitably, is working all too well with an election little more than one month away. The frustrating part is we know that a majority of Americans want a nation that is welcoming to refugees and knows how to reduce crime without locking up entire neighborhoods. What we won’t know until Nov. 8 is whether these good hearts can outvote a nation’s overheated lizard brains."

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Heck, in my state, a black man is trying to unseat the swarmy, feckless Rand Paul. I don't think is qualified, but neither was Trump, or people like Cawthorn, MTG, Boebert, and many others past and present IMO, but that's just how the cONsTitUtiOn is set-up.

    Rand been running ads - and I don't think he even mentions Booker by name - at least the ones I've saw - Rand just refers to his "opponent" as who he's talking about. But what irks me is how he can say open-ended lies. Or he alludes to Biden being the fault of something, but not specifying how he is or why he is at fault.
    Rand is just facing the camera the whole ad and stating disingenuous "facts."
    Rand says something like we have to stop the radical liberal agenda and the out of control spending. He says something about Biden policies have caused the national debt to soar to all time highs.
    Such BS. It "soars" to record highs under every president. By the time a Dem has been an office long enough for any policy changes to start showing an effect on the yearly budget being balanced, and therefore less spending, aka borrowing, aka issuing of bills/notes/bonds to fund the gov - as soon as a Dem can start claiming they are finally at a point to start being able to try and put a dent in the national debt - the Repubs always seem to win, and then come in and slash taxes and change policies, leading right back to unbalanced budgets and the need to borrow, err, print money. And the cycle has just been on repeat for yrs.

    "We" the US own 2/3 of the national debt. Spread around from various banks, hedge funds, pension fund managers/investment groups, insurance companies, and regular everyday people that buy bills/notes/bonds direct or through a broker.
    The other 1/3 of the debt is owned by foreign investors. Same thing, banks, hedge funds, investment groups, pension funds from cities all over the world, insurance groups, and even foreign governments, and foreign nationals.
    Out of that 1/3 held by foreign investors, China does lead the pack - they dethroned England in past decade - and after those 2, it's pretty much any and all Countries that own(or have investors within their Country who own) the remaining 1/3 of the US national debt.

    But back to Rand. He says something in the ad about Biden's policies have destroyed small businesses. Or that Biden has "forced" small businesses to close. Again, it's an open-ended statement. How did Biden exactly do that?

    I get Rand's weekly emails. I guess because I sent an email or two over the yrs about how much of a fu*ktard he is, that I got auto signed up for them.
    He loads them up with all the buzzwords: Radical, leftist, agenda, socialist, extremist, and blah, blah, blah.

    Rand's whole schtick is he's a "deficit hawk." Oh, in that ad he also says something about how he's never voted for an unbalanced budget. [cough, cough]
    He has this yearly "tradition" where he airs out his so-called grievances against the big bad out-of-control spending.
    He'll list all these amounts from various bills that he was able to cut, or trim, that he viewed as waste. And it'll be like 25k for so-n-so study for yada, yada, yada - or 125k for grants to fund blah, blah, blah research - and maybe 1 million from this or that bill that allocated funding for research on the effect of cocaine on homing pigeons, or some zhit like that.
    Even more wild is how sometimes the funding might've went to a in state university, but he sees it as a waste.
    We already know he doesn't put much trust in the state's medical centers, hospitals, or surgeons - because after his neighbor kicked his heinie , he needed a minor routine surgery, and flew to Canada to have it done, and was said to of paid cash for it.

    But back to his so-called cutting of the pork. You can add up all his alleged cutting of bloated wasteful spending, and then take that number and then go to the national debt clock website, and within a minute or two, the debt has grown past whatever trivia amount he "slashed" from various bills over the past year.

    It's all optics and misdirection. In the ad he even says something like how with all the money he saved us taxpayers, he was able to "return" that money back to the US Treasury to lower the national debt. [cough , cough] Such BS.

    What's laughable about the whole schtick is that if you were to add up all the amounts, like 25k here, 130k there, 335k over there, 1 million here, 75k there - and even if it adds up to 5 million or 10 million - the percentage of money he's "saving" the taxpayers in relation to the overall yearly Federal Budget - would be like the average person making 50k, trying to figure out how to trim 10 cents, maybe 25 cents, from their yearly budget. Zhit! I waste 1 or 2 dollars a day at the vending machine.
    Sure I can buy in bulk, or store brand stuff(which I do too) and bring my own snacks from home - but by my lazy azz not wanting to pack and keep track of a food storage bag or cooler I'm helping keep people employed at manufacturing plants for the various snacks, plus the need for vending machines, a person to perform maintenance on said vending machines, a route driver to stock the vending machines, his truck will need maintenance, his uniform will need cleaning and replaced at times, and on down the line - all by me "wasting" a buck or two each day at a vending machine. Yes, I know I and I alone aren't keeping the whole vending company afloat.
    But the point is about frivolous spending and how one azzhat Senator's view of 'waste' is so trivial.
    If i was to pack my own snacks from home, and buy store brand items, and then kept hounding other coworkers and chastising them about "wasting" their money on the vending machines, and more and more people listened and followed along to my lead, next thing would be the vending service company would pull the machines eventually, then the "trickle down effect" comes into play. Bwahahaha.

    Ok, to finish up.

    Another attack ad, or flyer I have received in the mail about Booker, was from some Kentucky Freedom PAC with a mailing address in Athens GA. - WTF?

    Labels him a "Radical Socialist."

    Says Booker supports a failed ideology that will ruin Ky...and America. Then proceeds to give a list, or bullet points.
    1) Job-Killing "Green New Deal." - Not sure how the Green New Deal is job-killing, or a failed ideology, since it hasn't even had time to be implemented, much less have any data to back up the statement. Reminds me of the signing of the "Inflation Reduction Act." First off, horrible name. Not sure how that name went through the group testing phase. But the bill itself had little to nothing to do about "reducing inflation."
    But of course because of the name of it, before the ink was even dry - the RW pundits were all "Where's the reduced inflation Joe?" Not even giving it a week, much less months or even half a yr, or a full yr to see how the new ideas pan out, before saying or claiming it's a failed ideology.
    2) Coddling Criminals. - Not sure how Booker has done that being he isn't an ex AG , DA, or Jailer.

    3) Open Borders. - It's laughable at this point about the border talk. First off it pisses in the face of all the hard-working border agents hard at work everyday. There are record busts happening all the time concerning drugs. And no Dem or Independent supports "open borders."
    There's been an influx of immigrants coming to the borders for past decade, it's not new. The Reps and Senators sitting on the committee(s) overseeing the State Dept. should be working to have US diplomats meeting with heads of state from these other countries and trying to find out how the US, and others, can help with the issue(s) of why people are fleeing these countries. Gotta help find a reason or solution to make people want to stay in their home country.
    4) Runaway Inflation. - I don't think Booker is fist punching the air in support of "runaway inflation."
    5) Special Interest Bailouts. - That's a open-ended blanket bullet point.
    6) Government Run Healthcare. - A lot of people support a "National form of government sponsored insurance" which is what Medicare/Medicaid actually are. Doctors, nurses, specialists, medical clinics, medical facilities, and in some cases even some hospitals, are all free to not accept Medicare/Medicaid if they so choose.
    I'm not gonna rant about how much of an out-of-control monster that whole part of our economy has grown to become, and why trying to disrupt the system is gonna be a huge fight. Trump ran on how he would have the bigly, bestest, so cheap, make our heads spin, greatest healthcare plan - and within 1st yr gave up on it. He was asked about 6 months into his presidency about how it was coming along, and he was like "Who knew healthcare was so complicated." Umm...like every fu*king one. And then he was never really pressed about it again. Probably because of his Steve Bannon tactics of slinging so much poo-poo around that the media couldn't keep up with which new story to chase or follow through on.


    All I know is that the GOP doesn't have solutions. Only angry fanatical handmaids tale type ideas for some mythical form they want to "return' the Country back to.

    Another thing about how meaningless the numbers are for the Big ole Cities, especially ones that have a Dem(or Independent) Mayor - is that half those are probably in States controlled by GOP legislatures who have relaxed any sort of meaningful gun laws, especially for concealed carry.
    And, why is it only gun deaths that get fixated on that are high in Big ole Cities, and not other things that would obviously be higher in Big Cities , like more traffic jams, or more vehicle wrecks, or more rapes, or more just about anything? Probably b/c it's just logical that the odds will be higher in larger cities that a person will be a victim of some sort of crime or involved in an accident.

    Another thing is that even in Dem Mayor Cities, whether or not located in a GOP led State(Gov and/or Legislature), or a Dem led State(Gov and/or legislature) the voting results for the Mayoral election in the Big Cities will still be fairly close, some really close. It'd be rare to see a 80/20, or even a 75/25 result favoring Dems. It's more than likely 55/45 or 60/40.
    So that leads to if an armed society is a polite society - why aren't all these self-proclaimed "locked and loaded everywhere I go" types keeping the crime in check in the Big ole Cities?
    I've been led to believe that there are Repubs strapped and ready to shoot and be the "good guy with a gun" to stop a baddy in his tracks.
    What's that? It's only in their delusional wet dreams - ok - got it.

    This has been a decades in the making plan by the NRA and nefarious forces who fund their "political action" side.

    They weaken gun laws to make accountability of who owns what and how many are in existence, so that guns can be funneled into cities - where a more variety of ethnicities live - and then as crime grows - most mayors are left powerless to try and control anything because of bureaucratic shenanigans from state governors, or state AG's, and the state legislatures, and up to the federal government.
    And the whole point is to erode the big cities and make country folk feel nice and comfy about themselves.

    I've been hearing the same nonsense for yrs from past on great grandparents, or grandparents, great uncles and aunts, uncles, old neighbors, and even old friends and HS classmates - about how they don't go to the city because of all the "crime."

    So that leads to "At what point was the big ole city some crimeless utopia?" I heard it all my life from people who say they don't go there because of all the "crime."

    And yet, the same people(well, not the dead ones) regurgitate the same tropes about [waves finger in the air][pounds chest]"I remember the good ole days of the city!"

    When mudder fooker?! When?! It's one or the g*d da#n other!

    And that's my point. It's all by design. And designed to create a disgust for the big cities. Makes simple country folk feel all cozy and warm about their bigoted selves.

    IDGAF! Tear it all down.

    Total anarchy.

    Destroy the whole BS financial markets. Crash the stock market. Default on all US gov bills/notes/bonds. Pension funds crumble.

    Mass hysteria and chaos in the streets. Lose at minimum half the population.

    Infrastructure and manufacturing in shambles.

    Surely the national security of the Country won't suffer?

    I mean, come on...I'm constantly told that all the Jimbo's and Jethro's out in the sticks have watched Red Dawn enough times that they can take on the Russian AND Chinese military on their own. They'll MacGyver their way to victory.

    And how did we get here? Because a half black educated man became President and for 8 yrs a narcissistic, fake billionaire, petulant man-child ranted on twitter about him, all while growing a newfound fanbase.

    The f*#k your feelings crowd sure luv to preach the Mind Your Own Business mantra, all while twisting every thing they don't like, whether it be certain ethnicities, religions, level of education, etc. into some form of an attack on THEM.

    It's constantly framed that way. That THEY'RE the ones being attacked. Just by accepting and assimilating to the world around themselves it's framed as they are the victim in all of this.

    It's not new. It's just been amplified in the internet age, and social media era.

    Good video. The guy was a democrat obviously and the guy agreeing with him was as well. Then the Hungarian immigrant set him straight.

    Never forget who fought against freeing the slaves and who started the KKK. Democrats.

    At some point - i say modern internet age, like '95 onward, and especially since social media - the term and definition of "liberal" has been misappropriated and hijacked as a blanket all evil word.
    I considerable myself as a liberal and and a conservative. Whatever makes sense to me.

    Liberalism today isn't what it used to be.

    Classical liberalism is a political tradition and a branch of liberalism that advocates free market and laissez-faire economics; civil liberties under the rule of law with especial emphasis on individual autonomy, limited government, economic freedom, political freedom and freedom of speech.

    I mean, who isn't for that?

    The problem with liberalism today is its gone from things like gays should allowed to marry and adopt, which I have never argued against, to men can get pregnant and gender is fluid. Shit like that. And if you disagree, then the left will try and cancel you and call you names.

    Liberalism today is for rule of law, limited government or freedom of speech.

    You posted a video of Newsom deceiving people again. Just like when he forced people to close their businesses and imposed mask mandates while he was eating at the French Laundry without a mask, indoors and with no social distancing to speak of. That is why California tried to recall him. Newsom is the worst type of politician and while horrible politicians aren't exclusive to the democratic party, the vast majority are. All he has are his looks. An empty suit just as Obama was. I wish that wasn't true but it is.

    The point I was attempting to make about murders, is there's more to it. Anyone that follows politics to any degree knows cities run by democrats are bad on crime in general. This is just a fact. Democrats are the ones who pushed to defund the police and stop arresting people for theft. If it was the republicans doing this, I would be saying the same thing.

    Where's Jackie? I don't know who is more stupid. Biden or the idiots that voted for him. And then of course the ones that are at the top of the stupidity list are the ones that continue to support him...... They are true brain dead, pink-hair, jobless, mindless, fat-assed losers.

    Wow 81 million Americans that vote are jobless and have pink hair!
    I guess they were not to lazy to vote!
    Then you got the 72 million that are brainwashed (not all just the ones that make under $500,000 a year and some of them) that think it's great to give rich people another tax cut!

    81* million people are directly responsible for all of the chaos that is happening around the globe.

    But hey, at least you won't get any more mean tweets.

    How does all of that winning feel?

    I assure you I want! I have a tweeter account for over 5 years now. Ive probably looked at it 20 times

    So you are saying America is responsible for all the bad (sorry I meant choas)going on around the world? You really do hate America, or the 81 million anyway!

    The crazy thing is you probably believe this, trying to understand how people that seem smart, in other aspects of life, can be so lost when it comes to anything political

    At least he's not an election denier. Playdoh brain will never forgive anyone who don't vote MAGAA. Going 2B angry the rest of his pitiful existence, I'd avoid the kid. He's still angry Biden raised the price of his chicken nuggets.
