Did the Republicans actually pick up 12 seats in the election?

No one is forcing you to work Jaskalas, you're welcome to set up a tent and beg in most Democrat cities, you can even shit on the sidewalk if you'd like, shoot drugs and drink MD 20/20
Actually, he'd be better off moving to a red state and mooching off the gov't teat.

I find it funny that you think that half your fellow citizens are imbeciles and need to be lead, informed, taught by such as you. I also find it funny that such an ignorant piece of trash as yourself places yourself so far above your fellow citizens.

Good luck with that.
I mean that is basically by definition right? If you understood math then you would see that since human intelligence is distributed along a bell curve and the average intelligence in the US is 98, then just under half the population are imbeciles.
For the most part I think those posting here are well above that average, so I would assume it is our civic duty to lead, inform, and teach them as best we can.
It seems like the proper way to go about running a society.

Remember, folks, this message was brought to you by the crowd that wants Trump to declare martial law and hold new a election in which only they are allowed to vote because they didn't like the results of the real election. Because they're not ignorant trash who feel their votes should count for more than those of their fellow citizens, amirite?

Good luck with that.

No, he'd be better off getting a job and/or returning to school, either a College or University or a trade school.
More Bootstraps.

Granted, you dropped the "become a millionaire" and replaced it with an honest answer. It's the default in America.

What I am telling you is, that with THE GAP, the default no longer serves its purpose. People are falling through with mere scraps to pick them up. And not everybody is helped. And every year more and more people fall through and need more help. Because Capitalism is evolving, labor is continuing to be devalued. People today work more to get less than decades past.

And you would tell them, what, just carry on and earn less?
America needs a robust and fully funded safety net.

What his crowd has been brainwashed not to see is that capitalism only works when tempered by morality. That Adam Smith didn't just write the book on capitalism, he wrote the book on morality as well. And that the reason that capitalism in America is currently faltering is because, under Trump, we have abandoned those moral principles required for a fully-functioning capitalist economy (in favor of the phony morals of hard-right evangelical Christianity, which focus on condemning 'sinners' rather than helping one's neighbors).

But consider how racism and wealth inequality hurts the employment and housing markets. How the lack of access to quality affordable education hurts America's global economic standing. And how dependence on corporate health insurance stymies entreprenurialism. And what are the right-wing Trumpist solutions to any of these issues? They don't have any, except for their phony bootstraps.

Do you also get an army of zombie minks when you immigrate? Cuz that would be cool.
No but you get to leave a horde of zombie homo sapiens behind.
The mink situation is absurd, should have been illegal 20 years ago, now its probably shut down for good. That being said, the only reason this reaches the news is because its out in the open. Walk inside your next door slaughterhouse and see whats going on there. Same with Faroese Islands and the "whale slaughter" - difference? Easier to get optics on it.

I was being polite. Most are political imbeciles, I mean idiots that think Trump tells the truth and cares about nothing but Americans and all that garbage, they are politically ignorant at best - but quite a few are also just corrupt. You got your white supremacist portion of Trumphumpers, other folks that just want looser regulations simply so they can pollute more or get away with fucking over workers more, etc...So just shitheads basically. So I was being a bit generous.

And let's face it, you Trumpers feel the same about Democrats since you idiots think Biden is a radical socialist about to turn America into Venezuela and all that other garbage you fools think. Anybody who supports that must be political imbeciles to you no? Except only one side can be right. And while the left has it's fringe political idiots, you political imbeciles are the entire fucking base of Trump land.

Again with a lie. What crowd? I certainly don't want President Trump to declare martial law. Speak for yourself, don't lie about what you think i want, you're usually wrong.

And in answer to no one, since none of the trolls that have responded to this post has talked about it. Yes, it looks as if the Republicans picked up 12 new seats in the 117th session. Very well poised to take control of the House in 2022.

Yes but only because of wide spread election fraud.

They don't have much in common. That's the whole damn point. :rolleyes:

Just like North Austin doesn't have much in common with Leona (pop. 175).
Ohh yes, Austin and the typical Democrat Mayor running things.

Yep, told his peons to stay at home while he was vacationing in Cabo.

What's worse, shitbag?

Telling people to do the right thing while doing the wrong thing, or telling people to do the wrong thing while doing the wrong thing?

WTF does that have to do with the Republicans gerrymandering the shit out of the county?

Do you have anything of substance to add to that discussion?

Edit: I didn't think so....

Why not? The only thing you ever do here, and have ever done here, is lie about what you think other people want. And you are always wrong. Literally no one here supports open borders, Venezuelan-style socialism, or violent protests, but you are always accusing people of that. Because you literally don't know how to do anything else but regurgitate those spoonfed talking points from your political masters. Just like you spout the usual partisan rhetoric about crime and homeless in "Democratic run" cities even though you (and your political masters) have NO solutions to those problems.

Meanwhile, you did support Flynn's pardon, and Flynn is calling for exactly that on Twitter, for Trump to declare martial law and hold a new election. With the guy that you voted for supporting him in this attempted treason against the Constitution. The fact that you're ashamed to own up to your party's agenda to overturn our electoral process and our Constitition should have been first clue that you're on the wrong side of history. That you have to lie all the time (as I noted above) should have been your second. And that you want nothing but ill and govt oppression of your political opponents... well.. that just proves what a sick fuck you are.

Flynn should never have been prosecuted in the first place. WTF is wrong with you that you think the charges are dropped against the guy but the fucking partisan asshole judge continues with the case?

Do you even remember what he was charged with ?
