The Democrats here (aka socialist, fascist, communist) do not tolerate different opinions. Rather than the brown shirts rounding people up, or antifa using violence, members here use the report post until republican, conservative members are driven from the community. The end result is not only an echo chamber but also group think.

Would you want to stay in a community where you are outnumbered 10 to 1, maybe even 100 to 1, and the other members were openly hostile?

Chances are no, you would not.
It's weird how you bunch together terms with clearly-defined meanings that clearly don't work together, but you just think they do so it must be OK.

People who read your posts get the impression that you are generally uneducated, grossly uninformed, and particularly incurious about life in general.

Does that sound accurate?

I have used the report button once, if memory serves, and that was about some rather openly hostility towards women...
And there is a difference between opinion and openly peddling Kremlin propaganda...

It does matter. It absolutely does. People are actually people, and not data on paper, spreadsheet guy.

Go out and understand the world for once, C- boy.

The economy was always going to be effected, but it's about when and how seriously...and yet, you seem to not care that 200k+ people have actually died, when all known reasonable approaches would have put our actual mortality, based on population, at somewhere around 50k or less, a this point, most likely. Going by actual first world countries with actual first rate healthcare and leadership.

But, you argue that doesn't matter anyway.

+150k deaths, explicitly and undeniably on Trump's hands "but it doesn't matter...because I will now make shit up about numbers."
I believe the "shithole" African countries have handled COVID better than the US.

Do you blame Reagan for HIV?

You want to talk about misinformation? Start with WHO, CDC, and people like Fauci.




Cult? Let me see if I can dig up your replies to some of the Anwar al-Awlaki threads where members of this forum were justifying the murder of US citizens by obama.
Bring it!

I do not have you ignore so I see your post, but I am ignoring your posts. This is one of the few times I will reply to you.

How many times have you reported me? Over the years how many times have you asked the mods to ban me?

not once. I have never reported anyone that isn't an obvious one-post spammer.(OK, except maybe that Bassha bastard that is a flaming vile racist asshole--that one time--for going WAAAAAAAAAAY over the line.)

Do you think I am lying?



How many times have you reported me? I'm guessing about 2 dozen, at least?

Repeat after me:

Donald Trump has little to no effect or enforcement of power on state or local governance.

So, if he has no effect, then why are you voting for him?

Never until today. Today, probably half a dozen times for personal attacks.

Nice to know you are not one of the communist who reports my posts and tries to get me banned.

Don't worry though, I will only stick around until after the election then I will be gone for another 2 years or so. Seems about a month is the most people here will tolerate an opposing opinion.

You, and others like you are one of the reasons why I leave for long periods of time. The "Your stupid", and "Your trolling".... takes a toll after awhile.

Thankfully there was a new rule that barred personal attacks - "posters in P&N will no longer be allowed to levy ad hominems or any sort of personal attacks against another poster. "

You can go over my past decade of posts, and you may find a handful of personal insults. I am just tired of being an emotional punching bag.

20 years, 40 years, 100 years from now Trump will still be blamed for covid simply because he is a republican. It is not what he did, or what he did not due, because he is not a democrat main stream media will blame trump for everything.

Obama on the other hand can murder US citizens, one of them a 17 year old young man, and Democrats will justify those murders.

Getting covid is in part a lifestyle choice and a work place hazard. How many of those deaths ignored social distancing rules, did not wear a mask, or died before we were even told to wear a mask? We have been given so much wrong (and bad) information from the WHO and CDC, yet people want to blame trump.
Trump is on tape confessing to deliberately misleading the public about the danger of the virus.

that is not very nice.

This place is an echo chamber for democrats and leftist. Obama can order US citizens killed without due process, and people here justify it. President Trump makes a few mistakes, and yall hang onto his every word and mistake.

Yes, Trump has made mistakes with covid, but he has done a LOT of good stuff also.

On the flip side yall defended obama tooth and nail.

I feel nothing Trump did would have changed the outcome, because it is down to the people. Just about everyone who became infected made a personal choice. They decided to go to a party, decided to go to a party while showing systems, went to a rally, went to a bar.....

Much like HIV covid is a lifestyle choice. But there are lots of people, such as factory workers, who were exposed by no fault of their own.

Take the local Dollar Store for example. It took upper management months to put up a plexiglass barrier between the cashier and the customer. Local county judge issued an order saying only X number of people were allowed in stores. Local Dollar Store district manger ordered employees to ignore the judges order. Local county judge issued mandatory mask order, and it was ignored right and left. No more than two family members in a store, whole families were going in the store, mom dad, and three kids.

None of this is Trumps fault. It is the choice of the people to ignore the seriousness of covid. But for some reason Trump gets the blame for people who do not take covid serious.

Since the 1980s people have been warned about unprotected sex and drug use spreads HIV, and people continue to use drugs and have unprotected sex. Nothing Reagan or the CDC did in the 1980s would have changed the HIV/AIDS outcome. Just as nothing Trump did would have changed the outcome of covid.

From the very beginning we were given so much misinformation from everyone - WHO, CDC, main stream media... etc. There were even articles saying wearing a mask could increase your risk of getting covid - https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/02/health/surgeon-general-coronavirus-masks-risk-trnd/index.html

But somehow all of this if Trumps fault?

"getting covid is part of a lifestyle choice and a work hazard."

jesus fucking christ, Texas Hiker--this is why you are a stupid, dangerous human, and it is right to call you that, because such a comment is plainly ignorant, plainly dangerous, and if you had any authority in life, would venture towards criminal liability.

All insults towards your lack of intelligence are clearly warranted, because you are simply too fucking stupid to interact with real people in the real world.

To claim that you are "too sensitive" to hang around here regularly is another plain lie. No one endures the type of vile evil and endless hate tossed about by human garbage like Donald Trump and is also "too sensitive" to hang when challenged.

I am not even going to report your post. You made me laugh; glad you enjoyed the post.

Besides the insults, why do you disagree that covid is a lifestyle choice and workplace hazard?

We know for a fact covid has had outbreaks in places like the jewish communities that have large gatherings. How many jewish birthday parties did the new york police have to break up? When places like bars reopen, cases go up. Mayor of new york is talking about locking parts of the city back down due to increased cases.

Going to bars, birthday parties.... are all choices.

"How does science work?"

Your problem, Texashiker, and yes, this is a real fucking problem, is that your life is organized as a belief system: what was once is, or once known, always is. It was written down in a book once, or someone told me it once, therefore it is always that way. You belive something like the Bible to be truth--that something that bases total truth on the existence of itself, as an actual model for truth.

This is plainly absurd, and hasn't worked in the modern world for nearly 2 centuries (much, much longer, really). You don't care to appreciate, and probably just don't have the capacity to understand how a method of truth seeking, which is what science is, works: You go with your best, most reasonable option based on prior, solid knowledge, and proceed. Refine as you need to. It has always worked this way.

You are taking people and common knowledge captured in a single snapshot in time, and treating that as the sum total of everything that they are, and everything that is. This is dishonest and really, just pure ignorant bullshit on your part. That, and you're simply perpetuating lies about the WHO and CDC, and Fauci.

If you can't understand that humans are at their best when they are working together to gain and improve knowledge, which means advice and protocols are revised, to get closer to truth, then you are of no use to common society. It's that simple.

Stop being angry that the world continues to reject you because you stubbornly refuse to join it. This is on you, Texashiker. So, again, I'm not sure why aren't just happy playing with your chickens and shooting the trees on your property. Sounds like an easy, blissful life, not having to think about all that stuff going on out there.
