I wonder how much money and organization went into pulling this off?
Well, since Soros is busy paying for riots and major illegal protests, Dem campaigns and a myriad of other disruptive activities, he’s probably depending on D. Trump to pay off the thousands of college students and 80 million other folks to boo Biden.
I've often observed that the Republican candidates have a tough row to hoe. You will lose some votes if you're not strongly pro-gun, you will lose other votes if you're not strongly anti-abortion, you will lose yet someone else's votes if you are not strongly fiscally conservative; in other words, Conservatives are more likely to sit out elections if there is weakness on any number of their key issues. Democrats, on the other hand, seem to love a candidate who will get on a talk show, play a saxophone, and field a "Boxers or briefs?" question rather than explaining that such an inquiry is beneath the dignity of the office.
Perhaps it's observer bias that makes me say "We have standards and they don't." But I honestly believe that Republicans would not stand for their party cheating while the other side is oblivious.
Back to the topic: I guess Biden is the kind of guy I'd like to misplace a beer with.
I came to the conclusion a long time ago -- which really came to light since March 2020 -- that the problem with liberals is that they simply have no clue what's really going on.
I have Saturday lunches with a liberal couple and another woman who are amazingly clueless. Back in 2018, after a somewhat contentious debate, I asked them if they could define "liberty." Well they couldn't, and still haven't. We didn't speak or hang out for several months; we do now but we avoid politics. However, it is almost impossible to avoid it now with everything having been politicized -- including a virus for the first time.
They have NO CLUE who BLM or Antifa really is. To them (and all libs) their "news" sources are just normal, unbiased, and truthful. All other sources, of course, are "right-wing" liars, women-haters, Bible-toting gun nuts who shoot innocent people at random, yadda yadda yadda.
Last summer (2020) right after July 4, when the country was being burned down and statues toppled, the single woman mentioned above was going on and on about how she hated to see everything being destroyed, the statues being pulled down, the destruction of our heritage, etc. YET SHE HATES TRUMP. She has no clue who stands for what, and is typical of all liberals I know. Fortunately, I only know seven.
Leftism is a cult. Facts, evidence, logic, common sense do not matter. Their God is the state, they have no other and their God is flawless. Leftist revolutions and totalitarian states have all been strikingly similar -- going all the way back to the French Revolution. Today's liberals are the "useful idiots" that Vladimir Lenin supposedly called the stupid people who supported the Communist agenda but had no clue what it was really all about.
"All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." -- Benito Mussolini
I saw this image earlier today, but I added the lower text.
I remember sitting on the front porch of a general store up in the socialist, syrup state (i.e., VT) and listening to the inane nattering of some locals trying to outdo each other with respect to their virtue signaling and liberal leanings. They were certainly big into group-think, attending progressive seminars, stereotyping, excluding of those who're not like-minded, acting out their assumed elitism, etc. The porch folk were different from the lunch crowd, whose non-thinking remarks might lead you to believe they had been lobotomized. Such is the nature of this cult.
My favorite part is they follow up their "group-think, attending progressive seminars, stereotyping, excluding of those who're not like-minded, acting out their assumed elitism," by then telling us how inclusive and diverse they are. They remind me of a child clomping around in daddy's shoes defiantly saying "I AM a big boy! I AM a big boy!" The strident nature of their declarations is an overt admission of the obvious truth.
I sat behind a couple of those on the train. They went on and on with the liberal and progressive mantras, not once voicing an original thought. Yet it was clear that they viewed themselves as the intelligent ones.
Biden is doling out a little bit of blackmail now.
He’s having a problem with some “red state” governors in relation to his latest 6 mandates. Essentially, they are refusing to be dictators. So, using the power of the Presidency, the rations of monoclonal antibody infusions are being cut by almost half, at least that’s here in Alabama.
The governor of Florida has vowed to buy his state’s needs from another company but as of yet, he hasn’t found that other company.
What Biden hasn’t gotten through to his very demented brain is that over 53% of those getting the infusions here in Alabama have already had their shots and are still getting sick.
Moreover, the majority of those who haven’t had the jab and have gotten sick are being given the infusions and they get better.
All that said, Biden has a vendetta and he will either be the supreme dictator and the state governors should tremble when he speaks otherwise he’ll sit back and watch people die until they do.
Yeah, clearly it's about power and control, with no consideration for health, whatsoever.
I think a lot of Democrats are supportive of their party no matter what so that they don’t have to admit that they’ve been wrong all this while because it would damage their ego. It’s a lot like when you’re a fan of a rotten football team but you still wear their jersey.
Yep, the American "useful idiots" are all about "diversity" and have been for a long time.
EXCEPT for diversity in thought. NO! NO! NO! -- you must toe the line when it comes to thought.
There’s a middle aged fella by the name of David who walks down our street at around 0730 every morning on his way to the corner store, supposedly to wait for his ride. He doesn’t own a watch so whilst passing by he always says “howdy boss” and asks me what time it is and I always give him the time but rounded off. 0725 is about 0730. 0735 is still about 0730.
One day though when I was at the corner store and saw him waiting for his ride, he again asked me what time it was and I told him but then I asked him why he didn’t own a watch.
He laughed a bit and said, “I don’t need one because there are enough people around who have watches and I can ask you and them what time it is”.
“But, what if someone told you the wrong time”? A bit more of a laugh and he said, you wouldn’t do that. You’re a nice guy.
That answer didn’t particularly strike me as odd but it did make for a heckova metaphor when on another occasion when I was at the store he was talking to a couple of friends and I overheard him saying how much better he thought the country was going now that Trump wasn’t the President any longer.
Ya see, David would rather trust someone, anyone, to tell him what time it is than to go out, do a little shopping and buy his own reliable watch so he’d always know the true time.
It also tells me why he thinks this country is so much better now. He depends on “nice guys” to do his thinking for him too.
LOL, good story Bobby. ^
When we went to war after 911, one of my older sisters said "If it would only end the fighting, we should just let them [the Muslims] take us over." To which I replied "So you'd be OK with our niece or any girl being the victim of an honor killing if she dared go to the movies with her friends without a male relative escorting her? Just kill her for that????" My sister got angry and stomped off!!! There was no "Yeh, what was I thinking" or "I hadn't thought of that." Just get pissed at me pointing out the reality and stomp off in a childish huff. She was in her early 50s at the time.
They learn nothing.
