    People being imprisoned just for helping people get an abortion? Putting out bounties to imprison women escaping Texas to get an abortion because of rape or medical reasons? And don’t even think they have stopped there.

    If Texas hasn’t gone full-blown Taliban, it’s not because they are not willing – or trying.

    We CREATED the effect, by definition, so saying that we can’t do anything about it is simply wrong.

    Not according to recent historical research. The reason they refused to negotiate is because Nixon secretly used back channels to tell them they would get a better deal from him – which, for the record, they did not. Before that, LBJ had made significant progress.

    I’m seeing this kind of thing a lot, but it is worth remembering that we know that Nixon undercut LBJ’s Vietnam peace efforts, which were close to success, in order to get himself into office, and by this act extended it at least seven more years, as well as allowing for the “secret” bombing of Cambodia that was only secret to the American people.

    Nixon was a deliberately evil manipulator of world events for personal benefit. #45 is a just a petty con man in the hands of foreign powers and willing to do anything for money and to protect himself from being convicted of his many crimes – including sedition and treason.

    Well, to be fair, he improved Lincoln some, too. And he did get the spray tan in there on #45.

    He’s not selling them the means to make a nuclear weapon, Ted. Nor is he writing love letters to dictators and making jokes about “president for life” being a good idea. I fully expect him to step down at the end of his term, not launch a violent attack on the Capitol.

    I already said I’m not happy with most Democrats, and indeed I’ve said previously (on your page) that he wasn’t my first, second, or third choice. But if you can’t tell the difference between socially-liberal-but-corporate-friendly and freaking NAZIs, you need to check yourself.

    Ah, yes, “facts” being whatever nonsense you choose to spew. No wonder you support #45. Or are you being paid in rubles?

    It certainly used to be true that the parties were becoming indistinguishable (European friends of mine in the 90s certainly thought so), but that was before the fruits of Reagan’s alliance with the fundamentalist right and Christian Dominionists really took hold and with #45’s help moved the Republican Party into active Nazism.

    The Democrats aren’t the ones playing footsie with dictators, as did the Bushes and #45. The Democrats, however flawed they are (and they are), have been working to increase voting, not turn us into a new apartheid, as the Republicans have.

    The Democrats haven’t promoted global warming denialism. The Republican Party is the only major political party in the world that denies anthropogenic global warming outside of Russia.

    Are they both too business-friendly? Unquestionably. But in case you hadn’t noticed, Democrats are willing to raise taxes on the rich, and take climate action. Should they do more? Of course. But can you equate “we will do some” with “we think it is all a hoax”? No.

    Equating the two is not only a false equivalency, but appears to be encouraging people to give up on voting at all. And yet we see changes happening thanks to younger voters mobilizing to take action, and some of us older voters targeting specific battles to tip the government back the right way, using the same strategy the Republicans used 40 years ago with too much success.

    Are you giving up? Or just promoting a revolution?

    You dare to accuse ME of being a traitor and a coward? Tsk, tsk. Resorting to insults means you have no answer. And given your tendency to project, we know who the REAL traitor and coward is around here.

    Oh, please. The old “well, the other guys are doing it” trope just doesn’t work. Biden isn’t the one playing footsie with Putin. We KNOW #45 has done it for years, we have ex-KGB agents pointing out that they targeted him decades ago, and we have it out of his own mouth!

    The idea that somehow Putin has Joe Biden and Hunter in his picket is utter nonsense. I suggest not wasting our time with it until you have some proof – as we DO have with #45, who frankly should be shot for treason.
