I don’t watch CNN. I don’t know anything about the DNC. I have no cult leader. I read. I watch events, though not on video. False equivalence and projection has brought you to where you are, Robin. But don’t assume such equivalencies are actually equivalent, and please stop projecting. It’s just silly and shows a lack of critical thinking.
Uh, not even close.
He’s not my favorite candidate, but he did a good enough job running NYC to get elected twice, and then forced a rule change and got elected a third time. In what might well be the bluest city in the country.
You can’t “steal” from someone by overcharging them in the open market. There is agency involved in that choice, you know. If his products and or services were overpriced, then you don’t have to purchase them. That’s how markets work. If there’s no other choice for what you want, then you’ll pay the price. It’s not as though Wall Streeters are being taken advantage of, you know.
Bloomberg may have a big ego, but he’s rational and not psychopathic. I never thought those two character traits would be sufficient for the presidency, but now, I’d gladly take a rational, mostly normal billionaire over a pathological liar and psychopath.
Yup. I started calling and writing Cory Gardner and his staff in November 2016. I have generally tried to provoke shame in the hearts of his interns. They have to listen because of the Constitutional right to,petition the government. But they don’t like being called to task about their Immorality and destruction of American aspirational ethics. I think I’ll call again today.
Spoken like someone who never reads actual journalism. Except for on the opinion pieces, I defy you to show where the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, NPR, or Scientific American fail to expose “real government corruption” and support “big government power structures.”
You can’t do it because your premise is not only faulty, but your sources of information are biased, you powers of discernment are severely compromised, and, given your obvious lack of education, perhaps you are simply unable to comprehend the vocabulary they use.
But you’ve been propagandized and swallow right wing lies hook, line, and sinker. Of course the psychopath “loves the undereducated,” because “they’re so loyal.” But that loyalty is because they are so easily manipulated. Just as you are. Uncritical. Unthinking. Willfully ignorant and celebrating the fact of that ignorance.
You have become the easiest target in the world for the propaganda because you’ve lost whatever critical thinking skills you may have once had. Or more likely, never had. You’re prone to outlandish conspiracy theories about this and that. Scared of the “deep state.” Scared of brown people. Scared of competence and expertise. Afraid of the facts, and so feel compelled to declare facts as “fake news.”
In short, you’ve been putty in the psychopath’s hands. Clay for him to mold in his image as he spews forth thousands of lies. Apt to project your insecurities and fears onto others. A tool of the fascist and authoritarian impulse of a deeply mentally ill cult leader.
And through it all, you think you’re enlightened.
Very typical 3rd grader response, pudding. Ohhhh, that hurts!
Typical also of the psychopath’s cult members. No refutation. No facts. No reasoned arguments. Just bluster, gaslighting, and idiotic taunting.
It’s really sad, but by putting more public resources into early childhood education, we could rid ourselves of much of the easy gullibility of many cultists, whether Scientologists or supporters of the psychopath.
Lordy, lordy, imagine investigating criminal and traitorous behavior.
Whatever is the world coming to?
I’m not religious, but I pray you’re right, Baba.
I’ve never been particularly political, but since 2016, I have called and written my regressive “Senator” on average 2-3 times a week. Even though I disapprove of the legalized bribery call American campaign finance, I plan on contributing $25-30k to Democratic candidates in 2020. I’ve never given a penny in the past.
The real question is whether a sufficient number of civilized Americans, real Americans, patriotic Americans will stand up to this menace. Just how many willfully ignorant traitors and cult members are there in the voting population? If 2018 is any indication, Baba, you may be right. I sure hope so.
There’s no conservative credentials to lose. They lost every shred of credibility in the rabid support for a psychopathic malignant narcissist cult leader. These are no longer “conservatives.” They are cultists.
Guess the regressives don’t know the word exculpate, huh? Or they are defending the indefensible.
It says as the foundation of American aspirational morality comes crashing down.
As I recall, the last election was a justified rebuke of your type. Scores of regressives lost their seats in the House. Somewhere around 40 regressives have quit the Congress rather than work with the psychopath. Recently, the entire Virginia legislature and the governor’s seat both turned blue. Pennsylvania and North Carolina courts have undone the regressive gerrymandering. Multiple members of the psychopath’s campaign team are in jail. The psychopath was forced to repay millions of dollars when his “charity” was proven to be a fraud. The psychopath has lost all the court cases regarding his tax returns—which likely show him as not all that wealthy, and being in hock to a bunch of Russian oligarchs in a wide ranging money laundering scheme.
So there’s hope our system won’t collapse entirely. I hope you’re plenty wealthy, pudding. You’ll need a lot money to stay safe and fed as American ethical and moral values and bonds are weakened and torn apart.
