For help on how to follow a comic title,
In response to your first paragraph, yes, yes they are. Constantly. They work on that every moment of every day. I am certain that many many complaints have been issued for my meanderings, baseless, because they are only offensive to the basest of the base.
Yet I will admit, I spend a great deal of time editing what I say here, probably more time than in writing it. It has a good deal of a chilling effect, knowing that the right is trying, every moment of every day, to silence the opposition while crying out about the First Amendment every other second.
They’ve ALWAYS done this. And they’ve ALWAYS approved of it. ALWAYS, they work to silence liberal voices, because liberal voices tell the truth, while they have only their lies and distortions of fact.
They weep daily over the deletion of their fake news articles, but cheer mightily over the removal of any commentator or news figure damned as “liberal”. There is no word repulsive enough to describe such behavior, hypocrite is a pale shadow of their actual behavior.
Here, have a bit of their “stuff” from my youth. Which was nothing but an attempt to silence others right to political speech.
Wouldn’t you LOVE to have an FBI investigation of every candidate, with results mandated to be released to the public, no redaction permitted?
They believed a transplant from the NorthEast was a Texan. They’ll swallow anything as long as it’s promoted by FAUX.
Which is why we’ll most likely see youth paired with older for the position. Biden could state that he’ll step down in four years and the VP running would have a tremendous advantage at that time. Could lead to Democratic Party domination for quite a while.
Countdown to an avoidable disaster, promoted by lies and deception. Pretty much the Trumpian party of Great Britain.
The right in the USA supported Brexit, Trump especially. Wonder if they’ll be boasting soon about “see, it worked, their national GDP has been reduced by 20%!” SUCCESS!
Oh, I freely admit, I’ve never met a libertarian yet who wouldn’t toss over their philosophy for some advantage in the market. But Ayn Rand didn’t hesitate to do the same.
The thing is, Libertarianism is a philosophy of rationalization, and you can rationalize ANYTHING, especially if you start with the premise “rules are bad and anti freedom”.
Libertarians are just the modern version of barbarians, who have no rules save might makes right. They just wrapped it up in pretty paper so the public would swallow it without thinking too much.
If you had to choose, would you choose to allow offshore drilling, or would you choose to allow plastic to continue to accumulate in the ocean?
Myself, I’d choose to continue the drilling, because the plastic is going to be around a lot longer.
The GOP did not care, it excited the base and that was all that mattered.
Wonder? They know. They know….
Better find something else to brag about, Ramirez, and fast. The economy is showing more cracks than Ivanka’s makeup.
OTOH, run on the GREAT ECONOMY. Sounds like a brilliant idea to me. GO FOR IT!
DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT!
