Re: The Official "Making America Great Again" Thread

I count my blessings in living in the most open, least discriminatory society on the face of the earth. It is the society that allows for more success and prosperity than any other. The exception to this are those who use government support for their sole or primary financial support for more than s...

Re: Cancel Culture thread

Cancel Culture has French Revolution feel to it with White Males being substituted for Aristocracy by those protesting. If this country had the issues that 18th century France had, then it would seem to be justified. That is not to say that we don't have issues, but that they are not comparable to t...

Re: Cancel Culture thread

Yeah, give Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William, and Loudon counties and the city of Alexandria to DC (all voted 55%-75% Clinton). Make DC a state. Would = 2 more donk senate seats. VA minus NOVA would make VA solid red again, would = 2 more conk senate seats. I would respect any decision by the rest...

It makes me wonder if Trip is still canvassing for the DNC. History and proven that the Donk Party was the party of the Confederacy, the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, etc. I probably won't canvas for or donate to the DNC this cycle as I don't support the (likely) national or Virginia candidates, alth...

Re: Cancel Culture thread

Simple question, how can we atone for our past and move ahead if we erase it.

I’m in favor of paying each former slave $1MM in reparations.

Coronavirus COVID-19

Big difference in dying with Covid than from Covid. Also, have to think that 40 million out of work is playing a role in frustration leading to riots vs protests. Fertile field for those funding changing of legitimate and needed protests into something else. Can’t wait until enhancements to unemploy...

Re: Dem VP Candidates

I have been reading that Biden hopes to pick a VP by the first of August which seems a bit late to me. One would think that having two people on the campaign trail drumming up support early would help out more so than waiting till later. The first of August is when his basement remodel into 2 campa...

Re: Dem VP Candidates

The Dems will invoke the 25th Amendment on Biden before his term is over, if he doesn't die first. Optimally they'll wait 2 years, until his term doesn't count against the VP taking over, but does give her the advantage of running as an incumbent and be able to serve 2 full terms of her own.

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

I'm hoping that NY's Governator is criminally charged for forcing COVID-19 patients to be integrated with the most vulnerable population in nursing facilities. It smacks of a move to eradicate the older population by pathogen and forced exposure to the virus by a despicable political hack.
