  1. Complaining about scum taking my country down the tubes is, "sour grapes"?
  2. Writing about situations that I have personally experienced is "childish"? Whereas, quoting from some search results on the computer, is "conservative".
  3. You actually believe that huh? A country doesn't grow at the rate that China did through capitalism. Investigate my neighbor James Oberweis and his investment company, his Chinese wife his selling of the family business to his siblings his making a fortune by "investing" in China, the proceeds from the sale of the family business his attempts to run for political office as a loyal Republican his re-purchase of the family business with the money he made in China his proclamations of being an American "job creator" after he bought out his siblings his only political victory as being elected an Illinois State Senator his wife's legal residency in Florida his filing his state income taxes in Florida, instead of Illinois (where he is an elected politician) He is everything that a scumbag Republican can be, and oh so proud of it.
  4. China isn't capitalist. It is just owned by foreigners making a quick buck.
  5. Their present system is a group of shell companies run by people with Chinese names, and financed with foreign money. China didn't "grow", without massive infusions of foreign money, most of which has just been "trickled down" from America. Their system is not superior. Their "success" has just been the result of un-American scum transferring the wealth of America to a low wage country. The same type of people who hire illegals in America, instead of spending the money to move their factories to another country.
  6. Get real. China's economy is a bunch of shell companies owned/financed with foreign money, probably mostly dollars. Their COEs have Chinese names, but the directions come from somewhere else. China didn't "grow" through capitalism, it was all "trickle down" money. The American politicians are owned by the oligarchs. You may hear lots of noise to keep the fools happy, but nothing will change.
  7. Obama spend a lot of borrowed dollars to recover from the G. W. Bush caused Great Recession. The Fox "conservatives" ALWAYS mention Obama's spending when Liberals attempt to point out that Trump's economy is based on more spending and lending of borrowed dollars. Granted, many of the regular "conservative" posters here KNOW that Obama's spending was required to reconstruct the economy post-Bush. But, you never really know, by some of their comments, if they really expect that the Great Recession was going to end in 6 months. And, of course, the Fox lie machine pays big $dollars for "bumper sticker" phrases, which misrepresents the truth, which may take two or three paragraphs to explain, into; "Well, Obama spent ……." And then, of course, the asinine lie that Obama "prolonged" the recession. But, does something like; "Spending to recover from the Bush recession", or, "Reconstruction costs from the Bush recession", or anything else REALLY cover the damage that Bush, and Republicans, in general, do to this country?
  8. Have a look at the historical inflation rates by year, and compare them to the dates of wars. Massive inflation is the way that government debt is paid off with cheap money. Wrecks people's retirement plans, of course. Notice that Bush's wars have not been paid off, yet. The doo-doo is getting ready to hit the rotating device. https://www.usinflationcalculator.com/inflation/historical-inflation-rates/
  9. Obama didn't correct the economy. He kicked the can down the road with borrow, spend and lend. Trump's economy is also based on borrow, spend, and lend. A "good" capitalist economy does not need massive infusions of bargain dollars. The only question is, when does it collapse?
  10. Biden will definitely ban sanctuary cities. Immediately, the employers of the illegals will contact their paid politicians, causing the Republicans to attempt to impeach him.
  11. Well, they don't have much else to be proud of!

    How to spot a coward

    Try educating yourself about what the Catholics believe.

    Kind of like "trickle down"?

    How to spot a coward

    This is why abortion was originally outlawed, way back.

    How to spot a coward

    You do realize that the Republicans plan to outlaw ALL forms of birth control, based on the disproportionate influence of the Catholic Church in the Party.

    How to spot a coward

    Actually, it is the; "No Holds Barred Political Forum". And, given the mentality of the lies in government, the expression, "fight fire with fire" might apply.

    Biden is the only hope for beating THE PIG

    The other thing to keep in mind, is that the Red States that have a few dozen residents can still jam up the Congress, so no matter what Democrat gets elected, even especially a woman, nothing will get done.

    Biden is the only hope for beating THE PIG

    I agree, Biden for the win. Given the fact that a stupid old white guy won the Republicans, an old white guy will still probably be the best choice for the Democrats. Obama gave the country a false hope. A false hope that a large number of voters aren't as stupid as they seem. Trump's election proved that they really are. Biden may not be the best for a Liberal philosophy, but a win is still better for the country.

    Calling fellow party members out

    Tories need to be told what to do. Incompatible with democracy.

    Calling fellow party members out

    Do you think that I am wrong? In the blue city of Chicago, on the CBS evening news, the video showed the U. S. Senators from Illinois saying; "REPLACE ICE". Twenty seconds later, the reporter said, that the Senators had said; "ELIMINATE ICE". The media rules, you fools.

    Calling fellow party members out

    And if the members of both parties, told about 5% of their weirdo members to go pound sand, so the media wouldn't have any weirdos to focus on, they would find out that most of us are on the same page.

    Calling fellow party members out

    The media has told the "right" and the "left" that AOC is the head of the Democratic Party. And how many morons, ON BOTH SIDES, actually accept that as the truth?

    Calling fellow party members out

    How the hell would any of you know what the "left", or the "right" think? The corporations own the media. The corporations tell the "right" what the "left" thinks. The corporations tell the "left" what the "right" thinks. That is the way they make money. And, it is turning into a "religious" environment. The "right" actually believes what the media tells them to believe, just like the "left" believes what the media tells them. We lost this country many years ago.
  24. You know, in every piece of fuzzy information, there might be a kernel of truth. So, who did the research declaring that the birth control pill does not cause abortions? The drug companies that sell them? Years ago, there was an article about a drug company scientist telling Antonin Scalia that if it didn't work like a contraceptive, that it would cause an abortion. That article has probably been purged by the "religious" right. And, supposedly when Bush proposed to privatize some of Social Security, the Republican Speaker of the House refused to bring the proposal to the floor, BECAUSE IT WAS TOO EXPENSIVE.
  25. The concept of strategic "fuzzy" information should also be considered. I watched the CBS evening news one night. The two senators from Illinois were on the video, saying; "ICE should be REPLACED." Apparently, the CBS corporate propaganda minister had immediately taken control, so the announcer reported; "The senators said that ICE should be ELIMINATED." I was amazed that the announcer could read the lie with a straight face within 20 seconds of the recording of what the senators had actually said. So, possibly, questions should be asked about; "Will the public object to the Republicans outlawing the birth control pill? It causes abortions some of the time, you know." and, "How much will the Republicans pay back of your Social Security money, when the eliminate the program? 5 cents of every dollar that you paid in?" Fuzzy information is simply taking the idea to the extreme, something that Republicans ALWAYS DO, but Democrats SELDOM DO.
