Tired of ignorant conservatives

Recommended Posts

Has it occurred to anyone that the whole country is essentially being taken hostage by about 35-40% of idiots who will support Trump no matter what? Republican senators in the Impeachment trial are acting like morons and keeping their ears closed because their constituencies aren't making them pay attention. Again, it goes back to one point: Trumptards are destroying our country.

They are idiots and we have even more idiots in NHB but the reality is McConnell has lost his majority ti block witnesses.

What's NHB? And is that true about the majority? I sure hope- that would be incredible.

 

NHB is No Holds Barred forum.  Very little of merit happens there. It's about people insulting each other.  As I recall, they're fond of "shît-stain" as an insult.

Tired of ignorance? Yes. 

The way I look at it, politicians push misinformation in the effort to both divide, and also to keep voter turnout low. Meanwhile, big money interests has controlled the politics through and through. Trade law legislation is hush hush, designed to benefit the corporation and not to benefit the US worker, nor the US consumer. 

Health care costs have skyrocketed here in the US, while the costs growth has been much much slower in many other nations. Why is that?

I think you answered your question beforehand, and Mitch McConnell obviously orchestrated everything to try and fool people during this sham. But since 1980 when the country got sold on unfettered unregulated pure capitalism they didn't know or were too naive to understand exploitation was one of the symptoms of unaccountable free markets. Unions are going to be the remedy along with leaders who understand how to regulate and create a better environment for people.

And they call us, people like us who support un-rigging a system that is corrupt, leftist radicals. Back in 2016, when the Senate was controlled by Republicans, they actually passed 

a decent Immigration plan, but the house, which was far right-wing radical at the time, the house that never passed anything, or never could have, was all hyped up about one thing,

investigating Benghazi, or the IRS scandal that they said was overly and unfairly critical about 501c3's that they stated the IRS was in fact politically motivated towards investigating only the right, and not enough 501c3's that were promoting, what they called the leftist radicals were being investigated by the IRS, they cried out foul play, it's not right, they are (the IRS) not being fair... As if, if you rightfully investigate one criminal on the right, without also investigating at the same time one of the left, that's unfair, and leaves the whole world of justice completely out of balance / like the whole world is actually kind of flat mottled non-real world we know argument / except that it's not real.

And of course in doing so, the right, like they always have been doing so, countered that the IRS is corrupted, and then, their argument was to reduce the IRS, its capabilities to monitor corruption,  An IRS BTW, which already did not have the wherewithal to actually investigate the real criminals, the oligarchs. 

Look, it's well known that Donald Trump is and always has been a "white collar", thief - criminal. It's also well known, in the Justice Department, that most, almost all, "white collar", theft / criminality in the US, and all around the world,

goes on, without any one going to jail. You don't go to jail for bilking the American people - that just never happens, and it's Just, no big secret. Trump knows this, after all.

Trump knows nothing if not this. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and he has practiced white collar crime all his adult life.

It is absolutely dreadfully disgusting, and people should be in fear. You know, all the Republican Fear campaigns over the years, well they brought us all to this point.

I remember when I was a kid one morning and it snowed really hard and I woke up like 4 AM just hoping that we would have a snow day. That was the day Jimmy Carter's plan to covertly save 52 US hostages in Iran failed due to mechanical issues with the helicopters which lifted off from the US Naval aircraft, the Nimitz. 

I remember it like it was yesterday, except it doesn't snow in April much anymore. "Operation Eagle Claw", this was before CNN or any of the cable News memes. 

I don't blame Reagan, I blame a lot of things, not just one person, like Reagan.
