Re: 2024 Elections
Phat opines:
What I fear more than Biden is the VP that will come in on his coattails. We need sane traditional values...not extremism.
Phat! NAME ONE (1) Extremist thing about Kamela Harris!!
I double-dog DARE TOU!
She's moderate center-of-the-road, holding sane traditional values. Don't believe any more fucking LIES from Right-Wing Youtubes!!!!
Infact, I double-dog DARE you to post any Dem extremist values. Including Bernie and AOC!

Head and shoulders above the 20-foot deep cesspool under the outhouse is still full of shit, Phat.
The GOP is a criminal organization who wants you to march in their formation or DIE.
here is an article by Dr. Joanne Topol:
================================================================
Joanne Topol
Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics, California Institute of Technology (Caltech)Updated Jun 21
Why do the Democrats fear the Republicans winning?
If the Republicans win in 2022 and 2024, the 240 year American experiment in democracy will be over, and everything once viewed as exceptional or admirable about the United States will no longer exist. I am in no way being hyperbolic; every respectable scholar or historian (from across the political spectrum) who studies authoritarian regimes has warned us that this country is displaying all the usual signs of a failing democracy!! And the cause is today’s breathtakingly depraved Republican Party!
To be clear, today’s GOP is the most corrupt, dishonest, selfish, anti-knowledge political party in modern history. If a GOP candidate wants to win a Republican primary, they have no choice but to spew proven lies and conspiracy theories—most notably, Trump’s big lie that he won the 2020 election!! Their entire agenda is about 1) doing whatever they can to “own the libs” and 2) doing whatever they can to turn this country into a white, Christian nation. They are a bunch of hateful, vindictive racists who will happily destroy the country as long as it allows them to remain in power.
I must admit, until Trump came along, I never imagined that those freedom-loving, Constitution carrying, law and order advocates would be so immune to feeling shame. Trump taught them that as long as they successfully brainwash their followers with an endless stream of disinformation, they need not hide their bigotry or their mind-numbing hypocrisy. He showed them that they can lie and cheat all they want without suffering any consequences. So now there is nothing too morally depraved or blatantly hypocritical for them to say or do.
They also know that they do not represent the views of the majority of Americans, so their only path to victory is to destroy our democratic institutions and promote, instead, an authoritarian system of government. They would be perfectly happy if Trump returned to the White House and behaved just like his BFF Putin. They are so delusional that they actually believe that if Trump follows his dream to turn this country into a corrupt, kleptocratic autocracy—their freedoms will remain intact or even expand.
There is NO moral or ethical justification for being a member of today’s Republican Party. Period!!

Re: The News About Biden and Trump
As has been said elsewhere, if one position is based on fact and the other contrary position is based on innuendo,
there is no middle position where both sides can meet, there is no compromise.
One side is correct, the other is just lies.

Re: more Trump shit
a reposted article alerted to from a FB friend:
The indictment may or may not lead to a conviction. But the facts it lays out show that Trump is utterly unfit for high office.

Re: Wait A Minute...
Phat blurts out:
in my mind the pendulum swung from too far right to too far Left.
Phuq that.
NAME ONE REAL, EXISTENT THING THAT IS TOO FAR LEFT!!!
Jeez, we're pinned so far against the Right wing cliff that taking any old center position is now considered too far to the left.
Your fascist brain is ruling you.
At the rate you're going pretty soon the best thing you can do is put a gun to your head.

Re: The Emperor Has No Clothes
Phat writes
..."I knew that Nixon was a crook only after Watergate exposed him"...
well, where were you in the case of Joe McCarthy and Nixon's focus on Horatio Alger Hiss?
Here's a part of a WAPO post written
By Robert D. Novak, April 28, 1994:
"Among the deluge of words following his death, there was only passing mention of the seminal event in Richard M. Nixon's half-century political career: the Hiss case.
Had it not been for the young congressman from Southern California, Alger Hiss likely would have dodged exposure as a Soviet espionage agent. That exposure afforded Nixon rapid escape from obscurity onto the national stage. Moreover, The Case froze Nixon forever as the enemy of the left and the champion of the right, no matter how much he later deviated from those stereotypes.
In fact, Nixon was no conservative in either domestic or foreign policy. His inability to appease the implacable hostility of liberals and the steadfast loyalty to him by conservatives can be traced to his anti-communist image forged by that long-ago struggle."
i was with Pete Seeger and the Weavers, blacklisted by McCarthy's goons.

Biden's speech at Valley Forge was awesome and changed my opinion of him for the better. His writing was centered around George Washington's "Sacred Cause".

come on, watch the real Joe Biden, not the version told on media.
we are in good shape with Biden. all we have have to do is recognize the greatness in the man instead of looking for conformations of your biased version.
