Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, your President?

I quoted Trump clearly and directly saying that he's deliberately blocking funding for the Post Office in order to make it impossible to implement universal mail-in balloting during the pandemic and that's your response. Wow. You're worse than Abe. He may be ignorant, but at least he's sincere. What...

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, your President?

“Now they need that money in order to make the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots... Now, if we don’t make a deal, that means they don’t get the money. That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting, they just can’t have it.” ~ Donald Trump, saying the...

Re: Regarding universal healthcare...

I know, right? It's like "I'm trying to cling to the illusion of normalcy and hide behind false equivalencies so that I don't have to admit that I'm supporting the rise of authoritarianism in America" and Ed just keeps posting evidence of my complicity! Why can't he see that everything is subjective...

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, your President?

Meantime, your President is in the process of defunding the Post Office in order to make it more difficult for people to vote against him.

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, your President?

Nice to see some leadership coming from the potential President. Pity the current President could never pull that off. Sad!

Re: Oh. My. God.

Oh, I get it. Your thinking is not comlex. You believe that Trump is the lesser of two evils and you hold to that position by ignoring, downplaying, and rationalizing all evidence to the contrary.

Re: Oh. My. God.

I appreciate everybody wanting to look out for me, but posting an average of 1.23 times per day really doesn't take much time. Also, I give up. You're clearly 100% committed to supporting a conman, so bully for you, I guess. The lesser of two evils thing is utter and complete [nonsense], but whateve...

Re: Oh. My. God.

Rick, the difference between me and a fundamentalist is that you could change my mind by presenting evidence in support of your position. You've always held that you're under no obligation to back up any of your statements but now here you are, having failed utterly to support your own positions, cl...

Re: Oh. My. God.

And like I said, no. The facts are what actually happened . You're acting like everything is some unknowable he-said, she-said, when in reality it's usually he-said so we rolled the tape/read the document/checked the records/read the Constitution and it turns out he was lying/exaggerating/taking cre...

Re: Oh. My. God.

Both definitions talk about the same thing - pieces of verifiable information. There's no definition of "fact" that includes "which may or may not be true." For example, to hear Trump tell it, the facts are that the do-nothing Democrats refused to negotiate a Covid relief bill so he had to step in a...

Re: Oh. My. God.

We all have the same facts. No, we don't. People who read a variety of high quality news sources have far more facts than people in a partisan news bubble, and people who draw conclusions from a wide array of data tend to make better decisions. People who are better informed are also better positio...

Re: Oh. My. God.

Seems to me today there is your "news" and their "news". Who's news is really news? How do you decide? Sometimes it seems that way, but that's not reality. In reality the facts are the facts, period. I do my best to get to the facts by cross checking multiple sources. I'm more inclined to take a so...
