    George, you came to that conclusion without looting anyone's home or business, setting fires and rioting, or mob-assaulting anyone. It's almost like because you weren't conditioned throughout your childhood and adult life to embrace victimhood and a massive conspiracy theory that your government, society, and fellow citizens are all plotting against you with racist hearts, you were ably to analyze the facts of the situation and come to a rational conclusion.
    (Note, this man being "cop shit" could also be a rational conclusion, but the decisions to loot, riot, and assault ipso facto cannot be based on rational analyses of this situation - they can only be the conditioned, Pavlovian response to perceived, life-threatening conspiracy theories.

    I can think of at least one in recent memory. But really, have you not been paying attention? They all do that. I'm not saying you shouldn't hold a politician accountable for coming up short in the promises department, but promising shit they have no idea how to deliver is how they all get elected, because so many people are so goddamn stupid and refuse to be skeptical. It's like steroids in athletics. They basically have to do it at this point to have a chance to win.

    Well played, Rippetoe. A tip of the cap.

    I disagree. Cult is very much the appropriate term. Socialism is the parent religion and wokeness is the fundamentalist offshoot cult.

    They require faith in a higher power, subservience, unquestioning loyalty, making mandatory donation of money and service to the faith, disbelief of incredible amounts of contradictory evidence, shunning of the unbelievers, pious virtue signalling, justification of immoral acts committed to spread the faith, justification of spreading the faith by force and imposing it upon others, large scale organization and coordination and 501(c)(3) non profit status.

    Thank you for that post. I agree that everyone should watch all of these.

    What is the murder count at now? How many people has BLM murdered so far?

    How much economic damage and theft? Do we have estimates for that yet? Can the victims sue Black Lives Matter?

    I do. Many people do, but are afraid to say they like him, because they don't want to be attacked or harassed. Many people who like him are censored and shouted down if they are willing to admit it.

    I like him, because he is the only president in my lifetime who has acted with moral courage. He is willing to face down grave personal and reputation threats in order to do what is right for the country. He makes principled decisions, even if it means his detractors will slander or threaten him.

    It's Googleable.

    There is the (previous) low unemployment. And the spectacle of wriggling swamp creatures, as the swamp drains.

    Not just St. Paul, but Trump is also like the Archangel Michael.

    St. Trump, defend us in battle.

    This is what a swamp-creature dragon looks like getting vanquished.

    What really freaks me out are people like my parents, who should know better, who act like he’s some sort of Klan-hood-clad evil Moses riding into town from the wilderness.
    It's like an intervention. Very uncomfortable for all involved.

    What is it about the state of Virginia that makes "fine" people drive their cars into peaceful protestors?
    Of fucking course. The "fine people" bullshit. Again.

    I hope you don't look up from scarfing down the loads of bullshit you're accustomed to intentionally consuming in time to escape The Purge you've invited. The only justice one can hope for, at this point, for the erudite Leftist covens is poetic justice.

    And, really, it couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people. Be sure to renew your subscription to the Gray Lady and try to catch a show on Broadway this evening.

    I can't stand Trump, personally, and I didn't vote for him in 2016. At this point not only will I, but I likely will write-in his name on the rest of the presidential ballots in my natural life as just the biggest "FUCK YOU!" imaginable. That, and it will likely be less of a waste than voting for any of the other shitheads the prevailing parties can scrape off of the bottoms of their shoes.

    Except the recovery seems to be rebounding in an unexpected manner. Which had dems freaking out a week or so back when a dem economist predicted it. The general election scenario that Democrats are dreading - POLITICO

    Weren't they the ones that were saying masks weren't effective, and then changed their minds and said that everyone should wear masks? I guess masks are back to not being helpful if you're not actually sick. What a clownshow.
    Yeah I just saw that today too. I also saw a hospital in my area posted they now have zero covid cases in their hospital, which really is awesome news. On the other hand, my struggling mma gym canít reopen until July 6th still for some reason. Also is worth noting the hospital is in the same city a huge protest occurred in last week, yet still has no covid cases.

    You seem to know a lot about Trump that I don't. I must be missing the obvious.

    And you don't put much stock in "Damascus moments".

    Didn't Obama teach us Hope?
