    Five minutes of hate news

    You're also forgetting the LGB who disassociated themselves from the movement a long time ago, once it became clear how it wanted to treat people now that it had power; the one's who's philosophical roots were more "I just want to be left alone, and not have to worry about getting metaphorically...

    Trump Post Election News.

    Which would be consistent with one of Trump's biggest flaw from his term in office; his inability to put together a competent staff, and one that isn't plotting to undermine him at every turn. It's even possible they did know who Fuentes was, but intentionally didn't tell Trump.

    And that's fine; you'll note I've not even mentioned the weapons and equipment we've been giving them. Just the money. Particularly, the twenty billion dollars that went missing. What do you even think accountability would cost, exactly? It's shouldn't be that hard to keep track of where our...

    Fair enough; I'm just sick of this whole conflict sucking the intelligence out of otherwise reasonable people, and turning them into NPCs virtue signaling how much they hate Russia. Not that they don't deserve the hate, but it's obvious hating them is the only thing they care about.

    I think that missing twenty billion might have helped with that, but as you said; what do I know about war? Clearly, money must not be as important in fighting one as I had thought. In which case though; why are we giving give it to them in the first place? And I've been trying to make you...

    You're not wrong; I never did support Ukraine's right to exist. Not after the coup at least; because I never saw the new government as Ukraine. That said though, this and that are different things. I may not support Ukraine's illegitimate government, but I sure as hell support the average...

    How exactly would accounting for where all the money goes prevent us from giving aid to Ukraine? As Captain X said, they're not mutually exclusive things; so stop acting like they are, and stop brushing aside twenty billion unaccounted for dollars like it doesn't matter.

    How do you propose to do that, exactly? Just throw money in Ukraine's general direction, and hope it gets to where it's supposed to go? You're essentially arguing "we need to do something; this is something, so we need to do this!", irrespective of the efficacy of whatever "this" is. Let me...

    How the heck is a war supposed to purge corruption? Wars are a breeding ground for it; and so far, I've seen nothing to suggest that Ukraine is an exception to the rule. Moreover, if you actually give a crap about helping Ukraine drive Russia out of it's borders, accountability should be your...

    In other words, it would be nice to have accountability, but it's not a deal breaker for you; and anyone who disagrees is one of "them".

    And yet when Rand Paul objected to there not being any sort of oversight on where the money was going, he was denounced as a traitor by almost everyone on both sides of the aisle. He even got put on an official list (alongside Tulsi Gabbard and others) the Ukraine government has made of Russian...

    We tried to warn everyone, but no; we were just Russian sympathizers spreading Russian propaganda.

    Technology Elon Musk: The Worlds Richest Man

    That's another issue you have; your tendency to slander people whenever they criticize or disagree with you in any way. Case in point; painting me as a Musk fanboy, despite the fact that you know I'm not one (unless your reading comprehension and memory is so lacking, it's a wonder you're able...

    Technology Elon Musk: The Worlds Richest Man

    When your opinion involves wanting to boil people in their own urine, people tend to react poorly. That's your problem; you've got no sense of tact, and tend to lash out at the drop of a hat. I mean, take me for example; I agree that many of Elon Musk's products are overhyped and not nearly as...
