@Sailor.X I am liking Biden’s victory over Trump. Bare shelves were a problem under Trump, yet I didn’t blame him. Gas prices are set by global supply and demand and I was car free until last year and barely drive my hybrid now. Good riddance to people who won’t get vaccinated. I picked Biden and he won. He got us out of Afghanistan like so many before promised and never did. I got a raise this month and a promotion, so I personally have more money in my pocket. Entry level workers are also getting more pay if you haven’t heard. Stock market and 401k through the roof. Plenty of money in peoples pockets. So other than COVID and things outside of Biden’s control things are doing well considering. Thanks for inquiring!

Genuine dumb, or bad-faith argument on his part?

In either case, I really hope these people don't start giving finger-waving lectures on the virtues of "unity" or "forgiveness" once this is over. All while ignoring their own culpability and the sheer, irreparable damage their partisan ignorance and hypocritical simping for the same Establishment they once claimed to oppose wrecked. Sadly, I fear I'm wrong about that. :(

...I think he was being sarcastic?
Considering I've scene him say the same, or similar, to other posters for rather frivolous reasons that barely make sense, I doubt that was sarcasm.

He's an idiot. It will only continue to get worse when he doesn't know the turmoil going behind the Biden administration.

Honestly, we're all idiots when we worry about what others are up to when what they're up to doesn't directly affect you.

A homeless guy I know said it best: "Tomorrow is something I will worry about tomorrow."

No, but just because it doesn't affect you doesn't mean it has no affect on lots of other people. For example, the Afghanistan Crisis is no skin off my back personally, but I fear for the people trapped in Taliban country and what this means for US foreign policy going forwards. We're not islands living unto ourselves.

That, and you can't go through life always winging it all the time. There are events and responsibilities that require you to plan well in advance, and if your future is so uncertain that you can't be reasonably sure what the next day of all things will bring, maybe your advice needs second-guessing...

Not in my backyard until it affects him at the point of a car jack or home robbery.
He is way more at risk of getting robbed or shot than you or I are. He lives in a car and probably has more cash hidden somewhere in it than you or I would feel comfortable having in our respective wallets.

So? That makes NIMBY even more poignant.

Fuck'em and fuck forgiveness. Everything they tried to do to us, we have to repay ten-fold.

They got the puppet doing a press conference right now. I wonder how many scripted questions he will take before he tries and go off script and the handlers cut the feed.


Edit: A nice little gem already.


What "depends" Mr. "Most fair and secure election ever"? Are you implying the US elections could be the victim of fraud? YOU ARE UNDERMINING DEMOCRACY! Ban this man from all social media!

It seems Harris is not off to a good start this morning.


Main takeaways from this: “Is Biden green lighting Putin to invade Ukraine if he only takes so much territory?” And “is the President suggesting the 2022 midterms will be illegitimate because the ‘voting rights bill’ didn’t pass?”

in other words, Biden keeps shooting himself in the foot and Harris has to kneel down and perform a few favors, again…

"Nooooo! How are you not just going along with our plan to destroy the nation! You are supposed to just follow the party line!"

They can't even convince their own party to go along with this shit. They really have to hammer it through. Explains how desperate they are to kill the election integrity of the nation and the fillerbuster.

The fact the puppet straight up said "it's only legitimate if we win" makes it obvious the talk of Unity was complete nonsense. And yeah his stupid comment about "minor incursion" was idiotic as fuck. It's not something you are suposed to say even if it is the Realpolitik solution to avoid all out war over any minor geopolitical move but for fucks sake Biden you have been hyping this invasion for a entire year now only to suddenly back down?

I guess they really think it's still 2014 and they can just push back. It's not. No one in the USA or NATO is willing to die for Kiev when their own government treats them like cattle and considers the patriotic among them possible terrorists. Putin smells the weakness and he knows it much better than the delusional fuckers in the Pentagon what is going on on the ground. The man is KGB, and his entire foreign policy has been based on surgical precision moves for maximum gains.

It doesn’t help that Biden went on record during the Reagan administration opposing nearly every single foreign policy decision the Reagan admin made.
