I peruse this site from time to time just to chuckle at the whiney, sniveling, Trump Derangement Syndrome infected tool bags who live in their own little world. Their newest concept, which seems to be embraced by many on there, is that Trump has now started a war with Iran solely for both political gain and to distract from impeachment.
These ass clowns really are sick and twisted. It's like they have lost all grasp of reality.
Feel free to use this post to link to some of their more humorous offerings over there...
I remember reading that site 25 years ago. I will never forget the time some idiot wrote that "republicanism is 100 times worse than Nazism.". Not just plain worse than Nazism but 100x worse. I could not believe anyone could genuinely write such nonsense. That was the last time I ever went to that site.
LOL! This basically was the opening thought from Rush today. He stated that he has revised his estimate of Twatter; it's becoming very useful, as it's the medium the left is using for exposing to the world EXACTLY who they are.
Well, just adding another one of my favorite entertainers to the "no more" list. Why cant they just keep their mouths shut and do what they get paid to do? Jim Carrey was the last addition along with Stallone and Dickhead DeNiro. If this keeps up I'll be left watching looney tunes. Too bad. I liked Cusak for many many years.
Trump's incompetence is a real problem — but decades of right-wing ideology have also made this crisis worse
...... But it's also important to understand that the larger Republican Party, even without Trump, is also to blame for what looks to be a serious public health crisis. Right-wing ideology, often marketed as "rugged individualism" but perhaps better understood as an aversion to the very concept of a common good, is one major reason why the U.S. government, hamstrung for decades by Republican power, isn't better equipped to handle a crisis.
This isn't just a Trump problem. This is a widespread Republican problem. For decades, GOP strategy has been consistent: Whenever they get power, they slash regulations and gut spending, with the goal of making government less effective. This is a deliberate strategy to make the public broadly distrustful of government, and therefore increasingly open to shifting more and more power to the wealthy individuals who control the private sector.
This ideological commitment to an every-man-for-himself ideology, which is terrible in any circumstances, is exposed as particularly dreadful in the face of a pandemic. Disease is a reminder that humans are a herd species, wholly dependent on each other for survival, and that government must be a way to formally organize that joint survival pattern. It's not some villain in a racism-inflected right-wing morality fable about the importance of "personal responsibility."
Simply put, we need our government to be able to protect us from disease. Republicans have spent years tearing it down, and even in a crisis are incapable of accepting that "small government" is not always a good thing.
