        No, the pandemic ended at noon today. First everyone said it would be over Nov. 3. Then everyone said Dec 10, then Jan 6. So now we’re at the last possible date so I guess the “plandemic” is officially over?

        But the country is gonna be saved by someone who has been in government for 50 years and 15 days! I’m sure he had no hand in creating the problems that plagued us the last five decades.

          We’ve certainly had a lot of problems over the last five decades. But things are also pretty great. We have a standard of living that only a small percentage of societies currently have worldwide and we’re light-years above where we were 50 years ago. This notion that the country is falling apart and we have to do radical things to blow up the system and prevent it is going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy if people keep chasing it.

            I’m in complete agreement. I was no fan of Trump, but I also strongly believe that people who have spent literally half a century off the public dime are not the best choices to lead the country.

            We are the envy of the world (even to those who don’t necessarily like us) and it’s critical to ensure individual liberties so that this experiment continues.

                  And yet you debate endlessly with anyone whose opinion differs from yours – calling them stupid, ignorant, and other choice words that don’t encourage true debate. Therefore, you decide what opinions are true or not. You decide what is worth debate or not. Sounds like the same kind of narcissism you accuse former presidents of.

You don’t know what other presidents have done, but you definitely know that whatever they did, it wasn’t worse than Trump. That kind of righteous indignation practically requires ignorance. Because if you knew what past presidents had done (both Democrats and Republicans) you would understand that Trump is just another asshole in a long line of assholes. Better than some. Worse than others.

                • Context is always important. If Trump’s mean tweets have caused you to believe that he’s the worst president in history, then you are quite ignorant of American history. American presidents have ordered illegal assassinations of foreign leaders as well as coups for regime change. They have spied on domestic political enemies. They have imprisoned journalists. FDR sent 120k American citizens to concentration camps. Not illegal immigrants temporarily detained while officials rule on their status. American citizens indefinitely held because they were Asian. I could go on. Books have been written on corruption that goes well beyond anything Trump did.

                  But insisting that Trump is the worst just trivializes the actual bad things. You’re concluding that mean tweets is worse than sending people to concentration camps based on their race. You become a parody.

            He was recruited by Sheldon Feldon, who jumped ship from aubrun to ut. Big Kat transferred to follow Sheldon, and about the time he announced Sheldon got shit-canned. According to Got Sr.’s allegedly reliable source Sheldon was one of the bag handlers at…You guessed it…The McDonalds lunch table!

    I guess Kelly Lofler’s dream of owning an Atlanta sports team has ended along with her Georgia political career. I assume her dream now is to move to another state where she can run for office. Oh, and own a sports team.

          If you truly do not let any predetermined biases affect your thoughts and decisions then I applaud you. It is very difficult to do. That’s why science relies on well designed, blinded, reproducible studies to arrive at the “truth”. Even then, unintentional bias can creep in.

    No snark when I say:

    Inauguration Day is officially a celebration day in my home from now on.

    For 50+ years, all I have known is people – both sides – complaining about our country and every thing wrong with it. 3 days a year we celebrated our country, and 362 we let our radios and TVs tell us how it was going to hell in a hand basket.

    Historically speaking, a day like this is a damn miracle. And we absolutely have taken it for granted.

    Celebrate it. No matter how you voted.

Russians hacking the 2016 election is a given. Irregularities in 2020 when a candidate who didn’t campaign won more votes than ever despite performing more poorly in every bellweather county but one and doing worse among minority voters than the candidate who lost in 2016 is a conspiracy. Why? Because it’s our side! That’s why!

              Statistical irregularities are nonsense. Adding thousands of ballots days after the polls close is fine. Millions of voters may not have confidence in elections, but why should we give a damn? Shut up proles! The truth is what we leftists say it is. Russians hacked the 2016 election. Do we have evidence for that claim? Of course not. Do we need it? Of course not.

            Had it been up to me China wouldn’t have been given MFN status without significant human rights concessions.

            We trusted an ideology that said that freedom would follow capitalism as naturally as spring follows winter. It didn’t happen. They got rich, but they didn’t get free.

            The right doesn’t own that alone but it was the right, Nixon and then Bush 41, who really opened up the doors to China’s rise to economic and military prominence.

            Imho, we need to be willing to suffer whatever economic hardships may befall us in making sure that China, and the rest of the world, understands the economic rewards of free societies will not be used to enrich anti-democratic tyrants anywhere and everywhere.

            We need a similar plan to confront China to the one George Kennan put together to confront and defeat the USSR.

  38. Is this your homework Larry?

    Trump is a conundrum that I’ve spent too long analyzing. His greatest achievement was transforming the Republican party into his image. He managed to grasp the anger of the middle class American people and create a tidal wave populist movement. Even though he lost the election, he made gains with his base of white working-class voters and inner-city Black Americans and Latino minorities. Any Republican running for office will still have to get his endorsement or mention his name (at least for the next few years).

    If he wasn’t a hyper-narcissist, arrogant, sociopath he could have surrounded himself with people who had the ability and knowhow to actually achieve solutions. His obsession on ultimate loyalty, golfing during a pandemic, and Twitter pissing matches cost him the election. A friend of mine stated the other day, “Trump won the Twitter battle, but lost the war.” If the die-hards that stormed the Capitol would step back and re-group, they would recognize that even though they feel defeated in terms of the election, Trump has proven that someone willing to hear their opinion and listen to their grievances can get elected.

    For context, I am not Trump supporter and donated to the Sanders campaign, but I will give credit where it’s due. Trump did not increase our military presence overseas during his term (reducing it), he did not start or expand a war, he commuted the sentences of many low level drug offenders such as Alice Marie Johnson:

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-commutes-sentence-grandmother-serving-life-drug-charges-after-kim-n880291

    And a friend of mine:

    https://fox17.com/news/local/president-trump-pardons-nashville-businessman

    He made moves to decentralize the US government (such as moving the BLM agency from DC to Colorado) and he changed the US government’s hiring practice giving more priority to an applicant’s job skills over a college degree (the government being the nation’s largest employer).

    Biden being President won’t affect me personally or financially and I’ll keep on trucking like normal. While I consider Trump a Presidential failure, for good or for bad, he set this country on a new path that won’t change anytime soon.

    The Proud Boys’ anger toward Mr. Trump has heightened after he did nothing to help those in the group who face legal action for the Capitol violence. On Wednesday, a Proud Boy leader, Joseph Biggs, 37, was arrested in Florida and charged with unlawful entry and corruptly obstructing an official proceeding in the riot. At least four other members of the group also face charges stemming from the attack.
