My hopes and dreams?
Freeing my fellow citizens who have become ensnared in cults. The most nefarious one being the Cult of Trump. We are a nation governed by laws, not men. At least we should be.
Tony Alto: “Wes, what’s more important to the country, a president that is a “decent person” (undefined here), or a rat ass like Trump that gets things done for the country?
Not sure how you distinguish between “political and personal baggage” and being “a decent person”?
Can you expand on that?
Define “decent person?” You’re kidding, right. I think the term is pretty well understood by the general public. One thing it isn’t: screwing a stripper while your third wife is in the hospital delivering your kid. Party of family values, my ass.
One of my staff reminded me that Rep. Greene [Q-GA] posted a YouTube video in 2017 in which she made the following claim . . .
”Q is a patriot. He is someone that very much loves his country, and he’s on the same page as us, and he is very pro-Trump.”
If you people remember nothing else, remember my warning about people who refer to themselves as “patriots.”
Greene is the Republican Party.
How did the GOP get here? Columnist Charles Pierce theorized that Reagan fed the party faithful monkey brains in the early 80s and that is when the long, slow descent in to the current madness started. Whenever it started, it’s nothing new. I can remember listening to H. L. Hunt’s Life Line radio show in the 1950s. Hunt advised his listeners to check under the bed for Commies every night. They were everywhere according to him. Fact is, the Republican Party has been cultivating the loonies for a long time. The party leaders lost control of them when the internet came along. Not only did it enable the nutbags to network, it allowed them to recruit.
The rest, as they say, is history.January 31, 2021 at 7:06 pm in reply to: Putting terrible people into the Baseball Hall of Fame #136520
I am ready to offer mediation services (pro bono). Believe it not, we can all get along.
Once everyone comes around to seeing things my way.
I prefer “enlightened progressive” over “Left Wing Radical.”

Jack was always accusing me of being in cahoots with some of his arch enemies on the old board (no need to name names). He is a West Virginia original so I cut him some slack.
Fact is, this humble reporter is in cahoots with no one.January 29, 2021 at 12:13 pm in reply to: Amazon very worried about fraud in regard to mail in ballots #136266
Our friend Jack isn’t exactly a friend. Although we go back a long way to another board he’s more of an acquaintance. Of course, you don’t have friends on these forums. As the old saying goes, if you want a friend on here set up an account for your dog.
Bump . . . Because I’m an American.
“For the KGB, it was a charm offensive. They had collected a lot of information on his personality so they knew who he was personally. The feeling was that he [Trump] was extremely vulnerable intellectually, and psychologically, and he was prone to flattery.
“This is what they exploited. They played the game as if they were immensely impressed by his personality and believed this is the guy who should be the president of the United States one day: it is people like him who could change the world. They fed him these so-called active measures soundbites and it happened. So it was a big achievement for the KGB active measures at the time.” — former KGB officer Yuri ShvetsJanuary 28, 2021 at 11:42 pm in reply to: Amazon very worried about fraud in regard to mail in ballots #136227
Given the right-wing fixation with voter fraud and mail-in voting one would think that at this late date they could provide some, you know, evidence. They haven’t and they won’t and there is a good reason for that. There is none.
As for Amazon, they are opposed to voting by mail because it makes it more difficult for them to intimidate their employees. It’s not all that complicated.
“It’s (sniffle) not fair, Rush.”
I like RetrumpliQanon better.
“Bled for his country” and doesn’t understand the oath he took to defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Something is not computing here.
Another elected official/civil servant trying to rehabilitate his or her reputation by slamming Trump on the way out the door. I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney or Liz Cheney, but they had the courage to point out the wannabe emperor had no clothes while still serving in office.
The modern Republican Party under Trump is the home for snowflakes and cowards.
I’ve noticed this board doesn’t have have any QAnon/3 Percenter/DumbBoyz apologists. One of the benefits of small numbers. Hope it stays that way.
Time is running out to get TrumpCare passed.
Just following orders didn’t work for Goering and fun-loving lads of the Third Reich at Nuremberg. If I were one of Trump’s misfit militia of misguided malcontents I would plead not guilty by reason of temporary insanity. Or permanent. Let’s not quibble over the details.
DC is not going to be a state, but the issue does raise an interesting issue of fairness. Its residents pay taxes yet they are not represented in Congress. That amounts to taxation without representation in my book, but fear not. I have a solution that I think is fair and equitable, one that all of can support.
DC residents should be allowed in Maryland Senatorial and Congressional races. That state is blue so it shouldn’t shift the balance of power significantly. Thoughts?
The revisionist 1/6 history is well underway it seems. I predict it won’t be too long before one of the insurrectionists sues for damages caused by the emotional stress of his arrest.
