I don't recall outrage when retired generals spoke out at Trump et al

even the active duty ones were heroes for their outspokeness

remember Milley apologizing for being seen with Trump in front of the church?

House of Representatives:  Democrat-run
US Senate:  Democrat-run
White House:  Democrat
All cabinet agencies therefore: Democrat-run
Policies of the country:  Democrat
Economy:  somewhere between disarray and crisis
Americans who think country is on the right track:  13% per NYT today

Right.  It is second level thinking to connect dismal results with the policies that go with Democrat rhetoric.  To connect "we're only raising taxes on the rich" with "my real wages are falling".

Nobody noticed when solar and wind subsidies and mandates caused electricity prices to double, but $100 to fill your tank or you can't go to work or drive your kids, while you hear them declare war on the producers?
Now they've hit a nerve.

We saw empty shelves in pictures in the Soviet Union and Venezuela.  Never connected it to 'liberal' rhetoric and policies at home.

"It can't happen here."

Then it happens.

Saying "we warned you" doesn't help.  Just celebrate each person seeing just a little light.

Strange how the really smart policies of the left always fail because of bad leadership.

I wonder why the list of dem leaders omits the first minority female Vice President in US History. Why so racist and misogynist, Nation Magazine?

dems know their base
« Reply #1760 on: July 28, 2022, 08:18:31 AM »
this is just so astonishing

yet ask them the buzz dem stuff -

do you want free abortions
free college
should we tax the rich
are you against discrimination of non white hetero people
should we allow all illegals here who are working or have family members born here stay
should everyone be allowed to vote

and most would give immediate yes to all the above without really even knowing what they are talking about.

Cognitive Dissonance of the Left, Dems fighting Dems

Minneapolis Mayor versus Minneapolis Congresswoman:

Update:  Adding this video, Mayor Frey calls out Omar - after she won her primary:
https://www.fox9.com/news/minnesota-primary-election-results-congressional-district-5
Scroll down to 3rd news video on the page. 



If the inept Mpls mayor is better or worse for the city than Rep Ilhan (not-)Omar, I hadn't noticed.

Minneapolis is actually run by a 13 person elected politburo Katie Pavlich calls the City Clowncil.  The current mix is 13-0 Leftists, including Keith Ellison's son:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremiah_Ellison
representative of my North Mpls district.

Maher
« Reply #1770 on: August 27, 2022, 10:25:26 AM »
watched the end of it last night on cable

he had obnoxious Meathead and Koblacher on as guests

he did stick it to them at times
when he kept asking them to at least appreciate the pro life people concerns
about abortion being MURDER! and that is how they use

then the two libs of course start bring up straw man answers to evade the truth . TRUE obnoxious never wrong closed minded Democrat Libs.

The Maher defines "straw man " and brings out a straw man to show them the stupidity of their answers

Of course the both ended the show pushing the Dem partisan line .

I do give some credit to Maher that at least he is a lib who will LiSTEN to the other side and even agree sometimes - such as  he does by calling LBGT and he/he/ other a bunch of craziness -

Yes.  That's all you can ask from a liberal or anyone else,  to consider both sides of each issue honestly.

I am so sick of hearing regurgitated dishonest liberal straw man talking points repeated ad nauseum.  Once both sides of it are honestly considered,  I can accept and respect someone having a different viewpoint.

« Reply #1772 on: August 27, 2022, 11:29:38 AM »
here is another from an obvious lib ->

https://www.worldofreel.com/blog/2022/8/bpvpwg0d8fqx5ywj0oma7dqpevn8np

"‘My Son Hunter’: Hunter Biden Movie is as Deranged as it Sounds"

Maybe not a good movie

but it is NOT THE MOVIE THAT IS AS DERANGED AS IT SOUNDS , IT IS HUNTER AND FATER AND BIDEN FAMILY THAT ARE DERANGED AS THEY SOUND.

Again change the subject from the subject of the movie to the direction production of the movie

right.

50 people to MV = "political stunt" , "inhumane", "abusing human beings for political gain"
and front and center news from the MSM!

5,000,000 over the Southern border = perfectly legal because they are told to say "I am seeking asylum". This "humane" : "we are a nation of immigrants" ; "great for the economy"
"not politically motivated "; "border is secure"; " we have processes in place " and virtually ignored by MSM!

 :roll:  :x :wink: :x

some of the rich and famous and glorious kings and queens of MV:

https://www.businessinsider.com/marthas-vineyard-obama-ceos-millionaires-celebs-homes-vacations-2019-12

Celebrities like Bill Murray, Meg Ryan, Reese Witherspoon, Mike Wallace, and even Princess Diana have all regularly visited. A number of them, such as Michael J Fox, have called the Vineyard their home. The low-key vibe is just one of the reasons the rich and famous make Martha’s Vineyard part of their summer circuit.

Assuming 'migrants' keep coming, DeSantis and Abbott can just keep doing this, drip, drip, drip, until the election and longer.  Transporting people across state lines, with their full consent and cooperation, is legal!

Might as well move the worst ones to the front of the line.

Trump says, they're emptying their prisons on us.  If so, find them and send them.

They can stay in Obama's guest rooms and even sray in the MBR when they're not home.  What's the matter?  Don't ya trust 'em?

Of course not, they're all unscreened.

Why does the Left invite people onto our streets that they wouldn't have in their homes?

The issue is perfectly framed and back in the news.

Never thought I would click on his opinion much less post it.  Wow has he grown and has guts to criticize what I assume still is his own side.

Something I'm proud of here, we rip our own when they're wrong.  Seldom do we see it on the Left.  When it happens it's a breath of fresh air.

Yes

very rare on the LEFT

it certainly drives his ratings up

I actually look forward to watching him now
since he does at least give credence and legitimacy to our side

his lib guests NEVER DO

they nervously laugh grimace or show facial signs of silent outrage....

was this the show the lib historian  Jon Meacham was on?

he has convinced Biden how he will go down in history with the pantheon of great presidents
if he rams the lib ideology down our throats
make us suffer now but 30 yrs from now you Joe will be far more consequential then Barack Obama - you helped us go green - you fought back the magas - and saved Democracy

And Joe the lifelong dupe falls for it ........

Meacham  is a sinister little prick imo

Cognitive Dissonance of the Left, "Build the Swamp!"
« Reply #1797 on: September 21, 2022, 07:19:28 AM »
Know your opponent.  I spotted this new slogan on a Minneapolis liberal bumper sticker:

"Build the Swamp!"
----------

One former President said, how can they be against making America great again?  Now we find, in an honest moment, they are pro-swamp!
