Apollonius (Theocritos) said...do not even know what century the Civil War was fought.
Me: What century was the Civil War?
20 year old girl: "Like, I should care?"
Michael Moore is a turd who was made extremely wealthy by the nation he purports to despise...
Again, Sonate, you don't seem to get it. You think the author is making fun of black people when in fact he was making fun of liberals who think black people need help from smart people like him.
veryone knows about lynching. Is this what you really think this memorial is about?
The museum is about making money. It's very much on the model of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Gullible liberals line up to pay for their sins.
After the way Democrats, the media, and bureaucrats within the state behaved in the aftermath of Donald Trump's election, trust has broken down.
I don't see any way to restore it since the two issues that are of most concern to conservatives are immigration and voting regulations.
The elite have no interest in containing illegal immigration. When conditions deteriorate in their neighbourhood, they can move anywhere or hire a platoon of armed security guards.
The German Supreme Court has declared all voting machines illegal from being too easily manipulated. Paper ballots only. Hand counted. The Netherlands is the same.
France hasn't allowed mail-in votes since the 1970s. Again, it's too open to fraud.
But since no one is even open to talking about reform the system is broken.
Like many I see parallels with Rome. In Augustus Caesar's day the Roman civil service operated with about 300 people. By the time we get to Diocletian and Constantine there were 30,000 and the Empire had gone from authoritarian to totalitarian.
I won't waste any time with Michael Moore. I'm just surprised that anyone here would even bring him up. He just keeps engaging in one publicity stunt after another. I'd call him a flake except that flakes are usually thin. This guy is thick.
I appreciate your concern. It hasn't been easy especially with the cold weather.
Do you mind me asking where you live, Sonate?
It's cold here too (this is Canada). But right where I'm at (British Columbia) it's actually wetter than it is cold.
I feel most badly about those who live alone, especially older people. A lot of them are truly isolated.
In the list below, I have included what I think are the six most concerning statements from Trump’s speech. And then I have mixed in various statements from prominent Democrats and progressives with regard to leftist mob violence. See if you can tell which are which:
“Make the phone calls, send the emails, show up. You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives.”
We’re going walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women. We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.”
“I believe injustice is a threat to the safety of all people. Because once you have a group that is marginalized . . . they have no choice but to riot.”
“We will not let them silence your voices.”
“[W]e’re going to have somebody in there that should not be in there and our country will be destroyed, and we’re not going to stand for that.”
“And everyone beware, because they’re [violent protests] not gonna stop….They’re not gonna let up. And they should not. And we should not.”
“We will never give up. We will never concede, it doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved.”
“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be. . . .”
“We’re not going to let it happen.”
“The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”
“Together we are determined to defend and preserve government of the people, by the people and for the people.”
Answers below the fold.
The museum is about commemorating the previously nameless and faceless people who died as a result of Jim Crow. There's a museum in his honor too because shitty things need to be remembered too.
Give insight into how people were treated because of color. Why wouldn't you want that?
The democrats? LMAO, This pitiful excuse we have for a president was giving the finger to the justice department, to the court justices even he appointed. Had he showed respect for the system, one which BTW was less problematic in 2020 than it was in 2016, and simply conceded instead of feeding paranoid conspiracy theories to the gullible who were hungry for it, the storming of the Capitol would not have happened.
I note that in deference to your actually evaluating the findings of those courts which actually looked at the signed petitions and the findings of small insignificant voter irregularity and abuse and determined that these few errors couldn't possibly have altered the outcome of the vote count to the extent that Trump wanted either all the votes thrown out or a new election, you start up again with the mail in vote as if that was a significant source of error. Very cute!
