Mr. Minimus, how do you feel?

    DoC basically nailed it.

    Trump engaged in sexist 'locker room talk' in a private conversation with another guy. It's not nice, but just look at how feminists reacted to it. They practically called Trump a sex offender. Ridiculous …

    You aren't listening. You aren't being serious - which is fine. That seems to be the pattern here.

    @millie had a good illustration either in this thread or a different (can't remember right now): If your child was sick and needed a surgery, a complicated surgery, right now, and you had to choose between doctors:

    1) A very experience and capable doctor that has done the needed surgery many times, no casualties. But he's not so charming. Maybe he's had 5 wives. Generally a jerk. Maybe rough around the edges. Hell, let's just say (even though this doesn't map with Trump) he's got a grand dragon KKK hood in his office.


    2) A doctor everyone loves. Charismatic, nice. But loses 1/2 his patients.

    Which would you choose? Would you really care so much about doctor #1's faults? There are more pressing issues, and those faults can be set aside for the moment.

    I've said it this way:

    A man is wheeled into the ER with massive wounds everywhere, perhaps due to a car accident. The ER doctor starts to fix the small cut on the patient's hand while he bleeds out due to the massive chest wounds. How do you feel about this ER doctor?

    Focusing on Trump's charisma and his personality is like focusing in on the small cut. There are bigger issues to deal with. There are bigger problems to address in order to prevent death. The left is undermining general western principles. It has been happening for quite some time, but it is accelerated now.

    Let me try it this way:

    If Biden were to come out tomorrow and say: "Ok guys, we've been a bit stupid. No more identity politics. This systemic racism stuff is garbage. We need to promote systems based on merit. It is not a sign of "whiteness" to get up in the morning and hold a job, to delay gratification and save money. Frankly, we've been pushing real racism for a while and need to back off that. Also, the assault on fossil fuels is a bit exaggerated and we're going to kill a lot of people if we do this. Markets are good, and we have too much regulation, and we have to get our debt under control. And ... let's be honest, the COVID thing was a scare tactic. And good lord, the news media is flat out garbage now, always stoking racial tensions. I mean, CNN is more like the Onion than a news network. And don't get me started with the Green New Deal - that is a document only mentally retarded people take seriously. And, in general, some very western civ values, like freedom of speech and the principle of 'innocent until proven guilty' are actually good things."

    There are many more things, but if he said stuff like this, hell, *** I *** would have voted for him.

    So try again: It is NOT about Trump. It is about POLICY.

    Dear TDS people. I know you like to repeat the claims from 5 years ago non-stop, but it's tiresome and doesn't accomplish anything. I'll be deleting any comments like that from now on.

    You said you don't watch CNN. Ok, good. All good and fine. So if you are really serious, you would ask yourself this (edited to remove CNN):

    "Why the fuck do I think Trump never denied white supremacy? After all, I'm looking at YEARS AND YEARS of examples of him doing just that? I've operated under the impression for 4 years that he just doesn't want to deny white supremacy, yet it seems like he's been doing it all along. Where did that idea come from?"

    MeanMrMustard (how I do love that name)

    Pale is passing over what I said because he didn't care for it. I was mistakenly sucked in by his appearance of genuinely wanting to understand. .

    I have asked in the past for someone to please explain to me how socialism (lets just call the radical left by its real name shall we?) is a desirable thing (unless you are part of the 1%) and NO ONE took me up on it.

    No one answered my question.

    I didnt want to be of that same ilk which is why I took Pale at face value.

    I would do it again.

    I dont claim that my views are right. I am just making a genuine effort to have the right view. I welcome anyone who can help me have a better one. I just wont be thrown off by shiny bells and whistles like freebies from the government or faux sweeping magnanimity like "everyone deserves to come live in America".

    Life is tough. That is a fact. If you want to make it a little easier on yourself - do the work. No shortcuts.

    Why does only approximately half of America get that?

    Life is tough. That is a fact. If you want it easy - do the work. No shortcuts.

    Why does only approximately half of America get that?

    Because they've been told that it's not their fault! It's not their fault that they are disadvantaged. It's not their fault that they didn't pass high school. It's not their fault that they did not go to college or trade school to get a good job.

    Plus they have gotten into the habit that they will be given everything if they complain loud enough.

    And perhaps some of it really IS NOT their fault. Maybe their parents were shitty parents. Maybe they were raised by a single parent. Maybe they were raised by Grandma because neither parent was responsible. But for everyone one of them with those circumstances that is failing, there is another who rose up and is succeeding.

    THERE AIN'T NO FREE LUNCH! As soon as a person learns that the sooner they are on their way to success and prosperity.

    Mr. Minimus is just fine. I don’t think this is over just yet. But if Biden becomes President, I won’t vandalize and destroy a bunch of stores.

    No I don't think it's over yet either...they're saying that Biden may win the popular vote by close to 6 million & the electoral vote by over 300...Yup...I agree I don't think this is over!'s time to take the band-aid off...just rip the damn thing off!

    I would not be surprised if the left keeps counting until they get EVERY LAST DAMNED ELECTORAL VOTE OUT THERE!

  • minimus

    It’s not how many votes , it’s how many valid votes that should be counted.
