Ahhh, I didn’t say that, I said the opposite. Leave the emotion and please go back read what I said, please.

You would do well to heed your heed your own advice.

No, that’s her opinion, but 78 million don’t think so, if she wants to try and take Trump on, she’s more naive than I thought and it’s amazing to me how liberals and Democrats are putting Liz on a Saint’s Pedestal when over the last 4 years they had nothing but contempt for this woman. You guys are funny. Lol.

It’s not an opinion that there was no fraud in the election, it’s a fact. It doesn’t matter how many people believe otherwise; facts don’t depend on conservatives’ feelings.

As is Joe Manchin, looks like the filibuster will stand and the Senate will be 50/50 body, glad he didn’t follow the party line either, so I hope Democrats can tolerate people within their own party having their own critical ideas and beliefs, Joe has his and it’s not with a lot of his parties big power grab.

Joe Manchin and the democrats are completely irrelevant to the GOP not allowing its members to think for themselves.

Do your own routine maintenance on one and you won't be so enthusiastic about them. Believe me. The interior plastics don't age well either.

I second this statement.

According to Newt Gingrich everyone in the country possibly believes Biden won fair and square. I seriously cannot see all those 2020 Trump voters clinging to this delusion of his or sticking with him right through to 2024.

We can only hope. That said, never underestimate the power of stupidity. Doing so is exactly why the 45th president was who it was.

Posted in: Republicans tell Biden tax hikes are a non-starter in recovery plan See in context

Well, if that’s true then maybe Biden and Bernie will listen to you and not go forward with this madness, last time this happened it was under Joe’s other boss and his tax hikes led to the formation of the Tea Party and it ultimately cost the Democrats both chambers and once again they’re doing the same thing all over again. Of course the Dems have to raise taxes on everyone, he has to otherwise there is no way the Federal government can pay for all of this, it’s already an insurmountable amount, but gradually taxes are going up and as long as I have been living on this planet, I have never met a Democrat who didn’t love a tax hike and if you want to believe Joe’s Trojan horse, fine. Joe, keep helping the GOP your a better friend to them than I’d hope you would be. 2022

Okay, but none of this supports your assertion that “the Democrats want to tax people into oblivion.”

Nope, and this isn’t a logical inference from the article.

Pull out all your money from the Olympics and invest it in the vaccine roll out program.

Why are you recommending they do this for a virus you have repeatedly told us is no worse than the flu?

You can, but when you have over 78 million people following the former President and Cheney making threats like that, the end result is, you will lose votes.

So what your saying is is that the Republican Party cannot allow differing opinions. Got it.

Right now the House looks better than good for the GOP

More of your predictions. Too funny.

and they need to be laser focused and Cheney can’t stop or change the minds of the people supporting him, he’s not going anywhere and her threats are ineffective and a huge distraction for the country. So the only real solution is, get rid of the distraction problem and that’s what they did, she basically became a liability.

It’s hilarious that you label Cheney rightly calling out Trump’s incessant lying about the election a threat.

And that’s why she’s gone. She failed in that mission, miserably.

She did fail to blindly follow the party line because the party line is a complete lie regarding the election. You literally just proved my point that republicans cannot tolerate people thinking on their own.

Yes, we need to protect the job creators so they can move the jobs overseas where labor is cheaper. Just what a capitalist free market dictates.

Got to love this. Partisan propaganda mislabelled as "news" these days.... it is like reading the Global Times.

You incessantly complain about the sources of news but never provide us with accurate sources. I wonder why that is. It country he because you don’t actually have any other sources, could it?

All thanks to the leadership of our duly elected (electoral and popular votes) president, Joseph R. Biden, Jr.

Yes, yes. Operation Warp Speed, which is to be praised for allowing vaccines we refuse to take to be developed.

Republican leaders insisted that purging Trump critic Rep Liz Cheney from their ranks was necessary to unify the party ahead of next year’s midterm elections.

Put more concisely: We can’t have people who think for themselves in the Republican Party.

And “conservatives” accuse liberals of group think!

So far they have done a horrible job. They have done absolutely nothing positive for the people in Gaza.

Demonstrably false, and irrelevant to the fact that Hamas was democratically elected in a fair process.

Rather, understanding Hamas’s popularity requires an examination of the factors that contributed to its rise. Indeed, Hamas’s modern appeal and electoral popularity can be traced to its early participation in Palestinian civil society and in its emphasis in providing social services for residents of the Gaza Strip.

http://www.apollonejournal.org/apollon-journal//hamas-weaponizing-civil-society-and-social-services

*

"Despite its militant reputation," the Council on Foreign Relations adds, "Hamas's local support in many ways can be traced to its extensive network of on-the-ground social programming, including food banks, schools, and medical clinics ... Hamas devotes much of its estimated $70 million annual budget to an extensive social services network."

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.theweek.co.uk/middle-east/gaza/59659/understanding-hamas-part-terrorism-part-good-works%3famp

Well, then maybe the Palestinians could start by recognizing and acknowledging Israel as the land of the Jewish people and take it from there, 

It is as much, if not more, the land of the Palestinian people.

These Hamas freedom fighters, militants or whatever are always hiding in the civilian population.

This is a common strategy for forces that are far outnumbered and out-equipped by the opposing force. That doesn’t make it morally correct, though.

It's extremely naive to imagine that they would have been satisfied with any other piece of land. 

I don’t believe they would have been satisfied with any other piece of land. That, however, does not change the fact that the Palestinians have been forced to pay for a European transgression.

Israel should do whatever it takes to stop and uphold freedom and democracy in the region 

Hamas was elected in a fair election and protect what little freedoms the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have, which is to say Israel should stop committing atrocities against the Palestinians in order to uphold freedom and democracy.

I’m not sure why you would want to stop and uphold anything though.

Saying that in the US today can almost get you prosecuted for "hate speech".

There are no laws in the US that prohibit “hate speech.”

It's enough to get you booted from some major universities (students or faculty both) or get you fired from all kinds of jobs.

Unfortunately, you are correct. This is one of the reasons why the right react so hyperbolically to the left in the US. It also demonstrates the undue influence Israel has in the US.

You really think it's possible, given the US support of Israel?

If every state in the world and most people boycotted and divested from Israel, it would counter the US’ slavish support of Israel. That said, I get your point.

You have extremely delicate friends.

Half a gram if most weed is enough for a smoke. I’m not sure where you get your information or weed, but you need to find better sources.

Alcohol is too unhealthy for my friends to drink. It also causes people to be violent.

Boycott, divest from, and sanction Israel until it stops abusing the human rights of the Palestinians through collective punishment and land grabs.

It’s sad that Europe felt so guilty about the Holocaust that it green lit the stealing of Palestinian land to set up a Jewish state. The Palestinians paid for Europeans allowing the rise of Hitler. Justice would have been European countries coughing up land for a Jewish state.
