—GOP purges Cheney for 'unity,' but Trump bent on retribution—

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

I’ll fix that headline to your liking. How’s this:

GOP removes Cheney for lack of conservative principles and moral integrity; Trump promises to continue healing the nation

“bitter, horrible human being,”

Trump once again projecting his feelings about himself.

Posted in: U.S. restores transgender health protections denied by Trump See in context

Tony Perkins, president of the religious conservative Family Research Council, called sex “an objective biological reality”

Says a guy who believes that dinosaurs and Homo sapiens walked the earth together, that a talking snake tempted a woman who was formed from the rib bone of her male partner, that a teenage virgin gave birth after being inseminated by a deity.

Tony Perkins really knows biological reality.

The true definition of cancel culture. It’s not only politically incorrect to speak Ill of the golden calf, it’s a mortal sin.

The GOP is a Trump-worshipping cult.

the army "could take to the street one day, to ensure respect for the Constitution (and for) freedom to come and go."

Nothing says respect for freedom and constitutional democracy like letting the army take over.

Now that Trump is out and the establishment is back in

”the establishment” = professionals who know how to do their jobs, as opposed to a clown car of attention-seeking con artists

Posted in: Trump calls probe of his ex-attorney Giuliani 'very unfair' See in context

Rudy loves this country so much

Timothy McVeigh also loved his country very much. Ergo, he was treated unfairly.

Trump would have made about as good a defense lawyer as he was president

Or maybe people shouldn’t be breaking the law.

You always come back to this. As though law-breakers deserve to be physically abused by the police.

The job of law enforcement is to protect and serve. Punishment is to be decided by the courts, not the cops.

I don't remember an insurrection incited by Waters and Holder. When did this thing happen?

Meanwhile, the thugs that burned down our cities that were pushed and egged on by violent protesters and groups such as Antifa and BLM.

And also why aren't libs talking about MS 13 caravans, liberal Satan-woshipping pedophile rings, and arch-villain Hunter Biden?

[Psaki] emphasized that the Japanese government has made public health the "central priority" 

Rather, the Japanese government has said it has made public health the central priority.

By holding the games it has shown no such priority.

Better headline: Suga Meets Biden to Promote Olympics

Posted in: Trump insults Pence, McConnell in speech to party donors See in context

Time to get rid of all Washington establishment do nothing Republicans

And replace them with circus clowns like Trump, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor-Green, Lauren Boebert, Andy Biggs, etc. That'll put the country on the fast track to a brighter future.

--The R's represent a minority of the country.

If that were true, even a little bit, the Democrats wouldn’t try to stop and oppose, cancel and block their free speech.

By that "logic", Black people in America are actually a majority because they've been discriminated against.

--Boogaloo Boys, Proud Boys, Oathkeepers, the various Qanon wacks 

Seriously, who are these people??? Never of them or what they represent.

Suuuuuuuure . . .

stamping out and eliminating the 1st and 2nd amendment

Using two different terms in one sentence to say the same thing doesn't make your argument any more persuasive.

At least 80 people killed by the military in Bago, Myanmar. None of those people are as worthy to be mourned as a royal is, apparently. What a weird world this is.

Posted in: Biden forms panel to study possible U.S. Supreme Court expansion See in context

House is first, watch the domino effect.

The GOP is going to bring about an orange wave by focusing on the evils of mail-in ballots, transgender bathrooms, censorship of Dr. Seuss books, and the persecution of Matt Gaetz.

Of course not. The issue should be resolved by the will of conservative old men.

Do it.

And get rid of the filibuster.

The GOP minority cannot be allowed to continue to obstruct democracy and functioning government.

Posted in: Police report record number of cannabis offenders in 2020 See in context

The National Police Agency warned that many young people are not aware of the risk of drugs

I watched a government drug awareness "specialist" giving a presentation to my kid's elementary school class here in Japan. He told the class that cannabis makes people act crazy, even sometimes randomly stabbing people with a knife. Total reefer madness crap.

I don't advocate that juveniles smoke pot, but if they ever find out the real truth about it through experience, they are going to harbor some serious distrust of law enforcement. Disinformation never helps.

Posted in: Florida prohibits vaccine passports, citing 'freedom' See in context

In Florida you’re free to walk around maskless, free to shoot an unarmed person if you claim that person is a threat. But if you’re an ex-felon you will never be free to vote again until you pay your poll tax (outlawed by the constitution).

Full communist takeover is on the horizon. Take note socialism fans.

This has nothing to do with socialism, communism, Marxism. This is authoritarian totalitarianism. Badly and iunjustly structured government

Such is manifest on both the left and the right.

It's an absolute shame that Frank Lloyd Wright's building was demolished in 1968. It was one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole country, without a doubt. The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust has put together a nice video recreating what it looked like. Nobody designs buildings like this anymore.

In reflection, my personal depiction of this event is irrelevant.

= OK, so I was lying, but since it's pretty clear that I can't weasel out of this like a true Trumpster, what's most important is that we forget about me lying.

Pathetic showbiz world and its existential problems..

Love the comment! Kudos!

After four years of reality TV star/jerk/attention freak Trump making everyone undergo the psychotherapy he's never man enough to face, why should I have the energy to care about rich and famous people's personal problems anymore?

Let them work it out on Oprah.
