bass: That’s not true, if it were, the Dems would want to debate it, but they don’t and they won’t 

OK. Then you tell me why Republicans are closing voting polls on Sundays and banning carpools to the polls. And be sure to make up a reason that not only makes sense, but is so legitimate and necessary that it justifies the side effect of disproportionately hurting blacks.

basically saying that black people cannot coordinate the proper time and or be responsible to get to the polls on time or the day of voting without the help of whites

These are events organized and carried out by blacks for blacks. You're reached the end of the line here in terms of knowledge and responses here.

Anyway, gotta run. Thanks for chatting.

Federally backed mortgage.

bass: not taken away by non-citizens or dead people or double voting.

Closing polling places early, reducing ballot drop-off boxes, reducing registration windows, etc., do not impact security. It just reduces access, and it's especially more acute in large, densely populated cities, which is also where more minorities live.

Like I said before, you already won the voter ID battle. Now you're just straight up restricting access to voting itself, even with ID in hand. And there's nothing you can do to justify measures like that unless you just flat out support restricting access to registration and voting places.

Still have a long ways to go. A new Voting Rights Act would go a long way, since the Supreme Court gutted the old one which is, coincidently, when the GOP started closing polling places, reducing registration windows, and reduced voting times that disproportionately hurt black people.

Instead of reparations I'd rather see more federal backed loans for housing with $0 down since so many minorities were locked out of the real estate market in the past. Older whites got to pass down a fully paid for house to their kids, an asset worth sometimes hundreds of thousands, while minorities couldn't. That loss of wealth creation was devastating and takes generations to make up for.

The dog whistles continue to this day . Thug = the N word, Democrat run cities = black cities, Welfare Queen = Black woman, etc.

blacklabel: So its my choice to live in a place where I can also have a gun so that I can fire back and not be dead

Well the better situation would be if neither of you had a gun, then he's not shooting at you with his gun in the first place, and you don't have you use your gun to defend against his gun.

Not really news Guns are everywhere in the US. When someone decides he's going to flip out or gets pissed off in the heat of the moment and wants to kill someone, a gun will always be an easy option for murder.

bass: I think it’s ok for the people that can’t afford it or don’t have options or access to healthcare, good for them, it’s better than nothing. I could care less as long as the Federal government doesn’t touch my private health insurance plan and all the benefits that come with it, I’m ok

So what did Obamacare change for you?

Blacklabel: neither does the President. So WHO has "standing". and if someone did have standing, what would the verdict have been? total dodge.

Can you go into more detail about this? Sounds like if the GOP can find anyone with "standing" they would win?

Right now the top story on Fox News is Biden saying, "What in the hell?' to a reporter. Posters here here are talking German pipelines and American workers.

But Joe, didn't Putin strongly deny it? Surely that's enough to throw American intelligence agents under the bus.

Putin has reacted with whatabout-isms

Putin's supporters here in the US do the same.

Commodore Perry: Notice how it was ok when Antifa, blm

Feeling anxiety again? Run to Antifa Mountain!

Yes, I know your comments are meant to hijack the thread. And yes, I know my comments help you do that.

But on one point I need your help. I'm trying to establish that when the violence is from Antifa, the Right talks about Antifa. When the violence if from the Right, the Right talks about Antifa.

You can focus on the topic at hand, condemn the violence, and not try to deflect. My bet is very simple: you don't have it in you. And you're going to prove me right.

This is a photo of Republican Representative Andrew Clyde barricading the doors inside the Capitol during the Right's attack:

He's in the middle, the one not wearing a mask.

Clyde's comments on the insurrectionists:

"Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall, showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures. If you didn't know the TV footage was a video from Jan. 6, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit"

With men like this in their ranks, the GOP cannot be trusted to carry out a fair investigation. This is today's GOP.

require election officials to verify voters' signatures with ballot-sorting machines, limit ballot drop-box use and eliminate the state's permanent mail-voting list, forcing voters to apply for mail ballots before each election.

Can you point to any examples of voter fraud due to these restrictive measures not being in place?

limited early voting hours, added new identification requirements for absentee voting and prohibited ballot drop boxes.

Can you point to any examples of voter fraud due to these restrictive measures not being in place?

stop counties from automatically mailing Arizonans early ballots if they do not use them often enough. The legislation will remove voters from the state’s “Early Voting List” if they fail to submit an early ballot at least once every two election cycles.

Can you point to any examples of voter fraud due to these restrictive measures not being in place?

additional requirements on requesting and submitting absentee ballots. Absentee voters must submit new proof of identity when requesting their ballots and reapply for absentee ballots in each new general election cycle, rather than every two cycles. The law also limited the use of absentee drop boxes to the early voting period

Can you point to any examples of voter fraud due to these restrictive measures not being in place?

tightened absentee ballot identification requirements, restricted ballot drop-box use and allowed a Republican-controlled state agency to take over local voting operations.

Can you point to any examples of voter fraud due to these restrictive measures not being in place?

shortened the state’s early voting period and Election Day polling-place hours, imposed tighter deadlines for absentee ballots to be submitted, and made it a felony for election officials to disobey guidance from Iowa’s secretary of state, who is currently a Republican.

Can you point to any examples of voter fraud due to these restrictive measures not being in place?

Of course not. Things like restricting voting hours, restricting drop boxes, restricting early registration, and removing people from mail in ballot lists do nothing to increase security. The GOP knows this, and part of their base is duped into believe it helps and the other part knows it does nothing but go along with it because restricting democracy helps their chances of winning.

But make no mistake. The GOP, in its current state, is a dying animal. They know the younger generation do not support them, and as more youngsters begin to vote they know it's just a matter of time. These restrictive measures will help the GOP in the short term, but in the end, they can't stop what's coming.

Posted in: Republicans introduce bill to fire Fauci, face of U.S. Covid response See in context

Marjorie Taylor Greene. Here's a video of her harassing David Hogg as he walks down the street, a student who survived the Parkland shooting in Florida that killed 18 of his classmates.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GM05FwyhHPA

David turned into a gun control advocate and still is to this day. MTG follows him on the street, asks him why he lies, tells him that she's a gun owner with a concealed carry permit, and ends the video talking about his "George Soros" funded money and that he's a liberal coward.

This is how she spends her time.

She is a mentally unstable human being, and I have zero interest in hearing her views about Fauci, and you shouldn't either. If you don't like Fauci and want him gone, great. But never, ever follow or enable this person.

Who cares?

When the story is about Antifa violence, right wingers talk about Antifa violence. When the story is about right-wing violence, right wingers talk about Antifa violence.

It's a coping mechanism due to the anxiety right wingers feel when having to face the fact we're getting warnings from the government on a weekly basis about the growing dangers of right wing terrorists.

P. Smith: I must say that it’s quite funny our “conservative” posters haven’t said this makes Biden a warmonger. I guess that talking points has faded in popularity.

Oh I remember when even a hint of a conversation about Russia got a big eye roll from Trump fans, comparing its GDP to American states to minimize them, and a quick pivot to China, where apparently Biden refused to engage out of fear and, of course, Hunter Biden.

That talking point lasted about 30 days.
