anyway was coming to say in news today the turd went to arizona today and apparently the magas are threatening to splinter from the repukes.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...19d_story.html

which would be a great thing

"Multiple people in Trump’s orbit, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations, say Trump has told people that the third-party threat gives him leverage to prevent Republican senators from voting to convict him during the Senate impeachment trial."

on the contrary--just ban him from federal office for life, case closed.

Yes, it will be fascinating to see what the Repukes do now. A lot of soul searching will be done, and The Magas will need to be accommodated somewhere/somehow. I wonder if this means Dem electoral superiority for 4-8 years?

I suppose after 4 years of this, we can now ask: Is America Great Again?

Are you guys talking about the same thing? After four years of that fucking asshole OF COURSE things are not great, they're not even good, they're completely worse and the country's in the shitter. Now, if you're answering to, "OK, now that we elected Biden...", there's all kinds of potential for improvement, especially with a majority in Congress (razor-thin, but still), and that's not being naive - it's just that the baseline is so unbelievably low.

It's well assumed that any upwards movement will be a win, but at the same time, you really never know. I assume some movement up will definitely occur overall.

Yeah, I kinda knew the answer to that question.

yes, after the Trump administration, we are thoroughly dead inside. Give us time to resurrect.

To be fair, it would be far from the first extremely loud minority that I've heard.

increasing voltage to 400...

clear!

 


im in a very optimistic mood right now. noise aside, the speeding up of the vaccinations is starting to become visible in my area. yes, shit will happen as it often does, but more vaccination is great not just for public health but for the economy.

the impending stimulus is also good, and i agree that not everyone needs it but people need to stay alive till the economy picks up again.

i'm also bullish on future outcomes of the infrastructure plan. we sure need a fucking upgrade from the eisenhower era, and putting people to work should be a much better stimulus than quantitative easing, plus yield economic dividends for generations

and didn't you see fauci free at last? that's gotta be worth something.

there's a difference between skepticism and cynicism. one thing is to not be sure future outcomes; another is to deny the validity of present developments. yes it is better already and by far. pandemic management by science not tantrum? yes please.

You should look at it from a wider perspective. Unfortunately the world outside of America has been inspired or infected by Trumpism as well, such as:
- uprise of politicians or political parties in other countries, such as Thierry Baudet in Netherlands. Or Pegida, that started in Germany but is spreading over Europe
- disbelief in press
- disbelief in politics
- disbelief in police
