even with all that we have seen you still work to divide the left so the GOP can win, are you confused or are you an agent of the right? have you not seen with AOC that the way to change is by taking over the Dems?

U are the reactionary de facto "agent of the right" here - U D&R dingbaft! Now go get a clue ...

et fiat lux!

when you have no answer for your actions you reach for a link, you work to divide the left so the right can win, you are an agent of the right

So, d'U regard yourself as being "Of The Left" - frf? What about Biden ... is he 'of the left'?! Or is your p-o-v only influenced by "relativity" ... ie. JB NOT being tRUMP?!! Heard of the 'Right Shift' of the "Overton Window"?!!! Talking of "relatively", now here's an essay by one of the definitive compassionate & revered wise scientists of our modern age, for your consideration & curiosity:

It's extremely typical of your day time drinking grumpy ass to hate actual leftists but this is OWS dummy and I've many clear "answers for my actions" but as ever, they're wasted on your Duopoly Addicted RW ass and so of course I post with 'links', because I post through, around and over RW Democraps like U!

Are U prepared for the fight to come IF Biden wins? IF not & U rest on your RW ass .. it means U = RW, as "liberal" just doesn't cut it for The 99%, does it? Sadly Democrap Addicted Centrists - just don't get it!

et ergo - temet nosce!

your just so damn full of yourself Shadz, you scream out "duopoly" as if you have actually said something, why don't you say it plain and simple did you vote? did you vote for some shithead so Trump could win? or did you vote for the only person with a chance to beat Trump? or are those questions too tough for you to answer?

Democratic Party is resistant to being taken over, as you've already seen twice, despite what they advertise as their open-primary policy. Bernie Sanders has already lost twice in his bid for the nomination.

Even when Obama got in as the President, it's the Democrats who colluded with the Retardicans to defeat his agenda. Obama was frankly over his head dealing with the financial crowd lobbying his administration. He was so concerned with putting the sickest patients' bills on the taxpaying public that Obamacare had to unravel on its cost basis. The traditional American way of dealing with insurmountable financial distress is through bankruptcy. ( Our President's motto was probably, "To go bankrupt is glorious !" because he has reportedly declared bankruptcy for six times already. Maybe the seventh will be his greatest of all. ) Besides, the correct way to cut down medical care costs is through preventive care largely by the people themselves. Few automobile mechanics can fix extremely abused or already rusted-through cars. Having the taxpayers pay for the bills just shifts and increases the costs. It doesn't solve the excessive cost problem. On the other hand, the same amount of money can be used with far more returns in preventive care such as free childhood vaccinations, possibly school-based for parents' convenience.

Let us say a school has 400 pupils. Our current way to get them vaccinated is for the parents to make >400 phone calls to make the doctors' appointments, have at least one person possibly taking off from work to drive to school, pick up the child, drive the child to the doctor's office for a visit, wait for the doctor to become available, accompany the child when the doctor comes in and asks about the purpose of the visit, wait for the doctor to call a nurse who will find the vaccine, the disinfecting alcohol pad, syringe, and come in to jab the child. The parent then returns the child to school and possibly goes back to work. The process takes at least two to three hours for a needle jab. Multiply that by 400 and doctor's fee, nurse's pay, receptionist's pay, etc., the car's gasoline and depreciation, the parent's lost time from work, etc. Repeat this process for the easily dozens or more jabs needed for a full regimen of childhood vaccinations and costs add up fast !

Oh, I haven't even touched upon how a needle jab's associated costs are to be paid for via credit cards, phone calls to process the credit cards to inquire about the creditworthiness of the cardholder, validate the card as being still valid, etc.

The benefit is that the child gets customized doctor's service so in principle, it's safer for the child if there is some important adverse reaction possible. Most parents however already know of these reactions about their child so asking them first can remove most uncertainty.

The Democrats just didn't know how to run the country. I'm not saying though that the Retardicans are any better because they simply refused to run the country. It anyways pretty much amounts to the same thing, approximately one hundred years retarded relative to Hong Kong { where I was born above the Crystal Palace which was flanked by the Azure Dragon } ( some people still don't seem to know why wearing masks can curb infections and act accordingly; not everyone of us needs to be the flagstaff of our country ! By my childhood "holey sitty on a bluff," there was a cock (faucet/tap) that spewed out all of our shantytown's clean municipal water which we drank; it was "pissing in the wind" alright; we all loved it as long as the "water" wasn't golden colored. )

I sort of understand why such medical care retardation is tolerated in the U.S. Most U.S. citizens believe in American exceptionalism which the British in Hong Kong could've told the U.S. the fallacy of such belief because they had learnt their very hard lesson in the 1920s as far as contagious diseases were concerned. There is no such thing as British or American immunity.

Medical specialists see things closeup and say people are very different ( there are indeed very powerful genes around in the human genome such as the SRY gene which tends to make a person male instead of female ) but on a national genetic level, there's no significant difference of contagious disease susceptibility but culturally there can be a vast difference which is fortunate indeed because cultures can evolve very rapidly to deal with a deadly contagious disease. For example, there was little resistance in West Africans against quarantine regiments ordered by their more trusted Cuban doctors backed up by the U.S. soldiers. That very peculiar American contingent ( Cuba in the lead working with the U.S. as blessed by Fidel Castro himself: "Of course we can work with the Americans." ) hit home the seriousness of the Ebola outbreak so behaviors changed. I haven't yet seen a country of Übermenschen whose apparent immunity to CoViD-19 outbreak thus far wasn't due to cultural but to genetic factors.

My spiritual godfather was in the business of helping to prescribe medicines to the suffering masses, building medical clinics, hospitals, housing orphans in a converted temple, etc. It's a business alright ( without the believers donating, these things couldn't be done as easily; what's possible begins with what one believes is possible ) but it's not quite the same as most other businesses.

We have many options beside the vote. You're just too docile to know of these, I suppose. My guess is that you're mostly U.S. bound and haven't lived with the peoples of very different cultures. Authoritarianism/autocracy is much more prevalent away from the U.S.A. and other peoples do deal with them in their own ways.

The nation has also shown a resistance to change, do I need to outline the case really? Would it be your position that we not attempt that as well? You say there are "other things" I support those as well, but if you then don't vote or vote for some impossible chance to "make a point" then EVERYTHING else you do is worth NOTHING with that one screw up you have done more harm than any protest could ever accomplish. It STARTS with voting, it doesn't end there, voting smartly to KILL the GOP is the least we can do, but it is also the most important thing we can do. If you have lived in other places then you know they take voting very seriously as a rule.

The GOP is for "the Losers" so it's dying anyway. People should support the right-to-cough-free "covfefe" states forming the base of the magical degreasing dirt-cleaning GOOP.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8268) from Phoenix, AZ 2 days ago

and here I thought you wanted to be part of something, to help bring about change, but you say the GOP can die on its own, you have no interest in helping it along? then why the hell are you posting here?

My Mom taught me an important policy: 不打落水狗 Don't beat a dog which has fallen into deep water. She excluded the cheaters from her leniency, though. Fudging a school grade report warranted a butt-spanking ( yes, it was Biblical: "Butt, butt, I think I understand. Butt, butt is holding Jesus' hand !" this was yet another baby boomer special besides Coppertone(R) suntan and skin peels ) after she had been stood up bragging to the neighborhood children ( who were her son's ¡classmates! ) how well her elder son did in school. She discovered forgeries upon close examination.

It often makes little sense to corner a drowning dog. If the dog drowns, it wouldn't have mattered anyway whether you have helped it along. If the dog doesn't drown and you've tried to corner it to death, it may very well come back gnawing after you.

Here's one way which had worked for both the U.S. and Japan. We commemorate our past so we never forget but we don't want to harbor rancor in the present so that it may poison our future together. As Lincoln had said, "With malice towards none, and charity for all."

PeKing dealt with protests against corruption in this way in 天安门广场/天安門廣場/TinAnMen Square, building the new Great Wall of blood and flesh with the CCP-paid-for bullets largely fired/started by the "乡下人/鄉下人/country folk" of the so-called "People's" "Liberation" Army ( or more correctly, the Political Oppression Army.) Poseidon/Neptune beats "unsinkable" aircraft carriers into Peaces. May Peace be with the CCP. It's no anti-Sinicism. The CCP needs to learn that calcium carbonate of the reefs broken up to create the artificial islands dissolves in acidic seawater ( carbonic acid is exported en masse by mainland China to the seas nearby--just ask Hong Kongers how bad the air in Hong Kong got.) I could have told these hillbillies that my Big Brother's secondary-school Chemistry textbook showed the formula for dead-reef dissolution. Read, Duh, Books ! "Man over Mother Nature" and "Man gets fucked !" The biggest brutes were Stalin and Mao because they believed this dopey "Man over Mother Nature" stupidity and tried to ¡carry it out! and became the Motherbefuckers.

Hitler could not apply for this title because Nazi Germany was a fatherland and he was no homosexual -- he ordered rounding up and murdering homosexuals. He might qualify for being a Fatherbefucker. Modern Germans will probably agree with that more appropriate title.

Here is Moscow's statement of how fascists are to be dealt with in the Russian way.

Yeltsin used tanks to bombard the White House ( note how Russia blamed other countries for provoking unrests: CNN cameras were in place to record; there were unknown snipers; etc. CNN is a news organization, duh ! The best news organizations have recordings of most significant { or otherwise } happenings.) The Bolsheviks used bullets { and axe to hack the "die-hard" maruta } on the so-called "last" Czar, his family members, and attendants.

The French used the highly efficient guillotine, amenable to the public-stage display of industrial mass executions.

There are many import options. There are also export options ( Sarah Palin could "see it" from her place ! ) possible according to Juche.

The U.S. supports Juche state sovereignty to prevent World Hell Organization from investigating our bioweapon factories installed in most of our homes ( French homes have fewer of these so it probably caused French women to stay younger-looking by making hot showers and baths difficult and therefore they do these less frequently than the corresponding American ones; environment affects health and beauty which is indeed largely skin-deep; high-latitude-region-residing women tend to have better younger-looking skin due to their less sunlight exposure; how to preserve a plum from turning into a smoked or dried plum { a prune } is a good guide for how to preserve a beautiful body; it's also possible to do the same by extreme melanin pigmentation of the skin so old-aged { though rare due to much socially imposed stress on dark-skinned people shortening lives } black beauties can exist despite their much sunlight exposure.) Open Skies Treaty violates our privacy of Defecation.
