Thanks! I value that.

I agree. I'm planning on sitting down and typing out my own take on US history whenever I get a comouter up and running.

Priorities though, and computer is number three on that list. Actually, four. Depending on what list I'm looking at lol.

If you and I and 55 other like-minded people had a weekend away from everything where we could eat, chat, sit beside a campfire, share a bottle and hash things out until 3 in the morning...

The entire world would be a different place in a decade.

A better one.

Keep the faith.

HA! At the rate people are ditching the leftists/socialist/progressive faction there will not even be much of a mob other than the AI social media accounts that work full time for the explicit goal of divisive strife.

I do recall an article on the nets saying something like nearly half of all social media accounts are actually bots/AI . Maybe it was less than half, but anything over 10% is a big number in that context.


This fact is totally ignored by those liars who claim that “tHe RuSsIaNs InFluEnCeD tHe ElEcTiOn”

The “influence” was 150% anti-Republican, and still is.

Campfires are killing the planet!

Gasp.

If they want to see how fast campfires kill the planet, they need to mandate their green energy protocols and then leave people no choice when it comes time to stay warm.

To clarify, I'm not against green energy. There are times and places where solar power makes sense to use, for example, and in those places we should absolutely use it. But at the present, we have none of the preferred green alternatives ready to full scale replace fossil fuels on the scale being abvocated, except electrical, and that's not really green. It just hides the pollution in someone else's backyard instead of coming directly out of your tailpipe.

Yep.

China for one.

They're outsourcing pollution.

China, India, Africa ... places where the development and money is worth the environmental destruction and toxic damage.

Michigan Democratic State Lawmaker Tells Trump She's Filed Lawsuit Against Whitmer
Now The Left is eating it's own



Michigan Democratic Representative Karen Whitsett told President Donald Trump Thursday that she had filed a lawsuit against state Governor Gretchen Whitmer......Whitsett revealed the legal action during a Thursday meeting between Trump and African American and faith leaders. "I actually filed a lawsuit to the governor today as well," Whitsett told Trump.

"Thank you very much," President Trump responded. "Great job."

Just another sick trait of the left...i have a few friends in silicon valley companies and the environment is super liberal and politically correct.

They have to pretend to be liberal, lose the job or worse.

They say a few who would speak against their ideology were belittled, mocked, taunted and ultimately fired.

They have weekly meetings discussing how to be more PC, how to promote more PC. How to suppress other ways..

These radical leftists are worse then the mafia, they just dont go after you, they will go after your family, job. Some really sick sick people

Having seen Geronimo’s name etched on the wall of the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, FL many, many, too many times to be honest as admission was free for St John’s County residents...I can tell you there was a conversation around a campfire a little over 100 years ago that caused that name to be etched there...and things haven’t “Progressed” much since then.

The manufacturing of the batteries, in particular, has quite an impact on the environment.

I have never felt that alternative energy is particularly "green," its advantages are more in the realm of easy self-sufficiency, infrastructure stability, and less dependence on centralized systems. Of course, those are some of the last things that these Agenda 21 folks want..

Beyond that, I dont think that using fossil fuels is some super "evil" thing. I would like to see much higher efficiency, but we would all enjoy things like significantly higher MPG in our cars.

It seems to me that there is a place for all of these sources of energy.

What Ive found interesting is that, when I talk about some of the stuff I talk about, some peoples first response is "yeah! we need to save the environment!" I do agree with working towards less environmental impact, but thats not what we are actually working towards with this tech.

Oh life would be so sweet....I just want these nuts to come out and admit they don't give a crap about any of the people they pretend to and just admit that they like telling people what to do and think as it gives their frail little ego a boost.

Then we could have a serious discussion


Libs need the ego boost because they’re widely incapable.

Skinny jean buying, man bun wearing, safe space seeking, nanny state loving wimps.

So, yeah. They probably need an ego boost. And since they can’t handle much, they get that boost by taking down people who can do.

Haters.

I've lived many years not caring what another's sexual urges are as long as it's between consenting adults, or their religion or political affiliations frankly those are none of my business. I believe we'd all be better off if folks minded their own business and helped each other to the best of our ability.

Unfortunately not all believe that and I've noticed that it tends to be the left leaning that feel compelled to tell me what to believe although ultra right leaning do the same. My daughter and I do not have the same political beliefs but we respect one another and simply agree to disagree. I wish we'd all learn that lesson, it's okay to disagree and have reasonable discussions about it, who knows you might even change how another views issues.

Let's end all identity politics.

Let's be ourselves, mind our own business, and stop trying to control everyone else.

Amen!

When we lose the capacity for reasonable discussion we will all be absolutely doomed.

I'm very much of the same outlook as you; what people decide to do with their lives is absolutely none of my business as long as it doesn't infringe upon anyone else's safety, happiness or prosperity.

I believe Facebook has played a large hand in conniving people in to thinking that anyone out there actually cared about them.and their little world...they then believe the platform that is an online shrine to their ego exists in the real world. Nope.

The left attacks dissenters as vigorously as Muslims murder apostates. And the fake Ass modern establishment right isn't much better as they support the same self destructive policies that the left does. These fake patriots love mass migration, the diversity lie and the replacement of ethnic Europeans or white people the only difference being that they want the migrants to be legal citizens. The powers that be have been importing millions of people from incompatible third world nations for decades despite the fact that every years the people want mass migration stopped. Why would they do this? Because they know that when you strip a country of it's cultural and ethnic homogeneity that country is no longer capable of acting in it's own interest. It becomes a country in name only with now unified people. in fact identity politics and race mongering becomes inevitable as you force incompatible group of people to live together under the same set of laws. It is the blueprint for the destruction of the west. it's deliberate, it's intentional, and It's a crime against humanity that may end up killing a whole lot more than 6 million when all is said and done.across the west peoples should be engaging in brutal and violent revolution to reverse the suicidal paradigm these fascists have set upon the world. At least in america it is the right of the people to rid itself of any government that has become oppressive or tyrannical however by destroying our homogeneity america is no longer one people from one culture that value concepts of liberty and justice. we are fractured, balkanized, because the groups that now make up america have far more in conflict than in common. their is nothing to unify us anymore. The differences between races runs far deeper than the color of our skin and allowing them to convince us otherwise is how all this became possible. If all western countries had decided to maintain a certain level of ethnic homogeneity say 75% all the tribalism race politics and phony bull# concepts like white privilege would never have occurred. the diversity lie will destroy

I voted libertarian in the last election for POTUS, and received similar grief from friends and family members. "You're throwing away your vote!" All attempts by me to explain my position, that politics is not a "team sport", that this notion that voting is a zero sum death match between R's and D's is a con, a setup, fell on deaf ears.

I really don't get this need to affiliate with a political party in order to be spoon fed an opinion about what issues are important, which candidate will best address them, and how I should cast my vote.

It would be fascinating to see if some kind of political movement could be forged out of an amalgamation of the general public with similar perspectives as those posting in this thread, with very different backgrounds, very different life stories, different traits for what identity politicians today label "diversity".

Notice I didn't say political party, because that seems to be the social construct that makes politics so problematic: being regarded as a member of cult-like club, where membership is some kind of lifetime commitment, leaving the club is heresy, as is fraternizing with members of a different club. TBH when a political party reaches that stage, it's more akin to a gang than a political party. "Blood in, blood out"

Agree.

But, we lost the capacity for discourse a long time ago. That said, I’m a Libertarian so I’ve been pulling my hair out for a while - and also agree with your live/let live viewpoint.

Social media has certainly played a role in this from my perspective. You gave every moron a microphone. No longer does someone have to actually know something, they just need to be an “influencer”.

Problem with that is a lot of people who have influence due to being gifted at one thing then espouse their less than intelligent/gifted thoughts and the commoner who just goes what they’re told or who they are “influenced” by, end up buying unqualified commentary about some pretty important stuff.

So you get celebs or internet celebs with a lot of “followers” who get heralded by the media as people of the people and voila - a highly uninformed, idealistic and compliant society is propagated. Never mind the MSM influence on top of that (which is just another microphone for the same message).
