  1. I am unable to believe you, but then I am also unable to believe this photo from Trump rally in MAY 2020.... https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/13/opinion/activism-trump-masks-climate.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage To be fair, not only Americans are idiots - in Poland we'd just had a huge gethering of CoVID deniers, without masks, with calls of "Imprison Bill Gates", "The pandemic is a lie" etc... The police did nothing of course - though they were breaking the rules, they were right-wing idiots...
  2. I am no militarist, on the contrary - whenever I hear about imperialist scum sending their soldiers to die willy-nilly I feel like sending there instead those politicians that give the order. However, to all the Head Trolls calling the dead servicemen losers or suckers - I dedicate this song from my youth;
  3. He doesn't need this knowledge to do his stuff. We do.
  4. Do try to broaden your horizons. It doesn't hurt much. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/07/trumps-collaborators/612250/ P.S. The final phrase should be translated into English as - It doesn't pay to be decent, but it's worth it.
  5. I disagree with you Doro here on all - except the fixing the quote thinggy. Even the merging thinggy Look, had you called me a fucking bitch to my face, I would have thrown a punch at you. But she handled it way better than that. She wiped the floor with him. As she did here - She's good.
  6. And yes, I was quoting myself from another forum. Never liked AOCmuch before, you know, them bulging eyes, socialism and all... But now I think she's f... awesome.
  7. I have been thinking... (warning bells ringing) ... What does the leadership of the top three countries in the world (as far as number of deaths from Covid is concerned) has in common? They are idiots? It's the first answer that springs to mind. First, but not the best - Johnson is NOT an idiot. The real answer is - all three - Trump, Bolsonaro, Johnson have truth and reality in disregard. What they want and will - that's reality for them. Think about it when you elect your new leaders. Or count the coffins.
  8. 4 + E E = it will become like flu, with the caveat that the ecomomic (and therefore political) upheaval will be very, very serious. Mind you - flu IS deadly "Globally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the flu kills 290,000 to 650,000 people per year."
  9. You've got to be kidding. Though Hilary's cold glare made me think of Kesey's Big Nurse or some other Evil Bitch, Trump was always in an class of his own. (Perhaps with Bolsonaro or Duterte). Ruled by a narcissistic, juvenile imbecile is better than by a Cold Professional? Your choice. Just count the dead. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa-hart-island/new-york-city-hires-laborers-to-bury-dead-in-hart-island-potters-field-amid-coronavirus-surge-idUSKCN21R398 P.S. - Much as I hate (with reasons) the current Polish regime, its reaction to the
  10. Bolsonaro beats him hands down. Criminals, both of them. Imbecility is not an excuse, when you are in a position of power.
  11. Lately I tired again to listem to him. It is incoherent drivel. One of the best remarks by a journalist during the 2016 elections was; "What does he mean when he says words?" His decision making process during this tragedy was ............ Apt quote; An imbecile at the head of the US government would always be a problem. But an imbecile so narcissistic that he elevates his own stunted knowledge above the judgment of medicine and science is a calamity.
  12. 1 - That it's not one's fault that one does not have yellow skin, squinty eyes or dark hair. 2 - That people don't love Americans whenever they go, even if they bring democracy on their bayonets or topple disgusting or even criminal regimes. In 1964 I visited North Vietnam for a few days, mainly their museums of resistance, and the holes in their roads, made by American bombs. Then I learned that Americans are idiots. (Or at least their political class is.) Now I learned they still are idiots, and that it's an incurable condition.
  13. As a small kid in Japan, I was jeered for having blue eyes, blond hair, body odor, and being part of the occupying force. That taught me many things.
  14. This is all very strange. Can't pretend to understand.
  15. @ Doro - I vehemently disagree, but it's late, and the forum does strange things to my post. Will reply tomorrow.
  16. There is a saying - "Wherever you travel, you will find yourself there". Or some such. I will invent a new saying; "Whatever you read is limited to what you think."
  17. I bit of teary eyes there, but the gist is serious.
  18. Jedy sighs heavily, though reading without understaniding seems normal here. No I am NOT in the camp of "Society is to blame", but rather trying to understand the mechanics pushing whole stratum of people into degenarate behavior.
  19. Just signalling the underlying issues - I have no simple solutions like "power to the unions" or "feed the poor". I think those tendencies are widespread, not limited to the USA.
  20. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/09/opinion/sunday/deaths-despair-poverty.html YAMHILL, Ore. — Chaos reigned daily on the No. 6 school bus, with working-class boys and girls flirting and gossiping and dreaming, brimming with mischief, bravado and optimism. Nick rode it every day in the 1970s with neighbors here in rural Oregon, neighbors like Farlan, Zealan, Rogena, Nathan and Keylan Knapp. They were bright, rambunctious, upwardly mobile youngsters whose father had a good job installing pipes. The Knapps were thrilled to have just bought their own home, and everyone oohed

    World War 3

    They've admitted now - it's official. (At least they didn't take a leaf from Putin's Ukraine shot-down plane handbook and claimed that Americans tried to down the plane cause they thought Iran's president was on board. Those lies went down pretty well. ) I hope that from now on they give those russian rockets to people with more than a week's training.

    World War 3

    It is not yet certain the plane was shot down. Too soon to blame Trump or Iran for it.

    World War 3

    A quote from some OMB journal, very apt, worth a moment of reflection IMO; ... Trump, however, has turned his back on everything that used to make America great. Under his leadership, we’ve become nothing more than a big, self-interested bully — a bully with delusions of grandeur, who isn’t nearly as tough as he thinks. We abruptly abandon allies like the Kurds; we honor war criminals; we slap punitive tariffs on friendly nations like Canada for no good reason. And, of course, after more than 15,000 lies, nothing our leader and his minions say can be trusted. Trump
