  1. Ty MueR for the time and effort. Things... go away...
  2. I am NOT a historian, and this; https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/09/magazine/trump-coup.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage explains it much better.
  3. A fucking Beer Hall Putsch in USA... I still don't believe what I have seen. It is not an argument "ad Hitlerum" - just read and think of similarities, and the progress populism has made... His arrest was followed by a 24-day trial, which was widely publicised and gave him a platform to express his nationalist sentiments to the nation. Hitler was found guilty of treason and sentenced to five years in Landsberg Prison,[4] where he dictated Mein Kampf to fellow prisoners Emil Maurice and Rudolf Hess. On 20 December 1924, having served only nine months, Hitler was released.[5][6] Once released, Hitler redirected his focus towards obtaining power through legal means rather than by revolution or force, and accordingly changed his tactics, further developing Nazi propaganda.[7]
  4. You'd expect me to jump in with some anti "American idiots" rant. On the contrary - I'll give you an example from Poland - over 30% of the population believed nonsensical conspiracy theories that Russians killed our president or his enemies planted a bomb on his plane in 2010. On the basis of that "sect" a force grew that governs Poland now. Anyone who says "But Trump just lies" doesn't understand the mechanism. (Hatred, mistrust, legitimate self-defense against "The Enemy", simple answers to all our fears... )
  5. One thing is clear to me - without COVID Trump would have been re-elected easily. MInd shattering as it is, it speaks VOLUMES about America. We should all give-up on this backwater, gun-filled shithole. Give-up in the sense of not counting on anything good to come out from there, and do our own thing, from defense to getting rid of our own populist imbeciles. I have to admit I had a certain soft spot for America - two World-wars, The Marshall plan, the Fall of the Evil Soviet Empire and all these cowboys in the sunset... I bow my head in shame. Even if Biden (the best candidate Dems could put out, shudders...) wins, he'll have the Senate and Court to limit his actions, and boy are actions needed to at least save some lives... Oh well... I sincerely hope that the number of additional coffins will not exceed half a million.
  6. How on earth so?? He will still be President until january 20, no? What will stop him from leaving USA???
  7. I woke up at night to take a piss, and thought - Oh well, I'll turn on the TV. Then I thought they were taking the piss. Shambolic shit-show.
  8. 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...
  9. 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;
  10. He doesn't need this knowledge to do his stuff. We do.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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."
  16. 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 pandemic (quick lockdown) has been rational and effective.
  17. Bolsonaro beats him hands down. Criminals, both of them. Imbecility is not an excuse, when you are in a position of power.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. This is all very strange. Can't pretend to understand.
  22. @ Doro - I vehemently disagree, but it's late, and the forum does strange things to my post. Will reply tomorrow.
  23. 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."
