  1. 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]

    I do, a combination of decades long of indoctrination that socialism = communism, communism = the devil and democrats have policies that have at least a flavour of socialism. Thus they are the devil.

    Oh, and they are pro-abortus, thus also the devil;

     

    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... )


     

  3. 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.

    I knew soon as Trump said it, others would see the possible truth of a President being a flight risk. Being a dumbass, Trump has already sabotaged any chance flee the United States.

    How on earth so?? He will still be President until january 20, no? What will stop him from leaving USA???

    Did anyone bother to watch the "debate"? I couldn't bring myself to sit through Playground Dementia 101, but I've heard it was as pointless and embarrassing as I thought it would be.

    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.

    Did you see that they used this exact song to bring him out during his last airplane-hangar rally?  I kid you not.  People were wondering if his own staff was trolling him.

    I am unable to believe you, but then I am also unable to believe this photo from Trump rally in MAY 2020....

    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...

     

     

  7. 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;

     

     

     

     

     

     

  8. 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.

    I always thought America was a land of imbeciles, electing imbeciles. 

    This lady has class and clout. And would have my vote for whatever.

    His wife wrote an article in The Spectator about their London lock down even though they were not in London.

     

    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.

    Interview
    The coronavirus slayer! How Kerala's rock star health minister helped save it from Covid-19
    Laura Spinney
    KK Shailaja has been hailed as the reason a state of 35 million people has only lost four to the virus. Here’s how the former teacher did it


    On 20 January, KK Shailaja phoned one of her medically trained deputies. She had read online about a dangerous new virus spreading in China. “Will it come to us?” she asked. “Definitely, Madam,” he replied. And so the health minister of the Indian state of Kerala began her preparations.

    Four months later, Kerala has reported only 524 cases of Covid-19, four deaths and – according to Shailaja – no community transmission. The state has a population of about 35 million and a GDP per capita of only £2,200. By contrast, the UK (double the population, GDP per capita of £33,100) has reported more than 40,000 deaths, while the US (10 times the population, GDP per capita of £51,000) has reported more than 82,000 deaths; both countries have rampant community transmission.

    As such, Shailaja Teacher, as the 63-year-old minister is affectionately known, has attracted some new nicknames in recent weeks – Coronavirus Slayer and Rockstar Health Minister among them. The names sit oddly with the merry, bespectacled former secondary school science teacher, but they reflect the widespread admiration she has drawn for demonstrating that effective disease containment is possible not only in a democracy, but in a poor one.

    How has this been achieved? Three days after reading about the new virus in China, and before Kerala had its first case of Covid-19, Shailaja held the first meeting of her rapid response team. The next day, 24 January, the team set up a control room and instructed the medical officers in Kerala’s 14 districts to do the same at their level. By the time the first case arrived, on 27 January, via a plane from Wuhan, the state had already adopted the World Health Organization’s protocol of test, trace, isolate and support.

    As the passengers filed off the Chinese flight, they had their temperatures checked. Three who were found to be running a fever were isolated in a nearby hospital. The remaining passengers were placed in home quarantine – sent there with information pamphlets about Covid-19 that had already been printed in the local language, Malayalam. The hospitalised patients tested positive for Covid-19, but the disease had been contained. “The first part was a victory,” says Shailaja. “But the virus continued to spread beyond China and soon it was everywhere.”

    In late February, encountering one of Shailaja’s surveillance teams at the airport, a Malayali family returning from Venice was evasive about its travel history and went home without submitting to the now-standard controls. By the time medical personnel detected a case of Covid-19 and traced it back to them, their contacts were in the hundreds. Contact tracers tracked them all down, with the help of advertisements and social media, and they were placed in quarantine. Six developed Covid-19.

    Another cluster had been contained, but by now large numbers of overseas workers were heading home to Kerala from infected Gulf states, some of them carrying the virus. On 23 March, all flights into the state’s four international airports were stopped. Two days later, India entered a nationwide lockdown.

    At the height of the virus in Kerala, 170,000 people were quarantined and placed under strict surveillance by visiting health workers, with those who lacked an inside bathroom housed in improvised isolation units at the state government’s expense. That number has shrunk to 21,000. “We have also been accommodating and feeding 150,000 migrant workers from neighbouring states who were trapped here by the lockdown,” she says. “We fed them properly – three meals a day for six weeks.” Those workers are now being sent home on charter trains.


    etc....

    ....


    ....


    Once the second wave has passed – if, indeed, there is a second wave – these teachers will return to schools. She hopes to do the same, eventually, because her ministerial term will finish with the state elections a year from now. Since she does not think the threat of Covid-19 will subside any time soon, what secret would she like to pass on to her successor? She laughs her infectious laugh, because the secret is no secret: “Proper planning.”

    Jedy - Case closed.

    Ip, but if it's a choice between Trump or Biden, then the latter is the lesser of two evils, just like Trump was against Hillary.

    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.

    P.S. - Much as I hate (with reasons) the current Polish regime, its reaction to the pandemic (quick lockdown) has been rational and effective.

    When listening to Trump give speeches or press briefings the only thing that comes to mind is "huh?"  He's incoherent.

    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.

    What, racism?

    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.

    No idea what you're even trying to say here. But if you're actually wondering what's turning people to degeneracy, it's the degeneracy of culture. People don't have any self-respect, respect for others, or respect of their surroundings, and each generation gets worse because the standard will inevitably slip as parents pass on a less strict version of their own upbringing. It's always someone else's fault, some excuse that's not on their shoulders as to why they're the way they are. No introspection. No attempts at self-improvement. Just whiny self-destruction. That article is just another example of the shitty "permissivism" (because it's not progression) that's poisoning our culture, where everyone should be free to do whatever they like without ridicule to try to deal with the nonsense idea that people are just victims in their own lives.

    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."

    @ Doro - I vehemently disagree, but it's late, and the forum does strange things to my post. Will reply tomorrow.
