Okay that is just the most batshit answer you could give. First as previously mentioned, not all women can take the pill for a wide range of reasons. Second, where the actual flying fuck is the respon

False equivalence, because it implies everyone has to be equally as ignorant as you are.

Back early in this thread Almagnus wanted us to take a test so he could adjust his responses. I am no fool. A person of conviction doesn't amend their opinions based on what others say. Its been more

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;

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...

This guy would have never survived a Mueller investigation testifying in person.

The guy talks shit his whole life and in 2016 when questioned under oath, expects to not be held accountable for those same words. In the end, Trump lost and paid $25 million and was ok with that as long as he could admit no wrong doing.

Now we can see 1st hand why his attorneys try to keep him off the stand at all cost.

"Prince Harry urges US citizens to 'reject hate speech' and vote in the presidential election"

Does this count as foreign "hacking" of an election, or is it only limited to memes on Facebook?

Well, he lives in the USA and no part of the UK Royal house anymore. And I guess his wife can/will vote in the elections; Though I don't understand why you flee away from BorisJohnson and then choose the USA ;)

Well, I hope for the Americans here that a miracle happens and neither of those becomes your next president;

you’ve got 300+ million citizens and these 2 are the best there is?

Biden won the nomination because he was the safest choice.  The other front runners were too progressive.  Unfortunately, beating Trump is incredibly important and necessary.  Democrats are pussies and prefer to keep it safe.  That's why we'll never have a transformative President.  They wanted to attract as many white suburbanites as they could and having some left wing "extremist" would have handed Trump the election.  Biden isn't the best there is, he's the one that is most likely to return the country to some semblance of normal.

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.

Watched it. No hot takes to offer, only tepid room temperature takes.

Trump looked like he expected to wing it but was rattled his opponent came more prepared than anticipated.

Biden strategy was obviously to minimize Biden's verbal stumbles, resulting in him sticking implacably to pre-formulated talking points even when those didn't address the questions directly, making himself sound vague and slippery like the politician he is. Looking into camera addressing people at home was a cheap copout from actually engaging those present at debate itself. Overall, a calculated emphasis on reactive mirroring and punitive affection-withholding to mask a lack of substance. Nothing proactive, just vampiric feeding off others.

Biden's mental hiccups briefly slipped through in a couple of moments - was eerie to notice, like a machine suddenly sputtering but getting an instant power boost. Uncanny valley.

Trump strategy was obviously to derail Biden and get him to gaffe, but in so doing he ended up derailing himself the entire time, contradicting/abandoning his own talking points while reacting on the fly and sounding like his own twitter feeds. This blunt dynamic energy could've worked on lively agitated opponents, but with Biden's pre-formulated script it had nowhere to go but in circles. The very few moments Trump lowered his voice to talk conversationally he was on the threshold of coming across as approachable and sensible, but the sensible points he was making were soon lost in the fray of his own word salad. Expected him to play smarter or at least bully smarter, was disappointed at how easily he was strung along. That's what you get for underestimating your opponent's advisory board.

Overall, free popcorn entertainment of dystopian vaudeville. Surprised it wasn't on pay-per-view with this much sleaze tbh.

The highlight of the night was Chris Wallace's relishing in his role of moderating Trump and their sexual tension throughout
