Once again you beat me to it. I was going to point out the party press back in the 1700s (at least they were upfront about it).
@Sixgun77 Eh, I give you the credit. I only beat you to it only because I found the question first. Otherwise you would have had the honors. Great minds think alike, I guess. Thanks, though.
You're welcome. I also like that you quoted Washington (my favorite president by a mile). I hope you're OK down in D. C. I'm holed up at my girlfriend's place in Bel Air.
@Sixgun77 Glad to hear you are well. Given that I work primarily out of my home anyhow, other than the irritation of being run out of the grocery store today because I was not wearing a mask - I explained that masks make me look fat - it has not been bad. More quality time with my girlfriend and my little Munchkins, if we have to have a national nervous breakdown, I can live with it - even if I doubt the country can.
Enjoy the family time. I'm far more furious than scared. I'm hearing echos of 911 and the subsequent patriot act. I refuse to accept what I hear being touted as "the new normal". It was bad enough that Americans allowed the patriot act, I shudderr to think what we'll rush to give up permanently in the coming months.
@Sixgun77 Well, I am not quite as libertarian as you are, being much more in the Burkean tradition, but certainly things are going beyond prudence and common sense. That said, I am not unsympathetic to your irritation. In fact, here is the most immediate piece I have written on the subject - but there are plenty of others given the site has been overrun by the discussion on the site: Are you skeptical about anything to do with COVID-19? ↗That said, in the grand tradition of Rahm Emannuel - Never let a crisis go to waste. So as I say, more time with the family. I'll make do.
You are wrong, simply look at fox News reports, then look at unedited reports... Complete fake news, I'm not saying his perfect, but he is no where near as shit as other countries. Have a look at Sout Africa as a good example of how bad government can be.
If we’re a journalist, I wouldn’t make up anything because I wouldn’t have to. Trumps own words gives enough content to work with. I’d dissect his tweets and his briefings, translating through the bs, and break it down to summarize what he’s saying. Sure he’s not the worst leader in the world but some contempt for him is justified.
Agreed. Would you have done anything different in his shoes at the time he made the decisions he did? Remeber congress was against him shutting down...
@TigerRSA I don't know about @MzAsh, but I'd have followed the recommendations from Presidents Bush and Obama, for a start.
Bush yes, he spoke about preparation for a pandemic, Obama was well spoken and educated, but did nothing for unemployment. He ousouced and imported more... Took jobs away from Americans.
@TigerRSA Wow. It's probably untrue (I can't be bothered to look it up), and what does it have to do with pandemics?
By the way:www.fic.nih.gov/.../...sident-obama-nih-visit.aspx"Obama stressed the importance of investing in research for the long term. "If and when a new strain of flu, like the Spanish flu, crops up five years from now or a decade from now, we've made the investment and we're further along to be able to catch it," he said. "It is a smart investment for us to make. It's not just insurance; it is knowing that down the road we're going to continue to have problems like this - particularly in a globalized world where you move from one side of the world to the other in a day.""
See that's your problem, not bothered to look things up, just follow blindly... This debate has become mute. Enjoy
@TigerRSA Moot, dumbass, and Obama did address pandemics, and Trump ignored 15 years of experience.
Obama did nothing about it you stupid cunt. Words... No action... Just like your mouth.
P. Sthanks for the correction. at least something you have done that has contributed.
All media are corrupted with their own political and religious ideas... Let facts do not disturb a story. 😇
@TigerRSA She's right. The media report. The American news on Trump is accurate, save for most the coddling, ass-kissing offerings of Fox News and like right-wing outlets.

The media report. The news on Trump has been accurate. The problem isn't with the media. It's with Americans.
Presenting facts is lying to many Americans. Got it.
Not sure how you got that out of my opinion. The media is biased, always has been in America. The difference is that within the last century they've started claiming otherwise.
Journalism became a profession since the 1700s. Then, if you had money and an axe to grind, you wrote and published. Journalism's heyday was the 1920s through to the 1980s when attribution was a must and every story was vetted and edited. Since the advent of the internet thousands of newspaper journalists are out of work, hundreds of newspapers gone, largely replaced by bloggers, writers with an axe to grind, writing from their mother's basement, who have a loyal fan base.
It would help if you graduated high school.
Please, show me one of these articles calling him racist for the travel ban. All I've been able to find is Trump saying he was called racist.
You get paid to post that way on here. LOL As I've said many times, go to ANY fact check organization, not Rush Limbaugh, if you want to see what's fake or real. Snopes, Politifact, the BBC. There's NEVER a reason to make up "shit" about Trump... he feeds it to you, free of charge! LMFAO. If you're a reporter, all you have to do is wait till tomorrow, there' more shit coming !
Same. First I heard it was from Donald Trump. Apparently the media wasn't kissing the ring. Or his ass.
Hahahahahaahaaaa!!! Gimme a fucking break... talk about desperately grasping at straws!! Sex abuse? That’s funny especially considering PREZ PUSSY GRABBER actually ADMITTED IT ON FUCKING TAPE.
Got it, so sex abuse alligations are only valid against the opposite party...Funny how the #metoo creator now believes in due process for men accused, only after her pretty boy Biden got accused.Biden is just as much as a creep as Trump. Stop being blinded by your undying allegiance to the DNC.
You only post about trump, why?
I like him and think he’s a good President
I’m not the only one who noticed apparently! JABBA is likely A RUSSIAN BOT or something. ALL HE DOES HERE is SUCK TRUMPS shriveled VIENNA SAUSAGE & kiss HIS ASS
@Tamera952 yup pretty much everyday about 2 or 3 new posts with no facts to back up
