In the regiment I remember, insults were part of the game and great pride was taken to give as well as you get and no mercy was shown to anyone with thin skin.

In the end; I would rather argue with someone who disagrees with me than listen to some sycophant tell me I'm the best.
Agreed.

I guess Mr? will be back in two years to drop another grenade in the toilet and run away before it explodes.

I’m still waiting on his list of “actual crimes” the President has committed as President but I doubt he’s going to find any. Maybe he double parked the “Beast” at Daytona or forgot to sign a document giving away his salary...

God forbid they try to charge him with committing murder of all the people who have died with Covid, or we are going to have hold every past and future president with “high crimes and misdemeanors” for wars declared or not on other sovereign countries and the ensuing death tolls that come from those.

And it’s cool that we can agree to disagree and listen to another persons POV without calling him names or hurling insults at each other.

Peace Brother...

I found this interview Joe Rogan did with Tulsi Gabbard refreshing and a glimmer of hope. She certainly is reflecting my views regarding representation. It begs the question: Is it greed and lust for power that pulls the chains?

Exactly, conservatives need to quit depending on other sources which obviously will not deliver. 75,000,000 Trump voters looking for a place to land. This would be a golden opportunity for the "Right" people.

I see an outstanding business opportunity for Elon Musk.

I'm waiting for him to be charged/impeached for the speach he gave.
Should open the door for every politician who expressed support or directly provided support for the riots to be charged as well.

The pendulum swings both ways and cuts deeper each time.

I'm not sure why all of the scenarios assume secession. The county by county map indicates, and the Nov 3rd election probably proved, that we are not that divided. We should be protesting for honest elections. The Left had to work very hard to steal this election and that's how they got caught. In an election where it's 51% to 49%, the amount of cheating is easily hidden or explained away. But, when it's 70% to 30%, it's hard to explain a 141% total voter turnout. That's pretty much what happened.

That's it in a very nicely sculptured nutshell. I'm sure WI isn't the only state that - for quite awhile - will get colored 'blue' on the maps that illiterate "network kids with krayons" prepare, just because of the results from 2 cities. 3x R Gov., current bi-cameral R legislature and Trump once and Trump stolen... the truth is in states like that, only in someone's fantasy are there clean lines along which to divide. The algorithm wasn't going to do the job so "Midnight Special" USB stick to the rescue. And some people in those cities are alive only because it's against the law to shoot them. That damned civility thing again.

But the war is on.
Many, many trolls. There was one post I read supposedly posted by the First Lady (not) she and Mrs Biden were exchanging shots. Obviously fake, haven't checked in yet to see if it was deleted.

They'll need a lot of admins to police the site no doubt the demoncrats will be trying to destroy it.

A little good news today...CNN will pull its network from airports on March 31, 2021. Ending decades of misinformation to the public!

Fu*king Hell’s Yeah!


(Unless MSNBC replaces it...)

He has the resources and daring to start up server systems and social media which competes with big tech.
There is a substantial market share which is being foolishly discarded.

This is how Fox News grew so quickly.

Money is money.
If Musk were to chase this, investors would flock to it.
