    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    Perfect example of the blue-anon narrative, in a mainstream media outlet, calling the other echo-chamber crazy.

    Perhaps they should point their conspiracy theory detector at themselves.

    It's amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.

    I think it comes down to whether Americans want a liberal democracy or rule by the people.

    Obviously, the Republicans are the least popular and what's popular in important. They have won by being critical toward everyone except white males. If you don't believe it, listen to Rush Limbaugh and Jerry Falwell in the 1990's.

    If most people want abortion, same sex marriage, equal protection and rights for black and brown plus females, and guns, that's how it should be if most want it.

    Trump knows his base and he is trying to expand it. Abortion being gone, the Evangelicals are happy. They may be even less inclined to vote. Their interest in taking care of mothers and children through government assistance and to provide free birth control may not be of interest.

    Given that Fluffy has issued nearly 100 Executive Orders appears that Dems can deliver neither.

    Grossly misinformed.

    There was an oped a few weeks ago about how Republicans used a strategy of personal attacks using name calling to win elections. It’s been effective for some demographics. Sounds like your one for which it is effective. 😂

    Oh, gosh, Chuck. You are right!! He has only signed 98.
    You can stick your "misinformed" oped where the sun doesn't shine. My source is the Federal Register. Read it and weep!

    From Maureen Dowd, “Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, long entwined, continue on vile parallel paths: They would rather destroy their countries than admit they have lost.”.

    Oddly, some here see it differently. Humans have an amazing capacity to look at the same things and come to varying perspectives.

    God should have give girls balls. At least they know how to use them. More from Maureen.
    “America has its own history of lying itself into wars, in Vietnam and Iraq, for example, and then prolonging the killing of young soldiers as a sop to male politicians’ egos. Now it’s Russia’s turn.”

    In the end, the Trumpian here are attempting to save face. What should be a red face has been replaced with pseudo swagger or bull shit.

    More from Maureen,
    “Just when you thought he couldn’t go lower, Trump said “Hold my Diet Coke.” He shared an image of himself sporting a “Q” pin, for QAnon, and has been reposting more QAnon garbage on his store-brand social media site.

    It would be poetic justice to think the walls were closing in on Putin and Trump at the same time, because at some point, all this will become unsustainable. Losers, refusing to admit defeat.”

    You don't think that a centrist would see QANON as dangerously conspiratorial?

    ‘Somebody Planted the Guns’: In Canada, a Raided, Distrusting Village Blames the Police

    When a cache of weapons was found in a tiny Canadian village that has become a symbol of the far right, it didn’t take long for new conspiracy theories to start circulating.

    Catherine Porter
    Sept. 24, 2022

    COUTTS, Alberta — The village’s only restaurant offers smiles and two pamphlets, one denouncing Covid-19 vaccines for children, the other saying the United Nations’ mission includes creating a “microchipped society” for “tracking and controlling.”

    So pervasive is the belief here that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a dictator-in-the-making that even a top official in the village admits she “may have” a flag telling Canada’s leader where to go — rudely.

    And many residents of the village, Coutts, Alberta, think the biggest event that occurred here in recent memory — when the police raided a local home in February and revealed a frightening cache of weapons — was a hoax perpetrated by the police to silence an antigovernment protest.

    “It may have been a conspiracy,” said Bill Emerson, who for four decades has lived across the street from the home the police raided. The weapons gave the government a pretext for suspending civil liberties, he said. “Maybe somebody planted the guns.”



    The police raid came during the time of Canada’s Freedom Convoy, which began as a movement by truckers to challenge a government vaccination mandate but spread to include a wide array of antigovernment grievances. Seven months after the police made the dramatic weapons’ seizure in Coutts, and after the protesters who had been dug into the village for 17 days reluctantly pulled away in their trucks and tractors, the Freedom Convoy is still here — in spirit and philosophy.

    The stark contrast between the mainstream account of what happened — the police disarming a small group of protesters with violent intentions — and the conspiracy-fueled one — a government attempt to demonize the protesters — reflects a burgeoning polarization of Canadian society and a deepening of far-right ideology and misinformation. Both trends were supercharged by the coronavirus, but neither has weakened as the pandemic subsides.

    The Freedom Convoy movement — that aimed at one point to replace the federal government with a ruling committee including protesters, and which Mr. Trudeau dismissed as a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views” — is hardly a fringe. Months later, it garners the support of one in four Canadians, according to a recent poll, and some of its beliefs have entered mainstream politics.

    At 6'4" and 230 pounds, I'd properly be a macro-chip.

    Being huge and dangerous-looking, I don't need to carry a chickenshit gun.
