I 'will' challenge you on the personally insulting comments claim, though.

Interference is not a sarcasm-free zone, and smug comments used to be posted on some forums 24/7, when there was better traffic. It's part of the appeal of this U2 site, and particularly Fym. I do my best not to get personal, going on 17 years around here.

I care about what is happening at the border. Haitian people being treated like animals by "officers" on horses is appalling and against everything the US used to stand for.

Don't know what the hell is going on-isn't VP Harris supposed to be "in charge" of the border crisis?

Democrats claimed all kinds of moral superiority over Trump regarding border issues. That's really looking like an epic fail now-there is no excuse for it.

Sarcasm and smug is often used here as a disguise for what is really personally insulting. In the many years I have been around here I didn't care for that, and I don't now. The end.

Regardless of these people taking power, which would be bad, pretty much every election for the next decade or two will be fought by judges.

This seems unsustainable for democracy in long run.

US Politics XXXIII: Get Inoculated!

It seems like the previous administration trying to overthrow the will of the people should be a bigger story than missing white girls or anything else besides Covid.

Trump Admin and their lawyers, servants, etc literally tried everything. Lawsuits, this crazy six step outline, and violence

You’re right, it’s not your place to do so, and it would’ve been nice if you could still say you’ve never used the term.

Yeah, I do hear you, Dieman.

It was the "Reparations" for Slave owners I couldn't abide.

Mary Trump Pulls No Punches When Naming Her ‘Stupidest’ Relative

Thu, September 23, 2021

Mary Trump was asked “what the hell is going on” with her cousin, Donald Trump Jr., and didn’t hold back.

In this week’s episode of the “UnPresidented” podcast, Donald Trump’s niece described her cousin as “weak” and a suck-up who was ultimately “left in the dust” by his father, the former president.

Trump Jr. is “like many other people in my family,” said Mary Trump, a psychologist who has become one of the fiercest critics of her uncle and his children. “He has no core. He has no ideology.”

Donald Trump Jr. will “out-racism anybody, he’ll out-misogyny anybody, he’ll shoot as many innocent animals as possible to get whatever passes for affection in my family,” she continued.

“Donnie is a deeply unintelligent person. I’ve been asked this, who’s the stupidest one, and it’s him,” added Mary Trump.

It's fair to point out a president's dopey adult kid.

Try googling 'hunter biden laptop' and 'hunter biden libya' soon. Choose your own news outlet.

I think the difference between Hunter Biden and Donald Trump Jr. is that Jr. was a prominent member of his father’s administration. It’s not clear to me that Hunter Biden is involved at all in the Biden administration.

The point there is that even if you have legitimate criticisms of him, there’s a routine attempt to associate Hunter Biden to Joe Biden’s presidency. That does work for Jr., it doesn’t work for Hunter.

It does seem particularly cruel to go after one of a man’s few surviving children after he’s buried two of them, especially one who has never sought political influence, doesn’t pick fights on Twitter, or cuts deals with the Chinese government for clothing lines.

But the cruelty is the point.

Ah Hunter...the new Hillary's emails. Even in response to an innocuous post.

Don Jr is dumb as a box of rocks, and was probably not given a WH job because he's not as attractive on the outside as Ivanka. Also because his own father reportedly isn't fond of him.

I have complete empathy for dysfunctional families, but not when the head honcho has his finger on the button ( yes I know that's not real) and the WH is nepotism central. Don Jr would be much better served by therapy vs lashing out at others constantly on Twitter and slaughtering animals.
