I'm sorry, but... *shakes head*

Until men and women compete in sports together, on equal footing, the premise of this article is pure uncut bullshit.

There are reasons we don't have female linebackers in the NFL, reasons why there is a WNBA separate from the regular NBA, and that is that women's and men's bodies are fundamentally different, and that difference is determined at birth, not whenever whoever decides to choose what gender they want to be.

They're seriously saying that this isn't supported by science?  ::)

Here in the Netherlands, we recently got a quarter of the population vaccinated. It should be available to my age group sometime in June, at which point I will get it as soon as possible so I can put all this funny business behind me.

Wow, you guys are behind. I've had both shots and will be fully vaccinated as of tomorrow.

Y'all laugh and laugh as Tom trolls the upper forums for decades but then he comes down below and suddenly he's spr srs? Come on. I would expect this from Dave, but you can do better garygreen.

We all need our fun.

When a troll makes someone as angry as he made you recently who's the one having fun? 🤔

Technically both.
I'm pretty sure I'm an argument masochist. 

Besides, its rare I get to blow off steam with actual swear words. (Kids do that to ya) And I did feel a little better after I told him off.

That being said, I know he was laughing cause he triggered me but I do not care.

The thing is, as a troll, he's motivated by getting as strong a reaction out of those he interacts with as possible. He says these outlandish things purely for the game of it, not out of any actual belief or conviction. I mean, you're basically arguing with a ventriloquist's dummy. You really get enjoyment from that?

And look at that huge drop last year when Trump was in charge. Trump had the ball and he dropped it massively.

Who in God's name would want to reelect a president who presided over one of the worst economic periods in our history? It's no wonder we legitimately and democratically elected a replacement after just one term!

Also gas prices are unusually high right now because of that pipeline hack. There was definitely a period during Trump's presidency that prices were way higher than $1.95. I guess if you cherrypick the way Tom's source is doing you can make the data say whatever you want it to.

I'm sure Trump will be occupying the Oval Office any day now, lol

It is almost as if you are ignoring that things over the past months things have ramped up from witness accusations to multiple state forensic audits now, and that you think that the people of America are going to put on a big fight to keep your geezer Joe around.



No, you're right. Things have certainly ramped up lol. I'm certain we'll see Biden relinquish his office to Trump any day now lol 😂

If Cyber Ninjas and the auditors in the other states are committing fraud, I can't wait for them to go to jail.

Certainly, the person whining and excuse-making and coming up with conspiracies here without evidence is you.

And yet look who's in the White House, huh?

Why do people still care about what this guy says? Has it become obvious to anyone else that he loves the media spotlight and is just saying the most sensational stuff possible to bathe in it a bit longer?

People who aren't friends with Israel have a pretty bad track record so I'm glad we are allied with them.

So we should look the other way at their regular violations of human rights because we don't like the people who don't like them? Wow, compelling argument dude.  ::)

The US attitude towards Israel has always been ridiculous. We prop ourselves up as champions of human rights and supposedly condemn any nation that doesn't respect human rights, at the same time that we support a country capable of and responsible for atrocities as reprehensible as any other terrorist organizations in the region. A country that imposed its will on hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, telling them they no longer had a home, had to find a new place to live, sorry, and refuses to offer a reasonable compromise even decades later.

It's been a general principle on both sides for a long time that criticizing Israel for any reason was to be decried as antisemitic, the better to avoid having to justify supporting a country whose entire existence revolves around violating the human rights of others. Thank God that seems to be changing to some degree on the Left.

And I thought the same thing when I saw Biden make that comment about running over the reporter. Trump would have been roasted if he had said something like that. This is what I was saying all along during Trump's presidency. You make the bias so obvious, so all-encompassing, that it opens the door to claims that Republicans are treated unfairly in the media, which is only amplified by the Right and allows millions of Americans to fall behind chants of "FAKE NEWS"! Who the fuck can you trust anymore?

Point is, this is very clearly not related to the 2020 election so how the hell did anyone fall for it?

Oh, those gullible Republicans!

https://www.businessinsider.com/republicans-threaten-leave-gop-if-doesnt-split-trump-2021-5

More than 100 Republicans who are no longer relevant to politics have threatened to leave the GOP and form a 3rd party if the GOP doesn't split from Trump.

I'm sure this will have a huge impact. /sarcasm

If the government is paying me enough to live, then work be damned.

Yep, there's the problem.

I believe you that you're lazy. It doesn't surprise me really. But most people have aspirations for more than the bare minimum to survive. Indeed, that's why capitalism is supposed to work in the first place.
I think you are totally missing the point.

I am not most people.

I work every day.

Nobody is paying me to stay home and not work.

But most people are not, because as I pointed out earlier, a couple making twice the median income in the US by not working will not work for less.

I get paid about the median income in the US.

I have a house, two cars, a few Thork-like sport bikes, a couple of guitars, and riding mower to take care of the grounds.

But I work for it because I want those things.

When I don't want them anymore, I will work enough to get what I want.

I don't believe anyone owes me a goddamn thing, unlike you.

Hmm. I'm trying to square this away with your claim that you wouldn't work if the government paid you to do nothing. I assume you recognize that you wouldn't be able to afford all those things on the government till.

So you felt it important to work hard to get those things, but if the government was paying you the bare minimum to survive you wouldn't have and would have just been content sitting home, doing nothing and owning nothing of value?  ???

That's just weird, lackey. Again I don't think most people feel the same way.

Notice he says "erased". Not "cancelled". Because cancel culture is totally evil and purely a liberal thing, but having your political enemies erased is perfectly fine, nothing wrong with that, THEY'RE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS OKAY??

And speaking about erasing political enemies totally isn't imagery reminiscent of Stalin-era Communist purges. No not at all.
