What do you think about De Santis’ accepting of COVID relief and emergency funds when it suits him?
I think people of all sorts accept all kinds of things all the time.

Nice deflection.

Man, you're creepy.

Let me know when you are done ranting.

Thanks.

That's my secret.  I am always ranting.

Now why do you think rebuilding after a disaster with infrastructure designed to withstand the next disaster is inferior to slapping some plywood and grout on the potholes and moving on?
You believe Tom wrote something indicating he thinks this way?

You believe he didn’t???
Not necessarily.

Could you point out the specific sentence he wrote indicating he does think this way?

Why should I bother with you?
I just asked.

Your retort simply and eloquently demonstrates you have nothing and your entire train of thought regarding Tom and DeSantis is really just an Angry Rant.

Not surprising.

Coming from the guy who calls people AIs, this means nothing. What do you think about De Santis’ accepting of COVID relief and emergency funds when it suits him?

Sure.  And how long should that take Tom?  In your expert opinion on repair of major metropolitan transit systems?

Irrelevant. Funding intended for years down the line isn't an emergency.

In the aftermath of 9-11 emergency funding was needed for the people hurt and killed in the aftermath, but funding the construction of new towers and ongoing maintenance on those new towers wasn't an emergency.

The word emergency connotates an immediate serious need and multi-year funding projects for ongoing projects, improvements, etc, are not emergencies. It is more appropriate for those items to be outside of a bill labeled as an emergency.

That’s your opinion, we got it. Now why do you think rebuilding after a disaster with infrastructure designed to withstand the next disaster is inferior to slapping some plywood and grout on the potholes and moving on?

“Trying to make things to survive the next hurricane is dumb and a liberal hoax”

-Tom “Shillington” Bishop

Obviously 2 years might not be enough time to plan, contact and complete a massive infrastructure repair, but hey ho. Toss De Santis’ salad a little more; he is almost there.

Also worth noting that De Santis was happy to take federal funds for Coronavirus recovery, despite being one of the most flagrantly and intentionally careless stewards of pandemic responses. He’s a hypocritical shitbag.

One of the leading contenders for the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination, Ron DeSantis, is requesting federal funds for hurricane relief. Relief sorely needed and granted without question by Biden. However, Ron DeSantis did not want the same aid to be extended to other states. Classic GOP policy making. Hurt others and help yourselves.

This judge is trying to win the gold medal in mental gymnastics.

“I hate cancel culture, so I’m canceling them so they can’t cancel me.”

Trump did not send his best to the bench.

Why does anyone doubt that the some regions in eastern Ukraine would want to seperate themselves from the current Ukrainian government?  In 2014, the same government overthrew there Russian Guy who has since been in exile in Russia. ?

People are doubting the results of the referendum, not the possibility that separatists exist.

I haven't a clue what's true or not, but Russia reporting 98% voting in favor seems just a tad suspicious. I mean when in the world has anything like this legitimately resulted in 2% shy of 100%? I guess it could happen, but really, 98%?

Incorrect. It's 98% of those who voted, voted in favor of joining Russia.

Ummm, yeah, typically voters who voted are those who voted.

Did you want to make some sort of cogent point? If so, you may want to try again.

The point is that you phrased it as "Russia reporting 98% voting". This is incorrect phrasing and implied that 98% of the people voted in favor of Russia. It's really 98% of people who voted who voted in favor of Russia.

Everyone got his meaning. You are being uselessly pedantic

[quite]This connects to your remarks of absurdity. The people who loved Ukraine could simply have not voted or have already migrated out of the country or to the anti-Russia side of the country.

It is also possible that people simply side with Russia there and hate Zielinski based on social pressures there, much like how upwards of 98% of people hate pedophiles based on social norms and pressures.[/quote]

98% is an absurd election result you absolute troll. Comparing this to people’s views on pedophiles proves it.

Whatever the explanation, the point is that you were wrong about the phrasing of your remarks.

Everyone got the meaning, including you. Perhaps you should get back under the bridge?

That’s what he said. 98% voting in favour.

And by such overwhelming and compelling margins. I don’t see how anyone can support Ukraine anymore.

You pointed me to a bunch of policies and procedures none of which prohibited the proscribed action and then somehow decided being a smug prick was the best way to frame it. Enough internet for me today.

In each of those times we successfully avoided nuclear war.
I dunno, Putin is still saying he'll totally start a nuclear war. Postponing it while giving him time to grow stronger (regardless of whether he squandered it) doesn't seem to have worked out so far.

That’s part of the Russian hybrid warfare doctrine. They want to be seen as the unhinged crazy people who could fire off a nuke just for looking at them funny. They’ve built an entire narrative around it that a lot of people have bought. They want to get as much value out of their arsenal as humanly possible without actually using it.

According to the latest publicly available intelligence reports, it’s been business as usual for the world’s strategic forces.

Except that the White House has literally reached out to the Kremlin to warn them not to use nukes which is very far from business as usual.

I understand that they can just print money and if push comes to shove they can just do that to pay a debt. Lots of countries have done it and it’s ended terribly every time.

Given the US is not currently holding anything of real value, they go deeper into debt (aka unfunded liability).


You’ve written a lot of stupid things and this is one of them. How you can think the US holds nothing of value is comepletely beyond me.

The US produces their own funds. You know that right? Please tell me you know that.

Please explain how the US "produces their own funds".

You fucking dolt, they have a mint.

I don't see the relevance and I look forward to bringing "produces their own funds" to its logical conclusion where you realize that the US government cannot do that.

Let's use something simple: a gold coin. Say the US government wants to mint a gold coin. Where does it get the gold?

It’s a complete mystery. No one knows how to acquire gold. I hope you figure it out.

Going to take this as a sign that you figured out saying the US "produces their own funds" is complete nonsense...

Mints don’t make mints as you well know. The US, if it needs cash can literally print it.

Everyone knows how to acquire gold.

So do you.

So, where do you get your gold, if you were to want some?

If everyone knows, why don’t we just move on to the next part of the discussion?
Okay, the next part of the discussion is how you obtain it.

They are not giving it away, to my knowledge.

It’s truly a mystery. Best of luck figuring out this most enigmatic of problems.

People's obsession with Trump's dump truck of an arse is peak politics

Wouldn't have mentioned without the previous posts. Why aren't you asking the others why they were "obsessed" with Biden's lavatorial functions?

You are the literal god of whataboutism
