  1. This brings up something I’ve noticed for years. In today’s day and age, nearly all demographics or groups of people are protected. You know the whole social justice warrior culture. We’ve got racism, xenophobia, homophobia, etc. There are words used to describe malice towards religious people as well like islamophobia and anti-Semitic. Christians are fair game though. Nobody blinks an eye when someone like @TheNewGazmo overtly denigrates Christians. It certainly shows what kind of person you are dealing with.
  2. This article doesn’t give death rates. Most articles don’t…. So, I poked around the CDC website and looked at the number of daily deaths due to COVID. In January there were days where upwards of 4000 deaths occurred. We are currently seeing 100 to 400 per day across the country. In the last 7 days the CDC website says 1999 people died due to COVID. It also says the death rate per 100,000 is roughly half of a percent. I’m glad I’m a Texan and I’m glad Gov Abbott is standing firm against lockdowns.
  3. I’ve pointed it out before…. Deny, deny, counter accuse. It’s a classic technique used by the left.
  4. Meh. Add him to the long list of sell outs. And it’s not a Trump thing for me. It’s that he’s the latest in modern politics to do what’s best for him. Modern politics 101. These people don’t work for us. They work for themselves. He’s been tactful in the way he got the spotlight and he’s found a way to stay in it. Tears and all.
  5. This is exactly what I would like to see. A conservative that can highlight all the BS going on, bring us together and articulate a vision for the future but do it in a professional, mature and presidential manner. The unfortunate reality is, the only type person that can highlight the BS, fight back and fight hard against the system, deep state, media, big tech, etc is a disruptor. That type of person would have all the character flaws that Trump has. It’s how a billionaire real estate tycoon from NYC who is a ego maniac got elected. He was the only one willing to walk into the room slinging elbows and throwing punches. It was hard to watch at times but again, that’s the only personality type that has the balls to do it. Anyone and everyone else just gets run over. Nobody had ever looked at Hillary Clinton and said “you’d be in jail” on national tv. She’d never been talked to like that in her entire life. Some squeaky clean conservative damn sure would never have done it.
  6. I realize this was in Iraq. Similar situation though.
  7. You are seeing the classic deny, deny, counter-accuse tactic used on this thread by some on the left. They’ve denied CRT exists. They’ve denied CRT is being taught in schools. And they’ve followed up with a irrelevant creationism argument. Teaching creationism or personal finance has absolutely nothing to do with CRT. It’s all about the pivot when you know you can’t defend your side’s position. CRT is the next step in the process of demonizing straight white men. It’s designed to create division and resentment for future generations. I’ve said in previous comments that we’ve gone from Nazi’s to white supremacists to now the entire country and system is based on oppression and racism. As some have pointed out, CRT isn’t about simply teaching history - the good and the bad. It’s about creating a narrative that our country is fundamentally flawed and must be changed. And it was exposed because of COVID. Parents were able to listen to what their kids teachers were saying while on classroom zoom calls. I’m glad parents are standing up to this garbage. I think we are going to see a lot more people pushing back, in many different arenas and over many different topics. The progressive left is absolutely out of control. This is all becoming an argument of right vs wrong or good vs evil and not just differing political views.

  9. This article was written in March. It’s only gotten worse from there. https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/biden-immigration-policies-cause-predictable-border-crisis-why-didn-t-ncna1260992
  10. Yep. I live in the DFW metroplex. I see it all the time. Libs have ruined literally everything they’ve touched. Please don’t California my Texas.
  11. It sure is interesting listening to politicians in DC talk about the increase in violent crime going on across the country. Biden’s tired and confused presser on the issue was really hard to watch. We are going after rogue gun dealers…. I had no idea that the ATF or FBI had never gone after rogue gun dealers before. It certainly isn’t hard to understand or to predict this if you’re willing to be honest about it. When Democrat politicians create a culture of crime via a defund the police movement, demonize law enforcement officers, do away with cash bail, incentivize single parenthood, decline to prosecute criminals, create martyrs/heroes out of life long violent thugs, etc you are going to see a sharp increase in crime. And innocent people will suffer. And our country will continue to fall apart. I can’t imagine pairing the message and behavior of Democrat politicians with policies that would make it harder for law abiding citizens to protect themselves. Scary stuff.
  12. I appreciate the answer. Others here have pointed out that Biden is taking credit for things that were in the works before he took office. Infrastructure has become the latest example of Dems manipulating language. They intentionally use the word infrastructure knowing that a majority of people would support fixing bridges, roads and airports. But, when you get into it, you hear about things like “human infrastructure”, “healthcare is infrastructure” and “child care is infrastructure”. It’s just another attempt to spend trillions of dollars on social projects paid for by tax increases on the wealthy. The goalposts are constantly shifting. It’s never enough. And it all starts with language. It’s being done with race. Notice how white males aren’t being called Nazi’s anymore? It moved on to white supremacists for a while. Now, just being white is the problem. It’s absurd. It’s been done with drugs. We are going to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes. Now, I can’t walk around downtown without smelling so much weed that I worry I’m going to pop hot on a drug test. It’s why I was opposed to the repeal of DOMA. It’s not because I have a problem with gay people. It was because I knew what would happen next. The end game was never about two gay people trying to live out a normal life through marriage. It was about the sliding scale of gender, trans, pronouns, etc. Look where we are now. It never stops and it’s never enough. There are plenty of other issues that we can not bend on knowing there is no end game. The goal posts will never stop shifting. Gun rights, abortion and climate change are a few that come to mind.
  13. I would genuinely like to hear from a Biden supporter on this thread. I’d like to hear how they think things are going and what their perspective is. I’m trying to find reasons to be hopeful for this administration but I’m not having much luck.
  14. https://www.yourcentralvalley.com/news/local-news/pilot-killed-in-crash-at-porterville-airport-identified/ I didn’t know him nor am I part of the Eagle community. Regardless, I am saddened. I hate the idea of someone getting the knock on the door or the phone call. I’m sure some here knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and his family. To him...
  15. My original post that you quoted spoke of distractions from the abortion argument. And we are talking about mass shootings.
  16. You think pro gun folks don’t have the courage or intellectual honesty to condemn mass shootings? I’m struggling to understand the connection here.
  17. Manipulating words or language is a key tool in promoting agendas. There are lots of examples of this like global warming/climate change, gun control/gun safety, woman/birthing people or words used to intentionally confuse the topic of gender. The abortion argument is no different. You can see it in words or phrases like unwanted pregnancy vs abortion or any of the terms used to describe life other than baby or human, etc. Pro-abortion people know that abortion takes a life. They just choose to direct the conversation somewhere else because most people don’t have the courage or intellectual honesty to just say that they believe in abortion for convenience whether it kills a baby or not. I’d have more respect for their argument if they did. Arguments like rape, incest or even the health of the mother are just distractions. The vast vast number of abortions are simply out of convenience. And with the progress made in medicine, the baby is delivered early or operated on in the womb. I’ve got a buddy who has a daughter who was born at 24 weeks due to the mother’s pre-eclampsia. She’s a normal healthy 6 year old now. I never really gave much thought to abortion one way or another until I saw her in the NICU. Seeing that completely changed my view.
  18. BLM, teachers unions,Twitter, Facebook, ANTIFA, the media, etc...
  19. Don’t forget that the city paid the Floyd family 27 million dollars during jury selection. 2 jurors were removed at that point if I remember correctly. What I don’t understand is the racial component. All of the civil unrest is fueled by the narrative that, once again, we have a white cop killing a unarmed black man because he was black. That’s all our President and Vice President spoke of during their remarks. Most of the high profile race baiters were standing with Floyd’s family during their presser. It’s talked about so much that people don’t even question it. In reality, there is zero evidence at all that this was racially motivated. There were no hate crimes alleged or charged. The prosecution said it was Chauvin’s ego that killed Floyd. Even with zero evidence of a racially motivated crime it’s the center of the focus of everything you hear. I thought Biden and Harris’s comments were some of the most irresponsible comments ever made by someone at their level. I really do. It adds fuel to country that is already incredibly divided. It completely erased any efforts - which they haven’t made - to bring the country together and to heal. It adds a ton of weight to the anti cop narrative being pushed. Not to mention, it gives credibility to those race hustlers who push these false narratives. Chauvin’s actions were inexcusable. Focusing on a made up racial component of the situation takes the thought and energy away from the legitimate police reform we should be focusing on, like more funding and more training.
  20. https://www.rt.com/usa/521381-maxine-waters-brooklyn-center-curfew/ Maxine Waters shows up in MN encouraging people to be more confrontational. Of course the message to people can’t be to not commit aggravated robbery, not to break the terms of your release by being in possession of a weapon or to not flee while the police are lawfully arresting you. Nope. Can’t say any of that.
  21. I absolutely believe big tech/MSM/etc are doing any number of things in concert with the power players in our government to shape, swing and direct public opinion in their favored direction. Examples of this are literally everywhere. And yes, they do it for profit, ie their bottom line.
