amazing job by Dems and their media of memoryholng the other incident this year where a police officer actually died during the attack.
remember that one?
indeed I do. I remember Steve Scalise being shot during the House softball game by a Bernie supporter, too. What’s your point?
you do comprehend that 70 in a 55 and 185 in a 55 are treated differently, right?
don’t try to compare January 6 to anything that came before it, hoss. There is no precedent. I told you this was coming back when your people tried to run the Biden bus off the interstate in Texas. You said I was overreacting. The hell I was. I watched your god king set this up for months. The national populists have no moral high ground whatsoever. Jim Jordan was chosen for the sole purpose of making sure the commission never even starts.
Gaslighting only works when the other side doesn’t know you’re doing it.

McCarthy immediately issued a statement that said her move will damage the institution of Congress.
“Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts," McCarthy said.

Pence, stressing he believes China "senses weakness in this new administration," demanded Biden take other steps against Beijing.
Pence is dead on with this statement. Unlikely even the most fervent CNN-gulping left leaning lib would deny it.
Indeed. Where would the PRC get that idea? Perhaps they have eyes and see the Big Lie cult and it’s malignant influence on American “strength?” Could it possibly be?

Abbott said the issue will be re-visited and resumed again, it’s not going away, not to mention, if the Dems stay away, they have to BE AWAY a full 30 days and that means they can’t even attend other important legislative cases and have abandoned their own constituents, that’s going to be tough, if you leave the steak on the grill and don’t attend to it, it’s going to burn up, so the Dems put themselves in a serious predicament now.
Yeah, uh...that’s the point.
they know all this. Probably a lot better than we do.

This new law also allows people to use their Social Security number for verification if they don’t have a valid ID, that would be another alternative if they don’t have any other form of ID. Every working American citizen has a Social Security Number. If you can’t provide ID, this would be the next easy step into properly and accurately identifying a person, so that should be ok with Democrats and less intrusive since almost all Americans have them. Problem solved.
Bass, if this were the whole story there wouldn’t be an issue.

I saw a YouTube video where a guy was interviewing Liberal Arts students a year or 2 ago. He asked students what they thought about Voter ID laws. Many of them, white students, tried to explain that these laws are racist because Black people can't get IDs. The same guy went to Harlem to interview Black people if they had IDs. Many of them laughed and asked why wouldn't they have an ID. They can't live without ID including driving a car, bank loans, buy alcohol and many other things.
Straw man argument
y’all, (“y’all being supporters of these “voter integrity” laws) if voter iD were the issue, you’d be having very little resistance from the other side. Stop with this defense. It ain’t the point. Yeah, it’s a straw man

However, Democrats need to be careful about labeling GOP efforts to make voting more difficult as racist. The GOP is making it more difficult for populations who vote Democratic to vote, regardless of race.

If these were “voter ID” laws the National Populists might have a point. I personally support voter ID laws.
that is the National Populist straw man.
these “laws” exist to appease one man, because in his modus operandi the only way he can lose is if he’s cheated.
this would not be happening if he were still President. Had he won the 2020 election would have been the “greatest election in the history of humanity.”
but he didn’t win. And any Republican who acknowledges that is cast out as a RINO.

China says it chased U.S. warship out of disputed sea
Has Biden apologized yet for offending the owners of the China sea?

No problem, Super Lib?
I’d argue that’s exactly what they’ve been building for years.
A system of permanent minority rule via stacked courts and flagrantly gerrymandered statehouses that writes off the popular vote entirely, rather relying on the Electoral College.

To block the new legislation successfully, left-leaning lawmakers will need to evade the Austin area for the entire duration of the special session, which may last as many as 30 days.
That’s going to be difficult to do. They got themselves in a pickle now.

the entire liberal argument rests on this "but they are private companies". Are you sure? why do only SOME companies have Section 230 protection? could they be a different category because of that? their infrastructure is built with public money, so could be a public/private hybrid?
any private company that uses public funded infrastructure is a hybrid treated as a public good...
and y’all call Biden a socialist??
4 ( +5 / -1 )
Except the infrastructure they use to move their product, the fiber, switches, and computers are in many cases purchased by taxpayers in those huge omnibus bills that purport to bring the Internet to everyone at a low cost. These networks are highly regulated by the government. In other words, Google, Facebook, and Twitter didn’t build that. The people did too. Therefore they must treat the taxpayers equally. If you can’t understand logic I’m certain you will fail a citizenship test.
they are individuals with the rights of individuals. You don’t like it, take it up with the Alito Court.
Interstate Highways are also paid for by the taxpayer. Are you suggesting that a “Trump Train” attempting to run Biden buses off the interstate in Texas was a violation of said Biden buses first amendment rights and that the Biden campaign would have been justified in filing a lawsuit against the Trump campaign after Trump openly celebrated, on Twitter, the violation of said rights by his supporters?

No they are not.
have tried to explain this before, but “woke libs” (neo liberals) and the “progressive left” (lean euro style social dem) are not the same people. The progressive left thinks as little of woke libs as you do, Commodore.
”Defund the police” comes from the progressive left. The dem neo lib establishment that tanked Bernie again and selected joe Biden hate Defund the Police because they know it helps the GOP. The progressive far left genuinely views the police as an occupying force that exists to protect the property and prerogatives of the wealthy. Joe Biden categorically does not belong to that camp. Not even close, no matter what Brother Carlson tells you.
