Posted in: Justice Dept says IRS must give Trump tax returns to Congress See in context

Evidence of your massive tax fraud is good way to distract from evidence of your attempt to overthrow the US constitution...

It’s possible to focus on both. They’re both evidence of this man’s total disregard for the law, societal good, and democracy. In other words, Trump is an all-around crook.

@bass, blacklabel, et al.,

What do you think is the best way to deal with this pandemic, since you’re against masks, shutdowns, and vaccines?

 I really do not understand the wild opposition to it.

I think it's pretty simple. Trump cultists are driven by a hatred of liberals. Had liberals shunned masks, these people would be wearing them 24/7.

Not nearly a 1/3 of what the radical elements of the violence that Hamas has wrought on the Jewish people.

You've got that completely backwards. Far, far more Palestinians have been killed by Israel than Israelis killed by Hamas, Hezbollah, or other Palestinian terrorist groups. And I don't see Palestinians evicting Israelis from their homes.

Israel is a supposedly democratic state. We should expect better from it.

Kicking Palestinians out of their homes has nothing to do with national security. It's just a greedy land grab.

“Did you not get the CDC’s memo?” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis joked

DeSantis is not stupid. He knows the vaccines and masks save lives. But he says otherwise for his own political gain.

It takes a special kind of warped mind to let people die in order to get ahead.

The GOP is the party of "me first". These dumb people are dragging the pandemic on and on.

People have to wear masks because lots of Americans don't get vaccinated. And then those same anti-maskers complain that wearing a mask proves the vaccines don't work.

Bonkers!

McCarthy is just not playing this stupid game again and kudos to him for not. 

I don't know what's stupid about investigating a mob who stormed the capitol in the name of a former president who continues to spout lies about the 2016 election, and with the support of a large number of GOP legislators. Why is that stupid?

they were the ones trying to dismantle democracy.

Impeachment of a president who abused his powers is not only constitutional, it is the moral duty of congress. How is that dismantling democracy?

remember when Griffen held a bloody mock Trump head? Yeah, liberals can't say anything about wanting to kill anyone.

Nah. Weak comparison.

When is the last time liberals stormed the capitol?

“I apologize from the bottom of my heart, of course to the classmate himself whom I have hurt, and all my fans, friends and other people involved,”

He doesn't care at all about the kid he tortured. Otherwise he would have apologized a long time ago.

He's "apologizing" to the public because he got outed and he wants to save his career. I hope he spends the rest of his days regretting his existence. Piece of trash.

Boycott this creep's music.

Posted in: Mandatory indoor mask use returns to Los Angeles See in context

its very complicated. The CDC says vaccinated people dont need to wear masks. Yet, this article says people do. why?

Easy. Because it’s impossible to know who is vaccinated and who is not.

The CDC sets guidelines. It does not make policy for LA.

Hope that doesn’t scramble your brain too much.

Posted in: Mandatory indoor mask use returns to Los Angeles See in context

vaccinated people can still spread the covid so wearing a mask reduces that spread.

Also, it’s impossible to know who has been vaccinated and who hasn’t. So it’s safer to mandate mask wearing for everyone.

So some people got the vaccine so they don’t have to wear masks anymore? 

feeling a little misled right about now?

Tokyo won because it was better at bribing.

the Democrat party as of now is nowhere near meeting these expectations of enforcing the laws and supporting our police unapologetically

Thanks for your characterization of the entire "Democrat" party. That way of thinking will solve a lot of problems. You oughta run for public office.

As for "supporting our police unapologetically", I guess you mean to say we should stop prosecuting cops like Derek Chauvin, whose tough-guy approach did so much to make the streets safer.

Says who?

don’t inspect these numbers to go down. Less police equals more crime.

Fewer guns equals less crime. But I inspect the gun manufacturing lobby will not allow this to happen.

the 47 prefectures that hosted the torch relay have spent a total of 11.6 billion yen! That's around $106m.

A hell of a lot of money for a spectacle that was given its current form by the Nazis in 1936. Too bad Leni Riefenstahl isn't around to film this propaganda.

False. Very few liberals have ever called for this. Just as very few conservatives have ever called for the military to overturn an election.

Posted in: 8 people wounded in shooting near Fort Worth car wash See in context

the idea being that well regulated militia could be mobilized into a national army during time of war, or defend their home state from possible predations by the militia of another state

The main reason for the 2nd Amendment was to allow "militias" in the South to put down slave revolts. Slave owners were scared to death by the prospect of their property rising up in number, which they occasionally did. The "militias" existed primarily to shoot black people who got out of line.

This is well-documented fact.

It's also interesting to note that black people were long denied their 2nd amendment rights, and today are more likely to be killed simply for declaring that they are in possession of a gun (e.g. Philando Castile).

@bass

DeSantis, a rumored Republican 2024 presidential candidate, told Biden the “cooperation has been great," declaring that the administration has "not only been supportive at the federal level, but we’ve had no bureaucracy.”

Good to see this.

I disagree with most of DeSantis’ policies, but he has proven to be a competent governor.
