Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I was left a few months ago. The virus has swung me center right. This I totally get. The riots and protesting have swung me a bit back left. This, I don't get. Please explain. If anything, the insane hypocrisy of Dem governors with the lockdowns being important, but the protests being more importa...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I was left a few months ago. The virus has swung me center right. The riots and protesting have swung me a bit back left. I want to ask the Trump supporters here, what were the optics supposed to be of him walking over to the church, holding some bible upside down for 30 seconds, and leaving? If he ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

No, I don't post under an alter-ego named doodle. :D Glad there are people who feel similarly. Many of you are able to see past his personal failings and to his policies, which as I've mentioned I generally am ok with. But I can't see past that. I don't like my other choice, though. I truly hope the...

Re: Investing Twice Monthly Into PP

You got me interested into looking into M1. I first go to the about page. Not sure if I would feel good or bad that it looks like the average employee age is 22...!

Re: Being supportive of rioters

I've had daydreams of the whole world turning some same shade of dark brown and all speaking the same language. I wonder what would happen. This is the fantasy of the globalists. This is what they want. To me, it sounds awful and boring. If I want to go visit Japan or Nigeria, I don't want it to lo...

Re: Being supportive of rioters

You're right about the tribe aspect. From birth to about 12 years old, I had exactly one friend who wasn't either family or Italian. I lived in Chicago , but pretty much never saw a black person except for yearly visits downtown for an eye doctor appt. I speak Italian well, and on our honeymoon in I...

Re: Being supportive of rioters

Agree and that's why I called them assholes. They are only screwing the neighborhoods they possibly still have to live in. Makes no sense at all. Also no sense with the cop leaving his knee on Floyd's neck long after he's pleading that he can't breathe. Makes no sense again. I don't know where peopl...

Re: Being supportive of rioters

I've heard enough black parents on TV talking about counseling their black kids on how to deal with police so they don't get hurt/killed/arrested that I am sure I'd be damn pissed off if that was my situation. Isn't that common sense? Everybody should know how to behave around police, particularly ...

Re: Being supportive of rioters

Hey, I've got a great idea. Build a new city somewhere, safely away from existing communities. On an island, maybe. Mandate that there will be no police, court system, or jails. Let's even be nice and offer people who move there free housing and a small stipend, by way of attraction. In return, the...

Re: Being supportive of rioters

Interesting, I though that was a well written and well thought out article expressing anger at the looting, but also some level of understanding. Aren't you an anarchist, tech? Don't you want to see it all burn anyway? ;) From the article: "Whether it’s to overturn the whole system as the anarchist...
