The real significance of the laptop

I can’t believe no one in the media is talking about this: If Biden wins, they will remarkably discover a conscience, turn on him, and viola, meet President Harris. The battle could be great fun, actually. The corrupt Old Guard versus the insurgents.

The enormity of the federal government is the main problem.
What would you say has caused that? Is it the natural tendency of power to flow to the top?
Direct democracy and the ability to get elected by catering to groups. Combined with Parkinson’s Law I suppose.

If their country was taken over by the next Mao or Pol Pot, everyone on this forum would be re-educated or killed.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Jesus that's some crazy level of detail. It probably took them 100 days to concoct it. So with all the prior restrictions, did covid drop to nil? No, still having infections. Guess the virus isn't following the regulations ;D For crazy, how's this. 1. Want to cut grass at my mothers house in the co...

Re: Democracy Sucks... Dictatorships Rule!

I've read blogs and articles by Americans who decamped to rural Mexico, Argentina, and other non first world nations. Their view is pretty uniformly that as a guest in such a country, the authorities leave you alone. And that the governments often are not very intrusive because they are too broke to...

Re: The Tom & Doodle Podcast. Who’s In?

Yes, and they were separate shows.

They are listed here, but apparently there is nothing behind the links.

Re: Why are you afraid of if the “other” party wins?

Which is not to say that I have no fears about it. If Trump wins, I fear that the Antifa and Hollywood and Media and Tech assault will be 5 times what it is now, and will be extremely dangerous to the country. If Biden/Harris win, I fear that the lefties will be empowered and thus all of their tacti...
