Terrible is relative. You aren't a republican after all. However I don't know what to call someone who argues against forgiving the student loans of cancer patients other than terrible. I always support people's right to not see me - I am very unchill so I totally respected when rock needed a break from me for like a year. But I don't bring it up to harm you or to make you feel bad. You are just the best example of active users of what I feel plagues our country besides Republicans.

Perhaps ghoul was unkind to be fair. But so is arguing cancer patients and the poor shouldn't have things forgiven or universal healthcare so heyo

"centrists", aka people who don't follow arbitrary political concepts like cultists, and instead evaluate different topics and apply logic and reasoning to them, don't care about "sensitive language".

Want to appeal to 90% of the voting population? Drop the dogmatic and pointless "wedge issues" and focus on the things that matter. There was no problem with the state of abortions, so why dredge it up? To placate a base of people that were already going to vote for you? It's absolute lunacy how people are spending so much time/energy on a resolved issue instead of focusing that effort on real problems, like the collapsing economy, the runaway inflation, the astronomical crime rates and the complete lack of any kind of law enforcement.

I mean, it's kind of being forced by the fact that the Supreme Court is about to overturn Roe v. Wade, and like 20 states or something have trigger laws to immediately ban abortion in most/all cases. The ones "dredging it up" have been Republicans who have spent the past 50 years trying to achieve exactly this.

Precisely my point, thought the people that shout from the rooftop about how "progressive" or "leftist" they are just as bad for pushing for nonsensical policy decisions rooted in feelings and hivemind thinking rather than logic and critical thinking.

I needed a break from you because I made a harmless joke about not believing the Georgia Polls ("ok ulti") and you retorted how I was like Ulti because we both share fucked up personal stories on b8... exactly when my most recent "fucked up" story was about my father's attempted suicide.

Right now those politicians don't exist for the most party, but you need to be cognizant of those people in case Republicans change strategy

Well that was certainly not intentional on my part. Iirc I was thinking about your less serious fucked up stories at the time. Bad timing on my part, can't say I blame you for not wanting to see me for awhile.

(I also would not consider personal tragedy a fucked up story. Also in hindsight I don't even know why I would make that retort as it's really not needed. Oops)

Both political parties in the last decade realized that the optimal strategy is to play to extremist fringe political beliefs, which is why you see shit like this, and the insane garbage being put out by people like AOC. In a 2 party system, the 95% of the voting public that want no part of abortion bans or "defunding the police" have no choice but to go along with whatever "side" they see as the lesser of 2 evils. Noone but fringe religious psychopaths are calling for abortion bans.

Yet the administration has struggled simultaneously to make the case for pouring continued resources to fight the pandemic with officials surprised by the level of Republican resistance and unwilling to hold up other legislative initiatives to use them as vehicles for getting Covid funding passed.

Lmao how is that even possible in the year 2022.

I knew, from the god damn jump that Joe Biden would just be shoveling money at the police under the guise of "look we're improving them actually!"

But this is actually so fucking gross and Biden and his administration are fucking assholes. What is throwing MORE money at them going to do to improve the obvious issues with them? What training do they need to solve their systemic issues that they can't allocate the already bloated funds they have to focusing on THAT?

Christ alive, this asshole went into this election promising to fix the systemic issues with cops, provided NO suggestions or solutions until he was finally pressed on it and went "We just got to teach them to shoot people in the leg, Jack!" And he pretends now like there is no problem with the law enforcement. It's no longer an issue! Just hire MORE cops and spend MORE money on this broken fucking system that oppresses people. The issues with it are no longer an issue to them because he got the election.

Throw literally any thunder or fucks to give at ANYTHING else right now. ANYTHING. Just something other than we need more policing while people are dying of Covid and women's rights are being ripped away and babies can't get formula and inflation and the environment.

In 2018, Trump had similar approval/disapproval numbers to Biden's current ones, and the Dems enjoyed a 46-40 advantage in generic voting against the GOP.

In 2022, the generic polling has a 45.5-43 advantage for the GOP.

The Democrats should be hammering how strong the economy is. They should be constantly bragging about the historically low unemployment rate and tremendous surge in wages. If Trump was campaigning he'd be bragging about these things nonstop and taking credit, deserved or not.

I think people need to acknowledge both that western europe is a better place to live than the US and that doesn't mean the rest of europe is, let alone most of the world.
