    William Shatner becomes Captain Kirk thanks to Bezos, the man who seems to no longer be able to reliably deliver a package to my house on time, if at all.

    Nice one Bill.
    I watched the launch, the flight and the return. I saw Bill Shatner overwhelmed with emotion trying to describe his reaction to the flight. It was amazing, seeing this loquacious man at a loss for words. Very powerful and moving, I thought.

    Why would you waste a scarce health resource (a healthy kidney) on a patient who doesn't care about risking the lives and families of surgery workers? Let's get real here. If that patient gets Covid that precious kidney's been completely wasted.

    hope you are enjoying having less money, empty store shelves, no drug store to get scripts filled…boy this is the life isnt it?

    Christmas is off this year, looks like obama won round one…but hey, you can wear your dresses and lip stick.
    Oh no hang on is it not a bit early for the right wing dog whistle ‘they’ve cancelled Christmas’ trope, come back mid November.

    Many of you mention Democracy,, Like, do you want to lose it, we love it, whatever.
    Here is what I think: Democracy is designed to collapse. Be careful what you wish for. If the majority can vote themselves gifts from the Treasury, the Treasury will go bankrupt. It is impossible to have a society where the majority of people contribute nothing and expect everything. ...[text shortened]... lar, and the losers will want more, it will never be enough. At that magic moment, it will collapse.
    So families that can't afford child care or pre-K so they can work are "losers".

    Right wingers have been preaching against the People being able to rule themselves since they sat on the King's side in the French National Assembly. Nothing new here.

    The Framers saw things differently; they established a representative democratic republic.

    The richest people pay the overwhelming majority of taxes and then of course they are capped out based on their income from receiving benefits. You'd think liberals would be happy but all they think about is taking more and more and more for those who contribute the most.
    No they don't. The "richest people" get away with paying much lower taxes than the average American. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/10/08/first-time-history-us-billionaires-paid-lower-tax-rate-than-working-class-last-year/

    And corporate subsidies (and 10% own more than 80% of corporate stock) are far more than traditional social welfare programs. https://thinkbynumbers.org/government-spending/corporate-vs-social-welfare/

    Marauder seems to feign the word loser. While he looks up feign, he can look up loser, though he already knows what AvJoe means.

    A better response? Tell us where this post is wrong. Dependence on government, until the those people number more than 50% of the population, will break the government.
    Re your 'right wingers', quite curious, since the whole Con ...[text shortened]... eing a parasite, is a loser. Start a thread on it if you'd like, but could you respond to the post?
    Most right wingers show no evidence of having even read the Constitution.

    It starts: "We, the People".

    The government depends on the People who created it, not the other way around. The proposed programs you are recently complaining about would enable people to work not rely on government assistance. Child care and Pre-K is essentially unaffordable for large segments of potential workers contributing to the decrease in the percentage of the population being employed. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/childcare-parents-labor-force/

    Progressives have proposed a solution while right wingers, as usual, have none.

    Yesterday I got a call from them (I knew it was a scam) saying that they had intercepted a package addressed to me that, on close inspection was found to contain something that caused a warrant to be issued fir my immediate arrest and I should push the #1 on my cell, to talk to an agent. I did as asked and sure enough an “agent”, picking up on an accent, that wasn’t...well North American, I spoke to them in French, sounding very distressed, asking how I could avoid arrest. The “agent” asked me in English, and I kid you not (remember, this is the CANADIAN Border Services Agency and any governmental agency is required to be able to speak both official languages) “What language I was speaking”. When I replied, with indignation, in French that it was French, she hung up. I am awaiting the knock at my door by the police.😥🤭

    who would provide your handouts?
    Yeah, because the Deep South really is the economic powerhouse of the country... Their contributions to the coffers will be sorely missed...

    Trump is turning republicans who USED to be able to do actual governing, maybe not like what lefties wanted but they worked together with the democratic party.

    Now, they are zombies all looking raptly at Trump, awaiting further orders, attack WHO now?

    Like the idiots in Texas, new diabolically creepy anti abortion laws makes sense from a zombie perspective though,

    ZOMBIES WANT TO MAKE MORE ZOMBIES SO ABORTION IS OBVIOUSLY OUT.
    It's more like a cult of Trump than the party of Lincoln/

    What the hell is going on here then?
    In the US alone there have been 2500 incidents of fist fighting on airplanes the last year.

    Now, I heard that number and can only assume it’s rounded off. I mean, it would be strange if it was exactly that number…

    Anyhoo… what the hell’s going on there?
    Too much drinking? Surely, surely… that’s a European thing… football, booze… ...[text shortened]... bways too?

    Pretty, pretty, pretty strange, if you ask me.
    Not that you are, but I did say: “if”.
    Its a microcosm of privileged beings, being frustrated and unable to cope with other equally entitled beings exercising their privilege. For my 2 cents, its the inevitable consequence of being drip fed individual freedom as an absolute virtue, without a commensurate measure of civic duty and social responsibility as an obligation to counterbalance their independence.

    You still think that calling people names somehow strengthens your arguments?
    You lot have been calling people names from the start and your still at it. But you brexiteers have notes from your mums saying your excused civility.
    It’s noted that you haven’t addressed the issue of the lazy brexiteer who doesn’t want to pick fruit or work in a cold abattoir, and for pities sake don’t ask them to leave their arm chair and drive a lorry.
    I guess you guys thought them Johnny foreigners had just taken all the mattress testing jobs.

    How would I know?
    After almost a decade in prison the world is different when you get out.

    To give you some perspective consider this...
    When I went in my cellphone only had talk and text.
    When I got out cellphones are like small computers.
    When I went to prison you drove your car.
    When I got out a car can drive itself.

    Also, how would I know if someone used m ...[text shortened]... while I was gone and actually did owe money to the goobermint?

    A lot changed in those ten years.
    Whilst incarcerated, did you, “love the one you’re with?”🤔

    “Under the Act, warrants can be issued for both intelligence and criminal investigations.“

    This new law, and the one shot down in the aca doesnt require a warrant. It allows ANY bank account of $600 or more to be investigated. The govt can investigate you WITHOUT a warrant.

    Damn how ignorant.

    Did you watch it? No?
    Apparently your world.

    Why are you so terrified?
    Nobody is terrified of watching your stupid bloody videos. But considering your opinions, the chances of your links being remotely accurate or interesting are not worth the risk of wasting 50 seconds of one’s precious time.
