VERY PRESIDENTIAL!

A state is burning to the ground, the country is faced with a massive health crisis and he runs away like a little baby.

Imagine seeing Trump and how he behaves and believing he is a strong, confident person. I am not sure how that can happen, but it seemingly does. Even his demonstrations of what he considers masculine strength, not wearing a mask, is an act of pure cowardice.

I am not sure I can handle much more of the US winning if it means we are constantly wetting ourselves while hiding in the corner, praying no one finds us.

Oh yeah on a different note, the Federal. government spent $28 million dollars to send postcards out to stimulus check recipients to make sure people knew Donald Trump was behind the payment.

Everyone needs to keep that in mind anytime a crack pot talks about Trump donating his 400k salary.

Trump gives lip service to supporting vets but when he has to choose, he's on the side of corporate grift every time
He relentlessly takes credit for a Veteran Healthcare program that was established under Obama. Would be interesting to see veterans realizing his fraudulent existence and how he opposes almost everything that helps them.


Quick story, I know a guy who served a while in the military. He has some pretty serious personality disorders, but he is on medication that does miracles for him. He is a very intelligent guy.

We were discussing Trump and he asked me a question. “What do you think Trump will do if he is not re-elected”. I walked him through some possible scenarios, like starting a media company etc. He seemed a little relieved. He knows Trump is a bad president and bad for the people of this country. However, and even though he is not active military, he considers the President his Commander In Chief. So he is really torn about how to vote.

His primary concern though, was if Trump lost the election would he kill himself. He felt that he would feel extremely guilty if he did not vote for him, he lost and he committed suicide.

I assured him that Trump was way too much of a narcissist to ever kill himself. After we talked about it a bit more, he became more comfortable that he could do the right thing (his words) and vote for Biden.

To be clear this is not an anecdote I expect to be extrapolated to represent military veterans or any other group. His circumstances are pretty unique so I think the story represents him and him alone. I had never talked to him about Trump before so I was a bit surprised he felt Trump was harming the country so much as president he had to find a way to vote against him that he could live with.

Ok, I read your link. Now can you explain what you meant in the post I asked you about?

Property damage is violence according to the Webster dictionary and probably most people who understand the English language. It is far more destructive that some whack jobs walking around with guns not hurting people.

No. You've made it abundantly clear that doing so is a waste of time.

Correct me if im wrong...but 316 deaths/M (of which almost all had underlying things going on and, on average were 70 years or older, does not qualify as a ''health'' crisis.

So lets rephrase it to: ''the country is faced with a massive crisis''
He wants/fights to open up asap so i dont see how he is running away for anything?

I would have liked to respond to ''A state is burning to the ground'' as well, but unfortunately it did not meet up to the standards within my ''reply worthy'' category.
But in Trumps defence...he did say shooting will start.

I do understand your hatred for Trump (np there), but in the future, please choose your words more carefully as i find it a waste of disk space.

Yes...actually there should be a ''Pro Trump'' topic and an ''Anti Trump'' topic!

Re: Trump

Sure. Two things.

First: 316 deaths/M, on its own, would be the 7th leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than diabetes and less than Alzheimer's. Both of those, and every cause of death ahead of them, are treated as extremely serious public health issues in the United States.

Second, and more important: this **** isn't done yet, dumbass. Comparing 316 deaths/M to other things isn't quite apples to apples because the rates for other causes of death are over an entire year. If COVID-19 deaths double in this country, do you know what happens? COVID becomes the third-leading cause of death in the USA this year, behind only cancer and heart disease. And unlike cancer and heart disease, it's ****ing contagious.

You think cancer wouldn't be a massive health crisis - more so than it already is (consider how active governments are in banning things that cause cancer at the expense of economic gain) - if you could catch it from people around you? Hahahahahaha holy ****

Thanks for sharing your view...so i will share mine as well to you.
Before that, i find it rude if u make things personal...like: ''dumbass'' and all that.

People do not die from CV...they die because they were already weak/old/sick...compare it to the flue if u will.
So...if u put that into perspective...lets say a diabetes patient dies who has CV...he died from CV...if u follow my drift.

My point is this: 99.99% will never experience anything serious when they have CV.
Shutting down the economy therefore is ridiculous.
Let alone all the circles in the parks and plexiglass everywhere.

But hey...if u wanna live in the ''new normal'', all power to u. Me...i prefer the ''old normal''.

And thats what Trump is trying to do here. (to stay on topic)

Between this and your claim Covid is not a health crisis I must ask, who called the idiot store and ordered you? This place is already full of obtuse thinkers who don’t know how anything works of how to actually process information.

There are already ten of you here and they were here first.

If your theory is that normal, regularly-occurring deaths that would have been marked as diabetes or cancer are now being marked as COVID because the patient happened to catch COVID while dying of something they otherwise would have died of, then...

...how do you explain excess deaths?



This utter moron's working theory here is that cancer deaths and old age deaths just happened to shoot through the ****ing roof completely independently of the global pandemic that's unluckily happening at the same time, lolololololol. No wonder you love Trump, you're even dumber than he is!

Live fact-check of this Dutch right-winger who can't make a single accurate statement about the United States:

1.4% of confirmed cases under the age of 65 in the United States have ended in death

So what u r saying is that there is only place for 10 obtuse thinkers here?
In which case we should really need to redefine the term ''obtuse'' asap.

Just factcheck and give me some numbers/percentages/data...then we will talk.
