    Memes one most powerful forms expression.
    Before making an accusation of “fake memes” burden proof on u;otherwise blanket statement

    They arent fake or “:spam:” since you disagree.

    Sorry; censor (topple statue?) the liberal game

    You drop a lot of memes yourself. If you want less stupidity in the thread, that'll have to stop. Memes don't promote dialogue, though a few are fun.

    You say you can't find any intelligence here except for Saint JB? That's just a bizarre comment, and makes me wonder how you would recognize intelligence if you saw it. I used to use JB as a barometer so I would have a window into how the unwashed mob thinks. Until it just got too much for me. But, as you say, we are all bigots and deplorables. It's easier to call names than to support untenable and even bigoted positions. You and JB seem to have that in common.

    The problem with the tactics you and JB use here is that you would never dare use them if you were having a drink with somebody (assuming JB is even old enough to drink). Or if you did, you wouldn't find anybody interested in having a drink with you.

    You just put on the warpaint and scream "bigot" or "Russian mole!"

    Goods luck conversing like that.

    And that is perhaps the biggest difference between JB and some others here. I have these discussions with all kinds, Marxists even, and some brilliant people (obviously not the Marxists though!). Nothing ever approaches name calling because we listen to each other and respect each other.

    When things get back to normal, come visit.

    I'll introduce you to $4.20 gas that'll make you think twice about that east coast diesel.

    Plus, I ride have an extra eScooter. So we can take the train, and scoot around the city.

    Hard to talk to someone who starts a conversation by calling you a racist.

    I think there is something to be said for masks. They don't protect you, but protect others from your own coughing or droplets that may come out of your mouth. If everybody wears a mask, transmission is slowed.

    I think it's an absurd commentary on the USA that they have managed to politicize even a simple health decision. Part of that is because they want laws requiring masks perhaps? Regulatory overkill.

    Masks are pretty common here, and basic manners if you have a cold or flu. They are not required, but I put one on when I enter a store or office - again because it's manners now. It's basic consideration for others. The US problem is that the government has become such a police state that they police what used to be basic consideration between adults, destroying the whole concept and making it political. Along with taking over the roles of the family and church, it's one of the ways they divide people. Rather than getting along with each other, people just have to please the state.

    I agree. But.. the size of America, many states have almost no c-19. My county has less than 100 cases, a few hospitalized and two or three deaths.

    I don't wear a mask unless I think I'll need one. I don't stand close to people, wash my hands a lot, carry hand sanitizer, etc.

    Local people I've talked to think most people had it last December.

    Similar thinking here. My daughter and I got sick flying through Asia in January, and that may have been it. Either way, a little social distancing, frequent hand washing.... no worries.

    I see some people wearing their masks here while they are in their car. Alone! I take mine off as soon as I leave a building. Too hot....

    Anything I say here, I would say directly to you. And I wouldn't have a drink with your type, based on your past comments trying to defend Trump sexualizing his kids, with you saying you do the same with your friends or past comments like this:

    As far as intelligence barometer, somebody who thinks Trump is some master Art of War type, you fail there as well.

    It's exactly that type of thinking on why things are getting worse in this country.

    It seems like Trump has somehow managed to make people feel ok with being stupid and they look to him as their leader in that department.

    We have 2.7 million cases in this country, I bet the majority didn't think they could get it either.

    :xf.laugh::xf.laugh::xf.laugh: Can't remember what was said less than an hour ago or multiple times already. Like I said, it's stupid people just like you that helps spread this thing. Daily/Active cases in your state continue to climb.

    I saw the picture... from 2006. ABC apparently had to go that far back to find a protestor who is attractive and non-violent.
