    A Class-less act all the way to the end...

    (Mr-X is now TRIGGERED!!!!)

    I honestly thought she might possibly be the only one that might have the cojones to "man up". Alas, my hopes were dashed to the rocks...

    “triggered” block, often, without warning.

    You remind me of Big Tech, so many ways... @TestCase

    You’re my 2nd-to-3rd favorite leftist poster, come on :)

    I'm sure this year there will be a lot of stories of what they find when they get into the White House. Details of things passed that might have went under the radar.

    We have Melania desecrating bowling balls:

    "She had the [bowling] balls redone with lettering 'The President’s House,' not 'The People’s House.'"

    Sometimes people just push it too far.

    Biden will get to the Presidential bedroom and say, so this is what it's like, Obama never let me in. One day, late at night, when he's fiddling around the night stand, he might accidentally tap a certain section and a secret drawer will pop out with Trump's leftover Adderall stash.

    Trump’s adderall crash? This is fan-faction.
    Didnt Obama do Coke? a much worse drug.
    We all know Obama was many kinds of smoker...
    He “Fought for the Bong.” pretty sure also comes crash.
    And aforementioned Coke has crash?

    I oppose Socialism as it is fully written ... although when a person reads socialism it is extremely attractive ... it rarely has been run by the book ... the temptation of full power dictatorship has overwhelmed the theory... that causing countries to collapse or be heading toward communism .

    I totally agree with many references .... such as medical .... or universal medical .. I am Pro Obamacare ... universal medical care would be awesome .. as long as the care patients receive is genuine .... funding for the elderly ... social security will not even pay apartment rent ... funding for the homeless and solutions to end people having to live on the streets .... even its metal container living communities for the homeless .. that is far better that we have right now ... although I am not pro free college ... I am for the government to lower tuition and completely stop price and interest rate gouging on college students ...

    I am also pro for supplemental funding for the poverty stricken ... people who are trying to help themselves .... deserve help getting over that poverty hump ..

    if I could actually see the above happen ... I happily pay the taxes to do it ... seeing people suffer is not what I want to reap benefits off of ... paying a higher tax rate ... while lowering crime ... poverty and starvation of the less fortunate would be very satisfying... sign me up

    yeah ... I am sure they have several things they do besides just run a background check ... there are probably certain things that may not seem like anything to us .. but will throw up a red flag to the people doing the vetting ... I expect all will be calm and fine as well

    if you have never done cocaine before .. don’t do it .... the problem with coke is ... it’s too good .... the feeling is to damn good ... but it only lasts 30 to 45 minutes ... I haven’t done any in 20 years ... because the shit is so good a person will go back for more every time ... don’t ever do it brother .. it’s not worth it in the end

    I don't get it. The dude is in the national guard, not a professional speaker.

    It is clear what he is talking about. The control of the military is being transitioned from one President to the next. You guys are really grasping at straws now.

    Come 12:01 PM on Wednesday Joe Biden will be president.

    Trump can declare martial law or invoke the Insurrection Act or whatever he wants, they do not work how many of his supporters seem to think they do. It does not give the President some superpowers to just stay President.

    To the people rooting for this or supporting this, it is un-American. You don't like the results of democracy, fine, run a better candidate. Quit trying to turn America into some 3rd world dictatorship.

    Come noon, on January 20th his term as President expires per the 20th amendment.

    So Trump didn't incite them? You are sending mixed signals

    So is jaywalking. The capitol is supposed to belong to the people. When people are unhappy with their regime, they normally focus on government buildings. This is almost a tradition around the world. Only in the US and North Korea do they consider a government building sacred.

    Russia again,, sigh

    Sorry to be a pedant, Brad, but you mean "systemic," not "systematic."

    Funny how addiction works - some people are more prone. When I lived in LA and SF some people would constantly have coke out for their guests, like after dinner mints. I never felt the need for it, though some friends really went off the deep end. Same with cigarettes. On the other hand, fermented beverages call to me!

    I still think one of the factors behind all the craziness in the US is prescription drug overuse. It's shocking how many people, even kids, take psychotropic drugs. Couple that with the world's largest prison population and highest arrest rates, and you have one part of what's wrong with the country.

    Seems like that's a big issue in Japan. Serious alcohol problem. That and suicide. Seems repressed, Police States, you have more of that. Couple that with a 99%+ conviction rate. Alcohol to cope. Suicide for those that can't cope anymore.

    Japanese Alcohol Culture
    Alcohol consumption has dropped in most industrialized countries—but not Japan.

    "In Japan, there is no societal acknowledgment of alcoholism. For much of Japanese society, addiction to alcohol doesn't exist. In fact, binge drinking to the point of blacking out has been normalized. You can buy shots of alcohol from vending machines. Just as there are stand-up noodle shops (i.e., there are no seats for sitting), there are similar stand-up bars to service many white-collar workers who have limited outlets to cope with the stressors of life."

    Still hurt i see?

    We’re finally on the same side

    The crackpot crack cocaine laws were racial in nature.
    Since your boy Biden helped drafted that mistake; he’s justifying the cause for what led to the legislation. (it’s only conveniant to admit “racist” when anti-Democratic.

    i think if he admits disparity in federal sentencing for crack and cocaine were racial; he admits he’s racist

    Why would I be hurt about anything? Biden President in 2 days.

    I just care about the world and concerned with Japan's rampant alcoholism, rampant suicide and 99%+ conviction rate.
