Part of the problem is the fact that the GOP has become so repulsive, ignorant, arrogant and paranoid.

The kids aren't terribly motivated to move.

The GOP has been playing catch up to behaving exactly like regressives pretty much my whole life, so .. yeah.

Millennials and Generation Z show no sign of growing more conservative over time like the Boomers did. We must address the age gap.


The GOP has a problem, and it MIGHT be because they haven't had a good President since *checks notes*

You guys will make tough choices on who survives or not or live with a lot less. See those police. A percentage do their job real well. Some unfortunatly may cross the line. but many others are not very good and many of what are left are no good at all. And it costs. Salaries, pensions, sick time, injury time, lawsuits that they initiate and what is initiated against them. And then there is the time of the month time off and maternity leave and calling in to take off because the kids have no one to watch them and so much more. This is in a lot of jobs. To those who do their jobs well while others skate...It is called Toxic Suckerism.

Did the Boomers ever give up their marijuana from the hippie days of the 1960s and '70s? OF course not. Now it's all "legal" etc.

Yeah. You kids have been bred to be lazy authoritarians.
Dont know what will happen when all of you useless deadweights start arguing over who has to do all the work and who gets to sit on their fat asses jerking off to anime porn all day.
Every generation I have seen has had their men and their pussies. I just got off the phone with one of his generations men. 21 years old all ready has his captains license, already ran 80 trips this year. He will out fish , out shoot , out hunt just about any one I know. When you start to generalize you are almost always wrong. Had a great conversation with him and we laughing hard. He took out 5 men ages around fifty today. He tried to cancel the trip on them due to bad weather. They replied they could take it. My buddy Eli told them they are paying regardless of whether or not they can complete the trip. They are all tough guys till they get on the waves. They were out 15 minutes and started puking. Eli told them he ain't going back till he at least hit his limit. Took Eli about 45 minutes. Hillarious!!!! I guess those old men will know better next time. Reminded me of when Eli was my first mate and we had a group of Albanian mobsters on the boat. Same thing bad weather, I told them to reschedule. I got them out there and made them stay the whole 7 hours. While Eli and teased them the whole time. Big tough men. Hillarious. Ah fun times.

The GOP seems more concerned with removing moderates and Anti Trump conservatives, than expanding its tent...

Yeah, they really do, and I just don't get it. My only guess is that they think that (a) maximizing their nutty base will win with turnout, and (b) many Republicans they marginalize and attack will still vote GOP.

I guess that's possible. It tells me they know they're not the majority, though. They'll claim they are, of course. But the hardcore base is only about 30%.

Biden is Humble, honest, empathetic, self effacing, compassionate, kind and thoughtful. All of which are the direct opposite of Trump, who is a self serving, vindictive, cruel, retaliatory, corrupt and dishonest.

Biden, honest? Really?

Do you really believe that a humble, empathetic, compassionate, kind, and thoughtful leader is able to stand his ground with world leaders like President Putin? As you know, Biden has already caved to Putin and Putin has blocked two ports in Ukraine.

If Biden is humble, empathetic, compassionate, kind, and thoughtful, why is our Southern border such a disaster area with thousands of unaccompanied children being sent all over the country?

I do believe Joe Biden is all of the above. If your concern is President Biden is too weak to stand up to Putin because he doesn't use Trump's style, i.e. using bellicose rhetoric and Brinkmanship it sure didn't work with N. Korea.

And in the matter of Putin, Trump was Putin's lap dog.

Furthermore, the Border has "thousands of unaccompanied children being sent to (our) country" because President Biden is compassionate, kind and empathetic.

The GOP is the party of yesteryear.

This is what comes of allowing fools like you to get away with never having to learn history. For all that you believe you're wise and evolved and original and "the future", you're really just a sad retread of a story that's been repeated numerous times. And they all thought they were wiser and more evolved and "the future", too.

What have you learned from the history of the last 40 years of Republican economic crashes? Apparently you have learned absolutely nothing because you keep voting Republican.

You sit at your keyboard and lecture others about learning from history. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry?

How’d those Trump tax cuts work out for you? The deficit skyrocketed and the economy crashed.

How’d W’s tax cuts work out for you? The deficit skyrocketed and the economy crashed.

How’d Reagan’s tax cuts worked out for you? The deficit skyrocketed and the economy crashed.

Who is not learning from history bitch?
I'm uncomfortable with anyone lumping Reagan W and Trump in the same "conservatism."

The both shared the same economic philosophy: preserving and growing wealth is all that matters. Anything that reduces the wealth of the elites is bad for America. And their racism.

Ronnie was just as racist as Trump, he just did a better job of masking it, and never ever said the quiet part out loud, like Reagan. When the US Congress passed a lot to censure the Apartheid regime in South Africa, and impose sanctions. Reagan vetoed the bill, which I found odd at the time. Why would an American President veto a bill calling for voting rights of black South Africans, and an end to Apartheid? Because he was working very, very hard to build an apartheid nation in the USA.

As yôu know, all of the stories abôut Trump and Russia have proven to be lies.

As you know too, President Putin forced Biden to change his orders and is not sending two warships to the Black Sea. Instantly then, Putin has blockaded two ports in Ukraine. Putin is also massing troops on the border of Ukraine.

THIS is compassionate? What do you consider inhumane treatment of children?

Texas investigating allegations that unaccompanied migrant children are being abused, sexually assaulted in San Antonio
The governor did not know the identities of those who alleged assault, nor did he provide many details. He said he was concerned more than one child may have been assaulted.

How did the tax cuts work out? Revenues to the IRS increased and unemployment dropped to historic levels especially among blacks and other minorities. Low-income workers also saw greater increases in their wages than did upper-income workers, closing the gap for the first time in modern history.

You're just being foolish in your childish attempt to ignore Communist China unleashing COVID-19 on the world. Is that being honest or do you care?

No they did not. That was the result of the OBAMA policies. Job creation for blacks and minorities SLOWED under Donald Trump, after the historic increases in black business and black hiring under Obama. Obama cut minority unemployment in half. Trump lowered it by half a point or so. Technically yes, Trump employment rates for minorities were lower than Obama's.

Obama cut the black unemployment rate from 16% in 2010, to 8.4%. That's an average decrease of 1.4% per year for 6 years. Trump decreased the black unemployment rate to 6.1 in 2019 - a total decline of 2.3% over a 3 year period for an average decrease of just under 0.8%

Even worse, when the pandemic hit, black unemployment went back up to 11.4% so any claims you might have made that at least things weren't go backwards, under Trump, is right out the window.


Facts don't impress Trumpsters. They believe in Trumpism, that is the dogma spewed by Trump at his rallies as charlatans do.

Your problem is the D Party is also a neocon party.

His problem, and your problem, is that there are only two viable parties, and the whole system is corrupt. And you're loving it.
You’ve made some incorrect assumptions about me. Please don’t do that again or you will face a permanent ban.

Or you could talk about the issue. But if you're not going to talk about the issue a "permanent ban" doesn't sound too bad.

You will grow-up someday and be a Republican. Especially if you join the military or start a career and begin paying taxes. The thing that will turn you most rapidly? Put your kids in public schools.

No need to explain champ. Some of us have kids your age and we know how lazy millennials and generation Z can be. Not to worry though, you'll out grow the attitude eventually.
