You retards have never read a word of Karl Marx in your inbred life. He championed the prolitariate and was an economist. Keep bleating your american't fear.  Socialism is about equal distribution of wealth and social care. Guess who takes care of each other the most and considers themselves equal?

YUP!!! ANd all these fuckheads "progressives" who voted for him are gonna regret it when Biden starts the bombing again. Incoming bank bailouts! Obama 2.0! 8 years of protesting the establishment just to vote it back in office.

pretty sure you've been told already that trump has dropped more bombs than either bush or obama

https://cdn.statcdn.com/Infographic/images/normal/16079.jpeg

 

2008 bank bailout as under bush. and you might not have liked it, but the alternative was worse. imagine loosing your job and being on the phone with the bank who have now canceled your credit cards and also want an immidiate full payment on the mortgage while you watch as a tow truck repo's your car. now imagine thats happening to everybody. the riots then would have been worse than the ones we have now, but they would have been about food.

so you have an idea what a lockdown somewhat looks like, now, ours is flawed. got to wear a mask unless you say you got asthma and few other issues. but you can see how it can work for while to bring down the number before people start getting stupid again.

 

now 15 states don't even have a mask mandate.

OMG, DUDE, WE DONT HAVE UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME LIKE CANADA! In most states you wont even get unemployment, in others you get around $100 a week! Can you live on $100 a week? How about NOTHING! NY and Cali are generous with their unemployment IF you can prove you have a business, if not then you get regular unemployment, again, IF you can prove you had a job, a lot of people work off the books, like in bars and restaurants and are fucked! Even then most people still only get around $200 a week, $500 max. You cannot shutdown everything and NOT support people! Thats like saying people shouldnt complain about not having healthcare in the USA becuase we live in a country that provides free health care.

Actually Trump attempted to get healthcare passed, but that was stopped by congress. Mainly the democrates were jealous they weren't going to be the ones to do it. so they auto voted against it because reasons. And the Republicans couldn't agree on a good plan. So they wasted their opportunity when they had majority.

Possibly intended as a motivator to Get SOME kind of healthcare plan in as a replacement. If so, then again the senate are the ones being petty and hurting the country for not settling on a replacement.

 

So if a healthcare plan is put through that may not be a total Biden victory. As the process needed a certain amount of time to work out. And this funny virus happened to throw a damper in all kinds of plans. (That's cured now that Biden is announced as president.)

Yes I also go on to state.

 

so they auto voted against it because reasons. And the Republicans couldn't agree on a good plan. So they wasted their opportunity when they had majority.

 

So even the seats held by democrates were not giving favorable votes. That's 40% right there. Lets say there are a couple of republicans that either have democrate friends, or just don't like trump. that's- 5% lets say there. Then all you need for something to not pass is another 5% or more to be indecisive about the plan.

Small- Medium businesses are fucked unless they don't rely on human interaction outside of SOME trades. Plumbing and Electric, mechanic mainly.

 

The help money is not infinite nor free. We will be paying tis down for 20 years.

 

Guess who does just fine during lockdown though. CORPERATIONS.

 

The government takes away your ability to work. Forcing government dependence. In exchange you follow more of their rules, and have less autonomy.

 

Those with more auntonomy. (Business owners.) Are being squeezed out. Generating more slaves.

Dude when I was so sick I had to live for over a year on welfare because our medical system can't negotiate a case like mine I was amongst those whose entire subsistence is guaranteed by tax dollars. Entirely. And let me tell you - those people have no intention whatsoever of changing into the type of person who could survive without such aid. When COVID hit, and because I'm still in touch with many of the "welfare friends" I made during this brief time in my life, it was like God had given each and every one of them a lottery win. The booze was a flowin', the drugs ever-present in every variety, and for them it was a great party. Ongoing.

 

I don't know what to do with this - I DO know I prefer it to a system of US prisons full to the brim overseen by private corporations. That seems obvious to me. Is there a better solution - almost certainly.

America dropped 26,171 bombs in 2016. What a bloody end to Obama's reign https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jan/09/america-dropped-26...

 

The U.S. is running out of bombs to drop on ISIS https://www.cnn.com/2015/12/04/politics/air-force-20000-bombs-missiles-i...

 

"...total for Obama’s presidency to over 100,000 bombs and missiles striking seven countries, surpassing the 70,000 unleashed on five countries by George W. Bush." https://consortiumnews.com/2017/01/18/obamas-bombing-legacy/

 

The bill was passed under Bush but Obama implemented it. He ran on the fucking platform of NOT bailing out the bankers and Wall Street that got us into the mess we were in. As soon as he got elected he hired Wall Street and Bankers to hand out the cash to their friends. Like I said, he back stabbed us with a smile on his face while lying to us! Dude, I fucking set up an Occupy encampment in my city. I was there, I remember it.

Good question, but there's a better question. If Clinton had been elected in 2016, what graph would we be looking at and what would it show? You wouldn't just be looking at a graph of Aghganistan - the place the US is strategically retreating from. You'd be looking at a graph detailing several ongoing conflicts initiated by the US and the top of that exponential curve would pass through the top of this comment section. Watch what happens to your selectively autistic graph over the next 4 years Sal.

I found it very difficult to find information on this which is very concerning. The military industrial machine seems to be getting some help from big tech to hide this information.

None of that matters. He was wrapping up conflicts already engaged. Successfully.

 

Reducing presence. And not starting NEW wars.

 

I can already imagine "YEAH! REDUCING PRESENCE BY USING DRONES OMFGGGG!!!!"

 

If you're going to keep fighting, and leaving right now is not on the table. Better drones than troops.

 

Attempting peace offering in the middle east between the states early in his presidency. The last 5 Presidents didn't even try.

 

Also successfully de escalating North Korea. No one accomplished that before might I add.

 

While The whole world cowered in fear, He stepped up. Told Kim to stop playing games or your tin horn shanty that you call a country will be annihilated.

 

Then he did the counter intuitive thing which is go over PERSONALLY at GREAT risk. and form a relationship with him. And the world complained that Trump called a Meeting wth Kim and showed up 24 hours late with no statement. LOL. Like the world cared about the feelings of a dictator all of a sudden.

Actually he pulled the trigger on Syria and Lybia.  Allowed NK to grow unchecked, and entertained the idea of Iran.

 

Pulled out of Iraq prematurely so it remained destabilized.

 

Which is why we need to be more thoughtful about what we set up in Syria, and when/how we leave.

Obama did not have one single country outright staring him in the face with a threat.

 

NK blatantly came right out and said we are working on ICBM's and we will use them whatever way we want with Trump in Office. A country that could hurt us tested us. And Trump Passed the test.

 

Obama was never tested.

You are leaning as hard as I've ever seen you lean before into your autism. lol It won't shield you from cognitive dissionance - you can just avoid it more than others. You don't look at data honestly in this regard because you don't want to receive information that will put you in a place where you need to choose between what's rational and satisfying the demands on you coming from some social group, which often includes the SO. 

 

You make a point, and then you admit your point is invalid because it's based on an incomplete set of data. Over the next four years, it will be impossible for you to continue with your current approach. You will have to face it - the delta will compel you to do so.

no. i'm taking the information available and going with that. trump bombs every 12 minutes. 43k bombs a year. not much happening in 2020.... so you want to go with 3 years. maybe 2 and half. thats over 100k. now, what i said was there was no graphs. but there are articles. https://theintercept.com/2020/04/22/coronavirus-somalia-airstrikes/ 39 airstrikes in somalia this year. there was a total of 36 from 2009-2017 and thats just airstrikes, that doesnt say how many bombs or missles were let loose. but again, you can find info about airstikes and what not, but no official numbers. which like someone else mentioned since the budget icreases every year, is concerning.

Biden is further increasing the military budget, but you don't seem to be conerned about that. Trump reports that his position on withdrawal was aggressively opposed by beaurucrats and warhawks within the permanent state - do you really think that didn't happen, knowing as you should that the majority of them and their "analyst advocates" are paid to be what they are? 

 

Forget Trump - Tulsi Gabbard's campaign was subjected to the "Russian asset" hoax - Hillary came out of her cave to say that Tulsi was being groomed by Putin. The same people who opposed Trump's desire to withdraw support the neolib/neocon dominance agenda exemplified by Clinton and Bush. You ge tthat right?
