    Except I missed the part where Abrams and her supporters tried to prevent a peaceful transition of power like Trump did. And as much as Republicans like to sweep January 6 under the rug, it's not going to happen. Period.

    I agree BLM hasn't done shit and should be disbanded after an audit. Like to see all these black nba and nfl millionaires put their money back into education in a huge way like this white guy in chicago did sending 30,000 to college:

    Biden certainly put his foot in his mouth today, saying the US would respond militarily should China invade Taiwan. While that might actually have the support of many Americans, it flies in the face of our stated one China policy and has set off a bit of a diplomatic crisis.

    Can you imagine if Trump had said this? CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPo, etc., would be parading out talking heads and opinion columns about how heís sending us into World War 3 and should be removed from office. Instead, if you visit their websites, you have to scroll a bit to find any story about it.

    By responding militarily, does he mean sending aid/weapons like Ukraine or actual boots on the ground?

    I think at some point China will try to recapture Taiwan, but will sanctioning them be as effective as Russia? You'd think China would be learning some lessons from the Russia/Ukraine conflict.

    Based off what he said was military. Honestly, sadly I donít think he knows how to answer the question which should make us all nervous.

    It was immediately “walked back” by Admin “Officials”…meaning Ron Klain. The third time Bidens comments on Taiwan have been “Walked Back”!

    Me noting the number, was actually being saddened by the loss of human life...here and around the world.
    And there are things we can do within human control to lessen numbers like those. Vaccines being a good example.
    I continue to be amazed by people who want a public health crisis to be a political football.
    1. The excess mortality is not entirely associated with the pandemic - actually not even close. Esp. in the 25-65 age range. In fact, the excess, all-cause mortality has increased in the last year while a vaccine has been widely available. Why?

    2. I'll clarify... There is nothing policy-wise (e.g., lockdowns, mandates) that we can do to slow COVID. That has been proven.

    3. Those using rhetoric (e.g., "public health crisis") and data without context are the one's leveraging COVID for political gain. COVID was an excuse for authoritarian policies the likes of which western civilization has not seen in centuries. Those like me pointing out the reality of the situation want to prevent it from being used as a "political football" for the evildoers who want to control everyone's life.

    So, which of the three are you, Paul?

    Good grief.
    Just maybe it wouldn't have spread so much if conservatives hadn't made it political, and urged people not to get vaccinated.
    Don't worry, I don't think you could ever acknowledge that reality, so I'm not waiting for that to happen.

    The last 2 years here in the US, and even more so in other western countries (e.g., Canada, New Zealand, Australia), have made it abundantly clear why our forefathers wrote into the constitution that our right to bear arms shall not be infringed.
