    So since there is a thread about Trump let's start one with Biden.

    I thought Reagan was really old when he ended his presidency, but Biden was already a year older than that when his admin started. I'm not sure the case sounds so solid for a second term for an 83-87 year old.

    Wild speculation, but I figure it will be Kamala vs. T***p in 2024, that Kamala will win, and that the GOP will plots so hard they start burning neighborhoods and shooting up local courthouses and shit, you know, all the things they always accuse Black people of doing that they're never really actually doing. Hopefully not.

    Or the future past. Whatever the case, all candidates over the last 30 odd years have sucked the sweat from the armpits of fat women doing laundry in an anthrax zone. Whatever that is... It does not sound pleasant and neither are the people that run for office today. The need for organized manipulation is always a suspect idea. Those of us that will play nice and not screw over our fellow men/women get screwed anyway. Those that want to screw us get paid to screw us with glee. Left or right. It does not matter. It;s just this fallen world. Biden is a huge bolt of a screw. If you hate Trump, well there is Biden to make up for it in spades. More corrupt than any president ever. Stupid. Silly. A corrupt liar. Whatever. Someone made it happen. Some people wanted this turd in office. Trump, Biden, or Bernie? How about none of these clowns.

    "If you hate Trump, well there is Biden to make up for it in spades. More corrupt than any president ever. "

    That's commitment. I think ZB was too generous in his assessment. Sounds like you are channeling JKcerda.

    "How about none of these clowns."

    How about we all become cyber serfs under corporate feudalism. Or just kill ourselves...

    Somehow, for all the talk about Biden being senile and on the verge of dying, etc, he still manages to sound more lucid than Lord Dampnut:



    ... which, admittedly, is not a hard thing to do.

    What planet do you have to live on to actually need that video to make that point, and still miss the point.


    Evidently Earth. =L


    Bjack's post is basically saying every human alive on the planet is a stupid, silly, and corrupt liar, which I guess is a convenient way not to take it all that seriously, seeing as it's being posted by a stupid, silly, and corrupt liar by its own admission.

    Not that I think it's entirely wrong. Humans are human through their amygdalas, and hippocampii, and hypothalamii, and ventral prefrontal cortex, etc., all of which and more are pretty much designed to compel us to be pretty stupid a lot of the time. But even saying that, to paraphrase Bertrand Russel, we should acknowledge that some humans are less corrupt than others, and we ought to promote them.

    "They're all as bad as each other" is a good way to re-phrase "I'm not good at quantitative comparisons".

    That's where we are already, to a some extent.

    If I were to edit my post, I would add "presidential" in front of candidates. It's been a sorry show for the past 30 years. Anyone that really could lead and is not on the take somehow, is reluctant to run. Some very unqualified people ran this last time. Biden was propped up as a last ditch effort. He did not win as himself. He won because he was not Trump. A semi-sentient tree stump would have probably won too.

    Biden is extremely lucky the media is covering for him; however, his luck is wearing thin. He's getting really nasty during pressers. More attention is being paid to Hunter and his dealings. The hasty and ill planned pull out of Afghanistan. His under 40% approval rating. Inflation. He is not well liked. His only plus is he is not Trump.

    And no, I do not think it's a good idea to kill ourselves. I do think it's a good idea to curb media/corporate/government collusion. I don't see Biden helping in that area. Just my opinion.

    We'll see how things come out this November. Many predict a red wave. I'm not so sure about that. Republicans are great at snatching defeat from hand of victory. If there is a way to blow it, they will.

    Is this a post-Snickers bjack screed, because it bears scant resemblance to your initial outbursts.

    If I were to edit your post, I'd just hit delete and slink away before anyone noticed.

    How about I am more complex than the little pigeon hole you have placed me? You scamps do not read, nor interpret my posts in a whole context. You parse it and attack bit by bit. This is what "The Trickster" would do. Reflect upon that. This is meant as a joke, if you cannot read between the lines.

    In all sincerity, I wish you all good lives and happiness. You hate my view point and think I'm terrible. So be it. But I think you are projecting upon me what you don't like about your opponents and I'm simply someone stupid enough to comment on a far left leaning chat room. Put down the Marxist literature and look around. I've put down my libertarian Kant myself and see that while we humans can come up with wonderful ideas, no solution ever comes to full fruition. The Christians are on to something. This is a fallen world and will never be perfect. We just have to do what we can do best and be kind. That is in short supply here. Again, It's my own fault for poking the bear.

    How much context does this toothless sound bite need? - "If you hate Trump, well there is Biden to make up for it in spades. More corrupt than any president ever."

    Simply and objectively bullshit, by several orders of magnitude. And yet you expect us to parse your verbal manure piles for the diamonds you apparently forgot to stash there.

    It's not the lefty's misunderstanding you that's the problem. You are not a victim, you are inarticulate and ham-fisted. If you don't like getting beat up, stop punching yourself.

    Remember there's 40 years difference between those elections. Life expectancy for males born in Biden's year of birth is almost 15 years higher than in Reagan's year of birth. People are living longer, get used to the old fogeys hanging around running things longer.

    It really takes a special kind of mind to look at Republican presidents and go, "Yup, Democrats just as bad." Especially as one of the recent ones started two major wars that got countless civilians killed and the other was an unscrupulous grifter who blatantly abused his power, obstructed justice with impunity, broke every standard of decency he could find, and basically fanned a smouldering cold civil war into a full-scale inferno.

    Yeah, the problem is evidently us pigeonholing you.

    I don't know about you guys but Biden is awesome. Nothing to complain about. I'm certainly enjoying the Medicare For All and having my student loans forgiven. Keep up the great work Joe!

    Yes, because Medicare For All can be done by executive order, but all the past Democratic presidents just didn't do it for some reason. Thanks, Obama!

    Perhaps it was because of the unassailable logic found in this tweet, Starker?
