Re: Coronavirus

That's pretty disgusting. We need to observer social distancing recommentations. Face coverings really help. It is amazing how many people still think the face covering is to protect the wearer. It isn't. In a non-medical setting, the face covering is to protect everybody but the wearer. And it works.

Re: The Donald, world's greatest @§§ńöɭȇ

I hope your Russian paymasters have reserved a dacha for you in your retirement.

It will certainly to come with the election of 2020 but hopefully sooner as more and more of Trump and his cronies' crimes are revealed.

Re: BANG !

Yup, Republicans shiver in fear over almost everything, especially dangers that are small to nonexistent.

Hey, didja notice that Crux is scarce here these days?

Maybe his Russian troll-masters have fallen short on their ruble payments to him?

Sad.

Re: BANG !

Your postings are dependably screwy and disturbing. But for some time they have mainly raised this question in my mind, "Do the boys in the Troll Farm in St. Petersburg pay you in rubles or in dollars?" A secondary question is, "Which of the two currencies is more useful to you?"...

Re: The Dead Zone

It is so nice to see our favorite Coondog drop in again. Don't be a stranger. Ah, yes, you are perceptive. In this era of Trump mania and Facebook's monopolization of social media, the Rockbridge Forum is suffering from neglect. Worse, most of those who do drop in are Trump cultists possessing no cr...

Re: Evolution, Is it Fact or Fiction?

Here's another example of the growth in our knowledge about how evolution works. Yes, it does, and the evidence is irrefutable except by those who are proud of their ignorance and will hold onto it no matter what evidence is presented. How did birds get feathers? Well, it's increasingly clear that f...

Re: The Road to Authoritarian Fascism and the End of Constitutional Democracy

Sadly, you are correct on the poll data, at least for this one. The situation becomes more dire with each passing day. When Democracy has been utterly destroyed by the Trump administration and his enabling Senate Republicans, then even MAGA morons will finally wake up. But it will then be too late. ...

I also interacted with him personally, in the mid-90's. On a personal level, he was then already an utterly contemptible human being. We now have a public record. It is awful and is getting worse. The man is unqualified for any position of trust. How sad that circumstances have put him where he is, ...

Taxes. We all hate 'em. But we have to pay. Unless you are wealthy, in which case the Republicans rewrite tax laws so that you pay less. In a blaze of chutzpah they then claim it "reduces everybody's taxes"! Cannoneer and I differed in our expectations for what it would mean for us when ta...

It is so, so difficult to figure out whether Trumpists like you are stupid, or just incapable of not lying. As is so often the case, you have it completely backwards. Here's are maps of net tax payer/receiver states, with the states paying more taxes than they receive marked in red, and "blue&q...

The British (and 'most everybody else) don't like Donald Trump

Why do some British people not like Donald Trump? A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no sel...
