    Yeppers. Econcomy is going the best it's ever been. Total rocketship. Ignore that 40 percent drop in GDP please. Also Herman Cain is still alive. Ignore the obituary.

    Unemployment would be much higher but the plan was to shift it to companies and fund it that side. And that worked.
    We or somebody pay shops and companies to keep people on staff even if not needed.

    If we could keep this going forever and the government would cover all payroll, rent. utilities and such China would not have a chance on pricing.

    Some have asked me how is there is no work in our shop and nobody gets cut?
    Well you and below you don't cost anything to stay on. Do not want to loose trained people and hope this goes away.
    If the fed turns off the pipeline.. different things will happen but that money stream seems to have no end.
    Unemployment payouts one thing, this funding so way different. These are working people 8 to 5 or such.

    Mom just let me out of the basement to use her computer, so I'm way behind. I don't get why you virtue signal over something as stupid as BLM. If blacks are so awesome, why didn't you choose to live in a black neighborhood and have your kids attend a majority-black school? Let's get real: Your typical white working-class guy gets zero benefit from having blacks around. Blacks, on the other hand, receive the tremendous material benefits of industrial civilization when they live among whites. Blacks at 13% of the population account for about 53% of the murders and 60% of the robberies in the US. Go look up the DOJ statistics on interracial rape. Blacks rape about 20,000 whites per year. Whites rape approximately ZERO blacks. Blacks commit crimes at about 3x the per-capita rate of whites. And on and on.

    Isn't it weird how in white supremacist culture that blacks are the primary beneficiaries of affirmative action policies put in place by whites? It seems like in white-supremacist-land whites themselves would be the ones getting the system to discriminate in their favor.

    White supremacy also means that blacks, asians, jews, hispanics, etc. can all have their own college-funded student associations but whites themselves never have associations that advocate for them. Because that's how white supremacist cultures work.

    Or isn't it weird that black entertainer Nick Cannon can talk shit about white people with no repercussions but as soon as he mentions jews, he gets his ass fired by CBS and has to apologize and ask forgiveneness? Check out his deep-throating: "I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth." But he didn't have to apologize one bit over his slander towards whites. I guess that's just how white supremacy works.

    Regarding God's Chosen People, isn't it weird how congresscritters of that derivation constantly call for more immigration, more refugees, etc. because Diversity Is Our Strength but never do they insist apartheid israel change its incredibly discriminatory policies? I wouldn't want to accuse God's Chosen People of anything, but it almost seems like they're promoting a double standard or something. The optics of this kinda seem more like God's Chosen People Supremacy than white supremacy, but there must be some other explanation.

    Harvard Professor Robert Putnam hates what he discovered in his famous 2007 paper but the results aren't surprising to anyone who is a realist: increasing diversity destroys community participation, charity, volunteering, happiness, etc. You know what increasing diversity positively correlates with? More TV watching.

    Living in a middle-class white neighborhood means kids can play outside, women can jog at night, property can remain unlocked, and nothing shitty happens. Whites living in white neighborhoods and advocating for BLM bullshit are massive hypocrites with no skin in the game. I'd challenge you to name one tangible way life is worse for whites when there are no blacks around.

    Last, an aside: "not shitlib" doesn't imply "therefore trumptard."

    Pretty touchy subject. Not disagreeing with much of what you wrote but consider this. We all live on one planet with finite resources. If the more advanced cultures don’t pull up the less advanced cultures the less advanced will continue to procreate until all resources are consumed or global war breaks out effecting us all. So we really don’t have much choice long term. The birth rate in Africa and India need to get under control. That usually means suppression of religion and education of women (men are hopeless, they just want to screw around)

    No idea why Pete posted that video. Seems to demonstrate that BLM supporters have low IQ. Maybe there are some places black people shouldn’t go but there are a whole lot of places white people shouldn’t go. Take that moron’s sign away, put a klan hood on him and drop him off in Harvey, Illinois and see what happens.

    Read today that the Soviet Union fell apart because of large fractions continually disagreeing with each other. Both politically and physically.

    Sounds a bit like what's going on in the USA at the moment.

    United you stand, divided you fall - and you've not been this divided since 1861.

    Don't blame other countries, blame your own politics and politicians.

    Not the case really. Divided to you is working things out for us. We could care less what kind of stupid bind you get into over there.

    Yea uh we are not keen for your next war either. As everything is always going so great there until it all just blows up. Give me a break. Your long history is not the history’s of saints and so just admit that you are not saintly.

    Your puny country has little impact even in your EU. Your days of power are forever over. There is not any way to become greater because you are so self isolating. No one can get along with you and vise versa. You are stuck.

Or how thousands of small businesses advertise themselves with spinning signs and the like. Or how most everyone "advertises" walking along wearing something like a MAGA hat or a Bernie T-shirt.

    The real hazard would be those stopping in the middle of the road to give him the finger, threaten him, promise to come back and beat him up, etc. That could get you rear ended or have you veer off the road.

    Back to dementia, seems you, Joe B, and I all need to work on our typos, written or verbal.
    Could you be any more biased than you are?

    I don't think BLM had any reason in the first place. Most all of the black lives that matter to them were nothing but criminals who were stupid enough to fight with the police. Anyone with a room temperature or higher of an I.Q. knows that is a bad idea. Anyone who thinks their gatherings aren't helping to spread CV-19 is kidding themselves.

    I agree with the bit that no one can get along with him and he's self isolating.

    No one? You have reading disability?

    If you believe you can do a better job as a moderator email Don. If he agrees that you can then problem solved.
