This is an important question. I bet you get no answers either. It's an enormous blind spot, and likely cost him the election. His people (like us) weren't in favor of the coercive measures developing even in 2020 before the vax was available.

He was hamstrung by the traitors surrounding him, but still. Letting that miserable gnome Fauci call the shots? Shameful. Trump doesn't think like a team player, never has. He's "the guy". He wants to have others like him around him.

The "pandemic response" should have been a multidisciplinary team on a short leash with daily deliverables, driven by a hard-ass CEO like Trump. Not some dumbass corrupt tiny tin-pot dictator on the take with a legion of cronies.

Meh, my grandma could hold her own in that contest.

So true. We've lost the "John Wayne" version of manliness. The Lone Ranger, standing alone against injustice. Even Ayn Rand's Howard Roark, demolishing his apartment complex rather than let the twisted version of his design stand. (A link to Roark's speech - it's pretty powerful: https://www.panarchy.org/rand/roark.1943.html)

That kind of powerful individual has been utterly expunged from public conscience, awareness. Anyone like that is portrayed as "toxic masculinity".

"The TV said so." I have friends who sit mesmerized by the talking heads, uncritically swallowing everything they see. Appalling.

I can't listen to Alex Marlow on Breitbart's morning show anymore. The relentless bad news, and his take on some issues, has made it nearly unlistenable.

I'm using my Bible reading app to listen to Psalms while having breakfast. Interestingly, David (the "Psalmist"), had a lot of pleading that sounded quite applicable to today.

I remember seeing Soylent Green the first time, in a theater. The assisted suicide scene was really shocking. The whole idea was rather unprecedented, and shown as symptomatic of "the system" coping with a dying planet.

Now? We're there, but the "dying planet" is just a governmental fabrication. It's astonishing that people have gone along with this.

It keeps them from rooting under the fences. It worked great with my grandfather's pigs. I always see that mental image when these people with nose piercings show up.

It's from a pretty well known book, one which really should be read a lot more.

Here's the full quote: " There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love ." - 1 John 4:18

Apathy is the most extreme expression of anger. Anger is the result of loss of control. The truly apathetic have so disconnected they are no longer reachable. There is no straightforward way to repair the situation.

Fear, not hate, is the opposite of love. Perfect love casts out fear.

You know, it should be. But the propaganda is so pervasive that almost everyone I know parrots the official lines. Intelligent people are not immune to it, in fact maybe even more susceptible. They have an oh-so-superior smugness, completely assured they're right, with no ability to defend their position. It's just, "The TV said so." Or sometimes, "My (insert relative here) is a Medical Professional, so they know what they're talking about, and they say it's safe and effective. ".

I don't think we're going to recover from this one.

The covidians I know insisted I should get the vax not for myself, oh no, no, no. I had to get it to protect them! It "stopped transmission", so how dare I not get the shot. I was selfishly exposing them to danger.

It's just beyond simple face-palming stupidity. It's some type of anti-intellectual brainwashing propaganda outcome.

"Racially prejudiced", vs "racist". Hmm. I wonder if lefties can comprehend the difference in meaning? It's and interesting possibility. It seems unlikely it would really matter to them.

This article explores the idea. While blacks could be "prejudiced" toward whites, they can't be "racist". And "prejudiced" isn't consider very bad, while "racist" apparently merits violent responses.

Oh, for sure! My lefty daughter-in-law told me I simply didn't understand what "racist" meant. In my world, racism is treating people differently based on their race, or so I've always thought.

Oh no. The trendy, left, black-approved version is "Racism is any exertion of control in any way over a minority person by any majority person or entity." Oh really? By that definition a stop sign is racist if placed by a white city government, since it means blacks have to stop there. It's insane, stupid, arbitrary, yet that's where the whole "systemic racism" thing comes from!

Also why blacks feel so outrageously entitled to tear the place up at the merest slight.

With such contrasting definitions, we'll never be at peace. And I think the government and lefties profiting from it like it that way.

This is the answer. They don’t own him, he doesn’t owe them. They can’t make him do their bidding.

He proved that a smart businessman can readily resolve these “impossible problems“. The deep state hates that!

Yeah... I wonder if the life insurance losses will bring this to greater awareness? Can you imagine if they put a premium surcharge on a life insurance policy because someone is vaccinated? Wow...

A friend of mine in his mid-60s just died yesterday from a “massive heart attack”. Of course that does happen, and sometimes to seemingly healthy people.

However… I must admit, the second thing I thought, after “that’s so sad and awful”, was “I wonder if the vaxx he took (so he could drive a school bus) was a factor?”.

There won’t probably be an autopsy, of course. I wonder if the embalmer may find those huge white fibrous clots. If he’s cremated, no one will ever know, I guess.
