By “never really bought Twitter” do you just mean that he’s still able to get out of the deal? I read that he stands to lose $1 billion if he does not follow through w the purchase. That would seem to indicate that he’s stuck in limbo… don’t you think?… that, yeah, he “never really bought it” BUT he HAD taken enough steps toward buying it—enough skin in the game—so that he stands to lose a shitload of money.

On the other hand, maybe, legally, Elon can avoid losing that billion since he could claim fraud in terms of the value of the company being intentionally misrepresented.

Forgot about that.

Even though that does indicate a lack of Independent thinking, can Elon be forgiven for that since he wasn’t redpilled at the time?

Yeah. I also think Trump really didn’t appreciate it when Elon tweeted that he intends to vote Republican, but he thinks the country would be better served with a presidential candidate much less divisive than Trump (paraphrasing).

In this latest post by Trump, what do you think he meant by “probably illegal purchase” — is that a reference to Elon possibly doing something illegal? Or is that just referring to it perhaps not being a legitimate sale because the quality of the company was misrepresented & made to look more valuable than it actually is??

Updating the name from “Women’s Clinic” to “GYN Clinic” is exactly the kind of virtue-signaling bullshit that literally changes NOTHING.

“The word comes from the French gynécologie, which is based on the Greek roots GYNe, "women," and -LOGY, "study of." Definition of gynecology: the branch of medicine that deals with the diseases of women.”

This has got to be some sort of satirical dumbass contest.

How do we know McConnell’s wife and father-in-law aren’t Chinese spies? Am I allowed to ask, or is that racist?

Thanks — I think there is a lot of bad info out there. I also very much agree with your other comment, or, rather, how I interpreted your other comment, which I’ll put into my own words: Encouraging others to be self-sufficient is good, but suggesting to anyone that it’s easy or that you can “wing it” is truly not doing anyone any favors. Get informed. Make sure your sources are good.

Having said that, are you aware of any reliable websites for info related to this?

Why do they look so different? Is it just because the non-local eggs are mass produced… so, more stress on the animal and less healthy eggs?

How’s he anti-pharma?

I am aware that he’s pro-puberty blockers.

Remember a few years ago when that story came out about college wrestlers who (long ago) were allegedly molested by their coach (at, I believe, university of Ohio) and at the time that was allegedly going on, Jim Jordan was one of the Assistant Coaches?

I might have a couple of those details not exactly right - just going by memory - but, first of all: I think that was all a bunch of shit. I don’t believe any of it. But second, Jordan got a tremendous amount of heat, and due to other events & overly emotional public circumstances & outrage going on at the time, I think there was some danger & a real possibility of some within the party turning on Jordan exclusively for cowardly public relations reasons.

I mention this because it was a memory you triggered with your comment. I tend to think of politicians having dirt on one another as a sort of “hidden secrets” arrangement. But I bet it also applies to situations like Jordan’s, in which the story IS bullshit — but being innocent is, sadly, too often irrelevant. The energy around an accusation can easily take on a life of its own. I think it’s likely that McCarthy thinks of himself as The Godfather. He’s able to save political careers, or ruin them. Perhaps mccarthy made an agreement with jordan to have his back & usher away the story in exchange for Jordan later having McCarthy’s back. Madison Cawthorne didn’t play the game, and we saw what happened to him. Absolute humiliation.

As disgusting as it is, the person with the greatest ability to fundraise is considered “best qualified” to be Speaker. McCarthy is highly effective at raking in donations. Appointments to prestigious committees within Congress also are “earned” by one’s fundraising accomplishments. Quite disgusting. There’s a good clip of Matt Gaetz discussing this — I’ll post it here if I can find it.

I’d really appreciate reading some takes from fellow Trump supporters on why the hell Trump endorsed Oz— and why Oz over Kathy?? I love Trump. I get incredibly frustrated when he shows this particular kind of poor judgement.

I’ll be honest... & I don’t know even know how to put this without inviting attacks, and without sounding like a snowflake leftist… but, screw it—I’m going to use the word “offensive” because it’s accurate: I am somewhat offended by how Trump has treated Kathy. Because she is one of us. She’s someone who could have been standing next to any of us at a rally, cheering, being patriotic, and fighting for conservative principles. She has a track record of solid America First advocacy, and she deserved Trump’s support.

More than ever, I now try to live my beliefs with confidence, while also being humble enough to listen to others who attempt to be reasonable. Especially with conservatives, I think compromise is important. So here’s how I might’ve been able to compromise: If Trump had not endorsed either candidate. Or if Trump had supported both candidates.

But to fully endorse Oz and basically say that Kathy has questions in her past that she’s failed to answer, that really does look to me like he’s throwing a patriot under the bus. I don’t like it. And I know he threw in something along the lines of “IF she does somehow win, I’ll support her” — but it’s hugely disappointing how trump handled this.

I thought Nadler was wearing his usual face diaper in this video… but you know what… now that you mention it… I think you’re exactly right!! Nadler’s wearing a friggin feed bag! For quick & easy access to his caramel popcorn.

Pretty sure you’re the first to figure out the true purpose of Nadler’s feed mask. Brilliant!!

MaltiPooSaysWoof, To be honest, I didn’t know that. I found this recent article, if anyone’s interested in learning some background about Roy’s thinking on his 1/6 vote. (Link at bottom)

Listen, I’m not going to lie, I do tend to be the type of Trump supporter who’s quick to write off someone who doesn’t vote the way I (we) wanted & expected regarding significant, important votes. But over the past 2 years with President Harris in office, I’ve done a lot of reflecting. I think I’ve developed much higher expectations for those in the GOP — meaning, I’ve really come to terms with the fact that perhaps 90% of it is useless & must be replaced.

I’ve also become more thoughtful & less reactionary when I’m disappointed by someone who, time and time again, has shown a hell of alot of fight, passion, integrity, an obvious love of the country, the constitution, truth and transparency.

I won’t write off Chip Roy because of his 1/6 vote. No one should necessarily feel compelled to insult me for that opinion. It’s just my opinion. My opinion is that there’s a big difference between fucking up a vote because you’re compromised or cowardly and fucking up a vote because of a sincere judgement call that the election situation was a chaotic shit show with no legs to stand on.

Thanks, sincerely, for pointing out Roy’s vote to me though. Was glad I looked into it. I wish he had voted differently on 1/6 — however, my gut tells me that if Roy TRULY BELIEVED that voting the OTHER WAY was the righteous thing to do, he would have voted the other way, even if no other republicans voted along with him. He’s on the side of the constitution, and he believed his vote to be one of integrity on that day.

Thanks! Verrry interesting. Tomorrow I’m looking into Rathergate. (Also have to look up what a Choom Gang is — have never heard of that term in my life). Thanks again.

Tom does contradict himself. I could give several examples. But in terms of the “pumping out babies” line, I don’t personally find that offensive based on my interpretation of the song.

My impression of the song & video is that Tom is playing a role here — he represents The System, so all the lyrics are from the point of view of The System. And the harsh, blunt lyrics are meant to portray how heartless it is.

Tom seems to believe that the system wants us compliant, unthinking, and on a predictable path. School is important to the system — not for kids to gain knowledge, but for kids to get programmed. And from there, people need to grow older, not wiser. Dont question, stay clueless…buy stuff… focus primarily on money as you search for happiness…get married to someone who also doesn’t question…pop out a couple babies & keep the process moving like a conveyer belt.

Not sure I explained that well, but tried my best to describe the message I get from it. One other thing, when he’s yelling at the “baby girl,” he calls her a bitch — the word itself is removed from the song in the video’s version of it, but if you watch or listen closely it’s not that hard to find the spot where he says it. Tom doesn’t use that word, and he seems to sincerely believe it’s wrong to degrade women with language like that in music — so, the fact that he used that word supports my opinion that he is personifying The System when he says it. The System also mentions within the baby girl lyrics music being harmful.

I think Tom playing the role of The System in the song makes it MUCH more powerful. If Tom was explaining the system from his own point of view & his own voice, it’d be impossible for him to be that blunt. I think it’s creative and conveys his points with maximum impact this way.

One question I still have though: Tom is playing the role of The System, he’s a stand-in representation of The System — but what does the idea of The System represent?? With Tom’s red eyes, is he suggesting that The System is Satan?
