Red is just so bored with a day of testimony about the sabotaging of American long-term interests in helping Ukraine, strengthening our position in Europe and containing Russia.

Oh well, I guess he has different interests.

And after losing major elections in Virginia and Kentucky, as more and more Red-state surburan voters recognize the evil and corruption of the Trump crime family, his only weak response is to mock the Blue Wave.

SSDD
I didn’t mock them. I feel sorry for them. Nancy used them to get her job back then threw them over to appease her Socialist wing. Now what they gonna to do. ?

The blue wave was in no small part about real oversight of the “president’s” lawlessness. The majority of Americans who support an inquiry that would not be happening without Democratic control of the House are I would imagine happy with that leadership.
The election is just a year away. Good luck!

Another day of Hearings, another day ofyawns.

Sorry if you found it boring, but I'll agree the "president's" longtime friend and adviser being convicted on all counts of trying to cover up the campaign's collusion with a hostile foreign power's scheme to hijack our democracy was definitely the bigger news.
You must have your trials mixed up.

To be clear about this; if Americans had not elected a Democratic House Trumps scheme to abuse his power to bribe and extort an ally in order to spread disinformation about his political opponents and influence the 2020 election in his favor would be working. This is a FACT.

In REDSTATEWARD’s mind that has no significance because Walmart’s sales are up.

This pales in absurdity only next to the fact that his priorities would so obviously be different if the bribery scheme was in the service of electing a Democrat.

A true patriot, this guy.

Nope. Just my brain is capable of following more than one current event at a time.

No. It is pure speculation on your part.

A GOP led House would have elevated the whistleblower complaint after Barr’s DOJ did all they could to bury it?

No. I would not say that is “pure speculation” and feel I am on solid ground calling it a fact.

“It'll be great if we reach a point in time where folks stop making excuses for why people support(ed) Trump and are ready to admit this is nothing but a total shit show brought to us by white racism and hateful resentment toward people of color.”

——Bree Newsome Bass

Where’s the lie?

Not a lie, but I think it should be pointed out that the shitshow was also brought to us by people who are not racists per se, but are willing to excuse white racism and hate in a “president” in order to get tax cuts for the already wealthy and install unqualified partisan hacks as judges.

people who are not racists per se

Don’t let them off the hook. If you can accept racist shit done in your name for your profit, you’re racist.

You do believe in yourself, Red, as you stand alone in the bottom of your toilet using Hannity’s feces as bath soap. Or at least you seem to believe. You may have just lost yourself down there.

The Party of Stupid (and of misunderstanding what religion is about, too) strikes again.

https://local12.com/news/local/ohio-house-passes-bill-allowing-student-answers-to-be-scientifically-wrong-due-to-religion?fbclid=IwAR1-tm0-123OhR_e0zIo-eI59tT_x0aqZZWdimhhsQSLQwj9gBemYBdrcAY

Every member of the GOP in the Ohio House supported this bizarre and absurd bill. The Senate is controlled by the GOP. I fear for their children's future.
Why?

To permit giving bogus answers in order to allow people to give answers that are acceptable to the religious leaders - "religious freedom" is the excuse. It is modeled on a law from Mississippi in 2013 and that one is stupid, too.
Bogus answers?

Is the Earth flat? Yes. (Okay, under this law.)
Did dinosaurs coexist with humans? Yes. (Okay, under this law.)

Are you  really that dense?
Obviously you are incapable of understanding the law.

Quote
Sec. 3320.03. No school district board of education, governing authority of a community school established under Chapter 3314. of the Revised Code, governing body of a STEM school established under Chapter 3326. of the Revised Code, or board of trustees of a college-preparatory boarding school established under Chapter 3328. of the Revised Code shall prohibit a student from engaging in religious expression in the completion of homework, artwork, or other written or oral assignments. Assignment grades and scores shall be calculated using ordinary academic standards of substance and relevance, including any legitimate pedagogical concerns, and shall not penalize or reward a student based on the religious content of a student’s work.

Where in that do you see contradiction of what I said?

I don't expect you to actually answer my question, just to continue making vague, useless statements impugning my intelligence. But I can hope.

Gabbard is a Russian agent!

Quote
“I’m not making any predictions, but think they’ve got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and they’re grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said. “She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

Since then named. But "Russian agent" wasn't what was said, troll.

You can't be that stupid.


You need to control yourself if you want any kind of back and forth...

It's not as if you engage in a discussion of events, Kid. An article gets posted and you either thank the poster or claim it is incomplete or some other dismissive thing unless it matches your perspective.

But since you already admitted being a troll, I don't suppoe it matters what we say to you.

Over 300 pieces of legislation on hugely important issues like election security and co.mon sense gun reforms that Senate Leader Mitch McTurtleface refuses to bring to the Senate floor? Or.was.that a rhetorical question?
No.
But thanks for playing.
So it.was not rhetorical.  My first response stands then. The Democrats in the House have a record of solid achievements on important issues that have been ignored by the Repos in the Senate. A tremendous argument to oust those Republicans.
Thats what people are asked to do in democracies.
Have at it.

Your party going to stop trying to stop folks from legally voting this time?

Seems unlikely.
