      Worse is when they make up reasons to have supported the system. Like the excuses for the US Civil War. The revisionists can't accept the text on the page that very much points out that the entire point of that was slavery.

      Even now, they are doubling down on any action to fight COVID. Faux is literally murdering their own viewers, and can't stop. Right wingers are literally murdering their own voters, and keep up "the fight". It's pretty sickening.

        With friends like those.............

        Actually, Duncan Black wrote a post about that the other day. let me hunt it up.

        Related to this, when I see groups of the absolute most miserable, cruel, monstrous people who are apparently friendly with each other (like the greater Trump Cinematic Universe), or at least form little social bubbles, I think, wow, I guess this is what you know? That this is what human relationships are? Just a bunch of utter *****s who will kill you for a quarter, and these are your "friends"?

        And you don't choose to just go live in a cave? Especially when a lot of these *******s are extremely rich, and they could go live in a really nice cave? Or just, I dunno, surround yourself with different people? Any other people will do.

        Maybe that's why a lot of these rich weirdos become dedicated twitter posters, or spend their twilight years doing CNBC hits.

          Based on how they see labor and worship rich people, they are taking off an extra $20 for the honor of keeping the rich, rich.

          Reminds me of a time I was talking to a tech at work, and how he was so against labor unions because he could negotiate his salary. The irony made me speechless- he was a contract worker instead of a direct hire. The management at Kelly Services love that kind of attitude.

            Did he say that on Bill Maher? Perhaps CNN? MSNBC? Maybe Faux News? Or did he tweet it from his official account? Perhaps he said it on his podcast?

            He lost his radio gig over this but he had no future in the GOP even before he turned on Trump he was going to be stuck on Newsmax. He is in a much better position now even if he took a hit to the bank account in the short term...he is the poster boy for the "Never Trump Right".

              Yeah, he stared into the abyss and practically touched it. You don't radically shift from that to even centrist without giving up a lot. Regardless of appearances on Maher which might make you a couple grand. It doesn't replace your income.

              • Stared into the abyss...man you really buy his crap don't you? You know he hasn't changed his political stance on anything right? He is fleecing the libs like he fleeced the cons.

                Reminds me of when Glen Beck had his come to Jesus moment...then realized there is more money with the crazies.

                If Joe Walsh thought he had a future in the GOP he would boot lick Trump faster than you can say "syndicated radio".

                        About a third of the way through the lectures and a couple of interesting things have come out of it:
                        1. Even bandanas provide about the same protection as perfect filters that filter room air
                        2. I always knew 6' was nonsense. This provided the math to prove it.

                              Nice going Jeb, you fucking piece of ****. I hope you're happy when some lunatic - fed by your endless stream of lies and mischaracterizations - goes and shoots someone in scrubs outside the hospital. Because, you know, mah rights!
                              Went round with a kid in his 20s the other day. He has 'researched deeply' while being thoroughly immersed in the silo. Had all the talking points- how dare they deny him when he is refusing an experimental drug, the vaccine is dangerous for cardiac patients. The Drs are breaking their Hippocratic oath of do no harm by denying this Pt. Kid is a perfect example of someone who is so ignorant they don't know they are ignorant. I couldn't help myself. Asked did he have a degree in this? I knew his degree was in CJ. No? well I have 2 and have worked with transplant pts, know folks who are on the transplant team and know candidates. Isn't that nice, he replied. Everyone claims to know someone and my degrees mean nothing if I am not willing to stick to the 'do no harm'.
                              Shared a link with info- he came back with he has reviewed all the AHA and CDC have published. He knows what is right.
                              More comments about do they screen out people who smoke or drink??
                              Yes, they do.
                              How dare they claim people screen out if they smoke/drink to excess because you know the patients all lie. Its all a scam.

                              I must know that if I were adhering to the oath I had to admit he would get an organ. And Drs have no integrity.
                              Sure. If there were enough organs we could waste them on people who were likely to fail and we had a way to protect against infectious disease but.... Welcome to healthcare- we don't do everyone gets a trophy (organ). Criteria is based on data collected over decades. His emotion doesn't override stats and medical evidence.

                              I made some comment that of course he won't be asking for medical help because they are so untrustworthy. (This kid has severe anaphylaxis with any exposure to certain allergens and has spent his fair share of time being saved by those pesky, lying Docs.)

                              Meanwhile I am reliving the times that patients died waiting, patients failed being a donor, patients had the transplant fail, patients couldn't afford to donate or get the organ. And I have a guy I know commenting on my FB post (BBC article) who is waiting for an organ and listing all the things they have to agree to- appropriate- to get on the list.

                              The Orange Lump of Sh1t has a lot to answer for. He singlehandedly has made it acceptable to denigrate expertise, espouse harmful policies, actively promote stupid.

                              The kid I was messaging with is not a bad person. He is very ignorant and surrounded by people who prop up his ignorance and encourage it. When people say the GOP sheep will wake up- no. They won't. This is similar to the dynamic you see with abused defending the abusers. Rile up the outrage enough and they will never see they are being beaten to death.

                              This whole thing has me sick at heart.
