      • Fox News, of all channels, just cut away from Trump's Klan Rally to point out Trump's lies and call him out for making sh*t up.

          gas has been flat for the last year and down over the last several. So transportation costs aren't it. Energy costs have been somewhat flat IIRC, maybe slightly higher. Sugar has indeed doubled in five years, so maybe HFCS has too and maybe that explains it?

            It's almost like one part of the anti-fasc coalition is entitled and utterly un-self-aware of their fat, gap-toothed priviledge, and will never know, since they are spoonfed a comforting message by corporate media because they will never actually make any substantive changes to the status quo, and indeed can always be depended upon to betray the cause as soon as they are mildly inconvenienced.

                  Seriously...what are you even talking about?

                  Everyone has their ox to gore, I just find the far lefts to be rather strange. It's fine they still support Biden which is all I care about.

                  I do find it cute that you think your Bougie Arse is some Leftist though. You are farther away from the people Im talking about than I am dude. Just cause you wax philosophical and quote Leftists at your cocktail parties doesn't make you part of the movement. Trust me they don't like you or me either. And I'm fine with that I still support them as long a s they don't make a detrimental decision come November. (Which most vow not to do)

                    Cardboard dumpsters in Maine get dumped into the same truck as trash dumpsters. I'm not sure where stuff that has bottle deposit on it goes but wouldn't shock me it that stuff hit landfills also.

                      Maybe your backwoods state should do something about that.

                          That is embarrassing...and not just cause it is her home state.

                          Exit polling via Faux (lol) says 59% of Haley voters won't vote for Trump.

                          He is winning big but overall his numbers seem very soft.

                          Edit: here is some of what im talking about.

                          https://www.threads.net/@ryanstruyk/...c4MTIwNjQ2YQ==

                          CNN exit polls in South Carolina primary:
                          White evangelical Christians:
                          75% Trump
                          24% Haley

                          Everyone else:
                          51% Haley
                          49% Trump

                                It's an open primary state when the Democrats didn't really have one. It really wasn't that close
