McCain was a good man and a hero. I voted for him proudly.

We've lost our way in discourse which started a long, long time ago for varying reasons. The hatred of anyone on the right pushed by the media (Bush is Hitler!), and social media pushing us into our bubbles and saying this is the only acceptable way to be and think and if you do not you are not just bad person but evil, seditious, and must be stopped, then you have the Trump factor: he was so horrible, such a piece of shit but the media, he was gold and loads and loads of money.

Places like RD we can talk and come to differences and agree to disagree like adults. That has gone from the public square and now the public square are the loud obnoxious assholes on social media on the left and right.

In terms of political discussion and politics, I think we can safely add "If I had a dollar if I questioned "is it reasonable?" "is it logical?" "is it politics" I'd be a millionaire" to our bank of "I'd be a millionaire if."

I had to share this one. A pro-Trump protester at the Capitol has seemingly looked up the Georgia flag through Google & gave it no further thought. The flag that he or she is waving around here is namely of the European / Asian country of Georgia and not of the US state of Georgia  Laugh bounce Tongue

Sorry, but the loud obnoxious assholes who rioted and stormed the Capitol were not from the left. This is not a time for the “both sides” argument.

I'm not talking about them specifically, I'm talking about the generic people screaming at each other on the internet and the loss of dialogue due to social media, where the idiots are all the amplified voices you hear instead of rational normal people.

And the internet has also provided a nice place for people like those assholes to create their Trump cult and do what they did yesterday.

What we are seeing is the result of 20 years of continual poison dripping into the well, which started with President Bush.  The years of calling him a Nazi, a fascist are now coming home to roost.  Imagine, if a journalist back then said "hey, that's not appropriate to call President Bush a Nazi."  As far as I'm concerned, journalists lost their moral compass during the Bush years.  While I was watching my grandma being abused, the news should have been a source for facts to bring me down from those emotions and frustrations, not a source to add to them.

Not only do I want Trump and every single politician from all sides of the aisle for the past four years on the screen apologizing for riots, but I want every single journalist, ON THEIR KNEES, apologizing for the past 20 years of poison they have sown.  They are just as culpable, even more so, for this violence.

I just want to live my life, in a manner that I see fit.  I just want to make money, determine how I spend it or who I give it to, and be left alone.

Actually it started with Reagan (government IS the problem) and the current dirty tricks started with Newt Gingrich. The riots we saw today is the culmination of 40 years of greed disguised as nationalism.

Agree about Reagan. “Trickle down economics” my a**.

I was personally amazed and found it incomprehensible that one could go this far (in a country like the United States). In my opinion, Trump in particular has done the country more bad than good ...

Mitch McConnell is even more to blame.

The online reaction of a former US colleague of mine:

"...I am going to be "political" sorry...NOT sorry!!! As most anyone whose read my post, I think ‘at times’ I’ve hinted as to where my political affinity lies. So given my ‘slight’  discomfort with a Joe Biden presidency, I think it only right to call a Spade a Spade and give some equal time an analysis to his Pompous, Arrogant, and Bombastic opponent!
I have listened to everyone else’s hatred, rhetoric and outright lies for the last four years, so now I am having my say.  If you don’t like it, you know where the delete button is.  Let me be clear, I am not a Biden fan. I think he is corrupt, a liar, a racist bigot, is in bed with China and probably suffering from dementia.  He has done nothing to improve anything in his 47-year political career.  But what has Trump done in the past 4 years?
The "arrogant" man in the White House brokered four Middle East Peace Accords, something that 71 years of political intervention and endless war failed to produce.
The "buffoon" in the White House is the first president that has not engaged us in a foreign war since Eisenhower.
The "racist" in the White House has had the greatest impact on the economy, bringing jobs, and lowering unemployment to the Black and Latino population of ANY other president. Ever.
The "liar" in the White House has exposed the deep, widespread, and long-standing corruption in the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the Republican and Democratic parties.
The "buffoon" in the White House turned NATO around and had them start paying their dues.
The "fool" in the White House neutralized the North Koreans and stopped them sending missiles toward Japan, and threatening the West Coast of the US.
The "xenophobe" in the White House turned our relationship with the Chinese around, brought hundreds of business back to the US, and revived the economy.
This same “clown” lowered your taxes, increased the standard deduction on your IRS return from $12,500 to $24,400  for married couples and caused the stock market to rise to record levels, positively impacting the retirement accounts of tens of millions of citizens.
The “clown” in the White House fast-tracked the development of multiple COVID Vaccines which are now available or will be soon.  And yet we still don't have a vaccine for SARS, Bird Flu, Ebola, or a host of diseases that arose during previous administrations.
The “clown” in the White House rebuilt our military which the Obama administration crippled and fired 214 key generals and admirals in his first year of office.
I got it, you don't like him. Many of you utterly hate and despise him. How special of you. He is serving you and ALL the American people. What are you doing besides calling him names and laughing about him catching the China virus?  Some of you were even hoping that COVID would be the cause of his demise. (Ah, the left.  The party of “tolerance”. )
Please educate me again as to what Biden has accomplished for America in his 47 years in office, besides making the whole Biden family richer?  By the way, where is Hunter?
I’ll take the “clown” any day versus a fork tongued, smooth talking hypocritical corrupt liar.  I want a strong leader who isn’t afraid to kick some ass when needed. I don’t need a fatherly figure.  I don’t need a liar.  That's what Hollywood, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and the New York Times are for.
Call me a chump, a racist, or part of the basket of deplorables. I do not care!
God bless Donald Trump - the best, most unappreciated President in U.S. history.
Feel free to copy/paste, I did...🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸..."




My taxes went up. Only the very wealthy got their taxes lowered. It was a complete heist from the middle to the upper upper classes.

And nobody seems to realize here that trickle down doesn’t work, and if the majority of Americans are at or below the poverty line, then the rest of us will suffer as well. Not to mention that huge income disparity is a time tested recipe for revolution.

You'll wait a long time before I find a care to give about terrorist that died during the coup but a couple of their deaths are hilarious!   Supercontent  The woman trampled was carrying a "Don't tread on me" flag  Laughing and a guy was trying to pry a painting off a wall when he tazzed himself in the balls and had a heart attack.  I'm still so upset and emotional but this made my day.  

I believe the Capitol Police has been infiltrated by goons, I'm fearful they won't protect Biden when he's on the Hill.  Sad

It must have been quite scary for the people who work inside to have that mob descend on them.
I really hope that all this talk of something happening when Biden is inaugurated is just bluster from these people and nothing more.
