Re: This War Is Very Depressing To Me
My biggest fear is that we will suffer massive inflation

Not gonna happen. The US has many tools to combat inflation. We have used none yet. The primary reason we have not used any is that the current inflation is being caused by corporations' price gouging and reaping huge profits. The economy at large is not causing inflation. Unfettered, unregulated capitalism is.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

I'd ask for a link to the source, but we all know you are incapable of that.

Re: PaulK is missing the point (plus telling lies).
But I am not lying. If I were you could provide evidence.

Can we please have posters that back their assertions with actual facts and sources?

Re: What happened to the "Fairness Doctrine"?
Would be interested to know where he is from. From his sentence structure and unfamiliarity with the spelling of certain words he is seemingly not from the USA.
No one in the USA would spell it "cool aid".

Right wing pecking order view of society
It is what I call the right-wing pecking order vision of society. They know that a fair number of people will support them if they are convinced that no matter how low they are in the order or how bad their life is, there is someone lower on the pecking order than they are.

Re: Facts for the factually challenged on what an abstain vote means.
Political science professor Bheki Mngomezulu, a black man, said

“Of course, it doesn’t paint the country in a positive light, more especially because part of South Africa’s foreign policy agenda is to respect human rights, and in this case it’s clear that the human rights of the Ukrainians [have] been affected,”
