Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Ryan Cooper: Many hospital intensive care units are completely full in Texas, Florida, Arizona, and elsewhere, and there is every sign the outbreak will get much worse before it gets better. In response, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is laser-focused on ... immunizing companies from legal liability if they infect their customers or employees.

All they ever want is an "honest discussion" about "real issues" they said between giving each other rhetoric kiss's and pats on the back for purity

Yet no usual DR know-it-all-all-the-time can ever, and I mean ever, comment on a topic of real importance if it is not favorable to their "closely held beliefs" that previously they articulated with great confidence and repetition

This is why they can't learn. They are a threat to our economic future and our health

They need to be humiliated for what they built

This is what it means to live in a Capitalist country.

In fifty years, brave young entrepreneurs will wear Che t-shirts, except they will have Trump on it, and they will tell you that America under Trump was never "Real Capitalism."

As a matter of fact, plenty of people say what we have right now isn't real Capitalism.
They're as misguided as the people who say the USSR wan't true Communism.

I work with some feral Trumpers who are more than happy with the GOP response, buying into the Resident's hoax language and claiming that Dems only wanted to shut down the economy to hurt his reelection chances, in spite of the fact that nearly every other country in the world also shut down. We even argued over mask wearing, where I presented evidence from S. Korea, Austria, Germany, etc. about how mask wearing helped to significantly lower infection rates (in Austria by 90%). They refuse to listen, still claiming that it's no worse than the flu and making up stupid low morbidity rates, in spite of the 130+ bodies on 45's bloody hands. Just makes me so angry to see what he has turned this country into.

Dumbasses gonna dumbass. America is ------, I want the first space shuttle out of this toilet. I'm not proud to be American. I hate what we are and have always been. I wish I had been born elsewhere. I'm too old and feeble to emigrate at this point. I wish I was younger and less feeble.

GOP speakers are making plans to deliver their speeches via teleconference at the GOPiggie convention while the rank and file GOP attendees will stand on the floor passing the virus around like a giant frappe petri dish.

Great plan.

Dear leader demands his sacrifice to the virus god to prove his manlihood.

"Meanwhile, the school year is looming on the horizon like some dread monstrosity from beyond space-time."

So many Liberals and Liberal outlets are so smug and entitled these days they just like to make elegant sounding articles with no actual news only to spread hate and fear. Articles are only getting worse as Libs try to metaphorically one-up each other because image is much more important to them than reporting accurate and unbiased information.

Put it this way, follow the money in regards to your favorite media outlets. The profit they are probably making since Marchish has probably gone way up. Libs love to outwardly condemn money and rich people but their Gods of News are raking in the dough solely off of exploiting their Lib readers. This is such a whiny article, I should be surprised anyone would post it. But obviously with DR Libs the criteria for news is at an all-time low.

All the hand wringing about those lazy employees getting $600.00 per week, realize one pertinent fact that y'all don't seem to understand. All of the employers could order their employees back to work and if they refuse because they are afraid they will contract COVID, the employer can fire them and then they receive no benefits at all. None of y'all seemed to understand that pertinent fact though it has been widely reported on all normal news media which, I do realize, excludes Fox News which explains your ignorance.

What a big pile of doo doo even for Humfool. How are they exploiting us? I don't pay them a cent, well except for NPR who I give a few bucks to every month but they certainly aren't creating millionaires. Now, let's look at Fox News where people are paid millions to lie and you watch and believe every lie they tell. Now, really, who is being exploited. I don't expect you Humfool to know the answer but most people who post here will.

This week you watched Tucker Carlson calling Tammy Duckworth a coward. She's an Iraq war veteran who lost both legs after her helicopter crashed but she still managed to land it safely enough to save her crew. I'll just say this, anyone who watches a privileged white boy like Tucker insult a real veteran like that are themselves cowards, dopes and traitors to his country.

I know you none of you probably give a ---- about my opinion, but Al Jazeera probably does the best job of simply reporting news. Euro News would be next. I can't even watch Tucker Carlson or his left wing counterpart Rachel Maddow anymore.

I think that "smug" means an awful lot to Trumpites. They hate smugness. It makes them very sad. They hoped that Trump would wipe the smugness off liberal faces.

It's quite a thin reed to hang a political philosophy on, but then again they also have racism to color in the spaces (pun intended).

In Texas we had one hundred and five people die from COVID yesterday, a record. It's destroying the smug with the un-smug down here and yesterday, YESTERDAY, Donald Trump was again calling the disease a hoax.

I'm going to choose intelligent smugness over death-worshipping stupidity any day of the week. Texans are increasingly agreeing with me, as they reject the need to die to enhance Republican political fortunes.

Tucker can be amusing and instructive in regards to a certain state of mind.

Maddow can be brilliant. I can't imagine how you find very much fault in her, lest you are annoyed about facts and their renowned left-wing bias.

Let me tell you abut the modern Right-wing in Texas and Trumpism in particular. Especially in regards to COVID.

All of us dip into paranoia at times, I and Thou.

Trumpites and most Republicans, however, float on a sea of paranoia. They don't reference facts, or immediate reality. If one paranoid meme is disproven they switch seamlessly into another. They weren't disturbed that Jade Helm didn't led to the promised Obama invasion of Texas; they simply switched over to another paranoid theme.

NO effort was ever launched to discover those tunnels under abandoned Walmarts, even though those Walmarts all still remain, waiting I'm sure for a President Biden to make use of them again.

You (Trumpites) can only live lives this detached from reality to the extent that a majority of adults around you remains adaptive and sane and therefore able to protect and care for you.

Otherwise very bad things happen. Here's looking at you, Mississippi Legislature.

"I can't even watch Tucker Carlson or his left wing counterpart Rachel Maddow anymore."

Calling Maddow Carlson's counterpart say far more about you than it does about Maddow. It basically says, you recognize Carlson's dishonesty and partisan hackishness but you can't, because of your ideology, recognize Maddow's brilliance because they reveals the emptiness and harm that your ideology is responsible for every single day. She is rarely found wrong by fact checkers while Carlson call Tammy Duckworth a coward. Thinks about that and please respond, we all deserve tho read your post justifying your idiotic comments.

The hard truth is the American population is nothing more to Republicans and most Democrats than a commodity to be exploited to the fullest and when no longer profitable, cast aside.

But capitalism is the only way to go, and any attempt to improve it is socialism and thereby evil.

False equivalency and a lie. Democrats have been saying we should listen to Dr. Fauci don't blame us because Trump and the Republicans won't listen to scientists. Don't blame us because Republicans don't believe in science. But I do get your satirical sentence about Capitalism and Socialism.

She literally reminds me of Tucker Carlson. Only left-leaning. And both tend to be very preachy. I don't need to be lectured.

Re#24

Rachel Maddow is nothing like ------ Carlson. Not even close.

I never see Rachel spouting factually untrue statements with glib confidence like tucker does practically every day.

In fact she always allows her guests to fact check her and correct anything she says.

She is very educated. And speaks well on any subject. She rarely has to be corrected or apologize for anything.

I would love to see the two of them go at it.

She would slaughter him.

Cool. Let the Democrats exploit me while appointing non-federalist society judges, not attacking the ACA, and not running every single executive agency in bad faith. I'll take that exploitation over Trump's any day of the week.

He didn't make it that way.

He's just tapping into the greatest American resource there is-stupid voters who've been made stupid by a concerted campaign for decades to undermine education and destroy public debate and information.

We're seeing the fruit of the GOP's long term strategy.

Translation: People who have command of the English language, can think critically and have completed their degrees in higher education tried to warn us using big words and scientific reasoning, like they know more than we do. We shouted, "TRUMPTRUMPTRUMP!" in their faces and spiked our football, decided we did not want to wear masks or follow any of the liberal hoax fear mongering about coronavirus. Now that everything those liberals said is coming true, we think they're smug. Nobody says "I told you so" to me.
