Another crowning achievement by Gov TrumpWannabe.

Aw too bad trump didn't get re elected or this would be our entire country right now.

I love seeing red states suffer from their own stupidity.

My favorite new excuse is "well dems MADE us refuse vaccines by being pro-vaccine!"

Stay safe DR Floridians... Danni, RCade etc.

I know you will

Take advantage of the preventive measures we are lucky to have.

Give the losers a wide berth.

----, this is an easy one to fix. Elect Andrew Cuomo governor.

Tell me again about Cuomo's mistake with the nursing homes, righties.

DeathSentence has outpaced every Dem possible on piss poor performance in the pandemic yet they still criticize the Dems for it while saying DeathSentence should be POTUS.

How f&^%ing stupid can you be?

More refrigerated trailers ought to solve the problem.

DeathSentence has had the luxury of a year and a half of how to prevent the nursing home deaths, yet the pretend librul wants to pretend 2021 is comparable to 2020.

Just throw them into the hole left from the condo collapse.

I guess that happened during Cuomo's reign of terror in FLA too.

This is the most critical part of DeSantis' failure that I try to drive home every single time some idiot swoons over him.

The vast majority of deaths, disease and failures under DeSantis have occurred when we knew enough to prevent them. And that is inexcusable.

Wow. That sounds exactly like what a liberal would say.

Not.

#11 - " That sounds exactly like what a liberal would say."

Indeed. Liberals are not afraid to hide from their sins and do not protect those who commit them. Progressives, however, are blind to the weakness of their own as you clearly admit to being with your "not".

Liberals accept their mistakes and learn from them and can joke about their own who are weak. Progressives like you pretend it's a blasphemy to call out one of your own.

It's obvious which you are, my dear, dishonest, Donnerboy.

I didn't even have to read the topic of the thread. I just saw Jakester was active on the thread and knew if I clicked it he'd be whining about liberals, even on a thread about how republican policies are killing people.

I was right.

#14 - ""Small minds discuss people. Average minds discuss events. Great minds discuss ideas"

I know this offends you, speaksoftly, because you are unable to discuss the topic. You always discuss the people who write posts with which you disagree. You despise being reminded of what you are and what you do here.

Prove me wrong. Your post #14 is of course a small minded comment about me. See if you can step out of that small minded mindset and comment on what I wrote. Can you dispute it? If so, please do.

Or continue being a small mind and whining every time you are reminded of it with Mrs Roosevelt's spot on quote.

I'll wait and see which you choose to do. If you can muster up the courage to shift from small to medium or great mind, prove it to us.

Not only I, but those who seek more than childish name calling here thank you.

Isn't it interesting that the only people who object to Eleanor Roosevelt's quote are those who spend their time here insulting people and rarely, if ever discuss the topic?

I've never seen any of the people who discuss ideas object to it. Not a single one.

Think about that, and let it sink in, ye with small minds.

Donnerboy has more integrity, morals, soilid values, and judgement in the tip of his finger than you do in your entire body.

Actually, I was responding to donnerboy. I did not gratuitously bring him up. But you know that, troll.

"It's just like old times!"

Indeed.

Jeez. What a mistake it was to loosen up the killfiles. As snoofy said, "Just like old times.

Killfiles back on. Maybe I'll check back in another week or two and see if anything has changed.

Back on topic after Donnerboy hijacked the thread:

Again, can't this be fixed ala Andrew Cuomo?

Tiny minds post the same quote every day thinking it makes them seem intellectual. Do you know a single other quote?

I entered this thread just to see if YOU were discussing the topic. And surprise surprise you weren't. You were whining about progressives instead. Deflecting from republican failures just like you do on every single thread.

Maybe mrs roosevelt said something memorable about fascists posting as liberals while fighting to advance the cause of fascism?

Or maybe she has a nice quote about posters who have to get new usernames after they embarrass themselves too badly under their old username?

#24 - I never knew refusing to read what one doesn't want to was the sign of a small mind. I guess I need to start reading Harlequin romance novels lest I be labeled a small mind.

On second thought, no. I'll continue to shy away from things I don't want to read -- like childish insults. Label me how you wish, Bruseaz. It matters not to me.

Why do progressives denigrate people who don't wish to read what they want to? I don't put people down because they like to read cheap drive by insults and don't want to remain on topic. Why don't they give me the same consideration because I don't want to read that crap?

Control freaks is my guess. "READ WHAT I THINK YOU SHOULD, OR YOU ARE A SMALL MIND!".

Got it, Bruce. I don't agree, though.

Is that OK with you? Can we agree to disagree and move on?

"From the guy who has to exert total control over who he sees posts from."

Yes. I also have control over which magazines I read. I have control over which newspapers I read. I have control over which personalities I read. I have control over which blogs I visit. I have control over which topics I read here.

You think I shouldn't have such control? You think as a progressive you should control my reading habits? Geez. how ------- arrogant and self-centered is that?

And thanks for proving you were completely unable to discuss a real idea and had to continue with the small minded talking about people stuff.

To everyone -- especially -- speaksoftly:

I told you so.

Back to killfiles with you, speaksoftly. Feel free to ramble on how I hate reading childish drivel and how I would rather read about the topics than myself even though you think I should.

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue:
No good in a bed
But fine up against a wall

Isn't it weird how some people think I shouldn't have control over my body (specifically eyes) and read what I want to read without question or ridicule, but feel women should have control over their body without question? I think just as a woman should have control over her uterus, I should have control over my eyes. And neither of us should be questioned for our choices.

I wonder if those folks can spell hypocrisy?

Oh so sad.

You had a habit of making every thread about you in the past too loser.

So you got banned.

Now you come back with a new name.

How many names has it been for you? I'm still on my first one.

Do you have your next one picked out yet?
