Quote from: Hoofer on April 16, 2021, 09:43:31 AMPutting my formerly LIBERAL thinking cap on, I hurts, gonna try hard, hope it doesn't make sense, just a feeling.Liberals always root for the underdog, it's in their nature. They *want* to see the greater power, "cut down to size" - even if it's *their* guy, it's just not FAIR to have someone like Tom Brady win so many Superbowls, there are other teams "deserving" to get a win. Winning, you see, always hurts someone else's feelings, Liberals are the "Deacon Blues" (Steely Dan) - they want a prize for the losers in life.For the USA to be turned tail and run from Putin, I can hear them saying privately, "Well, it's about TIME! It took Putin to stand up to America the Imperialist, greedy Capitalist nation!" They'd like nothing less than China take a chunk out of our economy, apologies to Iran (with cash).Forget we're the freest country on earth, we've got more people incarcerated than any other country, where they just shoot political dissidents, run them over with tanks, or chain them to factory machinery for slave labor. We're just a *bad* country, and need to be taught-a-lesson, Harris & Biden are gonna help with the punishment.Ouch...

Quote from: Possum on April 16, 2021, 09:35:56 AMAgree, the big question is why. What is biden ready to give away? How bad is he being blackmailed? Does russia have the goods on the election, or hunter, or joe? Or who is pulling his strings? I'm guessing he's being blackmailed.
Quote from: Solar on April 16, 2021, 09:32:31 AMYes, the more boneheaded, the better is what they think. They hate this country and they'll do everything they can in the short time they're in office to destroy it.
Quote from: Hoofer on April 16, 2021, 11:07:37 AMSomehow... I think this is also linked to Biden pulling our ships back. We might WIN! ahem, can't have that, draft women, even things up a little.https://www.theepochtimes.com/dont-accept-legal-challenge-to-all-male-military-draft-doj-urges-supreme-court_3778153.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReportDon't Accept Legal Challenge to All-Male Military Draft, DOJ Urges Supreme Court"In 1981, the Supreme Court ruled 6–3 in Rostker v. Goldberg that the Military Selective Service Act, under which men, but not women, are required to register for the draft, survived constitutional scrutiny because women at that time were categorically prohibited from serving in combat roles. Because the primary purpose of registration was to replace combat troops, the court stated, "the existence of the combat restrictions clearly indicates the basis for Congress' decision to exempt women from registration."Although the Department of Defense rescinded the ban on women in combat in 2013, the obligation to register for the draft remains limited to men. From age 18 to 26, men are required to submit their information to the Selective Service System in case a draft is deemed necessary in the future."-snip-"CMR's Supreme Court brief acknowledges that some women have proved themselves capable of meeting the high standards that combat demands and previous policies regarding women in combat billets have been repealed, but "the physiological differences between men and women have not been repealed."-snip-""Noticeably absent from the government's brief is any argument that men-only registration is constitutional. That is not surprising given that men-only registration is outdated, based on gender stereotypes, and no longer recommended by the military itself," she told The Epoch Times."Rather than try to defend men-only registration, the government asks the Supreme Court to give Congress more time to update the law. But President Carter made the same ask in 1980, and Congress hasn't fixed the problem despite having 40 years to do so. .."OMG.... In just a couple of months - This isn't gonna be the USA my father fought for in WW2.
