So you must not get it (because you're a red-blooded socialist).
LOL sure. I'm more pub than dem, but it's easy to see the hypocrisy on both sides when you stop trying to place your identity in one.

I probably harp on the pubs more right now, but that's because they went way off the deep end with Trump and their worship.

Romney, McCain, W, Dole all got my votes. I still think Romney would have been a hell of a president. He called Russia and made Obama look f*cking stupid on that. If anyone could have come up with a comprehensive healthcare plan and kept it private it would be him. So many good things.

Big Sasse and Bacon fan. Love Stothert here in Omaha.

Just think Pubs lost their way with Trump. As soon as he got the nomination, I dropped out of the party. The real sad part is I don't feel like pubs are offering anything of substance as a platform right now, except oppose everything.


I would definitely come back if they offered up a decent candidate at some point. There is never ever a chance of me registering democrat. NEVER. I will always be libertarian or Pub if they can find their way back to fiscal conservatism and compassionate conservatism.

LOL

First...this guy has never heard the phrase, "If it bleeds it leads" apparently. News sensationalizing is the rule, not the exception. It drives ratings, it is what it is and if you're not a pub or a dem, it's super obvious on all sides.

Second...you honestly believe....like really honestly...that Fox and OANN and Newsmax don't use fear as a driver of ratings as much as CNN/MSNBC? Like for real, that something you really believe?

Actually, I was going to ask if that was YOU on the video. You are the HOL version of PNN when you were posting the weekly stats about Covid, and then magically, when Biden gets elected, both you and PNN removed your statistics. You posted I think one time since Biden was elected about Covid. YOU are fake news @sklarbodds. You're peddling in fear and propaganda. YOU're the one to blame - don't point fingers at Fox, OANN and Newsmax, you're using the exact same tactics.

Biden was elected in November. Sklar did not stop posting covid updates until around February when Biden finally got the numbers to come back down.

Lol I was actually going to post one today, just haven't finished it yet.

I'm not posting them because the numbers are declining and we're nearing the end, but I'll get you one today friend. Thanks for checking in

I also didn't post them much over the summer when the numbers were down. So it seems like I'm actually super consistent about only paying them when they're skyrocketing
I think you should start posting them again. Give Biden the credit he deserves for decreasing the numbers so quickly once he took office.

Pretty amazing turnaround from the presidency of the orange man who shall remain nameless.

LOL.

CNN twists, Fox twists, etc. etc.

"OMG THAT IS SO SHOCKING" -- No independent ever
Ok. CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS. all lean at the very least left. Fox Right. ok seems fair to me. I mean honestly. This shit should piss all of us off. The Media needs to be held accountable for this. All I want is the ****ing truth!

But the truth is usually boring and un-fear driving, so it doesn't sell. We like to watch shit that scares us I guess 🤷‍♂️

And I fully agree they are all trash and need something done with them.

Absolutely
and yet you seem to defend the act more then agreeing with the fact cnn seems to be doing crap that is not at the very least un-ethical reporting? Now I will admit I have no clue who this guy is but if he is who the video claims he is this kind of crap is unacceptable and imo needs to be considered a criminal act.

Since you are not protesting that Fox uses unethical fear tactics, does that mean you are defending Fox's practice of fear mongering?

Not one bit but. I have ZERO problem calling any kind of bullshit out. Problem is when people get force feed stats and numbers driven by an agenda this is a HUGE problem. It needs to stop and people need to pay.

You stating that Biden had ANYTHING to do with 'defeating Covid' undermines your credibility as a poster, a lot...

Okay here inline OUR biggest problem. Fact is a standing Presadeint very much has the power to effect certain outcomes when things like this happen. Now one can argue whether or not he is doing the right thing but to discredit his opinion if unfair.

would you say ppl are 'wearing masks and social distancing' more or less right now compared to this time last year? And Biden had zero to do with the vaccine. ??
