I'm doing what I want, as you are! Is it your claim that I have some duty to take your snide silly ass seriously?

As for 'change,' I gave up on you ages ago.

Actually, I'm more a 'we're all in this together' kind of guy. But some of us are more together than others....

Your key words being us and others.

FWIW, remove religion and Jesus of Nazareth's message is 'we're all in this together let's help each other out.'

You aren't really on team with me, are you.

Yes, I agree with you about J of N. But there are other concepts of Jesus about. Ever hear of 'Tory Jesus?'

I don't care what you do. But you look silly when you whine about my input here and then do the same shit you accuse me of.

The current exchange is not accusatory. It is merely fun-loving. But let me get this straight. I look silly because...I'm acting like you?

We all had the same information on Donald...four decades worth of misogyny, racism and grifting. Anyone who voted for him is an asshole.

Instead of constantly playing Trump's game and losing, the Dems might do well to listen to a bit of "wisdom from the Heartland".

https://www.politico.com/magazine/st...indiana-216273

[I]“The number of Democrats holding office across the nation is at its lowest point since the 1920s and the decline has been especially severe in rural America,” .
So, the last time Republicans held so many offices nationwide was during the decade that brought us a market so volatile that we hit highs "too good to be true" followed by crash so tragic that unemployment reached nearly 20% in much of the nation, thousands of businesses went bankrupt and Wall Street investors committed suicide, plummeting to the sidewalks below?

And, Whell sees this as a GOOD point to make?

Yep, he's still a dumbass.
