To be fair I do call people out my side and usually take heat for it. We don't have to agree with a specific person or position just because our respective party does, it takes away our individuality. No harm in calling someone out from your own party.
How many seats in congress do you think COVID deaths caused them? I mean direct votes - voters who died who could or would have pushed republicans who lost by narrow margins over the edge? Impossible to know, but I would wager there's going to be at least one republican out of a job that may have held on had they not vilified masks, social distancing, Fauci, vaccines, etc.
Since you live in NY, what were your thoughts on Cuomo sending COVID + patients back to nursing homes?
Nope, says all we need about you. Liz answered intelligently and if you weren't looking for a chance to pounce you would realize it wasn't whataboutism. Given your posting history, we need not worry about you being cognizant of that.Actually, it was calling out all of you who call me out for it yet when someone on "your side" does it, crickets.
If you think it is wrong, then you should think it is wrong for anyone to do it. Says more about you than me.
Given posting history and failures to back up claims, whataboutism is a concerted effort of *ahem* some to deflect and/or distract.Whataboutism is probably half-reflex for a lot of us by now. It's sometimes offered as anecdote but can also be a generalization. The question becomes whether it's always meant as distraction.
Don't look at me. I stayed out of it.
Enjoy. I've seen the four previous seasons so will check out S5 once I have Netflix back. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through your comments.I'm outta here. Gonna go see how much pickin' on members of the British royal family happens in the rest of Season 5 of The Crown, which so far I can't stop watching but basically disapprove of since the thing interpolates so much conjecture between historically accurate portrayals. It starts to feel like somebody dropped clips from an American daytime reality TV show into a series of 19th century daguerreotypes.
Yikes Woman. Don't even put that out there!Surely some news outlet will notify my iPhone if Trump actually informs us later on that there will be no 2024 presidential election because his lawyers have finally determined that he was in fact made President for Life in 2020 despite rumors to contrary.
Oh I'm not surprised. I've been expecting it. Just still sad. But I don't blame her. She's served a long time plus with what happened to her husband (meant for herself), it's time to step away and live life. She's earned it.Not surprised by Pelosi stepping down. I think it was in the cards before the GOP regaining the majority these midterms. The attack on her husband (predicated on GOP rhetoric and actions that too many would like to ignore) and keeping her promise when she took reins last time made this decision easy.
You should worry about the flame throwing, hate spewing so-called Freedom Caucus that McCarthy has to contend with. The last time the GOP had all three branches in their claws they simply pushed through tax cuts for their big biz donors. With the Senate as a firewall, McCarthy will have absolutely no room for error. Let's see if he avoids being another Paul Ryan.Have they shown any inclination to do so in the past?
