Well we are all doing just fine (“we” being myself, my wife, and our 3.5 year old).

None of us has gotten sick, but San Diego has been low in numbers compared to the rest of California and the nation, so that of course could change. But we are not going out much, and both of us are working at home. My wife could do it forever, given her line of work (but she does miss the camaraderie of her work environment). As a PE teacher, it has been interesting. I learned how to do exercise videos and how to create a YouTube channel. And been getting parents sweaty as much as kids.

And, as you can imagine from that, financially we are fine too. In fact, we are better off than we were before the pandemic and recession hit. We had a combined 2019 income of 148,000 and got a full stimulus check bonus. AND a 25% reduction in mortgage payments due to refinancing (yes, we did that).

The way the nation is heading though, this well being may only be temporary, as it will eventually bite all of us as a nation HARD unless drastic action is taken. And it starts with the need to VOTE (so be sure to do it)!

I left here, because there really wasn’t anyone to talk to anymore. Sure, I enjoyed chewing the fat once in a while with Chaski and mrmhead, but that was an echo chamber (you two are smart, so I know you don’t take offense in that, and I know you see it when I say that.). There really wasn’t anyone else to keep things alive for me here - I felt I was talking to a wall with my threads and posts - it became more of a self-edification/education thing than actual real conversation.

If Eagle and Dave ever returned, I would though. The three of us had a storied history on here when together.

Take care everyone, and stay safe.


Glad to hear you and your family are doing well.

i have evolved into something resembling those puritans after experiencing the rise of the whacko left these past 5 years.And perhaps you can help me with something that has puzzled me. the word 'progressive' is used to describe the values/viewpoint of the whacko left but the things they promote seem regressive and divisive to me.so,what actually qualifies them to use that label?



It is Orwellianism that allows them to claim to be "Progressive."

It is also Orwellianism that allows them to say that you are a Nazi if you do not accept Nazi ideas (like social justice against a privileged race), and support Nazi action (silencing dissenting voices, using violence against political opponents), etc.

However, the thing that really made it all possible is that they got people to believe that a Marxist and Socialist became right wing when they wrote a book called "The Doctrine of Fascism."

Without that first lie none of this would be possible.

Standing up / protecting rights and freedoms for HUMANS that may think, feel or look differently than you is whacko and regressive?



@offbeat Said

i think you have it the wrong way round. The whacko left are the ones putting restrictions on opinion and freedom of speech. It's one thing standing up for your beliefs and rights but it's another thing when they try to destroy the lives of those that disagree with them. [...] It's like we're living inside a George orwell novel.


What a beautiful illustration of the day we live in. The one who supports the group engaging in violence and trying to shut down speech through using Nazi tactics and rhetoric says it is the supporters of free speech who are the oppressive ones, and the other guy says, "mate, are you retarded?" And shakes his head in abject disbelief that someone could be that deceived.

How do you get to this point, MRM?

How do you get driven to a place that you honestly think people like me who want every one to be free to believe and say whatever they want [see footnote] irrespective of their skin colour, are the oppressive, racist, xenophobic, divisive hate filled bigots, and the people like you, the people who attack black people for thinking for themselves, bash old women, use violence to shut down speech, call their opponents hateful bigots etc., are the ones preaching tolerance and love? What was done inside your mind that made that seem reasonable?



Footnote
That freedom should only be limited by the usual things. Incitements to violence, slander etc., should not be legal.

Look at the white people full of tolerance and love attacking a black woman and calling her... wait for it, a white supremacist for not thinking like a black person should.

Please, tell me again about all that love and tolerance your kind has towards those who

This is a video of a Trump supporter being attacked. I had to put this in by hand as using the YouTube link did not work.


And remember, every single act of violence I show here is 100% because of the lies the media have been telling you - a fact you can no longer deny in discussion with me as I have given you proof of the media lying from before Trump was even elected.

But don't worry. You are the tolerant ones.







Try this little exercise - go to YouTube and type in "Trump supporters maced." There is plenty of examples of it, but if you look at YT all you see is Trump protesters being maced. Why? Because the media are lying frauds.



There is tonnes of this stuff, but YouTube tries to suppress it which is a little annoying. But when your side is the side of violent, gutless, racist thugs and bigots and you want to pretend you are the good guys, I suppose it makes sense that you would crush dissent and ban truth.

If a woman walks the street in a skirt she deserves to be attacked.

It was all her fault. She wanted to eat a meal at a restaurant, but she is a black person and Progressives don't like people like her so she had it coming. It is up to her to run away because progressives are incapable of acting like civilised human beings.

I am not sure that is what you meant, but that is what you said.

The thing that is so sad is that before this bulls*** started TFS used to be fun. We actually all got along reasonably well, but then suddenly I became a Nazi because I do not care about race.

This was supposed to be a thread where we got along and hopefully saw a few old faces, and it turned into this same old s***.

Sorry about this. We have reached a point where opposing political views can no longer be talked about. It worries me, but it is what it is.

If you can move these last few posts to the Trump thread that would be fine. If you want to delete them that's fine too.

I think my time here is rapidly ending.

both sides encouraged each others, didn't mater to me, she was black or white. she was going brother by them, because she was black. she should got up , said nothing, and left the restaurant. not surprise, if the cops were holding back laughing about the whole experience.

The technology to move posts does not exist here.
Frankly, I’d rather not delete. Then the narrative gets out I’m censoring speech. I’m sick and f***ing tired of that narrative.

I own my words and actions. Others can do the same.

Fair enough. I have no problem with anything I said. I just thought it would be nice to have a thread that does not go down the same path.

Anyway, it is what it is.
