    I won't vote for Biden either. New York almost always votes Democrat.

    It says what exactly? I subscribe to the George Carlin theory on voting. Garbage in, garbage out.

    Shut your pie hole, or Trump mushroom hole and tell us what your going to do to help fellow Americans during this crisis. You donít like your dear leader is critiqued then change the subject with something like that. I am a Republican and we donít wait for government to respond.

I have yet to see any reports of Americans banging the drums and wishing ill will on their neighbors hoping this virus takes out anyone. What I mostly see is people saying how bad our leader is and how much better they can do or someone else can do.
    Well I voted for the President and I wonít be again. Since I was in kindergarten I was taught what made America great is we can even dare to critique the president. Your asking to be removed from the board sounded pretty childish. All you have to do if you donít like the content is just show the self discipline and avoid the conversation. Am I right citizen ? I just got home from work since this morning where my wife and I are essential workers if I sound insensitive thatís why. But nothing I said is incorrect. If you donít like it donít ask someone to protect you, do it yourself by simply being disciplined.

    Send a check to a battle ground state for the opposition election committee. Take a stand either way. Just like I teach my daughter - you must vote, people have worked too hard and died for the right for you to fail to.

I guess my years living in China and other parts of Asia means nothing. I am currently living amongst the Kurds and cant wait for him to school me on that subject. I imagine the topic of China joins UN Human Rights Council panel despite troubling record means you are jumping for joy. Again I ask you to unsubscribe me. You have that power since you are a Mod.
    I am unable to unsubscribe you or ban without cause or reason, you ascribe more power than I possess. It is your prerogative to leave. Although I really don't understand the intensity of your reaction. First it wasn't my comment, only one I pasted from twitter. Two, I am not sure how the comment relates in any way to the diatribe about god and country and who you may take orders from! The Asia reference completely escapes me. Schooling you on the Kurds? WTF? The comment posted referenced the R's response to the 4 Americans killed in Benghazi as compared to the relative silence on the possibility of losing 250K American lives due to the virus.

    Yes it was a political comment, as are 90% of those posted here. You may disagree as is your right. However, am I not entitled the same right to voice a political opinion? It seems my most severe critics take issue with my politics, often accusing me of a biased perspective. Ironically you and the others are guilty of the same, but fail to see the similarity. All opinions are welcome here, regardless of politics or party. I have often said, intelligent people can always agree to disagree and still remain friends.

    I am a republican and a essential government worker in NYC. What your witnessing is the reaction to cultists deeply invested in their dear leader and realizing he failed them. They would rather not hear the criticism, they canít take it because it undermines them. The allowed themselves to believe he was going to save them and he simply is not. I voted for him, but I was never invested in him to the extent that others were. I have a cousin who has not spoken to me for years because I criticized Trump. Itís a cultish devotion by many. I voted for lots of people since I was 18, 39 years and I canít recall one of those politicians that I have not rebuffed when they warranted it. They want to be banned so they can feel they have been wronged, so they can say they are victims in the defense of their master. In defense of a cause. So they can feel aggrieved. Or so that they can be stopped from the compulsion they have to come and defend dear leader. They want you to make it easier for them. When all this person has to do is simply withdraw from a unwanted conversation.

    Clarity of thought and vision, well said my friend.

    I agree with the cult analogy 110%, as frightening as it is! I also think your idea about disillusionment and disappointment are right on the mark. When invested so heavily in a leader who fails you you left depleted with only one response. Sad.

    I never thought we would see this in the USA. All the years they have been fed a bag of goods from right wing radio and TV. They buy without examining the phrases ď Lame stream media ď, ď Libtards ď and call themselves ď Real Americans ď. I did it. It becomes habitual. What kept me from completely going down the rabbit hole is that my wife doesnít agree with that way of thinking and served as a balance. She is every bit a patriot and good person and is a Democrat so how could I depersonalize whole group of Democrats. Many of these folks simply have no meaningful contact with others of different political opinions. But it is very cult like. Many of these people will die for him, I have no doubt. If he loses this election people will commit suicide, mark my words.

    Today in NYC I witnessed a man who had severely cut his hand in an accident and when he arrived at the Montefiore Hospital ER was met by a doctor doing preliminary triage. Told the patient look, ordinarily we would see you. But if you choose to wait there is a good chance you may contract the virus. If you can move your fingers and donít feel like your too injured neurologically I will suggest you stitch up your hand yourself, you can go to a online site to learn how. Wait to see your primary doctor. Then gave the patient some bandages and gave the patient a bottle to wash out the wound with antiseptic. And people here are asking to be banned because their president is being criticized and it offends them.

    A few years ago, when the Paul Ryan House, and Senate Republicans passed a budget that was filled with so much pork and government spending I wondered where the fiscal conservatives were and the tea party members, you remember that . Do me a favor if your the judge of who is a conservative, produce for me proof you opposed that budget. And what are you going to do to help your fellow Americans in this crisis ? I already said earlier what I am going to do. But your behavior is typical of a cultist. In cults when a member questions the leader and religion, that person is labeled a non believer a person who is not like us, the pure believer. Since I understand what it is you do and why, I simply am not phased by https://www.cookman.edu/currentstude...0activity.html
