I live fairly close the the nut cakes in The Villages and even some of them, (they are mostly right wingers) are now pissed that Trump ET AL wants to their or my head on the chopping block.  Only the Queen of hearts gets to say : "Off with your head", not Trump.

In 2016, Trump's hateful rhetoric caused America's dregs to vote with such deranged intensity that each of their ballots was actually tallied as 1.25 votes. I don't think he can pull that off this time.

The aholes who want grandparents to die for the economy are the same dicks who want the ten commandments on the steps of the court houses. Well, "Honor thy mother and father" very much covers not letting your elders farking die because it's become inconvenient to keep them around.

I had 3 conversations at work yesterday that were a variety of people wanting to "get back to normal" and promoting the hydroeirhjweotrhweoth drug. Haven't seen anyone say they'd change their vote yet.

He'll get them back with just a little more racism and throwing the kids (not theirs, those people who wipe their asses and console them when their actual crotchfruit won't call) on the fire.

He loves seniors. He just wants them to live the rest of what remains of their lives in hermetically sealed bunkers. They should be OK with that.

I think there was a 538 podcast where they said Trump's biggest supporters weren't Boomers, but Gen-Xers.

Special care is, and always will be, given to our beloved seniors (except me!).

Christ, it's always about Trump. Even when he's trying to woo someone, it comes back to "me, me, me"

Both my boomer parents (who are grandparents) are still fully on the Fox News/OAN bandwagon.  Like all republicans, for them to turn on Trump, it will likely take their own near death experience or death of a close relative.

If only it was a right to life. The moronic republican aholes see living as an obligation. You can't chose to stop exercising your right to living, if you are seriously ill and want to end your run with dignity. But now they're all about sacrificing old folks for the economy whether they want it or not.

I'm sorry you had to have those parents.  I'm a boomer, life-long liberal.  I"m a big fan of personal responsibility and I think it is incumbent upon all republican boomers to kiss doorknobs.

Seniors are really suffering right now. First they cant congregate at McDonald's at 4am and pretty soon they wont even have post offices to hang out at.

Ditto

Gen X here. My parents were Silent.

If they had lived I'm sure they would have life size cutouts of Trump to worship.

I am equally convinced I would have cut off all  contact with them and let them die alone and afraid.

You always predict that "leftists" (as you call anyone to the left of Hitler) are going to lose on every issue.
Historically, your record of success is practically zero.
Your only "win" in the past century has been electing the guy who is destroying the GOP and the American Right.
Kind of a Pyrrhic victory.

I've found that it's easier to communicate with mouth frothin' libs in their native tongue. The reality is that many businesses will adapt to mitigate risk of coronoavirus exposure.

Oh you think you've been winning eh? Then why the 3+ years of daily pissing and moaning here in the Fark politics tab over the weekly political ass whippings.

Interesting how quickly seniors went from being right-wing greedy geezers to gamgam and poppop as soon as that narrative suited Trump's critics.

Prove me wrong.
Protip: You can't.
Slavery: You lost.
Women's suffrage: You lost
The Third Reich: You lost.
New Deal: you lost.
Civil Rights: You lost.
Gay rights: You lost.
Gay Marriage: You lost.
Gun Control: Well. I'll give you that one.
Elect Drumft: Well, you "won" that one - but you are way premature to count it a victory.

Of course, when it goes pearshaped (and it most certainly will) you'll either be nowhere to be found or complaining that the libs didn't fix it.

We could set up a program where everyone over 30 is turned into food for those under 30. Anyone who tries to escape would be hunted down by a group of elite soldiers called Deep State. I think I saw a documentary about this idea. I think it was called The Running People.

Actually, the COVID virus attacks the overweight, asthmatic, lethargic, diabetic, COPD sufferers, and seniors which is about 95% of the Trump voters here in Tennessee.

Trump's a grandpa


That movie with Deniro, Bad Grandpa, wasn't it about a grandpa going on spring break with his grandson and trying to hook up with coeds?

I could see Trump doing that, just kidding.
I see Trump taking his middle school aged grandson somewhere and if he runs into a classmate Trump telling her to follow him on Twitter so he can slide into her dms
