False premise - we're not a first world country any more.

A mask with a hole cut out for his nose. What a piece of shiat Trump is, ugh

World's richest third world nation? People have been saying that in Canada and about Canada for, oh, let's say 60 years. If you look at some of the larger countries, even the richest one, the development is very spotty. There are rich coasts usually, and poor wilderness areas out back. China is heavily one-sided (East Coast), the USA is bi-coastal, and Canada hugs the border and hence the inhabitable, farmable land, for dear life. Russia has long been even more so, only the inhabitable area tends to hug the TransSiberian rather than the coast, except at the extreme ends in Kamatcha and the Baltic Area.

All these countries have vast numbers of peasants, and quite developed urban areas of great sophistication, which are roundly loathed or envied even a few hundred miles away in other urban areas.

Nothing to see here, people. Papers, please! In the USA everybody and their dog has a driver's licence so it isn't so noticeable, but the controls are just as strong and large areas are no-go areas full of Southern Sheriffs and the jails they fill with slaves, er, tourists and non-whites.

ImpendingCynic: False premise - we're not a first world country any more.


We can never not be a first-world nation.  Ordinal World is entirely about who's side you supported in the Cold War.

First World - US and NATO
Second World - USSR, China, and Warsaw Pact
Third World - Everybody else

That there is an economic aspect is an artifact of the two previous centuries of the First World systematically raping the rest of the world for resources to prop up their industrialization.  Unless the US develops a time machine and uses it to go back and not ally with itself, there is no way not to be First World.

Interestingly, there is still technically a Second World, since Communist China still exists.  Who knew they would win by just standing there while everyone else slapped each other silly.

Well, there's your problem, Subby.  Talking Facebook and Twitter.  If you have an account on either site, then your IQ's probably lower than the drinking age.

Trump is still just at the right numbers for re-election.

Amazing that this will be an uphill battle.

Which means the whole thing is bullshiat.

How about we call one group World 1 and the other group World A?
 
2020-05-28 2:54:49 PM  
Actually, in hindsight Trumpers are sure to love this thing.
 
2020-05-28 2:55:01 PM  
I'm surprised.

The GOP usually does much better attack ads than the ones they've produced this year.

2020-05-28 2:55:54 PM  
The Republican Party needs to be disbanded and outlawed. Liberals need to hold a super majority and outlaw their tactics and practices in order to ensure they never rise to power again. The never ending hate speech, calls for violence, racism and bigotry need to be felonies. This will also open the door to viable new parties that have the interest of America and its citizens in mind.

Can we really be called a first world country when we're mainly a client state of Saudi Arabia and Russia?

...I just can't believe how bad it is. Like, there have to be dozens of people who support this fascist and can also use Photoshop

They're really courting the "Hillary Clinton invented AIDS! Freedomeagle.facebook told me so," crowd.
 
2020-05-28 2:56:44 PM  
That's their campaign now?  "Virus can't hurt us.  We're too great".

Every time I think it's impossible for Trump and his supporters to get dumber, here we are...

That looks like straight up Pen and Pixel album art from 1997.

He was at 49% approval on the last Gallup poll. Obama was at 43% at this point in 2012.

They know they're screwed, so the campaign managers are grifting instead of doing anything productive.

Say what you will, Trump knows his people. That's aimed straight at the "only pussies are afraid of germs" group of morons who think being manly means not being slightly inconvenience by a mask for a few minutes now and then.

Somebody should get a public toilet challenge trending, encouraging "real men" to show how manly they are in the face of disease by dipping their hands in public toilets and then rubbing it all over their unprotected faces.
 
2020-05-28 2:58:38 PM  
I'm like 2 decades of rusty with Photoshop, but give me 5 minutes and I could turn that "boastful" Trump pic to be him standing in front of 100,000 caskets, easy.

ImpendingCynic: False premise - we're not a first world country any more.


Sadly, that's pretty much the only option to describe the US.

First world is Western developed nations
Second world is Communist nations
Third world is developing nations.

Unless you want to describe the US as communist, it would be hard to describe it as Third World. Developing implies that you're on a path towards a developed nation, not away from it.

So true, Biden has tiny flag. So tiny, not like Trump with huuuge American flag. Trump flag is so big it make Biden flag so puny.

538 has him at 42.6%, which has been a typical rating for him for much of his presidency.  Very little change pushed by current events.
 
2020-05-28 3:03:20 PM  
Not only stupid but incredibly violent and brutal and full of hate.
 
2020-05-28 3:03:36 PM  
I wonder if there's any actual polling data that shows wearing a face mask polls negatively, or that's just pulled from Trump's ass like most things he does.
 
2020-05-28 3:04:10 PM  
Trump Tower in Chicago was built with Chinese steel, Trump's hotel in Vegas was built with Chinese steel, most of Trumps and Ivanka's clothing lines are made in China, but it's Joe Biden who supports China huh?

OK, so we're third world.  4 decades of neglect via Republican grift and going all in on freeways and the military to the exclusion of almost everything else ruined us.

Haven't been for a while now. It's vindicating seeing the rest of the world catch up with this fact.

Actually, it's more like having them dip their hands in a public toilet and then rub them over -your- face.

No, 40% of people think that's a bad thing.  I'm pretty sure most people realize conservatives are delusional.

What gets me is now that every time someone coughs everyone takes note. With the covid deaths it makes me realize how unhealthy our society is. And you would think that it would sway public opinion for some much needed health care reforms of a broken system, but no. People are protesting to open bars & not wear masks. Give the people what they want I guess.
