FTFA: "In fairness, some preferential testing may have been justifiable for officials crucial to keeping government functioning during the onrushing crisis."

Yeah, I can't criticize the leaders of the executive, legislative or judiciary branches for needing access to COVID tests. It's their job to manage the crisis response so it makes sense for them to have that. There's lots of reasons to criticize things as 'corrupt.' This is not one of them.

We had Pendergast set the pattern. Now nothing ever gets done because everybody stands in line to receive a piece of whatever pie is available.

But protesting it doesn't matter, because they change the rules pretty often to suit themselves, anyway.

What part of the the executive, legislative, or judiciary cant do the job on zoom, besides regulation?  Do the executives drive garbage trucks?  Do the unload container ships on the dock?  Do they repair the fiber when some douchebag decides to dig?

The government is not a front line worker class.  They could have done all their work on zoom.

I've noticed the Fark Pol headlines have been getting significantly more "Fair" and "Balanced" these past couple of weeks.

Power is the most important thing in the universe.  "lets go brandon" hit 1, 2, 3, and 8 on the i-tunes top 100.  Bumping Adel (The Adel) to number 4.  The power is changing, therefore those who follow power will change.  It is the nature of nature.  Don't fight power, follow power.  Maybe your progeny will survive.  Fighting power will be a gamble against the odds.

When the power changes the other way, things will follow.  Like fark.  like companies traded on the stock exchange. Only people who don't care about success don't follow power.

Sorry that a David Duke-type conservaDem can't be making sure all of the headlines portray the Democrats in a positive light regardless of their corruption or inability to govern.

Sorry. I probably shouldn't have compared David Duke-type ConservaDems to David Duke, but my point is clear: BlueMAGA (aka Conservative Democrats who demand unflinching devotion to the Semocratic Party) is currently failing America and the headlines have changed to reflect that reality.

Lookit... I hate politicians as much as the next asshole but sh*t tends to get f*cky when they start dropping like flies.

F*ck... at this point I'm just happy to hear about US politicians even take it seriously.

And yes, I do like the idea of as much governmental and private business being done virtually now that we've seen the tech at work and society embracing it however they really can't just lock themselves in a room for two years.

I mean I have had that luxury but I'm not representing large swaths of people who are counting on me.

The Pubs are just pissed they lost their NYC elite punching bag because... well unlike what their side would do (turn them into a hero) he got efficiently booted right the f*ck out.

So ya... take care of your own house of gropers and pedos before you start barking around like you deserve a f*cking biscuit ya doinks.

I hate those f*ckers too but your bullsh*t is all about weakening them and letting the fascists get away with their full take over.

You are either a Trumper, an FUD troll or a left wing boogaloo idiot.

Whichever it is... f*ck off.

Did "lets go brandon not hit the 1, 2, 3, and 8 spots of I-tunes top 100?  If they did not, how did they simulataniously also hit those spots?  Am I from a different reality?  Or is the power balance changing, and if we all want to stay in the small power posts we have, will we all have to change?  We MUST destroy alternate time lines so that our good timeline is the only time line.


If I stay 100% pro biden, will I be safe?  Will Biden Gitmo those who are willing to gitmo me before they can gitmo me?  If not, how can I stay Pro biden?  Shouldn't I be Pro corn pop?  Whatever it takes to survive the changing political landscape?

Yanno... I don't think I've ever seen you attack anyone other than Democrats.

Curious that.

You are like the ultimate BSAB guy... except you pretend to be all lefty and righteous about it.

Not to be facetious but...isn't that your job?

I have a card carrying Communist buddy who thinks anything other than a full Trotsky style revolution (with all the murders and whatnot) is the ONLY option. Anything else is completely off the table.

Are you one of those types?

Because as I've told my friend multiple times... that is not my idea of a party in any sense of the term.

Are you one of "those people"?

Because I'm not gonna start murdering people because you have anger issues.

They learned THAT from the French Revolution. The French Monarchy was restored, not to mention either Napoleon.
