I had to wear masks on an airplane recently and it sucked. 

It's their right to require it.  You could have always refused the service and jumped off!

Boris Johnson is a "conservative" isn't he? Excuse me while I lol at "UK conservative" as some sort of meaningful label.

Maybe we should start an “anti-gun” organization.

I have a buddy that lives there, from the UK. He leans on the conservative side and is fine with it for several reasons. 1. The vaccination rates are still pretty low there. I think it is less than 20% of the population is fully vaccination. 2. Their level of risk tolerance there is low. He says, they look at us and think we are insane for the amount of deaths we have had and that we are failing given the number of vaccines available and our rates. 

He agrees it sucks, but then he says, looking at the alternative, like here, and the deaths, he is fine with it.  

Like nearly all things...it is a matter of perspective. 

He sounds just as conservative as you are a moderate.

Call them dumb or whatever for not getting vaccinated but not buying any part of the lack of availability or access.

Yeah add me as another one who calls bullshit . Anybody that wants the vaccine by now can make it happen.

A simple “no thanks” and waking out is the only worthy response if you’d rather not. It sends the message without being a prick. 

I still frequent one place (Indian takeout) that requires masks to pick up food. But it’s an incredibly sweet couple about my mom’s age and they make incredible Indian food. I hate masks but I know how to pick my battles. 

And also like a normal freedom loving human you knew that it was their private business decision to maintain a mask policy.

Notice you avoided the topic again and went straight at the poster, which he somewhat did as well.


Care to explain BLM attacking the country they reside in again and sticking up for the communist dictatorship that is Cuba?


I have no idea what you are even talking about..

Why is the NFL even mass testing the best athletes in the world at this point?

I’m beyond tired of catering to people who didn’t get vaccinated. The NYT article I read about LA county masking back up stated that while a lot of people were vaccinated and thus protected from the Delta strain, there were still many not. Who fucking cares? That’s their problem at this point. I also don’t give a shit kids can’t get vaccinated. When were the children’s hospitals ever overrun? Remember when schools were returning to classroom learning and everyone against it said “it’s not about the students, it’s about protecting the staff!” 

Agreed, except I’ve long been tired of catering to ANYONE who still wants to live in fear. Your safety is not my responsibility nor is it the state’s. As I said a couple days ago, if you are still ok with ANY type of restrictions you can go fuck yourself.

The only people that care about any of this are already vaccinated. It's just that they're miserable people and want every one else to share their misery.

I would love to be in Europe during the parties for a World Cup or Euro being in the winning nation must have been awesome


Definitely a once in lifetime experience (potentially). I was actually supposed to be in Spain for work, but the trip got cancelled. I am glad it did.

If you are pro any (government mandated) covid restrictions at this point you can go fuck yourself.

It was pretty crazy in Italy on Sunday night.  I don’t think the country slept.

The only time street violence is ever mentioned is in response to someone questioning police/brutality. It’s literally the only time. 


This is literally not true at all.

Meanwhile, the invasion at the border...

I have a hard time seeing any significant differences that might simply be attributable to coming out of a pandemic.

Like I keep saying, the POTUS doesn't have nearly the power people believe he does.  Another unintended consequence of constantly claiming Trump was an autocrat - surely a "benevolent king" like Biden should be getting a lot more done than he has?

POTUS can make a grand show of signing a toothless executive order, or make a grandstanding speech....but, for the most part, significant & lasting action must necessarily begin in Congress.  And that explains why Dems are so concerned/upset with the filibuster.  They can't rely on the SCOTUS to uphold illegal executive orders, and they can't get 5 Republican votes much less 10 in the Senate.

Indeed. I've been hearing the same tired arguments my entire life on a wide arrange of topics that I find to range from unconvincing to utter bullshit. I don't consider myself unreasonable or illogical, as my entire career has been built off of my ability to reason through difficult problems and come up with logical solutions.

If that makes me an extremist, and therefor "bad" according to the beltway moderate opinion, I accept that gladly.

This, especially when it comes to the anti 2A.  They recycle the same lazy arguments every single time.
