  1. Sad all the censorship coming from thr demonrats. Your party.

  2. I’ve been watching recorded livestreams of the failed coup. A lot of people going to prison for a while. Many of them wandered in just like the sheep that they are.

  3. This morning, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone. You can’t justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind. We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us. Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President. Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans. Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now. Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights. People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves. After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquiries about it. People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees. Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated. Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcomed. $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not. If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free. And, pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”! Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it is racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right. The great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast.

    • This is your country thanks to the leftists who want to tear down the country. Until the people who make this country work push back (peacefully of course). It will continue nice to not make sense

      I agree completely. Your friends and family probably feel the same way you do. Who brings up politics? Technology moved too fast. I think all sides are confused and diverging from reality. People are fed endless counterpoints and snarky phrases. People are lazy, why study for the test if all the best answers are at your fingertips? Why look into anything when I have this great snarky counterpoint handed right to me?

      All the while, everyone ignores what their “side” is doing. For every poor decision, there’s another poor decision that the other side made, so it’s all good.

      “We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.”
      Most of Europe is collapsing?

      “People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.”
      Demand? How? You vote or you don’t for a female president.

      “Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.”
      Who is arguing that? I think your mixing up criminals with all black people.

      “It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquiries about it.”

      I’m not familiar with Biden’s blackmail, but Trump did way more than “make an inquiry”. Biden might be wrong, but it doesn’t negate what Trump did. Just like Hillary’s private email server in her basement was a crime and half the country turned a blind eye.

      $5 billion for border security is too expensive

      $5 billion for a wall that solves a tiny fraction of the illegal immigration. $5 billion for a symbolic political statement. $5 billion could have went into something like bridges and infrastructure that is a-political and actually good for something. A wall will be worthless without maintainence. So, $5 billion wasted.

      We are heading for some hard times. The dollar’s inflation went up 20% before this recent stimulus and before this latest election. Everyone needs to quit this bs. Quit the well they did this terrible thing, so now it’s our turn to do a terrible thing. Death spiral.

    • You call yourself Anonfhproper. Is this a reference to Q anon? Are you a traitor?

  4. Mister Ripp you fought on foreign soil and defend Antifa and the left?
    Please tell us more how you feel.

    • I heard Antifa is made up to scare gullible fascists. I hear the radical right tried to subvert democracy and hold congress and senate hostage. The radical right is a minority who thinks voting doesn’t matter if they don’t win.

    • You sound like one of those traitors who attempted a coup. There’s a ton of live streams from Trump supporters that have been saved before they deleted them. You should look at the morons you associate with.
