So if we take the average, we have there are no conspiracies, and the laptop story wasn't suppressed.

So everything is right with America...On average, the  temperature is just fine...we have our head in the oven, and feet in the freezer

Most of you deserve what you are gonna be getting, so determined are you to remain married to untenable positions and to keep punting the official narrative, whilst even your dearly beloved legacy media are beginning to blink and switch stories. Soz to the innocent bystanders.....you deserved better. Kurt, can you not move to another country?
 
Nope.  Stuck here for medical reasons. 

I have a very short leash.  Me and the Cleveland Clinic are joined at the hip.

If I was healthy, I would be looking for somewhere else.  Instead I am just digging in and preparing for the worst.

All this talk about red pills.  Had to look that up.

It is going to be real hard for a lot of people when they find out that the real conspiracy is that there is no other conspiracy theory other than the one telling them to think that there is.

Once you realize that the DNA of the GOP is threat or prediction, without substance, it takes up a lot less brain time. Everyone makes predictions, so those are easy to find everywhere. But they're worse than weathermen, and are wrong so often it's not worth the anxiety they try to generate.

Thanks for helping me prove my point: you fixate on diversions because someone like Hannity or Carlson tells you they're important. Yet you can't even form your own opinion when Trump is recorded trying to get the 2020 GA vote fixed and Trump confirms the recording is accurate.
Don't forget all the government documents Trump wouldn't return. I guess the FBI didn't plant them all 'cause Trump says they're his! Any thoughts on the fake Electors that Trump tried to install? And Trump would NEVER have wanted the January 6 protesters to storm the Capitol Building, right?
 
You're simply not being serious or you would not be using all the pretty little gifs to help make your points.

As long as you believe that your news sources are impeccable (because they agree with you) and all others are suspect at best, what is there to discuss ?

Just one little thingy we did learn from Durham that has not led to an indictment but is mighty important in the big picture is that the FBI tried to get Christopher Steele to take $1 million and say that his dossier was true and correct.  That deal fell through.  Were you aware of this ? 

You may not care about this, but there are those who think that the FBI trying to bribe a witness is a big deal.  And that we need to know who were the people involved in the FBI.  Throwing around $1 million has to have some sort of paper trail.  That money has to come from somewhere.  Someone has to sign for it.  The days of the gov paying people with AMEX travelers cheques is long gone.  

So enjoy your little gifs and trust your sources without question.  Only worry about Trump.  Nothing else matters.  You'll be just fine.

Oh, one last question, asking for a friend ... You're ok with the "ten percent for the big guy" ?  Nothing to see there ?

Do seriously believe that Elon Musk is going to uncover some great pro-left techno-conspiracy? Apparently you'll swallow any lie or fantasy as long as it feeds into your fears and insecurities. 

What happened to Durham and Obamagate and Trump's claims of a rigged 2020 election? I guess those didn't work out for ya so you've glommed onto another promise of scandal. There's a sucker born every minute, I guess. 

What I love about you, Kurt, is that you seem to be right up to date on news and rumors working against Democrats BUT you are willfully ignorant about news and scandals working against Trump. 

Did you ever get around to reading about Trump's January 2021 phone call with Brad Raffensperger? Here, let me refresh your memory:


In an hour-long phone call on Saturday, Donald Trump pressed Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s victory there in the election the president refuses to concede. 

The Washington Post obtained a tape of the “extraordinary” conversation, which Trump acknowledged on Twitter. 

Raffensperger is a Republican who has become a bête noire among Trump supporters for repeatedly saying Biden’s win in his state was fair. In one of a number of parries, he said: “Well, Mr President, the challenge that you have is, the data you have is wrong.” 

Trump said: “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.” 

He insisted: “There’s no way I lost Georgia. There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.” 

Trump did not win Georgia, which went Democratic for the first time since 1992. Its result has been certified. Attempts to pressure Republicans in other battleground states have failed, as have the vast majority of challenges to results in court.




As for Elon: I'm very impressed with is willingness to massively overpay for Twitter and promptly run it into the ground. Twitter is in a death spiral. The only thing sustaining it right now is the lack of similarly sized competitive platforms. The way things are going, that lack won't last long.
