    I thought that was a good article, for those open minded enough to give it consideration.

    In the debate reviews it caught my attention when Haley said..."Wednesday night’s presidential debate that Republicans need to be “honest” about the country’s appetite for abortion restrictions." And I thought, shoot they just need to be honest. Honest about election results, honest about climate change, honest about the integrity of our judicial system, honest about plans to restrict social security and Medicare. It's a long list.

    I agree. It was a very good article. But apparently some people aren’t as interested in discussing facts as they claim they are since they dismissed the article out of hand because of its source rather than disputing what was said in the article. I guess I’ll just go back to throwing insults at the traitor party since that’s all their defenders on this board are interested in doing.

    Well, this is the paper that fired its opinion editor for allowing a Tom Cotton opinion piece. I think itís safe to say the NYT has a fairly asymmetrical policy on what is and isnít acceptable.

    yes, I agree with the statement below and with other things in the article. As far as catastrophizeing I hardly think there’s a bigger set of catastrophizers than those those who become apoplectic at the idea of Trump and bring him up at every turn. There’s no question that Trump is not suited temperamentally for the top job. But despite the turmoil in the White House, our country chugged along between 2016 and 2020. If you didn’t think it did, then you are catastrophizeing, in my opinion.

    “…Those on different sides of these conflicts need to be willing to accept the possibility of losing. That’s the democratic deal: No election is ever the final election…”


    I am not a serious person.

    I imagine in some respect the courts and his advisers like Mad Dog Mathis can help keep Trump from catastrophe if he were elected. However, I wouldn't judge the Jan. 6 insurrections and subsequent fallout as "chugging along". In my eyes, this was a mockery of the constitution and an illustration of how dangerous the man can be.

    It chugged along even until and through the January 6 nonsense.

    of course, this article catastrophizes the idea that next time those institutions may not hold. Maybe so.

    Cool that you're doubling down on "I am not willing to actually discuss what someone said in an article. I'd rather just dismiss it because I don't like the source." Glad to see that all the sad Magas are consistent.

    Agree absolutely, Rogar. It was domestic terrorism.
