2020 Dumpster Fire (Enter at your own risk)

Recommended Posts

Redneksioux should feel safe leaving home by next summer. Fauci said there should be 50M vaccine doses by November, 100M by December  and 700M by April..........but let's face it that if that actually happens that still won't be the end game. Doomsday bedwetters across the nation like some on this site will  still not be satisfied because the versus isn't  "gone". Zero cases for this fear mongering ignorant "cult" is what they want to see. These people have and want no end game to this other than that...no cases. A viable vaccine and masks.....not enough. They want no "normal" ever again.

US Constitution Article II, Section 1, paragraph 2:

Quote

"Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, ..."

That says the State Legislature has final say on Electors (i.e. who casts the state's votes in the Electoral College). The Legislature can say by popular vote results. They can say by their own decision and vote. They could say the Governor picks. They could say the head football coach of the largest HS in the state picks electors. It's the Legislature's call ultimately. (We're just used to the Legislature using popular vote as the mechanism.) 

 

The beauty? Those legislators face re-election after their actions. ;)

Is this the same "The Atlantic" that last week claimed Trump berated veterans who died in war? 

Yes.  

Because he did.  

But, go ahead and try to discredit a legitimate source.

Of course they do.  They swore an oath to uphold our Constitution, not an oath to uphold a cult.

More than 200 retired generals and admirals endorsed Joe Biden for president in a letter published Thursday, saying he had the character and judgment to serve as commander-in-chief instead of President Donald Trump, who has failed "to meet challenges large or small."

You'd have to actually leave your house to bring one of them to Oxbow, so I think you are safe there.

The Generals Are Hardly Objective, Unbiased Observers

Needless to say, this view of the generals veers far from the reality. Moreover, the generals may now be morally and ideologically compromised by their deep ties to weapons manufacturers and the corporate boards on which many generals serve.

In a blistering article published at the American Conservative last week, Hunter Derensis explains how the image of American generals as selfless public servants is long past its expiration date:

Perhaps Trump learned the hard way that the generals of the forever wars don’t measure up to the twentieth-century soldiers he adulated growing up.

For instance, when George Marshall oversaw the deployment of 8.3 million GIs across four continents in World War II, he did so with the assistance of only three other four-star generals. In retirement, Marshall refused to sit on any corporate boards, and passed on multiple lucrative book deals, lest he give the impression that he was profiting from his military record. As he told one publisher, “he had not spent his life serving the government in order to sell his life story to the Saturday Evening Post.”

Contrast that to the bloated, top-heavy military establishment of today, where an unprecedented forty-one four-star generals oversee only 1.3 million men[-] and women-at-arms. These men, selected and groomed because of their safe habits, spend years patting themselves on the back for managing wars-not-won, awaiting the day they can cash in. According to an analysis by The Boston Globe, in the mid-1990s nearly 50% of three- and four-star generals went on to work as consultants or executives for the arms industry. In 2006, at the height of the Iraq War, that number swelled to over 80% of retirees.

The examples are as endless as America’s foreign occupations: former Director of Naval Intelligence Jack Dorsett joined the board of Northrop-Grumman; he was later followed by former Air Force Chief of Staff Mark Welsh; meanwhile, former Vice Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff James Cartwright went to Raytheon; former Chairs of the Joint Chiefs—the highest ranking position in the military—William J. Crowe, John Shalikashvili, Richard Myers, and Joseph Dunford went on to work for General Dynamics, Boeing, Northrop-Grumman, and Lockheed-Martin, respectively.

Those that serve in the military deserve the utmost respect for the time they put in.  It is possible to question their current motivations without discrediting their past accomplishments.  I've yet to run into a high ranking officer that retired from the military and then just threw his/her hands up and said, "well, that's it" time to sit on the porch and drink lemonade until I die.  Typically they have high paying lobbying/advising/civilian govt/contractor jobs lined up to start the Monday after the Friday that they retire.  I would like to see a description of what those retired high ranking officers are currently doing and where their paycheck is coming from.  Undoubtedly some on the list truly do think Trump is bad and their intentions are good.  But don't fall into the trap of thinking that just because they served in the military that they aren't capable of having ulterior motives in their post military careers.

Maybe believing in the sanctity of our form of government is an ulterior motive. 

Got it.

This was the case when we had a draft. Now that average, middle class people aren't compelled to join the military, there's less reason to blindly respect our troops. Do you respect the MS 13 members who joined the military to receive combat training?

Nice.  Obviously not blind to the extent that you respect the ones that beat their wives or the gang members that enter just for weapons training......but to the average Joe/Jill that signs up and gives it their best when there were easier options out there ....yes they deserve respect.  True there aren't alot of rich kids that sign up, but there is a larger portion of middle class people that sign up than you might want to believe.

If those numbers are even close to accurate, it would appear that residents in those states are concerned about their safety.  Seems like a law and order platform might be well received in those battleground states.

Gun sales spike among African-Americans: 'Our ancestors died for us to vote, they also died for us to be able to carry guns'

And while various demographic groups are buying guns in 2020, African-Americans account for the highest increase in gun purchases of any group.

Of course they would.  Many of their businesses have been burning down by Antifa and BLM.
