  1. If y’all haven’t checked out The Social Dilemma on Netflix, it explains a lot about where we are today, and where we’re heading.

    • @Lynn Adamson Learning to read and write to grade12 level is elemental stuff. Scary.

    • Yes, it was excellent and you can just look around to see that it is a true assessment

    • IncognitoTorpedo | December 9, 2020 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      @Lynn Adamson Ivy League schools don’t fix the brokenness. You need to live in an affluent area that has good public schools, or send your kids to an expensive private high school.

    • @Lynn Adamson Sorry, Lynn, I taught 12th grade for 35 years and the education is available. Schools have 3D printers and Robotics classes, TV studios better than local news stations. Before Covid highly motivated students took AP classes. Others kept up grades to be accepted into colleges and to meet C averages for graduation requirements. Many students show minimal interest in preparing for their futures. We need apprenticeships in high school leading to employment upon graduation.

    • Education is not the problem….

      There are people with Ph.D. that do not believe in Science but in holly books…

      There are people WITHOUT Ph.D. with more common sense / rational thinking than those with high education…

      …….

      Ignorance…. Fanaticism…. Manipulation…. Stupidity…. Mental Laziness…. Are the real problem…and Religion / christianity in particular….is the MAIN SOURCE OF ALL OF THEM….

      MEGA christian churches across the country / christian schools…ARE NOTHING BUT CENTERS OF IGNORANCE MANIPULATION THEY ARE NOTHING BUT CENTERS OF MENTAL SLAVERY….

      I HAVE NOTHING AGAINTS…..christianity as a PERSONAL Philosophy of living….but…..christiamity as a POLITICAL TOOL….THAT IS THE PROBLEM…..

      for….it createst a RADICALIZED SOCIETY……THAT CLOSES ITS EARS / MIND TO ANYTHING THAT AGAINTS THEIR PERSONAL BELIEVES …….and SADLY THIS COUNTRY IS DEEPLY christian…..MEANING…..IT IS DEEPLY FANATIC…..

    GEORGIA – Please save America again !!
    VOTE Ossoff and Warnock to the Senate
    STOP Mitch McConnell, make the Senate even and fair

    • Let’s do this GEORGIA!👍💙💙💙💙💙💙

    • @William H Music 2020 Then 19 states will be losers … like you and your stupid video.

    • @TheBase1aransas I think, if you haven’t already, you should donate your life savings to Trump’s defense fund.

    • @Benjamin de Montgomery Or dies. 😁

      @E Hole I second @Carriemchardy Carrie plea from Europe. The United States currently appear to the world like the worst banana republic. China and Russia couldn’t have inflicted more harm to your country than these republicans. The corruptness of this party and their president is as astounding as the naivity of their supporters. Vote Perdue + Löffler out! Bring reason back not only to the WH but also to the Senate!

  3. I have said for 25 yrs that Republicans are aiming for a one party system. Their party. We are in great trouble. This is not funny.

    • The thing is though, their base has been shrinking, the country’s demographics have changed and they know it’s only a matter of time before they are out of power forever.
      This current situation is their last gasp, their final desperate fight to hang onto power. They are trying to get as much done as they can to make as much money as they can before things change permanently.

    • @Jerry Caires Jr Don’t give him any oxygen. R Couch isn’t worth your time

    • DDKaraokeOutlaw | December 9, 2020 at 10:16 PM | Reply

      @Buff Straw You’re wasting your time replying to him.

    • @Randy Couch3 hours ago, “@Brian Korth Biden and Harris hate the police and love the BLM thugs”
      Randy, You either don’t understand, or you are intentionally misrepresenting Biden and Harris. Meanwhile, straighten up and fly right!

    • And yes, I agree and I find it rather an interesting thing that they claim to be Christians and they’re the ones headed for a ONE WORLD ORDER, which is what the bible speaks about. I believe there is evil on both sides of the political fence but these guys take the cake. They use the pro life agenda as their platform to get unsuspecting people to follow them off the cliff. Our forefathers were about the separation of Church and state and the bible has plenty of examples whereby Jesus said it was a good thing for church and govt. to be separate from one another. We can see why today that was a good thing then and it is a good thing now.

    Trump and GOP would gladly ditch democracy and go unchecked w trump as a dictator!!

    The most hilarious part is Trumps own judges went against him LOL.

    • @William H Music 2020 Aren’t you tired of losing by now? You’ve been posting stupid things since forever…. oh, wait, you must be a mindless bot!

    • I’m glad that they reinforced the fundamental truth that judges don’t belong to politicians just because they appointed them. They were never “Trump’s judges.” We need to strip that from our vocabularies altogether.

    • @Jariel : I hope not because the virus is doing a pretty good job with the help of trump & company. I wish his enablers had the ⚽️⚾️🏀🏐🏈s to do something. Ability to go above trump and take action. It’s very hard to believe that we have all these useless politicians and not many are really good for the country or our constitution isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

      @Popi Bart No they aren’t when you sheep lie you should at least make it believable.

    • Yet it’s pretty sad that we find that hilarious….

    Trump asks Supreme Court to invalidate millions of votes in battleground states. Well, we saw this coming.

    I never thought I’d say this about an American President but Trump has a little Hitler in him, in another age he’d make himself Dictator for life.

    • surely you joke, mein failüre | December 10, 2020 at 12:00 AM | Reply

      Rest assured, if the Republicans can overturn all the votes that aren’t for Trump, there won’t be any more fair elections.

    • @Hull Style Productions Change the World https://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trumps-ex-wife-once-said-he-kept-a-book-of-hitlers-speeches-by-his-bed-2015-8?amp Are you aware that Ivana Trump, Trumps first wife, said Donald kept a book of Hitler speeches by his bedside. I studied History in college and concentrated heavy on WWII. Some of the things, such as painting his opponents as Far Left Socialist, are methods Hitler used in his rise to power. He used a lot of fear mongering and was very critical of his opponents. Ivana Trump said in a 1990 interview with Vanity Fair that the book of speeches called New Order written by Hitler he kept by his bedside and read from it regularly . I didn’t know that about the color red with Nazis. I always kind of wondered if he wanted a similar gimmick as the Brown Shirts of Germany. Never thought about it till now, but he could have even gotten the Make America Great ideal from Hitler. Hitler was basically able to con the Germans by promising to make Germany great again. World War I reparations really hurt Germany financially and very much weakened their power. Hitler promised to give them their influence on the world stage back and strengthen them economically. He even promised to close the borders. I would not doubt he got a lot of bad ideas from that book. The man is mental.

    • he’s trying to do it now don’t you remember him mentioning expanding presidential term limits?

      Just a LITTLE Hitler !!!!!??

    • Think of the atrocities he would be capable of if untethered by our checks and balances.

  11. Where were those 6 during the Senate Impeachment trial ? Or for the hundreds lies & bad policy’s ?

    • @My Own Private Idaho I was hoping he would run against Trump for president, in the primaries.. I would have voted for him.

    • @John Dough I watched it. The whole world watched it!! That’s exactly why we voted trumpty dumpty and his spineless cronies out of our White House!!!
      He’s gone!!
      There’s nothing you can do about it!!
      you can keep falling for their b*******, but here in the real world we’re not.

      @Emsley Wyatt …I listened to Murkowski the other night on the way home from work. Have never heard her speak before. She was just so nice and clearly wanted to please everyone. But she declined to say who she voted for.

      I will always appreciate that she, Collins and McCain saved Obamacare.

      @Carol Rapson …the dark side? You mean being a Republican?

  12. Scared of their “Timothy McVeigh” base.

    • @Nonewhere Listens If Trump declares martial law and unleashes his version of Hitler’s SS on U.S. citizens, the markets will crash and unemployment will go through the ceiling. We will be in a civil war if that happens. Trump and his thug force will not prevail against the U.S. and its allies. They will fail, but not before doing immeasurable damage. Millions could die, mostly unarmed civilians.

      @Ron Roast I think it was George Washington who had to put down the Whiskey Rebellion with US troops. Biden may be forced in to a similar corner.

      I agree with your comment. It’s sickning !!! So glad he’s voted out. Trump has damaged this country enough with the Pandemic and Economy and now is causing violence and destruction with his comments over are Democracy. He’s a Danger and Threat to thos country and Democracy. Your Fired Trump !!!

    • It’s not a political party. It’s a cult.

    • @Craig Houghton Biden is already the President elect of the United States, like it or not he will become the 46 president of this nation, if you don’t like democracy, go to N Korea or Russia!

      @S McDonald If your Republican go for it. For all the ones voting for Democrats its on January 5th.

    • @Justice Matters I don’t live in Georgia. I am just repeating what Trump said last week. He made an error and asked republicans to vote for Purdue and Leoffler on JUNE 5th. It was all over the news.

    • @Reece Reece explain what you mean by that.

    • Melanie Cotterell | December 10, 2020 at 12:50 AM | Reply

      please take a long walk on a short pier.

    • I am not a prophet and I don’t play on TV but I am a Christian and I truly believe the Lord’s will WILL be that the Democrats win the senate. The reason I believe that is that I believe God is sovereign and has allowed Biden in office. I also believe the Lord sees the corruption within the Republican party (not all of the people are corrupt but the ones who continue to embolden the president and engage in his dangerous clown show theatrics are indeed) and will not allow them to win the senate. Either way, regardless of whether they win or lose, God’s will will NOT be thwarted.

    If Trump was president during WW2, he’d make America an ally of Nazi Germany

    • after over 5 years of acting like hitler, mussolini, peron and marcos, you now see trump has a “little” hitler in him? what gave it away? his 5 years of lies? his corruption? his crimes? his bullying and thuggery? his murdering of over 250,000 americans? MAN, i’m sure glad you decided to open your eyes! BUT LIKE MOST AMERICANS – YOU ARE 5 YEARS TOO LATE!

    • @Iceborn 🎯

    • Hate to tell you but Corporate America was an ally of Nazi Germany until it wasn’t profitable anymore. Funny how Americans don’t really know their true history as a country except for only propagandized version of exceptionalism.

    Spilled fascist blood makes democratic grass grow green.

  18. I was super worried about the tea party, but that was the start of what we see today…. now it’s just UBER SCARY!!!

  19. Do Republicans really think that Democrats won’t fight for this country?

  20. This election was always about Democracy vs Dictatorship.
