    I guess trolling can be considered a worthy MAGA trait, but it's not one of the three pillars of the MAGA stool which are, to remind you: hypocrisy, ignorance and prevarication.

    Nice.

    I just noted that you joined this forum a month and change before I did way back in 2011.

    Hard to believe, isn't it. I joined the Slate Fray in late 2001 and began sparring with Arkady (under a different name) and now 17 years later neither of us has made a dent in the lunacy of the other one.

    Yeah.. making something up and calling it MAGA because you want to be a troll, is well, trolling. Sad that this is what you have become.

    Agreed. I liked him better when he was just an obnoxious progreSSive, not an obnoxious progreSSive pretending (poorly) to be an obnoxious conservative.

    Better to be dependent on a family and a ruling class, and to never weaken these props of state power, right? And better to take advice from a 1700-year-old book whose interpreters are forbidden on pain of eternal torment from subjecting to rational criticism, too, I suppose.

    I've read more than 2/3 of it. It contains a few pieces of good advice, such as, "thou shalt not kill," among a multitude of bad advice, such as, "you may take male and female slaves from the nations around you." Of course, if you applied "thou shalt not kill" consistently you would ignore many of the Bible's positive commands and you would also insist that your entire family be fully vaccinated.

    No better to be free to choose who you want to align with and what you want to believe and raise your children in peace.

    Until no one goes hungry, there is no peace.

    Being forced to have to provide for others you have no allegiance to or interest in is the exact opposite of peace and the reason why there is none.

    You mean like when working people are forced to provide for the rich as the very basis of the capitalist system and the reason it requires state violence for its maintenance?

    No. No one makes those people work. No matter where you are, the jungles of South America, the plains of Africa - you have to work to survive. The nature of that work is different but the result is the same. You need to care for and work towards your own survival. If you want the modern conveniences that capitalism provides, then you need to go work for someoen else. If you want to go off to some undeveloped land and start a commune, there are still places were you can do so. Don't let the door hit you in the ass. But then don't act like you are entitled to use the stuff - that others have created through capitalism.

    From your assumption that people can just get free land to work, I guess I can surmise that you are the heir of a railroad fortune and you think that the rest of us can get free land because that's what your ancestors did.

    "Free land to work". No since you eschew property ownership why would you want "free land". There are still places in this world where you can go, eek out and existence and they are so removed from laws and regulations no one would even know you are living off the land.

    Of all the posters here ( name not mentioned ) this one is the densest, most prejudiced, hateful and consistently vituperous one.... Then you have the DNC professionals ( names not mentioned ) who actually think they pass as casual posters....it's a laugh.

    As near as I can tell....You call someone dense if they disagree with your fact free opinions...and they are DNC professionals if they bring facts that you cannot refute.

    Sadly, you and most other right wing republicans here, when losing the debate, resort to attacks on other posters because you are unable to actually deal with the issues.

    I have become full MAGA, and I'm not even sorry you are sad about it.

    Now, don't you have dinner to cook, kids to swaddle, a man to please or some other MAGA duty to perform?
