  1. This is Prima Facie evidence that society is insane. It’s bad enough that we no longer have a Separation of Powers, and everything is Political. Now we have Institutionalized Religion forcing its beliefs upon the people. At the same time that the right for lifer’s fight abortion, they are quick to let others die cruel and unusual deaths based upon their twisted view of what is right. Whatever happened to: To Each His /Her Own?

    1. I sympathise with your point of view 100%, Mr Case, but the reality is that “sane” people like you and me are in fact insane. We think that rationality, tolerance, nuance and compassion matter, but they don’t. We are the crazy ones. Sad but true.

      The wisest book ever written is “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”.

  2. Wait till we have President Trump….again. Basically if he want’s the job there is absolutely no one the Democrats can put up that can stand against him. Think about that for a second. The Democrats have become so corrupt, so incompetent, so evil, that the likes of the Orange Monster is a better option to many American citizens.

    The truth is this country is in the process of fracturing right now. Brother against brother, sister against sister, we are in for nothing less then a reckoning….think biblical and you will have the right idea. Those who rule in their attempt to maintain their control have successfully created a entire society, devoid of compassion, empathy, or community and full to the brim of self centered, ignorant, cult of me creatures.

    Those creatures will inflict themselves on the society that created them at the first opportunity. The entire economy is nothing but a giant ponzi time bomb. China has come to the conclusion that war with the madmen in Washington is inevitable and are preparing it’s military and it’s people for what they believe is the inevitable. On top of all this we have those who rule using Covid as a means to impose their totalitarian agenda.

    I sit back and watch the entire thing unraveling with ever quicker rapidity and shake my head in disgust and morbid fascination. I thought I would be gone from this world before it got really nasty. Now, I am not so sure.

    1. Yep, me too. There’s probably little chance the US will implode relatively peacefully like the Soviet Union did. I feel paralyzed, watching this slow-moving train wreck of a nation.

  3. Oh no, somebody wants to stop infanticide, the world is coming to an end!!!! Birth control isn’t that hard to come by anymore and abortion should not be a top form of birth control. The fact that a human life can be reduced to an arbitrary thing is in fact insane. A person who kills a pregnant woman is charged with 2 counts of murder, but an abortion is fine. Same with folks claiming there are 32 genders, etc. Better look in the mirror before you go saying one group of people are crazy, as the entire Western World has gone insane. Progressives included.

  4. The most interesting reasons for the fall of the Roman Empire was climate change and the Justinian plague. They had volcanic activities that triggered a mini ice age and the plagues and poxes weakened the Empire. Right now there are uncontrollable wildfires, killer heat waves, devastating droughts, and record breaking hurricanes.
    A large number of people have a death wish with Covid-19 and its variants. Along with gun violence and mass shootings, we are not much different the weaken of Rome. Are we head for a collapse – Morally or totally.???

  5. Will people ever tire of political cartoons perpetuating left-right political propaganda, with no sense of irony? My body, my choice! Except when it comes to having the fascist corporate state pump poison into human lab rats for a disease that doesn’t exist. What pathetically passes too much for the left today would be laughable, if it weren’t so demonically deadly. In Science We Trust (aka Science Is Real) is the techno-totalitarian translation of newspeak for Ignorance Is Strength.

    1. These are the posts that I normally delete, as moderator. The is then called censorship by those who don’t understand what editing a publication means (as opposed to, say, running an ISP, a social media platform or a public square, renting a hall, etc.). What does it possibly add to the conversation at this site to hear from people who have decided that COVID-19 is not even a real disease? Should I also allow the Stormfront racists, the Protocols of Zion anti-Semites, the Islamophobes and Q-Anons and people who believe the Democrat Party leaders are cannibals and human traffickers? The excellente grammar and spelling do not hid the fact that this poster has no facts to support such a bizarre claim, has done no autopsies on the bodies of the dead, has not spent time in the ICU wth the dying….

      1. It appears you will not permit my reply to get past your ‘moderation’. Are you ready yet to call yourself a censor?

      2. I am a moderator, and an editor, and these comments are part of the publication, just as in the letters to the editor section of any publication in printed history. That technology has changed to allow us to afford to publish ALL letters puts us under no obligation to do so. Still, I allow 98 percent of all comments. You can copy and paste your comment to try again if you think it was blocked in error.

  6. Sounds like the would be slaves have developed a steaming but rather worthless vocabulary to justify their subservience to the hierarchical, repressive order.

    “Disobedience is the the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be the slaves.” H. D. Thoreau

  7. Is it ‘inconvenient’ to ask: ‘Who takes responsibility for the aborted foetus, the Mother, the Father, the Doctor, all of them, or none of them?
