You can have my Oxford comma when you pry it from my cold, dead, and lifeless hands.

The biggest difference for me is waking up every morning wondering what disaster has befallen us overnight.
Never had that problem with Obama.

The biggest difference is abstract. Obama truly believes in American values, and can articulate them, while The Donald can't grasp abstract concepts.

Sorry, I had to fix that.

^^ I'm not sure about the entire Right Wing, Gary. There are conservatives such as George Will and David Brooks whom I respect even when I don't agree with them. They do seem to be in the minority, however.

I had lunch with a friend today and we both only half-joked about which country we'd move to if Trump gets re-elected. :mellow: I picked New Zealand, he chose Costa Rica.

Don't confuse Republicans with Right Wingers. Years ago, I'd been thinking of moving to New Zealand. *sigh* No chance of it now.


Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the U.S. is really bad. Much worse than South Korea, Germany, etc.”

True, but we were just comparing presidents. Right Wing, Left Wing-- pretty much any ideology involves compromising abstract thought.

Reducing any philosophy to an ideology is bad-- but, as with anything else, there's a spectrum.

There was an article on CNN today about an Exodus of Blacks from the country. I'd worry if I still took CNN seriously.
"We're last, which means we're first." Kind of hard to argue with that, since that's how he got elected. :lol:
