Well great then! Carry on! Business as usual! Let the rich and powerful keep running the country and lying to the people in order to pad their own pockets! Jolly good!


What do you want me to do? Boycott grapes? You know fuck-all about me and my efforts against or in support of the "rich and powerful". I'm just making fun of rant-threads about "US administrations" carrying on in obscure little internet forums in which most of the membership live nowhere fucking near the US. You're bitching about what somebody said in Nowheresville, where we are, and which implies a model of politics to which I do not subscribe.

Oh, is that what you’re doing? :lol:

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

It sounded like you were OK with this. That you think that it's a necessary part of running a government.

Don't know if it's necessary, but it's pretty common among the governments I've seen.

What would it sound like if I weren't "OK with this"?

Business as usual! Let the rich and powerful keep running the country and lying to the people in order to pad their own pockets!


What should I do to stop the rich and powerful from running the country? Publish whiny little antifa rants in some obscure corner of the internet? Spew innuendo about someone else's "being OK with it" if they don't hop on my bandwagon? I'm not uninformed, if that's what you mean:

If you knew what you were talking about, it would be a little easier for you to understand what I'm talking about.

Why are you changing the subject? We were talking about mean people on Twitter.


See what I mean? If you knew what you were talking about, it would be a little easier for you to understand what Hermit is talking about.

You don't care to understand what anyone else is talking about. You're just shouting what you think is your message into what you think is a megaphone.

If you knew what you were talking about, you wouldn't confuse yourself into suggesting that because somebody doesn't tag along to your megaphone party, they're actually supporting what you imagine you're ranting against.
