  1. The Problem With Jon Stewart is that he thinks the answer to every issue is more centralized federal government, more taxation, and more spending when, almost always, the solution is less centralized federal government, more local control, strong borders with border enforcement and legal immigration of people who love freedom and have something positive to bring to America, not just a flood of welfare recipients who can be scared into voting one way lest their gubmint check be threatened.

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help. ” — Ronald Reagan

    The Problem With Apple is that they’re too stupid and/or too insulated inside their liberal Kalifornia echo chamber to realize that the king of American late-night television, beating out Jimmy Fallon on NBC, Jimmy Kimmel on ABC, and Stephen Colbert on CBS, is Greg Gutfeld on the Fox News Channel.

    We don’t need yet another Dem/Lib/Prog mouthpiece, Apple. We have more than enough, thanks.

    A smart company would provide a sane, conservative voice and reap the rewards, but Apple would never do that because they want to contribute to the endless leftist gaslighting and brainwashing, as if we need more of that!

    Illegal Immigrants Arrested in FY 2020 Had Average of Four Criminal Convictions or Charges Each

    Convictions or criminal charges of the aliens arrested also included 1,800 homicide-related crimes, 1,600 kidnappings, 37,000 assaults, and 10,000 sex crimes, according to ICE data. Further, ICE announced that in FY 2020 they had successfully deported 185,884 immigrants. Of those, 4,276 were known or suspected gang members, 675 of whom are believed to be members of the brutal gang MS-13. It was also reported that 31 were known or suspected terrorists.

    Then Biden was installed…

          1. You have refuted nothing. Saying you’ve refuted something is not the same as actually refuting it, soy boy.

            Go ahead, make the case for more government spending by a federal government that’s $28.8 trillion in debt and counting and whose great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off, but who’ll likely die a painful death from a Chinese bullet in the default wars which arise from it.

            Go ahead, make the case that strong borders with border enforcement and legal immigration of people who love freedom and have something positive to bring to America — not just a flood of welfare recipients who can be scared into voting one way lest their gubmint check be threatened — is bad for America.

            Go ahead, make the case that COVID is oh-so-dire and requires multiple innoculations and multiple mask-wearing forever, when your fauxident+ho puppets let 200+K illegal aliens stream over the border and, without testing them or offering vaccines or even masks, transports them to every state to “settle” (i.e. steal, rape, murder, run drugs, foment terrorist cells, etc.).

            Go ahead, it’ll be amusing to us thinking people to watch you, a blooming idiot, try to actually refute my points.

            1. Everyone wants to cut government spending… on the other guy. But those taxes pay for the military, law enforcement, border enforcement, and courts too. The same common sense that tells you we need military should also tell you that democracies don’t work without a well educated public with time and resources to understand the issues. Without that, people will just elect the biggest blowhard dictator. Maybe that explains a lot about republican priorities.

              Strong borders require… taxes! You don’t think all those border agents and walls are going to pay for themselves do you? Tell me how much welfare goes to illegal immigrants, and how much goes to corporate bonuses and subsidies for millionaires. How much does Haliburton charge the US military for gas that the military assures is available?

              We would be done with masks by now if the idiot republicans had gotten vaccinated and worn masks for a month or two after.

              Again, the problems you state about immigration come from lack of funding. You have demanded higher taxes in this discussion more than I have, and you don’t even know you’ve done it.

            2. Tau Myx obviously a clueless programmed prog that cannot reason intelligently regarding politics and you have refuted NOTHING of First Then posts.

              Your laughable DEFLECTION to Republican dictators is a thinly veiled reference to former President Trump. Obviously, you do not know the definition of a dictator and totally ignorant of the Covid dictator currently occupying the White House.

              Biden has thoroughly dismantled border security allowing and encouraging hundreds of thousands of Covid positive illegals and record number of illegal drugs to flood our Southern border, I don’t read anywhere in your posts, you have a problem with that.

              “We would be done with masks by now if the idiot republicans had gotten vaccinated and worn masks for a month or two after.”

              You post a total falsehood that is laughable! Republicans or Democrats or Independents do not have the power to get vaccinated and stop Covid. How f*ckin stupid can you be? Covid virus, similar to the flu virus, has been around for hundreds of years. The only difference present day is the media hype focus to empower Democrat dictators of cities and states locking down their people and influencing the last presidential election.

              “Again, the problems you state about immigration come from lack of funding.”

              Lack of funding for immigration??? Since when are U.S. taxpayers on the hook paying for ILLEGAL immigration?

              Get a grip, brainless…

    1. I can’t help noticing that you didn’t even bother to specify any problems before attacking Biden’s “solution”. Is “less government” the solution to border control? How about ground zero mosques? Or abortions? Law enforcement and courts are… Government! Want less of that? Conservatives always want more government for their own interests, and less for the other guy. Not exactly enlightened.

      1. “I can’t help noticing that you didn’t even bother to specify any problems bla bla bla.”

        Your “arguments” are just too disjointed and confusing to rebut. Is that a debate tactic you intentionally use or are you just nuts?
