Well that's a bit ridiculous... Alaska and Hawaii are sovereign. The United States does not have the authority to sell them.

Where did I say, "sell"?

Catchy meme

But reading your responses has made my point. And a meme doesn’t change that.

Luckily for you, I'm aware of your limited comprehension acumen --- so the debate on this will end here.  Best regards @LMAO   :beer:

Yeah, I don’t blame you. You’re losing an argument, then  throw out  a meme, and then an insult, and then run away.

What’s the line about playing chess with a pigeon? When they’re losing, they scatter the pieces, crap on the board, and then claim they won the game… Lol.

The problem you have is your posting history is here for all to see. Throwing out memes and insults is not a debate. That’s just a non-admission from you that you know  you’ve lost the argument.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

You're the poster-boy of Conservatism!  Hip-Hooray!
THAT, and $2 gets you a 16oz coffee at the 7-11.

Name a Conservative who would have vetoed a damned thing...in REAL TIME!

Picking a name out your behind won't do!  You can't.  Because it's tantamount to 'suicide' politically.


How would you know if it's never tried? LOL! Of course it's tried. The TEA Party movement was about small government EXACTLY. The biggest most successful overturning in history was about small government and stopping spending. And the Congressional Freedom Caucus grew from that. And DeSantis grew from that.

I won’t argue with you on this.  I didn’t like the shutdowns and all the checks being sent out and I knew it would lead to inflation but I wasn’t president and running for reelection at the time.  I tend to be more merciful on Donald Trump when it comes to Covid as he was very new in politics and there were very few who shined during the pandemic. Kristi Noem was probably one of the best. But she was an anomaly.

But COVID is over.  It’s not just his spending record before and during Covid. It’s also the fact that he is promising to be even worse should he be reelected.

@LMAO

 :beer:

My feeling regarding his remarks on "Freedom Cities"...it merely an off-the-cuff response to the reporting by the media that the Democrats were going to make "Green Cities"...which to us as Conservatives would be living under a repressive government.

He said they'd be cities (his Freedom Cities) where you could buy a gas stove (They just 'outlawed' them in New York State), and be able to purchase a gasoline powered automobile and fuel to run it...for less than $3 @ gallon!    happy77

I was all FOR him as he started on it. But he lost his nerve and folded like a 2 dollar lawn chair. And everything that comes after that is on him.

And that is no small thing. Allowing antivirals to be outlawed when he knew better from experience is unconscionable. Egregious.

If China were to overrun Hawaii and occupy/control all of Alaska, what would the Biden/Obama Administration do?

Dunno about Hawaii, but Alaska foremost, and the Northwest (both the US and Canada) would have plenty to say about it. Come and take it.

Hopefully, if there is another pandemic, there’s more pushback.  A lot of this Covid stuff is Monday morning quarterbacking. I just hope that society learned a good lesson, and if they try something like this again, we do what the Chinese people did when their government tried to lock them down again.

I thought it was very unfair when the news networks were tallying the death toll in 2020 from Covid and pinning it all on Donald Trump. Yet when more died from Covid under Biden, Biden somehow mysteriously escaped any blame.

It became obvious early on that Covid was being used politically. The first indication of that came when every Trump rally was a super spreader, but any Black Lives Matter riots  were more important than Covid lockdowns. A virus does not have any political affiliation.

  I tend to be more merciful on Donald Trump when it comes to Covid as he was very new in politics....

He was more than 3 years into being president. That's not like Bush getting hit with 9/11 after 8 months in, that's three full years of experience in governing as President, firing and replacing cabinet members and advisors, etc.. 

I don't think his political experience had anything to do with why he handled that crisis the way he didn't.. You could have put somebody like Steve Forbes in there, who had no political experience either, and he would have handled it completely differently.

The issue was not Donald Trump's lack of political experience. The issue was Donald Trump did not and does not possess consistent any political principles regarding the size and scope of government. He simply doesn't care about that issue at all. So, when the crisis occurred, he happily defaulted to the most expedient route because the size and scope of government was and is a non-issue for him.   If it would have happened in the last year of an 8-year presidency, he'd have done the exact same thing.

I would argue the reason there were so few was precisely because of Donald Trump delegating that authority to bureaucrats. That meant that any politician who oppose those measures was swimming uphill against the federal government. Absent the federal government taking those positions, I think a lot more governors would have done what people like Noem and DeSantis did.

Regardless of side... The bare fact that I had to illegally suck horse paste is a sure cause against all of them. And the millions which were denied proper care through the use of antivirals AND DIED is an ironclad reason to deny ALL of them access to levers of power.
