Please let me know when Taiwan and Ukraine became part of the USA.
Ukraine became part of US in 2014.
Don't know about Taiwan.
How did that happen? Ukraine isn't exactly about to become the US's 51st state.
It would be an excellent way to piss off Puerto Rico and Guam though.
Not to mention Russia.
Oh, wait - nothing would change because they think it already happened, years ago.

Gabard is not Christian, she's Hindu. She belongs to a Hindu cult from Hawaii, as her parents did. Her husband is a member too. It's socially conservative, homophobic, Islamophobic, and is led by an abusive leader. She used to very actively campaign against gay rights in Hawaii.

Republicans often insist that Dems are "out of touch" with white voters, religious voters, and rural voters. But they're actually not. Dems are only "out of touch" with gullible deluded fools who live in fantasy worlds disconnected from reality. YES! Dems are disconnected from the reality of white oppression that white racists think they live in. YES! Dems are disconnected from the reality of end times magical sky daddies that fundamentalist religious dominionists think they are living in. YES! Dems are disconnected from the reality of "rugged independence" and "Nobody helped me" that many rural voters think they are living in.

Racists, religious dominionists, and "rugged independents" are actually complimenting Dems when they call them "out of touch" because Dems are sitting pretty basking in the light of reason, science, and reality.

That Republicans re-cast these loony toon characters as "white voters," "religious voters," and "rural voters" is just part of the grift. The fact that people out there believe all this bullshit doesn't make it legitimate and refusing to cater to it doesn't make a person "out of touch."

The Democrats are the party of mentally ill sex perversion and abortion to the time of birth. Not to mention the party of Socialism, the Party of Homelessness. The Party of High Taxes. The Lunacy Party of the "Green New Deal", the Party of energy dependence. The Party that allows and accepts literally millions of illiterate foreign invaders to come into America unchecked, for the sole reason to vote for their party. The Party of crime, violence, dependence and drugs. The Party that closes businesses, schools, slap face diapers on us and causes hysteria over a cold virus. And yes, a party that kisses the feet (and ass) of the Corporations and Zionists to bomb innocents wordwidewhile indoctrinating the young minds of our troops with more sex perversion, and anti-white racism

So please, enough with the Democratic, fake, pretentious intellectualism of "we know better than you."

Ever seen the film Idiocracy? If you havent, please do, because this is what the Democratic Party wants as their Utopia.

Well, that spittle-flecked screed is certainly unhinged.

Are you genuinely of the opinion that it even vaguely resembles the actual Democratic Party? The one in the USA?

The only takeaway I get from this exchange is that an assertion of "we know better than you" by anyone who doesn't subscribe to this batshit insane, twisted and distorted view of the rather staid, tedious and inoffensive US Democratic Party, is almost inevitably going to be correct, simply because it would be difficult not to know better than someone foolish enough to believe such tripe.

Mentally ill sex perversion? Seems like just about every sex pervert I hear about is Republican.

Abortion until birth? Because your side keeps trying to ratchet it down. Better to eliminate the limit entirely--practice shows that there wasn't a problem, the only third trimester abortions were for medical reasons, almost always fetal defects as if the threat is to the woman they would normally deliver at that point.

Party of Socialism? The Republicans label many things socialism that are not.

Party of homelessness? That's the Republicans.

Party of high taxes? Better than the party of high borrowing.

Party of the Green New Deal? Nope, that's a few nuts on the left.

Party of energy dependence? No, disliking coal isn't calling for energy dependence.

Party of foreign invaders? Do you not realize illegals aren't allowed to vote?

Party of crime? More crime in Republican areas.

Party of violence? Even more a Republican thing.

Party of dependence? The Republicans want that for the fat cats.

Party of drugs? You're the ones aggravating the drug war. That's far more harmful than the drugs.

Party of [pandemic measures]? Well, the Republicans are the party of death. Or don't you care that it's killed twice as many Republicans as Democrats?
Over a cold virus? The common cold isn't on the radar as a cause of death. Covid is still #3.

Party of war? That's normally Republicans. However, in this case it's a war between freedom and oppression, it's not exactly surprising that the Republicans have chosen the side of oppression.

Who presses for thirty six different gender identities and children getting sex change operations? The Democrats. The "woke" hates the traditional family and wants to destroy it. Or them having children as young as the First Grade learn about alternative sexual choices. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida passed a bill into law requiring that the subject of sex not be taught until the fourth grade. A very reasonable law. The "woke" went crazy like they always do and kept yapping it was a "Dont Say Gay" bill. Uh, nope, the bill/law says nothing about gays, it says that sexuality shouldnt be talked about to young grade school children (because they are not ready for it) So, it sort of begs the question of why the "woke" and people of non normal sexuality so want, so want to teach 6 year olds about sex.

The Democrats are the party of Abortion and baby death. The Republican states have mostly said no to this. Because it is wrong to murder children and all that. Women want reproductive rights? Use birth control. I would reluctantly say that a woman who was raped or a young child who was raped by a family member should be exempt, but I think of the life of the person inside the mother. There are exceptions, but exceptions should not make the rule.

High taxes. California, New York, New Jersey and Illinois has the highest tax rates in the nation, and many people are fleeing. Which party runs those states? Illinois is going to be no cash bail for people arrested for violent crimes starting next year, which will be fun since Chicago is a war zone (I will say for a Democrat, the late mayor Richard Daley in the 1960's kept a lid on things and ran a safe city, because he had baton swinging, no bullshit cops.) Many long term Democratic ran large cities are rife with violent crime and theft, plus the Democrats are anti-police with the real loony ones wanting to "defund the police", but with what? Social workers? This whackadoodle Democratic idea.

California under Ronald Reagan was a paradise in the 1970's (except for Hollywood) and people flocked there. Now they are running like hell. New York City was safe and prosperous under Rudolf Guiliani, now the city is again, crime ridden, empty storefronts and those who can, flee, and guess to where, Republican ran states.

Please watch a Youtube video "Seattle is Dying". It was made by one of the TV news stations in Seattle. That once beautiful city is now homeless camps (and again, Democrats want to keep people dependent), the wanton, ridiculous crime and the filth. With few police because the local government are hostile to police, which emboldens the criminals. Yet the Democrats keep electing the same people over and over again while making an otherwise good salary but not being able to afford a house because of the taxes, and even for the people who can, to have to deal with the drugged out, alcoholic, mostly criminal homeless people outside their doors. Good Democratic voters, so they stay.

The Democrats are pro social welfare state and have kept generations of poor people, especially people of color on welfare and food stamp dependence for votes. Again, in the inner crime ridden Democrat ran cities, the educational system is falling apart at the seams, with kids getting high school diplomas when they cant read or count to twenty using their fingers and toes. Democratic fat cats and teacher unions keep it this way and want the students dumb and dependent so they vote Democratic the rest of their lives.

Democratic run cities with no cops (cops bad!) are filled with open air drug markets. San Francisco being the worst but many cities. A lot of talk is about Fentanyl. Where does Fentalyl come from? Yes, the Southern Border that the Democratic President swung wide open from his first day in office. Because the Democrats again....want millions of people to be dependent on them and vote for them. Interestingly and not that reported, Cubans who make it to Florida and arrested by ICE are sent back. The reason is that Cubans by and large will vote Republican because they have seen what Socialism has done to a once prosperous Cuba. Cubans vote Republican. DeSantis won Dade County where most of the Cubans live.

Under Joe Biden, a Democratic President who is a crook and a moron, inflation has galloped to a forty year high. President Moron decided to shut down the Keystone Pipeline and his administration is hostile to fossil fuels, but by doing so is being forced to tap into the strategic reserve and is begging foreign nations like Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and others to buy fuel. Ridiculous. The so called "Green New Deal" is not workable and even electric cars ironically require coal and fuel based generators to produce the electricity. Duh. Or how much in the way of minerals are going to have to be mined from the ground causing pollution on a massive scale so you can have your electric car that the middle class cannot afford in the first place. Wind and solar wont work, not enough energy. Nuclear Power is an excellent option, but again, the left howls against it.

Regarding "Covid", the Democratic held areas closed down businesses of all types, which ruined lives of once prosperous people (because the Democrats hate prosperity because prosperous people dont need them) and absolutely disrupted the economy over a COLD VIRUS. Something that even if it exists and not a big lie, has a well over a 99.9995% percent recovery rate. The Billionaires and the Government ((s) of the World) have been trying to figure out how to control the population, and this fake cold virus has been their gift from Heaven. Many people have died, but how many from this virus and are we sure this is what they really died from, or is this a game of the government to control the population? Having to wear that disgusting, nasty, stupid, worthless face diaper because of hysteria really angers me. If there is a virus and even if the face diaper even works (it doesnt) the diaper keeps you safe from the free, common sense people who refuse it, not the common sense people who refuse it, spreading the disease. Again, this is the narrative, the people who believe in freedom are killers. This is from the nut Democratic Party who believes in abortion up to nine months, sex change for children and Drag Queen story hour for preschoolers.

Under Socialism of the Democratic Party, there is a few rich and powerful people on top of the scale and the rest of us living like shit. Much like in Democratic cities in America! Watch the short film "Animal Farm" and learn something.

You appear to be both lividly angry, and completely unaware that facts exist, much less what they are.

That's not a good combination, and could cause real problems for you in the future.

Have you sought professional psychiatric assistance? It would probably be wise for you to do so.

No, I just tell the truth, and you do not like it and are content in living in your own delusions and fantasies. There is nothing worse than being pretentiously wrong. I am livid but for the right reasons, the "woke" are destroying and perverting the country.

Democratic run cities with no cops (cops bad!) are filled with open air drug markets. San Francisco being the worst but many cities. A lot of talk is about Fentanyl. Where does Fentalyl come from? Yes, the Southern Border that the Democratic President swung wide open from his first day in office. Because the Democrats again....want millions of people to be dependent on them and vote for them. Interestingly and not that reported, Cubans who make it to Florida and arrested by ICE are sent back. The reason is that Cubans by and large will vote Republican because they have seen what Socialism has done to a once prosperous Cuba. Cubans vote Republican. DeSantis won Dade County where most of the Cubans live.

Under Joe Biden, a Democratic President who is a crook and a moron, inflation has galloped to a forty year high. President Moron decided to shut down the Keystone Pipeline and his administration is hostile to fossil fuels, but by doing so is being forced to tap into the strategic reserve and is begging foreign nations like Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and others to buy fuel. Ridiculous. The so called "Green New Deal" is not workable and even electric cars ironically require coal and fuel based generators to produce the electricity. Duh. Or how much in the way of minerals are going to have to be mined from the ground causing pollution on a massive scale so you can have your electric car that the middle class cannot afford in the first place. Wind and solar wont work, not enough energy. Nuclear Power is an excellent option, but again, the left howls against it.

Regarding "Covid", the Democratic held areas closed down businesses of all types, which ruined lives of once prosperous people (because the Democrats hate prosperity because prosperous people dont need them) and absolutely disrupted the economy over a COLD VIRUS. Something that even if it exists and not a big lie, has a well over a 99.9995% percent recovery rate. The Billionaires and the Government ((s) of the World) have been trying to figure out how to control the population, and this fake cold virus has been their gift from Heaven. Many people have died, but how many from this virus and are we sure this is what they really died from, or is this a game of the government to control the population? Having to wear that disgusting, nasty, stupid, worthless face diaper because of hysteria really angers me. If there is a virus and even if the face diaper even works (it doesnt) the diaper keeps you safe from the free, common sense people who refuse it, not the common sense people who refuse it, spreading the disease. Again, this is the narrative, the people who believe in freedom are killers. This is from the nut Democratic Party who believes in abortion up to nine months, sex change for children and Drag Queen story hour for preschoolers.

Under Socialism of the Democratic Party, there is a few rich and powerful people on top of the scale and the rest of us living like shit. Much like in Democratic cities in America! Watch the short film "Animal Farm" and learn something.
You appear to be both lividly angry, and completely unaware that facts exist, much less what they are.

That's not a good combination, and could cause real problems for you in the future.

Have you sought professional psychiatric assistance? It would probably be wise for you to do so.
No, I just tell the truth, and you do not like it and are content in living in your own delusions and fantasies. There is nothing worse than being pretentiously wrong. I am livid but for the right reasons, the "woke" are destroying and perverting the country.
You wouldn't know the truth if it bit you on the arse, and you don't even appear to be aware that there is more than one country.

You are livid because you're being told to be livid by a well funded and widely effective outrage machine.

And your country is fucked, largely because so many of its citizens are as misinformed as you are.

My country will be just fine; Fortunately it's a very long way from your third world shit-hole with delusions of adequacy.

The Democrats are the party of mentally ill sex perversion and abortion to the time of birth. Not to mention the party of Socialism, the Party of Homelessness. The Party of High Taxes. The Lunacy Party of the "Green New Deal", the Party of energy dependence. The Party that allows and accepts literally millions of illiterate foreign invaders to come into America unchecked, for the sole reason to vote for their party. The Party of crime, violence, dependence and drugs. The Party that closes businesses, schools, slap face diapers on us and causes hysteria over a cold virus. And yes, a party that kisses the feet (and ass) of the Corporations and Zionists to bomb innocents wordwidewhile indoctrinating the young minds of our troops with more sex perversion, and anti-white racism
Is this a parody?

I think it’s just an assortment of RW lies - a menu, if you will, from which mindless delusional consumers of conspiracy theories can assemble their “position”. And an impressive assortment it is!

And corporate profits are at a 70 year high. Not one Republican showed up for hearings on a windfall profit tax and none voted for it.

BTW, under Biden, inflation is lower than all other modern countries.

Who presses for thirty six different gender identities and children getting sex change operations? The Democrats. The "woke" hates the traditional family and wants to destroy it. Or them having children as young as the First Grade learn about alternative sexual choices. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida passed a bill into law requiring that the subject of sex not be taught until the fourth grade. A very reasonable law. The "woke" went crazy like they always do and kept yapping it was a "Dont Say Gay" bill. Uh, nope, the bill/law says nothing about gays, it says that sexuality shouldnt be talked about to young grade school children (because they are not ready for it) So, it sort of begs the question of why the "woke" and people of non normal sexuality so want, so want to teach 6 year olds about sex.

36 gender identities? This is the first I've even heard this claim.

And note that you're referring to "traditional" family--nobody's seeking to destroy it, merely expand what counts as "family".

And you really misunderstand what is and isn't being taught. It's not about "sex", but about relationships. First graders won't understand sexual choices, but they can see that Timmy has two male parents and Tommy has two female parents. It's not about what those parents do in the bedroom, but simply that that's how the world is. If school makes that normal it's much harder for the hate mongers to teach their kids to hate them.

And it most certainly is a "Don't say gay" bill--look at what's actually getting challenged. Anything other than white, heterosexual couples being even mentioned in any school material.

The Democrats are the party of Abortion and baby death. The Republican states have mostly said no to this. Because it is wrong to murder children and all that. Women want reproductive rights? Use birth control. I would reluctantly say that a woman who was raped or a young child who was raped by a family member should be exempt, but I think of the life of the person inside the mother. There are exceptions, but exceptions should not make the rule.

Reality check:

1) Looking at the world the abortion rate is higher in places where it's illegal than places where it's legal.

2) Accepting it in the case of rape/incest says it's about punishing the woman, not about the fetus. If the fetus really is a person then abortion is murder and should only be permitted in self defense. If it's not a person then where is the state justification for banning it?

3) Use birth control does no good when it's a case of a pregnancy gone wrong. I haven't heard of any deaths provably because the QOP chose to sacrifice the woman on the altar of punishment but there have been cases in other developed countries and it's just a matter of time before it happens here.

4) Check the medical data--there's no perfect method of birth control. Does that mean that those of us who do not want kids must never have sex?

High taxes. California, New York, New Jersey and Illinois has the highest tax rates in the nation, and many people are fleeing. Which party runs those states? Illinois is going to be no cash bail for people arrested for violent crimes starting next year, which will be fun since Chicago is a war zone (I will say for a Democrat, the late mayor Richard Daley in the 1960's kept a lid on things and ran a safe city, because he had baton swinging, no bullshit cops.) Many long term Democratic ran large cities are rife with violent crime and theft, plus the Democrats are anti-police with the real loony ones wanting to "defund the police", but with what? Social workers? This whackadoodle Democratic idea.

California is growing. It lost a house seat because it wasn't growing as fast as some places--and that's more a matter of housing costs.

As for Democrat cities being rife with crime--in general the larger the city the more crime and in general the larger the city the more likely it is Democrat. However, the cesspits are mostly Republican.

Under Joe Biden, a Democratic President who is a crook and a moron, inflation has galloped to a forty year high. President Moron decided to shut down the Keystone Pipeline and his administration is hostile to fossil fuels, but by doing so is being forced to tap into the strategic reserve and is begging foreign nations like Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and others to buy fuel. Ridiculous. The so called "Green New Deal" is not workable and even electric cars ironically require coal and fuel based generators to produce the electricity. Duh. Or how much in the way of minerals are going to have to be mined from the ground causing pollution on a massive scale so you can have your electric car that the middle class cannot afford in the first place. Wind and solar wont work, not enough energy. Nuclear Power is an excellent option, but again, the left howls against it.

Once again, QOP talking points with little connection to reality. We had supply chain shocks, inflation is basically inevitable. Inflation is a worldwide thing, not just the US, so how did Biden cause it in places he's not in charge??

Wind and solar reduce oil/gas use but are not overall solutions as you still need the powerplants even if they're not turned on as much.

Regarding "Covid", the Democratic held areas closed down businesses of all types, which ruined lives of once prosperous people (because the Democrats hate prosperity because prosperous people dont need them) and absolutely disrupted the economy over a COLD VIRUS. Something that even if it exists and not a big lie, has a well over a 99.9995% percent recovery rate. The Billionaires and the Government ((s) of the World) have been trying to figure out how to control the population, and this fake cold virus has been their gift from Heaven.

Under Socialism of the Democratic Party, there is a few rich and powerful people on top of the scale and the rest of us living like shit. Much like in Democratic cities in America! Watch the short film "Animal Farm" and learn something.

Let's try some numbers. You say a 99.9995% recovery rate. That means 1 in 200,000 die. We have 1.09M dead in the US, not counting reinfections that means we have had 218 billion cases of Covid. The US population is 331.9 million, that means on average a person has had 657 Covid infections, that's approaching one a day. Have you really been that sick?!

And respirators do work.

You talk about the Billionaires controlling the population--and you fail to see it happening to you. They've been feeding you crap and you lap it up as it kills you--Covid has been killing Republicans at twice the rate it kills Democrats. (Some of this is demographic, but certainly not all of it.)

You pretend that the deaths aren't Covid--but then you're left with having no explanation for what they really died of. There are more excess deaths than deaths attributed to Covid--we are almost certainly actually undercounting. (Easy enough--plenty of people aren't sick enough to need the hospital but then keel over because they threw a clot into someplace quickly lethal.)

And you didn't even respond to most of my points.

Nice job responding point by point. It’s a dirtry job but someone had to do it, I guess. Not that it’ll make the slightest difference. The stuff you’re responding to sounds like it was cribbed from The Great Big Book of Right-Wing Nut Job Apologetics, and there’s no arguing with people who are True Believers in that particular bible.

It would take hours to slog through all the nonsense recently posted by senor boogie woogie and refute it — all of it is demonstrably false — and who has time for that? What would even be the point?

Still, I wanted to address this:

New York City was safe and prosperous under Rudolf Guiliani, now the city is again, crime ridden, empty storefronts and those who can, flee, and guess to where, Republican ran states.

I know that this is stone-cold bullshit, because I live in New York City and have done so for nearly three decades.

In all that time, I have never once been the victim of a crime. Never once. Any crime. And I am quite active and have been all over the city, all five boroughs. I’m a daily rider of the so-called dangerous subways, and have been for nearly thirty years. And I’ve never had a problem on them. Never.

New York City is the safest big city in the United States, according to the FBI, as of this year.

Yes, as the article notes, crime in the city has been rising recently, but it’s still far below historical levels. The reason for the rise is no doubt related to social and economic dislocations caused by the Covid pandemic — which, contrary to our curmudgeonly interlocutor’s claim, was and is far more serious than the common cold. But I’m not addressing that topic now.

Crime on the rise? Yes, and not just in NYC. When did the rise start? Under Donald Trump, in 2020. See here.

Note that the latter linked article also ranks the safest cities in the U.S. with populations over 500,000. New York City ranks third.

Yes, there are certain areas of the city, mostly economically disadvantaged, that have higher crime rates than the better-off parts of the city. What else is new? It’s really easy for small towns without the inevitable socioeconomic problems found in large population clusters to have low crime rates, but one wonders how much lower the rates are per capita. In any case, we’re all familiar with the pathologies that plague rural, small-town, Donald Trump America: Lack of jobs, substandard education, poor health care, opioid addictions, declining populations as the young flee these hell holes, and so on. It’s a fact that most federal tax dollars flow back not to the blue states but to the red states.

People are fleeing NYC for Republican-run cities and states? Wrong again.

Lots of people DO leave the city (though more move in or are replaced by births) but that’s mostly because of the high cost of living.

Vacant store fronts in NYC? Bullshit. I live here. I do remember plenty of vacant storefronts during the Covid shutdown. They aren’t vacant anymore. The city is safe and teeming, thriving, pulsating with energy, and it’s polyglot: filled with immigrants of every stripe who contribute immeasurably to the city’s prosperity.

Now, again, that isn’t true for all parts of the city. But it is true for most of it.

When you get your information from The Big Book of Right-Wing Nut-Job Apologetics, you tend to have, shall we say, a distorted view of reality.

Jason my friend, I might be able to help you a little here! You might be a little behind the news. Biden pulled our troops from Afghanistan. No more US troops there. Then we are actually helping encourage self-defense. We're helping Taiwan to encourage China to not attack. Then we're arming and helping Ukraine to fight off Russian invaders that are killing Ukrainians and stealing their stuff. We're trying to encourage invaders to not invade and kill people. Really good stuff!
Please let me know when Taiwan and Ukraine became part of the USA.

Nobody's invaded the USA in a really long time.
Even Pearl Harbor wasn't in a U.S. state. Does that make our participating in WWII "warmongering"?
Seriously, does your response in that post make any sense?

I can no longer remain in today's Democratic Party that's under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers. Who are driven by cowardly wokeness who divide us by racializing every issue and stoking anti-white racism, who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution, who are hostile to people of faith and spirituality, who demonize the police but protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans who believe in open borders, who weaponize the national security state to go after their political opponents and above all, who are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.
This is someone who was once involved in the Democratic Party's leadership. She now sounds like some Protocols of the Elders of the Democratic Party.

The Democrats are the party of mentally ill sex perversion and abortion to the time of birth. Not to mention the party of Socialism, the Party of Homelessness. The Party of High Taxes. The Lunacy Party of the "Green New Deal", the Party of energy dependence. The Party that allows and accepts literally millions of illiterate foreign invaders to come into America unchecked, for the sole reason to vote for their party. The Party of crime, violence, dependence and drugs. The Party that closes businesses, schools, slap face diapers on us and causes hysteria over a cold virus. And yes, a party that kisses the feet (and ass) of the Corporations and Zionists to bomb innocents wordwidewhile indoctrinating the young minds of our troops with more sex perversion, and anti-white racism

So please, enough with the Democratic, fake, pretentious intellectualism of "we know better than you."

Ever seen the film Idiocracy? If you havent, please do, because this is what the Democratic Party wants as their Utopia.
More Protocols of the Elders of the Democratic Party.

Wiki: "For example, the Protocols includes plans to subvert the morals of the non-Jewish world, plans for Jewish bankers to control the world's economies, plans for Jewish control of the press, and – ultimately – plans for the destruction of civilization."

There were a couple of episodes of minutea. Like Germany and Japan landing some spies on American beaches.
I presume that those are the nits being picked here. I didn't care enough to ask.

In any case, we’re all familiar with the pathologies that plague rural, small-town, Donald Trump America: Lack of jobs, substandard education, poor health care, opioid addictions, declining populations as the young flee these hell holes, and so on. It’s a fact that most federal tax dollars flow back not to the blue states but to the red states.

People are fleeing NYC for Republican-run cities and states? Wrong again.

Lots of people DO leave the city (though more move in or are replaced by births) but that’s mostly because of the high cost of living.

Vacant store fronts in NYC? Bullshit. I live here. I do remember plenty of vacant storefronts during the Covid shutdown. They aren’t vacant anymore. The city is safe and teeming, thriving, pulsating with energy, and it’s polyglot: filled with immigrants of every stripe who contribute immeasurably to the city’s prosperity.

Now, again, that isn’t true for all parts of the city. But it is true for most of it.

When you get your information from The Big Book of Right-Wing Nut-Job Apologetics, you tend to have, shall we say, a distorted view of reality.
I think boogie's rants bring a good study in the generalized unfocused discontent that the right wing is exploiting. I see hatred of billionaires, support of unions, but also a general sense that something is being taken away by The Powers That Be and given to Teh Gays, Immigrants, etc... It is fairly incoherent and definitely not Libertarian but it is a window into how people feels and what feelings are being manipulated by the very billionaires that they claim to hate.

Nobody's invaded the USA in a really long time.
Even Pearl Harbor wasn't in a U.S. state. Does that make our participating in WWII "warmongering"?
Seriously, does your response in that post make any sense?

We got invaded in WWII.
Alaska wasn't a state during WWII either.

Afaik, the last invasion of the USA was in the war of 1812.
Doesn't need to be a state to be part of the US. It was US soil, albeit uninhabited.

There were a couple of episodes of minutea. Like Germany and Japan landing some spies on American beaches.
I presume that those are the nits being picked here. I didn't care enough to ask.
Tom
Not really nit-picking.

Japan invaded an uninhabited island in the Aleutian chain in WWII.

I would not count spies as an invasion as they do not attempt to control territory.

1848, Mexican War. Mexico was all over our territory right before we owned it.
Yeah, but it was part of Mexico at the time they "invaded".

Alaska wasn't a state back then though. And TomC already dismissed Hawaii on those grounds - so your nitpick contradicts the established frame of reference.

Anyone know where I could I get a list of those thirty six gender identities?

The OP in the San Francisco basic income for transgender people thread has a link to a form with tick boxes for dozens of genders. You may wish to consult that list.

It also has a write-in box, because gender identity is a thought in a person's head, and therefore there are effectively an unlimited number of genders.

Too late; You already tacitly accepted that Hawaii didn't count, by your failure to object to its explicit exclusion. You cannot now try to include Alaska.

If you're going to count non-state US possessions, you can just declare that Japanese occupation of the Philippines was 'invading the United States'.

What does invaded mean, in this context?

Sure looks like nit picking to me. "an inhabited island in the Aleutian chain"?
Back when Alaska wasn't a state?

Is that really what you mean by "invaded"?
I'm comparing it to Poland and France. Or Iraq. Then Ukraine.

Now you're using the word "invaded", as if an uninhabited Aleutian island is in any way comparable to Afghanistan?

Bullshit, it was 100% preowned US territory. USA! USA!

I didn't address the Hawaii bit because I don't recall the situation. Japan attacked Hawaii but I have no recollection of them actually invading.

Personally, I don't think that the USA has ever been invaded.

I don't think the English burned Washington DC in 1814 by chucking Molotov Cocktails from across the Canadian border.

The ones I'm aware of:

1) The British burned the White House. Hard to do that without invading.

2) The Japanese invaded an uninhabited Alaskan island.

Our claimed borders have been breached by enemy ground forces on several occasions, most frequently in connection with the many occasions of political disagreement over the exact location of our southern and northern borders with Mexico and Canada respectively. There were also countless skirmishes with the indigenous nations of this continent, though whether one considers it "invasion" to find enemy troops on land you yourself recently invaded is a matter of perspective.
