    If you don't like the conversation, just stay out of it. Your focus on MSNBC seems to be very disconcerting to you, perhaps you should turn it off occasionally. I haven't watched it in years.

    So, what's the "reason it's turning into a dump?" Do you have the answers or is it just another excuse to be a grumpy old man prematurely?

    THE SCARE OF SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!

    I see people cowering all over the country while the largely socialized response to the pandemic has kept the top from blowing off the death toll. People are not shivering wrapped in blankets in doorways gasping out their last breath.

    You need to find a better boogie man.

    They haven't found "Antifa" yet.. Could that be because they're not an organization but instead, groups of young people who are ANTI-FASCIST? I do wonder when the hunt turns towards the "PROUD BOYS" or do they get a pass because they're white nationalists and fall into Trump's groups of "good people". I'd lay a grand on them getting a pass from Herr Trump and his lapdog AG.

    We’d solve a lot of problems with ranked choice voting.

    I am very surprised that you think that. They are very far from “anti fascist “. Proud boys are made up of different races, and don’t destroy property.

    It'll take a while to catch on, but I agree. Winner take all certainly isn't working.

    The professionals who track white supremacist groups think differently. And I've yet to see any Proud Boy who wasn't white. Not to worry though. They'll never be prosecuted for anything they do. They get a pass.. They ALWAYS get a pass...

    Splc is a joke. Barely a mention, and still find a way to soften the black Hebrew Israelites. Who stand on the corners in busy city areas and tell white people as the walk by how they are going enslave the man, rape the wife and kill the kids. Right to families as they walk by, and nobody does shit. What kind of privilege do we call that?

    The articles I posted about crime going up support what a dump will look like. Talk to someone you know in the city or outer boroughs. It's not good.

    I wasn't even giving my thoughts on socialized medicine. I was giving my thoughts on why I feel people moved away from voting for Hilary and the Democratic side. No reason to turn it into something it's not.

    Why (waaaay before the current zeitgeist) were NYPD rank and file turning their backs on DiBlasio whenever he'd show his face at a 'funeral' ?

    Speaking of "in charge" .... again, waaaaay before the current zeitgeist - a video (below) for your amusement. Now: granted, cops are all-too-often total dicks, however (using the below video as an example), put your bad-ass, ever-so-self-righteous-self in these (NYC) cop's shoes....then expound on your elevated sense of restraint...

    Posting a week old video answers nothing. Criminals doing criminal things is nothing new.

    I know the stats I was waiting for you or your tag team partner to tell us why from your distant perches.
