Utopia means "no such place". The socialist utopia is a pipedream that can never exist.
What actually does exist:

180,000 dead and counting of Covid in the US under the Trumpublicans and still no national testing plan. It did not have to be this bad.

Re: Trump's accomplishments?

Trump finalized the creation of Space Force as our 6th Military branch. A military force with no enemy to fight. Violent crime has fallen every year he’s been in office after rising during the 2 years before he was elected. Not that Trump's policies have had anything to do with it. His first year i...

Re: Kamala Harris Is Biden’s VP Pick

I don't know how much you follow these threads but Octavious pretty much always gives a pass to Trump whatever he says or does so questioning his sudden "racism and sexism" outrage when he hasn't cared in the past is absolutely 100% valid. You have at least recognized that Trump is not the best (ap...

Re: Kamala Harris Is Biden’s VP Pick

The "not giving a rats" thing was me though. Given he hadn't mentioned the elephant in the room on sexism/racism, I thought perhaps he was messing with me and I wanted him to clarify. If anyone thought I was casting aspersions though, that was not my intention. I believe everyone should be free to ...

Re: Americans - on November 3rd we flush the turd!

I like Micha's activism, the example above with the email addresses for the six members of the USPS Board of Governors is perfect imo. Sensible use of information to encourage all citizens to lobby for a well funded, well run election. Peaceful, effective activism. That is what former generations f...

Re: Kamala Harris Is Biden’s VP Pick

I love your passion Michael but the comment that Matticus might not give a rat's about Trumptoad's mysoginy and racism is, in my opinion, going too far, getting personal. I'm certainly no Saint in that regard, but I'd encourage reasonable restraint in exercising your advocacy for your cause. Just s...

Re: Kamala Harris Is Biden’s VP Pick

What fake outrage nonsense. So it would have been better to have two candidates over 70? Where were you for the years of birther crap that Obama went through because he wasn't white (pushed by Trump himself)? Look at what they are doing to Kamala already. It would have been better, light years bett...
