you have plenty of people to bash all that is massachusetts here, yet they remain......tell them to leave

Texas 'freedom':

Anyone that doesn’t like where they are at should leave. Immediately. Don’t like the state you’re in because they’re too far left or too far right? Leave. Don’t like the country because they do things better over in [insert country name here]? Go move there. Start the citizenship process today. There are thousands of migrants at the Mexican border as we speak who are willing to work their fingers to the bone and learn everything they can about American culture in order to make a better life for their families. If another country does things better for you, go there. I’ll take 100 of them over one person who doesn’t want to be here.

And this is true for both parties. Particularly during a change in power. Back before I deleted Facebook, I used to hop in the comment section end debate people who badmouthed the way things are in the U.S. Those who advocated for democratic socialism, those who were anti-vax/mask/etc. When I asked why they wouldn’t move to the countries they were citing if they were so much better, I usually got these three reasons:

1) “I can’t afford to go through the naturalization process and/or move there.” This is essentially just an admission that you’re broke and can’t hack it in a Capitalist system. Broke people always blame everything around them but the problem. But if you chip away enough, there is always some point in time where they made the wrong decision in their lives and it cost them financially. A fork in the road if you will. They dropped out of high school, they dropped out of college, they took on a home loan that they couldn’t afford, etc. The only exceptions are people who are mentally handicapped. The rest took the wrong path. Otherwise, if you have the money for it, you have no excuse. Get the **** outta here. Get started on the immigration process immediately. You leaving clears room for the family sweating in a tent in the desert heat who wants to actually be here. They’ll contribute. They don’t go to Canada or anywhere else. They come here. And they work hard. I’ll take ‘em.

2) “I have a family.” Horseshit. If you have a family, and you truly believe that life would be better elsewhere, that’s all the more reason to go there and set up shop for the rest of your life. Go to your democratic socialist haven or your far right piece of paradise. It’s better there, remember? Why wouldn’t you want your family to be in a better country and, therefore, a better situation?

or 3) I would get non-answers and, eventually, after chipping away at those non-answers, we could finally come to the determination that they just have it better here. These people are just complainers in general. I believe Rick Pitino called people like that, “the fellowship of the miserable.” Nothing you can do about them short of a genocide.

I have not found any other reason for someone to think it’s better somewhere else and yet they’re still here. If someone wants to offer up a reason, I’m all ears. I’m always willing to learn. In that vein, I actually respect someone like Clooney even though I rarely agree with him, politically. He didn’t like it here and decided to spend most of his time in Italy. Good for him. Whoopi Goldberg, on the other hand? I thought she was leaving in 2016 and yet she’s still here. Why? She has the dough to go anywhere she wants in the world. Why be in a country that disgusts you?

no.........what's f*cked is how big of a deal people make out of putting a damned mask on......you know, the party line that decided to politicize masks just like they politicize everything......just look at the politicization of the CA power grid during wildfires and then the change of tone for the Texas power grid last month......the most obvious thing today is the hypocrisy of the right....say what you want about the left and much of it is true, but nothing comes close to the hypocrisy of the right......I know it, you know it.....everyone knows it

I'm on 10 years now of being out of the party of dogsh*t.....I was right about them in every aspect
I have a hard time getting worked up about decisions people make that have zero effect on me. Gay people getting married had zero effect on my life. Let them be happy. People wearing or not wearing masks has zero effect on what I’m doing. In the end, you have to take care of yourself first and let everyone else worry about themselves. I’m a registered independent. Always have been. Voted for both parties at one point in my life and also voted for third party. They’re both brutally awful. The left keeps moving further left (as is evidenced by admitted socialists getting elected to Congress) and the right embraces the Tea Party and the fringe lunatics. But they’re both equally hypocritical. Let’s not pretend like the left isn’t just as bad as the right. Case in point about the left...

back to the mask........it's obviously different if you take the time to consider that you're wearing the mask for others much more than for yourself.....been that way since moment 1. At least that's the science of it. The argument against it is only political unless the mask prevents you from breathing.

at this moment, the right is much more hypocritical......you show your own bias by refuting that forget fringe BS because I can easily find way more ridiculous crap coming from the right (let me know if you want me to provide) .... mainstream right like Ted Cruz is pushing hypocrisy NOBODY is reproducing from the left. McConnell is dancing from one foot to the other.

Cuomo should be sh*tcanned.......Kavanaugh will likely be more centrist than anyone on both sides ever imagined....but that's a very small dataset

How about you stay inside for others? You can sit in your house with your mask on. And everyone else can live their lives without a freaking mask on their face

Yeah but if you’re wearing your mask, then you’re protected. The only people he or she will impact will theoretically be other anti-maskers. By the way, are that many people not wearing masks. I mean, I live in Florida and the vast, VAST majority of people wherever I go in public, are wearing masks. Even though there is no mandate.

Be my guest.

Cuomo should probably be ****canned over the nursing home deaths. He deserves to defend himself over the sexual harassment allegations, though, just like anyone else who has ever been accused. Admittedly, though, it’s not looking good.

And what about all the front line workers? What about people who don't have a choice but to venture out to get food and supplies?

Just wear a mask for a while, Is it that hard?

there are plenty of people who have common sense........the mandate is necessary for those who are too stupid or too much of a jerk

By the way, for anyone not in the eligible age group, call Walmart and ask to be put on the waitlist if they have one in your area. A lot of people don’t show up for their appointments and the pharmacists get tired of calling people. I’m on one for Saturday and will most likely be getting my first shot unless everyone shows up for their appointment.

I’m 34. No shot for me yet unless I take advantage of inefficiencies within the system.

I'm not 65, and I only have 1 medical issue (immuno-compromized)....technically, I should not have been getting my shot

no fun talking about stocks these days

the good thing about these fast and hard shakeouts is that they return pretty quick............I hope
Hope so too, but the correction is coming hard and fast. Don’t listen to the bulls on Fox Business/CNBC, etc. Since the election, the only stuff I’m holding is small cap, long-term, and some ETFs to hedge against this volatility. Just playing the waiting game otherwise.

Still got ****ed today, though. I’d imagine everyone but the hedge funds did. I looked at my watch lists at one point and everything was red. Literally all of it. Time to pivot the retirement portfolios toward bonds and mutual funds if you haven’t already done so.
