    Don't like the guy, but the impeachment was a farce to begin with me thinks.

    If that trial is the measure of truth and justice we do have a long long way to go.
    Now that in my book is what is really sad.
    Have a great day today

    Sure, if the Americans could do it once, and the French thought it was a good idea, as well as Russia, China, and numerous lesser players, why shouldn't the Americans do it again. I'll tell you why not, because 75% of the American 'people' thought that a sitting American President fomenting insurrection was beyond a farce, in the 1800's that action would have demanded a public execution. The days of seeing through the facade of manipulation and sophistry are long gone. Superficial plausibility is the newest and greatest tool employed to sidestep the bounds of any American institution that supports human decency. It's a world tailor-made for the psychopath. If I'd only known.

    I don't get the sense that you are an American Cats, from where do you hail?

    I knew there was a reason anything american left me feeling indifferent either way. From where I am sitting I hoped for Trump to win. But only because he didn't mingle in world politics much so that would have been one player less to worry about.
    Have a great day today

    That would make sense if it were true, unfortunately, Trump is quite a few levels below the average politician. The analogy has been made that he is more of a criminal don than anything else. One could easily compare him to Jimmy 'the chin' Gigante

    Don't know jimmy the chin. But I believe most politicians to be "honest" for a few weeks once they get elected at most. As for who is the bigger criminal. That is merely a matter of how far one is effected by them.

    You don’t think DJT is responsible for the white hog brigade on the Capital?

    Or you don’t think Congress should officially hold him accountable and attempt to “cancel” him from sitting in government?
    What is the purpose of your presence?

    To be fair, politics wasn't the main topic for this thread.
    But if you want to include it here. answer me why people like bush jr, bush sr or even obama should not be impeached and cancelled for their responsibilities in the death's they caused?

    But no let's get they guy we can't control(joke) and let's make sure he doesn't go into office anymore, because he is racist and grabs women by the pussy.

    Sigh..

    Internal versus external. I'm not a believer in nationalism because nations always tend to punish outsiders, are very forgiving if governmental actions are in accord with the nation's stated goals. What is not forgivable is when governmental actions are intended to harm the nation within itself. A simple formula actually. The truth is the right always pushes the boundaries of global peace accords and the left always tries to pull them back. Over 300 years of American history is a good lesson in point if one cares to look. All nations behave in this fashion as according to the Hegelian Dialectic of left and right.

    Junior should be impeached, and tried for war crimes. Probably Obama too, but I didn’t pay much attention as I was disheartened we lived with the Bush Iran Contra Cheney regime for 8 years and I was burnt out. Couldn’t help but pay attention to Trump cuz he flaunted it. There should be consequences for crimes.

    If it is not political, how can it REALLY be “cancel culture”? Corporations and private citizens can choose to do what they want, as long as it is not harmful to others or discrimination, which is already considered crimes.

    To be fair, I have not gotten to your video of your example—I will when I can and maybe understand a little better.

    I think we mean 2 different things when we say cancel culture.
    Your example was a good one.
    Johny depp losing his spot on the next disney movie is another.

    The cancel culture I am referring to is the one that is creeping in more and more were people are losing their livelyhood over perceived offence being taken where none was given.

    Take Jimmy swagger. Crying his eyes out because he'd gone got caught sleeping with whores. Fair enough. Now would we expect the same if he slept with a prostitute when he was 19. 30 years after the fact? That's cancel culture.

    It serves no purpose but to satisfy the need for atonement from some overly sensitive political correct woke social justice warriors.

    Due to the abundance of social media pressure I think a lot of these things grow out of proportion.
