    Kind of like anybody who rails against the Dems the last 4 years is a Russian agent?

    Both things can be true... Biden won the election and Fox, CNN and all of them are terrible.

    Why is that we have corporations, big tech, Wall Street, the unions, Hollywood and everything else lined up behind the Dems.... But your so worried about the right wing?

    It makes no sense. You’re worried about the people that have no real power or control.

    Cities can get burned by lefties and you folks will still be complaining about the ones that lost and cant do much of anything.

    It is bizarre.

    These people are just going to complain on social media and theyre not going to do anything else.

    The right wing is nothing.Some talk no action. The far left has been walking all over the right for years. For whatever reason, the right is very afraid of the left.

    Well, of course that plays a big part of it.

    The point is that the Dems get the most money backing them. Biden and the Dems reek of the establishment. They have most of the money and the mouthpieces in places that hold the most influence.

    You might say "Well, what about Brietbart and Fox News?"

    Well, that's where the Late Night Talk Shows and such come into play. One of their main jobs is to delegitimize those that disagree with them. Especially if they have any link to conservative or whatever.

    I was merely giving you a comparison to your attacks of the far left whackos--that there are far right whackos as well. Didn't say anything about Russian agents, Hollywood, cities getting burned, etc. I just take issue with right and left when the word "far" precedes it. And if you think it's only one side that is a problem, I believe you're wrong.

    We can agree on one thing--that CNN, Fox and all of them are terrible.

    And, please, don't lump me in with the people who condone the rioters and scumbags who destroy cities. You are grossly misjudging my posts with your preconceived notions of anyone who doesn't align with your "we're doomed" opinion.

    Fox Doesn’t Need to Fear Trump’s Wrath

    The cable behemoth’s audience yowled after the network seemed insufficiently supportive of the president’s electoral hopes. But Fox’s hold on crackpot news—and viewers—is secure

    Well, you don't seem that worried about it.

    Instead, you worry about the media being quiet and satisfied.

    I think you worry too much. I concern myself with me and mine and their well-being.

    I think there is an overreaction to the "R" and "D" of politics.

    I'm not worried about the media being quiet. I was just sick and tired of the noise coming from the White House. A lot of it was, and will continue to be, bullshit. I just think it'll be nice to get a reprieve from the chaos for a bit. It doesn't mean I won't pay attention, it just won't be thrown in our faces as much.

    The stock market, for whatever reason, on average performs better under Democratic Administrations. Wall Street knows this, so a Biden Presidency doesn't scare the shit out of Wall Street.

    And as Mike said, they are buying access, that is what big money donations are about. If they thought Trump was going to win, they would have been giving him the money, not Biden. It really is that simple.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.
