    I saw a survey a couple days ago and IIRC even 70% of Republicans support actions to make Medicare (and Social Social Security) solvent long term.

    ?? Medicare and Medicaid are two of our "socialist" programs. I don't know if Stefanik is really that stupid or if she's just so utterly void of conscience that she's willing to tell this blatant lie to appeal to the more ignorant of her poor and aging voters. I don't know which is worse, either.

    I remember several years ago seeing a protester with a sign saying "KEEP GOVERNMENT HANDS OFF MY MEDICARE!!!"

    Kinda mindblowing.

    The contemporary equivalent is, "I don't have a problem with ACA, I just want Obamacare repealed."

    Alex Jones and (IIRC) Tucker Carlson defended themselves in court (via their lawyers) by claiming to be comedians or entertainers: their seemingly-stupid comments are no more reality-based than the comments of Bozo the Clown or a Hollywood horror film writer.

    Is this what Republican Congresscritters now are? "Comedians"? "Entertainers"?

    Not so much comedians as they are pathetic fucking jokes.

    Yes. "Newstainment" is the only thing they can honestly call their rhetoric, and that honesty had to be forced through courts but doesn't matter anyway because GQP voters don't know how truth works.

    MAGA World’s ‘Freedom Phone’ Actually Budget Chinese Phone

    MAGA Influencers are pushing a phone preloaded with apps like Parler and Rumble that appears to be a vastly more expensive version of a phone made in China.
    The pro-Trump internet went wild on Wednesday for the Freedom Phone, a $500 smartphone that comes stocked with conservative apps and promises to liberate anyone else who buys it from Silicon Valley censorship. The American flag-branded phone was immediately promoted by a wide range of right-wing figures, including former Trump adviser Roger Stone, Jan. 6 rally organizer Ali Alexander, and pundit Dinesh D’Souza.

    “I’m holding a freaking phone that is not controlled by Apple or Google,” conservative personality Candace Owens told her fans in an Instagram video. “We made the switch immediately.”

    Despite being lauded by some of the right-wing media’s leading figures, though, the Freedom Phone’s buyers could be getting less than they expect for its $500 price tag. That’s because the Freedom Phone appears to be merely a more expensive rebranding of a budget Chinese phone available elsewhere for a fraction of the Freedom Phone’s price.

    The Freedom Phone was created by Erik Finman, the self-proclaimed “youngest bitcoin millionaire” and one of Time Magazine’s “Most Influential Teens of 2014.” In a video announcing the phone, Finman said he was inspired to create the phone after the tech giants’ crackdown on both Donald Trump and conservative social media app Parler in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot.
    And the grifting continues...


    The guy doing the review is brown-skinned and talks funny so he must be an Islamic commie socialist fascist.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.
