Many people are like Donald Trump: They don't know when to "Shut the F**k Up..

Someone who knows when to shut up, can be "stupid", but not.... "that stupid"

Now, I know there are many other considerations of stupidity...but that is one of the best. It does take
a while to know when to ..."Shut the F**k Up, but most of us are willing to take the time to learn that.
..This is not hard to learn, but it takes time and effort.. It really does show when someone has not learned
this. It is not complicated, but, it really shows...

Imagine ..Someone tells the truth, & other Republicans rally around him against Trump lies..

....And that Trump lie, is so awful, that the lie could destroy him.
Why?..Everyone knows that what he says about the election is a total lie.

.............................. And the fellow is named .."Round"


...........Now, I can't make this up.. ....Can ?...Did I? Is this true or... is Is it some outer space show?..

Republican senator just admitted the 2020 election wasn't rigged.- CNN Politics: by Chris Cizzilla

https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/10/politics/mike-rounds-2020-election-big-lie/index.html

CNN) On Sunday, South Dakota Republican Sen. Mike Rounds was asked a blunt question by ABC's George Stephanopoulos: "What do you say to all those Republicans, all those veterans who believe the election was stolen, who have bought the falsehoods coming from former President Trump?"

Here's how Rounds responded (bolding is mine):
"We looked -- as a part of our due diligence, we looked at over 60 different accusations made in multiple states.
"While there were some irregularities, there were none of the irregularities which would have risen to the point where they would have changed the vote outcome in a single state.

"The election was fair, as fair as we have seen. We simply did not win the election, as Republicans, for the presidency. And moving forward -- and that's the way we want to look at this -- moving forward, we have to refocus once again on what it's going to take to win the presidency.

"And if we simply look back and tell our people don't vote because there's cheating going on, then we're going to put ourselves in a huge disadvantage. So, moving forward, let's focus on what it takes to win those elections. We can do that. But we have to let people know that they can -- they can believe and they can have confidence that those elections are fair."

(same story as the one on the front page of Democratic Underground.."rare creature spotted in wild"

I've been told,"You cannot yell fire in a crowded movie theater" Against the law. Did Trump do

that a year ago on January the 6th?...If he did, then what he did was illegal, if the comparison matches the
fire in movie theater idea. That will be up to a jury, but does anyone have thoughts on this? I think Trump
purposely started a riot for his own good. For himself, and I also think he enjoyed watching it on TV.

It is quite simple indeed: A tornado is approaching your house. Do you stand outside to take a

look and feel the wonderful tornado air, or do you hide in the basement and try to avoid being killed.
Or hide somewhere that is very safe in the house.

...Take the vaccine? Or take Covid Disease. The choice is the same. If it is difficult to decide this one, Then take the
tornado and breath the fresh air..But the winds of a tornado are really rough. Your choice.

....................JUST LIKE THE VACCINE ..............................................

yES, this is a really ....TOUGH ONE ...FOR SOME PEOPLE...BUT NOT ME...

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know...... ..... And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
