    It was, really, outrage looking for something to be outraged over.

    What I found more disheartening was watching reasonable people turn into frothing-at-the-mouth, anger-filled, irrational ideologues/partisans during the last 4 years. At the other forum there were people who for years had been good posters, great people to discuss with. Then over the last 4 years, they deteriorated. Suddenly, any reason to be outraged was good enough to come in and talk about how absolutely horrible and amateurish trump was. The initial anchoring would stick even after facts refuting things came out. For example, Koi-gate. These people laughed at the big dope Trump pouring all of his fish food in. He was impatient, he didn't know what he was doing. Magical experts came out and told us how bad it was for the fish, how trump should have known this very obvious fact. He was an embarrassment to the country. After it came out that the video was edited and zoomed in on Trump, and the actual unedited video showed that Abe had dumped his food first, and Trump merely followed suit, those opinions remained. And these were people who had been rational debaters. It was sad.

    Not even close to fear mongering. But, it is clear (though I don't know how) that his rhetoric and the conservative media have been able to serve as a gatekeeper to the truth even for you.
    Blueanon in all its nutty glory.

    Trump even has CD, an atheist, in his infinite power and control.

    There was no "insurrection" on January 6, real or attempted. What we had was a protest that spiraled out of control. The so-called "insurrection" exists purely in the imagination of partisan hacks like you.

    I commented on some of the others too, as can be seen starting here - including one about sand deposits that you thought was about glaciers.

    You compounded your gullibility by refusing to say how old you think the Earth is - not exactly the mark of some-one who is intelligent or informed.
    Good thread. I recommend others read it as well. I stand by my arguments and the facts presented to support them (well, except for that joke article I inadvertently posted. That one I disown. ).

    He has absolute power? If that's the case why does Qanon Barbie not have her committee assignments?

Of course Ignorant Roy chose to focus on only that link and blatantly ignored the other dozen or so legitimate sources I had posted.

    Has that term ever been used to describe anyone under 60?

    FIFY and changed it to a truism. At least for now. Let's see if they ever recover from TDS.
