    The LEFTIES defend their own whether they are right or wrong.
    Some of us can use reason & have principles to sort out what is right.

    I didn't see posts on here roasting Bernie Sanders for instance. There's no shortage of ratbags around but the comments above about the MSM's new target ring true for me and they're definitely misogynistic.

    I guess he's just not featured in the media at the moment. Usually there's plenty of material to roast any socialist, whether they're male, female, black, yellow or white shouldn't matter.

    Julia Gillard, Is that you using the misogyny word to beat down dissenters?
    That playbook is getting a bit old, we are waking up to it.

    The LEFTIES tried the misogyny thingy on Tony Abbott, but it didn't gain any traction after his wife & daughters came out & debunked it. How's that bullying thing going against people who use bold, color, and LARGE FONTS in silver stackers, did you have any success bullying that person? _JOHNLGALT.

    "Under capitalism man oppresses man. Under socialism it's the other way around" AOC.

    You can't really compare left vs. right media in the US, because there is no "right" wing MSM. Fox is the only one close, but even they will have always have a leftist on any "panel" of guests. Even though there might be 3 people who are more "right wing", there will be a "lefty" to give an opinion. Go to CNN, MSNBC, etc, and they will only have a panel of far lefties every time, sitting around bashing Trump, as if you are an idiot if you don't agree with them. The few times they have a right wing appearing guest, it is usually some numb-nut that barely tries to defend their position, and comes out looking like an idiot- thus to make any right leaning person appear to be an idiot for holding such views.

    How often will CNN or MSNBC saying ANYTHING remotely positive about Trump? Where on Fox, you have folks on that station that will openly criticize Trump like Shepard Smith, etc. I still think Fox news is run by the same folks who run CNN, MSNBC, etc (in spirit), but they like to make money providing an outlet for non leftists to watch. I still remember seeing the CNN and MSNBC, etc, news folks with tears in their eyes the night Trump won the election.

    People think Fox is a right wing station because they don't constantly trash Trump 24/7. Despite the leftist media, Trump has done good things here and is attempting to fulfill his campaign promises the best he can, even in the face of overwhelming opposition by both left and establishment RINOs (a leftist turned inside out).

    How often did CNN and MSNBC ever trash Obummer when he was giving Iran $150 Billion in US CASH and kowtowing to every foreign leader who hates us, while destroying the US from within via race baiting and bringing socialism?

    Hannity and Carlson are not reporters, they are pundits, CNN and MSNBC for all intents and purposes have pundits 100% of the time disguised as reporters in my opinion.

    If you want 'REAL NEWS', you have to go to an 'Alternative News' site.
    Get a bit of color in your news instead of the 'FAKE NEWS' [email protected] the MSM dishes out.
    If you want to learn anything check out what is offered outside the MSM garbage outlets.

    Social Security and Medicare have been a part of the US system for many years and I am not against them. Having social programs and being a socialist nation are not the same thing.

    I am astounded that some are trying to make this "gender" issue....it's an "moron" (and comedy) issue pure and simple. There's a Fraser Anning thread where SS members are unloading on him, but is that okay cos he's a man???. Anning's opinions like AOC's are up for debate and ridicule like anyone else's.

    The ABC poked a stick or two at Julia as PM and it was damn funny and paid for with Australian tax payer dollars. I didn't hear screams from the left for the show to be taken off the air, the ABC de-funded or calls of gross sexism cos Julia was a woman. Here's a link below for memories and giggles.





    But in case some still think I like dumping on AOC just because she is female...here's Senator Chuck Schumer talking about immigration to balance the ledger...shame it's not funny like AOC.... just gross hypocrisy on show. Total oxygen thief.

    The back story to Rand's Social Security is interesting. She received all of $11,002 in Social Security between 1974 and 1982 (her death).
    ---
    In 1998, Scott McConnell, then the communications director of the Ayn Rand Institute, conducted an oral history interview with Evva Joan Pryor, a social worker from New York who encouraged Rand to sign up for Medicare benefits. Here's the relevant part of the interview where Pryor talked to McConnell about signing Ayn Rand up for Medicare benefits:

    Pryor: She was coming to a point in her life where she was going to receive the very thing she didn’t like, which was Medicare and Social Security. I remember telling her that this was going to be difficult. For me to do my job she had to recognize that there were exceptions to her theory. So that started our political discussions. From there on – with gusto – we argued all the time.

    The initial argument was on greed. She had to see that there was such a thing as greed in this world. Doctors could cost an awful lot more money than books earn, and she could be totally wiped out by medical bills if she didn’t watch it. Since she had worked her entire life, and had paid into Social Security, she had a right to it. She didn’t feel that an individual should take help.

    McConnell: And did she agree with you about Medicare and Social Security?

    Pryor: After several meetings and arguments, she gave me her power of attorney to deal with all matters having to do with health and Social Security. Whether she agreed or not is not the issue, she saw the necessity for both her and Frank. She was never involved other than to sign the power of attorney; I did the rest.

    Pryor does not specifically say she signed up Ayn Rand for Medicare, but the reference to "power of attorney to deal with all matters having to do with health and Social Security" strongly suggests that she did, which would be totally consistent with her professional responsibilities as a social worker.

    Nit-picking by the LEFTIES to try to drag a great lady, with a great mind down to their level.
    To go to that level when it is clear she had contributed to SS & was in the terminal year(s) of her life, just goes to show what the people *without intellect will try. (*NO MORALS).

    The powers are using the crazy left to shut down and take away free speech coz the end goal is to take away peoples rights and to bio chip everyone. Total control!

    In Europe they are doing the same thing but there they are also using the movement of millions of incompatable BS refugees into their nations to cause chaos and divide everyone and through all the trouble the BS refugees cause they will use that excuse to take away everyones rights and bio chip everyone there.

    Never vote leftist labor in Australia!!

    If you showed any intellect you would know that socialism is usually regarded as being on the left in the spectrum of politics you utter twit.
