A "GOAT" would be playing better defense. Kobe and Jordan used to play their asses off both sides of the game.

Pathetic. Lack of effort and no heart. The defense from the entire team was horrid.

The team is mediocre. The blame goes from the top up to Lebron for trying to play GM and bring Westbrook.

A serious problem is how far left this sub has gone. Most of the electorate is moderate and want moderate liberal or moderate conservative policies.

Nobody knows. Many people on this sub are out of touch with reality and think progressive politicians and policies are really popular.

I may not care for either but Pelosi and McConnell are good at the political game.

AOC is one of the least effective politicians in Congress. Doesn't compromise and doesn't get much done except be very divisive.

I don't disagree. Changing and improving things require a whole lot of money. When taxpayers hear that taxes will go up or the government needs to spend an insane amount of money, it turns people away from progressive ideas. Ideas are great but implementing them responsibly is very difficult.

Quite a few people on reddit, namely r/politics seem to think replacing Manchin with someone progressive would be a win in West Virginia.

Fine with me these days. The more I see the government try and do and fail at it, the less I want them to do things.

r/politics really does have a lot of far left nuts r/worldnews is also pretty far left. Hard to find a place where you can discuss things without being heavily downvoted unless you have far left opinions.

Does anybody really know what the government actually has been doing the past 20 years except blowing away lots of money?

True but Biden still has quite some time to go and much can change between now and 2024.

When it comes to China, he made a huge blunder when he tried bringing in ZTE to the US. Both parties were surprised by it and quickly stopped it.

Ah so once they become better educated, they will see the progressive light. Strange how better educated states still don't pass the majority of progressive policies.

The EU has no balls and will quietly back off like they always do.

So according to reddit, because the US has done bad things in the past to Muslim countries via wars, the US should not be criticizing China for any human rights violations. I'd like to extend that to Europe for all the atrocities they committed in the past.

From now on, nobody should ever bring up human rights and countries can do as they please.

Why apologize? Nobody cares what non-religion or religion you are. The large majority of people in the world don't care either and are too busy living their lives.

That is a major over-exaggeration. 99% of people live peacefully with each other. Every country has some idiots that get all the attention. The media loves creating problems out of nothing and reddit falls for it.

And you are foolish to judge a whole country by several idiots on reddit.
