Universal income and free health care.

Since America started printing money of no actual physical vaulue everything monetary has become a complete farce. Numbers on a screen. Put numbers on everyone's screens 🤷 fuck it 🤷 same principle as just printing money.

@BlueMetalChick and that's more important than healthcare.

I'm gonna boycott American products and avoid America as a place.

It's not much, one person, but I can't do anything else 🤷

@Paliglass From whom does the American government rob oil? Where is all of this oil hidden? My healthcare is excellent. I have no complaints. Law abiding antisense who own guns do so for hunting and personal protection. Criminalizing gun ownership, in addition to violating our Constitution, would do one thing: it would ensure that law abiding innocent Americans were defenseless against the well armed criminals who aim to harm us.

Yes that's nice, good for you. Unfortunately that isn't the case for the majority of the country. The United States has the highest number of uninsured citizens, both as a raw number and as a percentage per capita, of any developed nation on Earth. An average of 45,000 Americans die annually because they cannot access basic healthcare. Yippee that you have good healthcare and are happy with it. We're focused on the people who don't.

Now on the subject of gun ownership, lemme provide you with an example of where gun legislation is needed. When I was 15 years old, and an undocumented immigrant by the way, I was allowed to purchase a firearm for cash money with no background check and no waiting period. I walked into a gun store with a wad of cash and walked out with a semiautomatic pistol. I wasn't even asked for an ID. I support the legality of gun ownership and I think they should be available for purchase, but THAT shit is absolutely absurd. Wouldn't you agree?

I've been assured by many Trumpansies that this is all a hoax.

Plus, the Great Trumpkin promised to single-handedly kill COVID-19 (that's totally a hoax) on April 12th and resurrect the American economy just like Jesus did 1,985 years ago.

If you doubt him, he might think you're not sincere in your loyalty to His Greatness and he will punish everyone by letting COVID-19 (that's totally a hoax) continue to ravage blue states and liberals, so please don't doubt him.

Unless you want to own the libs some more, then you should, umm, doubt him so he will punish us all? Wait. How does it go again? I need to watch FOX News and get my talking points in order.

BofA? Like BofA deez nuts?

Sorry. I couldn't help myself.
@BlueMetalChick I'm aware you're joking but just in case somebody else observes this conversation and doesn't know it's Bank of America

@BetweenKittensandRiots Good idea, someone might think I'm being serious lol. One time back on EP I posted nudes of Drew Barrymore and said it was me and people believed me, so honestly, they'll believe anything.
