    Just needed to add a line that the states can defend themselves and should have been buying their own arms, they don’t need all the federal tanks and guns we have stockpiled.

    They artist missed failing to accept responsibility for the loss of California or New York, as it had nothing to do with the leadershit of the federal government.

    @1, wouldn’t that be after recalling all Air National Guard and Army National Guard military equipment from every state, then offering to sell them back to the states?

    Also, FDR needs to start seizing state militia armories for “redistribution.”

    If anyone is interested, the Atlantic had an article back in 2017, about the time that 20,000 Nazis gathered at Madison Square Garden back in 1939. It has video footage of the event as well.

    and it appears other things have also been lost as well.

    I’ve been watching The Plot Against America, a miniseries that’s currently partway through on HBO (with The Wire producers), a story based on the Philip Roth novel of the same name. It’s an alternative history in which Lindbergh defeats Roosevelt in the 1940 election and makes a pact with the Nazis, and things happen similarly to this comic strip. The TV series has tossed in some asides that sneakily reflect our current administration. The show is well done enough to be quite scary.

    I have absolutely no doubt that Trump would have been happy to work with Hitler.

    Which is all well and good, but we are now in Great Depression II — 16 million+ unemployed, probably more but the websites processing applications crashed, and now we’re going to get a choice between Trump and somebody who believes strongly in austerity and doesn’t want to tax the rich. If Trump loses, we get to see Biden showing us how FDR could have been a better President by refusing to have the New Deal.

    You imagine Trump wants to tax the rich?
    Because, if not, what you wrote is utterly disingenuous.

    (Well, your schtick is known; put down whoever opposes Trump, always, forever)

    John Morales@10,

    Indeed – how would any of The Vicar’s posts – or those of Captain Jeep-Eep – be different if they were being paid* by Trump to demoralise opposition to him?

    *Or more likely, promised payment that never arrived!

    @#10, John Morales:

    If I thought Trump wanted to tax the rich, I would be voting for him in spite of everything else. At this point, practically every problem we have in this country right now has either sprung directly from, or is made massively worse by, inequality. The whole point of phrasing it that was is that both choices are terrible. We either get Trump destroying everything in novel ways, or we get Biden normalizing all of Trump’s novel forms of destruction the same way Obama normalized GWB’s policies — and in the latter case, since Biden is going to be desperately ineffective at running the country for a wide variety of reasons, in 2024 whatever outright Nazi the Republicans run will win in a landslide. The Democrats got played; Trump’s supporters were donating to Biden’s PAC specifically to make this happen, and we took the bait.

  13. John Morales says

    Vicar (singular) @12:

    We either get Trump destroying everything in novel ways, or we get Biden normalizing all of Trump’s novel forms of destruction the same way Obama normalized GWB’s policies

    Heh.

    So, by your claim:
    * with Trump, novel forms of destruction on an ongoing basis.
    * with Biden, normalising the above, but no novel forms of destruction.

    Even by your own claim Trump is a worse outcome, unless you like novel forms of destruction. So, why not seek to minimise the worse outcome?

    PS @13, equivalent version: “how would things be different if things were different?”

  14. VP says

    @Vicar’s claims about Biden not wanting to tax the rich is a complete fabrication. The ACA, or the Big Fucking Deal in Biden’s words, increased taxes significantly on the richest, and redistributed that money to the poorest.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2018/03/28/obamacare-jacked-up-taxes-on-the-1-percent-gave-16-billion-annually-to-poor/

    In 2015, the Tax Policy Center estimated that the tax burden on the richest increases by 6% up to 33.8% of their income during the Obama years.

    https://money.cnn.com/2015/01/30/pf/taxes/obama-taxes-rich/index.html

    This was all despite stringent opposition by Republicans, and the fact that he and Biden inherited the worst recession since the Great Depression which naturally required tax cuts to begin with.

  15. KG says

    How would any of Biden’s supporters’ posts be different if they and Biden were both Republicans? – The Vicar@13

    They would be urging everyone to vote for Trump. And of course you have no actual answer to my question, so you try to change the subject.
