Enough, already!

I was thinking the same thing after reading the following comment above by Ironwood:

"COVID-19 and dengue aren't enough?
Now there's been a few cases of bubonic plague in Mongolia.
Sure hope Trump's in jail by the time that sucker hits the western hemisphere."

COVID is not Trump's fault. Get used to Trump because he will ge re-elected again. Anyone voting for Sleepy Joe should have their head examined. My first and last political comment.

I've been reading this board for years but it's really starting to bother me. Keep your frigging politics off the board.

Excuse me, but U.S. politicians, mainly the Idiot-in-Chief, are RESPONSIBLE for their actions which not only have caused deaths in their country but in Mexico (as well as the deaths of Mexicans in the USA whether at the hands of white nationalists or the out-of-control virus), and now we can't expect many tourists from the USA because the contagion is going through a worse second wave than the first go around. If the truth hurts then go hide in a cave or your closet away from sources of exterior information.

i'm sure the FBers who ban political discussions would love to console you with info about happy hours you won't be enjoying and bang for your buck that is rather pointless at the moment if discussions about cold and hard reality upset your sensibilities. Locals are more concerned about U.S. tourists bringing the virus with them than about any other tourists, and rightfully so. And since there are causes and effects that can be clearly identified, naming and shaming the culprits should be fair game for discussion.

As bad as many folks are trying to paint the response by Mexico's government, a topic that has always been fair game and which I have gone to great length to respond to, the state of Florida has a worse pandemia problem than the entire country of Mexico. Besides careless people, the people responsible for that are its REPUBLICAN CHUMP SUPPORTING POLITICIANS. I think that bears mentioning. The people preventing the USA from healing itself and who instead are worsening the disease are REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS fomenting careless behavior on the part of their constituents, and because it affects us here that makes it a relevant topic.

I post a lot of local photos and info that barely get a comment, so I'm not sure how many times we have to see the same questions asked and answered over and over, but I prefer being relevant and honest, not all warm and fuzzy and telling potential tourists everything they want to hear whether it's truthful or not, as is common on most other forums. It's a shame if that bothers anyone.

There is relevant and irrelevant political discussion. I tend to tolerate the relevant.

"If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would you think the boy is strange?
Ain't he strange?"

I know...it's only politix...but I LIKE it...I LIKE it...Yes I do...
