My father, my brother and myself are all uncut. In The Netherlands about 30% of men are circumcised, but they are mostly religious and/or immigrants. For native non-religious men, like me, it is rare and mostly only done out of medical necessity.

"synonyms: leftism, Fabianism, syndicalism, consumer socialism, utopian socialism, welfarism; communism, Bolshevism; radicalism, militancy; progressivism, social democracy; laborism; Marxism, Leninism, Marxism–Leninism, neo-Marxism, Trotskyism, Maoism"

And your argument is?

Your having traffic jams on the way to the food line.
That doesn't happen in social democratic countries.

"Insurance,retirement,paid vacation,are all supposed to be incentives to take a job with a company and STAY until you retire." That's absolutely true.
The companies want loyal employees, even if the employees would be better off changing their employer. What incentives are there for companies to be loyal to their employee(s), when the employer would be better off changing their employee(s)?
Or is it just a one way street?

Than that leads to questions like:
- Did it lead to an investigation from the U.S. Department of Labor?
- Did the company violate regulations?
- Did the company (have to) pay compensation?
- Did the company get fined?
- Did the company fight in court to minimize their liability?
- Did the company roll back the changes in the way the job was done?
- How much risk is left for re-occurrence?
- Did the company promise to do better on safety in the future?

You don't have to answer, but that's what I think is important to make sure that your tragedy is not followed by others.

A man bumps into a friend in the pub and tells him, “You don't believe it, I have a nympho waiting in my car in the parking lot. Only she demolishes me, I am exhausted. I have to catch my breath. Can't you go to the car and keep her busy for a while? The interior lighting is broken, so she will not notice that you are not me.” His friend agrees and walks to the car. He gets in and they immediately start to fuck in the backseat. A few minutes later, a policeman sees them going at it and starts tapping the window annoyingly and shining his flashlight in. “What are we doing here?” Asks the officer. "Nothing to worry about, officer, it's my wife." "Oh sorry, I didn't know sir." "It's okay, neither did I, until you shined in with your flashlight."

It would be nice if those labels were less important and people were more open
to self-discovery. There's still a lot of stigmas attached to sexual orientation,
I would like to see vanish.

That's horrible. Even though we fight a lot here, I'm glad you lived
and hope you're enjoying your life again.
Was it due to employer negligence or was it just a freak accident?

Now I might start annoying you again, but many people (especially on the right) are in favor of deregulation. If they are also talking about deregulation on safety, that's mostly only helping your employers, while risking the life and health of employees.

In the US, in 2019, 5,333 workers died on the job. It was 5,250 in 2018. That's 58% more than the EU-27 ( 3,332 in 2018 ), while the EU-27 has about 100 million more working people and it incorporates countries like Romania, Latvia and Bulgaria.

Please do not take this as a USA sucks, Europe is great comment,
just understand that American workers are being taken advantage of.

The point was that most of them didn't need to clean up, because they never had a problem. It's the same with drinking. Many people drink sometimes, some young people drink way too much in the weekends, but most of them will not turn into alcoholics. If they do anyway, we help them. We don't throw their asses in jail,
to make sure they're fucked up for life.

I haven't checked if that Newsmax data is correct. It might be.
"Between the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years, after pot was legalized for adults, there was a 23% rise in marijuana use over the past 30 days and teens' likelihood of lifetime use rose 18%."
But don't you think they should follow it a bit longer than "the past 30 days"?
What did you think happened after alcohol prohibition ended in 1933? PARTY!

And since then, how many people went to jail for pot use?

My argument for legal weed is not because I think it's good to smoke weed. I don't smoke or drink myself. My argument is that legalization will actually NOT increase the use, but will reduce the problems of weed.
If weed is illegal, you need to buy it from a dealer. That dealer might also sell you other drugs. In our 'coffeeshops' you can only buy weed and some weed products, but not hard drugs. They also have information about THC and CBD content.

Even if forbidding weed would lower the use a bit, it destroys many more lives, because people go to jail for it. If you've been to jail, your future is pretty much fucked. That doesn't happen in my country. I've known several guys that smoked weed pretty heavily for a while and then they stopped or only smoked every once in a while. Now they have good jobs wives or girlfriends and some have children.
Even my brother used some weed, was a heavy smoker and drinker. He gave all
of that up a long time ago.

I've known only one guy that started using harder stuff and got addicted. I knew him from birth and saw him make a mess of his life. But actually I predicted that for him, from when he was young. He was always getting into trouble and he got me into trouble a few times too. I cut contact with him, but heard about him though his brother. He finally killed himself at age 30 something.
But, I also knew guys that did coke or XTC every other weekend. They also just stopped one day and made a good life for themselves. One colleague uses coke sometimes and he is doing great at our company. He of course doesn't tell everyone about his occasional drug use.

According research on the topic, in The Netherlands about 10% of adults say they've smoked weed that year. In 2018 23,7% of adults admitted ever trying weed in their lives. I don't think that's a lot for a country where you can buy weed in several coffeeshops for any medium size city.

There's about 7 times more people addicted to alcohol than to cannabis.
In 2018, 224 people died from the direct effects of drugs.

I agree completely. However I do think democracy is important. Only about 25% supports banning of guns completely. Unless that changes, my opinion is that they can keep their guns, no matter how many people get killed by them.
There are however majorities on several stricter gun regulations. The will of the people has been held up for years by powerful interest groups. Money in politics is why not just their country, but all of us are doomed.
Religion doesn't help much either.

You can never hold a manufacturer liable for what people do with their products.
That's true for cigarettes, alcohol, guns, cars, chainsaws, rat poison and a whole lot
of other dangerous stuff. That should be the same for cannabis.
There is are lot of products legally available that are bad for people. Isn't it freedom letting people make their own decisions on their own responsibility, unless it hurts other people?
How do you think recreational weed users hurt themselves or others more, than smokers, drinkers or daily junk food consumers?
Those are freedoms that I (as a lefty, normally pro-big-government) would want the government not to mess with. I would only ask them to regulate and tax according to the damage it does to society. Besides that, they can do government information campaigns and incentives for healthy life choices.
Or do you have a principle against recreational drug use?
You're not religious, right?

Alcohol makes you a much worse driver than weed does, but I agree that driving stoned should be illegal. There is a problem with testing being too sensitive. There have been court cases over here from people that lost their drivers license over cannabis use. There are no clear and practical limits on it, while there are for alcohol use. I'm sure that there are better tests possible. Why make a difference between the two? Just find out what the limit is for safe driving and regulate accordingly.

I've heard these employer drug tests are so sensitive, that eating some poppy seed products can give a positive opioids test. If the use of legal products like CBD oil can prompt your firing, there's something wrong with the rules.
Employers in The Netherlands are forbidden to do drug-tests. It's not necessary, you can fire someone over their behavior. You don't get to fire someone for what they do in their weekends or evenings and doesn't affect your business (too much).

I wish our government legalized cannabis. We have decriminalized and regulated the sales, but not the production. There's still a lot of crime around the production, because it has to be done in secret. If it's completely legal, it's also taxed and regulated. You don't need to allocate tax dollars for it, it's a very profitable market. It will generate lots of tax revenue, just like cigarettes and alcohol.

Who believes they want to market marijuana to minors on television? That's just propaganda. I'm sure they will ban the sales to minors, just like alcohol and cigarettes.

I've tried weed only two times, once by inhalation and once by consumption. I can't see what the fuss is about. With a few friends we smoked a huge joint. For about 15 minutes everything was very funny and we laughed a lot. I never tried it again until about 15 years later when we ate some spacecake. That tasted horrible, but did absolutely nothing for me. I hear it's very relaxing for people with ADHD. My mother even makes tea from it for severe cramps in her back. Why would people be punished for using that?
I thought you liked freedom.

Have you ever tried weed?



By Ananas2xLekker at 15,Feb,21 12:38
Sure, but maybe I'm not completely straight, because I would like to return the favor.

For the last 20 years my commute also has been 30 miles each way. When I did the shifts, I only had traffic after the day shift and after the night shift. For that I needed to be at location, no matter the weather. Documentation was part of the job, but the reason was the process. It was mostly light work, clean and safe. However after 9 years I was ready for a next step and I think this job is rewarding enough to make it to retirement. However the organization is always in motion and self development is a big goal in my company. For now, I like being a generalist, but I have done courses on safety and design and I would like to do more projects on that.

If your job was that dangerous you might have made a smart decision to retire early, if it could have killed you. Even in my cushy job, I once took a jolt of 400V. Under other circumstances that could have killed me. It was my own fault, I neglected some safety procedures, because of time restraint. It was a good lesson and part of the reason for my specialization in safety. Another reason is making sure that everyone can stay alive and healthy until retirement. Still, it's also just interesting and rewarding work.

Of course, I care about a lot of things. I was even interested in the JFK murder at some point, but there's not going to be any new information or closure on that topic. The murders are interesting mysteries, but unless someone had new evidence, the topics are a bit stale to me. Still, "Who cares" was a bit of an unconsidered reply.

My own "backyard" will not be of much interest here, because this site is mostly populated by Americans. There is a lot happening in The Netherlands too and I have opinions about that, which I post on Dutch channels all the time. Somehow that audience is a bit more receptive.

I'm however following US developments a lot too, because there's so much more offered. There's many YouTube channels with a diverse range of political views.
I have been engaged in the discussion there for years now too.

Ive been a member of this site for years, but I didn't join for political discussions.
I only joined those discussions, when I got triggered by the disconnect with facts and logic. I was really surprised by the overwhelming majority of right-wingers on a site for dickpics, which "May serve as a gay/bi dating also.". I know this not corresponding with the varied opinions of the electorate.

I actually like to challenge my opinions with opposing views. In normal times my colleagues were willing participants. Don't think they are all lefties, because it's The Netherlands. My best colleague is actually very right wing and also very smart. He's almost never wrong on the facts, he just has other opinions. It's hard to win an argument on social benefits from someone who says: "You know I do not care a lot about other people, especially poor people." or win an argument on climate change from someone who is honestly saying "I will be alright and you too." or "That's why we don't want kids." or "Yes, we will fuck up the planet, but maybe it's better humanity goes extinct, so nature can recover.". However, I see a challenge with an argument that's full of holes or worse.

There was no interference needed for the republicans to loose. Every single poll, from liberal and right wing polling organizations, predicted Trump was going to loose, months before. Trump was preparing all his followers by saying if we loose there was fraud. It will only be a fair election if we win.
If than after the election your claims of fraud or ridiculously easy to disprove, the whole republican organization is doing their absolute best to find anything and you still loose all but one of 60 lawsuits, that do not even try to prove fraud, than I just say you're full of shit.

Either democrats are masters of fraud or republicans are pathetically incompetent or there was no fraud.

Working from home saves me 1.5 to 2 hours a day in traffic. I already work in an office most of the time and there are days I don't have to leave my desk once. Most socializing is during breaks. Everyone is very busy, so I would normally spend 5-10 minutes just talking to colleagues. I think two days a week in the office for meetings and socializing would be enough for me to prevent depression.

We already communicated with Skype a lot, because we have several buildings and walking to production will take at least 20 minutes. Normally when I had ordered something for my colleagues I would drop it off or assemble it for them, now I have to ask them to do it themselves. If there is a safety issue, I like to do investigation on site. Now I do interviews and ask for pictures. After Covid I could plan that for the days I am at work.
Most creative work, like researching solutions to problems, designing and drawing equipment is done behind a desk. Other work is searching suppliers or contractors, requesting quotations, writing product requirements document, test protocols, reports and procedures, data analysis, excel work, work permits and lots of mailing to organize everything. I do like being more directly involved, but because of Covid,
I have to delegate that to technical staff at the moment.

Bikes are popular here, because there is almost no free car parking anymore and parking garages are ridiculously expensive.
The Netherlands is fifth of the most densely populated countries, with more than 10 million inhabitants, in the world. Because of traffic in the city, a bike is often faster than a car and you can place it almost anywhere, for free or cheap in a guarded garage.
Most people have a car, but for short distances (which it often is, because it's a small country) we use a bike. It's also free exercise for us.

Restrictions on cars? You can say that, because fuel is much more expensive here.

It might also be true that not many people get their drivers license at 18. I was 23.
The theory exam is very difficult and driving lessons are expensive. You need a lot of lessons before you can drive in heavy traffic, in complex situations, with bikes and pedestrians everywhere and lots of road signs. My lessons and exams where in Rotterdam, for which you can add some road rage from fellow road users. It took me some 40 lessons and two practical exams. That's about average.

No, you are the moron, because that is not the meaning. That's what it might mean TO YOU, because you are prone to believe in many conspiracy theories. But that's not what it actually means. It means that you believe that behind any logically explainable event there is actually a dark secret plan made by powerful people, but you have no evidence or there is even overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Constantly seeing conspiracy theories is actually a symptom of the mental disorder called schizophrenia.

Of course there are many actual dark secret plans made by powerful people, which they will call conspiracy theories when they get discovered. Most of the time these actual conspiracies get discovered by tireless journalists or hackers and your government hunts them down with a passion, from both parties. I'm talking about people like Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. Then you know powerful people were up to no good and are protecting themselves.

At the moment we have the most strict restrictions of the whole Covid pandemic. Restaurants are closed, most shops are closed, masks are mandatory in supermarkets and in public transport and we have a curfew from 21:00 till 04:30.
There is aid for businesses to pay the salaries of their employees, so they don't have to fire them. Still, many businesses that had just started before Covid, do not get help or hardly any. There is also a problem for independent entrepreneurs. They get unemployment benefits, but not if their spouse makes too much money. There are a lot of people hurting and we find groups that have been forgotten all the time. Everyone hopes most businesses can keep it up a little bit longer. We are trying to keep away the British Covid version.



By Ananas2xLekker at 13,Feb,21 12:15
"Is there some evidence of this claim we will return to normal?"
That is a difficult, but actually very good question.

I am not even sure if we will actually truly beat Covid completely. However, when enough people are vaccinated, we will have to deal with the disease differently. I think the chances are good that we don't have to keep our distance anymore, that restrictions on all jobs are lifted and we can have social lives like before the pandemic. If that part of normal life returns, I think struggling businesses will then soon be back on their feet.
I don't want everything back to normal. My managers have seen how well we perform while working from home. I have heard they will allow that after this crisis, much more than before. I would like it if we would be allowed to work from home at least 2 days a week.

Other than that, I don't think that normal was all that perfect. We saw who are doing the 'essential jobs'. They received a lot of praise and applause. I don't want them to return to normal, which was working very hard, without making enough money to live on.
That's why I support raising the minimum wage to €14/hr.

Why has Bill Gates been made the face of Covid vaccines? He's just a smart guy who played the system hard, made a lot of money and now tries to absolve himself for never caring about people, by doing charity. I do think he cares somewhat about the problems in the world, but he cares the most about the admiration he gets for it.
He does fund research for vaccines, but he obviously doesn't know a whole lot about it. You're not a virologist as soon as you give some money to some pharma research companies.

Many people have concerns about the speed at which the pharma companies developed and produced the vaccines. I get that, and I do have some concerns. They had to rush it, because millions of people are dying. However, I know about the tests that were done and that's good enough for me. They didn't listen to Trump when he tried to hurry the process.

Do you deny that vaccines have played a role in eradicating deceases?
Would you want to forbid vaccines? What actually is your opinion on the subject?
Is it just that you don't want the government to force you to take it? What sort of world do you think we would live in, if people would never be forced to do anything, even if it's for the benefit of everyone? I know you believe in forcing people on a lot of other subjects, especially working to survive. Why not force them to get a shot and take some risk, to survive? If you are a patriot, you get that shot, for all the American families who are suffering right now.

When I get my shot, many millions of people will have preceded me. Those people all had weaker health than me, because that's why they get priority. I will hear from those people how they dealt with the vaccine and then I know if it's safe (enough).
I know enough about the vaccines to not worry about long term effects.
I know some people had short term effects, sometimes severe. However, the risk that I will take, when being vaccinated is lower than stepping in my car and going to work. For what I know already, I would take the shot, if I got an invitation tomorrow, but I'm sure in a few months I would feel even more confident.



By Ananas2xLekker at 13,Feb,21 10:56
I do have an opinion on almost everything and there's always logic and principles behind it. There will be a time that most uneducated work will be obsolete, because of automation and less jobs will be needed overall. The only way to not let part of people starve to death is pay more for less work, educate people better and take care of the people who are not smart enough to do the work that is left.
If you don't want to pay lazy people, are you going to provide meaningless work, just to pay them for something?
Or will you just let them starve?

The U.S.'s reserve of gold equals 8,133 tonnes, worth more than $373 billion. That sound like a lot right? Wrong, it's just a little bit more than Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk own together. The Central bank needed to print more money than there was gold, because all the rich people took the money.

Please stop repeating those Trump lies. They have counted all the votes in the contested states several time. They have found only a few fraudulent votes and those were Trump voters. Trump claimed the voting machines were flipping votes, but that has been debunked thoroughly.

There were about 60 lawsuits and Trump lost all of them but one and that one did not prove any fraud.

Your ideas are one big illogical mess about the banks, overtaxing, illegal aliens and other conspiracy theories, but there is nothing to substantiate your claims.

What is your idea of corruption? Isn't that rich people giving money to politicians to do their bidding? You don't think republicans are against that right? They invented all the laws that make it possible for rich people to give unlimited amounts of money to politicians and have almost no transparency.

Did you know that the Trump tax cuts for the common people have expired now? Trump made them only temporary, but he made the tax cuts for the rich and corporations permanent. Now why would he do that, if he was so concerned with common people?

Darwin's theory of survival of the fittest is sort of the principle of capitalism isn't it. I didn't understand whether you for or against that survival of the fittest. You know I don't, I am a supporter of a strong safety net, so people will be supported in times of need and no one has to live in poverty.

You can easily verify everything I'm saying, from multiple sources.

So do you worry about 5G?
And did you worry about 4G and 3G and the Wifi in your home?

Half of Israel has been vaccinated and 14 million people in the UK.
Have you heard of significant health problems?

I do share some worries about the following topics:
Authoritarianism
Surveillance
Robotization

So does this video propose any solutions?
No, because that was not the purpose of this video.
It's purpose was FEAR!



By Ananas2xLekker at 12,Feb,21 15:51
I've seen the whole video. There is one great truth in it:

The only thing a government needs, to turn people into slaves is fear.
If you can figure out something to make them scared,
you can get them to do anything you want."

And then they are trying to put FEAR in you, for a shitload of topics,
probably hoping one will stick.

Why is this still a very important topic? Because the impeachment of Trump is still going on and he's still facing several lawsuits. Trump might run again in 2024 or he might start the Patriot party. Whatever your opinions on that, Trump is still very relevant.

Some of those popular progressive plans are:
- Raising the minimum wage to a living wage
- Taxing the wealthy more
- Single payer healthcare
- Investments for public education
- Investments for infrastructure
- End forced arbitration in employment contracts
- Legalize marijuana
- Decriminalize personal drug use
- Stricter campaign finance laws
- Stronger campaign-finance disclosure laws
- Build a universal child care system
- Enact paid sick leave
- Enact paid family leave
- Promote sensible and fair work scheduling
- Eliminate discrimination in hiring, promotion, and pay
- Enforce trade laws that help American workers
- Implement a financial transactions tax (FTT)

If you think those progressive ideas are communism, than communism is great!

It's full of conspiracy theories and lies.
If you see in the near future (between 6 months and a year) that the conspiracy theories were not true and we will actually go back to what was normal before Covid, will you learn from that?

Maybe I didn't look enough, but I have searched on "violent BLM protesters" on YouTube and found some people throwing rocks at the police, some burning buildings and burning cars. The worst I found was Seattle.

It was certainly not peaceful, but we have seen similar violence from our anti Covid protesters. I do think destroying private property is worse than destroying government property, when it's the government you're protesting. However, I wasn't that shocked about the destruction of some capital property, I was shocked about the murderous blood lust of the capital protesters. They were really planning to kill politicians, no matter if they were democrats or republicans. It's a damn miracle they didn't get to any of the politicians. Not that I think their lives are worth anything more than civilian lives, but they do stand for democracy. It's really the people who talk about the constitution the most, who wipe their ass on it the most.

I was very surprised they wanted to hang Mike Pence. I really dislike Mike Pence, but if there was one loyal defender of Trump, it was him. I've seen right-wingers even hate Lindsay Graham now. If there was one groveling cuck to Trump.....
You right-wingers don't need a lot to make love turn into hate, don't you?
Did you learn that from Trump. He demands absolute loyalty from anyone,
but he throws anyone in front of the bus, as soon as he doesn't need them anymore.

So if we gave him lots of compliments, but it's a fake picture and he actually had a little pinky, would he feel better about himself? I wouldn't.



By Ananas2xLekker at 11,Feb,21 08:26
OK, true, but the point was; if I get compliments for a house that is bigger and better than my actual house, or a car I don't own or a picture of another girl than my girlfriend, THAN why would that make me feel better about myself?

I do like those big titties, but I'm sure I would feel blessed with a flat chested girl too. I think I could make good photo's of a flat chested girlfriend and get likes too. Every woman has something beautiful and there are always men attracted to those features. Some like em big, some like em small.

I can see how you can have your confidence boosted by compliments for real pictures (even if you did your very best to show of the best features), but not for fake ones.

On your comment about AOC:

"Ocasio-Cortez never claimed she was in the main domed Capitol building during the melee. In fact, in her video explaining her experience of the insurrection, she made a point to clarify that she was in her congressional office in a different building nearby."

AOC's office is across the street from the main Capitol building, in the Cannon building, which AP reporters on the scene confirmed was evacuated during the riots.
The Cannon building is also connected to the Capitol building by a series of tunnels, which allow members of Congress to travel between buildings underground.
Those tunnels were mentioned in some earlier communications between militia members charged in the insurrection, suggesting rioters planned to use them to attack members of Congress.
AOC also never claimed she encountered rioters personally, despite false posts claiming she did.

AOC said on Instagram: “For you all to know, there’s the Capitol Hill complex, But members of Congress, except for, you know, the speaker and other very, very high ranking ones, don’t actually work in a building with the dome. There’s buildings like right next to the dome, and that’s where our actual offices are.”

You are posting stuff from Newsmax and your talking about lying media?
You don't think AOC was in any danger from those guys. They had a gallows outside for Pence and Pelosi. How would AOC have been treated if they ran into her?
I'm interested in your source about AOC. Newsmax?

Never heard from you that cops shouldn't have children before. You have been defending their deadly force on any blacks until now. Do you think that cop should have started shooting, instead of begging for his life? He was in a lot more danger than the cop who killed Philando Castile or the one that shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times.

Looks familiar, but I definitely have a better PC than him.
However, don't underestimate nerd power!
He might have just invented the new AirBNB and get a villa, a Ferrari and a sexy girlfriend in a few years. (Or something more realistic, like a house, a red car and
a girlfriend with big boobs, like me)

HAHAHAHA, like Newsmax cares about climate change.
Still, I agree John Kerry could take a normal plane. I'll allow him first class.
It gives a lot of freedom for selfish pricks who don't care about climate change. They can never be considered hypocrites for using or having a plane. However, I prefer a hypocrite who tries to do anything on climate change over a selfish prick who doesn't give a damn.

I don't understand why someone would post pictures claiming they are their own.
Maybe you will get some compliments, but those are meaningless when it's for
someone else's pictures.

No other country would be affected much from anything our politicians do, that's true. However, the whole world suffers anytime you vote in another ignorant idiot like Bush or Trump. It's not just their America first idea's, it's mostly because they are incapable of making the right call on anything. It's just a crisis waiting to happen. And it always does.

The rest of the world sees the US as the greatest threat to world piece. But war will probably not be how you destroy humanity, it will most likely be your denial of climate change.

I'm not blind. Progressive ideas are wildly popular in the US. Even more so than in
The Netherlands. Most of your people are just to stupid to vote in line with their ideas or they have just given up on voting, because neither party does anything for them.
Sad that you don't know anything about your own country.

Who is talking about Hunter Biden again?

Trump hired Ivanka and Jared Kushner as senior White House advisors. That's the definition of nepotism. It served them well. They made up to $640 million while serving in the White House.

Right-wingers would blow up if Biden did the same for Hunter. I'm actually honest to say that I wouldn't want Hunter anywhere near the White House. However, I've only heard defenses from right-wingers about Jared and Ivanka.

Of course he's not going to be president anymore. This election was his last chance.
He would be 82 in 2024. That's way too old to start a presidency.

But not to worry, his ideas have never been more popular. Time for the next generation.

Besides that, your post is pretty hateful. That shows your character a lot. Didn't see any libs here that wished death on Trump, when he was in hospital with Covid.

Fox News hit with $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit.

The Dominion voting machines or Smartmatic software were NOT USED in the 'battle ground states' of the general election!

Fox News was just repeating Trump's lies without doing ANY fact checking.

Bullshit, Trump did nothing to get the vaccines made. It's all private pharmaceutical companies doing their thing. Trump didn't even order enough, while the rest of the world has ordered more doses than their population needs, from all the companies.
Trump let Covid loose on the US by making you think it was a hoax or it was just a flew or masks don't work or your cases are low or by limiting testing or just let people keep going to work, while he knew better.
Trump wanted people back in church. I think that is a little less important than children going back to school.

Neither the democrats or the media would have held him back in any way if he wanted to take it serious. They tried to make him take it serious every day, but he wouldn't.

Your wrong, they are in their black areas just because of poverty and you are in your white areas because you don't want black people around you.
I'm not saying there are no white or black areas in The Netherlands and it's true that minorities are much more concentrated in the poor areas and much less in the rich areas, but it's much more mixed here.
I live in a moderately priced row of houses and about 30% of families are first or second generation non-white immigrants. They are all doing well in their lives. They have good jobs, their children are doing their best in school or they are getting their careers well on the way. They are friendly, hospitable, social and trustworthy. As a matter of fact they make much better neighbors than the white people. In our whole street there are two white families we socialize with and the rest are just neighbors we greet on the street and maybe have some small talk with. They are all very private people.
The non white people are much more open and inviting. There are two families we socialize with regularly and two other families every now and then.
It feels like they just value community a lot more. I don't know if that is the same in the US and maybe it takes a lot more to fix mistrust between your people, but I think you're missing out from that separation.
