After he wondered if banning LBGT students to their own classrooms is next. Where is that pesky disinformation czar?

This will go over as well as the basket of deplorables.

Half the country?  You think half the country likes Trump?

Whoever feeds Biden his lines is politically inept.  This tactic has already been tried (Hillary) and it was a disaster.  W was the last president that at least tried to pretend to represent all Americans and not just his followers.  That apparently has been lost.

Far more than half the country identifies with making America great.  And, since you mentioned Trump, perhaps check the record number of votes he received as a republican and give us an update.

Maybe you should check the votes then check what 50% (half) means?

We were told by biden, his handlers, and the media that he would unite us; instead he has done nothing but further divide us and is now labeling over the half the citizens as extremists.  Excuse me, but that is something a real dictator would do, while simultaneously working to censor free speech and silence opinion.

The markets today… are something. Serious question, I thought crypto was supposed to not move with the market? Looks like Bitcoin down big too.

As far as I can surmise, most of the trading activity in bitcoin is day traders and institutional guys.  To the extent leverage is involved, you tend to sell more liquid assets to meet margin calls in a down market.

Or we might speculate that bitcoin, itself, is a proxy/leading indicator for the larger market bubble (driven by over a decade of easy money - we've seen this movie before).

The computerized trading programs really seem to drive market volatility. They tend to pile in when big price movements disconnected from fundamentals trigger buy/sell in these programs.  ETF's have a ton of buying & selling, too, in order track whatever benchmark indexes they are designed for.

Increased volatility, inflation & energy prices, earnings misses, Q1 GDP contraction....lot of flashing red lights of a coming recession.

If he won't resign, and cannot currently be impeached, hopefully he will at least be excommunicated from The Church, and Pelosi with him.


The line in the sand is overdue.

So Dementia Joe forgot that he's actually pro-life.  But, you know, there's no signs of mental decline....

Not at all; if he decides he does not want to adhere to the most fundamental tenets of the religion, then he is effectively removing himself from The Church.  The rest of us would simply appreciate the formality of the exit.

Sounds like addition by subtraction. For him, that is.

Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist...but if Biden actually did win the election, why is he still campaigning against Trump?

Because Trump is possibly running in '24 and, if there's one thing a career politician knows how to do, it's campaign. So, with his popularity numbers being about on par with what mine would be if I was into the third year of my coke-n-hookers fueled presidency, he's probably figuring the best way to handle things is to go after the former guy/potential future opponent. 

EDIT: Also probably because Trump is using his name to campaign for whomever he wants to anoint for all these other seats, so as a means to combat that.
