Ptown using the Alinsky approach of trying to attach the worst part of one group into the other to make all things even.


The left is 100X more violent and unlawful then the right

What a terrible fucking human being.  I hope he rots in hell - 'Murica first fuck saving the planet!!!

He doesnt get it both ways....you cant bitch about how well things arent going then not spend a billion of your 500 billion to help....and yes he should be funding American innovation.  The reason why he isnt is because he knows the US red tape is going to slow this down and Germany probably doesnt regulate as much.


Its the same as us spending a dollar if we have $500

This is 2020, I wouldn't rule anything out. 

Plus, Trump supporters have been violent over the last 4 years..come on remember Charlottesville? 

Oh I forgot one person drove a car into a crowd......one person.

How about a big Fuvk you to Bill Gates.  Why dont you take your money and do something about it instead of bitching.  In the meantime he is funding a German company on a virus vaccine.  Really....German????  What a POS

This whole shit show does not surprise me one bit. As soon as I saw the news, I knew Mitch would push for a vote and the Ds would use the 2016 example as a reason to not vote. In the end, it is about power, and the Rs cannot pass up the chance to add a third Justice to the court in a four year period. This is a conservatives dream, so of course they are going to put forward a name and press for a vote.

Now, this may shock some on here, but I actually agree the Senate should go through the process of naming a replacement. The President's term does end on 1/20/21 and he has the right to name a replacement. The Senate should do their due process to vet that person and start the process. If it bleeds into past election day, then so be it. 

It gets dicey after that, as in a lame duck, some Senators may be voted out of office and states like GA and AZ may seat some of their Senators during that period. That may lead to the Senate either delaying or voting down the nominee until there is a new Congress in early Jan. 

I do expect the Senate would rush through a nominee though, probably during the lame duck. People will be very upset, but it is what it is in today's political world. 

I also think this may rally the Ds to radially change the Senate if they take the Senate, which they are slightly favored to do right now. If that happens, goodbye filibuster, hello maybe an expanded court, and statehood for DC and PR. 

On a final note, if the court does go 6-3, it may force Congress to grow a pair and actually start to take back power it has conceded to the other branches. I'm not sure that is a bad thing in the long run. As a conservative court and an activists Congress that reasserts power may be a sense of balance. 

You forgot to mention that if the shoe was on the other foot and the Dems had contol.....they would do the same thing

Maybe, maybe not. 

I wouldn't rule out Trump supporters causing violence. 

I mean this is just once example of the supporters blocking early voting yesterday in VA. Lucky, no violence, but it could have escalated.

This would be terrible idea for Trump to do before the election. 


For what reason?  Joe would give an honest interview and let him really dig into the weeds on why he does what he does.  I think Rogan would agree with about 75% of what Trump would say

I listen to Rogan all the time.  One of the best podcasts.  He wouldnt let either of those 2 get away with any of the political crap.


If Trump was smart, He would go on Rogans podcast by himself.

I listen regularly.

This will never happen.

The man was also autistic, and they left his body on the sidewalk for 2+ hours 

Not saying the cop wasn’t justified, but not surprised to see those two things left out of the riveting discussion you guys are having on here. 


The the people in that house should have done a better job handling the situation.  BTW, If they scooped up the body in 20 minutes someone would be yelling about it being too quick

Probably because neither of those things matter to this situation at all?

LOL.

Joe Biden spoke in a field outside the Delaware Museum of Natural History, where his audience of reporters were kept six feet apart from one another using giant rings

there is no way he is even close to winning.  This just doesnt happen when you arent doing anything

OMG it's gonna be a landslide!!!!

Although I've not really heard Ohio being mentioned much.  I guess because polling is a toss-up right now it's just assumed Trump will probably win by 2-3 points.

Even though I favor the electoral college, it's clearly not perfect when candidates spend most of their time in the 11 states that decide the election.  But they do have to campaign in most states to even get the party nomination.

if we didnt have the electoral college they would spend it in 4 states
