Trump suggested injecting ultraviolet light and disinfectant directly into to veins of people.  


No he did not, the fact that you actually still believe this is actually troubling.


You still believe he said the white supremacists at Charlottesville were good people too?


I mean both of those things are lies that the media portrays as facts. When in fact they are cut up and taken out of context phrases/sentences.

He’s not. You just don’t like him and his politics. 


Biden’s complete lack of a train of thought at times, completely forgetting where he is at, etc is different than saying something dumb. As ICLfan said, to anyone looking objectively at least.


I have already stated I am not voting for either of these morons, voting for Jo, but it is quite obvious there is a vast difference is the dumb things Trump says vs completely spacing out like Biden does.

I wonder it will matter to anyone voting wise, if the fact that Kamala Harris is a direct descendent (according to her fathers own writings) of an actual plantation slave owner in Jamaica.


The fact that her father has claimed this is not disputed, just if he was being truthful or not is what the defenders are saying. 


That could come back to haunt the Biden ticket when she pushes against Trump for being racist.

Exactly. We have three months left of getting Biden’s every word dissected while trump says dumb stuff everyday and it’s crickets. 


If you believe it’s crickets when Trump says dumb stuff you haven’t been paying attention, especially to any form of media, main stream or social.

You mean 40% of 1000.

But but...the polls!


You are not wrong, but the margin of error here is +/-4% with 1000 polled in a 300+ million population. So it is not that far off.

I think people are expecting Biden to serve a full 4 years. I don't think most people are thinking he will not serve the full 4 years. As I've said on here, I don't buy the mental issues. 

Also, uhhh Hillary was one of the most hated politicians in recent memory going back to her days as first lady of Arkansas. 

40%+ of Americans, and not all republicans either (20% of democrats) believe he has dementia.

On the flip side, are people or did people vote for Pence? 

I don't think it matters. VP selections are largely irrelevant...unless they fall flat on their face....see Palin. 

I think Trump will make it partially about Kamala playing the “Biden won’t make it past his first term, so she is who you are voting for” angle.

Kamala Harris is Biden’s replacement when he becomes unfit

Fixed your post for you.

Yeah I saw that headline and thought no fucking way. 


On another note, I saw this story and study yesterday out of Duke on the effectiveness of different type of masks. Interesting, the neck and gator style masks are largely ineffective.

According to the 2nd link they cut back 50% of the droplets. While that is the worst of all the ones they tested, that is still hardly ineffective.

Blah blah blah. I stand by what I said—those giving Biden shit for saying dumb shit completely ignore that Trump says equally dumb shit. Call it dementia, intelligence levels, whatever you want—but they’re both morons  

Also, I spend a lot of time around people with dementia, both within my family and clients at work. 


Saying something dumb, which Trump did above, is different than completely bumbling over what you are trying to say, going off into complete blank stares, etc.


If you truly do work around dementia patients and were being intellectually honest with yourself, you would see the difference.

Wait, which guy is senile?

The President says the “1917 pandemic” ended the Second World War https://t.co/jSltuSYim2

I hope you aren’t equating messing up WW2 for WW1 off the cuff for some of the babbles crap the last few months. If you are then you are grasping at straws here.

LMAO  you would be a cocksucker about that post


I’m saying a public official constantly calling out chicagoans for being grouped together, but not calling out protestors is not right. She either needs to call out both, or don’t call out either one. 


And that’s what the libertarians and conservatives on this site were saying as well. Yet you had problems with them saying it.

She’s starting to annoy the piss out of me. You simply CANNOT post that tweet if you’re going to allow mass protests. Obviously you guys know my stance on all of this, so you know she’s starting to show her idiocy if I’m starting to turn on her  


When libertarians and conservatives on this site pointed out this same hypocrisy you labeled them racists.


Are you racist now?

I didn't say the knee was not a contributing factor. In fact, I made no comment at all after posting excerpts from the article.  I also don't believe 95% of the people realize he had 3x the lethal limit of fentynal in his system. 

Here’s why you are being stupid  


The knee wasn’t a “contributing factor”, it was what caused the death.


If I pull a gun and shoot someone and they die in the hospital. However while in the hospital they got tested for COVID and was positive.


Did COVID kill them or did the gun shot wound?


The knee to the neck for 8 min killed Floyd it doesn’t matter WHAT was in his system, even if it was a lethal dose and he was going to die 2 hours later from it.


A knee to the neck killed him, period. 


Don’t be stupid.

After a rain delay in the 10th,Tribe wins 5-4. Oliver Perez gets the save.
Bats starting to come alive.

Party at Ron Kittle's

Go Tribe!!

I was sitting here watching some BS shows on STO waiting for the game to come back in and...they didn’t switch to the end when it started back up. 


I loved the bunt in the 10th though. Much better than what we have done so far this year in similar situations.

I’ve not paid attention for over a week and it seems everything is getting canceled.....are cases, hospitalizations and deaths in the U.S. up?

No, all 3 are going down...

Since we pay into strs and not social security and are public employees.. I have no idea I don’t see any payroll tax on my check just fed/state tax and income tax outside of the Medicare and insu


You are right. Having a much better pension than SS makes up for it I guess.

This seems like this wouldn’t include teachers 

It would include anyone that pays FICA, why wouldn’t it include teachers?
