  1. You're right. Trump is. And if you believe he's a republican, you know nothing about the party you associate yourself with.
  2. I'm interested in removing Trump from office, that's all. What you're interested or not interested in is a "you" issue and doesn't concern me. I will vote for Joe Biden to remove Trump from office and I will vote for legislators in both houses who will represent and legislate the issues in a manner I agree with.
  3. Remove Trump from office. Next. https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/515891-poll-most-americans-wont-take-a-covid-vaccine-before-the-election A majority of Americans are concerned that a COVID-19 vaccine will be rushed to the market before it's ready because of political pressure from the Trump administration, according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF). Even if a vaccine is available before Election Day, 54 percent of respondents said they wouldn't take it. The survey, released Thursday, found 62 percent of respondents said they were concerned about a vaccine being authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before it is proven to be safe and effective. That number included 85 percent of Democrats, 61 percent of independents and 35 percent of Republicans. If a vaccine were approved before Nov. 3 and made freely available to anyone who wanted it, about half of all respondents said they would not want to get vaccinated. According to the poll, 56 percent of independents and 60 percent of Republicans said they would not get the vaccine, while 50 percent of Democrats said they would. However, 81 percent respondents said they don't believe a coronavirus vaccine would be available before the election.
  4. Did it start and stop with the Obama administration? If you're going to call out the government's eugenics program, why don't you start where it started, the role it played in Nazi Germany and its concentration camps and how it's still going on? Stop cherry-picking to fit your narrative.
  5. Just gonna throw this out there because it's obvious you're not paying attention. You spend more time railing against a guy who hasn't been elected than the guy who's currently in office- pretty bizarre behavior. Do you do the same thing during Panthers games? Bitch about Will Grier while the guy on the field is throwing one pick after another? You're getting one or the other for the next 4 years, so you can either get over it or become part of the solution; and solutions usually don't involve bitching, complaining, whining and crying in your simplistic, ideological world where your idea for that solution is to not vote for anyone. You've had months worth of opportunities to convince me, present to me and show me why your candidate is the best possible choice. I've not seen the first sliver of that, but we've sure been treated to months worth of anti-everything but Trump, and frankly, it's just becoming tiresome.
  6. There's only one thing left in the history of this country that the Cooter hasn't blamed on Joe Biden- his laboratory formulation of the novel coronavirus. So far today, Cooter has laid blame for all of the military coups of Central American countries at Biden's feet, drug him into the conversation of maltreatment at ICE detention facilities, disenfranchising Cuban voters, playing music on a smartphone and who knows what else. Of course it's still early in the day and I'm sure Biden will be named as the guy who first broached the idea of seceding from the union in 1861. So, tell me again why reelecting Trump is a good thing?
  7. Hey now.... I'm old, white and rich, which are the 3 primary prerequisites for being a Trump cuck. But alas, I have a conscience, a soul and I know right from wrong.
  8. More than once, like Trump ordered them to.
  9. This is an adult conversation. Go back to your Play-Doh and stay in the basement until Mom says it's okay to come out.
  10. The media is only as divisive as those who cater to them. If your news sources include Facebook, CNN, Fox or other social media platforms, that's on you. There are many more media sources who are not divisive and selective (Reuters, AP News, BBC, Al Jazeera America, to name a few). Was not "utterly disregarded by Congress." A police reform bill was passed by Congress on June 25, but because the GOP didn't agree with its contents, the bill is now stalled in the Senate, where Mitch McConnell continues to pile up legislation without votes. Instead of posing a rhetorical question, try asking why. We are also living in an environment where you "can get cancelled" if you disagree with the president, just ask Goodyear, for example. Again, if you're using CNN, Fox, Facebook and other social media platforms as your go-to source of accurate, ethical and truthful reporting, then you deserve to be led off the cliff by the Pied Piper you consider "media."
  11. When South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg reported that he "hit a deer," what he actually hit was 55-year-old Joe Boever and his family members are demanding answers. According to the Rapid City Journal, details are thin after Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) briefed the public on the hit-and-run incident where the attorney general struck a person on his way back from a Republican Party event around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. A release from the Department of Public Safety doesn't say if Ravnsborg stopped his car to confirm that he hit a deer and look at the damage to his car. Bloomberg News reported that Ravnsborg swears that he wasn't drinking at the event and he called 911 immediately after hitting the man. "Ravnsborg has received six traffic tickets for speeding in South Dakota over the last six years. He also received tickets for a seat belt violation and for driving a vehicle without a proper exhaust and muffler system," the report also said. But the victim's family is demanding justice. "A deer doesn't look like a human," said Boever's cousin, former state Rep. Nick Nemec (D-SD), according to the Dickinson Press. "My cousin got run over by the Attorney General." Nemec said that he went with his brother to identify Boever's body on Sunday evening, about 20 hours after the incident occurred. "We've got questions why it took so long to contact us," Nemec said. "Was our cousin laying dead on the highway for nearly a day while they were investigating? I don't know." Nemec heard Ravnsborg's apology and said that it "irritated the hell" out of him. He offered his condolences to the family of the victim before they even knew who the victim was," he said. "I saw that statement sometime Sunday afternoon, at kind of the same time we were coming to the realization that the victim was our cousin, and he already offered a statement of condolences to the family, and he didn't even know who the family was, because we hadn't identified the body yet." Nemec recalled that on Saturday, Boever said he hit a hay bale with his white Ford pickup on Highway 14, damaging it. He thinks that his cousin was "probably walking back to the pickup from his home in Highmore when he was struck by Ravnsborg." "All I can think of, was Joe decided to walk back out to his pickup and straighten the bumper himself," he said.
  12. Most business entities have a social media policy which typically translates to: we don't care what you post on social media as long as you're not representing or appearing to represent the organization. I almost had an employee get fired a couple years ago for making a stupid comment on FB. He didn't post it from his office laptop, he didn't post it while on the clock, nor did he say whom he worked for in his post. But, in his FB account photo he's wearing a shirt with the city logo on it, and, legally, that can be construed as representing the city, or whatever entity. A couple of city council members wanted him fired and although I did not agree with anything he said, the fact is he put the rest of my staff in a tough spot because they were also now guilty by association. Likewise, you should not mention anything about your employer in your profile info, as that can also be legally construed as representing the entity. And, if you think potential employers don't screen social media for any of your posts or activity if you're being considered as a possible hire, you're very, very wrong. Again, freedom of speech certainly exists, but you're not immune to the consequences of that speech.
  13. Sure, it's gotta be the product, right? Ratings certainly couldn't be down because of a pandemic, or a 10% unemployment rate, or anything like that...
  14. https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/14/politics/fact-check-trump-mccabe-clinton-mcauliffe/index.html In what may be a new record for President Donald Trump, he made four false claims in one sentence of a tweet on Saturday. The sentence was about Hillary Clinton, Trump's 2016 election opponent, and Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director and acting director of the FBI. McCabe, who is now a CNN contributor, was fired by the Trump administration in 2018, less than two days before his planned retirement, after an investigation found he had lacked "candor" in describing his role in disclosing information to a newspaper. Trump has regularly blasted McCabe in tweets and public remarks. His Saturday sentence on Twitter: "Was Andy McCabe ever forced to pay back the $700,000 illegally given to him and his wife, for his wife's political campaign, by Crooked Hillary Clinton while Hillary was under FBI investigation, and McCabe was the head of the FBI???" Almost everything he said was inaccurate. Let's break down the sentence point by point. "...the $700,000 illegally given to him and his wife, for his wife's political campaign..." Facts First: There are two false claims in these 14 words alone. McCabe himself did not receive any donations, and the donations were not illegal. Trump was referring to $675,288 that was donated to the unsuccessful 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe's wife, Dr. Jill McCabe: $207,788 from the state Democratic Party and $467,500 from Common Good VA, the political action committee (PAC) of then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. There is simply no evidence that any of the donations, which were publicly reported in Jill McCabe's financial filings, broke the law. Trump has a long history of wrongly accusing his opponents of illegal behavior. "...by Crooked Hillary Clinton..." Facts First: Clinton did not make any of the donations. McAuliffe is a longtime friend and political associate of Hillary and Bill Clinton, but there is just no indication the Clintons were responsible in any way for his PAC's giving. "There is no evidence that Hillary Clinton provided political or financial support to Dr. McCabe's 2015 senate campaign," the Justice Department's inspector general wrote in a 2018 report. The donation from McAuliffe's PAC was not at all exceptional. Common Good VA gave larger donations to two other Democratic candidates as the party tried to win control of the state Senate in 2015: $803,500 to Jeremy McPike and $781,500 to Daniel Gecker. Jill McCabe was in a competitive race. She lost by 4.8 percentage points to the Republican incumbent. She noted in a 2018 op-ed article in the Washington Post that the donations from the state party and the governor's PAC were "on par with what other candidates in competitive races on both sides of the aisle received" and that "all those contributions were publicly reported." "...and McCabe was the head of the FBI???" Facts First: Andrew McCabe was not "head of the FBI" in 2015. Rather, he ran the bureau as acting director for nearly three months in 2017 -- long after the donations and his wife's defeat -- after Trump fired director James Comey. McCabe spent most of 2015 as FBI assistant director in charge of the Washington field office. He became associate deputy director in September 2015. McCabe was promoted to deputy director in February 2016. It was only then, after the donations and his wife's defeat, that he assumed a supervisory role on Clinton investigations. "By the time McCabe became Deputy Director and assumed supervisory responsibilities for any Clinton-related matters, Dr. McCabe had already lost her election, and no developments in the Clinton-related matters could have any plausible impact on Dr. McCabe's financial interests," the inspector general wrote in 2018. McCabe voluntarily recused himself from the FBI investigations into Clinton's email practices and the Clinton Foundation in November 2016, after an October 2016 Wall Street Journal article about the donations. (The inspector general reported in 2018 that there were "a few instances" where he did not fully comply with this recusal.) In a separate 2018 report, the inspector general found McCabe "lacked candor" in four instances when discussing, with Comey and with investigators, his role in providing information to the Wall Street Journal for a separate article that discussed the Clinton Foundation investigation. McCabe has disputed this conclusion, saying he never intentionally misled investigators or any FBI director. He declined to comment for this fact check.
