Poll

When I consider the polls, I think that

Kid is right and the majority of national polls understate Trump's strength.
- 2 (25%)
Kid is wrong; the majority of national polls have Biden's strength about right.
- 2 (25%)
the polls are irrelevant and therefore so is Kid.
- 4 (50%)

yes, when Jed, Granny, Jethro, and Ellie May moved to California in 1962, the Santa Ana winds were blowing...drying out the vegetation...as they do every year..."fastest burning ground-cover in the western world".

Josh changed the name a couple days ago,  as sort of a joke.   I'd vote to restore the original name and let the "anti" posts speak for themselves.

I'd also submit that Aretha Franklin was a great vocal artist and deserves more respect than your silly moniker shows.   What are you,  twelve?

“BLM Protesters horribly harass elderly Pittsburgh diners, scaring them with loud taunts while taking their food right off their plate,” the president wrote.

“These Anarchists, not protesters, are Biden voters, but he has no control and nothing to say. Disgraceful. Never seen anything like it. Thugs!




Larry wants to know -

How do we know they were BLM?

My guess is Larry, like most people with half a brain,  knows that some protestors at any demonstration for any cause will behave badly.   And has moved on to actual issues of justice and what the 99% of peaceful demonstrators are trying to communicate to America.  How about you?

I was just going to post this...

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/16/holocaust-us-adults-study

How can this be?   

In 1964 the History of Western Civilization course had been required in virtually every American university, but the requirement had almost vanished by 2010. Some universities kept the course for students to take voluntarily — but increasing numbers replaced it entirely with a World Civilization course. Three times as many students take the College Board’s World History Advanced Placement examination as take European History. Our students never have the chance to learn about the sequence linking Athens and Jerusalem to America, the continuous history from Plato to NATO.

Aside from all the Left scapegoating that's the rest of that article,  I agree that history and civics have been neglected from primary grades on.

White Supremacists are committing acts of violence and marching literally under Trump flags, but Donald has nothing to say about that (while actually very much having control over what is happening.)

But kiidcarter8 is outraged that some BLM folks dared take food off of someone plate!

1.  All info on phones is backed up on Government Servers (unlike, say, the Whatsapp exchanges being conducted by certain people int eh Trump Admin)
2.  Wiping phones before returning them to service is totally routine.

and 3.  The Congresspeople raising this as a story know the above two points perfectly well, but also know that some Americans are easy marks who will take their stupid conspiracy theories and run with them.

"Led by the nose" might be an appropriately used term here.

Countries that do a good job teaching History and Civics do not have organizations like our current republican party. They understand the dangers of letting a nexus of power and crime that feeds on racism, cultism, lies, and self-destruction persist and grow strong. The republican cycle of repression, grifting, collapse, and famine can only be stopped by destroying fascist platforms where ever they are found.

If we survive trump, hopefully we can inoculate ourselves against future similar infections.

Coal is dead. Time to cut off the necrotic limb before it dooms the whole organism.

In the news:

The crazy conspiracy-mongering HHS spokesman is taking a medical leave of absence after his rant accusing CDC scientists of sedition and warning that the Left will rise up in violent revolts around and after the election was widely panned as dangerous and irresponsible.

Also in the news:

The Attorney General is saying the same kind of crazy shit, and he still has a job:
