Re: Ronapalooza 2020

I clicked on the PBS News Hour video link above and am really enjoying the military band which is playing. I’ll stop listening when they’re done.

Re: Trump-Pence 2020

I am terrified that if we get a vaccine or a cure before the election, Trump will rebound. As much as I want a vaccine, I do not want a vaccine. Americans have a pitiful ability to remember anything from more than about 2 days ago. I can pretty much guarantee that there will not be a vaccine availa...

Re: Opening up is hard to do.

I saw today that Costco is cutting back on their senior hours starting the week of July 12. Instead of 9am-10am Monday thru Friday, it will be 9am-10am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I can live with that.

Re: Russia paying bounties on US deaths

Forget the pee tape. I've had the same hunch about this since 2015: it's the money. Not only is Trump leveraged up to his eyeballs in debt from all over the place, but remember Don Jr.'s remark ages ago about "we get all the money we need from Russia"? A whole lot of his condo units get sold for su...

Re: Russia paying bounties on US deaths

So all of this leads to two questions: 1) Is the pee tape the least damaging piece of blackmail material that Putin has on Trump, or the most damaging? 2) Did Putin share the tapes with Erdogan, or does Erdogan have blackmail material of his own? After 3 years in office, it's possible that Putin ha...

Re: 2020 GOP Rattled by Trump

Trump won't drop out. His ego won't let him. He doesn't want that to be his legacy. Trump is in it for the adoration and power. He's not going to give that up. As long as he is President, he can have his ego rallies and chat whenever he wants to other world leaders and snap his fingers and watch the...
