Re: The Retail Politics: 2020 Presidential

From what I've read so far, Bernie said he didn't and Liz said he did. While this bothers me I also consider that there was a context that we don't know and which both of them may have interpreted differently. And meanwhile we have a president who openly commits crimes and will be supported by his ...

Re: SENATE: impeachment trial.

So, anyone up for an over/under thread regarding how many days it will take for the Senate to acquit Trump? My take is they will dispose of this little inconvenience in fairly short order. After all, they have a long list of unqualified right wing nut jobs to appoint to federal courts. We can't sto...

I have sympathy for incel men who desire a sexual partner but are unable to find one.

I 'm kind of surprised they don't have websites/styes of their own, but I seriously doubt they can get along with each other long enough or well enough to do anything in concert.

This morning on CNN, Esper repeatedly used the words "exquisite intelligence." Looks like "imminent threat" is last week's news. Esper seems pretty weak and has no inclination to do or say anything contrary to the Trump propaganda. I don't trust a word he says. “Exquisite” is an inappropriate word,...

I'm willing to blame Trump for a lot of things, but the Iranians are definitely to blame for the shoot-down.
I agree 100 percent, but I do add a caveat: Those people would still be alive if Individual-1 hadn't shown non-leadership and poor decision making based on bad advice from poor advisers.
