Re: On a Personal Level--Coronavirus COVID-19 Cancellations, etc.

Hey NMgirl - Congratulations! I live on the other side of the Bay. From my perspective, you might be safe making that trip. For better or worse, the 14-day quarantine is just an advisory. It's not enforced. For the most part, folks around here are being fairly safe, at least better than other parts ...

Re: Rudy Giuliani

Thanks for the clip. Watched the movie last night and thoroughly enjoyed it (admittedly I'm a sucker for that kinda humor, it's not everyone's taste.) That actress steals the show, no doubt. Oscar-worthy but she won't get it. Some of the unwitting participants are quite sympathetic. Kinda a shame th...

Does Pence have a fly on his head?
Edit: It's gone, maybe it flew off. I guess even a fly has no interest in that big steaming pile of bullshit.

It's absolutely bizarre how these fires have so quickly been politicized, even faster than they have been burning.

Rittenhouse is gonna walk, the cop who shot Blake is gonna walk, and Blake's gonna roll into the pen and get Covid. At each step, there will be riots and the process will repeat itself.

Re: Who Should Be Joe Biden's Vice Presidential Pick? - With New Poll

I am not a fan of Kamala Harris. At all. She has been deliberately groomed by the California Democratic Big Machine and appointed to every job she's held. She married into the Hollywood cabal. Gavin Newsom came from the same assembly line, built by the likes of the Feinsteins, Willie and Jerry Brown...

Not so inspiring for me. A bunch of white kids chanting "BLM" at their convenience with hardly a BL in the audience? Seems to me, BL's should be more than a prop. I like my politicians boring and smart. I support political advancement. This is cheap political theater. Theater is merely a m...
