Not really . . . they will just say "Orange Man Bad" and move about on their hypocritical day, ignoring they ever said anything about Trumps record.

Hypocrisy is exactly the point. I’ve never heard Biden accuse those who did serve of cowardice. I’ve never heard Biden claim to be the biggest and best supporter of the military or the most knowledgeable  person alive on military matters. Ive never heard Biden say he felt like a great soldier or refer to his personal Vietnam. 
 

I have nothing against anyone who dodged the draft per se, but Trump sure as hell deserves the criticism for it in light of everything else he’s ever publicly said about the military to advance his political career.

I can’t see much hope for the USA when people are so blinded by hatred and fear. 
I would say that as a generalisation most people I know see Americans as being very fearful people. More so than you’re average nation. Trump has tapped into that fear and is exploiting it. 

The one good thing I will say is he has drawn the bigotry out into the open. All those middle aged white men who feel marginalised because they see the world as transactional and that if a woman or minority gets the same rights as them, they have somehow “lost” some of their masculinity and rights.

For the election, I think it’s going to be close. Look at the percentage of posters here that are now clearly in the Trump camp.

Anti-Hilliary, anti-Biden before there was a Biden then anti-Biden. Sure, thats what it is.

"The top communications official at the powerful cabinet department in charge of combating the coronavirus made outlandish and false accusations on Sunday that career government scientists were engaging in “sedition” in their handling of the pandemic and that left-wing hit squads were preparing for armed insurrection after the election.

Michael R. Caputo, the assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, accused the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of harboring a “resistance unit” determined to undermine President Trump, even if that opposition bolsters the Covid-19 death toll.

Mr. Caputo, who has faced intense criticism for leading efforts to warp C.D.C. weekly bulletins to fit Mr. Trump’s pandemic narrative, suggested that he personally could be in danger from opponents of the administration. “If you carry guns, buy ammunition, ladies and gentlemen, because it’s going to be hard to get,” he urged his followers.

He went further, saying his physical health was in question, and his “mental health has definitely failed.

Your man/boy trump promised to hire only the best and there it is!

You just can't make this shit up; Trump campaign plays CCR's "Fortunate Son" at a rally:

https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/9447614/trump-played-ccr-fortunate-son-rally-reactions

No one in that campaign can hear lyrics???

ROTFLMAO!!!

It on take-off roll now:

Trump ad asks people to support the troops. But it uses a picture of Russian jets.

“That’s definitely a MiG-29,” said Pierre Sprey, who helped design both the F-16 and A-10 planes for the U.S. Air Force. “I’m glad to see it’s supporting our troops.”

Trump likes to recognize and support the troops that support him.

"Last October, Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fla.) tweeted a picture of the Russian battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy with the comment: “Happy birthday to the US Navy. "

Pot meet kettle....

Joe Biden’s Draft Record Looks a Lot Like Donald Trump’s. Do Democrats Care?

Just a few months before President Donald Trump received his now-infamous diagnosis of “bone spurs in the heels,” former high school football star Biden got the same 1-Y draft deferment for “asthma as a teenager.” It was one of five deferments Biden received (the same number as notorious GOP “draft dodger” Dick Cheney) and allowed him to avoid being drafted at the height of the war. 

Kettle meet airdvr:

"Increased asthma among Olympic athletes seem be due to a multitude of factors including, daily training and frequent competitions of high intensity and during with increased ventilation, which leads to epithelial damage and bronchial hyper-responsiveness  and inflammation that leads to asthma symptoms.

Because asthma is the most common chronic disease in Olympic athletes, it is important that the present available treatment according to international guidelines enables those with asthma to compete on an equal level and with equal success as other healthy athletes.

Former Olympians with asthma, are Justine Henin who captured the gold in Athens in 2004, US swimmer Tom Dolan who won gold in Atlanta in 1996 and in 2016 US swimmer Kelsi Worrell who competed in Rio."

This is no more than a quick lift from Alan Khadavi. MD. The idea is that asthma is not one big debilitating thing. Maybe a guy can do civilian athletic activities but still not pass a military medical exam.

I know. Due to bias you will never vote Democrat as you’ll go out of your way to see the issues. Whether you vote for Trump or not you will defend and continue to defend him to the bitter end. I get the feeling your “I’m not voting Trump” is simply leaving a back door open if in the future his behaviour comes back to bite him, Trump who...?

I will not vote for, or put my energy into Biden.

He's the wrong choice.

Even Kamala knows it, and said so - she called it the Harris Administration.

I won't vote for them and their schemes.

Do you want a mental defective who will listen to the experts he surrounds himself with, or a mental defective who thinks he knows more and is more intelligent than anyone else and will do what his gut tells him, regardless of what his experts advise?

 

Its not even a trick question. 


Both choices suck. One is fucking stupid.

All while both sides are proclaiming the United States the best nation to ever have been created....

Caputo has gone on leave and his deputy has quit. Only the best people.

Hi folks,

IMO another win for the people:  'Pennsylvania's Supreme Court extended the due date for mail ballots in the November election, a decision that will likely result in more votes being counted in the state'

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/17/pennsylvania-mail-ballot-deadline-extended-417044

Back in the 50's, the basement of my parents' house was a voting location.  They were not req'd to have the results in within any 24-hr period.  When they got things finished ( usually within ~48-hrs ), they reported the results.  I can still remember sitting there watching them count, argue, etc, over the ballots.

Hi folks ( again ),

And some more info:  'This guy has an unshakable base, but he has a pretty low ceiling.' *

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/16/trump-election-battleground-map-412726

Let's hope it stays as is & does not improve for him.

YMMV

Jerry Baumchen

*  an unshakable base  This is the part that I cannot get a grasp on.  Joe Biden was never my first choice; but, much better than our current idiot.

Judge blocks Michigan's ban on transporting voters to polls

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/judge-blocks-michigan-s-ban-transporting-voters-polls-n1240432

In Michigan, it is a misdemeanor to hire drivers to take voters to polling places unless they physically cannot walk. Because of the ban, Michigan was the only state in which ride-hailing company Uber did not offer discounted rides to the polls on Election Day in November 2018, according to the lawsuit.

[facepalm]

So it seems Trump's scam to make the drug industry part of his re-election campaign, didn't work out:

A Deal on Drug Prices Undone by White House Insistence on ‘Trump Cards’

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/18/us/politics/trump-drug-prices.html

That would be so transparent you'd have to be an imbecile not to see through it.

 

But perfect for his "base".
