 If I put my myself in your shoes I can totally relate.Now if you would put on my shoes.  HRC or Change.

I think based on actual performance we can safely conclude that Trump was the worse choice there.

Joe is a man at the end of his career who fell into a chance to achieve his dream of being POTUS. Now he is giving it his all to become one who made a real difference in policy. He is reaching for the sky as much as he can with his agenda. It is a nearly impossible task with the cards he has been dealt, but I think that most likely he feels he has little to lose at this point. I can not even begin to predict what the next cycle will bring. It looks more and more like a possible rematch. God help America.

I don't understand why this idea is even being considered when the poor old USA can not even afford universal healthcare. US national politics is very irrational from my point of view.

Well, we have to spend the money on endless wars and huge tax breaks for the zillionaires. 

Spending that money on something as foolish and useless as people's health would just be silly and wasteful (we really need a sarcasm font on here).

And US politics is actually very rational.
The GOP wants to dismantle all of the social safety nets and silly 'rules' that restrict rich people from doing what ever they want to whomever they want in order to become more rich & powerful.
Of course, they want to take away the individual rights of the 'little people' to do it.
They've been trying to do this since the 50s and have been succeeding at it since Reagan in the 80s.
They want to go back to the 'Gilded Age' of the late 19th century or the 'boom' days of the 1920s. 
You know, the times right before the economy crashed.

The part of the preamble to the Constitution that says 'promote the general welfare' is not something they think is important.

Some people are more deserving of equal protection than others. After all, they paid for it with their taxes, and this is a capitalist society. At least that’s how I think the thinking goes. Kind of like how more money can buy better justice in criminal and civil cases

Trump, Trump will be the republican ticket for President and Vice President. And they will be elected.

Which is why I've come to believe that Covid, Climate Change and Brent are pointless concerns in the short term. The R's are as likely to take the House in 2022 as not, and that's being optimistic. With Manchin and Sinema they already have the Senate. Bidens numbers are tanking. As absurd as Trump is he is not a forgotten person. Far from it, as we've seen R after R come kneel and kiss his ring to assure their reelections. With an R House and Senate who can believe a Democratic Presidential win wouldn't stand a large chance of not being certified? I can also see these pathetic and weak kneed Democrats, for the sake of the nation, just tossing in the towel in the face of the chaos to follow.

Which ring would that be?  The one on his finger, or the poop sphincter?  Or perhaps both.  I'm pretty sure Lindsey Graham and Kevin McCarthy add a little tongue action as well.

It's just crazy, right? But as baffling and unbelievable as it all is, it's also all true. Same as with the Democrats working so hard to defeat each other and the party from seeming solid and successful. As I've pointed out before, it could be the shit is already hitting the fan, it's just that the blades are turning too slow for most people to see.

What is up with this “let’s go Brandon” stuff?

Apparently at some Big Sporting Event, while the commentator was discussing the nuances of the game the crowd started chanting "Fuck Joe Biden" quite audibly in the background.

The commentator then quoted the crowd as saying "let's go Brandon!" and people have been using the two as interchangeable.

I got all this second or third hand, so take it for what it's worth.

If true, that is hilarious.  If not, the lefties will set us straight.

OMG!  I just Googled it and it IS true.  (Can we say “let’s go Brandon” on this forum?)

And have enough flags to sink your boat.

Then hide behind the flag for a corrupt, hate filled agenda.

(above)"Teddy Daniels, who is running for Congress in Pennsylvania, speaks at a pro-police rally last year. He was at the US Capitol on 6 January. Four officers lost their lives..

Of the thousands of diehard Trump supporters who gathered in Washington on 6 January, some are now beginning to emerge as Republican candidates for national and local office."

It seems as if the law, the courts and common sense run slower than some politicians.
