Re: Voter Suppresion - Georgia

Wrong Herr Mengele. Giant lines in majority donk run precincts on the 1st couple of days of 3 weeks of early voting doesn't equal voter suppression.

Re: POTUS Debate #2 10/15, 9 PM ECB

Bottom line is that any debate should include capability to shut off one candidate while the other is talking. When the moderator asks one candidate a question that candidate should be allowed to answer without the other one interrupting. I think virtual would be great because it would facilitate t...

No, no, no. Haven't you been paying attention? Her confirmation will be the end of the Republic!
oops. my mistake.
Nah, the Republic ended in 2016 - Obama said so. We're in the post-Republic period now. Might even have a catchier name than "post-Republic". Armageddon?

The decision didn’t need to be made last week. They could have waited until today or even tomorrow (TV is plenty capable of that).

I like how they say there at least 5 people charged, but then go on to name 6 people. I guess technically correct, but why not just complete the math and say there were at least 6 people charged?

Yeah, because Biden wanted to do a ‘virtual’ debate, not a real one.

What a pussy.
Also - it wouldn't be the first POTUS debate done virtually.
