U.S. Politics Discussion

Recommended Posts

She’s spoken up on multiple occasions but she was always cautious because of course she doesn’t want to invite all the scrutiny and mud on her name. #MeToo and #Time’sUp and all em didn’t give her a chance and I’m sure the thought of seeing this man become president was enough for her to finally say “*Censored* it” and go full throttle. The Larry King tape with her mother was a haymaker in my opinion but unfortunately because of the anonymity her mom used they’re gonna brush it off.  This is not a time to bend and break principles because Joe is a lame ass Democrat. When it was Kavanaugh, Democrats didn’t hesitate but because it’s Biden, now they’re playing it safe. If this was Bernie I would be on his ass too, and best believe the DNC wouldn’t be trying to bury this either. The weird whataboutism from centrist Dems is gross too. “Okay Biden has ONE accusation, Trump has 30! Which is worse?!” like that’s how low the bar is now. They’re both probable rapists but we gotta pick the one who raped less? Y’all can have that, I’m not voting for either of them. I held my nose with Hillary, held my nose for Abrams, but I can’t do this shit. 

Also I really hate the false dichotomy everyone keeps pushing and the nerve of centrist/corporate Dems to screw over the populist candidate, prop up a rapist corpse and then shame people into voting for him. “I know you may not agree with him on anything, but it’s either him or Trump. That’s all you got.” Kiss my ass. I can’t think of a better time to finally legitimize a third party.

Biden's actually encouraged the investigation and says he has nothing to hide. There's also the theory that if he really is guilty or tried to bury anything, then the Reps would uncover that and use that to their advantage.

He encourages an investigation short of the sealed Delaware files. Methinks there’s something damning in there.

oo, something his supporters apparently don't know, and Republicans aren't trying to unseal or bring up, as far as I know.

Like we could have just had Bernie who just want everyone to be equal. He legit wants the best for people and has since the 1970's.

Equality of opportunity or equality of outcome?

I love it when Republicans act as if Democratic-led states take more money than they put in, while they contribute more when that's the opposite. McConnell is so full of shit, as are many of his colleagues, and I wish the voters were savvy enough to do their own research.

More reason the federal government shouldn't be as big and in charge of nearly as much as they currently are.  Then states could keep more of their own money.

And people in states like Kentucky can live in squalor just because of conservative views on economy. Makes sense.

Then I wonder why people in blue states move to red ones in mass numbers and not the other way around?

Chicago, NYC, LA, and SF are huge cities that aren't fun to live in for many people while red states are more rural. Plus, housing is cheaper in red states, no matter how incompetent the red leaders are. Wonder how many of the people who move to red states are conservatives though, and brainwashed into things like believing McConnell and Trump's lies.

So the leaders are so incompetent that housing is cheaper.  Meanwhile, the competent leaders are the ones skyrocketing taxes making people leave.  Am I getting this right?

Breonna Taylor, a 26 year old paramedic, was gunned down by police while doing a no-knock search warrant on her residence.  Her boyfriend, thinking the police were burglars, open fire on them and is now facing attempted murder for shooting a police officer.

This is ridiculous and another reason no-knock warrants should have never been a thing to begin with.

Might I add that the police were in plain clothes when executing this warrant.

Even a pandemic isn't going to stop cops from killing Black people for no reason while doing nothing to armed white protesters breathing in their face. Jeez. Even an ex-cop and his son killed a Black man who was jogging for no reason.

No surprise here, some cops let their ego get boosted once they get that badge & gun.
