    Lex, you sound like Abbey Hoffman. Is it 1968?

    Portland has been out of control for years, not six weeks. It has been non-functioning for residents; closed streets, assaults on unbelievers. Didn’t a reporter suffer brain damage when he was hit in the head with a concrete milkshake…on a public street, in broad daylight, in front of law enforcement officers, during a peaceful protest?  Hasn’t the mayor directed law enforcement to stand down during the continuing episodes of violence and property damage?

    Perhaps you think federal property should be sacrificed to the mob?  Perhaps you agree with AOC that the guy with the hammer in Portland was looking for bread to feed his family?  Perhaps you think DiBlasio nailed it when he assured N.Y.’ers that the murder of children on the streets in daylight is attributable to COVID-19…the Chinese did it?  Perhaps you found the interview with the father and grandmother of the dead one year old unpersuasive?  Perhaps you feel the interview of the mother of the dead eight year old in Atlanta is easily dismissed?  Perhaps you think the losses suffered by local businesses is immaterial?  Perhaps you feel screwed now that you had to cancel plans for your summer sojourn to CHOP?

    Good luck trying to win the day with that Trump narrative. The pictures, the palpable heartache of the victims…from Portland, from Minneapolis, from Atlanta, from NY, from D.C., from Seattle don’t lie.

    With the FL performance on virus reporting, can we count on them to get the scores right?

    I think they are mistaken as to what they are “accomplishing”?  They feel they are in the forefront of an anti Orange movement/tsunami.  I think they are misunderstanding their audience, isolating themselves from the society they seek to change & galvanizing their political opposition. AKA dead men walking.

    To this point, I understand there may be interest in recalling the Seattle mayor?  I understand Minneapolis “cop free” parks are so non functioning that the locals are requesting that city officials reduce the footprint?

    Memory may be failing, but didn’t the Orange One try to do an immigration deal to benefit DACA kids; over a million?  He wanted to force a broader deal that would included an end to chain migration among other things.  The political opposition turned him down for the wrong reasons.  Trump then tried to close down the DACA program for leverage to make a deal.  He lost in court.

    I don’t see this as any change at all.  The program is still dead because a political deal isn’t to be made between now and November.  Republicans think they can carry the day with bs about an executive order.  Democrats think they will carry the day through continuing inaction.  DACA recipients remain hosed in the roll of political football.

    Once again a wonderful outcome is achieved by the folks who are self enriching in DC.

    Ahhh, I am starting to see how the pieces fit together.

    Those late night fence climbing outings at the club to get your laps in…just part of you pt?

    How many comrades in your cell?  Do you use camo “S” class sedans for your missions?

    Do people pay to go to an NBA or NFL game hoping a political rally will break out?  Do they show up at a political rally hoping the candidate will dribble a basketball or toss a football?

    Yes, son; that’s what the polling said earlier this week…when the Fox sample was taken…before the incidents I noted were on the record?

    Fox is now posing the question, “how far left will Biden have to go?”  Gee, the old man was out front on this one!

    Roscoe, you amuse me. I too have seen a couple stories I the last several days that suggest to me that you’re as right here as the polls were in 2016.

    First, Biden endorsed an Obama era regulatory framework that gives the Feds primacy in local zoning nationally. Second two street killings of children, one in N. Y. & one in Atlanta. Third, when Pelosi was asked about the trashing of the Columbus statue in her hometown of Baltimore, she chose not to criticize the lawless vandals.

    It is my opinion that suburban soccer moms are as committed to NIMBY as the folks in Nantucket or Malibu.  They don’t choose to live and raise families in urban blight. The 2018 democratic coalition that influenced this demographic over healthcare access will be permanently fractured/inoperative when suburbanites notice Biden’s support for Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. The regulations permit the Feds to deny HUD funds if the locals refuse to bring the best of our urban blights to their communities.

    Roscoe, Biden will lose the voting members of the 2018 coalition solely because he has chosen to chase the Sanders base; a “voting block” that proved once again in the primaries that they don’t vote.

    The Orange One has his base locked. He can work the margins. Say goodnight to the senile one…and Ginsburg as well.

    Interesting that Muir didn’t take this approach to reducing the budget.  Save some money, reduce transmission risk, good for them.

    GPN, throw in the towel…never! 😎

    I just like to be prepared. My balance sheet is pristine. My wine cellar must also meet that standard.

    For me, it is difficult to evaluate the decisions to terminate individual programs without an understanding of the overall investment decisions.  What funding was maintained?

    How much was Shaw asked to contribute, if he was asked at all?  How much did Muir contribute?  If they are drawing upper quartile salaries, does performance justify those compensation packages…or are their compensation programs seen as their personal reparations benefit?  We have been advised by Muir himself that he has suffered greatly because of white privilege. How many administrative positions were rif’ed in the continuing sports?

    Pardon my personal prejudice, but I have little confidence that Muir got this right.

    [quote quote=1169]…I guess Trump… is a proponent of States Rights over human rights. Perhaps he even has a white hood in a closet at Trump Towers.[/quote]

    Now tarring him with the sins of the father?  That seems lazy.  With the generational attitude changes during our lifetimes, I imagine you and I could make an argument that our parents were racists; certainly by woke standards.  That doesn’t mean that we are…unless our name is Trump?  Further, I doubt the Orange One could have worked effectively with the trades in N.Y. if he was an overt racist?

    And please consider all this crap in context.  Does it strike you that this narrative is eerily similar to the James Byrd advertisements that were run in the 2000 election cycle? Bush was smeared because he opposed hate crime legislation in Texas as governor.  He was of the opinion that Texas didn’t need said “tougher” legislation.  His position is perhaps plausible as two of the Byrd defendants received the needle, the other a life sentence.  But the NAACP ran the Bush is racist campaign during the election cycle because of his opinion on that legislation.  Perhaps a leap there. All this as Biden declares, “If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black!”  Tell me, who’s making the overtly racist appeal here?  And why during an election cycle?

    [quote quote=1162]February 17 article Einstein. The Dark Ages of Covid Jung. Now we all should know better Madame Curie.[/quote]

    T.C., am I now to believe anything said re Covid prior to February 17 is exempt from analysis/criticism?  Faucci sí, the Orange One, no?  I think I’ve got it now, the blatant hypocrisy of a double standard in the bashing of Trump is every citizens sober obligation.  That’s probably why it’s appropriate to consider him disqualified because of his prior acts, “…lies, racism, denigrating the disabled, denigrating women, cheating on his wife with a hooker/porno star.”  A standard neither you or I would meet.

    It’s your choice T.C.  It’s okay to vote Biden.  It’s not a matter of right or wrong.  All I can do is wish you good luck with it.  But don’t try to explain/justify personal prejudice.

    I’ll be interested in T.C.’s thoughts on this Fauci pronouncement. Seems to directly contradict policy pronouncements from state & local officials.

    I know the Orange One is to blame. T.C. has recently castigated him for following Faucci’s advice.  Thanks T.C.  I heard it here first!
