  1. By the way, this debate lineup is somewhat disadvantageous to Biden. He won't be on the same stage with Warren and Bernie, and won't be able to distinguish himself on healthcare, which is what would help him gain traction imo. He will be able to contrast on immigration with Castro though, which could help with the moderate/centrist/conservative lane. Luckily, there won't be any "raise your hand" questions this round.
  2. There was both collusion and obstruction. It’s in the report. The problem is that “collusion” isn’t an actual crime, and conspiracy to commit treason against the United States requires you to prove intent which is next to impossible in court.
  3. “Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports new OC Arthur Smith said he intends to "ride" contract-year RB Derrick Henry this season.”
  4. “The campaign wrote a check for just over $5,300 on June 28 to Sheehan Associates for "strategic consulting" services, according to the Biden team's second-quarter Federal Election Commission filing. The firm is run by Michael Sheehan, who helped with Clinton's debate and speech preparations during his two White House bids and Obama ahead of his 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention, which helped launch him to national prominence. "Michael has coached more Presidents, Vice Presidents, First Ladies, Cabinet Secretaries, Governors, Mayors and Members of Congress than anyone else in the country," the Sheehan Associates website says.”
  5. https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/2020-democratic-candidate-poll/h_409c20aa106ed82835db895146571af9?utm_term=image&utm_content=2019-07-16T21%3A50%3A04&utm_source=twCNNp&utm_medium=social "Back in 2016, voters not affiliated with any party (independents) gave Bernie Sanders a big New Hampshire primary victory. The 40% of unaffiliated voters supported Sanders by a 72% to 27% margin over Hillary Clinton. This turned a close race among Democrats (a 50% to 49% Clinton advantage) into a blowout, giving Sanders a more than 20-point win overall." "This year, it's a very different game. Sanders still does better with unaffiliated voters (22%) than registered Democrats (15%). It's Biden, however, who does best among unaffiliated voters at 29%. It's another example of how Biden is eating into Sanders' support." "For now, Biden's the one who can rightfully claim that he is winning over voters who weren't Democratic primary voters four years ago. They either sat out entirely or voted in the Republican primary."
  6. Sounds like maybe they're the ones that need to leave if they hate America so much then?
  7. Why yes it is! Hillary would have done well to have taken a page from that playbook.
  8. Truth. So glad so see a Democrat actually talking about this reality.
  9. It’s not actually dishonest though. You can say it doesn’t thoroughly lay out the full picture, but doesn’t the replacement with Medicare for All go without saying?
  10. Ok.....but how is what he said false or misleading? It does take away the current Medicare system, and then subsequently replaces it. I don’t think it’s “slimy”, the uncertainty is legitimately concerning for older people.
  11. How is that misleading???? You literally just said yesterday that the whole system would change under a “Medicare for All” plan. (Meaning it would all be one system, taken care of at the point of service, and removing insurance companies as a player at all), rather than the current Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare structure.
  12. This is about a lot more than illegal immigration. The staunch stance against undocumented immigration to the point of cruelty and family separation is birthed out of fear and racism, which is also manifested in many other areas of this administration, including the Muslim ban and hateful speech to minorities including African Americans (see Charlottesville and the blind support of police officers in all situations, who have committed crimes against black people due to race).
  13. So America? Or is Mexico a "safe" country now?
  14. No, but American voters are going to tell you all what you can and can't do come November of 2020.
  15. It's a historical moment for sure, just a bad one in this case because we've gotten nothing in return. They've stopped launching test rockets because they've already successfully built a nuclear warhead and ballistic missiles to carry them.
  16. There are plenty of people out there who are just rotten to the core, but I believe that some folks would be better served with a leader who discourages their baser instincts and provides a message of inclusion and optimism rather than fear and a promise to return to the distant past and rather than one who foments division and hatred.
  17. Well fear also plays a factor for a lot of otherwise "decent" people, and human nature is such that fear devolves into hate unfortunately. As Yoda would say: "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering" Fear can often be a biproduct of lack of critical thinking skills and lack of education. And what Trump and this Republican Party is doing, is weaponizing fear for political gain and power.
  18. Yeah, not sure we needed a study to prove this out but there is one!
