Re: Removal Of The Racists

The Democrat party is STILL the party of slavery. Specifically, through government dependence.

Joe Biden claims Trump the first ever racist President

We've had racists and they've existed, they've tried to get elected president, but he's the first one that has https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/biden-says-trump-first-racist-u-s-president-n1234657 Setting aside the issue of whether Trump is a racist (I don't think he is), apparently Jo...

Re: Governor Whitmer strengthens Executive Order on masks

Look who's acting like a leader? The Big Gretch in today's New York Times. She sounds like someone who cares about the economy. So much more that many Red States that are on fire with COVID spread. Why do you keep saying that RED states are on fire with Covid? What about California? When are people...

Re: Governor Whitmer strengthens Executive Order on masks

Don't think an increase of 18% over the normal death rate is a pandemic. It's hype. I think 140,000 deaths in 4 months is a pandemic.... it's well beyond "normal"... The way I read it was if 100 a month passes away in County X in a four month period, then 118 would passed away in this period. I'm n...

Re: I'm ready to predict the outcome of the 2020 election.

Considering what you are predicting now (without a shred of evidence) I’d say it’s better to be lucky than good. So you think that in 2016 that I got "lucky" as opposed to simply being "right"? I gave a ton of analysis in here in 2016 leading up to the election and most of it ended up being spot-on...

Re: Governor Whitmer strengthens Executive Order on masks

Whether the legislature would go along with her isn't the point. Emergency powers don't last forever. Just because we're still in the middle of a pandemic doesn't necessarily mean that time is of the essence in everything she's doing. Masks - for example - the government has had PLENTY of time to pr...

Re: I'm ready to predict the outcome of the 2020 election.

There are three 269-269 outcomes that I feel are possible. Scenario #1 has Biden flipping AZ, MI, and WI with Trump holding on to FL, GA, NC, NE-2, OH, PA, and TX. Scenario #2 has Biden flipping AZ, FL, and NE-2 and Trump flipping NH while holding on to GA, MI, NC, OH, PA, TX, and WI Scenario #3 ha...

So WHEN IN THE HELL are we going to go back to the way laws are SUPPOSED to be passed? A governor's powers aren't limitless and endless.

Re: I'm ready to predict the outcome of the 2020 election.

Keep clinging to your polls, RT. And so I will. Being within the margin of error on 49 out of 50 is pretty good... If simply being within the margin of error on 49/50 is pretty good, then how would you classify being CORRECT on 48/50? That was my record in 2016. Can you point to any other source or...

Re: I'm ready to predict the outcome of the 2020 election.

Interesting prediction. Can you lay out your state by state analysis? 49/50 from 2016 remain the same. Florida flips to (D). I think that the stock market and economy will be in full-blown recovery mode right around election time for one reason - a VACCINE. And that I think favors Trump big-time. H...

bmw, how about a bet? I'll say Biden wins. $100 to be donated by the loser to the (non-political) charity of the winners choice. We're on our own honor as far as payment. Cool? I don't do friendly Trump money bets any more. That last one I did remains unpaid - I wagered a distant family member $100...

That's how I see the map if Biden does win. I don't think the swing states will split much - either Trump narrowly wins most of them or Biden wins virtually all of them.

Re: Masks Now Mandatory In Stores

There's no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you're in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it's not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And often, there are unintended con...
