  1. Dang. The filtered vs. non filtered words in here are hard to predict. Does't seem to like KJV words. Sub, "harlot."
  2. Nah. Behaving as expected for liberals. Disagreement politically = a *****. Dressing and acting like an actual *****? To be defended. If that isn't sexism, I don't know what is.
  3. Wow. Pick a defense. So far, you weren't being sexist but ... were because she deserves it? Okay.
  4. But you didn't call her a scum ball, did you? That is gender neutral. You inferred a sexual relationship. Give it up. The post was sexist.
  5. Wow. Conservative woman endorses other conservative women running for office. HORRORS!
  6. Not at all surprising, and I can respect that. I think a game changer in the election because the objection for so many to Trump is him, personally. Lots (like me) will be holding our noses to vote for Biden. This election will most definitely NOT be a mandate on policy.
  7. Like her a lot. Don't wish anyone ill, but dang I'd love to be casting my fvote or her above the two clowns we currently have.
  8. We need a better eyeball emoticon in here. Nice try at deflection, though. You were addressing her, not him initially. I've worked for plenty of a-holes without sleeping with them. Have you not?
  9. Would you have referred to a male aide in those terms?
  10. That is what I was thinking. Pence not a particularly charismatic figure, so I'm thinking they might choose someone else. Wonder who?
  11. Unless the electoral college decides differently maybe?
  12. So, what happens if the POTUS is critically ill or dies before the election but after the convention. Is the VP automatically the candidate, or ???
  13. $10M to spout that crap? Oh brother.
  14. OMG. One of my friends is supervising her 5th grade grandson's virtual schooling this week. She is doing a play by play on facebook of what she calls the "5th grade shenanigans," she is observing and I am literally crying laughing. It is so different from the type of homeschooling I did, but especially all the distractions. First class of the day and already they've had a smoke alarm go off in one kid's house, "what page are we on?" asked about ten times, kids mugging with pencils and other objects up their noses, and the teacher having to correct multiple students for (mild) profanity and remind twice that many to mute their microphones when they aren't asking a question or responding to a question. Also had to reboot the laptop twice. Posted a picture of her grandson just staring at the screen like he wants to die. Poor guy. LOL
  15. Not sure which guy you are talking about. The tweet I saw was responding to someone who had written about colonialism and mixed race adoptions. Some journalist I never heard of.
  16. I've been reading suggestions, albeit not from anyone I consider of consequence, that she be attacked for everything from her religious beliefs, to investigating her Haitian adoptions, to questioning how she can be both a good mother and a Supreme Court Judge. Pretty awful, and I hope that cooler heads prevail among the senate Democrats. Sexism, racism, and religious bigotry would not be good looks for the Democrats so close to an election particularly. Her writings and judgements are fair game.
  17. Didn't most or all of them state that they were sleeping and were awakened by the gunshots? (Didn't look it up again, but that is my recollection.). Again, not that it seems to matter except as a defense for Walker (the boyfriend) for firing the first shot. A tragic set of circumstances, but not a crime. It would sure have been better all around if the officers had been wearing their body cameras, and since Taylor wasn't really the main target suspect, they executed the warrant during the day when everyone was awake. We have had a number of cases here where the body cameras exonerated officers. Seems like their union would insist on them.
  18. Opportunity to work at home is such a benefit of value. Among other issues, it gives most people several (unpaid) hours back onto their lives. When my husband returned to work after his brain injury, but before he was cleared to drive again, I was spending about four hours a day transporting him not including accidents on NE 820 (every danged day, practically). Apart from those awful days, he was spending (depending on office location because they moved a few times over his career) about two or three hours a day commuting. Did I mention that this is unpaid time? While he was salaried, when you convert that to hourly rate, that is a lot of money but costs the company nothing.
  19. I don’t personally know anyone who has gotten the virus, but know of several who got it at a particular outdoor beer garden in Dallas. At different times with different groups.
  20. My understanding is that he said he didn't hear it. Another neighbor, who was awake at the time, did hear them announce. If awakened suddenly by a bunch of pounding and shouting, I can't say I would understand what was going on immediately. (Unlikely, in fact. I'm a sound sleeper.) Boyfriend didn't do wrong either. Not that this signifies anything since, as I understand it, the warrant as written was no knock. There may have been issues with the warrant itself, but that isn't the doing of these officers. This appears to be a civil not criminal matter and the family has already accepted their $12M from the city as well as agreement to certain policy changes.
  21. Today a federal district judged ruled in favor of the Democrats to block Texas's elimination of straight ticket voting. Evidently on the premise that minority voters aren't smart enough to be able to read and vote individually on each race, which I find a rather insulting argument. Also that it takes longer so contributes to longer lines. I doubt we've heard the last of the matter, though. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/local/texas/federal-judge-blocks-texas-elimination-of-straight-ticket-voting/285-26a76985-5fcf-4814-b1d6-f1953b56236e?fbclid=IwAR2vx6F4hdN0GvlkxZDG4PEg1nAvPS8f5Yb-y53ZXvpDexPXF48V8z4pfIA
  22. Interesting. Statins may result in milder illness. https://ucsdnews.ucsd.edu/pressrelease/statins-reduce-covid-19-severity-likely-by-removing-cholesterol-that-virus-uses-to-infect
