  1. GOP has done this to themselves via their whistling past the graveyard. Simple safety precautions not taken because of bravado has undermined the party. Will they learn anything from it? Doubtful.
  2. So there are three senators so far positive for Covid? Not looking good for ACB confirmation.
  3. Our quarantine Oktoberfest was a lot of fun. Bigger than planned since once our kids got wind, they wanted to come too. (All but one is working from home, so they are pretty stir crazy.). So we sat on the patio, drank Riesling or beer, grilled brats, sang along to polka music and did the chicken dance. It was fun being around the kids and watching the dogs (five in all) play in the yard. DIL had some cute decorations made. Finally gave my son-in-law his birthday gift from last March, which is the last time we saw them in person. Probably won't see them for Thanksgiving this year as my oldest daughter and her husband have a must attend wedding in November for his family, so their plan is to self-isolate again for a couple of weeks after it is over to avoid infecting us, just in case. Strange year, but we are rolling with it.
  4. Dang it. Was just at Sam's Club today, noticed that they had lots of TP in stock, and didn't buy any. LOL We're still using the stock we bought in like Feb or Mar.
  5. Whoa! Discussion passes from theoretical to reality, Both Trump and wife are positive for Covid.
  6. Dang. The filtered vs. non filtered words in here are hard to predict. Does't seem to like KJV words. Sub, "harlot."
  7. 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.
  8. Wow. Pick a defense. So far, you weren't being sexist but ... were because she deserves it? Okay.
  9. 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.
  10. Wow. Conservative woman endorses other conservative women running for office. HORRORS!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. Would you have referred to a male aide in those terms?
  15. That is what I was thinking. Pence not a particularly charismatic figure, so I'm thinking they might choose someone else. Wonder who?
  16. Unless the electoral college decides differently maybe?
  17. 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 ???
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
