Plank #3 of the dems attack platform - Taxes!

Their is no upside for any wealthy person to show their taxes.. it just shows regular people how little they pay in income taxes. And its not a complete picture of their true tax expenditures. Just pisses people off.
& the top 10 percent still pay 70%
Yep, i do.

And yes it seems to be very nasty in practice and really not at all what the framers of the constitution had intended for us. One day, and i hope it's in my lifetime, we will all argue about the merits of each candidate and who is better, instead of digging dirt on and disparaging and deciding which turd smells the least horrible. Unfortunately the really good people like that just arent nasty enough or are just too intelligent to get into politics.

Personally, I'd like to see more of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMujqNqYr10
Like I said, we agree on more than we disagree, with the exception of Alex Grinch being some defensive savior.

@TheMonkey shared this and it seemed to be ignored.
Politics can be civil. But dont tell a trump voter that, they'll call it fake news.

Grinch was a great hire. He will absolutely turn them around, but im not going to pretend it wont take a couple recruiting cycles. All I know is he took over a bottom 30 defense and turned them into a top 30 defense last season. So he's got my vote.

I'm pretty sure i saw a lot of similar photos in 2016 but instead of biden, it was clinton. She still got 3 million more votes than he did. and she's a complete trash human. Biden will get more votes than she did

As Clinton found out, you have to get the votes in the right places.. just getting huge votes from Cali and New York doesn't get you in the white house. Seven states hold the balance of power in their hands.

Obviously. A big part of that was the slim margins by which he won decent sized states that could have went either way. Here is a list of states that were won by less than 2% margin- Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, Minnesota- those states are 85 EC votes if i did my math right. clinton only won one of those in 16. Biden is trailing trump in 0 of those states right now. Yeah i take polling with a grain of salt but it's a good guide. One thing we have now that we didnt have in 2016 is 4 years of trump in our daily lives and that will have an impact on the election. it seems to have, at this point, lead to record early voting.

Stupid about AGW!!
So the new Borat movie is coming out this weekend. Apparently in the film Borat was able to get Rudy Giuliani into a hotel room...where a then actress who Rudy was told was Borat's 15 YEAR OLD Daughter...when the camera crews bust in and Rudy is laying on the bed of the hotel room with his pants unzipped.

This happened After the COVID pandemic had started

Not sure why there would be questions. The actress is 24 and in the scene Borat waits until Rudy is in a little bit of a compromised situation and blurts out that she’s only 15.
