  1. Never heard of it before Monday. Was wondering why there was a big uproar over "attacking" her because she is Catholic. I didn't actually see any attacks. But it makes a bit more sense now. The proactive defense of attacking her Catholicism was actually put out there to thwart the fact that she's part of this obscure group that has 1,700 members worldwide and teaches that "women are encouraged to provide food and childcare and run an effective household". People of Praise Wiki site I'm going to leave it at that. I am Catholic, but not religious, have never heard of them before, and some of their ideas do seem a bit misogynistic IMO. But I'm not a religious expert so I'll just bow out here.
  2. What is the deal with people infringing on other people's rights because they don't agree with something? Don't want to vote early? Then don't. Simple as that. Stop trying to tell other people what they should and shouldn't do because of what you think. That's the larger point of "pro-choice" that unsurprisingly gets missed in those discussions.
  3. It does seem a bit hypocritical, they were happy to earn a fine living. But a great song, and true from his perspective nonetheless. "Oh by the way, which one's Pink?"
  4. While not "policy" per se, it would follow that most conservatives probably agree that 3 supreme court justices in 4 years is a win whether Trump is re-elected or not, to be completely frank.
  5. Not that it matters to me personally, but there's been a lot of discussion about how she's being "attacked" for being Catholic. Attacks which I haven't seen, but I have seen the accusations of attacks. From the website linked above: "Jesus desires unity for all people. We live out this unity the best we can, in spite of the divisions within Christianity. We are Roman Catholics, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Methodists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians and other denominational and nondenominational Christians." So, how does it follow that she's Catholic? None of the Catholic churches I've attended state that they are also "Lutherans, Episcopalians, Methodists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians and other denominational and nondenominational Christians". Seems straightforward enough, until it isn't at all.
  6. Are folks voting by mail concerned at all that their vote will be thrown out/nullified? I plan to vote in person because I feel like can't trust what will happen if I vote by mail, and that's one of the most gut-wrenching questions to deal with in America, the bastion of democracy. We have a president who is actively discrediting the very premise that our democracy hinges upon. Oh, and big props to all for voting!
  7. Working hard for my daughter: sold 3 houses, purchased 2 to get her in the best school district we could, summer camp, dance, extra math lessons, we ran our own small camp during the pandemic summer. Also I’m sure we could have, and I could also drive a more expensive car. But it’s not about me anymore, it’s all for her. And to know that the level of personal responsibility we all have to take on as Americans for healthcare, for retirement security, and to do everything we can for our families, and to see this silver spoon inheritance baby steal from America and have his children live a yacht and private jet lifestyle makes me sick and I doubt I’m alone in that.
  8. Tell me all about it I-friend. Imagine cutting a check for $7600 a couple months back, that’s after the $36K withholding, and then hearing about this. I drive a 2011 Pilot with 92,000 miles on it. Wife and I have each been working for 25+ years and haven’t taken a vacation in 5 years. I guess I’m just a loser and a sucker though. Sorry about making it so personal about me, but this time it’s just too flipping far and I suspect I’m not alone.
  9. This plays well to Republicans and Independents that work hard and pay their taxes? The only segment I see this playing well with is his diehards who probably won’t believe it anyway.
  10. I paid more in taxes in 2019 than Trump did in 15 years. Then he requested a refund of $72 million. He spent $72K for his hairstylist, which he writes off, and pays Ivanka as a consultant even through she is an employee of his company, which is illegal. He’s also golfed over 200 times at his properties since taking office at a cost of $120 million to taxpayers. It’s disgusting and everyone who works hard and pays their taxes should be beyond appalled.
  11. As someone who wrote a check for $7600 to the IRS after already paying $36K in withholdings in 2019 one could say I’m not very pleased right now.
  12. Yes, enough already. Vote. Stop going on the streets. “Both sides” are misrepresented by these groups.
