    he's a workhorse when it comes to putting in hours - granted I'm sure folks will argue about what he's doing during those hours but that's not really my point.  

    How is that not the point?  What makes you think he's any more of a "workhorse" than the average US citizen?

    This is the brand of politics we get with corrupt rulers and an ignorant population.  Look at them, they nominated Donald Trump and Joe Biden to be President of the USA.  They think they’re performing a democratic service by voting for this.  

    I think Trump’s cultlike following is still somehow less insulting than people that are gaslighting the entire country about who Joe Biden is, but goodness this is just an atrocity.  

    Trump's cultlike following is the stupidest, scariest thing I've witnessed in national American politics in my lifetime. 

    "Who Joe Biden is" is secondary in this context.  I get that people don't trust politicians in general, and to an extent Trump's rise to power is directly a result of people wanting something other than what they perceive as the same turd sandwich getting served up every four years.  But to the OP's point, the debate on Tuesday night would not have been an all-time ####show if it was Biden vs. any other candidate in history.  Trump is uniquely disastrous.

    Look at these 2 pictures less than 10 minutes apart

    Do you normally change backgrounds and clothes 10 minutes apart?  You really don't see how it's an attempt to look like two completely different times as if he's doing well over an extended period of time that was photographed at various times of the day? 

    He took a picture in one location, then moved to another one with a different background and a different table, put a jacket ON, and then took another picture less than 10 minutes later, while signing a blank sheet of paper.

    Crazy conspiracy theory, I know!

    You're confusing them with the two pictures thing.  Either of those pictures, taken alone, is a silly political photo op.  Every adult human knows this.

    I have no idea what his condition is or isn't.  Again, I guess if you buy into all the theories that he's rapidly declining with his health then you would buy into this one.  Two pictures where one has a jacket on and the other doesn't isn't proof of a photo op unless you live in crazy conspiracy world.  No wonder this country is a mess

    I didn't say anything about his condition or his jacket.  It's obviously a photo op, you have to be really confused about how the universe works to not understand that.  This isn't crazy conspiracy world, this is the real world.  You're living in... something else if you can't see those photos for what they are.

    I follow things pretty closely and I’ve definitely said some very uncomplimentary things about our President and even I was in shock at the display the other night.  And Biden didn’t wrap himself in glory.  And it ultimately didn’t change anything for me but I was still a little in shock.

    I don’t get what there was to be shocked about. What did you expect to see out of Trump? This is what he is.

    On Tuesday the public saw what Trump was really like behind the scenes. I think it woke some folks up. 

    Who are these folks who - after Trump has spent decades as a public figure and the last three and a half years as the actual President - just now figured out what Trump is really like?  Who learned anything new Tuesday night?  Everyone already knew what a stupid pile of humanoid trash he is, there's just a big chunk of the country who want that in the White House.

    Right but he didn’t say that. He was making a bunch of awkward excuses for why he went that don’t make sense, and he was fumbling with it.  If he just came out and said “hey, I feel great, I came here just in case I took a turn for the worse, but I’m getting excellent treatment and making good progress,” I wouldn’t think more of it. He just seemed to be trying too hard to justify why he went. 

    If he came out and made a succinct, sensible statement I’d assume it was a deepfake or something. A rambling incoherent statement means he’s fine (relatively speaking).

    He answered a question of the mod asking why a person would post a like emoji. 

    Why was Jon trying to read that poster’s mind?  The very thing you quoted Jon calling “disgusting?” As it turns out Jon didn’t even know what the link he posted was talking about.

    It is an accurate statement supported by polls.  Maybe your disgust should be pointed towards the respondants.

    Total BS.  Everything i stated was accurate.  Are facts offensive?  Maybe the poll was erraneous, but the poll says what it says.

    But that is an inaccurate statement of what the poll said.  ...  What i said was accurate.  What you stated is not.

    Do poll results offend people.  Really funny how triggered people are about facts and wanting to turn accurate statements into personal attacks.

    I need to see how the poll waa set up.  It is confusing hiw it was reported since the numbers add up to more than 100.  I assumed it was one question instead of a series of questions.  It seems it is a series, so then it is questionable how much overlap there is.  Different people respond to a series of questions differently.  Some people will only say yes to one answer as best describing how they feel while others will pick multiple answers.  But since there is some overlap, the numbers will not be cummulative.  So that was an error on my part.

    It's not pizzamath. It's a word association game, where the pollster threw out a bunch of words and then asked respondents to reply with Yes or No.

    A surprising number of Republican respondents (15%!!) replied "Yes" to the word "Excited."

    The pizzamath is jon apparently not understanding it wasn't a multiple choice question and combining the results in a nonsensical way.

    But that is an inaccurate statement of what the poll said.  The choices were sad, happy, indifferent or worried.  91 percent of Republicans positively stated they were sad or worried.  Answering worried is not the same as saying they are not sad.  40 percent of Democrats in the poll positively said they were happy and 41 percent were indifferent.  What i said was accurate.  What you stated is not.

    While 55 percent of Republicans reported feeling "sad" and 51 percent reported feeling "worried"

    I play cart golf

      I get around 10000 steps for a round.    Trump gets a lot of exercise.     And he doesn't drink the six pack i throw into the mix.

    :lmao: I’d wager most FBGs have played at least a few rounds of golf with carts in their lifetime. It’s not exercise lol.

    Oh we aren’t mandating it. We have been told we can not force kids to turn their cams on.

    I’m sure if push came to shove the teachers can’t actually force a kid to turn it on, obviously, though I think the student wouldn’t receive credit for attendance if it was off. Again, I’m specifically talking about elementary age kids here, part of the reason people wanted to move to live remote instruction here (I believe) is they basically wanted someone watching their kids all day. Defeats the purpose of the kid’s allowed to turn off his camera. I overhear reminders to turn them back on at least a dozen times a day.

    Online when they are bored or frustrated, they just mute and turn off the cam. While that’s bad for learning, it’s not disruptive to anyone else.

    It is here because the teacher then has to stop whatever they're doing to tell the bored kid to turn their camera back on.  They're supposed to leave them on unless instructed otherwise.
