I can't be the only one that thinks Don is making a yuge tactical mistake getting into a pissing match with Obama. How does blaming a recent two-time winner and still admired president help his 53% disapproval rating?

" LOCK HIM UP"

I don't think his rating is what he's worried about.

Of course, the problem with ignoring me on this particular issue is that most of what I’m saying is agreed with by the majority of the American public. You can ignore them as well if you like, though you won’t be able to after November.

I'm not sure it's the issue that people want to ignore Tim.

Tim, you're one of the few never-Trumpers willing to address this election with the same optimistic confidence that our opponents almost always display. Fivethirtyeight had an interesting email chat yesterday discussing the psychology behind never-Trumpers' caution, even though the numbers are on our side.

FWIW, Rachel Bitecofer, whom we've discussed in various other threads, says that Biden is a heavy favorite, too. She called the midterms on the nose and looks at the numbers a little differently than most observers, but even though that's encouraging to me, I can't bring myself to feel good about things. And probably won't until and if it's actually called for Sleepy Joe. I'll get pretty excited if North Carolina and Pennsylvania fall early in the evening, though it'll feel a little like when Southampton goes up a goal on Liverpool.

Lol if you guys want to ignore me, then just ignore me. Never understood why you need help to do it. 

You provide good entertainment and your post volume single handedly keeps things afloat in here. There are only a couple it’s worth using on.

The "little s twins" are a great start. I honestly think I'm good now simply having those two on ignore. I don't want to create a bubble for myself after all.

Yeah I find her arguments compelling. I do try to be an optimistic person in general but I need reason to do so. I wasn’t optimistic in 2016. I predicted Hillary would win but I was increasingly nervous about it and very critical of her campaign. 

I’m not optimistic right now. I think Trump will get crushed in the election but who cares? By then it will be too late. I doubt I’ll be in any mood to celebrate. We can’t wait until January for good leadership, we need it now. If only President Trump were willing to lead, RIGHT NOW, I’d happily vote for his re-election despite everything. I mean that sincerely.

No doubt. But what bothers me about President Trump is that there appear to be certain types of people that he wants less of than others. 

Latinos are more vulnerable to COVID and Mexico is only testing about a quarter of the people the US is. Seems like bow is a good time to figure things out instead bringing people in from outside of the community.

Just got hit with my first random act of kindness. Guy in front of me paid for my Wendies.

Thanks Trump you have made America great again. I am going to start thanking Trump for everything good that happens to me. Kind of the opposite of what some on the left do.

Yeah, but that's based on a whole bunch of lies.

He's not racist anymore than you are.

Trump is now responsible for random acts of kindness in this country?

In any event, they shouldn't be forced back to work any more than people are forced back to their employers by state governors. 

Sorry, I'm not staying at home all day goofing off on the forum. I got things to do.

Quote

Shawn Yanity, chairman of the Stillaguamish tribe, has said the tribe decided to reopen the casino because it has bills to pay, loan payments to make and more than 850 laid-off employees eager to get back to work.

More Opening

Quote

 

The Angel of the Winds casino operated by the Stillaguamish Tribe in Arlington was the first to open on the west side of the Cascades and drew thousands of people in a line of cars that stretched four miles from the property along the highway.

“It was daunting,” said general manager Travis O’Neil. “We did not know what to expect, and if the neighbors are reading this, I apologize.” The tribe eventually called out its police and county officers also worked the traffic that frustrated locals just trying to get home.

People waited in line for entry for three hours and longer. Operating at only half capacity, the facility has been constantly full since it opened, despite operating 24 hours a day,  O’Neil said. Part of the delay in entering was a safety briefing and temperature check for every patron, O’Neil said. “We are taking this very seriously.”

If you are just going to be condescending like this, don't expect me respond in the future.

:confused:  sorry, I was apologizing for not posting back timely. 

Thought you like to see all the casinos opening. 850 hospitality workers in just one casino. Divide by three shifts and add on 50% capacity for customers.  That's a lot of people gathered. Way more than 10, or 50. Probably closer to a sporting event or concert. 

If you think that was condescending perhaps you should take a break. Go do something, the virus isnt deadly at all of you are under 65 and healthy. I feel for the elderly that like to flock to the casinos tho. Most hospitality workers should be fine though.

People on the right for years in this forum have said stuff to the effect of "Sorry, I didn't respond because I actually work for living" or "I'm not staying at home all day goofing off," or "Go do something" and all those type of remarks are condescending.

Any thought on the casinos?

It didnt really offend you though. It's your defense mechanism when people post facts you dont like and cant defend.

I have a few. 

They shouldn’t be allowed to be open. Not yet. Too many people in one place. We need to have more testing and tracing first. Someone is going to to get sick and die; it’s not safe.

As an Independent, it’s unusual to see so many in here that claim to be Independent spend hours on end basing our POTUS and being on the opposite end of issues 100% of the time.

You are no more of an independent than the people you are referring to.

The independent shtick in this place cracks me up. :lol:

Why should people wait in line for an hour to vote on Tuesday evening after working all day?

You get a ballot in the mail. You fill it out. It gets sent in.

This is a no-brainer.

As an independent I’m here to say I think he’s been a real surprise as a leader. I think he’s done a very good job. I appreciate his no-nonsense, get #### done approach to gov’t. Probably because it’s something we’ve never seen before. Making it all the more impressive is that he was doing it up against an attempted coup by the most powerful people in our country. He’s very resilient. 
 

Still not sure what I’ll do in November. I do wish he would stay away from some subjects on Twitter. Like even now I wish he would back off the Obamagate talk and let Barr and Durham do their job. I will not vote for Biden under any circumstance. He brings absolutely nothing to the table and is probably sleazier and more corrupt than Donald. So third party or Trump.

"A great leader" and an "attempted coup" :lol:

I think you can drop the "independent" stuff you are a Trump guy. It's ok to admit it.
