    Trump Regime thread.

    Are you inferring some Dems would get like... oh.. idk.. questions ahead of time? I find that absurd, sir! Pure poppycock! Also went to a town hall with Andrew Yang at my states capital. Great answers. I hope with nobody but Biden on night 2 of the debates that he can create a moment for himself and start making waves in the polling. He has the potential.

    Trump Regime thread.

    That’s what I was just going to ask actually. I was wondering if you were talking more 2016 while Than was thinking more currently. You’re absolutely right about 2016. The nomination was stolen from him / for Hillary. The DNC has been planing that Clinton power play for yearsssss. Is that still a problem today though? I mean, I will read any facts you have that say otherwise but I don’t think it is. A combination of more progressive candidates in the pool plus Bernie’s willingness kneel to the establishment in 2016 makes him considerably less desirable. If Bernie can’t / won’t even challenge the DNC for being crooks and cheats .... why should I expect him to stand up for me when he is in the White House? Frankly, I don’t. Plus, doesn’t it feel that overall he just has less steam ? Maybe that all changes as we whittle away at the candidates ... but I think Warren has stolen a lot of Bernie’s mojo . Regardless of your opinions of her, she’s playing to a lot of the same crowd as Bernie and she’s probably not exiting anytime soon.

    Jon Stewart's Speech to Congress

    Cutting spending should definitely be something talked about. But uh. Ya... this isn’t the hill you want to die on. You could make similar objections about pretty much any legislation on the floor. Not wise to pick this one to plant your flag into.

    Trump Regime thread.

    Yeah, it all mostly name recognition and sound bytes right now. Joe Biden is running off that Obama Nostalgia -- I don't think it holds til the end, but who knows. Andrew Yang had a pretty huge gathering in Portland a few days ago. Way bigger crowd than you would assume for somebody polling at like 2%. Polls can be deceiving, but it doesn't mean they are rigged directly. Maybe indirectly if they target only certain demographics or really specific areas of the country. Not even saying that happens, just saying that seems more practical at the very least. Also, I'm totally fine going third party again. I am not voting for a candidate who is exactly like Trump minus the dumb things he does and says on Twitter... If those are the hairs we're splitting, it doesn't even matter anymore. And unfortunately, I think the Supreme Court is already pretty much lost if you are looking for more progressives. Not accounting for unexpected deaths, really the only two I see dying / retiring are RBG (86) and Breyer (80). MAYBE Clarence Thomas (71). But if a democrat wins I could easily see him make it another 4 years to try and hold out for another (potential) GOP nomination. So yeah, Dems have no chance to flip the court, they just need to pray they win the election to keep the 5-4 minority. If not, yikes. lol. The real time to strike will probably be in 8-12 years when you are looking at Thomas and Alito being gone for almost sure and Roberts creeping up there hardcore. If Trump wins this election and just for arguments sake gets 2 picks.. yeah, it's gonna be a super heavy GOP SC rule .. but only guaranteed for a few years and, as I mentioned before, we are probably getting that anyway. If Trump loses this election... and dems win the 2024 re-elections... More than likely we're probably looking at either a dog fight or another GOP president in 2028 when the potential for flipping happens and you have those GOP Justices start to fall away. If we get Trump in 2020.. I would almost guarantee a Dem takes it in 2024 then you get a very likely re-election in 2028 as an incumbant. That's probably the path for more progressive judges. Sure, I understand the argument that you want to replace the old Dems with new ones, but that still not shifting the scale -- especially if the GOP controls the white house in 2024/2028 when those GOP Justices start dying. Progressives need flipped seats, the retention (almost) doesn't even matter when you are looking at it as 2 dem justices in the next few years compared to 3 GOP justices in the next decade+. Honestly, if your argument is to save the SC... You might just want Trump to win in 2020. Then again, to counter my own argument... If Trump wins in 2020, he may be able to convince Thomas to retire midway through the term (2022) to secure that seat. But even in that case... Everything just comes out as a wash and Dems are still the likely minority on the SC through 2030+

    Caserio's contract (reportedly) ends after the 2020 draft. Idk if that is why... but it seems like they are really committing. lol

    Cherry's 2020 Draft Thread

    I was reading articles about the Packers being interested in Thompson. I don't know how much of that is just due process though -- considering we drafted Savage and signed Amos in FA.

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    GRRM came out with some new prequel details in an interview: https://ew.com/tv/2019/07/09/george-r-r-martin-game-of-thrones-prequel-facts/

    Trump Regime thread.

    I don't know the exact details of that. But shit definitely needs to be investigated. Epstein loved him some Trump and Billy Boy. Both need to be looked at and cleared (or not) of their connections with him. Idk if the same holds true for Trump but in the height of his sex trafficking, Bill Clinton flew out to Epstein's private island dozens of times. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but come on... Should be a bipartisan effort to seek the truth.

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    Martin has been calling it the Long Night but HBO doesn’t like that lol. We’re supposed to be getting a lot more backstory of the walkers and their creation as a parallel story to whatever else we’re getting.

    D&D aren't involved in any way though. There's a lot of basic background information to lay a foundation for whatever they decide to do. Have to give it a chance though.

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Last stream was about half an hour from me... lol

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Bro, this conversation is going to go back and forth without much resolution unless we can make some progress. I've said multiple times. I am totally fine with medicare for all -- IF WE DO IT RIGHT. That whole, " do you think it's fucked up that people can go bankrupt if you get cancer " is just rhetoric on your part. Bernie not even knowing that Canada still has private health insurance is mind boggling and tells me he is just reciting the same drivel over and over. He doesn't actually KNOW anything. Health coverage is an important issue to you, yet you're okay with Bernie running around to ONE HUNDRED FIFTY MILLION PEOPLE and telling them that they are going to be switching plans and that they can keep their doctors and hospitals? Sorry... stop me if you've heard this before. Also, who says the actual tax cost will be less than the copay/premiums? Bernie...? Who is on a debate stage, and didn't even say that until he was pushed over and over to admit he was bending over the middle class? Right. Who does that caveat apply to? All people? What if Sanders can't abolish private insurance because of Congress? Do those with employer insurance still get the benefits of Bernie's plan? (No, they don't). Would they still pay the increased taxes even though they aren't getting any benefit? (Yes, they would). Bloomberg.com looked at Bernie's plan and to cover the cost we're looking at a $10,000 increase per capita. THAT IS INSANE. Granted, that 10k per person would be at a progressive rate (the rich paying more per person) but how much is that going to leave me at? 8K dollars? 5k? 3k? We can not tax ourselves into prosperity. We CAN NOT. I am not trying to convince you to turn on Bernie. All I want is to give you a perspective that you do not have at this time. Bernie Sanders' version of medicare for all very likely hurts more than it helps and that is not acceptable. Find another way. EDIT: Don't you love that last tidbit too? For this to work, Bernie is expecting health providers to cut their payments by almost half. LOLOLOLOLOLOL. That's a joke. Health care is about to get A LOT more expensive if Bernie is ever elected and gets this legislation through. Let's all pray that never happens.
