The Missouri guys here better vote for her!  :laugh:

Maybe I'm wrong, but I find it off-putting when people pose with guns just to be posing with guns.

I'm wondering if Trump is playing 4D chess, or just confident that he'll be able to trip Biden up, or what? This does not seem like anything close to a fair debate platform. I'm fully expecting these moderators to attack him. I wouldn't be surprised if they rigged a cutoff switch to his mic "for fairness".

I want to know what drugs they pumped Joe up with for the last debate. You could see it clearly in his eyes he was on something.

I just got back from "early and often" primary voting.  =D

Man, I love in-person voting in my part of Idaho. You walk in and it's like a big party full of happy people. When you're done voting after they take your ballot, they call out, "Ben has voted" and the workers and voters clap and cheer.

It seems like this year, they are being extra secure with the voter ID checks, and I had to repeat back my name and address at two separate stations. While machines were there, they seemed to be heavily promoting pen and paper ballots. I don't know how much of that is the state and how much of it is my voting jurisdiction being deep dark red. Which, kinda like with gun rights and gun violence, it's not the red areas you have to worry about so much regarding voter ID fraud, so while I like that they seemed to be very meticulous about ID checks, there's likely a very low probability anybody is trying to use a fake ID. It's the commie pinko areas you have to worry about.

My Texas driver's license has a UPC code on the back.  They just scan that and confirm my name and look at me.  While the people are normally pleasant, I never had them cheer or clap.

It won't happen, of course, but it's decent well-poisoning.

It's the commie pinko areas you have to worry about.

I'm pretty certain I registered to vote as soon as I was old enough, and that was about 60 years ago. For most of that time, I have lived in the same town where I grew up. I am constantly perplexed by all the MSM blather objecting to showing proof of ID when voting, as if that's somehow an infringement on civil rights. As far back as I can remember (at least the day before yesterday), I have always had to show ID when voting. They have tables set up near the entrance to the old grammar school gym (which is where we vote). Usually there are four tables, and voters are directed to a table based on an alphabetical distribution by street name. At each table there's a Republican registrar and a Democrat registrar. They each have an identical list of registered voters. I hand my driver's license to the first registrar. He or she crosses my name off, then hands my driver's license to the other registrar, who then crosses my name off the other list and hands my license back to me.

No muss, no fuss, and I wouldn't want it to be any different. I would be VERY upset if I showed up to vote in the late afternoon or evening and they told me, "Sorry, you've already voted."

A couple of good comments from that link.   =D

One way you know this is bullshit is Claire McCaskill doesn’t go to grocery stores.

@nicksortor
🚨 JUST IN: Joe Biden will NOT appear on the Ohio ballot in November as of right now, according to the Ohio Secretary of State

The Democratic Party has refused to follow state law requiring both parties to officially nominate their presidents 90 days before an election. Democrats aren’t doing that until 75 days prior.

And now, since the legislature has adjourned, the law cannot be changed, and Secretary of State Frank LaRose cannot make an exception.

This oughta be interesting!

Biden will get on the Ohio ballot via the courts.  Just have to find a couple of Biden-friendly judges.  Not hard to do.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Nevertheless, it will be entertaining to watch the left wordsmith regarding it being bad now, but good when it was happening to Trump.  :laugh:

Absolutely.  I've read a few of these comparisons already.  More double standards than grains of sand in your sandbox.

143 democrats voted against barring non-citizen voting in DC elections. It still passed, but still, we can see what many libs want. Next up, national elections.

Trump expected 3500 people for the Bronx rally. He got 25,000. We can see that the CNN reporter is not happy to be there. I can only imagine how pissed off AOC is right now.  :rofl:

I'm not expecting Trump to win NY, or even the Bronx, but when you put that together with some other signs, it really does look like a historic realignment. Unless the Democrats can really cook up some magical propaganda in the next few years, I don't think they'll ever again get 85%-plus of the black vote.
