You are reading page 79 of Presidential Election 2020. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Can't remember which paper you were trying to read, but many operate like this one:

Get Around the Times Paywall by Clearing Cookies

The New York Times currently uses browser cookies, and not IP addresses, to keep track of how many articles you have read on their online website. That means if you are reading the NYT articles in Google Chrome and then switch to Firefox or IE, the limit is reset to zero because cookies aren’t shared across browsers.

If you would like to stick with one browser, you can still get around the NYT paywall by clearing the cookies that are associated with nytimes.com

I've also seen assertions that if you copy and paste just the title of the article into google search, the article will pop up without a paywall.

Might be worth a try. When you clear your cookies, you do often have to re-log in to sites that recognize you.

You're right.  It worked when I went to cookies of which I noticed WaPo was on there.  I always thought it started over every month, but I haven't been able to read for a while.  Same with the local paper here.   

I forget about clearing out cookies and haven't done that in a while.

Nope. Asking to have better representation of our populace in the highest office isn't racist, but insisting on only having elderly white men in that position might be. Does the thought of having a person of color, a woman, or someone who actually doesn't qualify for Medicare when those demographics have had an effective monopoly of the office offend your sensibilities?

Also, as a white person with white children, it's not likely that I am racist towards white people. 😉 

 

It sounds like you're dismissing him because he's an "elderly white man" and that is no more fair than dismissing  Buttigieg because he's a young gay man, or Harris because she's a black female. 

I get what you're saying, that it's time to pass the torch to someone that might be more in tune with the diversity that is America in 2019.  From the immediate hatred and birther movement and arrival of the Tea Party after Obama was elected, it would seem mainstream America isn't quite ready for that.  That of course is not a reason to stick with the status quo.  One should vote for whom they feel is the best candidate.  Personally, at this point I'm not thinking it's Biden and I had mad love for him when he was Obama's VP.

Absolutely not. Saying that we need more diversity in our leadership is not racist, when our country is a literal melting pot not fairly represented. We need more fair representation in every way, in government and business and just about every other area,  and continuing to elect people who embody the status quo in a way that is NOT representative of our population is actually the opposite, even if those in power look just like me and might actually benefit me rather than those who might come into power. I find these kinds of comments in response to a call for diversity to be rather disingenuous.  "You want diversity, and in order to achieve diversity, you by necessity must reject someone who represents the status quo in hugely unequal numbers relative to their percentage in our popularion, so you are being racist?' Umm, no, it's asking to change what in reality is a huge disgrace...

If 44 out of 45 US Presidents were 40 something gay males, I probably would be calling for someone who wasn't ANOTHER 40 something year old gay male. If 44 out 45 US Presidents were black females, and yet another black female was being put up for president, I'd be speaking for change. Let's not be disingenuous-acknowledging the fact that wealthy white males have been running this country (not just as president, but in leadership in almost any area you can think of) at a rate far exaggerated in comparison to their numbers as a problem is not being racist. It's speaking up for fairness and it's time that the status quo be challenged. 

I'm a white woman in the 1% according to assets. It's to my benefit to see the status quo continue. Seeing a person who deviates drastically from the kind of leadership we have typically elected come onto the scene and take the mantle of leadership is likely going to hurt my bottom line. I have a taxable estate, so it's going to hurt my kids' bottom line. But I can recognize unfairness and inequity in our society and not want to see that continue, for the good of humanity that takes priority over individual advancement.

I can not disagree with what you're saying.  

Saying "I'm voting for diversity, change and representation" sounds better than "I'm not voting for him because he's an elderly white man".

I am voting for whomever is Trump's opposition.

Don't care if they are young, or old, gay or straight, or Black, Brown or White.

As long as they are not DJT, or representing the party of Trump, they are okay, with me.

Reading reporting out of Iowa, most Democrats agree with me: Anybody who can beat Trump!

Read in today's Herald-Leader, that Trump is planning to visit KY, to campaign for governor Matt Bevin.

Bevin is the most unpopular governor in the country.

I thought it ironic, that, the least popular governor, would seek help from a highly unpopular occupant of the WH.

Two unpopular people, seeking to prop each other up.

Good grief!

I will say that Bernie sounded like Trump, today, complaining about the WaPo.

It was clear, Bernie isn't happy with their reporting.

But there was little difference in tone, between his complaining and Trump's.

I so hope that Trump comes to Louisville while I'm here. I would love to show off my new Moscow Mitch t-shirt.
