  1. I thought I would create a thread where we can talk about what he's currently up to. No particular topic but one that's ongoing with what he's doing and saying. I'll start with this speech on Black History Month. Seemed very narcissistic, immature and disjointed. He went off topic to make a slam against CNN and their "fake news". Trump used a Black History Month speech to talk about himself, how he did with black voters, and CNN - Vox

    I agree. Debate isn't dividing the party. I love this summary of Castro: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/09/debate-booker-momentum-castro-biden-fail-surge.html

    Can you explain this further please? Is it that candidates won't have to go to states that are small to raise money? Where does the 35% come from? I think the people that are against the electoral college would be happy with whomever got the most votes.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I can't find any documentation of these hit and run claims and would be interested myself. In trying to find this information I did find that there was a myth that Clinton won the popular vote by only winning only 57 of the 3,000 plus counties in the country. The true number turned out to be 487 counties. Like the five county statement above, I have to stop and think "if it sounds too outrageous to be true, it might not be". I understand the concern of the conservatives. Some huge metro areas are liberal, although some like in Arizona and Texas might not be. The electoral college won the election for Trump. My county is on the list above the the most populated and it went for Trump (but at least my neighborhood didn't).

    Good morning! Joe, hope the day goes well. Sounds like they are organized pretty well for the work from home standpoint. Had a nice visit with my sister. She's lost a good deal of weight because of her diverticulitis she says. She's joined a community of people that collect throwaway stuff from places like CVS and donates it to hospice and whatnot. Also one of the wealthier apartment complexes at the university at the end of the school year has a big dumpster where the students throw away stuff they've accumulated like laptops, clothes, phones and furniture that people can use. Was quite interesting. I had two cups of coffee at dinner and stayed up to about 1AM watching YouTube and reading. Feel okay today though. The last three nights haven't been good sleep but waking up several times through the night. Bleh. Going to work on many hours of "Computer Based Training" that I'm behind on for work. That's my only agenda for today.

    As I've previously stated this early into it, I tend not to watch debates. I appreciate you guy's input. I switched from Independent to Democrat as our primaries are closed specifically so I could vote in the primaries in 2020. So I will pay attention as time goes on. I agree they all have their faults that I have to sift through prior to voting. Beto O'Rouke's "Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15," seems to be getting attention. I agree, that it's a stance that people shouldn't be afraid to state. Castro is not getting good reviews either from Fox News or CNN. Biden is getting the best reviews I've seen, including CNN and Fox News. Warren does need to be honest about the costs of her programs, especially to middle class people making decent incomes, and somehow convince middle class voters like me the cost is worth it and not be so vague. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/doug-schoen-at-third-dem-debate-one-big-winner-and-two-surprise-losers https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/12/politics/who-won-the-debate/index.html

    I totally agree that "No one had a bigger set of luggage than Trump!" and she couldn't beat him. Yes, I know all about the the election and the electoral college. We discussed it and I posted thousands of times on it. But let's be honest. Obama won the electoral college by winning some of those states with outsized numbers of racists and Hillary lost to Trump. This is my last post about her. Thanks for the discussion though.

    Truth. She wasn't treated fairly by the extreme right but in the end, I still think she wasn't the right candidate because of this and other baggage that she wasn't able to overcome. While she garnered the popular vote a Democrat, should have easily won the electoral college against a candidate like Trump. Moot point because as Nel said HRC isn't in the White House is she?

    Good Morning! What's there to say about 9/11 that hasn't been said. Joe, have a nice dinner with J. Good luck with getting to work from home. I'm off today and have been to gym. Meeting best friend for lunch and going to Sam's Club to get him some stuff then helping with the usual laundry and cat litter stuff.

    I don't think that was me. But if Obama was the only one on the ticket then why bother with a Primary and that doesn't bother me. I do think it's a bit pre-mature to cancel Republican primaries as it's a little less than a year away and there do seem to be some challengers to Trump stepping up. Although it's pretty much understood that Trump will be the Republican nominee.

    I have no point but to respond to you saying "HRC, doesn't occupy the WH, does she?" I actually don't think she was a bad candidate, but even though she won the popular vote, she should have easily beat Trump. The problem, like I said was she wasn't a good candidate because of her baggage. She couldn't overcome Bengazi, the emails, her husband and Obama. I saw the writing on the wall. She might have been correct in calling them "deplorables" but it was a mistake. In my opinion. I think I discussed the sexism during the actually election, so no need to touch on that again. It's a done deal and she lost.

    She lost to Trump. Need I say more? When she did go low calling Trump supporters "deplorables" it backfired in her face and became a rallying cry against her.

    Clinton was a terrible candidate that even democrats couldn't stomach voting for her. She had so much baggage. I don't think her sinking into vulgarity would have helped her. Michelle's speech made headline news and was widely praised. But even she couldn't help her beat Trump.

    Well, I mean for this time. When I see vulgarity again, I'm going to call it out. But I do go there frequently, dangling a beheaded Trump, a naked statue of Trump, calling him a piece of , each time I'll probably revisit this stance. Each time you're going to defend such vile behavior as deserved and necessary. So it's not the last your going to say either.

    Good Morning! Joe, hope you have a nice calm week. Herring, I would agree that "I Will Always Love You" is one of the most brilliantly written love songs of a ll time. J22, we have a lot of thunderstorms here in the Summer during our rainy seasons and I don't mind them. Although this area has more lightening strike deaths than anywhere in the country, so I do respect them. Good of you to make a home visit on a Sunday and nice they pay extra like that. Work yesterday was steady busy but got it all done. Now off for a few days. It's "clean the bathrooms Monday" how exciting. Hope everyone has a great day.

    Legend and his wife have been vulgar haters of the President for years. Legend has called him a "piece of sh*t" before. His wife has called has said "What a Kitty Butt Witch" (not really what she said but you get the gist I hope). Sometimes in life you get what you give. That being said Trump should take the high road and act like a President and not a petulant teenager.
  19. Good Morning! Amolucia, I do have trouble opening those packages and usually just use scissors. My big issue is they never reseal. I'll grad it days later to find it open. They are the Devil's work. Work yesterday was busy but okay. Census is low with only 7 patients. I hope they get an admission or two and we keep our tech. With 7 we don't get a get a tech. Then again it's one of the lazy techs, so really I'm screwed no matter what. Off Monday and for a few days to regroup and reset my mind and attitude. Dealing with some minor self-disappointments which I won't get into but need to work on. Overslept this morning by 23 minutes. Forgot to turn the alarm on. Again. I do tend to make the same mistakes over and over again.

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    Trump says China is paying billions and billions in tariffs and slams the fed. It's going to be clear that if the economy tanks or even slows in any way and he isn't "winning" it's going to be someone else's fault. Also, the tariffs are often paid by US companies not just China. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-tariffs-on-china-who-pays-tariffs-fact-check-billions-statement/
  21. Good Morning! Joe, can understand that choir is taking a lot out of you when you're otherwise busy. Should be more fun than that. BC, sounds like a good productive day. Amolucia, that cake does sound good. Lucky that you have a good home health aid. We have a nurse that's been here over the at mom-baby place for over 50 years now. She works night shift, has cut back to part time and is in her 70's. Amazing. I don't always go to the yellow side on a daily basis, but I'm not finding the complaints of today are any more different than what we were saying when I joined way back when. Herring, hope you don't get more migraines and that you're feeling well. J22, guess I didn't know that you made home visits, but sounds challenging lately. I was semi-productive on my one day off yesterday. Working today and tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great day.

    The Congressional Thread

    I know we're not supposed to restart closed threads, but how about an AOC/Green Deal/Socialist thread? "The Latina Thing" https://news.yahoo.com/ocasio-cortez-fires-back-at-fox-news-over-latina-thing-segment-140426925.html I would think she knows how to say her name. I've seen bilingual people pronounce their name and other words while speaking in English with an accent. It's nothing to be made fun of. I think she would know how to say her name. Of course her firing back is a bit of her usual bravado and arrogance.

    Looks like Omar has some competition in Minnesota and she's definitely now shying away from Donald Trump.
