    Sununu Leads Hassan in NH for 2022 US Senate Race

    We have a new poll from the University of New Hampshire that shows Republicans could have a chance of picking up a much needed US Senate seat in 2022 if Chris Sununu is willing to run for the US Senate in New Hampshire and, more importantly, Republican primary voters are willing to give him the nomination despite his willingness to mildly criticize Trump about January 6th insurrection.

    US SENATE – NEW HAMPSHIRE (UNH)
    Chris Sununu (R) 48%
    Maggie Hassan (D-inc) 46%

    Maggie Hassan (D-inc) 48%
    Kelly Ayotte (R) 43%

    Maggie Hassan (D-inc) 52%
    Don Bolduc (R) 39%

    Maggie Hassan (D-inc) 53%
    Corey Lewandowski (R) 34%

    This poll was done February 18-22 among 1676 likely General Election voters.

      How long before Aaron Day announces an Indy run to try to help the moonbat?

    2. Cash Cow TM says:

      I’d vote for Sununu over the D-Inc.

      Now where my damn mail in ballot at?

    3. jason says:

      I hope Sununu runs.

      I also hope he resists pandering to the MSM.

      “Mildly criticizing” Trump about the Jan 6th riot (sorry Dave, not insurrection) Trump is not going to gain him any votes against Hassam but could cost him votes in the primary and the GE.

    4. jason says:

      Senator Cassidy got on one of the Sunday shows today.

      Mission accomplished.

      The MSM will always reward you.

    5. Phil says:

      Yes, Cassidy is now part of the exclusive club of MSM boot lickers. Mission accomplished indeed. What a club it is too.
      We have Cassidy, Romney, Toomey, Burr., Cheney……all constituent backstabbers determined to be loved by the Leftist media. Add them to the likes of Christie and Flake. Of course, they will never be loved by the left – only used for a few brief moments like the useful idiots they are…..but they don’t really care. Just thirsty for any pat on the head from CNN or maybe the Wsshington Post no matter how brief. They live for those moments. Such garbage.

    6. jason says:

      These guys don’t realize that the MSM will always despise them, but will be happy to use them to further their narrative while it is expedient to do so.

      nah … journalists are only in the business so they can fairly lay out all the different facets of a problem so their reader can draw their own conclusions after being given the facts

    8. lisab says:

      journalists are very similar to government employees, who have absolutely no agenda, and just follow the rules to be fair to all citizens

    9. jason says:

      I saw this quote of Trump at CPAC:

      “Yet Biden said just a few days ago that when he got here, meaning the White House, there was no vaccine. He said there’s no vaccine. Oh good, say it again Joe. Now I don’t think he said that frankly, in a malicious way. I really don’t. I actually believe he said that because he didn’t really know what the hell was happening.”

    10. jason says:

      nah … journalists are only in the business so they can fairly lay out all the different facets of a problem so their reader can draw their own conclusions after being given the facts”

      LOL

    11. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Trump gave a very good speech at the CPAC. It is clear he intends to run again in 2024.

    12. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Trump particularly emphasized how well the economy was doing under his administration prior to the epidemic, and how well it had bounced back because the of the policies he had enacted. Fully expect Biden’s socialistic policies to create economic problems in the future; and for it to become a major campaign issue in 2022 and 2024.

    13. jason says:

      Not that sure he will run.

    14. Gordon Allen says:

      Thought Trump looked well and made a good speech. As common sense would tell you he’s keeping his options open.

    15. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Trump strongly hinted that he would run, and the liberal media is focusing on it. Peter Navarro believes so:

      “Former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro is confident former President Donald Trump will be on the ballot in four years.”

      It is possible he will not, but his speech was reminiscent of one of his campaign rallies. I don’t see Trump as a quitter. He knows he has the support of the vast majority of Republicans. He did look very well and rested.

    16. jason says:

      Navarro also said Durham will issue at least 3 indictments.

      I will believe it when I see it.

      I am not saying he won’t run. But 3 years is a long time and he is not going to feel or look better by then.

      It could be a marketing strategy.

    17. jason says:

      Navarro is a Democrat, not even an AFL-CIO conservative, so maybe he has an inside on the indictments.

      Or maybe not.

      And please don’t tell me Navarro is not a Dem.

      “Navarro has described himself historically as a registered Democrat, and a supporter of the Clinton-Gore Administration, and a supporter of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2008. He ran for office in California as a Democrat several times and was endorsed by Hillary Clinton. He claims to hold progressive views on many social issues.

      But he is also towards the extreme populist edge on economic and trade policy as a nationalist and protectionist who is opposed to trade deficits and multilateral trade deals. He joined the Trump Campaign as an economic adviser based on the nationalist and protectionist trade and foreign policy ideals advanced by Trump during the GOP primaries”

    18. lisab says:

      Trump strongly hinted that he would run, and the liberal media is focusing on it.
      —————–

      there is no such thing as liberal media. the vast majority of journalists are simply people who wanted a job where they could report the facts of the case.

      do you really think their is some cabal run by a dr. no like character who tells the press to slant the news one way or another?

      or maybe you think having a liberal bias is somehow baked into their genes?

    19. jason says:

      or maybe you think having a liberal bias is somehow baked into their genes?”

      No, it is more like brainwashing by far left professors in far left universities teaching far left journalism.

    20. jason says:

      Cuomo issues statement, was just being “playful”.

      Time to move on I guess.

    21. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      17. I knew Navarro in San Diego. He originally was a Republican, and was an advocate for nuclear energy. As you indicated, he switched to the Democratic Party and ran unsuccessfully for mayor, congress, and city council. In the late 1990s, after his failed political career, he focused on Chinese trade issues. He came into the Trump administration as a registered Democrat, but believed he changed it to Republican later. Given that Trump and Kushner were once Democrats, am not seeing party registration as an issue.

      Navarro is extremely intelligent; but has an abrasive and combative personality. Am surprised he gets along so well with Trump. If your trying to negotiate a compromise on something, the first step was push Navarro out of the room.

    22. lisab says:

      No, it is more like brainwashing by far left professors in far left universities teaching far left journalism.
      ————————

      any time i see you talking about a dr. no super villain directing all journalists to be mean to republicans

      i am reminded how you deplorables all believe powerful democrats are running pedophile rings

      ok ok there was epstein …

      and all the people who flew down to his island

      including bill clinton

      and the fbi removed dozens of boxes of dvds and pictures from his house … which were all lost … just after he committed suicide

      but that does not prove anything

      you should all just vote for the gop establishment because they are smarter than you

    23. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      A Texas A&M climate study dated March 5, 2000, stated that extreme cold weather events in Texas were decreasing because of global warming:

      “Meanwhile, the expected warming of extreme wintertime temperatures would make typical wintertime extremes by 2036 milder than all but five of the winters in the historic record. Also, trends in extreme temperatures in urban areas are generally as large or larger than those in rural areas, so that extreme heat is an increasing large risk in urban areas and extreme cold is an increasingly remote one.”

    24. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Did anyone just see Maria Bartiromo’s interview with Debbie Dingell(D-MI-Horizontal Favors)?
      It’s a must watch.
      Bartiromo was a bulldog and almost made the Congresswoman cry!
      MARIA FOR PRESIDENT2024!!!

    25. Tom says:

      24. I watched part of it and Bartiromo was a pit bull. I finally had to mute it because I couldn’t stomach how Dingell tried to spin all the pork in the covid bill as covid related.

    26. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      BREAKING: “Iran rejects EU, US invitation to hold nuclear talks; Biden White House says they’re “disappointed”

      Does anyone have any doubt that the Biden Administration will now offer the Iranians billions of dollars of incentives brought to Iran in pallets in the wee hours with Frenchy John Kerry in the lead?!

      #25- Tom
      I missed a few seconds of the Bartiromo/Dingell interview. How did Dingell justify Schumer’s Bridge and Pelosi’s Tunnel?

    27. jason says:

      “In the late 1990s, after his failed political career, he focused on Chinese trade issues.

      He came into the Trump administration as a registered Democrat”

      He supported Clinton as President and then supported Hillary for President, both who opposed nuclear energy btw, so the “he was only a Dem in the late 1990’s” meme is a crock.

      Trump appointed him because they shared the same protectionist and isolationist ideas of the failed AFL-CIO agenda of the last 70 years.

      But you are right, party registration does not matter, Navarro would be an isolationist and protectionist even if he was a Republican, they are a dime a dozen in the R party now.

    28. jason says:

      I am sure Bitter agrees with this, after all, he wants to attack Democrats.

      “Pres. Trump argued that now is the time to select Republican Party leaders who have more energy and interest in attacking “Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats” — who want to turn the United States into a socialist country — rather than spending the using their time and energy attacking him and the GOP electorate that voted for him.

      Pres. Trump called out what he referred to as “Grand Standers” in the GOP, naming Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Pat Toomey, all of whom voted with the Democrats in the Senate to convict him on the Article of Impeachment passed by the House.

      He then named the ten GOP members of the House who voted in favor of Impeachment — Tom Rice, Adam Kinzinger, Dan Newhouse, Anthony Gonzalez, Fred Upton, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Peter Meijer, John Katko, David Valadao — and Liz Cheney.

      Of the Senators, Burr and Toomey have already announced they plan to retire from the Senate at the end of their current terms. Sasse, Cassidy, and Collins were just re-elected in 2020. Romney likely feels safe in Utah, and Murkowski had already been promised by Trump that he would campaign for any Republican who will enter the race against her.

      In the House, Rice has guaranteed himself a primary challenger — and likely a primary defeat — in his very pro-Trump district in South Carolina. Kinzinger comes from an Illinois district that seems to favor moderate Republicans over conservatives, and his seat might be in danger of being eliminated by Illinois Democrats if Illinois loses a congressional seat as expected after the 2020 Census.”

    29. jason says:

      What he should have done is called them media whores.

    30. jason says:

      How did Dingell justify Schumer’s Bridge and Pelosi’s Tunnel?”

      I thought this was a family blog.

    31. jason says:

      Babylon Bee

      Breaking:

      “Biden to grant citizenship to everyone who voted for him”

    32. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – I have reviewed the terms of the truce. You have come close to violating it. If there is a 100% chance that primary challengers to those referenced in 28 will win the General Election, then they should go for it. If it drops below that, it is not worth the risk of putting a Democrat in their place.

    33. Meldrim says:

      Given the discussion from the prior thread, I thought that Jason and Tgca would benefit from this short video:

      https://youtube.com/watch?v=n0-bJPv-2_4

    34. Tom says:

      26. She used the blanket excuse that anything that stimulates the economy is helping recover from covid. National debt and the resultant inflation, and all the harm that causes in the long run (especially those at the bottom of the economic ladder) be damned.

    35. Bitterlaw says:

      While lisab can make arguments that appeal to most at HHR, always remember that she passed twice on voting for Trump. She is a socialist at heart. “Utopian” is just her clever way of not getting roasted here for being a socialist.

    36. Phil says:

      Looks more and more like Beto is going to run against Abbott for governor. I hate that fraud. Beto is such a joke. Makes me almost wish I still had faith in the Republican Party so I could vote against him.

    37. Phil says:

      Man, I love the Babylon Bee.

    38. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – After an extensive review of Texas election laws, I confirmed that you CAN vote against the Democrat. You just go into the election booth and look for the name of the Republican nominee. “Republican” is a synonym for “Against Democrat.” Push the button. Done.

    39. jason says:

      Jason – I have reviewed the terms of the truce. You have come close to violating it.”

      Entering truces with lawyers is tough.

      You are at a disadvantage since they automatically assume they are the ultimate arbiters on terms.

    40. jason says:

      Phil, don’t go for that BS.

      Until there is actually a button that says “vote against X, Y, or Z” don’t fall for this “synonym” crock.

      A vote FOR someone is not a vote “against” anyone.

      In any event, it is moot for me, I am not voting for or against anybody.

    41. Phil says:

      Yes, bitter, I actually could. Operative term being “could” as opposed to will. That’s 2022.

      I will vote straight Republican in 2024 PROVIDING Republicans show me they aren’t still pissing all over me and those like me. That evidence is provided by nominating Trump (don’t expect him to run), DeSantis, or Noem.

    42. jason says:

      “If there is a 100% chance that primary challengers to those referenced in 28 will win the General Election, then they should go for it. If it drops below that, it is not worth the risk of putting a Democrat in their place.”

      Zzzzzz…..

      There is not even a 100% chance that any of them will win the GE, so why should the primary adversaries be held to a higher standard?

    43. Phil says:

      ….and since I doubt very much that the Republican establishment has any intention of allowing the nomination of any of those three I’m pretty certain I won’t be voting.

    44. lisab says:

      She is a socialist at heart. “Utopian” is just her clever way of not getting roasted here for being a socialist.
      ——————————-

      i am a utopian socialist because i like the principles set out by skinner, as opposed to a democratic socialist or a marxist.

      not that anyone at hhr would know the differences,

      but essentially we don’t like big government or lots of government ownership … or monopolies or huge companies controlling markets either

    45. Bitterlaw says:

      I am willing to drop the percentage chance of winning the GE to 97% for the primary challenger. Since the incumbent is in office, they have already proven they can win the GE. I still think even a 3% chance of a Democrat being elected is an unacceptable risk but I will negotiate in good faith with my A-hole friend.

    46. Bitterlaw says:

      44 zzzzzzzzzzz. You just like spreading other people’s money around from those who earned it to those who did not.

    47. lisab says:

      You just like spreading other people’s money around from those who earned it to those who did not.
      ——————

      actually that is not what skinner advocated

      but you certainly like to pontificate

    48. Bitterlaw says:

      Irony Meter explodes a lisab accuses me of pontificating. Of course, she supported radical Leftist Jill Stein for President in 2016. HHR laps up her anti-Democrat posts like dog treats but gives her a free pass for not voting for Trump if she truly opposed Democrats as she claims.

    49. lisab says:

      i vote for third parties for the very reason the people here complain about third parties, like say libertarians

      i want the establishment to know that i do in fact vote, but i did not vote for them on purpose

    50. lisab says:

      if you did not keep pontificating about what other people supposedly believe

      you would have no straw man arguments left

      you are truly the muzak candidate

    51. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzz. You vote for third parties so you can proclaim how superior you are to those who vote for candidates that can win. I see through your act even if others don’t.

      I have met 3 Hedgehoggers in person. I used to think it would be nice to meet more, including lisab. Why bother? For some unknown reason, lisab turned against me. Jason and Phil are still on the list but I already turned down 2 trips to go to Texas and he won’t come north. Jason is closer but his directions referred to the Kunzer barn and I think it was torn down.

    52. Bitterlaw says:

      I hope that middle-aged lisab has nieces or nephews to be kind to her in her sunset years. It will be lonely for her without children and grandchildren. Maybe she can get some cats.

    53. Meldrim says:

      #45, Bitter, why are you assuming that an incumbent necessarily has better odds of reelection than a new candidate? Yes, the incumbent has been elected to that office previously, but, as with investments, past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. A lot may have happened in the 2-6 years since the prior election, including people moving in and out of the district; heck, for 2022 U.S. House elections in states with more than one congressional district, the district lines themselves will have changed.

      I agree with you that electability matters–a lot–but voters should weigh the respective odds of winning of the two candidates rather than just allocate high odds to the incumbent and insist on at least 97% odds for the challenger. If a GOP primary challenger who matches up better with your views only has a 75% chance of winning, but the incumbent also has no more than 75% odds (because, for example, it’s a relatively competitive district), wouldn’t that be a risk worth taking? And if the GOP incumbent is so out of step with the party that he will vote with the Democrats 50% more often than his challenger would, and would be a prime candidate to switch to the Democrats (yes, I’m referring to the 2010 Specter/Toomey primary), shouldn’t that be taken into account?

      Instead of imposing an arbitrary 97% standard upon challengers that you do not impose upon incumbents, you should look at the big picture and weigh all factors before deciding whom to support in a GOP primary. You will get better results–both electorally and legislatively–than if you reflexively support the incumbent in all but the safest districts.

    54. Bitterlaw says:

      Toomey would have lost the GE in 2010. He based his campaign on the idea a woman could not get pregnant if raped. Not a winner in PA. He refocused his campaign on economic issues in 2016 and won.

    55. Bitterlaw says:

      I disagree with your premise that a challenger has the same chance as the incumbent in a competitive district. Perhaps you missed my point that it is not acceptable to ever risk losing a seat to a Democrat.

    56. Bitterlaw says:

      I meant Toomey would have lost in 2004.

    57. Meldrim says:

      We’ll never know whether Toomey would have won or lost the general, since Specter won the primary. But given results around the nation in 2010, and with Republican Tom Corbett winning the open governorship by 9%, I am as confident that Toomey would have won as you are that he would have lost. If think that Toomey would have run the same campaign in the general as he did in the GOP primary, you are being intentionally obtuse.

      As for it being “not acceptable to ever (sic) risk losing a seat to the Democrat,” I guess that you shouldn’t run for office, since you *might* lose. Sure, any other GOP nominee also might lose, but it is “putting the seat at risk” to give you the nomination.

      Incumbents are not magical. Rick Santorum was the incumbent in 2006, but he got pilloried by the media for two straight years and got shellacked in the general. Do you really think that running, say, Tom Ridge (or Pat Toomey, for that matter) wouldn’t have increased the odds of holding that Senate seat?

    58. lisab says:

      You vote for third parties so you can proclaim how superior you are to those who vote for candidates that can win.
      ——————————-

      i vote for third parties for the reason i stated

      you really cannot help yourself on pontificating about what others supposedly think

    59. lisab says:

      and i did not turn on you

      i have never thought you were qualified to be a congressman

      if you win it would be the very definition of failing up

    60. Meldrim says:

      Bitter, you saying 2010 confused me as well. True, Corbett wasn’t running atop the ticket in 2004, as it wasn’t a gubernatorial-election year. But GW Bush got 48.42% of the vote in PA, which was a pretty good base for the GOP nominee, and Joe Hoeffel was a weak candidate for the Dems. I think that Toomey would have had a 60% chance of winning that year, and a 0% chance of switching to the Democrats the second that Barack Obama needed 60 votes in the Senate (which is what Specter did).

    61. Gordon Allen says:

      Lisa B. As described by you, antipathy to big, intrusive government, and to monopolistic ” private entities ( ” Big Business”), especially with the current managers of same, I’m with you. How is that now described as ” Socialist”?

    62. Bitterlaw says:

      Lisab imposes a higher standard on serving in the House than the Constitution. I am sure that she had no problem with bartender/waitress AOC running. It is just me she denigrates.

    63. lisab says:

      bf skinner was a behavioralist, specializing in positive reinforcement, i.e. rewarding good behavior.

      although we would want a small safety-net for those who could work but choose not to, e.g. here is a bowl of soup — now go away, we consider it a HUGELY bad idea to give more than tiny welfare to layabouts. if you reward laziness, you get more laziness.

      that principle is also true when designing your economy. BIG government and BIG business are rewarded for bad behavior. the highest social benefit to society comes from nearly perfect markets, with a small regulation force to punish those who do bad things, like dump chemicals into rivers.

      for example, facebook and twitter can remove your freedom of speech because they are so big you have no recourse. it would be far better to break them up and make two or three dozen such companies compete.

    64. Bitterlaw says:

      I do not think that running Ridge or Toomey in 2008 would have helped because of one issue – abortion. Democrats in a Presidential year would have crushed Toomey for his pro-life views. In contrast, many Republicans would have abandoned Ridge for his pro-choice views.

    65. Bitterlaw says:

      Gordon – lisab has been playing the Utopian socialist con game since she started here. She embraced the socialist name. It was not imposed upon her.

    66. lisab says:

      I am sure that she had no problem with bartender/waitress AOC running.
      ————————————

      again, you could ask my opinion instead of making up a lie.

      just because a bartender can be a congressman/woman

      does not mean they should be elected

      and just because you have some successful and rich neighbors does not mean you are prepared to lead this country

    67. Bitterlaw says:

      Are you qualified to serve in Congress, lisab?

    68. NYCmike says:

      lisab,

      When compared to those in government already, and especially whichever Democrat he is running against, I believe he would do a better job simply by being a person who seeks less government influence.

      I find Bitterlaw eminently qualified to help govern this country, in both personal behavior and social behavior.

      Best choice out of everyone in that district? Maybe, maybe not.

      If I were to move to Radnor, I would probably be a better choice, but still, he is qualified.

    69. Meldrim says:

      #64, Bitter, I think that you meant 2006, not 2008. That’s when Santorum got crushed. You know, when Pennsylvanians elected supposedly pro-life Democrat Bob Casey, Jr.

      BTW, I looked it up, and Kerry beat Bush in both Lehigh and Northampton Counties in 2004. Those counties were Toomey’s political base–his congressional district included the entirety of those two counties plus part of Montco (which also voted for Kerry over Bush)–and presumably Toomey would have greatly outperformed Bush there had he been the Senate nominee.

    70. Meldrim says:

      Bitter is certainly better qualified to serve in Congress than is the Leftist that currently represents his district. He has both the experience and the temperament for the office, and a philosophy of government far more protective of our constitutional rights than is the recipient of the PA Supreme Court’s theft of the seat.

    71. Bitterlaw says:

      Meldrim – For some reason, we are both screwing up dates of PA Senate races. If you really think that the Democrats would not have made the entire 2004 campaign about Toomey’s “women who are raped can’t get pregnant” comment, one of us does not know Pennsylvania. I think Hoeffel would have beaten Toomey. You don”t.

    72. Bitterlaw says:

      But thank you (and NYC) for the support.

    73. lisab says:

      Best choice out of everyone in that district?
      ———————

      he is not even the best person i have met today

    74. Bitterlaw says:

      You wanted a direct question. I gave you one. Are you qualified to serve in Congress, lisab?

    75. NYCmike says:

      lisab?

    76. lisab says:

      by your definition, yes, i am breathing.

      however, no i have no record of success as a veteran or business person or political maven that would qualify me to be a leader of this country/world.

    77. Meldrim says:

      Or bartender. Or a violent protester. Or a union hack. Or the child or spouse of an elected official. See, Bitter, those are the types of backgrounds that you need to have if you want to be deemed qualified to serve in Congress. It’s not in Article I of the Constitution, but it’s the way it is. Right, lisab?

    78. lisab says:

      as i have said, just because someone can be elected to be a leader of the country

      does not mean they should be.

      electing people with some record of success in the military, or business or a lower office is not a high bar to set for someone who can literally vote the nation into war

    79. Wes says:

      I actually believe Toomey would have lost in 2004. Democrats have traditionally been much less likely than Republicans to split ballots between President and Senate, and Toomey had none of the issues he had in 2010 to buoy him. Hoeffel probably would have squeaked by on Kerry’s coattails. Of course ultimately Specter was a powerhungry opportunist who betrayed the party that had elected him to the Senate five times, but that’s a different story altogether.

      Too late, Nikki, you already made your bed. Now lie in it.

      “Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration and what the party needs to unite behind moving forward. The liberal media wants a GOP civil war. Not gonna happen.”

    81. jason says:

      I will stay out of the PA 2004/2006/2008 dogfight because I lived in Texas.

      I think at the time I supported Specter and viewed Toomey as not electable, maybe because of the abortion stance.

      Now I am sorry I ever supported either one. Such is life.

    82. Phil says:

      Yup, Nikki cut her own throat.

      Too bad, too. I was looking forward to Nikki lecturing us all on how to be sufficiently woke.

    83. jason says:

      She might have a killer campaign message, though.

      If you don’t vote for me you are a racist.

    84. jason says:

      What a surprise!

      “Representative Vicente Gonzalez (D., Texas) on Monday warned that President Biden’s immigration policies will be “catastrophic” for the country and the Democratic Party.

      In an appearance on CNN, Gonzalez expressed growing concern over migrants who have crossed the border ahead of even those who have waited in Mexico while their asylum claims have been processed, in line with the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocol, or “Remain in Mexico” policy.

      He noted that while thousands have waited two years south of the border for their chance to enter the country, that migrants who made it across the Rio Grande Valley recently were processed and released.

      “If that is the message that we send to Central America and around the world, I can assure you it won’t be long before we have tens of thousands of people showing up to our border and it will be catastrophic for our party, for our country, for my region, for my district,” he said.”

    85. jason says:

      This tells me legal Hispanics that voted for him are not crazy about the idea of open borders.

    86. NYCmike says:

      “This tells me legal Hispanics that voted for him are not crazy about the idea of open borders.”

      -Yup.

      Also sounds like legal Hispanics that voted for him understand the concept of ENFORCE EXISTING LAW actually works…….I wonder if they sold their llamas to some old fool?

      TV Ratings: Golden Globes Crater, Headed for Multi-Year Low.

      The steep declines for the Golden Globes are in keeping with a recent trend among awards shows.”

      I guess there are people who, unlike Bitter, do care about being insulted and called racists at these events.

    89. jason says:

      ENFORCE EXISTING LAW”

      Zzzzzz…

      The chances of that happening are about the same as your brilliant idea of 50% cuts in legal immigration.

    90. jason says:

      Meanwhile, 31 million watched Trump’s CPAC speech.

      He didn’t call anyone a racist.

    91. NYCmike says:

      The chances of that happening with a Democrat in office is ZIP, ZILCH, NADA! Yes, I know that!

      Of course, the last 4 years saw an Executive Branch which, for the most part (not all laws were followed), did enforce the laws on the books, and we saw the results.

      For some odd reason, you think NEW LEGISLATION would make a Democratic administration enforce the law….fat chance!

    92. Bitterlaw says:

      OR the Golden Globes sucked because they nominated a bunch of movies and shows very few people had every heard about let alone watched.

      I did watch the first hour because I was curious about the format. Too many technical issues. The only people called racists were the Hollywood Foreign Press for having no black members. But Jason, who is like the liberal who condemns Fox News without ever having watched it, would not know that.

      Jason’s tired “I don’t have to eat….” analogy in….

      I also switched because The Walking Dead was on and Maggie is back!

    93. Bitterlaw says:

      Since I am not a racist, I am not insulted by being called a racists. I would just call them out and say they are full of it. It has the same effect as calling me left-handed since I am not left-handed.

    94. Bitterlaw says:

      I think that lisab would be a good member of Congress although I would not support her Utopian socialist agenda. She is middle-aged so she has sufficient life experience. Her work with mentally ill and traumatized children would make her an effective advocate for these largely ignored youth. She certainly knows how to use Google to pretend to be an expert on every subject. Her time wasted in the Peace Corps is completely worthless but no candidate is perfect.

    95. jason says:

      Bitter is not offended by being called a racist because he is not a racist.

      He is offended by being called a elitist.

      Because of the truce I will not ask why.

    96. jason says:

      Yes, most of the awards are for woke st-ff these days.

    97. jason says:

      Hmm…did someone beat the crap out of Mitt Romney?

      “Mitt Romney, who had bruised eyes and wounds on his lips, told us: “I took a fall” while visiting his grandkids in Boston this weekend. He said he was knocked “unconscious but I’m doing better.” He said he was taken to the hospital and “had a lot of stitches.”

    98. Bitterlaw says:

      I am not offended. It is just inaccurate. You are full of it.

      Perhaps if you lived in the BEST SCHOOL DISTRICT IN PENNSYLVANIA you would feel pride for where you live.

    99. jason says:

      I have taken some bad falls, but “bruised eyes and wounds on lips” are usually not the consequence.

      I have been in some bar fights that did have those consequences however.

      Bitter is not phased by calling him a racist because he knows he’s not a racist.

      Call him a metrosexual and he will argue with you for hours on end.

      Call him a pedophile and he will punch you in the face.

      Hmmm…interesting…

    107. Bitterlaw says:

      Calling me a metrosexual is why you are a clown.

      Calling me a pedophile is accusing me of the worst crime imaginable aside from murder. In some ways, it is worse because it can kill somebody’s soul and scars them for life.

    108. Bitterlaw says:

    111. Meldrim says:

      #84, Vicente Gonzáez’s TX-15, which stretches from McAllen on the border all the way up to exurbs northeast of San Antonio and is over 70% Hispanic (mostly Mexican American), was carried by Biden by only 50.4% to 48.5% over Trump. González faced a close call himself in 2020, beating a largely unknown, underfunded GOP opponent by only 50.1% to 47.1%. So González has some very good reasons to speak sensible about illegal immigration heading into his district, particularly given that Republicans wouldn’t have to do much tweaking of the lines to make the district one that voted for Trump over Biden.

      Then again, Democrat congressmen from the Rio Grande Valley have long tended to be moderates who oppose open borders. With Collin Peterson having been defeated last November, Congressman Henry Cuellar of Laredo is arguably the least liberal Democrat in the House. González is not as moderate as Cuellar, but he may start voting thst way this term in the hopes of getting reelected in 2022.

      IMHO,too bad! Toomey deserved a political thrashing.

    114. Bitterlaw says:

      If he planned on running again, I could see your point. He is not.

    115. Bitterlaw says:

      113. Once again, Jason displays his ignorance of the civilized region of PA. Wawa appeals to all of us regardless of income, religion, or race/ethnicity. As the Deplorable Whisperer he should know that.

    116. Bitterlaw says:

      Sheeple – I know you told us but Inforget. Where do you live? I want to wake up every morning and blame you for something in your state. Also, is there a Sheeple, Sr. posting somewhere else?

    117. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      I live in No. Carolina where the GOP had the good sense to censure Senator Richard Burr due to his impeachment vote.
      It is odd that you want to blame me for events in NC beyond my control, but if that gets you through the day and gives you joy be my guest. Wes is more to blame about happenings in NC than I am!(sarc)

      You will feel better once you either become a Congressman, in which I am strongly rooting for you or find a job/or hobby you enjoy. Having too much time on one’s hands is unhealthy. The mental health issues connected with the pandemic illustrate that point.

      Sheeple,Sr. posts in heaven on Marine blogs.

    118. jason says:

      If he planned on running again, I could see your point. He is not”

      So Toomey does not merit censure and a political trashing “because he is not running again”?

      Geezus.

      Bitter does not mind being called a racist, I guess he doesn’t mind being backstabbed by the people who earned his vote and then did everything he could to disenfranchise his vote.

      And somewhere in the past he said he didn’t believe in forgiveness.

    119. jason says:

      Once again, Jason displays his ignorance of the civilized region of PA.”

      Bitter is not an elitist, he just lives in the “civilized” part of PA.

      It is clear now.

    120. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Maybe Mr. Wissing will post this poll from Mason-Dixon:

      Maybe that could be a campaign meme for Bitter.

      “Vote for Bitter, he will expand civilization into the uncivilized parts of the district”.

    122. jason says:

      County Republican committees in York and Adams counties, for example, have already passed their own censure resolutions, and other local groups have similar votes pending.”

      However, uncivilized parts of the state ARE moving to censure media whore “Gun owners are all criminals Toomey”.

    123. Bitterlaw says:

      Sheeple – I got the sense that your posts are to get Jason to agree with you and blame me for not always agreeing with you. Personally, I think censure votes are a waste of time. The politician remains in office and it just makes them less likely to vote for the things you agree upon.

      We are lucky to have been protected by your dad. It is funny about the use of “Jr.”. My dad is 93 and is still Jr. his dad died in 1951. He could have used IV after his name. My brother is the 5th with the name and my nephew is 6th.

      Nice to see DeSantis heading for a comfortable victory.in Florida. The man is the antithesis of what passes for a Republican these days. He’s conservative and does not spit on those that elected him in order to try and gain favor with the hacks in the MSM. Sort of the opposite of the aforementioned Toomey.

    128. jason says:

      Jason – Did the background checks that you did support also say all gun owners are criminals or just Toomey’s proposed plan?”

      Zzzzzz….

      I already wrote about this but maybe you were getting an organic expresso at WaWa and missed it.

      Criminals, terrorists and kooks don’t care about gun laws or background checks, so basically background checks are an encumbrance on law abiding gun owners.

      However, I do support background checks that bar people who have convictions for prior acts of violence with guns or that committed crimes with the use of a gun, and people that have been clinically diagnosed as being a danger to society from purchasing firearms.

      My specific criticism of Toomey’s proposed plan was that it was a knee jerk reaction to a mass shooting that would have done nothing to prevent future mass shootings, and was designed as a media stunt. It’s purpose was to demonize law abiding gun owners and get Toomey and Manchin the TV coverage they so badly aspire to. Toomey knew his proposal was garbage, he knew it was a sellout to the Democrats, he knew it wouldn’t pass, but he had no problem backstabbing his most loyal constituents like he had no problem backstabbing them on impeachment.

      GFY.

    129. jason says:

      he politician remains in office and it just makes them less likely to vote for the things you agree upon.”

      Ahh, so Toomey is going to vote against conservative causes out of spite because he was censured on impeachment.

      Says a lot about Toomey, doesn’t it?

    130. jason says:

      “Personally, I think censure votes are a waste of time.”

      Translation: let’s make sure Toomey pays no price for backstabbing his constituents and feels emboldened to keep doing it for 2 more years.

    131. Bitterlaw says:

      I do not drink coffee. Never have. I saw your weak attempt to have it both ways so you could support background checks and oppose Toomey at the same time.

      For those not familiar with the important issue of the day, here is Sheetz:

      https://www.sheetz.com/us

      Here is Wawa:

      https://www.wawa.com/

      Jason is closer to a Wawa than I am to a Sheetz.

    132. Phil says:

      Toomey and guns? Just another effort by Toomey to suck up to the MSM by sticking it to conservatives.

      Hey, Toomey. It didn’t work. It never does. The media did everything they could to support your moonbat opponent in 2016.

    133. jason says:

      “I saw your weak attempt to have it both ways so you could support background checks and oppose Toomey at the same time.”

      So all background check laws are exactly the same?

      If that is the case, why would Toomey propose a new one?

    134. Bitterlaw says:

      Toomey is a conservative and will continue to vote in a conservative fashion. He was wrong on impeachment.

      Jason has admitted for years that Trump is not a conservative but now views Trump as the litmus test for conservatism.

    135. jason says:

      Toomey and guns? Just another effort by Toomey to suck up to the MSM by sticking it to conservatives.”

      That is the point.

      Toomey knew his bill would do NOTHING to curb any gun violence or prevent any mass shootings and was just another media stunt to demonize law abiding gun owners.

    136. Phil says:

      Not to pick on Toomey. Hell, we have our own gutless wonder in the Senate by the name of Cornyn. It’s just that he knows he can’t get away with votes on impeachment and guns here in Texas because, unlike Pa, our suburbs aren’t full of squishes – yet. The schools are working on it, however. If Cornyn could get away with it politically he would.

    137. Bitterlaw says:

      The major addition Toomey proposed was that a person on a terrorist watch list or a no-fly list could not have a gun. I agree that terrorists don’t care about gun laws but I would expect that law abiding gun owners are not on those lists, either. Of course, Biden will put everybody on the list but that was not known when it was proposed years ago.

      The sad truth is no laws can protect us. If somebody wants to slaughter my daughter and her friends in school, they will. I think there should be armed guards or teachers in schools. However, that does not prevent the first few victims. It just limits the body count. I hope everybody has as many guns as they want. It won’t change anything.

    138. jason says:

      Jason has admitted for years that Trump is not a conservative but now views Trump as the litmus test for conservatism.”

      Nah, this is BS.

      I have never said Trump is a conservative, much less that I view Trump as any “litmus test for conservatism”.

      And of course Toomey is wrong on much more than impeachment, not that it is a small thing. He was willing to sell out the Constitution to do that.

      By going out 2 days after the election to claim there was no fraud in PA he essentially gave the MSM the “no fraud” narrative, move on, blah blah blah that they ran with.

      Instead of standing with his constituents and doing everything to protect their legal votes, he threw them under the bus so he could be a hero at CNN.

    139. Phil says:

      So the Supremes are considering the legalities of vote harvesting today?

      Another opportunity for Barrett to demonstrate how worthless she is. Still waiting for her to show me something. Hell, show me anything.

    140. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – You were a teacher. How much blame should we put on you? I assume you were part of “the schools.” Why don’t you run for School Board now that you have time?

    141. Phil says:

      There could not have been any fraud in Pennsylvania. Haven’t you heard? Philly Democrats only cheat in primaries.

    142. Phil says:

      Given I was the last person on earth to engage in leftist brainwashing of young minds, none….but then in Texas we aren’t required to be members of AFT or NEA so I didn’t take orders from leftists.

    143. jason says:

      The Toomey bill was rife with Democrat inserted garbage like this:

      “It called for the creation of a commission to study the causes of violence, including mental health, guns, school safety and portrayals of violence in the media.”

      We know what this means. A moonbat commission that would issue all kinds of new anti 2nd Amendment recommendations.

    144. Bitterlaw says:

      That is not what I said. I said that most cases of election fraud in Philadelphia are in Democrat primaries for local and state House and state senate seats because the primary winner always wins the GE. Prior to Trump, there was no need for massive voter fraud for President because Philadelphia just swamped the state from 1992-2012. Phil “Pennsylvania will never again vote for the Republican nominee for President” is wrong again on what I said. He and Jason really have a tough time with “never.”

    145. jason says:

      The sad truth is no laws can protect us.”

      Yes. But taking guns away from law abiding gun owners is not going to make your daughter safer.

      Many mass shootings have been thwarted/interrupted by citizens with legal concealed weapon permits.

      So in that sense gun control laws can make us LESS safe.

    146. Gordon Allen says:

      So far Barrett has turned into Souter faster than Souter turned into Souter. Appears- so far- she must have been doing some serious lying in her interviews.. A colossal disappointment so far.

    147. Phil says:

      Yeah, in 2016 Democrats were so confident they could win without cheating they actually counted the votes in Philly and released them by 11;00 in the evening. They got counted out in a fair election. Well, they took care of that this time by holding the vote back several days to see how many votes they’d need. Well, that was done and you saw the results. That’s now the standard for Pennsylvania. Republicans are a dead duck moving forward in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, that means so are you, bitter.

    148. Bitterlaw says:

      It is great that people with guns can thwart/interrupt mass shootings. That still leaves at least one victim before the attack is thwarted/interrupted. Better than nothing.

      Don’t worry. I would never want anybody to take your guns. On the whole, I am safer without one.

    149. Phil says:

      Barrett was always a fraud. I think she will be good on guns but I’m not even sure about that one any longer.

      …..and Kavanaugh? We went to bat for this guy? Kavanaugh says thanks to conservatives by telling us to FO. He’s got a dinner party to go to.

    150. Bitterlaw says:

      Sorry, Phil. Your predictions of absolute outcomes suck. PA did go red in 2016. None of your guaranteed winners of the 2020 Democrat nomination got it (you get 1/2 credit for Harris).

    151. Phil says:

      ….and got screwed in 2020. Guess what, bitter. Mail in ballots from God knows where, no signature matching, accepting ballots AFTER the election, ballot drop boxes all over Philly and Pittsburg – few if any in rural areas, etc etc.

      Explain how Republicans win anything going forward. Like I said. Dead duck.

    152. Phil says:

      So that’s what we’ve come to now? The Court allowing some people to go to church in one Northern California county?

      Whoopidoo.

    153. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – While you make legitimate points, your failures in past predictions makes your future predictions highly suspect.

      As for the SCOTUS post, you said Barrett and Kavanaugh were worthless. You were wrong on that, too. Don’t worry. I won’t post every Decision where they acted contrary to your believe going forward.

    154. Bitterlaw says:

      Beliefs

    155. jason says:

      Bitter is excited that SCOTUS allows for indoor worship?

      Hallelujah!

    156. jason says:

      Sen. JOE MANCHIN (D-W.Va.), when asked Monday whether he’d ever change his mind on changing the supermajority rule, barked “NEVER!” in response. “JESUS CHRIST! What don’t you understand about NEVER?!”

      Unfortunately, Bitter doesn’t believe that never is never.

      Or is that jason?

    157. Phil says:

      That’s good, bitter. Not posting those will save you half a day at least. You would have been here awhile.

      Too bad the Court didn’t reverse your State Supreme Court a week prior to the election. You might have had a legit election last November. Hell, you might even have had a chance in your own election going forward. If only Amy hadn’t been hiding under the bench in that 4-4 vote affirming the court rewriting election law. Like I said, worthless.

    158. Phil says:

      Yeah, Americans can actually worship. Court really went out on the limb with that one. How courageous.

    159. jason says:

      It is great that people with guns can thwart/interrupt mass shootings. That still leaves at least one victim before the attack is thwarted/interrupted.”

      Not necessarily. Shootings have been thwarted before anyone was killed.

      3/20/2020

      Tulsa World reports a woman allegedly opened fire on customers, “outside a North Tulsa shopping center” about 6:30 p.m., only to be shot dead by an armed citizen.

      Surveillance video appears to show the woman getting into an altercation in the shopping center parking lot, only to leave and allegedly return “about three minutes later.” Upon returning she allegedly, “pulled a gun and opened fire.”

      The concealed carry permit holder returned fire, killing the woman.

      Fox 23 reports Tulsa Police indicating the concealed permit holder, “shot and killed the woman in response to seeing her shooting at people.”

    160. Meldrim says:

      #146, jason, you wrote:

      “Many mass shootings have been thwarted/interrupted by citizens with legal concealed weapon permits.”

      Yes, and not only that, many others were not even tried in the first place because the would-be attacker knew that someone there might have a concealed weapon and take him out before he even started.

      And the same holds true for garden-variety crimes. Crooks are less likely to break into homes in places where there’s a good chance that the owner is packing and have the right to shoot burglars that enter his or her home.

    161. Bitterlaw says:

      A lot of those intent on mass shootings expect to be killed. That is why they leave their rambling e-mails/letters/videos. I want a society where armed citizens can defend themselves and each other. I also know it is an ugly, imperfect world and mass shootings will never end. If I am ever elected, I will defend all of your rights to own as many guns as you want. I won’t own one.

    162. Bitterlaw says:

      160 Zzzzzzzzzzz. Religious freedom is “worthless” to Phil? Prior to Kavanaugh and Barrett, the Decision could have gone the other way.

    163. jason says:

      Anyone else have the feeling Cuomo is being conveniently scapegoated on harassment charges to distract from the 800 lb gorilla in the room, the thousands of unnecessary deaths caused by his nursing home policies.

    164. Phil says:

      Religious Freedom is of supreme importance. It’s stated word for word in the Constitution. The specific case you linked to was a no brainer. Quit acting like the decision in this case was some kind of watershed ruling.

      This case is the best you can do to prove this Court is conservative? That’s kind of sad. If so you’ve really lowered the bar, but then, there isn’t much else you can point to now is there.

    165. Bitterlaw says:

      166. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I chose the first case I saw. There are dozens every year but there have probably been very few since ACB took the bench. Do you want me to analyze the case on the Federal Tort Claims Act?

      Face it, Phil. You have zero interest in the law or the reasoning behind decisions. You just want conservatives to act like the liberal robots on the Court. You absolutely want SCOTUS to be another legislative body. If you want purely political decisions, become a Democrat. You are already more than half way there since you no longer will oppose them by voting.

    166. Phil says:

      I want the Supreme Court to be a legislative body? Have you lost your mind?

      What absolute drivel. You’ve got it exactly upside down. Conservatives want the Court to follow the Constitution. It’s the left that always wants the Court to serve as a legislative body and create new law. Your new Pennsylvania election laws which were created out of thin air by your state court moonbats – and then validated by Roberts and his buds on the other side is an absolute perfect example of who exactly wants to be a legislative body.

      Robots my ass.

    167. Phil says:

      I wasn’t aware that following the Constitution constituted a political decision?

      You want to see an example of a political decision? Read the bullsh*t Pennsylvania decision concocted by John Roberts….but if he had somehow come down to deterring to the Pa legislature on election law that would have somehow made him a robot?

    168. Bitterlaw says:

      I stand by what I said. You have never read a Supreme Court opinion but you are ready to criticize every decision that did not rubber stamp your political view. Unfortunately, some very bad laws are indeed constitutional.

    169. Phil says:

      And your statement that a conservative somehow believes the courts to be a legislative body is exactly flat ass backwards. It’s absurd on it’s face.

      In addition, it’s good to know you’re on board with the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court rewriting election law and believe that it’s somehow constitutional.

      Just wow.

    170. Phil says:

      Governor Abbott announces that effective next Wednesday Texas in 100% open plus the end of all mask mandates.

      I LOVE MY STATE!!!

    171. Bitterlaw says:

      Show me the post where I said I agree with the decision on PA’s election or STFU. Hint – You won’t find one. Unlike you, I look at cases one by one. I have stated when I disagree with Roberts or any other conservative Justice based on reading their full opinions. You really on a short incomplete summary or tweets.

      You are lying if you pretend that you don’t hope that SCOTUS strikes down every law and EO signed by Biden whether it is constitutional or not. You are as result-oriented as the libs.

    172. Bitterlaw says:

      Really should be rely.

    173. Bitterlaw says:

      I do hope that all of the Dems’ laws and EO’s are struck down for constitutional reasons but if there is no constitutional basis, bad laws and EO’s will likely stand until attacked legislatively after the midterms.

    174. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      If you run a campaign like you comment here on the Supreme Court, you have no chance in your race.

      Just my non-lawyer take on the matter.

    175. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – I suppose that I should pretend that the best way to evaluate a Supreme Court opinion is NOT to read it but to read somebody else’s tweet about it. Thanks for the advice.

      Do you want to hear how to run a trucking company?

    176. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      I have never seen you link to a Supreme Court opinion, or point out sections where you attempt to explain the justices rulings.

      If you do that, I may be able to understand your eagerness to provide cover for certain justices concerning specific cases.

    177. NYCmike says:

      Cuba and Venezuela = yikes

    178. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      It appears that Lisa Murkowski(R-AK) may very well vote for Neera Tandem and give her the vote necessary to be confirmed.
      Strange how Murk could vote for Democrat garbage but when it came to Brett Kavanaugh her reason for voting NO was “he was not the right man for the moment”!
      Almost as depressing in the article is how John Thune(R-SD) is “understanding” of LM’s position and how, today, Moscow Mitch committed to her re-election.

      https://www.politico.com/news/2021/03/02/murkowski-tanden-alaska-472525

    179. Bitterlaw says:

      Use of the term “provide cover” is why we don’t speak the same language. I have said when I disagree with an opinion and why.

      From now on, I will just look at the result and not the reasoning. Or I will agree with whomever tweeted what Phil likes.

    180. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “California Gov. Gavin Newsom appeared indoors at a restaurant in a county where indoor dining is not allowed, but the governor’s office has said he did not dine at the restaurant. He was there to meet with the restaurant’s owners, who received a relief grant, Newsom spokesperson Daniel Lopez told Fox News.”

      So if you go into a crowded restaurant and don’t eat, you won’t get the virus. But if go into the crowded restaurant and eat, you will get the virus.

      Any doubt why this clown may get recalled?

    181. Phil says:

      Murkowski might vote to get tandem through.

      LOL

      Another worthless Republican. I knew it.

      You can piss all over Republican Senators but there will always be enough self loathing Republicans around to bail out Democrats .

      Republican Senators are fighting for you, baby!!

      Die Republican Party. Die.

      The moonbat new Director of OMB sends her thanks.

    182. Phil says:

      Bitter accuses me of wanting the Supreme Court to function as a legislature…..because I criticize a Supreme Court decision that does just that in affirming the Pa Supreme Court acting as a legislature in writing election law.

      You can’t make this sh*t up.

    183. CG says:

      Neera Tanden just got pulled.

      Obviously, she was not going to get Sen. Murkowski’s vote.

      Now, the wallowing may resume…

    184. Phil says:

      Hell just froze over.

      LOL

    185. Phil says:

      Watching Democrats now dropping their hero Cuomo in the grease. One thing about the left. Once someone becomes a liability to the cause they drop them like a hot potato. It’s all about the cause…as opposed to current establishment Republicans who have no cause.

    186. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – Be accurate. I said you want SCOTUS to act like a legislature because your criticisms are result-driven rather than guided by the Constitution because you don’t read opinions.

      For those keeping score at home, at 6:38 Phil called Murkowski worthless and predicted that Biden’s nominee would be confirmed. At 6:56, Phil was forced to admit that he was wrong. That has to be a record for him.

    187. Bitterlaw says:

      Always good to see CG return from celebrating Biden’s victory to visit.

    188. Bitterlaw says:

      https://apnews.com/article/california-car-crash-el-centro-33f54179647c0a7160c527b35163887d

      Very sad. I have no idea how 25 people could be jammed into an SUV.

    189. Gordon Allen says:

      Bitterlaw. Point to me the provision in the Constitution that allows state courts/ executive agencies to establish election law instead of state legislures. You can’t, because there isn’t any
      For once admit you’re wrong; it would go a long way in establishing credibility,as opposed to arguing everything, including whether the sun rises in the East. Phil is right,and you’re wrong on this. It’s no sin.

    190. Meldrim says:

      Remind me, is “CG” Corey the Chicago RINO (and Lorrd Asshat Whisperer) or is he Canadian Cory (who always gave 101% percent)?

    191. Bitterlaw says:

      Corey is from Chicago. Cory is Canadian.

    192. CG says:

      Yeah, I’M the RINO…

      No, Donald Trump is the RINO.

    193. Bitterlaw says:

      Gordon – I said that I disagreed with the Court’s original AND subsequent decisions on PA’s election when they were issued. Do you want a cookie?

    194. Bitterlaw says:

      Corey is only partially correct. Trump a/k/a Democrat Donor is indeed a RINO. However, while Corey used to be a Republican, he forfeited that designation when he voted for Biden.

    195. CG says:

      No forfeit at all. I have always been a Republican and would like to continue to be, but time will tell what will become of the party.

      Voting against Donald Trump is something that many Republicans wound up doing and Bitterlaw would certainly need their support in his electoral endeavors.

    196. Bitterlaw says:

      Gordon – How many Supreme Court opinions (majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions) have you read fully? I am going to set the over/under at 1 and take the under.

    197. Meldrim says:

      Sabathia

    198. Meldrim says:

      Corey, didn’t you vote for Hillary in 2016? You certainly rooted for her with all your might.

    199. Bitterlaw says:

      Corey – You now own Biden’s agenda.

    200. Bitterlaw says:

      Meldrim- I saw what you did there. I thought of this.

    201. jason says:

      Corey is a Democrat troll.

      Just remember that when you read the BS.

    202. Bitterlaw says:

      Corey is not a Democrat Troll. He has been here almost since the beginning of HHR. He supported Republicans before Trump came down the escalator.

    203. jason says:

      and would like to continue to be, but time will tell what will become of the party”

      Zzzzzz….

      Nobody cares.

    204. Bitterlaw says:

      Let’s be fair. Corey did as much as jason in 2016 to elect Trump.

    205. jason says:

      Now Corey is a Democrat troll.

      You can call him whatever you want.

    206. CG says:

      I did not vote for Hillary

    207. CG says:

      I’ve been censured by jason. How will I ever recover?

      In the meantime, he is through as a voter, so I think that is for the best.

    208. jason says:

      BS.

      Corey made Hillary out to be a bipartisan moderate.

      I was clear about what her winning would represent.

      Due to my strong following here at HHR, I am sure I got Trump some votes.

    209. jason says:

      Yep, I am through voting while Corey will continue voting for Democrats.

      Such is life.

    210. CG says:

      I doubt I will vote for many Democrats in the future. I hope not to have to, but jason and some others have made the decision to basically walk away from America, and I do not think America will miss quitters like them much.

    211. jason says:

      I think Fox is trying to get back some viewers.

      Good move.

      “Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has joined the Fox News family.

      Harris Faulkner informed viewers on Tuesday during an exclusive interview with McEnany on “The Faulkner Focus.”

      “It is my distinct pleasure today to welcome Kayleigh McEnany to the Fox family. We will be seeing much more of her in the future,” Faulkner said.”

    212. jason says:

      Corey voted for Biden’s agenda but calls me a quitter?

      I love this place.

    213. jason says:

      Nothing is more “Walk away from America” than Biden’s agenda.

    214. Bitterlaw says:

      I was clear about what her winning would represent and did nothing to stop it.

      I fixed it for my esteemed A-hole colleague.

    215. jason says:

      Walt could learn something from Angela Merkel…

      “My husband does the laundry’

      Angela Merkel was recently asked at a tech conference whether she used smart technology at home, or whether she switched on the washing machine herself. She replied by saying “my husband does that”. Seems like she made a smart choice in husbands”

    216. Bitterlaw says:

      I doubt I will vote for many Democrats in the future.

      Not the strongest sentence Corey could have gone with to re-establish his Republican credentials.

    217. jason says:

      I was clear about what her winning would represent and did nothing to stop it.”

      Not true.

      I used my considerable influence to warn of the consequences of a Hillary victory.

      GFY.

    218. jason says:

      Corey is a Democrat troll.

      Like all trolls, he is happy to find someone who seems to care what he thinks.

      Bitter is a nice guy. He even wants to please the trolls.

      Another reason to vote for him.

    219. Bitterlaw says:

      Walt could learn something from Angela Merkel…

      Walt learned from Ramases III, Hamurabai, Moses, Julius Caesar, Galileo, DaVinci, Locke, Washington, Franklin, Napoleon and many others. Merkel? Zzzzzzzzz

    220. CG says:

      What could possibly be more trollish than someone who tells others on a political blog what they must think but refuses to even vote?

      jason has no loyalty to any political party, or ideology, or even to America itself. He is completely subservient to Donald Trump.

    221. CG says:

      I did agree with something jason said not long ago, but he may not have realized what he said.

      He said he wished there were “100 Bob Corkers in the Senate.”

      I would prefer that too. For one thing, it would have been 100-0 in the vote to convict Trump.

    222. Bitterlaw says:

      I used my considerable influence to warn people who were never going to vote for Hillary of the consequences of a Hillary victory but did nothing myself to stop it.

      Hmmm. Maybe I should stop trying to be a writer and become an editor. Jason really leaves a lot out of what he means to say.

    223. Phil says:

      Jason tells people what they must think?

      Stating one’s opinion is now telling people what they must think?

      Good God.

    224. CG says:

      What’s the point of having an opinion if one does not even vote?

      Quitter is the only optimal word.

      Maybe AuthorMendez has some self-publishing advice for WriterBitterlaw.

    225. Bitterlaw says:

      Bitter is a nice guy. He even wants to please the trolls.

      By telling Corey he forfeited being a Republican and owns Biden’s agenda? I think Corey has been here since 2004 when he was supporting GWB. He was here in 2012 fighting with Romney-hater Robbie. He is a sanctimonious douche but not a troll.

    226. CG says:

      In regards to 2016, when neither jason nor I voted for Trump or Hillary (but still voted, at least in my case), he said far worse things and more personal about Trump (fascist, Klansman, etc) than I did, so I doubt he won Trump any votes here. jason was also clear back then that he thought Hillary would be a better President than Trump on foreign policy.

    227. Bitterlaw says:

      I spoke with an entertainment lawyer today. He recommended self-publishing only as a last resort unless I had a marketing strategy. I did not mention that I could sell at least 5 copies at HHR. Which is more copies of 1776 that Dave sold. Zing!

    228. CG says:

      If a voter came up to Bitterlaw, as a candidate, and asked him if he owns Trump’s record or agenda, we all know he would say he did not.

      I do not think I forfeited being a Republican by any stretch, but if theoretical Republican candidates like Bitterlaw and others want to win, either primaries or general elections, they are going to have to not “write off” people who did not vote for Trump.

    229. CG says:

      Maybe you should make a website for your works or get them put on online platforms like AuthorMendez has.

    230. CG says:

      Also Bitterlaw, if you are truly serious about running for Congress, maybe you should email the Publisher at Politics1.com so you can be listed as a potential (or announced) candidate. Right now, there is not anyone but the the incumbent listed for your district, so that would be the way to get a head start.

      My personal advice, though you probably would not welcome it, is to instead take the employment opportunity in your legal field.

    231. NYCmike says:

      “Use of the term “provide cover” is why we don’t speak the same language. I have said when I disagree with an opinion and why.”

      -Sorry, Bitterlaw, I must have missed the explanations of your agreements or disagreements when you wrote them on here.

    232. NYCmike says:

      “Always good to see CG return from celebrating Biden’s victory to visit.”

      -“CG” supports:

      Open Borders

      Cancelling of the XL pipeline and other major fracking/oil ventures in the United States

      Dependence on foreign sources for oil

      Feelings determine gender

      China is a friendly nation

      Whites (loosely defined as any person with light skin tone but not an elected Democrat) are racist

      Reparations

    233. NYCmike says:

      More government control of education

      More government control of speech

      Government association with certain private companies to silence particular individuals/groups

    234. CG says:

      Weak attempt. Even for your standards.

      But I understand the need to wallow.

    235. NYCmike says:

      “CG”, of course, says nothing about the situation on the border…….he is opposed to open borders though…..he has said so many times…..and then voted for Biden who is doing exactly what we thought he would…..

    236. NYCmike says:

      Wallow? I don’t think so

      Facts are facts.

    237. NYCmike says:

      Considering that Trump is a private citizen yet you are still trying to imprison him, you are the one wallowing.

      I got up on November 4th, Jan 20th etc etc and went to work.

    238. NYCmike says:

      For a guy who claims to have health issues, you are oddly infatuated with increasing the suffering of President Trump…..do you thinhis paion will help you?

    239. NYCmike says:

      “thinhis paion”

      think his pain

    240. NYCmike says:

      Biden being President has actually helped me get back into my investing work. Back to basics!

    241. Gordon Allen says:

      Bitterlaw. When you know you’ve lost the argument,and have no answer,you change the subject and throw up strawmen. Simple question; the provision in the US Constitution that permits state courts and/ or executive agencies to rewrite election laws; a specific cite to the provision that allows that for a pandemic would be great. BTW I was admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court; you?
      And try for once to honestly answer the question. We both know you can’t. And you won’t

    242. Bitterlaw says:

      If a voter came up to Bitterlaw, as a candidate, and asked him if he owns Trump’s record or agenda, we all know he would say he did not.

      Corey is now “we?” Not as pretentious as Gordon speaking for God but pretty bold.

      I would answer honestly that Trump’s policies lead to a booming economy before the virus, the rapid development of vaccines, more peace and stability for Israel in the Middle East, and 3 conservative SCOTUS Justices and 200 Federal judges. I would also say that border enforcement was the right call but the wall did not get built. If pressed, I will say that his trade policies are right out of the Democrats’ 1930s playbook. If really pressed, I will say that Trump is a small “a” a-hole but effective in delivering on his 2016 campaign promises.

      I can’t stand him as a person. He was a good President. Both can be true.

    243. Bitterlaw says:

      I answered your question when I said I disagreed with their opinion. Did you forget how to read when you put on your white loafers?

      I did not know you were a lawyer. Do you want to give out a citation to the case(s) you argued?

    244. CG says:

      You said you hated Trump, but the “real world sucks” and you had to choose him against Hillary and that you were not responsible for the things he did that you did not like.

      So, same with me and Biden. But that’s fine. I am ok with “owning” Biden’s agenda, if it makes you feel better, because I am glad Trump is gone.

      I did not know that opposing Donald Trump politically lead to is “pain and suffering.” He really is a snowflake,Nonetheless, he should not be imprisoned, unless he is charged with a crime and convicted.

      Also, I am pretty sure the 2020 election in Pennsylvania was conducted in accordance with the law passed by the state legislature in 2019. There are a lot of fake news and urban myths going around, but the election was conducted fairly.

      Trump, from his perspective, should have tried to get people to vote for him by mail instead of getting them to not vote for him by mail, and thus losing.

    245. CG says:

      Here is an article about the election law changes passed in Pennsylvania in 2019. It allowed for vote by mail.

      What exactly is the issue?

      https://www.mcall.com/news/pennsylvania/mc-nws-pa-election-reforms-20191029-5sebng2dtbgqln6xeba7sjqgzu-story.html

    246. Bitterlaw says:

      There are a lot of fake news and urban myths going around, but the election was conducted fairly.

      In Philadelphia, they set up places where you could:

      1. Register to vote.
      2. Receive a ballot.
      3. Fill out the ballot.
      4. Place it in an envelope and drop it in the container for ballots to be counted.

      NO Republican poll watchers were allowed to observe this process because the Democrats who ran them claimed they were not polling places. After Republicans obtained a court order that ordered the Democrats to let them observe, the officials said they had to review the one sentence order for a week. Voting continued.

      I don’t know if even Chicago can top that.

    247. CG says:

      You would have to provide some sort of verification for that. All of that has been debunked.

      As an attorney you should be understanding of the fact that Trump’s lawyers went before numerous courts, where they were obligated to be truthful, and never claimed any of those things. They specifically said they were not alleging fraud.

      This piece touches on just part of what you posted:

      https://www.politifact.com/article/2020/dec/06/fact-checking-false-claims-about-pennsylvania-and-/

      So Bitterlaw, it sounds like you are just trying to get the remaining HHR folks to be nicer to you.

      I genuinely do not believe a person as smart as you believes *any* of those claims.

      Even JulStol, a staunch Trump supporter, has said on here, that the election was not decided by any sort of fraud and that Trump simply lost.

    248. Bitterlaw says:

      You would have to provide some sort of verification for that. All of that has been debunked.

      I live here and heard the interviews of the officials BEFORE the election.

      If I wanted people to be nicer to me I would just stop voting and say all Republicans suck. Or I could post an epic Exit Rant that would get a 500 on the Maxwell Scale. People don’t have to like me. No sane person comes here to be liked. Even insane people like me don’t come here to be liked.

      Maybe lisab comes here to be liked. She is childless and probably does not have enough cats to fill her downtime.

    249. CG says:

      There has to be some reason why none of Trump’s lawyers ever claimed any of these things in front of any Court.

      Of course you know you can say things on a blog and not face any consequence beyond people saying they disagree and saying something dishonest in a courtroom. I do not believe you would ever say anything dishonest in a courtroom.

    250. Phil says:

      Got to give bitter credit for pointing that out. It was a little bit more complicated than just whether mail in balloting was allowed in Pa., Corey. Wasn’t the issue. What bitter just outlined plus the fact that the Pa State Supreme Court arbitrarily changed the law that the legislature had prescribed of no mail in ballots accepted after Election Day to acceptance three days AFTER Election Day. That in itself was a prescription for fraud – how much we will never know but there was no legit reason for the Court to do such a thing. There were some not so legit reasons, however.

    251. CG says:

      Trump acolytes have claimed fraud on blogs. Trump himself claimed blog on Twitter.

      But in courtrooms, Trump’s lawyers insisted they were NOT claiming fraud.

      Gee, either he had really bad lawyers or there is something else going on.

    252. Bitterlaw says:

      One of Trump’s most frequent complaints is that Republicans weren’t allowed to watch Pennsylvania’s largest cities count votes. Trump has said observers were barred from even entering the facilities where votes were being counted.

      Corey – That is from your article but it DOES NOT address the issues that I raised. It only goes to votes being counted. It completely ignores the fact that there were no Republican observers where ballots were being cast for weeks before the election.

    253. CG says:

      How come Trump’s lawyers never claimed in a courtroom that there were no Republican Election Judges allowed during early voting? Is that even the claim you are making?

      Would you have been one of Trump’s lawyers? Would have you had the evidence to state this in a Courtroom?

    254. Bitterlaw says:

      I do not believe you would ever say anything dishonest in a courtroom.

      Damn. If that leaks out I will never get another job as a lawyer.

      Depends on the definition of dishonesty. I prefer “highlighting facts to mold truth.”

    255. CG says:

      Are we talking about Election Judges or Poll Watchers during early voting?

      Did Republicans send Poll Watchers to these sites during Early Voting? If not, that’s their fault.

      When I was a Republican Precinct Captain in the suburbs, we were far more organized by the Democrats, and thus they would be unlikely to have Poll Watchers.

      Perhaps the Philadelphia City Republicans just were not organized enough to have Poll Watchers.. if you think those Poll Watchers would have somehow made the difference in the fact that Philadelphia is a heavily Democrat city and there was going to be high voter turnout in the election and especially before Election Day due to the pandemic.

      What’s next? A claim that the Philadelphia Black Panthers were scaring Trump voters away?

    256. Phil says:

      Haley – Hogan in 24, eh Corey?

    257. CG says:

      There are several I would want before Haley.

    258. NYCmike says:

      In the short time here tonight, “CG” has mentioned Trump more times than I have thought about Trump since November 3rd.

      The issues Biden is pushing thru? NOT A WORD!

      TDS through and through, and he willingly turned his back on the Republican policies of the prior 4 years, along with increased chances for peace across the middle east and elsewhere.

    259. Bitterlaw says:

      Would you have been one of Trump’s lawyers? Would have you had the evidence to state this in a Courtroom?

      I have been very clear – too clear for those who do not like me now – that no evidence of fraud was presented in any state or Federal court in PA because there was never a trial where evidence could be admitted. Facts that support allegations of fraud are not “evidence” until admitted by a judge. That does not mean that the facts do not exist but it is inaccurate to call them evidence in the legal definition.

    260. Bitterlaw says:

      Did Republicans send Poll Watchers to these sites during Early Voting? If not, that’s their fault.

      I already said that the did send poll watchers who were denied access because the Democrats claimed that even though votes were being cast, they were not a “polling place.”

    261. Phil says:

      Yeah, I bet there are. Let me guess, Baker, Kasich, the Georgia SOS, Romney again….

    262. CG says:

      They had every opportunity to claim these things and present evidence in Courts in all sorts of states and *never did.*

      So, you can say something on HHR. You can say it on Twitter. You can say it on a tv interview. You can say it at a press conference outside the Four Seasons Total Landscaping, but if you cannot say it in a Courtroom, and in fact make it clear to the judge that you are NOT claiming those things, you obviously do not have any evidence.

    263. CG says:

      “I already said that the did send poll watchers who were denied access because the Democrats claimed that even though votes were being cast, they were not a “polling place.”

      Claimed on a blog, not claimed in a Court.

      There is a reason why.

      And I do not think you believe that happened at all.

    264. Bitterlaw says:

      Got to give bitter credit for pointing that out.

      No matter how sore they are or how much they spew at each other, A-holes remain close when outsiders poke them.

      Too much?

    265. CG says:

      Are you claiming Democrat poll watchers were allowed and Republicans were not?

    266. Phil says:

      Kind of hard to litigate the facts when the Court does not grant standing to sue. That happened over and over.

      This is one of the myths – that the courts found no evidence of fraud. No evidence was presented because there was no trial regarding the actual allegations.

    267. Bitterlaw says:

      And I do not think you believe that happened at all.

      I have lived in and around Philadelphia for 31 years. I was a Republican committeeman in Philadelphia. I had a list of Republican voters shorter than a C V S P harmacy re ceipt. (inside joke for those who have a C V S). I absolutely believe it.

    268. CG says:

      I want to make sure you are presenting the full picture of what you are alleging.

      When I was involved in the Republican Party, we had people fill out absentee ballots at our campaign offices all the time and they were instructed on how to submit them. Should Democrats have been allowed to be in the party HQ to watch that?

      Do poll watchers need to be present as people fill out their ballots at home?

      Is there an uneven standard? If you are talking about a location where *both* parties cannot have poll watching certificates issued, then the rules are the same for both.

      There are plenty of Republican parts of Pennsylvania, where neither party would be allowed to have Poll Watchers at specific events or locations.

    269. CG says:

      Poll watchers are allowed to be present at official early voting locations, at precincts on Election Day, and as votes are being counted. It is up to the parties to find and certify those poll watchers as they see fit.

      This is a completely different situation than the claim that somehow this relates to someone filling out an absentee ballot.

      The bottom line is that Republicans have great success with absentee ballots (including in 2020) in places like Florida. They should have embraced that in Pennsylvania and other places if they wanted to win in 2020. Instead, Trump warned people to not vote absentee in places like Pennsylvania, and thus he lost.

    270. Bitterlaw says:

      Claimed on a blog, not claimed in a Court.

      I heard multiple interviews in October about it from the people denied access. They sounded credible and I (used to) make my living assessing credibility.

      Are you claiming Democrat poll watchers were allowed and Republicans were not?

      No. The facilities were staffed entirely by Democrats. They did not need poll watchers. Actually, having Democrat poll watchers there would have undercut their argument that it was not a polling place.

    271. Bitterlaw says:

      Poll watchers are allowed to be present at official early voting locations
      BUT THE DEMOCRATS RUNNING THEM DENIED THAT THEY WERE EARLY VOTING LOCATIONS DESPITE THE FACT THAT BALLOTS WERE CAST TO BE OPENED AND COUNTED STARTING ON ELECTION DAY.

    272. CG says:

      Access to what? What is a fair and standard procedure where both parties have “access?”

      Should Bill Belichek have been allowed to have a spy on the Eagles sidelines?

      If it was a party GOTV event, then yes, they are Democrats and they are going to keep Republicans out. The same is the case at Republican events. You keep the Democrats out, ideally.

      This is not the same thing as “voter fraud.”

      There is no evidence of anything happening in Pennsylvania to benefit Democrats that Republicans did not also have access to. They should have worked much harder to get their vote to turn out in the conservative parts of the state.

      Trump was preparing to cry fraud long before the Election. It is why he insisted that unlike Florida, the early voting would be counted last after the Election Day voting, so that he could claim, “hey we were winning, what happened?”

    273. CG says:

      An early voting location where someone stands in a line, takes a ballot and goes into a booth or whatever, and then hands it to an Election Judge, is not the same thing as somebody getting a ballot that they can take home or fill out wherever they want, and then have to sign for and submit themselves, and never has been.

    274. NYCmike says:

      Still not one mention of Biden policies……yup, he is a “lifelong Republican”!

    275. CG says:

      Many of Biden’s policies suck, but I think he will do much better in dealing with the Covid pandemic than Trump did, so that is pretty much the number one issue for many people.

      But even if I wind up disagreeing with 99 percent of Biden’s policies, at least he is not Trump, so thank goodness for that, and I will look forward to the next election, where we can hopefully get someone better in office, while the Trump Quitters wallow on HHR about how horrible America is.

    276. Bitterlaw says:

      Should Bill Belichek have been allowed to have a spy on the Eagles sidelines?

      No. But he did.

      Corey, in your zeal to hate Trump (much of which I share), you are creating things that did not exist. These “election centers” were not run as GOTV events by the Democratic Party. They were official government facilities that were staffed in Philadelphia by Democrats.

      I said months ago that Trump was stupid to not push vote by mail AND in-person voting based upon each voter’s circumstances. I have been saying since 2004 at HHR that there should be no early voting and absentee ballots should be limited to the military, those traveling of state on election day, students (not registered where they attend school), and the old/ill.

    277. Phil says:

      Yeah, Nikki or someone like her. I need someone on Twitter telling me to become less white. Can’t wait.

    278. NYCmike says:

      “Many of Biden’s policies suck, but I think he will do much better in dealing with the Covid pandemic than Trump did, so that is pretty much the number one issue for many people.”

      -This is your main issue?

      Oh Lord.

    279. Bitterlaw says:

      Many of Biden’s policies suck, but I think he will do much better in dealing with the Covid pandemic than Trump did, so that is pretty much the number one issue for many people.

      How? By distributing (poorly) the vaccines developed under Trump’s cutting of regulations.

    280. Phil says:

      Uh, the COVID pandemic will be done soon and it has nothing to do with anything Biden and Kamala are doing differently.

    281. CG says:

      They were not staffed by “Democrats.” You may think the people there are Democrats and you may be right, but that’s not the same thing. I am sure the people who work at government facilities in most of the counties in Pennsylvania are Republicans, in their personal life.

      You are not talking about anything that happened on Election Day. You are not talking about official Early Voting. You are talking about something different.

      Poll Watchers and Election Judges are not the same thing. If it were an official early voting site or where people were literally voting, then both parties *have* to have Election Judges present by law. Poll watchers are allowed, but never required.

      It is up to the political parties to procure these Election Judges and make sure they show up, etc. You probably think the Republican Election judges in inner city are actually Democrats and perhaps that is sometimes the case, but that burden is on the party.

      You have the right to want to limit absentee voting as you described, but that would not be a popular decision with voters at large. Nonetheless, the law is the law, and the law in Pennsylvania clearly allowed for people to vote absentee for any reason they wanted.

      It should not be any sort of surprise that Trump lost Pennsylvania. Even if he won Pennsylvania, he still would have lost the election.

    282. Phil says:

      Wait, I stand corrected. Biden got us a vaccine. I heard Joe himself say there was no vaccine until he got into office. Thought I saw Joe getting vaccinated on live TV in December, but, hey, I must have dreamed it.

    283. Phil says:

      278

      You bet. I can only cringe at who you have in mind as a Republican nominee. Think Jeb can be talked into running again?

    284. Bitterlaw says:

      Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Are you calling me a liar? Then just say it. Would you say that a place where a ballot that is marked, sealed and placed to be counted is a polling place? I would but the Democrats (it’s Philadelphia so don’t play your “” game) who ran the locations said they were not polling places.

    285. CG says:

      Are they staffed by the Black Panthers?

    286. CG says:

      “Would you say that a place where a ballot that is marked, sealed and placed to be counted is a polling place?”

      Sometimes yes, sometimes no. But both parties were allowed to do the same thing clearly by law.

    287. NYCmike says:

      I hope you maintain your good health, “CG”. It seems like your heart is full of hatred for 1 person. I hope your G-D is a forgiving one.

      Cheers.

      Beside, get back to fighting with me. I’m an A-Hole. I ‘ve earned the right to be attacked. He’s not in the club.

    290. CG says:

      Ok, that’s all for now. I will stop by next month, if I feel like it.

    291. Bitterlaw says:

      “Would you say that a place where a ballot that is marked, sealed and placed to be counted is a polling place?”

      Sometimes yes, sometimes no. But both parties were allowed to do the same thing clearly by law.

      NO. THEY WERE NOT. THESE WERE CITY-RUN FACILITIES OVERSEEN BY DEMOCRAT OFFICIALS.

    292. Phil says:

      How about Morning Joe? Or any of those guys in the Lincoln Project. Weaver, maybe. After all, he’s not Trump.

    293. Phil says:

      Next month? Yeah, we’ll all be sure to mark it on our calendar.

      Geez, what a Dick.

    294. Bitterlaw says:

      Are they staffed by the Black Panthers?

      Zzzzzzzzzzzz. I debunked the myth of the “overwhelming Black Panther army” by pointing out it was 2 Black Panther morons who appeared at one polling place where Democrats get 90% of the vote in every General Election anyway.

    295. Bitterlaw says:

      Beside, get back to fighting with me. I’m an A-Hole. I ‘ve earned the right to be attacked. He’s not in the club.

      Sorry. I needed a break. We can pick up our fight tomorrow. I can’t believe jason missed the fun. He probably fell out of his chair when I defended Trump.

    296. Phil says:

      Yeah, I needed a break too. I was running out of ammo.

    297. NYCmike says:

      CCC

    298. Bitterlaw says:

      Aaron Rodgers? Corey is a Packers fan in Chicago? That’s more rare than being a Republican.

    299. CG says:

      Stop the Slander.

      Calling me a Packers fan is worse than calling me a Democrat. You know better.

    300. jason says:

      We lost TrumpisPeteWilson and got Corey.

      No, not an improvement.

    301. jason says:

      Corey is a Democrat troll who voted for Biden’s agenda. Whether he has been here since 2004 is irrelevant. We have other trolls that have been here for years.

      He is probably very excited that Bitter chose to engage him.

      He knows the election in PA was stolen, but in his case the ends justify the means.

    302. Bitterlaw says:

      Despite what he said about me and my niece, I did not want TPW banned.

      I wish MD would return to see whether he approves of what Biden is doing. I won’t bother him on FB since it is the last remaining back channel to that A-hole.

    303. Wes says:

      TIPW got what he deserved, Bitter. We all have conflicts on here and frequently engage in personal attacks during arguments. He crossed the line by attacking you for the tragedy of your niece’s death.

      I’m not sad–at all–Dave banned him.

    304. Bitterlaw says:

      One of my nephew’s friends died of a presumably accidental overdose with the wrong meds mixed together. My bother works at a funeral home and said that there is at least one death a month of young people in their teens and 20s from suicides or drugs. I have heard some “experts” say that young people are under more stress now than ever before. I doubt that but I don’t live their lives. One theory is that because of social media they think everybody else has a better life and they can’t compete. Sad.

    305. NYCmike says:

      #307 – B*llsh*t on the more stress idea, but they definitely have way too much time on their hands to dwell on the bad things, and there is way too much exposure on social media which can cause the insecurities to flourish.

      I am very thankful I had my son in the Boy Scouts, as he has a core group that has stayed in contact through this last year. We have had several campouts and other outings, but the majority of their get-togethers have been online. At first, that bothered me, as I thought all they were doing was playing mindless video games, but my wife alerted me to the fact they were also playing other games like D&D, Pictionary, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, and other games……and quite shockingly, had actual GIRLS included in on the calls/video chats!

      They need to work more, get out and volunteer more, and do more chores, and play more sports or more music. The “stress” levels will decrease accordingly, at which time they will get to adult age, and then real stress will start. Happy Times!

      It never ends, does it? The troops must stay in Washington forever. It’s the Reichstag Fire every day. Troops must stay in the capital and the razor wire must stay up…..gotta keep the optics going to show how dangerous this domestic terrorists are on the right.

      Could any of the BS be any more transparent? …..and yer it goes on day after day after day.

    309. Bitterlaw says:

      Wow. I did not expect that from NYC. I did not say they have more stress. I said I don’t know. I do think that as mental illness has been more recognized, it may have the unexpected result that more people give in to it than prior generations who were told to “deal with it.” That’s how I lived my life. Plus there are now more people taking medications that go badly with alcohol.

      What I know is that way too many people are dying too soon.

    310. NYCmike says:

      Not sure what the “Wow.” was for, Bitterlaw.

      What did I say that was so surprising?

      The “experts”, as you rightly put that word in quotes, also have too much time on their hands, and keep finding more and varied reasons to provide their “remedy”…….which just so happens to be good for their pocketbooks.

    311. Bitterlaw says:

      I did not expect your reaction. I did not expect any reaction beyond sympathy for an increasing tragedy. I am glad your son is doing well. Unfortunately, my brother has worked a lot of funerals for people whose families thought they were doing well. I won’t bother anybody about the subject again.

    312. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      My sympathy is expressed through a desire to offer a solution, as opposed to saying “I sympathize with these children and their struggles.” I hope I don’t sound callous, and I pray every night for guidance to be a good parent.

      I know of a situation where a child is in therapy, mainly due, in my humble opinion, to the parents inability to say “NO” to their child. The child has gotten everything they ever wanted, and it was never enough. I think they just could have used more structure, and more personal attention.

      Also, when close to 50% of children are being raised in 1-parent households, it is not much of a shock to find out that kids are having a tough time. I couldn’t imagine having been raised in that type of situation, and I couldn’t imagine being alone with my child, by choice, and trying to raise him.

    313. NYCmike says:

      “Also, when close to 50% of children are being raised in 1-parent households, it is not much of a shock to find out that kids are having a tough time. I couldn’t imagine having been raised in that type of situation, and I couldn’t imagine being alone with my child, by choice, and trying to raise him.”

      -After reading this last line that I wrote, maybe the children today do have more stress…….of course, there is quite a simple (not easy) solution for that problem.

    314. Bitterlaw says:

      I misinterpreted your intention in your post. I overreacted by calling you a cold-hearted bastard without using those words. I think some young people today are over-medicated and over-diagnosed when, as my dad would say, they just need a kick in the ass. Egg Cremes all around.

    319. jason says:

      Biden tanking on Monmouth polls

      Jan App 54 Disapprove 30
      Mar App 51 Disapprove 42

      That is a big swing. Mostly due to Indies, in Jan were 47-35 and now are 45-48.

      But it is not a surprise to the pollster.

      “It’s probably not a surprise that Biden’s honeymoon period has closed quickly” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

    320. jason says:

      Corey is a Dem troll.

      He got what he wanted, Biden’s far left agenda, but he is still a sanctimonious ass and is still unhappy.

      All he wants is someone to give him some attention.

      You can keep “fighting” him.

    321. jason says:

      What could have been…

      “Republicans came, at most, 43,000 votes from winning each of the three levers of power.

      The number of votes to flip the result was similar in the House. As the Cook Political Report’s David Wasserman noted in light of Tenney’s win, fewer than 32,000 votes could have flipped the five seats that Republicans would have needed to win the House majority — Illinois’s 17th District, Iowa’s 3rd, New Jersey’s 7th, Texas’s 15th and Virginia’s 7th.

      While incumbent David Perdue (R-Ga.) lost the closest Senate race in a runoff last month with now-Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-Ga.) by about 55,000 votes, he previously came very close to avoiding the runoff altogether. On Election Day, he took 49.7 percent of the vote — fewer than 14,000 votes from winning the race outright. That would have foreclosed any chance Democrats had at winning the Senate.

      So, 43,000 votes for president, 32,000 votes for the House and 14,000 votes for the Senate.”

    325. jason says:

      Zzzzz….really dumb take.

      I didn’t say “doomed”. I said the die was cast and we are headed for socialism.

      And the numbers support MY view. Biden should never have gotten 80+ million votes if his ideology was not preferred.

      If the Rs had squeaked by, it would have been a nice reprieve, but a temporary one.

      Unless the educational system is changed, the ideology will continue to shift left, and the elections will reflect that.

    326. jason says:

      If Trump had won, it would have delayed the final outcome, maybe by as much as a decade.

      But they are cancelling Dr. Seuss now, there is no coming back.

      In military terms you can fight a Defense in Depth strategy, where you delay the advance of the adversary, buying time and trying to blunt their momentum, attacking their flanks and maximizing their casualties.

      I have no interest in such a strategy, but I certainly admire those that wish to follow it.

    327. Bitterlaw says:

      I disagree but you already knew that. I expect that the Democrats will overplay their hand so much that there will be a backlash by many voters. One example is young voters. The main Dem proposal to cancel student debt applies to Federal loans. Students with private loans may well rebel and say WTF, the Dems didn’t help me at all. A greater risk for Dems is that some are proposing free college tuition for black students as reparations. Do you think that will endear them to white college students and recent grads?

    328. NYCmike says:

      While I admire Bitterlaw’s fight, and will continue to vote and do my part to help keep the idea of America alive, I do understand jason’s pessimism, as the teachings have been going on for 50+ years now, and will likely continue, as I do not see nearly enough fight in many people, mostly females and those like “CG”, to turn back the clock on the way our history is taught.

      If we are honest, American history sucked for most people. No need to hide from it or get angry when that is pointed out. Where liberals miss the point is that despite the fact that many of the Founders were selfish, racist a-holes, the system of government they created allows each generation to seek to be better. Erasing everything that is offensive actually hides the crappy lives most people lived and undercuts the progress that has been made.

    338. NYCmike says:

      “Erasing everything that is offensive actually hides the crappy lives most people lived and undercuts the progress that has been made.”

      I guess Bitter did not see HR1, the new voting laws the Dems are trying to pass.

      If it does pass the senate, Rs will not win any elections again.

      With the filibuster it won’t pass….yet.

    340. Bitterlaw says:

      I saw it. Bad bill. I would vote against it. However, I see Jason has decided to follow Phil into the old absolute predictions game. I wonder if he saw that Phil’s latest absolute prediction last night was disproved in 18 minutes.

      This is as sick and disgusting as the “woke ” culture gets. It’s simply a combination of indoctrination and child abuse.

      Little boy forced to read redefined ‘GayBCs’ and social media explodes: ‘This is full-on abuse!’

      Bitter- please vote to outlaw this trash when you are in DC. Thanks.

      More outrageous Cancel Culture by the so-called Main Stream Media. Now satirical cartoonists with long track records are canceled for poking fun at Joe Biden.

      Bitter sees nothing, hears nothing, knows nothing.

      Everything is normal.

      Not meant as criticism, actually a virtue.

    350. lisab says:

      the book is not that bad

      not saying anyone should be forced to read it

      but it is not obscene or anything

    351. jason says:

      Maybe now Pence will realize the MSM is not his friend.

      “CNN: PENCE PUSHES BIG LIE IN OP-ED JUST 6 WEEKS AFTER CAPITOL ATTACK”

    352. jason says:

      Pence was a MSM hero as long as he was perceived as being critical of Trump.

      Now that he says there were a lot of voting irregularities and HR1 is a threat to democracy, he is back to being a pariah.

      That is what turncoats like Pat Toomey don’t understand. They will only be admired and invited on moonbat shows as long as they are useful.

    353. jason says:

      Bitter and Toomey hardest hit.

      This TN legislation is the right approach. It punishes those that commit gun crimes, it doesn’t penalize law abiding gun owners.

      ‘The legislation would allow for both open and concealed carrying of handguns for people 21 and older without a permit, as well as for military members age 18 to 20. It also increases punishments for certain gun crimes, such as boosting theft of a firearm from a misdemeanor to a felony and mandating six months of incarceration for the offense, up from the current 30-day sentence.”

    354. Bitterlaw says:

      I had 2 items on my agenda today. Contact 36 agents and take a shower. The shower is now checked off.

    355. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. You must have missed the parts where I said the bill was bad and I do not support it. You must have also missed the last 400 years of American history that shows that nothing is forever. If the bill passes, Republicans willing to fight will do so in legislatures and the courts and in elections. Snipers blogging on the sidelines won’t.

    356. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – If you feel safer with no gun permits, good. It does not affect me in any way since I don’t own a gun. I repeat that everybody should have as many guns as they want.

    357. Phil says:

      “not saying anyone should be forced to read it”

      da, ya think

    358. Phil says:

      “Maybe Toomey will now realize the MSM is not his friend”

      I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    359. jason says:

      You must have also missed the last 400 years of American history that shows that nothing is forever.”

      Huh, actually that is MY point.

      If making data-driven decisions to reopen, loving freedom, and trying to get back to normal is what a Neanderthal would do, then well, I guess you can count me as one.”

    361. jason says:

      Jason – If you feel safer with no gun permits, good.”

      Bitter conveniently missed the part about being hardest hit along with his “All gun owners are criminals Pat Toomey”

      “This TN legislation is the right approach. It punishes those that commit gun crimes, it doesn’t penalize law abiding gun owners.”

      “Feeling safer” is not the point here. The point is 99.99% of gun owners don’t commit crimes with guns, and that demonizing them is not going to keep the very small percentage of law breakers from accessing guns and committing crimes.

      However, if you penalize those that actually commit crimes with guns and steal guns, THEN you might be actually doing something to curb gun violence.

    362. jason says:

      hmmm…

      with his hero “All gun owners are criminals Pat Toomey’ that should read.

    363. Bitterlaw says:

      After much deliberation, I realize that I can no longer hold onto one of my most cherished titles at HHR. With his daily combination of doom and gloom scenarios of America being overrun by every group to which he does not belong while he eats his popcorn and LOLs, Phil has bested me. I now pass the title of Most Depressing Poster to Phil.

    364. jason says:

      Bitter and Toomey hardest hit again;

      “Concealed-carry permit holders are nearly the most law-abiding demographic of Americans, a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center says—comparing the permit holders foremost with police.

      “Indeed, it is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” says the report, titled “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016.”

      The study compared permit holders to police, who committed 703 crimes from 2005 to 2007, and 113 of those were firearm violations.

      The study refers to Texas and Florida, which it says mirror most other states, to compare permit holders with police and the overall population. It used data from 1987 through 2015.

      “We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers,” the report says. “Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10. That is just one-seventh of the rate for police officers.”

    365. Bitterlaw says:

      The irony is that I have never actually said I supported Toomey’s proposal. I have said that no gun law is going to stop mass killings because people willing to shoot up a school are going to do it.

      While I support putting criminals in jail for gun violence, changing the laws probably deters nobody. I doubt that many criminals ever knew that stealing guns was a misdemeanor rather than a felony. They just wanted to steal it.

    366. Phil says:

      USA Today says today is the day that the Trumpees plan on breaching the capital and attempting to take control of the capital. Yep, the plotters are all around us.

      Quick. More troops and razor wire.

      Who in their right mind would buy into this BS – I mean besides Sasse, Toomey, and the rest of the Trump hating establishment.

      What bullsh*t.

    367. Bitterlaw says:

      I repeat again. Own as many guns as you want.

      Jason hardest hit.

    368. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe I should put out a press release that no agent will represent me because I am a Republican. Then I can self-publish and sell 74 million copies.

    369. Bitterlaw says:

      Apparently, every agent is looking for diverse voices. I did send a submission to one that said that since every other agent is looking for diverse voices, a 53 year old white male is now cutting edge. Not sure how that will go.

    370. jason says:

      I doubt that many criminals ever knew that stealing guns was a misdemeanor rather than a felony.’

      Well, the difference is that as a felony they will probably spend more time in jail.

    371. jason says:

      I repeat again. Own as many guns as you want.

      Jason hardest hit.”

      Zzzzz….

      Straw argument of the day, since nobody was talking about “number of guns”.

    372. jason says:

      The irony is that I have never actually said I supported Toomey’s proposal”

      You didn’t say you didn’t support it either, but i am glad you don’t agree with Toomey on gun control.

    373. jason says:

      I now pass the title of Most Depressing Poster to Phil”

      You were never the most Depressing Poster.

      You might have been the most depressed poster.

    374. Bitterlaw says:

      You didn’t say you didn’t support it either, but i am glad you don’t agree with Toomey on gun control.

      I also disagree with his idea that women who are raped can’t get pregnant. He is still better than every Democrat.

    375. Bitterlaw says:

      You were never the most Depressing Poster

      BS. My depressing posts spanned a broad spectrum.

      Sorry, being depressed and being depressing are different.

      As we can see, you are an optimist here and you consistently deride the pessimists. You think the R party’s best days are still ahead, hardly depressing.

      What is depressing is NYC shilling for every deadender ever to run for the senate, advocating for 50% reductions in legal immigration while millions of illegals cross the border, and defending “A nuclear Iran is not a threat Rand Paul”.

      THAT is depressing.

      Something tells me this guy was born high in the Andes, and the thin air affected the ability of his brain to think.

    383. Phil says:

      Hey, it’s not all depressing. There are those millions of illegals set to be Irish Republicans once the Biden immigration agenda is passed and the borders are erased for good.

      …and Schumer doesn’t seem to get it as he keeps pushing for amnesty and citizenship.

      Doesn’t he know all this does is contribute to the emerging Republican Majority. If only we could get bitter to hush and quit tipping him off.

    384. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #381- jason
      The way the Biden Administration has mistreated Texas, the State should now return to its Ruby Red status for election cycles to come! Good for the GOP and bad for the Democrats. Isn’t that winning?!

      Here are the major Biden transgressions against the Lone Star in his six weeks in office:
      1) Invasion of Illegal Aliens without COVID-19 testing
      2) Calling Texans Neanderthals for not surrendering to DC’s dictates on COVID-19 re-opening protocols
      3) Not declaring the whole State of Texas an Emergency during the recent cold snap/power outage

      The GOP has WON a key State for years to come due to the above. WINNING!!!

    385. jason says:

      Corker and McCain voted for impeachment?

      Who knew?

    386. Phil says:

      …plus all those Irish Republicans flooding across the border during the next decade. Imagine the the increase in Republican ballots cast. Yeah, Texas will be a Republican lock for a generation.

    387. Phil says:

      Yeah, but consider Cornyn. He came out against impeachment but that doesn’t keep him from being worthless.

    388. jason says:

      2020 = laws being enforced, jason silent.”

      Actually, no, they weren’t being enforced. The border was still porous under Trump too, and more and more cities and states offered sanctuary and benefits.

      Even under Trump, contrary to your idiotic belief, we are not “winning”.

      https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/05/illegal-immigration-under-trump-projected-to-surpass-obama-era-levels/

    389. NYCmike says:

      Contrary to your idiotic belief, writing a new law won’t make Democrats enforce the law.

      Until Republicans and the American people get serious about immigration laws, what Trump accomplished during his 4 years was a YUGE victory……and the evidence of that is what Biden is doing now.

    390. NYCmike says:

      The Remain-in-Mexico policy was enacted after that article.

      You love to cherry-pick your “facts”.

    391. NYCmike says:

      I took this comment from an investing blog I frequent….struck me how different these red states are compared to up here in the Northeast, and other blue state locales……..I need to get the f*ck out of here!

      “Just generally speaking, imagine life normal and vibrant a few years ago. Now amplify that by a few multiples. Thats how life is down there. Atlantic coast is basically NY/NJ folks and that type of vibe. A recent Post article summed it up well…”NYC is thriving, in Palm Beach”…100% true. You love retail brick and mortar right BG? I kid you not its booming and in good locations there no space and tons being developed. Vacancies are low/non existent in prime space. Whereas you and I could go through the wealthiest NY/NJ/NYC hubs and there’s no shortage of vacancies and space available signs. Hospitality, restaurants down there? Bustling. In the Keys the restaurant parking lots looked like tailgate parties. 2000 people a day are(a figure someone down there mentioned to me so take it with a grain of salt) are moving to Florida. Engage in the exercise of tracking homes that go up for sale on Zillow. I inquired about 6 that listed within 24 hours and 5 were under contract already. My sister works at Lockheed in Orlando and said people are just signing out of work randomly to go see houses because if they wait to the end of the day they’re gone. All the Northeast folks I ran into said they’d wished they’d moved sooner. Evaluate it from a business and financial perspective and I dont even need to elaborate on those benefits…..I really didnt even want to come back and I am a born and raised NJ guy who absolutely loves my current setup here. But boats going in the water in a few weeks and spring is around the corner so it’ll get better. But the mentality down there is just so different from here where everyone lives in fear and is obsessed/consumed with covid all the time…and when you look at the justification for why things arent like that here? And then look at the overall figures and see that Sunbelt figures are the same, if not markedly BETTER than the comparable NE and coastal stuff you just wonder how badly things were bungled and there absolutely will be long term effects on the economy and for everyday folks it will become more and more apparent. When reopening, to a degree you are running a race and many of the Sunbelt states took off months ago and folks here probably won’t be back to normal for a minimum of 6 more months and even then carry the psychological damage of whats transpired for the past year whereas down there its just business as usual and people are free and thriving. The craziest cherry on top was yesterday being back here and going to the supermarket and I observed someone walking with their head down toward a crowd of people and everyone just scattered like cockroaches. At first I laughed. Then I genuinely felt bad for them because the damage is so apparent. There’s still signs up everywhere reminding everybody of everything and it’ll prevent and stunt a return to normal. And like a little kid at Founders Park in Islamorada who was playing with my kids…he was SO SERIOUS, digging hard, determined, to find dinosaur bones in the sandbox. And like the people in the supermarket…I chuckled a little. But I also realized that this issue was fundamentally SO IMPORTANT to him that I would just let him keep doing his thing even though he was wasting his time and just unapologetically misinformed in the purpose of his endeavor. Same thing with the folks in the supermarket…chuckled, maybe smile and encourage them; “go along now….you keep fighting to flatten that curve!”…..People are psychologically driven. I dont think this area is doomed per say….theres still probably money and opportunity here….but the Sunbelt is a no brainer and the runway is long. Like many other trends, specifically in tech, the train was already moving in that general direction, but slowly prior to covid…now its full steam ahead. And its impossible to stop. I prioritized my trip because all my friends down there were raving about it. The same will continue as more and more people up North see their friends and family enjoying quality of life that is simply impossible up here. Its sad, but its true and its opportunity.”

    392. Bitterlaw says:

      Many Irish became Republicans over years once they moved up the economic ladder and the Phils stopped treating them with contempt.

    393. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzz. Let me know when those wonderful places get 4 distinct seasons of equal length but no hurricanes.

    394. Phil says:

      Phil saying illegals not voting Republican is treating them with contempt.

      I love this place.

    395. Phil says:

      Dr. Fauci is really really really really really really mad at my state.

      Boohoo

    396. NYCmike says:

      “Let me know when those wonderful places get 4 distinct seasons of equal length but no hurricanes.”

      -It was more about the energy of the populace, and the desire to live life…….you know “The City That Never Sleeps!” type of feeling.

      I lived in San Francisco, and adjusted quite well to not having to deal with snow and bitter cold…….it was wonderful playing football on the beach on New Years Day, and then going swimming!

      And then golfing the next day!

    397. NYCmike says:

      CD

    398. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – If you are honest, you will admit that I have absolutely opposed illegals coming here and being granted amnesty. You know that. Biden is intent on bringing them here and making them citizens. When that happens there are only 2 choices. Give them to the Democrats without trying to persuade them to vote for Republicans OR try to reach them like every other immigrant group in our history . Maybe we can ask Hispanic Republicans from Texas and other states to explain how to reach them.

    399. Gordon Allen says:

      Nycmike; the problem now is nyorkers etc come down here to Florida,and don’t want to go back this year. Apart from the weather ( naturally), they like what Desantis calls the freedom State of Florida.Hope they remember that in the future.

    400. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t golf. I love winter. It was great to finally have snow again. I don’t want or need a bigger house. After about 3 hours in a boat, I am satisfied. The main thing I missed over the last year was concerts. My wife and I had tickets to Jackson Brown and James Taylor, Goo Goo Dolls, Air Supply, and Bon Jovi and all were cancelled.

    401. NYCmike says:

      Gordon,

      I remind friends, all the time, that move out of state….DON’T F*CK UP ANOTHER STATE! VOTE REPUBLICAN THIS TIME!

    402. Bitterlaw says:

      I went outside today. It was 40 degrees and sunny. It felt like Spring is on the way. I can’t imagine how boring it would be to go outside and it was between 70 and 80 nine months a year. The exception is 3 months of 100 degree heat called Summer. The most miserable weather I ever experienced was in Disney World when it was 100 degrees with 200% humidity.

    403. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      I may well end up in PA, if not in NJ……my problem now is a lot of my $$ are tied up in housing costs. I know I can reduce that by moving…..just a tough move right now with my wife enjoying her work and care-giving for family members. The job could be replaced, but the moving away from family members will make it hard for everyone involved.

      I do see down south as likely in the future……that is if the value$ aren’t blown too much out of the water by the time I try to buy.

    404. NYCmike says:

      “The most miserable weather I ever experienced was in Disney World when it was 100 degrees with 200% humidity.”

      -Went there at the end of May 2007 and it was already like that…but it was still fun to swim in the morning and evening!

    405. NYCmike says:

      By the way, I do love winter as well. I went camping 3 weeks ago, slept out and it was close to 10 degrees at night……balmy.

      Combine that with suffocating government policies, though, and it gets old rather quickly.

    406. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – I am not in business so I don’t deal with suffocating government policies (unless you count COVID and they are hopefully temporary). A lot of people from New York have moved to the Poconos and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. More winter and less Summer but you can live on a lake but still be in NYC in about 2 1/2 hours.

    407. Phil says:

      Bitter, first I’ve never said and don’t believe you support illegals coming here. Second, if the left and the Republican establishment are successful legalizing and conferring citizenship and voting rights to illegals I’m all for reaching out and persuasion. What choice would there be at that point? It’s just that I’m a realist. Once millions of newly enfranchised Illegals are able to go to the polls you can forget it. We’ve been trying to “persuade” blacks for decades. How’s that worked out?

      There is a reason the Democratic Party and left in general is all in on open borders….and you are naive if you believe it’s because of intense concern (or any concern at all for that matter) for the poor Mexican or Central American worker trying to provide for his family. The numbers will overwhelm Republicans immediately. I can tell you exactly what happens to red Texas….and try cobbling together 270 electoral votes or a Republican Senate with a blue Texas.

      Sometimes you have to just face reality and things as they are and not as you wish they would be.

    408. NYCmike says:

      I still live in NYC, so I have city tax, state tax, then employed in NJ, so that state tax as well.

      Also, property taxes in NYC used to be very low compared to NJ……they just keep going up every year, even more than NJ, which is quite high. Add in 3-4 protest marches through my neighborhood, mainly because it is one of the last remaining Republican areas in NYC…..I’ll continue to fight, but NJ or another state may be more receptive to my support.

    409. NYCmike says:

      The Poconos is appealing….have a lot of friends that go up there already.

    410. Bitterlaw says:

      Sometimes you have to just face reality and things as they are and not as you wish they would be.

      Which is exactly why I am not as gloomy as you. The reality is that most of the illegals coming here bust their asses at jobs that other people won’t do for pathetic wages. I have seen them in hundreds of cases. I do not believe that people who worked illegally under the table to support their families will suddenly put down their hammers, shovels, or mops to sit around all day watching Telemundo.

      What you think about illegals is nothing that was not said about those stupid, lazy drunk Irish 150 years ago. The only difference is that there was no safety net back then but my ancestors in the mines would not have taken advantage if there was one. They valued work.

    411. Phil says:

      I also never said illegals never values work or want to “sit around” so knock it off.

      All I’m telling you is how they will vote once they get the ballot. You think for one minute Democrats would b pulling out all the stops to get them voting rights if there was any question about it? You can’t argue otherwise with a straight face.

    412. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      NOBODY said they were lazy.

    413. Bitterlaw says:

      So after the Democrats bring in millions of voters we turn it against them. Not easy but not impossible

    414. Bitterlaw says:

      NOBODY said they were lazy.

      Then it will be even easier to get them to vote for Republicans like many hard working voters already do.

      Phil – The easiest thing to do is say no or quit. I reject that.

    415. Tgca says:

      Honk! Honk!

      Just passing through.

      The most miserable summer weather I’ve ever experienced is NYC. High humidity and dirty filthy air from all the congestion and smog with concrete heat magnets keeping the city roasting and heat tunnels pushing hot winds due to concrete structures everywhere with very little open space and greenery in the living and working areas. Many buildings are bathed in soot and filth from the heavy traffic in the summer. …and the trash all over the city is enough to make you vomit as it lingers in the air.

      I spent 7 miserable summers there working and rarely ever left the office for lunch, often have lunch delivered…and the city is dead during summer nights too as everyone leaves it except for the poor and those working evenings.

      Philly is similar in the summer. Dirty, smelly, and suffocating. At least DC is a bit more breathable due to its design.

      Florida is hot and humid in the summer but at least you can breathe fresh clean air and it’s not super congested and you don’t inhale exhaust and smell of a filthy city.

      Only the stoopid metrosexuals think big concrete dirty smelly cities are fun in the summer.

    416. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca treats goodbyes like jason uses the word “never.”

    417. Bitterlaw says:

      For those of you who did not know, finding a literary agent is a miserable grind.

    418. lisab says:

      “not saying anyone should be forced to read it”

      da, ya think
      ———————–

      however, schools routinely require students to read certain books, that is not unusual at al.

      i don’t do that, because students do better when they read what they are interested in, but there is such a thing as required readings. (i also never do anything that would get me in the papers 🙂 )

      the book exposes the child to the words,

      gay, bi, cross dresser, coming out, not sure about other words.

      but it will say something like, a bi person likes girls and boys, usually in a rhyme.

      it does not actually mention sex. pretty much the author will make a lot of money pissing republicans off.

      it was a similar thing when “Heather Has Two Mommies” came out 30 years ago.

    419. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      Theoretically, out of 100 new immigrants, how many do you think will vote for the Republican and how many for the Democrat?

    420. NYCmike says:

      ““Heather Has Two Mommies” ”

      Teacher: How many breasts is that?

      Student: 4

      Teacher: If that is your answer, you are a white supremacist and a racist.

      Theoretically, out of 100 new immigrants, how many do you think will vote for the Republican and how many for the Democrat?

      Now or in 2040? You know this is a pure guessing game, right? 2030 75/25 (D/R). 2040 60/40 (D/R).

      Let me guess your answer – 100% Democrat
      Phil’s Answer – 200% Democrat because they will each vote twice.

    422. Phil says:

      2030?

      80-20 if you’re lucky.

      More than enough to flip Texas.

      …and with Texas gone game over.

    423. Bitterlaw says:

      Why haven’t all the Hispanics already flipped Texas, Phil? Is their DNA better?

    424. Phil says:

      Not enough of it.

      Add two million and even being waaay generous with a 70-30 split – instead of Cruz winning over Beto in 2018 by 200K he loses by by 600K.

      Is this really that complicated for you, bitter?

    428. Phil says:

      No bitter, I can count. You refuse to do so.

      It is what it is on the ground in Texas regardless of how much you choose to “fight”. It’s numbers.

      Cubans and South Americans in Florida vote heavily Republican.

    434. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      From Politico:

      “Ascribing Trump’s success in South Texas to his campaign winning more of “the Latino vote” makes the same mistake as the Democrats did in this election: Treating Latinos as a monolith.

      Ross Barrera, a retired U.S. Army colonel and chair of the Starr County Republican Party, put it this way: “It’s the national media that uses ‘Latino.’ It bundles us up with Florida, Doral, Miami. But those places are different than South Texas, and South Texas is different than Los Angeles. Here, people don’t say we’re Mexican American. We say we’re Tejanos.””

    435. Bitterlaw says:

    436. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Hispanic and Asians voters played a major role in defeating the ballot measure that would restore affirmative action in California. From The Hill:

      “It is noteworthy that despite every major Latino organization promoting Prop 16, every single majority-Hispanic county voted against it. That might be because there has been a significant rise in the number of Hispanics attending the University of California system without the benefit of affirmative action. Records show Latinos accounting for 34 percent of all UC admissions in 2019, up from 14 percent in 1996.

      Hispanics constitute some 39 percent of California’s population, and represented more than half of all high school graduates in 2018. Consequently, the group remains underrepresented in the university system, but they have clearly made significant progress.

      Asian Americans also turned out to oppose Prop 16. Asians make up roughly 15 percent of California’s population, and in 2019 accounted for 36 percent of UC admissions. That group would have unquestionably been disadvantaged by changing the system.”

      A major political development that is taking place which will have a broad impact on future politics is Asian and Hispanic voters are beginning to vote more for Republican candidates, and rejecting a lot of liberal propositions.

    437. NYCmike says:

      “Let me guess your answer – 100% Democrat”

      -Incorrect.

      My point is this – even if Republicans do a great job, say get to having new immigrants come over to Republican Party at a 40% clip. The Democrats still get 60%. And 40% is great for Republicans!!

      YOUR 2 million new immigrants a year = 1.2 million Dems, 800K Republicans. And again, that’s doing a great job!

      Every year we let those numbers in, we need to convert more and more current Democrats to the Republican Party, which is very hard work.

      The numbers eventually get to be too large, like the national debt will eventually be an issue.

    438. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – I assumed you meant if the illegal aliens became legal. I prefer SDC’s analysis to yours.

    451. Meldrim says:

      Phil, do you know how stupid you sound when you say that Texas becoming more competitive is evidence that Hispanic immigrants turn Republican states into Democratic states? Have you even looked at the county results in your home state? The only reason why Texas is voting more Democrat is because white Anglos in the Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio metro areas are voting less Republican. Heavily Hispanic counties are voting more Republican than at any time in the past century. The fact that you assume that it was the Mexicans that made Texas competitive shows that you are not analyzing facts, but rather talking out of your aß based on deeply rooted prejudices.

      And your Jeremiad about how additional minorities voting will spell the end of the Republican Party’s chances of ever winning again reminds me of what so many conservatives said about Florida less than two years ago. Voters in FL (stupidly) amended their state constitution to give felons the right to vote automatically and immediately after they had met all conditions of their sentence. Because the law would enfranchise a group that was disproportionately minority, doomsayers proclaimed FL to be a safe Democrat state. Well, in 2020, minorities cast a higher percentage of the state’s vote than ever before and President Trump’s statewide vote percentage was over 2% higher than all but one presidential candidate over the past thirty years (and he was less than 1% behind Bush’s 2004 vote percentage). Trump improved his margin in every single district with a large minority percentage, and Republicans picked up two U .S. House seats that are overwhelmingly Hispanic.

      Texas and Florida prove that your arguments don’t hold water, Phil. But you’ve been shown this again and again, and you still clutch to your “it’s all those dirty immigrants’ fault” crutch. You remind me of the athlete that, when his exasperated coach asked him “Why do you keep doing it wrong? Is is ignorance? Apathy?” replied “Coach, I don’t know, and I don’t care.”

      If it weren’t for Messy and a couple of other trollls stopping by once in a while, you would be the dumbest person on HHR.

    452. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      455. I believe economic status is a more important determinative of how someone votes than demographics. Most the Asians I know in San Diego and Orange counties in California are Republican. Why? Because they are part of the demographic group with the highest per person income in the country now. Also have noticed that more affluent Hispanics are likely to vote Republican, especially business owners.

      In the early twentieth century it was assumed Irish and Italians were permanent Democrat voting blocks — but when they became more affluent they began voting Republican. One of the most Democratic groups right now are younger “woke” whites –Why? because a large portion of them are lazy and entitled.

    453. Gordon Allen says:

      Phil’s argument makes sense completely IF the globalist, establishment,country club corporatists ARE the Republcan Party. No minorities will vote for Bitterlaw’s vision of ” going for the suburbs”.
      The Trump/ Desantis/ Noem wing of the Party can compete for those votes. It depends on the face we put forward.

    454. jason says:

      I have always taken the position that “demographics” are not necessarily the GOP killer that Phil believes them to be, but he is hardly “the dumbest person on HHR” for thinking this.

      It is true that legal Hispanics, many of whom are small business owners, many of whom are social conservatives and some who have ideological concerns about the Democrat’s agenda (Cubans, Venezuelans for example) are not monolithic Dem voters and can be “recruited” to the GOP side, as Meldrim correctly points out above.

      Phil is also correct that the illegal Hispanics becoming voters will be a harder sell, and that is because the Dems are perceived as their champions and also as their “sugar daddies”. We know this strategy has worked for decades for the Dems with other “demographics”. We can argue all we want on whether this dependence is “good for them” for not, but the fact is it works as an electoral strategy. The illegals and those coming over the border feel beholden to the Democrats. It is not going to change overnight.

      But of course my view is that it is not the immigrants that will make America socialist, it is the product of the educational system that has now permeated not only academia, but the media, the judiciary, and lately the corporate world. That is where the damage lies, and IMO cannot be reversed.

      Conservatives lost the ideological war. Illegal voters becoming Democrats is just more icing on the cake.

    455. jason says:

      Pence is an ok guy, but I think he is too different from Trump to win the nomination.

      If Trump doesn’t run, most Rs will be looking for a new Trump.

      Put a gun to my head, and I would say DeSantis-Tim Scott or Desantis-Noem would be the strongest GOP ticket.

      Which Owens is that? Candace or Burgess? Neither has a chance and I doubt they have 4% preference.

    456. jason says:

      If it weren’t for Messy and a couple of other trollls stopping by once in a while, you would be the dumbest person on HHR.”

      Ok, Phil, you have an early start on points, but the operative word here is “early”.

    457. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – The race for points is not a sprint. It is a marathon. I thought I had it wrapped up for the year but then NYC came out of nowhere and said that Jason agreed with him. We are back in a dead heat.

    458. jason says:

      Thanks for reminding us that the points system is not based on any one day haul.

      Being compared to Messy Moron is worth a lot of points, but we don’t need to worry about catching up today, which admittedly would be difficult.

    459. Phil says:

      ‘’Dirty immigrants”

      Huh? I should have quit reading there.

      The question yesterday was IF illegals get the right to vote. Newsfash, Meldrim. Illegals don’t vote – yet. Chuck Schumer and the left desperately wants them to. Wonder why that is? Want to answer that one for me? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

      As far as the shift of white voters in the large Texas suburbs having an effect on the competitiveness in Texas that is true. I never said it wasn’t. It’s a separate issue. I can read voting numbers out of Denton and Collin Counties as well as anyone. Jason has said it a million times. The indoctrination in our K-12 and universities is responsible for that and it’s a trend nationally….again, different issue.

      As far as The Hispanic vote in Texas currently it is different in different states. California? 80-20. In Florida you have a different dynamic. Hundreds of thousands of Cubans and Venezuelans who have escaped from socialism. In Texas, Republicans have always garnered 35-40% of the vote. Trump did fine among those voters here. He appealed to working class both blacks and Hispanics.

      A Nikki Haley or Romney type will not. See 2008 and 2012.

      One last time, Meldrim. The discussion was about ILLEGALS voting in the future and their effect. BTW, illegals are a different category from the word immigrants, uh “Dirty” or otherwise.

      I’ve forgotten more about voting trends in Texas than you ever knew. Go tirade elsewhere. You are out of your depth.

      Google trend search comparison between Trump and Biden is interesting. The fact that they are 50/50 on a “normal” non big news day speaks to the enduring power of Trump. Usually the sitting Prez is searched way more than other politician.

      Also the search patterns are inverse of partisan lean meaning red states search Biden more and blue states search Trump more.

    463. jason says:

      I think the Trump surge in minority voting was due to the fact the minority deplorables felt that finally someone was on their side and they felt they benefited from his policies.

      But unfortunately the Pat Toomeys and Brian Kemps who couldn’t wait to rush out and disenfranchise their vote will prevail, and the “win back the suburbs” will be the strategy.

      Those voters are going back to the Democratic party, who may pander to them but at least they don’t insult them.

    464. Phil says:

      468

      Bingo. Exactly. The Toomey, Kemp, Haleys will carry the day. The establishment won’t listen to the Republican rank in file who they actually look down on. Al the progress made with blacks and Hispanics will go down the toilet.

      A DeSantis or Noem would do better with suburban voters in 2024 than 2020 plus hold on to the gains with minorities.

      They aren’t part of the elitists in the Republican Party so forget it. Look for another 2012 result. Romney II – the sequel. Wait for it.

    466. Gordon Allen says:

      Desantis got 17% of the black vote in 2018 because of the Charter School issue. And 45% of the Hispanic vote. I think he’ll do better this time.
      If we get down to real basics,like better schools( not more costly schools), better safety on the streets,more job focus on ” working class” job issues,AND tough stands against ILLEGAL immigration and we can compete more for minority CITIZENS. The establishment wing of the party is utterly clueless in this,which is why they’re certain losers. Not to say don’t try for more of the suburban vote of course,but that CANNOT be the perceived or actual priority.
      The upper class gated community ( ie ” suburbs” where I live is fine with that.

      I meant to include religion as well,as many blacks and Hispanics are Very religious oriented.

      Hispanics are not monolithic and they have many prejudices. Mexicans, Brazilians and then central and South America. In Florida it a lot of the latter group. They don’t relate to blm at all. Not sure about Mexicans but my bet is they are far more democratic than the other two groups.

      I am not in San Diego now, but am hearing the vaccine protocol is a complete fiasco — with five hour waits at vaccination “supercenters” and frequently closures:

      “The downtown super site has dealt with repeated closures, due to local weather, vaccine shortages and kinks in the vaccine supply chain caused by the recent severe winter storm in Texas and other large portions of the country.
      Wednesday’s closure came just hours after the site reopened following a four-day pause prompted by short supply. Only limited operations were underway at the site, with appointments focused on getting people their second Moderna shot before the recommended 42-day window between doses closes.”

    480. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      484. However, never fear, Governor Newsom has come to the rescue. California has set up a website for residents to schedule their coronavirus vaccine. Since California is the home of Silicon Valley, and Newsom claims to be tech adept, what could possibility go wrong?

      “Under the state policy shift announced Thursday,
      “Seeing spots open on 3/1 on @Walgreens for my category, but no second dose appointments are available. And the MyTurn website shows spots, but has an error message after you choose a time,” tweeted Jennifer Lazo.
      Others say the system directed them to vaccination sites with no available slots.
      “There are no appointments in San Diego County. Try it yourself. Put in that you are 65+. It’ll say you are eligible and bring you to a site in El Cajon where there are 0 appointments available,” tweeted another user.
      One irregularity allowed anyone who had registered in the state to book a vaccine appointment in tiny, rural Kings County. Clinics had to turn away residents who had driven in from neighboring counties, and county officials stopped booking appointments through My Turn entirely until the issue was resolved.”

      That is a crock of crap. Many of the POLICIES that Trump implemented during his term that NYC deems so effective could have become LAW under a comprehensive immigration bill.

      For example, it is likely that it would mandated asylum seekers stay out of the US, instead of being allowed in as Biden has reversed the POLICY.
      Sure, the Dems would have tried to reverse it, but it would take 60 votes in the Senate to do so, which they don’t have.

      Certainly it would not have called for citizenship for all illegals and the rules for DACA recipients would have been a lot tighter.

      It certainly would have allowed for deportation of criminals, which Biden was able to stop just by EO.

      So yes, the Dems would have tried to circumvent and annul a lot of the provisions, but to do so would have been a lot harder than what is happening now, where Biden has effectively declared open borders by EO.

      So the argument that what we have now is the same as what we would have had with an immigration bill is completely dishonest.

      We are paying the price for the WE ARE WINNING BS.
      We were never winning, and now the stupidity of the immigration deadenders is laid bare for all to see.

      All they can do now, as NYC is trying with smoke and mirrors is to bleat “well immigration reform would not have worked”.

      It certainly would have worked better than the disaster we have now.

      Just passing through Bishes.

      It’s a disappointing 77 in south Florida today and the sun is starting to retreat behind some clouds with some overcast and expected rain showers on and off the rest of the day, followed by 3 days of mostly sunny weather but with frigid temps hitting only the mid 70s before we return to our norm of low 80s mid next week. At least the humidity is relatively low at the moment so my hair is doing just FABULOUS!

      Ok. Time for me to man-up and brave this harsh weather so off to the aquarium store I go to get supplies for my tropical fish…they don’t seem to mind the wet weather.

      Quick. More troops to DC. More razor wire. The storming of the capital is imminent at any moment. The hordes were beaten back on Inauguration Day and on March 4th, but how long can we expect our heroes to hold out against the Trumpian domestic terrorists that are now encircling the capital building.

      BTW, has the FBI given us their intel on when the next attack is coming? I think I heard that the next day of danger is March 20th. They certainly nailed the attacks on Inauguration Day, during the impeachment trial, and March 4th.

      After numerous rain showers last night, current weather conditions in south Florida dropped to a brisky 65 degrees this early morning with blue skies and highs of only 75 expected today with some cloudiness setting in before a harsh cold front moves in later tonight dropping temps to a bone chilling 64 and with expected highs of only 72 yet sunny tomorrow…so bundle up if you’re gonna spend time outdoors tonight and tomorrow my fellow Floridians.

      …and just remember, no matter how bad it may seem right now, look at the bright side, things will get better for us as the rest of the week will inch back up towards the low 80s with plenty of sunshine and on top of that…we DON’T have to pay any state income taxes.

      FWIW. I braved the brisk mid 60s weather this AM and took the pooch for a 45 minute walk and actually worked up a tad bit of a sweat bundled up in my fashionable short sleeve polo golf shirt and appropriately fashionably accessorized sporting shorts, ankle socks, and walking shoes to help burn off those tofu calories from last night in order to keep my svelte figure during this cold front.

      I ain’t gonna let a bit of winter weather ruin my week and pack on the pounds like fat arses up in the northeast. No siree. I’m taking charge here…so bite me Mother Nature!

      When you lose Maureen Dowd, it’s not good. Of course, she really blames Republicans, too, because they elected Trump. Better than the column are the comments. Liberals tearing each other apart is fun to read. The most interesting defense of Cuomo is that the women who have accused him should have just acted like adults and not felt uncomfortable.

      I’ve had one in my tree in the yard at my south Florida home for years. Many of perty types of birds have visited it over the years and some would sing perty little songs that would wake me up…at like 5AM on weekends.

      I do not wish to attract bears so time to get rid of the feeder. …and here I was worrying about mountain lions getting into the yard and attacking dogs all this time.

      If the defining moment of his Presidency took place 6 weeks into it, does that mean that we are safe from any new actions by Biden OR does it signal that his Presidency is going to be really short?

    523. Bitterlaw says:

      To be fair, maybe we can toss this accuser’s account so that leaves 4:

      Her claims were followed by Hinton, who recalled for the Washington Post about an incident in which Cuomo summoned her to his ‘dimly lit’ hotel room and embraced her after a work event in 2000. Hinton said she tried to pull away from Cuomo, but claims he pulled her back and held her before she managed to escape the room.

      This is a very detailed poll of Texas by the pollster–Dallas Morning News/ UT-Tyler– which showed Biden comfortably ahead of Trump in Texas in its last pre-election poll last year.
      In sum, Cruz and Abbott’s favorability and approval numbers inched down slightly after the recent cold snap. The pollster cannot understand this. They are disappointed.
      Go at this poll, Phil!

      Good point. Presidency already defined, poverty drastically reduced.

      It took Reagan 8 years to bankrupt the Russians and end the Cold War.

      That is why only meteorologists should be governors.

    527. Bitterlaw says:

    528. Phil says:

      Beto now on track to challenge Abbott. His tweet over the last several months are wilder and wilder. Zeroing in on Abbott. Guy is a certified nutcase.

      Damn, I’m almost tempted to actually vote just to send that fool packing….but no, not going to. Fortunately. Abbott doesn’t need me and my fellow breakfast club Trumpers.

    529. Phil says:

      Electricity failed. Got down to five degrees and grid couldn’t handle it. Stayed below freezing for four consecutive days and our systems aren’t built to withstand that load. Five degrees would be a heat wave in a lot of places. If Beto had been governor he wouldn’t have let it get below twenty five degrees.

    530. jason says:

      To be honest, reading these accusations it seems like Cuomo is more of a lecherous old creep than a sexual predator like Weinstein. Not much different from Biden. It seems less than he was trying to force himself into the pants of these women and more like he was living vicariously by getting info on their sex lives and maybe a little touchy feely while at it.

      I know this behavior is not acceptable now, but I am old enough to remember when such behavior was met more with like “ewwww, what a creep” than charges of sexual harassment.

      I have been consistent about this with Republicans, so I don’t want to pile on Cuomo. I derided some of the “charges” against Trump, like “well he invited me for a ride on his airplane” or “he walked into a dressing room at the pageant” or “he kissed me once on the cheek in an elevator”.

      I think Cuomo should resign over his nursing home policy, which was responsible for thousands of deaths. And even then I don’t accuse him of wilful misconduct, I don’t think he intended to kill anybody, just gross incompetence.

    531. jason says:

      Do homes in the usually warm/hot parts of Texas not have heating systems or did they have it but the electricity failed?”

      All of Texas gets cold in the winter. Nights in the 30’s are common in Houston during the winter. Snowstorms are not that uncommon in Dallas, they got 12 inches in 2010. So of course homes have heat.

      What is uncommon is five degree weather, and worse, a freeze lasting for many days.

    532. jason says:

      Yeah, Phil, I know there might be a race or two where you might get tempted to vote. I know I have friends in the York R party that will ask for my vote and I might feel bad for 5 minutes for not voting. But if you look at the big picture, the US is going socialist whether Beto wins or loses.

    533. Phil says:

      Yep, we’re headed down the socialist road and the pace is accelerating day by day. The education system brainwashing combined with total leftist control of the media – news and social has done it’s job.

      Fortunately, we still have freedom fighters like Nikki and Liz to draw a line in the sand. Lol.

    534. jason says:

      “There is no way I resign.”

      – Andrew Cuomo.

      I don’t want to give advice to Cuomo, because I am already an advisor for Bitter’s campaign and it could be a conflict of interest.

      But that type of statement just invites challenges.

      He should say “I don’t see a reason to resign based on these allegations”.
