    1. Phil says:

      I never bought the notion that this recall had much of a chance. Is the governor unpopular? Sure, as unpopular as could be in a one party state….but it’s still overwhelmingly a one party state. Considerably more one party and leftist than even the twenty years ago when Davis was recalled.

      Newsom isn’t going anywhere.

      Disagree! Newsom is going to Hell!

      Maybe not soon but eventually.

      Jason – I need a weather report. Is it raining in York? First pitch tonight in Radnor is at 6:00 and rain will be close by then”

      Sorry, was out with the llamas.

      46 degrees and raining steadily. Should be raining there by now.

    5. jason says:

      47-36 not bad actually.

      If you give 2/3 of the undecided to the challenger you have a tight race.

    6. jason says:

      WTF?

      “VP Harris claims “the lack of climate adaptation and climate resilience” are “root causes” driving the surge at the southern border

    7. Bitterlaw says:

      A little drizzle in the first 3 innings but we got in 6.

      Headed to Williamsport to visit my son tomorrow. Maybe I will see Jason. Once you get past Paoli it all runs together.

    8. jason says:

      “Once you get past Paoli it all runs together”

      Sure does.

      I am 110 miles from Williamsport.

    9. jason says:

      Actually, I am about 30 miles closer to Radnor than to Williamsport.

      Can you smell the stench of Radnor wokeness and white privilege from that distant?

      Michelle Obama says

      Former first lady Michelle Obama said on Friday’s broadcast of “CBS This Morning” that she worried as the mother of two Black daughters, Malia, 22, and Sasha, 19, “every time they get in a car by themselves.”

      Is that like the fear Asian people now have when walking down the streets or on public transportation of being attacked by AA?

      How about the fear of any race driving near an urban area and being car-jacked by AA men?

      How about the fear gay men have of walking through urban areas where they are subjected to physical assault by AA and Latino male bigots?

      Are these legitimate fears too you pandering lefty opportunist?

      I don’t recall her raising these concerns before but let’s jump on the bandwagon to stay relevant.

      If you leave in the morning, you and your buggy can get to my house by the time I get back on Sunday.

    13. Bitterlaw says:

      Can you smell the stench of Radnor wokeness and white privilege from that distant?

      No. But you can smell the No. 1 School District in PA.

    14. Tgca says:

      14

      Oh really? Is that the one with all the future white privileged metrosexuals and radically left Dems in training?

    15. Bitterlaw says:

      How about the fear of any race driving near an urban area and being car-jacked by AA men?

      I never had that fear. I have driven through rough neighborhoods many times if it was the most direct route. I just assume they’ll think I must be an undercover cop – why else would a white guy in an old Jeep drive by. Kensington. North Philadelphia. Diamond Street. The Bronx. Just other roads on the map.

    16. Bitterlaw says:

      Oh really? Is that the one with all the future white privileged metrosexuals and radically left Dems in training?

      Don’t be jealous. It really is amazing how well you can do if you are married, don’t use drugs, or have your first child at 15. Don’t forget to call your mom on Sunday.

    17. Bitterlaw says:

      And before she says it, I am not claiming I do well.

      Don’t say I didn’t do you a favor by making the post you wanted to make, lisab.

    18. Bitterlaw says:

      My daughter showed me the FB page for new students committed to where she will go in the Fall. They all seem so young and with so much life in front of them.

      (Let’s see if Tgca can go one post without ripping them.)

    19. Bitterlaw says:

      It actually makes me a little sad to see how excited those students are. The real world sucks. Statistically, some will be assaulted and there’s plenty of cancer ahead for a group of several thousand people. Probably a few fatal car accidents, too.

      Good thing I was a Resident Advisor before I lived in the real world.

    20. Tgca says:

      So True. You’re really not as stoopid as you often come across for someone who is deemed a failure by many.

      I’ll correct the facts a bit here for you though since you appear to show some signs of early dimentia in your old age most likely attributed to your diet of soda and desire to forget your pathetic life.

      Yeah, my mom got knocked up and then married and had her 1st kid at 16 and thereafter lived a life of poverty and misery but she never drank or did drugs so at least she had some redeeming qualities to offset being a selfish, bitter, unfit mother who outlived 2 loser husbands and one child gone criminally bad despite herself being sickly her entire life so clearly she did not need addiction to feed her pathetic life for which she has not long to live after recent open heart surgery and worsening diabetes, asthma, and severe heart disease.

      Unfortunately her experience was not that different though than some white privileged Jersey women, who resorted to being drunk unfit moms attempting to raise selfish and bitter kids but I guess that happens when you’re stuck in a loveless marriage with no options and worthwhile people around you so you find satisfaction in a bottle.

      But anyways…thanks for the reminder about my mom. I think I’ll forego calling her this weekend and just let her wallow in her pity and misery and illness…I’m sure you can relate to that real well.

      But don’t let that keep you from calling your mom if she is sober enough to pick up the phone…oh wait…you can’t call her, can you? Bummer!

    21. Tgca says:

      19

      No need for me to mock these radical lefties in training.

      They’ll soon be attacking conservatives and rallying behind Antifa and BLM as they push their socialist agendas for the useful idiots they will become after indoctrination by lefty America-hating professors.

    22. Bitterlaw says:

      No need for me to mock these radical lefties in training.

      Except you did.

      My mother had a very loving family. Grew up poor in Harlem (yeah – a lot of Irish there in the 30s and 40s). She was also an alcoholic like her brothers. My dad sat next to her – first at home and then in her hospital room – for weeks when she was fading. He held her hand when she died. They were married 49 years. The only time he broke down was just before they closed the lid on her coffin. He said, “How could you leave me?” I think he aged 20 years that day.

      So I won’t be calling her and I won’t be forgiving her for the destructive path she set my brother and sister and 2 of her grandchildren down with the curse she passed on. I blame her for my niece’s death as much as I blame myself.

      I understand why you won’t call your mom but maybe you could go dance in bars for change in her honor and send it to her for old time’s sake.

    23. Tgca says:

      23

      23

      That’s a really nice story. I could almost feel a tear running down my cheek.

      We should send our life stories to Lifetime TV and they can make a movie of NJ dudes with pathetic unfit selfish mothers and how messed up their kids turned out to be failures and homos.

      I want royalties though to go with my reparations that Radnor town children are pushing the gubbermint for from their white privileged guilt.

    24. Tgca says:

      23

      Again…correcting the record.

      I danced in bars as a child for tips for my alcoholic and drug-addicted father so he could buy more booze not for my mom.

      Glad you’re not my biographer.

    25. Wes says:

      I’m currently watching Kumonosu-j? (Throne of Blood), the legendary Akira Kurosawa’s version of Macbeth.

      It’s a phenomenal movie about intrigue and regicide with Toshiro Mifune delivering a powerful powerful performance as a power hungry noble whose desire to rule the local shogunate throws his country into turmoil.

      Much like the Democrats’ obsessive desire to crush Donald Trump and establish a one-party state in last year’s elections.

    26. Wes says:

      Kumonosu-j?*

    27. Tgca says:

      I’m watching Hart to Hart on Roku. Season 1. 1979

    28. Wes says:

      That’s weird. My phone converts the o with a line over it to a ?.

      ::Shrug::

    29. Bitterlaw says:

      My mom was not unfit. She worked and raised her children, including my disabled sister. She also drank too much. I tried feeling sorry for her. Then I hated her. Now I just try to not think of her. Unfortunately, my niece is buried in the same plot so I have to stop by every few weeks.

      Keep pushing the false idea that Radnor students are all libs. There will be 3 Radnor students at the Naval Academy next year. Several others are committed to ROTC. You did not serve despite being a super genius so those students are doing more for the country than you ever will. You could do a great deal for young people. There must be children and teens you could mentor. You check a lot of boxes – Poor background, Hispanic, gay, crippled, douche…Somebody could benefit from your experience. Instead, you move from place to place. Do you even know what you are running from?

    30. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – I don’t feel like googling it. Did that actor portray Yamamoto in every WW2 movie in the 60s and 70s? Did he also appear in Godzilla movies? The name is familiar.

    31. Wes says:

      He was never in a Gojira movie, Bitter. He did play Yamamoto three times. He was also in Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, and Shogun.

    32. Bitterlaw says:

      I remember him in Shogun. I was 12 when it was on and liked it.

    33. Tgca says:

      30

      Sorry! A drunk for a mother is an unfit mother. I grew up around many of them and had a drunk dad too. It doesn’t mean drunks did not love their kids, just they loved the bottle more. Is that why you’re so f*cked up? You lost out to a bottle? Deal with it you spineless p*ssy. You’re not the 1st one from Jersey with a f*cked up family. Ditto for me.

      I could not serve in the military because gays were not allowed in the military unlike you who was unfit to serve so I guess we’re two peas in a pod.

      Spare me the Radnor nobility stories of your little libs in training infecting the military to help destroy America from within. The military is going woke with all these Biden programs so the Radnor recruits should fit in real well as they help derail the country further into wokeness.

      I moved for career opportunities offered to me, as is quite common in Corporate America for SUCCESSFUL people. Not that you would know anything about that I hear since you can’t seem to keep a job, and if it weren’t for your wife, your kids would be starving or turning tricks for food. Such a good dad you turned out to be.

      I’ve done my fair share of volunteering with the elderly so I don’t need your advice on whom to assist. Besides, I don’t enjoy hanging with kids as much as you do. I prefer the company of the elderly with their interesting stories. Different strokes I guess.

      See how much we have in common…and not.

    34. jason says:

      here will be 3 Radnor students at the Naval Academy next year. Several others are committed to ROTC”

      Translation: although Bitter, his family, his friends and his neighbors are all woke, he has heard rumors about some students who are going into ROTC.

      I think it is very commendable it shows he willing to expand beyond his comfort zone, which bodes well for an aspiring politician.

    35. jason says:

      We have some interesting arguments here at HHR.

      Currently Bitter and Tgca are fighting over who had the worst mother.

    36. Bitterlaw says:

      You can say whatever you want about me. Do not defame young people you do not know.

      Given your upbringing, it is better that you never had children.

    37. Bitterlaw says:

      The successful people I know are not still moving from job to job in their 40s. They build on their success at a company. They also have relationships with humans and not just dogs.

    38. Tgca says:

      38

      You are truly an IGORENT Bish.. I know numerous people in their 40s and 50s who relocate for career opportunities when they have a specific skill set that’s hard to find so companies search and recruit them.

      Unlike you, I do not fear change and cling to one thing or one place simply because it feels comfortable. Some people enjoy traveling about and trying new things. Others clearly are afraid to stick beyond their pinky toe in the water and will never take the plunge.

      Maybe everyone in Radnor stays put because they are afraid to leave the comfort of their racist white privileged community which is the reason you know little of people besides those in your metrosexual circle in the radically left Philly area.

      I know one retired leader who came out of retirement from the Midwest to take a job on the east coast. Considering that person already had a multi-million dollar retirement package from their last job, they did not need the money.

      I also know another leader around 50:who has moved with wife and family twice in the last 5 years across the US for jobs they were recruited for.

      I know probably a dozen consultants taking engagements at different places throughout the US spending up to 2 years away from home and traveling back home only to spend weekends with their spouses and children.

      Sorry that no one finds you worthwhile to recruit you and you don’t want to work with other people who are outside Radnor and might have accents you bigoted POS!

    39. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzzz. Racist and white privileged? Tgclown sounds just like a Democrat.

      I have been unemployed a total of 5 months in 27 years. I was laid off from one job because it was based on seniority. My boss admitted he wanted to get rid of a black attorney hired after me for poor performance but the company did not want to get sued.

    40. Bitterlaw says:

      Lawyers are not nomads. I have been asked to go to firms who represent injured workers. I politely declined. I can’t represent people who think dropping a can on their means 5 years of being paid to sit home.

    41. jason says:

      Ma, we need to switch the bait.

    42. Tgca says:

      38

      You should be the last person to talk about relationships. At least I occasionally socialize.

      You claim you never leave your home or hang with anyone beyond getting together with your teeny bopping entourage to coach them into consistently losing games.

      If you weren’t so close-minded you might have some interaction with adults instead of children who will soon pass you in maturity as they move on and make new BLM and Antifa friends.

      …and why would anyone take any advice from a grown man fascinated with flowers and cats.

      Real men have dogs but I guess there’s a lack of REAL men in elitist racist Radnor.

    43. Tgca says:

      40

      Ummm…you’re the Philly loving Wokester hoping to get the approval of your white privileged racist neighbors who want to be social justice warriors from afar as long as they don’t have to live next to people of color.

      It’s why BLM and Antifa embarrass people like Radnor citizens into submission. Shut up y’all white bishes and listen to our communist agenda and just keep sending us young BLM and Antifa recruits and we won’t come in an mess up your white privileged neighborhoods.

      …Radnor readily complies by sending their kids to lefty universities to be indoctrinated.

    44. Tgca says:

      40

      Ooooh! Secret society meeting with Bitter and his boss about how AA people are unfit as white folk to do the job but we all gotta be woke and Bitter volunteers to take one for the team so wokeism can thrive.

      Too bad you fear stepping outside Radnor, or you could’ve gotten a job at Woca-a-cola and be in all your glory drinking free Woke all day and living the woke dream but that would mean you’d have to move to GA and put up with those horrible southern accents and fake politeness.

      Nah! Better to stay in woke Radnor and conform and continue mentoring our future communist liberal hacks.

    45. Tgca says:

      Ok. I got errands to do. Get my day started.

      Some people get up and have cawfee and eggs 1st thing in the morning.

      Others get up and mock wokesters 1st thing in the morning.

    46. jason says:

      It’s why BLM and Antifa embarrass people like Radnor citizens into submission”

      Now that I agree with. Wokiness is running wild because a lot of people who should know better are afraid to oppose it.

    47. jason says:

      Some people get up and have cawfee and eggs 1st thing in the morning.”

      Not me. I went for sausage, bacon, scrapple AND eggs and cawfee.

    48. jason says:

      But breakfast is ancient history. I am salivating like Pavlov’s dogs at the prospect of pulled pork sandwiches for lunch.

    49. Bitterlaw says:

      Which is it, Tgclown? I am a recluse OR I seek the approval of my neighbors? Both can’t be true. I can’t seek approval of people I don’t see.

      Keep telling yourself you have a great life. Of course, you have nobody else to tell but your dog and they only like you because you feed them.

    50. Wes says:

      I need a couple of buckets of popcorn for this fight.

    51. Tgca says:

      50

      Both can be true you nitwit.

      You seek approval of all those around you. It’s called being woke.

      As for a great life, I never claimed that.

      I just choose not to whine and pity myself all day and learn to adapt to life’s situations.

      As for the attempt to insult me because of my lifestyle, look at your own. You claim you have nothing but waiting for death and hanging out with teenagers.

      How in God’s world does your wife put up with you? I guess she’s too busy at work providing for the family to worry otherwise.

    52. Bitterlaw says:

      Here’s a dedication to Tgclown. It’s about how he spends his nights.

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1Cw1ng75KP0

    53. Bitterlaw says:

      I am not woke. But if I was, how would people I don’t see know that? You should sue Newark and your college for educational malpractice.

    54. Tgca says:

      53

      Awww…Bitter’s life is so pathetic he is infatuated with mine. I really never knew how much impact I had on Bitter.

      My own little groupie! Kinda cool and creepy at the same time.

      I guess no need to worry about him showing up in person though because we know he’s terrified of leaving the comfort of his fellow wokesters in Radnor.

      Maybe if he spent a little more time with his own family instead of watching cat videos on YouTube and hanging out mentoring teens to be socialists who suck at sports, he could find more meaning in his life and his family could find a worthwhile parent-husband role model.

    55. jason says:

      I almost think Bitter actually thinks he is not woke.

    56. Tgca says:

      54

      Bitter waves his lil BLM cap to cars passing his house and his neighbors.

      Here’s Bitter’s lawn sign.

      https://www.signsofjustice.com/products/we-believe-yard-sign

    57. Tgca says:

      Here’s another lawn sign found at Bitter’s home, Radnor property paid for by his wife’s hard work.

      https://www.signsofjustice.com/products/we-believe-women-yard-sign

    58. Bitterlaw says:

      Happy VE Day. Yesterday was the anniversary of the sinking of Lusitania.

    59. Phil says:

      Good God. That sign actually exists?

      Don’t tell me. They snapped that picture in the Philly suburbs? DC suburbs? Frisco?

      You know what would be a great money maker? I suspect they could peddle a good number of those signs in Texas if they marketed them as targets.

    60. Bitterlaw says:

      At least my family talks to me. Unlike Tgca and lisab’s relationship with their families.

      Jason already admitted I do not support BLM or share its beliefs. Try to keep up.

    61. Tgca says:

      61

      Bitter reaching out to my ally Jadon to try and cover his wokeness.

      Did you see 56 moron?

      Most here believe your wokeness even if you don’t.

      You’re like the alcoholic that claims they’re not an alcoholic and can stop drinking any time they want as the reach for their 5th drink before noon.

      You need help accepting your wokeness and we at HHR will do that.

    62. Tgca says:

      60

      Phil

      Yep! These signs actually exist in a variety of styles. I’ve seen a number of them around, especially in some gayborhoods.

      I think they’re top sellers in Radnor too so maybe Bitter can get you a discount as they buy them in bulk there…but I’m not sure if that’s just strategy so BLM and Antifa don’t come to protest in their neighborhoods.

      Radnor folk are like San Francisco libs who support minorities from afar but don’t want those people in their neighborhoods.

      Bitter and his Radnor friends are like Lot from the Bible offering up their daughters to the radical left at universities and BLM and Antifa for recruitment…

      …please take our daughters but please don’t show up at our homes and drive our property values down.

    63. Tgca says:

      61

      Bitter claims his family talks to him. Really?

      Ok. I won’t say anymore on this as some things are just too obvious to point out and come across as overly mean but likely true.

      Notice how Bitter forgets to note that it was LisaB and me that chose to part ways with our family’s while Bitter has no courage to change anything in his life.

      Isn’t this the guy who hated his boss but slaved under him just because the fear of standing up and seeking healthy change? Where did that get Bitter in the long run?

      His wife must have the patience of a saint or just waiting to cash in on the life insurance policy as she stocks him up with more Woke-a-cola. “Here honey, have more sugar water you love so much…and your favorite woke brand too.”

    64. Phil says:

      A former teacher friend went in with others and invested in and started a gun range. I’ve lost touch with him over the last ten or twelve years so I have no idea if he is still involved in that. Anyway, if he is I ought to get in touch with him and let him know about those signs. He could order them in bulk. Targets that his patrons would enthusiastically turn into Swiss cheese.

    65. jason says:

      Jason already admitted I do not support BLM or share its beliefs. ”

      This is true.

      But I also said you were supportive of woke culture and afraid to take a stand against it.

    66. jason says:

      This is discrimination against llamas.

      I certainly would have volunteered Lupita for this important job, all I would ask in return is humble accommodations at the Beverly Hills Hilton.

    67. jason says:

      More than 350 goats were tasked with munching on 13 acres of brush on the campus of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum in Southern California.

      The goats, which arrived Monday, are expected to spend two weeks cleaning up the brush near the library to help prevent fire hazards.”

    68. Tgca says:

      66

      Bitter DOES support BLM and Antifa through his actions. He watches woke sports who actively support BLM.

      It’s similar to the transitive property of equality.

      If A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

      If Bitter unapologetically supports woke sports, and woke sports unapologetically support BLM, then Bitter by association is supporting BLM.

      Same with woke corporations.

      People have a choice to tune out and turn off but Bitter does neither so he is in essence supporting the woke culture.

      Bitter makes no effort to challenge BLM and Antifa except to whine at HHR over and over how he does not support them but I think that’s just because Bitter, being a metrosexual sensitive man, feels the need to show he can think through 1,500 possible sides of everything so as not to offend Radnor people and it’s ilk.

    70. Tgca says:

      70

      Typical of San Francisco and Radnor privileged whites. They try to score points with libs and the woke culture by getting the details wrong since they have no idea what minorities really look like other than categorized by skin color since they support them from afar.

    71. Bitterlaw says:

      I fear change? What exactly would I change? I live in one of the nicest places in the Philadelphia suburbs and the top school district in the state. I have my coaching. I am not taking any more bar exams. My dad has lived in the same town for 61 years. My wife’s parents lived in the same area for 40 years. When the Bitters find where we want to live we stay.

      I do speak with my family. I needed to speak to my niece at least one more time if that is what you meant to say.

    72. Tgca says:

      72

      What Bitter really meant to say is:

      I fear change? What exactly would I change?

      I live in one of the nicest whitest wokest places in the Philadelphia suburbs and the top school district in the state for training white kids to be our future woke socialists leaders.

      I have my coaching of my best friends in the whole wide world to help them transition to young woke socialists.

      I am not taking any more bar exams because I barely could pass it before and sought out the help of JFK Jr for passing tips last time.

      My dad has lived in the same white woke town for 61 years.

      My wife’s parents lived in the same white woke area for 40 years.

      When the Bitters find a safe white woke place where we want to live we stay…we have no need to change our wokeness.

    73. Wes says:

      I don’t know, Bitter. Not living in a place where your car prematurely rusts because of perennial application of snow to the streets to break down annual snow might be something to look into.

    74. Bitterlaw says:

      My car is 11 years old with no rust.

      Passed PA and NJ bars on first attempt.

      So if I don’t move every year I fear change? So if Tgclown every likes where he is and wants to remain there we should mock him for it?

    75. Tgca says:

      74 Wes

      No! Bitter rather live with snow then people with southern accents so just STFU!

    76. Bitterlaw says:

      I like snow.

      Don’t tell Tgclown that Wes and Jason have not moved since they started posting at HHR. He will accuse them of fearing change. Also, don’t tell him Jason’s area is more white than Radnor. (Not counting the illegal farm workers, of course)

    77. Tgca says:

      77

      Don’t tell Bitter that Wes and Jadon are not woke and neither are their neighbors.

      Bitter, like those in Radnor’s sister city of San Francisco think everyone is like them…can we say delusional kiddies.

      Don’t tell Bitter that Wes and Jadon have grown up friends too.

      Don’t tell Bitter that Wes and Jadon actually don’t live off their wives.

    78. jason says:

      Don’t tell Tgclown that Wes and Jason have not moved since they started posting at HHR”

      Not true. I moved from Texas.

    79. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason moved from Texas to PA?

      Phil hardest hit.

      Tgca’s closest attachment is to a dog who would leave if he found better food somewhere else.

    80. jason says:

      zzzz… for years I posted from Tx.

      You know that.

    81. jason says:

      I have posted many times about the campaigns I worked with in TX.

    82. Tgca says:

      80

      Well, at least my dog greets me with enthusiasm and sticks around while it seems like everyone is abandoning you so you seek friendship with 12 year-old girls because by your own admission, you have no friends but I’m sure even the teeny boppers will grow tired of your whining and self-pity as they mature past you.

      Geez! I am surprised your wife hasn’t left you yet you pitiful excuse for a man.

      …or do you guys already have an arrangement where she just stays to spare you further humiliation in your pathetic existence and she’s waiting out the insurance proceeds?

      I could not imagine an intelligent, successful woman would give you the time of day other than out of pity which you thrive on or perhaps she does it out of a sense of duty to the kids so they really don’t see how much of a loser their father really is.

    83. Tgca says:

      79

      This is so upsetting!

      I had no idea my ally Jadon moved from Texas where those awful bigots with southern accents live. Jadon must have been a lonely unhappy miserable loser to move.

      …and here I thought he was just a LaRaza pimping swine-slaughtering meat-eating mental midget who has trouble understanding what NUANCED and NEVER means but I digress.

    84. jason says:

      so you seek friendship with 12 year-old girls”

      Oh Christ, now we will have another 1000 posts from Bitter defending himself from non-existent predator allegations.

    85. Tgca says:

      While Bitter was watching cat videos all day, I actually was catching up with an old friend who lives a few miles away and discussing how nice it is to live in a state where we don’t have to put on airs and give into woke culture to fit in our community.

      I guess I was just feeling lonely because I have no 12 year-old friends to hang out with today and my dog seems content sleeping in my bed on this lazy warm day in South FL.

    86. Tgca says:

      85

      I said nothing about predators.

      There’s nothing wrong with having 12 year-old girls for friends when you’re an overly sensitive whining self-pitying childish person as that fits with that stage of female adolescence. They can all sit and whine for hours together.

      The boys are too interested in video games to join a whine fest with a grown man.

    87. Bitterlaw says:

      I have adult friends. I don’ see them very often. Both can be true.

      You dog’s enthusiasm is based on food. Feed her that garbage you eat for a week. She will greet you at the door and run past you to find a new food source. The only reason she didn’t kill you and eat you is because dogs are carnivores and there is no meat on you.

    88. jason says:

      Tgca, you would have died for my pulled pork sandwiches.

      You make a crease in a 12 inch sub roll and fill it with pork fat from the pan drippings and then layer it with about 5 inches of pulled pork. Some pickles and jalapenos. Washed down with a Troegs double IPA.

    89. Bitterlaw says:

      I also do not have children as friends. I have players.

      Tgclown is confused because his dad probably told him he was dancing for “friends” in the bar for money.

    90. Bitterlaw says:

      I got my lab tests back. My total cholesterol is a tiny fraction of Jason’s. It is probably higher than Tgclown’s because his diet of paper and water is fat free.

    91. Tgca says:

      91

      I am glad your going to be around so I can continue to mock you for your wokeness.

      I’ve lost enough friends in this life so not ready to let you go yet…woke-ass Bish!

    92. jason says:

      Speaking of dogs, Bo died.

    93. Tgca says:

      90

      Yep. Daddy was using me to buy liquor for himself so glad I could oblige to help put that scum in an early grave.

      Bitter still dealing with why mommy loved the bottle more them him.

      I tell ya! We should tag team and go on Jerry Springer or something and do a show on Sewer State parenting and the f*cked up kids they leave behind.

    94. jason says:

      Bitter will continue to mock us because we oppose woke culture and we will continue to mock him for supporting it.

      Looks like one more of those eternal memes at HHR.

    95. jason says:

      My total cholesterol is a tiny fraction of Jason’s.”

      Less is better?

    96. jason says:

      My parents were normal. I have no excuses.

    97. Tgca says:

      89

      Disgusting!

      Shameless carnivore.

      I had one egg and cauliflower frittata for breakfast at a whopping 135 calories with 12 grams of protein, 7 grams of fat, and 5 grams of carbs.

      …and for lunch it was a tasty Dr. Praeger California spicy veggie burger made with 10 healthy veggies at a whopping 130 calories with 6 grams of protein, 6 grams of fat, and 10 grams of carbs.

      …and some snack cheating in between with a quarter cup of apple sauce and a couple teaspoons of fresh peanut butter lightly dipped in blueberry preserves.

      Yummee!

      Now that’s how a REAL man eats!

    98. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t mock anybody for opposing woke culture. I also oppose it. I oppose the idea that me switching from Coke to Dr. Pepper would make any difference.

      Don’t forget that I was the one who posted the link to the conservative response to the 1619 Project – 1776 Unites.

    99. jason says:

    102. Tgca says:

      Uh huh

      …and the tooth fairy is real too.

      Bitter’s motto.

      Get woke! Drink Coke!

    103. jason says:

      I cheated too. Just polished off another huge pulled pork sandwich.

      No, it won’t interfere with dinner. I was going to grill some NY strip steaks outside but it is cold and windy. They will be good fried in Amish butter on a cast iron pan.

    104. jason says:

      “I don’t think anything would make any difference.”

      That is really your view on woke culture. Fixed it for you.

    105. Bitteelaw says:

      Actions by Gov. DeSantis make a difference. Gestures like giving up watching the NFL when your team sucks don’t.

    106. jason says:

      You can’t make this sh-t up/

      ‘This week we have switched to using estimates of the total COVID-19 death rate rather than reported COVID-19 deaths in our analysis. This is based on an analysis of excess mortality comparing observed deaths to deaths expected based on seasonal patterns and trends in the last five years. This switch to capturing the total COVID-19 death rate increases the total number of deaths in the US that have occurred by 58%. Our reference scenario projects declines in the daily death rate through to September 1, leading to a cumulative death count of 949,000 total COVID-19 deaths.

    107. Tgca says:

      Heh! I like organic fresh peanut butter with a tad bit of organic blueberry preserves as snacks every now and then so don’t knock it.

      Often as a young child, when there was not much to eat, my mom would buy peanut butter and jelly or oatmeal because they were cheap and you could stretch them out to last.

      We frequently had them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for long stretches at a time since daddy was not around and the scum wasted any little money he had on alcohol and drugs instead of feeding his 4 kids.

      When I got older I probably did not have either of those foods for well over a decade because the thought of eating them just sickened me to my stomach.

      But I came around in my 30s and started with the occasional organic fresh peanut butter and preserves as spoon snacks because I’m not a big sandwich eater.

      So I do enjoy my occasional peanut butter and blueberry dipped teaspoon snacks.

      Do I eat a whole jar in one sitting? Never! A jar can last me a month or two.

      …and they taste better than lead paint chips peeled off the walls.

    108. jason says:

      Gestures like giving up watching the NFL when your team sucks don’t.”

      Zzzzz….we are back to where viewership and sales “don’t matter to woke corporations”

      This from someone who doesn’t see woke messages in the end zone because the Eagle don’t score.

    109. jason says:

      I like organic fresh peanut butter with a tad bit of organic blueberry preserves”

      BS.

      You are a sugar junkie, blueberry “preserves” are almost as loaded with sugar as your “organic maple syrup”.

    110. Tgca says:

      107

      So what your saying is that under Biden, the same amount of deaths as under Trump.

      This sounds like FAKE news. People are being saved by the actions of Biden. We know that because that’s what they tell us on CNN and MSNBC.

    111. jason says:

      Good news. Cheers.

      “The thought is that moderate amounts of alcohol may have effects on the brain that can help you relax, reduce stress levels and, perhaps through these mechanisms, lower the incidence of cardiovascular disease,” said lead author Dr. Kenechukwu Mezue, a nuclear cardiology fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
      Advertisement

      His team analyzed data on more than 53,000 people in their late 50s, and more than 750 of them had brain scans to detect stress-related activity.

      That included 17% of those with low self-reported alcohol consumption — one drink a week or fewer — and 13% of moderate drinkers — no more than one drink a day for women and two for men.

      Compared to those with low alcohol intake, moderate drinkers had less stress-related brain activity and a 20% lower risk of a major heart event.”

      Uh…blueberry preserves are not made with processed sugar and I only have a smidgen as I do not like very sweet foods, probably because I’m so sweet myself.

      So as they say in tje south “bless your heart” or as we say in the Sewer State

      …GFY you LaRaza pimping swine-slaughtering meat-eating mental midget who has trouble understanding what NUANCED and NEVER means.

      Nothing more woke than supporting the very woke concept that corporations are just too woke to worry about things like viewership, sales and profits.

    116. Bitterlaw says:

      Sales and viewership matters. However, 1 person does not matter. Both can be true.

    117. Bitterlaw says:

      We are in Williamsport. My son wanted to go bowling. It has been at least 10 years since I bowled. I did have a few strikes and spares but I also had gutter balls. I now remember why I don’t Bowl. It is the same reason I gave up golf. I suck.

      I don’t mock anybody for opposing woke culture. I also oppose it.

      Now this is an outright lie. Anyone who refuses to watch sports because of the players’ determination to shove their politics down our throats during the games is “virtue signaling” and “giving the players exactly what they want.”

      You claim to be indifferent to wokeness displayed at sporting events but are certainly not at all indifferent to personal decisions made by others on here to avoid being preached to by people whose job is only to score points.

      No free lunch. You yourself may not be woke, but it’s impossible to tell given your eagerness to engage in Corey-style sanctimony against others for choosing differently from you.

      I think if you engage in Biden Troll sanctimony against others for opposing woke culture then you are woke.

      Accepting woke culture is wokiness IMO.

      I don’t believe in a gray area of wokiness. It is pretty clear if you are for it or against it.

      Wow, Bitter is bowling in Williamsport, incognito.

      I bet you wouldn’t catch him dead at a bowling alley in Radnor, if they even have one.

    137. jason says:

      Good education for Bitter when he runs into his woky friends and neighbors who probably support gun control.

      “The AR stands for Armalite (not assault rifle) because the gun was developed by a company called “Armalite.”
      It is not an “assault rifle.”
      It’s not a machine gun either. It’s semi-automatic. One trigger squeeze gets you one commie stopper.
      They are not used in a majority of mass shootings.
      The Assault Weapons ban of 1994 didn’t keep ONE rifle from being made. It just called for certain gun modifications, like no lug for a bayonet (you know, to curb all the mass bayonet murders), no high-cap mags, flash suppressors, collapsible stocks, and no pistol grips.
      Big, scary AR-15s actually come in many pretty colors. Great Lakes Fire Arms makes one in black cherry. You can find them in camo pink.
      More people are murdered every year by edged weapons (knives, swords, Ginsus, etc.) than by ALL rifles combined (ARs, hunting, Civil War reenactors, etc.).
      More people are murdered every year by feet and fists (Kung Fu, Krav Maga, punches) than by ALL rifles combined.”

    140. Tgca says:

      Dr Fow-Chee thinks we need to use TRUSTED messengers to get the message out on the need for vaccination.

      Look who he turns to as trusted Jesse gets:

      With the U.S. vaccination pace slowing, Fauci said using “trusted messengers” will be an important way to overcome hesitancy in some communities and get the nation closer to an 80% vaccination rate.

      “It could be sports figures, it could be entertainment figures, it could be clergy or it could be your family doctor,” he said.

    141. Tgca says:

      141

      Bitter now allowed to watch woke sports because Dr. Fow-chee considers woke sportsman as TRUSTED vaccine messengers.

    142. Tgca says:

      Dr. Fow-chee, quoted as the Biden top medical advisor even though the guy has not practiced medicine in 40 years now says Covid deaths under-reported and references a study saying it’s more likely over 900K which is nearly double of those reported.

      Maybe the extra 300K+ are from Cuomo’s hiding NY nursing home deaths.

      There’s “no doubt” the U.S. has undercounted its number of deaths from Covid-19, which now stand at over 581,000, President Joe Biden’s top medical adviser said.

    143. jason says:

      Biden’s left wing agenda in full swing, Amoral Scumbag here to promote what Fauci says or doesn’t say?

      The moral compass of a floating turd.

    144. Bitterlaw says:

      So jason can watch golf because there is very little woke BS. Sorry, Jason. Tgca said you either support it or you don’t. By your standard and Tgca’s standard, you have to change the channel. Maybe Wicked Tuna has a Mother’s Day Marathon for you.

      Apropos of the GOP. Florida is trending more GOP as time goes by, and is totally run by it now.
      Florida’s white population is 56-57% , with around 6-8% “mixed. It is more racially mixed, with as many “minorities” than some hard Democrat states.
      And we have done worse lately in the suburbs where Bitterlaw’s soccer moms proliferate.
      Perhaps therein is a lesson for where the GOP needs to go, and it’s not where Liz Cheney and Bill Cassidy types want to take it.
      I think we’ll get 50% plus of Hispanics next year, and up to 30% of the black vote here(DeSantis got 17% against a black candidate in 2018, and Charlie Christ isn’t black or Hispanic. We’ll probably just hold our own in the suburbs. The heck with playing to them.Those we get, we get.

      Jason painted himself into a corner with his “ if you watch it you support it stance”

      I will watch golf today.

      Outside for the mandatory interview where the tournament director is obliged to say what kind of woke activities they are supporting there is still very little woke BS in golf.

      SINCE JASON CONDMENS THE NBA AND NFL FPR BEING WOKE FOR SUPPORTING BLM, WHAT “WOKE ACTIVITIES” BY GOLF IS HE DISCUSSING?

      ALSO, PLEASE NOTE THAT GOLF IS OK BECAUSE THERE IS “VERY LITTLE WOKE BS IN GOLF.” THIS IS DIRECTLY IN CONTRAST TO TGCA’S DECLARATION:

      Woke is woke. Period!

      You either support it or you’re against it. No middle ground.

      The EXPERT has spoken.

      SORRY THERE IS NO “VERY LITTLE” EXEMPTION ACCORDING TO THE EXPERT,

      Jason hardest hit:

      “The MLB, MLS, NBA, WNBA and WTA protests are player-led, peaceful, powerful ways to use their respective platforms to bring about the urgent need for change in our country,” read a statement from the tour. “There have been a number of efforts in the past to send a message that the current climate is unacceptable, and these teams, leagues and players now taking this step will help draw further attention to the issues that really matter. The PGA Tour supports them—and any of our own members—standing up for issues they believe in.”

    168. Bitterlaw says:

      I am sure that jason is inspired by the PGA’s commitment to diversity.

    169. jason says:

      Zzzzzzz….

      I have watched golf all afternoon.

      NOTHING woke.

      Meanwhile, Bitter is comfortable being called a racist for hours on end by spoiled entitled millionaires in the NFL and the NBA but wants to compare that to golf?

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

    170. jason says:

      Note Bitter had to go to August 2020 to come up with something woke for golf.

      Hilarious.

      Poor bastard is sinking more and more into wokiness.

    171. Bitterlaw says:

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

      1. What action, not gestures, should I take?

      2. I posted earlier in the weak that it is detrimental and as damaging, probably more damaging, than the current attempt to change voting laws.

      3. I posted the link to the anti-1619 Project group by black scholars. You did not.

      4. Mocking is what we do here. No free lunch, right? If the Broncos make the playoffs AND you still do not watch them, I will give you credit.

    172. jason says:

      SINCE JASON CONDMENS THE NBA AND NFL FPR BEING WOKE FOR SUPPORTING BLM, WHAT “WOKE ACTIVITIES” BY GOLF IS HE DISCUSSING?”

      I answered that.

      “I said there would be an interview where the tournament director would list the contributions the tournament makes to the community, which I consider woke BS.”

      Fortunately, so far today not even that.

    173. jason says:

      Still waiting for Bitter to come up with the post where I said

      “Now he is caught by his own admission that golf has a BLM component to the coverage”

      Show me the “admission” or admit you are a pathological liar.

    174. jason says:

      Zzzzzz….

      “Diversity” has been around for decades and every company has diversity training and something about it on their websites.

      Stop making excuses and defending the woke culture that is destructive to our history and culture.

    175. jason says:

      Still offering Bitter a friendly, fair and equitable resolution to his woke problem.

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

      Comparing golf to the NFL and NBA is not going to do it.

    176. Bitterlaw says:

      there is still very little woke BS in golf.

      Which means that there IS some woke BS in golf.

      What I posted at 4:20:

      “2. I posted earlier in the weak that it is detrimental and as damaging, probably more damaging, than the current attempt to change voting laws.”

      This is why jason is competing with Tgclown for the least coherent poster of the day award. At 4:26 jason posts:

      “Stop making excuses and defending the woke culture that is destructive to our history and culture.”

      Since I said that woke culture is detrimental and damaging, I can’t be making excuses and defending it. Both can’t be true.

      Outside for the mandatory interview where the tournament director is obliged to say what kind of woke activities they are supporting there is still very little woke BS in golf.

      I know you will never understand the definition of “never” but you should be able to understand that when you admitted to there being woke BS in golf, even “very little,” then you are admitting there is “something woke” about golf.

      No free lunch.

    179. Tgca says:

      As I stated in 136, so don’t blame Jadon:

      Woke is woke. Period!

      You either support it or you’re against it. No middle ground.

      However, let me elaborate since it was MY statement that Bitter misinterprets.

      My comment was with respect to being woke. It was not towards the concept for diversity inclusion and righting some past wrongs on inequities by addressing how to make things better today or criticizing certain policies or failure of policies to address societal issues.

      Most companies have varying levels of diversity inclusion programs and most people support such programs that are not intended to enforce quotas through additional discrimination or indoctrination of radical beliefs.

      It would be egregious and dishonest to try and manufacture that this is the same as those that support being woke.

      However, what we see by many NFL and NBA players is woke behavior. Being woke is supporting very radical tactics and oppressive ideas to force others into conformity through fear, intimidation, and violence.

      This is what wokeness looks like:

      Wokeness is indoctrination and negatively stereotyping of groups of people with intent to harm them reputationally without regards to facts. It includes extreme exaggeration and lies about racism and events to push an agenda and force conformity. It is belittlement and disregard for law enforcement, support of one-sided violent protests in the streets that have led to over 30 deaths, hundreds of physical assault of law enforcement and others, destruction of public property without any consideration to realistically addressing the issues of race, demanding reparations, defunding police, demanding socialistic policies in society, and attempting not destroy those who neither agree with their ideology nor bend to their indoctrination. It is trying to change the basic fabric of our being as a nation and re-make it into something detrimental to the core values of American society and the US Constitution.

      That is what being woke looks like.

    180. Tgca says:

      179

      You are misinterpreting woke to try and score points.

      It is disingenuous and you know it.

      You are grasping at wordplay.

      Actions of the NFL and NBA and Coke are classic wokeism. You don’t see that in golf.

      When your friends and family are personally impacted by being woke then maybe you will learn why wokeism is so dangerous to our country.

      When you’re son is denied a job or last on every list because of his skin color, perhaps you’ll understand.

      When you’re daughter is made to be ridiculed in class in front of all for her white privilege and is downgraded in her course work to equalize performance of others, perhaps you’ll understand.

      When your wife is knocked to ground and beaten by those who see her on the street as privileged by the way she looks or dress, perhaps you’ll understand.

      When you are fired from your job and have your reputation destroyed so no one will hire you because of your politics, perhaps you’ll understand.

      When your son is dragged from his car and beaten, stabbed, or killed because he looked a certain way by an angry protesting mob, perhaps you’ll understand.

      Do you understand being woke is EVIL and all these things are already happening under wokeism and will get worse?

    181. Tgca says:

      Wow!

      House GOP leader McCarthy states he supports Elise Stefanik to replace Liz Cheney in leadership role. He answers yes in this direct question in video so see it for yourself.

      He also basically says Cheney unable to do her job because her focus is not on GOP messaging.

      Supposedly a vote is this Wed so we’ll see if Cheney does daily Op-Ed’s for WaPo and NYT for the next few days.

      Illinois CongressCritter Kinzinger says the GOP is like the Titantic.

      He supports Liz Cheney and agrees with her the GOP basically can’t move ahead until they have a partisan investigation on Jan 6th events that Dems will try and use to harm the GOP.

      He says:

      What the reality is as a party, we have to have an internal look and a full accounting as to what led to January 6,” the Illinois Republican Cheney ally said.

      So the vote on Liz is Wed?

      Gives Liz three more days to write Op Ed’s in leftist publications. Let’s see, she’s already used the NYT and Washington Post. Predictions on left wing publications she uses over the next three days. I’m going to predict Politico, USA Today, and The Hill. Of course there is alway Rolling Stone and The Daily Worker. So many to choose from.

      Bye, Liz.

    185. jason says:

      Bitter hardest hit.

      “Opponents of anti-racism education win big in a bitterly divided election in Southlake, Texas. Conservative candidates who opposed a school diversity plan won every local race, taking about 70% of the vote in the wealthy Dallas-Fort Worth suburb.”

    186. jason says:

      Bitter can continue to whine that others point out he supports woke culture.

      Or he can take my offer:

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

    187. Phil says:

      Hey Kinzinger, I here your congressional candidate down here in Texas got three percent.

      So the swampers who represent five percent of the Republican Party believe the answer is to purge the other 95% of Republican voters.

      Great strategy. Perfect. Sounds like a plan.

    188. Tgca says:

      184

      Kinzinger further claims that the reason 70% of GOP think the 2020 election was stolen is that they’ve been told that and it’s all lies. He then goes on to say that he’s sorry that 74M people voted for Trump but they were outvoted by Dems.

      So not only does he suggest the GOP base is stoopid and blindly follows what they’re told and can’t reason for themselves, but he can so he needs to lecture them…he also goes on to repeat an irrelevant argument that has nothing to do with the electoral college which is what this was about.

      Had the votes in a few cities/counties in a select few states gone the other way by about 100K votes, then Trump would have been re-elected.

      This is what the base understands that the CongressCritter does not. There is strong belief that shenanigans occurred to wipe out Trumps lead.

      Remember, until late in the night, it was looking like Trump would be re-elected until all of a sudden tallying was stopped, large voter drops for Biden in the 85% range came in, etc. Even the NYT had Trump probability of being re-elected above 85% I believe during the night and libs were whining on TV.

      Every single forcasting principle used in previous elections just happened to all defy statistical expectations to give Biden a win? Never seen before but this time? Really?

      None of this has been litigated in the courts. Every court case about the election was about standing and timing. Not one was about the data or merits of fraud itself.

      This is why the Dems are fighting tooth and nail to not let statistical analysis and forensic review be completed.

      Recounting votes is not the same as applying statistical analysis and forensic methods. The latter two methods go to cause and effect while recounting is simply repeating an earlier process.

    189. jason says:

      So Bitter wrote 25 posts to say that I said that there was still very little woke BS in golf.

      That must mean I am like Bitter, a supporter of woke sports and woke culture.

      Huh, no.

    190. Bitterlaw says:

      Why wouldI be hardest hit. I am glad the parents tossed out that pro-1619 project and pro-critical race theory board.

      If I was hardest hit, I would not have been the one who pasted the curriculum developed by black scholars, 1776 Unites, that specifically rebuts the 1619 project. I posted the link. Jason did not. Why not if he is up to date on the culture wars. Maybe he was watching golf, which he admits today has some woke components.

    191. Bitterlaw says:

      Remember when Jason used to post that he could watch golf because there was no woke BS? Now it is “very little woke BS.” Goalposts moving…….

    192. Bitterlaw says:

      Or he can take my offer:

      Since I am not woke and have consistently stated that I am against woke culture (including today), jason’s offer is as irrelevant as him offering me a deal to stop calling me left-handed. Besides, no matter what I post, he will just keep moving the goalpost so he can continue to lie about me being woke.

    193. Tgca says:

      193

      Liberace claimed he was not gay.
      Scott Peterson claimed he didn’t kill his wife Lacey.
      Bill Clinton claimed he did not have sexual relations with that woman.

      Now we got Bitter claiming he is not woke.

      Just saying…

    194. jason says:

      Since I am not woke and have consistently stated that I am against woke culture (including today), jason’s offer is as irrelevant as him offering me a deal to stop calling me left-handed. Besides, no matter what I post, he will just keep moving the goalpost so he can continue to lie about me being woke.”

      Convoluted BS.

      Have it your way. Just stop whining then.

    195. jason says:

      which he admits today has some woke components.”

      Talk about moving goalposts.

      “Now he is caught by his own admission that golf has a BLM component to the coverage”

      I guess the BLM lie didn’t last long.

    196. jason says:

      When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

      Shouldn’t be so difficult IF….

    197. Bitterlaw says:

      Have it your way. Just stop whining then.

      Are you going to stop the daily “Bitter hardest hit,” and “Bitter agrees with….” posts? When addressed, I will respond.

      205

      Bitter suffers from the same arrogance and tone-deafness as IL CongressCritter Kinzinger, as noted in my excellent post in 189.

      Bitter assumes we are all stoopid, naive, and IGORENT and can’t think for ourselves regarding LisaB’s politics and her posts.

      Then he claims he does not mock others here for how he views their opinions on wokeness.

      LisaB routinely mocks Bitter because she agrees with many of us on the woke issues and not because she takes us for fools.

      She repeatedly has spoken out against many radical libs’ crazy ideas in the past, especially wokeness.

      I would say LisaB is more of the old-fashioned Dem that the Dem party pretty much has lost over the decades.

      We may agree with her on some issues, and we may defer to her Expertise on all matters gay, but that does not mean she is making useful idiots of us…like the NFL, NBA, and Coke do of Bitter, as he contributes to their revenues so they can further mock everything he CLAIMS to stand for in conservatism.

    207. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzzz. Lisab is a socialist union rep in the most liberal type of union in America (teachers’) and serves on the most far left committee (diversity). Yeah. She’s just an old-style Dem.

    220. Wes says:

      Alternatively Trump could have had his legal team do something about potential voting malpractice in the months before the election rather than just talking about it. Trump himself could have encouraged his voters to take advantage of the early voting and absentee provisions rather than discouraging it. Trump could have run a better campby talking more about his accomplishments rather than trying to say Biden was a doddering old fool–a campaign strategy that backfired spectacularly when Biden was coherent during the first debate while Trump looked like a petulant child.

      Instead, Trump ran a discursive campaign encouraging his own voters to unilaterally disarm while the erstwhile President goaded his opposition to a frenzy.

      In my home state, Republicans took advantage of both early voting and absentee voting to have their voices heard. The NCGOP consequently had a great year, holding a vulnerable Senate seat, giving Trump our EVs, and sweeping the increasingly important judicial races. Republicans also set themselves up nicely for the governorship in 2024 and held solid control of the General Assembly. They did all that with a partisan Dem NCSC and a State Board of Elections run by Democrats. That’s why I don’t buy the idea that Trump lost because of fraud. He let Democrats outmaneuver him in his arrogance after beating Hillary and underestimated suburban backlash to his particular personal brand of politics.

      That’s why I like Ron DeSantis. He has the same kind of appeal to certain key voting demographics Trump has but lacks Trump’s grating egomaniacal public persona. With Democrats increasingly becoming the party of upscale elites, someone like DeSantis will be a boon to Republicans in future elections.

    221. Wes says:

      Former Congressman and Governor Pete DuPont (R-DE) has passed.

      In 1972, Senator Caleb Boggs (R-DE) was planning to retire. As a popular Congressman, DuPont looked like his natural successor; however, former Congressman Harry Haskell (R-DE) threatened a scorched-earth primary if DuPont ran. President Nixon then encouraged Boggs to run again. Boggs agreed and ran a lackluster campaign, ultimately losing to the current occupant of the White House.

      Had Haskell not interjected himself into the fray, we likely wouldn’t have to deal with President Biden now.

      Actually, here in PA he did. I must have received at leaast dozen mail in ballot request forms from Trump’s campaign. However I chose to vote in person because I did not trust the system.

      If Rs were successful in NC in avoiding or overcoming fraud, that is great.

      But it doesn’t change the fact the election was stolen in PA, AZ, GA and WI, maybe MI and NV too.

      Trump’s personality is one thing, we can argue about it all day. I can accept it cost hm votes. I my view “Trump’s brand of politics” is what got him elected in 2016 and made him competitive in 2020, others disagree.

      Voter fraud is another. Anyone who really believes Trump lost AZ, WI and GA by a total of 40 k votes out of close to 12 million votes cast in these states is really naive.

      Zzzzz….

      I have given dozens of examples. So have Tgca and others.

      Every time you attack and mock those who are opposed to woke culture you are supporting it. Every time you trivialize it and pretend it is about drinking Coke or not watching the woke messages in the end zone you are supporting it.
      Every time you do false equivalencies like the NFL and the NBA are the same as golf you are supporting it. Every time you suggest things like viewership and sales are irrelevant you are supporting it.

      You can keep whining at being called on it. Or you can accept my offer.

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

      If you really oppose woke culture this should be really easy.

    225. TgcaEXPERT says:

      Ok. Time for the EXPERT to weigh in and resolve the debate.

      I agree Trump team could have done more before the election in various states. They should have left nothing to chance but that does not negate the fact that shenanigans and illegal behavior ensued, especially with rule changes by Dems that violated their states and the US Constitution. Remember, SCOTUS and other courts never once addressed a case on the merits of fraud, it was always timing or standing. They were cowards to intervene.

      Particularly, there should have been an effort in advance to address each state because folks serving Trump knew what was going on or what was being attempted. For instance, in GA the GOP allowed Abrams to dictate rule changes without safeguards.

      I also agree that Trumps style alienated some but he also brought many voters into the party that could otherwise not have been possible recently. He increased the AA vote and the Latino vote as examples over what any other recent GOP candidate was capable of doing.

      He was dealing 24/7 with an offensive and manipulative MSM and powerful Big Tech unlike any POTUS ever before out to destroy him so there was no way he would ever get a fair shake.

      This election was stolen in a few states he would have otherwise won electorally. That is why 70% of the GOP feels that way. They saw the votes changing in the wee hours of the morning as more and more significantly Biden weighted votes kept coming in that defied statistical norms and expectations.

      The Dems, MSM, and Big Tech have figured out how to beat the system and they will try it again.

      The EXPERT has spoken.

    227. jason says:

      227. Good summary, EXPERT.

      You cannot assume that the VBM system and the vote counting was set up fairly, and all Trump had to do was “take advantage of it”.

      It wasn’t, it was partisan shenanigans from the get go. Yes, Dems took more advantage of the “system” they themselves set up to benefit THEM.

      Yes, and you can see Bitter, aka Mr Woke Surrender, is a real “fighter” against Biden’s agenda.

      After all, if you just roll over and die, it will all be reversed and resolved at the next election. It is all just normal politics, just accept it and don’t forget to vote next time around, just because it didn’t count in 2020 you can be sure it will count in 2022. Don’t worry about these little details like HR1 and ending the filibuster, just vote in 2022. All this woke st-ff is no threat, opponents are just trying to keep me from drinking Coke.

      “SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico police said Monday that they arrested a man accused of shooting and killing a dog that had stolen his ball on a golf course at a well-known resort.

      Authorities identified the man as Salil Zaveri and said the shooting occurred Saturday at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Resort in the north coastal town of Río Grande. Police said he used a 9mm gun to shoot the dog several times.”

    232. Wes says:

      We’re never going to agree the election was stolen, Tg.

      Did Dems game it?

      Absolutely.

      That just meant Trump should have more fully engaged in GOTV efforts rather than letting Dems have free reign in early voting and VBM.

      Trump did gain among Latinos and blacks, but those gains fell well short of his losses among whites.

      Trump was arrogant and couldn’t believe he could. That’s why he lost. The media and Big Tech played a major role clearly, but their efforts wouldn’t have been successful had Trump not run a slipshod campaign whose primary underpinning–Biden’s purported lack of mental competency–fell apart when Biden was lucid and cogent–and highly mendacious–during the first debate.

      Rather than do the adult thing and live to fight another day after the results, Trump falsely declared a landslide victory and went full Al Gore if Gore had been on a co caine bender in November and December of 2000. His hiring of subpar lawyers to litigate his claims who made cases that were laughed out of court only underscores his lack of preparation for the election.

      As for what 70% of Republicans believe, that’s immaterial. 90+% of Americans once believed Earth is only 6,000 years old. Majority opinion doesn’t make something true.

      The election boiled down to a time-honored formula in politics:

      Unpopular incumbent+bad or mediocre campaign=defeat.

      You can argue algorithms and statistics and any other esoteric points you want to make, but you’re convincing no one but anyone already emotionally invested the basics of Trump’s loss were the same as for every other defeated President in US history. The only difference was that Democrats learned from their surprise loss in 2016 and left absolutely nothing to chance while Trump grossly underestimated the effect of their seething hatred for him and consequently gave them the ammunition they needed to dislodge him from office.

      234. Wes

      Yes! We will disagree you don’t know WTF you’re talking about you stoopid southern hick with the irritating accent and annoying drawwwwwlllllll.

      Help me out here Bitter!

      I am not arguing political strategy here or what could’ve should’ve or would’ve happened if more strategy was utilized, as we agree on that.

      I am arguing fraud in a few selected precincts that changed the electoral outcome. It has happened before and will happen again but this time it was front and center with the help of people abusing their offices and violating state and Constitutional laws while the courts stuck their head in the sand.

      Even the great Sewer State recently overturned a fraudulent election where the data analysis showed clear fraud.

      Statistics and forensic evidence are used daily in our judicial system to prove and convict people on crimes because rarely are people caught in the act but their actions leave irrefutable clues of their criminality. Think fingerprint forensics. It’s simply based on mathematical statistics that it is nearly impossible to have identical fingerprints including identical twins.

      I agree there was no timing to let this work through the courts to show PROOF of fraud because forensic investigations and court proceedings would take months or longer but to say it doesn’t happen or didn’t happen and we should just let it go is like saying AA always got fair trials historically among white only jurors so that proves the system works and we should ignore doing anything about it.

      It’s preposterous!

      Now STFU and accept my EXPERT guidance and mentoring you white trailer trash Bish or I will force you to watch GWB greatest speeches all day.

    236. Wes says:

      I never said not to do anything about the bana republic-style tactics Dem used last election, Tg.

      I said Trump should have been out in front of it with a better run campaign and a more solid effort to get voters to the polls to counter what the Dems were doing.

      I don’t at all agree fraud was the ultimate determinant for Trump’s loss. His boisterous term in office and petulant personal style doomed him. Democrats just made absolutely certain Trump wouldn’t catch them flatfooted again.

      Trump could never get out of his own way and thought of himself as invincible after his victory over Hillary. Well, pride goes before a fall.

      If Democrats had nominated Liz Warren or Bernie Sanders, then 2020 would have been like 2016. Instead, Democrats went the safe route while Trump just continued being Trump.

      The results were inevitable. I just hope the next GOP nominee learns from Trump’s mistakes and produces a better result.

      Thankfully Biden has had a rocky start in office, so the prospect of beating Democrats in 2022 and Biden in 2024 is strong.

    237. Wes says:

      I keep pointing out NC as an example of what I’m saying.

      Dems had absolute power over our election process from the state courts to the NCSBE. They lost. If they were going to steal elections anywhere, NC would be the place. They couldn’t win because Republicans were better prepared for them here than in other marginal states.

    238. jason says:

      In the end wes does not believe the election was stolen.

      He doesn’t believe VBM fraud, illegal votes, ballot harvesting, counting irregularities, etc. could have made a difference of 10k votes in AZ, 20k votes in WI, 80k votes in PA, 30k votes in NV, 12k votes in GA.

      We are never going to agree on this.

      Not that I agree that Trump ran a bad campaign either. He expanded the GOP base to include more minorities.

      He could not overcome the VBM fraud and the MSM 95% negative campaign. He could not overcome partisan debate moderators. He could not overcome losing the power of his rallies.

      But even will all that, a very very very small shift in the votes of 3 states would have given him the win.

      Because of that, I will continue to believe the result was fraudulent. Sue me.

    239. jason says:

      Btw, I don’t disagree with wes’ assessment of NC.

      But every state is different, and because Rs might have been successful in avoiding fraud in NC doesn’t mean it couldn’t have happened in WI, GA, AZ, NV and PA.

      I even agree the R legislature in PA contributed to the fraud by approving some of the measures the Dems used to cheat. The GA GOP SOS certainly helped the Dems counter the fraud allegations there. The ballot harvesting law passed by the Dems in NV probably gave them the win there, I wish the Trump DOJ had challenged it.

    240. Wes says:

      Getting 6 million fewer votes than one’s opponent and topping out at 47% of the vote is not my definitely of expanding a party base, Jason.

      By that definition, Romney expanded the base more than Trump.

      You can think Republicans can lose poorly run campaigns only by fraud if you like. You’re not going to convince anyone who doesn’t want to be convinced.

    241. Wes says:

      Ah. Jason joins Pitchaboy, Howard Dean, MD, Corey, and Gatorbillytroll in claiming to know more about NC politics than I.

      How’d that work out for all of them, Jason?

    242. jason says:

      I agreed with you on NC.

    243. Tgca says:

      239

      If Wes thinks NC is less likely to cheat than Dems in major corrupt cities in GA, MI and PA, I don’t know what to say.

      It’s like saying fraud in big cities is more likely to occur in NC than NJ…that just doesn’t sound right.

      For example, Newark, NJ is one of the most corrupt cities in the US with one mayor going to prison and another avoiding prison by agreeing to tax evasion in the last 20 years. These are just examples of what we routinely see in Dem stronghold cities where fraud is rampant and often they get away with it.

      For Wes’s reading pleasure, here’s some fun facts about corrupt NJ mayors the last 20 years, mainly in Dem strongholds and that does not include other state politicians and fraud going beyond 20 years.

      Wes is going to be busy today between watching GWB speeches and reading about NJ corruption.

    245. Tgca says:

      241

      Spot on mental midget! You’re learning.

      This was about defrauding the electoral college by egregious acts in a few selected Dem strongholds they knew no one would dig into.

      There was no need for selected Dem cities fraud in this case in NY, NJ, IL, or CA because Dems knew they would win those states. They needed fraud in places like GA, MI, WI, AZ and PA to deny Trump winning them again.

      The fact that Republican politicians ignored or did nothing to stop the fraud at a state level did not matter because it was at the local level that the fraud occurred, and they knew they could get away with it because white GOP politicians are fearful of being called racists publicly.

    248. Tgca says:

      247

      The 6 million margin is mainly from CA and NY. Look at the rest of the country? Trump and the GOP expanded their base.

      The same happened in 2016. Take out CA and NY which are highly skewed, and Trump won the popular vote elsewhere by greater than HRC 3M vote margin from those states.

      Either way it does not matter because we elect POTUS based on EC and not nationwide popular vote but it is stoopid analysis to include outliers on either side.

      Again, if the less than 100K votes in those selected cities/counties had been flipped in 2020, Trump would have been re-elected so we need to look at the forensics evidence and statistical analysis to identify how Biden defied all the historical odds of losing to Trump.

      It just does not seem probable and that’s why 70% of GOP and I recall even like 30% of Indys believe there was fraud in 2020 election.

    249. Phil says:

      Agree with, Wes. Nominate DeSantis. He is basically Trump without the rough edges….and Democrats know it. They are terrified of him….hence all the BS they’ve tried to hit him with such as the hit job on 60 minutes which got no traction. Why no traction? Because he doesn’t cower to them after every attack. He hits them right back. Doesn’t apologize or back down and accept every ridiculous attack as something he needs to be apologizing about. At the same time, unlike Trump, he doesn’t go out of his way to make enemies just for the hell of it. Democrat’s worst nightmare…and as I say, they know it.

    250. Tgca says:

      Agreed!

      My Florida gubbernor is the best!

      However, let’s face facts that Trump came along at the right time to be able to help change the dialogue in the GOP and push it away from the Bush and rino leanings to bring some new blood to the party forefront. Had he not, Hilary would be in her 2nd term as POTUS.

      Trump helped the GOP change its thinking and started this push to change the GOP to fight more against MSM and Big Tech. Doubt that even DeSantis would be gubbernor today if not for Trump since he was going to run for Rubio’s senate seat in 2016 had Rubio gotten the GOP nomination (likely) and then lost to Hilary.

      DeSantis was a staunch Trump ally and made his name on supporting him strongly here in FL.

      So it’s probable that we could have had Hilary in her 2nd term and Gubbernor Gillum in Florida seeking re-election in 2022.

      That being said, DeSantis is his own man and a very strong and articulate no nonsense communicator. He was groomed at Yale and then Harvard Law so he can compete with the best of them. He also has military pedigree though in admin roles than combat and spent time in that chithole country Iraq.

      He is my choice for 2024 at this time unless he changes dramatically for the worse or is caught in bed with an altar boy or something.

    251. Wes says:

      Actually, Jason, you were saying you disagreed with me on NC. I pointed out if Dems were going to win an election on fraud they would have done it here. They had all the advantages. The NCSC and NCSBE would have rubber-stamped every Dem victory regardless of merit–had Dems won either justly or fraudulently.

      That Dems in NC controlled everything but couldn’t steal the elections here tells me Dems didn’t steal the election from Trump. They gamed it to win, and Trump was too disengaged from the process to counter.

      Trump gained votes, but Biden gained many more. Trump gained among blacks and Latinos, but Biden undercut Trump among whites. It was a numbers game. Trump spent four years ginning the opposition up as evidenced by each election and cycle from 2017 to 2019 and ran a discursive, haphazard campaign that failed to counter what Dems were doing to win.

      Tgca’s algorithms and statistics prove nothing but that Democrats were more invested than Trump in the race and did a better job of ensuring victory.

    252. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      DeSantis also has an impressive resume. Former SEAL and Navy officer; served in Iraq. Went to Harvard Law School.

      Many Republican politicians, including Trump and Dick Cheney, were viewed as hypocrites because they appeared to have dodged the military draft when young.

    253. jason says:

      Actually, Jason, you were saying you disagreed with me on NC.”

      No. I just disagreed that because they didn’t cheat in NC, or weren’t able, or weren’t able to cheat enough doesn’t mean it didn’t happen in other states.

    254. Tgca says:

      254

      It’s just not algorithms.

      It’s acts of reported fraud by numerous folks signing affidavits under oath risking penalty of perjury attesting to irregularities.

      It’s violations of state and federal laws that resulted in continuous non-stop vote dumping.

      Your saying forensics don’t count.

      I knew DeSantis had an impressive resume. Did not know he was a Navy Seal.

      I’m totally in with this guy. Republicans would be idiots not to nominate him. Of course, given the cluelessness of a party that has been led by the likes of Liz Chenney, Boehner, Paul Ryan, Sasse, Cassidy, Hogan, Burr, Flake, Romney, Murkowski, Toomey, W, and the rest of the establishment useful idiots they’ll probably muck it up with a Nikki Haley and then wonder why Biden is enjoying a second term.

      I want to hear a talented singer sing and not lecture me on politics. Same with movie stars, I want to watch them perform and not lecture.

      I am now inclined to avoid artists who push political agendas no matter how talented they are because I see no reason to fund their bully pulpit against my beliefs, and this is where me and my metrosexual friend Bitter disagree.

      Ron DeSantis was a JAG, and could not accurately be described as a “Navy SEAL”: While he was appointed to SEAL Team One, it was as “Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander”:

      Military service
      DeSantis received his Reserve Naval officer’s commission and assignment to the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) in 2004 at the U.S. Naval Reserve Center in Dallas, Texas, while still a student at Harvard Law School. He completed Naval Justice School in 2005. Later that year, he received orders to the JAG Trial Service Office Command South East at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, as a prosecutor. In 2006, he was promoted from lieutenant, junior grade to lieutenant. He worked for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO), working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility.[15][16][17]

      In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command Group in Coronado, California, where he was assigned to SEAL Team One and deployed to Iraq[18] with the troop surge as the Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah.[15][16][17]

      DeSantis returned to the U.S. in April 2008, at which time he was reassigned to the Naval Region Southeast Legal Service. The U.S. Department of Justice appointed him to serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney[18] at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Middle District of Florida. DeSantis was assigned as a trial defense counsel until his honorable discharge from active duty in February 2010. He concurrently accepted a reserve commission as a lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the US Navy Reserve.[19] He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal.[15][16][17]

    282. Wes says:

      That just defies logic.

      Or maybe, just maybe, Tg, it’s just your opinion that a Trump defeat defies logic.

      I find it perfectly logical an unpopular incumbent President who ginned up votes by the opposition and encouraged his supporters to unilaterally disarm on a playing field the Dems enthusiastically engaged in would lose.

      It happens.

      It happened to Taft. It happened to Hoover. It happened to Carter. It happened to GHWB. It happened to Trump.

      Trump couldn’t accept defeat. You can’t accept his defeat. It didn’t have to happen, but it did happen.

      The best outcome at this point is to learn lessons from 2020 and keep it from happening again.

    283. Meldrim says:

      #282, Tgca, thanks for sharing. The only thing that I knew about Jackie Wilson was that he was one of the two R&B stalwarts who died in 1984 and were mentioned in The Commodores’ 1985 single “Night Shift” (the great Marvin Gaye was the other one).

    284. jason says:

      More good reading for Bitter.

      “The modern woke-industrial complex divides us as a people. By mixing morality with consumerism, America’s elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. They sell us cheap social causes and skin-deep identities to satisfy our hunger for a cause and our search for meaning, at a moment when we as Americans lack both.

      This book not only rips back the curtain on the new corporatist agenda, it offers a better way forward. America’s elites may want to sort us into demographic boxes, but we don’t have to stay there.

      “Woke, Inc.” begins as a critique of stakeholder capitalism and ends with an exploration of what it means to be an American in 2021—a journey that begins with cynicism and ends with hope.”

    285. jason says:

      and encouraged his supporters to unilaterally disarm on a playing field the Dems enthusiastically engaged in would lose.”

      Except I don’t agree that was the case. The Dems enthusiastically engaged in a system fraught with fraud that they knew would benefit them.

      I don’t think the Trump vote was affected by people like me deciding they couldn’t trust VBM and insisting on voting in person.

      Like I said, Trump’s campaign did send out millions of absentee ballot requests in PA, I got at least a dozen.

      And the only way it won’t happen again in the future is not to tell Rs to participate in a fraudulent system, it it is to end the fraudulent system. Many states are implementing such laws, including GA, but many are not, including PA.

    286. jason says:

      Or maybe, just maybe, Tg, it’s just your opinion that a Trump defeat defies logic.”

      Trump’s defeat does not defy logic.

      What defies logic is that in a system of uncontrolled VBM with millions of ballots floating around and unsupervised counting in Dem controlled large cities, that Trump “lost” 3 states by 40k votes out of 12 million cast, and we are supposed to accept that result as gospel.

    287. Tgca says:

      Meldrim

      Many male singers of the 50s and early 60s had uniquely great voices but then music changed and great voices were no longer needed to be a star. That is not to take away from other talented male singers who had style, writing, or musical capabilities but you rarely saw that unique high quality voice in music routinely required anymore.

      I also am a huge fan of Tony Williams from the Platters, probably my fav 50s group and Jay Black whose Cara Mia still gives me goose bumps when he hits those notes at the end of the song…it’s like rock opera.

      Didn’t Bitter tell us there was nothing Catholics could do to oppose the Pope?

      What happened?

      “Germany’s powerful Catholic progressives are openly defying a recent Holy See pronouncement that priests cannot bless same-sex unions by offering such blessings at services in about 100 different churches all over the country this week.

      The blessings at open worship services are the latest pushback from German Catholics against a document released in March by the Vatican’s orthodoxy office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which said Catholic clergy cannot bless same-sex unions because God “cannot bless sin.”

    290. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      You can split hairs, but DeSantis was in a combat zone at Fallujah:

      “Iraqi men were rounded up in raids conducted by SEALs and Green Berets to help take insurgents off the battlefield and gain intelligence, missions that DeSantis helped plan, Thorleifson said.

      DeSantis, said Thorleifson, was a critical part of the task force that had about 400 personnel who were conducting raids, doing interrogations and detentions and moving prisoners into the Iraqi legal system.

      Thorleifson described DeSantis as “one of my very close counsels that as we developed a mission concept of operations, he made sure it was legal. I respected him a lot as a JAG. He was super smart, articulate, resourceful and a positive part of the staff. I relied on him heavily.”

      …and you should ask why this is so?

      More good reading for Bitter.

      This is why jason “fair offer” is BS. No matter what I do, he will always attack.

      Didn’t Bitter tell us there was nothing Catholics could do to oppose the Pope?

      What my ignorant friend jason does not understand is that such blessings OUTSIDE the Church do not have the effect of a blessing WITHIN the Church. It is not a blessing BY the Church. It would be no more valid than me trying to perform a marriage ceremony just because I am Catholic. Their opposition does not change Church law or policy.

    293. Bitterlaw says:

      My brother-in-law was in the JAG for 25+ years. When he was assigned to the Rangers, he had to jump out of a plane twice to be certified to be assigned with the unit. He would not call himself a Ranger (and they would never have let him).

      DeSantis is my top choice (which must alarm Phil). I do not know if he calls himself a SEAL. If he does, the Democrats have probably funded “SEALS for Truth” to attack him. He is a veteran who served alongside SEALS and should be extremely proud of his association with the greatest, toughest warriors on the planet.

    294. jason says:

      Ah yes, the woke position.

      Nothing can be done.

      However, the Catholic church DOES change its policies, and one has to imagine there is a reason for it.

      If you want to stop “attacks” (telling you its good reading is not really an attack, I read it myself) you can agree to the offer.

      As my southern redneck friends would say with their irritating accents:

      Wronnnnnnnnggggggg!

      That’s like saying because for decades the Church did nothing about known pedophile priests that it somehow had the blessing of the Church for the priests to be pedophiles.

      Bull dinky!

      I don’t buy that logic. One can still oppose the Church even if the Church does not accept the opposition.

      It took decades before the Church started to change its views on these abusive priests and that came from outside opposition, particularly lawsuits awarding large compensation and bad publicity for the Church and Rome in particular.

    299. Wes says:

      Well, according to Tgca and Jason, Democrats cheated everywhere but NC. They poured more resources into this state than any other but while engaging in fraud everywhere else, decided to be magnanimous and engage in fair play in NC despite the fact that Republicans would have had no recourse against them.

      That makes perfect sense of course. 🙄

    300. jason says:

      I believe Dems engaged in voter fraud in PA, GA, NV, WI, AZ, and MI. Due to the margin, I don’t think it ultimately affected the result in MI.

      I will take your word for it that they didn’t engage in any fraud in NC.

      But your example was foolish. You acted as if a Priest blessing a same-sex marriage was a change in official Church policy or had the effect of Canon Law. It is not. The Church can change its policies/beliefs but it is only valid if the Pope approves the change.

    305. Wes says:

      You’re missing my point, Jason–probably intentionally. If Democrats engaged in mass fraud elsewhere they would have done it and won here. They lost here. You can keep pretending Democrats somehow magnanimously decided to engage in fair play in the State they invested the most resources in while being successful elsewhere, or you can acknowledge the idea that the entire election hinged on fraud. They’re mutually exclusive points of view.

      The fact is that NC would have been Ground Zero for the massive vote fraud you claim cost Trump reelection. It wasn’t despite all the advantages Dems had here. Ergo, your contention that Trump would have cruised to reelection if not for fraud is dubious at best.

      You sound just like a girl I had a one-night stand with years ago who repeated the Dem talking points that Gore lost because Bush supposedly stole the election.

      Unpopular incumbent+bad or mediocre campaign+excited opposition=defeat.

      It’s not really that hard to figure out. These Rube-Goldberg conspiracy theories about Trump’s electoral defeat work much better in an Oliver Stone movie than on a blog discussing real-life politics.

    307. Phil says:

      Every state is different. Florida is the gold standard of election security. It’s how to do it. Because of the debacle of 2000 prompting reforms, their election laws are as tight as can be in every category you can imagine. Photo IDs required, no questionable mail in ballots arriving days after the election, no tens of thousands of ballots mailed out to random addresses (see Nevada), no ballot harvesting by third parties with questionable chain of custody.

      See for yourself. Twelve million ballots counted by midnight on election night. Compare that to what happened in Pa where the count went on for three days. The result? A clear Trump win in Florida tripling his 2016 margin.

    308. Meldrim says:

      #293, SDC, point taken. But we shouldn’t refer to DeSantis as a SEAL lest we invite accusations of “stolen valor.” We can talk about the medals that DeSantis received for his military service in a war zone without calling him a SEAL.

    309. Meldrim says:

      #290, thanks again, Tgca. Alas, the only 1950s R&B to which I have listened regularly (apart from occasional visits to oldies stations) are The Coasters.

      And I agree that singers back then had to sing, unlike the Autotune fakers of today.

    310. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      296. Bitter, just for clarification, I referred to DeSantis as a SEAL. DeSantis did not refer to himself as one.

    311. Phil says:

      I might add that It helped that Florida cleaned up the last obstacle to a fair vote after the 2018 attempt to steal that election in Broward County. The corrupt election supervisor there was thrown out after her blatant attempt to steal votes for Nelson the day after the election. They couldn’t try it again in 2020 because DeSantis and his people were watching.

    312. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      311. Agree. But for all purposes from his training in Coronado to his service in Iraq, he was operating with SEAL units. His participation with SEAL units should be noted.

    313. jason says:

      If Democrats engaged in mass fraud elsewhere they would have done it and won here.”

      zzzzz…..

      Complete claptrap.

      Every state is different. Just because the Dems engaged in fraud in PA they necessarily would have engaged in fraud in NC? Really? Somehow the PA election officials would have been in cahoots with someone in NC?

      Let’s get real, that is ridiculous.

      I never alleged any coordination between the states, never.

      The PA Dems did there thing here. In GA they had their fraud.

      Talk about dumb conspiracy theories.

      I am glad there was no fraud in NC. I will take your word for it. But it means nothing for any other state.

    314. jason says:

      Phil has a good point. NC, FL, OH, etc. had most of the Presidential race count done the first night. I believe that reduces the potential for fraud.

    315. jason says:

      Trump lost 3 states by 40k votes combined, all of which had major issues with VBM, inner city voting irregularities, you name it.

      You can believe it was all on the up and up.

      I don’t.

    316. jason says:

      Plus, the fraud issue has nothing to do with whether Trump ran a good or bad campaign.

      Nada. Zilch. Zero.

    317. Wes says:

      I agree, Jason. It is 100% ridiculous for you to go all Oliver Stone on the election and declare some widespread voter fraud conspiracy in any close state Trump lost.

      We absolutely see eye to eye on that.

      You ignore NC because it doesn’t fit your narrative. A narrative is what you’re spouting. It’s as prerehearsed and canned as the Dem talking points that Obama was a center left politician who didn’t understand how bad partisan rancor could be or Scott Walker bought the Wisconsin recall.

      It’s a self-serving narrative just like every other talking point in US history.

    318. Phil says:

      Pa is a good example of Democratic manipulation of the vote count.

      In 2016 Democrats thought Hillary was a shoe in. They had the Philly vote counted by midnight. Oops. Trump over performed in the rest of the state and the Philly vote wasn’t enough. They couldn’t go to the well again after releasing that vote.

      2020? They weren’t going to make that mistake again. What do you know. The Philly vote was held back and the count went on for two and a half days to see what they needed.

      Worked like a charm.

    319. jason says:

      So wes, we are not going to agree on fraud. You think it was all legitimate, fine with me.

      WHat do you think of the VA GOP winning candidate Glenn Youngkin.

      Seems like a surprise.

    320. Phil says:

      Covid, of course, set up the basis for late arriving ballots. Democrats took full advantage,

      It was not a fair election in any shape or form.

      …..and don’t get me started on what was don in Fulton, County Georgia on election night and the two days after.

      Disgrace.

    321. jason says:

      I don’t ignore NC. I just don’t think there was any coordination between the fraudsters in PA with the fraudsters in GA or any other state. I don’t think because there might not have been fraud in NC there can’t be fraud in WI.

      Every state has its own dynamics. Maybe the SOS in NC is more honest than the SOS in PA, low bar…

    322. Wes says:

      I don’t know much about him, but he seems like a solid candidate Dems will have a hard time with. VA may have moved too far left for Youngkin to best McAuliffe, but it’s worth a shot to try to rebuild the state party.

      If Biden continues to make things untenable for the Dems, Youngkin may pull off the upset.

      We shall see.

    323. Wes says:

      Jason, the NCSOS has no power over ballot counting. The State Board of Elections–which has a Dem majority because Roy Cooper is Governor–handles that.

      NC has one of the longest early voting periods in the country as well as lax VBM laws and no photo ID requirement for voting.

      That’s the Dems’ voting wet dream.

      It got them nothing last year.

    324. Phil says:

      No doubt Democrats were disappointed in NC results. I suspect if NC had Florida type rule Trump would have perhaps significantly increased his margin over the 70K he carried the state by.

      Wes, how’s Cal doing. It sure got quiet with him.

    325. Bitterlaw says:

      SDC – My wife, daughter, and son are going to Coronado after my daughter graduates from high school. Fortunately, I was able to convince my wife it is too early for me to take vacation time from my new firm. They will have more fun without me. Now, if they had chosen to go to London, I would have asked for time off.

    326. Wes says:

      Phil, ‘Family Values’ Cal is persona non grata with the NCDP. He was supposed to oust Tillis and usher in a new era of Dem hegemony. He failed, so local Dems want nothing to do with him.

    327. Tgca says:

      Disregard what Wes says on this matter. He is not an EXPERT like me.

      He keeps thinking NC was big on the list for Dems when it was always MI, PA, and WI that was part of the Blue Wall that Trump broke that gave him the presidency in 2016.

      The Dems needed to repair and reinforce that Blue Wall and they did it by any means possible, and they needed insurance like GA which the GA GOP handed to them on a silver platter.

      We know that all the counting was slowed in selected Dem districts in 2020 on election night.

      Again, a complete forensics audit will allow folks to determine how and why and allow confidence to be restored but the Dems and MSM are fighting this as if they were defending Fort Knox.

    328. Phil says:

      That’s about what I figured, Wes.

    329. Wes says:

      Tg:

      1) Dems spent over $200 million in this state. You can argue it wasn’t big on the Dem target list if you want, but that’s not true. They won this state by the way in 2008 even as GA–which Biden carried–voted against Obama.

      2) Vote counting in NC wasn’t finished till after Thanksgiving with virtually all uncalled races going GOP. Dems had plenty of time to steal the elections here. They just couldn’t do it.

    330. Wes says:

      I should add a third point:

      3) Al Gore wanted an endless recount and audit after 2000 as well. He failed in the courts and in several recounts. Trump went full Al Gore after Biden won. Never go full Al Gore.

      4) Why are you repeating the Gore talking points from 2000 with Trump’s name superimposed?

    331. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      328. It’s about 70 degrees in Coronado: restaurants are open; people in San Diego seem to be extra friendly now — probably because their out and about again. It’s great to be here now. Beats the gloomy Northwest.

      Bitter, is it going to hurt that bad to get away to Coronado for a few days? Are you fearful you might actually have some fun?

    332. lisab says:

      Trump went full Al Gore after Biden won. Never go full Al Gore.
      ————————–

      a big difference being that al gore got his case reviewed by scotus

      they should have reviewed the case

      the way it went, there is the appearance of fraud and trump supporters being railroaded and not being given any recourse

      at least if scotus heard the case, even if they sided with biden, there would not be the appearance of fraud … assuming scotus said that there was no evidence of widespread fraud

      the worst possible thing in a democracy is to have half the people think their votes don’t count.

      for example, we did not plan it this way, we were just buying retirement property

      SDC – I live by billable hours. No boss is going to say, “You have been here 3 months. Take a week off.” If I was a boss I would tell an employee to enjoy their trip but be certain there was nothing in their office since they are fired.

      We have restaurants where I live. Four days away means 8 meals out OR being hostage to what my sister-in-law and brother-in-law want to make. I am not a food person. More than once I have lived 2-3 days just on soda. I can’t co-exist where people put fruit on pizza. The trip would not be fun.

      If I want to sit on the beach in 70 degree weather, I can drive 1 1/2 hours to Ocean City, NJ. I don’t have to spend 10-12 hours of driving to the airport, parking, waiting on the plane, flying on the plane, waiting to get picked up and driven to their house. I hope to never go to California. My wife keeps asking when we are going to visit my best friend from high school and his husband in Sonoma. I said she can take my ashes out there to visit when I am gone. My friend and his husband are really nice. It’s not my fault they moved out there. If they move to London, I will schedule a trip.

      Biden’s supporters would be saying the exact same things Jason and Tgca have been seeing all day had Trump won. They would have no more of a case than Tgca and Jason have, but they would believe it wholeheartedly–and most likely act on it by burning a city or five.

      That to me is the worst legacy of 2020:

      Democrats were willing to turn us into a banana republic to beat Trump, and Trump acted like an overgrown five-year-old whose mother took away his favorite toy–and came off just as petty and power hungry as the Democrats.

      I don’t know if we can return to an electoral makeup wherein both sides aren’t actively suspicious of each other’s willingness to lie and cheat, but we need to.

      Otherwise this country will fracture and go onto what the great President Reagan called the “ash heap of history.”

      Sorry Wes.

      I’ve worked in companies where we used forensic principles to identify fraud trends. So whether it’s elections or banking transactions or accounting entries or payroll payments or inventory management…, forensic data analysis can identify and find trends that suggest fraud or other unexplained anomalies.

      There is significant data trends and anomalies identified in the select cities and counties that suggest fraud or at a minimum significant anomalies that should be reviewed.

      I recall a few times in my career where we have identified errors and fraud by applying forensic data techniques to various types of data, including people using technology.

      The Big Four audit firms use forensic analysis in most annual audits to identify trends and seek data inconsistencies in various transactions…and I’m not talking just dollars and amounts, it looks at access privileges, segregation of duties, timing of transactions, reporting relationships, etc.

      In fact, as one simple example, I have had auditors question in the past why certain activity occurred late at night or on weekends when they looked at computer logs of when transactions were posted because activity occurring during non-peak or unexpected timeframes is often a sign of surreptitious activity.

      So again, I think there is fraud here, and I think it should be investigated but like I said before, the powers that be, including some in the GOP are doing everything they can to stop such forensic analysis and just saying take our word there was no fraud because we counted and double counted ballots which does not get to the forensic issues at hand.

      I’m sorry if you can’t understand that but I think the best way to settle this issue is to allow forensic analysis of the data. If it shows no fraud, then good, we can have confidence in election processes.

      My guess is folks are concerned what will be found, even some in the GOP and then be held accountable.

      I can provide numerous examples where I have seen fraud exposed through forensic data analysis. I have spent a good part of my career putting together controls to reduce risk and fraud, and every year for decades I have sat in front of auditors to answer their probing questions on data and trends.

      I have always believed from Day 1 that there was not enough time to present voter fraud through the courts before Inauguration Day, as the amount of work and cross examination would go on for months at a minimum.

      However, the courts could have ruled on such constitutionality issues where states disenfranchised voters by not following federal and state laws. It is just incomprehensible to say because of an epidemic certain gubbermint people without authority could decide what laws to change or follow without proper judicial review.

      That is where I think there could have been some resolution.

      It was a catch-22 cowardly decision in some cases where SCOTUS would not take the case until after Inauguration Day but then dismiss it because it was now moot.

      The only remedy before Inauguration Day was a political one where Congress could take action and that failed because Pence also showed he had no stomach for sending some of these back to the states to resolve.

      I know you’re an Expert in all things gay but I will venture into your area and share my view.

      I never thought gay marriage would change much in the gay community until the current generations died out and new generations approached commitment and marriage similarly to the rest of society.

      Sorry! But committed gay marriages are extremely infinitesimal in this day and age.

      I did a series of postings on this awhile back.

      The gay community as a whole is not currently interested in monogamy or other long-term stabilization. However, they are interested in the legal and economic benefits…so at least it’s a step in the right direction but I suspect another two decades at least before gays consider monogamy and marriage more seriously, especially since only a very small portion of the gay community has taken advantage of legal marriage.

      i of course am aware of your thoughts on the matter,

      AND

      you forget lesbians

    364. Bitterlaw says:

      you forget lesbians

      Tgca is such a hater.

    365. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      365. Bitter, a lot of gay males do live in monogamous relationships, particularly younger people. A lot of the older generation are puzzled by it; but it represents the majority of gay males I know.

    366. Tgca says:

      368

      Lesbians are not gay…they’re lesbians.

      But studies do suggest lesbians are less likely to stay together than gay males but is that because of Lesbian Bed Death or something else?

      I think it’s because a number of things but more likely because gay men are more likely to be in open relationships and stay together for economic or friendship reasons.

      Also, gay men that actually marry tend to marry at much older ages than lesbians so they’re more resigned to make it work whether it’s monogamous or not.

      Most of the gay men in my area, the most densely gay populated area in FL, that live together as committed or married appear to be in open relationships.

      That does not work for those mean jealous lesbians as a whole. Many gay men start out as lovers and remain friends over the years, as I can attest to having seen many of my gay friends naked. That is not the case for lesbians.

      Anyways, I don’t want to scare people away by talking about Lesbian Bed Death so I will “CEASE” the moment.

    367. lisab says:

      yes, but gay marriage includes lesbians

      and it is interesting that lesbians are more monogamous but with shorter relationships

    368. Tgca says:

      380

      A lot is still a very small minority of the gay community so we can’t look at volume alone. We have to look at percentages. Less than 5% of gay male relationships lasts beyond 10 years as monogamous.

      I do think we have to wait and see if this trend changes over times as attitudes change, especially since legal gay marriage is less than 6 years old in the US.

      I believe there are many reasons for gay non-monogamy that goes beyond sexual gratification itself. I think a lot has to do with historical discrimination and shaming of same-sex relationships that impact the ability of men to commit to trusting and LTR, and reinforced beliefs by many gays that gay men are just not capable of being monogamous which I think is bull.

      Also, I think family, legal and financial burdens play a big role. Without children and alimony, the pressure on gays is less than straights who would think twice before screwing a marriage up with infidelity. Also, the family shame factor plays a role why you ruined your marriage by cheating.

      Lastly, divorce can be very ugly. I’ve seen some nasty ones. I once had a boss who went from a loving marriage to sheer vitriolic hate as he and his wife fought viciously over everything in the divorce to the point it was spiteful, like in War of the Roses.

      Most gay men either part or stay together at some level if friendship.

    369. Tgca says:

      372

      We gay men do not think of lesbians as gay. They’re lesbians!

      It’s that simple!

      That’s why we rarely mingle socially except during big events.

      I went to a large gay bar in NYC once where they catered to different rooms for gay men and lesbians.

      Being the curious fellow I am, I wandered into the lesbian room and they were playing lesbian porn on the video screens. Very explicit and close-up mind you.

      I always found the concept of playing porn in any social setting odd but normally, I only saw gay male porn at those kind of bars you only take your out-of-town friends to for like an hour when they’re visiting from the Midwest but otherwise you never go near. Perhaps lesbians do it differently. I dunno. But playing lesbian porn in a dance club seemed odd to me.

      I also saw a gross act of display by two lesbians in a dance club in San Francisco once in the middle of the dance floor and surmised they were drunk or something, and I was wandering if that one woman was ever gonna get her arm back or it was lost forever.

      Those crazy lesbians!

      You, Tg, are making no claims D o ndero didn’t make back then.

      I’m sure the Dems had their versions of you saying the same things in 2001, 2005, and 2017.

      It’s become a tradition in our politics when the losing side declares it lost only because of fraud. I’m resigned to it at this point. It’s as predictable as it is unoriginal.

      In 2025, someone else will step up with the same analysis as a post mortem for his preferred candidate, rest assured. It will happen again in 2029, 2033, 2037, and so forth.

      Declaring the other side could win only by cheating is the new norm in politics. It’s taking its place alongside the obscure professor whose algorithm has predicted the winner of every election since 1976 only to miss the current one.

      As per Red State:

      “His key findings in Maricopa are earth-shaking:”

      “Two massive vote dumps occurred in just over an hour after the Arizona polls closed totally ~625,000 and ~1,473,000 votes, respectively.
      The total of those two vote dumps (2,098,619) exceeded the official results total of Maricopa County votes cast (2,089,563) by more than 9,000 votes.
      Biden received more votes in those two vote dumps (1,161,582) than the official vote tally (1,040,774) in Maricopa County. (Was this the reason for that suspicious fire?)
      Those dumps could only have been absentee ballot early voting results that were counted legally in the two weeks before Election Day, as late-arriving absentee ballots and election day in-person voting results could not possibly have been included in those two dumps uploaded just over an hour after the polls closed.
      Those vote dumps were time-stamped making it impossible that those dumps came from any county other than Maricopa, as no other Arizona county delivered more than 525,000 votes, and any two or more counties necessary to contribute to either of those dumps would have had to time their uploads down to the second (an impossibility).
      In-person voting in Maricopa County on Election Day totaled 167,000 votes cast, per multiple sources (here and here); how were those in-person votes accounted for when the two early voter dumps identified above already exceeded the official number of votes cast in the county?”

      At least in 1973 there was a Republican Party that wasn’t afraid to stand against those policies. Now? An empty Republican Party filled with useful idiots desperately seeking approval from the likes of Chuck Todd.

      Bow down to your new leftist overlords and just accept that the new America is a national version of one party California. Embrace the horror.

      The Republican candidate for DA in Philadelphia sucks but at least he is not a Democrat. He was a Democrat even longer than Trump but, like Trump, he needed a less formidable road to the GE. As I said before, if Hillary did not run, I think Trump would have run for the Dem nomination in 2016. Might be in his second term now if he did.

    431. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzz…give him a medal because he thinks murderers should go to jail? Wow.

      Krasner makes Harris look like a real prosecutor. One of his brilliant proposals to do away with cash bail. Criminals just walk out with having to post bail. Another idea was to not prosecute shoplifting and thefts under $500. This has lead to pharmacies and businesses locking away most goods because people were just walking into stores, taking less than $500 worth of goods and walking out the door. He made his career out of suing cops and cities.

      The NHL is trying its best to GO WOKE. For some reason, they made a big deal out of a Tampa Bay Lightning lineup which started 3 players who happened to be black.

      I guess I had not realized, until now, that the lack of interest in hockey from some people was actually due to the racism of all previous hockey players.

      Oddly enough, despite the “racism” I played with, I have played in leagues with some players who happened to be black. I also almost had a fight with one of them, because he was very good, and skating circles around my defensemen, so I had to use some physical force on him……..even though it was a non-checking league.

      Mind you, we did have a nice conversation while in the penalty box, and he unfortunately took my advice, which was to pass the puck off to teammmates (instead of doing all the work himself, and which would enable me to “get in his way”), and then go to a spot where they could get the puck back to him, so that he could score with less effort. His speed was too much for me when not carrying the puck, and he was the difference maker in our game. He toasted (roasted may be a better term!) me quite nicely in the bar upstairs after the game.

But it also needs a change in Washington. We need better laws to stop the flow of guns in this country.””

      The entire argument against me being woke is I drink soda and watch sports. Oh. I also make of Tgclown but I did that long before woke was a thing. Jason has never found any posts where I said I supported woke ideas or culture. There are many posts where I said woke and cancel culture are destructive.

She is unfocused and making this about herself.

      She’s like the dumped spouse that keeps going on about it and never giving it up once everyone is sooooo tired of hearing about it.

      You already have many times.

      I am mocking you for acting like a little girl and not for being sexually inappropriate with one.

      BS. You constantly refer to my players as my buddies and friends. That implies grooming them or being inappropriately close to children. If you wanted to say what you claim, you would have said “Stop acting like a little girl” or something similar. You did not. Your meaning from what you did not say and what you did say is very clear.

    483. Bitterlaw says:

      You may not be a sexual predator but you are definitely a whining little p*ssy.

      If I called you a chicken hawk and a member of NAMBLA because you nail young teens, you would rightfully be outraged. I don’t think you do, but I could just make dark accusations against you. It is what you have done to me. Why don’t you be a man and admit it?

    484. Tgca says:

      486

      I have no intention in apologizing to you for something that was not intended. You deserve no apology so you won’t get it from me.

      The fact that I push your buttons on something you manufacture in your head is your problem. You tried this same BS in the past with other issues until we called you in it.

      …and don’t try bringing NYC in as your ALLY because I already explained to him to go back and read the history before commenting as their is no truth to your statements.

      I can easily bring in my ALLY too who has refuted your interpretation as well but this is between us so be a REAL man and stop trying to bring others to your piss-poor defense.

      Grow up you damn lil sissy!

      You keep behaving like this and I will not let you take me to your favorite gay bar or metrosexual eatery in Center City when I make my way back to the area.

    486. Bitterlaw says:

    491. Bitterlaw says:

      Every post where you said that I want to “hang around teens” and called them my buddies and friends. Every one of those posts very clearly called me out for having inappropriate relationships with my players.

      My interactions with player are always in the open and with multiple witnesses. I have never been accused of anything inappropriate. Until you accused me of it with your “button pushing.” I have waited for long periods after games so another coach is not alone with a player. I have also never left a player to wait alone for parents after a game.

      We’re just all soooooo stoopid and Trump has these magical powers that keep all us folks slaves to him.

      Can he win a GOP Primary and the General in PA?:

      https://www.wtae.com/article/sean-parnell-running-for-us-senate-pennsylvania/36397650#

    511. Wes says:

      I just looked Parnell up, Sheep. His political bio seems to consist strictly of a previous House loss. He’s very Trumpy, so that aspect looks like a mixed bag. On the other hand, he’s a veteran and, if nominated, will be running in a Biden midterm.

      I’d say he’s credible at least.

    512. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Wes:
      Last night Anchorage Alaska had its Mayoral race. The Democrat was heavily favored. Here are the results with 8,000 additional ballots to count:

      https://www.muni.org/Departments/Assembly/Clerk/Elections/Election%20Results/Unofficial%20Results%202021-0511.pdf

      This would be a huge win if Bronson, the GOP candidate, prevails.

    513. jason says:

      Just .16 percent votes separate Forrest Dunbar from Dave Bronson in the race for Anchorage mayor, with 72,000 ballots counted. As of now, Dunbar leads by 114 votes.

      The ballots counted so far did not include those vote-in-person ballots from Tuesday, or any of the ballots that were placed into drop boxes today. Those ballots will lean conservative, as many conservative voters vote on the last day.”

    514. jason says:

      Parnell narrowly lost to Connor Lamb, so I would prefer he try again under more favorable circumstances.

    515. jason says:

      I don’t have a dog in the sexual predator fight, but again, nobody here thinks Bitter is a sexual predator and nobody here said that.

      Bitter criticizes me for “interpreting” what he says, but then turns around and does the same with Tgca.

      Tgca does love calling Bitter the metrosexual BS because it gets a rise out of him.

      Bitter should do what he does when sits in front of the TV for hours and gets called a racist by entitled millionaires.

      Not worry about it because he is not a racist.

    516. Bitterlaw says:

      I also coach boys basketball.

      No one in charge. . ..

    527. Phil says:

      A good friend of ours lives across the street. She is retired and over the past two years has substituted at the local high school. Subs currently make about $115 a day here. She normally subbed about 8 to 10 days a month. Since last April (over a year) she has been getting an unemployment check of Just under $2000 a month courtesy of Covid. She made that much exactly one month over the last couple of years she subbed. Moreover, she is due to get her two grand in unemployment through next September. That of course will carry her through the summer months when in normal times she wouldn’t be making a dime since school is out during June, July, and August.

      This is insane.

    528. Dylan says:

      535–Just shows you how a once prosperous country (think Venezuela) can vote in politicians who can destroy the fabric of the work ethic and within less than a single generation, the country is irrevocably changed for the worse. There is going to be so much pain here for average folks between gas/food/clothing/utility inflation. I fear the stranglehold of big tech over the news will not allow for a Reagan style 1980 comeback. I hope I am wrong.

    529. Dylan says:

      And the guillotine has fallen on Cheney’s proverbial neck!

    530. Phil says:

      Oh, and of course my neighbor hasn’t subbed a single day over the last 13 months. The high school hasn’t been able to find any substitutes during the past school year. I wonder why.

    531. Phil says:

      Liz ousted.

      Now Liz just needs to be ousted from her actual seat. Wyoming can do better.

    535. Phil says:

      The only way she retains her seat is if Republicans don’t unite behind a single candidate in the primary. Currently there are four unfortunately. Her ceiling is 30% and that could, in theory, put her back in with a plurality, especially with Wyoming law that allows Democrats to register as Republicans on primary day.

      You forgot the Oprah interview!

      Liz will spend 90 minutes discussing how stoopid the Trump voters are for being misled and how patriarchal the GOP is in this day and age that men are afraid of a strong chubby woman.

      She will discuss how she was her own woman unlike Elise and all the other GOP women who are beholden to Trump and his male sycophants.

      The Cheneys have no clue how to prepare for the wars they launch and inevitably suffer blowback.

      Stefanik actually put in the yeoman’s work last year to help Republicans gain seats and will have laser focus on checking Biden after the midterms. This is a welcome development.

      Although some on here have already conceded the midterms to the Democrats–as if these Eisenhower-era GOP majority levels are unassailable–it appears House Republicans are serious about reversing the 2018 and 2020 results.

      Kudos to them!

    549. Dylan says:

      552–Things will start moving very quickly now.

      1. Inflation–it will be 8.4% next month.
      2. Harris will be President by end of the year. Biden is out of gas.
      3. HR 1 will be jammed through the senate along with the “Infrastructure” bill—Manchin isnt going to save us.

    550. DW says:

      Responding to the gas shortage on the east coast, President Biden has issued a statement this morning condemning the internal combustion engine as the problem. He then signed an executive order that the big automakers must by the end of the year release new hybrid cars that run on electricity and human urine. Consumers will need to be careful not to mix the two sources of power as the cars are refueled.

    551. Dylan says:

      Wes–the GOP has to get on top of the Vote By Mail infrastructure if they want to assure 2022 victory. I’m not sure that is possible in the key states but they need to have their court challenges lined up well in advance. They cant count on the courts to take these issues up quickly.

    552. Tgca says:

      556

      Sorry Wes!

      Liz would disagree with you.

      50M+ Trump voters and 70% of GOP CongressCritters are just too stoopid to realize they are going down the wrong path…and only Liz can save the party.

      Her strategy is for long term GOP success by spending the next two years complaining about Trump and trying to reverse the spell Trump has over all of us even if it means GOP election losses.

      No need to worry about what Dems are doing because Trump and his voters are the real enemy.

      Why can’t you understand this BRILLIANT strategy to grow the GOP?

    553. Cash Cow TM says:

      HUH?

      I thought in 2020 that Trump was only supported by white male racists.
      At least that was what the MSM and Dems told us.
      ######################################

      “…The share of Trump voters who were women or people of color in last year’s election was 57.2%, up from 54.8% in 2016, according to newly released data from Catalist. The former president also increased his support among all racial demographics in 2020, with the exception of white men, making a 7-point gain among nonwhite women, a 4-point gain with nonwhite men, a 1-point gain with white women, and a 1-point loss among white men.”

      https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/data-show-majority-of-trump-s-2020-support-came-from-women-and-people-of-color/ar-BB1gCakd?ocid=msedgdhp

    554. Phil says:

      Dylan, HB1 won’t be jammed through. The filibuster would have to be undone. That’s not happening. If it did that would open the door to DC statehood, court packing and every other radical crap bill imaginable. Manchin and the junior senator from Arizona don’t want to go there for political reasons of self preservation.

      I agree that if BB1 got through the Republican Party would be dead as a door nail in future elections. Of course, in the long term that’s about where the Republican Party is anyway.

    555. Wes says:

      I have my own problems with Trump and think many people grossly overrate his political skills, Tg. That said, Liz needed to get over it. She couldn’t, so House Republicans put a younger, harder working, more telegenic person in her place.

      That’s a great start as Republicans win only by focusing on the deleterious effects of what the Biden Administration is doing rather than focusing on the bogeyman of a defeated former President.

    556. jason says:

      “The share of Trump voters who were women or people of color in last year’s election was 57.2%, up from 54.8% in 2016, according to newly released data from Catalist.

      Yep, that is why I said Trump EXPANDED the R base.

      Unfortunately, the deplorable hating suburban elitist Rs are doing everything they can to make sure these gains are erased.

    557. Cash Cow TM says:

      Sadly, DRUDGE is having a long dry spell of lack of articles about monkeys and deer.

      Cow is despondent.

      The news industry is really going downhill.

    558. Wes says:

      We obviously have different definitions of expanding a base when a sitting President gets nearly the exact same share of the vote as the last defeated presidential challenger while the opposition party returns nearly to the level of support it enjoyed in 2012.

      Trump sowed the seeds for expanding the GOP base just as Al Smith did for the Democrats in 1928; however, it will take another political figure–probably Ron DeSantis serving as the GOP’s FDR to Trump’s Smith–to solidify the gains Trump made and truly expand the base.

    559. Phil says:

      Liz needed to go for the reasons Wes just mentioned. Need to work to get the House and she was a roadblock to that happening. Since Democrats will pick up at least one seat, probably two to get the Senate and have the votes to end the filibuster it’s vital Republicans take the House.

    560. Phil says:

      Wes is also right that DeSantis is the answer to expanding on Trumps gains to broaden the party. The answer is not Trump going forward.

    561. jason says:

      That’s a great start as Republicans win only by focusing on the deleterious effects of what the Biden Administration is doing rather than focusing on the bogeyman of a defeated former President.”

      Trying to “dump Trump” isn’t going to get the R party any more votes, but is sure as heck going to lose a lot of votes.

      Nobody can make the case against Biden’s policies better than Trump.

      As we are beginning to see, Trump’s policies are going to be looking better and better in contrast to Biden’s.

      The MSM, the Dems and the Never Trumpers are anxious to erase Trump.

      With good reason.

    562. Wes says:

      McCain, 2008-46%

      Romney, 2012-47%

      Trump, 2016-46%

      Trump, 2020-47%

      Obama, 2008-53%

      Obama, 2013-51%

      Hillary, 2016-48%

      Biden, 2020-51%

      Republicans still have work to do. Trump helped in some ways and hurt in others. The trick is to get someone who can increase the vote share the GOP gets AND decrease the vote share the Dems get.

    563. Tgca says:

      565

      Cash

      There’s a post for you in 402 to address your concerns.

    564. jason says:

      We obviously have different definitions of expanding a base”

      Yes we do. This is my definition.

      “The former president also increased his support among all racial demographics in 2020, with the exception of white men”

    565. Wes says:

      Phil’s still dooming on the Senate. Biden’s policies are hitting people in the worst possible place–their wallets. That’s hardly a formula for making a case for giving them an outright majority in the Senate–especially since Dems have demonstrably weak incumbents in NH, GA, and AZ while Republicans have one marginal open seat (PA) and one incumbent in state Biden carried (WI) who’s already proved his electoral viability twice on hostile terrain against literally the best candidate Dems could throw at him.

    566. jason says:

      I like DeSantis.

      But let’s not put the cart before the horses, he is still a political midget compared to Trump.

      And if you want DeSantis to inherit Trump’s legacy, don’t try to destroy the inheritance before it is passed on.

      Don’t doubt for a moment that the attacks on Trump are also directed at DeSantis exactly for that reason.

    567. Wes says:

      That increase got him 46% of the vote and a defeat while his opponent cut into Trump’s base, increased the Dems’ vote share by nearly 3%, and won.

      In other words, Trump accomplished as an incumbent exactly what McCain accomplished in 2008. As I said, Republicans have work to do. Trump sowed seeds, but someone else is going to have to cultivate them and reap the resulting produce.

    568. jason says:

      When Cheney attacks Trump, you are naive if you don’t think it is also an attack on DeSantis, Hawley, and anyone else who doesn’t accept her narrative.

    569. Tgca says:

      572

      We also have different understanding of “predator” too.

    570. Gordon Allen says:

      Wes.Nobody overrates Trump’s political skills. Not being a politician he didn’t have any.
      He was great at identifying long suppressed issues of importance to many Americans,voicing them against a fairly unified Establishment who wanted to keep them buried.
      He also showed extraordinary fidelity to his promises, unheard of for real politicians(especially Republicans), and great leadership and courage in achieving many.
      This earned him great respect and loyalty from many, including me.He was also flatly cheated in 2020.
      But a good politician he wasn’t, and that’s why I want him to be a Kingmaker, not Candidate. I support DeSantis, because in many(not all) policy areas he is very Trumpian, gutsy and not easily intimidated (also Trumpian), but he is a politician, and can be indirect where Trump never was, and overall personally less threatening in appearance to some.
      I suspect Trump ultimately will support Desantis as a logical heir to Trumpism.It’s a long way off, but I don’t see a Republican who will beat him, certainly not any incumbent US Republican Representative or Senator who fairly or not are perceived as one of “them”

    571. Wes says:

      Dems will readily attack DeSantis. No one disputes that. DeSantis has also navigated the minefield better than Trump.

      It’s like saying Republicans needed to return to Goldwater in 1980 rather than going with Reagan. Goldwater laid the groundwork, but Reagan reached a destination because of what Goldwater had done.

    572. Phil says:

      It’s the seats that are up in 2022 that is the problem, Wes. NH being the sole GOP pickup opportunity.

    573. Phil says:

      DeSantis. Solidifies Trump gains while not driving away as many suburban whites as Trump did with his rough edges.

      Democrats terrified. They should be.

    574. Wes says:

      Liz Cheney is a political has-been who had no business in Congress–much less the leadership–Jason. Republicans replaced her because she thought anyone allied with Trump or not beholden to her outmoded wing of the party should be the target of her barbs rather than, you know, the political opposition.

      That McCarthy got rid of her while McConnell made no attempt to defend her tells me exactly where the GOP is looking going forward–and it’s not to Liz Cheney or anyone tied to her.

    575. jason says:

      And btw, Trump not only expanded the R base by bringing in different demographics, he got over 11 million MORE votes in 2020 than he did in 2016.

    576. Wes says:

      You must not have been paying to the two special elections if you think AZ and GA aren’t vulnerable, Phil. Kelly ran well behind his polling numbers against McSally and has drawn in all but announcement his strongest GOP opponent in AG Brnovich. Warnock had to have everything but an act of God occur to eke out a .8% victory over Loeffler and openly endorsed moving the All Star Game out of state, this denying his own constituents work.

      Do those really sound like locks for reelection to you?

    577. Bitterlaw says:

    580. jason says:

      DeSantis has also navigated the minefield better than Trump.”

      Too early to say that IMO.

      One can argue nobody navigated minefields better than Trump.

      I think DeSantis has good political instincts. He has youth and good looks on his side, is building a nice resume, and is fast on his feet politically. And he is smart enough to know he won’t go anywhere by disowning Trump.

      But if he wants to fill Trump’s shoes, he will need a lot more than all that.

    581. Wes says:

      And Biden expanded the Dems’ base by gaining more votes than Trump and running 6 million votes ahead of him, Jason.

      That’s a part of the equation you overlook because it doesn’t fit your narrative.

      As I said, Al Smith expanded the Dems’ base in 1928 by establishing the urban voting blocs Dems enjoy to this day and decreasing Hoover’s margins from what Republicans normally enjoyed among blacks. It took Roosevelt four years later to make something tangible of those shifts.

    582. Phil says:

      I am having trouble seeing any kind of GOP bench in Georgia, Wes.

    583. Wes says:

      Phil just made my case. DeSantis barely beat Gillum but looks solid for reelection despite Dems’ caterwauling about his lack Covid-restriction policies.

      He hasn’t disavowed Trump, nor should he. He should, however, look at what Trump did right and emulate it while discarding what Trump did wrong. Thus far, he has been doing exactly that.

    584. jason says:

      I agree with wes that (without HR1) GA and AZ are vulnerable.

      However the GA GOP frontrunner is Hershel Walker.

      He may or may not be a good candidate, certainly he is completely untested.

      In AZ, Brnovich is a good candidate.

    585. Wes says:

      Republicans already have a successful Atlanta-area businessman in the race, Phil. Herschel Walker is considering. Several other prominent Republicans are looking at the race.

      Just because Loeffler was a dud chosen in a bizarre manner by a Governor with the political instincts of a paperweight and caught in a perfect storm of an undertow, that doesn’t mean the GAGOP went to having no credible candidates in a single night against a flawed incumbent like Warnock.

    586. Wes says:

      Of course in GA, Republicans get two bites at the apple if neither candidate gets to 50%.

      Let’s not overlook how Warnock actually won.

    587. jason says:

      And Biden expanded the Dems’ base by gaining more votes than Trump and running 6 million votes ahead of him, Jason.”

      Not so sure Biden expanded the Dem base, except for a 1% improvement in the white male percentage.

      I define “expanding the base” as getting higher percentages in certain demographics Rs previously did poorly in.

      Also, I think there is considerable fraud in that “6 million” advantage but even if there wasn’t, 5 million of that advantage comes from CA.

      Take out CA and NY, and Trump won the rest of the country by about 1 million votes. THAT is where the expanded base could help in future elections.

      I am not saying votes in CA and NY don’t count. But in a tight EC vote, they are essentially “wasted”.

    588. Bitterlaw says:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc2XVFtKQ_w

      Despite his shameful association with the evil Dallas Cowboys, I hope Herschel Walker runs and wins.

    589. Phil says:

      Herschel needs to make the move from Texas to Georgia first. If he is serious residence won’t be a problem as nobody can deny his Georgia roots.

    590. Wes says:

      The only problem with saying “Take out X state to get Y result” is that we have 50 states, Jason. We don’t get to choose which states’ results matter.

      I could argue removing TX from the equation would increase Biden’s popular-vote margin over Trump. It would be silly to make that case though.

      Trump lost ground in terms of states and EVs from 2016. That’s indisputable. Even if you argue fraud contributed to Biden’s increase in votes over Hillary, it wasn’t nearly enough to make the results close.

      For an incumbent President to increase his percentage of the vote by 1% and lose while his opponent increase his party’s vote share by 3% and wins indicates one party has expanded its base more than the others–even if you count the dubious metric of slight gains among certain demographics while losing ground nationwide as “expanding the base.”

      The goal in 2024 should be to increase the GOP base AND decrease the Dems’ base. Trump failed at that and lost.

    591. Wes says:

      By your definition, Jason, any vote above the one necessary to carry a state is wasted. That’s a myopic view–and not one likely to produce a victory.

    592. Tgca says:

      595

      Agreed. I’ve been saying this all along. These elections are about the EC and not national vote margins. In both 2016 and 2020, Trump was either ahead or very closely tied across the country without CA and NY.

      CA and NY are a lost cause to the GOP nationally due to the policies and demographics of those states at this time.

      I doubt the GOP is going to be successful in CA and NY until things get soooo bad that people feel the pain at home and want to try something different.

      Messaging won’t change that until they feel REAL pain.

      This is what happened to propel Giuliani to mayor in the early 90s after a disastrous leadership by Dinkins in NYC. I worked in NYC and saw the dramatic change once Rudy took over. It went from a dirty higher crime city to a much cleaner safer city.

      I don’t think CA is there yet. Perhaps if and when Calpers collapses will CA feel the pain. Look at what’s going on with their utility blackouts and brownouts.

      Also, though Latinos are conservative in many social issues, they tend to come from countries where they rely on the gubbermint for benefits and CA exploits that very well, compared to TX and AZ which take different approaches.

      It’s a mindset, and until the mindset changes, you cannot expand the base in those areas.

      This is why the Dems are trying to flood the US with new recruits of illegal immigrants to be dependent upon the Dems. It’s indoctrination that the gubbermint is what will help you get ahead and who is the best advocate of that, the Dems.

    593. Bitterlaw says:

      I remember when the Eagles were interested in trading for Walker. There were signs that asked drivers to “Honk for Herschel.” He went to the Vikings in what turned out to be an amazingly one-sided outcome.

    594. jason says:

      By your definition, Jason, any vote above the one necessary to carry a state is wasted. That’s a myopic view–and not one likely to produce a victory.”

      Nah, you missed the point.

      I am saying the “6 million” advantage is not that helpful to the Dems if 80%+ is concentrated in CA.

      Also that an expanded R base would be helpful to Rs in battleground states with those types of demographics.

      If Rs were running up huge margins in Texas and FL like the Dems are in CA I would say the same thing.

    595. Tgca says:

      National popular vote does not matter. EC votes matter.

      Also, the MSM and Big Tech probably cut at least 5 points from Trump with 24/7 hammering. They constantly undermined his policies as well as people in his administration.

      People often read headlines and not the fine print.

      I know folks who never heard of the Hunter Biden scandals tied to Biden. That changes public perception. In fact a couple polls after election stated something like 10% would have changed their votes had they known about the Biden corruption. It sure how accurate they are but it is common sense that if a corrupt candidate is exposed, they lose a level of support.

      I would bet Wes’s life that if we had a balanced MSM and Big Tech, and Trump did nothing else different, he would have won the 2020 election by a few points.

    596. jason says:

      “Dave Wasserman
      @Redistrict
      If you think Liz Cheney’s GOP leadership post is an issue voters are going to care about in the midterm elections… prepare to be sorely disappointed”

      Yep, Cheney is going to get a lot of interviews and will be the MSM darling while it suits them but it will it won’t be an issue in 2022.

    597. Wes says:

      I doubt it, Tg. Trump was still Trump and didn’t run a particularly effective campaign. Big Tech and the media clearly hurt, but Trump personally contributed to his perennial unpopularity. It would have been closer without those things, but without Hillary as a foil, I still say Trump would have lost, although by a reduced margin.

    598. jason says:

      In a nutshell, Trump expanded the R base AND lost at least 3 states due to election fraud. He also got 11 million more votes than 2016. He expanded his vote in FL and still won OH by half a million votes like in 2016.

      So all this BS about how Trump failed this or that, that he was unpopular, that he pissed everyone off, blah blah blah is unconvincing to me.

      IMO, had he not lost his best asset, the economy, to COVID, he would have won re-election easily and nobody would be talking about how unpopular he was and how much he alienated woke suburban voters.

      Trump is still by far the best asset the R party has to win elections. Period.

    599. jason says:

      I still say Trump would have lost, although by a reduced margin.”

      More reduced than 40k votes in 3 states?

    600. Wes says:

      No. More reduced as in losing by fewer EVs, Jason.

      Most of this I agree with, Phil.

      I don’t agree fraud was the final determinant in the race. I think Trump was unprepared for the hatred spewed against him by the Left and arrogant after his surprise victory over Hillary. He sowed the seeds of his own defeat, and Democrats left nothing to chance against him.

      Bitter would not be one of my HHR best friends if I thought he was a sexual predator under the traditional definition of that term.

      I agree we have differences in Latin voters depending on country of origin, how they were raised, economic status, education level, etc.

      That’s why you see different voter patterns among them in certain areas just as you see with Caucasians.

      We are not all the same and we should not be lumped into one bucket and that is why when I hear these non-Latin Caucasian describe us in a manner as if we were all monolithic, I find it offensive. Just like any ethnic group, there are stereotypes and consistencies that exist but there are also many differences.

      This reminds me of the Madeline Albright ignorance when she says “there’s a special place in Hell for women that don’t support Clinton.”

      It’s time for Republicans to focus on Biden and move past the Trump Administration. Getting rid of Liz Cheney was a good way to start that since she wanted to keep fighting Trump rather than Biden.

      Moving past Trump is like telling the GOP to move past Reagan. It won’t work!

      Without Trump, the leaders would be the Jeb and Rubio coalitions.

      Trump has vast loyalty in the party and he has changed the GOP landscape from a “surrender at all costs” to a “take the fight to them” party.

      He has given the GOP party hope during the changing demographics not normally friendly to the GOP.

      Without Trump’s influence the next 5 years, the GOP will not have much success at the national level.

      This is why Trump still has great favor with the vast majority of the party.

      If it were not for Trump, we would not have DeSantis as FL gubbernor now and he would be a virtually unknown and folks would still be pushing Jeb and Rubio on the GOP.

      Instead, DeSantis is building on the Trump foundation set forth in 2016.

      I truly believe he would have easily won re-election without the pandemic and all the irregularities it imposed on society in a short timeframe.

      That’s a loaded question, Jason, because Trump was the President. It’s like asking what Republican would have done better than Hoover in 1932 or GHWB in 1992.

      LisaB

      I agree teens can be naive and unaware of what dangers lurk out there.

      Even someone as BRILLIANT as me learned that lesson the hard way.

      I had three grown women trying to seduce me as a 16 year old. One old fat divorcee from FL tried her best and she would grab and touch me and told me she was going to get me in her bed, and she would do this in front of some others all the time and the more alcohol she had in her, the more aggressive she was. She was a funny and generally nice lady but the thought of being with someone 20 years my age was gross to me.

      Another one in her late 30s used to drive me home from work and rub my leg and ask me very seducing questions. She was in an unhappy marriage so I felt bad for her but would just ignore her flirts because it beat taking the bus. She never did this at work, just in the car.

      Lastly, another one would allow us to drink at her place with her kids and one night we both were under the influence and went waaaay too far, as she was more than twice my age and thereafter felt rejected when I would avoid her continuing advances and attempts to engage with her again. I remember her one time saying to me and another guy who was also 16 that she wished we were older. Not a bad person, just a lonely person otherwise.

      None of this ruined my life or destroyed my soul, and maybe it was because of my age at the time, 16 instead of 10, and the fact that boys may handle these differently.

      Though I was grossed out by these women at 16 because they were ancient to me, I also understand they were all wrecked in one way or another with two of them being lonely alcoholics with no mate in their life. I have never seen them again or wish them ill will though they would probably be prosecuted and jailed in today’s world.

      So I don’t always subscribe that every sexual encounter of a teen is devastating even if later you regret or frown on it, especially at the mid-teenager level. I regret that one encounter but rarely think about it so I doubt it had any lasting impact on my life.

      It is definitely different though for those that have not reached puberty or certain maturity levels to be lured, tricked, or forced into a sexual situation.

      In no way do I excuse this behavior, I’m just saying it’s not always as devastating as sine think even if it seems gross later on.

      In fact, many gay men I knew that had their 1st sexual encounter as an underage teenager, were with older men, and some with married older men with families.

      I had one friend who was riding the NYC subways and picking up guys at 15 because if he tried it at school, he would be beaten silly.

      How times change.

      He tried the same BS with me and others regarding his niece and we called him on it. He agreed not to bring it up anymore because no one ever implied anything bad about her, the opposite in fact.

      He also made callous statements about LisaB knowing she lost a child.

      Heh. Jason changes the names and states and applies Al Gore’s 2000 cycle talking points to the 2020 election.”

      Maybe I have forgotten, but I remember Gore had a bunch of excuses, the best one being that Dems were too stupid to vote (or figure out the “butterfly” ballot).

      But I really don’t remember fraud being one of his allegations.

    657. Wes says:

      Well, damn. Somehow the post eliminated all the spaces I put in.

    658. Wes says:

      Then my post disappeared after I posted.

      Odd.

    659. Phil says:

      I’m a former teacher who has worked, as well as coached children for thirty four years. I know first hand how vulnerable anyone in that same or similar situation is to accusations of inappropriate sexual conduct with the young people you work with on a daily basis. I have seen colleagues falsely accused of inappropriate behavior on multiple occasions who have had there reputations and even careers destroyed. It’s no laughing matter. Serious stuff and not some place you want to go in jest or any way else.

    660. Wes says:

      You obviously missed the claims that Republicans rigged the election against Gore in 2000 because the FLSOS was a Republican while JEB! was Governor and somehow suppressed Dem votes. Democrats claimed the courts shut down the counting to give GWB the victory. They said the butterfly ballot was designed to keep them from being able to cast ballots for Gore. They said cops set up checkpoints on the way to black polling precincts.

      They were making every allegation of fraud possible just as you’re doing.

      How does it feel to finally come around to Al Gore’s way of thinking after 20 years?

    661. Wes says:

      Full disclosure:

      I voted for Trump in 2020, and I would have voted for Gore had I known GWB would be a Hoover-level Trainwreck as President.

    662. Tgca says:

      Phil

      But sexual comments against gays are fine then?

      Sounds like:

      We can mock you for being gay but you can’t mock me for being a straight person because people might take it seriously.

      That sounds fair.

    663. Tgca says:

      Then perhaps we need Nancy Pelosi and team to come in to HHR and outline what words can and cannot be used in the future.

      In other words, HHR goes woke too.

      No more offensive jokes!

      Everyone needs to pause and be respectful of one another’s views regardless of what they may be.

    664. Phil says:

      I would never have voted for Gore but knowing what I know now about Bush, I would definitely NOT have voted for W – either time he ran. I am ashamed I supported Bush’s going into Iraq and I am ashamed I voted for the elitist open borders swamp creature that he obviously is.

    665. Wes says:

      I failed to put in the follow-up sentence I meant to type in 670:

      Too bad we didn’t get the result I (retroactively) wanted in 2000 and got an even worse result in 2020.

    666. Wes says:

      I 100% would have not only voted for Gore but also bussed 2,000 Democrats to the polls to stop the Bush Administration aborning, Phil.

      GWB was a Trainwreck who gave us Obama. He just wasn’t worth it in the White. He’s shown his true persona in recent years by going full leftist. I highly suspect he always has been a liberal but masked his identity for political reasons.

    667. Bitterlaw says:

      I wonder what Bitter’s reaction will be when somebody actually accuses him of something real.

      Tgca accused me of something real. You saw the response. It will look like that.

    668. Wes says:

      To be fair, Bitterlaw does prefer states that elect corrupt child slave rapists to the Senate to states whose Senators have Southern accents. There’s that uncontrovertible truth.

      You knew I wasn’t going to miss a chance to take that shot at you, Bitter.

    669. Phil says:

      GWB was a trait wreck that gave us Obama.

      ABSOLUTELY correct.

    670. Tgca says:

      Getting Bitter to finally criticize Senator Menendez from the great Sewer State was like pulling teeth.

      He dodged Wes’ repeated claims with nonresponsive comments.

      So for someone SOOOOOO horrified by sexual predators, he had to be dragged kicking and screaming for months I believe until accepting the accusation of Senator Menendez.

      What a bunch of BS.

      At best it would be “voter suppression”, I never heard Gore or his minions claim “fraud”.

      You don’t think there was fraud in 2020 because it doesn’t fit your narrative about why Trump lost.

      685

      Disagree!

      Still believe fraud in those few selected cities/counties of less than an aggregate of 100K votes that led to an electoral loss.

      Popular vote did not matter as that was not where the game was played. It was played out in the EC.

      Numerous affidavits signed under penalty of perjury by those reporting irregularities on voting night. People don’t go out of their way to file erroneous affidavits and risk being prosecuted for no reason.

      I will not believe the election was fair and free of theft until I see full forensics analysis.

      I have worked too long in my career to see fraud and theft by numerous means. I have been involved in cases where we caught fraud and fraudsters, many by clever means. All fraud elements of opportunity, rationalization and incentive existed in this election.

      Every single indicator of re-election was in Trumps favor and he was looking like he was going to win that evening but they all went wrong at the same time for the 1st time in history, that compiled with affidavits and votes found in the middle of the night make for a serious indication of fraud.

      I would be laughed off witnessing if I applied this 2020 election standard elsewhere.

      Let the forensic audits run their course and fully cooperate to get to the truth. Anything short of that is suspicious why folks don’t want an accountable audit to see if there are any supports to the fraud claims.

      Over 80 court challenges on timing and standing but NOT one that looked at forensic or evidentiary data. NOT ONE!

      A majority of Americans believe Biden won legitimately.

      Therefore, under Jason’s own argument, Biden won legitimately.

      Thanks, Jason.

    689. Wes says:

      Heh.

      There’s the minuscule brain I was talking about.

    690. Wes says:

      Must not be very convincing. I know I’m not convinced…and never will be.

      I know what Democrats did with voting safeguards in states like Pa. I also know how well Trump did in states like Florida and Ohio where the voting safeguards stayed in place. I also know how Trump did in the 50 most swing counties throughout the US. I’m not a fool.

      But she is concerned with helping the GOP win and grow by questioning the integrity of the House GOP leader on NBC.

      She is beyond selfish and it’s incredibly ironic that she accuses Trump of hurting the GOP when she is the one providing the Dems 2022 election talking points to keep the GOP from taking back the House and is out of step with the vast majority of the GOP.

      You’re beclowning yourself. Just go away and fail at playing Risk on a board the way your dad failed at playing Risk in the Middle East.

    714. Phil says:

      I must say, Liz is indeed making a complete ass of herself. Even those Republicans that have never been thrilled with Trump are sick of her whining about an ex president. They want her to address what Biden and his politburo are doing to this country, this society, and this culture.

      Shut the hell up, lady. Join the other caucus for God’s sake. How tone death can this broad get? She wants to purge the ninety plus percent in her party that are sick and tired of hearing about January 6th? Good luck with that one, sister. She has about the same influence on Republican voters as the Lincoln project….namely zero. She’d have realized that too if she didn’t spend all her time hanging out on left wing network shows are spending all her time writing op eds in the Washington Post.

      Tgca,

      All in all, I think we are a polite bunch, but I do think the words you chose to use with Bitterlaw’s volunteer coaching gigs have gone too far. If you think otherwise, ok. Just letting you know how it comes across to me.

      Oh please NYC. You’re delusional or unable to read English.

      People telling people to die here, or telling people to go get themself a boy to screw, or ridiculing someone for losing a child or a family member, or making degrading, racistand homophobic comments about people’s background has all been said here plus more by regular posters still here and as well some no longer posting here. All these remarks I refer to were by posters who posted here this week.

      We are not a polite bunch! People constantly call each other’s names, needle one another, degrade, mock, and often it pisses folks off but no one here is innocent of not deserving comments directed at them.

      It’s HHR which is no different than many other places on the internet.

      Yep. It’s gotten nastier over the years but that’s because people are probably just older and tired of it all just like the rest of the US and infighting has gotten worse, especially online.

      If you don’t want to be mocked don’t mock anyone else it’s that simple. As far as I’m concerned nothing is off limits when you mock others about their life and get into sensitive areas.

      Mocking a straight guy who thinks it’s about pedophile is no worse than mocking an AA about his race or a gay man about his orientation. If you can’t see that then that’s your own underlying bigotry at work cherry-picking what you find offensive at the expense of what others find offensive.

      So get the historical facts before trying to lecture folks.

      You be better to look at your life traveled and see how you got to wander along a road of self-pity and misery and how it makes you so bitter and angry before you sit and judge others.

      If you don’t want to be mocked then don’t mock others. It’s that simple!

      If you don’t want people to cross the line with you, then don’t cross the line with them.

      Otherwise, accept nothing will change in your life for the better.

      I can dish it out but not take? You sad, broken little man. You called me a predator. I never called you that or implied it. In almost 17 years here, I have been called mentally ill, incompetent as a lawyer, a failure who lives off his wife, fat, a supporter of child rape because a Senator in a state I have not lived in since 1994 was elected…I was even told by a poster that I was the reason my niece killed herself. I did not call for that poster to be banned. I have never disparaged or belittled Tgca for his orientation. I have disparaged and belittled him for being a douche.

      I have taken everything thrown at me and responded in kind. My one regret is that I forgot about lisab’s situation. I apologized for it and still feel terrible that I was so hurtful. That does not change that she is vicious and vindictive and playing all of you for fools. However, I do not believe in redemption so I should be judged harshly for that awful post.

      Mr. Woke still mocking those opposed to woke culture as “making gestures”.

      But no, he is not defending woke culture.

      Ah yes, now 100 posts about how he should be able to drink Coke.

    740. jason says:

      Show me the post where Tgca called you a predator.

      It is probably together with the one where I told you not to watch woke sports, go to Mass or drink Coke.

    742. Bitterlaw says:

      All of Tgca’s posts about me hanging out with my adolescent friends and buddies called me a predator. NYC saw through his lies about he claimed he meant.

    743. NYCmike says:

      “Mocking a straight guy who thinks it’s about pedophile is no worse than mocking an AA about his race or a gay man about his orientation. If you can’t see that then that’s your own underlying bigotry at work cherry-picking what you find offensive at the expense of what others find offensive.

      So get the historical facts before trying to lecture folks.”

      -No lectures. Just telling you what I think.

    744. jason says:

      So you actually don’t have ANY post where Tgca called you a predator.

      Got it.

    745. jason says:

      Let’s make this clear.

      Refusing to watch woke millionaires lecture you on social justice and racism and to refuse to watch NFL and NBA messages supporting BLM is a “gesture”.

      Gesture being defined by MW as something said or done by way of formality or courtesy, as a symbol or token, or for its effect on the attitudes of others. In other words denying viewership and consequently revenue to woke companies does not matter.

      Yes or no? No BS needed, just answer yes or no.

    746. jason says:

      Bitter now has to use NYC as a crutch?

      How far have we fallen.

      And no, saying you hang out with young players is not the same as calling you a predator. Certainly not every adult that hangs out with teenagers is not a predator.

      Just say it is a lie, I am sure it is, and leave at that.

      By escalating it into something Tgca did not say, you are just giving him ammunition to shoot you with.

    747. jason says:

      Certainly not every adult that hangs out with teenagers is a predator.”

      Corrected it.

    748. jason says:

      P for President!

      “George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), applauded House Republicans on Wednesday for ousting Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her position as the No. 3 House GOP leader. Bush tweeted that “we need leaders in Congress that stand up for conservative Republican ideology, and Liz Cheney is not that leader”

    749. jason says:

      George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R)”

      Should we now say former son of Gov. Jeb Bush after he is disinherited?

      Irony meter explodes as jason, the Translation Master, who has never found any post where I supported woke culture, pretends to not see the obvious meaning of Tgca’s posts.

      752. NYC

      You are lecturing and being Bitter’s useful idiot because he is now using you as his defense to try and prove his warped view.

      I think you and Bitter need to take English comprehension classes and learn what mockery is too as well.

      I mocked him for having no friends but the teens he’s around because that is his only social outlet according to his own posts of never leaving the house or hanging out with people.

      The intent was to mock his maturity level and unable to have adults that would put up with him. Go back and read all the posts the last few months and you will see. NEVER did I suggest he had or desired sexual relations with teens.

      If he were a sexual predator, I’m sure most here would report him to the authorities, and I would not waste my time with him.

      He’s just creating drama as usual which goes to my point that he behaves like a teen girl or metrosexual teen boy to be equally inclusive.

      You’re fanning the flames of his self pity because he is now using you as his witness to prove something never said.

      You complain about the libs in NYC. Should I assume you feel that way because you are unhappy with the minority liberals there and that you’re really a racist? Should I draw those conclusions like you’re trying to draw conclusions?

    752. jason says:

      Irony meter explodes as Bitter, who has never found any post where I told him not to drink Coke, watch woke sports or go to Mass pretends to ignore dozens of posts where I showed he supports woke culture.

      Nah, nah, stop with the horsecrap. Obvious meaning my ass.

      Where is the post where he called you a predator?

      You wrote “You called me a predator”.

      Show me the post or admit that is a lie.

    754. Tgca says:

      759

      It Bitter is going to draw conclusions about “obvious” posts, then this RACIST who constantly puts down where minority lives needs to be called out for it.

      Clearly it is obvious when Bitter puts down Newark or other liberal places it’s because he’s a RACIST and wants nothing to do with the folks from those areas unless they’re doing menial labor for him.

      There are numerous posts where Bitter mocks minorities and where they live. Dint make me ask our HHR archivist LisaB to pull a few to show Bitter’s racist behavior.

      That’s racism! No other way to interpret it.

      But the irony is he’s still woke like many of his RACIST friends in Radnor and the MSM.

    755. NYCmike says:

      Tgca,

      When I go camping with my son and his fellow Boy Scouts this weekend, I will not be “hanging out” with children.

      I, along with the other fathers, will be in a supervisory/guardian position for my son and the other boys, some which will either not have their own father on the trip, or may not even have a father figure in their life. That position is one of mutual trust, and is not to be taken lightly.

      If you choose to opine/comment on my weekend activities, the words you use to characterize that relationship should reflect the seriousness of the charge the other fathers and I are taking on…….and unless you are looking to personally harm me and those other men, you will appreciate the advice you have been given by me, Bitterlaw, Phil and a couple other posters about working with youth, and respond in an appropriate fashion.

      Cheers.

    756. Bitterlaw says:

      Newark is a dump except for the 2 square blocks of skyscrapers with businesses. They have parking garages and a PATH station attached to them to keep the workers safe.

    757. Tgca says:

      764. NYC

      I know what it’s like to work with kids as I used to tutor grammar school students after school at a local church in San Francisco with a co-worker. I got to know some of the parents too through that experience.

      I also participated in Junior Achievement days at local schools where I would teach 6th graders for a day on business topics, especially in under-privileged schools where Bitter would not be caught dead entering.

      So I understand the need to ensure the highest standards of trust in the community so again, no lectures needed.

      I had gay friends who served as big brothers to underprivileged and high risk youth in San Francisco so they were under more scrutiny by society than you or Bitter will ever be, especially since there are still many of those that you are politically aligned with that believe gay men should not be around children even those most child predators are not gay men statistically speaking.

      So thanks for the lecture, but no thanks.

    758. Tgca says:

      765

      What Bitter really meant to say is:

      Newark is a run-down city of minorities that I don’t want near me or my white family. The only exception in Newark is the 2 square blocks of skyscrapers with businesses that have parking garages and a PATH station attached to them to keep the white workers safe from minorities.

      Ok. That sounds more like Bitter now.

      Denying viewership/revenue on a massive scale matters IF the business wants it to matter. If the business is willing to accept lost viewership/revenue to push a message, it does not matter.

      Oh no! Can I retract post 774.

      Bitter to post 75 posts saying I’m accusing him of being a homo when it’s not true because he’s married and sired at least two children we know of and gay men don’t do such things.

    768. NYCmike says:

      Boy Scouts have a 2-deep rule – there should always be at least 2 scouts, and preferably 2 adults. It is strictly enforced. Trips have been cancelled or cut short if that rule couldn’t be enforced, for the protection of both the child and the adult.

      How do you get “massive scale” without individuals taking action.

      Don’t bother answering, you are too woke to understand.

    779. jason says:

      Yes, being called a serial murder and a baby killer is vile and unforgivable.

      But nobody called you that either.

    781. Tgca says:

      788

      I don’t agree with you 100% Jadon.

      Dexter was a serial murder in south Florida but he only murdered bad people…really really bad people…so not all serial murdering is vile and unforgivable.

    782. jason says:

      I don’t nuance serial murderers, sorry.

    783. NYCmike says:

      “But would the Boy Scouts allow a gay man to mentor the kids?”

      -If the gay man abides by the two-deep rule, I see no reason why not.

      The music teacher in my parish parochial school is assumed to be gay, as he lives with another man. There has never been any suspicion of him doing anything untoward with children, as he has always made sure to follow simple rules – no unaccompanied “visits” with children, and the parents are always involved.

    784. Tgca says:

      Ok. I need to go run errands but maybe BitterRacist and Jadon can carry on the woke debate in my absence as Bitter downs 3 cans of Woke-a-cola and shops online for NBA and NFL sponsored clothing.

    785. jason says:

      Manchin is weak. I don’t think he actually opposes the far left agenda, but I think he sees himself as the deciding vote, and he doesn’t want to be the guy that cements socialism right NOW.

      It’s a lot on the shoulders of a weak man. “Because Manchin changed his mind, we now have full blown socialism in America”. I don’t think he wants that as a legacy.

      Of course the left will say “Manchin prevented full blown socialism in America” but he can live with that, because keeping the status quo is different from destroying it.

      Oh wow? NYC is woke now too?

      Bitter must have gotten to NYC before we could vaccinate him against wokeism.

      Just a few years ago The Boys Scouts were fighting tooth and nail to keep gay men out of the Scouts.

    788. jason says:

      Bitter has already destroyed his own woke BS.

      By saying only “mass scale denial of viewership and revenue” matter without acknowledging that only the actions of individuals will bring about such a result he already admitted he doesn’t think it matters, and that he thinks anyone who opposes woke culture is just making “gestures”.

      “Gestures” is his buzz word for insulting and mocking anyone who doesn’t want to support woke culture.

    789. jason says:

      I don’t think Sinema will vote to end the filibuster.

      But I wouldn’t be surprised if she allows the infrastructure boondoggle to pass as “reconciliation”.

    790. NYCmike says:

      “Just a few years ago The Boys Scouts were fighting tooth and nail to keep gay men out of the Scouts.”

      -Tgca,

      If a gay man, who wasn’t affiliated in any way with our troop, looked to volunteer, we would not allow him to volunteer……..same as a straight man who wasn’t affiliated with our troop in any way.

    791. Tgca says:

      800

      Could a local priest serve as a Boy Scout leader?

      What about a male school teacher or doctor?

    792. NYCmike says:

      “Could a local priest serve as a Boy Scout leader?

      What about a male school teacher or doctor?”

      -I guess the priest could, if it made sense. Our troop is affiliated with a particular parish, and there is one priest who is like our spiritual leader, but he has nothing to do with day-to-day issues.

      As for a teacher or doctor, we have had such leaders in the past.

    793. NYCmike says:

      Our troop has all male leaders. Women/moms do participate, but mainly in advisory roles, and in managerial roles (treasurer).

    794. Tgca says:

      802 NYC

      So your troop is at higher risk of having a child molestor in it than a stranger off the street I see because child molestors are almost always male (88%) and serve in the community in ways that put them in close association with children and gain the trust of family and friends, often through mentoring and coaching opportunities.

      They are often married with their own children and nearly 50% of young molested children are molested by their own family members.

      Molestors are often considered leaders beyond reproach in the community they serve and unsuspected.

      Sounds like maybe before lecturing others you should consider lecturing your peer leaders to ensure everyone understands the lurking risks around them.

      Not saying they exist in your troop, just saying it is more probable than some random guy off the street or some gay dude who doesn’t have children.

    795. Tgca says:

      Here’s some some specific stats I easily researched and found online, and seem to be consistent with what I’ve heard and read in the past.

      Based on this, some could argue it may be statistically safer leaving your kid with a gay single dude than a married white man with children.

      Most child molestors are males (88%) and are involved in the community or around children.

      About half of child molestation is by family members:

      49% of victims under age 6.
      42% of victims ages 7-11.
      24% of victims ages 12 – 17.

      The younger the child, the more likely their abuser is a family member. Keep in mind that family members include parents, guardians, step-parents, siblings, step-siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents.

      While some sexual abuse is purely opportunistic, most children are groomed and lured into situations where they are vulnerable to abuse. Common grooming strategies include:

      Befriending parents, particularly single parents, to gain access to their children.

      Offering babysitting services to busy parents or guardians.

      Taking jobs and participating in community events that involve children.

      Becoming a guardian or foster parent.

      Attending sporting events for children.

      Offering to coach children’s sports.

      Volunteering in youth organizations.

      Offering to chaperone overnight trips.

      Loitering in places children frequent – playgrounds, parks, malls, game arcades, sports fields, etc.

      Befriending youngsters on social media (TikTok, Ask.fm, YouTube, Kik, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.) and online gaming platforms.

      While there are many reasons victims don’t tell, the “VIP Factor” is a significant reason why sexual crimes against children have continued for generations. These “Very Important Persons” (VIPs) are well-known local leaders in our schools, athletic and civic organizations, houses of worship, healthcare and business communities. Some are VIPs on the state or national level, in the educational, legal, military, corporate, media, higher education and political worlds. They have power and money, and they have imposed a culture of silence that few dare attempt to confront.

    796. Tgca says:

      In 3, 2, 1, …Bitter to say I’m signaling about him and calling him a child molestor because I stated some facts about child molestors generally being married white dudes with children and he’s a married white dude with children.

      He’ll argue it was very clear from my posting who I was talking about and it’s a disgusting and vile accusation that is just unforgivable and he no longer feels empathy for my childhood experiences and wishes they were worst and he hopes I die all alone and my dog gets eaten by an alligator too.

      I would hope so but since NYC appears to be suffering from reading comprehension skills, I dunno so I thought I’d remind him because people sometimes forget, especially if it’s related to those who deserve it or bring on themselves as we all know gays do.

      Thank you for sharing you Expert knowledge on all things gay.

    799. Bitterlaw says:

      …but telling people you wish them dead or mocking someone over the loss of a child is okay.

      I said that I wanted you to live a long life. I expect you will die alone. I did not wish that you would die alone.

      I already explained that I regret my awful comment to lisab and that I forgot her situation. I regret none of my posts towards you except for asking you to not leave after January 20, 2021.

    800. lisab says:

      i remember, years ago now, this poor kid in the middle school

      used to get pummeled because they thought he was gay

      i am surprised he did not end up in a tower with a rifle.

      it still scars me. he would just try to quietly go to class and the **tough kids** would just punch him out of the blue

      i say **tough kids** but they were tough kids from a radnor-like environment

    801. Bitterlaw says:

      How do you get “massive scale” without individuals taking action.

      You don’t. However, the action or inaction of one person is insignificant and is not a meaningful opposition or endorsement.

      Keep looking for any post where I endorsed woke culture. I know you will endorse the multiple posts where I condemned it – including the ones on this thread.

    802. NYCmike says:

      For some reason, lisab is now mentioning anecdotal stories of kids getting beat up.

    803. Bitterlaw says:

      I highly doubt that you were ever educated OR taught in the top-rated school district in any state, let alone Pennsylvania.

      my dog gets eaten by an alligator too.

      I would never wish harm on your dog. It suffered enough not having any edible scraps from your plate.

    805. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca did not refer to lisab or NYC hanging out with children or describing them as their friends. He only used those loaded words against me.

      If Tgca has such a great life, unlike me, why is he here all day and night?

    806. Tgca says:

      809

      BitterRacist is lying again. That’s another trait of metrosexuals. They lie to try and make a point.

      In 506 he goes on a rant about my dog abandoning me at my death but then clearly is frustrated and has a change of heart and says:

      F it. Just die alone.

      Now he did not use the exact words “I hope an alligator eats your dog too” but clearly from his post, it’s quite OBVIOUS that’s what he meant as well because he knows I live in Florida with my dog and there are alligators all over and so if I die alone the chances of my dog wandering the streets and stopping to drink some water in the hot sun by one of the numerous waterways here means my dog being eaten by an alligator increase substantially.

      Man up and just say what you mean about my dog Bitter because we all know what you meant.

    807. Tgca says:

      815

      LisaB and NYC don’t constantly whine like teens and complain they have no friends and do nothing but stay home and watch woke sports except to hang out with people at their adolescent maturity level.

      That’s the difference BitterRacist!

    808. NYCmike says:

      Also, Tgca bringing up the fact that most victims know their abusers – Agreed, I have heard that is the case.

      That is why the 2-deep rule is strictly enforced, as the abuse RARELY happens when there is a 3rd, or more, person in a group.

      I do not know what happens to each of these scouts (other than my son) when they are in their own home, but when they are under my supervision, strict rules are followed…….again, for the safety of both the child and the adult.

    809. Tgca says:

      815

      Why do I hang here all day like you did for months after being fired for incompetence you ask?

      I pop in and out during the day because I’m retired and everyone is working all day so unless I’m doing errands or meeting up with my good friend who lives close by, I come here to mock your constant drama you RACIST childish bitter pitiful old man with no friends.

      I agree Phil. I am partly responsible for feeding this topic by challenging reading comprehension. Sorry!

      Let’s discuss Mark Foley, former GOP rep from FL who was involved inappropriate behavior with children.

    813. NYCmike says:

      “More importantly, most child molestors are people well-trusted or what some call VIP, very important people that no one would otherwise suspect because of their position in tje community.”

      -Our Troop treats the rules with a lot of respect, for just this reason.

    814. NYCmike says:

      “-Our Troop treats the rules with a lot of respect, for just this reason.”

      -And from the comments made by Bitterlaw, he has the same respect for those rules to protect children that I abide by, and I hope the rest of the posters on here who help with children do as well.

    815. Tgca says:

      I was a bartender while undergrad and used to do mostly fancy banquet occasions like weddings, bar mitzvahs, anniversaries, etc mainly for rich RACIST white people in a Bergen County.

      Once some snotty kid like 12 years old tried to sneak a beer from my portable bar and I caught him. He snapped if you don’t give me a beer, I’ll tell my dad you grabbed me. I told him something like go ahead and I’ll grab you by the throat and stared down the lil privileged white Bergen County elitist RACIST and he was like, only kidding as we walk away in embarrassment. It was probably the 1st time anyone probably evah threatened the lil punk ass white Racist Bish.

      He’s probably now happily married doctor, living in Radnor, PA raising our future metrosexuals and watching woke sports.

    816. lisab says:

      you would be half right

      i have always taught in very poor and/or minority heavy school districts

      until now actually, which is a lower middle class white school system. we do have somalians, but not in my school.

    817. Robbie says:

      I’ve got to be honest, I am so shocked the CDC gave up on the mask mandate you can knock me over with a feather. I thought the Fauch and the gang would push for it to continue as long as possible.

      It’s a good day. Now, it’s time for the TSA to end their mask rule for airports and planes. Pilots aren’t required to wear masks when the flight deck door is closed because there are communication issues, but, hopefully, the TSA will end their rule soon.

    818. Tgca says:

      Ok. Tonight is movie night for me, the dog, and the fish because It’s gonna be a bit stormy here too.

      I was thinking of Aplha fir the dog but then thought maybe the fish might like Finding Nemo. Hmmm…

      I did watch Enemy Mine the other day after Wes jealously posted about my manly breakfast.

      Y’all have now and as we say in the south “bless your heart.”

    819. Wes says:

      Tgca confuses contempt with jealousy and LisaB-style slop with manly food.

    820. NYCmike says:

      “It’s a good day.”

      -Biden is President, gas is up 50%, Middle East peace forged by Trump, Pence, Pompeo etc etc is being blown up bit by bit, WOKEness is on the march…….but no mean tweets! JOY!

    821. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca is the one who described his neighborhood. He must be a racist.

    822. Tgca says:

      829

      I think it’s so cute the way Wes tries to pretend he’s not jealous of my cuisine choices.

      Tonight I ate Palak Paneer, an Indian vegetarian dish consisting of paneer (a type of cottage cheese) in a thick paste made from puréed spinach with a spicy kick to it. Yummee!!!

      Now I know Wes is gonna be sooooo jealous I’ve outdone him for dinner tonight.

      May 13, 2021 at 4:41 pm

      For the love of God, can we please get back to politics??

      Why? You have quit as a voter.

    824. Phil says:

      Hi Corey. Thought you’d be busy humping Liz’s leg.

    825. CG says:

      Unlike your hero, I wouldn’t try to violate a married woman.

    826. Phil says:

      Maybe just give her a big ol French kiss, huh

      You must be so proud of your boy in the WH.

    827. CG says:

      As of today, it would be acceptable to shake her hand or give her a hug. I might enjoy that.

    828. Phil says:

      Of that, we all have no doubt.

      Go for it. The woman could no doubt use a hug about now.

    829. Tgca says:

      What disgusting woke people Harry and Meghan are to go on their pity tour and insult the Queen. They should just move to Radnor to be with the rest of the spoiled selfish wokesters.

      They could live 50 years and never show the loyalty and dedication the Queen has in her life.

      Here Harry says that “a lot of genetic pain and suffering [got] passed on” to him by his father, Prince Charles, …and then he indicated Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip treated Charles poorly as parents.

      https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2021/05/13/woke-harry-laments-genetic-pain-upbringing-brands-first-amendment-bonkers/

    830. Phil says:

      Harry must make the family so proud.

    831. Tgca says:

      Phil and CG, can’t you guys just speak to each other respectfully and get along politely like everyone else here at HHR instead of bringing us all down with this vitriolic posting.

    832. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca is more like a Democrat each day. First he practices the politics of personal destruction by accusing me of being a predator. Then he manufactures baseless allegations of racism against me. Then he tells me to check my white privilege with all the comments about where I was born and live. Don’t forget him putting on his Hispanic and Gay hats to play victim.

      No wonder his dog would leave him if it could. The fish are just happy fish have short lives.

    833. CG says:

      Clearly, he knows how to torture you and has you just where he wants you.

      The question is why do you let him (and others?) Why do you want to keep posting here? They will never ease up on you.

    834. Bitterlaw says:

      Corey’s ability to return and immediately pick up right where he left off being a dick is impressive.

    835. Bitterlaw says:

      I said I would never leave. Unlike Jason, I know the word never has only one meaning.

    836. CG says:

      And yet I am actually nicer to you than anyone that still posts here. I even thought about trying to email you personally but did not do so. It’s sad to see you put yourself through all this. Just my two cents.

    837. Phil says:

      Impressive yes, but entirely predictable.

    838. CG says:

      Impressive and consistent would definitely be an accurate description of my history here since 2004.

    839. Bitterlaw says:

      I know they will never ease up. I know jason’s “fair offer” to stop calling me woke is a lie. If I just agreed with everything he said all day he would say it wasn’t enough. If I typed “I agree with you.” his next post would be “Bitter does not agree with me.”

      Lisab is vicious and vindictive and plays everybody for fools by pretending to agree with them as she retypes their posts. The same vindictive lisab claims I need psychiatric help but never misses a chance to call me unfit and a failure.

      I used to find Tgca entertaining. Now he just wants to insult me and call me a predator.

    840. Bitterlaw says:

      HHR always needed a villain. It’s my turn. I never liked echo chambers. I supported Trump in 2 elections, unlike most. That counts for nothing to the woke hunters.

    841. CG says:

      So, perhaps you see them for what they are, but with every post you make, it comes across how desperately you are seeking their approval. You may not realize it comes off that way, but it does, and they certainly can recognize it themselves.

      This is not the same site it used to be. I truly have no idea why Dave keeps it up. I am fairly certain he does not read any of the comments. If you want to keep posting here, that’s up to you, but it’s probably a really bad idea for yourself. Whether you believe it or not, I am actually trying to help.

    842. CG says:

      You are trying to convince them that you agree with them on all this Trump stuff and are on the same side as them, and they don’t believe you because it comes across as hollow and insincere. I don’t really believe it either. Why do you need them to like you?

    843. Tgca says:

      844

      PityRacistLaw accuses me of being a Dem but he’s the one who is marching in step with Nancy and team as a wokester, and training the next generation of Radnor libs and metrosexuals.

      …stop talking about my dog, as your implications are offensive and disturbing.

      Do I talk about your marriage of convenience because your an embarrassment to your wife and kids?

    844. Bitterlaw says:

      You made your deal with the Dems, Corey. It tainted you forever. On the other hand, I have never voted for a Democrat (except for Trump and a few party switchers in Philadelphia who could not get the Dem nomination) but I am the impure one here. Mr. Never Does Not Mean Never was willing to accept President Hillary Clinton but I am the problem.

    845. CG says:

      I said NeverTrump (and I also said NeverHillary). Certainly kept my word. Only one who shows up here at all to have done so.

      I never said NeverBiden, though I was surprised to find myself voting for him. First Democrat I have ever voted for. I don’t think that constitutes a “deal” and I am sure you know plenty of people, including Republicans, who have voted for at least one Democrat.

      But this is not about me, because basically idgaf, and I ever did in the past, I don’t anymore. You definitely are seeking approval from them you will never get and frankly should not want.

    846. Bitterlaw says:

      Training them to play softball and basketball. Nothing more. You pulled out the Gay victim card. It’s all you have left. Why don’t you give us more statistics about older gay men not being in monogamous relationships and societal norms and gay societal trends to cover up the obvious truth – you move because there is nothing and nobody to hold on to.

      You know nothing of my marriage. You can’t conceive of a relationship lasting more than 30 days let alone 30 years.

    847. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca calls me a racist, tosses around white privilege and plays victim. He should be a Democrat. Might get more dates.

    848. CG says:

      Messing with your mind is more fun for him than anything he might do on a date. And you are consenting to let him do it.

    849. Bitterlaw says:

      This is the last place that any sane person (or me) would come to seek approval. It used to be fun. That ended years ago.

    850. lisab says:

      I need psychiatric help but never misses a chance to call me unfit and a failure.
      ——————–

      because both are true

    851. CG says:

      Move on to something else then. Find something “fun.” You should not feel like you have to punish yourself.

      Just my two cents.

    852. lisab says:

      They will never ease up on you.
      ————————————

      we actually have been very quiet

      not that we don’t still enjoy mocking him

      but there are only so many hours in the day and we are busy

    853. Tgca says:

      Oh puhleez PityLaw.

      You know nothing of my relationships either and you constantly bring it up so I think we can start with your relationships.

      You say your wife is is successful and smart. Then WTF would she want to stay with you?

      My guess, she’s doing it for the kids. Maybe after they’re done with college the she’ll do the right thing and and look out for herself instead of you and dump your ass and find herself a REAL man.

    854. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca made his accusation. Like I said. I used to like him and thought he was entertaining. When he used my volunteering to make vile charges, that changed everything. MD used to talk about lines that should never be crossed. Tgca crossed one. No redemption. Now, if he wants to stop with the references to my players being my friends and my buddies and my practices and games being “hanging out,” I will do what the Irish are best at – being quietly resentful.

    855. CG says:

      The more upset it makes you, the more he is going to do what upsets you. It’s common sense. You are purely his dance partner at this point and he is leading.

    856. Bitterlaw says:

      A crippled vegan is nobody’s catch. You better lock the doors, buy quality dog food with meat in it, and use a short leash.

    857. lisab says:

      You say your wife is is successful and smart. Then WTF would she want to stay with you?
      —————————————–

      the sweaters

    858. Tgca says:

      PityLaw questions other’s personal lives and their relationships.

      That’s amusing.

      Look at your own family dude!

      Seriously?

      People on glass houses should not throw stones.

    859. Bitterlaw says:

      I actually hope Tgclown does have meaningful relationships. No pet should have to be responsible for caring all their owner’s baggage.

    860. Bitterlaw says:

      Carrying.

    861. Tgca says:

      866

      …and drunks…don’t forget that. The Irish are real good at that…I know…I have Irish family.

      …and please don’t quote us on MD. One of the most hateful disturbed racist homophobic people to ever post here that went off on the deep end.

    862. Bitterlaw says:

      Do you miss dancing for creepy old people? Maybe Wes’ girlfriend could get you a shift on the pole.

    863. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t drink at all. Gave it up years ago. Didn’t want to go down the family pathway.

    864. Tgca says:

      CG says Bitter should not punish himself but that’s exactly what he wants folks to think. He’s a pity whore!

      He can never get enough pity and drama.

      It will never end!

      He has deepened into more mental instability over the years but refuses to seek help because pity and sympathy are his addiction.

    865. Tgca says:

      As a 4-year old dancer in the bars it was mainly for the pleasure of local ladies in their 30s and 40s who liked to consume alcohol…you know the kind of woman I’m tawkin about.

    866. lisab says:

      tgca,

      md was a homophobe?

      was that during his downward spiral at the end?

    867. Tgca says:

      877

      I should say bar. It was only one local Latin bar.

      I don’t want to give Newark a bad rap as a place that broke child work laws.

    868. CG says:

      876. If what you think is true (and maybe it is to some extent) why are you taking part in it then? Why are you deliberately being cruel for fun?

      If people are going to continue posting on the same blog, maybe they should just ignore each other completely. Back when I used to post on here all the time, and after Bitterlaw was especially a jerk to me, I went for over a year without acknowledging him or his posts in anyway, and it bothered him very much.

    869. Tgca says:

      I dunno when and where it started but he would say condescending homo things when he did not agree with me. He always looked to pick fights. He was notorious for going off his meds and was almost as dramatic as Bitter.

      Clearly, my call on him and his character proved to be correct early on but it took others awhile to catch on until he left HHR in a fit of rage or whatever his issues were.

      Bitter has taken over his role of the miserable, unhappy, self-putting useful idiot of the left.

    870. CG says:

      The entire basis for this comment section, at least in recent years, is “picking fights.”

      Yes, some people can dish it out better than they can take it. They should keep that in mind.

      So, if someone enjoys fighting with strangers online, it makes sense to do it. If someone dislikes it, they should move on and not look back.

    871. Bitterlaw says:

      Everybody is a racist and homophobe to Tgca when pressed. I’m sure he did face discrimination and bigotry growing up. He likes to tell us that he overcame his struggles to lead a great life. But when pressed on anything, he retreats to his safe place of victim hood.

      I used to take his side against Author’s slurs, wasted time I can’t get back.

      By the way, for all of Tgca’s observations about where I live, how tight is the security in his building? I am sure that not just anybody gets buzzed in. Anybody can walk on my sidewalk. Tgca hides behind a doorman and I am sure there are no Section 8 residents there.

    872. lisab says:

      He was notorious for going off his meds
      —————————-

      ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh

      i totally missed that

      the people i worked with had no choice on taking meds

      now things make much more sense, especially the end

    873. Tgca says:

      CG

      We used to mock and tease each other harshly but it was all meant in good fun and though people got mildly annoyed, it was typical guy teasing to the limits like college guys or brothers.

      Bitter started taking it to new levels by using information people shared over the years to strike out at them when he got pissed, like my childhood or LisaB losing her child so of course, people struck back harder, and now it’s the norm here.

      He also accused of us being glad his niece was dead and other silly comments. Hence, the reason I mock him as acting like a teen girl because he is overly dramatic.

      If Bitter would go back to the old ways it would be fine but he won’t. He can’t help himself because he claims he has decades of rage built up inside him.

      If the answer is to ignore each other’s postings, I’m fine by that but then Bitter would have no one to talk to then on a regular basis.

      I ain’t gonna let him try to run this place like he owns it since I’ve been here just as long as he, as has LisaB or at least close to it so he has no claim to ownership.

    874. Cash Cow TM says:

      I do not think that Canadians and other foreigners should be allowed to be participants on TV quiz programs in America like Jeopardy!, and Wheel of Fortune.

      Especially Wheel of Fortune.
      After all it is “America’s Favorite” Quiz game.

    875. Bitterlaw says:

      So, if someone enjoys fighting with strangers online, it makes sense to do it. If someone dislikes it, they should move on and not look back.

      When are you going to stop looking back, Corey?

    876. CG says:

      You all have “fought” unfairly with each other.

      Someone should choose to be the bigger person and walk away. This is only the Internet.

    877. Bitterlaw says:

      He also accused of us being glad his niece was dead and other silly comments

      Find that post or leave.

    878. CG says:

      I only get a fix to post here like once every 2 months lately. I won’t be back again for a while. Perhaps ever.

      I’m actually trying to be a peacemaker here. Probably very futile.

    879. Tgca says:

      884. LisaB

      I meant the “meds” part rhetorically. I have no idea if he had substance needs or issues, but he was acting crazy a few times and left with histrionic rants like he was punishing us all by leaving. Good riddance to bad rubbish, as the great Bette Davis once said.

      MD tried to out people too I understand which just shows you how vindictive and disturbed he was. He could not take needling and could dish it out but not take it.

      Bitter tries to out himself by posting his number too but I ignore it and refuse to call him or he’ll have me on the phone all night whining.

    880. lisab says:

      so of course, people struck back harder, and now it’s the norm here.
      ————————–

      actually, i am not holding grudges or anything

      i just think he is unfit for a national leadership role

      the mocking is just a bonus

    881. Bitterlaw says:

      Hence, the reason I mock him as acting like a teen girl because he is overly dramatic.

      No. You accused me of seeing my players as my friends and buddies and “hanging out with them” All of those things would be inappropriate and predatory behavior. You new that and said it anyway. That is what started this.

    882. CG says:

      We all should know, that despite whatever positive qualities he does have as a person and as a member of society, Bitterlaw is most certainly not running for Congress in 2022. Not going to happen. Never was going to happen.

      He has used that as a way to get people to talk about him, perhaps negatively.

    883. Bitterlaw says:

      the mocking is just a bonus

      And really only turned vicious from you in the past year.

    884. Tgca says:

      890 CG

      Yes, probably futile. We’re all older and more stubborn now and just tired of all the BS. We’re divided like the rest of the US.

      Bitter will NEVAH forgive you for voting for Biden as he will see you a traitor forever as that’s the way his little mind works but he spends his time mentoring the next generation of liberals and metrosexuals. Go figure!

    885. Bitterlaw says:

      I said I planned to run on Election Night 2020.

      Don’t worry, Corey. If I run, I will give you full access so you can write up my race on the 50 state elections forecast you post for…somebody to read.

    886. Tgca says:

      894

      He has used that as a way to get people to talk about him, perhaps negatively.

      My point earlier. Attention whore!

      He’s our Meghan Markle!

      What’s the old Hollywood saying like…it doesn’t matter what they say as long as they keep talking about you. Once they stop talking about you, it’s over.

    887. CG says:

      He only attacks me to try to curry favor with the others who are mean to him. He’ll deny it here of course.

      “Look what I said to Corey the night! You all loved me for that, right!.”

      I don’t think he truly cares that I voted for Biden and after 17 years, I think he knows I am a conservative and have the same beliefs I always did. Plus I actually know the meaning of the word “never.”

    888. CG says:

      You aren’t going to run. If so, you would have already taken steps. There is now an announced Republican candidate in that race besides the Philly Dick Proud Boy.

    889. lisab says:

      He’s our Meghan Markle!
      —————————-

      that’s a keeper!

    890. Bitterlaw says:

      Bitter will NEVAH forgive you for voting for Biden as he will see you a traitor forever as that’s the way his little mind works but he spends his time mentoring the next generation of liberals and metrosexuals. Go figure!

      Tgclown must think the political future of the nation depends on softball and basketball. Of course, he thinks I am a traitor and a member of BLM for drinking soda so his little mind is certainly not a good judge of facts or character.

    891. lisab says:

      Bitterlaw is most certainly not running for Congress in 2022. Not going to happen. Never was going to happen.
      ———————–

      you forget … its the gop

      Maybe Tgca can tell us more about his gay rags to riches story. He is our Horatio Alger story. Or would it be Jorge Alger?

    893. lisab says:

      You aren’t going to run. If so, you would have already taken steps.
      ———————————–

      corey,

      this will probably shock you

      but i would vote for you over bitterlaw

      you haven’t said you were suicidal 100 times

    894. CG says:

      Had Bitterlaw gotten his wish for me and the Cubs lost the 2016 World Series…..

    895. Bitterlaw says:

      you haven’t said you were suicidal 100 times

      There’s the caring lisab you all know and worship. Mocking the one she claims needs help.

    896. lisab says:

      actually that was not mocking

    897. Tgca says:

      904

      Rags to riches.

      Bitter gives me more credit than I deserve.

      Bitter is just jealous because of he had my upbringing then he could whine and project drama even more than he does now since his current material is getting old.

    898. Bitterlaw says:

      Bitter is just jealous because of he had my upbringing then he could whine and project drama even more than he does now since his current material is getting old.

      I could never outdo your drama. Put down the cane and pat yourself on the back, bish.

      Here is the candidate Corey mentioned. He only declared last week. Seems solid. Of course, he works for Comcast so jason will say he must be woke. He also talked about bringing people together so he must be a squish to HHR.

    900. Bitterlaw says:

      but i would vote for you over bitterlaw

      The rejection by a Jill Stein supporting socialist teachers’ union rep actually bolsters my conservative credentials. Sorry, Corey.

    901. Tgca says:

      The following is a true dramatization of actual events that took place recently between a husband and wife in the woke city of Radnor, PA.

      Bitter:
      Honey, I have something to ask you.

      Mrs. Bitter:
      Ok. What is it dear?

      Bitter:
      I want you to be honest with me no matter what.

      Mrs Bitter:
      Of course. What is it dear?

      Bitter:
      You promise? I really want to hear the truth.

      Mrs. Bitter:
      Yes! I promise. What is it?

      Bitter:
      Ok. Here goes. Do you think I’m overly dramatic? Some of my grown-up friends at HHR say I’m a Drama Queen.

      Mrs. Bitter:
      Oh gosh dear! Look at the time. I forgot I have to get to the office right away.

      Bitter:
      But is Saturday. Since when do you work Saturdays?

    902. NYCmike says:

      “I don’t think he truly cares that I voted for Biden and after 17 years, I think he knows I am a conservative and have the same beliefs I always did. Plus I actually know the meaning of the word “never.””

      -Yup, “CG” is a conservative……..yet hasn’t mentioned 1 policy issue being implemented by the Biden-Harris administration which he is against.

      Also, “CG” the “conservative” hasn’t come back to show how Liz Cheney will forge a winning coalition of voters with the Republican Party and other voters, other than yelling “I don’t like the Orange Guy!” over and over.

    903. Bitterlaw says:

      I work more than she does. I told you. I am the rarest of creatures – an unsuccessful workaholic.

    904. NYCmike says:

      Let’s see – who has been more like Trump:

      DeSantis or Cheney? Mike Pompeo or Cheney? Pence or Cheney?

      Who has a better chance to win in 2024?

      Or is “CG” already ALL-IN for Nikki Haley?

    905. NYCmike says:

      “But is Saturday. Since when do you work Saturdays?”

      -Especially since she is Jewish!

    906. CG says:

      Not true of course. I disagree with many of Biden’s policies and even stated a whole bunch last time I was on here, just as I disagreed with many of Trump’s policies. Of course, NYC supported each and every one of Trump’s policies, but now opposes the same policies on issues where Biden is in line with Trump.

      As for the future of the Republican Party, it should be quite clear after 2018 and 2020 that “the orange man” is not very liked in America and has been a horrible anchor for the Republican Party. Liz Cheney is absolutely correct that he should be broken away with for good in order for Republicans to be able to have a credible message to oppose Democrats on conservative principles.

      Donald Trump was certainly not a conservative and definitely never had the best interests of the Republican Party at heart. He failed as the “leader” of the party and the best way to win is without his baggage.

    907. Bitterlaw says:

      The following conversation took place in a park outside an exclusive Miami high rise.

      Tgca: After your walk, we can get impossible burgers with glutein-free paper instead of hamburger buns.

      Dog: woof (WTF)

      Tgca: Then we can watch Wuthering Heights with Laurence Olivier.

      Dog: woof (I know I saw an alligator near that pond…it will either eat him or me but at least I will be at peace)

    908. NYCmike says:

      “Of course, NYC supported each and every one of Trump’s policies, but now opposes the same policies on issues where Biden is in line with Trump.”

      -Which ones are those?

    909. CG says:

      You agreed with Trump blindly on every issue.

      But let’s just take Afghanistan for instance and the withdrawal plan.

      I believe Trump was wrong and Biden is wrong.

      Will you somehow find a way to say Trump was right and Biden is wrong?

    910. CG says:

      Crazy expensive infrastructure plans…

      Trump was wrong and Biden was wrong.

      Do you agree or are they both right?

    911. CG says:

      Saying that the 1994 Crime Bill (which Republicans at the time believed did not go far enough) was “racist” and overly harsh..

      Trump was wrong for saying that and Biden, for political reasons, took the same position, and he was wrong too.

      Are they both right? Are they both wrong? Or is only Trump right, as usual?

    912. CG says:

      Doing all sorts of things via Executive Order, without the approval of Congress.

      Trump did them too much and was wrong. Biden does them too much as is wrong.

      Do you agree or is only Biden wrong and as usual, it’s ok Trump did it because he was doing business in NYC?

    913. NYCmike says:

      We have been in Afghanistan since 2001. I supported Bush in the beginning, and supported him when he then pushed the focus to Iraq.

      Unfortunately, the vision laid out back then, to make Iraq like a Japan/Germany, where we would make it into a democratic country and also a base of American power to transform the Middle East into something drastically different, did not work out, and I don’t see the American people supporting that mission any longer…..either there or in Afghanistan.

      If there is a coherent, long-term strategy for the United States in Afghanistan, I would love to hear it. So far, I have not seen it.

      Do you think the next Republican nominee will run on an extended American presence in that sheothole? I think that would be a losing issue.

    914. CG says:

      So, you think Biden is right on Afghanistan. Own it. You support a major Biden policy.

    915. NYCmike says:

      “You agreed with Trump blindly on every issue.”

      -This is complete horsesh*t.

      BUT, when the opposition party’s ideas are worse, I’ll back the person in office on a single issue.

    916. lisab says:

      does biden have a policy on afghanistan?

    917. NYCmike says:

      “So, you think Biden is right on Afghanistan. Own it. You support a major Biden policy.”

      -If no other alternatives are being presented, and there is no long-term plan, then I support American troops leaving that country. It kind of reminds me when Reagan pulled the troops out of Lebanon.

      If that is supporting my President, I guess you can call it that. That doesn’t mean I will vote for the guy.

    918. CG says:

      I supported some Trump Administration policies but that sure as hell did not mean I would vote for him.

      And needless to say, I very much hope there is a better option than Biden or Harris in 2024. Obviously for me, that will not be Trump.

    919. CG says:

      If it such horse.. name one Trump policy you opposed. Name one Trump action or statement that you could not defend…

    920. NYCmike says:

      “Saying that the 1994 Crime Bill (which Republicans at the time believed did not go far enough) was “racist” and overly harsh..”

      -Again, words. What were Trump’s actions?

      Trump did not seek to release serious criminals. Trump did not support the no-bail laws put in place recently in several BLUE states.

      His prison reform centered on non-violent crimes, and in a federal system, I would rather the individual states deal with those issues. I like to see the 50 separate “experiments”, and then try to push each state in the direction of the method that seems to be working best……similar to Rudy’s compstat program being adopted in other large cities across the nation.

      That is the conservative position.

    921. NYCmike says:

      “If it such horse.. name one Trump policy you opposed.”

      -His spending was ridiculous. I would have liked him to veto more of the spending sent to him from Congress in 2017-18………hmmmmm, who was in charge those years?

    922. CG says:

      Trump did release criminals and made a big deal about it. Kim Kardashian was his advisor on that. Do you not remember?

      But you dodged the question. This business about, “oh just words. He lies all the time. That’s what makes him great” does not hold up.

      If you think Trump was right that the 1994 Crime Bill was racist, you agree now with Biden apparently, and also with BLM. Who knew you were so woke?

    923. CG says:

      When he was President, you defended him on every spending action. There was not a single policy or statement you would ever criticize. Trump wanted to spend more money than the Democrat Congress.

      But now, that he is no longer President, you may be taking baby steps to distance yourself from him. i will try to see that as a positive.

    924. NYCmike says:

      20 years in Afghanistan – you don’t think there needs to be a new approach?

      Do conservative/Republican voters back continuous wars? Independents?

      Make the case. What is your reasoning for staying there?

      Iraq would be more sensible.

      And the Benjamin Accords were a huge breakthrough, yet you are happy to see them blown up by Biden.

    925. CG says:

      As long as Jihadists wish to kill us, the same approach should hold. Stop, kill, or capture them.

      They haven’t changed their minds about us.

    926. CG says:

      Leaving Afghanistan will allow terrorists to regroup and pose a bigger threat to us.

      We will likely have to go back, but what will happen first to cause that? Hopefully nothing within the U.S.

      This “endless war” talking point is left-wing Daily Kos capitulation to the hilt.

      How do you end a war if the enemy will not stop? You “end” it by surrendering. But it’s not going to be over to them. So, we will reap what we sow.

    927. NYCmike says:

      “If you think Trump was right that the 1994 Crime Bill was racist, you agree now with Biden apparently, and also with BLM. Who knew you were so woke?”

      -Oh Lord.

      Get real. There were not changes to that law in regard to those who commit violent crime.

      If you think making small changes to mandatory sentences for non-violent crime ON A FEDERAL LEVEL is worthy of a YUGE fight, go with it. I think it is an electoral loser in 2022 and 2024.

    928. lisab says:

      If it such horse.. name one Trump policy you opposed. Name one Trump action or statement that you could not defend…
      ————————————–

      speaking for me … i pretty much did not care at all about anything he said that riled people up. MOSTLY i thought it was a good thing. it was of course bad politically that some dems HAAAAAAATED him … but on the whole i thought his brash tactics were a good thing.

      (otoh i think don jr. is painful to listen to)

      the one time trump said something that i did not like was his comment about mccain. it was not good because you salute the uniform not the man. it is ok to not like mccain, FOR MANY REASONS, but his service was honorable.

      as far as policies go … not really that familiar with them, but nothing jumps out at me.

      the problem there is that most things were not policies … for example, his work with turkey and pakistan was not great … some would say piss poor, but that is not policy so much as him not kissing their butts and ALSO not being polite

    929. NYCmike says:

      “How do you end a war if the enemy will not stop? You “end” it by surrendering. But it’s not going to be over to them. So, we will reap what we sow.”

      -Too bad Bush/Cheney allowed lawyers to set the rules of engagement.

    930. lisab says:

      nyc mentioned spending way too much

      if that is a policy

      then i agree.

    931. CG says:

      Trump said the the 1994 Crime Bill was designed to lock up innocent black people.

      Either you are agree with him on the substance or cheer him on for lying and adopting the most radical of BLM talking points and myths.

    932. CG says:

      Too bad we had 12 years of Obama/Trump. Afghanistan would likely be far more secure now.

    933. NYCmike says:

      “As long as Jihadists wish to kill us, the same approach should hold. Stop, kill, or capture them.

      They haven’t changed their minds about us.”

      -Agreed. Which is why I thought the approach outlined above and back in the early 2000’s, where Iraq would be the nation where we build new democratic institutions, like we did in Germany and Japan, while also allowing us to have a military base to go after those who want to kill us.

      Afghanistan is not the place to do that.

      Look at history for some guide.

    934. lisab says:

      -Too bad Bush/Cheney allowed lawyers to set the rules of engagement.
      —————————-

      we could have won if they went in with the mentality of “this is a big problem, it will take 20 years”

      we could have a whole bunch of 20 year old afghans right now as a trained army of democrats — in the sense of democracy not party affiliation

      but they just kept trying to put a bandaid on a bleeding artery

    935. NYCmike says:

      Still no comment on the Benjamin Accords…….

    936. lisab says:

      “Trump said the the 1994 Crime Bill was designed to lock up innocent black people.”

      it was … but not due to their skin color per se, it is just where the crime was taking place

      i thought it was a good thing for someone to have the guts to say it

    937. NYCmike says:

      In my lifetime, The best results, and the most peace, in the Middle East, was the last 4 years with Trump as President.

      Without a doubt.

    938. CG says:

      Democrats and/or Trump have had at least a veto power over everything including foreign policy in places like Afghanistan since the 2006 election.

      GWB had five years. Iraq became a bigger issue starting in 2003. Of course, that is controversial, but we all know the reasons why we went into Iraq. Afghanistan was in a far better place when GWB left office than it is now.

    939. NYCmike says:

      2017-2020

      compare to any other 4 year interval from 1970 to then…..when were there more tangible results?

    940. lisab says:

      we all know the reasons why we went into Iraq
      ———————-

      cheap oil and …?

    941. NYCmike says:

      “Afghanistan was in a far better place when GWB left office than it is now.”

      -I didn’t argue otherwise.

      It still should not be a long-term spot for the US military.

      The terrain is simply not suitable, as shown countless times throughout history.

    942. CG says:

      The Benjamin Accords? I don’t really even know what that is supposed to refer to specifically.

      Trump’s Administration had Israel sign some agreements that were good and all but hardly as earth shattering as you wish to make them out. The Camp David Accords happened under Carter and were a bigger deal. Did that make Carter better than Reagan?

      Clearly, the Palestinians did not get the message that Trump solved the Middle East. Obviously, that never happened, but I salute whatever minimal accomplishments were done with other countries.

      I don’t know how Biden is blowing up the accords. It has no relevance. Biden has expressed his support for Israel this week in a way that Obama would have never done publicly.

      Now, if only Biden and his people would stop being ridiculously wrong about Iran and the role they play in all of this…

    943. NYCmike says:

      Still no mention of the Benjamin Accords by “CG”……. he has no issue with them being blown up by Biden.

    944. lisab says:

      not that i liked sadam but …

      he must have been thinking

      what the heck did i do?

      the 9/11 attackers were mostly saudi, and the afghans were protecting bin laden

      how did iraq become the target?

    945. NYCmike says:

      “Clearly, the Palestinians did not get the message that Trump solved the Middle East.”

      -Clearly, the Palestinians see that there is a new President, and have acted accordingly.

      Your choice of President had consequences that come along with it.

      Or are you actually of the belief that Biden’s policies in that region are the same as Trump’s?

    946. CG says:

      It was a clear fact that all parties involved, including the Democrats, and likely Saddam himself, believed he had WMD. He had them previously and had used them before. He was definitely trying to develop them.

      There were other reasons of course as well to depose Saddam beyond WMD, which should have been stressed more, such as his funding of homicide bombers and terrorism within Israel.

    947. lisab says:

      trump did not solve the middle east but he did a few key things

      he increased the usa energy output, driving down prices

      he gave lots of weapons to our allies there

      and he kicked russian butt in syria

      they ivans still are afraid of our planes since then

    948. CG says:

      There is nothing happening currently between Israel and Hamas within Israel that has anything to do with Biden, Trump, or the U.S.

      The U.S., beyond both radical fringes, stands with Israel.

    949. NYCmike says:

      ““Clearly, the Palestinians did not get the message that Trump solved the Middle East.””

      -“CG”‘s use of the word “solved” shows he is an immature waif who, despite some supposed serious health issue, voted against Trump due to personal animus, not overall policy issues.

      Conservative….yeah right.

    950. lisab says:

      He was definitely trying to develop them.
      ———————

      he really wasn’t

      unless he thought he was and his underlings just lied to him, but that would mean he never checked, which is unlikely

      he in the PAST certainly had

      and

      many thought he did have them

      but powell was pretty sure it was crap

    951. NYCmike says:

      “The U.S., beyond both radical fringes, stands with Israel.”

      -Horsesh*t.

      Biden’s policy in the Middle East is drastically different than Trump, and the actions happening now are a direct result.

    952. lisab says:

      some people think he knew he did not have any wmd

      but

      he wanted to appear to be a big thug, which worked until george w decided to take him out

    953. lisab says:

      remains to be seen

    954. NYCmike says:

      Border policy – Trump’s fault, or was there a change?

      Gas pipelines – Trump’s fault, or was there a change in policy (Keystone, Michigan pipelines with Whitmer) which made this hack all the more effective?

    955. NYCmike says:

      Biden wants to work with Iran……that is YUGE CHANGE!

      The whole policy of the Trump admin was thrown out the window by these people…….and there is no “remains to be seen” about it.

      “CG” voted FOR a renewal of the Iran Deal.

    956. CG says:

      -Why?

      I like to question my own beliefs, and to make sure I am basing those beliefs on actual real-life events, as opposed to theoretical ideas and/or personal animus.

      “CG” shows how easily he was swayed by the intense media barrage that Trump battled on a daily basis……it is quite pathetic how such a “conservative” voted for the fool in the Oval Office, but also quite informative.

    962. Tgca says:

      What a freakin’ idiot Jill Biden is. This is just sheer stupidity and pandering.

      First Lady Jill Biden said she felt “naked” without her mask after the Centers for Disease Control lifted mask mandates for vaccinated Americans.

    964. NYCmike says:

      Youngkin-Sears for Virginia 2021?

      Was this mentioned anywhere?

      I may have missed the weekend update if any.

      “CG” didn’t mention it at all…..he will probably support McAuliffe.

    965. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #977 & 975- NYC

      Add to your list: CG will quietly support the Palestinians by claiming its all Trump’s, I mean, Netanyahu’ fault!
      In all his posturing and excuse making on HHR last night, CG did not mention the $250 million that Biden sent to the Palestinians after The Donald starved them of such funding for years.
      CG is a self-loathing Jew, but a first class rationalizer!

    966. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca – Do you want to take the weekend off from our attempts to be as vicious to each other as possible? I think we did a good job at it this week.

    967. jason says:

      I like to question my own beliefs,”

      Yep, NYC has gone woke too.

      It’s really a disease.

    968. jason says:

      CG is a self-loathing Jew, but a first class rationalizer!”

      The Biden Troll would have been here during WWII saying that concentration camps protected Jews from air raids.

    969. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      This is simply the best article written about where American Jews are today with respect to its allegiances with the Democrat Party and intersectionalism. It is written as both satire and condemnation.
      It is timely after CG’s nonsense last night on this thread. This article describes CG perfectly.

      If you are a Jewish American or a regular Democrat, and voted Biden, read this

    970. jason says:

      Bitter wants a truce?

      Sorry, no free lunch.

      I have proposed a fair and equitable resolution. Anybody who does not support woke culture should have ZERO problem in agreeing to it.

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

    971. jason says:

      Brett Baier evidently tore Liz Cheney a new one.

      “You, and your colleagues….were elected to block the Biden agenda which Republicans believe is too far left…Aren’t they correct to claim you are focus on the election & President trump was somehow not going to get them to that goal?”

      You’re saying you are dedicating your life to opposing him…Why should Wyoming say reelect you when you’re spending so much energy opposing him so little opposing Biden?”

      Liz Cheney is just another media whore and like CG the Biden Troll, just a spokesperson for the Biden Administration and the far left agenda that comes with it.

      Human scum. If she had a shred of decency or self respect she would switch parties.

      But then she wouldn’t get on any shows, she would be just one more Biden sycophant, the MSM would dump her in a nanosecond.

    972. Bitterlaw says:

      This is between me and Tgca. GFY

    973. Bitterlaw says:

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

      This is why Jason’s offer is meaningless. At least 3 times on this thread alone I said that woke culture is destructive and may be a greater threat than the proposed voting law changes. I also agreed with the parents in Texas who tossed out the woke school board and yesterday agreed with lawyer mom fighting woke culture in her children’s school. It will never be enough for jason and I know the meaning of never.

    974. Bitterlaw says:

      I like to question my own beliefs,”

      Yep, NYC has gone woke too.

      Thinking is bad according to jason. Maybe he can bring back the Know Nothing Party.

    975. Bitterlaw says:

      Bad news, mf-ers. I just met with my endocrinologist. My cholesterol level is “excellent” and my kidneys are functioning well. You will have me around for years.

      That is a start. But read the whole offer. Stop trivializing woke culture by pretending it is about drinking coke and stop attacking and mocking those that oppose woke culture by saying they are engaging in “gestures”.

      Should not be that hard.

    977. jason says:

      There is no justice.

      Bitter, who has nothing to live for, will live a long life.

      jason, who has a lot to live for, will probably drop dead soon.

    978. jason says:

      I like to question my own beliefs,”

      Yep, NYC has gone woke too.

      Thinking is bad according to jason.”

      Bitter never misses a chance to defend wokiness.

      “Question own beliefs”.. geezus. Next, here at HHR, we will be “trying to find ourselves”.

      Or maybe “explore our inner selves”?

      Maybe I will organize one of those “retreats” for Bitter and NYC so they can “understand themselves better”.

    979. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC was talking about political issues with CG. Jason thinks all policy debates are now about woke culture. Inflation is about woke culture? Israel v. Hamas terrorists is about woke culture? Gas prices? I love this place.

    980. jason says:

      I found the perfect place for Bitter and NYC to rediscover themselves.

      “Amethyst Retreat Center is an inspiring environment dedicated to discovering innovative and meaningful ways of living, learning and healing. More than a beautiful, peaceful haven, we are a center for an evolving culture of wellness through connection with Nature, with each other and with our own inner wisdom. We have no religious or political affiliation; rather, we are part of humanity’s awakening to a culture of respect and inclusiveness for all love-based religions, traditions, cultures and ways of being.

      Being the change we want to see, discovering our true Nature together”

    981. jason says:

      “Question own beliefs” is woke BS.

      Enjoy the retreat.

    983. jason says:

      Anybody in their 50’s still searching for their beliefs is certainly a prime target for the woke culture.

      Now I understand why Bitter has so much trouble taking a stand and so worried about what others think and so intent on “looking at it from all angles” to make “thoughtful decisions”.

    984. jason says:

      If you oppose woke culture “you know nothing”.

      I rest my case.

      If you oppose thinking, you embrace ignorance. It is actually the woke people who reject thinking in favor of easy answers to complex issues.

      It would be so easy to be jason’s lawyer.

      “”What do you recommend?”

      “Nothing. That involves thinking. Here’s my bill.”

    986. Bitterlaw says:

      M

    987. Bitterlaw says:

      If I cared about what people think and refused to take a stand I would not still post here.

      Or I could take the lisab approach and just retype everybody’s posts while laughing at them.

    988. Bitterlaw says:

      Where did jason go? I know he is not off thinking.

    989. jason says:

      I don’t oppose thinking.

      I oppose woke thinking.

    990. jason says:

      Have you registered for the retreat yet?

      You might get a discount if you go with NYC.

      You are going to feel right at home, and there will be plenty of time for deep thinking.

      “Professionals from a variety of wellness backgrounds – holistic dietitians, massage therapists, herbalist, musicians, yogis, reiki masters, artists, and chefs come together and invite you on this journey to meet a more peaceful, clear, and rejuvenated version of yourself, joyfully and natural”

    991. jason says:

      “in favor of easy answers to complex issues”

      This is the same guy who trivializes the whole woke culture mem and makes it about whether he can drink Coke or not.

      Strong contender for astounding hypocrisy of the year.

    992. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason thinks discussing the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan means NYC is woke.

      There will never be anything peaceful or rejuvenated about me. You can send me the registration fee if you want. Tuition is due in August.

    993. Gordon Allen says:

      Consumer Confidence way down 82.6 because of inflation. This isn’t going to end well.

    994. Bitterlaw says:

      Hopefully, it ends well for DeSantis in 2024.

    995. Bitterlaw says:

      Uh oh. If Tgca doesn’t come back I am the prime suspect.

    996. Meldrim says:

      #595, “I am not saying votes in CA and NY don’t count. But in a tight EC vote, they are essentially “wasted”.”

      I agree, Jason, the Delbov Curve was a few years before its time, but the 2016 and 2020 elections proved that there certainly was a lot of truth to it.

    997. NYCmike says:

      ““Question own beliefs” is woke BS.”

      🙂

      I guess the word “science” has a different meaning in Quechuan.

    998. jason says:

      I guess so.

      “Question own beliefs” is not “science” and it is woke BS in Quechuan too.

    999. NYCmike says:

      “Anybody in their 50’s still searching for their beliefs is certainly a prime target for the woke culture.”

      -My word QUESTIONING and jason’s word SEARCHING show that there may be a reading comprehension issue, on jason’s part.

    1000. jason says:

      So Bitter believes you need to be woke to be a deep thinker like him.

    1001. NYCmike says:

      Science is the non-questioning of knowledge.

      Got it!

    1002. Tgca says:

      979 Bitter

      Tgca – Do you want to take the weekend off from our attempts to be as vicious to each other as possible? I think we did a good job at it this week.

      Sure! Why not.

      After all, its my birthday weekend so that’s the best present a guy could hope for…I’m touched.

      *tear rolls down eye*

    1003. jason says:

      You can send me the registration fee if you want. Tuition is due in August.”

      Dang, HHR is a tough place.

      Not only do I have to read all of Bitter’s woke posts, I have to fund a wokey retreat so he can come back and write another 1000 woke posts.

      I will look at it from all angles so I can make a thoughtful decision on not sending you the tuition.

    1004. jason says:

      Science is the non-questioning of knowledge”

      You know, on further hmmm, thought, maybe we should make an exception for NYC.

      I can see where questioning his beliefs might be a good idea in his case.

    1005. NYCmike says:

      If doing things in a different manner mean you are woke, as Trump clearly QUESTIONED the previous beliefs about how to deal with the Middle East, I guess jason agrees with “CG” that the Benjamin Accords are a nothing-burger, and according to jason’s definitions, they are also WOKE.

    1006. jason says:

      Tgca – Do you want to take the weekend off from our attempts to be as vicious to each other as possible? I think we did a good job at it this week.

      Sure! Why not.”

      Geezus, everyone is woke, it is contagious.

      There is still time, tell him to GFH.

    1007. NYCmike says:

      I could easily say “I will NEVER go woke!” and then simply say that NEVER was only for May 2021…….like jason did for 2016…… 🙂

      Bitterlaw, that is how it works, isn’t it?

    1008. jason says:

      as Trump clearly QUESTIONED the previous beliefs about how to deal with the Middle East,”

      Nah, that dog won’t hunt.

      I never said anything about “THE” beliefs on anything, I was commenting on you questioning “YOUR” (own) beliefs.

      And this is not about changing opinions on issues, I interpret “beliefs” as core values and principles.

      And in any case, I doubt Trump was questioning his own beliefs. He certainly didn’t question his own beliefs of protectionism and isolationism and stupid tariffs and trade wars, did he?

    1009. jason says:

      I think its ok if NYC changes his belief that everything possible should be done for Chuck Schumer to continue to be majority leader.

      No problem. Not woke at all.

    1010. NYCmike says:

      🙂

      jason will need a YUGE lunch to compensate for all his digging today!

    1011. Tgca says:

      I just watched “To Hell and Back” an autobiographical movie of Audie Murphy.

      What an incredible story this kid had.

      Grew up dirt poor in Texas, the 7th of 12 kids.
      Father deserted family when he was like 10.
      He quit grade school to work full time in farming to support his younger siblings since elder ones had moved along.
      Mother past when he was 16 and his younger siblings were put in local religious orphanage and he worked to still support them.
      He forged papers and joined Army at 17 after being turned down by other services for being underweight.
      In his 3 years in combat he became most decorated combat veteran receiving every medal including Congressional Medal of Honor, accomplishing these battle recognitions before he was 20.
      He still supported his siblings while in the Army.
      He single-handedly manned a tank for an hour and gunned down a German advancing platoon killing or wounding over 50 men to protect his men in the Forrest trees behind him who were unable to assist him.
      He was wounded in that action and discharged in 1945 around his 20th birthday.
      Thereafter, he served in the TX National Guard and Army Reserves through the 50s and 60s.
      After the army he became a hero and Hollywood actor
      He suffered PTSD too but was functional to work and raise a family and still took care of his other siblings after becoming famous and buying his sister a home to live in.
      He died at 46 in 1971 in a small private plane crash.
      He is buried in Arlington Cemetery and his grave is the 2nd most visited after JFK.

      What an amazing good guy he was to take on role as father of the house at 12 and save so many men while losing many friends in combat too and to become the most decorated combat veteran by 19 after being turned down for being short and underweight as a 16 year-old.

      This is what makes America great and too bad the youth of today do not see how much the festers generation sacrificed for their freedoms.

    1012. Bitterlaw says:

      So Bitter believes you need to be woke to be a deep thinker like him.

      I am not woke. I think. Both can be true.

    1013. Tgca says:

      1026

      Damn auto correct.

      Mother passed not past

      Greatest generation not festers generation

    1014. Bitterlaw says:

      I will look at it from all angles so I can make a thoughtful decision on not sending you the tuition.

      College tuition is not cheap. My practical daughter chose the state school over the private school where my dad and I went.

    1015. NYCmike says:

      “Greatest generation not festers generation”

      -No, I think Uncle Fester was part of that generation, so it fits!

    1016. jason says:

      jason will need a YUGE lunch to compensate for all his digging today!”

      Lunch is long done and gone but I will take the advice for dinner.

      Big pot of pork meatballs should be ready in another hour or so.

    1017. NYCmike says:

      “pork meatballs”

      Amateur.

      Proper meatballs are made with veal, pork and lamb.

      Anything else is just a ball of meat.

    1018. jason says:

      Audie Murphy was a pretty good actor.

    1019. NYCmike says:

      Thinking about moving to Ohio to get vaccinated and win $1 million……

    1020. NYCmike says:

      “Audie Murphy was a pretty good actor.”

      -jason is a bigger A-Hole.

    1021. jason says:

      These are 50% pork, 25% lamb and 25% beef.

      I would put veal and bison in too, but alas, don’t have any.

      Don’t tell Lupita, but llama meat makes great meatballs too.

    1022. NYCmike says:

      Not bad on the meatballs. My Grandmother would wrinkle her nose a bit, but probably work with it.

    1023. jason says:

      “Audie Murphy was a pretty good actor.”

      -jason is a bigger A-Hole.”

      Dang, tough to translate that.

      You do know he made like 40 movies right?

      -Another story “CG” will ignore……hopefully, for the nations sake, there is nothing there!

    1025. jason says:

      I make them with venison too. But you need a fatty meat with it or they are too dry.

    1026. Bitterlaw says:

      And this is not about changing opinions on issues, I interpret “beliefs” as core values and principles.

      English Language calls 911 to report abuse.

    1027. Bitterlaw says:

      Happy Birthday to Tgca. GFY

    1028. jason says:

      English Language calls 911 to report abuse”

      Bitter supports the bastardization of the English language including “new definitions” to justify wokiness.

    1029. Bitterlaw says:

      Bitter supports the bastardization of the English language including “new definitions” to justify wokiness.

      Jason accuses people of being woke but is unable to produce any posts supporting the allegation. Maybe jason is relying upon “penumbras” like Justice Brennan used to do.

    1030. jason says:

      I have provided dozens of examples.

      You are either to woke to admit it or too dishonest.

      Take your pick.

      Just make sure to keep your NY voter registration so you can vote for Schumer again next year.

    1032. jason says:

      Still offering Bitter a friendly, fair and equitable resolution to his woke problem.

      “When you start taking a stand against woke culture and recognizing how detrimental it is and stop mocking those that oppose it I will say you are not woke.”

      Anyone who isn’t woke should be able to agree to that is a nanosecond. Nothing controversial about it:

      1) Take a stand against woke culture.

      Why would that be a problem

      2) Recognize the threat it poses to our lonstanding history and culture, and to the education of our children.

      Should be a slam dunk if you are not woke.

      3) Stop insulting and mocking those who oppose woke culture. Stop trivializing it and pretending it is about drinking Coke. Stop saying opposing woke culture is “gestures”. Stop saying loss of viewership, sales and revenues don’t matter.

      Surely you can find other things to insult people that doesn’t involve their opposition to woke culture. So many opportunities here.

      See, simple. Agree to this and I won’t call you woke anymore.

    1033. jason says:

      Just make sure to keep your NY voter registration so you can vote for Schumer again next year.”

      wes, supposedly NYC is “questioning his beliefs” so who know, he might drop Schumer after doing so much to give him a majority over the years.

      Nahhhh…

    1034. Bitterlaw says:

      1) Take a stand against woke culture.

      WHAT WOULD SATISFY THIS FOR YOU? I AM NOT GIVING UP SODA OR SPORTS SO YOU WILL NEVER RELENT.

      Why would that be a problem

      2) Recognize the threat it poses to our lonstanding history and culture, and to the education of our children.

      I POSTED THIS SEVERAL TIMES ALREADY ON THIS THREAD. YOU REFUSE TO ADMIT IT.

      Should be a slam dunk if you are not woke.

      3) Stop insulting and mocking those who oppose woke culture. Stop trivializing it and pretending it is about drinking Coke. THAT IS THE NUMBER ONE EXAMPLE USED AGAINST ME BY TGCA. DID YOU MISS THE “WOKE COLA” REFERENCES. Stop saying opposing woke culture is “gestures”.
      OPPOSING WOKE CULTURE IS A GOAL. NOT DRINKING SODA IS A GESTURE.
      Stop saying loss of viewership, sales and revenues don’t matter. I DID NOT SAY THAT. IN FACT, ON THIS THREAD, I SAID THEY DO MATTER IF THE COMPANY WANTS IT TO MATTER. IF THEY ARE WILLING TO LOSE MONEY TO PUSH A POLITICAL AGENDA, THEY DO NOT MATTER TO THAT COMPANY.

      Surely you can find other things to insult people that doesn’t involve their opposition to woke culture. So many opportunities here.

    1036. Bitterlaw says:

      The main problem with jason’s offer is that he will never be satisfied and abide by it. There will always be an excuse or an interpretation or a translation to continue to falsely accuse me.

      I know it has been difficult for him being the third A-hole. Or maybe the fourth. Can’t remember if Mr. Vito was elevated first. It breeds resentment not being one of the top A-holes.

    1037. Bitterlaw says:

      Ok. I will try to meet Jason’s terms. This should last about a day before he condemns me.

    1038. jason says:

      and pretending it is about drinking Coke.”

      I AM NOT GIVING UP SODA”

      See what I mean.

      Dogs don’t, either. They are food whores with no self-respect.

    1042. jason says:

      GFYs.

    1043. jason says:

      Cats DO love us.

      “Two more recent (and better designed) studies got a lot less media attention and found that cats care more about humans than they do about food, and really miss us when we’re gone.

      What The Science Shows

      One, by researchers at Oregon State University’s Human-Animal Interaction, looked at both shelter cats and owned cats. The cats got no food or attention for two and a half hours, and then were offered various stimuli, one at a time. In one session, a person (not the cat’s owner) spoke to the cats, and offered petting and a chance to play. In another, the cats could choose among food, a toy mouse with a shaker inside, or cloths scented with scents of catnip, another cat, or a gerbil. Then the cats were presented with all these things at once and got to pick what they wanted to interact with.

      Less than half the cats chose the food, while exactly half chose the interaction with people. That was true for both the shelter cats and the owned cats. “Although it is often thought [that] cats prefer solitude to social interaction, the data of this study indicate otherwise,” the study authors wrote.

      In the other study, done in Sweden, owned cats were left home alone for two periods—30 minutes and four hours. Owners were asked to behave as usual leaving and returning home. When their owners returned after four hours, all the cats purred more, stretched more, and interacted with their owners more than they had after 30 minutes. Most of the cats were free-fed, so anticipation of a meal was not a factor. “The increased level of social contact initiated by the cats after a longer duration of separation indicates a rebound of contact-seeking behavior, implying that the owner is an important part of the cat’s social environment,” the researchers wrote.

      What does this mean for cat lovers? First of all, when your smug friends suggest your cat doesn’t care about you, you can tell them that science has proven that’s not true. But it also means you can’t leave your cat home alone for the weekend with a pile of cat food and an extra litter box. She will miss you—a lot.”

    1044. Bitterlaw says:

      Cats are like A-holes. You have to earn their respect.
