Not really a surprise, he didnt have much chance of being the Dems pick.  Also dropping out now means that the remaining primaries can be cancelled, which may help slow the spread of Covid-19

Okay that is just the most batshit answer you could give. First as previously mentioned, not all women can take the pill for a wide range of reasons. Second, where the actual flying fuck is the respon

False equivalence, because it implies everyone has to be equally as ignorant as you are.

Ah it looks like some of the Bernie brigade are getting refunds for their donations. I wonder if they'll pass that money on to a charity...

And with Bernie out of the race, unless something radical changes at the Democratic National Convention, the Republicans are going to landslide in November.

Biden, on the other hand, is already viable for Section 4 of the 25th Amendment as it's blindingly obvious that the old man doesn't have a clue what's going on - which is kinda sad in a way as he seems like a pretty affable guy that's a bit affected by dementia... which probably explains the creepy behavior.

FYI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-fifth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

Quote

Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

The irony of this is golden. Even coming from you, who lives in the Trump sphere of ignorance, takes some awful incredible arrogance to make this judgment and not know every word above describes Trump exactly.

Trump has been a basket of stupidity before he won 2016. After 2016, the US has never been worse off, on several fronts more than ever before. You can't name or list one thing Trump put his hands on where he didn't destroy it or irrevocably has upset some balance.

Trump doesn't know the words, respect, rule of law, common sense. What he knows is, fuck you what about me-ism. Tiny little man, with a tiny little brain, overflowing with arrogance and disdain. If Trump loses 2020, it wouldn't surprise me to find out, Trump took a dump on the desk, in the Oval office. Just to be a dick.

I've seen Trump supporters ripping into Biden supporters, and Biden supporters ripping into Trump supporters with the exact same claims and no hint of irony or self-awareness between them. It's an election of two senile, barely coherent, egotistical, perverted, corrupt, rich (though purely because of daddy's money for Trump), out-of-touch old men. How it's possible to see the same flaws in one and not the other takes some proper Nineteen Eighty-Four double-think, but I see it regularly on different sites, most of which are more right-wing but have been getting more and more anti-Trump as time passed as well. The average Republican supporter who actually want a better representation than they have.

But on paper, Biden is the better candidate (note "better", not good), purely by adding in the negatives of Trump's term. He promised a lot of things and hasn't delivered. Those swing voters can't possibly believe any more promises he makes when that's the case, ignoring how often he lies as standard anyway. The only changes he's made have so far been to overturn Obama policies, or impact the US negatively as he treats politics like a business he can afford to keep losing at (which he's had a lot of experience with).

Four more years is a hell of a long time before a proper president can be offered up, but if it's a choice between Trump or Biden, then the latter is the lesser of two evils, just like Trump was against Hillary.

I'm in agreement 100%.

If Biden wins 2020 and fucks shit up as much as Trump, I'll be dumping on him just the same. It would have been nice to see some younger candidates who fit into a mass appeal. Instead its two cranky old dinosaurs who probably wear Depends and are angry about it.

You've got to be kidding. Though Hilary's cold glare made me think of Kesey's Big Nurse or some other Evil Bitch, Trump was always in an class of his own. (Perhaps with Bolsonaro or Duterte). Ruled by a narcissistic, juvenile imbecile is better than by a Cold Professional? Your choice. 

Just count the dead.

P.S. - Much as I hate (with reasons) the current Polish regime, its reaction to the pandemic (quick lockdown) has been rational and effective.

Definitely the former. At least with an idiot, you get what you see and it's pretty obvious what they're doing when they fuck up, no matter how much they blatantly lie. Clinton's are all about that behind the scenes, assassinate your problems, manipulate the media, Moloch-level bullshit that corrupts a country from the inside out without the masses knowing.

What kind of juvenile person tweets garbage like this. It used to be Republicans were the mature ones.

Trump Twitter post: Just watched Mike Wallace wannabe, Chris Wallace, on @FoxNews. I am now convinced that he is even worse than Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Meet the Press(please!), or the people over at Deface the Nation. What the hell is happening to @FoxNews. It’s a whole new ballgame over there!

and when the time comes...  Bernie will back Biden.  just like he did Hillary:

this wasn't a prediction...  it was a statement of the obvious.

and just to close Bernie out for good...  not a Democratic Socialist, nor will i ever be.  but if i was...

if i was...

it would be abundantly clear to me that Bernie, for all his words about a fight...

it is VERY clear that that is in fact exactly what they've done...  twice now.  he never fought, but capitulated... BOTH times...

after taking massive donations...

imagine the back room deals he received in the process:

https://th.bing.com/th?id=OIP.7sgbFtQeGmfYA2NYMkFQQwHaE6&pid=Api&rs=1

no wonder he keeps coming back to lose.

what is saddest to me, is that folk still buy into it.

but the sad truth of it is...

who other choice do left of the left spectrums have?

OK done with Bernie, only thing to watch is when he comes back again, will folk fall for the fraud a 3rd time?

 


so who does Joe chose as VP?

just how woke is Byden?

checkmate Bigots!!!

Is your divide and conquer hopes being dashed by a coalescing opposition instead of divisive posturing?

Bernie near single handedly has changed the landscape enough over the last decade, placing in the minds of Americans his ideas are sensible enough to come to an inevitable reality, in the future with or without him. Especially in light of today's problems. Healthcare attached to employment is a driver with an empty fuel tank. Millions of Americans are losing their healthcare since being laid off. Insurance companies are being greedy and if anything they will raise their rates because of the losses of the laid off employees. Also after this crisis passes, it is a surety those same companies will raise their premiums claiming some pseudo hardship and cry for loans or outright bailouts. Since Americans have already paid and are paying for the biggest socialist program in the history of the United states, I'd rather have it at the least have healthcare be completely free, and eliminate all these crooked middlemen who pad investor pockets spending near half of those dearly paid premiums on internal corporate bureaucracy.

Biden is already making concessions to his ideas on his attempted road to the WH. Everyone knows Biden can't win without Bernie's supporters. Free college education and healthcare are coming to Americans whether the corporate world wants it or not. Economically its far cheaper for Americans than allowing crooked businessmen in between, raking their claws, salivating at the notion of how much can they pillage American paid taxes.

Btw, gonna drop this here for leisure reading.

It was difficult to tell what highway the red car was seen driving on, of course, and none of the available photographs appeared to include any license plate information.  It was clear, however, that the terrain shown did not even vaguely resemble Flagstaff, Arizona, where Sanders was that day.

nah the Democrat Party is a big tent of token candidates meant to appease a whole circus of causes and align them to vote for the Corporate power block behind the Democrat Party.  they pander verbally too, but when the time comes for action, they do nothing.

players like Sanders, AOC and Omar among many others facilitate this nicely.  useful idiots pandering to useful idiot voters.

you may think i want Sanders to fuck off, but i hope he comes back.  the cognitive dissidence needs to continue.  he can keep taking donations and run an lose until his heart gives out for all i care.

but actually make a difference?  nah, the guy has changed nothing.  he works for the Democratic machine.  always has. 

...

Republicans also (largely) have an interesting allegiance to Corporate interests.  i only care about the part that is outsourcing and wholesale looting the entire western world.


my goals are for nationalized western power structures with a HEAVY sense of noblesse oblige.

and with the current global situation around manufacturing...

image.jpeg.b1813f797749279945d5ef4234845e00.jpeg

and the cogs surrounding China (especially India) lining up to replace...  propaganda machines in full effect too...  you'd be amazed the heavy hitting stuff coming out of India aimed squarely at China i have avoided linking, because at the heart it is just propaganda to siphon off China.

every con man barking "isolationism" and "xenophobia" in attempts to mischaracterize  what is nothing more than a desire for "self reliance"...   all the while continuing to outsource the dirty business (manufacturing, science, tech, etc.) to the lowest bidders of the 3rd world.

a nice way to pass the buck on environmental issues as well.  excusing away Chinas and Indias output of pollutants as outside our control, all the while importing those same products in record numbers.

for now, Trump is still the best tool.  though there needs to be more than just him, in every western country.

but the whole western world has been looted and is as "pozzed" as shit thanks to long slow marchers through the institutions and they are intentionally or otherwise carrying water for that beast of a red dragon in the current Chinese Communist Party Regime.


as for Joe Byden...

^that is what Democrats really think about him^

he is just another Patsy to sit in the seat, while the machine takes care of running things.

best of luck...  you are going to need ALL OF IT.

Oh that's some funny shit, knowing the attention whore might be stuck in a concrete tomb. I can see him kickin and screaming all the way. Shouting, I'm the President!  I decide! I'm the best decider! I have total authority! My authority is absolute! Because, that's the way it has to be! All the while service men are coddling him with yessirs as they drag him away. The irony of it all would be stupendous.

There will be some great political cartoons coming from such a moment.

It's no wonder his daughter gtfo'd over Easter. None in his family want to be stuck in a room with him for days and certainly not any sane person in general. At the least, when he finally is let out, he will be qualified at something. Then he can say, he knows underground bunkers better than anyone else.
