    Perfect timing. The King was warming up on the previous thread.

    Mrs. piggy now talking today about no debates, and going after Trump even if he loses election. The wall to wall Biden ads have begun (at least in my area), all voice overs, have yet to hear or see one that actually involves joe speaking at all.

    Get used to this:

    Of course, you’re all aware that Ben Carson isn’t a real M.D. like Dr. Jill Biden. Just ask Whoopie Goldberg.

    I listened to the local police scanners there Tuesday night for about 3hr from midnight eastern till about 3am, every car pulled over and nearly ever license (driver and passengers combined) called in for warrant checks was from IL. I found that interesting.

    This is EXACTLY the old Mafia approach: “Nice country…be a shame if something happened to it.”

    Buttigieg KNOWS the people instigating the chaos are the Democrat base this year, and the Dems are saying: if you give us what we want, then and ONLY then will we tell our allies to stop the chaos. Otherwise we will ramp it up!

    I’ll vote that Ben Carson would not be able to improve Joe’s brain, not one bit.

    The quandary of the Left…

    They SHOULD wait until more Vietnam Era vets (like me) die off. Because we’re well armed and still ready, willing and able to defend this country. And we WILL.

    But they’re afraid if wait, then their chance to “fundamentally transform” this country may slip away.

    What to do? Time will tell.

    Man the identity politics of the RNC is nauseating, I understand they just fighting fire with fire…but it’s still nauseating AF.

    New York cop talking. He’s saying what we all see: things got worse faster than anyone could imagine. The goal is “no cops”, not to get rid of bad cops. The goal is no justice system, not justice for all.
    And it’s all happening in Dem-controlled areas.

    The Left might find a land without cops not to their liking. The only thing keeping them from us is the popo. They will find out lacking constraints we deplorables can be bastards.

    Speech too long, too much pandering to “people of color” first woman on the moon etc. The fireworks display was top notch however.

    drdog09 #21 –

    Went back to working from my office (about a 13 mile drive) June 15. My trip is at least 5 minutes shorter. No traffic jams. I drive past Kelly Services world headquarters (about a 10 story building) every day. No more than a dozen cars in the parking lot.

    Things I wouldn’t want to own: commercial real estate, malls, hotels, restaurants (especially ones that don’t serve liquor), airlines.

    REITs out of the question now.

    Wonder how many gallons of vodka Nancy Pelosi consumed watching this speech and fireworks?

  24. 2020 August 27 9:23 pm

    There once was a mullet quite contrary,
    Hid under the moss, always wary,
    The ditch carp of the left with sucker snout,
    Were always on the prowl, mucking about,
    To their good fortune they never called him out.

  25. 2020 August 27 9:29 pm

    26 – did any of that make networks, or did they ax it soon as speech was over?

  26. 2020 August 27 9:42 pm

    I saw it all. then tuned out when the opera singer came on, but went to you tube to hear him.

    The opera singer sang some religious songs, which was a dig at the Dems.

    That is the Achilles heel of modern television. Everything is in slices, no long form. The internet busts that model to hell. More people listen to Joe Rogan podcasts than the 3 prime networks over a given month.

    I thought the personal stories last night and every night at the convention were amazing…REAL people with REAL stories. Instead screeching outraged celebrities. Very different conventions

    Another Target department store was looted and destroyed Wednesday night in the name of, um…somebody or something. Targets appear to be the target, all pun intended, of the mobs.

    Question: why on Earth would Target EVER re-build in those locations? Those locations, btw, are NOT in the suburbs. They are in, or on the edge of the inner cities. They employ hundreds of people from those cities, and provide access to affordable goods for those same people. Now they are gone…perhaps forever, but certainly for many years.

    So the mobs who loot and burn these stores are destroying the lives and livelihood of the very communities they CLAIM they seek “social justice” for.

    Such is the “logic” of the Left.

    JR, 36,

    I am going to the dark side again. Target —

    Stock is listed as overvalued even though it is in the band for expected PE and earnings. But lets say the CEO realized a % of stores are misallocated. Can’t sell them likely, so what to do. Why not cut a deal behind the scenes with BLM to torch them then collect the insurance?

    Target has been on my list for a couple of years now because of their aggressive gay and esp transgender policies. Store associates will not interfere with men going into women’s rest rooms per company policy.

    So I consider the riot/looting/burning of Target to be blue-on-blue

    one way to avoid the long lines at the checkout stand at a Target store is to loot it!! Well played, rioters!

  37. 2020 August 28 8:32 am

    Target even restocks the shelves while the rioters are looting so as not to offend them by not having 60-inch TVs on hand.

    All-in-all I thought the Republican convention was very well done. The presenters were believable and likable. The GOP did a great job of differentiating itself from the Democrats by denouncing rioting and portraying itself as a party that still believes in God. The opera singer singing Ave Maria at the close was a master stroke.

    I realize some thought there were too many POCs, but every one was either an officeholder/candidate, administration official or had an important message (e.g. David Dorn’s widow).

    If Trump can garner 15%+ of the black vote, he will be hard to beat.

    42 BC,

    The King will be watching the DNC for the next 70 straight days.

    Eph #43 –

    The DNC Convention has become a liability for the Democrats. They came across as an angry, extreme party. And the worst of the DNC was in the afternoon, away from telecasts. Regardless, it was a dumpster fire. Many are still trying to figure out if Biden’s performance was live or pieced together from 32 takes.

    When before has a presidential candidate campaigned through his wife and VP candidate?

    Trump showed last night that he will attack Biden on China. China’s interference in US elections dates back to at least the Bill Clinton years (bundlers). But, the media doesn’t have a problem with it because the Chi Coms always support the Dems.

    The MSM and fraudsters and going to work 24/7 for the next 70 days.

    3 point shift in Vegas probability from earlier this week.

    Biden was at 57% probability; he’s now at 54%.
