  1. Yeah I suppose you have some kind of direct line to the afterlife so you could ask him about that... Paul Harvey was a staunch conservative, but aside from political ideology he was a champion for factual truths hence his "Rest of the Story" segments (you might want to think about reading Harvey's book of the same name). In that respect I hope to be able to try to emulate Harvey in being able to point out what appears to be obfuscation and (intentional or incidental) inaccuracies in favor of presenting actual facts to show when something is being (again intentionally or incidentally)
  2. The statement you're referring to about Trump saying he found his 13-year old daughter more attractive than his wife, was allegedly in a pre-release article in the Washington Post. The accusation was removed from the published article because the statement could neither be confirmed by a second party or documentation. The part edited out of the final release follows: "Can I ask you something?"Trump asked someone I know, about his then-13-year-old kid, "Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?" "Someone (unidentified) that I know" Cohen wrote
  3. You might want to get your facts straight... First of all I didn't "Blame Biden"{sic} for the ad, although if you watched it you can see was produced by the Biden for President PAC and Biden did do a voice at the end saying: "I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message". What I did specifically say about the Democrat presidential hopeful is that he's been doing a bang-up job of 'armchair quarterbacking' after the fact, about how he would have dealt with the Coronavirus pandemic, despite initially referring to president Trump as "xenophobic" for instituting a travel ban from co
  4. Yeah, probably working on some holiday flavors like Coke/Sprite is doing...

  6. I noticed something interesting when (re)looking over the FEC link I posted above... In the "Recipient" column there is listed " BIDEN FOR PRESIDENT" so I clicked on it. One of the first things I noticed was how many people who registered their 'employer' as Unemployed None Not Employed *Not To Be Confused With "Retired" Most of those donors to the Biden campaign donated modestly (less than $100), but there were some who were shown to have donated hundreds and even thousands of dollars. My first thoughts were how does someone who reportedly isn't empl
  7. **First of all I would like to encourage anyone to post 2020 campaign ads (from either candidate) that they believe misrepresents the candidate, political party or facts related to either. Feel free to express yourself - but try to keep things as factually accurate as possible or expect to be called on it. A Joe Biden 2020 Campaign ad- Features the co-owner of The Blind Pig Bar and Music venue in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This man blames president Trump for the bar's recent loss in revenue. Not covid-19, not the state's Democrat governor who mandates lockdowns and restrictions
  8. Always nice when any community can have a grassroots event that people seem to enjoy. Politics and partisanship aside.
  9. Good to know... I guess you'll be staying home November 3rd huh? I don't know how I missed this, I can certainly understand why it wasn't a major news feature on the regular 'drive by media', but looking at some articles in Newsweek I ran across this little Jewel from August 2020... Newsweek: (8/25/2020) Richard Spencer Reiterates Support for Biden, Disavows 'Useless' and 'Traitorous' GOP White nationalist Richard Spencer (white supremacism, white nationalist, "Nazi") reiterated his support for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden Tuesday, days after a sp
  10. We've already heard that from how many liberal celebrities and others prior to the 2016 election, and for the most part every one of them are still here because despite dissatisfaction and their threat to leave they all know that this is still the best country available to them. Now the 'boss', Bruce Springsteen says he’ll be 'on the next plane' to Australia if Trump wins reelection... What makes these people (Trump included) think anyone really cares if they stay or leave the country based on who gets elected to the Oval Office for four years? Personally I'd think if I were one of t
  11. It seems the former VP once again "misspoke" when he said he had the "overwhelming endorsement" of the boiler maker's union during his townhall on ABC... It seems he doesn't. Newsbreak: Pennsylvania’s Boilermakers Local 154 Union Endorses President Trump https://www.newsbreak.com/news/2054553416401/pennsylvanias-boilermakers-local-154-union-endorses-president-trump "The boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, okay?" Biden responded. "So the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do,
  12. Yeah, there we see it again... When the president says something inaccurate, you are quick to denounce Trump and proclaim he's "lying" - But when Biden makes an inaccurate statement you become an apologists, rush to his defense claiming he "misspoke"... But apparently you're just fine voting for someone endorsed by Socialists, Communists, anarchists, the Black Bloc or other anti-American, anti-democracy, left-wing radical or violent groups... even one that the Democratic presidential hopeful says doesn't exist - telling the president and the American people: "It's idea, not
  13. I wasn't going to post anything about the simultaneously broadcast townhalls of Trump and Biden, I figured if anyone was interested they would watch if they weren't they aren't interested but some tweets about the Trump town hall by a couple of Twitter members, seemingly no fans of president Trump caught my eye and I had to laugh... Two Twitter tweeters commenting about how upset they were about a woman sitting behind the president during the townhall, nodding as he spoke and occasionally giving Trump a thumbs up. OK, everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
  14. I just had affirmation from someone who works in the Corrugated Box manufacturing industry that despite the ongoing difficulties, they are producing and shipping product at twice what what they were last year and production is still lagging behind demand.
  15. After the press asked Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden what he thought about court packing he responded: “you’ll know my position on court-packing the day after the election.” and in an an interview with KTNV, a local ABC affiliate in Las Vegas, saying: voters “don’t deserve” to know his stance on expanding the Supreme Court, once again 'flip-flop Joe' seems to have changed his mind... During Biden's ABC Town Hall broadcast from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia Joe Biden stated voters “do have a right to know where I stand” and he promised he would make his opinion
  16. OK, I've heard from at least two sources now that there is a shortage of Corrugated Paper Packaging and Boxes (better get those online Christmas orders in early). Some of the reasons for the shortage seems to be attributable to several problems that began earlier this year. Corrugated Box Industry In Distress Over Rising Pulp Prices And Supply Disruptions (September 2020) Prices for pulp, the raw material of paper and corrugated boxes, have shot up 30 to 40 percent since last summer, says Nicholas Meade, senior economist for the pricing and purchasing service at IHS Market.
  17. The more things change the more things stay the same... I was thinking back to the last presidential election about this time and remembering "I just wish this was be over... regardless of how it turns out, I just want it to be over". Déjà vu all over again... I currently find myself quickly approaching that same mindset.
  18. Interestingly enough I was informed the video is a real historical U.S. Government PSA from 1957. I was advised to visit YouTube channel maintained by the National Library of Medicine and scroll through the selections of instructional, training and public service videos, (https://www.youtube.com/user/NLMNIH/videos) Sure enough the 1957 PSA for Asian Flu was among what appears to me to be actual government and public health videos listed in the library. Also among those videos was a few training films I remember seeing when I was in Hospital Corps School, in the Navy way back in the
  19. Seems whenever president Trump makes a statement that's questionable he's too often accused of "lying" to the American people or someone like Pelosi wants to try to suggest the president's cognitive skills may be impaired. Not so for Ol' Joe... I haven't heard a peep from CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS or the kind of social media outrage we see when a Republican makes one of those "verbal gaffs" Biden has become (in)famously known for with the Biden campaign and some in the media saying the Democrat presidential hopeful "misspoke". Recently at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania Biden stated during

    all over the country

    Speaking of "ALL OVER THE COUNTRY", from Minnesota to California. I wanted to check online news sources to see if there were as many stories about people stealing and destroying campaign signage as there was during the last presidential election and ran across this... The Fresno Bee: Trump, Devin Nunes campaign signs burn in Dinuba as arson is suspected https://www.fresnobee.com/news/politics-government/election/article246382000.html That happened days ago on the 11th of October... But here's the rest of the story from just hours ago... The Sun: Van
