Its like saying Big Macs and Whoppers are all the same but never having ate a Whopper ever and making the claim repeatedly.

    At this stage its a head smack on silliness. Like not even caring whats going on in news or anything. Just to claim , "Biden and Trump are the same !" repeatedly.
    More like claiming Big Mac and Filet Mingon are the same.

    I gave up on it. Because it seems to be a fail safe option to be able to critique Trump , yet claim he didn't vote for Biden if something happens etc. But like you I list the various drastic differences both men have. Biden isn't a perfect candidate but for right now he's needed now more than ever.

    Arizona's numbers are also in the 5K range right now, but that's deceptive because Gov. Ducey has gone with Trump's "you can't have positive cases if you don't test" idea since March.
    South Korea was also one of the first hit by coronavirus due to their border with China and also has a higher population density than California. half of South Korea's over 51 million people live in the Seoul Capital Area. South Korea has a bigger population than California which has 39 million people.
    South Korea's population density is 507 persons per square kilometer while California's is 97 persons per square kilometer

    In the early Spring, South Korea was once the second worst coronavirus hit country with over 9,000 total covid cases in the first three months. Now South Korea has less than 13,000 total covid cases and less than 60 new cases every day. I guess the South Korean response to the pandemic is different from the response of the State Governors and the President. The cultural difference between South Koreans and Americans is not hard to figure out.

    Florida and Texas will pass California in the next ten days. Since it will take up to 14 days for the covid symptoms to appear in the infected people, it is too late for DeSantis or Abbot to halt the reopening.

    Yeah, NJ government did a good job, although their response was slow, which made New Jersey the second worst hit by coronavirus until California took over the spot.

    Awfully nice of Tim Scott, the GOP’s resident “black friend” to call that video Trump re-tweeted as being indefensible. In terms of outrage, that’s a step below Susan Collins furrowing her brow and firing off angry missives while toeing the party line. Scott disgusts me no end because he betrayed his people to suck up to an abominable racist like Trump and the Republican sycophants who enable that bastard.

    Use the same two words many people used four years ago: Supreme Court. Do they really think Joe Biden would nominate a stooge like Kavanaugh?

    Nor would he be pushing for justices to retire so they could be replaced by younger, more extreme versions.

    Don't bother with that line. I've seen people scream and holler about him voting for Antonin Scalia (Even though everyone voted for him back then) and for his role with Clarence Thomas (while his behavior was bad, Biden did vote against him ultimately). These people do not care at all.

But despite America "spreading freedom and democracy" all over the globe, there's scant evidence that this actually works. If the only way for people living in the global south to prosper is to be one of the lucky few that's allowed to emigrate to the US or Europe, then there is something seriously wrong with the way the world is set up.
    Communism was hardly spreading freedom and democracy. They're one party states, and have histories imprisoning and torturing LGBT for being "defiants" and think killing off political rivals is acceptable. Marginalised people are hardly safe in Communist countries, even today.

    If someone's been voting for Republicans up until 2016, they probably like Kavanaugh. Their problem with Trump is the things that would not apply to a generic Republican President.

    Of course not. Meanwhile, calling Judge Kegger a stooge is an insult to Messrs Howard, Fine and Howard.

    They’re getting more brazen with their white nationalist/Nazi messages.

    For any of those not in the know, 88 is a white nationalist code meaning “heil Hitler” as H is the eighth letter in the alphabet. It’s a popular tattoo with knuckle dragging morons.

    The Trump campaign recently commissioned 88 ads that featured the Nazi triangle symbols. The ones that were eventually taken down from Facebook.
