Here are a couple of odd observations on this awful year when we had to confront two major concerns: racial oppression and guys not washing their hands. The DNC has mercifully ended. It was a painfully negative portrayal of America and Americans. By contrast, the RNC has actually been positive and positive. Herschel Walker gave a moving speech in support of Trump. I was concerned for a moment when Herschel discussed his experience of maturing “in the deep South.” I naturally believed, “Oh no, please do not mention Drunkle Mac by name!”
Dems state we are a bigoted country not doing anything about the global warming that raises sea levels, and a country that does not give minorities a possibility. I guess this message would sound more true if Michelle Obama had actually not made her speech from her 7,000 square foot, $ 12 million, oceanfront home on Martha’s Vineyard. And maybe global warming has actually become less of a problem given that 17-year-old Greta Thunberg found young boys.
The Democrat platform is practically that 8 unarmed African-Americans were shot by cops last year, and that the Dems, versus all proof, would have done something much better with the China COVID pandemic. But taking a look at the old guard Democrat geriatocracy of Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, it appears Trump’s coronavirus policy is working just fine, because they are all still alive.
The Democrats talk about having a”big tent.
“From the looks of their speakers, it ought to be an oxygen camping tent. Biden’s speech(which had the most affordable bar set given that AOC was accepted into college), needed to have been pre-recorded. It was full of non-specific political platitudes, one of which was to “choose light [him] over darkness [Trump]” It makes me worried when a guy in Biden’s condition and at his age welcomes me to follow him “into the light.”
Kamala Harris provided a good speech. A Democrat celebration that says it does not like stereotypes generates a Jamaican lady to look after a rich, elderly, white man.
So to sum it up, this election will pit Biden’s faux compassion and self-professed honor versus your 401K and your household’s security.
The Portland Path Blazers upset the LA Lakers in the first video game of the grievance-based NBA season. The Path Blazers (the name is most likely racist; I can not envision those who blazed routes out West didn’t eliminate a few Native Americans) played like their lives depended on it. And they might. If they lose, the team would have to leave the NBA bubble and go back to Portland.
NBA ratings are way down. Folks do not like being preached to about BLM by players who do not understand it is a communist company. But I have to say, the NBA bubble in Orlando has actually worked well. It has kept NBA gamers safe from viruses and Kardashians.
The Southern District of New York City Attorney general of the United States’s office has actually become the enforcement punks of the Democrat Celebration. They harassed Trump on his taxes, the Trump Foundation, etc. They seem to only create criminal offenses against Republican pals of Trump: Michael Cohen, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and now Steve Bannon. The Clinton Family Foundation can take in hundreds of millions from corrupt immigrants, spend simply a fraction on charity, and not get touched. Bannon takes a salary from a foundation and gets arraigned. If Trump truly wishes to “lock her up” in New York, Hillary would have to switch to Republican and work for him.
Putin attempted to kill another political rival, Alexei Navalny, who was poisoned with a radioactive beverage. If he dies, in Russia this will be called “natural causes.” The closest thing we have in America is the Clintons. A resignation from a Clinton operation is not finish until you are discovered dead. Anyone who has ever worked with the Clintons can not even get approved for a life insurance policy in America.
The big downward pattern in COVID cases and deaths has gone largely unreported by the media, who are pulling for the infection to injure Trump on November 3rd. They told us a month ago that Trump was trailing Biden by 12 points. Even the media didn’t really believe that, and now the race is close. Now, with mail-in tallies, it is crucial that Democrats get upwards of 300 percent turnout in the cemeteries of crucial battleground states.
