If the drafters of our constitution wanted this nation to be a Christian fundie nation...

wouldn't they have said it explicitly in the constitution?

Isn't the absence of such explicit establishment of religion language evidence that they did not want ANY established religion?

When people say "religious liberties", what religion are they referring to?

There are hundreds, possibly thousands of different religions with different doctrines, practices, acceptable behaviors, etc. Any religion at any time can be offended. Any law could violate their "religious liberties". Stopping at red lights angers my God.

How does Bill Barr not have covid-19 yet?

Or am I being impatient?

If you had Adam Gase as the first fired head coach in the NFL this season, you lose!

This video is just too damn cute. Almost makes me want to have a kid. Almost.

The huge difference between Boris Johnson and Trump regarding "sympathy".

When Johnson contracted the disease, it was in the initial spread around the world. His case was a result of bad luck and timing.

Trump, on the other hand, contracted the disease 8 mos. after knowing about it and how deadly it was going to be. Eight mos.!!!! Also, he downplayed it, ridiculed mitigation efforts, and mocked people wearing masks. He practically was begging for the disease.

Sure, his nutty followers will have sympathy, and maybe people will hope that he recovers, but I don't see the general public having sympathy for an idiot.

Transcript excerpt from Tuesday's presidential debate

Chris Wallace: (07:50)
All right. In any case, why you holding the big rallies? Why you not? You go first, sir.

President Donald J. Trump: (07:56)
Because people want to hear what I have to say. I mean-

Chris Wallace: (07:59)
But are not worried about us spreading disease?

President Donald J. Trump: (08:01)
Im doing my job as a president, and Ill have 25, 35,000 people show up at airports. We use airports and hangers and we have a lot of people-

Chris Wallace: (08:06)
Are you not worried about the disease issues, sir?

President Donald J. Trump: (08:08)
Well, so far we have had no problem whatsoever. Its outside. Thats a big difference according to the experts. We do them outside, we have tremendous crowds, as you see, and literally on 24 hours notice. And Joe does the circles and has three people someplace.

Vice President Joe Biden: (08:26)
By the way, did you see one of the last big rallies he had? A reporter came up to him to ask him a question, he said, No, no, no. Stand back, put on your mask, put on a mask. Have you been tested? Im way far away from those other people. Thats what he said, Im going to be okay. Hes not worried about you. Hes not worried about the people out there [crosstalk 00:08:48].

President Donald J. Trump: (08:48)
Weve had no negative effect.

Vice President Joe Biden: (08:49)
No negative effect. Come on.

President Donald J. Trump: (08:51)
Weve had no negative effect, and weve had 35, 40,000 people at these rallies.

Chris Wallace: (08:55)
All right. Do you want to just quickly finish up? Because I want to move on to our next-

Vice President Joe Biden: (08:57)
Yes, I would. Hes been totally irresponsible the way in which he has handled the social distancing and people wearing masks, basically encouraged them not to. Hes a fool on this.

President Donald J. Trump: (09:08)
If you could get the crowds, you would have done the same thing. But you cant. Nobody cares.

Chris Wallace: (09:12)
Gentlemen, can we move on to the-


Hello, I'm Bill Gates, Chairman of Microsoft (Windows 3.1)

NC Senator Thom Tillis-R tests positive for covid-19

He was at the ACB SCOTUS rose garden event last week.

Damn Ruth.

Enough with the conspiracy theories.

Like a child without adult supervision, Trump played with fire and got severely burned. He's not some cunning political genius. People are giving him far too much credit. The man aint that smart. His money came from his daddy, from banks, from The Apprentice, and finally from Russians looking to launder dirty money. And, he blew through ALL of that.

This damages his campaign bigly. The major question of this campaign is Trump's poor response to the covid-19 pandemic, and by contracting it himself, he proves that he cannot manage this crisis on a personal level, let alone on a national one. Even if this takes his other scandals off the table, he comes across as highly incompetent and weak.

The election is not over, but it's hard to see how he wins an election that he was already losing by huge margins. We still have to turnout and put Trump behind us for good.
