I missed tonight's debate...but

Searching the web to try and find a replay.....
CNN is showing clips ONLY and they are edited to show Sanders in a more favorable light than Biden.

Or am I imaging this?

Trump too personally wounded by Pelosi to negotiate with her on coronavirus stimulus deal

What a fucking coward...

Just voted in the AZ primary...

And I went with Joe.

Bernie must be stopped before he fucks up this election again......

America CANNOT AFFORD 4 more years of the fucking racist, asswipe, Putin dick smoking IMBECILE.

A NEW WORLD ORDER

When Bush Sr spoke of this, I thought it was somewhat stupid, and a clumsy attempt at lofty rhetoric.

I've now realized it has come full circle and the idea was quite prescient.

The "New World Order" that Republicans dreamed of back then is coming to fruition now with today's Republican party.
It is the order of Putin. A New World Order owned and commanded by the Russian fascists who OWN the Republican party.

The New World Order will be run by Putin and his inner circle of oligarchs. The United States will cease to exist as a functioning democracy in a short time. As will the rest of the western democracies. We will return to the feudalism of the 12th century.

I probably won't live long enough to experience the horrors of this world, but I sure am saddened for my children. As I've said many times to my son, human beings think they are so advanced, but as a society we are COMPLETELY unevolved....

I just watched Devin Nunes opening statement

What a fucking lying, traitorous, Un-American, hypocritical, ASSHOLE.

Lie after lie after hypocritical LIE.

When will the Treasonous Repukes learn?

That Doturd will DESTROY their party, rather than build it???

In honor of my 1000th post here at DU, I would like to talk about my personal heroes

My Personal Heroes
There are others, but these stand out in my mind.
(in no particular order)

FDR: His policies, in getting us out of the disaster of the depression caused by Republican supply side economics, was an incredible achievement. His speeches daring the ruling class to challenge him were awe inspiring. Oh, and that little matter defeating fascism was pretty brave as well.

Neil Armstrong: The greatest scientific achievement in human history. While he was the first, I think of all of the Apollo astronauts and the courage it took to even go to the moon. On top of a 6.5 M pound controlled explosion, traveling farther into space than any other humans, then landing on the moon in essentially an aluminum can. These men had more courage in their fingernail clippings than the entire tonnage of moon landing deniers and flat earthers COMBINED.

Christopher Hitchens: His writings, his speeches, his debates. Such a brilliant mind. He inspired me to pursue a lifetime of skeptical questioning of long held dogmatic beliefs in our society. A true genius whose work “God is Not Great” will go down in history as one of the great works of literature.

Albert Einstein: Speaking of genius, his work in physics, while hard to understand sometimes, is a true exercise of critical thinking. I had to really work at understanding General and Special Relativity, but it was well worth the undertaking. His effect on our civilization is immeasurable.

Bobby Orr: The greatest hockey player who ever lived. Watching him as a kid inspired me to take up the game and play well beyond high school years. He cemented my lifelong love of the game.

Carl Sagan and Neil Degrasse Tyson: Two of the greatest science communicators of our time. Professor Sagan inspired an entire generation with his Cosmos series. Dr. Tyson has picked up the torch and continued that inspiration through brilliant communication of complex science to average folks.

Barack Obama: In the face of withering criticism and insults, he maintained a grace and dignity seldom seen in our political leaders. But I was most impressed with his intellect. I NEVER want to “have a beer” with the President. I want my president to be way smarter and much more experienced at government than me. Completely opposite of the traitorous imbecile currently “occupying” the WH today.

Hillary Clinton: In the face of 30 fucking years of unending bashing, she displayed a level of dignity, grace, and fortitude not matched by any man I know. How she put up with so much BS and didn't call it quits I'll never know. A truly remarkable person. I donated to her, I campaigned for her, and I VOTED FOR HER. She is my President, not the Russian stooge illegitimately occupying the WH now.

Abraham Lincoln: About the only Republican I could give 2 shits about. Well, not really….His leadership during the most existential crisis in American history was a remarkable achievement. His Gettysburg address will stand for all time as a testament to his greatness as a leader during the most troubling of circumstances. Truly awe-inspiring. (The only other Republican I could 2 shits for was Teddy Roosevelt, who through his tireless efforts on establishing our national park system, preserved for all eternity the beauty of our nation. It’s CRIMINAL that the fuckwit in the WH right now is hell bent on destroying that legacy)

Elijah Cummings: I can’t possibly say anything that will add to the stature of this civil rights hero. His devotion to this country, it’s people, and especially the Constitution and the rule of law will never be forgotten. At a time when we are cynical of our politician’s motives and behaviors, Rep Cummings always displayed the grace and dignity of a true American patriot. Other than Lincoln, I cannot say the same for ANY OTHER Republican I have ever encountered.

Rosa Parks: For giving a giant middle finger to the establishment. She was a badass!!!

Dr Oz is officially a QUACK

Just turned on the TV to watch the Yankee game, stumbled on Oz's show, and his guest was DEEPAK CHOPRA.

Probably selling some more idiotic NONSENSE that he's been peddling for years. Yup, his latest book for rubes.
How anyone still watches Oz after he ADMITTED UNDER OATH the shit he peddles is crap. Now, he has on the biggest bullshitter of WOO in human history, Chopra.

PT Barnum was right on the money....

Nixon's phone call to Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon 7/20/1969

Was Presidential eloquence in how a statesman marks a human changing event. I was no fan of Nixon, but his spoken words on that occasion were intelligent, appropriate, and possessed the correct amount of humility as well as pride for such an occasion.

Is there ANY DOUBT that if something like that happened today, the IMBECILIC FUCKING MORON JERK OFF ILLEGALLY OCCUPYING the WH today would make it ALL ABOUT HIM??!?!?!?

My thumbnail veiw of the first debate (so far)

Only 2 candidates answered this question correctly:
"Whats the most consequential threat to the US right now?"
Jay Inslee said "Donald Trump" and de Blasio said "Russia".
BOTH were EXACTLY correct. All the others said polit-speak blah blah blah...
Also...IMHO.....Tulsi Gabbard is an asshole.
Just another Jill Stein waste of space.
