    And Biden swings for the Progressive fence announcing that male inmates that identify as female should be housed with female inmates (assuming they don't identify as male, I guess).

    Reported that Andrew Yang raised $10M last quarter. Can’t say I saw that coming.

    Bernie called Warren a "capitalist through her bones."

    Take that Liz!

  • George KGeorge K Super Moderator Posts: 10,000 Senior Member

    "To her bones", and I think he was quoting her.

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Is this supposed to be an insult?

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,239 Senior Member

    He was using it to point out where he and Warren differ. He is a dottering old fool. Still a better choice than cheeto Jesus.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I'll take the devil I know. What you see is what you get with DT. These other's,, who freaking knows.

    The USSC appointments alone are worth another 4 years. The progressive tears and screaming at the sky would just be a bonus. :)

    Tell that to the Kurds.

    Old truism in American politics: if you don't vote, you don't count.

    Kurds don't vote.

    No that’s not what I’m saying. But you have to admit that I’m probably right. The Kurds fate shouldn’t overshadow US citizens, should it? We have our own war zones right here in the US. Innocent children are being gunned down in crossfire all the time. There’s no outrage. There’re no constant media coverage. There’s no ultra-famous celebrities taking on the cause, no outraged children speaking to the UN. In fact, you won’t even see it unless you go looking for it. Corporate media has no interest in their story. Why is that? Could it be thinly veiled racism? I’m starting to think so.

    You really need to stop reading The Blaze, it is damaging your brain.

    For the record there are athletes and celebrities working in those communities all the time.

    Sadly even the Blaze doesn’t cover it. Nobody does. This is something that I’ve said over multiple arguments for several years.

    I try to refrain from parroting the scripted anti GOP Kool Aid flavor of the day from the MSM.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,239 Senior Member

    No you only parrot anti-BLM and anti-Dem kool aid.

    Actually no. I don't think our troops should be over there.

  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 3,555 Senior Member

    Back to our regularly scheduled program....

    Quarterly filings show Bernie had the most in the bank and raised the most through individual contributions during the third quarter. He was followed by Liz in both categories and then by Mayor Pete. Biden was 4th in both.

  • LandoLando Posts: 56 Member

    Joe spent 2 million more than he brought in.........that shows he really cares and should win, right?

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 4,093 Senior Member

    Here's a question I have: all of the dems (with the notable exception of Tulsi) proposed "Codifying" Roe v. Wade. What exactly is that supposed to look like? Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I don't understand how that is supposed to happen.

    Anyone know why this idea has caught fire and how it is to be implemented?

  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 3,555 Senior Member

    Couldn't the federal government pass a law making restrictions to accessing abortion illegal?

    Wouldn't it over rule any state laws or would we run into a separation of powers issue?

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 4,093 Senior Member
    edited October 16 #61

    No I think you'd have big separation of powers problems, as well as limitations on Congress via the commerce clause. The one thing that would be clearly legal would be to condition the receipt of federal highway funds on state's not passing abortion restrictions, but politically that's a lot tougher sell than raising the drinking age to 21.
