    Pete is purposefully becoming more and more conservative. He senses Biden is slipping and he knows he can't be more progressive than Warren or Bernie, so he wants to appeal to the pragmatic, no you can't, big ideas are toxic, conservative crowd that Biden cornered the market.

    Supposedly and even if his company got it, there's no indication he did anything illegal, and he did not receive that full amount.

    I really can't believe the right with a straight face is criticizing Biden sitting on two boards, complaining he profited internationally while his dad was VP, in an effort to defend a President whose kids are doing far more than that. It's a level of hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness that borders on satirical.

    There isn’t anyone on stage that can beat Trump, hence the never-ending search for something impeachable (without an actual vote).

    If a candidate was the next Bill Clinton or Obama, impeachment talk would stop and all of the talking heads would be talking about that person.

    But continue as you were.

    hahaha, I don't know if you're once again trolling, or because of your sources of news you aren't hearing about the head-to-head match-ups with Trump. Add to that the fact a majority of Americans in recent polls not only support the impeachment, but the removal of Trump as well and you have a recipe for trouble for Trump - which is probably why he's asking foreign countries to help him win.

    He ignores the multiple, constant polling that shows (once again, multiple polls of varying and intersecting cross-tabs) that show even Beto and Booker would beat Trump head to head, and of course, Bernie with the biggest margin.

    I get it that the prediction markets and 538 got it terribly bad. But to dismiss the entire field despite the above is just off the wall.

    But this is a guy who said and honestly believes in heart of hearts that a Trump vs Bernie would mimic the 1984 EV results for Trump lol.

    Which is why I think he's wildly ignorant because of his news sources, or a troll. Both warrant the same response.

    Yes and Yes. Go back and stick your head in the sand, the adults in the room that are capable of reason and objectivity are holding a discussion.

    Sigh.

    He still flies coach today by default. During his brutal schedule, doing multiple campaign events a day, sometimes the commercial inventory from airlines was available.

    You got two options in this scenario: You either pare down your schedule to meet the available inventory from commercial airlines, or you look for alternate modes of travel that will still get you there on schedule.

    It's not hypocritical. If he tried to hide it, maybe it would be. This is absolutely nothing like just like how you posted a clip taken out of context about millionaires and billionaires that abuse their greed. This is absolutely nothing about DC condo, his home, and the vacation house house his wife inherited.

    But hey, if you can't find dirt you gotta manufacture something.

    Also noticeable from the debate: Moderators did not ask about climate change. That's right. The DNC doesn't want to go there, because, money. The lobbyists are calling the shots, like any other for profit, privately held corporation that is a political party.

    If that’s true then they won’t be supporting Warren because it’s universally accepted that she will tank the economy.

    On horn news, CNN came back from commercial, and you can hear Warren telling I think was Chuck Todd " I CAN NOT SAY THAT", I wonder what they were talking about during commercial break

    One day after the debate, Warren's campaign announced she was reviewing alternative funding options for her version of Medicare For All plan - just like Kamala did one day after a debate, walked it back entirely.

    If you believe healthcare is a human right, if that is important to you, then there is only one person you can trust and it's not Warren.

    Another difference between Warren and Bernie:

    They both rolled in some cash from their Senate campaign coffers. All good and well, neither tried to hide that off and include in the day 1 funding total a la Beto and didn't get creative with the accounting.

    The difference is that at least 20 billionaires have donated to Warren's Senate campaign, including Super PACs and corporations. She recently announced she wouldn't accept that kind of funding (grass roots only) in the general if nominated because Bernie pushed her to the left on this.

    She initially swore it off for the primary only but all bets off for the general if nominated. But she won't go out of her way to remind you that she is beholden to corporate benefactors from the Senate campaign cash.

    Healthcare is NOT a human right anymore than having a roof over your head or food in your belly or a car to drive or nice clothes or a college education or your favorite, a reach around every day is a human right.

    Hillary just called Tulsi a Russian asset, lol.

    Despite what anyone's feelings about Tulsi may be, I'll recognize that she had the guts to step down as vice chair of the DNC because it was rigging the primary in 2016 and called attention to it. Some people called her crazy, and then WikiLeaks validated all of it..

    I doubt she does run third party but if she does, nearly all the votes she'll get are from people that would have stayed home or wasn't voting the nominee regardless (See also: Ralph Nader). If anything, those voters end up voting down ballot when they would have stayed home.

    I checked out some of the reasoning and it seems on Facebook and Reddit there are more and more people posting saying, "I support Tulsi" and when you look at the background of the poster, they are either new to the platform, or have a curious number of pro-Trump posts, possibly indicating a Russian bot.

    Nicky,

    If you attack me, I will come back at you. Are you not used to that? I thought you would since most of your ideas are BS.

    I also don't feel the need to be cordial to someone who is dishonest with their beliefs and supports what's happening today in politics. It's slimey. Your side is responsible, and you continue to do it. Therefore, you and people lie to themselves and everyone else on political issues of the day can go **** yourself.

    Exactly Brad. This guy is delusional in every respect. The fact you and others communicate with him like his thoughts and points are valid does baffle me. Same goes for Hill and Zona. Their dishonesty on most subjects should be treated with disdain and ridiculed. You can't communicate with someone like this. It's just not possible.

    All you're good for is throwing insults at people and telling people you live in Boston.

    Even the resident white power guy on the board tries to discuss policy on occasion lol.

    The irony here is the first interaction I ever had with Nipro was in a thread where I was in a civil discussion discussing something, IIRC it was at the early stages of the Mueller investigation and of course there was lots of discussion and theory crafting and hypotheticals.

    Out of no where Nipro quotes a post with 2 paragraphs, mostly f bombs and exclamation points. I had never seen the handle before.

    I was completely dumbfounded. Then I saw him get dogpiled on the other boards thanks to his drama.

    The beauty of this board is it allows you to search the history.

    This is a typical Nipro post. Hills was summarizing a link and Nipro flipped out and questioned his mental stability.

    Nipro attacks firehawk multiple times in a thread about climate change. He seems to have taken offense over the fact that others ridiculing Trump for saying climate change didn't exist because there was a cold front

    Yet another typical example.

    The common theme here is Nipro takes graves offense when you call out Trump on his bizarre and stupid things. He'll defend it by saying you're the one that attacked him but 98% of his hissy fits were not self-defense but defense of his God Emporer.

    I'm sure recently I've got out of my way a couple times to set him off because it's hilarious but about 98% of his meltdowns were triggers from someone posting factual information that put Trump in a not so flattering light.

    You should start a thread about that instead of attempting to change the subject in this thread when getting owned by Nipro.

    He and BJ are on ignore for me. I'll sometimes hit unignore to see what BJ has to say, but at no point do I even so much as give a passing glance to nipro's posts.
