Re: Trump Admin Meltdown Thread Part V - All Hail King Donald, First of his name

On twitter, they were really pulling for Biden over the more progressive candidates, and I'm thinking they have given up on the GOP and will work to make Dems more conservative, which would be quite the battle. Or its what leads to a prominent 3rd party? Ideally, you get Charlie Baker, Mitt Romney ...

Re: Trump Admin Meltdown Thread Part V - All Hail King Donald, First of his name

It's a blessing in the short term, but strategy in the long term. What'll be interesting on their end is 2024. Who do they endorse then? If Biden wins and goes 1 term and throws his weight behind VP/younger Democrat does that person get endorsed this full throatedly or will it be who the Republican...

Re: Yet Another Dumb Way to Pass Time (Music Related Again)

I'd say it was Achtung Baby! I was 17 when it came out, and I'm guessing age is important because that is the first album I was obsessive about, leading me to follow a band obsessively for almost 30 years (shit). And I still love the album and have probably listened to One more than any other song (...

Re: The Important Sounds of Things Falling Apart

That is very well said..and it's an argument that's been made for a long time; I hope it gets somewhere but I'm worried it will turn into Trump and company saying that when a criminal is attacking you, the Democrats will send a social worker out to talk about feelings.
