Here's the weird thing. The general rule with voting thoughts in America usually is if its 2 candidates. With one extreme the other centrist the voters will just go with the extreme. In this case, Manchin as a repub light, against some right winger. Right wingers and independents will just vote for the full blown candidate.

My point is, he's being this way because he's trying to stay in office. The truth is, he might be hurting his chances because of his repub light routine.

About D.C statehood

If and I hope when it happens, I hope there is a resolution the the new 51 star flag can NEVER be desicrated by any colors. Let the police, or trump, or whoever, make their own flag and stop hijacking the American flag.

My prediction

I think dumbass isn't considering running in 2024. I really believe he would be belching out "I'm running again" non stop everywhere he could be heard by now.

Its now time for Schumer to create the "Democratic good faith Handshake committee". He needs to announce Manchin will head it up, and staff it with people of his choosing. He needs to get to the podium and state that Manchin is the perfect guy for the job, that he's sure Manchin will easily sway many Republicans to come to our Democratic ideas. Then thank Manchin for his optimism, and tell him to start tomorrow on finding all those easily swayed republicans!!

In other words, flip the fucking script! Do this and let Manchin personally get doors slammed in his fucking face!

A covid thought for you!

After June, every time you see another loss of life from covid there's a 90 to 95% chance it'll be a RWNJ who refused to get their vaccine.

Capital rioters

I saw on another thread mentioned that most won't get any jail time. I think that's probably fair, if it was just some moron who walked in the open door, didn't touch anything, and didn't do any harm. They should only get trespassing, but, I do think they should be put on a terrorist watch list to go along with their lighter wallets.

All the others deserve all the prison time they get!

Shooting pool

25 years ago I used to be in a pool league. I was a very good shot with several table runs to my name. During that time, I met up with a group of friends and we decided to go out and shoot pool. After seeing how good I was, one of them suggested we shoot a game holding the cue one handed. He suggested that so he could get an advantage. I still kicked his ass.

These voting restrictions are just that, ways of giving the right an advantage. I should have never left him talk me into changing the rules (even though I won) and we need to stop the right from changing the rules. If they want to start winning elections, they need to mellow out and move way toward center, NOT cheat!

I hate that "rich pay more taxes" BS.

Hannity will have you believe that, but the truth is the rich pay the most monetarily, but NOWHERE near what we pay in %. The other thing is, an individual rich guy might pay 20 times more cash than I pay in, but he makes 100 or 1000 times what I make! I wish I could get these thoughts on every billboard in the US!

An Analogy for you, a women is stranded on the highway out of gas. A rich guy pulls up with a hummer with a 100 gallon tank, he gives her 2 gallons of gas. Another normal wage guy pulls up with a tiny cheap compact car with a 10 gallon tank and gives her 1 gallon of gas....Who gave more?

Rich guy gave 2% of his gas.

other guy gave 10% of his gas.

Hannity would praise the rich guy!

Want to know how to solve all spending problems?

There are estimates of $36 trillion in American cash in offshore accounts. If these anti-american bastards could be forced to bring this money back to the American economy and have it taxed even at 10% it would be $3.6 trillion to cover a huge swath of any spending needed. 15% and we could drop the debt by a quick 2 trillion over night as well.

Moderates need to contact Putin

I think its time for the moderate repubs to contact Putin and tell him to release the tapes of him doing whatever. I think donny is reeling right now. If they could get the tapes out of Putin and release them, it would be the final nail. A lot of these RWNJ voters have daughters, and wouldn't stand for what might be exposed.
