Who broke CNN?

The website is displaying stuff from months ago as latest breaking. Anyone else seeing that?

I just selected Biden and it went from 18% to 19%. You're welcome. lol

Iím going to miss you, Pete.

What's wrong with me? (Not a dramatic thread)

Iíve always known this about myself, but recently, my kids have pressed for an answer and I really donít know.

What is my favorite color? I donít have one.

Favorite movie? I like many movies but no favorite.

Favorite food? I canít settle on just one.

Favorite song? Thereís many good songs.

Favorite band? Meh.

So, you get the idea. Itís not like Iím indecisive when it comes to decision making. I can make a choice. I guess I just weigh the choices differently or by a different metric? Anyways, I thought I would just put this out there and see what people thought.

Bloomberg was worth $54.1B in November. Now it's $61.5B

Is he making money off of running for President or is $7B a normal return on investment after a few months? Honestly, Iím asking. I donít know. That amount of money is out of my level of expertise.

A few other questions.

He supported stop and frisk, even defending it after he left office. He finally backtracked in November and apologized. What changed?

Michael Bloomberg said; ďIve never supported raising the minimum wageĒ. In December, he backtracked and now supports a $15 minimum wage. What changed?


He is buying up all the ad time he can and churning out commercial after commercial that paints him in the perfect light. He hasnít debated with any of the other candidates. Has he even held a town hall or rally or anything where people can submit questions to him?

He literally is buying this election. He is even paying Instagram influencers to say nice things about him. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/feb/07/mike-bloomberg-2020-campaign-instagram-influencers


He also said this during an interview in September 2018.
ďItís impossible to conceive that I could run as a Republican ó things like choice, so many of the issues, Iím just way away from where the Republican Party is today,Ē Mr. Bloomberg said. ďThatís not to say Iím with the Democratic Party on everything, but I donít see how you could possibly run as a Republican. So if you ran, yeah, youíd have to run as a Democrat.Ē

So is the party just a thing of convenience for him to met his end goals?


Am I the only one that has alarm bells going off in my head over this guy? Our candidates, our Democratic candidates are being squeezed out because of him. They canít outspend him. No way in hell can they drop the amount of money he is going to. All our candidates have is the donations we send and the support we give. Our candidates answer to us or risk losing it all. Who is Bloomberg accountable to?

To those who think Pete's Campaign was involved with Shadow Inc.

To those who think Peteís Campaign was involved with Shadow Inc, the company that created the vote reporting app; they were.

They paid $42,500 to them in July for Text Messaging software. But hereís the rub. They werenít the only ones.

ďButtigiegís campaign paid $42,500 to Shadow Inc. for text messaging software in July. Other Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and the Texas Democratic Party, have contracted with Shadow for similar services, federal campaign finance data show.

The Buttigieg campaign did not help develop the app used in Iowa, a campaign spokesman confirmed Tuesday to the AP.Ē

Just a shout out to my boy, Pete!

No matter what, we got youíre back till you win or decide to support another candidate. But for tonight, things are looking good for you.

Coronavirus claims 15 more lives in China; first two cases reported in Europe

BEIJING ó France confirmed two cases of coronavirus Friday, marking the first confirmed diagnoses in Europe, as China expanded its efforts to control its outbreak and announced 15 new deaths. A second case of coronavirus was also confirmed Friday in the United States.

There are more than 1,000 confirmed cases of infection, and at least 41 people have died. A total of 8,420 people are reported to be under observation.

A young, previously healthy man died in Wuhan, raising concerns about the deadliness of the virus. Until now, the vast majority of victims have been older than 60 with preexisting conditions.

Edit to add: France has just revised confirmed cases to 3 from 2.

Honest question about Bernie Sanders

Itís open to anybody but would love to get his supporters feedback.

If Bernie Sanders wins the nomination, will he run as a Democrat?

Itís that simple. In the past, he ran in the Democratic primaries, won, and then rejected the nomination so he could continue on as an independent without fear of being challenged from the left. Is that what he is planning to do here?


You want me to accept Bernie and support him. Can you guarantee me this wonít happen if I do?

An observation.

Currently, in the GD forum, there are over a half dozen threads about the gun thing in Virginia and only two about MLK. This is what they wanted. To take away from MLK and the struggle for justice and equal rights he fought for. Iím not saying to ignore the rally in Virginia, just donít let it overshadow what today is truly about.

I found Trumps playbook!

Iíve had a game called Plague Inc. for several years now. Since I currently have the flu, I figured, letís infect the world.

When I logged into the game, I noticed it has a new play option. Fake News.

You start off picking a subject you want to start fake news on, pick a group to blame it on, and choose a reason you want to do this. For example, Trumpanzee story was started by politicians about climate change blaming scientists, for political and personal fame.

As I played through one game, I noticed several options for helping me spread my fake info and attacking those who tried to stop it. Some of these options include:

Calling unfavorable news fake
Tweeting out attacks against people who disagree
Accusing fact checkers of being biased
Angrily claiming itís a witch hunt
Digging up dirt on fact checkers
Creating fake fact checker companies to corroborate your story
Blaming the news media
Encouraging your supporters to openly attack opposition so they be afraid to challenge you
Setting up websites, forums, and online advertising to help spread your story
Purchasing partial ownership in a news outlet
And so much more!




Now I canít be for certain, but I believe we have found the source of Trumpís ideas to help him take over the world. Given, my version is just a game with a global map, but Trumpís map is very real and the choices heís making is affecting us all. Who will win?
