    They've repeatedly claimed that going to a campaign website or doing a basic web search for news articles on a candidate's policy positions is asking too much of them, and that the Biden campaign should seek them out to inform them of every single policy position they have.

    Which is dishonest, entitled horse shit. That's not how anything works, anywhere. Nobody owes anyone a damned thing. If you don't inform yourself, that's your fault.

    I know I'm speaking to the choir on that, but sometimes, as obvious as it may be, the truth needs to be laid out clearly.

    Real fucking shame a certain Socialist based their whole primary strategy on elevating slacktivism. Boosting these a-holes with podcast appearances and hiring them to run his campaign.
    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    I've mentioned this before, but in highest echelons of governance, where risk is not an option, you don't judge people by what they promise, but you judge them by their past deeds. When we apply that to Biden then my list stands as the most objectively measurable truth we have.

    But hey, maybe Biden will prove me wrong once he is in office. I'd be all the more glad for it if he does.

    This -must- be projection, surely. After all the riot-cringe we've seen over the past few months of upper class Democratic Party youths trying to appropriate the #BLM protests just so they could go smashing small middle class stores?

    All you're describing, here, is your own personal paranoia and misanthropy.

    Politicians can and do follow through on campaign promises all the time.

    But regardless; you weren't even talking about the efficacy of outcomes, you were lying about whether Biden had any position on those issues at all. Just straight-up, bald-faced lying, when anyone who even bothers to glance at Biden's platform can see that you're lying.

    And now that you've been called out, you're trying to move goalposts, and pretend you didn't get caught out. That's just more dishonesty.

    Seriously. They need to go after the state party hard on this. People need to be in jail.

    Republicans constantly talk about the seriousness of voter fraud, they should appreciate the desire for swift and serious consequences for anyone engaging in that behavior. Including themselves.

    Useless non-Americans with shitty opinions on civic engagement in United States elections aside, Lindsay Graham is threating me with a good time if people go out and vote Democrat.

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham painted a grim picture for Republicans if they lose control of the White House and Senate next month.

    Graham said he believes Democrats would extensively change the rules when it comes to nominating appointees to the Supreme Court and would also impose other changes to the makeup of the country that would help them stay in power.

    "If we lose the House, the Senate, and the White House, they’re going to change the rules of the Senate, Maria, so you only need a majority," Graham told Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo. "Anything coming out of the House goes to the Senate. They’re going to expand the Court from nine to whatever number they need to make it liberal. They’re going to abolish the Electoral College, which means New York and California pick our president. They're going to change America."

    Several election forecasters suggest Republicans are not only at major risk of losing their Senate majority but that Democrats may even pick up more seats in the House, which they already control.

    "We must win this election, keep the Senate because if they win, it's not going to be about a healthcare debate — they’re going to structurally change the country so it’ll be hard for a Republican to get elected president," Graham said. "They’re going to make D.C. a state, altering the balance of power in the United States Senate. The parade of horribles will come if we lose the House, the Senate, and the White House. It’s unbelievable."

    I had become too accustomed to the pseudo-Left new style, whereby if your opponent thought he had identified your lowest possible motive, he was quite certain that he had isolated the only real one. This vulgar method, which is now the norm and the standard in much non-Left journalism as well, is designed to have the effect of making any noisy moron into a master analyst.

    If they don't say X, you complain, if they say X, you complain that they can't be believed.

    They should turn Graham's statement into a political ad, could get Joe a few more votes with that.

    His comment that everyone is welcomed, as long as they are conservative, would be a good one as well.

    I'm honestly a little flabbergasted that after the complete shitshow of the last 4 years where the Republicans in power shat all over every regulation, law, responsibility, expectation, etc... they were supposed to adhere to, and then are now surprised there are people who want to update or change the rules to try and help ensure shit like that doesn't happen again.

    They can't really be this stupid, dense or incompetent can they? I'm hoping it's just an "act" like one of those cheesy "OH MY! how did THAT get there!?" gift giving things where everyone involved knows good and well how that shit got there....

    When judging Biden and Trump by their passed deeds, you see no difference? You see no problem with a billionaire oligarch, pushing fascism, being in power?

    REMEMBER THAT BIG DEAL IN WISCONSIN TRUMP AND FORMER GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER BRAGGED ABOUT THAT WOULD BRING THOUSANDS OF JOBS AND BILLIONS IN INVESTMENT?

    https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...y-deal-is-off/

    The state of Wisconsin was supposed to provide Foxconn with $3 billion in subsidies over the next few years to support the construction of a massive LCD display factory in the state. The deal was negotiated in 2017 by Gov. Scott Walker and announced by Donald Trump at a White House event. It was part of Trump's strategy to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States.

    In a Monday letter, the state informed Foxconn that the company wouldn't get the first installment of the $3 billion because Foxconn wasn't holding up its end of the deal. Under Foxconn's 2017 agreement with the state, Foxconn would be eligible for the first round of subsidies if it hired at least 520 full-time employees to work on the LCD panel factory by the end of 2019. Foxconn claimed that it had cleared this bar by hiring 550 employees in the state. But Wisconsin found that Foxconn had only 281 employees who counted toward the requirement.

    Foxconn was supposed to spend $3.3 billion on the project by the end of 2019. Instead, Foxconn had only spent around $300 million by the end of the year.

    Foxconn was supposed to build an LCD panel factory based on the industry's new Generation 10.5 standard. This standard uses enormous sheets of "mother glass"—roughly 10 feet (3 meters) square—to provide LCD panels for large televisions. Each glass sheet is typically cut into several displays. The factory was expected to cost $10 billion to build and eventually employ 13,000 workers in Wisconsin. The state now says that Foxconn won't come anywhere close to meeting those targets.
    Promises made, promises broken. As literally everybody said would happen based off of Foxconn's prior history.

    Don't re-elect these grifters giving away our tax dollars to multi-billion dollar corporations that have a history of backing out of deals.

    If Trump can't learn anything after being hospitalised, or from the fact Herman Cain straight up died, none of them are going to learn a damn thing. You're basically at peak levels of anti-intelligence and ignoring those pesky experts. Something the Republicans seem to have been working towards for quite a while.
