    Democrats thinking ahead? Thinking Period? Republicans may be the party of crap ideas but the Democrats have always been the party of no ideas. they stumble around in the dark and do what their feelings tell them. This entire episode with the people crying over supreme court nominations during an election year despite it happening before is because the Democrats are the ones who changed the rule to make it so you only need a simple majority in the senate to confirm for a seat instead of 60 votes. These blockheads always somehow keep forgetting that there are times when the other party has control of one or both of the houses.

    Don't tell their base that. They don't remember that far back.

    I mailed in my vote recently from Uni in the UK.

    I guess Trump was right about mail-in meddling from abroad. I'm the baddy.

    I mean it's not like the court hasn't been expanded numerous times before, or that the Dems haven't had a majority either. They could expand the court and then raise the amount of votes needed for a nominee. It's like you're not really aware of history, or thinking ahead?

    If you can secure an advantage why would you not use it?

    Do you also think that you shouldn't hit someone back because they might try to hit you again?

    Yes, because it wasn't the Democratic Obama admin that helped bring us out of the recession, or take the first steps to introduce healthcare coverage/reform. It wasn't that same admin that explicitly had plans in place for dealing with "Novel coronavirus" outbreaks , which the current republican admin failed to act on.

    It's also been reduced before.
    One of the two major political parties has had a majority in congress? Color me shocked.
    ...That can be immediately undone as soon as the republicans regain the majority, which tends to happen when the opposite party wins the presidency.
    You mean the slowest recovery for a recession since ww2.

    Obamacare? The same healthcare reform that penalized you if you didn't have healthcare (https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tip...dual-mandate-for-health-care-reform/L51gBOz8v), the same healthcare reform that actually increased premiums? (https://www.cms.gov/blog/thank-obamacare-rise-uninsured)
    Looking at the playbook the Obama admin left,

    PLaybook.png
    The U.S. Government will use all powers at its disposal to prevent, slow, or mitigate the spread of an emerging infectious disease threat by:
    1. Limiting spread of disease;
    2. Mitigating impact of illness, suffering, and death; and
    3. Sustaining critical infrastructure and key resources in the United States.
    Well from Trump at the beginning of the year talking about this virus going on in China and wanting to close off travel to China, only to be branded a racist by Democrats and led them to travel to the nearest Chinatown and hug Asians. There was the whole lock down thing if you recall, and Trump producing ventilators because people needed them to combat the virus, I'd say Trump was in step with the protocols that were listed here (The Obama administration didn't invent outbreak protocols by the way). With early projections around march being about 2 million, the 200,000 or so deaths we have now is way under original estimates and even then probably inflated.

    Morgan is just a kid that has a cursory knowledge of the things he is talking about without having actually lived through the things he is talking about. I'm sure his mommy and daddy had to deal with Obamacare not him.

    It's also been increased too.

    I'll take your word for it.

    Immediately, if they secure a large enough majority that is. Honestly, I have to hand it to you. Don't use your advantage when you have it as the other side will do the same, basically, don't strike back as the other side may retaliate. Fuck, just don't do anything ever as there may be a reaction. Maybe tell this to the Repubs at the moment? :confused:
    Yes, the worst econ crash since the great depression that was spurned on by Republican policy on deregulation.
    Have some links yourself, I guess.

    Yep, Obamacare has it's issues, but it's high prices are more complicated than is so often claimed. Republican efforts to repeal, or undermine it have contributed to increases as well. What do the Republicans have to replace Obamacare after 4 years? Next to nothing and it will stay that way as they do not have an interest.
    You mean all the actions he finally took after dismissing the situation and questioning if masks worked? Does this include when the government turned down an offer back in January from a company to fullfill mask orders and start production early? The same things he had to be pressured to accept about the situation he continually denied? With the cherry on top being that he would not only catch it himself, but was not tested before the debate when he was infected. This has been a shit show no matter what angle you look at it.
    How is it that so many right leaning countries have been completely ass blasted by the virus and moderate, or left leaning ones fair better? It's almost like there is a pattern of global incompetence emerging on one side in particular.
    Yet again,

    Your reading comprehension is dogshit.

    Masks don't work.

    Excuse me if I don't take your word for it.

    You're not a clown, you're a fucking carny.

    You do know Black Bush's entire economic recovery plan was doing the same thing he was doing when he was in office as White Obama, right?

    -Trump has previously refused to commit to peaceful transfer of power.

    -Despite evidence stating otherwise as well as states that already use it, he has insinuated that mail in voting is fraudulent in favor of Democrats.

    -To bolster this point one of his claims was that mail carriers in West Virginia are "selling the ballots".

    -Republican Mac Warner had to clarify that this was actually of 8 absentee Dem votes being tampered with and changed to Repub in some form by a postal worker. They were caught and pleaded guilty to fraud.

    -Trump opposes funding for USPS to help process votes and increase accuracy, oddly enough.

    -Says he will accept SCOTUS ruling on election.

    -He then increases SCOTUS conservative majority further, by nominating another conservative thinker who will also be the third judge that had involvement with the Gore v. Bush Florida recount, which would lead to supreme court decision that lead to Bush's victory.
