Name origin

I have a wandering thought here. Why is the White House called the White House? Is it because it’s white, or is it because it was run by a bunch of white men? Just wondering.

Donald Trump had the Chernobyl of presidencies. We will be dealing with the fallout for decades.

Wow, republican candidate Dr. Oz says that the uninsured have no right to healthcare and he’s ok with incest. What in the heck is wrong with these people? Some more good republican christians, right grandpa.

The question for Republican voters is what exactly would the Do-Nothing Republicans do on Voting Rights, Abortion, Gun control, the Economy, Infrastructure, Immigration, Social Security, Medicare and Health care policy (ACA) if put in positions of power? It`s a very scary outcome if you ask me.

“He has betrayed our national security. He has compromised our elections, and he will do so again. Is there one among you who will say ‘ENOUGH’?”

This guy you had no problem criticizing. But God forbid you criticize your cult leader.

And still not one person on the forum has the integrity to say “yeah, I was wrong.”

Someone needs to let Marco Rubio know this is more than a storage problem.

Picalow

It’s a storage problem, it was like a bad breakup with a mad girlfriend, or it was just so chaotic when he left that he just grabbed the wrong stuff.

Let me get this straight. The FBI found documents about foreign nation's nuclear capabilities at Mar-A-Lago, and he's still out their holding rallies? This is a joke, right?

Great guy you all elected.

Hey republican controlled Mississippi, what in the h*ll are you doing with tax payers money? They won’t use it for women’s health but hey that got a volleyball court.

Instead of worrying about having a competent Commander in chief you should worry abut a former faux President who fomented treason on1/6 2021, Violated the espionage act by stealing classified documents. Spoke more lies that truth. Inspired his followers to do all in their power to destroy democracy.

munchman is back, Welcome.

How is Trump not committing espionage when nuclear secrets are found at his home?

Picalow

Lock him up!

Absolutely correct aj. And the Trump appointed judge who granted him a master to delay is another puppet and she should face reprimand by the powers to be in the legal community. They should bombard her with the law.

Grandpadude, just wondering what you meant yesterday when you said “it will never happen” speaking of vote drop boxes in Texas?

aj0201@gmail.col

Oops. You said it “would never be allowed…”. What did you mean by that?

grandpadude1945@gmail.com

My mistake. (would) Should have been. (should never be allowed). I think every person no matter what color their skin is should be allowed to case a ballot. But they must be a US citizen and produce a photo identification not some random utility bill. And ever State should make State issues ID cards free or at a very reasonable cost.

aj0201@gmail.col

You don’t think drop boxes should be allowed?

Picalow

In Texas all you need is a concealed carry card, but a photo ID from any of the states universities isn’t good enough. Now ponder that for awhile then let me know why that is in Texas.

aj0201@gmail.col

Shoot (no pun intended) I don’t think you even need a conceal carry in Texas. I think they, like Missouri, have constitutional carry laws.

Picalow

That is probably the case now, I know it use to be the case due to relatives living there. They thought the law was great, even though they had two I college.

aj0201@gmail.col

So here’s the deal, grandpadude; voting boxes are legal in Texas. But weeks before the 2020 election republicans got it so that there can only be one box per county in Texas. Now, see if you can figure out why this would be considered a type of voter suppression for minorities in Texas.

grandpadude1945@gmail.com

aj I never said that. As far as I know Missouri doesn't utilize drop boxes for absentee ballots. If the election laws I okays drop boxes. Then one box per county is simply not enough. But, my question to you is how secure is these drop boxes? I'm not meaning people will deposit other people's ballots and even more than one ballot. But what would keep someone from breaking in and stealing the ballots. Now don't say only Republicans would do that. That's BS and you know it. There's dishonest people in both parties. One more question if a person can drive or get to a drop box why can't they just go to a regular post office or to a regular voting place. I can understand the need while the pandemic was going on. But I think everything should return as it was before covid. I know you most likely will disagree and that'd fine everyone is entitled to there opinions.

Picalow

Ok grandpa, I have been searching voter fraud pertaining to ballot boxes. Guess what I found, nothing. So why is it that republicans want fewer and Democrats want more. Well other then the fact that republicans want to make it harder to vote and Democrats want to make it easier, 58% of Biden’s voters used a drop off box where as 32% of trump voters used a drop off box.

aj0201@gmail.col

Ballot drop boxes were legal in Texas before 2020. Also, one box per county indeed won’t cut it. Texas’s largest county has 4,700,000 people. If it were a state it would be the 25th largest state by population. One drop box for a county with 4.7 million people. A county where 79% of the population is either Hispanic, Black or Asian. Meanwhile most Texas counties are about 35,000 people or less and the majority of those counties are about 70% White give or take. Texas’s smallest county has about 64 people. One ballot box for 64. One ballot box for 4.7 million.

See why it’s considered voter suppression of minorities?

Even allowing felons to vote after probation and prime is done with them is suppression. Those people are working tax payers. They should be voting on how those taxes get used.

Picalow

This year a new law changed ballot box access from many in a county and available 24 hrs a day to one per county, inside voting facilities and available only from 9 am to 5 pm. Poor uninformed grandpa.

Picalow

Hating winners, so six bankruptcies, three marriages, twice impeached, lost the popular vote in both elections, told 30,537 lies, and is the subject of six current investigations. This folks is what republicans call a winner.

munchman

You must be a Union Carpenter because you hit that nail squarely on the head. Hating winners is just another example of a bamboozled loser, blinded to realty.

Hey! At least Trump didn’t wear a tan suit.

harrah12860@gmail.com

Hopefully he fits into an orange suit real soon..

Excellent summary Picalow of a loser. And if one follows Trump who is a racist, a liar, a cheater, obstructionists, a white supremacist --- then that makes a follower the same and or complicit. Trump is no winner, he is a whiner on top of everything else.
