neb: .It's OK, it wasn't a female fly.

 

Mother was in the room - she came up onto the stage at the end, without a mask.

 

Of course she had to be there, since he was in the same room as Kamala at the same time ;)

Sure I'd have liked to see a Bernie (or someone else) rather than Biden, but it's too soon.

 

 

We'll never know if Bernie could bet Trump, but the answer is obvious to me and anyone with a brain

 

When the Democrats wonder how they are neck and neck with a gameshow reality TV star, and why people don't vote, its because they don't offer them anything.

 

Bernie campaign in March 10,000 turnout in Ann Arbor, MI

 

Bernie campaign for Biden in October:

Mikes traditional religious values, means he calls his wife Karen, Mother.

 

He also won't be in the room alone with another women at the same time.

 

His boss President Donald Trump has noted his wingman "has one hell of a good marriage going."

"In a day when reckless extramarital sexual activity is manifesting itself in our staggering rates of illegitimacy and divorce, now more than ever, America needs to be able to look to her First Family as role models of all that we have been and can be again."

 

'''

 

"If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous.

 

 

Sermons from Mike Pence.  

 

Hypocrite, Liar, and Vice President of the USA.  Flies are attracted to sh*t.

Watching his latest video clip with him talking up his 'wonder drug' yesterday, his hair was perfect, his orangeness freshly touched up - then it dawned on me, he would have instructed hairstylists and orange paint people to work right up next to his head all the time while he is breathing out Covid.

Yet another set of mental gymnastics I could never get my head around. Mike Pence is not a 'traditional religious' type. He's a Mormon; Mormonism is universally recognised as, well, heretical would be the correct word I guess, by mainstream Christianity just like the JWs or the Moonies. Cult would also do. They're way off the reservation even by comparison with the split between Roman Catholics (who pray to Mary) vs. Protestants (who don't). Magic underpants and all.

 

I guess as with everything else it comes down to the fact he hates the gays and the baby killers.

 

 

 

EDIT: Apparently I was wrong about the Mormonism.

AFAIK Pence isn't a Mormon.  He identifies as Catholic / Evangelical.

 

(Note the Vatican's constant indirect criticism of the POTUS, and direct snubbing of US officials like Pompeo being declined a meeting he'd requested with Vatican officials)

 

 

“I frankly hold Dick Cheney in really high regard in his role as vice president and as an American,”

 

Pence said that, like Cheney, he hoped to be “a very active vice president.”

 

 

Cheney should have been prosecuted as a war criminal.  Pence chooses evil role models.

This is what happens when idiots listen to right-wing nutters shouting "Is the real Michigan ready to take Michigan back"?

 

"FBI busts militia 'plot' to abduct Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer"

 

 

"Several members talked about murdering 'tyrants' or 'taking' a sitting governor," the charging document states. In one video, a suspect denounced the state's role in deciding when to reopen gyms during the coronavirus lockdown.

 

Those arrested include Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, Brandon Casert and Ty Garbin, whose home was raided by authorities on Wednesday.

 

The group wished to gather about "200 men" to storm the capitol building and take hostages, including the governor. They hoped to enact their plan before the November presidential election. If that failed, they planned to attack the governor at her home, officials say.

Hmmm, interesting. Did some more Googling and it appears you are correct. Now I wonder where I got that impression from ... OTOH "evangelical Catholic" is a weird combination.

This is a photo from about 6 months ago.  "Protestors" or terrorists with semi automatic weapons on the steps of the State Capitol building.

 

Note that the "Michigan Freedom Fund" receives most of its funding from Betsy Devos, Trump's Secretary of Education.

The point is white supremacist right-wing extremists are the terrorists America needs to worry about.

 

Antifa is not a terror organisation. Anyone that is anti anti-fascists is just a fascist. Trump and everyone down on his administration included.

People forget that Pence became such an unflappable BSing Politician, because he used to be a right wing radio talk show host

The point is just imagine what these neanderthals are going to do when Trump loses.

FTFY - but with a comment that if Trump wins, the consequences will be even worse.
