So why aren't Biden's people running ads about the thousands of Americans who died and are still dying of COVID-19 because the Great Orange Satan really f**ked up? Or, are they and I just haven't seen one yet?

And nobody told him about the Russian bounty on American soldiers? What a surprise. ...

I've been watching the Dick Van Dyke Show series that has extras with Carl Reiner and Dick Van Dyke, talking about the series and at one point I was thinking, wow...these two guys are STILL with us, how great! 

His son Rob Reiner is 73, if you can believe it! (DVD is 94.)

I can't tell you how much this made me laugh. I mean, other countries are issuing arrest warrants for our President.
It's like the Twilight Zone Live! One has to laugh to keep from crying over the state of things.

No, but that's not saying much because I can't believe I'm 62 either.  :laugh:

Yeah, that needs a bit more notoriety:

In one of the most shameful developments of the Trump presidency, reporting has revealed that Russia had placed bounties on the heads of American soldiers, that Donald Trump knew about it months ago, and yet – in all of the time that’s passed – he did NOTHING to stop it. He refused to even ask Putin to change course. He allowed American soldiers to be targeted and killed overseas, while he had the audacity to continue using our military as a prop and salute our cadets and pretend that he’s a patriot. Even amid all of his scandals – from his campaign’s cooperation with Russians looking to help him win in 2016 to his Ukraine extortion scheme to his failed coronavirus response and everything in between – this one is particularly heinous.

But I still repeat: NOTHING he ever does or will do surprises me. He's capable of a lot worse. He must be stopped. When is enough enough?

And even that will not turn his base against him. They will not believe it happened (it's a plot by Nancy Pelosi, "Sleepy Joe" Biden, and the Democrats in the House--you know. those people who want mail-in voting to keep Republicans from getting elected), and they will believe him when he says nobody told him about it.

I cannot wait to get out of this benighted state

AUSTIN (KXAN) — In an appearance on Fox News Tuesday, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told host Laura Ingraham, “I don’t need his advice anymore,” when they were discussing the nation’s top infectious disease doctor, Anthony Fauci.

“Fauci said today that he’s concerned about states like Texas that skipped over certain things,” Patrick said in a clip from the June 30 show. “He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. We haven’t skipped over anything. The only thing I’m skipping over is listening to him.”

Patrick claimed Fauci “has been wrong every time on every issue,” but did not elaborate.
