    Yep. With Big Tech/media and the democrats being in collusion with one another is one of the most dangerous things I've seen in my lifetime and a dangerous threat to democracy.

    Like the bamboo in the ballots? The lab in some ninja’s garage? The Kraken that Powell and Wood are running from?

    The threat to democracy is how close we are to having multiple gerrymandered state houses throwing out the votes of the citizenry.

    Election fraud will be the next thing that will be proven to be correct. ;)

    The fact they you are okay with the censoring of your political opponents doesn't speak well of you, Bubba. I hope you come to your senses.

    You know it is not "nice" to use a poster's own link to point out the lie in the poster's message.
    Facts never matter to people like that,

    I have pretty much stopped following most news. The Russian collusion non-sense for 3.5 years showed that most "news" is just corporate propaganda. It's fed to us for a purpose.

    The biggest story of the past year should be how the COVID virus was leaked from the Wuhan lab. Yet, it's barely even covered now. Wonder why.....

    I sit corrected. I was clearly too focused on the names of the leaders and working concurrently.

    Gosh, OUBubba - maybe I've been wrong all these years. I thought this country was the United States of America - and the Constitution specifically limits the power of the federal government (the Tenth Amendment). Powers not specifically given to the federal government are reserved to the states and the people - and that would include determining how to elect and send Representatives and Senators to Congress. Guess I'll have to dig out my copy of the Constitution of the United States of America and read it again - my memory is getting hazy as I get older.

    Early yesterday, watched CNBC market report which predicted a big sell off due to the upcoming negative job and inflation reports.

    CNN had a caption running beside the falling ticker saying it was due to fears of the new Covid variant.

    Amazing how they questioned every investor out there to be able to report that fact.

    Yeah, dig it out. My point is that the right is writing clauses into these election bills that will allow the state house to change the vote of the people on the whiff of a turd as opposed to actually stepping in said turd. If the left were doing it you'd be raising all kinds of husker hell.

    Except that is not what is actually occurring. You really need to spend some time READING the statutes and proposed pieces of legislation instead of blindly believing what your Avenatti-loving talking heads are telling you to think...

    mb227, nothing will work with OUBubba and SeattleHusker they are true believers in the Cathedral. To think or speak outside of its holy dictates will get them excommunicated and sent to secular hell. They can't chance it.

    If Avenatti is the hero one second, then they have to sing of his virtues. If he is the next second in jail, they can't say they were wrong. The Cathedral spake it thus. The only righteous response is to ignore Avenatti's fall from grace and act like he never existed.

    By the way, that is what happened in the USSR too. Those who were purged were removed from history. They were erased from all documents including pictures. They simply never existed once they became unclean.

    OUBubba, I'm raising the BS flag on you on this one - I'm willing to bet that the state legislatures controlled by Democrats (such as the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia, not to mention the New England states) draw districts to suit their preferences - as the Constitution allows. Surely even an Osoner can grasp that fact. :)

    Just out of curiosity, did Husker or Switzer ever sing of the virtues of Avenatti? Switzer may have, because he was hot and bothered about the Stormy Daniels fiasco, but I don't recall SH doing anything like that. And I don't remember any Avenatti love from Switzer either, but I'm less certain of it. Porn stars and sleazy lawyers start looking good when you live in Oklahoma.

    That said, diminishing the whole thing over a "porn star" and a "sleazy lawyer" spackles over the fact the GOP nominee oversaw his attorney who paid the sleazy lawyer out of campaign funds (eventually) to keep the porn star quiet about the sex that she had with the nominee while his third wife was recovering from giving birth to his 5th child.

    Avenatti is a turd. Trump still committed acts that were historically disqualifying with Stormy and he seemingly committed illegal acts in covering it up.

    Whatever was uncovered is legitimate to an investigation. But I think what Deez is referring to is how Liberals flock en masse with their emotionally charged neediness to ANYONE who attacks Trump.

    That's TDS.

    Do you have an example of a state that has rewritten laws that allow overturning a legitimate vote of the people "on the whiff of a turd"?

    For the record it was clear that Avenatti was a sleaze from his very first PC. Somewhere I posted his business history in which he'd declared bankruptcy, taken money from business partners, etc. Essentially he was the type of lawyer Trump wishes he had on his payroll which made all the back and forth between Avenatti and Trump so entertaining.

    Found a few posts I made about Avenatti for reference:

    I don't like it and would find it disqualifying if I made the rules, but that went out the window when we decided it was ok to get blown by the staff under the desk and lie to a grand jury to cover it up and cheat in a civil trial. That's worse.

    Basically covering up a sleazy sexual encounter is ok. It's even ok to break the law and try to financially harm other people to do it. Would we draw the line with physically harming others to do it? Maybe. We haven't had to deal with that yet. But it a Democrat is doing it, I'm sure you'll find a way to rationalize it.
