Anyone else mildly nervous that DU may be sabotaged again like in 2016?

Those were some of the worst days I can remember, and frankly, I've pushed it deep into the back recesses of my brain and tried to forget it as best as I could. It's overwhelming to be separated from others of a similar mind in the midst of an existential shift to your paradigm.

I have great faith in everyone who manages this site, which is the best website on the planet. I'm just skeered that I may lose touch with some of my friends here if the shenanigans return. Let's stay strong together. See you on the other side.

What is House Bill #344 about?

Looks like it's abandoning the collection of intangible tax on no-interest loans made by charities for the purpose of building or repairing single-family homes. Is this to help non-profits such as Habitat for Humanity?

If so, I'd be good with it. If this is subterfuge, I'd like to know.

If he's well, he's well. Let's turn the cameras to news items, then.

Media is right back to giving Trump 24/7 coverage every day on the way to Election Day. Time to change the narrative back to his taxes and pound his sickly little ass into submission. He's fair play again, and this time we need to go for the jugular.

"I Could Stand In the Middle Of Fifth Avenue And Infect Somebody And I Wouldn't Lose Any Voters"

The Trump death cult has shape-shifted but never lost its diabolically-insane tenor.

Help us, Obi-Joe, you're our only hope.

Trump told us EXACTLY how he plans to take over the presidency for another 4 years last night

Knowing full well that he can't and won't win this election fairly and squarely, he intends to take it to the Supreme Court and allow them to usurp the power of the people and deem the irregularities in the vote to have negated the election. He intends to be INSTALLED for a second term.

He was quite clear about this. With all the attention on his disruptive behavior and his call-out to the white supremacists, this seems to have been given short shrift. In the end, it may be the news byte we are doomed to see over and over again as the death knell of our democracy. We can only hope that there are sufficient means to stop him from what he has spent a lifetime doing: exploiting the shortcomings of our judicial branch to win by fiat what he couldn't accomplish legitimately.

You know who would have leveled with the American people AND not caused mass hysteria?

Barack effing Obama, that's who.

That's called leadership. You don't feed the people bald-faced lies in an effort to avoid panic. You tell them the truth, and then you tell them how you intend to lead the country back to safety and optimal health.

You know who else would level with the American people and not cause mass hysteria?

Joe effing Biden, that's who.

My God, the machinations these people have to go through to justify their utter dearth of humanity and leadership skills.

He's spent us deeply into debt, isn't religious at all and he hates the military

Who the hell is his mythical base, then?

Haters, Conspiracy Theorists, and the easily pandered to.

Anyone care to add to the list?

If you could bring back one discontinued cereal, what would it be?

Lately, I've had a craving for a cereal that I haven't eaten in probably 50 years:

I remember this was lightly sweetened and something I could shovel into my mouth so easily that a box would magically empty in one sitting. There's was also another cereal, more like a dessert, that was only on the market for a short while, and when it disappeared from the cereal aisle, it was a traumatic experience for a prepubescent kid:

As I got older, my father expanded his breakfast repertoire beyond Shredded Wheat and Cheerios to something sweeter; I co-opted his new choice as my own new favorite:

For me, many of my childhood memories revolve around the breakfast table and Saturday morning cartoons. I'm sure I wasn't alone. What cereals do you wish would return to the shelves?

A nice story to kick off the weekend

Just got back home from my daily commute. I'm a blue dot in a sea of red here in rural northeast Georgia and am keenly aware of the issues involving the police and persons of color. I'll admit that I've never personally witnessed police brutality here, but that's not to say it doesn't happen, I just don't get out much.

Anyway, driving home, our two lane road was funneled into one, and as we inched closer I could see why: there had apparently been a minor accident and police and a tow truck were on the scene. As I slowly passed, I noticed a middle-aged AA woman speaking to a white police officer who looked to be around 60. You could see she was emotional but under control. Then, out of the blue, she approached him and gave him a hug. She backed away and he looked back at her with compassion and kindness. It was one of those moments I wished I'd had a camera, because it was sweet and impromptu and damned if I was the only person in the world at that moment that caught it.

Anyway, BLM and systemic race issues in law enforcement absolutely do exist and absolutely need to be addressed and remedied. But for one moment, I saw what I think all of us want to see: 2 human beings, one vulnerable, one with a badge, one black, one white, both displaying a humane and cooperative spirit at a time in America that desperately calls for it.

I think this is going to be a good weekend.

Maybe I need to take off this tinfoil hat I'm wearing

But would it be within the realm of possibility that Trump and Putin were scheming to gin up a skirmish in Afghanistan - right before the election - greatly enhancing Trump's ability to obtain by fiat a hold on the presidency beyond its expiration date -

and that the intelligence community, aware of the diabolical plot they were hatching, leaked this report to deflect it to the knowing eyes of the American people?

I know, I know.
