Just checked our January 2nd United flight. It still shows the direct flight. Was surprised- maybe they plan to open. It showed the 2 flights to Houston and then the flight to "Z". I hope this is the case. If it is true, can not wait.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. We can watch Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony together. How 'bout that! :devil:

If he can remember where he is at. He get's confused which State or City he is in. By the way, Kathie is having a hard time with Amy down 17 point - she looked good before the Primary where the Black Kentucky Legislator hurt her. She has a problem in that she was selected by the Democratic Senators to run because of how she almost won our House District(Trump saved Barr but could not save Blevin). There was know one else on the Democrat side to take on McConnell.

I don't care much for him either. But whatever Biden is, he isn't the racist, lying, traitorous, thieving, science-denying, con artist, grifter, sexual predator, and authoritarian fascist that The Chump is. Biden isn't responsible for inciting MASSACRES against Mexicans, but The Chump is. There seems to be a huge blind spot in your vision when it comes to The Chump, amigo.

Well said Rob, as a Canadian, and watching from a distance,"forest for the trees " I have to agree, a person can't believe a word he says, having said that we as Canadians are in the same boat but basically we can't believe a word our PM "doesn't" say because he won't answer any questions he is asked ,because if he were truthful he would be in jail.

I wonder if you disliked Biden thirty years ago when he was greasing the skids for Clarence Thomas.
Or twenty years ago when he voted for attacking Iraq.
Or ten years ago when he and Obama were "looking forward, not backward" and letting Bush and Cheney off the hook for their criminal torture regime.
And there are many more centrist-to-conservative examples I could cite. It seems like you've forgotten all the little things he's done to help out your team over the 42 years he's been in public office.

The truth is that Biden is and has always been a moderate conservative, smack-dab in the middle of mainstream political thought. It's just that the right-wing media has dishonestly portrayed him as a radical leftist and you apparently swallowed it whole. I would think you would be thrilled to support a corporate-friendly moderate like him. And I suspect you would if he had an 'R' after his name. I don't much like him but he's light-years better than an incompetent and mentally damaged thug like Trump. Do you really want four more years of this? Do you really think Biden could possibly be worse?

Biden is being pushed so far left by his minders. He doesn’t even know what’s really going on any more.

Biden knows exactly what's going on. You keep pushing the idea that's he's a drooling idiot but that's not gonna fly, especially compared to Trump. He's tacking left for the campaign but will turn hard right after the election, just as Obama did. Politicians who do that sort of thing are the rule rather than the exception, and I have no illusions that Biden's going to turn into a left-wing snowflake anytime soon. You would do well to witness his entire 42-year career to understand that. And know them by the company they keep: His first hire was Larry Summers, the hackiest of Wall St hacks, as his economic advisor. Not a good look if he intends to govern as a Progressive.

With all due respect your statement about running to the left then governing to the center makes no sense. Presidential politics uses a primary run to the left or right then a move to the center prior to the general election. And Obama ran on a platform of “hope and change” and “yes we can” which was total BS. He fooled lots of people. He turned out to be the Marxist leftist that many thought he was. The divider in chief. Not that Trump is a unifier, but at least no one is confused about what he believes in. The debates will be insightful to say the least. This week will confirm Biden being pulled to the left as he picks his VP based purely on skin color and sex, not based purely on qualifications. You have no idea the pulse of the US as we head into the election. I can’t wait.

The "Marxist leftist" crap reveals the depths of your brainwashing and hypocrisy.

With all due respect, you DON'T have the faintest clue what you're talking about, but you've been well programmed to repeat a lot of LIES, and I would appreciate it if such malarkey were not the subject of any discussion here on my website. Please don't respond until you have something to contribute about Zihuatanejo. My patience has run out with you.

It's not worth going point by point and debunking your lies though I could easily. Neither your lies nor you are worth it. You support a racist, a liar, a grifter, and a traitor to the nation using the office for personal gain like a mafia boss, a wannabe oligarch. You support a criminal miscreant president, and I don't want to hear any more political crap from you. PERIOD. There will be no more warnings. You've had enough of them and you've ignored them.

I don’t think he’s being funny. It’s real. That’s the scary part. Say what you want about Trump. Today’s executive order was really important to people struggling in the US, while Congress plays politics

I'm presuming you can't stomach Pelosi but try to give her 10 minutes of your time.
After all she probably is on your favorite TV station:

Peloton is a classic politician way past her prime. I will give her this. She keeps her caucus in line. And no Fox isn’t my favorite TV station. That would be ME Tv . I love the old shows pre internet era.

Yesterdays executive order[s] were a joke. They will only cause more confusion. I see he got his business relief in [which EVERYONE was against.]

The executive orders 4 of them all make sense, not that they will hold up to Constitutional scrutiny, but this is needed help right now. The payroll tax relief you are most likely referring to helps workers instead of slackers. What a concept.

Well, the payroll tax relief really isn't, the payments are just deferred until the end of the year and will be due then as I understand it. although they would help the currently employed, since it is in esseance a loan, I doubt that it would help much.. Making them permanent would require congress to act

All I did make was a post in flying in January and Rob came back about us meeting for the inauguration. This is the problem- people have nothing else to do but turn everything political. Most of us have our minds make up and will not change no matter the criticism coming from the people who do not feel the same way. It gets to a point, you almost do not want to post.

Yes, I replied in friendly jest. Yet, of all the posts you all could comment on, like ANY of my daily posts, this is the topic of discussion you all keep coming back to. So I figure it must be serving some curative purpose. But when I delete posts then I’m suppressing free speech, no?

Tranquilo. Borraré todo esto muy pronto.

Rob, my problem is people will get political on a non political issue. You know me, I will defend my conservative view most of the time. A lot of the comments are not worth the time and effort for me to respond to because I just make the string longer with follow ups.
