I wish it was less political but will throw my 2 cents in depending on the subject matter. One mentioned they knew readers that stopped following the Board because of the politics.

I have been surprised receiving them. A few are Conservative and are afraid to Post for they don't want to be attacked because some of the Post are very vicious. Their complaint was how vicious some of the rebuttal of the views are- they have all been complementary even though they may not agree with my Post. Trump has brought out the worst on both sides- he will defeat Biden and his VP nominee once they start hitting her on sleeping her way to the top starting with her time with the Mayor of SF and him putting her on the Political Boards. Sorry, I had to end my Post very Political.

Your comments are a bit stronger than I like to see here, but I understand the emotion. I've met Paul and his lovely Democrat wife. You'd never even know he was a Chump supporter if the subject of politics wasn't brought up. He's a very decent laid-back and relaxed unassuming guy living in a beautiful hidden little gem of a town way off the beaten path in my birth state of Kentucky. A state that should not be discarded based on stereotypes. I think if you met Paul at La Perla or someplace local you would find him quite agreeable and likeable as I do.

Thanks for the comment. I get tired of the constant against attacks against Trump and his supporters. I wanted to see what happens when an attack against a liberal is made. What I said was the truth- just got the timeline wrong when she was appointed to the different Boards- just knew he appointed her to them. The race that came in was the mayor who was black- I could not remember his last name- just his first. When I see Political Posts, I just have to comment sometime. I would rather see less Political Post, but at this time very little is going on. Just wish some of the people who makes Post would not be so nasty when they don't agree. Oh by the way, Kathie is giving her all on Amy's Campaign- she's a little upset because I won't let her put a Amy yard sign in our yard- told her I would burn it when Amy was running for the House 2 years ago so she puts in in a neighbors yard..

You know me well enough that I try to keep it civil, although sometimes I have to take a few deep breaths.

As for Kamala Harris, Biden's choice of her is not going to influence any conservatives who aren't already contemptuous of him and already committed to Trump. So they won't lose any votes there. And she'll greatly energize Democrats, so she'll be a net plus for that ticket. She's already working the swing states more than Hilary did, one of Hilary's biggest mistakes.

I haven't yet made any predictions about the election on this board, but I'll say this: There is no path to victory for Trump unless he cheats, and probably massively. He's already doing that, and admitting it. My question is: Can you support Trump when he is openly trying to steal the election? Can you support someone who has so much contempt for democracy?

The exact same thought crossed my mind. How can anyone support him for what he's done and continues doing? His political career should've been over when he made fun of a deformed handicapped reporter. It means his supporters have more selfish priorities when they can ignore things like that, like inciting racist violence, like profiting from the Office of the President, like telling your supposed enemy when and what you are going to attack with your, what was it, 49 million-dollar cruise missiles, and hundreds of other unforgivable things no decent person with moral and ethical values would ever support. He's a misogynist racist conman scammer, and he's ruining the nation, yet his supporters turn a blind eye and claim it was ruined by Obama, of all things. It's a circle of psychobabble from within a bubble that suggests what mass hysteria among meth heads must look like.

I don't think I entirely agree. I think people like Paul, maybe 5% of the electorate, are probably good people who have lost their way in the Fox News fetid swamp. They are so embedded in the conservative media bubble and so invested in the conservative home team that it becomes unthinkable to vote for the other side, the liberal "enemy", no matter how hideous their Glorious Leader may be. So they always have to prove that they're good team players. It's in their DNA. It's how the Republican Party has branded their cult over the last forty years.

Good question.
IF there were verifiable and widespread systemic voter fraud;
and IF every eligible voter was provided a free Voter ID,
then I would support it. But neither of those two IF's are - or would be - remotely true. So this is a solution in search of a problem. Republicans aren't so dumb that they don't know that. So why are they pushing it so hard? There can be only one answer and that is voter suppression, which I am against.
And BTW, we've had voter ID for over two hundred years. It's called a signature. And it's worked quite well.

I'm against voter suppression also. I want fair and legitimate elections.
BTW....in Minnesota a few years back, voter ID was on the ballot. If it would have passed, each resident would have been provided a free ID if needed. The Democrats were still against it.

Just wondering, if Canada or Mexico require ID to vote?

Yes. It’s free and easy to acquire and it is often the ONLY OFFICIAL ID many Mexicans ever have or need to show. Not the same circumstances as the USA by any measuring stick. You are pretending to want to fix something that isn’t broken because it is a GOP talking point in their endless endeavors to disenfranchise voters likely not to vote Republican.

It has ZERO ZIP NADA to do with making voting easier or less fraudulent because study after study keeps finding that voter fraud isn't an issue, but voter suppression is, and that's how Republicans win elections when they are the minority. Now they're stacking the courts after denying President Obama his Supreme Court nominee based on RACISM ad nothing else.

Ummm. no. Note Rob's statement above, especially the part where he said not all Republicans are racists, but racists are welcome in the party. Racial divide-and-conquer has been a big part of Republican politics going all the way back to Nixon's Southern Strategy. It's how Republicans have made their bones ever since. They can't use blatant racist rhetoric anymore. So they use code words and dog whistles, winks and nods, to indicate to all the Bubbas and Cooters out there that they'd be welcomed with open arms. Lee Atwater, Bush's campaign manager in 1988, said precisely that before he died.

Yes, I grew up in the South, and no sooner did the Civil Rights Act get passed when along came Tricky Dick fanning the flames of racism to garner votes from the Dixiecrats and other racists fleeing the Democratic Party, which at that time was the party of the Civil Rights Movement. All over the South I could "fit in" and hear racists speak freely. When Reagan won it got worse, and basically that's where the straw broke the camel's back to bring us to where we are today. Since Ike there haven't been any truly decent Republican presidents, though perhaps Ford was the most benign. Not even George H.W. Bush who ran the blatantly racist Wllly Horton ads during his campaign. But what they've done to support The Chump now classifies them as traitors to the Constitution and the nation, and I believe they should lose their Party status and be designated a subversive organization. Especially after the Impeachment when they showed their true criminal colors.

No, U.S. politics is not relevant. Most of the world sees U.S. politics as more corrupt than ever because of The Chump and people like you who enable him at the price of the nation. And most of the world barely mentions the upcoming election because since War Criminal Bush the USA has made it clear its democratic principles take a back seat to corruption.

While there may still be decent Republicans, hardly anyone has seen one except for Mitt Romney marching with Black Lives Matter like ANY decent human being should be doing or at least supporting.

In the Primary, it was brought out about her and the Mayor of SF and their affair with him appointing her to the different Boards. The candidate from Hawaii really tore into her at one of the debates after her episode with Biden- Harris had no come back when she was torn into. The rumor now is, they are going after her for many feel Biden won't last 4 years and people do not want her to move up. Just wait, it is going to get down and nasty on both sides.

I knew as soon as she was named there would be those who said she only got it because she is a woman, that she slept her way up (and your dear rapist/racist never had sex?), that it is because she is black. I just hoped that all my Zihua board friends wouldn't sink that low.
Can't you all look at her positive attributes/accomplishments/experiences without tearing her down because she is a black woman? If not, you have a really sick attitude towards women, and maybe you should stop with your nonsensical, non-factual accusations. Have you, in person, seen her in bed with the mayor or anybody else? Give me a list of every man you know and have proof that she slept with, and what tangible advantage that brought to her or keep your defamatory, libelous swill out of it.
Do you really believe all the dung you hear? Are you incapable of thinking on your own and developing you own opinion based on fact and knowledge? or are you content to "see what you want to see, hear what you want to hear" (Thanks to Harry Nilsson)? You seem to regurgitate every lie that jackass tells, and it makes you look as ridiculous and vile as he is.
What do you really think the rest of the world thinks of the US now? You think some of the other powers vying to be top dog are going to ignore what is clearly a broken state full of fools? Do you really think all your minorities that are being abused by this toad are going to stand up and fight to defend him? You're going be learning Chinese & Russian if that giant yellow toad gets reelected. They will swoop in to take advantage of a clearly very messed up country that is preoccupied with fighting with each other, dumping and crapping on each other, making life miserable for each other.
I don't often comment on your US politics because I recognize the futility of dealing with a citizenry continues to allow their country to be dragged thru the mud to the dark side, while smiling and telling the rest of the world what a great country you are. Just a big joke that turns out to be on you.

I could go on & on about the state of Canadian politics but no one on this board cares and it is supposed to be about Zihua. If you are feeling discontent with your government, start writing letters. As one retired politician told me, an MP or minister can ignore a handful of letters, but not when they arrive in the hundreds. Get out and encourage your like minded buddies to write letters also. But please, don't tell me to look in my own back yard. I know about the corruption Canada was built on because I study it, and how it continues today, but I have no need to bring it up here!

Do you really need to follow up on my posts like some kind of troll? I responded to a post about US politics. If you don't care for my posts, just don't open or read them.

Hey kidlets, think you two could ease up and not scatter hostility all over my Message Board? That would be nice. If you're as intelligent as you believe you'll forgive poor Islandgirl and the rest of us for our defects and deficiencies. You'll also earn some good karma Brownie points. ;-)

With all due respect Rob , my comments were never hostile, just questioning the comments of another Canadian on this board.
But thank you for your patronizing response. I understand this is your website and you pick and choose who you decide to support and who you decide to chastize.
You're quite a hypocrite.

Biden was forced into picking a women of color. A strategic blunder of epic proportions for the Dems. If only he had said from the beginning “ I’ll pick the most qualified and best candidate regardless of their gender or color, then picked Harris, a women of color. That would have been a good move. They got it backwards and they will pay a political price.

The problem with Harris is that she appears to be a phony and people picked up on that in the primary. That’s most likely why she only got 2% of the vote and folded her candidacy. Bass would have been a better choice or the mayor from Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms. They are both African Americans unlike Harris who is Jamaican/Indian/Asian. Blacks would have been more motivated to support either of them. Plus they were better qualified. Harris is a political social climber, but luckily For her, in Obama’s orbit. He’s the one at the controls for the Democrats for anyone paying attention.

If I didn’t respond in a timely manner to you posts it’s because I have a lot going on with my work and I am only able to occasionally participate on this board. Don’t take my inconsistnt response as anything other than that. I’m not a troll. I just have a different political philosophy to most people on this board. However, I won’t dive into personal insults and the like. I’m good with political disagreements unlike many here that take politics way too seriously. It’s about impossible to have a civil discussion, the emotional and attack oriented response to anything a conservative posts here is kind of sad to be honest. I like to consider viewpoints different from my own, but you won’t get any reciprocation here on this board. It’s an echo chamber with a couple of exceptions.

You strike me as being a relatively intelligent fellow, but you sure have a mental block when it comes to Trump and his cronies. I can only attribute that to the fact that your company is doing well under his regime. RV's and boats are flying off the shelf in Canada too. If it's all about the money, then I guess you're good to go. But, most of us understand that it's not. This is the same mentality that has made your country one of the worst in it's response to the pandemic. Most people don't give a rat's ass about their fellow countrymen and are only concerned with the almighty dollar. There may come a time when you will regret this.

In the Primary, it was brought out about her and the Mayor of SF and their affair with him appointing her to the different Boards. The candidate from Hawaii really tore into her at one of the debates after her episode with Biden- Harris had no come back when she was torn into. The rumor now is, they are going after her for many feel Biden won't last 4 years and people do not want her to move up. Just wait, it is going to get down and nasty on both sides. I love reading the gossip for much of it is true. This Board is going to light up like firecrackers.

When Willie Brown was a State Assemblyman he appointed her to a couple of state boards. Not mayor of SF - facts Paul. They were dating at the time. Back then Willie had been separated from his wife for quite a while. The big joke in SF was that Willie would show up at parties with his wife on one arm and his current girlfriend on the other as their were many. Maybe at bit too progressive for your Ohio
Valley upbringing.

That's why a lot of people would wish the Board would get out of the political BS because no one will change their view by attacks on the Board. I know, with what's going on with the epidemic there is not much other than Politics- the rebuttal's do not have to be harsh with their attacks.

I wonder if it's a coincidence that most of those complaining about politics intruding on what they see as the Board's purpose just happen to be, in the main, conservative, right-leaning or outright Trump enablers.

No, BLM is not supporting looting and calling it "reparations". That is part of the BS propaganda being shat out by The Chump and his white supremacist base. While there are of course a minority who prey on chaos for their own purposes, there are professionals using psy-ops to foment and create an image of violence that dilutes the message of BLM. I suspect Betsy DeVos' brother of being behind much of the looting and violence being instigated so that instead of focusing on the tens of MILLIONS of peaceful protesters, the media will show mostly the violence. That's how opinions are swayed in a nation of lazy self-centered dumbed down naïveté. It's almost too easy to resist if you're The Chump seeking reelection. Hell, I can't believe Lou Dobbs is still allowed on the air to foment his unabashed racist hatred.

Again, the actual EVIDENCE points to extremists inspired by The Chump. BLM is not interested in looting or otherwise hurting their cause in spite of what conservatives and Chumplets say.

You keep wanting to have arguments you can't win here because you keep resorting to fantasy notions that simply have no basis in truth. You begin from a position of bullsh¡t and it only keeps getting worse. Most of this discussion has once again seen you fertilize it with your crap, and i would really not like to see any more such crap posted here.

I got my wish: I stirred up a hornet's nest'. I love pulling the chain on the Liberals who try to shut out views other than their own. Just like a lot of the college campus where the students do not want to hear another view that may be different than theirs. Our society is based on exchange of ideas- all views should be able to be heard with out name calling. Oh by the way, I don't just look at who is going to be elected President but the policies and people that will be brought in. Because of ideas, in most cases I have liked the Judges Trump nominated and McConnell got through thanks to Harry Reid changing the system to get Obama's nominee's through (he was told it would happen if the Democrats lost the Senate).

:megusta: ....which raises another issue: whether it is possible to "respect" someone who holds political views that one considers to be not just unpalatable, but abhorrent, or who supports and enables politicians one finds repulsive. Who could continue to respect and befriend anyone who believed in anything that QAnon espouses? How can there possibly be "a fair exchange of ideas" with Trump supporters/enablers?

You are like her in that your hatred for Trump closes your eyes to other points of view(as well as some of the Board)- if you remove me from the Board so be it. I will still monitor the Board hoping to find some news about "Z" & "I". I read Conservative newspapers with some hating Trump because he destroyed the Republican establishment that ran the Party into the ground and others that like his policies but not his verbiage and that is where I stand. Now with the major Police Unions coming out for Trump it is going to be interesting how many voters change their thinking because of the riots that have destroyed small business owners lively hood- you know they will be for Trump.The NY Democrats are upset because of the largest NYC Police Union Friday came out for Trump. It looks like in NYC some of the Districts that went Democrat in 2018 may go Republican because of the destruction in NYC.

Again, instead of even facing FACTS, you dismiss them. Anyone can see your psychological defense mechanism working instead of the critical logic-based process of a rational person. You keep making the fatal errors of assuming I am something I’m not and that I get my cues and info from someplace I don’t. And you try to deny reality itself. That’s why the entire rational world looks at you and all Chump supporters as cult followers, like Jim Jones and Charlie Manson had, but with traits that also make clear how good and otherwise decent Germans could become the Nazi monsters they were.

Running away from truth does not make it go away nor change your role in the evil you support.

Wishing you a speedy epiphany.
