    I'm sorry Republicans, but your endless Hunter Biden lectures aren't moving the political needle. Voters are more concerned with the 800 - 1000 Americans dying everyday from COVID 19, their small businesses going bust they spent years building, and many who are facing the very real possibility of enduring this winter while living in their cars. Keep the lectures up if it makes you feel good, but you might keep in mind that Hunter is not running for President, and your beloved golden boy in the White House has cut more than his own share of legal corners. If this is all you have to complain about then I suggest you get used to the words "President Biden" 🙂

    If you're like most people, you're getting tired of politics, and even more tired of masking up, infection rates, and other byproducts of this pandemic. "Vote for Me" signs litter the side of the roads, little trips to the movie theatre, our favorite restaurant or market is no longer a good idea, so - - what do you do now? Personally, I've been lucky. 2 new clients have me learning new software systems, bigger workload also, I've repaired and refinished 3 tables and a hutch over the summer, done some yard work, and made some progress with weight loss. Plans for an OTB chess comeback are slow going. A strong player from these forums has graciously given me some tips to improve my play, but I cannot respond much now because of the workload. Overall the news is good on my end -

    - but how about you? What do YOU do in these days of limited lifestyle options, and too many political talking heads?

    Check this, he was at an outdoor sport event on base and some rap music was being played over the loudspeakers, rap being what it is, the Big Scary N-Word was used repeatedly.....the general thought it was inappropriate and asked a group of marines around him how they'd feel if he used the word....(saying the word itself)....
    Anyone else think the official reaction is ridiculous?

    This is clearly all Joe Biden's fault. He should be removed as a presidential candidate. 🙄

    In spite of Trump's wild accusations of massive voter fraud in an election that has not happened yet, and GOP dirty tricks regarding district gerrymandering, and severely limiting polling sites, Trump and the GOP are losing this election. His relentless insistence that mail balloting is inherently fraudulent seems to have had an enormous effect on voters — except it has affected Democrats and Republicans in opposite ways. Republicans have listened to Trump and decided not to vote by mail, while Democrats have decided to do exactly what he doesn’t want - vote in large numbers.

    Now, at campaign stops and in interviews, Trump has been openly grappling with the prospect of a loss and — like a TV pundit — articulating why exactly he’s behind.

    Although more than half of white women voted for Trump in 2016, an ABC News/Washington Post poll released last week showed Biden leading Trump by 28 points among suburban women.

    So at a rally in the Rust Belt town of Johnstown, Pa., the president aired conversations about the support he has lost from suburban women and continued his pitch to voters who live outside of places like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

    “Somebody said, ‘I don’t know if the suburban woman likes you.’ I said, ‘Why?’” Trump told a crowd of supporters Tuesday night. “They said, ‘They may not like the way you talk.’ But I’m about law and order. I’m about having you safe.”

    “So can I ask you to do me a favor? Suburban women, will you please like me?” Trump asked. “I saved your damn neighborhood!!”

    Sorry Republicans, you're too little, and too late.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/18/iran-hails-lifting-un-arms-embargo-momentous-day-sanctions-us-protests

    "Iran hails lifting of 13-year UN arms embargo as 'momentous day:

    "But Iran’s parlous financial state, and the continued threat of US sanctions
    on anyone trading with the country, means Tehran is unlikely to go on a
    short-term buying spree, or reach ...[text shortened]... four years combined, according to the
    London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies."
    "In 2019, Saudi Arabia spent almost $80bn on defence, the same as
    Iran spent over the previous four years combined, according to the
    London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies."


    It would be really nice if every country in the world would cut their defence spending, pay off their debts, and spend a little more on infrastructure, clean energy projects, and helping the poor. It's not going to happen of course, but hope springs eternal.

    McHill....you disappoint me. Should forum comments be on the corruption of the Biden family, intending to occupy the WH and direct our country ? Or should comments be on the coverage of Christian intention, Holy spirit, and political gain.? McHill? You can do this. Rise!..as Eddie Vedder once said.

    Yeah - Republicans who accuse the Bidens of wrongdoing, do so with all the Christian pure intentions of the Holy Spirit, right? They wouldn't think of doing so for possible political or power gain. That just wouldn't be nice. 🙄

    Looks like Trump was right again.


    "The Bidens' relationship with Ukraine came under special attention last year as House Democrats pursued an impeachment inquiry surrounding President Trump's now-infamous July 25 call with Ukraine's president.

    Suggestion: Please let the law enforcement authorities handle this. They usually do a good job of deciding if a crime was committed, and taking appropriate action, unless you plan to use your superior legal skills to hold the trial here on a chess website. 😴

    That's fine. You should do what's best for you in your best judgment.

    I only object to your telling my children that they can't go to school or play with their friends at the local park.

    Calm down SH - I've not told your children to do anything of the kind.

    You and no1marauder both seem to make valid points, personally I think the truth is somewhere between the two. Unlikely that this poses a danger? perhaps, but I'd prefer to err on the side of caution.

    there is no way to tell where the money came from. surely you dont believe disadvantaged poor folks have "billions" at their disposal.

    100% wrong skippy - I know some of it came from me (and I DO know who I am) In addition to contributing to Joe Biden's election campaign I also contributed to many of my Democratic down ballot candidates, in addition, Many of my friends have done the same thing (I DO know who they are too) Republicans love conspiracy theories, so I'll happily pop your little balloon on this one.

    Nice Try! 😏

    Fellers, imagine how many more lies there are. Just scroll down, easy to speed-read, as I understand your reluctance..... there is even an email in the computer where the Burisma chief thanks Hunter for introducing him to VP Biden.

    This is a good read. And helps me in my quest to show Suzianne that her heroes are liars.
    You're trying pretty hard to discredit Joe Biden, but it's not going to work, and all your corn pone, country hick sound bites amuses no one but yourself. Joe Biden will be the President in January of 2021 there Clem, and y'all can tell Billy Bob, and Boomhauer and everyone else in your shrinking world of the inbred child and the shotgun the same thing. 😏
