Seems like rescuing dogs during lockdown is a thing around here. It happened to us this past week. This guy wandered up dirty and skinny, playing with my daughter in the front yard. After a few days o

He learned that **** from Trump the king of mockery. (esp, like when Trump mocked the physically challenged reporter that was a despicable thing to do) Biden would never reduce himself that low not even to mock Trump because he's a civilized human.

Maybe he’s just a terrible human being and this has nothing to do with Trump.

Lindsey is terrified of Harrison. It’s a **** shame out of state democrats pumped a third world country’s GDP into McGrath’s campaign instead of Harrison’s. Voting ghouls like him out is critical to keeping this country limping along on life support.

 

Harrison has all the money he needs.  He raised something like $57 million last month alone.

I guess when you lived off the gubmints teat as long as Fading Joe (47 years) anything is possible, like fondling women in public, sniffing their hair, inappropriately touching and kissing them while on camera, threating physical harm and touching voter's in public, and taking bribes from foreign adversaries?

Yeah, Fading Joes is a real sweetheart, numbnuts. ^ Yeah, your boy is a civilized human being :rolleyes::flush:

Well the early voting line is insane in my area.  I fortunately can afford to be off if need be to vote.  I’ll wait a few days

Voted on Monday, 2 people in front of me, total time 2 minutes. 30 seconds of that was the volunteer complimenting me on  my drivers license photo and smile and my attire (eat your heart out @Big_Dog she was 20 years my junior) but it was very easy.

Virginia has 45 day early in-person voting so if it was busy we could go another day.  Now what to do with my 4 (two for the wife two for me) mail-in ballots. But I'm an honest person...they will go down to the Lake House fire pit, I'm sure.

On the afternoon of Feb. 24, President Trump declared on Twitterthat the coronavirus was “very much under control” in the United States, one of numerous rosy statements that he and his advisers made at the time about the worsening epidemic. He even added an observation for investors: “Stock market starting to look very good to me!”

But hours earlier, senior members of the president’s economic team, privately addressing board members of the conservative Hoover Institution, were less confident. Tomas J. Philipson, a senior economic adviser to the president, told the group he could not yet estimate the effects of the virus on the American economy. To some in the group, the implication was that an outbreak could prove worse than Mr. Philipson and other Trump administration advisers were signaling in public at the time.

The next day, board members — many of them Republican donors — got another taste of government uncertainty from Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council. Hours after he had boasted on CNBC that the virus was contained in the United States and “it’s pretty close to airtight,” Mr. Kudlow delivered a more ambiguous private message. He asserted that the virus was “contained in the U.S., to date, but now we just don’t know,” according to a document describing the sessions obtained by The New York Times.

The document, written by a hedge fund consultant who attended the three-day gathering of Hoover’s board, was stark. “What struck me,” the consultant wrote, was that nearly every official he heard from raised the virus “as a point of concern, totally unprovoked.”

The consultant’s assessment quickly spread through parts of the investment world. U.S. stocks were already spiraling because of a warning from a federal public health official that the virus was likely to spread, but traders spotted the immediate significance: The president’s aides appeared to be giving wealthy party donors an early warning of a potentially impactful contagion at a time when Mr. Trump was publicly insisting that the threat was nonexistent.

Interviews with eight people who either received copies of the memo or were briefed on aspects of it as it spread among investors in New York and elsewhere provide a glimpse of how elite traders had access to information from the administration that helped them gain financial advantage during a chaotic three days when global markets were teetering.
