I mean, we can do this same scenario with Bernie as well.  If the first contests had been SC, AL, MS, and FL then Bernie would have been out before Super Tuesday as well.  That’s my point — the media narrative was based on the idiosyncratic order of state primaries but that media narrative often misses the structural or foundational basis for candidate support.  Biden had a lot of support outside of southern AA’s, but that wasn’t clear until the contest moved beyond those early states (including SC).  

If those other states came first, everyone wouldn’t have dropped out yet and likely would’ve pulled from Biden. So I’m not so sure it would’ve tanked Bernie.

I'd be shocked tho if Biden was leading by much more than within the margin of error in any non black majority dem electorate when primary season started. (Execpt like Delaware maybe)

And a second guess I'd have is that you could look at a lot of those same states and see where he was (as a random number) like +8 or +10 earlier that Summer. He was wildly trending down from what I member

Oh hey, y’all remember those goofballs who always talked about “Alphas” and “Betas” and “Omegas”?

I stumbled across a NYTimes or WaPo article (I forget which) talking about werewolf erotic fan fiction legal wars.  Apparently those idiots using those terms in the context of politics were inspired by werewolf sex fantasies.  :ninja: 

Gazoo honking off to werewolf porn is now canon.

I’m not seeing a lot of differences between Obama and Biden, other than that Biden has moved a bit to the left to reposition himself with the current Dem Party.

The things you seem to be talking about with Biden were decades ago.  That doesn’t make him right, but I also think it’s unfair for people (not necessarily you) to act like Biden is the exact same person he was back in the late 80s and early 90s.  His 8 years as veep under Obama shows that you can’t judge his record and candidacy just by looking at him 25-30+ years ago.

See, (I hate having to constantly bring this up). Biden’s policies have severely impacted people in my community for decades.  He still has a horrible view on drugs in America.  He probably still holds the horrible foreign policy ideas of Obama which is just a further extension of Bush.  
 

probably considered a red herring, but if someone re-enacted slavery then 30 years later is remorseful, gee thanks, doesn’t help the subjugation faced for those years and continue to face.

I actually didn't know anyone on here followed me except Gritz after I saw us repeating ourselves and this one day I think recognized a picture of Waylon from someone who followed me which made me notice Mdrake's handle. 

Frankly my wild swings from Southern talk, to Atlanta United, to occasionally UGA (which can be seriously taboo amongst the GSU and even a little the AUFC communities) to progressive politics to fantasy book talk doesn't inspire a lot of long term follows. And only like five people know me in real life, I don't share my twitter with really anyone irl cause so much of it is bad out of context or can make you look pretty left militant.

For instance I have an aunt I adore who is both big in the Georgia Southern twitter community to the point of being followed and regularly responded to by coach Lundsford and a huge progressive and I briefly thought about exchanging follows with her till I membered that she's a school teacher who is followed by her kids and their parents, and I'm always one refresh away from retweeting dril honking off to antiques roadshow. :ninja:

I think you posted one of your tweets here once, in the long long ago which is how I found it.

Here is fine cause most of that **** usually originated here anyway, I know I get so many good accounts to follow from yall but I'm just trying to imagine any of my bosses or former professors seeing that I follow the guy who says he wants to execute all the small business owners and me trying to explain Krang.

Having said that somehow or other my mother found me and she's like the biggest freaking leftist now it's weird. I member how religious she youst to be.

Ugh the 91 series is on Fox

I would love to watch the 92 series again, that was the first US sporting event I ever saw. That is how I became a Deion Sanders fan and ultimately sealed my sad fate as a Falcons fan a couple of weeks later. I could have been a fan of any other team... on second though, I don‘t want to watch the 92 series :D

So Justin Amash decided to drop out of the presidential race and focus on Congressional reelection. That was quick. Probably the right decision too. Although it is funny that some Trump supporters are now attacking him for wanting Biden to win.

After hearing reviews, I think I am going to her high and watch the Cats movie

I'm only going to watch it if I can see the butthole cut. Otherwise it's like watching an R-rated comedy on FX.

     :tiphat:   …an allegedly fraudulent investment scheme promoted by Trump and his kids, made headlines (again) earlier this week       when a New York judge  allowed the case to proceed.

The lawsuit goes back to October 2018, when plaintiffs filed a federal class-action suit against Trump, his three eldest children (Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka), and the family business for their role in an alleged pyramid scheme that caused them to suffer significant financial losses. The lawsuit initially included a civil RICO claim—essentially claiming that the Trump Organization operated as a criminal enterprise—which was dismissed by the court in July 2019. White-collar defense lawyer and former federal prosecutor Ken White explained that the dismissal of the RICO claim is not surprising, given both the complexity of the civil RICO statute and the reluctance of judges to entertain such claims outside the criminal context. However, the judge allowed the plaintiffs to proceed on their remaining claims of fraud, false advertising, and unfair competition—which ultimately constitute the real meat of the lawsuit.
