Frankly, I'm amazed, although pleased, the market is doing as well as it is, at least for now. States are getting hammered by Covid outbreaks and that's got to adversely affect the economy and therefore the market at some point.
A reminder for everyone here that you predicted the collapse of markets not only in the US, but worldwide the day after Donald Trump was elected President..

Hmm..... wrong again.  Shocking!

Second, the middle and upper middle class suburban crowd would not mind a return to the Obama years.  Biden has not campaigned much yet, but that is a strong suit of his.  \

On the merits of a Biden presidency, I think that James, Jim, Rod and Russ have made many compelling points over the last few years that show exactly why Biden is likely to do very well with the college educated, white, suburban, middle-class and upper middle-class demographic.

For myself, I don't buy into the D takeover of government "risk" argument.  I've always voted R, but the Obama and Clinton years were not so bad, no matter what the doomsayers on the right thought would happen.  As you know, I'm a big believer in the US system and feel strongly that it overcomes the particular faults of the president, whomever he, and hopefully in 2024; she, might be.  In the big picture at least.

Really?  Ask Stanley Kurtz, who's been studying this absorption of the suburbs by Washington D.C. Bureaucrats for at least a decade now.

Show them what is involved in the AFFH, and see if those Suburbanites change their tune to a Biden Presidency?

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/biden-and-dems-are-set-to-abolish-the-suburbs/

From the article above:

"Biden and his party have embraced yet another dream of the radical Left: a federal takeover, transformation, and de facto urbanization of America’s suburbs. What’s more, Biden just might be able to pull off this “fundamental transformation.”

The suburbs are the swing constituency in our national elections. If suburban voters knew what the Democrats had in store for them, they’d run screaming in the other direction. Unfortunately, Republicans have been too clueless or timid to make an issue of the Democrats’ anti-suburban plans. It’s time to tell voters the truth.

What surprises me is that Biden has actually promised to go much further than AFFH. Biden has embraced Cory Booker’s strategy for ending single-family zoning in the suburbs and creating what you might call “little downtowns” in the suburbs. Combine the Obama-Biden administration’s radical AFFH regulation with Booker’s new strategy, and I don’t see how the suburbs can retain their ability to govern themselves. It will mean the end of local control, the end of a style of living that many people prefer to the city, and therefore the end of meaningful choice in how Americans can live. Shouldn’t voters know that this is what’s at stake in the election?

They're out to destroy the suburbs as they realize that they can no longer find the tax base to pay for the Big cities spending by leftist Democrats.

Guess you don't consider the AFFH, which Trump has been trying to remove for at least a little while now, to be a big deal?

No need for a response, as you previously told us, Biden's America wouldn't be bad.  

Suburbanites will vote for Democrats to their detriment.  

And I agree with you, Biden isn't Trump, he's immensely worse than Obama ever thought of being.

The far left which is slowly but surely taking over the Dem party will now OWN Joe Biden.  

He's just that damned inept, stupid, and fast heading towards senility if he isn't already there.

Stone was convicted by a jury of his peers and not by a judge.
The facts:

PS: Facebook kicked him off instagram the other day for having false accounts.
As usual, you are so wrong and uninformed that it isn't even funny.

The FACTS: https://thefederalist.com/2020/02/13/jury-foreman-in-roger-stone-case-was-trump-hating-russia-collusion-hoaxer/

The JURY FOREMAN, Tomeka Hart posted these statements on Twitter about Trump and ANY Trump supporter:

In August 2019 she stated on Twitter:  

Aug. 19, 2017  "Then stop being racists. Co-signing and defending a racist and his racist rhetoric makes you racist. Point blank,”

This was just one of dozens of tweets that the FOREMAN of the Roger Stone Jury made in 2017.

She made similar tweets in 2018, and 2019, and hid these facts when she was being selected for the Roger Stone Jury.

The woman is SO biased that it makes a person's head spin.

Some other tweets of hers: 

 "Fox News keeps pushing excuses for Trump Jr.'s collusion with Russia that are just really, really bad." https://t.co/JUA4TuWb2N — Tomeka Hart (@hartformemphis) July 14, 2017

Ignoring the numerous indictments, guilty pleas, and convictions of people in 45’s inner-circle, some Republicans are asserting that the Mueller investigation was a waste of time because he hasn’t found evidence

During the Voie Dire process of selecting jurors, none of the above information in the article came out.

When it Did Judge Amy Jackson, should have declared a Mistrial and she should have recused herself from the case.

This conviction of Stone giving him 9 years for a PROCESS crime was so outrageous, it led a number of the prosecutors to resign.

Amy Jackson should be brought up in front of the Judicial Conduct Board to answer for her actions in the case.

The Roger Stone case as Tom Fitton, head of the organization Judicial Watch called the Stone Prosecution "It is the most political one I've ever seen". 

Tom Fitton:    “It rises out of the Mueller investigation, which has been thoroughly compromised by not only the FISA but the political nature of the investigators, most of whom are Democrats or Democrat donors”

Tom Fitton:  “You also have them investigating Trump for almost two years, knowing the underlying issue — Russia collusion — was a big scam and a big lie, they knew that from the get-go

His assertions above were proven to be factually correct, after we learned recently that Comey was aware BACK IN FEB. 2017 that the Dossier was fabricated by Christopher Steele and couldn't be verified, yet they used it to obtain FISA warrants on the Trump campaign 4 SEPARATE times, lying about its authenticity to the FISA court knowing full well that it was total Bullshit.

This railroading of Roger Stone was just part of the corrupt process that Democrats employ ALL The time when they want to GET someone. 

So there, hopefully I educated you, however my guess is that your 2 synapses were probably overloaded from firing on all cylinders at once.

Did you see smoke come out of either ear when your brain was trying to absorb facts, something that you haven't been introduced to in years, since you've been watching CNN 24/7 and don't get any real information?

You really need to develop at least a couple more brain cells, because then you might be able to understand what's really going on in the world!  wink

More about Christopher Steele, who was the author of the Russia Dossier

https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/new-steele-evidence-strengthens-durham-prosecution

Wouldn't want to confuse the resident peanut brain with some facts but here is some info. from the article above:

This week when a British judge ruled against the former FBI human source Christopher Steele, the decision delivered more than an order for the former spy’s company to pay damages to two Russian businessmen maligned by his dossier.

And, Warby revealed, the notes make clear that Steele told his FBI handlers from the get-go that the dossier’s “ultimate client were (sic) the leadership of the Clinton presidential campaign.”

Did you notice that numbnuts?? Steele admitted that he wrote the Dossier for the Clinton campaign.

So the FBI knew immediately that the dossier it used to justify a FISA warrant targeting the Trump campaign was a political opposition research product designed to help Clinton defeat her Republican opponent and did not divulge the connection.


The ruling discloses that officials at the State Department where Hillary Clinton had served as secretary of state were uniquely involved in Steele’s efforts to bring the dossier to attention, including Mrs. Clinton’s former Russia expert Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland, Clinton's successor as secretary of state John Kerry and Joe Biden’s former national security adviser Tony Blinken.

The British evidence continues, noting that Steele openly admitted he was leaking to the news media while working for the FBI.

And for dumbasses out there, who only read and watch CNN, the FBI FIRED STEELE because of his leaking to the press.  

After that Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr's husband was secretly getting information from Steele after the FBI fired Steele.


Then Ohr was sneakily submitting the Information that Steele was giving him through the backdoor and funneling that information to the Crossfire Hurricane Team at the FBI.  

Totally against the FBI's protocols, and when found out that he was doing this, Bruce Ohr wasn't fired from the FBI.

Why not?  Oh, wait a minute I almost forgot. The upper eschelon bigwigs at the FBI were as corrupt as the day is long.

"At bottom, the defense merely posits that if you do not like Donald Trump, you must not like Roger Stone, or if you are concerned about racism on the part of some of the President's supporters, then you must be applying that label to Roger Stone because he was a supporter, too," Jackson wrote in the opinion. "While the social media communications may suggest that the juror has strong opinions about certain people or issues, they do not reveal that she had an opinion about Roger Stone, which is the opinion that matters."

Doesn't matter. She was BIASED. That is obvious, which is why I said Amy Berman should be brought up to the Judicial conduct Board, for disBARment.

Berman's excuse FOR her is a GD JOKE.  

If there is any HINT that a juror is corrupted by BIAS, he/she should immediately be removed. 

Ask your Obama Judge Berman, how she explains and excuses the Twitter posting where Tomeka Hart stated FLAT OUT that "anyone who supports Trump is a racist".

Well your leftist Judge is full of shit.  That is a fact.  Roger Stone proudly exclaimed his support for Donald Trump and Tomeka Hart said that anyone who supports Trump is a racist.  

So then how is the corrupt Judge Berman making the case that the Foreman of the JURY Tomeka Hart is NOT making an opinion about Stone.

You don't have the logical brainpower to make that connection so I just did for YOU and the corrupt Judge Amy Berman.

UPDATE on the Human Castration

Posted By Richard Davis

Let's see, several weeks back Rod Kaufman the resident A-Mart whiner, ran to Herb because he was having trouble debating the political issues of the day.

He made a complaint about me, to Herb, because Rod K. is such an intellectual lightweight that he can't put up cogent rebuttals, so he resorts to running to the owner here to try and get me kicked off.

Rod indicated that if I didn't remove an "LOL" posting that I made, Herb was going to "cut my nuts off".

Rod said that those were "Herb's words".  

Nevermind the fact that I don't believe that Herb said that, however I just wanted to report that my nuts are still intact.  

If Herb demands that I remove any posting I will happily do so as it is his website, but I thought it might behoove me to give an update to the group.

To date, Day 16 of Rod's threat, my nutsack is still in place.

If things change, I will let everyone here know.

Thank you for your interest in this delicate matter.  wink

Perhaps I missed it, but the only thing I've seen from James, Jim, Rod, and Russ are their TDS rants.

I'm still optimistic regarding a Trump victory in November.cool
Me as well Darian.  We need to crawl to the polls if need be.  

Otherwise this will be the norm from Democrats:

$1/2 Billion in Damage in Minneapolis, and this:

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/george-floyd-protests-expensive-civil-disturbance-us-history

There truly are a great number of people who claim to be Republicans, especially those like Bill Krystal and his group, yet they would have voted in Hillary. I don't consider them to have a logical brain in their heads Darian.

The laugh out loud line from these jokers is the usual "we can survive 4 years of Democrats", when they themselves are essentially Democrats in sheep's clothing.  

I'll say it again, after saying it before, my opinion of them is that they don't give a damn about what these loser Democrats will saddle them with in taxes and destruction, as well as removing their liberties and freedoms.

Their children will have to pay for their stupidity.  

The schools have been run by leftists for decades now, since the '60s and look what happened to the nuclear family, which is the biggest reason that the Black community in the inner city is in a shambles.  

In 1960, 85% of Black families had a father and mother at home.  Today, the number is 30%, and guess who is against school vouchers Darian, and always will be?

The Democrats of course.  The Democrat leaders and con artists all make sure their children go to private school, however the poor black in society in the inner city, well his kids have to go to the lousy schools run by the Dems and the NEA.  And so their education level is pathetic because the NEA members never gave a damn about the kids they teach. They'll tell you they do, but they're looking out for the UNION.  That is a clear and simple fact.  

One has to be BLIND not to recognize that the FAR LEFT IS now the Democrat party.  AOC and the squad are running things.  Guess what, they are Marxists, just like the BL marxists.  

Does anyone really think that Nancy Pelosi is in charge??  LOL!   

Look at Venezuela, after Marxists took over.  Well, Venezuela used to be the richest and one of the most free countries in South America and today people are disappearing and they are eating zoo animals and worse.

As the old saying goes, those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.  

They don't care though because Trump is a big, bad, orange man and they can't have that.  ermm

So?

Mueller is senile moron who should be in a home, being fed cream of wheat through a straw.  

Why would anyone give a shit what that fool thinks?  

As for Barr, I've heard him talk about it, but he hasn't recently since these facts have surfaced that the woman who was the Foreman of the Jury was a Trump hating Biased juror, who should have never been on the jury, and whom the Judge should have removed immediately. 

It is HER court nobody else's and for that Obama hack, to have said to the defense team "its your problem, you should have questioned her better" is a joke and the words of a hack IMO.  

It is her SWORN DUTY as a judge to uphold the Constitution, the Law as written, and the egregious way she callously and flippantly stated that she thought that the Foreman didn't lie, is a testament to her incompetence as a Judge.  

She is SUPPOSED to be looking for JUSTICE, not be swayed by her political proclivities and her hatred of this President.

It is outrageous that she would sentence Roger Stone, a man who has never been in trouble with the law EVER in his life, to 9 GD years in prison for a PROCESS crime that was committed similarly by Clapper, Comey, McCabe, and the biggest scumbag of all John Brennan. 

They are the scum of the Earth and have PROVABLY LIED in front of Congress, committed perjury to the FISA court, and lied to the FBI.

Why are not ONE of those leftist scumbags NOT being charged with crimes and threatened with jail?

Answer that.
