        Or the lying about the additional Covid payment.  Or the student loan forgiveness which seems to have just been campaign pandering.  That’s just a few more “accomplishments”.  Like, oh, creating a public option for health care.  That must have caused gales of laughter as it was added to the campaign pandering.

        I did not vote for anyone last election.  But I might vote AGAINST Biden or any other corporate lickspittle Dem next time.  Certainly will not be voting for them.  No matter what Bernie says.  He has turned out to be just another warmonger.

      I posted this video because I got a laugh out of it. I never thought Joementia would get dragged into it. 🙁

          But hey, evidently the most important thing to you concerning a president is voter outreach during a campaign.  Not policy, not warmongering, not breaking those promises the voter outreach folks spread around.

          @eridani

          I thought he was just as bad as Trump. So, I voted for neither.

          Foisting a candidate on us with obvious cognitive decline was also an insult to the voters.

          Anyway, it was a fun video, please watch.

            who visited.  Nice little house.

            Also, concerning some of the hijacking – You Been Voter Outreached!  Part of being a political board, it seems.

              Get elected, jump on the gravy train, fight to stay on the gravy train, and keep others from boarding the gravy train.  That is all US politics and politicians look like to me now.  Most especially the Dems and the GOP.  All the campaign promises made to be discarded cannot change how I feel about that.
