    IMO the election of 2020 is a no contest - do we want an America with all of the Freedoms and Rights that the Consitution guarantees or do we want a Socialist country led by those who want to change America into a third world country. My decision is Trump/Pence 2020.

    President Trump will continue to preserve the Freedoms and Rights of all American citizens whereby Biden will change the USA into a third world Socialist country.

    Lettau, I think you fail to realize, the far left faction of the Democratic Party are so close to Communistic thinking it is scary as hell to anyone who wants to preserve America for their grandchildren.

    Worse still you are defending them. Sounds as if that is your leaning as well.

    It won't work Lettau. It never has and it never will, surely you can see that. It always ends up the same, a failing dictatorship

    Lettau, did you hear what your BLM New York leader had to say last night as he was being interviewed on Fox News? If they don't get their way they will bring down or burn down the American institutions....now isn't that a good element to have in the Democratic party. Wonder what Sleepy Joe thinks about that - guess we will never know because his handlers won't let him out of the basement....sad.

  • "Wonder what Sleepy Joe thinks about"

    Probably he is scared and confused. It is clear that he is suffering from advanced Alzheimer disease. But the Democrat's lust for power and Jill Biden's desire to be First Lady is all that is keeping him in. It is clear the Joe's family does not love him and the DNC is fine with abusing the elderly to get into power.

    IMO , it's too soon to make a decision on the 11/3/20 Election because of nothing else , look what happened in 2016.

    A lot of issues and unforeseen crisis can happen between now and then too like sickness or death , an invasion of the US of A by a Foreign State , many things . COVID would be an example .

    Predictions are good but so are lotto numbers too .

    IMO , Biden's VP choice might be a wide card . Another thing , this President is apt to do anything on the spur of the moment , he's very unpredictable , he could shoot himself in the foot .

    Anything is possible so far in the year 2020 .

    What is it you "...gotta wonder..." about?

    The fact that the democratic party itself does not endorse marxists or antifa is no different than the republican party not endorsing radical white supremacists (even though they love and support Trump.)

    What is it about this concept that "troubles" you?

    Or is it that you actually do support radical white supremacists?

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Possibly you recall that remaining quiet when the opposition is self-destructing, is a logical course of action.

    What more could be said when...

    Trump is ending government testing while Covid-19 is increasing in more than half the states.

    The CDC specifies masking and separation, while the President discourages masks and encourages crowds.

    In the midst of a pandemic he wants to take health insurance away with no replacement.

    He denies police reform by returning to "stop and frisk."

    How could anyone add to that?

    Rick, I don't consider all Democrats to be the same, it's the nutty left wing segment of the party that are the concern. It is only when the moderates fall in lock step with the left wingers and go with them because of the D name that most see as problematic.

    I am against anything truely Socialistic because it eventually destroys people and makes them lazy dependents. There is a huge difference in providing people a hand up when they are down and need it versus providing people a promise of lifetime handouts to buy their votes.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sun, Jun 28, 2020, at 2:29 PM
  • Mr. Braswell,

    Actually you said "...cater to..." as in "provide what is desired or needed."

    I would not say the democratic party provides what "socialist communist groups" desires or needs.

    Then came

    "...believe I have said they pander to them."

    Pander as in "to provide gratification for others' desires," is not accurate either.

    Democrats don't provide "gratification" to socialist communist groups.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Socialist communist groups are not related to the democratic party, any more than radical white supremacists are related to the republican party.

    They may support democratic candidates just like David Duke supports the republican party. I don't believe the "support" is retroactive in either case.

    In the "spirit of debate" I would suggest that the continuous accusations by republican/conservatives that democrats are, or lean toward socialists/communists are solely because they have no basis to support Trump.

    Guess you missed the Biden comments on the "state of the COIVD-19 fight" from about 1:00 2:00 Edt, which included a 30 minute press conference in Wilmington DE.

    Not surprising that you missed it, but he provided excellent advice that would help our President if he followed that advice.

    He also implied that he was more than ready to match his "cognitive abilities" to those of his potential opponent in debates.

    That's funny. I don't believe that there's a politician in the country that has more "shady dealings" than our President does.

    What President Trump will have to prepare for is defending almost 4 years of lies and failures.

    A recent example will be explaining how our COVID-19 response puts us down into the Russia / Brazil class. How did we end up with about 25% of world cases and deaths.

    "That's funny. I don't believe that there's a politician in the country that has more "shady dealings" than our President does."

    Really now Lefty, unlike Obama, Trump did not have to use the IRS to go after his political foes... remember that scandal, then there was Obama's little trick of directing the FBI's activities in their spygate on the Trump campaign and their trying to entrap Trump allies. Remember that scandal Lefty. Trump never pulled any of those dirty political tactics that I am aware of. And so far as Trump's wealth, he made that well before becomming President, unlike the Clintons and the Obamas who's only real wealth building enterprize was politics.

    And the Clintons at no time have we ever had so many people affiliated with a political figure committing suicide. Some with more than one well placed shot to the back of their head.

    And Obama's records are still sealed are they not? Maybe he doesn't want anyone checking on his educational status reportedly as a foreign student and then running for our country's highest office as a citizen. Hmmmm! How is that for transparency.

    I am surprised you would want to go there with the dirty politicians you are so busy with, trying to explain away their failures at keeping their nose clean while in State and Federal Office.

    "The Los Angeles City Council voted to cut hiring at the Police Department, pushing the number of sworn officers well below 10,000 and abandoning a budget priority once seen as untouchable by city leaders.

    Overall, the council's decision delivered a $150- million hit to the LAPD budget, much of it coming from funds earmarked for police overtime pay. Councilman Curren Price, who pushed for the cuts, said two-thirds of the savings would ultimately be funneled into services for Black and Latino communities, such as hiring programs and summer youth jobs."

    The above from the LA Times.

    Another disaster shaping up that Lettau will try to blame Trump for.

    Hope everyone can remember de-funding the police was a half baked idea backed by Democrats when they need to call someone for protection and get a busy signal.

    Lettau, my ability is not in question when it comes to math. It is your inability to furnish complete information to prove a claim you made with a number you pulled out of the air that is problematic.

    I used math daily in running my business which is still thriving in it's 57th year 20 years after I retired. And math and related subjects such as geometry and algebra were my favorites in school. Know your subject and who you are talking to before trying to be cute. I may have slowed down but still aware you cannot supply an answer to a problem without all of the information.

    Uly, you ever heard the old saying that goes like this....

    You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

    With you Uly, people are getting so used to you, I think it is safe to say it is getting harder for you to fool any of the people at any time.

    A hint for you Uly.

    How many Republicaks were surveyed, how many Independents were surveyed and how many Democrats were surveyed. Better still give us your methodology on how you arrived at 80% since there was no such number published in the report you site.

    Funny thing if you had read the report Uly, it does tell you how many people were polled totally and the exact number appearing to be dissatisfied and it is not your 80% number, but even their number is meaningless as they may have surveyed 90% Democrats. And we all know Democrats have been whining about Trump since November 2016, a couple of months before his taking office.

    "I think it is safe to say it is getting harder for you to fool any of the people at any time."

    Your opinion above is the biggest part of your problem. Passing on the truth and factual information is not trying to "fool people."

    It is more than a bit ironic for a Trump supporter to even mention "fooling" people. Good example is that since April the President, on about 9 different dates including yesterday, has said that the virus will just go away soon. I'd suggest that Trump supporters are in the group that's fooled "all of the time."

    Sounds fair to me. And you can use any multiple up or down of that example.

    There was actually a restaurant in St. Louis County that tried that nonsense, round up to the nearest dollar, but not down. Are they still doing it? Don't know or care, fortunately they aren't the only place to eat.

    Lettau, i probably learned the rounding principle while you were still in short pants. Or maybe trying th get a grip on upper & lower case letters.

    Try using weighted averages with the accepted numbers for republicans and democrats and you'll get about 77.6% which you can round up to about 80%.

    Lettau, that is your 2nd attempt to explain away your original 80% lie. No more believable than the first attempt. Hell, why not just round up and go to a nice even 100% and make it look as bad as you can Uly. It fits your whole reason for breathing it would appear. The numbers of a legitimate study do not need doctoring. And I question 1900 queries in a population of about 330 million's validity. Is that what inspired you to cheat the numbers to begin with Lefty L?

    Next time I go to the grocery store and they tell me the bill is $100.00, I am going to hand them a $10 bill and tell them round that up to $100 Lefty Letta promotes that as the modern way to do business.

    Put your thumb on the scale, round it up and call it a weighted average rounded up.

    Your good at fudging Lefty but I am even better at BS detection than you are at fudging.

    The facts are these Lefty, you reported a fake number and you got caught at it and you have tryed and failed to explain you way out of it all day.

    I don't care if the number was 7% or 78%, using your own sources you cannot find 80% because they did not print 80% of Americans. The sooner you admit your fabrication the sooner it is over.

    Lettau, I spent a lot of my life running a business and I learned how to separate facts from BS many years ago. in some cases it can be quite difficult, in others where you are dealing with simple minds it is quite simple and easy. You fall in the simple minds category and it takes next to no effort to sort out your efforts to deceive.

    You are like a screen door.... easy to see through.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Thu, Jul 2, 2020, at 11:36 PM
  • Mr. VanGennip,

    We are all very well aware that you have had years of running a successful business (clearly because it’s something that you boast about so often.)

    What is highly questionable is your dubious claim to be have learned to “…separate facts from BS many years ago.” Perhaps the years have taken their toll.

    Your “ability” now seems to lie somewhere between severely compromised and totally controverted. This is directly attributable to your incapability to discern “facts from BS” with regard to our President’s falsehoods, blunders and failures, stretching from his campaign to the present day.

    How is it you have not called out the lies related to “Mexico will pay” or “my crowd was bigger than Obama’s” or “only I can fix this” or “my health plan will be better, cheaper and cover everyone” or “the Russia hoax” or “totally exonerated” or (flash forward to this year) “"It's one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It's going to be just fine" or “everything was ‘under control’ and that the virus would just ‘disappear’ in warmer months” or ““We’re using the full power of the federal government to defeat the virus, and that’s what we’ve been doing.” or “We’re going to have a great victory.” And so on…

    You claim to be able to “separate facts from BS,” yet you’re doing an abominable job in detecting Trump administration BS.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    In this case you’re making a silly argument about the fact that 77.6% or even 75% is “about 80%.” You seem to be obsessed with rounding rules, while at the same time ignoring the issue of why 75% or more of Americans feeling the country is headed in the wrong direction.

    Incidentally, I have also had almost 70 years learning to “separate facts from BS.” I deal in facts, which for some strange reason, you apparently have never figured out.

    If you want to discuss BS, start paying attention to what our President says and does.

    I'd suggest it's the "simple minds" that disregard what comes out of the current administration.

    Lettau, it was you we were discussing regarding separating facts from BS not the President. You seem to be so easily confused these days. Is your hatred for Trump that great that it's eating away your brain?

    So far as what Trump or any other politician says, let a lot of it go in one ear and out the other. It is what they do or not do that concerns me. And no politician does it alone, but they're policies either produce results or they do not. Trump's policies got this country moving again after 8 years of stagnation, that pleased me. And nobody had a bigger mouth compared to results than Obama did. I have not heard a politician who could use "I" in a speech more often than he did. His ego compared to his history of results will hold a record for years to come.

    Now back to you.... learn to stay on topic and quit diverting to others. So far as your criticism of me not wanting to deal with all of your approximations, I have always tried to deal in absolutes, my successes or failures were dealt with in real numbers, no rounding up or down. I would have only been fooling myself.

    If you need something to gauge by try this.... you have an expansion you want to do and you will need to borrow money, you call your banker. He says file a credit report and give me a Financial Statement. Try your rules or laws of rounding with the banker and see what it will get you. The banker will separate facts from BS for you if you are incapable of doing it for yourself.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Fri, Jul 3, 2020, at 11:23 AM
  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Here’s the help I promised….

    “…it was you we were discussing regarding separating facts from BS…”

    Actually, it was not “we.” It was you boasting of your abilities. I just pointed out that you do an extremely poor job of separating fact from Trump BS.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “Is your hatred for Trump that great…”

    More VanGennip misunderstanding and apparent bewilderment.

    I have never said one word about “hating Trump.” As a matter of fact, SO conservatives are the only ones claiming that lie.

    The President is clearly incompetent (see Bolton’s book and the Mueller Report). He has failed on many issues, the most recent being his handling of the Corona Virus and inability and unwillingness to protect US troops in Afghanistan. He lies consistently. His basic approach is “Trump first.”

    He should have been removed from office last January, which is something the even republicans are now realizing.

    There’s more, but being critical of his words and actions is allowed in America, without being accused of “hatred.”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “So far as what Trump or any other politician says, let a lot of it go in one ear and out the other.”

    So you’re totally comfortable with a President that lies to the American people constantly.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “And no politician does it alone…”

    The President is not just any “politician” he was elected to lead which he has failed at.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “Trump's policies got this country moving again…”

    The average GDP growth during Trump’s first 3 years was 2.5% compared to 2.3 % in Obama’s last 3 years.

    Job growth in Trump’s first 35 months was 6.7 million, compared to 7.6 million in Obama’s last 35 months.

    He did get a tax cut (mainly for the top 5%) by borrowing about a trillion and a half dollars.

    The Senate approved numerous less than qualified, partisan judges (which does not mean that they will not move to a more non-partisan position when on the bench.

    Don’t forget that Trump’s policies brought the country to a screeching halt by denying and delaying with respect to the Corona virus

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…after 8 years of stagnation…”

    See above. In addition, the economy grew by 17%.

    The stock market grew from about 7000 to about 20,000 (3 times 7000 equals 21,000).

    And unemployment fell from about 10% to about 5% (while in the current administration it went from about 5% to about 4%, and guess what happened next.)

    That’s not “stagnation.” Where the Trump economy is now is stagnation.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “His ego compared to his history of results will hold a record for years to come.’

    That’s your unsubstantiated opinion. While it’s not true, if it were, it’s been totally busted by Trump.

    Do you actually not recognize the “Trump” ego?

    "American voters view Donald Trump as having traits associated with sadistic personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder, according to new research published in Clinical Psychological Science."

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…learn to stay on topic and quit diverting to others.”

    I didn’t divert. The issue was the fact that the vast majority of Americans are dissatisfied with the direction of the nation.

    You seem to be the one quibbling about “rounding” of 77.6% to about 80%.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…me not wanting to deal with all of your approximations…”

    How you want to deal with “approximations” is your business. However, poll numbers are by nature approximations, think back to what “a margin of error of 2 percentage points” means.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “I have always tried to deal in absolutes, my successes or failures were dealt with in real numbers, no rounding up or down.”

    That’s totally your business and completely understandable.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “I would have only been fooling myself.”

    …as you seem to be doing now. It’s been enjoyable leading you through these details.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…will need to borrow money, you call your banker.”

    That’s never been a problem for me. You need not worry.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    So was all of the above simple enough for you”

    2. Your credit rating is OK.

    3. ??

    However you failed to understand the example as it was stated. I think most could easily understand. But then I suppose it was too complicated for you.

    It had everything to do with rounding up and how a banker would separate the facts from the BS if the need arose.

    I will add for you and your answer. Show me a man who has never borrowed any money and I will show you a man that was never a real job creator. Smart men borrow money and hire people to make money. It is a business tool Lettau.

    The first line to this article pretty well says it all "Legal American voters will make the decision on 11/3/20 as to who will lead the USA for the next 4 years."

    I've seen many opinions who they should be from both sides of the aisle , many very bitter , but no one near who these voters are .

    How about moderates , Independents , and those who are sitting back watching , listening , attempting to ignore and/or sort out the back and forth daily rhetoric hate between 2 political ideological Parties ?

    In the 2016 Election , less then 50% of the eligible voters chose not to vote , it's not my surprise if this under 50% goes down further in the 2020 elections not only due to apathy and frustration , but mixfusions too .

  • Mr. Schaefer,

    "...when Obama as President visited there..."

    This is what took place when President Obama visited...

    “Tribal leaders praised Mr. Obama and presented him with a ceremonial blanket with an eight-point red, white and blue star. “No other president comes close to the honesty and compassion he has shown for our tribal nations,” said David Archambault II, one of the leaders.”

    David Archambault II (Lakota: Tokala Ohitika) is the former (2013-2017) tribal chairman of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota. He was instrumental in the Dakota Access Pipeline protests and continues to work to promote an understanding of the historical treaty rights and indigenous rights of Native American people.

    WASHINGTON — President Obama announced on Friday that he had rejected the request from a Canadian company to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline, ending a seven-year review that had become a symbol of the debate over his climate policies.

    You may not be happy about it but you are wrong for praise does not exist on the Rez , only respect which must be earned -- respect is not just given , it must be earned . Please give me the name of the Elders who had a sit Down with Barack Obama who earned his respect . Please give which one of the 357 Treaties with the US of A Government that were Honored by Barack Obama .

    If anything , there may have been a photo op or 2 at the best . I believe your bias judgement clouds you past .

    "There's a photo on the link"...photo-ops , as I said before and not one Treaty was honored . Nor was any praised given to President Obama . Perhaps a thnx but no praise or respect .

    Factual you say ? The Keystone XL oil pipeline was built and exist , Obama is/was a liar . In 2015 Keystone XL was temporarily delayed by then-President Barack Obama , it was not permanently shut down . On January 24, 2017, President Donald Trump took action intended to permit the pipeline's completion . The current President has no respect from the Peoples either . None .

    Please don't tell what I like or don't like , no Treaty was honored by either President . Including your Obama..

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sat, Jul 4, 2020, at 5:58 PM
  • Mr. VanGennip,

    “…from what [you] have determined from observing [my] posts…”

    All that means is you have formed you own opinion, which means your “observation” has nothing to do with facts. You constantly seem pull up RNC/conservative talking points and form illogical conclusions. A good example is how anyone that disagrees with you or corrects your misinformation, must be an evil liberal, socialist or communist intent on destroying the nation. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Based on your posts, I could with equal validity, conclude that there are no conservatives that don’t claim to know it all. That’s where the missing conservative logic gene comes into play. Remember how conservatives want to believe that the way to reduce abortions is to eliminate birth control, or the way to balance the budget is to go into further debt by borrowing money for tax cuts for the top one percent, or when conservatives claim to be for reduced government size and spending and do nothing of the sort, and so on.

    So you claim the ability to make these astute determinations from your observations and analysis of the posts of others. That’s amazing. Furthermore how could I feature myself to be the “smartest man in the universe,” when you and Mr. Schaefer and other SO conservatives are so far ahead of me that it would be impossible for anyone to reach your exalted level.

    As I’ve mentioned several times before, try facts and the truth for a change. Best advice would for you to not take yourself so seriously.

    Mr. VanGennip,

    “…from what [you] have determined from observing [my] posts…”

    1.) All that means is you have formed you own opinion, which means your “observation” has nothing to do with facts.

    Response: I spent a good number of years observing and making determinations about people. Friends, Foes, Employees, Customers and so on. It stood me well. As a for instance a guy tells me more than once on a business deal, I have the money, don't worry. I worry because you generally find out, no they do not have the money.

    A prospective employee tells you, I can fix anything. Quite likely he cannot.

    And I never claimed the observation being any more than what my gut feeling tells me. And my gut is most often correct.

    2.) You constantly seem pull up RNC/conservative talking points and form illogical conclusions.

    Response: Really, since I don't have a list of talking points from any organization I have no idea what you are talking about. My thoughts and opinions are my own, formed from reading histoy, my beliefs and my own experiences.

    3.) A good example is how anyone that disagrees with you or corrects your misinformation, must be an evil liberal, socialist or communist intent on destroying the nation. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Response: And that would be your opinion but not rooted in fact.

    4.) Based on your posts, I could with equal validity, conclude that there are no conservatives that don’t claim to know it all.

    Response:Conclude away, I care little what you think.

    5.) That’s where the missing conservative logic gene comes into play. Remember how conservatives want to believe that the way to reduce abortions is to eliminate birth control,

    Response: Good grief, where did that silly comment come from? First I heard that, I know some religions ban birth control for their believers, but it has absolutely nothing to do with abortion, and they condemn abortion as murder which is what it is. But banning birth control has nothing to do with all conservatives, where do you get your information anyway? Conservations I know are moral people who abhor murder and are against abortion because it is murder of the unborn.

    6.) or the way to balance the budget is to go into further debt by borrowing money for tax cuts for the top one percent, or when conservatives claim to be for reduced government size and spending and do nothing of the sort, and so on.

    Response: The top earners are the job creators and that is the reason their taxes were cut. You cannot cut the taxes of those who do not pay taxes. It has worked before. And you are a fine one to talk about deficit spending, Obama, you know, the one you worship, doubled the debt of all Presidents before him with his borrowing to put people on welfare. Why for instance do you feel the top 1% owes so much greater a percentage share of their earnings than you do? If we ever get equal taxation in this country you will find the government will be shrunk, but it isn't going to happen under the liberal policy of buying votes with handouts. You can take that to the bank.

    7.) So you claim the ability to make these astute determinations from your observations and analysis of the posts of others. That’s amazing.

    Response: You really thinks so? I do not find it difficult at all. When you are observing someone that is as easy to see through as a screen door, why do you think that takes special ability. It's elementary Watson!

    8.) Furthermore how could I feature myself to be the “smartest man in the universe,” when you and Mr. Schaefer and other SO conservatives are so far ahead of me that it would be impossible for anyone to reach your exalted level.

    Response: Don't try being humble now. It doesn't fit your personality well. I won't speak for Mr. Schaefer, although I think he stands head and shoulders above some here, when it comes to common sense, I won't point fingers. And I will continue to watch, listen and make my observations as I see them. I don't claim now, nor never have, to be the smartest man in creation but I can recognize BS when I read it.

    9,) As I’ve mentioned several times before, try facts and the truth for a change. Best advice would for you to not take yourself so seriously.

    Response: I do use facts as well as judgement from observing and I do tell the truth, your problem is you cannot recognize it in writing or reading. If I took myself seriously I would simply ignore you, however it is too much entertainment to not get involved.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Seems you’ve spewed out a ton of words, phrases, sentences, presumptions, opinions, conclusions, accusations, etc. much of which devoid of truth or logic.

    All because you were unable to accept the fact that 77.6% rounds up to about 80%. Then this allowed you to establish your clear cut superiority, at least in your own mind, and underscored your previous attempts to unsuccessfully depict others as your inferiors.

    Your failures should not obscure the original issue, that being that 75%, 77.6% or about 80% feel that the current administration is allowing our country to drift, rudderless and leaderless, in the wrong direction.

    What you continually ignore is the “lack of logic” demonstrated by President Trump, who doesn’t understand that controlling the virus is the prerequisite to reopening the economy.

    I would hope that someone with your depth and breadth of experience would be able to give him some guidance. So what is it that you believe should be done for him to be able to “fix things?”

    Incidentally, Hillary was on Fox pointing out that she would have handled the pandemic better than Trump did.

    That's not much of an effort, considering how poorly the President's performed, but maybe he should ask her.

Or maybe draft her for Vice President. But then maybe old Joe isn't so far gone yet as to feel suicidal by a couple of well placed rounds to the back of his head.

    DA, from my experience rounding down when there is money involved could put you in Tiger Wood's position.... a partner trying to wrap a 3 iron around your neck.

    Golf was not my best game. One of the last games I played, I think it was the 17th hole. Tee shot landing zone, you better stay left as there was a lake on the right. I stayed left, just a tad further than I intended and found my ball in the edge of the woods. Nothing I could do but chip out into the narrow fairway. My ball landed squarely in the middle of the fairway and it rolled and rolled until it went over the edge and down into the lake...almost. When I made it over there to see if my ball was retrivable, it wasn't. It was laying right against the jaw of an alligator sunning himself. My partner says I can reach that with my retriever. I said no, I have another ball. He insisted and I finally told him, go ahead, I know I can outrun you. He said forget it. So I took a picture and I made the drop and left the gator snooze. My score on that hole definitely needed a little rounding exercise. Too bad Lettau wasn't there to give me some pointers.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Reading your words, “…quit obsessing over me as well” brought on one of those “coffee spitting” gales of laughter. If you want me to quit making fun of your shortcomings and pompous blustering, just say so. And far from “upsetting me” your flimsy responses and non-answers confirm the opinion I’ve had of you all along. Maybe a polite description would be “Trump-like.”

    What does concern me is your obsession with Hillary. I am fully aware of what happened in 2016 and why, but it was four years ago so why are you still worrying about her.

    I only brought her up because I read she was on Fox “lecturing” President Trump. I don’t even know what she said, but her just being on Fox was amusing.

    Finally, in light of your customary “non-answer” to questions you must deem to be “too hard,” I’ll give you another opportunity…

    What the President is doing right now to “cure” the economy and the pandemic, is clearly not working, given there have been 4 or 5 days in a row with 50,000+ cases per day, and more businesses closing down again.

    So what do you think President Trump should do? What approach should he take?

    (I really don’t expect any logical response, but just thought you deserve anther chance, especially after the cute golf story.)

    First Lefty the golf comments were not a story . I have the picture and a witness to prove it.

    So far as giving Trump advice. Politics and running a government are not on my resume. And unlike you, I try not to give advice where it is not needed or asked for.

    However, if you would listen there is some advice I could give you. The advice I would give if asked for it would be to quit trying to find fault with our elected leader and spend more time minding your own affairs. Maybe you wouldn't still be working at this age.

    However I won't give you that advice unless you ask for it or continue in trying to mind my affairs.

    ANALYSIS/OPINION:

    I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

    Is it because America is racist? Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy? Is it because of the Illuminati?

    No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and the adoption of Democratic Party government dependency.

    We have just had eight years of the first black president. Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes. I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

    And it is no one but black America’s fault.

    No one can solve this problem but black America. No one can throw enough money at it. We’ve tried that. Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

    I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a **** what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends. I do care about your actions.

    Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crime in America. Of course, there is going to be a problem with police. And, of course, there are some bad policemen.. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people. Even Harvard said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live. Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community.

    I for one am tired of being blamed. I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others. I don’t oppress anyone. I don’t hold anyone down. I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees. Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable? That makes me uncomfortable. It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing.

    Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America. Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world. If you are born in America you’ve won life’s economic lottery. Take advantage of it.

    The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of cultural Marxism by our education system. They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on. All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that. Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it.

    Don’t kneel when my anthem is played. Too many people died for that flag. You are free to protest but not then. I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that. The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem. There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property. This would solve the problem immediately.

    The NFL has deeply offended most of America. They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

    We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Leftist multicultural agenda. Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.. Having more than one American culture is destroying the country. But then again, that is what the Left wants.

    Do Black Lives Matter?

    It is your job to determine if this is a racist rant or just a review of factual data...

    WHAT IF ALL THE BLACKS SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA, WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION:

    Amount of people in poverty would drop - 34%,

    The prison population would go down by -37%,

    Welfare recipients would go down by - - - 42%,

    Gang members would go down by - - - - - 53%

    Chlamydia cases would go down - - - - - - 54%,

    Homelessness would go down - - - - - - - -57%

    Syphilis would go down - - - - - - - - - - - - 58%.

    AIDS & HIV would go down by - - - - - - - -65%,

    Gonorrhea would go down - - - - - - - - - - -69%,

    Average ACT scores would go UP - - - - - 5.5 points.

    Average IQ would go UP - - - - - - - - - - - -7.4 points, putting us 3rd in the world tied with Japan,

    Average SAT scores would go UP almost - - - - -100 points,

    The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year,

    BUT DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 76% OF THEIR VOTING BASE!!!

    And, many criminal defense attorneys would have to find another line of work!

    Yes, Black lives DO matter.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Pretty much what I expected. Non-answers, excuse making, diversions, distractions, etc. It was a pretty simple question, which you were unwilling to even address. Saying the advice to the President is “not needed” may be the understatement of the year.

    The best description of his actions is “floundering” with no idea of what to do. He still mutters about the “greatest economy in history” while not realizing that comeback progress depends on conquering the coronavirus first. His pushing state governors to open too early turned out to be totally counterproductive. I’d suggest he definitely needs help, but strangely won’t accept any.

    So it’s not a matter of “…trying to find fault with our elected leader…” as the “faults” are everywhere and easy to find. His faults are damaging our country, that’s what makes it my concern. And it should be yours.

    In any case, my affairs are secure and completely under control and nothing you have to worry about. My working now is because I enjoy it and am productive. As for your “affairs,” they’re not anything I have any interest in.

    I am, however, interested in the future of our country and when you make absurd claims about its demise, I speak up.

    “Capisce.” Use of the word in English by non-Italians is considered rude, (but you probably already knew that and used it intentionally anyhow.)

    A .6 on a hole? And I don’t know much about golf? A person does not record a decimal score on a hole. Decimals do come into play when a players handicap index is kept which is different from that persons handicap. Those numbers help a player especially when visiting a different course and know it’s rating and slope. Most golfers have a “home” course on which most index and handicap are based on. But let’s say I use your white guilt and play Pebble Beach or any course in the world and my index/handicap will translate just as if I were at my “home”.

    I know you already knew all that just because you think you do.

    BTW-my handicap is 13. My index is 12.7 the last time I looked at my GHIN.

    And then there was a guy in my group once who could hit two balls out of bounds then three putt and still show par on a par 4 hole. I think he was a Democrat with rounding experience.

    What's also funny is your definition of "ordering around." I have not "ordered you around" nor would I ever have intended to. Neither do you ever "displease" me, why would I care what you claim.

    I get along perfectly well with my neighbors, the people I work with, and other friends around here. No "ordering around" of anyone, there is no reason whatsoever. Furthermore what I said about "rednecks" is that they'd likely be Trump voters, but I don't know anyone around here. I know some Trump voters but none I would call a "redneck." Sorry.

    Lefty. I have already told you once, but I learned rounding while you was still in short pants, or maybe diapers. I also had instruction on when to use it. Your use of it reminds me off an old Irishman now deceased who once told someone who accused him of lying when he told one of his tall tales. The Irishman replied back, there are only two incidences in which I would lie. First case, if it was to protect the honor of a lady and the 2nd case, if it sounded better than the truth.

    You Mr.Lettau have taken his justification for lying and elevated it to an art form.

    More on rounding. Once had a company consistently billing me on rounding but it was always in their favor. Small items could be billed at 3 places like .046 cents each. Obviously these items were not bought in lots of 1 or 2 pieces, but a 100 or 500 in a box. But when the price was carried out to it's line item price if the number came to $4.043 they set their computer to total at $4.05. Mine however was set correctly to total at $4.04. The way I learned rounding $4.043 was $4.04 but 4.045 or higher was $4.05 you round down as well as round up. I paid according to my computer figuring if the supplier needed that penny so did I and by the law of averaging it was mine, never was challenged on it and by the way I was correct. For Lefty L.'s edification anything short of 79.5 is not rounded up to 80 using the rules I was taught. It's that fuzzy math thing again. Make things look as good or bad as you can by cheating if necessary.

Someone asks, wasn't he the class dummy voted least likely to succeed in our glass. Yeah says another, let's find out what his secret is.

  • Mr. Braswell,

    “Watch that you tube by any chance?”

    In watching your video I saw a combination of believeible comments but a bit more of fictional scenes and misinformation.

    The clips of the crowds kneeling and chanting appeared particularly suspect. There was nothing said about when or where it supposedly happened. They need more documentation if it’s to be believed. The same is true of the apparently staged clip of girl kneeling and confessing.

    What made sense is their comments on changing the “black mindset.” That would clearly be beneficial if coupled with a series of other needed improvements, both within black society and the general population.

    Their claim that “white guilt is real” was simply stated without any justification or rationale. That white people in the past were “guilty” of various offenses, and some whites are guilty today is probably true, but this does not afflict all white people in all situations now.

    White privilege does exist and is real. However, their claiming it was the same as “white superiority,” as the twins did, is not true. White privilege is based simply on the fact that whites are automatically granted a positive first reaction or impression in almost every interaction. Obviously an individual can take personal actions that shed or counteract white privilege, but that is the exception.

    The fact remains that white privilege is not related to “superiority” or “wealth” or social position. It’s just there, and operates to positively influence how people interact with each other.

    I see Lefty L. Is back on his white privilege kick.

    That a nd a few $$$ should buy some votes.

    White privilege got me a hoe, a field full of corn populated with cockleburrs and a good Dad who believed in manuel labor for his children.

    We did learn if we wanted to get ahead we had to earn it for outselves.

    Our votes were not bought and paid for. I have never seen a welfare check and I am 82 years old. Neither did we ever receive commodities. And I have never received an unemployment check. If I lost a job, I went looking for a better one, and they were usually out there.

    If you live in the USA you are privileged period and I don't care what color you are. Help for the handicapped and everyone else should earn his. To blazes with the Socislist/Communist way of the left in this country. They have created 3rd generation welfare families and all it has brought is crime and more poverty. A hand up and no handouts should be the way the system works.

    Help the poor in this country by turning the Leftist Democrats out to pasture and create jobs for people to earn their way.

  • It is absolutely astounding that you cannot or will not grasp the concept of white privilege.

    It has nothing to do with how poor you were, how hard you worked, or how many miles you walked to school in the snow.

    This has nothing to do with self image, motives, etc., it's skin color.

    It can't get any more straightforward.

    Mr. VanGennip, are you white? (I'll go out on a limb and answer for him.)

    Yes.

    There are 7 billion People living on this spinning rock called Earth , only 328 million of them live in America .

    It is a privilege just to live in America no matter age, sex, religion, or race . No one deserves to be treated special for any of these reasons no matter who they are .

    The excuse or claims of "white privilege" are racism creations and promotions , no different then black lives matter more then any other form of life .

    The Civil War , the slaves were offered 160 free acres after they were Freed , check out President Abraham Lincoln's Homestead Act on May 20, 1862 which gave citizens or future citizens up to 160 acres of public land provided they live on it , improve it . Most of the homesteads were west of the Mississippi River.

    I have no guilt feelings, and I do not intend wearing a Leftist political white privilege label. The labeling BS is a Leftist thing. True, I know more whites than I do blacks, but have had some great black friends and some just business acquaintenaces.

    One of most recent was hiring a black contractor to remove some office cubicles so new carpeting could be installed on a recommendation. He brought his two sons with him to help. The 16 year old was the most impressive kid of any color I have dealt with in ages.

    That Father did the best job of preparing his sons to deal with life under adverse conditions (inner city) I know of. I didn't contract with him because he was black, I didn't even think about not contracting because he was black. I contracted with him because someone said he was good and he knew how those things came apart and I did not.

    When I have the need you can bet I will contract with them again.

    "I have no guilt feelings, and I do not intend wearing a Leftist political white privilege label."

    I don't have any "guilt feelings" either. And sorry, it's not a label, it's just a fact that you live with.

    Last example...

    You or I walk down a street and pass strangers going in the opposite direction. People's reactions range from neutral to friendly and are generally positive, without hints of suspicion.

    Your black contractor walks down the same street an hour later meeting a similar group of strangers. Reactions range from neutral to mild suspicion, possibly mild hostility or nervousness. Women may clutch their purses a bit tighter.

    The minor differences in those scenarios are because of white privilege.

    Believe whatever you like, it changes nothing.

  • Mr. Braswell,

    “Pretty much destroyed your opinion that only “hillbillies” were left to vote Trump.”

    I had not mentioned “hillbillies.” What I mentioned is that actual “rednecks” are probably Trump voters. But I also said that all Trump voters are not “rednecks,” (for example my daughter who will hopefully come to her senses before November.) And I actually don’t know any “rednecks” here in my area.

    And why would I want to see anyone in “chains?”

    However, the groups left that are willing to vote for Trump are rapidly shrinking.

    "And sorry, it's not a label, it's just a fact that you live with."

    Judgements and critiques are made about a lot of things and people.

    "White Privilge" is an invented label from the left for their own purpose.

    Sorry but I won't wear it simply because you think you can apply it.

    The privileges I enjoy have been earned. I invested over my working years and that leaves me secure. I retired and got out of the next generations way. On the other hand we have a contributer here who works at an extended age not because he needs to do it, he says but it makes him feel good, his words not mine. Now is that need or is it selfish and shows greed. Why wouldn't you leave the job for a younger man trying to feed a family.

    Just my thoughts

  • Mr. VabnGennip,

    "...who works at an extended age not because he needs to do it..."

    As usual your ability to draw invalid conclusions from available information is still in gear. What’s amusing is that in fact I stepped down from my last two full time jobs, in order to allow fellow employees to step up and avoid the possibility of them being laid off.

    Furthermore, my current part time job is one that productively contributes to the growth of the companies project base, thereby keeping the crews more gainfully employed and on the job. I have willingly been involved in training others to take over my job when that becomes necessary or at any appropriate time.

    I’m sure that this information will permit you to rest easier from now on. It’s really none of your business, but it’s not a big deal.

Then they ran 30 Candidates that nobody cares about. Then went about ignoring 2020, this time putting their faith behind Impechment. Failed again. Back to 2020, it came to two old men. A Marxist and Alzheimer patient, the DNC went with the Alzheimer patient. Now back to ignoring 2020 and focus on COVID-19 and BLM. And even though the Alzheimer patient is in a basement in Scranton, they have declared victory in May. Six months before the Election actually happens.

    So the Supreme Court ruled against the President again today , they ruled no man is above the Law including a President . Ironically , the 2 Conservatives he chose for the Court voted against him too .

    His response ? The same 'ol typical , "It's a witch hunt and a hoax" . By the Supreme Court this time , ggeezz...first it's the media , then the Democrats , and now the highest Court in the Lands

    The dude needs to find different excuses , those are getting old now ..

    Turtle: You might want to report the truth. The SCOTUS kicked the can down the road and gave it back to the lower courts so it's not a win for anyone - but good try just like any Democrat would do.

    Nice try , but , keep a crack of an open mind -- if that's even possible . The President is not omni-potent no matter how much you want or wish . This is a defeat for President Trump -- accept the fact , accept the truth . ..7-2 is a loss ..

    Supreme Court rules Manhattan prosecutor can access Trump financial records

    BY MELISSA QUINN

    UPDATED ON: JULY 9, 2020 / 4:52 PM

    Washington — The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that Manhattan's chief prosecutor can obtain troves of President Trump's business records and tax returns, a momentous defeat for the president in his efforts to shield his personal financial information from state investigators.

    The high court ruled 7-2 in favor of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who is conducting a criminal investigation into the president's business dealings and hush-money payments made to two women who allegedly had affairs with the president years before he was elected. Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, appointed to the high court by Mr. Trump, joined the majority, while Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented. The justices sent the dispute back to the lower courts for further proceedings.

    "Two hundred years ago, a great jurist of our Court established that no citizen, not even the President, is categorically above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority. "We reaffirm that principle today and hold that the President is neither absolutely immune from state criminal subpoenas seeking his private papers nor entitled to a heightened standard of need."

    See you were a Republican for 8 years - your posts now if I remember right is about 3 to 1 anti-Trump to anti-Obama. So you are a Democrat till Trump leaves office in Jan. 2025. A true Independent would post pro and con during a President's terms in office and not 100% negative....but hey you know that. Enjoy the next 4 years as a negative Democrat....sad to be just negative all the time.

    BTW, I usually only post pro-Trump when Democrats post mistruths about him or his policies. Good attempt at spinning and twisting - you learned from the best one at this Mr. Lettau.

    Now have a great day and I'll check back later today on these threads.

    I quested both Obama and Trump's action's and will the next too , just as I did the past , therefore I'm Independent , it's not the Party , it's the person's actions no matter the Political label behind their names . Perhaps you may be thinking of a Moderate , dunno . A person does not have to be a part time affiliated Party , for instance , when I questioned Obama this did not automatically make me Republican . Now when I question Trump , it does not make me automatically a Democrat. That's not what I call or consider an Independent , that's what I consider using my Constitutional 1st Amendment Rights , the Free Right to question Government without reprisals .

    So , daily , I question this President's -- who is Government -- actions if I see fit , it is my Free Right and everyday you highly defend this President which is your Free Right per the Constitution 1st Amendment , Freedom of Speech . There is no winner , just daily arguments , shooting barbs at each other , and most probably bad blood .

    So let's knock off the daily charade , I know how you feel and you know how I feel , let's call a truce and respect each other's Constitutional Rights...

    Well in colleges today white kids are taught "white guilt" and "white sham". They are driven to push thier sense of self hatred on other white people. And if they don't hate themselves, then they are a "racist" with too much "white privilege".
