FWIW we are celebrating my Grandpas 96th birthday today - and while his physical health has greatly diminished this year - mentally he is sharp as a whip.
My Father in law is 74 and still banking - still very sharp mentally as well. (Also lifelong repub)

Peddle your ageism elsewhere please


(Oh and my grandpa is a life long Repub, and a hero to many in the farming industry)

My wife and I have had serious conversations about moving someplace warm in the USA, there are some challenges with that and our tax system.

We feel alienated in Canada because of the elite left that know soooo much better than everyone else. There is one Province in Canada that shares our political views and that's Alberta, Alberta sits on one of the larges oil reserves on the planet and the federal government won't let them get it out of the ground, and therefore they are being crippled economically for it.

You are absolutely ridiculous. I'm not talking about your dad or your relatives. I hope that are all doing well and lead long, productive lives. I'm speaking of the dementia patient running for president, Joe Biden.

Stick to the topic.

Go peddle your stupidity and what-about-ism elsewhere.

Sage observation, Joe-T.
As you mention, elections are decided by the people who show up, but also by the ones who don't. There are single-issue or pigeon-hole voters out there for whom if none of the candidates is strongly pro or con on their issue, they don't have a reason to vote. And their abstention makes the votes of those of who do vote, count a little more, proportionately.

I'm sure he is a lot smarter than libs on this board, mainstream media, and the Dem party. They have all stumbled at every turn (like you)

I realized this long ago that's why your gyrations don't do anything but amuse me. It's free entertainment and a great divergence from the challenges at work.

Many thanks!!

Good for your Grandpa and Father in law.... but they're not running for POTUS. My father passed away almost 2 years ago, at 82, from Alzheimer's . 6 months before he passed, he made more sense than Joe Biden does today

My dad was a lifelong Democrat, Irish Catholic, blue collar union worker from Boston. He wouldn't vote for Biden (or Hillary) when he was alive, but he may now that he's dead

Democrats are still in denial as to what happened in 16' so they will never be able to move forward. Once again, they champion the established horse from the machine because that's what they're told to do. And so weak is the field that the only viable challenge to the incumbent is a radical socialist ... And they can't process that issue either! At one point there were what, 36 canidates? Lmao!!!

So rather than offer any type of fix, they bemoan the problems, of which many they created themselves, and look to change the rules of the game they can't win! Akin to children stomping their feet and holding their breath.

Anyways, certainly not counting eggs before they hatch, like Clinton did in 16' by having her cabinet all selected and laid out some 10 weeks before the election, I would venture that Trump will once again decimate the field. Problem for the Democrats is they've pissed so many people off, that Trump just might wind up with flipping a bunch of Dem held seats to the Republican side, lol.

So relax until November, because everything from now until then is just noise... Biden loses and Sanders won't get the support he needs to top the ticket.

If all of the speculation is correct here, Biden will continue to slide in a very public fashion....it's sad on a couple of fronts.....sad to watch Biden's cheese sliding off of his cracker and really sad that the dems think that this is a good idea with a good outcome regardless of the outcome of the election.

So what? I am able to separate accomplishments from character. I thought Clinton was a fairly good president in spite of his character and getting a blow job in the oval office.

If I have a heart attack I want the best surgeon. I don't care if he kicks his dog 4 days a week and cheats on his wife the other 3. LIBS are not bright enough to see this.
