    You gotta make money somewhere on top of the SS I guess. I'm self employed, I don't work for anyone.
    I get the gig, who's Rex?

    It doesn't matter to me whether Trump wins or not, well not that much, but I find it humorous that they are doing everything to make it happen. Trump is only unpopular in the polls if you read CNN too much, lol. His ratings match Obama and have for awhile... Based on that, he's a serious contender in any run-off. Anyway, it's kinda weird to compare past presidents... If you compare him to other political leaders (say Pelosi, Schumer, and crew) he's got more than 8 points of approval above any of them. Probably, that is a more relevant number.

    I listened to a bit of what Pelosi has to say, and,
    if "lies" are things a person just makes up, that
    cannot in any way be demonstrated to be true,
    she will rapidly eclipse Trump. Which is not easy.

    Seriously? Just take money form one pocket, and
    put it in the other.

    She makes me worry about the Democratic party. She is a symptom of the kind of thinking that Hillary was a good candidate.

    Policies are more important than what someone says when it comes to voting.

    Now you're starting to understand why and how Trump got elected. Congrats.

    I dislike Pelosi, but I don't know that she's worse than Hillary.
    Newbies like Cortez appear to portend a turn for the worse.
    We shall see if she ever morphs into someone useful.

    If only that were true. When it comes to elections image is very important. Hillary's bad image is one of the reasons we are stuck withTrump.
    I am talking about the general perception of the public. Hillary did not care so well when it came to That and Pelosi may paint her party with the same b rush.

    Hillary and democratic policies were the lesser of 2 evils if you're in the middle class. It's all about policy.


    The perception that Hillary was a terrible candidate was manufactured intensively by RW operatives and Russia.
    Policies are more important. The presidency is a leadership position, policies are shaped in congress typically. Trump isn't a leader, he's a failed businessman who whines like a baby when he doesn't get his way.

    I don't really know what Pelosi's image is with the public.
    Sure, sure, rightish folk dislike her. But she's popular enuf
    to retain & wield great power. She can't be hated all that much.

    You will have to vote for her first in order to find out what she stands for.

    I am a little surprised you are not more of a fan of AOC. According to what you have said in the past your biggest criticism of Clinton was her support for Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Cortez has a foreign policy that I would have thought you would appreciate.

    Interesting economic philosophy. Let me ask you this. If we are having lunch together, and I ask you if you want to trade half your sandwich for my granola bar and you say yes, does that mean you work for me, or do I work for you?

    And why would the answer be different if the trade involves currency?
