Predictable......first but not the last.

 

 

 

NOTRE DAME STATEMENT

 

University of Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., announced today the University has withdrawn as the host site for the first of the 2020 presidential debates, scheduled for Sept. 29.

 

After consultation with Dr. Mark Fox, St. Joseph County deputy health officer, and with the unanimous support of the Executive Committee of the University’s Board of Trustees, Father Jenkins made what he called “this difficult decision because the necessary health precautions would have greatly diminished the educational value of hosting the debate on our campus.” In a letter earlier today to the Notre Dame community, Father Jenkins said that “the inevitable reduction in student attendance in the debate hall, volunteer opportunities and ancillary educational events undermined the primary benefit of hosting — to provide our students with a meaningful opportunity to engage in the American political process.”

 

He concluded by saying that “despite this decision, I hope we will all remain attuned to the many important issues facing our nation during this election year — and, please, let’s exercise our right and privilege to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 3.”

Biden is a capable and experienced politician. Note that NOT ONE PERSON in the Obama/Biden administration was prosecuted. THere were no major scandals. Biden knows how to act and whom to ask to help him solve problems. Trump is a dumb shit that is most often wrong and surrounds himself with brown nosers. lickspittles and asskissers.

Wake up, That whole administration was corrupt. Lying and deflecting was their business.

I cannot imagine why any governor would want the GOP convention. Maybe Wyoming. 

Interesting Trump holds it in a very democratic city.  Because he needs the draw.  Billing Wyoming would get him twelve people and three cows.

Likely no debate on Sept 29th now?

 

Dems are winning big time, in the game of...keeping Biden away from public microphones so undecided voters can NOT experience his dementia in action.

This is a nice example of Tangential Thinking by Xavier. Exhibiting rather disordered thinking, moving from one thought to another unrelated thought, yet never getting to the main point. In this case, the thoughts are somewhat connected but in a superficial or tangential way.  You might want to look into a regiment of Thioxanthenes for your condition before it's too late. Otherwise, an ugly doggie might invade your every thought and drive you sane.

This is a great opportunity for another school to have the honor.  

 

It seems rather irresponsible of Notre Dame to pull out at this late date.

They have an obligation.

If I were a governor, I would be HAPPY and PROUD to crowd all the Republicans in the state into an arena.  

It would be an INCREDIBLE honor.....  😎

I think keeping the candidate away from the mike is a brilliant strategy.

Republicans are too stupid to utilize it, eh?....and they need that strategy BADLY at this point.

I have to laugh at the idea of a Republican claiming Dems are keeping Biden away from a microphone.

 

Can anybody say HYDROCHLOROQUINE?   😆

I'm envisioning Melania walking around in a gown on the dirt floor in the largest rodeo arena in Cheyenne!!!!

 

Of course, Melania and Donald would follow their life patterns and wallow in the dirt shortly after arriving.

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.


  • By teacher

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.


  • By teacher

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 


  • By teacher

    Kidding me?
