If Gore wouldn't have completely distanced himself from Clinton, he likely would have won imo.

Edit: I forgot how close 2000 was. If Gore would have won New Hampshire, he would have won the election.
Or if Ralph Nader hadn't run Gore would have won FL.

It doesn’t matter who runs as a Democrat, they will be a radical leftist no matter what :shrug:

I don't get this web3 nonsense. Sounds like just way to make you part with your bitcoin and exist in a cartoon world. No thanks.

Yeah, it's how do we monetize the internet again (selling customer data and targeted ads is sunsetting I think). So how do we create new opportunities for people to spend money surfing the web.

Dems need to find another Obama type. You gotta get younger and witty. These old **** or pandering picks like Hilary and probably Kamala soon are not the answer IMO.

Meh, the older I get, the higher I think the voting age should be. Young people don't know s**t.

I think the age to vote for a federal office should be the same age to occupy that office. So we'll let you vote for a Representative (but only a Representative) starting at 25. At 30 you get to vote for Senator, and at 35 you finally get to vote for President.

Okay so let’s use that same logic when buying a gun or joining the military.

Voting tends to skew older anyway, and is likely the reason we are where we are today, where our country is essentially a gerontocracy.

You'd be disenfranchising the younger block even more than currently.

Dear Taliban,

You wanted to run the country. Deal with it your own damn selves.

Administrative leave = paid vacation. Only a cop could eff something up this bad and still pull a paycheck during a subsequent "investigation."

The thumbnail is provocative, as they do, but as with most headlines that ask a question the answer is always no. The video is pretty neutral.

They should prosecute Trump. He’s not having apple sauce brain like Reagan was when he could have been charged. This guy is still full on ahole and understands what he’s done. The message should be sent that coup attempts will not be tolerated.
