    Between the support the trials are garnering for Trump, and the pro-Hamas-terrorist cosplay amongst our college youth, at this point I see a Trump victory as a very likely outcome in this election.

    For Trump to be reelected, by the man's own admission, is to usher in an Authoritarian Dictatorship. I have done what little I can do with the time and energy constraints I work under these days to be part of the Resistance. It's all about blocking access to power for this clueless wanna be Dictator and encouraging our young to immigrate out of the US where there still is hope, where there still may be a future. Given the student debt nightmare, America really does not deserve nor has earned retaining it's young - they'd do better elsewhere. Thankfully it is far from rare for Gen Z to know this - they didn't drink the Cool Aid.

    At any rate, my point tried to be that I'm not guilty should the Evil Monster/Wanna Be Dictator be reelected. Rob

    Given that closing arguements are said to be taking place next week, we may soon get a verdict in the Hush Money Trial. Should it be guilty, I have an outfit picked out and I will be making a coconut based spicy chickpea stew and I'll take a PTO day if I can wrangle it to celebrate with neighbors. Certainly a guilty verdict followed by long overdue nasty consequences further weighing the Orange Goon down with yet another appeal is worth a celebration!!!

    My take is that it's 50/50 - but remember, if the verdict is not guilty, take heart anyway. Should DJT get away with his numerous crimes that you or I would rot in prison for, this is only more long term ammunition for this country to split up, something it sorely needs to do at this point. So it's not a complete loss should DJT continue to circumvent the US legal system - his skating only plants more seeds for an eventual split up of this country. Rob

    Noone really deserves this shit (living under trump), but half the voting county are horrific assholes, so we will get it. But no you'll never convince me the decent people somehow "deserved it" just because of the assholes. One could make the case for a not-Biden candidate, but there aren't any, one can not make the case for Trump, people forget how bad it was. They have the memory of houseflies.

    If I were a betting man I could put a few bucks on 55/1 odds for Haley, figuring if Don had some big health issue she would be a shoe in. He's looked a little stressed in some of the trial news features. I see he's said something about a requirement that Biden take a drug test before the debate. I'd be asking both for a mental evaluation for competency.

    Mainstream news reporting of the polls says that if he losses his trial(s) and convicted of a felony, he will lose quick a few percentages of popularity. I'm not holding my breath for that.

    I think you may be right. It seems the only trial with much chance of concluding before the election is Bragg’s, which is probably the weakest. Trying to parlay misdemeanors into felonies by way of the election laws seems like the sort of ramshackle scaffolding that will certainly be appealed. And even if not, he wouldn’t be the first presidential candidate to run from prison. So far, it seems to be helping him more than hurting.

    Despite his best lies and arguments to the contrary, he hasn’t been able to sell himself as an economic savior.

    Gaza was always going to be a no-win for him and no amount of smoke and mirrors were going to save him there.
