Not saying that Biden can pull the rabbit out of his hat, but Iím worried enough that I might not have no in the stock market come October. If Biden wins I will save my self a major loss and when Trump wins Iíll just have cost myself some profits.

That answer is for Sabine, the $1,000.00 per point bet doesnít have any upside for me if Biden wins.

I have no desire to rub anyone face in anything. Friendly disagreement in the community is all. If you see it different I have no interest.
We on. My charity is wounded warrior. GS is our witness.

I'd agree with half of this.

There's things we don't want or need to know. But these things do make it to the public level nowadays.

I don't kiss *** and I hold grudges to a fault. I don't wanna hear about bounties and then see ventilators or other aid sent to the country in question or our POTUS begging to get them back in global level groups.

That's just me. I love my momma but if she ain't doing right being momma don't make her right.

Ignorance is bliss

This is not intended to be argumentative but rather discuss points of view.

Does anyone really believe that the Russians have our best interest in mind?? Does anyone believe they wanted the US to succeed in Afghanistan after they failed miserably? Paying bounties or not the Russians just like the Chinesse subsidize our enemies much like we have subsidized theirs.

It is reality. In no way am I trying to justify it. This doesn't make it right and I hate it as much as the next American but there isn't much we can do. At some point, we will need to inflict some pain to both the Russian and the Chinese governments. I would hope that it doesn't/wasn't going to get played all over the MSM.

Anyone want a side wager he makes an excuse when he loses and doesn't pay when Trump wins?

You better clarify, no excuses. But Biden won popular vote...or Trump rigged the election by xyz..

I believe that he is a man of his word and will contribute to the Wounded Warrior charity. Also, the election is easy, whoever wins the Electoral College, wins.
But, Dosrobles hasn't confirmed yet.

I hope the country is not as polarized as some people on TBH make it sound. Really, the Democrats are going to emp the United States?

George Bush is a democrat hack? 4 star generals that have fought for this country are all of a sudden liberals?

No matter what happens I pray that that this country finds a way to heal. I am a grown man and very capable of taking care of myself. My children have done everything that could be expected of them. A Dr., a rancher getting HER post graduate degree, and a young man on the Deans list at TCU headed to medical school. They deserve better then to inherit a country that has lost its faith and itís forgiveness. We call eachother names when we disagree, but we are too entitled to cover our face for other people. We should have been back to work 6 weeks ago, but we are to entitled to wear a little mask on our face and this ďmade upĒ virus continues to harm people and prevent our economic engine from starting.
Poverty will kill more people then Covid 19, but our selfish attitude will be the reason it happens.
People are more important than policy. I donít like either of our choices, but I love this country and I choose to be a part of the solution. Maybe if we quit listening to the news corporations that make more money creating division then they do reporting facts we would all be better off.

Wounded Warrior is awesome. I’m in. I could care less what the peanut gallery that has no skin in the game thinks, BUT, if you want to put it in an account now so I can’t “make excuses” I’m 100% good. Take it up to archery country in AUSTIN and let Tyler or Tank hold the money.

Now that's a load of hog wash. So you think if we all wore masks this virus would what? Just go away? It would still be here only flatten the curve even longer and make us all suffer even longer.

What am I missing?

How about if everyone ignored the media and let it spread to begin with we would have immunity and be done with it already. And no, the hospitals would not have been over run and we would not have all died.

I'm just here to remind people that you loose the coon hounds, loose the dogs of war, loose the beasts of hell.

It's impossible to loose an election.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Stop worrying. Polls mean very little.
Example:
The USA Today poll was conducted by Suffolk University June 25-29, with 1,000 registered voters nationwide -- including 345 Democrats and 287 Republicans -- questioned by live telephone operators. The surveyís overall sampling error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. The margin of error for the Democratic sample is plus or minus 5.3 percentage points; for the Republican sample it is 5.8 points.

See how it's skewed?

How are entitlement and a mask in any way related? Please explain what Iím entitled to if I donít wear a mask. So a mask is the high wire that our economy is teetering on? Do you honestly believe that?
Before the lock down we were told a mask wouldnít make a difference but now the mask is the golden bullet.
You canít stop a pandemic, we have to deal with it which means it has to run its course just like every other pandemic we have dealt with. All you are doing is kicking the can down the road and that doesnít even make sense Because the mortality rate doesnít warrant it.

Calling joe Biden a socialist is ridiculous lol. That dude is a full on capitalist. He has a public and private position just like everyone else.
