Did Biden just insinuate that his VP pick is Spartacus? or maybe even BarackHussein?

How about one of those trans-gendered athletes? You know, the former males who identify as female so they can win lots of medals? Of course they still have all their male bits. One of them would be perfect. Then Joe can go trans-gendered himself, and become a mother. I can't wait.

Voters need to realize that Biden's VP pick is the real democrat presidential nominee. Old Joe won't last more than a year if he's elected. It's just another smoke screen by the socialists.

Stacy Abrams was at the buffet stuffing her face with food when she heard the news from Biden. Through her gapped teeth, spewing food she was chewing on yelled, "pick me Joe, pick me Joe". We all know where this is going Joe is just running interference for the next (hoping to be) democrat, progressive, socialist, communist president except Joe won't make it to the finish line next year.

Oh, Hannah! Now I know Slow Joe has lost the last of his marbles. At the very least, he understands fully that he can't win this election and has tossed all his effort into the leftist pile of crap. He is now pandering the the left as never before. He has left reality behind and offers his soul up to the crazies. Trump will stick to reality and stomp Slow Joe into the mud he came from. Joe seems to realize that now.

More than a dozen children in Spain have been diagnosed with "werewolf syndrome" after an error resulted in medicine used to treat alopecia and hair loss being sold as heartburn medicine for children, according to local media reports from El País and Granada Hoy. The Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices confirmed the outbreak of hypertrichosis, commonly known as "werewolf syndrome," to El País Wednesday after 17 cases were reported by parents in three regions in Spain.

After walloping the Caribbean as a tropical storm, Hurricane Dorian is forecast to hit somewhere along the east coast of Florida this weekend. And forecasters warn that Dorian could be a treacherous storm. Along much of Florida’s east coast, as the storm approached, shoppers rushed to stock up on food and emergency supplies at supermarkets and hardware stores and picked the shelves clean of bottled water. Lines formed at service stations as motorists topped off their tanks and filled gasoline cans. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency for 26 counties in Dorian's possible path and said he

Elizabeth Warren supporters believe she

ST. PAUL, Minnesota — A growing number of Democratic primary voters believe Elizabeth Warren can beat President Trump, even as the liberal firebrand's appeal in critical Rust Belt battlegrounds remains questionable. The Massachusetts senator is a culturally liberal Harvard Law professor who could have difficulty undercutting the president’s key advantage among the conservatively inclined white working class and rank-and-file union members. But the college-educated suburban Democrats at the heart of Warren’s burgeoning support, and festive, overflow campaign rallies, aren’t simply making political statements or expressing opposition to front-runner Joe Biden. They are becoming firm believers in her electability. In interviews

WASHINGTON — Racism in America is an institutional "white man's problem visited on people of color," Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday, arguing that the way to attack the issue is to defeat President Donald Trump and hold him responsible for deepening the nation's racial divide. (Snip) "White folks are the reason we have institutional racism," Biden said. "There has always been racism in America. White supremacists have always existed, they still exist." He added later that in his administration, it would "not be tolerated." By highlighting the nation's racial tensions and placing blame on Trump, Biden is showing that he

The income tax is the Swiss Army Knife of the U.S. tax system, an all-purpose policy tool for raising revenue, rewarding and punishing activities and redistributing money between rich and poor. (Snip) Democrats are eager to tap that mountain of wealth to finance priorities such as expanding health-insurance coverage, combating climate change and aiding low-income households. Their ideas range from new rules on inherited assets, to a plan by Sen. Ron Wyden for annual taxes on unrealized gains, to a proposal from Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s to tax wealth itself. These come atop more conventional proposals to raise income taxes and
