The second night of the DNC was
somehow worse than the first

Joe Biden accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination in what might have been the most awkward, unexciting way possible.After a Democratic official announced that Biden had won a majority of the party’s delegates, the virtual event switched over to the high school library where Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, waited. This segment was obviously live because the transition was so clunky that viewers had to watch the two stand there smiling awkwardly while stringed confetti fell from the ceiling.But don’t worry. Democrats made sure to include prerecorded applause from multiple guests, switching back and forth

The whole thing had a creepy vibe about it with the chorus of repeating various phrases like something from a horror movie. I wasn't watching, but heard it as the roommate is a h-wood lib.

Happily I only watched the last 15 minutes of this convention and Biden's acception speech. When the camera focused on Sleepy Joe trying to get up out of his chair, they quickly panned away to clapping people, I thought he was going to fall over. Once he was on his feet they went back to Biden and to his "speech" which consisted of about 15 words. Doubt if he is capable of anything longer without getting confused. God help our Country if he gets elected. .

Maybe that’s why the Democrats are holding their convention in the nighttime so that not too many people will watch on TV thus allowing the leftist and liberal media to filter what when on, and put their usual pro leftist and liberal Democrat spin on the proceeding as they report it to the American people tomorrow, thus keeping the Biden under the covers scam going.

Who's going to watch this stuff unless you're a dedicated Democrat? If they hoped to pick up more votes, even swing some undecideds, this didn't do it.

Well, come on, how can any other DNC convention night compete with the Stephen Stills and Billy Porter outro of "For What It's Worth" (the DNC's new fight song)? Porter's Dracula cape spin just before he started singing was sublime and Stills haphazardly sliding through the video, Stratocaster ablazin' was full frontal South Park/Monty Python "with a message." I laughed till I cried. Stephen can still bust a move.

The Dems would do better to run episodes of "I Love Lucy" and "M*A*S*H" for two hours. Or, even better, run episodes of "Mr. Ed" and "Dennis the Menace." Now if they want a more Clinton theme to it, run "Designing Women." I would suggest "The Jeffersons" for an Obama themed convention, but George Jefferson was a capitalist, making his money legitimately by dry cleaning clothes. Obama got his money by sucking at the breasts of the taxpayers and book deals for books other people wrote. Ergo, "The Jeffersons" would not do for the Obamas.

FTA: "I cannot emphasize this enough: The production value of this event has been horrible. It’s a wonder anyone is taking it seriously." The GOP/Trump Campaign have much to do in this department themselves. I watched the second night of the "Real Joe Biden" recap. Better than #1, but still unwatchable. (Suggestions: Get rid of the third person, and use cuts from the convention for viewer context.) The honest truth is this touted Biden re-cap ought to be pulled if it can't be fixed pronto. If this is an indication of what the GOP Convention will look and sound like, it's disastrous.

I refuse to inflict dem dementia on myself but it sounds like dems are putting together a middle school level presentation of "Convention". As others have pointed out, Hollyweird is in their pocket and this pathetic mess is the best they can do? It is yet another reminder, at the worst possible time, that dems are incompetent. The evidence abounds but dems seem eager to prove it over and over. Parties hope to get a convention "bounce". Dems will be lucky not to get buried in a convention "ditch". Trump's "Apprentice" performance has proven he knows how to put on a show that resonates with people. Hopefully he has his experienced people engaged with the production of the Republican convention. Hopefully they keep the "stage" cleared of RINOs and the more hapless Republicans. We have some Barn Burner representatives. Let's use them to get the crowds fired up. The dems have shown how NOT to do a convention. Let's blow them out of the water.

Convention is an oxymoron in this case. Conventions are where people gather together for some purpose. This democrat disaster is an infomercial, consisting of pre-recorded talking points from people scattered in who knows where. Kind of like infomercials for the hottest new garden hose or repair tape, only those are more interesting!

I feel a twinge of guilt commenting on something I haven't seen (and wouldn't ever see; and couldn't be hired to see). Let's be charitable. Their fifteen minutes of fame is at three minutes and counting. When they think about it long and hard (if they're capable of sustained thought) they'll realize how silly they looked, touting the charms of Kamala Sutra and a senile old man.

In her Wednesday DNC convention speech, Hillary Clinton implied that a “foreign adversary” could sway the U.S. elections, and suggested that an electoral college victory without a corresponding popular vote win would render the victor’s election illegitimate. “Vote for honest elections, so we, not a foreign adversary, choose our president,” Clinton implored viewers. “And don’t forget, Joe and Kamala can win by three million votes and still lose–take it from me. So we need numbers [to be] overwhelming so Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory.” Since losing the 2016 election, Clinton has repeatedly implied that President Trump has colluded with Russia both during and after his election victory.

Michelle Obama famously said, “When they go low, we go high.” She should have reminded her husband before he gave his speech for the online Democrat convention. Standing in a room in Philadelphia, with the words “Writing the Constitution” over his right shoulder, Obama gave a speech that almost wholly ignored Biden, whom he’d ostensibly come to praise. Instead, Obama viciously attacked Trump and did a constitutional rewrite that allowed him to cast Trump as a constitutional threat. From the start, Obama was up to his old tricks. Even while he wanted to use the Constitution to challenge Trump, he couldn’t praise it.

Cindy McCain is going to bat for Joe Biden, lending her voice to a video set to air during Tuesday night’s Democratic National Convention programming focused on Biden’s close friendship with her late husband, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona. She’s just the latest Republican to join in the convention, after a number of notable GOP former elected officials — including former Ohio Gov. John Kasich — endorsed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on Monday night. It’s a continuation of a major theme that Democrats have pushed through the first night of the convention — an effort to broaden the party’s appeal to occasional Republicans and disaffected Trump voters.

The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows. One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.' Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The Curious Problem of Obesity

Posted by Magnante 8/19/2020 8:33:26 AM Post Reply
In a recent OpEd from The Guardian, author Larry Elliot opines on the frequency of obesity among low-income households in the U.K., and points out that the problem “in the U.S. mirrors that of the U.K.” Elliot goes on to proclaim, that, “there will be less obesity when people can afford to eat better.” The premise is that poor folks are victims of one injustice or another; in Elliot’s case, he claims they are unable to afford healthy food. This notion has been floating around for several years now, particularly as it relates to children, and is one that is frequently parroted by the left in America.
