This format is significantly better than the debates held by TV networks. It's impossible to give a well-thought answer in 12 seconds.

Bernie could win, maybe pete


I disagree. I think if the Dems present a candidate that can motivate the base to get out and vote it won't matter.

We do agree however, on Biden not being that guy:

Read on Twitter


How is this man leading in the polls right now?

I am seriously thinking that this country, as we know it, is doomed.

An insider weighs in on Jeffrey Epstein's "suicide," as seen on Reddit:

ImperialBacon wrote:I’m a corrections officer. This should never have been possible. During the intake process due to the nature of his crimes and being famous he should have already been on special watch. Then after the first attempt he would have been in a special cell. He would be in what we call a “pickle suit” it’s a green suit that you can’t tear or tie to anything. His blankets would be the same material. He would only get hygiene products under supervision. Only thing allowed in his cell would be a book and court papers. Then we would be monitored more closely. This is a huge failing on the jail. I want a massive investigation on how this was able to happen.

Can't expect a legit investigation at this point with Barr's DOJ.
