I wonder how many people who actually will vote this year are  undecided.

In Kiplinger magazine they list various proposals of the two candidates for changes in the tax law.  The President want to create a $4000 tax credit for domestic travel, which I suppose means vacations in the US. That is quite possibly the dumbest idea I've ever heard.

He wants to have the taxpayers in general pay for the domestic vacations of taxpayers?  Will more people go on vacation? Only someone who owns hotels and golf courses could think of that idea.

This is a priority?  Geez, what an idiot.

 

I am starting to wonder who will be speakers at the RNC Convention next week.  I haven't seen a schedule yet.

Do you think that former President Bush will want to speak and give a ringing endorsement of President Trump?  

Will certain House and Senate Republicans want to do the same? 

I think that some will want to speak to set themselves up for 2024.  But at the same time, do they want to give a glowing speech endorsing President Trump?  That may come back to haunt them.

I’ll assume the Bush question is rhetorical. No shot.

Perhaps Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and Sarah Palin along with Dabo Sweeney and Ed Orgeron. Since he tweets from the grave, don’t count out Herman Cain. 

Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham were scheduled, but their mouths will be busy tossing 45’s salad. 

Today, the President attacked Goodyear Tire and Rubber, an American company.  He called for boycotting that company.

I wonder how the 62,000 employees of Goodyear, many located in Akron, Ohio (a swing state) will react?  If I were advising the Democrats, I'd have Joe Biden show up at Goodyear with John Kasich as soon as possible.

The couple from Missouri who pointed the gun at the BLM protesters are speaking according to a headline anyway

Maybe the Gov. of Florida, perhaps Sen. Scott, maybe Ben Carson.  Certainly not George W. Bush, nor Romney.  I wonder if Mrs. Trump will speak.  She may be required to as part of the pre-nup.

Maybe Dick Cheney...he could talk about the benefits of government paid health care (for his heart transplant at age 71) or the safe use of firearms while quail hunting.

Or Roger Stone or Paul Manafort could talk about friendship and pardons.

As an Ohioan I made sure to point this out to those on the fence (how could they be?) and to shame those voting for Trump.

Cannot say it is actually great or even that good really- but I watched it a million times as a kid so have affection for it.  It was in constant rotation on HBO, Showtime and The Movie Channel in the 80s

I'll say that it is great.  The best of the Arthurian movies, in my opinion.  Great casting with some awesome actors in it:  Gabriel Byrne, Liam Neeson, Helen Mirren, Patrick Stewart, and an outstanding performance by Nicol Williamson.  

One of the earliest films to use the now-overly-used Carmina Burana, and it does it so well.

A full story of King Arthur and his knights, from beginning to end, including the Grail quest.

Lots of memorable quotes:

"Look upon this moment. Savor it! Rejoice with great gladness! Great gladness! Remember it always, for you are joined by it. You are One, under the stars. Remember it well, then... this night, this great victory. So that in the years ahead, you can say, 'I was there that night, with Arthur, the King!' For it is the doom of men that they forget."

"Looking at the cake is like looking at the future, until you've tasted it what do you really know? And then, of course, it's too late."

"Come, Father.  Let us embrace at last."

I'm so afraid Trump is going to steal this election.

 

The fact that we cannot have a new Coronavirus stimulus package because he refuses to fund the post office should be so putrid to so many that the sheer volume of disgust washes him out of office.  Yet not a dent in the polls.  His tweet this morning about voting twice by mail is untrue but also so perverse in its desire to suppress the vote and pre-invalidate the outcome.  

The cowards in the Republican Party who know better should all also be seen as full-on traitors to this country.

Like everything that he says, it is intellectually bankrupt. His premise is that only democrats would vote twice and cheat. 

I guess the BS republican cheating in North Carolina recently  was in one of Dump’s intel reports he fails to even read.

Numerous reports on the political shows this morning of how he and his lawyers are already planning to challenge results in key battleground states.

He has cheated at everything in life he could.  He would cheat.  Republicans did just cheat.  It is his (and their) warped minds that believe because they do it, Democrats must.

What kind of people are living amongst us?

From Forbes:

KEY FACTS

57% of Republicans said the number of coronavirus deaths is acceptable, while 67% of independents and 90% of Democrats said the number of deaths is “not acceptable.”

Republicans also felt coronavirus deaths are being over counted, with 64% saying deaths are actually “fewer than reported.”

A vast majority of Republicans, 73%, also said the way the U.S. is dealing with the coronavirus pandemic is “going well,” while 62% of all voters said the response is “going badly."

_________

What number would they find unacceptable? 300,000, 400,000 who knows?

Did you move to Texas? 

I have a feeling you can thank ex-Californians for that. Once they get fed up and leave they want to introduce other states to their way of doing things is what I hear.

goign to be moving to a suburb of Dallas.

and no, I was thinking specifically about a certain green bud.  Surely one can't blame californians for making the bud very illegal in Tx
