LMAO. Mayor Pete told the truth about Trump being a draft dodger and Twitz called out his dogs to trash him with homophobic slurs online. That was predictable...

His bone spur medical deferment was temporary. Ultimately, he received a high lottery number, 356 out of 365.

He really does follow Trump very religiously.

Explain what there is to apologize for?

He has a brash demeanor. I'll give you that. 

It's more about the injustice and people spreading bovine fertilizer for me.

Not so sure it's 7 languages and a couple of them are essentially the same or close.

Fact is that he's a very smart guy who expresses himself in a way that few can.

He's got a problem though and it's one that for the time being can't be overcome. The good news is that Pete is young and has plenty of time to win the hearts and minds of at least a portion of the nations so called religious right an ultra conservatives.

The mission at hand__defeating Trump, retaking the Senate or both will require candidates that are attractive to Dems, Indy's and a decent share of R's.  Mayor Pete fails this test.

Hi Realtime,
If Buttigieg can produce an agenda that is solid enough for All of America without riding South Bend's *awesome recovery?

*The same recovery that all of us in the rust belt have experienced without his help.
If he can sell an agenda that the educated in America can see as intelligent and helpful for this country (all of this country), he's a sure fire winner.

In my opinion; in this day and age his being Gay can work for him as well as JFK'S being Catholic and Obama's being Black worked for them.
That's my opinion anyway.

I wish I had the time to be a daily poster here, or back on Topix. But I just don't. I try to read as much as I can here and other places.
That said I give a shoutout to Teaman. As much as I detest his politics a part of me understands them and he's always been a civil netizen, Hi Teaman.

Take care all     
Jimmy

Good to see you Jimmy, hows all in Jamestown?

Well, it's now being reported, and as was predicted by many, the fabulous Trump tax cut is not paying for itself__not even close.

True. Although revenues increased, they never cut spending.

Other than being one of the wettest years I can remember Jamestown is doing OK.
They opened the National Comedy Center last year (which is fitting) :) and three new Hotels in the immediate area.
And at least a dozen new mom and pop bars and restaurants.

Where I live; Lakewood which is a suburb, Cummins Engine is going gangbusters and the same for The Southern Tier Brewing company, they've got some great brews and they are national/international now. Not sure if they've made it down to your way yet but if they have at least try an IPA, good stuff.
 
People learned to use tourism up here once the industrial age died, it had nothing at all to do with the Orange ones tax cuts. Actually his tax cuts hurt the majority of his followers, but I guess it's human nature to live and learn.

The weather is really messing with my riding and general lake stuff though.

Other than all that we probably still have more Rebel flags than you do, and of course the usual influx of migrant workers from Puerto Rico, who are taking all the jobs from the flag wavers.
God I can't wait till they Build That Wall! so they can stop the Puerto Ricans and find something new to cry about. LOL

PS: most all of the PR's come in on a plane but don't tell my neighbors

Likewise, Teaman.

Lady that works at the post office told me Puerto Rico was in Mexico when I was mailing a package there. I said no it's an island and she said in Mexico right. I just said yes, so I guess the wall will keep the
Puerto Ricans out.

Sometimes you just have to smile and shake your head.

I was watching the local news when I was posting the other night. The AFL-CIO and a few NYC politicians are trying to push a bill to unionize farm help here. If they succeed it will be the end of every small farm in the state.

Anyway, our local news based in Buffalo sent a roving reporter out to gather public opinion. They managed to find a yokel with about 5 maybe 6 teeth and he did his best to explain how those illegal Puerto Ricans were asking for more money than they were worth and that is why the wall is so important!

I've heard several versions of the same story at different times from different people, this guy was dead serious.

I've got to say, the characters in the South Park cartoons ain't got nothin' on us Western New Yorkers.
