  1. Today
  2. An interesting difference between Biden and Trump:
  3. Last week
  4. According to The Motley Fool, that well known barometer of public opinion, the S&P500 Index, seems impressed by Biden's choice: https://www.fool.com/investing/2020/08/12/sp-500-rallies-47-points-on-dem-pick-for-vice-pres/ Edit Update: More analyses from two media outlets that are as far removed from "left wing media" as it's possible to get without straying into far right wing nutjob territory (ie Breitbart, The Herald Sun, etc.) From CNBC: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/11/joe-biden-vp-pick-wall-street-executives-are-happy-about-kamala-harris.html The Wall Street Journal: https://www.wsj.com/articles/kamala-harris-has-taken-on-wall-street-wall-street-doesnt-seem-to-mind-11597254609
  5. I feel like even FoxNews has disavowed her at this point.
  6. Then FoxNews would've been deliriously happy with his pick
  7. Something interesting I noticed. As soon as Harris was announced as the VP pick, every commentator on MSNBC was talking about how she was the best pick, and how they wanted her to the the VP pick for the last year. Strange. I don't remember hearing any of that before today. I strongly suspect that anyone that Biden picked would have instantly been "The best possible choice he could have made", and "I was hoping he would have picked her all along". The possible exception is if Biden would have picked Sarah Palin.
  8. I know that both party's conventions will be completely different affairs to the hoopla of past years, but if Mary Trump isn't the #1 pick as guest speaker at the Democrat's convention then the Dem's really aren't doing their job.
  9. No surprises as to the identity of one of the first people outside of political circles to endorse Biden's pick:
  10. I think Rice would have been far better. Kamala is not very likable to me.
  11. ...but oh well. Anyone other than Trump still holds.
  12. I agree. To be fair, it looks like the site just launched in June maybe. Also, I think they are specifically targeting traditional party candidates and not independent candidates. It's kind of the whole point of the site, in my opinion. Have friendly discussions and debates from members of our two major parties that can highlight the differences on issues as well as where there is common ground. For example, I think this is a good example of what the site really aspires to be. You have to watch each video but the candidates go back and forth in short, concise videos that just about anyone could digest. And again, my favorite part of the site I think might be that there are no discussion areas, no like buttons, etc. I hope the site takes off. It does have Captain America as one of its founders, so there's a chance.
  13. An interesting idea. I can see it working for unaffiliated independent candidates. The "Party" system have their own methods as tired and hackneyed as they are in the digital age. However it needs to gain a critical mass of viewers to really change anything. Whether it gains that mass is another matter altogether. I guess if enough candidates eschew the traditional mass media and all start using it, it may become a valuable platform. Lets' face it though, you seem like a pretty engaged guy, abreast of what's happening locally, nationally and internationally, and you've only just discovered it. How long will it take for the masses, particularly the politically disengaged to discover it and actually use it for its intended purpose. Watch this space I guess - see what happens.
  14. I can't believe I had never heard of this site sooner. It's an awesome concept. https://www.astartingpoint.com/ Maybe the best part about the site is there are no comments or discussion areas, no likes, and no shares. Just politicians talking about issues from both sides of the aisle.
  15. Pathetic. You really don't know how to read a room do you?
  16. Earlier
  17. For all of you fans of Divi, make sure you have run their most recent update. https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2020/08/critical-vulnerability-exposes-over-700000-sites-using-divi-extra-and-divi-builder/
  18. To be fair, Mary's book has a much broader audience. Nevertheless, I hope that gets under his skin.
  19. I agree with @Wunderkind. I'm not sure this one will ever get through to people. They believe what they want to believe.
  20. There is no bounce rate in Google. Simple as that.
  21. Those clickbait headlines in the search results drive me nuts. Clearly they work or so many people wouldn't be using them though. Wild that they have been around that long.
  22. Ha! When I need to get work done, I tell myself "Don't Do It!". My favorite is "Don't drink that beer until you're finished with your work!" Yes, these ads are very effective. We see it in IM a lot, too. "Don't buy this until ... " Usually an affiliate with a bonus. Weird how the human mind works. We have to read reviews before we buy something, but just seeing something that says 'don't', first, we are whippin' out our credit card.
