  1. An interesting difference between Biden and Trump:
  2. 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
  3. Then FoxNews would've been deliriously happy with his pick
  4. 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.
  5. No surprises as to the identity of one of the first people outside of political circles to endorse Biden's pick:
  6. 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.
  7. Pathetic. You really don't know how to read a room do you?
  8. In case you didn't know, Mr Schwarz is the man that ghost-wrote The Art Of The Deal.
  9. An atheist is out walking in the forest. Such a stunning day! The green trees! The blue skies! The bubbling brook! The rustling of the ... actually what is that rustling? He looks around to see a huge grizzly bear emerge from the bushes just behind him. In an instant, the bear has covered the ground between them, knocked the atheist to the ground and is just bringing his mighty jaws down with the clear intent of crushing the atheist's skull like a grape. All the atheist can do is to moan out a strangled, "Oh my God". Time stops. The bear freezes. The forest falls silent, as the clouds part and a bright light shines right down upon him. A voice now comes from the heavens: "You! You deny my existence for decades and ridicule all others who say I exist. And now, only when you need me to save you, do you even utter my name with anything other than derision. Can you really expect me to help you? And if I do, can I count on you to be a believer for the rest of your days?" The atheist looks directly into the light and says, "Lord, you're right. Even in these extreme circumstances, it would be hypocritical of me to become a Christian, but ... but perhaps you could at least make the bear a Christian?" There is a pause, as God in his heaven reflects. And then He speaks again: "Very well." The light disappears, and again the brook bubbles, the rabbits run free and life resumes as normal. And now the bear stills his crushing jaws to bring his massive paws together, bow his head and say, "Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive, and for which I am truly thankful."

  10. We don't muck about in Australia,
  11. Sometimes a typo is a beautiful thing.
  12. Neo-Nazis, Confederacy nuts, whackaloons on every side and from every angle are easily ignored. However the return of bell bottoms will see uprisings around the globe from everyone who wears pants*. AUX ARMES, CITOYENS!!!! * Claude stopped reading at this point.
