    Hard to believe but the presidential race is still very,very close.

    If Biden can’t win,the Dems need to reinvent themselves big time.

      Agreed, and yet they can’t see it

      But not so hard to believe when you switch the TDS off and take a dispassionate look at who is addressing the issues that resonate with voters

          He certainly talks fast but here he’s not the one doing the talking. That is why I selected it for your viewing pleasure, impartial critique …and possible enlightenment

              A comedian with a serious message. The only difference here is he knows what his day job is

              Enjoyed it though, cheers

    The daily Trump hit piece somehow overlooks the peace treaty brokered between Israel and UAE and his continuing efforts to limit Chinese expansion. Some throwaway comment is always more significant until suddenly, surprisingly he is reelected.

    We are definitely a good example to hold up as a bad way the virus works and the terrible way it’s been handled though aren’t we? After all we have 9 new cases and 22 deaths

    The three US states closest in population to New Zealand respectively have 592, 516 and 1208 new cases. Deaths there? 2269,1925 and 4507.

      NZ deaths March-August ~25,000. Would we have noticed the difference as most virus deaths are the sick elderly?

        I accept that there are so many deaths and illnesses and numbers and explanations and politics that all numbers to do with the coronavirus should be ignored. Things only got complicated when maths and stats intervened. The totality of what was said could be based on just theories and feelings.

        Making judgements like above and saying ‘it seems likely that there are a lot more cases of covid-19 arising in the USA and significantly more deaths’ would be rubbished as a manufactured story. And some politicians in some parts of the world would say that their country is immeasurably (!) better off than other places because they acted so effectively.

        They have noticed the reduction in expected deaths in normal years…around 550 or so.
        Australia is finding the deaths from flu/pneumonia is only 10% of normal even though flu testing is up.
        And more people in NSW have died from Covid than from Flu

        Its a win win from the covid restrictions. But those with covid are sicker than those with flu of course plus many longer lasting symptoms…some have it for months.

          A win for health vs a loss for freedom and economy. Not a win-win at all.

          And may not be a win even for health when impact on other aspects takes effect.

    Great clip ruined by showing Obama and other Dems. Watched young Dems on the news last night. They are RELUCTANTLY voting for Biden because he is not Trump. Sad.

    Trump deserves to get back in. At least he doesn’t sleep on the job.

    He also said, “it’s terrible, it’s terrible, we don’t want that.”

    Out of curiosity why do people people persist in quoting “…” I’ve never heard anyone say “…”

    Whole sentences disappear into “…”, Young earth creationists like to do that.
