And it really does not take them to tell me things are not good, hell we dont even know how to vote the right way, and when the voting is questionable, AKA AZ and others we do not question it. What the HELL do we expect....? My famous line, "I guess this is what we wanted"

Lets look back on some bad economic history here:
Who was President during 'The Great Depression' in the 1930s-early 1940's?
Who was President in 1978-1979?
Who was President (and VP) during the 'Great Recession'?
Who is now President?
Clue: Democrats.

Time to invest in the country and fix the infrastructure and especially the grid not to mention security from foreign and domestic hackers. These would be great investments for the future. Beats the hell out of giving money back to rich folks to support their lifestyles. We all know in their good hearts; they really need that mega-yacht so they can hire workers to keep it afloat.

I also wonder how folks vote. Can't imagine the mentality of someone who could vote for Margorie Taylor-Green, Lauren Boebert or Herschel Walker. Must be the water in their districts? If this is the future leadership and you think things are bad now!

Then why is everyone moving to those (red) States from Cali, NY and other red states? I cannot think of one Demo worth voting for. I guess you think Michigan government is honest? I guess you think DC is honest? Know anything about the Prez's son Hunter? Probably not. How about the "Big Guy". How about Nancy, bet she is on the up, with insider trading? How about NY's finest Andy? Remember the nursing home stories during co-vi-d? What crime in the streets, hey how about all that nice stuff going on in Chiago? No violence there.....
There would be plenty more to bring up, but it would never sink in as you know "pick the one with the D, no matter what they are"
I left that left many years ago....

Can't imagine people vote for the jack-ass party like Polosi, Biden, Stacey Abrams, Eric Adams, and Gavin Newsome. Those ARE the problem people...and the voters deserve what they get. Crap.

Wow! And you can defend the ones I mentioned as well as Palin and Trump? All mentioned are college flunkies that you want to steer the ship? Don't know much about some of the ones you mentioned, but I do believe Pelosi will be looked at kindly in U.S. history. If you listen to the Fox News flunkies, then she is the devil, but I choose to get my news from other sources than "opinion hosts". I get enough opinions from the rest of the old guys at the local Panera.

Don't know about you but my net worth has significantly increased over the last few years. Yes, I pay more for certain things, but as long as more is coming in than going out, I'm good to go. My former company is generating record revenue like many others so why would I want to go back to trickledown economics"?  I prefer to go forward than to backtrack to status quo. Just like any good company that invests in itself, how can we not invest in our country?

There aren't any true "news channels" any more, they are all "opinion hosts". It just depends on whose opinion you agree with.  :)

IMO, there needs to be on ballots, in every election, a box that reads:  "Check here to throw them all out and start over."

That'd get my vote!

I'd like to think that our elections from 1788 to the present were free and fair. Only when the "Orangeman" lost did it become fashionable to claim massive voter fraud. Now that is the normal behavior for losers.

Let's agree that we love our Shelby and Bosses and leave it at that, as I firmly believe we still have the best process to elect our officials bar none! Throwing out results until it suits your narrative solves nothing. If ever there was an opportunity for election fraud it was 2004. The loser conceded and the process was more important than the individual. Nuff said.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
