Easy for me to agree with me sitting on 7000+ posts

Differences of opinion are vital to making good decisions. It prompts more in depth thinking of the pros and cons. The ideal forum is when the goal of all involved is to make the best unified decision possible. The group can explore multiple scenarios to test their worth and have confidence in the final decision. The group is then committed to the implementation plan--The most important and hardest part of the process to accomplish successfully.

We are not making decisions here. We are expressing opinions. We are debating our opinions. A lively debate that is not face to face and without a moderator is destined to fail, nothing will be accomplished. There is no consideration that another opinion might have merit. There is no moderator here and we aren't face to face so if we are to have constructive dialogue it is up to each of us to moderate ourselves.

I enjoy political debates. Especially those that are centered on whether Trump has been good or bad for the nation. IMO he has done nothing to expand the middle class or improve the lives of those in poverty. He is a threat to our democracy. I don't think there is any question he has been bad for the nation and I believe his legacy will be that he has been the worst of all presidents.
Missed this post by BC.

Agree with everything including the part about Trump.

House is preparing the second article of impeachment proceedings.

https://apple.news/AAmQz5dU-S6GMZiNCChhnFQ

He’s going to be the first us president to be impeached twice.

I think our country is real lucky that Biden was able to defeat him.

Maruzo:

Congress has to do something in response to Trump's despicable actions on Jan. 6th. I definitely agree about Joe Biden. He is far from perfect but compared to Donald Trump, he is the second coming of Jesus Christ....!

In addition, it is only fitting that Donald Trump got the full 2020 experience:
- He caught COVID-19.
- He lost his job.
- He will be evicted from his house.

Looks like we got ourselves a “Mexican Standoff”!

A Mexican standoff is a confrontation in which no strategy exists that allows any party to achieve victory. Any party initiating aggression might trigger their own demise. At the same time, the parties are unable to extricate themselves from the situation without suffering a loss – effectively, a situation of mutual zugzwang .

In my district as long as you are in line before the Poll closes you are still allowed to vote.

I thought a Mexican standoff was when everybody had their guns pointed at everybody else. No one wants to shoot first because once that first shot is fired all Hell is going break (or since this is a car Group "brake") out.

That have me a chuckle.

I think Trump has overplayed his hand much like he did with the USFL. Only this time the consequences are going to much more dire for him.
