  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.

  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Can anyone honestly watch the town hall and remain confident that Joe Biden actually knows what he is doing? Much less, actually running the country? Below is a link to the town hall in its entirety without cuts. I will let you decide.

    I saw the one that was edited by SkyNews of maximum affect as far as to make him look bad etc. Skimming through the video, he seems to do well in the early part but have more problems the as time went on. His answers are not that comforting if you are looking for promises/assurances of action like Trump would give. You got to really be a fan of him or really hate Trump (where you are bending over backwards to give him the benefit of the doubt) for this appearance to up your morale.

    Promises and assurances of action are meaningless if they aren't followed through with. I'd rather that the President give an honest answer than lie and tell me what he thinks I want to hear.

    I just finished listening to the whole thing. Its about what you'd expect from a president. Not the bloviating of Trump, nor the oration of Obama, just middle of the road. Anyone looking for a woefully out of touch bumbler is going to have to keep searching.

    Trump really is your go-to guy if you want promises.

    I was a bit disturbed by how people in the Audience thought they were talking to a great man that would get things done.

    Uh yeah I would expect you to say that as a Democrat, but I would point to things like Operation Warp speed, how he cracked down on China for their unfair business practices and got a number of our companies back. I don't think Biden can do anything that is not handed to him on a silver plater, he has botched everything his hands have touched in his short time in office:

    1) The Chinese got the better of Blinken at the Anchorage meeting. They took all the social justice talk used in the last election and threw it all in Blinken's face when he tried to talk to them about human rights and the Uighurs.


    2) The same sort of thing happened to Biden at the G7 expertly calling Putin a thug before hand, but having to walk it back because he secretly needed to ask Putin for favors when it comes to using military bases in places like Tajikistan because of the planned Afghan pull out. If you look at the aftermath videos it is easy to see Putin got the better of the exchange. Biden is visibly perturbed and testy with reporters but Putin is satisfied and copacetic.


    3) His handling of Afghanistan set new records of horrible. He blamed Trump but was handed a number of outs from keeping the agreement if he wanted a do over. He basically tried to do his own thing, but blame Trump when things went south.


    4) He had completely mismanaged the border. Even though he is/was against "Remain in Mexico" they had to eventually use it because of his previous ringing the figurative dinner bell sent more folks over here than what the Democratic border town mayors could handle.


    5) His setting up AUKUS alliance was good but he managed to get the French super mad at him! Another example, where I think Trump easily could have worked "The Art of the Deal" and done a better job, but Joe was clueless until he stepped into it.


    He has got new problems with the supply chain, an aggressive China vs. Taiwan etc. and things are not looking to good for him, because in all honesty he is doddering old man now (mentally speaking), and was not known to be the brightest bulb even when he was in his prime (in spite of the lies he tried to spin when he first ran for office in 1988).

    I never claimed that Trump accomplished nothing or never followed through on his promises. But there's a pretty long list of things that he promised that weren't followed through on, and his numerous lies are quite well-documented.

    I don't see how this relates to what I said.

    You might as well sticky this to every president in over half a century. The only difference in this dumpster fire is the size of the flames.

    I think I will trade Trump lies for Biden's. Many of Trump's "lies" are just exaggerations etc. which many politicians do. Meanwhile Biden lies about being briefed on Afghanistan, his involvement peddling influence with his son, and from what I can tell colluded to sabotage Trump in the last days of the Obama administration.

    Trump was the only President in history who was criticized for actually keeping his promises.

    Just because we don't expect much of Biden, doesn't mean it wouldn't be nice for him to actually better the nation beyond stopping its bullet train to oblivion.

    It's ironic you would start your post like that, and end like this:
