Revealed: Joe Biden Is Actually A 4th Grader, Which May Explain His Groping Of Little Girls.


I thought this was a parody account, and a damned good one, but as far as I can tell, this is real. The former vice-president of the United States of America, and a (for now) significant candidate for the Democrat nomination for president is an immature, giggling little boy who gets all tingly when he thinks about his bestest friend!

I used to think that the Democrats were simply better at this kind of stuff: staying on message, ruthless focus on the goal, etc. But maybe with the rise of The Donald we are simply seeing a better Republican message machine that illuminates exactly how stupid the Democrat party really is!

Donald Trump may be many things, but a giggly adolescent he ain't. And that bodes well for 2020.

8 Well. A friend is someone who helps you hide the bodies.

A GOOD friend, is one who help you take out the perp.

A Best FRIEND is in the Cell next to you going, 'was that fun, or what'.


By my definition, therefore, Biden and Obama in the same cell? OK then.

Sure, vile paste-eater Joe is a dolt, just like his best friend Barack, but will that be enough?

I STILL have relatives that whine about Trump despite all he's done, and all of it with no support from the media and even a lot of his own party.

Compare that to Obama, who had every advantage, everyone on his side, and was STILL a horrible failure as a President (at least, a failure towards the US)

Note, under Obama our economy stagnated, while other economies got stronger.

With Obama Islam was on the rise. It was winning in multiple theatres.

Turkey got stronger. Iran go stronger. Egypt was in turmoil. Libya fell. Syria almost fell.

EU Expanded, with OUR help, and we continued to defend it on our dime.

Federal Government got MORE powerful, while no longer having equal application of our own laws.

The Power of the Federal Government was used to spy on Reporters, Whistleblowers, and even other Presidential Campaigns.

Race Relations in the US got WORSE, and I would say, MUCH Worse.

30 People don't really like talking about this stuff, because it's too real... there is a notion that a "true pedophile" is indeed, one who PREFERS the company of children.

Sex may or may not be pertinent to it. Attraction, from this perspective, has to do with relatibility, and in this sense, it's a separate question of whether the person wants to, or does, have sex with children.

Biden has a disturbing tendency to reveal his attraction to, and mental affinity with children, and in that way, appears to be a "true pedophile."

This. Trump and Trumpists share very little in common with the Republicans.

And it's not so much that they're bad at "messaging." They appear that way, but the messaging is muted/undiscipined by necessity.

Because unlike Democrats, the Republican message is nothing but a pack of lies. For better or worse, Dems say what they mean, while Republicans say what they think will trick us into electing them so they can govern like the liberals they really are.

When you spend decades lying about your beliefs, people necessarily won't have their hearts in it, they start lying in different directions, etc. until nobody is convinced of your lies anymore.

Trump, on the other hand, believes the things he says, and it's much more convincing.

58 Over at Oberlin, the story of the Libel verdict is getting better and better over the weekend! The Verdict, finding absolutely in favor of Gibson's bakery came on Friday afternoon; by Friday evening, Oberlin's General Counsel, named Varner, sent out a letter to Oberlin alumni saying that the jury ignored the evidence, and that Oberlin had done nothing that they were found by the jury to have done.

BUT... there's a procedural quirk in Ohio State Law, which is that in cases like this, the Jury first decides liability owing to the plaintiff, but then if they find that the defendants (Oberlin) are liable, then they recess and meet again later to decide whether or not to assess punitive damages. So, the trial is NOT over - the original verdict came in on Friday afternoon, and the Judge read it, and then recessed the Jury until Tuesday, when there will be a hearing on Punitive damages.

and it looks like one of the pieces of evidence presented at the Punitive Damages hearing will be the letter from Oberlin's General Counsel saying that the Jury is a bunch of idiots who don't know what they're doing. HA!!!

I'll leave it to others, but I'm thinking this split personality in the Democrat Party would have to be a disaster for them.

There's the old left, and the new left, with no discernible way to reconcile the two, from my perspective. But... since logic and facts have nothing to do with either in the first place, maybe they just rally around the D, and don't care much for who or why or what, when it all comes down to the eventual general election voting booth.

80 The real problem for the democrats is that Trump has cracked the "competence" code. Up until Trump, at least in recent times, both parties have been functionally incompetent. Trump has manifested their primal fear of him from the beginning -- that as a citizen/businessman figure of proven efficacy and accomplishment he would expose the sham of the politician/specialist.

Now that Trump has done this and shown America what is possible, the democrats, who remain grossly incompetent (as do the Republicans but who have Trump to mitigate their incompetence), have only emotional, aesthetic and base appeals left to them. So they descend further, desperately, into adolescent hortatory.

There's mist and smoke in the mountain air. We were all young, handsome, and clearly ferocious.

We're all still friends, and still ferocious, if less handsome.

I didn't expect much from Trump, thought he'd govern a bit to the left (New York and all). I still don't think he's Republican, at least ideology wise. He's pragmatic doing rational things that improve our lot which just happen to be in the wheel house of decades of Republican idle promises.

God bless him. He fights.

And this is where it's impossible for the Roy Moore situation to be resolved with anything like sanity, in 2019.

Moore was around 30 or so, when he was "courting" girls in their mid to late teens. This was socially acceptable, at the time... if that's all he was doing. Courting.

If he was sexing them, that's different. It would have never been acceptable. Not then, not now. But I think we'll never know. Which is why he's a political loss, no matter what the truth was/is. If he won't stay out of the next Senate race down there, he's a selfish bastard, and should be shunned by all.

Not taking any side on Roy Moore, just asking for clarification. Courting is essentially TRYING to sex. I'm not sure he was doing that. It seems like he took a benevolent interest in these girls but never tried to sex them. My memory could be faulty owing to all the fog over that episode.

I assume political strategizing is like military strategery (to borrow a term). Somebody somewhere has the job of doing all the "what if" scenarios, and I'm absolutely certain the Dems have a plan for if/when this happens.

They'll come out with more crime accusations against Trump, especially if they make ANY sort of gains in the Senate. I don't balance the balance is 50/50. If the number is more than 50 Republicans, the closer it gets to 50, the more likely they'll pull the trigger on impeachment.

I said just this yesterday to my wife: how does the Democrat Party paper over the yawning chasms that typify it?

Identity politics have come home to roost. The Democrats need to woo white male working class voters, as they found out in 2016. How are they going to do that? Are those voters going to go for any of the candidates bleating about "reparations?" I imagine that notion is anathema to them. Are they going to go for either of the homosexuals, or the crazy senile uncle in the attic?

And what will their platform be? Improving the economy? Cutting unemployment? Promoting illegal immigration (which polls right behind herpes)? Foreign policy? What?

PLUS, as you point out, they now have yet another yawning chasm, this time between the old left and the new left, the latter being prone to violence and extremism generally. The new left will go to the mattresses if the nominee is not a Pol Pot knockoff, whereas the old left sees that as a recipe for another McGovernesque shellacking.

I fully expect the Democrat convention this time around to turn out like Chicago in 1968, with full-on rioting in the streets if the new left is unhappy. Which they will be.

"Courting" in the old-fashioned sense, of interviewing women with a view to picking one to marry. In most cases, with the permission of the girls's parents.

How can anything uploaded to Ewetoob be "lost"? All they ever get from the uploaders is a copy, and the original still resides in the hard drive of the computer from which it was uploaded.

Not to mention that if it was historical "footage" from that era, the original is on film, and had to be captured and digitized somewhere, presumably not Ewetoob.

How can anything uploaded to Ewetoob be "lost"? All they ever get from the uploaders is a copy, and the original still resides in the hard drive of the computer from which it was uploaded.

Not to mention that if it was historical "footage" from that era, the original is on film, and had to be captured and digitized somewhere, presumably not Ewetoob.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon


People were discussing that point in various comments sections. Apparently there are of course still the originals, but what was "lost" was public access to them.

Posted by: Hairyback Guy at June 09, 2019 01:37 PM (Z+IKu)

210 I feel like it doesn't bode real well for our society that politics is so much about "who is the cool kid that you'd be thrilled to eat lunch with" I understand that the only other thing the Dems have is stirring up envy and promising to take stuff from those who have prospered and give it to the loudest whiners. But I just don't like that so many voters still buy into the BS. BJ Clinton was this cool sax player before we had the ultimate cool dude in Obama. They could not, even with all of HW and the MFM, package HRC as cool so they just had to paint DJT as buffoon, rich playboy who leaves women strewn in his wake etc and failed at that.

But its just weird that so people think 'cool will mean good leadership'. I have bosses that are cool, fun to have a beer with, guys. But they are not good at actually managing, only at pressing the flesh with the sponsors; other people end up having to step in to take care of actually keeping the group on track to meet deadlines and such.

The pot legalizers have so won the "war on drugs" that nobody is capable of distinguishing anything anymore, when it comes to how destructive this stuff is, to everyone. Not just the addict, and not just their families, but everyone.

If you have no idea how much money you are spending yourself, through your tax dollars, on the care and feeding and upkeep of the addict and his/her problem, you aren't paying attention.

The dyes in the burnable or rewritable ones are not meant to last forever. I think the best ones claim 50 years or so? Cheap ones in the CDRom era claimed only 10 years; I haven't kept up though. Maybe they're better now.

The metal "permanent" discs should be good for longer, if they're not mis-manufactured in a way that lets air in to the metal part. Then it oxidizes and they stop working. But nobody stores "personal" data on metal CD/DVD/BR discs.

To me, it's not even worth arguing anymore. I've worked directly with addicts, and from that perspective, the ones who are causing exponentially more destruction are NOT the alcohol users, but the opiate and cocaine and now meth users.

Of course, there are vastly more alcoholics than there are other types of addicts, and a significantly higher percentage of them never reach treatment programs, so the data is not clear. Anecdotal at best, and wildly inaccurate assumptions at worst.

Here's the thing - a lot of such people won't use such centers, any more than they will use "homeless" shelters, and for the same reason: they resist any attempt to control them, or to make them adopt social norms.

Or, to put it another way, if they were squared away enough to avail themselves of such service, they wouldn't be on the street in the first place. They're living the way they want to live.

304
With potentially addictive substances, I think there's a spread between 1) occasional indulgence and 2) full-blown addiction and its debilitating effects.

The spread for alcohol is fairly wide: most people can have the occasional drink, even drink frequently, without becoming alcoholics.

In my uninformed impression, the spread is much narrower for drugs. And the reason we don't have worse drug problems in this country is the illegality of (most) addictive drugs makes supply much more iffy.

I don't know the answer, but I also don't think we've seen the full effects of marijuana legalization and won't for several years. Given how bad opioids have been, I predict it's going to be much, much worse than its proponents are saying.
