Case in point, the claims arising from "Hunter Biden's emails". The claim is that Hunter dropped his Mac laptop and an external hard drive off in a store in Wilmington, Delaware, for repair of some problem -- despite the fact that he lives across the country in LA.
Joe started his political career in New Castle county, Delaware, Wilmington is its biggest city. Joe's current address seems to be a PO Box in Wilmington.

That makes a visit home by Hunter a very likely reason.

I thought it was understood it was meant tounge in cheek. As funny as your uncle seems I don't really believe we need his opinions and insights on the English Forum of Switzerland.

I answered your questions honestly.
Someone asked you if it was 'tongue in cheek', and you said that no, you thought what he said was funny.

Sorry, but I have a close friend whose daughter committed suicide when she was 13 after being repeatedly bullied and called racial slurs in school. It's hard for me to find that kind of thing 'funny.'

C’mon you guys. If you don’t like what someone is saying just ignore them.

Thank you.
It's much easier to do that when you block them, which I'll be doing now that I know they had seen my last comment.

And of course, the irony is that you just ended proving and exemplifying my original point -- that a lot of the Trump supporters that I've encountered are racist.
Good one!

In case she is being sincere see this.

Or, of course, it makes Wilmington an obvious location to plant some fake evidence. Except: why would someone from LA, even if on a visit back home to Dad, put his laptop in for repairs away from home... and then not return to collect it? I know I'd never do that, especially if I thought there was a chance I might not have time to collect it before I had to leave to go home across the country.

Given that her (I think it's a her) previous existance on this forum was permabanned I don't see why this one has survived so long. Particularly with comments like that.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

From the NYTs
Quote:
In Thursday’s presidential debate, President Trump made several misleading claims about the business dealings of the family of his opponent, Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Mr. Trump suggested, without evidence, that Mr. Biden had consulted for his son Hunter Biden to help with the younger Biden’s business. Mr. Trump also said that Mr. Biden had used his influence during his time as vice president to help his son land lucrative business deals. Both claims were misleading.

But the comments nonetheless drew attention to Hunter Biden and his work, according to a New York Times analysis of Google searches and Facebook posts during and after the debate.

Searches for “Hunter Biden” on Google more than tripled during the debate compared with before the event, according to Google Trends data. Facebook posts about Hunter Biden also spiked, according to data from CrowdTangle, a social media analytics tool owned by Facebook.

Nah, terrifisch is not a Trump supporter. I took her posts as being critical of some of the democrats, particularly the most visible ones.

Trump supporters or the so called devil's advocates (cough cough) have a different stye. It's their trademark. Terrifisch was never aggressive and contrarian for the sake of being contrarian. Or succumbed to ad hominem.

Ask yourself why the left leaning The Washington Post, would ever publish an opinion piece if it didn't believe it warranted publication?

PS, on today's Real Clear site, they have articles from The Slate, Vox, NBC News, NY Magazine and The New Yorker in addition to WSJ, The Spectator, The Federalist and the Hill so I would say that is fairly balanced in terms of right/left representation.
Down in the small print, they say that such opinion pieces are the opinion of the author, not the journal; same as CNN, they publish a lot of right-leaning op-eds.

He's a drug addict who was allegedly heavily intoxicated at the time. What a normal person would or wouldn't do is irrelevant as we're talking about a crackhead.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

So it was not Antifa after all, how disappointing for some to learn they were peaceful protests.
Quote:
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Minnesota on Friday announced that the FBI brought charges against a member of the far-right “Boogaloo Bois” group for organizing and participating in an effort to “incite a riot” outside a Minneapolis police precinct in May amid protests against the police killing of George Floyd.

The charges come amid increased scrutiny of militia groups suspected of inciting chaos at recent protests calling for racial justice.

Well, an obvious location for planted "evidence" would be L.A., somewhere close to where he lives and no one would ask "but why here?".

If he was heavily intoxicated at the time then how come you claim he was able to make complex multi-million shady deals, you cannot have it both ways.
