Too scared to vote won't change the outcome though. Donald Trump will be able to say he has been absolved of any wrong doing. This is why I said from the outset it was a politically nave move to impeach.
I have to politely disagree..Biiiigly. It wasn't naieve at all, it is strategic, tactical, and is a big time political campaigning. Especially those who speak in the media about it. It all looks orchestrated for the media.

Male to female transition is more detrimental for females as females are left with no choice but to compete with a male competitor (male basis physical advantages).

Female to Male transition is not as detrimental to males, F to M is not going to break any male records in general (female basis physical disadvantages).

You are very politically nave if you believe the intention, in impeaching Trump, was solely to convict him. Impeachment was the goal. Conviction would be the cherry on the top, but everybody knows, and knew, that it's highly unlikely. In modern times, with a reasonably finely balanced two-party Senate, conviction on political grounds is highly unlikely.

I bet that even after two presidential impeachments in 13 months, most Americans still don't fully understand the difference between impeachment and conviction. Further, I bet that most of them believe that Nixon was impeached. The Democrats want the stain of double impeachment to remain with Trump for the rest of his life. The final outcome of the process is immaterial.

What the Democrats have done is successfully managed to make the gravity of impeachment meaningless with the sham impeachment in 2019. The stain is nonexistent to anyone other than the Democrats and never Trumpers. If the the Republicans regain the house in two years, the Democrats have left the door open for President Biden to be impeached out of spite alone, and indeed any subsequent President that follows.

Your knowledge of history is poor and so you miss the point.
Prior to Trump, all Presidential impeachments were Republican actions.
A conviction after impeachment is not the point, impeachment is a form of censure. No US President was ever found guilty after impeachment and so is not an expectation.

As to the 2019 impeachment. hopefully, the full text of Trump's Ukraine telephone call will soon be released.

You could've fooled me. I had the impression that Trump himself was mightily affected.

That's just playing to the gallery, we need to wait until the House changes hands to assess the true damage.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

I think we're increasingly seeing the problems that emerge from a two-party system. There is no "referee." And for so many, it's not about what is really right or what's really wrong but more a matter of which "team" they're on, which then serves as their moral compass.

What Trump has done is strengthen the left and divide the right. The GOP should hope that Trump will just fizzle out into oblivion, because it's quite clear what he's done to the country, to their party and to their reputation among anyone with common sense.

If I was a political cartoonist, I'd draw a map of the US being torn apart into shreds in a game of tug-of-war, with the media and politicians pulling the country apart, from both ends. And on the end where the GOP is tugging, the one at the very end of the rope would be Trump, who is tugging on all of them and tearing their party and the country to shreds. Too many politicians have lost sight of what their roles are truly about. It's become an ego trip for so many of them in this game of tug-of-war; and meanwhile the country is falling apart.

With Trump and the impeachment, it's about accountability. And even if the Senate does not vote him out, that does not negate the fact that he and his lies and rhetoric are responsible for instigating a violent attack on the Capitol that resulted in five deaths.

I understand and agree with all that. The honestly not exactly common issue of trans women competing against "people with a cervix" needs to be dealt with, and indeed is at higher levels of sport, with requirements like minium periods of feminising hornone treatment in order to level the playing field.

The purpose of my post was to ridicule California Dreamer's ludicrous assertion that Biden had "cancelled womans (sic) sports". Also, I'm still waiting to hear about the black supremacist at the DoJ.

You do a lot of projecting there mr. 78 yards short of a full field.

Sorry the link is from Fox, another form of propaganda* that falls under the M.I.C financial umbrella but here you go. Her name is Kristen Clarke and here is the fith example of why blacks are superior to whites, the other four are in the article.

"Five: Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities -- something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards."

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tuck...ights-division


*Thanks to the NDAA of 2013 and 2016 (signed by Obama) it now legal to propagandize U.S citizens. Which is why we rightfully call it fake news, because its fooking fake. Anyone can see that, anyone outside of EF that is. Funny how your favorite fake news sources dont talk about this. I wonder why??? Such professional "journalists" would surely cover such a story, unless it was a "conflict of interest" of course, which it is.

I think you got something wrong here. I think the FOX piece is from Jan 21, but I still stopped reading at "Tucker Carlson Tonight investigates".

I honestly have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Does this have anything to do with the black supremacist at the DoJ? Or the cancellation of womans sports?
