    It's very anoying when biden and trump and the moderator all
    speak at the same time. They should turn off the mics of the
    opposer when their time is up.

    wallace does not seem very effective.


    biden is throwing the covid shit nonstop

    I don't get the tv channel it is on. I tried the streaming
    option, but at one point it just stopped.

    I settled with a radio broadcast. I don't really need to
    "see" the debate.

    It will be interesting to hear how the media whittles this
    down with the "highlights" later on.

    they said bully within the first 10 seconds of leaving the debate feed.

    anyways, biden is a pro. he doesnt say his dumb shit when he is debate mode. he lets crazy shit slip out when he's freestyling.

    trump knows biden is a better debater and he aggressively attacked but that made him look like an annoying gnat even though trump had good points with facts to back them up.

    biden gets tried quick. they juiced him up with something and i saw it wear all at once.

    another thing is biden got frazzled when trump brought up his son hunter. biden was trying to pull a regan but he didnt do it entirely. biden obviously used a lot of thought up defenses that were provided to him by his people.

    the moderator was shitty and the debate was shitty. it seemed very short too. ---

    nobody said biden can't debate. that's probably the only thing he's good at.

    when he's on his own is when there's a problem. he said weird remarks.

    he does run out of steam though. his last really tired him out bad and you could tell he wanted to gtfo and take a nap. after his adderall ran out he was tired in the debate.

    yeah the moderator was horrible. i would like them to shut off the mics when the other guy is talking. both interrupted a lot.

    someone said that trump acted like biden when he debated paul ryan.

    The debate was in a non-standard or expected format, which forced both candidates out of their comfort zone. In previous debates, each candidate would get time to give an opening speech, instead of going directly to a subject. the opening speech could be on anything they want - themselves,
    their opponent, etc. They were denied a tool they probably rehearsed heavily to use.

    I don't know about Biden's VP electee, however, what do you have against
    her? I watched her give one speech about a month or so ago and that she
    put family first which is important.

    Trump gets blamed for a lot of this Covid-19 stuff, but what or who is the
    real cause? If Trump wouldn't have been elected, would there have been a difference with all these masks and stuff going on today? Who do you feel would make a good President (best of the two)?

    LOL @ Family First... she put parents in jail because kids skipped
    school... proscecuted a crap-ton of non-violent drug offenders
    (marajuana) and joked about it in the context of her having smoked herself.

    She has literally played up whatever political side she's trying to lean
    into and seems more about moving up the political ladder than actually standing on specific policy positions.

    The fact is, pretty much anyone else would likely have been worse. A
    lot of it came down to Trump Derangement Syndrom (TDS) in that when
    Trump first started travel restrictions at the end of January, the
    politicos and media were saying Trump was just being racist and it
    wasn't an issue.

    In the end, Trump made the decision that most would in the scenario,
    which is downplay in order to avoid sparking panic. I do think that
    some of the mfg/trade issues on emergency medical equipment probably
    should have been prioritized sooner. Clearer messaging on suggestions
    for social distancing and wearing a mask as well. Beyond that, it's
    largely up to local states/cities to implement their own rules beyond
    that, the Federal govt isn't really allowed that level of control
    (beyond US border and interstate travel restrictions).

    I think the original "flatten the curve" plan was probably best, and
    still is... trying to stop it or wait for a vaccine is just not a good
    idea in our style/size of country.

    Trump made some mistakes, and only exacerbated by the "Orange Man Bad" posturing against any good ideas in Congress.

    I'm leaning to Trump only because Biden/Harris are political insiders
    that imho are huge problems. Not to mention that I agree with about 2/3
    of Trump's policy positions vs. maybe 30-40% for Biden, and Harris is definitely not a great idea imho, not that I'm a fan of Pence either,
    but I'm pretty sure Biden won't make it through a full term.

    I don't know if it's justified putting a parent in jail for kids skipping school, but I do find it important for kids getting their education. How
    might a kid learn about their future life hanging out on the streets?

    There's been a war on drugs since as far as I can remember. It often
    leans towards worse offenses. I do believe in getting a second chance
    from learning from mistakes. Although now, weed is more socially
    acceptable since laws have turned the table, yet there are still some
    standing firm against it. It's certainly not a joke.

    Perhaps she was harsh on her actions towards these two things, however,
    how might one enforce kids going to school and keeping drugs off the
    streets.

    She has literally played up whatever political side she's trying to
    lean into and seems more about moving up the political ladder than actually standing on specific policy positions.

    What's wrong with moving up the political ladder? However, standing on
    policy positions and keeping focus on what needs to be done is important
    too.

    wasn't an issue.

    That's really uncertain since that's in the past and we need to move forward instead of backwards and to who might have been worse. Things have set
    their course already. Now we have a big mess. I respect Trump on being
    bold and not letting feelings determine what needs to be done despite what's been said or held against him. Honestly, I don't think Trump is racist by
    any means. It's just that there's more and more police brutality more
    exposed on the news like I haven't ever seen before.

    Yeah, we certainly don't need a world panic. That stocking of shelves
    things that happened, was a total disaster. Everybody buying everything
    they can. I don't think it really turned out as bad a some might see it
    to be. Things have been really bad for businesses though because of the
    social distancing and masks and those sort of things. Businesses keep
    revenue circculating throughout the city and states.

    I think the original "flatten the curve" plan was probably best, and
    still is... trying to stop it or wait for a vaccine is just not a good idea in our style/size of country.

    People just need to wisen up and quit acting like idiots. Massive social gatherings spreading the disease isn't going to be a cure for it.

    Trump made some mistakes, and only exacerbated by the "Orange Man Bad" posturing against any good ideas in Congress.

    Everybody makes mistakes, nobody is perfect. Trump is just doing what he
    feels is what's best and wants another four years in office. Either way it goes, we'll see what happens.

    What specific Trump policy positions are you speaking of against Biden? I think Biden would make it through a full term, it's just uncertain who holds the best for our country. There's been a demand for change for a long time
    and we sure got it, a bite that's devestating to a lot of people and so many lives lost regardless if Covid is a hoax or if it isn't regardless.

    I know where this comes from, but I also know that there are cases in which the school environment is clearly detrimental.

    Seriously, some kids would be much better staying in the farm and learning how to grow potatoes than going to schools where
    there are organized groups beating people and forming mini-gangs.

    There are uneducated potato rednecks who are more successful than me and my Engineering degree because they put a lot of work
    into their potato business. I don't really buy that you need formal education with papers or anything to have a future.

    Excuse me, but I am a bit sore against formal education systems for many reasons and everytime I hear people should be enforced

    think Trump is racist by
    any means. It's just that there's more and more police brutality more exposed on the news like I haven't ever seen before.

    My 2 cents is that Trump was in a lose-lose situation regarding the virus crisis.

    If he had brought forth the full power of the federal government to crack down on travel, cause lockdowns, and keep people in
    their homes like China is doing, the Opposition and the media would have accused him of being a tyrant.

    Doing anything less than a full lockdown meant the Opposition and the media would have accused him of not doing enough.

    I believe this is specially true. As an outsider to the US, it seems very clear to me that there has been a very strong
    campaign both from the media and other politicians to discredit the current POTUS and kick him out. It is probably too hard of
    a person to control or strike political deals in the backstage with.

    As far as I know, police forces have had lots of jerks in their ranks for a long time. That it is getting exposed just now
    before the election sounds to me like an attempt to throw more dirt against the federal government as part of the ongoing
    campaign I have described.

    I can't think of any politician subjected to a stronger anti-marketing campaign. So my conclussion is that whatever he had
    commanded the federals to do, the media would have eaten him alive.

    For the record, Spain went into close-to-full lockdown mode and I think it didn't work great. We got all the unemployment and
    hunger that comes with it - seriously, I had neved had to lend money to anybody because they could not afford the groceries
    until this started - but the virus has still taken a strong hold on the population.

    I think part of the problem is that we expect governments to solve the problem, then we organize a party at home with 20 people
    getting drunk in the same room. And then we blame governments because 20 people got sick :-)

    It seems there are many ways through life and to be successful. It seems to me you don't always need a formal education, but you'd have to be willing and motivated and have the energy to put in the time and effort it takes to become successful at something. Whether you choose to get a continued formal education or do something else is up to you.

    Education of children (under the age of 18 or whatever the legal adult age is where one lives) might be a somewhat different matter. I'd think there's basic knowledge and skills that are good for people to learn (and yes, I realize that schools also have electives & things that might not be useful to everyone). One could argue that it can be good to have a base of education to start out with, and also, being in school can keep kids off the streets where they could run into trouble.

    I suppose home schooling could be beneficial too. Just as long as people
    are learning. Everyday we're learning something new.

    Seriously, some kids would be much better staying in the farm and
    learning how to grow potatoes than going to schools where there are organized groups beating people and forming mini-gangs.

    Every trade has their pros and cons. I agree that farming is a good trade
    and it brings food on the table for folks that do other things. We all
    need each other and that each individual has their own special talents
    and trades their good at.

    There are uneducated potato rednecks who are more successful than me
    and my Engineering degree because they put a lot of work into their
    potato business. I don't really buy that you need formal education
    with papers or anything to have a future.

    Not exactly saying formal education such as being in a class room is ideal. Basically school is just prooving what you know to others to get some kind
    of award or plaque. We're gifted with certain things. I suppose formal education is just telling others and their self what they're good at. I
    think everyone is good at something and not everyone has that chance to
    express themselves that way.

    Excuse me, but I am a bit sore against formal education systems for
    many reasons and everytime I hear people should be enforced to go
    through it I feel like strangling him.

    No problem, we're indeed entitled to our own ideals, thoughts and opinions. Enforcing something can and often times lead to rebellion if those are
    against the things being enforced.

    That's really uncertain since that's in the past and we need to move forward
    instead of backwards and to who might have been
    worse. Things have set
    their course already. Now we have a big mess. I respect Trump on being bold and not letting feelings determine what needs to be done despite what's
    been said or held against him. Honestly, I don
    think Trump is racist by
    any means. It's just that there's more and more police brutality more exposed on the news like I haven't ever seen before.

    My 2 cents is that Trump was in a lose-lose situation regarding the
    virus crisis.

    2 cents noted. What if was Trump that caused another country to vise up a disease that would infect the whole world. I highly doubt anyone can really
    do that. Some feel the disease is a thing and others feel it's a hoax or
    some kind of fear. What matters is that we need Jesus ya'll.

    If he had brought forth the full power of the federal government to
    crack down on travel, cause lockdowns, and keep people in their homes
    like China is doing, the Opposition and the media would have accused
    him of being a tyrant.

    At least he didn't or was accused of being a tyrant. He could have been though, but that's not what the USA is about. I don't think any president
    we have would have done that. I don't recall any president in US history
    of being a tyrant. I do think the procrastination of release an effective
    form of curing this disease if it is real is a bad idea... just to wait on
    it for election to be that much more loved as a president.

    Doing anything less than a full lockdown meant the Opposition and the media would have accused him of not doing enough.

    I could care less for the media. They all have different stories and who really knows the truth and not something less than their own agenda.

    I believe this is specially true. As an outsider to the US, it seems
    very clear to me that there has been a very strong campaign both from
    the media and other politicians to discredit the current POTUS and kick him out. It is probably too hard of a person to control or strike political deals in the backstage with.

    Possibly...

    As far as I know, police forces have had lots of jerks in their ranks
    for a long time. That it is getting exposed just now before the
    election sounds to me like an attempt to throw more dirt against the federal government as part of the ongoing campaign I have described.

    There are good police and there are bad police. I'm glad the bad ones are getting weeded out. There's just too much brutality and bullying everywhere
    we go. It's been the course of nature.

    I can't think of any politician subjected to a stronger anti-marketing campaign. So my conclussion is that whatever he had commanded the
    federals to do, the media would have eaten him alive.

    For the record, Spain went into close-to-full lockdown mode and I think
    it didn't work great. We got all the unemployment and hunger that comes with it - seriously, I had neved had to lend money to anybody because
    they could not afford the groceries until this started - but the virus
    has still taken a strong hold on the population.

    It has for probably every country there is...some more than others...
    hopefully this will fade like every thing that has brought on hardships. We need each other as people and not as subjects to be tested one.

    I think part of the problem is that we expect governments to solve the problem, then we organize a party at home with 20 people getting drunk
    in the same room. And then we blame governments because 20 people got
    sick :-)

    lolz... good point.

    Sincerely,
    Jon Justvig

    I'm leaning to Trump only because Biden/Harris are political insiders
    that imho are huge problems. Not to mention that I agree with about

    is definitely not a great idea imho, not that I'm a fan of Pence
    either, but I'm pretty sure Biden won't make it through a full term.

    What specific Trump policy positions are you speaking of against Biden? I think Biden would make it through a full term, it's just uncertain who holds the best for our country. There's been a demand for change for a long time and we sure got it, a bite that's devestating to a lot of people and so many lives lost regardless if Covid is a hoax or if it isn't regardless.

    China and foreign wars in the middle east are probably the top of the
    list for me. There are others as well. I'm not big on most of Biden's platform positions tbh, it doesn't even come close to the handful of
    things I liked about Obama's first election platform (that he failed to
    follow up on).

    Biden is part of establishment, incumbent party members that have
    largely supported the Military Industrial Complex without any pushback,
    he's supported expansion of foreign warfare and served as VP for the
    bomber in chief.

    I disagree on many of Trumps positions regarding the EPA and his FCC
    choice wasn't great either. For biden, I really don't like the majority
    of the positions he has disclosed or supported throughout his carreer.

    Because my main forte is web design, I often use it to express myself. I created a website that explains my plan to help curb the spread of the virus.

    It is a non-political and common sense plan that calls everyone to stand up and be 'American Strong'.

    Please check it out at: https://www.covidplan.info and feel free to email me with your observations, both positive and negative.

    I don't know about Biden's VP electee, however, what do you have against her? I watched her give one speech about a month or so ago and that she put family first which is important.

    She only attacks Trump and says nothing about what they (Her and Biden) plan on doing.

    Trump gets blamed for a lot of this Covid-19 stuff, but what or who is the real cause? If Trump wouldn't have been elected, would there have been a difference with all these masks and stuff going on today? Who do you feel would make a good President (best of the two)?

    To be honest they they both suck, but I feel it's my civil duty to vote. Therefore Trump gets my vote. This is one of the many elections we've had that I am voting for the lesser of two evils. :-(

    * He said he would repel and replace ACA on day one.
    * He said hw would "Drain the swamp", but his cabnet it a revoling door of his rich doners.
    * He said that covid would be gone by summer...
