    Members of Biden’s and Kamala’s staff now have COVID-19. What a shitshow... Biden better not get it and die before the election, I don’t know what would happen. Would Kamala have to step up and be the candidate if something happens to Biden, or would the DNC have to look for a new candidate?
    America is not ready for a woman as president. It’s sad but true. So many crazy-ass people think a woman would be an incompetent leader, because they’re sexist pieces of shit. I would love to see a woman as president, but judging by how many people support Trump, an incompetent man/child with psychopathic traits, I just don’t think it’s going to happen...

    IMO the best 'leaders' over the last 12 months have been women . . . Germany's Angela Merkel and the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, seem to be the only people that seem to actually 'follow the science', act quickly and definitively in the best interests of their respective countries populations and not worry about self-interest, what anyone else thinks or get dragged into pointless pissing contests with people that disagree.

    Closer to home, even the Brit government seem to be constantly playing catch-up with whatever action the female Scottish First Minister (Nicola Sturgeon) takes!

    From 6,000 miles away, a black woman President would be a welcome juxtapose to the current orange narcissistic one. :thumbsup:

    It’s just as sexist to make that statement.
    Harris might be a flawed politician but her gender has nothing to do with her ability to lead. Stop believing or saying this now rather than later. It is super toxic. It doesn’t help. Fight it and anyone who believes it. To the death and with your teeth.

    You’re America, we are America. Not some shitty MAGA wearing trumpist. We’re not going to survive this if we don’t reclaim what little way ahead we’ve made.

    it’s a shitty country but it’s the closest to a dream we’re going to get and we need to work on it everyday. COVID or not, solidarity is our only chance

    But how do you change things? Talking doesn’t work. Teaching doesn’t work. Marching doesn’t work, we just got shot, arrested, or brushed off. None of it works. And let’s not forget that 50% of the nation is okay with having a blatantly racist and sexist president. We can’t change anything. We’re virtually powerless, trying to preach equality and harmony to a brick wall. So yes, I’ll say that America is not ready for a woman for president, because 50% of people here are bigoted assholes. Unfortunately they’re part of America, and we have to deal with these disgusting specimens.

    If Biden is elected, at least things can go back to normal in our government. Otherwise nothing short of full-blown riots are going to change anything, or even a coup.

    Hilary Clinton won the popular vote four years ago. So were it not for an outdated utterly ridiculous electoral college system we would have a woman as president already. Right now the Democratic nominees choice for vice president is a multicultural woman and they are leading in the polls by double digits. Biden winning would not just be things going back to normal. We have never had a female VP or as far as I can recall a VP who wasn't white so getting both at once would be pretty fucking out of the ordinary.

    I get that everything feels stupid and hopeless right now but Republicans wouldn't be trying every dirty trick in the book to stop people from voting if things weren't already changing. Usually voter suppression is an afterthought because not enough people vote anyway but not this time. The early voting is so scary for them right now that they are literally destroying the postal service in the entire country and openly putting up fake ballot collection boxes all around California even though the state ordered them to stop. In Texas they reduced each county to one ballot drop off location which is fine for tiny republican counties with 200 people and fucked for urban counties with millions of people. They are rushing to put someone on the supreme court with just weeks to go before the election. Trump is begging his supporters to go defend voting locations from "the bad people" and refusing to say he will leave the white house peacefully if he loses. That isn't even half of what they are doing all because they are terrified of how many people are already voting.

    So before you give in to feeling powerless lets all vote and see what happens on November 3rd.

    Just popping in to say I that hope everyone and their loved ones are still doing okay. It is something we all have to adjust to, and I don't think anyone's 2020 has been very great. It's been difficult, no doubt about it, but at times like this I am thankful for the good folks I've met through this place and the world of toy geekery, and while a lot of frivolous stuff - as well as some real life important stuff - has had to be put on hold during this pandemic, I can look back and appreciate where I've been. Stay safe and healthy everyone.

    I sure as hell hope you’re right. I don’t know if this country would be able to hold itself together if we had another 4 years of this. :?

    i'm not trusting the polls, too many closet "dump truck donny" voters. They know he's a turd, but they'll still vote for him.

    Thought this thread could use a little good news

    https://www.npr.org/sections/health...ies-point-to-big-drop-in-covid-19-death-rates

    “Two new peer-reviewed studies are showing a sharp drop in mortality among hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The drop is seen in all groups, including older patients and those with underlying conditions, suggesting that physicians are getting better at helping patients survive their illness.”

    That’s really great to hear. We’ve had more than enough death. I really hope we have a vaccine or medication ready in Q1 2021 to lower the death rate even more.
