Farewell to Trump Town? Or too soon Smile
Here’s hoping legal challenges are heard, upheld and a recount forced.
So I can watch him loose, all over again.

Lose not "loose." I don't want him or his spoilt brat ilk loose (unleashed) on the world stage ever again.

Biden/Harris is going to be a disaster for the United States, there's no doubt in my mind - but we might as well get on with it.

Read an 'economic disaster' from your point of view I assume.

As I've mentioned to others, as Trump basically ignored and hoped it would all go away...you may recall it would be all over by Easter:

https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/trump-wants-us-economy-to-re-open-by-easter-as-coronavirus-cases-grow-20200325-p54dkj.html

Or Hydroxychloroquine would be the miracle cure.

https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/trump-says-he-s-taking-malaria-drug-unproven-for-coronavirus-symptoms-20200519-p54u76.html

Or a cure is just around the corner:

Or will die of its own accord after the election:

I won't post a link to the obscene comment about sacking his Chief Medico Anthony Fauci.

Therefore at what point would the state of the US economy, as trashed by Trump become less important than the diagnoses and/or deaths from Coronavirus, bearing in mind the current death rate of around 1,000 a day at present.

Can you imagine Hillary closing up the United States like Dan Andrews did to Melbourne? It would have been impossible.

Don't you have a thread to start about the immanent return of your Mildura train?

I kinda like the fact that you don't respond to me anymore, Michael. It means I can pick your rubbish arguments to bits without your whiny retaliation and facile, emotion-laden responses.
Gee folks, Don's getting better. Someone is not responding to him, but he can still pick his arguments to bits. He really is a mind reader.

Who cares what Hillary may or may not have done as you are only 2nd guessing.

The important thing is what Trump did and didn't do regarding the CV virus and the series of F'ups and foot in mouth is very very long.

Something that may have gone completely under the radar is the change in the law as a result of people voting on certain measures last week in the US election. As a result Montana, South Dakota, New Jersey and Arizona have all now legalised 'recreational' cannabis for personal use. They join the 15 states where marijuana is already legally sold and taxed for personal consumption.

In addition voters in Oregon have decided to decriminalise psychoactive substances like 'magic mushrooms' and MDMA ('ecstasy').

Strange that this is something that has completely bypassed Australia given our state governments are so broke here - Colorado (for example) has made almost $2 billion in taxes from the legal sale of cannabis since 2014.

Clearly you have no answer and see the casualties of Coronavirus solely as economics in the same way the liar and orange man Trump sees it. He has no compassion about this tragedy as his nonsensical, illogical rantings have shown. Moreover extremist Republicans, by refusing to wear masks because it infringes on their liberty or other nonsense, are opening the door to their demise in greater numbers than PPE wearing Democrat supporters.

Fortunately the adults will soon be back in charge. Trump and his pathetic legacy of extreme right wing, populist, divisive, dishonest, racist, climate change denying and misogynistic do nothing government will be consigned to the dust bin of history.

Again, tell me how Hillie would have been any different - how would she have prevented the fatalities given how difficult it is for the President to get things done over there? They have a multitude of states to deal with, several times the number that we do.

And anyway, what do you care how many people died in the United States from COVID19? And whose fault was it that the threat was entirely underestimated to begin with - recall the footage of Nancy Pelosi going through Chinatown telling people that not visiting there was racist. Nobody knew how contagious it was or what the proper course of action was - not even WHO. Add to that the fact that the Chinese were lying about the nature of the virus right from the very start - and they're not on an island there like we are here.

Things ain't nearly as black and white as you people see them - that's the point. And I think I hear a thread about a train to Mildura calling you... quite essential that this service gets restored, you know. Vital.
  justapassenger Minister for Railways

Biden is 3 million votes ahead and increasing as well just to add further legitimacy to the result.

Mike.
3 million votes is well under 1% of the population, that’s hardly significant, a decent competitor to Trump ought to have seen that margin (and the election as a whole) be not even a close race.
Common Aaron, that's a pathetic response to Trump's loss, yes really. Anyway will be over 5m difference which is one of the bigger margins over the last 20 years.
RTT_Rules
It's actually a reasonably fair analysis.

As it stands now, Biden's lead is 4.4M votes. That's a 2.9% margin of the vote in this election (Chump's 70.8M so far this election is higher than any other previous winning total) and less than 1.5% of the total electorate.

Democrats have a quite large margin over Republicans on voter registration numbers in the 30 states that include party affiliation on their voter registrations (31% vs 25%, 55/45 if you exclude independent/others) so they should have close to a 10% margin just from party alignment - even before you add in the fact Biden was running against a candidate deeply loathed within their own party. A 10% margin would have given Biden around 450 electoral votes

I stand by my statement a few posts back - both major parties need to carefully consider the changes they need to make to get higher calibre candidates standing for the presidency. I don't think America's democracy can survive another election like the last two.

According to Wikipedia, most of what has been built only replaced existing structures. Laughing

By October 29 2020, 400 miles (640 km) had been built, all but about nine miles being replacement of existing outdated or dilapidated barriers.
I'm not going to look it up again but the whole wall thing is worth a read and it dates back long before Trump came along and includes alot of previously committed approved funding for wall replacement and a few new sections.

All up he basically created allot of noise to do not much at all.

And a number of the newly built or rebuilt segments have been blown over by the wind, i.e. they are less firmly fixed than the tiny fingered man-baby's hairpiece.

I wonder how the Chinese could possibly lie about the nature of the virus when nobody knew how contagious it is, or what to do? ( or does "nobody" exclude China?)

I'm guessing his last act as President will be to board the Trump Boeing 757 and fly somewhere outside of the States.

Clearly the deaths would have been much less now without Trump in charge, a true leader would have led from the top when it came to the Pandemic, Trump never led from the top at all! in fact, he said virtually carry on as per normal, despite mounting evidence at the time that the virus was very deadly.
  mejhammers1 Chief Commissioner

So freedom of speech is what the elites are desperate to destroy? How very authoritarian.

We keep getting called 'deplorable' or 'dumb hicks' or 'rednecks' or whatever because we highlight shortcomings in governance, process, or various media assumptions and narratives.

Anyway, in a 'post truth' society where facts are no longer deemed 'true', tyrants will prosper in their suppression.
Carnot
And yet you support a guy who has railed against the free press because he does not like the truth being told.

Deal with the name calling, snowflakes. Mr Trump has fired his disgusting barbs at black women reporters and Trump, with those who support that git deserves all the $hite heaped on them.

Big deal, I was wrong. If it hadn't been for COVID I think Trump would have won easily - he also told his supporters to vote in person rather than by post which I think was a terrible mistake...

The LNP here in Victoria actively supports postal voting. At the last Federal and State elections it mailed out postal vote applications to enrolled voters. Someone should pass that on to Joe Hockey.

PS: The Australian Electoral Commission accepts postal votes up to 13 days after the election, provided they are posted on or before the election.
