    We use to buy our school clothes at Ben Franklin way back in the early 70s.

    I use to work for Wherehouse Records in the 80s and we could buy company stock at a fixed price at $2.79 a share until the 600k shares they put aside ran out.

    I quit a few years later and sold the stock at $30 a share and made $16k (y)

    Sanders is still a commie, still lost to Biden. Your crying won’t change that.

    Just spoke to my local Austrian baker. He's doing fantastic business, oddly enough. I guess people staying home are buying more breads and cakes.

    As you all know, I've stopped posting in this thread but I enjoy 'lurking' and reading everyone's comments.
    Some very good posts and discussions on both sides of the 'issues' are made on a regular basis. I just wanted to say that one day I would like to visit Gilsan's island. Sounds like it is a beautiful and peaceful place.

    Ah yes, that sad tactic, you must be getting "rattled". As mentioned before, I am not here to represent or push any candidate, I am simply exposing the BS that too many push in this thread (both L & R). What a lame attempt to divert from the obvious point being made, strange that you would feel the need to get away from the actual subject of "rattled".

    You want to appear to be very concerned about Presidential candidates getting easily "rattled" but in reality you are only concerned with pushing the propaganda that one that you dislike was "rattled" in one instance and in one video. Why no comment on the two videos that I posted on Biden getting "rattled" in multiple instances and videos?....we all know the answer to that don't we. Now let's try it again:

    What point are you trying to make, that you can make a blooper reel on somebody? Well, no kidding genius. Are you a child? Sanders still lost.

    China makes largest U.S. grain purchases since start of trade war.
    Chinese buyers ordered more than 750,000 metric tons of American corn Thursday and about 1 million metric tons of sorghum earlier in the week, LeGrand said.
    On Friday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced China also bought about 340,000 metric tons of wheat.
    These are the largest single purchases of wheat and sorghum China has made since imposing high retaliatory tariffs on U.S. farm goods in summer 2018, the groups say.
    "The market has been waiting for this," said Steve Mercer, a spokesman for U.S. Wheat Associates, a trade organization for the wheat industry based in Arlington, Va. "We'll see where it goes."
    Following the purchase, the price for wheat spiked from under $5 per bushel to more than $5.50, according to Chicago Mercantile Exchange figures.

    Nice projection there JB, you are getting as pathetic, ignorant and shallow as the far right you like to circle jerk with in this thread. Only a child wouldn't get the point that is being made. Should I put it in "baby talk" for you this time?

    Your reply doesn’t actually match my post. I think you may be the angriest poster in this thread. Maybe get some fresh air? The great Joe Biden is now an American hero for looking Communism in the eye and slaying it live on stage. Sanders still lost.

    "BREAKING: Joe Biden unlikely to attend April debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders. "I think we have had enough debates."

    -------------
    Biden has some sexual assault issues

    Joe Biden's accuser finally tells her full story - Katie Halper's interview with Tara Reade



    ---------------
    I think this is pretty clear where Trump stands, he's wanting to open it all up. Thinks the media is using this against him to lose the election.

    "The LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success. The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!"

    Why would I want to "match" your posts, your posts are lame, nothing but empty promises, you have been a sucker for them for far too long.
    Wow, now that will be saved for posterity and pushed back in your face for years to come. You are practically an ironic cartoon character, labeling someone a communist as your self described American hero is the current party face of the latest socialist bailout.

    Well, usually when you quote somebody and respond, it's supposed to match what you just quoted.

    Biden is the face of the bailout? Are you completely unaware of Sanders? It's funny you put Socialist with Biden, but not Sanders? Can you try that again, this time where it makes some sort of sense.

    Sure, just like the responses I made originally about your "rattled" post, which began this whole back and forth, responses that you have repeatedly attempted to avoid and divert away from.
    Guess we are back to baby talk. Biden is the current primary leader, the MSM is pushing and softballing him into Dem leadership. You are yourself softballing him into Dem leadership. He has never claimed to be a dem socialist, yet that is what the current corp socialist dem party is presenting and offering, yet another socialist bailout of failed corporate socialist policies. Sanders has no power, you don't seem to have realized that yet,

    "Sanders has no power"

    Really?

    This isn't some power:

    Bernie Sanders threatens to hold up coronavirus bill after 4 GOP senators push to cut unemployment aid
    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/25/ber...ten-to-hold-up-coronavirus-stimulus-bill.html

    Are you aware he's a Senator?

    Are you aware that he's a Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee?

    So yes, he has some power. What a really dumb thing to say that he has no power. At least you're consistent.

    The rest of your post is your usual whining.

    Sanders still.........

    During the press conference, the President talked about opening up places in the middle of the country that were not hit hard by the virus. If based on data, it makes sense; no reason to treat every state, geographic region the same.

    If NY / NJ stay quarantined; opening TN after no new cases / deaths for a period would be normal.

    ‘Here’s the tape’: Former Ebola czar Ronald Klain says America would be back ‘on the job’ already if not for Trump, trips over previous comments
    https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2020...f-not-for-trump-trips-over-previous-comments/

    Good thread by the creator of Grabien Media about claims of incompetence of President Trump's response to the Chinese Bat Virus by media and Biden campaign

    https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1243180036359847936

    While @RonaldKlain was telling people to relax, by Feb. 12th Trump had:
    - Banned travel from China
    - Banned travel from Europe
    - Suspended copays for coronavirus testing
    - Mandated quarantines
    - Declared a public health emergency
    - Issued travel warnings

    That's racist.
