    **** warning...satire ahead...you know....humour****

    Friend of mine was complaining about the participants only having 60 seconds to make their point.

    I said in some cases they seem to be wasting it on speeches.

    Since these are all Democrats.....the following points are already a given -

    1. Trump is incompetent
    2. Anyone can do a better job than Trump
    3. Our country is divided
    4. The economy is awful
    5. Trump is racist
    6. We are at a crossroads
    7. Our health care system is terrible and too expensive
    8. Trump is an idiot
    9. We are on the verge of war with (x) countries
    10. We cannot sustain the current national debt
    11. Trump is a misogynist
    12. We need to give reparations for ancestors of slaves
    13. Corporations need to pay their fair share
    14. We are a disgrace in the global community because of Trump
    15. Insurance companies are ripping off the American people
    16. We need more jobs
    17. We are a nation of immigrants
    18. The people in Flint deserve clean water
    19. Trump and Putin are too friendly
    20. People aren't being paid enough in this country

    Yes....I know there are many many more.

    Spend your 60 seconds wisely folks.....tell us something we don't already know!

Everybody knows what the top candidates stand for and what they have to offer the remaining 12-15 should go home and write a book.

    I'm likely to watch tonight, if for no other reason than to see if there are any Harris-Biden fireworks. Well, that plus I want an excuse to take a break from packing...

    I love how every tweet I see praising John Delaney are from the usual suspects of conservatism online. Dude might as well have the healthcare insurance industry's hand shoved up his ass to play him like a sock puppet. He's polling at margin of error but will probably stick around well into 2020 because the healthcare industry is bankrolling his campaign.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    More (unsolicited) advice.....

    If you can't mouth ALL the words to the National Anthem....don't even try.

    Just put your hand over your heart.....keep your mouth and eyes shut...tilt your head back slightly.....and when it's over smile and clap.

    Wish the moderators would stop trying to stir up trouble and just ask questions...

    It's time for a Dem candidate to "Go Gingrich" on the moderators.

    Remind me how Gingrich did in 2012, again..

    FACT: he won 2 primaries, one of them his home state.

    He LOST in the South to TWO former officeholders from the north........


    OPINION: what a winning strategy!!!!!
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.
