DEAD.
Sis, please. You need to stop.
I guess the car learned their lesson through my passive aggressive nonsense. They’ve been leaving my spot alone since I posted this lol

I can’t believe the election is only three weeks away!!!

Oh? :confused: What did he say?
Tbh, my standom of Rafa has been waning for quite some time, now.
I never would have dreamt of cheering for Schwartzman over him a few years ago.
This would be another nail in the coffin.
Nothing terrible. But I think Pump posted a receipt where he muted discussion of it on his Twitter :rolleyes:.

Y'all I am feeling for the American Veeliers. I see the devil in the eyes of this Karen Coney Bartlett. Allowing her to join forces with rapists Kavanugh and Thomas is.....😰. Sotomayor, Kagan, and Breyer must feel like they are locked in an insane asylum with these other 'justices'.

Evangelicals are a trip. We have some in the extended family in the US and they spent years telling us how Obama was the anti-crhist. Meanwhile they are stanning Trump a man who is heading a global plague, mass deaths, and utter corruption. 😦

I think history is going to remember this time as pure insanity. I hope “this time” is quickly approaching its end though! The grip that the evangelical right has on politics right now in not only several states, but federally too, is honestly some Handmaids Tale shit. Scary stuff. Donnie Darko has cuddled up to them in such a weird way. Divorced twice, hush money to porn stars, acts and speaks very “ungodly”, but his voters think he’s literally Jesus’ successor. It makes no sense. Barrett is just an arrow in their quiver. She has no substance.

I think Biden can pull out a win, but I hope it’s a huge victory so Don Cheeto and the party who stood him up finally disappears. If the president is defeated, expect the GOP to jump from that sinking ship like the rats they are. Suddenly everything he’s said and done will be inexcusable for them. And I hope the blue wave will wash them out of power forever so the Democratic Party can justly and finally split in two. The big tent is getting too big, and without hate for Superintendent Spraytan to be the glue, there’s going to be a lot of flour thrown around in the Dem party. It would work in our favor to have a left wing party, a centrist party, and whatever the right wants to do with their nonsense. Kind of like Canada.

If we had a left wing party to keep the centrists and moderates in check (like the NDP does with the Liberals), I think more policy and more governing could actually happen in this country. It’s getting boring and stale having the right be the extremists and having their whole party toe the line so the democrats are the ones who actually bring substance to everything. Sorry for the essay

I see the republicans are already pulling some fuckery in California with these fake ballot boxes... y'all be careful out there! The entire Supreme Court system is bizarre to me as a foreigner. No political position should EVER be a lifetime contract. 18 years at most should be the limit. Though that's just one of MANY bad processes... head and shoulders above the rest is the garbage electoral college system. How can the person with more votes lose the election? Like how can anyone justify that? We are also fined here in Oz if we don't vote. It should really be a national holiday and mandatory for all over 18.

I agree with @nathanj594 that a real left wing party would help put policy pressure on the other two major parties as well. Even the democrats protect corporate interests, establishment groups, and fracking etc. too much, despite all their 'progressive' BLM posturing. Still I hope he's right and they defeat Donald and the Repub. party crumbles in the wake of the election.

I don't feel sorry for Federer in this GOAT debate (ps why is this a thing in every sport now? WTA, NBA, Soccer, etc... it seems so juvenile and makes everyone only care about the result and the biggest stars without actually watching or following the sport genuinely - no wonder ESPN has dropped tennis). But yeah, he benefited for years from cushy draws, preferential scheduling, media protection, and other tricks like at the 2018 AO where they didn't tell Cilic they would be closing the roof but told Federer 3 days earlier to get used to the conditions (even though it was open for the womens final which was at a much hotter temp).

The other two both have better records against him, have beaten him at his best slam (Wimbledon), and faced stronger opposition in their grand slam finals, whilst he faced the likes of Philipoussis and Baghdatis and was lucky to steal a RG title thanks to Soderling doing all the work.

If you guys can obliterate the Republicans in this election or at least start their decline I think this may happen in 10-15 years? I do see AOC, Omar, Tlaib etc fronting a left leaning party like that with the old school Dems like Pelosi etc and maybe the Lincoln Project Repubs forming a centrist party. One big problem there though is that the US has this crazy authoritarian/fascist loving sect that I don't see going away even if Trump loses. I see a 3rd fringe party with the crazy Evangelical repubs and the Qanon psychos that are sprouting up forming. And the risk there is that one day even in a 3 party system they may get enough seats to come in to power. I believe this has happened in Europe recently (Italy maybe?).

Anyway this handmaid is all but confirmed despite being exposed as a bias fraud. Biden better expand that court stat. And Thomas is old as hell so hopefully Biden fills that seat too. But also agree with others put in term limits! Canadian SC justices cannot serve past age 75. They are also put forward by the Governor General so our PMs no matter the party have no say. And they have to have served at least 10 years on a higher Provincial Court. Nothing like this Karen's 3 year stint as a judge :ROFLMAO:.

Not this Karen judge saying that she won’t support abortion and same-sex marriage. Go back to 1930 where you belong, bitch. 💤

Y’all Americans have a second opportunity to make it right. Do not let those red states drag you down while your current president does everything in his power to invalidate Democrat votes as he knows he is about to get pummeled.

If you do lose again, maybe y’all blue states should fight to be independent. I don’t know about other continents, but throughout these 4 years (Western) Europe has looked at y’all with those what the hell is going on this day eyes 👀 . Make it RIGHT this time! 🧡

I have already voted. And blue’d out the entire ticket. Even my jackass congressman who has no democratic challenger got a vote against him from me!

So so dumb. You’d think Trump himself ordered the plane from him

I'm praying for the three-year ban.
@Couver is he a MAGAt?
I think he naively hoped that Trump would accomplish something after the election result.(?)
Has he been openly supporting him?

I'm not totally sure as I don't really follow the American male players socials. ANd Querrey has his IG on private anyway. I think he's revealed conservative/Rep leanings before though. Not sure the level of Trump cultdom he is in though. They are all conservative but the level varies. Jizzner, Harrison, and Sandgren are at the full on cult/racist end. The others kind of fall in after that.

Harrison's nasty 👀 He gives me domestic abuse perpetrator vibes, too.
There are few players whose descent into floppery has pleased me more.

Watching this reminded me how Veesus had her backhand drop volley perfected back in 2009-2010.

(Also, @HaplessPossum especially, since I know how much you love this kind of twenty-year-old tea)
🍵Thank you sis! If only this SKULLDRAGGING had happened at Wimbledon that year ......... Veesus really should've snatched a slam in 2009 😤
