  1. Wasn't talking about their power being diminished, but in the context of how many people will view them. They are "lesser people morally" for what they did, not necessarily less powerful.
  2. Not to be argumentative, but I think you are confusing two of my posts in different threads. My post here was not about voter suppression, but repealing all the things Trump and his enablers did on the Federal level.
  3. I meant Again as post-Trump. US was great before Trump, so needs to be so again.
  4. The Week magazine had an interesting article on "Elections: Should it be easier or harder to vote, "Feb. 19, 2021. Couldn't find a link. It covers the multitude of actions the Republicans are undertaking to make sure older, white males control as much of the country as possible. They have introduced (so far) 106 separate bills in 28 states that would restrict access to voting. Examples: curtailing early and absentee voting; more stringent ID requirements; reducing numbers of polling places and drop-boxes; eliminating automatic and same day voter registration; make it easier for Re
  5. I agree with Trump Junior. Force the "RINO's" out of the Republican Party leaving it a shell of itself. Thereby enabling the Democratic Party to gain control of more states and the US Congress.
  6. The Lincoln Project served its purpose, but now that purpose has ended - Trump is out.
  7. How many people remember George Lincoln Rockwell? Showing your age here.
  8. Everybody knew where this would end up. Biggest surprise was that SEVEN Republicans agreed that Trump is guilty. Impeachment and the trial needed to be done regardless of the outcome. Regardless of outcome, it diminishes the Trumpists in Congress and nationally and Trump very much so. Only president to be impeached twice and in only a four year term and a majority of US Senate voted to convict him. Now we can move on and get the Biden/Democratic agenda passed and repudiate and repeal as many of the Trump/McConnell/McCarthy laws and policies as possible as quickly as possible.
  9. Getting confused on your position on Haley. Apparently you believe it is OK for her to speak out of both sides of her mouth or to suck up to Trump and his base as long as it is politically motivated in her best interest for getting elected president in 2024? As for the rest of the cowards, most GOPers will probably remain quiet on Trump for next couple of years, unless they are desperate for his help in 2022.
  10. Haley has to run in the First in the South Republican primary in South Carolina. Lots of Trumpist vote in the S.C. GOPer primary. Depending on who else runs, it would be embarrassing for her to lose in the state that elected her governor twice. Of course that is about three years away so Trump factor may diminish - maybe.
  11. Very long article, but very informative as well. Shows the failures of leadership from the top. This includes Trump, the DOJ, Secret Service and others.
  12. Schools will be interesting over the next few months. Especially in red states where there is tremendous push by legislatures and governors to re-open schools no matter what. S.C. legislature is considering bills to require school re-openings without vaccinations for anyone. I think about 60% of teachers and staff have said they will get vaccinations when able to.
  13. The voters in her district elected her by large margin, so I don't think they will care.
  14. Biden needs to fire Board of Governors and appoint ACTING ones who will fire DeJoy - NOW!
  15. No question for me. Have never voted for Haley and never will.
  16. As I have been posting for many months (maybe longer) now. Just wanted to respond to your post.
  17. Interesting article from a S.C. "electronic newspaper." FitsNews is not a fan of Nikki Haley, but they are well versed in S.C. politics. One thing the article points out is that nationally the GOP is looking for other, better qualified women - and there are many. Other than being a GOPer woman of color, she really doesn't present much to qualify her to be president. Her record would not stand much scrutiny as to how significant it was and how much she really had to do with any successes https://www.fitsnews.com/2021/02/12/nikki-haleys-trikki-political-future-explored-in-expansive-
  18. Haley has been positioning herself since she was elected governor of S.C. She knew what Trump was and didn't care and still doesn't in my opinion. She is just trying to find a position different from the other likely 2024 GOPer candidates for president, who are still loyal to Trump for the most part. Notice how she couches it as being since the election, not the several years before when he was exactly the same person. Why isn't she saying he should be convicted? Why isn't she saying she spoke to Sens. Graham and Scott of S.C. and asked them to vote for conviction? Because she didn't
  19. Ray Collins received screen credits so he could continue to receive medical coverage under SAG(?) or something like that. That is what I read here some time back. Always find it interesting to see "old" actors playing cops and military when in real world, people in those professions generally retire in their 40's or 50's. I have all the DVD's for Perry Mason and there never was a two part episode. The one in color is OK, but doesn't really fit the B&W image of the series. Probably why they left it in B&W. As for the guest lawyers when Burr was on medical leave, don't wa
  20. I mentioned on a couple of other threads that Vertigo and Bachelor in Paradise have cars featured.
  21. Not sure it was a "matinee" as such, but I do remember going to the cheap theater on Saturdays for a movie (probably a Western), a cartoon and a serial. May have had other shorts as well. Of course, there was more activity in the audience than on the screen. Throwing popcorn boxes at the screen, running up and down aisles and general youthful mayhem. Maybe that is why I don't remember the movies that well, although I do remember a few of the serials. As I recall in late 50's it was 12 cents for the whole "experience."
  22. Friday, 02/12 AM, 4 AM, Vertigo, featuring a 1956 De Soto Firedome Sportsman - the real star of the movie. Hitchcock even seems to present it as a star. At 1:45 PM, Bachelor in Paradise. Lots of late 50's/early 60's Chrysler products in Living Color!
  23. Vertigo is on at 4 AM Friday morning. True star of the movie is Jimmy Stewart's 1956 De Soto Firedome Sportsman. Hitchcock gave it a fair amount of attention. 1:45 PM on Friday, Bachelor in Paradise. Lots of late 50's Chrysler products - in color.
  24. More so than Lady of Burlesque?
  25. It appears that the GOPers in S.C. benefited from more in-person and early voting, but not mail-in voting. This was pandemic driven. I think the GOPers doing better with more voting methods was just coincidental this time around. However, overall they view "early voting" and mail-in voting as being favorable to Democrats. While they may lose a few GOPer votes by suppressing the vote, they will prevent far more Dem votes. I admit there is an irony in that GOPers did better, but they believe their base will come out and vote in person if cannot vote early or mail-in absentee, wh
