@fgtech Harris is capable and qualified to be President. Should she have to fill that office I will sleep just fine feeling the Presidency is in good hands.

And yes everybody knew Biden was old. Why weren't the Democrat elites having this discussion a year ago? One bad debate and half the Dems want to cut and run. We're a little bit late in the process to be changing horses.

But, I don't expect anyone to listen to me. All I know is if Trump gets elected we are in deep sh*t.

Democrats. The whole following thread is worth reading:

1/ “Here we are, hanging on for dear life, barbarians in hot pursuit, rolling ass backward through the apocalypse in a circus train full of howling mutants, and you’re like, hey, let’s shoot the engineer!

Yeah, let’s just shoot the guy driving the train. Good idea, right?

So, tell me, what’s the plan?

Wow, YouTube has become almost unusable. There is so much misleading, clickbait content, misleading thumbnails and Automatically generated content, either by AI or other means. Photographs of the wrong person, errors of fact. All this and even more ads.

Because of the 4th of July holiday, I will be eating fancier foods than normal (not a big leap). Instead of cold cereal for breakfast, I plan to have breakfast burritos smothered in refried beans. Supper is yet to be determined, stay tuned for breaking updates. No hotdogs tho.

Lots of interesting stuff about AIbots in that post. Also, IMO this kicks off the AI Wars.

I don’t understand the Democrats. I think a large part of the Democratic Party actually wants Trump to win.

@cheribaker If you are up for reading subtitles here are two for your Murder Mondays. 1. Inspector Montalbano (Italian, English subtitles), great series, you'll start talking with gestures, 2. Maigret (1991 TV series) (French, English subtitles, Starring Bruno Cremer) Simenon's Maigret has been done several times by the British, but the character and that post-WWII era is best portrayed by the French. I found both of these on Mhz network and also DVD. I don't know if they are still available but worth tracking down.
