    I on the other hand have a significant problem with the notion of meeting in the middle with a significant number of people who, if not outright fascists, bigots, white nationalists, insurrectionists, conspiracy theorists and bullies, at least do not seem willing to denounce that element of people with whom they apparently share other common positions.

     

     

    Could it be that Bruce doesn't buy the notion that half the country are white supremecists, etc.?

    It’s almost a Bruce message sponsored by Jeep....... almost. But it absolutely is a Jeep commercial. And the message is not believable coming from him. He has no desire for this country to be in the middle. He’s made that clear.

    For the record, I don’t care that he sells (or allows) his stuff or himself to be used for commercial uses. I do get a kick out of people rationalizing it as not what it is though. He’s just a guy, like every other guy.

    Anyone else old enough to remember Bruce fans on this board ridiculing other artists for selling out?  
     

    I am.

    I'm not allowed to be hateful, so I try to remain objective.

    She looked great, but not appropriate. She's got style and figure, she knows how to present herself. But this outfit was a statement, not just wardrobe.

    Do you think she looked nicer yesterday, or at inauguration?

    allowed?

    Melania has a somewhat unconventional taste in clothes, but a statement? what is the statement? …. and what good is the statement if it is so subtle that no one knows what it is?

    Anyway, I don't know who Helga is but I'm guessing the comparison is not complimentary …. and the reference to the "best" comments on social media, that I can only assume is vulgarity or mysogyny,  seems gratuitous to me …. so I asked why.

    The irony is that she was talking about how proud she was to fulfill her American Dream, after growing up in communist Slovenia....

    You should have been able to read the comments on our social media. I would have gladly translated the best ones, but would only get this thread locked.

    I think her image in front of all those American flags dressed as Helga from Allo Allo will go into history.

    That said, I know she expresses herself through immaculate outfits, usually very appropriate for the occasion.

    This outfit was loud, she must really hate him. 

    why so hateful?

    You consistently make comments like this without reading other comments that directly refute your "opinion".

    So here, read this. Or don't. https://www.barrons.com/articles/usps-louis-dejoy-post-office-pelosi-mail-in-ballots-51597687253 I'm sure you'll keep making the comments either way, though. For your convenience, I'll post the most important quote.

    "In 2006, Congress essentially told the post office to set aside $110 billion over 10 years. That, by our math, is $11 billion a year. The annual free cash flow reported by UPS, for comparison, was about $6.4 billion in 2018."

     

    USPS lost 8.8 billion in 2019.  Regardless of the justification, not everyone thinks that is good.  What did I say that was wrong?

    He provably would. The big question is, what did this president do with his moment to help the nation rise above it? He's had four years to do his share in fighting back systemic racism, what did he do with it?

    In the aftermath of George Floyd's passing, what did he do to help the nation rise above the anger and frustration it released?

    I think he condemned the Minneapoilis cops involved in the Floyd death.  The federal district prosecutor there is investigating civil rights violations, I believe.

    I remember him wanting to send national guard to cut back on looting, fires etc. but most of the mayors didn't want assistance.  Federal authority is limited in these matters apparently.  The guard was protecting the Portland courthouse for a while but they left at request of the Mayor. The courthouse is in tact but the riots continue up there, 80 some odd days now.

    Is The Rising open for all to use now? 

    I was thinking, what if the RNC used The Rising, with video of Portland, Seattle, Chicago and St. Louis burning, Manhattan boarded up shops, SF homeless and open drug use on the streets. Pictures of all the police officers killed and injured during "peaceful protest". And at the very end "Defund the Police" 

    subject to approval of course, ….. and probably depending on whether Bruce thinks burning churches, court houses and police precincts, …. hitting police with frozen water bottles, bricks, Molotov cocktails and Automobiles …. doubling of the murder rate in several of our major cities ………………..  are things we need to rise above

    My point is that proof is in the White House. If some form of racism wasn't a factor, he wouldn't be president. To me it is that plain.

    So, do you believe most Americans were serial adulterers in the 90s?  They sent Bill Clinton to the White House after all
