There are three presidential debates scheduled before the Nov. 3 election. The first will be Sept. 29 at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The second will be Oct. 15 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. And the third will be Oct. 22 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Although the Kennedy-Nixon debates made history in 1960, general election debates were not a regular feature of presidential races until 1976. They’ve been held every election year since then. From Ford-Carter through Trump-Clinton, they have played a sometimes critical role in elections, giving millions of voters a chance to evaluate the candidates standing on the same stage.

Agreed, but he will weasle out of it somehow

Did anyone see the interview where biden asked the interviewer if he was a junkie? The man is crazy.https://youtu.be/nyq55Nzm4sg

OK Bull, when not busy later this a.m., I'll be commenting on the political cartoon for the day: "Robert Ariail toon for August 6, 2020" On that, you can get in the first shot across the bow. But I repeat myself, how's your recovery from the coronavirus progressing? You do have one of the underlying conditions (older) so I hope you do well.

Bulldog

You're out of bed extremely early this morning, and pertaining to your question, I'm not worried. I trust God. If I get it I get it. If I die, I die. You and I are not going to get out this world alive, so why worry about it.

P.S. the death rate of this Chinese virus is less than 1% now. The democrats want to keep the economy down to try and unseat President Trump. They care more about power and control than the American people.

Byron, you too are reaching for straws now. Bulldog, have you watched the Axios interview yet?

Bulldog

I've heard it. You won't watch my video, why should I watch yours. Your going to vote Democrat despite their racist origins and current racist stance.

natives5

Wrong again; at least you’re consistent. I watched the video and am not sure what I’m looking for. How can that offend you yet trumps mocking of a disabled reporter, consistently calling female reporters nasty, not being able to correctly state the book in the Bible, which he stated was his favorite book, etc not offend you? I thought y’all wanted a leader who spoke what he felt?!? Make up your minds. ByeDon 2020

Wrong

Bulldog

go ahead and stay on the plantation. I for one will not be enslaved.

natives5

You are getting close to a line you shouldn’t cross there. Stay on the plantation and stay enslaved? Your neck is burning red today isn’t it?

natives5

Now I see why you like trump; y’all both act like children....he didn’t come to my inauguration so I won’t go to his memorial. You won’t watch my video so I won’t watch yours lol

Well, I can see from the remarks Brazoria County education has not progressed from passing a multiple choice high school exam. Do people learn HOW to think anymore? Or are they complacent to live with being told WHAT to think? (Caution: It's a trick question)

Bull, ha ha; good comeback! [beam]

BWHAAAA. BIDEN. The gift that keeps on giving.

Should he retire to Thighland? Maybe he can hang out with Yo-Semites there. ...

Much needed laugh; thanks Mr. Morris 😂

Well, Bull I'm baaackkk! No one is looking on this web page for today's political cartoon: "Robert Ariail toon for August 6, 2020" It YOU shouting "no one's gonna make me wear a mask" which makes me think: how do you shop, get a haircut, etc. I get it, you put on a facade.

Bulldog

People in my town are not little sissies

antone

But Bull, it's a statewide mandate; telling y'all small town folks what to do! They'll come make you wear a sissifies mask.[beam]
