Election will be between two evils

H.L. Mencken once wrote that all politicians were in it for the money, power or recognition. Sometimes, it’s all of the above. I admit that it’s possible that, “Every now and then, an innocent man is sent to the legislature,” but I’m inclined to agree with ole H.L.

The choice is very clear. Do you want to live under communist control or live free?

A direct quote from Biden yesterday

“COVID has taken this year— just since the outbreak— has taken more than 100 year— look, here’s— the lives, it’s just, it’s just, I mean think about it— more lives this year than any other year,” Biden said.

Father we've covered Biden's stutter before. Have you known a studderer? I have.

Making fun of a studder is un-Christian. Shame.

Before his rise in politics, though, Biden dealt with stuttering throughout his childhood and into his twenties. Afflicts 30 million people https://www.stutteringhelp.org/content/joe-biden

gaffes may be rooted in a little-understood disability. https://thehill.com/changing-america/respect/accessibility/471707-how-joe-bidens-gaffes-have-affected-his-campaign-and

No one is talking about his stutter. He loses his thoughts and rambles. You are obviously in over your head on this one. By the way, supporting the killing of unborn babies is very Unchristian.

And trump never rambles or loses his thoughts,...is this comedy Tuesday?!? Y’all have me in stitches today lol

Everyone,

We have been watching your daily exchanges and want to remind you of our comment standards, which we admittedly have not strongly enforced but are seeing the need to as your discussions have become more lengthy and at times testy. Among these standards:

PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK.

Don't Threaten. Threats of harming another person will not be tolerated.

Be Truthful. Don't knowingly lie about anyone or anything. (this also applies to unprovable claims and conspiracy theories)

Be Nice. No racism, sexism or any sort of -ism that is degrading to another person. (We might throw remaining in there, too)

Be Proactive. Use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know of abusive posts.

We'd also add to stay on topic. We denied a pro-Trump comment the other day, for instance, because it was attached to a column about hurricane preparedness.

At this point, we are only requesting the rhetoric perhaps be dialed back some. We don't expect behavior to be prim like you're at a royal tea, but we'd appreciate raising the level of discourse from its current mud-slinging.

Thank you on behalf of The Facts management

-- Michael

Would not say you've hit a nerve, but we do appreciate informed, civil discussion and it seemed to be drifting away from that. Some papers have had to turn off commenting and we don't want things to run so far afield that we have to consider going that route.

Bulldog

when will you start accepting gmail for credentials to write a letter to the editor. I use comment section to talk about whats really important that is not covered by the Facts.

Bulldog

I have not attacked anyone other than to retaliate against attacks on me. In fact I quit replying to the willfully ignorant.

Father of Six

Did we hit a nerve?

You’ve got that right, Bulldog. You deflect a lot.

Wow, gotta type faster, hit a nerve. whose?

Father @ Sep 1, 2020 11:50am, you're correct, you and Bull are talking about mental conditions. However I am talking about the behavior of stuttering. You and Bull definitely will continue with your deriding remarks, so be it. But you aimat the wrong candidate. It's well established the candidates's ramblings, incoherent words and phrases plus his mental illness of sociopathic narcissim. There's been numerous youtubes such as the interview yesterday (08-31) with Laura Ingraham. It is a barn-burner of comedy: people in dark corners; men dressed in black on an airplane carrying gear and aimed at the rep nat conv. More mental instability: the Dr. Marc Seigel staged interview on the wh house driveway; let's see "person, man, woman, camera" what was that other word? Pathetic in the leader of the free world.

You should join the circus with all the contortions you're doing to dispell bidens decent into oblivion

Mr. Murphy, the idea is we shouldn't have to go through all of these comments. We do have full-time jobs beyond having to play comment police. If you want to provide a time/day of the comment you believe should be denied or not denied, I can take a look at it.

PJBM626

I gave you one example. I didn’t feel it was negative especially compared to the comment to original subject matter

Father of Six

Well you're right about the fact that you, the editor of the paper, shouldn't be going through your readers comments. There's plenty of disinformation going around on both sides. The democrats, media and written press told us for two years there was undeniable evidence President Trump and his associates colluded with the Russians. Turns out only undeniable evidence is Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians. That was the beginning of all the mistrust, hateful behavior on both sides in this country. I'm fairly certain most of your readership can agree with that.

Bulldog

Yup

PJBM626

Also Mr Morris what was negative in response to Frank

antone

So... I'm ba - a - a a ck. Golly all the conversation since Mr Morris @ 12:27!! I'd pose it as more the 7th grade teacher maintaining order in the homeroom class. Good luck on getting back to your full time job. Apparently someone corrected Mr. Frank. Belittling him would not be constructive; read and move on. Most of this is not worth continuing. Bye.
