If this is true, seems wildly worth it to provide that student loan cancelation!

Thanks. I didn't know it was even from Twitter. I didn't know if it was a government official, a political pundit, a talking head on a news network, or just some random guy on Twitter. The statement can stand on its own, but if it's a direct quote, the source is important for context. Thanks for understanding!

The voters absolutely exist. Our resident tankie was one, he wanted Trump to win because of it.

If you don't think there is a subset of lazy/selfish voters out there, you're insane.

Decent attempt last night in the primetime address to try to spur some (any) Congressional action on gun control. Not holding my breath, but we'll see.

Yeah, I thought his speech was pretty good. I like that he started the whole thing with something like "Look, I want to make this very clear: This isn't about taking people's guns away". Hopefully something will change this time, but I doubt it.

That's such an insane leap of logic, I don't know how people continue to try to use that as a serious point of debate. Adding a few more restrictions to who can purchase a semi-automatic assault rifle at what age is a pretty far cry from the Feds showing up at your door and saying surrender all your guns or to removing the Second Amendment. It's an insane argument for insane (or stupid) people. Judge by who uses it.

^^unfortunately, it's a common point of debate from gun-nuts, and it's permeated lots of dumb conservatives who have no experience with guns. My dad grew-up in the country, and guns were a normal thing. He was in the military, and had a small collection of guns. As a child and teenager, my mother would not allow my dad to take me out shooting, or even see his guns. But now she's posting all kinds of pro-gun memes on FB, most recently "I saw a movie where only the police and military had guns. It was called SCHINDLER'S LIST!"

I feel like there’s been a change in tone recently

But he’s finally speaking clearly on guns. Wants to ban assault weapons or raise age to 21

And wants to undo the special provision for gun manufacturers where they can’t be sued for malfeasance related to mass shootings

Bringing down the costs of solar panels from 24k to 18k? Certainly credible.

Ever ridden a bicycle where you clip in to the pedals (confusingly called clipless pedals)? I fell over multiple times in my 20s. It's very easy to do, especially if your mind is focused elsewhere.



I didn't see anyone approaching 80 in that compilation.

At least Trump would never fall off a bicycle. He'd just walk feebly down a slightly sloped ramp.



I'm not really trying to defend Biden's age. Just people who fall off bicycles. And to inform those who don't know about clipless pedals.

So based on the facts so far, as a cyclist, I cannot conclude that this is in fact

Called it:

https://road.cc/content/news/joe-biden-falls-bike-293707

Except they were cages instead of clipless pedals so that you can wear regular shoes. Same problem, same result.

Excellent commentary and video analysis here:

Also,

Quote :
"Trump himself – who in 1989 and 1990 sponsored a multi-day international race in the eastern US modestly called the Tour de Trump – was dismissive of Biden’s penchant for cycling in the run-up to the 2020 Presidential Election.

In a speech in August last year shortly after footage emerged of his rival out on a bike ride, Trump said: "I’ll never be riding a bicycle. I’m not getting hurt riding a bicycle.""

Ok, the caged pedals is legit, the video in that Twitter link is solid.

But it doesn’t matter, the optics matter. The media has thrown all kinds of ability accusations at you. When someone is 79, I think they are legitimate questions to ask (the obviously fabricated shit right wing media invents excluded). This is fumbling the ball in your own red zone, the other team IS GOING to score.

Yes, that's true. But did they really need more reasons?

Do you think there are many fence sitters out there who are going to be like, "Well, he had my support until he was out for a cycling workout and fell over on his bike, and then got up in seconds, gave an interview, and then got back on his bike and rode away. This guy is just too frail."

How many people bumping 80 even ride a bike or do any exercise? You don't put yourself out there for physical gaffes and injuries when you don't do anything.

Sorry, but I'm not willing to throw out critical thinking skills just because opposition is.

I'm not fundamentally disagreeing with you.

I'm not a cyclist, so I have to ask, why the cages in the first place? Why not just ride a bike with regular-person pedals? I get that you get more efficiency from them, but when you're the president and you're pushing 80, is efficiency really something you need?

It's a more comfortable and connected way to ride, but I agree -- I probably wouldn't do it at 80 in sneakers.

Same reason he’s wearing bike gloves and has a side mirror. You need to signal to all the other chumps on the greenway that you DEFINITELY KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOIN!!!

Gloves are pretty helpful for not skinning up your hands when you fall down and damping out vibrations on longer rides. Bar end mirrors are a helpful way to avoid getting run over and to see what's coming up behind you without turning your head and unintentionally shifting your line. If you've only ever tooled around a couple miles in the neighborhood, you really don't know what you're talking about, TBH.

He’s riding his cruiser on a beach town greenway in jorts, reminds me of the 40-year old Virgin’s bike.

Put the man in a beach chair near the surf drinking something out of a solo cup, try a few casts off the local fishing pier and talk bait with the other anglers, or, peak Biden charisma, let him grab an ice cream cone on the boardwalk and back slap the other patrons. Instead he’s wiping out on the greenway, Cmon man!!!!

But maybe that's what he wants to do (minus the wiping out).
