Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Aging has been on my mind lately. That's not surprising given that my parents are in their 90s. But the real jolt came at a Bonnie Raitt-Lucinda Williams concert this month. While Raitt at 72 met the expectations I had built up over 45 years of fandom at a distance, I gasped when an escort guided Williams to a mic stand onstage. She clutched it as she sang, motionless and guitar-less, for the entire set. I learned from a quick phone search that she is 69 and had a stroke in 2020. That was a blinding reality flash about aging and fragility " a moment that makes you think about what's ahead and, whether you're a musician or a writer or a politician, how you can never know.

This was dangerous misinformation (tm) a year ago.

Now it's a by-line in a USAToday piece.

The evolution of rules promulgated by the Technocracy propaganda machine are fascinating to watch evolve.

But is the snowflake wrong How so? Do you really believe Biden should run again? Based upon what?

I agree with this opinion piece from a relatively Liberal news outlet, Bernie should have been the candidate, for our sake hopefully the Democrat elites don't get to choose again.

Given this, the only person "triggered" is you. You can't even defend Biden, you do nothing but attack the messenger because he's a right leaning tribalist.

He shouldn't run again.

Problem is it's going to look really really bad when the VP doesn't get the nod (nor shouldn't) because most of our politics is appearances and optics.

Funny thing is, though, that the party harping on Joe's age will probably still back Trump despite the same arguments being true for him.

The arguments against running are more true for Trump given his obvious physical infirmities. Biden can ride a bike at 79. Trump struggled walking down a gently sloped ramp at 74 and couldn't walk 700 yards without a golf cart at 71.

It's not his age ... its his inability to represent the country. Harris & Mayor Pete would be a better choice in 2024, but Bernie if we can get it.

The bike fall wasn't that bad, it was more his handlers issue, those baskets can be tough.

So Jeff is mocking a stutterer.

Its not his stuttering ...

Neither Biden or Trump should run. Trump is older than dirt and Joementia has achieved rock status.

Iden and Trump should be put out to pasture. We were all liberal and young once. Until we grew up and became adults.

You saying this makes me wonder about your mental acuity.

There have been many times Trump spoke complete gibberish or some of his words were unintelligible.

Biden can ride a bike at 79.

Last time he rode a bike, he fell off of it. And he fell boarding AF-1 a total of 4 times now - three of those were at one attempt to board. That's not a really good place to hang a hat.

There isn't a bike that could support Trump.

What he needs is a mobility scooter.

You mean until you relied on the government for everything and then when you were done convinced yourself you did it all yourself and you owe nobody nothing.

Biden shouldn't run again. He should declare himself king, order the execution of all his opponents and give out blanket pardons.

This is missing context, the part where he falls on his ass.

Why not run again? He's not too old, the country is getting along great, economy and inflation are also great and nothing bad is his fault.

The "libs" on this site really have to ask themselves, why would an #OpenBorder, #DefundTheCops, help the working man, Liberal, such as myself, agree more with the conservatives on this site ... it disgusts me how far supposed "liberals" have fallen and how big of idiots they are with dealing with the real world issues, nothing but deflection and Trump. People are suffering...

They have lost any sense of objective reality.

What? I most certainly am #OpenBorders, and #DefundThePolice, show me where I have ever been against it?

Who is Macrkis you speak of? Or Nulli? Are they posters here too? I haven't seen them.

I've never once wondered that, but since you brought it up: Which conservatives do you side with, and why?

Trump can't even ride his wife.
The way you can tell is there have been no sexual misconduct allegations against Trump for the past 20 years.

Is that a two-way street?
Do conservatives agree with your #OpenBorder, #DefundTheCops, help the working man, Liberal values?
