Jimmy Dore nailed it well a week or so ago.

The Hunter Biden story has been kicking around out there for at least a year before the impeachment crap started up. It's not always the far right that critiques the center right wing.

Sometimes coke taste just like pepsi.



But a celeb anchor say's it's all a nothingburger so move along cuz.

So let's all not vote then!
Now, how do we guarantee that all the Trum...oh wait...they're going to vote.
So in essence, what we have here is the purity pony thing again.
Only Bernie is pure and if we can't have him, we're sitting home and sulking.
Congratulations Bernie Bros!
YOU GET POINTS, for consistency!

Goodness,

Bernie doesn't have a son in this fight.

I thought it was about corruption in both the rights political factions...

I'd beg to differ on that. Coke tastes nothing like Pepsi, the latter is watered down, a bit sweeter and more palatable to less discerning drinkers. Ever heard of a Rum and Pepsi? I didn't think so because Pepsi is useless pap and never will make a decent highball or Cuba Libre. It's a children's drink at best. Republicans prefer it 6/4.
It's the kool aid of colas.

Tried rum & coke. Skipping high school with friends, driving on back roads, listening to ac/dc, Floyd etc. Havenít had a mix cola drink since. You might be able to find the subtleties between em, Gregor, but for some that have no fondness for cola, the differences are negligible.

Add a squeeze of lime to that rum and coke and it aint half bad.

I can't have the sugar or the rum anymore, I'm just here sucking the ice cubes and wishing there was more...

Now...as far as the Biden's go i figure Joe got his boy these cushy jobs by pulling strings for him. Certainly not corruption in the trumpian sense but shady dealings none the less. Is baby Joe selling access to the anointed President to be? Sheer speculation but as long as it casts a bit of doubt on Biden it's all good with me.

Some of you might recall that I don't much care for the old hairspray sniffer.

Read Hunter Biden's entry on wikipedia. He's been working in finance for 23 years, ever since he got his law degree from Yale. He's started investment companies, run lobbying companies, run hedge funds, sat on multiple boards, etc. He's done an awful lot of things to still need daddy's help on anything. He may have benefited by his father being who he is, but I doubt very much ole' Joe had a hand in anything. Hunter even got appointed to the AMTRAK board in 2006.....by George W. Bush!

So it's perfectly reasonable he was asked to serve on Burisma's board after they had a money laundering charge, in a effort to clean up their act. I can see why chunkstyle would not like him: He's certainly one of the upper class capitalists. But he's not really any more corrupt than any other upper class capitalists. I've never read anything about him stiffing contractors or grabbing random women by the crotch.

Of course it is. I'm not interested in facts I just want Biden to lose.
