Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. In Case It Hasn’t Already Been Asked…

 

Given the very real possibility of a Democrat victory in November, I think it’s important that we ask the unspoken question on everyone’s mind:

Does Joe Biden really have the mental capacity to serve as Vice President in the Harris administration?

    Very clever, Henry.

    If Trump loses, we should be concerned about Headboard Harris’s health. Can you imagine the confusion if Biden has to take over?

    Yup, Mel Brooks was doing a takeoff of that name. (Similiar to the character of “Hedley Lamarr”.)

    It matters not about Biden or Harris. Neither one will have any real power. They both are just placeholders for the ones who couldn’t be elected on a National ticket.

    Biden has only wanted the title of president, for 50 years. It doesn’t matter to him what he does with it, if anything at all.

    I sort over view things differently. Politicians are the public face of political machines or crews. In some cases the politician themselves are the major player in others they are not. It might be more helpful to think of them like crews in the mafia type of thing. The Biden crew wants the POTUS position. Once they get it they will not give it up unless forced to. How much Biden actually needs to be there for his crew to function is open to interpretation. I suspect that in Biden’s case he has been nothing more than veneer for this crew for its entire existence. If Biden ceases to function then it will interesting to see if the Biden crew gets removed or if it overtakes the Harris crew or if they blend the crew.

    Harris hasn’t been on the scene very long, her crew may not be anywhere near the level of Biden’s.

    I just keep thinking of Star Trek and John Gill. In that case it was drugs, but same basic outcome.

    My family doesn’t deserve the effects of a Democrat vote. We mostly just live our lives and leave others alone. We are nice to neighbors, strangers, and whoever we happen upon. We do not deserve Democrat Rule.

    It seems like being nice to people who you may know are voting to ruin everything including your life, is… counterproductive, at best.

    Oh, she’s been “on the scene” plenty long enough here in California. My brother sent me this, this morning:

    Yeah, Kent, you traitor. If you had any decency you would find out someone’s political affiliation before being nice to them.
