I think it was dirty pool for Joe Biden to be asked about what his late son would have said. The man has suffered so much and has the weight of the world on his shoulders and sucker punching him on live TV was disgraceful. Lawrence, you should have thought before you spoke.....

Lawrence makes the case that it is up to the police, how the people that they police, are policed. It is not. I up to the people being policed. Not one but collectiviely.

You will know things have changed when cops that do the right thing get promoted and the bad ones get punished.

I could not disagree more with his point only cops can change it. We are suppose to be a self governing nation. All power resides with the people being governed or policed. What is his damage. crazy.

I'm starting to think that the Republicans are, or were in on it given how the worm turned. The vote wasn't close enough, and state officials, like Georgia's, didn't get the memo for a soft coup. It surely didn't help that there was so much scrutiny that the normal voter suppression tactics couldn't be employed. Trump is still trying to incite a groundswell of support, but perhaps for a future effort!?

the question was asked:in this what's motivating changes at the post office? The obvious answer is discussed but the less obvious reason is that they are practicing what they are going to do to The Social Security Administration!

the sound quality for 2 of the guests was so bad they weren't able to get the point across. This is not the first time on this podcast. Sort this out!

The question was, Does this choice heal the liberal divide? Is Harris a Progressive? No, but it does merit a truce.

Spain and France both had more than 1000 daily cases. Don't you go faking it just because Trump does...
