So Georgia has a Black and Jewish senator. We need more minorities in congress.
There are 37 Jewish members of congress and 35 are D's. 
There are 61 Black members of congress and 58 are D's.
That paints one heck of a picture.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

Either way the media can claim that Trump is a loser. If Walker wins it will be because he banned trump. If he loses it will be because Trump chose him.

(See how easy it is to twist the facts to fit whatever narrative you want to sell?)
Breaking news from CNN: "Warnock will win ... in final midterm rebuke of Trump's influence."

Both are actually true. He was in a lose lose situation. If he would've abandoned Trump a year ago, when Governor Kemp did, he would have made it in the first round.

Is there any connection between the hand motions and verbal expression? I can't tell if they have anything to do with each other.

I know certain cultures are accustomed to heavily gesticulating while speaking. The gestures and the speech over here appear not to match up or have much to do with each other, though. Completely irrelevant question. I just found watching to be a lot more confusing than listening.

You get caught, get called out by the President and the leader of your own party. It is in black and white, so now you have to change it and you have the nerve to call them liars.

It doesn't really make a difference anyhow since SS is done in less than ten years either way according to the last estimates.

We have been hearing that for more than 10 years, no?

My point was not about SS lasting or not but about being a straight-out liar and trying to claim it was others.

Yes they have been saying 2030s for a while. Considering that any time the Rs tried to do something about it the Ds were all up in arms (partially correctly) yet did not present any alternative plans it has not changed.

I expect them to raise the taxable maximum. Just say it only affects the rich.  :)
