    And spare me the idiocy of the voter fraud claims (the Republican version of a therapy dog) or the delusional BS that Trump is still going to win.

    From where I stand, the Republicans have just lost the Presidency, House, and Senate in a record breaking 4 years. Just simply amazing.

    And the Senate was lost due to a deaf and dumb majority leader in Mitch McConnell that looked a lot of hard working people in the eyes who had their businesses shuttered or severely limited (many of which were Republican voters who supported the party for years) and said "NO SOUP FOR YOU!" We have 4,000 businesses go under in the Austin area alone (how many did you have in your area?)

    All that even after the President said he was in favor of more support. Gee Mitch, simply brilliant. Did it ever occur to you that maybe people were looking at their situation now, their inability to work through no fault of their own, and saying hey...this situation is a not your average run-of-the-mill recession. How about using your brain and understanding that instead of holding steadfast to your ideology for once. In the meantime, our new President is yelling get us in and I'll take care of it for you (and you wonder why you lost?!).

    So Mitch, you're neutered now so no more of the "I won't let this come to vote" stuff.

    If anyone would like to discuss the ramifications of all this (and in particular, the tax ramifications), I would love to have an "intelligent" conversation on the matter.

    I'm thinking we have a different perception about what a "wave" looks like.

    1994 was a wave

    2010 was a wave

    Losing 1000 federal and state incumbents is a wave, like what happened during the Obama years

    Three incumbents losing in very close elections during a pandemic induced mail in voting year is not a wave. Especially when you pick up 11 or so house seats and don't lose the state legislators

    This was initiated by a pandemic and finished off by false allegations of systemic racism and white supremacy

    Unprecedented poppycock



    PS: I concur, both Trump and Mitch may have shot themselves in the foot recently. But it's not like our media covers anything honesty anyhow. The democrats have skeletons in their closets, the media just barricades the doors for them.

    They definitely shot themselves in the foot. I'm truly wondering if McConnell even cares having just won his race.

    So what of Biden's agenda do you think get passed? How much can they pass using reconciliation?

    One more thing. If Biden misreads the electorate and governs as badly as Clinton and Obama did in their first two years, 2022 will show us what a wave looks like

    I have no idea really, what's he serious about?

    Abolish ICE? I doubt it, he has to act like an adult now

    America first policies are probably gone

    Energy? A real possibility, fracking and clean coal jobs at risk. I see energy costs increasing

    Defunding the police? See ICE, and I think systemic racism bullshit rides into the sunset

    Increase taxes? YES

    Increase regulations? YES

    Increase social spending? YES

    Increased business for accounting and tax professionals? Yes and yes and yes

    Bring it on Joey, I have 4 grandchildren to spoil

    GOP looks pretty dead right now. Tons of infighting, no real direction, demographic tsunami going agains them, mail-in voting and voter registration from the underclasses now off the charts (don't think you can put this back in the bottle much, these people are "voters" now)

    But political parties really don't die, they aren't about ideas as much as they are power seeking entities. GOP will evolve (likely for the worse), probably just concede some things to the Dems like pretending minorities have no agency of their own.

    Governing is harder than talking shit though, so the pendulum will likely swing the other way sooner than later.


    Agree Trump should've kept his mouth shut if he couldn't twist the arm of the GOP to cut the extra checks but whatever, he was never the master strategist that people portrayed him to be. The people/institutions he was going against were just that dumb and/or tone deaf.

    The sole catalyst for all of this is Corona Virus - which lead us to mail in voting - now Dems will look to make mail in voting the staple of the future - if so, we are headed down the Bernie path

    It's important to retain the state legislators, lest mail in voting without any verification becomes the norm

    I full confidence that sleepy joe, Chuck and Nancy will be the change we need. They’ve only been in office for 112+ years combined. It’s not like they help build the corrupt system we are in.

    HAHAHAHA so entertaining listening to all you Trump supporters whine. Unfortunately for you, the majority of Americans are well aware that baby Donald & the modern day GOP are self absorbed anti-democratic scumbags. I hope some of you are able to come back to reality soon. What a beautiful BLUE WAVE IT IS!!! WOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

    Trump completely fucked up the Republican Party. A bunch of washed up old white men grasping at straws too ignorant to realize their time has passed.
    It is reflected here on the rx with posters like Willie and Stevie Ray.

    Unlike the spry Biden, who has an endless amount of energy, and was tirelessly campaigning until the end. It comes as no surprise he received 12 million more votes than a young charismatic Obama. Minority voters overwhelming voted for an old white guy than a young charismatic, first Black POTUS.

    Neither party cares about the people who elect them. As soon as that is understood by the sheep, things can change for the better.

    Mostly true
    But Republicans more than anyone haven't fought for any change lately
    The left understands
    The right doesn't

    Of course it's no wave but the reality is control is one sided now and we will be paying out of pocket for that - for years and years to come

    Lol nah, I hedged heavy on Redskins and was able to clean up. I had to wait for the Giants to beat Dallas to do so then I got Skins at -290 after the Sudfeld news came out rather than the -130 open so hedge wasn’t nearly as good as it should’ve been but still worked out OK.

    no way could you hold that after sudfeld news
