Did he ask NASA to investigate Biden in order to receive funding?

Mikey wants to be so far away from DC right now, as he's up to his nose in Ukrainian extortion and bribery.

C'mon, Mike: testify truthfully, and you can be President! (maybe for a day or two)

"In his opening statement, Taylor said that on Sept. 1, Trump suddenly canceled a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, claiming Hurrican Dorian as an excuse. (In reality, Trump played golf.) In his stead, Trump sent Pence. Taylor, who received a readout of the meeting, says that Zelensky asked right away about the military aid that Trump was withholding — aid that Trump was clearly using as leverage to extort Zelensky to back up Trump's conspiracy theory..."

Perhaps the protesters should focus their energies on more local issues that they could actually have an impact: public employee pensions, rent control, bureaucracy, city budget, etc.

Dan: "Perhaps" you could explain what local impact have you had on "public employee pensions, rent control, bureaucracy, city budget, etc." ?

At least Dan has made an effort. He and I both ran for city council against three incumbents in a pretty much impossible battle against a lot of the idiocy perpetuated by our council for many years. Make all the snide remarks you want about our Vice President, but at the end of the day he is still your Vice President.

How is asking a question about the poster (ie. what the poster suggested) "snide"?

Yes, Pence is the VP, just as Biden was the vp. Your point?
