You are an intellectual.
You leave yourself open to criticism by less rational people.

The other thing is,
I'm not particularly comfortable with it either.
I feel sorry for what Biden will be going through.

At my age, I am always looking out for signs of dementia, myself.
Call me a sensitive petal, on this point.

I'm not looking for a fight.
I'm just sayin'.

Have you forgotten?
Pocahontas, errr, Warren isn't of Amerikan Indian descent.
He wasn't being racist,
Unless you think he was being racist towards another caucasian "honky". :mrgreen:

BTW,
From what I have heard/read, she took advantage of the system she wasn't entitled to, presumably denying other valid candidates from accessing those resources.
Just sayin'. :wink:

You and I are not running for president. Nor were we chosen to run for president. Him having dementia, if that is the case, is relevant to point out in considering the situation. I don't see why his potential mental problems should be any more off limits for Biden then they have been for Trump who is roughly the same age.

Pocahontas and Warren are both fictional Indians.

Is it true SpongeBob SquarePants and Fred Flintstone have endorsed Trump?

Let us agree to disagree.

I am honestly more concerned about Biden's lack of integrity,sincerity and my feeling that he is a frigid career politician,then am I worried about dementia to be honest.And it's to much fun to pick on his son because we know his son is as crooked as his father.

I honestly don't think Warren is that bad of person,she is my senator,and she hasn't done Massachusetts bad.The native American identity scandal is her only real blemish as far as charactor goes.But she endorsed Biden who I dislike so I had to pick on her.

Racial slurs, though? Even if it’s not a popular racial slur, that’s how it’s intended when trump uses it.

Lame of this forum to allow that, even lamer of people to post it. It’s degrading to Indigenous people who are typically already degraded and disadvantaged in North American society.

Also, does that mean people here are allowed to post about that N-word Obama? Makes about as much sense.

No it doesn't make as much sense. If Obama pretended to be Japanese and was nicknamed Emperor Ito because of it, that would be a realistic comparison.

Warren didn’t pretend to be anything. She believed she was of Indigenous descent because that’s what she was told her whole life. trump called her Pocahontas as a slur long before DNA testing said she wasn’t of Native descent.
