    I'm grateful for the presidential and VP debates.  Because although one was a playground brawl, and the other a better-behaved brawl, it gives us all clarity on something that should be kept in the spotlight:  Both VP Biden and Senator Harris have, every single time they've been given the opportunity, absolutely, openly, transparently, flat out REFUSED to say they won't seek to pack the court if elected.  There can only be one reason for this repetitive, consistent behavior:
    A Biden/Harris presidency will seek to work with a democrat-held congress to increase the number of Supreme Court justices, in order to forward their political ends.
    It seems to me at this stage of the game, such a thing would be a deal-breaker for someone not wanting to find new ways to play politics with the Supreme Court.   If you care about this enough, it seems like you'd have to abandon the Biden/Harris ticket on principle.  I know something about this, having jumped ship and refused to vote for Trump in the last election, on the principle that Trump was a loudmouth divisive bully of low character.  I believe many principled lefties (and of course they exist) will not vote Biden/Harris over this issue.

    Even when he does denounce them, the media suffers from intentional amnesia, only to demand he do it again and again and .... wait for it...yet again.

    Pence is awful, he stole a whole 1 1/2 second from Harris.
    Imagine how the statistics would have turned out if Pence did not interrupt.

    Then given that Harris had an advantage in time talking, or at worst they had equal time, perhaps you can explain why the moderator was constantly trying to cut off Pence but only rarely Harris.
    What can I say? You caught me.
    Have we been talking about Harris dodging questions? I must have missed your contributions.

    I agree with the above, but there's more to it than that. Most speculation is garbage. When speculation gets treated as actual Church doctrine in the minds of participants or readers, then not only do we run the danger of casting pearls before swine, but we run the much bigger (and IMO more damaging) risk of people thinking that the Restored Church actually believes and teaches the nonsense being discussed.

    Agreed. This question is not important in any way and is not pertinent to anyone's salvation or current standing in the world. The Lord has also asked that sacred things not be trifled with. Is the process ultimately important...yes. However, I prefer to ask questions whose answers will be able to help me grow and progress in the present. I have no reason to teach my 6 year old son about home insurance and income taxes...it doesn't matter to him right now. Plus, he wouldn't understand it if I tried to tell him...and even if he was able to comprehend it, he doesn't have a reason to apply that knowledge at this time in his life, so it would have no real value to him. God will teach us about certain "mysteries" when it is appropriate and applicable.
    Also, we all need to be able to tolerate milk before moving on to meat...otherwise you might choke on it. This is the reason for many a person's apostasy in the church.

    When I think of the so-called lurkers who peruse this site, both LDS and non-LDS, I sometimes think that some of the speculative posts by the Saints are more damaging than the trolls by dedicated antiMormons.

    And unsurprisingly, Harris' "not putting up with being interrupted" occurred exactly when she was refusing to answer Pence's direct question about whether she would pack the court if elected. A lying piece of crap. Pence even called her out for her "non-answer", but the lying piece of crap just laughed, knowing that the moderator, the media, and the fawning partisan swooners the world over would never hold her to account.

    The left repeatedly pushes and pushes the President to denounce hate groups at every turn.
    The moment he and his wife get Covid, the left explodes wishing nothing but death upon them both.

    Who is the actual hate group?

    You don't have to tell me about the media lying to us...... well known fact to those that don't have blinders on. They tend to use their position to try to sway the public to the left side by "reporting" everything but factual truth. Yes, lies.  I don't watch liberal "news" shows for facts... actually I can't stomach the lies, hatred and venom they spew. They seem to instill fear and panic to those who believe what they are "reporting".
    BBC is more factual than our countries mainstream media. 
    I think that the hate filled, vindictive media have joined up with the Gadianton Robbers to destroy the people.

    BINGO!
    The mainstream media makes it so easy for people to become and remain 'low information voters'. The Left leaning mainstream media spoon-feeds people their same biased talking points and many folks, being generally lazy, take it at face value. They never bother to dig any deeper, learn more for themselves or investigate the other side of the story = hence 'low information voter'.
    The far left loves 'low information voters'. They typically play to their emotions only.
    Ex. "Trump is a racist!!!"
    Most people strongly oppose racism. All the mainstream media needs to do is call Trump a racist over and over and over again... low information voters then believe he actually is a racist and thus oppose him.  Trump has repeatedly denounced white supremacist, yet the media repeatedly demands he do it again and again as evidenced once more in the last debate. 

    Low information voters don't dig any further. Just like rioters that spawn up 'immediately' after an event. They don't dig, they don't wait for facts to be heard first... 100% emotional low information driven.

    Actually, if you follow the context of the thread, it was the media that was lying to us. And they still do.
    Just recently, they spread the lie that a medication that Trump took to treat COVID was experimental and extremely dangerous. So, Trump's condition had to be severe for them to risk that.Turns out that it has been around a long time and is used to treat a whole host of conditions from mild asthma to severe pneumonia.
    Yes, the media lies to us all the time.
    I'm not sure what you're referring to here.  But, yes, the media always lies in favor of liberal politicians and against conservative ones.  If people simply stopped listening to the media and researched stuff from independents then we'd have a much more conservative government and people.

    I can agree with most of what you have said - where I disagree is in your use of the term "systemic".  If we judge things on race alone and nothing else - discounting individuals, circumstances and all other things that could possibly apply - that is obviously racism.  The word and idea of "systemic" is exactly that.  It is the notion that race alone and only - and no other factor applies - is the very essence of racism.  To believe systemic racism, of necessity, makes the believer a racist.
