    TRIGGER ALERT!! Republicans’ united opposition to every initiative President Biden has put forth appears to have been a historic blunder. According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll, “Overall, around three in four Americans approve of how Biden is handling the distribution of coronavirus vaccines (75%) and the response to the virus itself (72%). Sixty percent approve of how Biden is handling the country’s economic recovery.” On the vaccine rollout, even 53 percent of Republicans approve of his performance.t On theeconomy, 60 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s performance, including 63 percent of independents. And on guns, Biden and the Democrats have a distinct advantage. “By a two-to-one margin, more Americans say enacting new laws to try to reduce gun violence is the higher priority at the moment,” the poll says. “There is widespread agreement on this issue, with Americans of all ages, education levels, racial or ethnic backgrounds, and from all regions in agreement.” Republicans are outside that consensus, although even among them, more than a third favor enacting new laws. Whether on the vaccine, the coronavirus relief package or guns, Biden enjoys a supermajority of public support, one that is not reflected in Congress, where every single Republican opposed the American Rescue Plan. One would think reporters would be pressing GOP congressional leaders on why they are thwarting policies that many of their own voters support. Republicans’ public grousing about the size of the economic package has evidently fallen on deaf ears. Biden has weaker support on guns, reflecting lower support among Democrats (62 percent approve/37 percent disapprove) who would like stronger action. With Democrats seeking to make a run at universal background checks (an issue that draws 80 percent or more approval), he may be able to boost his numbers on this as well. It is hardly surprising that after the nonstop hysteria from Republicans, Biden does much worse on immigration (41 percent approve/57 percent disapprove) than on the economy and the pandemic. So far, though, most Americans do not put immigration anywhere near the top of their priorities. Moreover, by placing so much emphasis on this issue, Republicans might be lowering expectations for the president and setting themselves up for the inevitable cyclical downturn in migration. Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” White House communications director Kate Bedingfield explained that Biden is “using every possible avenue to ensure that we’re getting these kids out of Border Patrol custody and into [Health and Human Services] facilities as quickly as possible” — including opening up the Army’s Fort Bliss and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Given that the “surges are cyclical,” Bedingfield said, “we saw spikes in 2014. We saw them in 2019 when the Trump administration had perhaps the cruelest imaginable policies in place, family separation to try to deter people from coming, and they still came.” (This is consistent with the view of many academics and immigration experts that the uptick began months ago and that higher numbers now reflect that cyclical pattern, plus the effects of two hurricanes last November and pent-up demand during the pandemic.) If that is correct — that the numbers will trend down in a few months and Biden will have built out the bed capacity — Republicans will be hard-pressed to deny him credit. Moreover, having raised the issue, they will be challenged to approve funding to aid countries in the Northern Triangle of Central America — El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. On the issues most on voters’ minds and which Biden prioritized for his first 100 days, he is doing extraordinarily well in the polls. In turning to another area that has strong public support — infrastructure improvement — he may be able once more to paint obstructionist Republicans as out of touch, even with their own base. Republicans, as they did in the lead-up to their disastrous 2018 midterms (the “caravans”!), will beat the drum on immigration, but ultimately Democrats likely will be judged on whether they can crush the covid-19 pandemic and restore the economy. Once more, Republicans anxious to whip up their base into a fury run the risk of isolating themselves from the concerns and political sentiments of a large majority of Americans.

    Here's what a new poll says New Pew Research Center national survey was conducted the first week of March Two months after he left the White House, and there's no letup in the incredibly polarized views of former President Trump. Nearly nine in 10 Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents questioned in a new Pew Research Center national survey say that Trump was a terrible (72%) or poor (17%) president. But it's a different story among Republicans and independents who lean toward the GOP, with 37% saying Trump was a great president and 36% rating him as good. Pew notes that "there is a substantial partisan gap in evaluations of Trump's presidency." Looking at the overall sample, a majority of Americans say Trump was a terrible (41%) or poor president (12%) – with 17% rating him as great and 18% saying he was good. Twelve percent called Trump an average president. On a separate question, 38% said that Trump made progress toward solving the major problems facing the nation during his presidency, with 15% saying he tried but failed to solve the nation's problems. One in 10 said that Trump didn't address the major problems, and 37% said that Trump made things worse. There was also a major partisan divide on this question, with 77% of Republicans saying Trump made progress and 64% of Democrats saying he made things worse. The Pew Research Center survey was conducted March 1-7, with 12,055 adults across the country taking part in Pew's online America Trends Panel.

    What now? Seriously? What now is that vaccinations are rolling out faster than ever expected and are gaining momentum. In about 3 weeks everyone over the age of 16 can get vaccinated. From the article: Implementing an effective and equitable federal response to COVID-19 was among the presidential administration's top priorities when Biden took office this past January. The president originally established a goal to administer 100 million vaccine doses during his first 100 days in the White House, but surpassed the milestone more than a month ahead of schedule. Biden amended the target number last week, and now aims to administer 200 million shots cumulatively before the start of May. Also... https://www.hhs.gov/about/news/2020/07/22/us-government-engages-pfizer-produce-millions-doses-covid-19-vaccine.html "The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, collaborated with the DoD Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense and Army Contracting Command, to provide $1.95 billion for the production and nationwide delivery of the first 100 million doses of the vaccine after EUA or licensure, with the ability to acquire up to an additional 500 million doses." In fact Warp Speed promised vaccine buys for 100 million to multiple vaccines, all on condition of being approved. Paying nothing up front. The next 100 million doses were bought while Biden started office. Basically nobody was sure any of this would work in the US, while the UK was pretty damn sure it was going right and approved the Pfizer vaccine well in advance buying large amounts as well.

    It was a great move by BB to sign him to a veteran minimum contract. Based on that salary, just about any production we get out of him will be welcome. Sure, it would be nice if he is active on gameday, and gets in and rips off a 50 yard touchdown run, but our expectations should be tempered. He is RB#3....and there is still a chance someone beats him out for that slot.

    New Bills RB Matt Breida: 5 things to know The Buffalo Bills continue to add talent and depth to an already loaded roster. On Thursday, the team announced that they had agreed to terms on a one-year deal with running back Matt Breida. Breida, 26, joins Buffalo after a one year stint with the Miami Dolphins. Breid joins a running back room that includes Zack Moss, Devin Singletary, Antonio Williams and Christian Wade. Following the signing, here are five things to know about Breida. Speed back Buffalo’s running back room was lacking top-end speed in 2020. That won’t be an issue this season if Breida makes the team’s final roster. Breida ran a 4.38 40-yard dash and once hit a top speed of 22.3 miles per hour on an 83-yard touchdown with the 49ers. “Breida the Cheetah” Breida shares the same nickname with Tyreek Hill. In a Reddit AMA, Breida revealed that he picked up the nickname Breida the Cheetah in college and it stuck with the 49ers. Married HS teammate/sweetheart Breida can say that his high school sweetheart was also his high school teammate on the football team. Breida and his spouse, Silvana Breida, were key members of the Nature Coast Technical High School football team. The husband-wife duo actually finished 1-2 in team scoring in 2011. Per ESPN, Breida scored 21 TDs and 134 total points, while Silvana kicked 14 extra points and a field goal. She also made history as the first female varsity football player in the county. Impressive YPC average In his four-year career, Breida has an impressive 4.9 yard per carry average. He had back-to-back seasons from 2018-2019 with the San Francisco 49ers where he topped five yards per carry. To say that Breida makes the most of his carries is an understatement. Welcome to the family Breida was meant to join the (Bills)Mafia. In his AMA, Breida said his favorite movie of all-time is the mobster movie Goodfellas.

    Understood but there is also two less Super Bowl rings on Brady's fingers because of the Giants pass rush. Keep that in mind as well when you need to beat a prolific offense like they had. That may be the only way to beat a team like KC or Bucs today. I understand the Bills have to score points, that's something the Bills can do, especially when the defense is taking the pressure off them and they can just play their game.

    Did you watch the Super Bowl? There's another ring on Brady's finger because of the pass rushers on defense. There would be one on Josh Allen's finger if he had the same pass rushers on the team.

    Rasmussen is one of the biggest jokes in polling and is well known to skew far to the right. When Trump was President and every single polling place showed his approval rating ion the low 40 percentages, Rasmussen (And Fox, ironically) showed him near and over 50%. Just as their polar opposite on the left is Harris, who does the same thing - skews far to the left. Perfect Example from today You're treading onto Sack of Shit territory

    I wonder if he could build the grill and use the approach 26Shirts uses. No actual BILLS logos, i.e. might have to lose the charging Buffalo with the swoosh but I would ASSuME he could use BillsMafia on the grill. Take a look at the merch 26Shirts creates. They use a Buffalo on their shirts, but it is not the exact Buffalo Bills licensed Buffalo. Good luck! Build em man.....I think you can do it! PS That really is a masterpiece. You should put Serial No 001 on the bottom of that baby.
