    That list sure illustrates all the impact Joe has had during his time in congress. Should be interesting to see his impact going forward.

    That's also then year Earth was either a little better or a little worse, based on your perspective, as it's the year I made my appearance here


    I had no idea that Biden has been in Congress since I've been alive.... What did he do before that? ... Community organizer?

    He was a lawyer for a few years. Graduated law school in 1968. Changed his student deferment to medical (asthma) deferment so he didn't have to go to Vietnam. Elected to city council in 1970. Elected to the Senate in 1972.

    If you can't find more racist stuff on Biden than Trump then you ain't black.

    The Renegade was actually introduced in 1970. The Renegade II was introduced in 1972.

    I was in kindergarten in '72.

    I don't know what I was doing in 72 but I'm quite confident it was something ornery as all hell tormenting the neighborhood since I was 8yo then. Damn, I was an ornery cuss back then!
