Democratic Fundraising email

I snipped out the fundraising parts since most people get this stuff already and everyone here knows how to donate if they so desire/have the ability to. Posting this since it flies in the face of the doom, gloom, and ratfucking that happens here to suppress the vote. Democrats are ahead across the country and are increasing in numbers. In a few weeks pundits will acknowledge a Democrat tide is coming. No better time than now to get out the vote for 2014.

FSogol --

The Koch Brothers are going to be SHELL-SHOCKED when they see this! New numbers just came in showing Democratic turnout SURGING in MORE KEY SWING STATES!

State: Dem % GOP % 2014 Advantage: Change vs. 2010:
Iowa 52.4% 27.0% D+25% D+19%
North Carolina 41.5% 34.9% D+7% D+17%
Maine 56.6% 18.1% D+39% D+36%

Not only are we absolutely CRUSHING the numbers from 2010 in these states, but in some of our top battleground districts, Democrats are actually doing BETTER THAN 2008 OR 2012!

WE WILL WIN if Democrats keep up the pressure in the field and keep growing this advantage. But we need you to chip in $10 now to meet tomorrow’s deadline and unlock matching funds for the DLCC’s Grassroots Victory Program:

Thanks for your support,

Did the UK winning the Scottish election make anyone think of this scene from


Warnings for harsh language:

California Drought

Sorry if this has been posted before, but here are some dramatic pictures showing the current drought. The pictures have a slider so you can see then (2011) and now.


If you aren't living out there, prepare to be shocked.

Which side do you wish would win in the Scottish election?

For me: Scottish Freedom and a big thumb in the eye of Right-wing British Politics.

See my other poll for you do you think will win:

Which side will win in Scotland?

The Polls in Scotland close at 10 pm (5 pm EST), but we probably won't know until tomorrow.

My personal opinion is that the No side will barely win. I think this will happen because many people are scared of change.

Lawmaker to introduce bill to end NFL’s tax-exempt status because of Redskins name

Source: Washington Post

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) announced Tuesday that she will introduce legislation to eliminate the NFL’s tax-exempt status because of its refusal to address the name of the Washington Redskins.

Flanked by several tribal chiefs, Cantwell, who is the former chair of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, condemned the team’s name as a slur against Native Americans.

“The NFL needs to join the rest of Americans in the 21st century,” she said. “It is about right and wrong.”

Cantwell made her remarks at a press conference called by a coalition of Native American and social justice groups leading the campaign against the Redskins’ name.
