1. K & R!

Democratic governors are tough. Feeling more safe, I rather have a Dem in the government.

5. I know exactly how you feel, but ...

that standard has helped keep us decent.

I often wonder, however, if we could go just a little bit higher by stepping all over them!

7. historically

this standard is as much a warning as any of those white terrorists trying to cow the Governor. White males with guns trying to incite violence, insanity and chaos will not see it coming as they will think this saying shows weakness. We will win while maintaining the high ground. That's where FLOTUS always has gotten us to, the moral high ground and leaving those white supremacists, trump brownshirts scratching the fleas from their head.

Immensely? If you say so. Should we get out our weapons and march against these terrorists. What are you implying? Why disparage FLOTUS? First Lady Michelle Obama and President Obama stood for life, liberty and equality.

25. 2 Supreme Court seats lost for 50 years,

Too numerous to count Federal Court seats lost for 50-60 years to "the slave owners were just misunderstood great 'Murikans" Federalists Society jackbooted dipshits, 70 years of environmental protection gains, 100 years of hard fought, blood shedding labor rights, 250 years of America's international reputation, kids in cages, societal norms and morals shredded...

Oh, and tens of thousands of Americans DEAD, that didn't need to be DEAD

This is not the time for turning the other cheek... it's time for all out war to destroy every last vestiges of the politics that put Donnie Shit for Brains in the White House.

We can work on a return to civility AFTER we've buried their rotting corpses UNDER the asheep of history, and salted the ground around them.

8. If you have a twitter account, please post a positive response to Gov. Whitmer

We need to represent and show our officeholders that we have their backs. Gov. Whitmer is standing up to terrorists in the best traditions of American democracy. Let her know that she's not alone!

13. Sorry, I love Michelle but that was then, this is now and going high just won't do. I want payback

for 3 1/2 years of suffering caused by Trump and righty media. I want payback for two lost SCOTUS seats and lots of unqualified federally appointed judges with lifetime appointments. My heart is full of unmitigated hatred for republicans who have diminished our country, economy, health and environment to name just a few things. If the
Next president is a Dem I do not want to hear we are moving forward. Hell no, none of that moving forward will do. I want to hear about Warren and Harris setting up a truth and retribution commission to punish all those responsible for the past 3 1/2 years. I want Mitch McConnell prosecuted for crimes against the citizens of the USA and the Constitution and I want to see him and his grifter, plastic face wife made penniless along with Jordan, Meadows, and Nunes. None of this taking the high road will do
Take the guns away from all these gun toting hillbillies and throw them and letís see how tough they really are. Letís see them cry like the babies they are once these obese bastards are locked up.

17. Exactly. Just like "impeachment is not on the table" started a bonfire of right wing insanity we

have never been able to put out.

It's now an all consuming conflagration.

Democrats need a SCORCHED EARTH POLICY of BENEVOLENCE, with absolutely no weakness, no backing down, no reaching across the aisle, we just put forth law after law after law that benefits common people, and we find ways to lock them in, like the so called "dumb" Republicans always find a way to do.

20. Michelle Obama was NOT talking about armed terrorists

intimidating duly elected representatives.

She was referring to every day political discourse.

Way to go making her statements look like Democratic weakness, whether you meant it to or not. Just look at some of the remarks in this thread, trashing the whole concept of diplomatic and correct discourse.

24. I don't think Michelle is wrong. And I really really wish it WOULD work.

If the US was a country with an unbiased fact-based MSM, across the board. Including daytime radio. Or the Republican party was not so criminally corrupted. (Can't get rid of all the sleaze in politicians, but back to some sense of decorum and decency at least)

But there are just too many dark forces working against Democrats now. Who have only proliferated and grown in the last 10 years. Obama's conceding on extending W's tax cuts for the wealthy, increased the Koch Brothers wealth substantially.....so they could use it to fund super pacs against Democrats.

I think there is also something that rings of weakness to a lot of independents that might vote Blue. We come off as naive rather than noble.

Its like after the war has already started, we are still turning our swords into ploughshares hoping they'll notice. Meanwhile they are turning ploughshares into swords. Even raiding our new ploughshares and using them too if they can.
