Thinking of changing my DU signature

Heard this the other night, no idea if it is attributed to anyone:

You can't worship the child in the manger if you ignore the child at the border.

Americans have literally fought and died

for the right to vote, so I am certainly not questioning anyone's right to choose whom they will support, but......................

how is Tulsi still getting 1% in the DU poll after the event of the past few weeks?
I never see anyone posting in her defense here, and I can't imagine how a Democratic enthusiast could support her or her platform.

Any ideas?

A warning about Nikki Haley

There are several threads currently about Haley, with excerpts from her recent book. As a SC activist who watched her career for years, you better be very concerned about her.
If you think Trump is bad, think of an attractive Trump with impulse control and political savvy. She is just as far right as the Trumpers but can mask it and present it as a legitimate political stance. Being of Indian heritage, she gets a pass on the racist label while still dog-whistling the rednecks and Nazis.
I saw her do it in SC and she has plans to do it in the national stage.

Trump can do the work of three men

----Larry, Moe and Curly

I heard this ancient groaner the other day; I think the Stooges were still alive the first time I heard it.

But, on reflection, I decided that it does accurately sum up Trump's personality:

He exhibits the mean bullying of Moe;
The complete cluelessness of Larry;
And the sophisticated and controlled temperament of Curly.

What happened to good guys with guns?

I thought the rationale for arming every sentient being in the country was to insure that the good guys would be able to stop the bad guys with guns.
When’s the last time a civilian stopped a tragedy, instead of caused it? As usual, it is the police that move in to stop the carnage.

The world is treating me bad

misery

Another cascade of tech replacing workers

Attending the Spoleto Arts Festival in Charleston SC.
At a chamber music performance today I noticed the pianist and one of the violinists were looking at iPads instead of sheet music, and had a small wireless device on the floor that they could tap with their toe to go to the next page. So no page turners (which we’re probably unpaid interns anyway).

"You can't impeach a popular President."

Richard Nixon had carried 49 states less than two years before he was impeached.

Someone needs to explain to Trump that the residual stock market run will not insulate him from the Constututional remedy.

First SC polling on primary - good news for Biden

The sample included only those who said they were likely to vote in the 2020 primary. Of those likely to vote Democratic, Biden got 36%, while Sanders had 14 and Harris 13. Booker, Warren and O'Rourke were all around 10%,
Interestingly, the black voters in the poll selected Biden by 43%, while Booker, Sanders and Harris were all tied at 13%.
Other findings:
The full sample showed support for the Wall tied at 43%. If Trump's not winning this debate in a state as red as SC he is in trouble with his signature issue.
Good news/bad news on the fortunes of our state Democratic Party and chances of defeating Graham in 2020: while the Senator has an overall disapproval/approval deficit of 44/36, less than 41% of the sample said they were likely to vote in the Democratic Primary.
One other good sign was that 55% of our gun crazy rednecks said that military style weapons should be restricted and universal background checks should cover all sales.

Two notes: I don't have a link since I jotted down the numbers while listening to a story on local NPR this morning. And remember that, after Iowa and NH eliminate a few serious candidates and elevate a few mid-level folks, SC often selects the eventual winner. Hillary's campaign never recovered after Obama trounced her in 2008, and Bush's toxic 2000 race basically ended McCain's bid.

Christians have been warning about the AntiChrist for 2,000 years, but when he finally shows up, they vote for him.
