CNN start page headline is barfworthy

The headline is America has an education Problem Virginia has the Answer
Then, if you click on it is even worse. It's written by Younkin. Wow. He sure is cocky. What did educators and students do before he rode in on his white horse?

It's bad enough that Tapper had a "town hall" or more realistically, a free campaign commercial for GY a few days ago.

Find you a partner who looks at you the way

cable news hosts look at the newest repuke Presidential candidate. The coverage of NH is completely over the top. Apparently, we will be treated to breathless coverage of her every move. For me, it's bringing back memories of 2016 and the countless hours of trump coverage.

Dems need to relentlessly point out that she is anti choice and anti democracy among many other horrible policy positions. Her smiling cutsie act is already making me ill.

What happened to the poster who wanted to discuss the Democrat Party?

I was reading a hilarious thread about a very earnest poster who was concerned about the Democrat Party, had 32 posts, and was afraid they were being silenced. But when I exited and tried to revisit, the whole thread was gone. Since I'm not a big football fan and everyone in my household is, I was hoping for some entertainment.

The more I hear about DeSantis

the more he seems worse than TFG. Really a lot worse, actually. I mean he actually has "policy" ideas and is a true wingnut conservative. He also is smarter than TFG (not that that is too difficult).

Bottom line: he could do a lot more damage than TFG. I say we root for the orange menace.

CNN is actually fact checking the repugs claims about SS!

And not just Daniel Dale. I've heard it multiple times from multiple journalists today. Credit where credit is due, since I am very quick to find fault with this network.

I am completely shocked

by the positive coverage of Biden's speech last night. Not that it's not deserved, of course. Why do you think they're being fair for once? I like it, but I am floored.

How to explain all this atrocious pre SOTU coverage

They're trying to set up conflict and suspense to increase ratings. Of course cable (including CNN and MSNBC) are doing it in the lamest way possible. Treating the repugs as if they have valid points and both sidering everything. Yeah, that makes me want to watch their coverage and "panel discussions".

I will be watching but I'll watch my local channel here in CA who just hired recently retired Rep. Jackie Spiers as an analyst.

Sincere question for the women of DU

Do you feel women's lives are valued in this country? I am feeling like not so much. Sexism is alive and well. The most recent example for me is the reaction to Nancy Pelosi and the attack on her husband, along with the most recent video that came out. It was barely mentioned on my local media which is in Pelosi's district. If any male in government had this happen to them, I feel that it would be nonstop coverage and something would be done.

Also today, a man who tortures his female victims has been running loose in Oregon after being convicted of assaults against two other female victims in Nevada. Served a couple of years in jail and was released to do it again. Now he's on the run and recruiting females from dating aps. Not to mention the almost constant stream of females being murdered by their SO's. We have become immune, it seems.

I have to say, the latest shooting in Half Moon Bay

is hitting me hard. Not only because it's in my backyard (California's Central Coast, or God's Country as Steinbeck called it) but because of the victims. They were migrant farm workers. This is a group of people constantly taken for granted and taken advantage of. They live in the shadows, and yet without them we would literally starve.

Their lives are incredibly hard. Here in California, we just came out of a period of torrential rains and flooding. These farmworkers and their families bore the brunt of it because they often live in substandard housing.

We in California have strict gun laws and we try to protect each other. But until we have uniform gun laws in this country, we will never prevent these tragedies.

When or why would you ever consider replying this way to a post? I can't imagine doing so under any circumstances. I've read many things I disagree with on DU and I have stated why or ignored the post. Most often, I don't click on threads that seem uninteresting or repetitive.

Never really had an impulse to be rude or tell someone they are "trashed." Maybe I assume they wouldn't care if I trashed their thread. It just seems childish.
