A Very Short but Necessary Post-"short post but it's in response to some Democratic bashing posts""

This is going to be a very short post but it’s in response to some of the usual Democrat bashing that’s starting to get cranked up around here again, just in time for the midterms. I’m a little bit of a hothead as most people can attest but after reading and commenting on a couple of posts earlier in the day that were replete with the usual “Dems suck, just microscopically less than Republicans” coupled with the inevitable, “People around here who disagree with you are going to irrationally attack you for speaking this profound truth”, comments, I wanted to respond. It’s a weeknight and 4:00am comes early so I couldn’t respond in a manner that I would wish or that some of my many detractors would read but then I ran across Beau’s video for today.

"Guys, this isn’t the time to go all “I demand purity” and “Dems need to work on their ideology” or even “Democrats aren’t above criticism”. No, they are absolutely NOT ABOVE CRITICISM AND NOBODY IS SAYING THAT THEY ARE! I’m arguing that flawed or perfect, we need more Democrats. A few more votes for Hillary Clinton, 5 digits worth in a few states and our SCOTUS would be very liberal for the foreseeable future.
This. Is. Not. The. Time! We have to win and if that means biting our tongues until after the election about all of the warts and imperfections Democrats sport, I think our very literal FREEDOM is worth it!"


Progressive Leads While Republicans Remain Unsettled in Senate Races, Poll Says (PA)

Fetterman wants to end the filibuster - One more and we can pass a pro- choice bill.

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman is holding onto a considerable lead in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate over moderate U.S. Rep. Conor Lamb, and the Republican candidates remain in a tight race, a new poll shows.


2022 Senate map/ I posted this in another thread but it is so important that we look at this

map and understand where the votes for a Democratic Senate Majority will come-from what states...just so you know, it is not an encouraging map. But, it is what it is. And we need to understand that once we lose a Senate seat, we may not get it back for decades or at all.


The video is from Parler...seems to shows Alex Jones and others in the capitol on 1/5/21-

the day before the insurrection discussing how they would stop certifications. What the hell was he doing there? Who let them in?

"Senior lawmakers resolved a major standoff late Saturday night clearing the way for Congress to pass a nearly $1 trillion economic relief package, after Democratic leaders and Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.) struck a compromise over his proposal to rein in the lending powers of the Federal Reserve.

Toomey had created a major impasse last week by demanding new limits on the central bank’s emergency lending authority. His proposal, supported by Republican leadership, threatened the delicate negotiations over the relief package. But after hours of frenzied negotiations and meetings in the Capitol, a compromise between Toomey and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) was brokered around 9:30 p.m., aides in both parties said.

The revised language bars the Federal Reserve from creating precise copies of the lending programs created through the $2 trillion Cares Act passed by Congress. It affirmatively shuts down as of Jan. 1 those programs, which were seeded with a $500 billion appropriation by Congress in March. As congressional negotiators have discussed for weeks, the $429 billion in unspent funds will be redirected to other programs in the new $900 billion bill."

Warnock up iin Georgia...wow just wow

Early voted in Ohio today...Cleveland. The lines were long but hubs who had spinal surgery last year

was concerned about standing for a long time so he brought his walker which he uses if he has to stand or walk long distances...and they let us go in handicapped line where there were chairs...we were out in about a half an hour. I turned in our mail order ballots and cast my early vote ballot. I want my ballot counted on election night. Everyone had on a mask.

Early voting information in Cuyahoga county...

Just checked. It seems you can early vote if you requested a ballot...

they cancel the ballot and issue a new one...but you should early vote if you are not using your mail in ballot...different if you vote on election day. Based on this article, you do not need your ballot when you early vote.

"If you do have a burning desire to vote in-person, I would suggest that you come down [to the BOE] for early voting, where we can simply cancel the ballot we sent you, and issue a regular ballot," said West. Going to your local BOE is the simplest way if you change your mind, because if you go to a polling location on election day, your name will be flagged. You would then have to cast a provisional ballot, which are ballots that are set aside because of questions and are counted after issues are resolved."


Anyone else wonder if he knew he had it on Tuesday and showed up late no test to infect Biden?

His entire worthless family did also. And none of them wore masks...careless people.

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy – they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”
