Just saw a sneak preview of Triangles of Sadness.

Certainly thought provoking.
Would love to hear what others think when you see it.

Is Sinema still going to caucus with the Democrats?

I assume she will do so just like Independents Bernie Sanders and Angus King.
That would mean the Dems still have a 51-49 majority.

The greatest Georgia Bulldog was crushed at the home of UGA.

Athens Clarke County went for Warnock 74-26%.
That’s a lot of Georgia football fans that voted against the schools all time sports hero.

Please answer this with your head, not your heart.

If your life depended on you being correct, who do you predict wins the Arizona Governor’s race and who do you believe wins the Nevada Senate race?
I’m talking after all votes in, all challenges, and all recounts.

I keep looking at every reliable source I can find in both races and I just don’t know what to think.
I want the Dems to win SOOO much that it colors any impartial judgement I might have.

My challenge to you for a FUN plus1 Election Day plan.

We all know people that would vote the correct way (blue) if they voted in the midterms.
But they don’t follow politics as closely as we do.
So they don’t necessarily show up and vote in the midterms if they get busy or forget.

I have such a friend.
And I have told him that I will pick him up after he gets off from work Tuesday and I will take him out for dinner, or a movie, or for drinks at his favorite bar.
The one catch is that we drop by his polling place first.
If there’s a long line, I will stay in line with him until he reaches the front and then meet him again outside after he votes.
He has agreed to this plan.
So, yay!, I’m getting us one more vote.

If anyone reading this likes this idea, please do the same thing.
Here’s hoping for a blue Tue!

Is anybody else tuning out the gloom and doom poll people.

I’m retired and watch a lot of tv.
Mostly movies, sports, and politics (mostly MSNBC).
So, it’s unusual for me not to watch any political shows.
But, I’m not. I especially can’t stand to see khaki pants boy smiling like a Cheshire Cat at his magic board while gloating that his Republicans will flip both houses.

So, to save my blood pressure from going thru the roof, I don’t even go there anymore.
I do my political post cards while watching movies and will door knock this weekend.
Then, on November 8th about 7pm, I will log on to DU to monitor the results.
Just wondering if I’m the only one doing this.

I'd love to hear some midterm (honest) predictions.

So thinking with your head and not your heart, please fill in the blanks to the following 2 important questions.
The Dems will take _____ out of 435 House Seats.
The Dems will end up with ____ members that will caucus with them in the Senate.

My predictions:
215
52

Which means the GOP will have 220 members in the House caucus and will be in the majority and 48 in the Senate and remain in the minority.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

This country ether indicts Trump or just gives him the country.

January 6
Stolen records
Georgia

These three situations all have more than enough evidence to indict.
If our DOJ and the state of Georgia don’t indict, American is over.
Tell me how I’m wrong.
