So you are a "lifelong" democrat? Always vote democratic party?

OK, good to hear. But have you always lived in a district where your representative reflects ALL of your most important beliefs and issues?

If so, how nice for you, some of us dont have it that easy, you see.

Some liberals or democrats have reps who usually because of the demographics of the area, dont always stand on the issues the way they want them to. Might be anti consumer protection or anti universal health care, whether they are personally or just to reflect a right leaning district to get elected.

Those liberals or democrats in those states or districts may have to vote for someone who they are not entirely thrilled with, but do you know why they do it?

The party with ONE more seat gets to do what? Decide EVERYTHING including whether or not a bill is even VOTED on let alone passed!

So Manchin for instance, if a liberal democrat cant win in his state then you support him like your LIFE depends on it because IT DOES.

Rumor: "Melania wants to talk to Mueller"

Only a rumor, allegedly coming from a DC lawyer who is plugged in, saying this.

Anybody here, have you heard anything like this?

I am not saying it is true but I hear the rumor and want to find out if anybody else has heard it.

Who said this? "I voted for Ralph Nader in 2000, but I will not make that mistake again.

"I voted for Ralph Nader in 2000, but I will not make that mistake again. The joke is over for Nader. He was funny once, but now he belongs to the dead."


And I wonder what he would say today or would have said in 2016.

Hint: one of the greatest writers of all fucking time.

He also said this:

"If we believed all the brutal, frat-boy threats coming out of the White House, we would be dead before Sunday. It is pure and savage terrorism reminiscent of Nazi Germany."

and this

"All we have to do is get out and vote, while it's still legal, and we will wash those crooked warmongers out of the White House."

The Supreme Court Will Functionally Decide If You Can Wear Your #MAGA Hat To Vote


When was the last time a T-shirt changed the way you voted? Probably never, but the state of Minnesota thinks you’re much more impressionable. It’s so concerned that voters might influence others with their clothing choices that it prohibited wearing items that could be construed as “political” — such as a “Please I.D. Me” button or a “Don’t Tread on Me” T-shirt — from polling places on Election Day. Offenders are subject to civil fines of up to $5,000 and the possibility of criminal charges.

That’s the very opening of the article and you can see that it is fatally flawed in the first sentence. The ban on T-shirts is not because they “change the way” people vote. Nobody is wearing a T-shirt to change somebody’s mind.

Paragraph 1 in excerpt is responded to in paragraph 2, kind of confusing I know, read the article.

Extremely troubling info from Stephanie Miller interview with Adam Schiff

Adam says there is almost no chance, no matter the crimes, of an indictment of the chief traitor.

He didnt expand on whether or not others would be indicted but said the MOST Mueller will do with chief traitor is make a referral to Congress, which as we know means nothing, absolutely nothing will happen.

The question then is would that referral be able to be brought up AGAIN when patriots take control of the house? As in we know the GOP wont do anything about his treason and felonies, but after the election assuming the patriots take control, can that referral be acted on then?

Great acting scenes

Joe Rogan, Mel Gibson and Dr. Neil Riordan in a podcast discussing stem cells

Talked about Mel's 97 yr old father with every ailment known and injecting stem cells cured him.

Cured Mel also of severe should pain and there are 800 other documented cases of injecting stem cells solving all kinds of problems.


I have no financial interest here, just curiosity. The future?

We have to get the FDA on board, illegal here at the moment.

Dont all white Americans benefit to one degree or another from white privilege?

If so, and if that privilege, no matter how big or small, is a by product of institutional racism...then...

Isnt racism a problem ALL white Americans must address?
