I must have misheard Stephanie Miller saying Dean Phillips is ready to join Nikki Haley on a ticket

I know I can’t say anything bad about anybody running against President Biden even though it could mean the end of the fucking goddamn world.

I know the breaking news story of DOJ investigating GOP members who worked with our enemy to lie about

our president has to be here but I will be darned if I can see it, my eyes are bad so that may be why?

God I don't understand why we aren't tougher on Netanyahu

I just don’t get it.

I will be the first to tell you to shut up if you criticize our president or our party for any reason during these times but this one’s got me just confused as hell.

And not to compare the two but how in the fuck is DeJoy still in power!

Oklahoma banned trans students from bathrooms. Now a bullied student is dead after a fight

Source: Independent

Whenever Oklahoma teenager Nex Benedict was bullied at school for being transgender, their mother Sue Benedict would encourage the 16-year-old to rise above their tormentors.

“I said ‘you’ve got to be strong and look the other way, because these people don’t know who you are’,” Ms Benedict told The Independent in a phone interview.

“I didn’t know how bad it had gotten.”

The bullying had started in earnest at the beginning of the 2023 school year, a few months after Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill that required public school students to use bathrooms that matched the sex listed on their birth certificates.

A few weeks ago, on 7 February, the bullying allegedly erupted in violence when Nex suffered severe head injuries during a “physical altercation” at Owasso High School, according to the Owasso Police Department.

Have not done breaking news before, hope I did it right.

This is the goal of MAGA and the GOP, if you are different in any way you change or die, that is their motto.

Did he just get help to murder himself because it was made clear he had to

Like what happened with a former Trump friend in prison?

Obviously Putin had him murdered and in part he did it now because Trump has come out and told the world that when he takes power back United States will be an ally with Russia and not with Europe.

Some of us said (code for I said ha ha) several years ago that Donald Trump got his money from Putin owed Putin and would do anything Putin said.

You ARE registered as a Democrat, right?

If you think not registering as a Democrat but often voting Democratic is just fine and maybe you are making a statement by doing that, I am asking you to reconsider this please.

The more registered Democrats there are the stronger the party is! Right? Others here will know more about that than me.

Reminds me of Randi Rhodes proudly reminding her audience just the other day that she is registered as an independent, and not as a Democrat ...This is not helpful, it encourages others to do the same.

We need to be together to save democracy! Of one mind!

PS thanks for the HEARTS folks!

Do I hope Jon Stewart in the future does not do both sides stuff

Yes, having said that his observation of the presidents TikTok on Super Bowl Sunday was funny and right on, yes maybe fire some of those people.

Jesus Christ here is another one, god dammit!!!


Why would Merrick Garland pick as special counsel to investigate Biden a diehard GOPer who Trump liked so much that he personally appointed him US Atty of Maryland in 2018?! That explains the BS in the report on Biden's memory. This was a political hit job!!
