Re Expanding The Courts

Regarding packing the courts, why can't Biden/Harris say something like

"Senator McConnell denied President Obama's right to even have a hearing for his nomination because McConnell thought that shouldn't be allowed during an election year. Obviously, that really is not truly an issue for him because he now wants to ram someone through to be a Justice, within a month of the election. It was a false excuse. And it is now a false excuse for him to claim that it can be now allowed because the Senate and the Presidency are of the same party. They never brought that up as a reason during the time of Obama's nomination of Garland. The only excuse that McConnell brought up was the part about it being an election year. McConnell is now grabbing at any excuse he can to justify his decision to ram Judge Barrett through. McConnell also made it difficult for Obama to fill vacancies for federal court judges, yet McConnell has now been filling federal judge vacancies in record number. So for all of this double standard behavior on the part of McConnell, are we Democrats supposed to be weak and just roll over and take it?? Should we allow someone to take advantage of us like this, or should we have a spine and stand up for ourselves and say, 'You are not going to walk all over me!' In any relationship, we teach our children to be strong and to not be unfairly taken advantage of, and to stick up for ourselves. And, that is exactly what we are doing! We Democrats are now coming up with various ideas for some type of justice to the obvious and flagrant continual inequities and dominance that McConnell is bestowing upon us Democrats. So when you ask us if we are going to expand the courts, the reason we can't give you a definitive answer is that we haven't made a decision. Expanding the courts is just one of the ideas that we are mulling over. It is just one of the many ideas that we are considering to confront the dirty politics that McConnell is playing!"

Blackburn on The View re COVID

Marshall Blackburn was on The View today and was blaming China (as usual!) for the virus

I called all her offices and either spoke to someone or left a message saying "I saw the Senator on The View today and she was blaming China for the virus. I know she and the President like to do this. Yes, I agree it's China's fault for the existence of the virus but I would like to ask the Senator how it is China's fault that we have reached as high of a number of deaths in this country as we have. What did China do to get us to over 200,000 deaths? Isn't that on Trump??"

It drives me crazy that Republicans think they can get away with the "Let's blame China" narrative!! 😤

Nancy Pelosi was on The View today and Anna Navarro was asking her about Trump's erratic behavior and in answering, Nancy said Trump's EROTIC behavior! Too funny!!!

My 15 year old asked me my thoughts on Trump's COVID diagnosis

Just now before my son left for school, he came over to me and said "Mom, I know you hate Trump but you don't want him to die because he got COVID, do you?"

Now how the hell am I supposed to answer that?? I didn't want to send the message to my kid that human life doesn't matter and that you should never wish harm on anyone and I would be a horrible human being if I was fine with someone dying and on and on with those types of thoughts

So I just said "No, I don't want him to die" and I left off the part that I don't want him to die because I want him to suffer with the damage that COVID can do to you if you survive, that I want him to see Biden win, that I want him to see Republicans down the ballot losing big time, that I want to see him prosecuted and go to jail, that I want him to see his family go to jail

How horrible of a mom would he think he had if I had said all those things, so I didn't!

I'm curious....how do you suggest I should have answered his question? Have any of you been in a similar predicament?

Spill The Dirt!

Whichever doctor gave drumpf the positive diagnosis needs to come out and tell us when that happened! He/She should be guaranteed immunity from any repercussions for coming out! I know this is not realistic but this is what I wish for because this is what we need!!

A Question About COVID

Does anyone know...can we get COVID through contact or has that been disproven? In other words, do we still have to wipe down our canned groceries etc when we get home from the supermarket? (I've never wiped mine down because I just leave them in a room and don't touch them for 3 days). But I'm just wondering is the contact issue less important than the airborne issue or is the contact issue not an issue at all?

Thanks for anyone's help!


After reading DU, Twitter, watching CNN, MSNBC, etc, have you been feeling a sense of relief or lack of feeling guilty for being happy about those in the Administration and Senate being affected by COVID?

I sometimes ask myself 'is it wrong to feel this way' and then I read and watch what everyone else is saying and then I answer my question with a 'Hell No!'

It just makes me feel better that others don't feel guilty or bad about feeling the same way I do!!

Thanks, guys, for your part making me feel guilt-free!!

My Message to Trumplicans

We have a Horribly Mismanaged Pandemic, Increased Racial Injustice, A Faltering Economy, Horrific Natural Disasters, Friendships With Dictators and Loss of Trust From Our Allies, People Who Could Probably Lose Their Health Insurance, High Unemployment, Increased Homelessness

So my message to all of you who voted for Drumpf, is....



I just wish the rest of us didn't have to pay the price for YOUR mistake in voting for this human piece of garbage!
