I think there are quite a few folks who will vote Democratic just to continue these hearings and

investigations. If Rethugs get power back in the House, it over.

We may as well pack up our Justice system and the SCOTUS if Trump is not imprisoned and

a few of his GOP enablers at well. Few will ever respect the law again if these evil doers are not imprisoned.

This J6 series is more binge worthy than "Breaking Bad"

Glued to the TV, hate for there to be any breaks..

Why we always seem to be willing to "deal" with the wrong side?

Why meet with Saudi Arabia and not meet with Iran? If Iran is named the most dangerous threat to the world why not meet with Iran. We are the ones who broke the former deal that was giving us what we wanted or at least what we "said" we wanted. We broke the deal and are angry with Iran because they are looking out for their own interests. Yet we hardly blinked when Israel bombed inside the nation of Iran. We were on the right treat with Iran just as we were on the right track with Iraq concerning inspections and the faked threat of WMDs. Why the hell would we leave the gate open for Putin and Russia with Iran? We should be the ones meeting with Iran if they are such an imposing threat. Seek out our mutual interests. Remember Iran is the nation surrounded by hostile nations all of which except Iraq have nukes.

So now we are willing to give the Saudis offensive weapons? WTF? I hope this isn't so. More damage to the USA as been done by Saudi Arabia than by Iran, here we go. Our soul and lives for oil.

I am a broken record. I know. But I can't stop playing. I am stuck in the groove.

LINKED!! I am stuck on messaging about LINKS.

It was great to see and hear Pres. Biden take a bow on the gun legislation being passed. It's nice to hear about his thinking about declaring a national emergency to codify abortion rights.

I only wish that he would be as forceful about VOTING RIGHTS AND PROTECTING ACCESS TO VOTING. Voting rights is the link to success in getting everything else he wants done . The people hurt the most by the lack of attention and forbearance to fight for voting justice are the very people who will vote for Democrats and the agenda they are trying to accomplish. Without protection for access to voting, and safeguards for fair and honest vote counting, the GOP will forever be in control of the majority with their RW minority. Free and fair elections is the LINK to our democracy. Gun control and reform and abortion are the benefits of our democracy. We have them because of our democracy. We do not have democracy because of them. The people who would deny us these benefits are the same people who are in power because of a bastardized, gerrymandered voting system that does not receive the attention it should.

I invite you to read my previous posts on this subject. The same people, the links, the same people, the links. If the system is corrupted, GOTV won't matter that much. The most important filibuster "carve out" of all is for voting rights...that's probably the reason it's not being done.

Hmmm..I believe there a "silent majority" of Dems out there who are going to vote in Nov.

and surprise the hell out of everyone, including themselves. GOTV

Before the election in November, the House should pass legislation forbidding anyone convicted

of taking part in the J6 attempted insurrection or any part in prior planning of it to ever hold public office at any state, local, or national level. Can that be done? Can it be codified into law? Are any convicted felons allowed to hold public office?

Before everyone gets twisted out of shape about Paul Whalen vs Brittney Briner Read the following:


Not even sure he is an American Citizen. He served in the Marines, was dishonorably discharged, and wasn't born in the USA, and no mention of gaining citizenship.

No matter what the message or how it is delivered by this administration

there is a 30% block of voters and 100% block of media that do not want hear anything positive about the economy because the MAGA administration is not in office. There is virtually nothing Biden can do about that. The big corporations that fight against workers and Democrats will not do what they KNOW they can do to make supply chains function better and to lower prices. The Trump-loving MAGAs will never admit that they are better off now than they were under Trump.

The media WILL NOT push good news about the administration like they will push negative or bad news because their owners are essentially corporate Republicans. They love their GOP because they cut their taxes and allow them to get away with all sorts of harm and crimes against consumers.

It is therefore up to those of us who love democracy, love our country, know the truth, and are not afraid to do whatever we can to remove from office those who would destroy the nation for the sake of their racism, greed, phobias and power lust.

I am miserable! I have all the money I will need for the rest of my life.

I have all the political power I ever sought and work day and night to keep it.

I have all the objects of material wealth money can buy including homes, autos, planes yachts and more.

Yet, I am a miserable human because I can't control the freedom and intimate lives of others around me who seem to enjoy sex, family, hard work, kindness, helping others, and diversity. I despise those who strive to make the fairytale "American Dream" a reality for all.

I am a Republican. I need a break. Please send me home in November to get that break.

Your GOP Senator and Representative.
