After all the talk about criminality re Jan6, what about CRIMINAL INTENT.

There is a slew of evidence that actually shows and proves INTENT. What else do they need? DAMN IT!

Question for the House

Since the GOP was all for Trump pouncing on NATO allies for not contributing enough to help themselves, why don't blue state governors pounce on red state governors for not taxing their state citizens for not contributing enough to their own tax base to help themselves? Why do blue states have to continue to contribute heavily to the Federal coffer but the red states get proportionately more Federal aid than blue states?

Is it time for those attractive retirement states to tax incomes at state levels just like the blue states do?

So, Netflix lost 200K customers?? I think I may know why if my friend (now acquaintance) is correct

I can't believe I did not sense this from this person whom I have known or thought I knew for about 20 years. In conversation he mentioned that he had cancelled his Netflix about two months ago. I asked why, since I enjoy the family plan on Netflix and think their offerings are pretty good. Friend: " just got tired of their bullshit movies and documentaries." Like what, I asked. " Like all those anti-Hitler documentaries and all those "woke" series and movies. My brain went into tizzy right then. I can't even begin to relate the rest of the conversation.

As I think back over some of our conversations and small talk over the years I can now see clearly what I missed and dismissed as freedom of thought and different strokes for different folks. I can't prove it but I have a strong feeling that there is a RW movement that is trying to "cancel" any culture except their RW-alter reality-culture. I think Netflix is being Disney-ed right now. What is happening to Disney in FL is creeping into Netflix and other popular streaming services.

My advice, copy and download what you can. It may not be accessible later. Tell me I am wrong...I hope I am.

So, it looks like the MAGAs have a new word for their hateful diatribes. "Groom" "Groomers"

Is this taking the place of CRT?

Engages couple going to call the male of the couple? The bride and.....?

Please Elon, find another planet for these hateful idiots.

WAIT! Is it my eyes or my TV? I just saw the war criminal Putin on MSNBC. His hair looked orange.

Is this some kind of a mark of a self-aggrandizing, lying, treacherous. tyrant? What is with these guys? I thought I saw a picture of Kim with a tint of orange.

There is no question in my mind that Trump was playing out of Putin's playbook and it worked for him

Call all legitimate media reports "fake news"
Lie , lie, lie. When that seems to not work double down on the lie. Your supporters will believe you and not their lying eyes and ears.
Accuse your enemies of making stuff up no matter what the evidence shows.
When shit goes bad, blame someone else, fire someone and move on.
Talk about the weakness of others (even if you make it up).

Rinse, and repeat. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Never worry about who gets hurt, who is killed, or who is imprisoned. Keep the lie going.

Your braindead supporters will believe you no matter what and you will look strong in their eyes.

Just thinking about the report on paying FOX viewers to watch CNN for a period of time...

The Democrats ought to invest some money in paying a few thousand FOX viewers in red precincts where polling shows potential for Democratic wins or in red precincts within key states.
We sure spend enough money on other campaign stuff so what do we have to lose. It looks like the some changes might be feasible to give us a few wins in close races. DNC are you out there?

Need some help from DU.

Is there a market for old coins?

My 98-year old aunt passed. She had two children and one grand child...all preceded her in death. I am her sole heir. It appears that her late husband had left her with a stash of old coins...around 300. I haven't had a chance to go through all of them. Some date back to early 1700.

I am so afraid of being swindled but I still want to sell them for as much as I can get to help some family members who have been really struggling through the pandemic. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
