Don't give them another chance

For four years they had the presidency and half of congress. Yes the republicans ruled our government for years and years and what did America get?

A circus. Not an enjoyable circus, no, just a circus of ill-tempered ugly clowns making stupid things happen.

Take Jan. 6. How stupid was that? The outcome was 1,000 + arrested and the world looking on in astonishment that the world power telling them we are all about democracy was a lie.

Jan. 6 was not about democracy, it was about monarchy. It was an attempt to throw out the vote and keep the loser of the votes as the leader.

Republicans across the board still haven't repented their support for the insurrection and destruction of democracy. Over half of the elected republicans in congress voted to keep dear leader over the clear choice of votes from the people of America. It was as anti-democratic as possible, yet they did just that, and still hold to that.

The chief clown was one whose best foreign friends are enemies of America. The chief clown denied science of not only global warming but also the covid virus. He got on stage daily and clowned his way through his, and his only, facts.

Yes, this is a condemnation of republicans.

Hope is that republicans will end our misery and tell their clowns the circus is over, go home, and stfu.

Asked the young lady cashier if she votes

She said yes, she registered at the DMV when getting her license

I mentioned to her that if Democrats had their way she'd be making $15 an hour. She looked surprised. She did not know that.

Good news, bad news about climate

First Solar panels are being installed at an ever increasing rate. Hope is that eventually dirty coal plants will be replaced due to Solar being cheaper than coal. Also solar can be used to charge EVs so one will eventually be able to drive almost free of costs and emissions.

Bad news is the methane levels are spiking. Oil pumping is a large part of why methane is escaping, and oil in the US has never been pumped at higher levels than now,

Then there is the buried in ice methane that is escaping due to warming. Science says the methane escaping in the Arctic is about to hit levels which will increase warming above and beyond anything we have seen.

So, buy solar, get an EV if you drive a lot and vote to reduce dependence on all fossil fuels. That way your contribution to climate change will be limited

I think Joe Biden is reading DU

He is saying the same things as what I read on DU some months ago. Biden hears the people like no president ever has because he reads DU?

Lies and BS are coming to an end

For years now republican lies have flowed like water over the falls. Nothing stopping the flow and like a river just kept coming.

Today the flow is slowing. Slowing because justice is blocking the flow.

The damned lies about America first, stolen elections, denial of realities and thefts of American tax dollars has damn near ruined America and the fools who believed the lies.

The flow has almost stopped, and what remains is just a burble of the past. The lead liar is coming to justice and the sooner the long arm of the law squelches the last breaths of certain someones, the better.

The list of someones is long. And then there is the media which splashed the lies across their money grubbing pages and screens.

Republicans are to blame for these years of torture of democracy. But democracy will win, just like it won over other historic republican torture schemes. Of that I have faith.

Faith because of people standing tall and rejecting the lies. Faith that real Americans see thru the bs and will not ever allow the liars to gain advantage again.

An EV in Every Garage

It's time the USA sells a cheap EV so that everyone can own one, save gas and save the planet.

Republicans are gonna hate this idea: The government shall put together a committee of car builders whose purpose shall be to design an econonical EV produced from all American parts. The car will have a standard chassis and use parts off the shelf when it can or contract with suppliers.

A cost of just $10,000 wil be the target price, making it very affordable.

And EV in every garage will be what we have in just a few years.

Sociaism ... No! ... Where?

Are Democrats socialist? Is America a partly socialist country?

How's this grab ya? Politics 101 for 2024

I think back to when I was young. We got most of our news from papers and the hour long nightly news. Back then the media was not so slanted, so we were fairly informed.

The young these days are informed via the web. And the web is slanted toward freedom and openess. Two traits the pubbies do not favor. So we need to figure out how we use the web to spread our information. The young need to hear from us and how we want them to be free and informed.

AOC, and others like her, are the leaders we need. Not only is she younger than us, she is in touch with people her age and she is really learning politics very quickly. How's come I almost never see her on DU?

IMO, we must not get too deep with our explanations. Memes are the in. We spill a few tactical memes, the web provides the background and the pubbies become scattered and on their heels wondering what hit them.

About LiberaBlueDem

Been on FB for years but after making so many trumpers mad they canned me. Found DU and been reading for a few months and know this is where this old liberal (almost 67) belongs. I intend to inspire the youngsters to support and vote Dem since Dems are the only viable future
