shit would stop, but that doesn't seem to be the goal of some folks. We, the liberals, the progressives and the Democrats are busy fighting the GOP and Trump. Those who keep seeing venom whenever anyone questions the actual words by certain Senators, well, they're too busy attacking us to understand where the fight actually is.

Either help or step aside, we don't have time or energy to waste on the nonsense that has erupted around here in the last week. It's hard to learn that the sources one had put so much faith in were not what they purported to be, but the level of provocation and the attacks really need to stop.

If it's okay to criticize Democrats like Manchin and Heitcamp for the things they're saying, then we need to be able to do the same with Independents who caucus with us. These double standards and the not exactly "friendly" fire need to stop, enough damage has already been done and we have a LOT of work to do.

Despite the media narrative, the Democrats are not divided, or are we "feeble". We're the ones out there getting shit done, while dealing with interference of folks like Cenk and his brigade of folks that seem to be all about attacking Dems.

Enough already with the divisiveness.
