I believe in the 99%.

Yes it is and I too hope the current 'Grifting Our People' party dies a violent and painful death.

TFG is the worse thing to ever happen to Our Country.

And the current 1% owned Party of Death is an obscenity.

Yes, Party of Death:
Uncontrolled Gun Violence
Murdering innocent women via controlling thier uterus'
Death by Police for minority citizens
Death by malnutrition and poverty for millions of minority citizens
Death from a filthy environment for all forms of life
Death from an out of control Climate for all forms of life

To name just a few of it's murderous policies.

Obituary: The Republican Party (aka The GOP) 3/20/1854 - 8/16/2022 (By TLP) ⚰️ May it RIP forever


August 16, 2022 — The Lincoln Project releases the following statement on the primary loss of Liz Cheney:

“Tonight, the nation marks the end of the Republican Party. What remains shares the name and branding of the traditional GOP, but is in fact an authoritarian nationalist cult dedicated only to Donald Trump.

“Liz Cheney stood up to the lawless, reckless attack on our nation led by Donald Trump and millions of Americans saw leadership that transcended ideological boundaries. For standing up to Donald Trump and working to hold accountable those responsible for his violent insurrection, Liz Cheney risked and lost her political career as a Republican.

“The Wyoming GOP, supported by millions of corporate dollars from Kevin McCarthy, nominated a reality-denying conspiracy theorist who promotes the “Big Lie” and bends a knee to Donald Trump.

“Liz Cheney showed America what a dedicated public servant driven by principle is like; it’s no wonder today’s GOP hates her. She remains an essential leader of the pro-democracy forces in the United States today and we encourage her to continue to engage in the fight to save our Republic and protect our democracy.

“The way she fought this race has only increased her stature among people setting aside their partisan differences to fight for democracy. We thank her for her service, and look forward to seeing her next chapter. America needs her and more people like her.”

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, Donald Trump’s fiercest Republican adversary in Congress, soundly lost a GOP primary on Tuesday, falling to a rival backed by the former president in a rout that reinforced his grip on the party’s base. http://bit.ly/3pqoh4x

I am a progressive Democrat, but I stand shoulder to shoulder with my Conservative Sisters and Brothers who share my love for The Constitution of The United States of America.

We may and do differ as to the means, but we all Love Our Country, and we all are working to Help Make a More Perfect Union.

I stand up with The Lincoln Project 100%.

Have flown 8 legs since last week of June...7 had issues. Welcome to my nightmare

International = 4 and domestic =4. Multiple airlines.

1) Flight Dulles to Iceland delayed 2 hours - earlier flight was late, then door would not close properly. Plus 100% full flight, took a long time to get all passengers aboard. Crowded and overbooked.

2) Flight Iceland to Sweden - no issues. Crowded but on time.

3) Flight Sweden to Iceland delayed 2 hours, unknown reasons. Airline lost my checked baggage on arrival - took 1.5 days to send it to my hotel - but bag arrived 1.5 hours after my flight and I was notified via text at that time - still took airline 30 hours to send it to me.

4) Flight Iceland to Dulles delayed 2.5 hours, arriving plane was late, unknown cause. Crowded and overbooked. Then waited 1.5 hours to get through Customs at Dulles, only had 2 Customs agents working US Citizen line, and one walked off when his shift was done.

5) Pittsburgh to Charlotte - delayed 2.5 hours - loaded late and sat in plane on runway for 1.5 hours due to weather in Charlotte.

6) Charlotte to Daytona - delayed 2 hours because of turmoil in Charlotte airport due to cascading weather delays. Few restaurants in Charlotte airport open. Waited 20 minutes in line at bagel place only to get to counter and found out they only had a raisin bagel left, could have told line, very annoyed. Wife and I could only find a few stale packaged sandwiches at the newsstand for dinner. Did not board arriving plane immediately - waiting for flight crew. The flight in the gate next to us was cancelled due to lack of flight crew.

7) Daytona to Charlotte. Delayed 1 hour - plane late. Unknown reason. Overbooked and crowded flight.

8) Charlotte to Pittsburgh. Delayed 2 hours. Probably weather again, but airport was PACKED, and again the few restaurants were over crowded and running out of food at 530 PM. Sub place only had 3 choices out of 10, took an 45 minutes to get food. On arrival in Pittsburgh after midnight (schedule arrival was 7 PM) Ubers were charging over $100 for a trip into Pittsburgh's South Hills that normally is under $40. 4 drivers blew us off without notice after accepting before one finally took us - had to wait 30 minutes. Again news of lack of flight crews was rampant.

Weather affected some of those trips - absolutely it did.

But lack of flight crews and overbooking added to the misery. And Charlotte airport simply sucks. Because of construction, poor layout, rampant overbooking and the fact folks who are not travelling can enter airside secured areas it is operating way over capacity to the point the restaurants can't efficiently serve the crowds. Not just once, but both layovers. Charlotte airport used to be a very good experience, but now is worse then Chicago, Dallas, or Atlanta in the old days.

Airlines care more about filling that last seat and are overbooking every fight to insure full capacity, then the fact they are really inconveniencing all travelers with their greed.

The whole US Custom's fiasco at one of Nations premier airports is a totally different issue, but points to lack of leadership at that airport.

Flying sure ain't what it used to be. Travelling to NYC tomorrow on business flight - anticipating delay. Wish us luck.

Joe Biden gets shit done. Donald Trump's healthcare plan will be ready in two weeks


Just F*** Them. ReThug AG's trying to control us through our kids.

Came out Tuesday, but I just saw it 'cause I was on a vacation break.

Still, how the fuck low can they go? It seems they reach new depths every hour.

Whether or not a teen is LGBTQ is 100% irrelevant to their right to get good nutrition, and the level of need circumstances have put them in.

Just fuck them. Next week kids of color will be in their sights.



Republican attorneys general sue federal government over LGBTQ school meal guidance

July 27, 2022, 12:42 PM EDT
By The Associated Press

More than 20 Republican attorneys general filed a lawsuit Tuesday against President Joe Biden’s administration over a Department of Agriculture school meal program that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The challenge, led by Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery, claims that the federal government is attempting to force states and schools to follow anti-discrimination requirements that “misconstrue the law.”

... snip ...

In May, the USDA announced that it would include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity as a violation of Title IX, the sweeping 1972 law that bars sex-based discrimination in “any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” The directive requires states to review allegations of discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation, as well as update their policies and signage.

... snip ...

The attorneys general involved in the lawsuit filed Tuesday are from Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.

Andrew Warren: Tweet of the Day 'Together WE WILL WIN' 💑


A true profile in courage.

You are correct.

IMO Holds office because they are agreeable to the controlling 1%.

The Senate parliamentarian is not a lawmaker. Has no power to permanently change things, just advise on how parliamentary rules affect decisions. Usually the advice is taken as an attempt to prevent unconstitutional bills from being passed and avoid that whole Supreme shit show. Can be overruled by President of the Senate - the Vice President.


As the Presiding Officer of the Senate may not be, and usually is not, aware of the parliamentary situation currently facing the Senate, a parliamentary staff sits second from the left on the Senate dais to advise the Presiding Officer on how to respond to inquiries and motions from Senators (including "the Sergeant at Arms will restore order in the gallery". The role of the parliamentary staff is advisory, and the Presiding Officer may overrule the advice of the parliamentarian. In practice, this is rare; the most recent example of a Vice President (as President of the Senate) overruling the parliamentarian was Nelson Rockefeller in 1975.[3] That ruling was extremely controversial,[4] to such an extent that the leaders of both parties immediately met and agreed that they did not want this precedent to stand, so the next week the Senate altered the rule under consideration via standard procedure.[5]
