Thank you so much for the heart

and for your support of DU. That was very kind and I appreciate being thought of, thank you.

why GOP wins sometimes, imho

It is sort of amazing that republicans win at all, they are constantly exposing themselves as either idiots or awful mean people or both.

I think they reason they win sometimes is that they will all stick together and toe the line and agree to anything even if they know it isn't true. They will stick to it.

We, on the other hand, will argue about any damn thing. Look at DU. People are constantly looking for nuance of some story and trying to communicate different points of view. Republicans, man, they think what they are supposed to think.

I know I am over simplifying. I also know that by posting this to a bunch of democrats that most people will disagree with something about it.

I think that it is more healthy to have different opinions and hash them out rather than fall in line like a bunch of authoritarians, but I think it helps them "win." Like most of you, I learn more from people I don't agree with than from people I already agree with. I learn more from listening than from talking most of the time. But I don't think "they" are interested in "learning."

We should have like a safe word. A like "time to circle the wagons" signal.

NRA Coolers

a while ago ProfessorGAC posted that the NRA offered to send a free cooler to new members.

Way, way after the fact, while driving to town this morning, my subconscious mind finally broke through with the joke. Timing is everything.

Q: What do you call an NRA cooler?
A: A "Nyetti"

I found one thing i can think trump for

My 401 K May be down 7.5% but a pound of tofu was $1.44 at Walmart

High School Vice Principal

Soddy Daisy High School Vice Principal tells athletic team boys that they can not wear athletic shorts during school, and to blame the girls because "girls ruin everything" then goes on to explain that has been true "since the beginning of time" with Adam and Eve.


joke stolen from reddit

I met a genie today who said he would grant me one wish.

"I want to live forever," I said.

"Sorry" said the genie, "I'm not allowed to grant wishes like that!"

"Fine," I said, "I want to die after the Republicans get their heads out of their asses!"

"You crafty bastard," said the genie.

NRA

I just googled it, and apparently the NRA has 5 million members. What if 6 million liberals joined, could they stack the NRA elections and gain control of it?

Matt Lauer fired by NBC

they are live talking about it. Sexual allegations.

edit: not a lot of detail. The other today show hosts only heard just before airing. They are shook up. They read a statement that said basically there were credible allegations of inappropriate conduct.

Here is the NBC twitter:

Beverly Young Nelson 'wasn't the type to seek attention'

Source: Birmingham News

During her press conference, Nelson showed her 1977 Southside High School yearbook with an inscription she said was Moore's.

In 1977, Nelson was Beverly Young, a sophomore at Southside, in the same class as Moore's future wife, Kayla Kisor. Southside is in Etowah County outside Gadsden, just over the Coosa River.

Kayla Moore posts support from 50 pastors; 2 ask for their names to be removed

Source: Birmingham News

Kayla Moore, wife of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, shared a letter on Facebook over the weekend indicating support from more than 50 Alabama pastors. Not all the pastors said they gave permission for their name to be be used on what appears to be a recycled letter from before the GOP primary, however.

----

After the letter was published on AL.com, Tijuanna Adetunji of the Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery, said she was not contacted about the letter and did not give permission for her name to be used.
---
The letter appears to be a version of one already posted on Moore's campaign website. That letter, posted prior to the primary, contains all the same wording as below but with three extra paragraphs at the top, including a sentence referencing the Aug. 15 vote.
----
"The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore," said Endicott.

The letter of endorsement from 50 "pastors" (some weren't really pastors) was posted to facebook by Moore's wife, Kayla. Apparently what she posted was a letter from back in August before the allegations came out.
