Mmmmmm discount instant systemic racism 😋

Uh-oh. 😲 Guess what ABC/Ipsos asked about in their poll. ⚡️

Linking to groundloop’s DU thread

This is a pretty big deal. ABC/Ipsos asked about Russia in a poll. Not only did it not go well, the fact that Russia is even being asked about is not good for him.
“Russia” could mean a lot of things to a lot of people and we don’t know HOW it was asked about. But still.

730 adults. Random. English and Spanish. MOE 4.0.



Independents trace the country's attitudes, with his approval falling between 30% to 33% and his disapproval landing between 66% and 69% on COVID-19, the demonstrations and his approach to Russia. About half of Trump's base -- white, non-college educated Americans -- approve of his leadership on the outbreak (50%), the protests (51%) and Russia (51%).

—-last two paragraphs of the article —-

His disapproval on his handling of relations with Russia, in particular, comes at a precarious time for the president, who has dismissed U.S. intelligence that indicates Russia paid the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan.

Trump, in an interview with Axios earlier this week, said he "never discussed" the matter in a July 23 phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and when pressed on why he didn't raise it, he said, "That was a phone call to discuss other things and frankly that's an issue that many people said was fake news."

Anyone else, like me, feel sorry for the white girl in this ad?

Sort of “dancing” at the beginning in the orange dress.
So much impressive dancing and...her almost jazz hands
It’s like they felt like they HAD to put her in there.

😁 7 Memes. 😁













Wolf Blitzer "....in the meantime a lot of people around the world are going to die"

Report on the vaccine. Wolf “Thank you for that report but in the meantime a lot of people around the world are going to die”.

Stone faced matter of fact.

We’re sitting here after dinner. TV on CNN obviously. Daughter on her phone. Me on the iPad. My wife like us is in a Peter Chang induced food coma. All three of us stopped...looked at each other... and (sorry) started giggling. It was pure Kent Brockman moment.

That was Wolf’s segue to a commercial break.

Column: In GOP plan, you can't sue your employers for giving you COVID -- but they can sue you

Excellent article but I can only post 4 paragraphs.


Instead, focus on the provision in its coronavirus relief bill that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) calls a must-have in any bill that passes: It’s liability protection for employers whose employees get sick at work.

This proposal has received scant attention in coverage of the GOP plan. But it’s more vicious than you could possibly imagine.

In their initial pleadings, plaintiffs would have to list “all places and persons” they had visited and all persons who visited their home during the 14 days before they suffered symptoms of COVID-19.

In other words, an employer could exempt itself from federal labor law by examining its “options” or deciding that maintaining a safe workplace was just too darned hard to achieve. If a business issued or posted a written policy on limiting transmission of the coronavirus, that would be enough to achieve immunity from lawsuits.

COVID relief will "allow employers to sue workers for demanding safer conditions."

This is from Wonkette. They link to the LA Times column and I’ve added it below.


Then there's the provision allowing employers to sue workers who seek damages in a COVID-19 case. That's a bit complex, so go read the column for the details, but it basically comes down to this: If workers file a lawsuit and offer to settle out of court — a pretty standard practice in liability cases since nobody wants to go to trial — the employer can countersue the workers if the case is determined to be "meritless," which of course the bill doesn't define. And in a real fun twist, while damages for the rare workers who can actually win a lawsuit are strictly limited,

Unlike the limitation on damages elsewhere in the bill, by the way, the punitive damages that can be awarded to employers bringing these lawsuits aren't capped.

The bill would even allow the United States attorney general to sue plaintiffs in such cases, just to make sure nobody's taking advantage of the poor downtrodden corporations.

In case you need this gif - WARNING language - here it is

This could come in handy with Clustertrumpers or Demon pizza sex people


I warned you


















Thank you Facebook- no really, they stepped up to the plate on this

Now my friends, family, and people from high school I’d mostly forgotten about know I’m safe.
