How does a Biden/Beto ticket sound?

Because we need Texas to guarantee the win of the election. Texas has 36 electoral votes! 36!!

And we need our ladies in their States doing the great job they already are and can't afford to risk a seat to a Republican.

Besides, I love Beto.

🌲 Go Green

WHAT'S GREEN BURIAL?:

"We believe burial is “green” only when it furthers legitimate environmental and societal aims such as protecting worker health, reducing carbon emissions, conserving natural resources, and preserving habitat.

This is what I intend to have done. Already have names the funeral homes that offer this service in the city near where I'll probably die.

A lot of info at the link, folks.

"..restores religious and economic freedom..."

When was religious freedom taken away? People are free to worship as they choose.

And "economic freedom"? Oh, they mean laissez-faire government that throws out any and all restrictions. Doesn't matter if people are hurt, just so the 1% are getting richer.

"And Judeo-Christian values under the Constitution.” WTF? Our Constitution says nothing about Judeo-Christian values. Besides, what do religious values have to do with morality, with being "a good person"? What the Right wants is all other religions to be banned in this country.


"Talking points"

We knew these rethugians can't come up with all their nonsensical, disparaging, pseduo scientific-sounding junk themselves.

Mustn't interfere with big money makers, no matter the toll.

Exactly!

+100

Horrible -
* Fewer women's rights,
* (Less spending on) education
* Fewer environmental restrictions

"Good people"?? You're kidding.

Greenland ice sheet in biggest melt in recorded history.

Greenland ice sheet is in the middle of its biggest melt season in recorded history. ...This week alone, Greenland will lose about 50 billion tons of ice, enough for a permanent rise in global sea levels by about 0.1mm.
...
According to IPCC estimates, that’s roughly the level of melt a typical summer will have in 2050 under the worst-case warming scenario if we don’t take meaningful action to address climate change. Under that same scenario, this week’s brutal, deadly heat wave would be normal weather in the 2070s.

...Altogether, the Greenland ice sheet contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by about 24 feet.

Andrew Yang urges Americans to move to higher ground because response to climate change is ‘too late’

So is my hard left (guaranteed income) son.

He is thinking ideologically not strategically. Wingers are pushing her simply as a strategic disruptor. Big difference.

Former CIA intelligence officer on John Ratcliffe

Former CIA intelligence officer, Ned Price talked with Joy Reid who substituted for Rachel last evening.

Please begin listening at the 12:30 mark:




A partial rough transcript of what Ned Price said:

"If Ratcliffe is confirmed, it will be by and large the most dangerous assault on the intelligence community that we have ever seen so far. He would be the Bill Barr of the intelligence community. He would keep all the secrets. If he sits at the top of the 17 intelligence agencies, he will keep what the president wants secret.
....
It will be inherent to his job to classify and declassify. To keep what the president wants Secret. He will have full access to all the intelligence that Mueller and his team collected over time.
...
If John Radcliffe is nominated and if he is confirmed to this post, the intelligence committee can kiss their chances of seeing those findings goodbye."

Chilling. He can classify every redacted portion of the Mueller Report. Then we'll have an impeachment investigation hearing based only on the info which is now public.



🚨OUTSTANDING!!

Thank you , Dennis.

Folks, please read and LISTEN to the tRumpcast above.

Every newspaper, every telecast should have covered this. Why aren't the Dems making more racket about this? Why doesn't this thread have a 100+ recommendations?



Sorry folks, but I just don't see justice being done.

You're right.

I'm sorry. My only offspring is 32 and knows he won't have a full lifespan. He's definitely not having children.

Most (#$@*!!θ§) people know not and, by-damn, they don't wanna know. Wheee, we're gonna go to Mars. Wheee!!


Caveat: my hubs (PhD) just retired from NASA after 42yrs & knows that further space travel is a pipedream. Get over it folks. The universe ain't gonna matter when our oxygen-producing sources are gone.

Evolve? Not us. Nor any animals. Perhaps tardigrade and bacteria that are found to survive in glaciers and lifeforms in geysers such as thermophilic prokaryotes will survive. (Yep, had to look that one up.)
Life find ways, as the movie said. But it certainly won't be us or any of our very, very distant cousins.
