Lilly Liver Liberals

Democrats in disarray, hand wringing, etc.

Since my first time working full time in a campaign, local and state elections, I've heard these terms applied to Democrats every election cycle. Are they true? Do we run away from confrontation, jettison any candidate that might make us look bad? Does fear of failure cause us to appear weak and indecisive? Our opponents set this trap every election and use what ever abilities they have to magnify it to the masses.

So are we lilly livered, in disarray, hand wringing Democrats?

Just putting this out there. Just my $0.02 as food for thought.

Give $5 or whatever to show you still support Joe.

Go Joe and Kamala!

4 more years!

Virginia 2nd Congressional District

Curious who people are supporting in this primary. Not really familiar with either candidate and would like to get a feeling of others who might be more in tune with this district.

Happy counting!

Atari is BACK!

Gaming like it’s 1977 again!

From Atari Interactive, Inc. comes the Atari 2600+, the highly anticipated refresh of the Atari Video Computer System (VCS), Atari’s legendary console that was first released in September 1977. Launching on Nov. 17 and retailing for $130 at Atari, the Atari 2600+ ships with the console, a standard controller and a 10-in-1 games cartridge. The cartridge includes the following games: Adventure, Combat, Dodge ’Em, Haunted House, Maze Craze, Missile Command, Realsports Volleyball, Surround, Video Pinball and Yars’ Revenge.

The timing of the Atari 2600+ couldn’t be better. Retrogaming — that is, playing video games from the 20th century — is alive and well in the here and now. Retrogamers enjoy the nostalgia, the simplicity of the gameplay and, in some cases, the pulse-pounding challenge. Sure, these games may be older, but at times, they required the brains of a Cray supercomputer combined with the reflexes of a tween hopped up on Pop Rocks. (We’re looking at you, Gravitar, with some serious side-eye.)
