A Modest Suggestion about Referring to the "Other Guy"

With respect for anyone who wishes to use his or her own unique verbiage, may I suggest that we generally refer to him as the defeated former guy. Whatever term or phrase we may personally use to describe him, I believe it will be more effective if we fairly consistently use the term defeated in our terminology. It reflects reality in a way that deserves to be regularly repeated. At least that's my perception. Thank you for considering my suggestion, fellow DU friends and associates. - Dave

A Modest Suggestion

In view of Trump's level of responsibility for the violent insurrection at the Capitol on Wednesday, Jan 6th, the appropriate authority which comes into being on January 20th should freeze all of the assets of the various Trump organizations until they have paid in full for the damages and repairs to the Capitol properties.

Considering the enormity of this coup attempt and the unnecessary loss of human life in that hallowed space, this is simply a small step toward justice.

Republicans --

CANCEL THE COUP!

Conceding defeat is among the most noble of democratic norms. You will live to try again.
Please don't make fools of yourselves at this critical moment in our history. You have no idea how petty this maneuver appears to analytical people. Please stop this idiocy before you permanently soil your brand. We tried to warn you. Now, it's all on you!

SNL Appears to be Blocked Out of Our Local NBC Channel. Weird

The local news ended, with the announcement that SNL would follow, then the screen went black. An infomercial came on briefly after a few minutes. Now the screen is blank, with a message "No Signal." Brief 2 to 3 second snippets come on occasionally, but then it goes blank again.

I've never seen this happen before. Is anyone else experiencing problems viewing SNL right now?


Never Mind - It finally came on. It's a repeat, but that's what I expected.

Rachel Maddow Just Announced

That she will be interviewing Pete Buttigieg on Monday's show. I can hardly wait!

It's Unfair to Judge Elizabeth Warren's Potential Based Solely on Fund Raising

Although she's not my first choice, I have great respect for her insights into our economic system, and some of her solutions. I believe it's ill-advised to dismiss her this early in the primary process. It appears to me that she was originally more focused on her message than on fund raising, but she has plenty of time to catch up financially. In my perception, we need to remain open to her message, and to give her the support she deserves. -- Just one old guy's opinion.

Pete Buttigieg Makes First Financial Report

The Buttigieg campaign just reported that they have collected over $7 Million as of March 31st.

They will provide a breakdown of that amount later today. Considering where Pete started as an unknown, this is impressive. Not as much as some others, but not too shabby, either.

My words, not the campaign's.

I'm Old, on Social Security, and Just Finished Doing My Taxes

As a Social Security recipient for more than 10 years, I have consistently had the same withholding amount, and I have always received a Federal Tax refund of approximately $1,000. This year, however, under the "wonderful" new Trump/Republcan tax "reform" act, my taxes increased by $780, and my refund dropped to $220. My brother says I "got Trumped." A euphemism for "got screwed."

I don't know if my tax filing experience, and the intense decrease in my refund, is typical, but even if only half of us older people are going through this taxation BS, I can confidently predict that a hell of a lot of old people will definitely NOT vote Republican in 2020.

We Witnessed Real Magic This Afternoon!

Trump turned himself from a person into a urinal - good for nothing but to be pissed on. I guess the most salacious parts of that dossier were accurate all along.

Simple Question, Mr Trump - How many "fine people" on the Nazi, White Supremacist side were killed

or hospitalized? If both sides are "equivalent," what is your FACTUAL evidence of the violence of the anti-protestors? You and your mindless positions are worthless and disgusting.
