Census

I read a piece where NY and California will lose seats and Florida, Arizona, Texas and NC will probably gain seats. For what its worth

My lifelong Republcan mother just called

She is 70. A lifelong Republican. Never voted for a Democrat. She's white, has a Master's in Nursing and an amazing grandmother to my 18 yo HS senior. She said she is so alarmed by this Iran conflict and her grandsons future that she is going to vote for Joe Biden. She said she couldn't support "any of the the rest of them because they are too far left". Now...she knows I supported Bernie in 2016 and I'm a pretty liberal guy but I told her that's ok, I understand and Joe will be alright.

Question on war declaration

As with Iraq does the entire Congress vote to declare war or simply one chamber?

Iran conflict WILL NOT help Trump

Any retaliatory military action after 9/11 was going to help Bush. Americans were pissed, United and ready ( valid or not). This is totally diffrent and you will not see unity as you did on 9/11 when most Americans felt personally attacked. I can't imagine being advised that this was a politically smart move

Unsceintific and Useless poll

So, my son is a senior in HS and I had 11 teen boys over last night. All are 18 or will be 18 before Nov 20. I asked them who they are voting for...I live in a rural town about 40 miles from Nashville. I support Biden reluctantly... So..... 8 Bernie, 2 Pete and 1 thought Beto was still in the race. Now, to be fair, these guys are not particularly engaged or active in politics. They had never heard of any of the candidates except Bernie, Beto, Biden and Pete.

Racism in Europe

is off the charts. Friends there always tell men that it's worse there than here. Today, as I watch the Tottenham v Chelsea match, stadium announcements threaten to stop match due to racist chants. I've never seen such behavior in the states at sporting events. What a disgrace.

I miss Beto but Pete

is growing on me. I support Joe but live in Tennessee so moot point really. As someone who cut my activist teeth with Bill Clinton.- there is simply somthing to young candidates.

Red face

I caught a few minutes of the rally. His face was red as beet. I was quite taken aback. He leans against those podiums. Very odd stance. I bet his BP was through the roof.

I can only dream of

A Jeffries/Kennedy ticket taking on Trump. Old versus Youth. A new generation. Reminisce of Clinton Gore.

150 House Democrats voted for border wall funding

the $1.3 trillion spending bill that just passed House with support of leadership included 1.4 billion for new border wall funding.
