The case for background checks

It really gets old with me when I hear, the shooter legally bought the gun, as if that's some rationale. The fact that the Boulder Colorado shooter legally bought his gun makes the case that we need to change the present laws, we need comprehensive background checks. That man in no way, shape or form should have been allowed to own a gun.

Trump's taxes

10 out of the 15 years before Trump became president he paid zero federal income tax. In 2016 and 2017 he paid 750 dollars.

Why do I find this odd? I do my taxes every year, by paper, and I never come up with the exact same federal refund from 1 year to the next.

So first of all, I am asking, is it not odd that Trump paid the exact same amount of taxes in 2016 and 2017?

Second, those 10 years he paid no tax, were those 10 years evened out to zero? Did he get a little bit of money back? If Trump's 10 years of not paying taxes came out to zero, is that not odd?

Any tax experts out there?

State's Rights to suppress the vote.

This statement pisses me off, that states have the right to decide how they vote. I heard Joe Manchin say that last night on Cuomo, and Cuomo agreed with him.

The problem with me is that it is just one party in the state that decides how to run elections. All of the states that are controlled by Republicans but vote state wide for Democrats are rigging the election for Republicans, like they are doing in my state, Pa.

If states want to change how voting is done then it should be done by a state wide referendum. The way that Pa. is gerrymandered the Republican party will never lose the majority control.

Sure, it says that states control their own elections, but it doesn't say that one party in that state can control how elections are run against the will of the majority in those states. If Republicans rig the rules to favor themselves then Democrats will never control the House.

This is the most serious problem that we are facing right now. There are hundreds of bills that are written up in states to suppress Democratic voting. I got my notice asking if I wanted to vote by mail again this year, I do want to vote by mail again, guess what, this year I have to provide my drivers license number. Some states are trying to eliminate mail in voting. This is serious stuff and it needs addressed now.

The Senate better not mess up the Rescue Bill,

How about getting all Democrats together and stripping out the $15 minimum wage and voting on the House Bill.

Mr. Manchin is already suggesting cuts. The longer this drags out the more nervous I get.

Daily Press Briefings,

So it looks like Mrs. Greenspan and Mr. Toad won out over the daily press briefings. I mean what a freaking let down. I don't watch morning cable anyway but I would watch the daily press briefings. I can't believe that Greenspan and Toad had better ratings.

The narrative from the MSM,

and Democrats need to push this narrative, is that the GQP want Democrats to fail, want the country to fail.

Not the bs that Dems must make concessions and water down the rescue Bill. Make no concessions but if Republicans and Manchin vote it down they need to shoulder the blame.

I wonder what Trump has on Lindsey?

I mean it all started after a golf outing I believe. Even after the insurrection Lindsey gave a passionate speech about how he was done with Trump and then he wasn't. I don't even read the police reports in my small town's newspaper, it's not my business to see who was arrested for this and that. I admit that I would like to know the dirt on Lindsey.

Anyone else other than me,

who had to turn the trial off after watching 3 minutes?

Take away the GQP's funding

The Congressional GQP cares about keeping power and to keep power they need money. We can't fight them using reason. I read it here; it is impossible for rational people to debate irrational people. We need to go after the latter, their money.
According to a report from Politico, Republican Party leaders are furious that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has thrown its support behind policies being proposed by newly-elected President Joe Biden. We need to go after the funding of all of the traitors who vote to acquit. We need to find out who is funding them and then put pressure on them to stop.

Follow the money, always. Ask the donors if they want democracy or nihilism? Ask them if they want our country to look like Somalia?

Just my 2 cents because I know the mindless GQP followers, I live among them and they are irrational.

This is a positive energy thread for Jamie Raskin and his team.
