We won the fight for the "Soul of the Nation".

OK. Now what? Joe says he doesn't want his presidency "consumed" by investigations of the trump administration. I understand the concern and I feel the DOJ will do it's job without interference from the WH. However, in order to cleanse and restore this nations "soul", the message must be played over and over again and again that WE will not sit idly by while this Nation is raped by the likes of the current administration; scumbags who purport to be real "muricans". They sicken me to no end. These slimy motherfuckers must be held accountable and pay for the damage they've done to this country. No quarter. If it take four years, so be it. A Biden presidency that will leave a legacy of true "Law and Order" may not be palatable right now, but historically it may well be remembered as the one that actually does save our democracy.

Railroads granted unprecedented FRA safety regulation waivers.

It's astonishing. These MFer's will stop at nothing. Years of regulatory provisions that keep workers and the public safe just got thrown in the bathtub to be drowned with the rest of "big government". Under the guise of Covid-19 prevention, the FRA (which BTW is being run by a former railroad CEO) gives the railroads carte-blanche to do whatever the fuck they want regarding required track and locomotive inspections, required brake tests, operational testing, and on and on and on.

The RR's are saying that they needed this due to predictable manpower shortages. That's bullshit - they have been furloughing people for the last 10 months as a result of PSR (Precision Scheduled Railroading), which was just another scheme to inflate the price of their stock.

There is literally too much to list here. Disgusting and Dangerous. Here is the link.

How do I copy & post a pic, video or pdf link into a message on DU?

I'm relatively new to message boards and I've tried a simple copy/paste. Didn't work. Hope some of the guru's here can help me out. Thanking y'all in advance.

China virus, huh?

Heeere we go. "I view it -- in a sense as a wartime president," Trump said after announcing he was invoking the Defense Production Act. Just what we need, the fucksticks rallying around this asshole as he demonizes another (race, country, opponent, fill-in-the-blank). Yep, that's the ticket. We all know the type - stupid fucks who would support another unjustified war. Another version of WMD's - Weapons of Mass Delusion.

A glimmer of hope...

So I'm at the kennel to pick up the hound after a week of traveling. Owner and I greet each other and,as usual, commence in some small talk when the discussion turns to the Covid-19 clusterfuck. She says " I want to be as diplomatic as possible here..." and I think, here we go!, But then she says, "I've never been a fan of Trump" and I literally put my hands together as praying and said, "Thank god I'm not the only one around here" and we talked quite a bit about the sad state of affairs in this country and the incompetence of this administration. Two ladies came in shortly after and the joined the discussion, which turned to the cruise ship fiascos. Everyone agreed that the lack of true leadership is the cause of the current state of affairs. All spoke well of Biden and his statement the other day. Presidential.

The reason I post this is that I live smack dab in the middle of the Delmarva Peninsula. a place redder than red. Trumpers all over. You hear the Fux noise regurgitated talking points ad infinitum. It's sickening. Forget about having an informed discussion about any policy.

Today was different. I left feeling invigorated.

My prediction.

McConnell, the conniving fuck that he is, allows a few senators to jump ship to vote to allow witnesses. Not sure of the protocol or procedure, but I think this would extend the hearings for a week or two. More incriminating evidence is presented. More outrage ensues. When the vote on whether or not to remove arrives, the decision has already been made to shitcan the orange Turd and vote overwhelmingly to convict. Suddenly, the republicans are the SAVIORS, the PATRIOTS, THEY SAVED THE REPUBLIC, AND ON AND ON AND ON, AD NAUSEUM.

What do you think would be the outcome of the 2020 election? And the next one, for that matter? Would they be favorable to the Democratic Party? Not a pretty thought. I think we'd be crushed.
