Biden should agree to a Drug Test prior to debate - provided Trump agrees to


have panel of live/real time fact checkers calling out his bullshit lies ...

There should be a HUGE Lie counter with buzzer that goes out each time the fucker lies.


And given that the panel and machines cannot keep pace with furious lying .. Trump should also inject himself with Truth Serum

"Law and Order" is nothing more than a Racist Dog Whistle

Lets face it ..Trump talking about Law Order is like a Serial Killer talking about Morals.

So when Trump talks about "Law and Order" .. He means that he will keep those Coloured People in their place..

Are any of you all following the election forecast at FiveThirtyEight ?

Trump's odds have improved to nearly one in three chances of winning electoral college based on simulation

https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-election-forecast/




I don't know what the underlying distributions (for the variables affecting the result such as voter turnout among different subgroups) are for the simulation - and it would have been nice if they provided the sensitivity analysis of the variables to the output .. but I dont see it in the data they have made avaible for the output .. But lets take it seriously .. most likely the scenarios that help Trump are increased white blue collar turnout in key states. I dont know if we can blunt that with our messaging .. there is no way to reach them .. only hope is to get our folks in force as well.


But the bottom line is We need to get the bloody vote out .. what strategies do we have other than phone banking? .. can we write letters to get people to register and vote early?

On Edit: I did not mean this to be a downer --- We still have a much better chance of winning and even have decent change ( 33% ) of a BIDEN LANDSLIDE ( defined as double digit popular vote margin) -- we can make it happen -- we need to crush those fucking bastards ..

My First OP

Long time lurker ( really long time ..like Bush's first term in office) .But here is my First OP.


I could use my negative energy to curse the heck out of Donald Trump and Republicans ... It may make me feel good momentarily, but that will make me one of them.

So for my first post ..here is something I have always found uplifting


A young Barack Obama reading from his book at the Cambridge public library. Even a 20 something year old Barack has such introspection and maturity behind him, it takes your breath away.

Enjoy:
