Count your blessings. We're very fortunate to have him.

Without him, it would be a 51-49 split in the senate (two vote difference) and Mitch McConnell would be in charge. Is that what you want?


THANK GOD FOR JOE MANCHIN!

Does the high cost of security have you blue?

Does the high cost of security have you blue? If so, come by the store and browse through our complete selection of used guns and knives, or find what you need in our mace and tear gas department. Now we understand that many people are hesitant to buy used weapons, but all of Didi's weapons are absolutely guaranteed to kill. Now if you find a weapon here that won't kill, you bring it back and we'll give you something that will. It's on our guarantee: "If Didi's can't kill it, it's immortal.”

Joe Biden and our Democratic leadership know what they're doing...

... they aren't idiots, so stop acting like they are. They know perfectly well what's possible and what's not. They know how to best spend their time and effort. They don't engage in the type of "grandstanding" and "showboating" politics that many on the internet seem to swoon over. They are wise and they know that the type of shouting and hyper-gesticulating and fist-shaking and bluster is only effective as a companion to fundraising efforts... but in the real world, a more nuanced touch is needed.

Trust Joe. Stop undermining him by second-guessing him.

Pulled, stuffed, filled, tightened, plumped, injected, stitched, stretched, scraped, lifted, tucked… she looks just as phony and fake as one of the silicone beauties at realdoll dot com. (But don't go there. NSFW. You've been warned.)

Sarandon and wife/slave Amy are Not in the same political party.
Of course they're not. Nobody said that they are and nobody is even suggesting that (except you.). The two women are not being compared. It's clear to most all reasonable observers that each woman represents a separate thing. Mr. Westrate (whose tweet is quoted here) is illustrating a cause and effect. A beginning and an end. A path-chosen and the inevitable outcome. Sarandon (a Bernie surrogate) is the face-of and personification of this idiotic "revolution". Barrett (et al) and the consequences therein (namely, allowing Texas' "heartbeat-law" to stand) is the result. These things do not happen in a vacuum.

Keep this in mind: Divide and conquer.
I've often thought of that every time I hear certain individuals engaging in divisive smears and rhetoric such as: Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt"; or that Democrats are "feeble"; or that Democrats are "corrupt"; or that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure"; or that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent"; or that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite"; or that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans"; or that Democrats are "do-nothings"; or that Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change"; or characterizing the Democratic party as the "Coastal-Elite". ALL LIES!! ALL DIVISIVE!!

True, it's not ONLY Sarandon, but she is closely allied with those who seek to intentionally cause harm to the Democratic party. Not only is it part of the "divide and conquer" strategy that you spoke of. But it's clearly just one part of their overall "destroy and rebuild" philosophy. Sarandon, Turner, West, Moore, Uygur (and their close associates) are all a part of it.

They all have nothing but contempt and resentment for the Democratic party. What useful purpose does it serve? It's just another example of how people are oddly willing to do and say things that create an atmosphere of fear and hopelessness and negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Why are these toxic individuals defended and celebrated?

I remember when Sarandon said she was "more dangerous than Trump" too.

And then... to double-down when challenged on the wisdom of such an approach.

Making enemies of allies is not a prudent course of action. Blaming loyal and hard-working Democrats and Democratic leadership who are ALREADY focused on these issues only creates resentment and distrust. What useful purpose does it serve? It's just another example of how some people are oddly willing to do and say things that create an atmosphere of fear and hopelessness and negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

A good rule of thumb for any progressive or liberal minded individual: ATTACK AND CHALLENGE REPUBLICANS, NOT DEMOCRATS.

I wasn't expecting Bernie Sanders to be in LAST PLACE.

I wasn't expecting Bernie Sanders to be in LAST PLACE. That's interesting.

There are 50 Senators in the Democratic Caucus. 538 established a ranking, based on their votes...
...in line with the Biden agenda.

Of those 50, 35 are tied for first by voting with Biden 100% of the time. Both Manchen and Sinema are in that 100%.

14 Senators are tied at #36. One Senator is at #50.

Here are the 15 who have not voted 100% of the time with Biden, with their ranking.

Rank/Senator

36 Tammy Baldwin D WI
36 Richard Blumenthal D CT
36 Cory A. Booker D NJ
36 Catherine Cortez Masto D NV
36 Tammy Duckworth D IL
36 Edward J. Markey D MA
36 Jeff Merkley D OR
36 Jacky Rosen D NV
36 Jon Tester D MT
36 Ron Wyden D OR
36 Elizabeth Warren D MA
36 Kirsten E. Gillibrand D NY
36 Patty Murray D WA
36 Chris Van Hollen D MD
50 Bernard Sanders I VT

Trump plunged the republic into hell, but they would never admit they were wrong.

Trump plunged the republic into hell, but they would never admit they were wrong. (His actual name should be clearly associated with his failures. His name is Trump, use it.)

Just saying his legitimate name "Trump" will go a long way toward clarity in messaging...

Plus, some of us don't believe he was legitimately elected, so calling him President is, and always was, offensive.
Offensive as he may personally be, there are plenty of others who can deal with the reality that he was indeed elected, inaugurated, and served one full term. Ignoring facts and playing these games doesn't change history.

Besides, in order to have an intelligent conversation about him (or "current events" that involve him, or that are the result of him) you don't need to use the word "president". Just saying his legitimate name "Trump" will go a long way toward clarity in messaging and being able to exchange ideas and observations and analysis in a less confusing, less cryptic and ... frankly... an adult manner.

I'm happy that so many are actively taking his name out of the conversation.
All I'm trying to say is that this type of behavior truly serves no good purpose. It's a fad (and one that I hope ends soon) and is no better than other juvenile name-calling. Being able to discuss issues, current-events, history without needing a cheat-sheet of the latest fad nickname/insult is much better than pretending that such antics actually make a difference, or that Trump even cares what this small community thinks or says. (Hint: he doesn't.)
