Planning for 2024 should include pre-emptive Niki Haley attack

That cowardly woman who betrays every American of color to advance her political ambition deserves a take-down starting now until the next presidential election. Her career should be over before the primaries. She should not live down her work in support of orange fuhrer. We can't let her run as a 'moderate' who suddenly finds kinship with people of color.

Let this be as lesson for Nikki Haley in 2024

Don't fuck with democracy. You will lose.

I'm going for a long run... the happiest and most free

I've felt in a very long time. Thank you and congratulations Pres. Biden and Madame Vice President Kamala Harris.

Will this be the last election to suffer from the residual angst of racial integration?

My generation (I'm in my 50's), was among the first youngsters to be educated in integrated public schools entirely.

So, even in progressive California where I grew up and even though I was born about a decade after the Brown decision, racial tension ran high in public schools. I remember fights between the groups of white kids and groups of black kids. I remember very clearly a white classmate saying, "I don't want to fight Mexicans. They're my friends." If you're white, and these events shaped your upbringing, you were on the vanguard of dramatic seachange in American culture. It must have been disruptive and maybe even disheartening to see your privilege slip away.

You would have also been at or close to the peak of your career and earnings power when Barack Obama was elected. If you looked around at your middle-aged self and compared yourself to others that you thought you'd be ahead of, you might be further discouraged. How did all these people get ahead of me, you might ask? The woulda, coulda shoulda thoughts are hard to tamp down as anyone who has gone through a middle-age crisis will tell you.

The good news is, my generation is slipping past its peak. In another few years, we will start to retire.

Americans who have always had integrated schools, and who aren't shocked that a black man was president will take our place.

And the world will be better for it.

We're just like North Korea

When dear leader gets sick, we get to watch all kinds of "professionals" tell us he's in great shape, and not to worrry.

These sideshows are so predictable.

In a few weeks, I expect a hearse and convoy to pull out of Walter Reed while Kelly Conway comes to a bank of cameras to declare that it's a parade of patriots, and "our dear leader is eternal."

covid, racial injustice, BLM - in the first 30 minutes

WOW. This is really well done. It's relevant and timely and authentic. Perfect for our time. I will remember this convention for a very long time. Probably tell my grandkids about some day.

it's a win-win: wear mask (defying trump) or die (supporting trump)

Either way, Magats enable the "liberal" agenda.
Karma feels really good right now. This is delicious.
