Manchin & Sinema hold the keys to keeping or losing our democracy.

Itís that dire.
The new voter suppression laws in many states (especially those that give power to state legislatures to oversee elections) are the entire ballgame.
The only way to stop those new state laws is with new federal laws that vacate them.
And the only way to get those new federal laws is to end the filibuster.
So, Manchin and Sinema change their positions on the filibuster or itís over and democracy will die and a full out autocracy will take over.

Anti Trump Repubs must become Democrats temporarily.

Itís not enough for those sane Republicans that donít buy into the Stop the Steal nonsense to say they are still Republicans or Independents trying to save or heal the current Republican Party.
We are in crisis mode with The two Macs in charge of the two Congressional bodies Repub caucus. They have bought into stop the steal and voter suppression moves.
Barring a last minute conversion by Manchin and a few other Dem Senators who are against ending the filibuster, the 2022 midterms could become the Shit$how to end all Shit$hows.
Sane Republicans have to vote with us in 2022 for the Dems to hold the House and pad the Senate majority a little for there to be any hopes at saving our democracy.
After that, they can rebuild or remake the GOP to their hearts content.

We Dems only need to follow Mayas instructions

The current Republicans have shown us.
They do not believe in Democracy.
They can not be negotiated with.
They must be driven out of office.

Why is Steve Schmidt no longer on MSNBC?

I used to really enjoy him especially on Nicolle Wallaceís show.

Political Journalist Robert Costa leaves TV gigs to write book.

I had wondered why he was never on Morning Joe anymore.
Always thought he leaned right but was basically a straight shooter.

What are the odds that Trump gave Rudy a pocket pardon?

I donít think he did.
I do think he has them ready, if needed, for himself and his family members.

Democratic Presidents are such people people

I was just thinking about how Joe Biden just loves people and feeds off of interaction with others.
It then made me think about how past Dem Presidents have been the same with Obama, Clinton, and Carter all being that way.
With GOP Presidents, you never get that same feeling of really liking to be around people except for fund raising.

Is Scott running for America's Chaplain?

Omg....the ending was a sermon. A bad one.

Watching the Wacky Right so that you don't have to.

I think we are now at the point where what is said on Fox News, OANN, Newsmax, Breitbart, and right wing radio needs to be answered EVERY DAY.
The craziness needs to be called out in one specific place each day.

Iím suggesting that CNN or MSNBC has a show devoted to this.
All of the lies, manipulation of the truth, and distortions and agendas need more scrutiny.

I know that both networks sometimes touch on the worst things they do each day.
But Iíd like for there to be one place where itís all called out to let the sane people know what the insane and corrupt are preaching to about 40% of the country.
We need daily information and monitoring of their evil actions and intents and what things can be done to blunt their efforts.

Worst Case Scenarios on Voting Rights.

Letís say that pressure from corporate America doesnít work.
Letís say that states with GOP led legislatures and Governors go ahead and pass voter suppression legislation similar to Georgia.

What then?

Will Democrats and their allies have the time, money, and expertise to try to comply with these new laws while educating the public on what is now needed for them to be eligible to vote in 2022?
Can we sufficiently motivate our voters to not give up and do whatever it takes to still vote?

And, if we do still vote in big numbers and win in some of these red or purple states, will the GOP actually try to overturn elections in states that allow their legislatures to oversee their elections instead of a Secretary of State?

FYI....I hold out little hope of passing any Federal legislation for Voting Rights with our current Senate makeup. Losing, or at least altering, the filibuster would be needed for that and we donít currently have 51 Dems willing to do so. Sigh.

Can anyone cheer me up and give me some hope on this subject.
I worry that 2022 might be a bloodbath for Dems.
