Next time some con says they vote for the economy when they vote for repubs

show them this


It has often been suggested that Republicans are better at overseeing the economy than Democrats. However, an analysis of economic performance since World War II under Democratic versus Republican presidents shows that claims that Republicans are better at managing the economy are simply not true. While the reasons are neither fully understood nor completely attributable to policy choices, data show that the economy has performed much better during Democratic a

These FACTS are available from more sources than this.

Thom Hartmann speaks of this often, that the dems ALWAYS do better, period.

It is a FACT. So NO you do NOT vote on economics, Mr. Con, you vote for repubs to enhance your RACISM and bigotry and for no other fucking reason.

Shame on COSTCO.com for not anticipating today's

traffic and allowing their site to crash.

I love Costco, most stores and corps are garbage, they are not.

But there is no excuse for this.

So here's the thing, ANY negative comment about ANY democratic candidate, and I mean ANY

whether fair criticism or not, is HEARD by several other people some of whom may very well NOT vote if they get the impression both sides are the same.

And it is tricky, for instance I dont like what Bloomberg has said about pot or strip and frisk, and I dont want that thinking in the WH, HAVING SAID THAT if for some reason he ends up the nominee, I have to act like I never thought that and support him as if I LOVE him. Cuz anything else will have the UNINTENDED (on my part it would be, some folks have this AS their intention though) consequence of planting a negative seed in the minds of anyone who hears or reads me.

Hell, I am NOT a Joe Biden supporter for several reasons NOW in the primary, but it is DANGEROUS for me to say that very often and especially dangerous for me to explain WHY because AGAIN those comments can HURT him later if he is the nominee.

The tricky part is we need to have our arguments, our "falling in love" in the primary but then we MUST "fall in line."

Right? Anybody disagree?

If you are around ANYONE who is not a fervent D party supporter DONT make negative comments about ANY of our candidates!

If the House and Senate had overwhelming majorities of patriots, i.e. democrats in 2008

and 2010 and so on, you would have a PUBLIC OPTION already, you might even have universal healthcare by now, who knows!

You would have the rich paying their fair share of the taxes.

You might have reduced costs of higher education and you sure as FUCK would have cleaner air and water and more being done about

So instead of DEMANDING your way or the highway, INSISTING your candidate be the one, how about work to elect DEMOCRATS everywhere, not just as president and not JUST your favorite candidate because for half of you or more your favorite candidate WONT be the nominee.

I am talking to both sides now, the moderates who are fearful that M4All is dangerous to propose now and those who insist that we propose it now.

Suggestion to Warren (she is the only person with a D after their name who is doing this)

so I will only address her campaign.

Dont say "taxing the rich", it sounds too liberal far lefty, etc.

I am for it, in fact I think they should be taxed MORE than what she is proposing, but WORDS and phrases matter big time, just ask Frank Luntz of the GOP and why he told them to stop calling it Global Warming and start calling it Climate Change.

I dont know what the phrase could be, but NOT that.

"Lets Go back to the good ole days when rich people paid taxes!"

Maybe something like that?

Is CENK UYGUR going to split the vote to fuck the Dems?

Anybody know about what this guy is doing in CA?

Adam Schiff and the whistleblower could be lovers, what DIFFERENCE does it make?

They could have been doing this all together (they didnt of course, Schiff doesnt know the WB) but how would that CHANGE ANYTHING?

RBG is sick today, evidently. If anything happens to her and rump/putin/mcconnell

get to put another piece of shit on the SC i wont be able to NOT scream obscenities at EVERYONE who bad mouthed Hillary in 2016 or continues to.

So many will suffer if this happens.

So fucking furious.


The impeachment hearing is going to do the opposite of Nixon's. Nixon's sort of brought the nation together, not really as there were still many cons who insisted he was great and dems are the enemy, blah blah blah. But the overall atmosphere was he was guilty and had to go.

This time the more PROOF of rump's guilt the MORE the right will resist justice and the worse it gets for the nation. So we must SHAME the cons in public and hold strong, this MUST be done!
