She’s almost 40 points underwater with Dems since she decided to play this role, so I don’t see how she survives a primary.

No Dem is winning Arizona after the primary until Voting Rights are secured.

Today the national eviction ban expires, because neither Biden, Congress, or the CDC did jack squat to renew it past July 31. Which is a MOMUMENTAL screwup. I have family that works with the homeless or those who are in the "At Risk at Homelessness" category. According to said family members, the people in the latter category are freaking out about this big time. People of color are the ones that are being hit hard the most. This is the sort of crap that will depress turnout for the Democrats, folks.

Apologies for the language, but getting evicted is not funny. At all.

Personally I think there is not a single chance in the world that the wife of a man who made, and continues to make, his millions in San Francisco real estate and debt collection wasn't aware of this from day one.

That they just had a voice vote that was blocked means that there were enough Dems present that disagreed with keeping it going, but leadership didn’t want to put names to it.

The Democrats want to kill the poor just as much as the Republicans, they just realize they should try to avoid saying as much in public.

All politicians want to kill non-sycophants, as well as anarchists.

It's almost like negative urges are brought forth by being involved with power struggles, no matter who you are or what you adhere to.

Pelosi is still a piece of ****.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced New Yorkers will soon need to show proof of vaccination for most indoor events:


"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." - Benjamin Franklin

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" - Patrick Henry

U.S. Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." -That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the CONSENT of the governed,-That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to ABOLISH it."

Also in the 1770’s: “you have a 50% chance of dying before adulthood due to things like disease, wonder how you’d feel if that didn’t have to happen”
 
All the conservatives, centrists, and Khive cretins eating **** on my timeline right now gives me life, after the White House back pedaled, extending the moratorium when they said they couldn't.

We never were.

And we won't.

This was patently obvious from the start.

It's almost like people should make contingencies outside of the government helping them, because they exist to keep things in lockstep for the rich to avoid the precedent that rich people can be prosecuted for their crimes, since US law is based on precedent.

We’re not losing student debt
Okay, never mind that this is complete ghoul ****, because I have nothing else to add there -- it's true and we should all say it. I'm just kind of in awe about the "didn't know student debt was a thing" thing. Mostly on the basis of the fact that I ****ing assure you that it's false.

Someone born rich and having been rich their whole lives often does have trouble understanding things everyone else has to pay for, including debt and the inability to pay for it. I don't buy it as much in this case when they're donating and suddenly the person they're donating to starts to swing another way, but one big problem is 90-95% of elected officials come from positions of financial privilege that most people don't have.

Case in point, the 600 dollar a week checks were made 600 dollars because they thought that was a comically low amount meant to just sustain them, and were surprised to learn that around half of Americans don't make that much.

And there go any chance for the republican to maybe win New York out the Window.
Depends on how Kathy Hochul does. She's got a year in offive before the next governor election. But yeah, the big talking point the Republicans will have is now gone.
