Melania's nipple pokies were an added attraction at the event. What a slut.

Warren is in her 70s, but she understands how to run a campaign in the modern age. She raised nearly the same $ as Biden in the last quarter and did so without a single fundraiser and without corporate support.

Quote:
Aides pointed to Warren's response in May to an Alabama bill that attempted to largely revoke abortion rights. After the state Senate passed the legislation on a Tuesday night, Warren and her policy team finalized a proposal to codify Roe v. Wade on the federal level by Thursday, in time for a Friday media rollout. Meanwhile, Warren reached out personally to abortion rights groups, and the in-house team prepared graphics, social media content, ads, and emails. None of these moves is unique to Warren, but the campaign sees its set-up as a way to move faster in an era that rewards speed.

Does it feel like everything is being pulled apart at the seams

Concentration camps
Pedophiles
Democrats folding and in-fighting
Climate change

And now 20 million Americans may lose their health insurance

Being pulled?

We're fully pulled.

We're a nation in absolute decline. The only question I have is how far will it fall and how long will it take.

Not ready to declare that, so far- as tough as things are.
There are a lot of smart and compassionate young people out there in this country.

I agree that the youth in this country are more compassionate, forward thinking, and more adaptable than ever

But if they don’t vote, it won’t matter.

It’s really disheartening to watch the old guard Peolsi go after the younger members. While politics isn’t as binary as some make it out to be, she’s done more to harm her own party than to Trump.

Dems couldn’t even keep a date for Mueller, moving it back to the 24th which is right before recess.

Unfortunately impeachment isn’t in the cards anymore, so all effort must be made to get voters out in such large numbers no shenanigans can stop it

We need record numbers for blacks, Hispanics, and the youth

And i still am leery it can be done

Yea. Don't be fooled. Millennials may be more progressive, but the generation coming behind them?

Quote:
The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016.

Driving the dilution of acceptance are young women whose overall comfort levels plunged from 64% in 2017 to 52% in 2018, says the survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD.

“We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant,” John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, told USA TODAY. “These numbers are very alarming and signal a looming social crisis in discrimination.”
Not so much. That hatred and bigotry have been made mainstream is having an absolute trickle down impact. We're in deep shit.

The president literally said today that brown skinned congresswomen should go back to where they came from. Will there be protests in the street? Nah. We'll be fake mad and do nothing.

Our country is a shit hole.

Yeah, that's another problem. People are too busy doomsaying and throwing up our hands and acting like it's just inevitable nothing can be done, and I'm really kind of tired of that defeatist attitude. It'd be really nice to hear more talk about things we can do to try and fight back against this crap. I think it's clear at this point that protests alone aren't enough to stop this insanity-not to say we shouldn't keep doing them when and where possible, of course, but there does need to be more action alongside that. What are people doing to try and encourage young people to vote, for instance, and how can we get involved to further make that a reality? Are there ways people can get involved to try and combat any attempts at voter suppression? What kinds of ways can we use technology to our advantage to combat all the awful stuff coming from the other side?

Just throwing a few possible topics of discussion out there, at least. Even if we don't have any definite solutions yet, I'd much rather be talking about that stuff than sitting here going through another round of, "Our country's screwed and the Democrats suck and there's nothing more we can do.", 'cause that's not exactly the attitude we should be having right now.

I mean, seriously, people keep dumping on the Democrats for not doing enough, or not doing things the right way, and I won't argue one bit that they need to get their shit together. But we voters share the blame as well, and we need to learn to sort ourselves out, too. I know this administration is exhausting as hell, but giving up and resigning ourselves to a bleak future isn't exactly the attitude we should be having right now.

Some theories on this have tonso wirh thr increased emphasis on the “T” and the non-binary aspects of queer culture.

Understanding that gay people are people is one thing; but attempting to fully theorize gender out of existence might be a bridge too far for some?

I dunno.
