It is kind of funny because I totally think he was telling the truth about the coke orgies and as a result basically he was attacked with the political equivalent of revenge porn (and in the final instance, a literal case of revenge porn)

One must wonder… is it not criminal to release or share that video against his will? Not to defend him from the fallout, but I do find the concept of someone releasing you in a video butt naked in order to sabotage your reputation to be a very not okay thing to do.

Let it be known that the GOP machine will take you the fuck down if you dare speak out about their wild, coke-fueled orgies.

And remember we had a judge in FL strike down the mask mandate (tho it was going to expire within a few weeks).

Where’s the GQP outrage at activist judges ??

US Politics XXXV: My Insurrection Lasted More Than 4 Hours

As for Madison C,

I read a piece on him and it made me a little more emphatic for him. He’s still a loser, a sexual predator, etc

But you get a glimpse of his father and you can understand the narcissistic behavior and how he thought he could get away with everything

Then the accident that paralyzed him and his father basically gave him two options, kill himself or leave

It sounds like Madison really believed he would recover and walk again. He’s in a lot of pain, has issues wetting the bed as well as other issues that come with the conditions he suffers from

It wasn’t until he reached DC that he really became the MAGA kid and fed off of the power and fame.

This does not excuse his lying, his hate, adoration for Hitler, and anything else he did wrong.

The irony is the one time he spoke the truth, the GOP buried him.

I hope that he gets the mental healthcare he needs, that his pain goes away, and ultimately makes something productive and good out of his life.

Instead he’ll probably join NewsMax

Gas prices are headed to $6 a gallon in the US as the summer driving season kicks off, JPMorgan says
https://markets.businessinsider.com/...on-2022-5?op=1

Let's hope not.

Diesel is already above 6 bucks and driving much of the crazy inflation in our everyday items.

I’m living in a city where gas is already $6 a gallon, and because I drive a hybrid that gets 53+ miles to the gallon, I fill up maybe once a month. We all make choices, I guess.

It is a shame about inflation, agreed.

I was going to comment on how I really don’t care what the gas prices are since I barely drive my car, but in fairness we do live in a society that has less fortunate people barely able to get any car much less their choice of electrics or better public transportation.

This all goes back to our dysfunctional government of course.

the "thin red line" flag in the background is a nice touch and why is every dog on my street barking all of a sudden??

I agree. There’s no doubt that gas prices affect everyone, and especially the poor, and increased costs get passed on to the consumer.

I just find it disingenuous coming from folks who buy gigantic cars that get 12mpg. Gas prices — as if they are the #1 most pressing issue in voter’s minds and they’d vote for Putin if they could get $2 a gallon — certainly didn’t matter all that much when they actually bought said vehicle.

Clearly Biden is to blame for the inflation and high gas prices in the test of the world, too.

Much like the American fake news media was to blame for COVID

Thank you for this. The suggestion that it's a "choice" to be subjected to high gas prices is incredibly disingenuous. As though most households have $25k laying around for a hybrid car.

To even further clarify, what I’m saying is that folks buying gas guzzlers and then voting on gas prices as the most important issue aren’t actually all that concerned about the price of gas.

Because if it was their most important issue, they’d buy different cars.

These people vote in every election. The liberal / left side gets upset when 100% of their policy ideas are not enacted into law, so they give up or protest vote

The Right had understood the long game. Keep showing up to the polls. Take over at the local, state, and judicial.

It took them 35-40 years but they got what they wanted with overturning Roe.

To think they will stop there is insane. Would this video seem out of place if it was in Arabic? These people are a different side of the coin from Taliban, and the militias to ISIS/AQ

I think Biden has done an OK job overall. I don’t like that he still treats politics like it’s 1980-1990. He’s handled a potential World War with class and now NATO is about to become stronger (tho all credit should go to Putin on that one).

Would i like someone more progressive and taking Jan 6th more seriously ? Yes. Would i like the executive to do more to pressure Manchin and Sienma, yes!

But come November 2022, and 2024 I’m voting straight blue. I wish i lived in a battleground state just for the purpose of voting but no thanks to that.

If people want to see more progressive ideas come to fruition, there needs to be a long term strategy to keep people engaged. Maybe someone can unlock the key to youth turnout.

But it really feels like darker days are ahead

the key to long term success is to win by any means necessary. that may mean some of your perfect ideals may have to take a back seat in favor of incremental progress. you can't put forth your full agenda without full control.

the GOP understands this. they've played the long game. they control statehouses, they control the judiciary, and they've rigged the game. they waited on their big fish until they had all of those things in place - and now they're falling one by one.

take away the inhumanity of what they're actually doing now - it's actually impressive from strictly political standpoint. they win. and for a long time they put forth a different face - a moderate face - to hook people in. i know, i was one of them. but now? they're in control and things will likely get worse for a few years before they get better.

undoing it is going to be a decades long process with ups and downs. infighting amongst the left is inevitable, but also unhelpful. the left needs a long time strategy - they need a young face and not another 80+ year old cranky white guy (that goes for moderates and progressives) - they need to update their messaging and for fucks sake they need to get their shit together.

and please stop blaming manchin and sinema. they both suck - but this isn't their fault. you knew who they were going in. imagine where we'd be if they weren't there? the republicans would control the senate if not for manchin and sinema.

you want to really get shit done? win more seats. you have your chance here in november. stop bitching about those two and go WIN. MORE. SEATS.

you want to pack the court? okay. just know that the republicans will just follow suit in 2024 if they take back the house. and if you can't hold on to the senate? you're not getting approval for any of your nominees anyways.


we're in a shit situation due to an unprecedented global disaster... which was made worse by the previous holder of the white house.

we have a war of aggression for the first time since world war 2 in europe... which was aided along by the previous holder of the white house.

we have a radical right wing supreme court that was put in place because a small fraction of voters protested by either staying home or voting for someone else because they didn't get their way, they're "all the same," and "how much damage could he do?"

and all of this falls at the feet of joe biden - who's doing an okay job, but is in over his head. hell - ANYONE would be in over their heads right now.

but fact is the majority of the electorate doesn't pay attention to politics until it's election time - but they do pay attention to gas prices and a lack of baby formula. so the democrats are currently fucked for 2022 (and probably 2024).

it's like the parents went away and the kids threw a party and trashed the place - and then everyone blamed the parents for the place being a mess.

sucks - but that's where we are.

we need to turn the focus back on the person/party who fucked shit up to begin with in hopes that it saves the small majority we have. and we damn sure better turn out the vote on a hyperlocal level in record numbers once again.

i've rambled long enough i think.

NY Times Editorial Board Sparks Fury With Suggestion Ukraine Cede Territory to Russia: ‘Really Shameful, Guys’
https://www.mediaite.com/politics/ny...shameful-guys/

The editorial notes the “messy” situation the U.S. is in with Ukraine and laments the hard choices that must be made, while slowly backing into calling for Ukraine to consider giving up some territory to Russia.

The writers argue that Biden and NATO must stand up to Vladimir Putin and show the West is “able to resist his revanchist ambitions.”

“That goal cannot shift, but in the end, it is still not in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war with Russia, even if a negotiated peace may require Ukraine to make some hard decisions,” the editorial continues.

“A decisive military victory for Ukraine over Russia, in which Ukraine regains all the territory Russia has seized since 2014, is not a realistic goal,” the editorial argues, the line that critics were quick to pounce on.

“Though Russia’s planning and fighting have been surprisingly sloppy, Russia remains too strong, and Mr. Putin has invested too much personal prestige in the invasion to back down,” the writers argue, noting previously in the article that Putin’s threats of using tactical nuclear weapons should be taken seriously as he becomes more desperate.

“In the end, it is the Ukrainians who must make the hard decisions: They are the ones fighting, dying and losing their homes to Russian aggression, and it is they who must decide what an end to the war might look like,” the editorial adds, concluding, “If the conflict does lead to real negotiations, it will be Ukrainian leaders who will have to make the painful territorial decisions that any compromise will demand.”

The article then, with a sense of self-awareness, defends against the accusation of appeasement:

Confronting this reality may be painful, but it is not appeasement. This is what governments are duty bound to do, not chase after an illusory “win.”
