I'm still thinking on this. Beginning to form an idea.

It shows the difficulties some representatives have in trying to win the election when the left wing of the party has very different priorities than what her constituents have. Plus, she warns about the picture that the current polls are showing.


It may be a nerve-wrecking couple of months then.
Yeah, I saw that on democratic undergeound yesterday.


Hopefully this they are wrong!

Wait, you don't think the Senate majority leader would follow the Merrick Garland precedent and let people vote and decide?

This is settled law. We all know it’s impossible to replace a SCOTUS judge in an election year.

Impossible.

Some serious Millionaires just asked to have their taxes seriously raised.
Courtesy of DU.


Quote:

Raise taxes on people like us. Immediately. Substantially. Permanently.’


"SNIP.....

Over 80 men and women worth seven figures from the U.S., U.K., Germany, New Zealand, Canada and the Netherlands calling themselves the “Millionaires for Humanity” have signed an open letter asking their governments to “raise taxes on people like us. Immediately. Substantially. Permanently.”

“So please. Tax us. Tax us. Tax us. It is the right choice. It is the only choice.”

The signatories include Walt Disney Co. DIS, +2.09% heiress Abigail Disney, Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Jerry Greenfield, former BlackRock managing director Morris Pearl and “Love, Actually” director Richard Curtis.

Some, like Disney and Pearl, are also members of the “Patriotic Millionaires” club, a couple hundred ultra-wealthy Americans who have pushed to be taxed more to help close the wealth gap.

The “Millionaires for Humanity” note in their new letter that they are not driving ambulances, restocking supermarket shelves or delivering food as essential workers have been doing throughout the pandemic. “We owe a huge debt to the people working on the frontlines of this global battle,” the millionaires write. They add that 70% of health care workers are women, and most essential workers are “grossly underpaid” while putting themselves and their families at risk of contracting the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 every day.

......SNIP"
The Dali Llama talked about enlightened self interest. These multimillionaires can see that a Society has more fairness, and social safety net will have a better workforce, and areas and people who have been degraded in some form or fashion that when their lives are improved there's a certain vibrancy to the society that's in the air. Maybe some don't always want to live a totally gated in and removed from most of the rest of society.
It's thought imho.

They don’t make 5’5” statues. That one has been alive since the civil war.

She's far more likely to have used that in her "kitchen" than a can of Goya beans.

Pandemic is destroying lives and businesses but it’s nothing compared to the war on beans
