New York suspended Rudy's law license ☺

Four Seasons Landscaping might be hiring-that is good honest work. Anything honest disqualifies him.

Reading that the infrastructure deal that will go through may not please many on the left, but the plan is to get more of the beef through reconciliation process. This is more for show

Of course don't be surprised if the GOP still votes against it.

With the results of the NYC mayor race looking like they are, “Defund” is dead as a door nail.

I absolutely believe that we should defund the police.

I just don't expect most Americans to agree with me and speak accordingly.

I don’t disagree from a virtuous and fundamental perspective - we don’t meed to spend as much money on policing and military as we do.

But do you not see how the concept of simply defunding a critical governmental function is divisive and does not pose a solution? Similar to cancelling student loan debt, which I support still, you can’t simply invoke change without saying how you’re changing it. Police do still have a necessary civil function, similar to how the cost of education has in fact gone up. We would be so much better off getting what we want with nuanced decisions.

"Defund The Police" is possibly the worst slogan of all time. That's a big reason why people hate it so much.

I think "Police Reform" would have been just fine. Or maybe "Make Police Great Again".

Maybe if it’s made known that Police forces are teaching critical race theory the right will be on board with defunding

On this very subject, the socialist mayor-to-be of Buffalo India Walton has some thoughts on how to change the messaging:

-sigh- yeah. Unless with rank choice some how Wiley (my candidate) ends up with more votes once everything is counted.
Having just reread how our rank choice law works I don't think so. I'd love to be surprised!

And SO sorry your good gurl , and you had such a scary experience. Hoping she'll beat the odds. Please give
her an extra scritch behind the ear for me.

Yes, this is much better.

Honestly, defund is not just the wrong word, but it's an INCORRECT word. Nobody is seriously suggesting defunding - this woman has it right, it's a reallocation of funds (and not all funds).

The only thing, outside of the pandemic, that the democrats should be focused on right now is holding the House and securing at minimum two more Senate seats.

Nothing else matters without those two things. Nothing can pass.
