Be pissed off! RANT! Spend an hour in your "screaming closet". BUT, do NOT

give up.

Please try to avoid fatalistic predictions that may discourage some of "ours" and bring smiles to the faces of many of "theirs".

Get away from politics for a day or two if you're overwhelmed, but then get up off your butt, square your shoulders and get back into the fray.

Recent announcements are even more reason why we need to "pull out all the stops" during this next year and increase our numbers in both houses of Congress.

"Whatever it takes!"

2. This is not exactly the first time Manchin said he wouldn't vote for

our big bills and had people bouncing off the walls. It's not that it doesn't matter, he's drawing a line, ball to us. I don't know offhand if it's the first time for this particular blll or the second or third.

I learned a long time ago that it's a lot better for my mental health to mostly ignore the daily reports of sausage making. Even normal legislation typically takes years to become law. Tune in for the end because imagining that deeply flawed, often misleading and information-free daily reporting is meaningful and informative is for suckers and masochists.

Know who and what our people on the front lines are and realize they inevitably believe even more in what they're devoting their lives to than I can from out here, and that's a lot.

13. Fwiw, I believe people whose behavior matches what they say

they'll do are a thousand times more honorable than those whose actions betray the virtues they claim. Being too thoughtless, hypocritical or extremist to understand the difference is an explanation but not an excuse.

Manchin makes me want to tear my hair, or better his, this is NOT the development I wanted for Christmas, but he is what he says he is. His voters in WV, who know him well, basically have the kind of Democrat he told them he would be.

3. It's also annoying to see multiple threads on the same subject.

There needs to be thread combining so Iím not trashing so many threads.
Especially annoying when everyone is trying to he the ďfirstĒ to break news. Check the board first before creating a thread. Canít tell you how annoying it was when RBG died and EVERYONE was trying to be the first to post it!

4. Exactly. Time to Retrench and Fight Back.

Beware of those who pretend to be on our side, but who are really trying to keep us from doing things.

The hit dog yelps.

5. 🤔 "screaming closet"? I LIKE that! 😄 Gotta take a break here & there for...

either screaming, rest, or fun (don't forget that - it's crucial)!

Then we keep on keeping on!

9. Well Said!

We've largely blanked the boob-news here and I'm barely scratching even the NYT these days, but let no negativity take over. There is a lot to do and share and agitate for!

Not to mention Hope!!

12. The worst that could

happen is for our side to start saying they aren't going to vote in the Midterms. It is so clear that we need to win more elections. You can't move your agenda forward with such a slim margin.
