I'm grateful to the scrappy kid from Scranton.

Joe Biden is turning out to be exactly the president America needs right now. With literally everything - including the immediate future of the planet itself - hanging in the balance, we need a fighter.

Keep telling it like it is, Joe. You're talking to me and millions of us.

(And props to Beto and Fetterman for their plain talk campaigns, too. And that Native woman in Alaska who just beat Sarah Palin.)

P.S. To the MSM: we're not buying what you're selling anymore. The editorial board of the Washington Post - I'm talking to you. We're at war for our democracy. What side are you on?

Beware those carrying fear, uncertainty and doubt about Democrats.

If you hear or read something that makes you think less of Democrats, think about who stands to gain if Republicans take over Congress in this fall's elections. There's a lot at stake. Who will make billions of dollars if the Republicans are allowed to fully enact their sociopathic plans?

The invasion of Ukraine isn't going well for Putin. Who would he want back in the White House?

If Republicans take back the majority in just one house of Congress, they will block every single effort by Biden. Biden will be blamed for everything that happens and Trump or someone like Trump will be elected in 2024.

Your friends, relatives, online buddies may be well-meaning but the propaganda is real, it's everywhere, and it's designed to be very persuasive. Beware of the agenda behind negativity aimed at Democrats.

An example of racism from the so-called "far left."

The first response is right on target. I know many people are frustrated that the Democratic Party isn't progressive enough. But the problem I see with some of the alternatives - such as the Democratic Socialists - is that the very real lived experience of black and brown people is ignored and even - as in this case - mocked by white people who consider themselves "progressive."

Do better. Be better. Even this older white woman knows that discrimination against black people for the way they choose to wear their hair is real. And it's deeply racist.
