If Biden-Harris Don't Have an Official Campaign Theme Song, Consider


I feel like this song was written for 2020.

Those "Stand Against" Kamala Harris ads

that seem to be everywhere (one just popped up here at DU as a paid for ad) in which her eyes are covered and she is not smiling tell me that the Trump Campaign could not find a bad picture of our next VP so they had to create one. She has great eyes! When she smiles she looks completely sincere, just like Joe.

Trump under estimates the grit of American voters.

If he makes mail in voting impossible by gutting the post office, there will be big lines on election day. Huge lines. Like this

and this

And these will not be your daddy's long lines to vote. These will be angry people in masks who will be chanting as they wait. They will come equipped with food and water. Umbrellas in case it rains. Depends in case they can not "hold it" for six hours. Portable stools for those too old to stand for long. Wheelchairs for those who cannot stand at all. It will become a badge of honor to have endured in order to vote cast out the Russian supported fascist dictator who occupies the Oval Office.

And history will record it all and Trump will be remembered as the president who declared war on the US voter---and lost.

And "I voted in November, 2020" will be something that people tell their grandchildren in years to come.

It's official. Trump's "base" has crumbled. All That's Left is the Crazies.

Mika's rant proves it.


All that is left is a handful of crazies. The same people who will spit in your face claiming that the earth is flat and man never went to the moon, not because they believe what they are saying. No, they spew their craziness in order to get attention for themselves. They crave attention and the easiest way to get it is to go into Costco or Walmart without a mask. In their hearts they know that masks save lives and in their hearts they do not want their parents and children to get COVID and die. But they crave attention. And the only way they know how to get that attention is to go negative in a big way.

I feel for these people. They grew up never being told that they were valuable. They grew up unloved. The only attention they ever got was negative attention. Beatings. Groundings. Scoldings. They were told repeatedly that they were worthless. Scum. Would never amount to anything. They lack the most basic sense of shared humanity. They hate themselves and so they hate others.

The grown man who had to be carried out of a store by his own family member(possibly his son)

should be a warning to us all. If we do not nurture our children they will grow up to be this man----a man whose own children cannot respect him because he does not respect himself.

The "Karen" who deliberately coughed on another customer is a bagel shop

is a crazy pitching a temper tantrum. To her the entire world is "out to get her". How did she get this way? I don't know. Maybe the same way that gunmen who shoot up schools and churches get the way that they are.

Please mourn for our brothers and sisters who died of COVID

because they believed the President of the United States/their Republican governor/Fox News which told them "It is a hoax. No worse than the flu. Wearing masks is for tree hugging/gun control liberals.

All lives are precious and the mourning of their loved ones should be respected.

Fuck ICE 101

I heard about this from my son in college.


Petition for universities to create a one-credit course for international students called "Fuck ICE 101" that meets in person once per semester with excused absences. "Fuck ICE 102" to be taught next spring.

Young people these days are so creative.

When the Dominant Groups Blames Minorities for Their Ills, It is FASCISM

We have a country in the middle of a COVID epidemic due to a failure of leadership by Trump. We have an economy in the tank due to a failure of leadership by Trump. We have the worst income disparity between the richest Americans and the rest of us that we have seen since the Great Depression--blame Trump and the GOP Congress for that (tax cuts for the rich anyone?) We have COVID economic relief being diverted to the securely wealthy.

The working class does not know how the rent will be paid or where the next meal is coming from or even if they will still be alive next month. And yet, rather than blaming the lack of leadership in Washington, they seek to blame...

Those who have the least economic power. Those are the most likely to be disenfranchised. Those who are scapegoated as the cause of all the country's ills. This is German/Italian style WWII jack booted/goose stepping FASCISM.

Those people who think that they are being "mavericks" for refusing to wear a mask? They are fascist foot soldiers. Those who show up at peaceful protests waving around assault rifles--they are also fascist foot soldiers. Those who hurl racist insults at little girls and old ladies are the worst kind of cowardly fascist foot soldiers.

I use the word cowardly deliberately. The fascist foot soldiers do not do what they do because they are brave and bold.They do what they do because they are scared shitless. Their world is crumbling around them. And yet, they dare not bite the hand that is holding their leash. So they lash out at those that they think cannot fight back. They create a fantasy world for themselves in which COVID would go away, and they would have their dream job and their dream house if only America was white again!

Here is Paxton's definition of fascism:

"Robert Paxton says that fascism is "a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy, and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion".

Remind you of anyone?

Hint: Political attacks on Trump should focus on his WEAKNESS

and impotence and inability to get done the things his corporate sponsors and Russian overlords are paying him to do. Do not focus on his criminal acts--his base wants him to flout the law. They think that Jim Crow laws were good and the U.S. Constitution was written by a bunch of commies. The kind of political attacks that will drive a wedge between him and his base are ones that portray him as ineffective. Scared. Infantile. Weak.
