When Biden wins and the Dems have control of both houses

This is when we have to be more active and not lose focus. Republicans and the right wing media are at their best when they are in the minority and the ‘94 and ‘10 elections are big reasons why we are in the mess we are in now. Those elections were both tsunami elections in which 1994 took us a long time to climb out of, and we still haven’t got out the 2010 hole.

NBA is back!

And I like how they aren’t trying to pacify certain elements of America. They went all in with the “Black Lives Matter” on the court and know who their fans are. The league may not be as popular as the NFL, but they realize that they can still be a billion league even without the bigger numbers.

What his staffer wrote and doesn’t understand it. His delivery is awful.

America's economy just had its worst quarter on record


GDP drop and 1.4 million unemployment claims, but this excerpt is what I found fascinating:

Next week's July jobs report is expected to show another 2.3 million jobs added. That would bring the unemployment rate down to 10.3%

I already know the Biden/Harris conservative talking point

“This is the guy that wrote the 1993 crime bill and she is the former Attorney General of California. They have put more black people in prison than anyone, and blah blah blah”.....

so now the “law and order” party is going to be so concerned about black people and the criminal justice system....

And unfortunately there are going to be some liberals and black people who are going to criticize the ticket for this reason, as if the alternative is somehow better...smh

Trump will throw our first pitch at Yankees game

In the past he as declined too at baseball games, now he will? He was scared of being booed, but now that there will be no crowd he has built up the courage.

Free campaign advertisement

Why is the media continuing to give this guy free campaign advertisements by showing his "coronavirus" briefings

Another 1.4 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week


Welp, if the last two jobs reports were an indicator, this means that when the next one is released America would have created about 200,000 jobs and the unemployment will have went down again. But no one is cooking the books
