PHOTOGRAPHER: "Smile, Andrea!"

ANDREA: "I am smiling!"

Hey Trump, FUCK YOU! (Keep Counting!)

People who encourage such things are trying to dilute the Democratic Party, and in states where such things are taken into account, this could also affect how districts are redrawn which would ALSO dilute or weaken the influence of the Democratic party.

All I'm saying is that ANYTHING that serves to weaken or divide or dilute the strength the DEMOCRATIC PARTY is something that ONLY BENEFITS the Republicans and Russia.

When it comes to national elections, we are a two party system. Until that changes, anything that anyone does to undermine the Democrats only serves to help the Republicans.

According to Jane, they have a frosty relationship with Biden.

Joe probably wants cabinet members who respect him and who support his agenda and vision and plans.

Like a monster in its death throes... the synapses are firing, the body is flailing without a conscious purpose... the cortex is limited to its basic subconscious and instinctive will to survive and escape danger. The monster struggles violently and in great pain... but it doesn't realize that it's already dead. The fight is over --- except for watching it twist, contort and writhe in physical and emotional agony.

That's been going on in all corners of the Internet. Many FUD spreaders.

Many hand-wringers. Many "predicting" (promoting?) their doomsday scenarios. Many expressing regret, doubts, fears... and I have to tell you, those types of posts go far beyond the mere act of "seeking comfort" among like-minded individuals. They, instead, are doing little more than fear-mongering and trying to DE-motivate people. I even see it here from time to time.

All I'm trying to say is that we should be on the lookout for it. Call it out when you see it. Don't let it get to you and pour cold water on it so that their toxic way of thinking doesn't spread to others.

It serves NO useful purpose at all. It's just another example of how people are oddly willing to do and say things that create an atmosphere of fear and hopelessness and negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.



Lindsey's delicate and soft-spoken Southern Gentleman mannerisms won't help him now.

Bye, Lindsey!

Nobody is doing that.

And here it goes... cue the anti-Bernie rants
Nobody is doing that. But I can tell you that what we're hearing from that camp is clearly anti-Biden and a backhanded effort to subvert the Biden campaign. ONLY the winner gets to make decisions on how to run the campaign and who to include.

Predictable outrage to ensue.
It's not as though he deserves praise for trying to create division, suspicion, distrust and resentment.

What useful purpose does it serve? His "advice" was unsolicited and inappropriate. Biden's campaign and the party had ALREADY given the Sanders campaign every reasonable consideration and accommodation. Negotiations and compromises were made in good faith. Bernie already participated. That part is OVER now. OVER! Biden doesn't need any former rivals "advising" him how to run his campaign.

The campaign is over. Our party has chosen our nominee.

This type of backhanded and back-channel "leaked" critique serves no good purpose. It's just something that creates resentment and distrust. It's pulling scabs off of old wounds and pouring salt in. It's a source of negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Surely people have better and more productive things to do with his time than to take cheap shots at Biden from the sidelines. The GOP is already doing enough of that. Why add to it?

That last sentence nails it perfectly.

He's definitely disgruntled and he's got a chip on his shoulder. He's the Nader-lover who said that there's no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. That's also a mantra often heard from his cult-like devoted fans as well as his favorite politician. In the end, Michael Moore is a grifter. When he's wrong, it's forgotten and never mentioned again. When he right, he's hailed by his cult as being some sort of political genius. Fact is this: He's NO political genius. He's just a cynic who parades around as though he's wiser than the rest of us.
