Heartbreaking song for Obama

Obama's point of view of Trump interpreted and written by Sara Barailles and sung by Leslie Odum Jr. who played Aaron Burr in Hamilton. We never think what Obama is going thru in this garbage filled election. You will cry.

VOTE early

There are two kinds of people who aren’t voting early.

1) Your state doesn’t allow it.

2) You have romantic notions of voting early.

The first, no one can do anything about now. Lobby your lawmakers to implement early voting for the next cycle. But the second? Know this—the single best thing you can do to combat ballot-box vote suppression is to bank that vote early. And trust me, conservatives are doing what they can to create havoc at the ballot box, from Donald Trump, to the Republican Party, to crazy Oathkeepers, to other crazy deplorables.

In addition, voting early frees up Democratic GOTV efforts to focus on truly low-performing voters (of which you are not one). So even if you live in a precinct with plenty of voting machines and low wait times because everyone around you is white, give our volunteers a break by allowing them to focus on voters that really do need help voting.

And on top of that, it demoralizes Republicans: “How bad has early voting been for GOP in NV? @nv03[Republican] contender @DannyTarkanian tells GOP women's group last night “we're all going down.”

But aside from that, nothing enables GOP suppression efforts more than ballot-box voting. They can limit the number of polling locations and ballot boxes in Democratic-heavy precincts, willfully creating hours-long lines that force too many people away. Suburban precincts don’t have that problem. But our core ones do. And all it takes is a little extra shenanigans—like “poll watchers” “challenging” voters—to slow things down even more, further suppressing our vote. Meanwhile, since you haven’t voted, as you sit in that extra-long line, our GOTV volunteers are chasing you around instead of supporting someone who actually needs help.

If you shun early voting because of the romance of the moment, take a moment to read this great diary: “And I Thought Early Voting Wouldn't Feel As Special...” Voting is special, no matter how or when or why you do it. And what’s even more special is when other people get to vote because of your decision to help out our GOTV efforts, and minimize the impact of ballot-box voter suppression efforts.

Seriously, if you can, vote early.

21 year old kid just told me he thinks HRC will win.He was almost crying.

My young Christian neighbor is a bright kid, but politically braindead. Cruz guy, then quickly shifted to Cheeto. Came up to me Sunday and signed "I think Hillary will win.... can you tell me if she will let Syrian refugees into our country?" I said "That's what your party gets for picking a dud of a candidate. And if you think fertilized eggs are people but refugee kids aren't, you're going to have to stop pretending your concerns are religious."

Immigrants Buses and Eggs

Hillary doesn't want to put immigrants on buses, where they'll just be egged on by Billy Bush.

CHICAGO 10*******

is the movie that was Opening Night Selection 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Trippy, audacious and exhilarating. No ordinary documentary. It is wildly original using archival footage and animation style. The best movie I have ever seen and I don't like animation. Uses trial transcript speeches verbatim. Abbie is brilliant. The love of me life is words, and this film has them.

Channeling yesterday's voices for peace in a manner that speaks peace for today. RIP Tom and Abbie.
