We need a couple dozen Lincoln Project type groups fighting back. It's time for Dems to ignore the

rules and norms like republicans have done and start go after the 1/6 actors and accomplices and drag them out of their holes and put them in jail. Get a friendly judge to jack up or deny bail. F the rules. Arrest Trump tomorrow on the Stormy Daniels illegal payoff. Would republicans have arrested Biden or Obama if they were unindicted co-conspirators? Go after Fox, The Federalist Society, Chamber of Congress, The NRA, the Proud Boys and charge them under RICO. Bend or break the rules if they must because because if we donít start using our power while we have it to put the fear of God in these cowards we will lose our democracy. Look at the way the wealthy Republican donor Ken Lonngome (sp?) hired a private detective to follow former Gov. Spitzer and brought him down. Because if we know anything itís that good guys finish last. Just look at SCOTUS. Letís organize huge protests outside of Fox News and their hosts home. I will protest. Screw the rules just do something. Arrest people. Execute executive orders fining Fox and Newsmax for lying, who cares if itís legal or constitutional just do something. Load up the Build Back Better bills with huge pork for WV and Az and announce it and take it to the people of those states to put pressure on Manchin and Sinema. Or close federal facilities and stop federal projects in those states. Delay paying federal benefits to WV and Az who cares if it is legal. Biden instructs the treasury secretary to stop social security payments to people of those states. Republicans would do this and way more. Hold up federal contracts and payments to corporations who contribute to republicans. Let them go to court and if we lose we will appeal. We need to start using Republican tactics to save our democracy. Iím so tired of getting walked all over by republicans. Make Kentucky citizens feel the pain of McConnellís actions. Starve them out. Lay siege to these backward states. Dems will never win them. Be the blood sucking pagans that they accuse us of being. Like Russia did when they retreated when the Germans attacked in WWII burn it all down. Letís see how long it will take for the republicans in those states to move against leaders like McConnell. If itís a death cult they want then letís help give them what they want. Isolate and deprive these states of everything federal and let them take it to court where we can obstruct just like they do. They want chaos letís give it to them. Let them know that there is a price to pay for following stupid people with stupid ideas. If they go low we go lower and suck them under. Quarantine Covid states and shut down the airports and interstate travel into and out of those states. Turn their already feeble economies into dust. Letís just take the fight to them using whatever tools we have because we might not have those tools after 2022. Letís stop playing fair and see how they like it.

Put Zuckerberg in jail. Regulate social media. All speech is NOT protected speech. There must be

consequences for public officials flat out lying. The media must also be held accountable for spreading lies. Thorny issues indeed that need to be addressed by people far smarter than me. It used to be that broadcast licenses to transmit information and entertainment over the airways were held to a standard. Now we must regulate all broadcast media, cable, and the internet, and hold them to some minimum standard of decency and truth. Fox News and Facebook should not be permitted to use their power of persuasion to destabilize our government. Lawmakers should be held accountable for spreading blatantly false and dangerous lies. You do not have the freedom to take down our government claiming you are exercising your 1st amendment right. And we must deal with the illegitimate SCOTUS that will sit by and rubber stamp the RW theocratic march towards authoritarianism with their dangerous interpretation of the Constitution as a static document. To be sure, our founding fathers are rolling in the graves over the condition of our country.

Tough shit Donnie, it's all coming out. How about those super secret servers with your calls to

Putin and other world leaders. Canít wait until that stuff is released. Literally Trump is the biggest traitor in American History. Unlike Benedict Arnold who was one of our beat generals who felt under appreciated and when he didnít turn the British viewed him as a traitor as well. Benedict Donald did nothing for our country and once it all comes out he should rot in prison. Trump, if he could have would have been a leader like Idi Amin storing the heads of his enemies in his freezer. Other evil leaders at least had evil motives and evil ideologies. Trump is just an evil bastard with no redeeming qualities.

I tell my righty friends I'm a lib and I don't drink kids blood or want to take away their stuff etc

I confront them and say you have known me for X number of years and do I look or sound like a communist? Then I hit them wit some truths that they find hard to deny by showing how intimately intertwined with government and how they really could not live without all the government intervention in their life. Some examples include food safety, water, air safety, sanitation, snow plowing, and government disaster response. Schools, police protection, a court system to enforce contracts and individual rights from the right to speak to property rights the list is exhaustive. Next time you get in an conversation with your rw creepy uncle hit them with these truths then tell them if they want to live really free without government intervention then put up or shut up and move to Somalia and see how long they last. Tom Hartmann taught me a lot about our relationship to our government and just how much we need and depend on government.

He finally expressed regret but too late for him. Reminds mw Steve Jobs after being diagnosed

with pancreatic cancer, the survivable kind, and he refused traditional treatment until it was too late. In Isaacsonís biography Jobs did express regret for not listening to the docs and friends who pleaded with him to ditch the holistic, mind over matter bullshit that he thought he could cure himself without traditional medicine. I donít know why. I just thought of that. This radio host, by all accounts, spread lies and disinformation and now is suffering the same fate as Jobs. While I feel sad for Jobs because he really did change the world and could jave done so much more had he lived, Valentine is getting what he deserves.

To the traitors TFG did us a great service by leaving his thriving business to become president. He

Is arguably the biggest failure as a businessman in American history. Listen to what real NY real estate tycoons think of Trump. He pays full price for real estate, the Plaza, then sells it back at a discount price and loses potential millions by making the wrong moves. But he has all the idiots believing otherwise. Business failures and bankruptcies be damned. Everything he touches turns to shit. Casinos, airlines, less well is how he ruined the USFL, boat racing, boxing etc. The list of failures is endless. He was only successful at creating a cult of millions of ignorant, racists, American democracy hating traitors.

Rat F'ers Fox and rw media. Murderous bastards.

What a wonderful story. At 59yo with a wife I met in high school and 4 kids later It's scary to

look back and see how fast time passes. Itís also worrisome that the country we confidently had children in might not be the same country we experienced. I never thought I would worry for my kids futures concerning climate change, income inequality, healthcare, and democracy itself. We just assumed our kids would enjoy the same benefits we had. But I worry about my kids futures even though they are adults one being an orthopedic surgeon, a medical rep, a lawyer, and a nurse. None are married but I would caution all of them that when they do marry having 4 kids may not be a wise decision. Knowing what I know now, if I had to do it over I wouldnít have 4 kids. The country changed significantly since I started having kids durig the 90ís and not for the better. I hope as a country we can somehow regain the country I grew up in and felt good enough about to confidently bring 4 kids into the world. The next 3 years maybe the most critical in my lifetime. Everything is at stake.

I'm watching The Handmaid's Tale and show about a totalitarian in what used to be the USA but now

rules by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. I watched the first season in 2017 and was so disturbed I stopped watching. I mentioned to my wife that in one scene the main characterís wife in the run up to the takeover of society by the religious nuts had to have her husband consent in writing to get her monthly birth control. My wife scoffed at me when I said that I wouldnít see a law like that enacted in many Republican run states. After running out of thing to watch during the pandemic I resumed watching The Handmaidís Tale and in a scene one of the Commanders asked one of the Handmaidís if she knew what the penalty for taking Burt control is and she replies ďyes, death by ravaging dogsĒ. This show is a stark warning of what can easily happen here if the Republican Taliban is not confronted now while we still have a chance to stop them.
