Amazing -- a must watch-- these major Trump truth tellers

GOTV-- black voters in Georgia

Long but good piece:

"Although Donald Trump won Georgia by just 211,000 votes in 2016, some 900,000 eligible black people stayed home, a majority of them Atlanta residents. They were unconvinced that voting for the Democratic candidate would mean getting a president who represented them."

"If Democrats invest in an enormous marketing and organizing campaign that persuades black people and young people to participate in our democracy, we will win. That campaign should answer uncomfortable questions about what happened in Georgia in 2018 and explain how this year will be different. Through millions of personal conversations, organizers can connect the dots between who makes decisions that puts their lives at risk and who can make things better. Thatís how we can show young people grieving the killing of Ahmaud Arbery in South Georgia that voting is a way to create real change by electing new sheriffs and prosecutors.

Campaigns never balk at investing significant resources to court moderate white men. But when all the data is laid out about black people, why does the political industry hesitate? Black people have long been the most loyal supporters of the Democratic Party ó indeed, no other major voting bloc is as loyal to a political party as black people.

Every 10 new black voters nets eight Democratic votes, but the party gets only two net votes for every 10 new white, college-educated female voters. Democrats have to stop treating black people as deserving of only mailers after Labor Day and instead see them as the core of the multiracial coalition."

The Coronavirus has revealed many gaps in our knowledge of viral pathogenesis.

For example, why are the worst assholes on the planet so resistant to getting infected despite being repeatedly exposed to it?

Sure, you think Trump is bad, but do you know how bad he really is?

The interview with Noel Casler in this podcast is quite informative. It's long but well worth it. Rick Wilson is in there for the first 30 mins or so.

Basically Trump is a supremely disgusting person, both physically and mentally, a total fraud and we have to do everything we can to remove him.

It's so unreal (but perhaps it is fitting) that the whole GOP has prostituted themselves to this truly loathsome specimen of humanity.

Under Trump, we are a failed and pitiful state.

"Only a handful of nations on Earth have arguably done a worse job of handling the coronavirus pandemic than the United States. What has happened to us? How did we become so dysfunctional? When did we become so incompetent?

The shocking and deadly failures by President Trump and his administration have been well documented ó we didnít isolate, we didnít test, we didnít contact trace, we waited too long to lock down. But Trumpís gross unfitness is only part of the problem. The phrase ďAmerican exceptionalismĒ has always meant different things to different people ó that this nation should be admired, or perhaps that it should be feared. Not until now, at least in my lifetime, has it suggested that the United States should be pitied."
