About Me

Coffee addict. Political progressive.

Should Dems explore criminalizing manufactured scandals meant to sway elections?

The GOP's baseless bullshit against Hunter Biden.

The GOP's baseless swiftboating of John Kerry.

The GOP's baseless Benghazi of Hillary.


The Trump and GOP-led extremely racist Obama birth certificate so-called scandal.

I could go on and on with these bullshit, made-up, fake scandals.

All of those scandals produced nothing. NO indictments. No credible evidence of any wrong-doing or any law-breaking.

The GOP has wasted billions creating fake political scandals and then investigating them, only to end with zero results. No indictments, no evidence of law-breaking.

Pure bullshit meant to sway elections in favor of GOP candidates and assassinate the character of Dem candidates.

It is a pure attempt to sway elections and is a twisted tactic that wanders into the territory of voter tampering.

GOP fake scandals are voter tampering.

I admit, I'm not a legal mind. Would this legislation survive court challenges? Is it worth pursuing?

Fake scandals that produce nothing when it is clear that the outcome is meant to damage a political rival should be viewed as a blatant attempt at voter tampering.

And thus, criminalized with SEVERE penalties.

I'm 49 years old and that's my opinion based on a lifetime of watching the GOP pull this bullshit relentlessly ever since Nixon then Ray-gun, Bush, Mccain, Romney, and now Trump.

Attempting to sway the vote through voter tampering should be a federal high crime.

I will fight for this until the day I fucking die.

Remember, the GOP investigated these so-called scandals down to the bare bones. They've wasted billions of taxpayer dollars and produced nothing in return.

Lock them up.

In less than 3 weeks, we can END the past decade of GOP JACKASSERY.

The shit that President Obama had to put up with since 2010.

The constant baseless GOP-led investigations that produced nothing. Wasted untold amounts of taxpayer money with zero results. Wasted time, energy, money with nothing to show for it while diverting attention and resources away from doing their actual job of running our nation and addressing the real problems confronting us. The GOP has ignored our infrastructure, education, healthcare, roads, power grids, covid-19, the needs of the people.. I could go on all day.

2020 has been a brutal year. It caps a decade that I wish I could forget. As I look back through those dark ages, there was one ray of light.

President Obama. The 2010's would've been unbearable without him(and Joe by his side).

Enter the orange asshole, Trump.

We can end this fucking nightmare in 3 weeks.

We can end the past decade of GOP sewage by draining the sewer made by Trump.

Mitch FUCKING Mcturtle. May he lose or at least, let's make him the senate MINORITY leader.

In 3 weeks, WE can end the past decade of GOP authoritarianism and stone-walling every progressive idea.

I empathize for the year 2020. I feel pity for how history will treat 2020. It's been a brutal year without doubt. The loss of life, Covid-19.

But remember,
We have a chance to salvage 2020 by ending the GOP nightmare by electing Joe, Kamala, and Dems federal, state and locally.

Fellow DU'ers,
Be proud of who you are. Get excited. In 3 weeks we can change this nightmare into a new start. Biden will be like a breath of fresh air.

Get out and vote! Take your friends, family etc. Do early voting or mail-in. I have already sent in my mail-in ballot. All Dems of course.

If we do everything that we can to increase turnout, Joe will win.

Give 2020 a reprieve. Lets close out this painful year with some good news.

Turn-out, vote. With friends and family.

Elect Biden, save 2020.

Notice how NOTHING sticks to Joe, and that fact infuriates the orange lunatic..

Trump tried to call out Joe's mental health and acuity, only to see Biden show his spine vs Trump in their debate.
"Will you shut up, man?" - was epic..

Trump tried to call out Biden's stamina, only to have videos go viral of Don the Con walking hunched over like me when I throw out my back from an age old injury. He looked like a dead man walking.. I question Trump's stamina vs Joe's any day.

Hunter Biden. Is Hunter running for prez? Fuck no. What does he have to do with anything? This topic shows Trump's pathetic desperation. Trump knows he is losing this election and is grasping for any lifeline to boost his sorry ass campaign.

The GOP handbook on character assassination is devoid of the chapter of what to do when nothing sticks. Trump is furious because of that fact.

Poor Don, where is your swiftboat?

Wallow in your narcissistic cesspool, you orange fascist turd.

Joe will ride high to election day victory, when we can start the DE-TRUMPIFICATION of this great nation.

To fellow DU'ers what else has Trump tried to stick to Joe that has fallen flat on its face?

Ask anyone but especially Trump elderly supporters..

What is your financial plan if you live to be 100?

Is Social Security important? Will you be reliant/dependent on SS, especially long into your retirement years when you hit 80, 90+?

Will Social Security be an important part of your retirement income and financial security?

Will you rely on SS to keep a roof over your head?

Again, is Social Security an important lifeline for retirement security?

Donald Trump WILL bankrupt Social Security by 2023.

Ask them..
Are you going to allow Trump to bankrupt and attempt to kill one of human history's most successful social programs that has proven to be absolutely vital to the security of senior citizens?

What is your plan if Trump bankrupts Social Security? When you're 90 and health is starting to fail, will you be forced to go back to work? By the time you're 75 Social Security will be dying under Trump.
The reason I wrote this rant...
I recently asked my Trump loving mother these questions. She is 75. I asked her to open her eyes and research this. She did and got back to me. She sounded deflated at first, on the phone. Mom researched the links that I asked her to check out, including Biden's official website, CBO-congressional budget office etc..

I was shocked by what she said next. "I can't believe that fucking asshole will do that to SS. I'm switching to voting for Biden."

Mom rarely uses foul language. I was shocked. Not at the language but by the fact that I witnessed someone change their politics. Just by having their eyes opened.

Trump is like a flood of poisoned water. He is turning off his supporters every day. Many are on the edge of supporting him. Aging Trump supporters can be turned into Biden voters just by opening their eyes with facts. Swing voters will very likely sway toward Biden if their eyes are opened.

Social Security is the flag to rally under. Seniors are usually the most reliable voting block as far as turnout. SS is important to them.

Call on seniors to vote to protect Social Security by voting for Biden. Trust me, they listen.

Biden has a solid plan to save Social Security.

As an aging, crusty old vet myself,
I will vote for retirement security by voting for Biden and Dems.
(I dropped my mail-in vote into the post office drop slot yesterday.)

Stay quarantined for at least 30 days, ASSHOLE.

It's time for the people of the U.S. to demand Trump go into full quarantine for at least 30 days.

As I've written in numerous threads here on DU, I had covid back in March. It took 3 full weeks to clear my symptoms. I fully quarantined at home for 6 full weeks. 3 full weeks after my symptoms ended. My symptoms ended Apr 9th. I ended my quarantine about May 4th.

Yes, the quarantine was maddening at times but my family called me daily and kept my spirits high. I only opened my front door to grab the grocery bags delivered by my beloved sister and niece.(on edit: I waited until they left to open the door..)

There is no fucking way that Trump can start doing anything public for 30 days. He will likely be infectious until then. More like 6 weeks just to be safe.

As I've stated in other threads, my symptoms were moderate. Had they gotten any worse, I would've required hospitalization. I chatted every few days with my physician. She was the best. She closely monitored the situation and her guidance was solid gold.

My mother is a recently retired registered nurse. She was also solid gold. I was very lucky to have her call me daily to check up on me and give advice. Due to mom's professional, iron-like constitution, she never shed a tear during our daily chats, even on the worst days when I had difficulty with speaking, I simply couldn't get the air out of my lungs. Mom never teared up. Although, I'm guessing she broke down after getting off the phone with me.. I could talk all day about the importance of family through trying times like that.

My symptoms..

Lung pain

Shortness of breath

Chills and a low grade fever

Restricted breathing

It felt like a boa constrictor wrapped around my ribcage, constricting.

Yes, covid is serious, obviously. It kills with reckless abandon. It scars the lungs of many, often permanently, like me.

The point of all of this...

Trump will be infectious for weeks. We need to call on the orange asshole to fully quarantine for several weeks.

Take it from someone who's had their eyes opened by this super-infectious disease. Me.

Does Mary deserve a reprieve? Her legacy has likely suffered enough.

Is it time for a new standard-bearer to carry on the torch of death?

If so, I suggest..

Typhoid Donald.

May that echo in eternity. His true legacy.

on edit..

I'm begging the Biden campaign to demand the truth from Infectedcheeto about the timeline of his..

first POZ test for covid-19.

Did Trump test positive before the debate? Did he actually know that he was infected and went on with the debate anyway?

How callous and uncaring can he be, if the above is true? Trump does something every fucking day that proves he is one of the most despicable human beings ever born.

If true, the truth will be devastating to the Trump campaign. Rightly so.

Joe is being classy in these weird times. Trump doesn't deserve to be treated with ANY class at all.

He is nothing but a treasonous traitor. He is a fascist asshole and a total turd of a human being.

To team Joe, please demand the truth from Trump. The truth could propel Joe to a landslide victory in November.

Speaking from my own covid-19 illness in March..

I showed symptoms for 3 full weeks. I fully quarantined for 6 weeks.

It took 3 full weeks to clear my symptoms.

My symptoms..

Restricted breathing. Difficulty drawing in a full breath.

Dry cough.

Body chills.

My beloved sister and niece delivered groceries to my doorstep for a month to my doorstep through a tearfilled window for a month+.

My point..

Trump, the SUPERINFECTOR will remain contagious for a full 30 days beyond his diagnosis, is already implying he will once again hit the campaign trail ready to campaign..

once again he will spread covid to more and more people, with out giving a shit.

Orange super-spreader will callously, carelessly spread this virus in careless fashion.

Trump is a patient-zero-type super spreader.

What else needs to be said?

Biden's plan to save Social Security is progress in action.

Biden just put out an ad that I watched yesterday during a meaningless college football game about his plan to save SS from the orange bag of shit. I'll touch on this ad at the end of this thread, were I need DU's help with a web/youtube search..

Biden's plan..

1. Lifting the infamous $115,000 income cap on the FICA tax. If you earn $115k(approx) you stop paying FICA. That 115k number might be outdated. I knew that # from years ago, anyone give an updated number of the 2020 rate?


Trump will bankrupt SS by 2023.

2. Biden will increase SS benefits for the most vulnerable/aged seniors. Those on SS for 20+ years will see a benefit increase due to increased need. It ain't easy getting old. I'm 49 and already feeling it.

Biden's plan also calls for increasing the smallest SS payments to keep people out of poverty, for people that had lower earnings in their working days.

3. Biden plan will also shore up Medicare. Vital to seniors. A direct lifeline to them.

Those 3 points might be an par with the most progressive ideas that I've heard in my 49 year old lifetime, and I've followed politics closely since I was about 8 years old. I'm a nerdy poll watcher. I eat this stuff up like a vacuum cleaner since I was a kid.

Joe is the real deal.

I admit, I'm a former Bernie dude but Joe has highly impressed me. Like my screenname says, I'm all in 4 Joe/Kamala.

Now, on to the "help" part I talked about earlier in this rant..

Biden put out this new ad very recently. I'd seen his pro-SS ad from about a month ago but this new ad played on that older ad even further.

It is a fucking home run and Biden needs to hammer this one home until 11/3.

The difference between this new SS ad and the older one is Biden lays out details of how he will save SS.

The keys to this new ad..

Biden will increase FICA on the wealthiest US citizens.

Biden will ad up to $1,300 a month to aging seniors who've been on SS for 20+ years.

Biden will increase the monthly benefits to the recipients of the smallest SS payments to move them above the poverty line.

Can anyone who is a tad more internet/search savvy find that ad and post it in the comments? I'll be eternally thankful and will make a new thread to give Joe's ad more love and will thank you in that new post.

To Joe, run that ad until winning day, 11/3.

Biden's SS plan is among the most progressive plans I've seen from a Dem in my 49 year old existence.

And I'm a curmudgeony old yellow dog.

Joe, I'm impressed.

I talk to my elderly neighbors and have convinced them to change to supporting Joe/Kamala because of SS.

Please DU, help me find this ad and post it in the comments.

To Joe and Kamala: Protect yourselves from these stupid fucking BS debates by not participating.

Debates are covid hotspots.

I've always felt that debates are FREE platforms for Rethugs to lie there asses off. Many voters tune in to watch debates and it's the same old shit. Rethugs advancing their bullshit because they've been given a FREE platform to barf out their lies.

Ray-gun, Nixon made that tactic famous. The Bushes and Trump have mastered it.

Pence will regurgitate it.

All while exposing our beloved candidates, Joe and Kamala to covid.

Debates have never helped Dems since Nixon because of the lies told be Rethug candidates.

Fuck the covid spreading debates. Skip them.

Keep Joe and Kamala safe and healthy.

Don't give a televised platform to Rethugs to spread their lies.
