Fed up with the negativity

I am so completely fed up with the negativity here on this site. There are some here who bring the same negative message to every single thread it seems (and then ironically complain about the dems message).

Do not get me wrong I am not talking about being critical about specific democrats or specific actions. I am talking about the constant “nothing is going to happen”, “we are going to lose x in the midterms”, etc, etc, etc. If we are the hardcore democrats ad the ones that really pull for our party and do all the things then we really shouldn’t be subjected to and reading this stuff here. This place is out gathering point, our sacred ground, our place of information and ideas sharing and I feel as though some are salting the soil here.

I don’t know. I have been around here lurking and reading much longer than my profile indicates and I remember a time when this type of stuff was put down, and called out. If spreading no faith in our party becomes acceptable here then we need to do something about it.

Just how the F$&@ is it possible....

Just how the fuck is it that an excuse for war is that the Jewish Ukrainian president is willingly allowing Nazis to run amok in Ukraine?????

How the fuck do people believe this type of stuff? Abd if they do (and it sure as shit seems like an awful lot do) our species is fuct.

Why is Russia's invasion all the Fault of the U.S.?

I have to say I am getting really tired of hearing that this invasion is our fault. Maybe that is the point. To beat is down. I don’t know. But listening to “progressive” shows on the radio here I hear more and more about how the United States needs to take responsibility for this invasion. Amy Goodman’s show today is non-atop constant Biden and U.S. bashing.

Then on the right you have the expected Biden bashing but also the fawning over Putin and his brilliance.

I am not saying that our foreign policy isn’t without fault but I am fes up with hearing how every bad thing that happens in the world is our fault.

Just got the craziest email- need some help.

I just got this random email from Mark Korin who is a local GOP chair here in MN? Anyways the email came with a spreadsheet that I am not planning to open but apparently it contains some list?

At first I thought it was just some spam but it seems like I may have accidentally been forwarded something. Thoughts?

Email below………….

Subject: SD 31 Data Help Please

Attached you will find the list of 2022 Caucus Attendees that the State Party received from your area.

We need your help to verify this information. Many BPOUs sent us hand written data that we had to transcribe, improperly formatted, or missing some key fields.

Please look it over to make sure that it is complete and correct.

Do Del/Alt’s match the PCRCs that were signed on Caucus night.
Officers elected
Full Precinct name (not SOS code)
And most importantly, addresses!
1) Is the address correct
2) And is that address in the right precinct

NOTE: Please return the data in the same format you received. Any lists submitted with previous cycle data or alternate formats will be discarded.

Please return the cleaned list by 8:00AM Friday February 25th. I understand this is a short window, but we are rushing to get accurate lists to Statewide, Congressional, and Legislative candidates seeking endorsement. You may need to solicit help from your Committee members.

Thank you and please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Andy Aplikowski
Political Director

Santita Jackson once again Democrat bashing

She is on drive time on our progressive radio channel here in Minneapolis. Just about every day she brings on people who want to bash democrats. Today it is the corporatist Democrats.

It is all about how Biden could issue executive orders to secure voting rights and that he is complicit in keeping black people from voting.

What a fucking joke.

Thom Hartmann needs to shove this in Julio's face!

I love Thom’s show but he invites this guest Julio on now and again and the guy is just a blathering idiot that spews a bunch of nonsense. This week he was on blathering about inflation and why Biden is failing on the economy.

Thom PLEASE stop having this guy on. He disrespects you every time and he just tries to yell over you linking incoherent thoughts one after another.

We take a beating for doing or trying to do the right things.

There is a lot of talk about us getting beat because of this and that. For school closures, for CRT (or really just teaching history in general), trying to gove medical coverage to people, trying to lessen peoples educational debt, etc on and on and on….

If that is what is beating us for doing it then so be it. I would rather we lose for doing and trying to do the right things that to not do them in order to stay or gain power. At some point it will be on the people in this country to finally wake up. I am exhausted with Americans who fight for the people who do not have their best interests at heart.
