The Purge - Karen needs a haircut

Posted by HelpImSurrounded | Tue Jun 30, 2020, 01:22 AM (0 replies)

I just read the most demoralizing comment from a friend...

"I don't see Warren or her supporters putting forth that improving the lives of people worse off than them is the (or even a) reason to vote for her."

I thought this was so fundamental to everything she's doing that it didn't need to be said.


When she talks about HEALTH CARE she's talking about making things better for people worse off than me.

When she talks about WEATH AND INCOME INEQUALITY she's talking about making things better. for people worse than me.

When she talks about CANCELLING STUDENT DEBT she's talking about making things better for people worse off than me.

When she talks about CLIMATE CHANGE she's talking about making things better for people worse off than me.

When she talks about GOVERNMENT AND WALL STREET corruption, she's talking about making things better for people worse of than me.

When she talks about ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE, IMMIGRATION reform, CRIMINAL JUSTICE reform and RECOGNIZING WHITE SUPREMACY AS A TERRORIST THREAT she's absolutely talking about making things better for people worse off than me.

I've had my struggles. I've watched others struggle. I've watched some lose altogether.

In all honesty, I don't need her help. I just happen to believe in making the world a better, more just place.

My president can do math

I just heard Joe on MSNBC describing instant runoff voting while explaining the Nevada caucuses and then asked "How do you calculate that?"

I need my president to be able to do math.

What happened to Mr. Electability? Did he catch a case of Joementum?

What happened?

All I've heard for more than a year was how "electable" a certain candidate is and how important it is that we nominate him because he's so electable...

He's been polling in first place since day one and only briefly lost that position until last Monday when...

He came in FOURTH.

Electability. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

"Bankrupt Trump"

At the veteran's day ceremony Trump was greeted with chants of 'Lock Him Up' and 'Impeach and Remove'.

If you really want to hurt Trump's feelings we need to be chanting "Bankrupt Trump!"

List of republicans voicing support for impeachment

Is there such a list?

I realize most are not in congress or senate but the circle seems to be closing and pressure rising.

The polls are clear... we have no clue what is happening except for one thing...


When looking at the polls in this article, the differences are so great it's clear we don't have a clue what's happening except that old people prefer Biden.

Morning Consult has consistently run Biden-biased so it's no surprise that Fox does too. It's that age old problem - old people have land lines and answer them, anyone under 60(?) knows better than to answer a phone number they don't recognize.

YouGov has an interesting model if they can filter out noise. We will see ....

Tracking Trump's Twitter timeline

Has anybody charted the likes and shares of trump's tweets over time.

I'm wondering if it would reveal a trend of vanishing support?

(I apologize for abuse of alliteration. It was unavoidable.)

Can we fix the Texas constitution?

The TX constitution is a design failure. We shouldn't be having constitutional amendments for bond issues and every other minor issue.

Can we fix it so these simply become voter propositions but not amendments?
