    Yeah Manchin was never going with them. It would still be good to not have Mitch be majority leader. I think there's a couple other dems for which that would be a hard sell. I object to the idea of it being "packing" the courts. That's what the GOP has been doing for the past four years.

    Pfizer says their vaccine is showing 90% efficiency and could be made available before the end of the year.

    Wrong. It has outlived its purpose. If you want everyone's vote to count as equal, then 1 person = 1 vote. Pretty simple. Ranked choice voting would be ideal, but anything is better than the Electoral College.

    Get rid of the Electoral College.

    Miscellaneous thoughts, in no particular order: Assuming current results hold, Biden held all Clinton states from 2016 and flipped all three blue-wall states, Nebraska's 2nd C.D., Arizona, and Georgia (!). That's a very solid victory. The polls were about four points off yet again. Is Trump just poll-proof? Did some Biden supporters not get out to vote because of Covid or other reasons? I look forward to statistical analysis on this in the coming months. Democrats definitely underperformed in Congress. The biggest question moving forward for them is why and how to fix it. Voters across the country may have been tired of Trump, but they're not ready to embrace liberalism just yet. What happens to the Republican Party now? Do they embrace Trumpism or resort to a more dignified conservatism a la McCain/Romney? Trump isn't going away. His Tweets will hold political power, for better or worse. And no, Trump running in 2024 is not out of the question. #PrayForPhil

    I agree with that 100%. The Dem party are morons. I hope Biden wins, but if he doesn't, yeah, let it all burn. Sick of this country. How can 40% of us be so fucking stupid as to support that conman?

    No, I was genuinely just pointing out the irony in defending him the same exact way. I’ve spent the last 10 posts making the comparisons between the two and how they aren’t that different both personally or legislatively . So when you came in with Trumper rhetoric , I felt it fell too perfectly in place not to say something . I am not against defending either candidate in that way. Too often people try to be funny or be sarcastic or whatever and they go get canceled for it lol. I’m not about that life. And at this point ... Biden or Trump I just hope it’s a blowout . I really don’t want to deal with all the legal challenges from either side. It’s going to be such a headache . A close race either way probably means rioting, looting, violence, etc .

    Ironically, you know you just sound like a Trumpster right? Anytime Trump says something really stupid or awful, they just rush to his defense and say he was "joking" or "taken out of context". Like, ehhhh. Lol. Do as I say, not as I do though -- right?

    That just gives them an excuse to bring in the military and use all their tools of surveillance to arrest everyone. The real solution would be just to stop going to work and march on Capitol Hill. We’ve seen we can bring this country to it’s knees simply by not going to work. in Japan bus drivers wanted a raise so they let everyone ride for free and it only took a day of that for them to get what they want. All we need is solidarity. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/cities/2018/may/11/no-ticket-to-ride-japanese-bus-drivers-strike-by-giving-free-rides-okayama

    What's really irritating to me is the knowledge that our death and infection totals aren't accurate due to incentives. We don't have any way of knowing the real scope of this pandemic within the US. It's nothing short of insanity to allow such things. We needed to know the real numbers, period. We should all be furious about that.

    "Hundreds of thousands of avoidable deaths." That's not just a stretch--that's a tear. Good lord.

    Another lie from Trump and his cronies. He didn't forget he was running for President. It was a grammatical mistake. He was listing off the things he'd run for. He said Senator, then Vice President, and then President. Here is the full clip of that part: https://www.bbc.com/news/av/election-us-2020-54531569 And yeah he forgot Romney's name. He's old. I wish he wasn't. But he's far better than the traitor in the WH. Why would we give another trillion dollars to big corporations and just $1200 again to the American people, with no help for a postal service about to be deluged? It wouldn't help people in the long run at all. Now she absolutely should do what Trump said later, which is send him a bill just for the $1200 to the people and thats it. Absolutely do that. She's a moron for not taking that offer. Either he's serious, in which case the people win, or he's not and she calls him on it.

    Holding the American people hostage because you don't get every single thing you wan't is not an excuse. I am not saying the Mnuchin 1.8T is perfect, I am not saying it's a magic wand. But people NEED THAT RELIEF. Why give a check to the American people without money for the post office? Fuck youuuuuu. lmao. If this doesn't get done, which it likely won't... Trump isn't gonna do shit during lame duck because he's a loser and going to be busy whining and crying... People aren't getting relief until FEBRUARY maybe. Fuck that evil witch. She's a disgusting pig. Also, she was on CNN today and went after Wolf Blitzer for asking her the tough question. She was calling him a GOP stooge lmao. What. A. Cunt.

    Also, the nations biggest fears have mostly come true... at least early on. Biden's national security team has been appointed and is indeed led by some of the country's most dangerous war criminals in our history. People like Blinken and Michele Flournoy have been involved in every conflict the US has jumped into since around Clinton's administration. As well as been huge cogs in legislation that argue America must be able to constantly fight countless endless wars. It's naive to think they will all of a sudden change, but we can only hope. Hindsight is 20/20, but Trump may just have been better.
