  1. Amazon is destroying retail stores. I am not sure that's where people are getting most of their clothing, but brick and mortar is dying. Even lots of malls in the U.S. are becoming empty shells.
  2. I love how everyone thinks Bernie would've won against Trump. It's certainly possible. However, he couldn't beat Hillary. And then people say, "But the DNC sabotaged him!" Do you honestly think the GOP would've been fair (or their Russian bots)? If you can't beat the Clintons, you probably can't beat the GOP. Look at Obama, he knew how to do both. Bernie is a poor strategist. He barely spent money in the southern states during the primary which allowed Clinton to rack up delegates. He couldn't even win one of the most liberal states in the country - California - which voted close to dead last in the primary calendar. He had plenty of time to make his case, he failed. I'd also add that Bernie faced very little negative advertising during the primary (since Hillary was trying not to offend his supporters), the GOP would not have been so kind. Anyway, I hope he's learned from his mistakes in the 2016 primary. I guess we'll see. I am voting for whomever the Democrats nominate. Even if it's a ketchup bottle.
  3. I am not attacking you, but this is a straight-up myth. Hillary got almost 66 million votes in 2016. The only candidate in history to get more American votes was Barack Obama (both in 2008 and 2012). She received more votes in that election than Bill Clinton did for either of his Presidential runs, or George W. Bush. Hillary's flaw, and it IS a real one, was that she spread her operation too thin trying to sweep Georgia and Arizona. She should've focused on the Blue Wall state of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. So can we stop saying she didn't inspire people? A lot of women were inspired, and crushed the day after the election. Let's not discount her completely.
  4. Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina. Go figure.
  5. Sweets! Where you at? Miss you!! 😘

      Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!! Grateful for you!!

  6. No. The House can impeach but the Senate must convict to remove a President from office. It's what happened to Bill Clinton - impeached by the House, acquitted by the Senate. He remained in office. The Senate GOP will probably never convict Trump, even if the Dems impeach in the House. We have a complicit GOP in full effect here. Nazi Germany Lite, if you will.
  7. The entire far right is going to eat itself eventually, but they are going to do a lot of damage to this country in the process. Dems are angry because (naturally) they (or I should say WE) are overly optimistic. I was certain Hillary would win - beyond any doubt. Look what happens. We're always the dreamers. However, you are correct. We won the House which at least stops these insane GOP members from passing horrible legislation for a hot minute. Let the litigation fly! Don Jr. hearings from now until 2020! In some ways, Beto losing might be a good thing. I want that sombitch to run for President. He's got the magic touch! Pelosi will likely be voted Speaker. It's not 100% certain, obviously, and I think she will step down eventually to let someone else lead, but you cannot deny that she is effective. She gets things done, and she can do politics like no one else. That said, I hope she has a protege waiting in the wings because it's almost time for her to exit stage left. I only defend her because it doesn't matter who the Democrats make Speaker, the GOP is going to drag them through the mud and make them the boogeyman (or woman). They do it to every high profile Democrat (Obama is the only one that maintained some connection to people because he came across so chill and kind). Clinton, Harris, Pelosi, Warren - they're all just "ratchet bitches" to the GOP party. You're never going to find a Democratic woman the GOP even remotely likes. I wish one of them would clean their clock,
  8. His base is really only about 30-35% of people, but unfortunately, they vote reliably. I was hoping the same thing too (that he'd be rejected) but I think this is the new norm...you can win being a racist, sexist piece of shit because there are plenty of them in our country. And most of the middle and left "play nice" for bipartisanship points. Gloves off, bitches. These people want to bury you and your kids. Dumb cunts need to wake the fuck up.
  9. This is a victory with a lampshade on it. Recapturing the House is great as we can now investigate this sleazy administration, but we lost ground in the Senate (which matters a lot for 2020 as it means Democrats need to win even more seats). I am starting the think the Supreme Court will be lost for the rest of my lifetime. If Democrats don't take the Senate and Presidency in 2020, that Court is going to be all right-wing nutjobs.
  10. Years of brainwashing by conservative media. I know it's a tired defense, but I know so many family members glued to Fox & Friends. It's like Jonestown 2018 over here. And I honestly don't feel bad about the Nazi Germany comparisons anymore. Surely, we are not putting people in ovens, but the vitriol in this nation is only get worse by the day.
  11. Unless the Democrats win the House or Senate (or both) in November, we're fucked. For a long long time. Hell, we might be fucked for a long time as it is.
  12. Yeah, Kennedy leaving won't change much by way of how the SCOTUS sides with big business, but abortion is over as a nationwide practice: https://realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/06/27/cnn_jeffrey_toobin_on_kennedy_retirement_in_18_months_abortion_will_be_illegal_in_20_states.html Gay marriage could be overturned as well, but I think the chances are less likely than the abortion issue. Also, that baker case on serving a gay couple - well, the new court will likely rule outright that you can discriminate against gays based on religion. That is totally coming unless a miracle happens or John Roberts pulls a Souter. Yep, liberal-minded folk are pretty fucked. Especially if they live in a red (or even swing) state.
  13. We've rotted from the inside out. Not because of gay marriage or Medicaid spending, but because of Der Stürmer-like media such as FOX News and the shit pile of right wing talk radio. Stirring citizens up, all the while they don't know that their ever-worsening lives are because those same outlets are paid for by the ultra wealthy neocons who immediately call for tax cuts and then bankrupt education and healthcare. This is going to get worse before it gets better. The right has lost its mind, and it can no longer control the hate wagon. It's happening in my own family. I've disowned half of them already.
  14. A credit score isn't all that different and having a good one affords you benefits that others do not have. Oh yes, technology that was supposed to level the playing field is now being used to develop a caste system.
  15. Hmmmm...I tried watching her response and was so annoyed within minutes, I had to stop. On the one hand, she's obviously a very naive young woman. The older I get, the harder it is for me to completely blame these kids who grew up in such a shitty age of technological transition - however - this is life, babe. School of hard knocks. You live and you learn. You can't expect fame (even in this global piss pot called social media) to be roses all the time. Maybe you need a little bloody nose to feel some humility. Obviously, that isn't the lesson she took from this and thus her life will continue to be a major disappointment to her. And the fact that she starts this video with "I never, ever, feed into drama..." is laughable. Bitch, you don't even know who you are. This has to be one of the most overly dramatic reactions I've ever seen. If she was talking about Syrian refugees dying, it would warrant this level of emotion and disgusted. Your email got released and trolled. You're still sitting in your comfy bedroom with electricity and soft pink clothing. Give it a rest, you idiot.
