  1. I think there's two big issues driving people over the edge right now: High prices for just about everything and this supply chain disaster. These two issues are hitting EVERYONE in just about every way possible. And if Dems were out there acting like they gave a shit about it instead of squabbling with each other over how to spend trillions of tax payers dollars, they may have had a fighting chance. If they can't get these two things under control - or PRETEND like they're trying too - then they're in for an absolute bloodbath next year in the mid terms and might as well just roll the red carpet back out for Trump in '24. I agree with @Kurt420, it's all so frustrating that I may just sit this out and wait for the Dems to put forth a true progressive who can get things done.
  2. They're obviously trolling by putting the word TRUTH in anything Don or his minions cobble together.
  3. It does feel like we've jumped from the frying pan into the fire with Biden in terms of real world issues. Obviously not all are of his doing and most have been festering for years, but none of this bodes well for the midterms or 2024. This country has no attention span, so if things really start to implode, just enough people may start to feel nostalgic for Trump to get him into the White House again.
  4. So absurd. It's like McDonalds saying they're getting rid of meat on their burgers.
  5. This is such a disaster on every level. And I'm sorry, I voted for Biden, but he seems like a deer in headlights over all of this. But I can't stomach that Trump is running his mouth as if his hands are clean from all this bloodshed. He put the wheels in motion for this catastrophe. What VERY little (and I mean VERY LITTLE) trust or hope I had in our government, military, the Pentagon, CIA, FBI is completely gone. This is a humanitarian crisis and botched job as big or bigger than the Iraq war, the response to Covid, and the financial collapse of 2008. So many people should not only lose their jobs, but put on trial and locked away. As they should've been with those prior disasters as well. But our Congress will just give us a dog and pony show, no one will face any consequences, and this will continue to happen time and time again. We ae such a broken, sad, and lost country. And our decline is accelerating.
  6. It's rich listening to Republicans criticize this mess when they were the biggest cheerleaders of nation building and planting democracies wherever they saw fit. It was never about implementing democracy anywhere. It was always about money, greed, and power. Now all the chickens are coming home to roost over in Afghanistan and they're clutching their pearls. It's disgraceful. 20 years, countless lives lost trillions of dollars spent. And absolutely nothing over this is better off than it was in 2001. An epic tragedy.
  7. She's part of the vermin that crawled out of Pandora's Box when the GOP sold itself to Trump in 2016. This is just the beginning of Trumpism sadly. I think you'll start to see more and more of these lunatics in state and local governments across the U.S. Which is pretty horrifying.
  8. Crave. This song has settled into my M Top 20. So vulnerable. So achingly melancholy. And one of the best bridges she's done in the last 10 years or so. Just a gorgeous song.
  9. I’ve been turning to this album lately in this time of complete and total insanity and uncertainty. It’s been a form of comfort, an album that’s been helping me channel my anger, grief, confusion, and overall mood from day to day. I guess you could say it finally ‘clicked’ with me. Songs like Dark Ballet, Future, Killers Who Are Partying, Come Alive, I Don’t Search I Find, Looking For Mercy, and I Rise have completely new meanings to me during this pandemic. Even Medellin. Which has a form of escapism in it that takes me away from all of this for nearly 5 glorious minutes. And Crave, which I loved upon first listen, made me teary eyed last night. Just thinking how this will be the first Easter ever I won’t be around my family and the sheer melancholic way she sings that song was just too much (after a few glasses of wine too of course). I didn’t think I could love this song anymore than I already do. This album may never rise into my top 5 faves from Madonna, but right now, it’s the album I need and in classic Madonna fashion, it’s an album that will continue to be relevant, powerful, and progressive decades from now.
  10. Well, Biden may limp across the finish line thanks to the disastrous, callous, and outright criminal response from the Trump Administration over the coronavirus.
  11. REALLY?! Huh. Different strokes for different folks. I find her to be kind of insufferable and pretty robotic. I think her 'aw shucks' persona would grate on peoples nerves pretty quickly. Personally, I think Stacey Abrams would ELECTRIFY the groups of people Biden doesn't. She's young, she's black, she's progressive, she likable. She's got an Oprah like quality to her. I do understand that she doesn't have much experience, but I mean, after Trump, what the fuck does that mean anymore anyway? It's amusing to see republicans question Biden's mental fitness because he flubs his words. I think that attack like will go NO WHERE with independent voters who have watched Trump shit himself every single time he speaks. The guy can't even form full sentences or spell words correctly on Twitter.
  12. Well Biden blew Bernie away in my home state of Michigan last night. Like total blowout. He won every single fucking county in the state. Bernie came from behind in 2016 to beat Hillary here when polls had him down over 20 points and it basically resurrected his entire campaign. He even won my county, Kalamazoo, along with Washtenaw and Ingham, home to Michigan State and University of Michigan. And Kalamazoo is home to Western Michigan University. All three counties went hard for him in 2016. I was shocked to see him lose in Ann Arbor especially. Turnout was up and Biden did extremely well across the board in every demographic. I'm really surprised to see him doing this well in so many states. I guess there really is a desire to have someone boring, old, white, and vanilla. After nearly four years of the shit show Trump has put on will do that to a country's psyche I suppose. So it's a done deal. Biden it is.
  13. I do think that when Obama burst onto the scene, that kind of really spoiled an entire generation and swath of the electorate. I remember that election as clear as day. You TRULY felt like he was something special and he TRULY did make you FEEL something. He inspired hope, passion, and made you believe that he was going to usher in a sweeping change to this country on all sorts of levels. I'm not ashamed to admit that I did cry on election night in 2008. The fact that this country elected a man named Barack Hussein Obama was earth shattering. Then reality set in. But ever since Obama, Democrats have been OBSESSED with electing the first in everything and have been trying to shove it all down our throats. It honestly makes me NOT want to vote for their preferred candidate because it all feels so forced. Hillary felt SO FORCED to so many Americans on so many levels. Whereas the rise of Obama was fairly organic and authentic. And when a minority or woman drops out or doesn't win a race, they scream racism and sexism. Both obviously DO play a big part in some areas of this country, but sometimes people just run shitty campaigns. Simple as that. Hillary ran a shitty campaign. That doesn't take away that she DID inspire millions of people and would've been a very capable, competent, and effective President. But her campaign was arrogant and aloof. The media was more interested in electing her than the American people in my opinion. If Biden wins, I do hope he can restore some normalcy to the Presidency. I hope he's boring and mundane. I'm tired of politics being this blood sport, reality show circus.
  14. He's always been a smug, opportunistic, ego-centric, frat boy. But he could still sit on my face.
  15. Young voters have proven to be far more politically active on Twitter than they have at the voting booth. They had their choice to come out and make their revolution happen and they blew it. I’m tired of anyone 18-24 that screams about college debt, environmentalism, healthcare, etc but when you ask them who they voted for, it’s a “no one because they’re all the same” No, child. They’re not. And while Biden was FAR from my first choice, I’ll vote for him. Because I don’t need to have the warm and fuzzies in the voting booth when I check the box. So they can all take several seats.
