At a time when a would-be dictator must be defeated by an overwhelming margin, most polls show the race for the presidency is within the statistical margin of error or simply too close to call.
What’s phony about colorblindness is that it involves consciousness of discrimination in only one direction." ----Koshersalaami
A while ago I thought of a way to illustrate the difference between injecting money into an economy at the bottom and at the top.
In his mind, he determined that since the virus would do the most harm to people of color who lived in 'blue state' cities, there was no real need to declare a national emergency and react and respond accordingly...
Not necessary for this short a post
So what he was actually saying was: You cannot be elected to public office in South Carolina if you’re a liberal young African-American or immigrant.
Under review. Context of this post may be wrong. ks Answer: “If you are a young African-American, an immigrant, you can go anywhere in this state. You just need to be conservative, not liberal. Sen. Lindsey Graham, 10/9/20
I don’t understand the Republican calculation here. The math doesn’t work.
Donald Trump is at the epicenter of a severe outbreak and cluster of COVID19 infection at the White House.
What white Privilege Looks and Sounds Like
I understood that he wouldn’t care if people he didn’t know got sick with COVID-19. I didn’t know that not caring would extend to people he interacts with all the time personally.
On February 7, 2020, Donald J. Trump told reporter Bob Woodward that COVID-19 could be transmitted through the air, that it was very dangerous and that it would be difficult to contain, saying, “This is deadly stuff,” Why, then, did Donald Trump - having admitted to knowing this - launch an anti-mask crusade that is largely responsible for the spread of the epidemic throughout the United States.
Now that DJT has contracted COVID-19, reality has taken some strange twists. If DJT becomes incapacitated, he would have to turn the presidency over to Pence, who would become acting president,...unless or until Pence comes down with it. At that point, Nancy Pelosi becomes Acting President.
The 'official' narrative is that the Trump's got the virus from Hope Hicks.
When you think about renouncing cannibalism, I can’t believe they have not renounced it already
A poll was just conducted by the Yale School of Management. They polled attendees at Yale's Chief Executive Leadership Institute CEO Caucus. These guys like Trump because of his tax and regulatory policies, right? Wrong.
Last night, though, I found myself quite surprised. Donald Trump shocked me. You might think this is a criticism of Trump’s conduct. It isn’t. Trump’s conduct did not shock me in the slightest. The thing I can not get my head around was what Trump did not do.
If Trump isn't beaten by landslide proportions, on the ground at the polls, on election day, we may well lose the fight to retain and secure our democracy....
His words are already a white supremacist call to violence meme.
The NY Times has reported that Donald Trump paid $750 in taxes in 2017. Well, that’s how most people are reading it but, strictly speaking, that’s not what the Times reported. They reported that he paid $318,672 in taxes in 2017. That’s a pretty big difference. Why isn’t Trump calling anyone on this? Why isn’t he talking about the other $317.922?
His tax returns dispel all his pretensions to wealth and sacrifice, and his reelection campaign is running out of time.

The winner is promised $1 million and headlining a show in Las Vegas. The show turns out to be two performances of a variety show, and the million is paid out over forty years.
Trump must be beaten AT THE POLLS by insurmountable margins or our democracy will face demise and ruin...
"A lot of it is about the genes, isn’t it, don't you believe? The racehorse theory. You think we’re so different?"
So, you might ask, what’s so bad about that? Isn’t art to be interpreted? Yes. Art should be interpreted. It is fluid and flexible, and if interpretations help one to enjoy, then do so.
"An apex predator, also known as an alpha predator or top predator, is a predator at the top of a food chain, without natural predators."
Packing the Court is a violation of tradition, but so is refusing to vet the Supreme Court nominee of a sitting President. Both are technically legal. The fuss will be asymmetrical. That will be the height of hypocrisy and we should treat it as such.

Donald Trump wants to take control of the curricula of the American public school system and is trying to give that control to members of organizations with ties to conservative think-tanks in an attempt to subvert the educational system to suit his belief systems.

There was a time when Blackness in America involved an internal psychological struggle with personal connections to the condition of slavery. Some felt shame. I am not judging that, but I don’t agree with it.

Kamala Harris is a complete psychopath who has no business being on a ballot anywhere much less on a presidential ticket.
Either get on board or get out of the way...
Yesterday, Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate. It is a solid choice. In an earlier incarnation of Presidential politics, this would have been something of a ‘Hail Mary’.
Once again, Democrats make history as Biden makes a momentous VP choice.
While the Democrats and the media are focused on the counting of votes, he will declare the election to be a hoax and the results to be fake news....
When he gave me the news, my brain could not make sense of it. I couldn’t even make sense of the road I was driving on.

This sound bite will get Trump more votes than anything else he is likely to say during his campaign for reelection....
Sadly, the post by Pannier is a stillborn piece of invective. Do your own research about such things. Do not trust that author.

Biden throws down the gauntlet, and draws a line in the sand...
In the wake of nationwide protests over the police murders of George Floyd and other people of color who are too numerous to enumerate, the current occupant of the Oval Office has completely ignored the armed occupations of state capitals and city halls by armed reactionaries, right wing militias and white supremacists...except when he chooses to praise them as "loyal Americans."

Most racism in the United States is perpetrated by people who don’t admit their racism. Because they don’t admit their racism, the reasons for their views are not discussed; if they do discuss their reasons they are dismissed as immoral. The problem with that dismissal is that it leaves their reasoning in place
Every black person in this country knows that if Trump were a black man, he would have been impeached or assassinated by now.
Trump will precipitate a divisive and messy constitutional crisis if Republicans don't acquire sufficient backbone to tell him that he must go peacefully and quietly when the election results are finally in.
