1/23-24 News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on January 23, 2023 by jcityboneJanuary 23, 2023 Let’s start the week with some levity.
From DWT, “nothing would fundamentally change”.
Biden Unleashed: Appoints Predatory Plutocrat Chief Of Staff

Yeah, similar to Sick Rott, Medicare ripoff crook. Surprised? Nope.
Hired to maintain the craprate status quo
Unfortunately, Wall Street owns the all three branches now. Little chance for that.
Their would be no short fall IF!!!
The more I read, the more I believe there is some serious political dirt on this Hochul.
No offense meant, but I always thought Miranda’s rap musical “Hamilton” was vastly over-rated. Still do.
It was innovative, no one had created a hip-hop musical on a historical theme, so it broke the mold. Probably makes a difference to see it in person; I watched it on one of the streaming platforms a couple of years ago. I was not mesmerized either.
Along the same lines…
I watched it on one of the streams, and I cannot say I was overly impressed either. But it’s innovative, even if I’m not crazy about the storyline.
Michelle Yeoh may end up winning the Oscar, although I think Cate Blanchett’s role in Tar is a force to reckon with. The ending is a little strange, but I’m old school, I think.
The cosmic pendulum is swinging back towards true progress, but with climate crisis worsening, will it be in time?
Thats the trillion dollar question
Not just Arizonans, a lot of the middle class too remember;
It’s Called the American Dream Because You Have To Be Asleep to Believe It” – George Carlin.
I’m rooting for Katie Porter and I like Barbara Lee, but there’s one Dem who I am definitely hoping doesn’t become a California senator.
Is Ro sitting this one out?
No, I think he’s still working on his message, and probably will announce a kickoff sometime soon. I have no idea what his fundraising looks like at this juncture. Katie Porter raised a cool million when she announced.
And from small donors, too. Sound familiar? 🙂 I want to see exactly where Ro stands.
Might be more interested in a presidential run.
History dictates that House members don’t advance that far in the POTUS Dem primaries. It will be interesting to see if Pelosi’s endorsement bears fruit for Schiff (I’m guessing it would be him over Ro, but who knows).
I will not vote for Byedone period. He is mentally unfit for office, and senility is becoming more and more an issue which it should have been with Raygun!
Schiff has probably always been a DNC/Turd Wayer. Lee’s age will hurt her. I’m backing Katie Porter; she knows her constituents including conservatives.
And how many billions to Pfizer and J&J ?
One of the AGFP grandmothers sent out this copy of a letter penned by doctors from Emory.
Emory Doctors Condemn Police Violence Against Cop City Protesters
Bernie Fox News OpEd
$8.5 billion + $745 million = a helluva lot of coin in bribes. 1700 craporate bribers aka “lobbyists” is one big army of $$$$influence$$$$. Nothing new neither.
The American way, If they cant afford our product and if they die- they die, but we made our profit goal from the ones the could pay for our price gouging.
Not that it matters except when it comes to the debt ceiling.
Well, they’ll just jam everything up so nothing passes for now.
T and R x 2, jcb!! 🙂
Yippie, keep rewarding Sinemachin.
I read an essay co-penned by Bill McKibben in the NYT yesterday. The editors allowed a comment thread and it hit the 1000-plus mark quite fast. One comment summed up exactly what I’ve dealt with in my age group in terms of political awareness. (Warning: it’s lengthy.)
“I’m old 70+. I know many my age who are utterly clueless. They watch FOX all day long. I know many folks who are on the ‘dole’ (SSN) who vote GOP because Dems are socialist. Don’t ask them to define ‘socialism’, might as well ask them to define crypto-currency or a unicorn (what’s the difference). Cash the SSN check, run down to the liquor store for a case of Bud, sit on the sofa getting riled up watching Tucker on FOX. This is simultaneously an eye-rolling and forehead-slapping occasion for me. The GOP will throw you and your SSN and Medicare under the bus in a New York minute.”
See what I mean?
oh hell just go to any website comment section, Alot of the comments i read tells me Humanity is doomed.
