Hola, fellow Birdies, Progressives, and Lurkers. We’ve still got flooding and closed areas up here in east central FL around the St. Johns River and related lakes. This female GOPuke who is running against FL Rep. Anna Eskamani called climate change “woke.” Really? You are THAT stupid and clueless? What a yahoo! Our Nest is swept and Open. Hope everyone is doing and feeling well. 🙂
🙂👍 Bernie is right. These yahoos who worship the Orange t##d are cultists. Same thing as a religious fanatic which I’ve known too many of. They are no different from animals dying in the throes of rabies. Mailed out my ballot today.👍☮️
A big if we ever got back to non gerrymandered districts a few indy swing votes could tilt an district election. But with the gerrymandered districts of today no way. Different story with presidential and senate elections to some extent.
Sick Rott has been proudly bragging about it since he’s the yahoo in charge of the Repuke Senate Election cabal.💩
As has the Moron from WI💩💩💩💩
Could use some recs. Comments do contain some anti Bernie trolls.
That’s the problem with wandering over there. I’m lucky if I recognize anyone anymore.🙄
I wandered over there and read it. Rec’d your comment, jcb. 🙂 Added a couple of my own. Actually a lot of the comments surprised me. They were intelligent and thoughtful.
I voted for him. If that’s what he has to do, do it. Then get elected and proceed from there. I am fed up, sick and tired of these FRight freaks winning and controlling. I hate their aggressive stupidity.

Love the billionaires? Yeah, if they paid taxes like the rest of us.
Even then it be rough as their $$$$ buys congresscritters
This SCOTUS is not conservative; it is FR extremist. There’s a big difference in meaning. Media outlets like the NYT need to get that fact straight. This ‘fair and balanced’ BS is a yuge part of the problem.💩
Here’s progressive House candidates from the Northeast/Middle Atlantic. I’ve included my district’s candidate even though he really isn’t as progressive as the others (though he’s fine for our district). He, Bowman, and Riley have the toughest races. The rest should have no problem in their very D districts.
MA-7: Ayanna Pressley
NY-14: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
NY-16: Jamaal Bowman
NY-18: Pat Ryan
NY-19: Josh Riley
PA-12: Summer Lee
RI-1: David Cicilline
VT: Becca Balint
Holmgren is a very popular former coach up in Green Bay. Barnes has to be grinning from ear to ear.
Surprised but pleased
I watched part of the Abrams-Kemp debate. I chuckled at the Libertarian in the middle. He wants to privatize education and health care.
Kemp sounded stronger than I expected. I disagree with his comments, but he’s standing toe to toe with Abrams. She’s right about the ideas she wants to put forward, but Kemp keeps harping how he wants to give more tax cuts. That will appeal to all classes.
These working class yo-yos bite off their economic noses to spite their faces. That tax cut con job has been going on since the wake of the Great Flood. 🙁
They have a budget surplus, so it sounds more appealing to getting money back than investing it for the long term. I think Abrams is right, but even in my state of IL, we are getting tax rebates for property and each person gets $50 person each.
As does Wi but the R’s are fighting over whom would get a rebate IE more to the richest in WI and less to us average Wisconsinites whom would put it to better use.
In my joke of a state, no one gets squat. Except financial crooks and their parasites. Not being bitter, just being a realist.🙄
My country BFF up there is voting straight Democratic ticket and loves Bernie. She’s a natural conservative, but has had it with the GOPukes.
Wish more R’s would think that way but many just cant-addicted to the cult.
No sh#t, sherlock!!
Even Third Way and the New Dems agree
A little late I think. They lost some of the ground they made up in the summer.
