T and R, jcb!! ❄️☮️😊👍❄️ You read my mind. I just posted a comment on your O/T yesterday that hope you all are doing okay. No power outages, etc.🙄

Good morning. @magsview and @oldtown61 and the nest, I apologize for lighting into you and causing trouble in the nest yesterday. I don’t always walk my talk about having difficult conversations in a calm way, and I was over the top in my reaction to your posts on Dore. I want the nest to be a place where people feel welcome, and I took away from that yesterday.

That said, I will always, hopefully in a calm way, object to any comparison of Dore to Assange or Bernie, both deep heroes of mine. And you can call me most anything, just don’t call me a liberal! :O)

And thanks for the thread, jcb!

My apologies also. I hope you will remain as mad as hell though.
We just can’t let stress take over. Particularly for you and I.

This is first and foremost, a political site. It’s where a bunch of liberal/ progressive political junkies hang out. I am example number one. 😊👍 We will get into arguments, nature of the beast. 😊👍 But we quietly police this site. Any dumbsh1t FRight scum get on here, we know. And they don’t stay on here for long.

It will be very difficult to beat Andrew Yang in June if he keeps his voice as accurate and necessary as this one.

Not to mention the tremendous amount of Press he gets.

He’s the only candidate that mught be able to stand up to our murderous bully, King Cuomo II

If looking at the markets is suddenly so dangerous, why do these outlets have entire channels devoted to it?

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/536771-west-virginia-governor-urges-congress-to-go-big-on-covid-19-relief

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Republican, on Monday argued that fiscal concerns should be set aside as the nation struggles to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, putting pressure on centrist Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to support a large COVID-19 relief bill.

“We need to understand that trying to be, per se, fiscally responsible at this point in time, with what we’ve got going on in this country — if we actually throw away some money right now, so what?” Justice told CNN in an interview.

“We have really got to move and get people taken care of,” he said.

Justice doubled down on his statement in a follow-up interview with MSNBC in which he urged Congress to “go big.”

“I absolutely believe we need to go big,” he said, chastising lawmakers in Washington over the months-long standoff before Congress passed a compromise $900 billion relief package in December.

“I believe forevermore that it was ridiculous beyond belief to have Democrats and Republicans fighting and couldn’t pass a stimulus package for months,” he said. “It was godawful. That’s just all there is to it. You had people that were suffering that needed to pay their power bill, needed to pay their rent or their car payment.

“At this point in time in this nation, we need to go big. We need to quit counting the egg-sucking legs on the cows and count the cows and just move. And move forward and move right now,” he added.

Will Joe be on Manchin’s side?🤔

The White House has “been in touch” with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) about its economic relief proposal, press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday, after the moderate senator expressed surprise at Vice President Harris’ recent media appearances in his home state seeking to boost support for the package.

“We’ve been in touch with Sen. Manchin as we have been for many weeks and will continue to be moving forward,” Psaki said when asked if the White House had reached out to clear the air with the West Virginia senator.

Psaki would not say whether President Biden had personally reached out to Manchin, but said the senator is “an important partner as we look to move forward on this package and of course all of the president’s agenda.”

This is Manchins 15 minutes of fame, and he will milk it for all its worth for the next 2 years at least

Another fascist trying to play the populist card, as far as I’m concerned. The Establishment imperils us all by driving people into the arms of these cretins.
