Thanks pb4 for creating this thread.

On the day before Labor Day Bernie was not considering as a vacation. He was just warming up for his Presidential run.?

T and R, pb4!! I coined that saying about ‘the usual excellent suspects’ cos I told LD you guys (gender neutral) would help out. That was 4 years ago. I wish Bernie would take a break. I know he’s on a mission, but he forgets he’s still human. 🙁

My friends (female) in high school used to call me out for calling them guys as a group. I am glad to see that it has finally caught on. = )

I’m told it’s passé now. On Twitter, they all use “y’all”, which is really weird to me, as I’m not from the South.

WindDancer13

Lol, that is another one that I use regularly. I just tell people I AM from the South . . . southern California.

And since laborers tend to be consumers as well, here is another* example of well-informed (-on) consumers: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/amazon-google-smart-speaker-john-borthwick-122503661.html

Even though the article is slanted towards Biden it does make a point.

Why black voters are backing 2 old white guys.

A divide among African Americans between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders has major implications for the race heading into the fall.

ROCK HILL, S.C. — A generational divide among black voters is persisting in the Democratic primary — between the two old white men.

Joe Biden has amassed a staggering lead among older African Americans, commanding nearly two-thirds support of black voters 65 and older in the most recent Morning Consult poll. Bernie Sanders is the favorite of black millennials, though his margin with that group is much smaller. Among all black voters, Biden is leading Sanders, 41 percent to 20 percent.

Biden and Sanders have maintained their edges even as other candidates — including two African American senators, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, have courted black voters more aggressively in recent months. Though opinions could change in the runup to voting, the preferences of African Americans this deep into the campaign has major implications for the election: As black voters go, so goes the mantle of Democratic front-runner — and likely the presidential nominee.

Happy Labor Day everyone. Thanks PB for the post!

In what was described as its deadliest attack on Yemen this year, the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition on Sunday killed more than 100 people with airstrikes on a detention center in Dhamar city, forcing aid workers to divert medical supplies intended for the nation’s cholera epidemic to treat victims of the bombing.

Franz Rauchenstein, head of the the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delegation in Yemen, which responded to the attack and searched for survivors under the rubble, called the bombing “disturbing” and a likely war crime.

“The location that was hit has been visited by ICRC before. It’s a college building that has been empty and has been used as a detention facility for a while,” Rauchenstein told AFP. “To hit such a building is shocking and saddening—prisoners are protected by international law.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who led the War Powers effort in the Senate, said Sunday that “U.S. bombs, logistical support, and intelligence for the Saudi dictatorship’s airstrikes make us complicit in this nightmare.”

“Congress has declared this war unconstitutional,” tweeted Sanders. “We must now stand up to Trump and defund all U.S. involvement in these horrors.”

One more issue where Bernie was a rare voice against the country’s worst impulses.

Sadiq Khan renews beef with US president, criticizing him for canceling trip to Poland to commemorate start of World War II.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan renewed his rivalry with Donald Trump, mocking the U.S. president for “dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course” over the weekend.

Khan’s comments came after Trump pulled out of a trip to Poland to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II to concentrate on Hurricane Dorian, but then played golf at his private club in Virginia.

“He’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course,” Khan, who traveled to Poland to attend a commemoration ceremony on Sunday, told POLITICO’s London Playbook.

Khan also took aim at the U.S. president for emboldening racists to speak out from the fringes of society.

“These people have been inspired by mainstream politicians who subscribe to their point of view,” Khan said. Trump “is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable. If I don’t stand up and call that out I think I’m doing a disservice to Londoners who chose me as their mayor.”

tRump is a dimwitted entitled dumbazz. Mar-A-Lago may have escaped Dorian, but there are 2 more months left in the storm season down here. His dump is very close to the water. A major storm surge would wipe it out.
