what's up, folks
Eumes back for the most important week of the year. L'Chaim, as you would say.
I'm all fucked up--my neck and upper back are plagued with painful stiffness, my right jaw hinge all messed up. what I need is some muscle relaxers and a good dose of Play to Win.

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

John Cusack's posts (that he doubled down on and issued a tepid "apology" for). If you recall, he tweeted an image with a quote from white nationalist and neo-Nazi Kevin Alfred Strom. The tweet suggested Jews were in control and were not allowed to be criticized. This is one example. The Dyke March...

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

I've also been thinking lately about the general rise and celebration of Assholism in this country. you giving up on the Bostonian pastime? There's been a hollywoodization of how people think Boston people speak and act. It's a pretty inaccurate stereotype and no one gets the accent right. Boston i...

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

And as much as the far left will not like hearing this, there is a huge antisemitism problem (this doesn't dismiss antisemitism on the right, but I am not on the right). I see it every day on Twitter. It's insidious and it's evil. And it's driving people like me, someone who has dedicated her life ...

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

Several of my Never Biden friends are POC and women and one is a Muslim woman of color even so it doesn't seem to be comfort and privilege under Trump driving the abstention either.

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

We also have the example of Obama to suggest that Democrats will not only accept the grievous policies of their predecessors but build on them. It's important to remember that Obama put children in cages, prosecuted more whistleblowers than any prior president, extended the war on terror, caused the...

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

And yet, the crazies took over the Republican Party starting in the 1970s not by seizing the presidency right away, but building up. Again, none of this is to say it's easy—clearly the left has lost far more than it's won in America—but looking at things with a narrow lens is beneficial. But the Re...

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

I have no idea how to quantify it, and 2016 seemed to escape quantification. I do know that most of the Bernie supporters I know aren't voting for Biden in November, but I have no idea how statistically significant that is. Biden is an uninspired choice but for Bernie supporters to boycott or prote...

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

I mean I think the Biden people are banking on the Always Blue No Matter Who plus Never Trump Republican vote being enough to make up for losses among the left, the youth, and the independents. They may be right!

Re: The Future of the Democratic Party

as an addendum: I believe this has demonstrated that attempting to capture the Democratic Party is probably not going to work. I will happily leave the Democratic Party to the people that support and believe in it. I still think, in terms of electoral work, spending more time on special district bo...
