If he had only made turtle boy sign off on those $2000 checks back at the end of Oct, his ass would have likely won. But he was too busy running to his echo-chamber rallies and getting high off of people screaming his name. Never took into account that there might be countless voters sick of his shit and having voted… Read more
Listen, just because you’re too lazy to google the progressive laws that Democrats have passed over the past 40 years doesn’t negate that they have passed many major bills intended to help average Americas. A lot of what Democrats have gained over that time has taking place in boring mandatory spending bills that… Read more

Yes, explaining… Read more
10% of their federal funding is way too small to be a forceful reason for local law enforcement to adopt all these changes. That’s “let’s cinch our belts and make ends meet so we can continue to brutalize black people”-level persuasion. We need “damn we would have to fire 50% of our officers if we don’t satisfy these… Read more
