Having control of the legislative and the executive branch, the Democrats’ top priority ought to be to reinstate the pre-clearance requirement under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. We can’t afford falling asleep at the wheel again, and I believe Stacey Abrams deserves a vacation.

Because finding love isn’t about beauty.  It’s about finding the right person for you.  She obviously didn’t do that.

Ah Texas.  The state that thinks it could leave the US and be perfectly fine.  In fact, I wish they would leave..

Something about going to school in Texas, land where oil controls education. If you want to hate America, you should spend some time checking out how they feel about education down there.

One interviewee said his company islaying off workers and debating how aggressively it should pivot away from oil and gas toward renewable energy. If the company does move rapidly toward cleaner energy, he said, he is not sure if there will be a place in it for him. “How much are my skills going to transfer?” Read more

“We want it all”? That’s not a left-wing sentiment, that’s a right-wing caricature of a left-wing sentiment. No way was Pelosi vandalized by anyone on the left - this was done by some MAGA who thought he was being clever.

I truly had so much admiration. I would have be defeated and downtrodden after the stolen Georgia governor’s election and she just fought harder and quietly. A lot of writers and political commentators (including here on this site) spend their time opining on people in states they’ve never visited (while declaring Read more

Lol, mostly just sputtering. She had just fired my best employee without telling me (like, I literally called the employee to find out why her break was taking so long and she told me the store manager had fired her.) I quit because of that, and then 2 other employees left within the week, so I think she was starting Read more

I don’t want to work either, I’m so fucking lazy. I don’t think you have to think that anything is wrong with you, it seems normal to me that we would feel this way.
