Success excuses a lot of sin

Which is why the line of attack that Trump is a broke failure cuts deep.

Yeah it may not convince braindead Trumpers but Dump can't win with just them. Some of the recent weakly attached Biden supporters (the reason why Biden is slowly rising in the polls) can latch onto Dump being a failure as a reason to be more secure in their support of Biden. At this point Biden just needs to hold the vote share and avoid anyone flip flopping back to Dump.

A constant reminder between now and election day on just how much of a failure Dump is will tend to suppress his base's turnout. Many of them have already decided against mail in voting. So why should they stand out in lines on election day to vote for a complete loser and failure? I am not saying it is going to cut it by 50% or even 10% but elections are won and lost on the margin. Could 1% feel stupid, even though they will never admit it to anyone, and simply not vote for a failure. I think so.

So I think Trump being a failure is even more powerful than Trump being a cheat. Nobody respects a failure and a loser.

I told you all along that Trump was flat broke. Just because he’s been living on a line of credit doesn’t mean he’s not broke. Trump’s net worth is deeply negative, and therefore less than yours or mine. He’s not a billionaire, a millionaire, or a thousandaire. His ass is broke.

I hope to see lots of cartoons, jokes, and memes about how broke Trump is.

The more the better. Trump is so egotistical and vain just about anything gets under his thin skin but this is the one that will hurt him the most.

Come on creative types flood the airwaves, twitter feeds, meme generators, and newspaper political cartoon pages. Everywhere Trump and Trump supporters looks there should be a reminder of how he is the failure in chief.

Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform

Source: Raw Story

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.

“I don’t believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose,” Feinstein argued.

“It is not often used, it’s often less used now than when I first came, and I think it’s part of the Senate that differentiates itself,” Feinstein falsely claimed.

Dump talking about Biden said "I've done more in 47 months than he's done in 47 years" ...

.. well yeah if we are talking about more catastrophic damage to our country and people that is a very true statement.

Good job for honesty Dump.

Ginsburg's passing really broke my wife.

She was crying last night. Ginsburg really was her hero. I want to make a donation in Ginsburg's memory to the senate seats most likely to flip. Any suggestions? Progressives, women, or minority candidates would be a bonus but I am a pragmatic guy would prefer seats which are winnable.

UPDATE:
Based on suggestions I am going to donate to
Harrison
Gideon
Bullock
Greenfield

in memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in order to try and turn the Senate blue and protect her legacy.

Yet another attack on women by another means

Trump's plan would remove the head of household exemption. Disproportionately 'head of households' (single parents) are women. Their taxes will go up for having the audacity of not being married.

“If you’re a low- or moderate-income single parent, you’re going to get hurt,” said Tax Policy Center fellow Bob Williams, according to CBS News.

There is a way to bypass the Electoral College without a constitutional ammendment.

http://www.fairvote.org/national_popular_vote

States are allowed under the Constitution to award their electors however they like. In theory having a coin flip would be legal. The national popular vote is an interstate compact where the states pass legislation to award all their electors to the winner of the national popular vote.

So far 11 states (well 10 states + DC) totaling 165 electoral votes have passed this compact in their state. States which have already passed the national popular vote:
CA
DC
HI
IL
MA
MD
NJ
NY
RI
VT
WA

To avoid penalizing states which adopt early the compact only takes effect once states totaling 270 electoral votes pass similar legislation. Once that happens the winner of the national popular vote will always have 270+ EV and the electoral college is essentially moot. It will still exist until repealed by an amendment but it will be easier to repeal it after a couple of decades under the national popular vote. Even if you are in favor of a full repeal the national popular vote is a way to get there.

Meet the Toy Smuggler of Syria



This man risks his life to bring toys to the kids of Syria.

Our POTUS wants you to make a plan ...



Sadly in Virginia I can't vote early. However if you live in a state that hasn't asininely decided 3 million people must all vote in the same 11 hour window ... VOTE EARLY!

In the good ol' days ...

This is a chilling example of why Trump can not be President.
