DU Poll: if Sanders is the nominee will tRump be reelected?

U.S. House removes ERA ratification deadline, one obstacle to enactment

The U.S. House gave the Equal Rights Amendment a temporary new lease on life Thursday by voting to remove a 1982 deadline for ratification by the states.

The 232-to-183 vote, on a resolution introduced by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), pushes the issue to the Senate, where Sens. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) have introduced a similar measure.

California lab says it discovered coronavirus vaccine in 3 hours

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/california-lab-says-discovered-coronavirus-123356925.html

"An American biotech company says it created a coronavirus vaccine three hours after getting access to the virus' genetic sequence on Jan. 9, and now scientists are racing to get the vaccine on the market in record time."

"Inovio Pharmaceuticals is based in Pennsylvania, but scientists in its laboratory in San Diego made the discovery."

"Another U.S. company, Maryland-based Novavax, is aiming to make a coronavirus vaccine in as little as three months, although such vaccines can take years to develop. The company made an Ebola vaccine in 90 days."

THANK YOU...for the ❤! Happy V-Day DUers

Almost 66,000 pot convictions dismissed in LA County

https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/13/us/california-los-angeles-marijuana-convictions/index.html

"The cases include 62,000 felony convictions for cases -- including those for marijuana sales and cultivation -- dating back to 1961, and about 4,000 misdemeanor possession cases, District Attorney Jackie Lacey's office said."

"The 66,000 dismissals mean conviction relief for about 53,000 people. About 45% are Latino; 32% are black; and 20% are white, Lacey's office said."

"In November 2016, California voters OK'd the legalization of recreational marijuana by approving Proposition 64. The proposition's passage also allows people to petition the judicial system to have their old pot convictions expunged."

"In 2018, the state Legislature passed AB 1793, which required the state Department of Justice to scour California's crime records and find past cannabis convictions that are eligible to be expunged or downgraded to misdemeanors -- generally, convictions for activities that would no longer be crimes under Proposition 64."

Why are Priebus, Hope Hicks, Sean Spicer going back to

work for tRump? And there is that other guy, McEntee too... What is he up to? I am serious. I can't figure it out. What is his angle? This can't be a good thing .

Paging Michael Bloomberg Democrats need to nominate the right person to prevent Trump

"Paging Michael Bloomberg
Democrats need to nominate the right person to prevent Trump from winning a second term."

By: Thomas L. Friedman

"And this candidate knows how to get stuff done ó he can fight this fire at the scale of the fire. His team has for years used social networks to promote progressive issues to centrist and conservative audiences. He wonít cede the internet/Facebook/Twitter battlefield to Trumpís team, who are killers in that space."

"And this candidate is now rising steadily in the polls. This candidate is Michael Bloomberg. This candidate has Trump very worried."
