  1. Long known as one of the most corrupt politicians in Congress.
  2. I'm curious, give me your lists of top 5-10 worst active congresspeople. Here's mine: 1. Matt Gaetz 2. Marjorie Taylor Green 3. Paul Gosar 4. Louis Gohmert 5. Lauren Boebert 6. Jim Jordan 7. Barry Loudermilk 8. Mo Brooks 9. Josh Hawley 10. Ted Cruz 11. Ron Johnson 12. Scott DesJarlais 13. Thomas Massie 14. Marsha Blackburn 15. Ilhan Omar Sorry, got started and couldn't stop. This is a list of people that should resign from Congress ASAP (obviously they won't). Edited: Reordered and subbed out AOC and Tlaib. There are far worse people who are borderline fascists out there.
  3. https://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/lithium-deposit-found-in-us Posting here bc that could have big impact on global politics.
  4. Got tired of posting this stuff in the GOP thread.
  5. Our time was love. We fought for equality. Too much hate today.
  6. Very apt article on Vivek Ramaswamy and his ilk: https://www.salon.com/2023/08/25/vivek-ramaswamys-15-minutes-are-here-his-surge-of-support-shows-all-the-base-wants-is-trolling/ Excerpt: Because he talks fast and radiates "debate me, bro" energy, Ramaswamy has been dutifully described as "smart" by the GOP voters telling journalists why they like the guy. Anyone who actually listens to the content of his rhetoric, however, notices right away that he sounds like a thudding idiot. For one thing, there are his conspiracy theories, from declaring that "the climate change agenda is a hoax" during the debate to his unsubtle hinting at 9/11 myths on the campaign trail. His supposed "policy" ideas, meanwhile, seem recycled from the gibberish of right-wing memes. And, of course, the average 3rd grader has a better understanding of history, which is especially rich since one of Ramaswamy's "proposals" is requiring a civics test of voters under 25.
  7. Joe Wurzelbacher, the Ohio man who became well-known as “Joe the Plumber” after questioning Barack Obama about his tax plan during the 2008 election campaign, has died after a battle with cancer. He was 49. Wurzelbacher rose to national fame after asking Barack Obama, then the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, about his tax plan and whether he’d have to pay more as a small business owner.
  8. Seriously, wouldn't this fix this whole issue ?
  9. Just proves that these people are completely insane/unhinged. Mitch McConnell is the ultimate Republican. He is directly responsible for them blocking most of what Obama wanted to do and completely stacking the Supreme Court with his hypocrisy. Now they have turned on him because he says it’s bad for America to try and impeach Biden on their made up alligations. The GOP has always been pathetic but this is a new low for them. Never saw them turning on Moscow Mitch.
  10. The Dow hit a record on Monday and the S&P 500 hit a record yesterday - economy is really rebounding from Trump's disaster.
  11. https://simonwdc.substack.com/p/a-blistering-june-jobs-report-the Biden's 13.1m jobs is almost 7 times as many jobs as were created in the 16 years of the last 3 Republican Presidencies, combined. It is also millions more than were created in the entirety of any of their three individual Presidencies. Since 1989 and the end of the Cold War, the US has seen 49 million new jobs created. Remarkably 47 million of those 49 million jobs were created under Democratic Presidents, 96% - essentially all of them.
  12. In recent days, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) has told associates that he is considering leaving the Democratic Party if President Joe Biden and Democrats on Capitol Hill do not agree to his demand to cut the size of the social infrastructure bill from $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion, according to people who have heard Manchin discuss this. Manchin has said that if this were to happen, he would declare himself an “American Independent.” And he has devised a detailed exit strategy for his departure. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/10/senator-joe-manchin-democratic-party-exit-plan-biden-infrastructure-deal-exclusive/ Lot of hard lessons are about to be learned about leverage.
  13. Very interesting discussion of some current ideas. In the 60's we talked about equality. We talked about freedom of expression. We wanted peace. We believed America would make a lot of progress during the coming decades. We talked a lot about the population bomb the earth is currently experiencing. We believed we would go to the moon. The 70's, 80's and beyond we envisioned a more enlightened earth. We made it to the 2000's and here we are.
  14. Since January, Schumer and Warren have been pointing at Biden to forgive federal student loans. Today, Pelosi set the record straight. "The President can only postpone payments. Forgiveness requires an act of Congress." https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/national/pelosi-holds-weekly-news-conference/2021/07/28/fac066ef-492b-4d4d-9a11-fa80dd3153e1_live.html Why are Schumer and Warren not simply pushing for this in a reconciliation package?
  15. It's amazing that @Little Earl has become the flag bearer of the right wing loonies around here. He's a complete goon but has remained consistent. Poor headhunter and El Gullibo were once somewhat sensible and fun to debate with. TDS has made them devolve into chimpanzees, comparable to Simple Jake and maybe even comrade ben. They make me miss soxcat and rolltide.
