This is the way to go to make the Electoral College irrelevant.
How much do we Americans hate children? It’s not just that we force millions of them to live in poverty, or be denied adequate health care, or are leaving them a world without polar ice caps. We also like to shame them and starve them in the lunchroom:

Bad Democrats must be primaried and replaced with good Dems — just the way AOC did it. Some of you should run. The Democratic Party is trying to stop any progressive challengers. Read: “Young Democrats at 40 College Campuses Call for Boycott of the DCCC”
White people. Nobody likes giving up power. And they never see the writing on the wall. The new day arrives and no one has the heart to tell them they and their old tired privileged ways are over.

Did u ever have the urge to call Delilah and ask her to play something that would make the country feel better, & then she dedicated it to “that special lady holding the torch for all of us in the Harbor.” And, as if by magic, tomorrow morning, he packed his bags and left. TheEnd
MSNBC is doing an hour-long town hall in 20 min., beginning at 8pm ET — all about the #GreenNewDeal w @AOC + @chrislhayes! Tune-in! There’s a reason they’re scared of her. They should be. (BTW, she turns 35 in 2024. Just sayin’.) #AOCAllIn

What a true world leader looks like. The prime minister of New Zealand put on a hijab, said “They are us,” announced the gun laws we’re going to change and called out white supremacists, haters and Donald Trump. She’s 38.

Happy 86th RBG!! Ageless, priceless, fearless. Our national treasure. We are all here for you.
HAPPY 85th BIRTHDAY RBG!! “I would like to be able to take out my pocket Constitution and say that the equal citizenship stature of men and women is a fundamental tenet of our society like free speech.” -- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Equal Rights Amendment
As we await the release of the Mueller report, Trump again threatens violence.
Yeah, Bernie. You’re sooooo not relevant! Right about climate change. Right about income inequality. Right about health care. Right about the war. And the next war. And the war they’re planning to conduct next. Stop being so right!! You’re making yourself irrelevant!
All these weak-kneed Dems and hypocritical Republicans sneering at “socialism” when they are ALL 4 socialism for the rich. The “Capitalism” they claim to support does nothing but bludgeon and bloody the working people of this country. Our youth are going to bring an end to this.
Trump’s attempt to create his own Gulf of Tonkin lie fails for now—but he won’t stop. He needs to create a major distraction soon as his crime family faces the eventual music. From the NY Times:“Footage Contradicts U.S. Claim That Maduro Burned Aid Convoy”
Yes! International Women’s Day! How ‘bout this: Let’s pass the Equal Rights Amendment for women THIS YEAR to honor the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote. C’mon people! This is a no-brainer! Let’s make it the law!

HAHAHAHA!! Hey fellow angry Midwesterners w/ a high school education like me—how u like your Trump now? You were right 2 b pissed off—but to recklessly throw your vote away...u like getting fucked now? Hey I grew up w/ you—pull your heads outta your ass!

10 yrs ago, the “Capitalism: A Love Story” crew w/ fan-boy Hugo Chavez. At the UN he called W. the Devil and claimed he could tell Bush was nearby because he could smell the sulfur Satan emits. Hilarious. Loved how he drove the heads of our military-industrial complex crazy.
Every Day it takes a newspaper from the United Kingdom (which is neither united nor a kingdom) to tell us stories like this about ourselves that we might not otherwise know.

Cannot wait to see what I’m sure will be yet another piece of powerful filmmaking by the great Ava DuVernay. Five innocent human beings — Donald Trump took out a full-page ad to call for their execution. What if he had prevailed then as he is prevailing now?
Yeah, Mr. Meadows, you’re an effin’ racist. Get it all out of your system bro because a country like ours which is nearly 70% female, people-of-color and/or young adults is taking power—and the day of the angry, racist, white man is soon going to be a thing of the past, farewell.
After testifying to Trump’s crimes for four hours, things got real...
Wow. That was something. The president who is my cousin? HERBERT HOOVER! Apologies to all who suffered during the Great Depression. I had nothing to do with it. The first to guess it was Hoover, our winner, is @Destinyuhva ! Congrats. We’ll send u your prize.
Thank you Spike! So many of us who make these films owe you so much.
Which President is my cousin? There are 41 separate sets of Presidential DNA, and I’m connected to one of them. To help you out, I’m gonna go out on a limb and give you a clue: The President that I’m related to is a man. “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates”, PBS 8pm tonite
Can you guess which America president is my cousin? You have 45 choices. A prize for the winner! Can you guess the look on my face when Professor Henry Louis Gates tells me the name of that President? Find out tonight when I appear on “Finding Your Roots” on PBS—8pm ET&PT, 7pm CT
Tomorrow night, Tues Feb 26, I will be one of the subjects on the PBS show "Finding Your Roots" hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Whatever I thought the story was of how my family came to America, that all got turned on its head! Watch: 8pm/ET&PT, PBS.
I’m not for Amy Klobuchar because if the Democrats run a centrist or moderate, Trump will win. But when I heard how she mercilessly beats up on her staff AND eats salads with a comb, I thought, huh, maybe she COULD beat him. A crazed street fighter versus a crazed street fighter?
I watched “Larry Charles Dangerous World of Comedy”, new on Netflix. Wow. The director of Borat & Religulous takes a world tour of comedy in Iraq, Somalia, Palestine & elsewhere-plus a deep dive in the US. Comedy as resistance, rebellion & refuge. Watch!
A must-read, whether you’re for Bernie or not. Nobody has to make up their mind a yr in advance. But the facts must be told. We need the one who will CRUSH Trump. “20 Reasons Bernie Sanders Is The One To Beat Trump In 2020 (*Backed By Data)” (from Medium)
Too early to endorse, but very happy to see Bernie Sanders running again! Medicare for All, the $15/hr minimum wage, free college tuition — all ideas pushed by Bernie in 2016 (they called him crazy 4 this) and now all polls show the MAJORITY of Americans take the same position!
