    I dunno. Given that both parties are in it for the already wealthy and could give two fucks about regular working people, and screw them over as a matter of course, I can see the appeal. Maybe better to get screwed over by a busty gun toting moron than an elderly discombobulated cardboard cut-out moron. Choices….choices.

    The fuck was Biden doing with his arms in his recent TV interview. It was like he was reliving some weird bus driver fantasy in his head. Apologies for the source but its all I could find

    If this had been Trump it would have been wall to wall coverage for a week at least.

    You actually watched one of our dog-and-pony press conferences? When there may have been proper footie on? And if there wasn’t, then, I go outside for a refreshing walk.

    Though I have to differentiate between corrupt and mediocre – and corrupt and mean-spirited dangerous. Trump in office spent most of his time removing benefits and human rights. Biden is as dull as they come; but, at least he’s not 100% dedicated to fucking over working folks to benefit his corporate bosses.

    We feel the difference every day. The 30-40% of Americans who actually study up on electoral politics. Well, maybe, 20-30%.

    Being a furriner I’m not completely up to speed on what goes on in Washington. All I know is that some guy with a cinema in his mansion is causing problems.

    Not a good look for Joe in that vid though. I wonder what cocktail of stimulants animates him. Trump might be a massive douche but he’s a lot sharper than Biden.

    Name one thing the Dems have done for working folks this term. Actually, name ANYTHING the Dems gave done this term. Pretty pathetic.

      About half the regulations favoring working folks that were crushed by Trumpublicans have already been reversed. Most especially those designed originally to stop discrimination in employment or education against women and minorities. Do you actually need chapter and verse? Virtually all the American press acknowledges this. Including the proto-fascist Republicans who want that shit carved in stone.

    “Jan. 6 Protest Organizers Say They Participated in ‘Dozens’ of Planning Meetings With Members of Congress and White House Staff.
    Two sources are communicating with House investigators and detailed a stunning series of allegations to Rolling Stone, including a promise of a “blanket pardon” from the Oval Office” https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/exclusive-jan-6-organizers-met-congress-white-house-1245289/
    The pair both say that in addition to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia), members who participated in these conversations or had top staffers join in included Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).

    “Based on the committee’s investigation, it appears that Mr. Bannon had substantial advance knowledge of the plans for January 6 and likely had an important role in formulating those plans. Mr. Bannon was in the war room at the Willard on January 6. He also appears to have detailed knowledge regarding the president’s efforts to sell millions of Americans the fraud that the election was stolen…Mr. Bannon’s and Mr. Trump’s privilege arguments do however appear to reveal one thing: They suggest that President Trump was personally involved in the planning and execution of January 6. And this committee will get to the bottom of that.”

    “On Thursday, House Democrats will look into what they describe as the oil industry’s decades of disinformation and misrepresentation to delay climate action. They have called executives from Exxon Mobil, BP America, Chevron Corp. and Shell Oil to testify. The meeting, Democrats say, is modeled on a historic hearing more than 25 years ago that held the tobacco industry to account for misleading the public about the harmful effects of smoking.
    Two names likely to come up at the hearing are Charles and David Koch, the conservative petrochemical magnates. They have poured millions of dollars into efforts to discredit the science of climate change. The brothers have given over $145 million to climate-change-denying think tanks and advocacy groups between 1997 and 2018. The Kochs were joined in their efforts by Exxon, which has given nearly $37 million over the same time to spread climate misinformation.” https://www.npr.org/2021/10/27/1047583610/once-again-the-u-s-has-failed-to-take-sweeping-climate-action-heres-why
