When you have to choose between enacting policies that will help average people or preserving the system that keeps your Wall Street donors wealthy.

Following up on our last post. 140 people died from radiation after Chernobyl, zero died from radiation after Fukushima.
“According to all studies on the subject, coal kills over ten times more people than any other energy source per kWh produced, mainly from fine toxic particulates emitted from coal plants. And coal kills ten times more people in the developing world than in America, simply because they lack regulations like our Clean Air Act.”
A comprehensive report on environmental pollution shows that filthy air, contaminated water and other polluted parts of our environment kill more people each year than anything else– smoking, hunger, natural disasters, war, murder, AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria – costing us $4 trillion a year.
And people wonder why some call mainstream media like CNN, fake news?
Maybe because their recent presidential poll which shows Biden in the “lead” didn’t sample anyone under the age of 45….
“The people don’t want a phony Democrat. If it’s a choice between a genuine Republican, and a Republican in Democratic clothing, the people will choose the genuine article, every time; that is, they will take a Republican before they will a phony Democrat, and I don’t want any phony Democratic candidates in this campaign.
But when a Democratic candidate goes out and explains what the New Deal and fair Deal really are–when he stands up like a man and puts the issues before the people–then Democrats can win, even in places where they have never won before. It has been proven time and again.” – Harry S. Truman
Just got done knocking doors for a local senate candidate. Most people were disinterested, some were rude, and others were outright assholes. On at least two occasions I asked “what issues are important to you?” Both had the same glazed over look on their face. One blatantly said “I don’t really care about anything”.
Don’t care about anything?!? With everything going on in this world, government corruption, environmental degradation, endless war, inequality, madmen ruling the world – and you don’t fucking care about ANYTHING? This is what our country is. A bunch of mindless sheep, trodding along in the rat race.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, some macho meat head opens the door and starts screaming at me. “I’m a marine WE DONT VOTE!!” “Get the fuck off my door”. So much for protecting our democracy and freedom. This is #WhoWeAre
People need to stop clamming Kavanaugh has been “indicted by the public” or he’s been “found guilty with no evidence”. He hasn’t been found guilty or indicted by anyone. His character, or lack of, has been exposed during a public vetting for a public job
