    • Hello equinoxio21. There seems to be a real war right now in the Democratic party between the progressives which seems to be where the energy is, and the old style moderates that most of us call the corporate Democrats. I really worry that if we nominate Biden or Pete Buttigieg we will lose to tRump. Biden is stuck in the 1970s to 1980s. Mayor Pete seems to think people want someone vague and who thinks working with the political party that hates to work with Democrats is a great idea. The people we need to turn out seem to not be interested in either of them. Hugs

      • I’ve shut down the news almost completely. A relief to my feeling of helplessness… But I stumble across bits and pieces as in your post. What I see from the outside is the incapacity of the Democrats of pulling together… And the incapacity of generating new talent. How old is Sanders, for God’s sake? And Warren ain’t no youngster either… We’ll see how it develops… Cheers

        • Hello equinoxio21. I can understand the news block out. I just replied to Nan that that I have been watching more than reading for three days. Biden is also 77. It really angers me Joe Biden just attacked the left in the UK elections. Yes, the guy running for the Democratic party attacked the left and praised the center which lost and then basically praised the right. Does he know what side he is on? This is why the Democrats will lose if we go with a moderate, people now see them as Republican lite. Republicans won’t vote for them as they want the full Republican, the left won’t vote for them as they don’t want Republican lite, and the moderates simply are not enough to win. Remember Hillary ran as a moderate and lost to tRump. Be well. Have a great weekend. Hugs

            • Hello Nan. I am sorry, I am trying hard to remain positive, but there is so much disinformation being passed of as reporting that I feel I am trying to talk over a jet engine sometimes. Some “reporters” are paid actors writing slanted or deliberately false articles, others are simply so bias they don’t care what is correct or not. We have become a country of fake news. This may well be the most important election of our time, and we can not listen to corporations and wealthy that want the status quo as that is the way to insure we do keep going as we are with the Republican minority ruling as an authoritarian government. Hugs

              • There’s little doubt the “news” is filled with negative stuff. And even when someone like Greta is given a prestigious honor, “someone” has to throw ugly barbs at her which then takes away from the deserved recognition she’s been given.

                I keep telling myself .. this too shall pass … but it sure seems to be dragging its feet.

                • Hello Nan. I was shocked that his people felt that putting his head on her body on the cover of the magazine was a good campaign move. How utterly stupid, yet his cult following loved it. The Republicans howled with rage when the professor testified that “tRump can name his son Barron but he cannot make him a baron”, they demanded children not be made fun or attacked. Yet 16 year old Greta is OK to be vilified and bullied because the Dear Leader of the cult got his feelings hurt and dislikes her. It is Ok when a Republican does it. Hugs

                  • Of course it is! At least in this administration. What’s amazing is how many people are totally blind to the duplicity.

  2. I don’t know how this guy is but he’s brilliant! Warren and Sanders would make a great team. President and VP, VP and President. Fingers crossed it happens.
