    There’s a new non-partisan website to help GOTV across the nation. Movement2016.org begun by Billy Wimsatt, (Gamechanger Labs/youth GOVT efforts) and others to help answer the question, “Where can I donate to make the most difference in the upcoming election?” Be sure to read the great info on their “About Us” page. The focus? To move money to local on-the-ground groups working year-round to GOTV.

    Click on any state to find groups to support. Each group has a description, area of focus, link to their website, donate button, and place for your comments. Multiple ways to donate. Love how I can be in California and find a group in a battleground state to help them GOTV in their community. Check them out!

      And these poll results are something that we seek.
      As we watch his numbers drop from week to week.

      GM Dudette.

      The article is from Jul 9, which seems like eons ago from the perspective of what-the-heck-did-Trump-do-now scale.

      The poll refers to the WI primary which happens next week, and Ryan’s opponent is a loony-tunes Tea Party Trump supporter.

      Real Clear Politics poll data is from May, and has Ryan leading his GOP challenger by either 64 or 73%.

      Have no idea who will win the Dem primary, but crossing my fingers that he will defeat Ryan in Nov.

      Trump tweeted today:

      Can’t find the tweet now, but someone tweeted that this would be like HRC tweeting support for Dem primary challenger to Nancy Pelosi.

      I almost lost my coffee reading PBO’s statement. It’s like dropping the biggest lug in the middle of a lie and watching the lie disappear like a puff of smoke.

        August 2, 2016 at 1:02 am

        That was a little esoteric. I laughed when I read PBO’s statement because we know they’re lying when they say care about veterans, the proof is in what the GOP is willing to spend money on and it ain’t veterans.

      And if that doesn’t get you to the polls in November to vote Democrat down the entire ticket, then nothing will. Thanks Dudette and Seth for this critical info.

      They were unbelievable. And, hold onto your hat, Chris was so respectful of them, that I actually tweeted him a personal thank you. (I was holding my breath, throughout.)

    Good evening TOD! Nerdy, you continue to rock this place each and every day. Thank you!

    Am I the only one around who is feeling particularly emotional after the last week? PBO’s speech moved me to tears. I felt like my soul had been cleansed as he reiterated his passionate belief in all that is right with this country of ours. When that was followed by the Kahns, I just totally lost it. To see the love they feel for this country, even after giving their son, just grabs my heart each and every time I see them give another interview. I don’t think I realized just how much the despicable things coming out of the Trump campaign, and the sheer ugliness of the GOP convention, was having on me. After awhile, you just feel like you are drowning in filth. And even when I turn off the tv, quit twitter for a couple of days, etc it is nearly impossible to get away from.

    Surviving 98 more days of this will be quite the feat. I am not depressed, just emotional about our country and trying hard not to let my feelings for this election season get to me too much.

    One little tip I figured out today. A couple of people have contacted me for help in how to convince possible Trump voters who are anti-Hillary that this is no ordinary election. One today had tried a number of things on his own but didn’t feel like he was making progress. He forwarded the emails and I managed to give him new information to use and a different position to try. SOOOOO when you come across good things that may help you or someone else, you may want to start a list for easy access and use down the road. That way you’re not spending time looking for things on numerous occasions.

    Hope everyone is having a great evening! Loved PBO’s speech to the vets today.

      GE/GM MTM.

      That IS terrifying! And I worked in Malibu in 1978 when the Broadbeach fire raged from the Ventura Fwy (US Highway 101 to the coast in about 4 hours) — on the windiest day of the year which destroyed over 300 homes on the water’s (Pacific Ocean) edge.

      Heard about the fire this morning, and zounds, it looks windy, which is the absolute WORST conditions for a wildfire.

      From the article, written Monday morning:

      “The speed of the has left locals in shock, KXLH reports. By conservative estimates, the fire was growing at a rate of 200 acres per hour after it started early Sunday afternoon. Driven by gusty downslope winds funneled right down the valley, the fire was racing through the foothills southwest of Hamilton.

      Structures in the Judd Creek area have been lost to the wildfire southwest of Hamilton, Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman told the Missoulian.”

      What terrible news for all affected — hope everyone and their animals are safe.

      Is the wind blowing from south to north (i.e., towards you)?

      Hope the weather conditions change SOON. Our weather has cooled off considerably, with highs in the low 80s today vs. mid-to-upper 90s last week, so hopefully that will bring a cooling trend and calm winds to Montana.

        August 2, 2016 at 10:34 am

        This morning they say it seems to be holding and not growing so fast. They believe it is man made. Not sure what happened yet. One man died from a heart attack packing to evacuate. At least 50 buildings burned, not sure how many of them are homes. Everyone is in such shock at how fast it happened.

        Hopefully the wind has died down.

        Will keep you informed. We are now in fire season here.

    Well first time in years – I’m watching morning fool – and they have given the election to Hillary – while noting that she is not going to take it as a given. The frowning white male hanger ons are having a yuuuge sad.

          I usually don’t last longer than 30 seconds – but to see the media attacking Trump – after 9 months of loving him – is quite something. Now they all seem to have decided he is having a mental breakdown.

          • August 2, 2016 at 8:33 am

            I guess when it has gotten so blatantly obvious, so glaringly apparent, that Trump is stark raving mad they begin to start searching for even a small shred of self-preservation……..I’ve never watched that show but just from some of the clips I sometimes watch on video, they are a disgusting crew.

              Yep – non stop attacks on PBO & even while they are against Trump, every 3rd sentence is an attack on Hillary.

                  I like the fact that they are cryin’ meta – they are thinking ANY other candidate could have won this (not true but they think it). I find it interesting that the bridge too far was attacking a soldier who died for his country – while attacking millions of immigrants was seen as positive.

                  There was a good report on Trump supporters by the reporter (Katy Tur??) from NBC. She explained that they believe nothing except what Trump says & hating on Hillary is their main activity. Not interested in policy at all.
