      My daughter and I both donated and canvassed for Kim and Carolyn Long who came close inWA 3. Aren’t they still counting late-mailed ballots in Washington? Maybe we’ll get one more. YES – recounts in GA and FL with independent verification so the GOP can’t steal these elections. Doesn’t it strike you as unlikely that FL voters would so overwhelmingly restore voting rights to people restored to society after prison but not elect Nelson and Gillum? I smell a rat!

    She tweeted out a photoshopped video of Mr. Acosta to make it look as if he hit her. Sanders needs to go!

      Whitaker was executive director of FACT “which served primarily to level ethics complaints against Democrats.” (Daily Beast)
      –FACT used CRC to put out conspiracy theories about Kavanaugh’s accusers + himself defended Sessions after he lied in Congress.
      –Whitaker: Just another lying, corrupt, Trump lout, voice-piece who has made public statements against the Mueller probe.

      So then he’ll turn it over to “Acting AG” who will then throw it in a furnace, releasing nothing to anyone.

      See? There it is again. They are horrified at being called racist, but doing & saying racist things, meh! What the hell is that?

        Hi Dudette,

        Running behind as usual. Hope you are well. Finally catching up as I am stuck inside all day and night due to the smoke, from the big fire in No. California, that has drifted several hundred miles to where I live. Not good to be outside breathing that stuff.

        I read the article and what I got from that lady’s comments is that once Obama won, Black people started forgetting their place and getting a bit “uppity” (my word) and then calling out a white man. So, yeah, she wanted him back in his place. Those tensions she spoke about would allow Black people to get even more “uppity”. Racial division to her is whites in control and Blacks in their place. White people have learned well over the decades, or centuries, how to say one thing and mean something totally different.

    Good morning TOD. I’m at home today without any outside business, so turned on Home and Family. Well, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but our own Nancie McDermott making Brunswick stew! It looked so good, and it was so good to see you.

    Another woman who won a Congressional seat should not be overlooked. She is my very own new representative, Kendra Horn who defeated a far right Republican man whose only claim to fame was that he was in the Army and “wants to continue the fight.” This was a very red district, and this is a big deal. Even in the reddest state in the union, change is coming. She campaigned on health care and education, and kept that focus. This is the first time we have had a Democratic rep since 1975! Kudos to Kendra and her campaign. Also, my neighbor Susan unseated a long time 81 year old district judge, who fell asleep during hearings, and rarely if ever even appeared, but sent his minions to court. I am so proud of her.
    I am very disappointed that Drew Edmondson lost and that trump junior is now our governor. Also, we got two more Democrats in the State House and the State Senate. We made progress.

    So what’s the GOP Cheater Update? Abrams, Gillum, Beto? How much cheating is given a free pass? Folks stood in line to vote at 7.30 am for Stacey Abrams and then had to go to work! 700 voting machines stood wrapped up and idle in a room. Power attachments were missing and the machine batteries ran out. Candidates names magically reversed. Candidates names were missing. Corrupt people ran for office who didn’t recuse or quit their voting oversight jobs. When do we admit the vote is VOID? And that a valid DO-OVER is the only option?

      Been watching the Gillum count (grandkids are in Florida), and there are scores of volunteers who’ve been re-upped and are in the local offices to work on issues with the ballots today and beyond! So hopeful that when this race and the others are called, the Democrats take it all (or most!).

      I follow that campaign daily, and scores of volunteers are back in the saddle this week and working hard to get the ballot issues addressed to finalize the tally. Light some candles, folks!

    INSIST that Kemp see the process through. Re-count/Runoff. When did GOP ever not do both in this situation?
    -Think what GOP would have done if their opponents had cheated like Kemp/GOP did in Georgia on Tuesday – and the rest.

    I just called Marsha Blackburn’s office and went off!! How did she respond to the shooting? She says we have to be concerned about protecting the Second Amendment!!!! 4587&*$#*)+!@>?< I have NO words. God, help us. She is a CROOK. I have Facebook friends here who are ER nurse and ER doctor. The Opoids crisis is awful here in TN and most people know,especially those in medicine. that she is a BIG reason it's so bad here. She takes millions from the pharma industry and bills she has supported only encourage it. This is my new "representative."

      hey, yesterday WH reporter African American Yamiche Alcindor (PBS) got accused by Trump of asking a “racist question”.
      He then went on to lie about African American support for him (factually only 8%).
      –Yamiche’s question was therefore all about her non-white status.
      –How long?

      So these “white folks” were living on another planet then and missed two earlier opportunities to overcome their uncomfortableness when President Obama was on the ballot. BISH PLEASE.

      As my friend’s daughter said when we were all having a party-line-watch-party on the phone on election night, “Some of us learned how to make the fire. Some of us didn’t.”

      Racists are the stupidest people on the earth. The exact line Bernie used was blatantly racist. No, Bernie, if people “felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African American,” it means they’re racist. And for you to repeat it like it’s normal or understandable means you’re a racist.

      Can’t wait for the day when the media – and the “far left” people who think he’s the man – put Bernie out of their minds. He’s never proven he’s worth any of the adulation, and is just getting worse at hiding it. His t-shirts should read, “I’m an embarrassment to white people.” Maybe I’ll send him one.

      Maybe not. I’m putting him out of my mind – again – now.
