    I like Mayor Pete I’m sure he’s a good guy and he probably never stole a freight train. I’m sure he has ambitions beyond being a Mayor of a decent sized city. But yesterday after it became apparent that he was going drop out of the race everyone on twitter was suggesting that he be “GIVEN” a cabinet position. Excuse me but what has Pete done to deserve such a distinguished position. Every female candidate had to earn every position they’ve attained. Kamala, Amy, Warren, those women had to fight tooth and nail and scratch for whatever they got. So please spare with this “awwww Pete deserve something” bullshit. In politics they don’t hand out fucking participation trophies. Pete needs to get his ass out their and put the work in and then maybe if he’s lucky he’ll get something.

      This kind of stuff has turned into a parlor game on twitter. One thing people are not realizing is that every single department and agency in our government has been torched, trashed and vaporized by an entire gang of idiots and corruption specialists. It’s going to take seasoned professionals to help put things back together on every single front. Thousands of people have walked away from their jobs or have been fired. It will take years and years to restore even a functioning government FOR THE PEOPLE. I hope whoever wins has the good judgement to hire seasoned professionals who have deep experience in restoration.

    • March 2, 2020 at 12:13 pm

      While the women had to fight tooth and nail and scratch for whatever they got, I don’t see that as a reason to preclude Pete from serving in the next Dem administration. He is just one of many under 50 talents in the party. I sincerely hope that a Dem administration WILL NOT cannibalize the legislative branch, but will instead, draw the cabinet from those talents that are out of office.

        I’m not saying to preclude Pete, what I’m saying is that Pete doesn’t automatically get to go to the front on the line when it comes to getting a position in a Dem Administration.

      They are all anti-corporation and anti-pac money until they actually need pac money and corporation fund raising. Super Pacs and corporations aren’t the problem when you’re trying to make significant changes that benefit middle and poor America. Just look at everything President Obama was able to accomplish, and he did it without once uttering the word “oligarch” or get rid of the billionaires. Do you think Alabama or Kentucky is in the trouble they are in because of some oligarch, no. They are in trouble because of the way they vote.

    (Please see Meta’s comment about Joe at the end of last thread.)
    Thank you, yes.
    You know when you think someone knows what you’re thinking because you’ve been up front about your views, and you’ve been on the same team for so long? Am just one voice here, but am thinking my intentions may be misunderstood. We’re on the same side. The Dynamic Duo has had my heart and soul since the first possible moment! Like many here I was focused on the Obama issues blow by blow, moment to moment. And during those years we learned that policies in Congress always get watered down. And now we see the world getting dystopic FAST. Corporations are ever on the ascendance…candidates owe them…and we now have a Bloomberg.
    1) We need very, very strong positions and policies from the get-go. Woolly or lazy today will not make the cut.
    2) Biden needs the Young Vote to make it all the way – and Sanders is flat-out commandeering that Vote.
    3) So Joe must be clear, current, and proactive on lots of issues and let us hear more about them.

    • March 2, 2020 at 12:57 pm

      For example:
      Our children are learning they’ll be trying to survive terrible climate changes when we’re gone – yes that soon! Paris deal compliance basically zero….global emissions are uniformly worse. 2030 is the first climate deadline to meet and No escaping it. We’re all wasting our breath and merely playing linguistic political kabuki without this very basic building block to protect our species.
      —My point: Joe must get into the weeds and step up if he wants the Votes to win.
      —It is because I love him, care for, and want to protect all Americans that I say this.

    I MUST bring over meta’s comments about Biden…

    Somebody asked me the other day why I’m voting for Biden. It’s so SIMPLE, people.

    He’s an honest and decent person. He speaks truth.
    His heart is in the right place.
    He has a clean conscience.
    He’s served this nation honorably, especially as VP to the most honorable man ever to be POTUS. He’s learned from the BEST.
    He can and will restore our reputation globally because he’s been in the room where it happened.
    He is a lifelong SOLID Democrat who holds Democratic values.
    He appears to have a healthy ego, not given to neediness and self-absorption.
    He is a family man who knows the value of love and compassion.

    Just for starters.

    at the same time that China was likely testing at least 1 million of its own residents.
    Meanwhile, public health officials had no fallback testing option until the Food and Drug Administration granted approval for hospitals and other labs to develop their own homegrown tests on Saturday — more than six weeks after the first U.S. case of coronavirus was identified.”
    “Having failed to track and quash isolated cases, it may be too late to now guard against a widespread outbreak
    of coronavirus in the United States. Health officials have increasingly shifted their mindset from “containment” — stopping the virus altogether — to “mitigation,” or preventing the virus’ worst effects on Americans.
    Chris Meekins, a former Trump administration HHS emergency-preparedness official, on Sunday said the risk of significant U.S. outbreaks had risen from 33 percent to 75 percent in the last week alone.”
    ““Focusing on just 15 cases was a tragic health care disservice,” said a former HHS official.
    “Hospitals and health providers needed to know about the risks and get ready to take more steps.”

    Trump administration orders four Chinese news outlets in U.S. to reduce staffs as media war between two countries escalates

    The four outlets have been ordered to reduce the number of Chinese nationals working on their staffs by roughly 40 percent.
    The action comes on the heels of a State Department decision last month to require five Chinese news organizations to register as foreign missions and provide the names of employees. China responded by expelling three Beijing-based Wall Street Journal reporters.

        The U.S. is transporting and dumping megatons of plastic continuously on smaller nation despite objections and desperation, and it must stop. We must find the solution to plastic production, impossible as it may seem. Communities like Penzance in U.K. are very close to plastic free.

    “A surprising 1 in 8 people in the United States experiences hearing loss…an estimated 1 million Americans are profoundly deaf and use American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate.
    For them, the modern world is often an interruption waiting to happen.
    Lines of sight are broken, narrow walkways and stairs prohibit chatting, and conversations are limited in a crowd…
    An exciting architectural project called DeafSpace has been rethinking public spaces for the deaf.
    It was launched almost a decade ago by Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., the largest university for deaf students in the United States. New university buildings have glass walls and multilevel open spaces for group discussions — with screened-off areas for private conversations.
    Some of these simple but effective designs are now being incorporated into nearby commercial businesses, including coffee shops and restaurants that cater to Gallaudet students.
    The school is hoping to educate architects around the country about the needs of the deaf community.”

    Wanted to say so much more, but words are escaping my vocabulary. Sheer sadness. All I can say, don’t ever let one week go by or think your fam or loved one must be busy because he/she isn’t responding to yr calls, or knock on door. It’s godawful to find out that loved one has been long gone, alone in apartment or home. That’s what I found. And had to figure thru the emotional & legal quagmire. That’s where I’ve been.

    Thank you TOD Fam for your posts. They all helped me find joy. Grand Thanks NW!
