      OMG, I love John Lewis so much. What a WARRIOR.

      What makes me sad is that I don’t see the young or middle age black men walking and learning from Rep Lewis so they can continue the leadership that is so needed.

      Was talking to someone who was collecting petition signatures yesterday, and she has gone door to door canvassing, and she flat out told me that even Republican households here want nothing to do with these Republicans or trump. She felt like this was the year AZ would turn blue. I hope so

      I remember Biden said he would appoint an AA female to the Supreme Court. Did I read that wrong?
      If so I can only think of Kamala as his Supreme Court . He will pick a female VP….that is almost certain!

    • March 11, 2020 at 3:57 pm

      I’m an African American woman and I pray Kamala Harris remains in the Senate. I want #Swagman as Biden’s Wingman because I WANT TO WIN and I WANT TO WIN BIG! BTW, Swagman is Senator Michael Bennet.

          I suspect that you did. I think I saw a video attached to one of the accompanying comments in this March for Our Lives account. I did not see the live event or watch this video.

          But I think it was some members of the organization that did the endorsement in their own individual capacities and probably under the organization’s banner.

          They may have done it without remembering that it is a non-profit so can’t endorse any candidate.

      Sick and tired of seeing the tired old Michael Moore all over CNN and MSNBC. Suddenly, while watching him on Rev. Sharpton’s show, the story about how he used Cuba to make a point, a while back, came to mind. Compare this to how Bernie talks about their “education system.” I’m not saying our health care or education systems are perfect or that there’s not some truth in some of this, but it’s Cuba and Castro did not have good intentions when they set any of it up for their trapped people. Just ask those who escaped, who are now living in our country.

        Jacqueline. every time I hear that Moore is gonna be on Chris Hayes or any show, I turn the tv. I have a long memory of how he treated PBO and how he was cajoled into finally supporting him. He is an opportunist.

          March 8, 2020 at 8:25 pm

          I agree, COS. He’s done some good things over the years to highlight issues, but ruined all of them through his opportunist traits that followed.

    Two governors requested coronavirus testing kits for their states,

    BILL GATES funds testing:
    “Testing for the novel coronavirus in the Seattle area will get a huge boost in the coming weeks as a project funded by Bill Gates and his foundation begins offering home-testing kits
    that will allow people who fear they may be infected to swab their noses and send the samples back for analysis.
    Results, which should be available in one to two days,
    will be shared with local health officials who will notify those who test positive. Via online forms, infected people can answer questions about their movements and contacts, making it easier for health officials to locate others who may need to be tested or quarantined, as well as to track the virus’ spread and identify possible hot spots.
    Initially, the lab will be able to conduct about 400 tests a day, eventually expanding to thousands of tests a day, said Scott Dowell, leader of coronavirus response at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.”

      I’ve mentioned this here before … but in the late 1890s, my grandfather had to go into the coal mines in Pennsylvania at age 11, “to help support the family.” (Large family; parents came across from Germany.) When the United Mine Workers of America union was formed, it saved his sons from the same fate and made his own working conditions so much better, I am quite sure. My mother told me that my grandfather (a peace-loving man) said about the UMW president, “If anybody says anything bad about John L. Lewis, I’ll kill them!”

      So, it gives me such joy to see unions endorsing Joe Biden! Even in 2020!

      • March 8, 2020 at 8:58 pm

        What a wonderful legacy. So many forget that we are only a few generations removed from children working in the mines, factories, farms, and kitchens. In the Black Georgetown video, Grandmother discusses how Aunts Annabelle and Isabelle didn’t finish elementary school. Their working allowed the two youngest, Grandmother and Aunt Louise to stay in school and graduate high school. Grandmother and Aunt Louise were civil service employees; Aunts Annabelle and Isabelle, domestics. Frankly learned so much more from the domestics in the family. They taught us comportment and social graces; they we insistent that we strive for higher education and wanted us to be prepared for entering the “C” suite.

    From the offices of
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:
    “We are hoping to work with the administration on a coordinated, government-wide plan to respond to the coronavirus. We are pleased that we passed an emergency response bill on an overwhelming, bipartisan basis that provided a significant increase in resources beyond the administration’s request.
    However, President Trump continues to manufacture needless chaos within his administration
    and it is hampering the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. “

    • March 8, 2020 at 11:29 pm

      “In light of reports that the Trump administration is considering new tax cuts for major corporations
      impacted by the coronavirus, we are demanding that the administration prioritize the health and safety of American workers and their families over corporate interests.”
