    Sure looks that way to me – GOP wants to pick their voters, because they can’t be sure voters will pick them.

      As I keep saying, at least we have Dolly here in this RED state. Will not be surprised if our governor doesn’t soon follow the rest of these idiots. He is definitely a follower. He couldn’t find he way out of a paper bag……that already had holes in it unless someone helped him.

    My take on Neera Tanden nomination to head OMB, it’s same way I felt about Susan Rice’s nomination process for State. At that time I said here at TOD that Susan is going to have a far larger position. And she did, heading NSA (which is above State). Neera, I believe, will have such position that doesn’t require Senate votes, and she’ll be far better off. Is there a position that oversees OMB? That would crack me up! Karma! 💞

      I was hoping for the same. To hell with hypocrites like Manchin who voted to confirm Republicans who had rude tweets but used them as an excuse to derail Neera.

      I have accounts with CVS and Walgreen’s for medication purposes, and yesterday, the corporate office of CVS in North Carolina called me to ask if I wanted to get vaccinated. I thanked her and said I was already fully vaccinated. It made me feel good to hear that more progress is being made to reach everyone. 💖

      Speaker Pelosi.
      Floor Speech on The For The People Act, HR1:
      (excerpts)
      “The first 300 pages of this bill were written by John Lewis to eliminate voter suppression, which has become rampant in our country…

      Another aspect of this that distorts our democracy is the partisan gerrymandering.
      And that’s why I salute the distinguished Madam Chair for her leadership for a long time now in putting forth redistricting by way of commission. The people should choose their politicians.
      Politicians should not be choosing their voters by this political gerrymandering, and the legislation does that.

      Part of voter suppression that people don’t always recognize is the suffocation of the airwaves of big, dark, special interest money. And one aspect of this bill that has such popular appeal is the fact that people will realize if we reduce the role of big, dark money in politics, we increase the voice – voices of the people.

      We’ll have a better chance to preserve our planet if big, dark money, special interest money is not weighing in. We have a better chance of protecting our children from gun violence with background check legislation if big, dark money, in terms of gun lobbies, is not weighing in. We have a chance to reduce the cost of health care. We have a chance to increase the paychecks. The list goes on. Big, dark money has been an obstacle to progress for America’s working families, suppressing the ability of people to collective – bargain collectively, suppressing the rights of workers in our country.

      Just last night, the Georgia House passed a draconian new voter restriction bill,
      which would end weekend voting, slash the number of mail ballot drop boxes, impose restrictive voter ID for mail ballots, among other actions. They know that their issues are losers with the American people when they oppose some of the issues that are very popular in the public domain. They know that big money and voter suppression is their path to victory and that’s why they’re engaged in this….

      Now, it would take a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United,
      and I think we should strive for that.”

    “President Biden Makes Federal Priority Of Vaccinating Educators,
    Childcare Workers,
    School Staff”
    “Dr. David Kessler, Chief Science Officer for the Biden Administration’s Covid response,
    talks with Rachel Maddow about the plans to expand vaccine access across the country, and the new Biden program targeting educators, childcare workers, and school staff, including bus drivers, to have all have at least one vaccine shot by the end of March.”

    JACKSON, Miss. —
    “Two painters’ buckets filled with dirty water sit near the front door of April Jackson’s apartment. A dead mosquito floats in one. She plans to use the water to fill her toilets later. Like many residents here, she has been without water nearly two weeks after an ice storm rendered the capital city’s main water plant nearly inoperable.
    The problem has been decades in the making. Without federal help to update the city’s almost 100-year-old infrastructure, officials say it will happen again.”

    “Bhangra dancing to Celtic music in the Yukon wilderness is the mash-up we didn’t know we needed”

    Mr. Pandher of Yukon was featured last night on Maddow in celebration of President Biden’s announcement that there’ll be enough vaccine for every adult by the end of May!! We saw happy videos of him dancing bhangra with Canadian naval and law enforcement officers.

    “Trump Just Got Served With Civil Rights Lawsuit At Mar-a-Lago”
    “Trump was served at Mar-a-Lago with a lawsuit by the NAACP and Rep. Bennie Thompson for violating civil rights during the Capitol attack.”

    “The suit alleges that Trump, Rudy Giuliani, The Proud Boys, and The Oathkeeps all violated the 1871 Klan Act which allows members of Congress to sue individuals who conspire to violently “molest, interrupt, hinder, or impede” the discharge of a public official’s duties. The suit accusing Trump of issuing a call to arms with his remarks on January 6, 2021, and inciting the Capitol attack.

    … it is apparent that the Trump administration actively blocked National Guard assistance during the attack.”
