    Good plan, Mr. President. Feeling worn out from trying to get the Senate to pass voter and election protection legislation before they left town on recess. Sigh. It doesn’t help that we have another heat dome brewing.

    Twenty years and two trillion to ‘train’ Afghan army which collapsed in two weeks.

    New Zealand borders to remain closed for rest of the year.

    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said that that the country’s borders will remain closed until at least the end of the year.

    She said an elimination strategy was the best way to keep Covid-19 out and the economy open.

    Ms Ardern stressed that the priority was vaccinating the whole population by the end of 2021.

    New Zealand is seen as one of the most successful countries in the world in controlling the coronavirus pandemic.

    The country has recorded just 26 deaths in a population of just under five million people.

    Next time at a meeting where anti-maskers are being idiots, like the parents who showed threatening those who are advocating masks in schools … they should be asked to prove their stance by spending a month inside hospitals in the Covid wards.

        I got my entire team and their families vaxed twice already and all are safe months back. Not one fell sick so far. Set the example by getting jabbed along with the family first, when the first vax roll out was made in India way back in March.

        I told them, jab or job, your choice. They all fell in line. They realised my ruthlessness paid off when thousands died in horrible 2nd wave everyday.

    “We know that you cannot get voting rights done without getting rid of the filibuster.”

    Senator Van Hollen:
    “Well Mehdi, that’s right. We have to change the rule.
    It’s an anti-democratic small D rule.
    It’s an invention of the Senate.
    And if the Senate can change its rules to allow budget bills to pass by a majority vote,
    certainly, we should be able to change the rules to allow a majority vote to protect our democracy.”

    State Rep. Gina Hinojosa, (D) TX to Joy Reid:

    “And we’re all awake now to how fragile this democracy is.
    After January 6th when they could not take control of our government by brute physical force,
    they are now going state by state to accomplish what they did not there.
    They are trying to hold on to power at all costs. They are trying to silence the will of the majority of voters.
    And that’s why we stood up,
    walked out to stop.
    We stood up, walked out to protect the freedom to vote.
    And now for a month, we’ve been in D.C. urging Congress, urging the President to prioritize this issue
    and to pass federal voting rights legislation before it’s too late.
    We can only hold the line so long in Texas.
    We’re the minority party. And we need Congress to act now.”

    Opinion: Pro-life Republicans Are on a Crusade to Kill Children

    “Unlike the original variant, Delta is infecting children at an alarming rate.
    In the past week alone, there has been an 84 percent increase in the number of children contracting COVID-19. That kind of increase should incite leaders to mandate mitigation efforts if for no other reason than to protect children who have little control over their ignorant parents who believe there is no cause for alarm.

    It is a terrifying statistic anytime,
    but as states are rushing to open schools without precautions in place to mitigate the spread of the highly infectious variant, it is a recipe for disaster that should have parents in a panic. Predictably, some so-called “pro-life” Republican leaders seem thrilled to hasten the number of children infected and are taking extreme measures to see their handiwork reach fruition.

    Most of the reporting regarding the spread of the delta variant has centered on the grim reaper posing as
    Florida’s governor, but Texas Governor Gregg (pro-life) Abbott is keeping pace. He certainly won’t stand up to anti-vaxxers and anti-mask advocates to protect Texas children.”

    (https://www.politicususa.com/2021/08/12/opinion-pro-life-republicans-are-on-a-crusade-to-kill-children.html)

    = Anyone, anyone around children must be vaccinated.
    = VACCINATE or take responsibility for the sickness and death of unvaccinated young children.

      Agreed! NPR had someone on saying how horrible it was for the U.S to leave. He didn’t want to focus on the past, just the future of Afghanistan. What about the future of the men and women fighting over there? He kept saying we should bring stability to the country. If you can’t bring stability in 20 years it ain’t gonna happen, get out and bring all those Afghanistan people who helped to the U.S. You would think other country’s would learn, Americans are into making money.

    In Final Moments Of 15 Hour Filibuster, TX State Sen. Carol Alvarado’s Quotes LBJ On Right To Vote
    “Texas state Senator Carol Alvarado filibustered for 15 hours in an attempt to prevent a GOP-led restrictive voting bill from passing the chamber.”

    Carol Alvarado to Rachel Maddow:
    “What’s important to not is that Texas Democrats aren’t taking this lying down.
    There’s a line that we live by ‘Don’t mess with Texas’. And I say don’t mess with Texas Democrats. Just because we don’t have the numbers doesn’t mean that we have to roll over and let them do whatever they want. This filibuster was meant to put the breaks on this, and to shine a national spotlight.
    And it worked.”

  93. August 13, 2021 at 12:48 pm

    Joy Reid speaks to LaTosha Brown, co-founder Black Voters Matter Fund:
    “How can D.C democrats affirm the sacrifice and the commitment.
    What should they be doing to match the commitment that we’re seeing out of Texas in your view?”

    Brown:
    “I do want to acknowledge and lift up the Texas Democrats.
    I mean that is the kind of representation we need.
    That they would literally…they left their families for over a month, their jobs, their places.
    And so I think that we need to really recognize the sacrifice that they’re making.
    Because they understand what is really at stake.
    …We have to have federal legislation.
    There should not be a recess.
    We’re talking about the …under attack right now.
    And so we need to see the Senate Democrats PASS right now, using their power.
    That means breaking the filibuster.
    To literally pass legislation that will protect the right to vote…the Republicans are holding democracy hostage.
    They’re doing it on 3 different levels.
    On level one they’re undermine the process on who has access to the ballot.
    They’re weaponizing the administrative process.
    And now….the redistricting process for 20 states…
    And so we have to recognize that democracy is being attacked from a party that refuses to create an agenda that would attract more Americans. So they’ve decided that they’re going to cheat instead.”
