April 21 Open Thread: Stable Genius Implicates Himself

Filed in National by on April 21, 2018 9 Comments

Very stable genius Donald Trump sort of admitted Michael Cohen has dirt on him this morning, tweeting that the New York Times would fail in its effort to get Cohen to flip on him. Of course, if he had nothing to hide, he has no reason to worry about Cohen flipping, a little detail the […]

Nervous Tom Carper Tries to Influence GOP Primary Voters

Filed in National by on April 20, 2018 4 Comments

Tom Carper apparently sent out a fundraising email attacking Rob Arlett, but why?

Senator Tom Carper is feeling some heat. He made the uncharacteristic move of acknowledging an opponent’s existence by attacking them. Moreover, instead of his primary opponent, he attacked Rob Arlett who is not even the favorite to win the GOP nomination.

That this is a fundraising email is a farce. Tom Carper doesn’t need the money so he is clearly trying to accomplish some other goals.

Rob Arlett alleges that Tom Carper sent out a fundraising email attacking Rob Arlett

WTF? Did any DL readers get a fundraising email from Carper attacking Rob Arlett? It doesn’t sound like Carper’s style to me and I’m having a hard time not thinking that Rob Arlett sent it to himself in order to have something to talk about on wingnut radio. “The last thing we need in the […]

Teachers in Arizona held a strike vote on Thursday that launched Arizona’s first-ever statewide walkout and turned down a proposed pay raise — instead demanding increased school funding. The Arizona Education Association […]

Kerri Harris – “I believe in the fight for fair wages. “

Kerri Harris – “I believe in the fight for fair wages. “

Kerri Harris can win this. If she does, it will likely be by running for a $15.00 minimum wage and for medicare for all – and not against Tom Carper.

Imagine working 40 hours a week, every week, and still not being able to feed your family, pay your rent or seek medical treatment when you need it.

For many Americans, no imagination is needed. This is their reality.

We have been told repeatedly that working hard is the pathway out of poverty. Clearly, this isn’t true. Millions of Americans go to work every day and still live below the poverty line because the federal minimum wage of $7.25 is too low.

The last time Congress voted to raise the minimum wage was over a decade ago. Since then, wages have stayed the same while the cost of living has continued to rise.

April 20 Open Thread: Who’s the Brains of This Operation?

Filed in National, Open Thread by on April 20, 2018 39 Comments

I’ve seen enough crime movies to know every criminal outfit has to have a guy nicknamed “The Brain.” The question is, who would possibly qualify for that sobriquet in Trumpworld? Certainly not the genius who thought it would be a great idea to release the Comey memos. It took all of one hour from the […]

1. Brandt Can’t. Won’t. Run.  The ‘name on the ballot’ who the R’s convinced to run for the House seat currently held by Lisa Blunt Rochester is a name on the ballot no more.  The, pardon the expression, aborted candidacy falls squarely on the shoulders of Mike Harrington, the out-of-his-depth Chair of the Delaware Republican […]

White Evangelicals Love the Fact that Trump F#cked a Porn Star

Trump’s approval among White Evangelical Christians is at an all time high. Probably because the group of people who still call themselves “White Evangelical Christians” has boiled down to a foul and sticky tar.

Bridenstine Confirmation Should Cause Every NASA Scientist to Resign

Quitting sucks. It is hard to give up money – but NASA scientists that stay on under this director are giving up much more than money. Now that the Senate has confirmed Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), a man with no scientific credentials, a man who doesn’t believe in climate change, a man uniquely unfit to […]
