More Black Women Are Realizing That the Democratic Party Is Full of Shit, New Poll Finds

Not my headline, although I wish I wrote it. The Democratic Party has experienced an 11 percent drop in support from black women, that’s headline worthy. But it isn’t just black women. The country is waking up to the fact that the DLC-Clintonomics-Banks First-Democratic Party, is full of shit. How else can you explain people voting for dotard carnival barker, Donald J Trump?

Sadly this article strays into the reductive nonsense that frames any conflict within the Democratic Party as a conflict between “white working class” and the non-white – when in fact the factions are the John Carney, Tom Carper, Chris Coons, Clintonite 1%ers versus (literally) everyone else.

Nevertheless less, it is refreshing to see another interest group becoming aware off the fact that the Democratic Party isn’t safeguarding their interests.

Kowalko’s Open Letter to Markell

Dear Jack, I’ve just finished reading your N.Y. Times op-ed and I feel it’s my obligation to Delaware’s taxpayers to respond. I’d like to think that your most recent missive has merely added to my disappointment in you but I think I’ve already passed the minimum expectations level in regard to your performance and legacy.

A Democratic Party Sick with Dread and Exhausted

A Democratic Party Sick with Dread and Exhausted

Every morning we are greeted with more evidence that Trump is literally horrible. This morning we have more evidence that he is sticking with the Sean Hannity, cartoon version of the Iranian nuclear arms deal, and appears to be determined to undermine the agreement worked out between Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany and Iran. He is determined to go to war with somebody, and soon.

But what is perhaps worse is how there is no congressional opposition to this belligerent child-man in the White House. The Republicans appear ready to pass the latest “health care” monstrosity, and the Democrats are worse than useless.

There continues to be no coherent response from Democrats to the daily assaults on our Democratic norms. There is only meekly hopping that the Mueller investigation …finds “something.” Trump and his inner circle of cronies and outer circle of GOP sycophants must be thinking “So what if it does find something? Democrats will never force the issue.”

And they are right to think that the Democrats have no response. No leadership, no guiding principles and no sway over public opinion. The Democrats have cede their oppositional authority to late night comedians.

Preamble to the United Nations Charter

The illiterate, ignorant, reckless child in charge of America went the United Nations today to make a speech. Among other things he threatened to kill every human being in North Korea, in the interest of putting “America First.” It is a safe bet that he doesn’t know why the United Nations exists.

Fuck it.  Let’s Give Amazon Everything

We’ve all joked: A Senate seat, no taxes for 1,000 years, ability to shit out of open windows onto the street, etc. But, if we were seriously going for this, what would a successful package really look like? What does Amazon really want in a Corporate home? Being a tech giant constantly fighting for top […]

Support Delaware United’s Medicaid Buy-In Program Petition

The time is coming where we have to make a choice: Is healthcare a human right, or is it a privilege. If we decide it is a human right, then we must make it so everyone is covered at an affordable rate, for both the consumer and the insurers. Will that include multiple changes in […]

Hillary Clinton’s Fake Ass Book

On the list of things I don’t need, Clinton’s cloying homage to herself it #1. Cancer is #2.

“I’ve tried to adjust. After hearing repeatedly that some people didn’t like my voice, I enlisted the help of a linguistic expert.”

If you don’t know what is wrong with that… what is REALLY wrong, at the heart of it, then you should not be involved in politics.

Global Warming’s Shameless Mother F#ckers

The thing that is missing from every story about Hurricane Irma is the fact…FACT that the destructive power of this storm is directly related to global warming. Instead of any honest reporting on the topic we get men is rain gear endlessly anticipating some juicy shots of destruction, and an administration that simply denies reality.

The stunning Democratic shift on single-payer

The stunning Democratic shift on single-payer

Many thanks to the wild-eyed radical Senator from Vermont for dragging the Democratic Party into a winnable position.

In 2008, no leading Democratic presidential candidate backed single-payer. In 2020, all of them might.

For a bill that does not exist yet and whose details are not public, Bernie Sanders’s new single-payer health care bill sure is popular. First, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced her plans to co-sponsor it; then Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) joined in. According to reporting by my Vox colleague Jeff Stein, Cory Booker (D-NJ) has staff working with Sanders and others on formulating the bill.

Warren, Sanders, Harris, and Booker are arguably the most famous and most-admired Democratic senators in the country among the party’s base; the betting markets give a 55 percent chance that one of them will be the 2020 nominee for president.

Other contenders are getting on board with single-payer — or “Medicare for all,” where the federal government would provide health insurance for every American financed through taxes — as well. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) declared, “We should have Medicare for all,” at a rally against Republican attempts to roll back Obamacare. Meanwhile 117 House Democrats (over 60 percent of the caucus) have co-sponsored HR 676, the Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act offered every Congress by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).

This is what an emerging party consensus looks like. Over time, some issues become so widely accepted within a party as to be a de facto requirement for anyone aspiring to lead it. No Democrat would run for president, or even for House or Senate minority leader, without supporting the DREAM Act. No Republican would try for a leadership position without supporting repeal of the estate tax.

Trump’s Secret Plan to Save DACA

Trump’s Secret Plan to Save DACA

Can this shit show get more ridiculous? Trump’s lawless AG and magical elf Jeff Sessions, says it is all about following the law (as Joe Arpaio nods in the backround), and having Congress “act” (like that is going to happen.) Then the Republican President folds on that plan and says that he’ll fix it in six months when Congress inevitably fails. WHAT THE HOLY FUCK?

Free Market Idiocy on Steroids

Free Market Idiocy on Steroids

If every dollar of tax revenue collected from a successful business corresponds to a dollar decrease in potential economic growth, (and conservative “thinkers” tell us there is a direct correlation while reality tells us no such relationship exists), then the looming explosion in health insurance premiums that will ripple out of the destruction of the ACA should really hit the economy hard.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it will cut 90 percent of its budget for advertising Obamacare’s open enrollment period and will nearly cut in half the funding for hundreds of navigator groups across the country who provide in-person assistance to people signing up for health insurance.

Former HHS officials and health care experts predict the sharply scaled-back outreach effort will significantly depress insurance signups this fall, especially among the young and healthy, causing premiums to skyrocket.

“The people who are sick will navigate any obstacle in order to obtain insurance,” Josh Peck, the former chief marketing officer for HHS, told TPM. “They don’t need a reminder because their illness is their reminder every day. But healthy people need and respond to reminders, so this clearly will have a negative impact on the risk pool.”

A bit of bloggy nostalgia

A bit of bloggy nostalgia

In 2001 and 2002, I was reading and commenting on Dana Garret’s blog and Mike Mathews. There was also someone …Delacrat? who had a great wit, but didn’t stick with it. I was also trolling some Republicans pretty hard. Hube mostly. Like everyone I was shocked and outraged about how terrible George W. Bush was. About how he wanted to invade Iraq on a transparently flimsy pretext and with no plan for the occupation. (Little did I know that the GOP had not yet begun to scrape the bottom of the barrel.)

Anyway, my arms were to short to box with GWB, so I decide to keep an eye on Mike Castle who I discovered to be a straight down the line “Yes Man” for Bush in spite of his PR campaign to the contrary. I tricked Liberalgeek into coming aboard, then Pandora and Cassandra, Nemski, Donviti. El Somnambulo was a goldmine of a commenter for a long while before he came on board. Delaware Dem started “Daily Delaware” but decided to come over after a while. Those years were fun. Then Hillary Clinton came along and ruined America with her shit ass campaign. I think that’s how it went down.

This short piece in technically Delaware reminded me of all of that. Read Steve Newton’s post on outing. That’s one for the time capsule.

Open Thread August 31st

Trump said Wednesday that “talking is not the answer” when it comes to reining in North Korea — his top Cabinet members instantly contradicted him. The guy is nuts. Off his rocker. People around him who are denying it are now involved in a criminal cover up.

So Much talk about Denn this week. How are these elected’s down ticket Dems doing: Mat Meyer, BHL, LBR, Trinidad Navarro.

Me, (Jason330) I’m always buying stock in Bethany Hall Long. Not because she is crushing it, but because people like her. That is currency in politics and it is something that the Hillary supporters STILL don’t seem to understand.

Houston is drowning—In its freedom from regulations

I visited Houston once, and I remember being struck by how the riot of signage and absence of land use conventions like setbacks showed a clear contempt for “regulations”.   I had no idea that the contempt extended to on outright rejection of modern storm water management practices.  I suppose if you asked the Houston Chamber of Commerce why it was so important allow impervious cover everywhere, they’d have some good reasons like…”Jobs” or “Freedom”.

Read it here: And notice how rich people always manage to restrict “freedom” enough so that their areas aren’t free market shitholes.

The best reporting on this week’s natural disaster is from The Onion. HOUSTON—Appearing shellshocked as they took in the scenes of devastation around them, Houston residents reportedly emerged from their homes Monday to survey the damage caused by 200 years of rampant, worldwide industrialization. “Oh my God. Everything’s destroyed, everywhere you look,” said visibly stunned […]

Here is Politico on the Trump/McConnell feud everyone is talking about.

So much crazy bullshit from the F#cking Idiot’s speech in phoenix last night, that some real nuggets of idiocy slip through without comment. Trump listed what he sees as accomplishments during his first seven months, including nominating a new Supreme Court justice and 31 federal judges. “We’ve ended the war on beautiful, clean coal, and […]
