    Constance
    in answer from your question last thread

    the lady in the pink suit was Krysten Sinema

    • Constance says:

      Thanks! She is a Dem but she thinks for herself it seems. I liked the old Dems and maybe she is like them.

      • taw46 says:

        I put a remark on the last thread. I, too, noticed that she stood up, and good for her. But she is also loony, go read about her.

        • Constance says:

          I’ll have time to read up tomorrow as we are expecting another snow disaster in Seattle and I don’t drive in the snow. Sinema probably is a nut but at least she isn’t a Stepford woman Congress person.

      Doesn’t matter, Nancy has already put her on two committees, the powerful House Financial Services Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

      Form comments from those who have seen it I imagine it to look like junior high report done the night before it is due with lots of clip art, fancy fonts, bubble text and color to try and hide the fact that it is little more than a “borrowed” powerpoint presentation reordered with some changes in wording to make it appear as if it is not plagiarized.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hey, if you were in charge of the Virginia Dems right now, cough, McAuliffe, cough, wouldn’t you pull out all your Legos right now? Heh, Terry’s fooked for 2020, these are his boyz. Oh yeah, painful to step on, but Virginia is still under Clintoon control.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Annnnnnnd, they just keep coming …..

    This is the first I’ve seen of this but its hilarious.
    Sorry if it’s been posted previously

    This was about a century before my time, but it survived til the 50’s when I was still a kid, I survived, yeah me !

      I went on a few of these rides, including the whip. I loved them.

      I was fascinated with the horses and I remember standing there watching them speed by, but I never had the nerve to get on. 🙂

      Or maybe I was too young to ride them. There might have been an age limit back then. I don’t recall.

      Those were the good old days.

    https://www.indiaabroad.com/indian-americans/saikat-chakrabarti-the-techie-behind-alexandria-ocasio-cortez/article_75240282-0187-11e9-a432-93f98a2205ce.html

    Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff to newly-elected New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been named among Politico’s “Power List,” of people to watch in 2019. The list, Politico says, “highlights politicians, activists and operatives across the country who are positioned to play a critical role in the political landscape leading up to 2020.”

    The Fort Worth Texas native and a Harvard graduate spent nearly eight years in Silicon Valley before shifting gears. Post Harvard, after a brief stint on Wall Street, Chakrabarti went to California, where he co-founded Mockingbird, a web design tool, and then built up the product team at the payment processor Stripe.

    But in 2015, he left the tech space and went to work for Bernie Sanders. After graduation, Chakrabarti wanted to start his own company, Politico says, but he was slowing getting disillusioned by the industry. “You have to decide to create the society you want to create,” he told Politico, “and that’s done through politics.”

    On his decision to join Sanders’ campaign, Chakrabarti told Rolling Stone that while he wasn’t “entirely sure he [Sanders] had all the right solutions,” he knew “he was talking about the right problems.” It was at Sander’s campaign that Chakrabarti met Alexandra Rojas and Corbin Trent. All three ended up on the campaign’s “Distributed Organizing Team.” Chakrabarti told Rolling Stone that the team’s responsibilities included “harnessing any and all of the volunteer energy that existed beyond the early primary states.” They traveled around the country canvassing and leading phone-banks.

    After Sander’s campaign, Chakrabarti, along with Rojas and Trent, cofounded the progressive political action committee Justice Democrats, and served as its executive director. Justice Democrats joined hands with Brand New Congress, also cofounded by Chakrabarti. Together, they aimed to recruit 400 candidates by asking people to nominate individuals from their own communities. According DC Beat, “party affiliation didn’t matter; candidates had to want health care for all, a living wage, and to want money not to rule all in politics.” They ended up with 12,000 applications, out of which 12 ran for primaries, and one won a seat in Congress: Ocasio-Cortez.

    Chakrabarti told Rolling Stone that caring too much about a win ratio is part of the reason he believes the Democratic Party would never have recruited Ocasio-Cortez. “We’re OK losing 90 percent of our races, if it means that the ones we win cause the kind of shift in thinking about what’s possible — like Alexandria’s race honestly did,” Chakrabarti told the magazine. “So that’s a different way of measuring success.”

    He has big policy dreams, like a “Green New Deal,” which, Politico says would tackle everything from mitigating climate change to transforming the American economy, and criminal justice reform. He wants to lay the groundwork now to make them realities. “Another thing to really do over the next two years is to basically show the American people what will be possible if the Democrats win the House, the Senate and the presidency in 2020, and that means putting our best foot forward,” Chakrabarti told Politico.“It means putting the most ambitious, the boldest, the biggest things we can, and then just build a movement around that.”

  16. taw46 says:

    You should go read Ace’s post on AOC:

    http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=379683

    “As I like to point out: Whenever Mexican or other countries’ territory was incorporated into the US, all persons living on that land were made US citizens automatically. The law said so. When the US annexed New Mexico, all those who had formerly been Mexican citizens in New Mexico immediately also became US citizens.
    It is not true that anyone was dispossessed of US citizenship who had been here.
    That’s why she speaks of “cultures” having been here, not people. Because all the actual people who were in the US at the time of incorporation did become US citizens. She wants to say that anyone who is racially Hispanic, even if they have never had a single point of contact with the US in not only their own history but their entire family’s history, is owed US citizenship on purely racial grounds.”

    REP. FUDGE’S DEM JUDGE PROTECTS HER FROM FRIEND OF WOMAN MURDERED BY HER PAL

    Beneath the streets of Cleveland there’s a sewer. Beneath that sewer is the runoff from the sewer. And beneath that sewer is Rep. Marcia Fudge.

    First, some context.

    On the way back from a funeral, Judge Lance Mason beat his wife so badly that he broke her orbital socket. A woman who called 911 had described a horrifying scene of “fists flying” inside the car.

    Their two children, ages 4 and 6, were in the SUV when their father assaulted their mother, choked her and bit her on the ear and the cheek. According to Aisha, Judge Mason “struck me in the face, yanked my hair, slammed my head into the dashboard and armrest of the car.”

    She later called the police, telling them, “I’m afraid he’s going to hurt my daughters.”

    Aisha had to be hospitalized and required reconstructive surgery to repair the damage to her face.

    When the cops came to arrest Judge Mason, they found semi-automatic rifles, 2,500 rounds of ammunition, a bulletproof vest and a sword.

    When Mason came up for trial, he allegedly had support from Rep. Marcia Fudge. Judge Mason got a slap on the wrist. He got out, got a job from his Dem pals, and then killed his ex-wife.

    The body of Aisha Fraser, a beloved teacher at Woodbury Elementary, and the mother of a daughter with Down syndrome, was found, stabbed to death, in the driveway of her home.

    Mason was reportedly caught trying to flee the scene. He struck a police officer with his car and rammed into the police car hard enough to disable both cars.

    The officer suffered injuries to his legs and ribs.

    Rep. Marcia Fudge came in for some criticism for the whole, “Supporting a Monster” thing. But don’t worry. The Dems have her back.

    A January confrontation between Rep. Marcia Fudge and the friend of a domestic violence victim whose abuser Fudge advocated for was shown in court on Wednesday as the congresswoman sought a restraining order against her accuser.

    Mary Ann Lorient approached Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, as she left an upscale banquet hall in Bedford Heights, a suburb of Cleveland.

    “We’re going to unseat you. You’re evil,” she said to Fudge. “As a black woman, to write that letter? At what point did you have empathy for her? At what point did you think about her? At what point?”

    Fudge says softly, “Don’t say anything.”

    The video shakes and the phone clatters to the ground as Lorient says, “Don’t hit me.”

    The existence of the video was reported by Cleveland.com following the hearing in which Fudge successfully sought a protection order against Lorient, whom she accuses of having followed her at several events. Lorient denies that accusation, and said she has only met the congresswoman once — at the January banquet.

    Lorient played the video for the judge, while Fudge said she was not aware that it existed, the site reported.

    The judge in the case has been endorsed by Fudge several times; Lorient’s request that the judge recuse herself from the case was rejected.

    • lateblum says:

      This story was practically a running joke with the news anchors on this morning’s local news. They couldn’t stop making fun of the scene and also said that his hiding b3hind the newspapers was just a ploy to garner more attention to him (and to his narcissism, I guess). They showed it repeatedly. I laughed.

    Liberalism’s PC Petards

    Looking at the possibility of losing the Virginia governorship to the Republicans, a few liberals are calling for adjustments to the PC penal code. The New York Daily News, normally unforgiving in its commitment to upholding the strictures of political correctness, ran an editorial entitled: “Facing facts: Blackface is awful, but is it always and immediately disqualifying from public office?”

      Only if it’s a Republican that does it.

    I think the dims have fallen into an awful trap of relying way too much on computer messaging. They don’t actually listen to real people. I talked to quite a few woman last night. Each one voted not for hillary. Were not Trumpsters they were simply not ever going to vote for that woman. I think its like driverless cars. Silicon Valley loves the idea, but do real people? I recognize there might one day be demand but actual people love their cars. Love the independence. If you ever get a chance Hands on a Hard Body is a wonderful documentary. It’s this Texas event in which the last person standing with their hands on a truck wins the truck..
    With regards to the critters in white we all know how cnn frames it, but what does a normal non political junkie think. A regular woman with a job. My take from talking to real live ladies is they are disgusted by pink pussy hats and constant male bashing. Seems to me the dims are ruled by online activists and d list celebrities. Very vocal but in my view not in any way indicative of reality. I am surprised Robby Mook has not committed Arkancide. They were so sure of their algorithms they did not see the forest for the trees. Donald was holding massive rallies in swing states. hills employed the brightest wunderkinds. Did no one look at Hillaryis44. Houston we have a problem when one of the most vociferous support sites has jumped ship. It was like they never bothered in all of 2016 to check the temperature. She lost PA by 50,000ish votes. An actual in state tiny effort would have obliterated that. They did next to nothing in my area. It’s a dim stronghold and she did win my county but Trump still put up a fight. He held rallies at the airport. How many of those attendees went out and voted. I assumed hills would take PA. She would have in any other election. He got 50,000 people off the sofa and to the polls. I would have crawled over broken glass to vote in 2016. I never felt that before. Yeah I voted for mittens but I didn’t wake up that day and race to cast a ballot. I did for Trump. I am amazed by how blind the dims have become. They are tone deaf. If I were running a campaign I’d go to a bar when the local news was on keep my mouth shut and listen.

    • mothy2017 says:

      Akin to running a campaign based on twatter are doctors relying solely on computer data for treatment. People defy the odds all the time. You actually need to talk to a patient.

      • mcnorman says:

        Yes, docs are relying on computer data for treatment. I had someone call me and tell me how the symptoms she was suffering could not be authorized for a specialist visit because the nurse practitioner was new and didn’t know the “key” codes. This person’s issues are covered by Medicare but must have an authorization from a primary. Guess what, they were denied a specialist based on what the PA was imputing via “key” words. I’m so disgusted. This is a great way to force people to keep people from being treated aka saving money.

    I need some creative input.
    My sister is coming back to stay. Calling it quits with hubby. I guess stage 4 is not as much fun as everyone says. Does not lead to marital bliss. I can’t take her sitting on the corner of the sofa all day everyday she can’t drive because they frown on people who had brain tumors operating large metal things capable of high speeds. She gets 300 a month disability so her ass is broke. I guess its so low because she’s still married and they take a chunk for insurance. Her rat bastard husband gives her no cash, but lets her charge whatever she wants at Sam’s Club. He’s a real gem.
    I can’t permit such resignation to life around my baby ( she is her grandmother) No way no how. I have fought with everything I have to make sure my crud is proactive with regards to adversity. A lump in the corner is not conducive to grabbing the bull by the horns. I have to talk with my sister about doing something. Anything. Seriously go to bingo every night. Booze it up. Volunteer. She is on keytruda. Its not your grandmother’s chemo. I guess she will always have cancer but this drug keeps it dormant. 60,000 a pop. She might live for another 30 years. I would totally understand if she wanted, needed to just sulk if she were not exposing it to the brat. I will give her carte blanche. Money is not an issue. She never needs to pay for anything. I cannot have her sending the brat this defeatist attitude. I thought about getting her a dog. Thing is Bella is one damaged pup. So needy and jealous. I look out for her. She’d be epileptic if a puupy was brought into the house and everyone doted on a wee one.
    So I have to talk to my sister. She needs to get up and participate in life. I have to be careful. Her husband cast her aside. She has no career. I would do anything I could for her. I go to cancer once a month with her. I call it cancer. The treatments take all day. She was flying up from Florida for treatment.
    She is okay. Death is not pounding on the door. Fucking live. What do I say. She is my sister. We are 11 months apart. I refuse to allow my monsters home to become macabre. Child is only 12 she deserves vibrant passionate people in her home. Home is a respite. It should never be a dark place.
    It’s so much fun because my sister is baby girl’s dads mom. Gee I spent almost a decade and more than a tiny sum fighting him in court. He lost every single time but he thought he could exhaust me with legal fees. It cost him nothing to file and refile. Over and over and over again. Finally after almost a decade a judge ordered the MMPI ( might have a letter wrong). So absurd that it took so long. I was not tearing a child away from a struggling parent. I knew he was that bad. The number of times he was in jail when we had court dates is incomprehensible. He’d get out file again. Years and years. He knocked out his girlfriend’s front teeth. I had to pay so much every time he filed. By year 8 the court ordered me to get her a cell phone. He could see his daughter once a week in a public place my parents ( her great grandparents) had to be within a 20 minute radius. Of course he beat her. Captured on mall security. Punched a child in the face because she voiced an opinion. That was not the end. He filed again. I was never giving up. She’s not my kid but I was called to battle and surrender was not an option. Almost ten years of this charade a family court judge ordered psych tests. He is only allowed to see his daughter in a therapists office. He is that bad. I knew it in 2006 I gave up my life in NYC to live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. She was going to face hell on Earth if someone didn’t step in.
    I am no champion of gays raising kids. I don’t think the pup and I have shit to do with the political cause du jour. I picked her up by chance at an evil welfare day care center. I had met her twice. The place smelled like shit. Real shit. Playpens dozens lin

    Dozens lined up. Neglect. She was months old. No one cared about her. She. Had these fat arms and big brown eyes. Her person clung to me with desperation. She never went back. Today my kid who is not my kid goes to math competitions at Carnegie Mellon. I have given her an almost prep school education. Black belt, French, archery, swim, ballet, volleyball, softball, acting. I buy the museum membership stuff so my kid never misses a thing. She is 12 we have watched hockey games with a guy named Lemiuex. Shaypup has produced local news. I met this black woman outside of a Salvation Army rehab where I was teaching adults to read. She was walking her dogs. We gaabbed. I knew nothing about her. We both volunteer walking dogs. She runs local news station. Invited my kid who is not my kid in to produce a show. That is worth chanting USA USA. I am a 52 year old f a ggot. I had numerous open heart shit. Breathed out of a hole in my throat. I had an outhouse. No phone no tv. I would walk on my clothes while I showered and then iron them dry to go to school. I had blinding migraines and would listen to the carpenter ants eat the walls of my mold infested house. We ate jelly bread for dinner. I was always hungry. My mom was a rock star. We had a tv it just did not work. She made us make up stories together in front of the non working tv. My mom quit high school at 15. Tenth grade. She was knocked up. Had six kids. She finished first on her nursing boards the same year I graduated from high school. She had a two year degree but became an executive. USA USA. You can dream here and dream outload. I love my country. We would eat a can of gravy with about one hamburger on egg noodles. We had spaghetti almost every night. My oldest brother is a VP for a box store. Steven just got a promotion that involves national policies on steel. Dan got a 2 year degree from a trade school doing CAD. He is the youngest. He is so good at his job. Flies all over the world. He now owns a company. Not one of my parents children, save my sister and her husband is well off, earns less than six figures. I used to get off the bus and walk for blocks because I feared people seeing my house. We couldn’t afford toilet paper. A bucket using newspaper. We read all the time.
    Good grief what do I say to my sister?
