    The most religious group in America, by all studies, is the Democratic base-Black women!;๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

    Evangelicals helped get Trump into the White House. Mayor Pete believes the religious left will get him out.

    “The Democratic Party has sometimes become distant from religion.”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

      Reminds me of this scene from “The Year of Living Dangerously” which was recently shown on TCM. A journalist (Mel Gibson) is walking through a Jakarta slum with a local camera man and they are talking about what can be done about the dire poverty. The camera man says, “I support the view that you just don’t think about the major issues. You do whatever you can about the misery that is right in front of you. You add your light to the sum of light.”

  3. You should see the tears in this thread. They can’t accept facts.

    Trump Fed pick was held in contempt for failing to pay ex-wife over $300,000
    Records obtained by Guardian show Stephen Moore reprimanded by judge for not paying alimony, child support and other debts

    Stephen Moore owes $75,000 in taxes, IRS alleges

    Don’t let these talking heads & comedians define any of the DEM candidates. NONE

    We need to do our own research, carefully. Don’t fall for the starry-eyed, glowing reports/coverage of SOME of the candidates, and the obvious and sometimes very subtle bashing of others.

    FYI, Pete B. ain’t shit. I’d take Joe Biden any day over this dude. Remember, Biden’s been around, tested, he was VP.

    Mayor Pete:

    Heโ€™d endorsed Hillary Clinton after her nomination in 2016, as any aspiring party leader must, but he clearly wonโ€™t be writing any laudatory essays about her campaign. โ€œI organized a Union Hall event for her in South Bend,โ€ he says, and shakes his head. โ€œYou could just tell the enthusiasm wasnโ€™t there.โ€ The problem, he says, was partly that the stakes seemed too low. โ€œWe need a bigger scope of ambition for people to rally around.โ€ A return to the Clinton and Obama style of centrist incrementalism, he says, will invite disaster just as surely in 2020.

    Oh, so, cancelled.

    Naw, Bill Maher, this ain’t IT.

  8. Ametia says:

    It’s not crystal clear to SOME white Dems that we don’t want racist, bigoted, ignorant white folks in our party. PERIOD

    And If you do, you belong with 45 & and his group of HEATHENS.

    I guess it’s necessary to state the obvious.

    I simply love her:
    .@staceyabrams: “I did not write a political memoir; I wrote a book about how I messed things up a lot and how I fixed it. Because I think when you’re told to be a leader there are very few people who give you the blueprint for how to do it.” @TheView

    โ€œDonald Trump got elected because, in his twisted way, he pointed out the huge troubles in our economy and our democracy,โ€ Buttigieg says. โ€œAt least he didnโ€™t go around saying that America was already great, like Hillary did.โ€ โ€” @PeteButtigiegโ€” The Washington Post Magazine (@wpmagazine) January 27, 2019

    Nah .@PeteButtigieg Trump was elected because of white supremacy.
    Throughout U.S. history, every time Black Americans progressed, there was a white recoil.
    Civil War/Reconstruction -> Jim Crow/White race riots
    Civil Rights Act/Voting Rights Act -> Nixon
    President Obama -> Trumpโ€” La Femme Negrita (@LaFemme_Negrita) March 30, 2019
