    This. When I graduated from high school I worked for an insurance company for a few months before going to college. The woman who trained me was in her early twenties, we became friends. She told me she barely survived an abortion that she had in a motel room in Atlanta, GA. Apparently she had massive bleeding and ended up in the hospital. Everyone has these stories.

      While everyone is distracted with any number of shenanigans, they’re busy stacking the courts with all sorts of federalist/heritage foundation low-life, callous, white supremacist idiots..

  6. Hey, everyone!

    I’ve been out of pocket most of the day. Celebrating my oldest birthday. My brother made bbq brisket, ribs and sausage, potato salad and baked beans. We surprised him good.

    An unusual group on Air Force Two today: Vice President, Senate Majority Leader, and Chief Justice all on the plane. Rare to have that trio together, particularly on a flight. https://twitter.com/costareports/status/1128702163495137281?s=17

      Pfffft..

      Watch her and her team of ‘influencers’ turn around and desperately try to strong-arm and foist her onto a Biden led ticket if and when Biden gets the nomination.. ‘diversity’ ticket.. LOL..

      But Biden is an old hand at politics .. he already had her number long ago, which is why he met with Stacey Abrams …who won’t spend the entirety of the presidency undermining Biden – à la Hillary …who as SoS endlessly tried to undermine President Obama … turning Foggy Bottom into her very own queendom/parallel government, complete with openly hostile anti-Obama staffers many of whom publicly sniffed their disdain and some who even quit once Hillary left to go explore whether to challenge President Obama in his 2012 re-election bid …and in eerily mirror shades of (albeit to a slightly lesser degree) the treasonous buffoon, forcing folks to pick sides.. her or ‘Obama’.. and expecting folks to flatter and grovel to her.. tell her how much better than President Obama she was.. And if only she was president instead of him..

      At least Stacey has integrity and for what it’s worth, is thoughtful …and isn’t one to gratuitously spout off to make yet another mediocre, yawn-inducing pointless statement.. or score silly, hollow, focus group tested social media point …Or if and when on White House team, opportunistically stab the principal in the back …or try to undermine to hasten the principal’s departure so she can ascend to the presidency..

    So I’ve long had the sense that a lot of “farms” were tax dodges & raised crops/livestock just for show, if at all.

    Black voters, especially older Black voters, are as passionate about the Obamas as “white working class” racist voters are passionate about Trump. That’s something the DC pundits, especially Black pundits, with the exception of @TheRevAl, have never understood. https://twitter.com/Fedup_Mom/status/1128047550701895687?s=17

    Betsy DeVos is the worst Secretary of Education we’ve seen. Instead of championing our students, she protects for-profit colleges that break the law. So I’m making a pledge: In a Warren administration, the Secretary of Education will be a former public school teacher. https://t.co/fz4uiMQa7N https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1128297396868452354?s=17

    I asked Steve Scalise — twice — whether he’s advised Trump or will acknowledge that China does *not*, in fact, pay tariffs to the US, as Trump’s repeatedly insisted. (American companies/consumers pay).

    Scalise dodged the question… and spoke about Trump’s support for farmers. https://twitter.com/PeterAlexander/status/1128293084461191169?s=17

    @OjPats4 I think folks are pissed cuz right now they think Black voters are giving Biden a pass cuz of Obama & they are. However, Black voters have always been pragmatic. They believe Joe can win. Until someone convinces them otherwise, they are going to roll with him. https://twitter.com/lyn_cade/status/1128001756384976896?s=17

    They’re looking to cultivate her.. they’ve figured that she has no relationship with the Obamas and they’re trying to rope her in for their insidious purposes …hope she realizes that their only ‘interest’ in her is as useful idiot .. to be quickly disposed of once they’ve gotten what they want out of the dubious ‘association’..
