Open Thread | Why the November Elections Are So Important

Nothing less than democracy itself is on the ballot in November 2022.

Anyone who tells you differently is lying to you.

Anyone who tells you that you can ‘ skip this election’ is a bought and paid for chaos agent for Republicans. Periodt.

Anyone who tries to diminish the accomplishments of President Biden and his Administration is a chaos agent for Republicans. Periodt.

Open Thread | It’s all unraveling in Uvalde

They are not used to being held accountable. They don’t even know what accountability means. They are used to bullying a largely low income Latino population. They are used to running roughshod over them. They thought their bullshyt lies and excuses about what happened that day were going to fly. Now that folks are continuing to question them, they are getting defensive and belligerent.

I can’t get past that ‘ official ‘ standing there, telling folks that the reason the cops didn’t go in was ‘ because they could have been shot.’

COULD.HAVE.BEEN.SHOT.

THAT IS LITERALLY IN THE DESCRIPTION FOR POLICE OFFICER.

It’s part of the job. It’s the risk of the job.

This department, which takes up 40% of the city’s budget, is full of people who don’t think that IT’S IN THEIR JOB TO RISK THEIR LIVES FOR THOSE WHO PAY THEIR SALARIES?

DA PHUQ?

They sit there with good government jobs with benefits that they would be unable to get anywhere else, and then, are incompetent at those jobs.

Open Thread | Tired of the Everyone Expecting So Much of Democrats, and Not Holding Republicans to be Responsible for ANYTHING

I agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly.

Democracy is LITERALLY on the Ballot in November 2022.

Why isn’t THAT enough of a motivator?

Anyone saying this is doing nothing but attempting to VOTER SUPPRESS.

And, they come, just like clockwork, right before elections. Sowing the seeds, when they are quiet as phuck as soon as the election is over.

Open Thread | These Student Loan Forgiveness Folks Are Wearing on the Nerves

First, President Biden, when running for President….

NEVER RAN ON THE PROMISE OF COMPLETE STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS.

His education plan included other things..but COMPLETE STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS WAS NOT ONE OF THEM.

THAT was from Bernie and Warren – you know, the candidates WHO LOST.

So, for those whining about complete forgiveness, why don’t you stay on Bernie and Warren about SPONSORING THE BILL THAT NEEDS TO PASS TO GET TO PRESIDENT BIDEN’S DESK FOR HIM TO SIGN.

So, President is means testing student loan forgiveness.
Make under $150,000, and you get $10,000 in forgiveness.

Here come the whiners about why Ten Thousand Dollars is ‘ nothing’.
Nothing?

Let’s look at the stats.

$10,000 would wipe out the complete student loan balance for 33% of all student loan borrowers.
It would wipe out 50% of the balance for the next 20% of borrowers.

So, $10,000 would help wipe out completely or up to half of the student loan debt for 53% of all student loan borrowers.

Up to $40,000 in student loan debt, is the next 20% of student loan borrowers. So, in the $20 – 40k of student loan debt, the President would be wiping out 49 down to 25% of their student loan debt. We are now up to over 70% of all student loan borrowers.

As far as the means test, the President is using almost triple the mean salary of the United States for you to qualify.

The Student Loan Forgiveness crowd is showing their entire azzes.

The complete and utter arrogance of threatening to withhold your vote if President Biden doesn’t forgive all your student loans…that level of selfishness.

Because, they are.
