I don't need to read this, because it is obvious to me. The only people who don't see it are Democrats who still think bipartisanship exists. It doesn't. Not only is there no more....
bipartisanship, but the GOP no longer even pretends to care about real governance. Steal Social Security & gut Medicare, reduce women to #HandmaidsTale citizens, fight so that children can consent to sex, birth & marriage, and ensure that anyone....

Share this w/ everyone.
1.“The Women’s Health Protection Act”: Should women have a right to have an abortion in America?
An actual expert in national security wonders "how could this happen," as if Donald Trump didn't broadcast his disregard for integrity, security & the oath he swore with every breath.
I mean, this is simply embarrassing. To even consider, for a moment, how ridiculous it is to think, "How could this happen?"
Really, @sarahdwire? You can't imagine how Donald Trump, a scumbag who demanded that his son-in-law get security clearance...
How can we stop the propaganda? How can we activate the mainstream media to stop both-sidesing everything, and tell the truth about the GOP and its lies, hypocrisy & malign intent?
We had a brief family conversation about politics at dinner last night, and my liberal daughter and her multi-color-haired boyfriend made some astonishing statements about the GOP that staggered me.
Parroting Republican bullshit about how some grandma that lives in...
Biden came into office with a plague, a traitor who tried to overthrow the government, a dismantled federal gov't, and a bunch of utter lunatics running the GOP, a 50-50 ties in the Senate & a massive deficit.
Passed the American Rescue Plan.
Fixed the vaccine rollout and gotten us to a post-COVID normalcy.
Passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill.
Passed a bipartisan CHIPS act to boost domestic semiconductor production, which is important both for economics and national security.
I drove home from my brothers last night around 10 pm. When I got home from this 30 min drive, it occurred to me that there were no bugs on my windshield.
I am 57 years old.
When I was a kid, a nighttime drive in August would result in a spectacular scum of dead bugs all over the windshield, the front bumper, the radiator grate. The front of the car would be COVERED in dead bugs.
A light on the back porch would result in swarms that were unreal.

On 7/8/20, the Yankees were 61-23.
If you go back to the start of '20, the Yankees have played 353 games. If you take those 84 games out, they are 137-132 in those games.
They are 12-25 since that great start, which we now know was an illusion.
For decades now, people have suggested that future wars will be fought over water. This is not likely for several reasons.
Water is distinctly difficult to move, like, say oil or gas.
However, water is very different from the two main liquids that we transport in that we need to move much more water than oil or gas. That's why the NY State Aqueduct project is so massive, with three 18-foot in diameter aqueducts running over 90 miles.
Judge’s 200th homer came in his 671st career game, behind just Philadelphia's Ryan Howard, who achieved the feat in 2009 in 658 games.
Interestingly, both of these guys came up as old.
Howard hit 2 HR as a rookie when he was 24.
Judge hit 4 HR as a rookie when he was 24.
Judge hit 52 the next year, setting the true rookie record. Ryan hit 58 in his 3rd year. Ryan holds the record for fastest to 100 and 200 HRs.
If you understand baseball, if you understand how athletes age, it is easy to see why Cashman is reluctant here.

I just saw an IG post about how Dwight Howard hurt his back at age 26, and how that changed the trajectory of his career.
Don Mattingly hurt his back in the offseason after his age 25 season, which was his 3rd full season in baseball. Here's what he did in those 3 years:
207, 211 & 238 hits, leading the league two of three times.
44, 48 & 53 doubles, leading the league all three seasons.
