The Dire Danger of Biden's Acceptance of Can't-do-ist Response to $15 Minimum The truth is out that if Joe Biden wanted it to, the parliamentarian's rejection of the inclusion in the pandemic relief bill would be a minor bump on the road to passage. If he takes after Hillary and embraces can't-do-ism as an excuse for not doing what he could do, then the Democratic party is toast.

The "Can't Include $15 Minimum Wage" Lie that VP Harris Could Beat Now is the time to call Biden's BS and shout out loud for Harris to have the guts to appeal the Senate parliamentarian's $15 minimum wage decision. If WallStreetBets Redditors can take on the big hedge funds with their Game Stop plays, the people who believe in the $15 minimum wage should be able to put enough pressure on the Biden Administration to follow through on promises.

Did Twitter Save Trump from Impeachment Right after the January 6th uprising, Twitter shut down Donald Trump's Twitter account. I'm wondering if that rescued him from being impeached.

Movie Review: The Map of Tiny Perfect Things I love movies that touch my heart and bring tears to my eyes with touching scenes. The Map of Tiny Perfect Things delivers on both accounts.It's no accident it was released on Valentines day, since it's a sweet, touching romance story with an almost unique twist, and it expands on what may be the start of a new genre. It's a take-off on the classic movie, Groundhogs Day

Pay for Biden's $1.9 Trillion Relief Plan With Dynasty Taxes Republican word framers like Frank Luntz calls them "death taxes." I call them "Dynasty taxes"-- taxes on inheritances that prevent one ultra wealthy dynastic leader to continue his dynasty with future generations. Trump and Mitch McConnell put through a bill that cut those taxes substantially. I say that Joe Biden and the Democrats should take all of them back and then some, to pay for the package.

YOLO Not Just GameStop, Also Texas, MAGA and the GOP The explosion of interest in the rise and fall of GameStop stock, caused by the millions of Redditors on WallStreetBets, is based on YOLO philosophy. But YOLO is nothing new. I'm wondering about other examples of YOLO thinking, particularly in politics and leadership.

In Spite of GOP Senate Traitors, Trump Will Pay and The Senators Will This better not be over. Even though 43 traitorous, despicable Republican Senate cowards acquitted him, Trump is liable for criminal charges. Biden better allow the DOJ to go after him.

Warning to Republican Senators: Trump Will Die from 1000 Cuts. You Will Die With Him Here's a warning to Republican Senators considering impeachment. Trump is just beginning to die a thousand cuts. These cuts will be cuts on the reputations and legacies of the Republican Senators who, in the face of such strong evidence, betray democracy, betray justice and put the future of the United States at risk.

Trump Impeachment II Open Thread Jamie Raskin suggests that rather than the idea that a person can't shout "Fire" in a theater, it would be more like a fire chief sending people to the theater to set it on fire. He cites Justice Scalia, who said, "You can't ride with the cops and root for the robbers." What are your observations, your thoughts and opinions?

Biden Hands 2022 Elections to Republicans If He Goes for Unity Over Strong Middle Class Support what will Biden do, indulge his desire to unify by compromising with the ten Repubicans who have offered a plan with one third the money? I see that as bait the Republican leadership has proffered to lure Biden. If Biden goes for the bait he will be handing the 2022 elections to the Republicans. Now is not the time to go for unity. Now is the time to show that Democrats can be as strong as Republicans like Mitch McConnell.

GameStop Attack on Hedge Funds is Occupy Wall Street 2.0-- With Teeth Occupy Wall Street (OWS) 1.0 was an incredibly important phenomenon that irreversibly changed the world. Occupy Wall Street 2.0, with impact that will likely go into the hundreds of billions, will be even bigger. If you are a populist and you've been seeing the deep state, i.e., the biggest most powerful financial entities, corporations and billionaires as the enemy, as the threat to democracy, then OWS2.0 offers great hope

GameStop Bottom-up Revolution Roils Stock Market-- Big as Capitol Riots The Gamestop stock frenzy is a bottom-up revolution, a major phenomenon, perhaps as significant in average people assailing the powers that be, as the Capitol invasion. It's costing hedge funds billions. And it looks like it's leading to what could be criminal shutting down by stock trading brokerages of sales of the most shorted stocks-- which protects the at risk hedge funds and screws "retail" main street investors.
