you guys need to listen to this.

i know some where in here i posted something and so did someone else. This is just plain evil. This is the kind of stuff that can have a sane person attempt to do something crazy to one of these politicians. You should never keep messing with people like this. Eventually someone will crack and all hell can break lose from both sides. Which is something non of us want because that would mean we are no different than some of these countries with horrible political systems. where you have people that like one side literally trying to harm the person representing the other side and vice versa. This is how that kind of stuff happens when you have a particular side trying to change the rules even after the people have voted you out.

even if you take the crazy out. These people in Wisconsin need to be pulling up to These politicians neighborhoods and just camping out and having a Foot like tail gate every single night. let the police come every...single...night to disperse the crowd. make them super uncomfortable. start following them when they go out with their spouses and their children. just shadowing them everywhere protesting loudly.


This is the stuff that puts me in the no comment zone because it is already too hard not to feel like
John Rambo here

This is VILE same letters as EVIL

Maybe these boys need their coaches and Mothers to protest them and remind them about
Sharing
Sportsmanship
DEMOCRACY

You are correct that citizens should never stop harassing these criminals
Never
Run them out of the state not just the capitol

Almost 1.5 million citizens voted for the winner. How are these actions not violent?
To take away all of those citizens hard work and emotions?

First thing Democrats should do is immediately sue the Republican party of Wisconsin for every cent
That was spent on election campaigns

Won't allow the Democrats to actual receive their rightful
Positions of power then you repay them for their campaigns immediately

This is the type of thing you might expect to read about in a third world country
Not America!

This is all trickle down (bleep)

Well....

* She ran a pedophile ring out of a pizza joint
* She's a satan worshiper
* Benghazi
* Her charity is a money laundering operation
* Benghazi
* She ran her entire operation through a secret, private email server
* The email server leaked classified information to our enemies
* When the emails were subpoenaed, she bleached them, eliminating 30,000 of them
* Benghazi
* She approved a shady uranium deal
* Benghazi

....at least, that's what I gather.

She and her husband have had several people murdered including Seth Rich and Vince Foster.

Ocasio-Cortez is next in line, but I think she's a distraction.

Medicare for all is even better than you think:

https://jacobinmag.com/2018/12/medicare-for-all-study-peri-sanders

Highlights:

New study show Sanders plan will actually save $5.1 trillion while covering every American.

“The most important thing to remember when discussing taxes and Medicare for All is that the new taxes are not an additional net cost or spending burden. Rather, they will amount to a mere fraction of what Americans currently spend on premiums, co-pays, and deductibles, which will all be eliminated.”

What about insurance industry workers? The Sanders bill provides a broad promise to guarantee assistance to displaced workers. The PERI bill elaborates on this promise with three concrete proposals: pension fund guarantees for all impacted workers; support for near-retirement workers, including 100 percent wage replacement for multiple years; and support for displaced workers, including job training and relocation support and total wage replacement for one year.

It’s worse than that. This all started in the late 70’s with Newt Gingrich. In 1978, Newt Gingrich gave a speech where he said, “the next generation of Republicans would have to learn to “raise hell,” to stop being so “nice,” to realize that politics was, above all, a cutthroat “war for power”—and to start acting like it.”

In the 80’s, he wrote this: “Language: A Key Mechanism of Control,'' comes a letter from Mr. Gingrich himself. Its message to candidates: Step up invective. Use words like these to describe opponents. These words work”. What words was he talking about to describe Democrats? ''Sick.'' ''Traitors.'' ''Bizarre.'' ''Self-serving.'' ''Shallow.'' ''Corrupt.'' ''Pathetic.'' ''Shame.''

Republicans have been heading down this road for a LONG time. Gingrich may have been the original architect, but the beast he created is now loose and threatens to destroy our democracy. By the way, he is super proud of the “revolution” he created. He thinks this is how western civilization stays alive.

Great reporting. I've only read the article and must brew a pot to begin reading the study. I like that article is says:

Quote:
The findings are impressively thorough. Reaching nearly two hundred pages in length, the report has been praised by health policy experts for its sound methods and clarity. Alison Galvani of the Yale School of Public Health predicts it will become recognized as the “seminal analysis” of Medicare for All.


We now need some peer reviews and analysis of the study.

^ some seem to think it's both sides of the aisle instead of the GOP being the problem
actually there are people on both sides of the aisle that need to get out of politics. now i would agree it is 100% of all republican politicians that I KNOW. now there may be some good ones on the local levels i have never heard of. But from what i keep hearing/seeing. Republican politicians are immoral, unethical, racist scum. If you dont agree. I will say see exhibit A your honor: North Carolina nonsense thats going on now, See exhibit B, and C. Georgia race that recently ended, and Wisconsin nonsense thats going on now. These are just examples of the republican politician's playbook. But lets be clear, there are some so called "conservative dems" in some places that can kick rocks too. There also maybe a handful of shady liberal dems that are doing shady things as well. there's a lot of politicians we can't assume they are all in it for the right reasons. Especially when you're not white. you can see more of their flaws. Because their actions can and at times will negatively affect you and people that look like you more often.

They wont be displacing that many workers. unless they really do a bang up job of automation the moment this would be passed. otherwise the government will need approx the same amt of people to do the same amt of work that these people were doing for private companies. and then remember. you just insured everyone. Add more customers. therefore you need even more employees to cover the extra customers. what job loss?

Nancy Pelosi On North Carolina Election Fraud: We Can Refuse To Seat That Congressman

Any newly elected House member can object to the swearing-in of Republican Mark Harris amid his election scandal.




House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that election officials in North Carolina have a few options for responding to what appears to be an egregious case of election fraud in the state’s 9th Congressional District.

Members of Congress have an option, too: They can refuse to seat the current leader of the race, Republican Mark Harris.

“The House still retains the right to decide who is seated. That is one of the powers of the House of Representatives,” Pelosi told reporters. “Any member-elect can object to the seating and swearing-in of another member-elect. We’ll see how that goes.”

True. But i think she's a different beast. She's looking like a young non white sanders. Which means she could pull in the youth vote to an all time high. she could also pull in people that never vote due to not wanting to vote for the usual suspects. sure the GOP will have their hate hats on as usual. But who cares about cooks and nuts? I dont.

So you never know.
