It is.  It truly is.

 

Look, I'm sure Mark Zuckerberg "means well."  However, at the end of the day, he just needs to 'fess up that FB's advertising policies have absolutely nothing to do with protecting free speech and absolutely everything to do with the financial bottom line.  Politicians and others are allowed to run whatever content they choose on FB, with absolutely no regard for the facts, because, to men like Zuckerberg, they're still paying customers, as are those who click on them and share them on their FB walls.

 

Les Moonves and Jeff Zucker could admit that, as bad as Trump was (and still is) for the nation, he was (and still is) good for their ratings.  So, why can't Zuckerberg?

 

Too many people, it seems, remain unwilling to admit that this is NOT "politics as usual;" that, in fact, the Trump administration represents an existential threat not just to our government but also to our entire way of life.  To put it another way, we haven't learn a damn thing from 2016; and unless we don't wise up NOW and FAST, come this time next year, we're gonna be as bad off as we are right now, and worse.

The Trump administration continues to take "L"s at the hands of the courts.

 

It seems like the courts -- that is, the courts that aren't willing to tow the Trump administration's line -- have been the only REAL safeguard we've had against these abominable people.

If Matt Gaetz doesn't know that Captain Kangaroo has nothing to do with a "kangaroo court" and vice-versa, I could hardly expect him or his idiotic cohorts to know who signed and enacted the rules regarding SCIF hearings and when.

In addition to AOC, Rep. Beatty also had a moment.  (So did Maxine Waters, who was the first to ask FB's Zuckerman directly about whether FB intended to check/correct misinformation).  Sadly only one of these instances got national coverage.  By the way, Justice Democrats (of which AOC is a member) wants Rep. Beatty to be 'primary-ed'.

Rep. Beatty hit the nail on the head: Zuckerberg DOES think this is a joke.  He thought he could skate through this like he skated through the last time he testified before Congress, when he was dealing mostly with old, white, self-entitled farts who don't know what a computer is, much less FB.  That, ladies and gentlemen, is the difference between a GOP-led branch of Congress and a Democrat-led one.

 

(I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Black women do not play.)

 

 

Did we even know this guy was running?

Honestly I thought he'd already dropped out. 

 

I don't even want to know why the purity types are trying to primary Rep Beatty.

I'm sure it's for something stupid like she was once spotted purchasing a bottle of Aunt Jemima syrup (when everyone knows that Mrs. Butterworth is more P.C.).

Unfortunately, Hilary was right. Looks like Tulsi is running third party thus confirming our suspicions. To think so many of these idiots running for president ran To defend her....

 

 

 

Also, press favorite Mayor Pete continues to baffle me

As much as I like Buttigieg, I have begun to question some of his stances.  And we DEFINITELY need to be ready for Tulsi.

 

That was so petty of him not to shake McConnell's hand.  I love it.

Wasn't there some controversy in this or the last election when a Dem candidate said Scalia was in the mold of a justice they'd appoint? I think some give these names to try to seem impartial, whether it makes sense or not.
