Poll

When I consider the polls, I think that

Kid is right and the majority of national polls understate Trump's strength.
- 2 (25%)
Kid is wrong; the majority of national polls have Biden's strength about right.
- 2 (25%)
the polls are irrelevant and therefore so is Kid.
- 4 (50%)

Did this girl know she was pregnant when she started the journey?

What happens to a pregnant 17 year old in Guatemala?

Da fuck do you care? You’ve been told time and again what’s going on in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

But here, i’ll supply a link for you to ignore or rationalize.

Achtung, y’all!

The only way to stop this headlong rush into authoritarianism is to vote in overwhelming numbers... especially white folks who swear they’re all about equality but feel they can vote or note vote their “conscious” and do so regardless the fallout on the communities of color under attack from the GOP.

Any person of color who in this day and time says voting doesn’t matter and actively discourages their peers from participating in the franchise is a tool of white supremacy.

A bit of clarification of the implications of the prior post.

Trump wonders if his supporters will "demand" that he serve three terms.

I sure hope he keeps focused on that third term.

He also thinks the NY Times committed treason for running a story that it looks like his administration okayed:
https://time.com/5607955/trump-new-york-times-russia-treason/?utm_medium=socialflowfb&xid=time_socialflow_facebook&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=time

And his military leaders are keeping details from him of their efforts to rein in Russia, for fear that either they will be told to stop or he will simply tell Putin about it.

Just another day in paradise.

Quote
"You present compelling evidence that we have a real problem. You present compelling evidence of inaction by the other branches of government. It may even rise to the level of criminal neglect," Hurwitz told the children's attorney in a Portland, Or. courtroom yesterday. "The tough question for me—and I suspect for my colleagues—is, do we get to act because of that?”

At the time Horwitz thought the plaintiffs had sued the government for failing to act to prevent climate change. But their attorney, Julia Olson, swiftly corrected him:


"I want to emphasize that this case is not a failure-to-act case," she said. "The threat here is intensely affirmative.”

In Juliana vs. United States, Olson contends the government has worsened climate change by promoting the fossil-fuel industry, by allowing oil and gas development on public lands, by sharing in the revenues, by working interdependently with polluters, by being "so involved in private activity that it's constitutionally liable."
