    NV OTOH I used to be pretty sure about but lately they have been regressing. That's no bueno. Hopefully, Dem fiscally liberal policies will appeal to the huge population of restaurant and hospitality workers.

      I think Nevada is our Florida or maybe NC- always just out of reach for the GOP. Until the Reid machine disappears, I think we’re okay in Nevada. Plus, Cortez-Masto and Rosen both seem like strong fits for their state. I could be completely wrong about that. I also know they just had two white GOP guys for Governor and Senator recently, so there’s that too.

        The CBOs "analysis" of the minimum wage portion shows that the expected "losses" arent that bad and the CBO is ignoring a lot of the factors. Considering Trump got his tax cuts through with Reconciliation I see no reason this can't either.
        Joe Kernan on CNBC was having kittens interviewing a senator about this report this morning. Kept repeating "Only 900,000 people will get raised out of poverty! It will cost a million and a half jobs though! Is it worth it to lose that many jobs just to get less than a million people more money?"

        I d*mn near drove my truck into a traffic attenuator at speed while yelling at my radio. I've heard him carry water (in the Hovey/Sicatoka way of just asking questions) but this was the first time I've heard him gargle GOP talking points.

        My only question is, is the reported calculated loss of a million jobs including or ignoring the FIFTEEN MILLION currently unemployed for almost a goddammed year?!

          Iowa just needs to find someone under the age of 60 with some charisma to run if it's an open seat (if Grassley runs again, forget about it. He'll win with 60%+). I'm farking tired of Dems nominating boring old upper middle class white dudes that have all the charisma of an ear of corn. Having said that, so long as IA-4 tilts heavily red, it's going to be an uphill climb in any statewide race since the other 3 districts are purple at best.

            maybe you should run. It’ll definitely provide entertainment around here at least

              Fark no. Being a politician would be the 7th layer of hell for me. I enjoy my relative privacy as a member of the deep state. Besides, I rolled an 11 for charisma. You need at least a 16 to get elected to the US senate.

That is what Harrison needs to do...focus on keeping everyone engaged and in the fight. even if that means I need to still get 75k emails a week.

                  Objectivism, or the selfish, Randian crap that plenty believe.

                  And Nihilism, or nothing matters so why should people care?

                  The country lucked out in 2020 because Trump was such a unifying force for people against him so people cared. Same thing in 2018. 2022 I’m not so confident about.

                    Those are two of the three major philosophies on the internet. The third is white nationalism (Nazism).

                    But off the internet, in real life, there is a strong and engaged liberal strain in American politics that has delivered every improvement in the lives of Americans in the last 90 years while also building the middle class and wealth of the nation.

                    That is where it's at. Even my fellow Jacobin-reading democratic socialists can't compete with that. It just doesn't get a lot of headlines because its advocates aren't running around throwing rocks through windows or storming the Capital, they're doing the workaday things that a government does to help its citizens.

                    • dx,

                      It isnt that we think it is a Democrat year, it is that the year is going to be tougher for the GOP because of the map and the fact that places like AZ and GA are no longer locks for them. I think you overestimate how hard it will be for Warnock...I would be way more worried if Ossoff was up. And again if Abrams is the Dem nominee for Governor I think he will be fine because the same people that voted for him last time will vote again.

                      We won't know though until we know who is running and retiring. It is rather early for handwringing or getting overly excited. Think of what the world was like a year ago. It is looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time until next November. If the economy is going strong and COVID isn't a thing really they should do fine. If we are in a Recession and the Dems screw up every bill they have they are screwed. As of now though the "smart" money is on the Senate not flipping and likely the Dems probably gaining a seat or two. They are going to have to keep everyone engaged though. That is why the issues they are fighting for are the right ones right off the bat. I have said it a doozen times and will say it a million more...give the people what they want and then dare them to vote you out. If they do, then it was never going to matter anyways.

                                There is only one logical explanation: radiation from the Jewish Space Laser caused her to hallucinate and believe that these other men were, in fact, her husband. Therefore, it wasn't really cheating, and Jews are to blame.
