Swinging back around to Trump yelling at Google, he... umm... might not want to do that...

I assume you include yourself in the last sentence as well since there is zero percent chance you were ever someone who had to be scared into voting Lefty. In fact, as much as it scares me, from what I have gleaned over the years you and I are similar in how we have shifted :eek:
There are "pile on" diarists who are always saying the same thing, pressing the feeder bar to get their army of zombie followers revved up. These are B students but they are both necessary and also heavily served because they are representative of the Average Base Voter. This is the group that shows like SiriusXM Progress or Rachel Maddow are aimed at.
This is where the bulk of campaign workers fall -- the cannon fodder. They are doctrinaire and in lock step. They don't suffer deviation from the party line. They tend to be young, just off the academic conveyor belt, and mediocre in their thinking. They are, basically, undergrads. They have not undergone the Kantian Revolution of perspective of graduate school where you cease to be a consumer of ideas and begin to become a creator.
But there are other nooks and crannies at Kos, too, where the smarties hang out and the creators thrive. None of these people will be in the top 100 diarists. They aren't there for clicks, they are there for policy.
But we need the mediocres, too -- without them we will never get elected. The electorate likes a Homecoming King with nice hair. They like a pretty show pony with a smooth line of talk. And they like a pep rally the day before the game, and that's what the public facing portion of Kos is.
So congress can just be bypassed. And he said the economy is great and recession talk is lies from the dems. But wait:
BREAKING: President Trump has just confirmed the White House is discussing a temporary payroll tax cut as a strategy to boost the economy as experts warn of an impending recession, news that comes after he denied initial reports of a possible payroll tax cut.
Trump suggested he could bypass Congress, though it's unclear how he would do so.
Getting a payroll tax cut just means you will lose less withholdings and owe more in April. It wouldn't change your income tax owed.
Nice rope-a-dope strategy. Kick the can down the road, let the new Dem president deal with it, then swoop in 2024 to bemoan the sh** job 46 did and take over even stronger with more right wing power that laid dormant under 46.
HEs on a roll today.
“JUST IN: Moments ago, President Trump said he thinks "Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty," and blasted Democratic lawmakers who want to cut aid to Israel.”
