What dem can absolutely beat Trump (or whichever repub they nominate)? Biden already beat him once. I can't see any Biden voters switching to Trump, but I could see some switching in the other direction.
Americans will remain effectively enslaved by our capitalist society.

So now on the right an insurrection (DC) was a "peaceful protest"
How many deaths were there in the Tennessee "insurrection"?
The issue with the mug shot makes me suspect the reason for the handcuffs. Is the Secret Service in the bag for Trump?

It was reported that the courthouse doesn't have the proper equipment for a mugshot. He's not getting booked in a police station where they do that.
as soon as "small government" is inconvenient to them, they abandon it in a heartbeat.

Just like every other "principal" they supposedly believe in. I don't think they believe in anything other than money and power or social position.
Goodness how many viable lawsuits against Fox News are currently taking place?

So when are we getting Universal Healthcare? Like Western Europe,Canada etc.

Maybe when we get a fillibuster-proof majority in the Senate, a large Dem majority in the House, and a Dem POTUS. You know, like FDR had. GOTV!
13th anniversary of when the democratic party was too cowardly and corrupt to actually fix the problem and sold us all out to the insurance company middlemen forever.

Or didn't have a sufficiently large majority to prevent one or two dissenters from derailing a bill.
They never consider the consequences of their policies. Not only will existing OB/GYNs not want to take the risk of practicing in these states, but their medical schools will also be unable to train new OB/GYNs, reducing the national supply of same. Many women will have no access to Pre-natal or delivery care. This will increase the rate of infant and maternal mortality. In order to prevent abortion, they are endangering wanted pregnancies, in addition to unwanted ones. In other words, killing actual babies (and their mothers). Brilliant!
the Alto wasn't a flop, as it's sometime [SIC] called because it wasn't a commercial product in the first place. Its successor the Star was the commercial version, so that was the flop, not the Alto. The other thing about the later machine that's often overlooked is that it was the Star that introduced the desktop metaphor. The Alto had no "desktop", and indeed, almost no elements of the familiar GUI we all know today.www.theregister.com
I once worked for a huge computer manufacturing company with a three-letter acronym for a name. Xerox (in Sepulveda, CA) was one of my customers, (we were trying to get them to buy a new, small, mainframe system) and I saw the Xerox Star system with a white-on-black GUI and a mouse in 1981 (got to play with it). I don't recall whether I saw it before or after the introduction of the IBM PC that year. I got my first PC several months after the announcement (IBM totally blew it on forecasted sales).
The Alto was an experimental machine built by boffins in Xerox's Palo Alto Research Centre (PARC) in the early 1970s to explore new thinking in user interface design, and while never made available commercially " Xerox would sell the Star, a version of the Alto, in 1981 " a couple of thousand were made for use by Xerox staff and some were donated to universities and research facilities. Arguably the first personal computer " though some historians consider it a minicomputer " it was also the first to feature a graphical interface controlled by a mouse and to incorporate networking. www.theregister.com
-I knew on 9/11 that bush was going to have a stupid reaction that does harm to our nation.

I was 54 on 9/11. It was totally obvious to me. Anybody who followed the campaigns could see what kind of idiot he was.
That's because they're incapable of discerning truth. They've been fed a diet of lies since Clinton took office in '93.
What's not a joke is how you lick corporate boot and have no issues with corporations hoarding this info and/or selling it.

Corporations can't deprive me of my life, liberty, or property. The government can. I thought all righties understood this one!
I want to see a VIABLE 3rd party
That would require changing the way elections are conducted. Every state would have to agree to the rules or the results wouldn't reflect the "Will Of The People". The way we do it now almost guarantees a duopoly.
I've never been affected by the sexuality of total strangers. Is that different for "conservatives"?
So some people dressed as women should use the men's room? Trans women are at greater risk of assault, rape, and murder than cis women. I have not heard of a cis woman (or girl) being raped or molested by a trans man. Can you cite more than one such incident?
I believe trans is another word for dysphoria
#23 | POSTED BY RHYMEGUNFIGHTER
Yes, trans is another word for dysphoria, and here's what the American Psychiatric Association (you know, the real experts with the M.D. degrees and 5 years of Residency) has to say about treatment of gender dysphoria:
Support for people with gender dysphoria may include open-ended exploration of their feelings and experiences of gender identity and expression, without the therapist having any pre-defined gender identity or expression outcome defined as preferable to another.2 Psychological attempts to force a transgender person to be cisgender (sometimes referred to as gender identity conversion efforts or so-called "gender identity conversion therapy") are considered unethical and have been linked to adverse mental health outcomes. www.psychiatry.org
they advertise drugs for whatever...then they include a warning about not taking them if you have or are suffering from, again, whatever.
I have an idea. Why don't we let doctors decide what drugs we need? Like every other developed country (except New Zealand for some reason) that bans the advertising of prescription drugs.
Oh, I know, freedumb, right?

Because sex crimes offend the conscience more as does the possibility of recidivism, especially when the victims are children. Don't be obtuse.

Do you realize how many things people get put on the sex offenders list for? Public urination, teenagers sending explicit pictures (of themselves) to each other, and just being in possession of explicit pictures of minors, even though they are minors themselves. These are not dangerous criminals, but they are treated like those who molest children.
They face all the same re-entry problems as the ones who are dangerous.
