In my many years, I have been adventuresome several times, having spent months at different times on the Appalachian Trail, once for a period of 26 days.
Being a political junkie, I have thought about how I could draw attention to Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff and what I came up with dates back to the 1920's, and that is polesitting..
I thought about raising money for the 2 campaigns by doing just that, polesitting. I'm thinking Atlanta, where it would make the most difference. If I could find sponsors to defray the costs, I would try to do a 3 or 4 week perch on a platform built to give me room to move about, in a limited fashion of course.
Possibly the DSCC or the campaigns, to which I have already contributed to. The importance of this race to myself and my family and many others is critical. I am 73 years old and my spouse is 77 and we are both on Social Security and Medicare. If we lose that, we are in poverty. Also I wish to leave a livable planet to my great grandson.
I have a recognition factor as Walter White of Breaking Bad for the past 7 years, as I was Walter White before Breaking Bad hit the airwaves. I have also been recognized as such by none other than Brian Cranston himself in Tampa years ago during the filming of the Infiltrator movie.
I can very easily carry on a conversation on many subjects, especially politics, having watched and followed politics since the election of Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.
I have been an Independent voter since my early years but I strongly lean Democrat and believe in the values of Democrats.
So I ask anyone who might have an in with someone who can help, I urge you to use it.
Thanks up front.
May peace find it's way to your door.
I don't know about you but I believe that we, as a species, are headed for the trash heap of evolution, never to be seen again.
Yes, we have blown it, big time!
I have said for many years that we would not be taken out by terrorists or war, but that we would be taken out by a virus. I have no way of knowing whether this one is the one or not. But believe it when I say there are others right behind, with the permafrost melting and releasing viruses that have never seen daylight for millions of years. Then what? We all die. Of course I won't be here to see it, but rest assured that it will occur in the not- too-distant future.
Our immune systems are not geared for Covid, much less a newer and deadlier version!
Our hospitals are bursting at the seams with Covid, doctors and nurses working double shifts trying to head off disaster, begging for PPE so they don't contract it and you won't wear a damn piece of cloth on your face! By seeing you without a mask in this time and place, it tells me all I really care to know about you.
You're the ones outside the abortion clinic with no masks on yelling "you can't tell me what I can or cannot do with my body". Yes, I know who you are. I see you everyday somewhere, shouting out your ignorance for the world to see and you think you are doing yourself and us a wonderful thing while children on our southern border languish in cells not knowing if they will ever see their parents again! So again, I say bullshit on republican imperialism and all who drink the Kool-Aid!
Have a nice day and may peace find it's way into your life!
I try very hard to see others views of the world, but try as I might I can't see the basis of the modern day republican's thought processes. They are almost always tied in with their religious beliefs, yet make no sense at all when it comes to behavior towards their fellow humans. I was always told by believers that faith in god meant you acted in a manner consistent with the bible and it's teachings. It has today become a bludgeoning tool by the far-right to get their piece of the pie and to hell with those who may have fallen in the path to a decent life. This is not only unfair to the masses left behind by the greed of republicans and their enablers, but it will eventually lead to the destruction of all American values and living conditions.
If we are to survive as a "UNITED" States of America, we must bring this greed under control, immediately! Unfortunately, the present occupant of the Resolute Desk, upon which Democracy has been held in high esteem for over 250 years, has been degraded to an extent thought impossible just 4 short years ago. Donald tRump may be an anomaly at this point, but should he go unpunished for the crimes against humanity that he has committed, our society as a whole is lost! We will open the floodgates to like actions by more unscrupulous actors in the near future.
I beg all tRump supporters to look within themselves and seek the truth, instead of listening to straight propaganda put out by people with vested interests in keeping the status quo. You as a bottom rung dweller will not gain more, you will lose. It's time to come to grips with your belief system and see it for what it is!
As always, may peace and enlightenment find it's way to your door!
I know this will not make it to the audience I need, but I must say it anyway! Will now be the time when you actually elect decent senators also? Loeffler and Perdue are lining their pockets with your money from insider information about the stock market and the pandemic! This cannot continue, we are broke!
Put your own and the countries interests first for a change. You already did it with Biden/Harris, now you can finish it by electing Warnock and Ossoff.
Please, your fellow citizens implore you to do this for them! We can't fight the virus without the Senate. We can't put our country back on the right track without the Senate!
Elect Warnock and Ossoff and finish what you started!
Please and thank you from all others who have to abide by your decisions!
As always, may Peace find it's way to your door!
Now that we have successfully navigated the election of the Biden/ Harris ticket, we must now turn our attention to the 2 Georgia runoff elections for the Senate. We must eliminate Mitch McConnell's influence as much as we can! By winning these 2 races, he will no longer be Senate Majority Leader.
Therefore I propose starting a fund to help them in their journey, to which I will contribute $10.00 to each candidate through Paypal, with more to be contributed at a later date.
If you believe like I do that we must give Joe Biden a running start to accomplish what must be accomplished, we need to eliminate the biggest roadblock, that being McConnell. He has already stated he will not pass Joe's cabinet members. He has been a thorn in the side of democracy for as many years as he has been in the Senate. It's time to end that reign of terror! I will write again as soon as I set it up and we'll see where it goes. Thanks ahead of time!
I was involved in a discussion tonight with my wife and daughter and yes, it got a little heated. No tempers, just let us say lively. Anyway, it was about BLM and why can blacks call each other certain derogatory names, yet whites can't. We finally reached the point where we agreed that certain cultures have taken derogatory words and milked the venom out of them, among their own culture and people, but let an outsider say the same thing and all hell breaks loose.
This is where we are today! We can't have civil conversations anymore because we all come at a problem from different viewpoints and can't find common ground.
I guess what I am getting at is that we are different, yet we are the same. We all have hangups about one another.
I truly believe we are in the end times for mankind. I give humans about another 100 years, just based on the trajectory and speed in which we are destroying ourselves and our planet. Look around you. I don't care how old you are, the world has changed for the worst in your lifetime!
The storms are bigger, the fires are more frequent and larger, flooding in Miami is becoming a regular thing, the oceans are dying from loss of salinity from the melting arctic and antarctic glaciers We have stripped the earth of it's resources and poisoned our land, air and water We don't have that much time before Mother Earth says goodbye, I don't want you anymore. So if you have any kind of brain that can see into the future, look right now, because you future lies in the decisions you make in the coming months. We will not have another chance! If we don't kick these bastards, and yes I mean BASTARDS, to the curb right now, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
With that, I will say goodnight and may peace find it's way to your door (if you have one). You never know these days!
Being as how I am 73 years old and 7th generation American of German , Scots, Irish and French descent, I think I definitely have opinions of present-day politics as compared to 65 years ago! I was raised in my political views by one of my favorite Republican Presidents, Dwight David Eisenhower. Even he, a decorated war commander and Republican President, saw the danger in 1960 of where our country was headed. constant war, the Military-Industrial complex.
And look where we are today! The most corrupt administration I have ever witnessed in my lifetime, yet 40 % of our population refuses to see it. I try to engage in a quiet conversation with supporters of #45 and all they come back with are the same talking points, no originality. They are dead inside! I've never seen anything like it!
Joseph Goebbels was Hitlers PR man and Propaganda Minister. His philosophy was that if you tell the same lie repeatedly, after 2 months it becomes fact and nothing you can do will reverse that in the mind of a brainwashed person.
This is where we are today, in America. 40% of our population is brainwashed by the Republican Party and it's not a coincidence. They have attacked for many years with lies and distortions, the minds of average Americans, struggling to live on meager wages and allowing them just enough to keep them from taking up arms against the government. No, it's better to take up arms against one another, thereby doing their dirty work for them so they can grab all the assets and leave you with nothing. And believe me, they have already succeeded. One thing they failed to recognize is that you must maintain a balance between people with money and people without. Otherwise, when no one has any money to buy things, businesses go bankrupt, Sound familiar? this is where we are today, morally and financially bankrupt.
Keep up your delusions, tRumpers, you will always pay at the checkout!
Have a great day and may you find peace in your life! I have!
I have decided that I will not listen to or watch any political ads this time around. Let them waste millions of dollars that could be put to better use.
I can guaranty that ads by the Republicans will be distortions of the truth, simply because of how they have handled the government the past 4 years and them trying to stay out of jail! I will base my vote not on ads but performance and common sense.
They will say Biden did this many years ago or Biden did that. They wil tell you how they suffered so greatly under an Obama/Biden administration without saying a word about GW's or tRump's administrations, which were both total disasters!
They won't say a word about the 20,000+ and counting lies that tRump has told, causing millions to lose their jobs and hundreds of thousands to lose their lives. No, they won't tell you that.
What they will tell you is that under a Biden presidency America will look like it has for the past 4 years as though none of this is tRump's fault.
No, they'll say it's all Obama/Bidens fault. Like where in the hell have we been and who has been running the country for the past 4 years? The republican senate has blocked any progress on pressing issues except tax breaks for the wealthy for the past 12 years while America rots and the planet dies from pollution.
I don't know about you, but my mind was made up long ago and no political ad will change that! I only hope that there are millions more like me and we have a somewhat reasonable chance of having a legitimate election. Believe me, there are many bad actors in the shadows who would like it to be otherwise. Vote like your lives and livelihood depend on it, because they do!
As always, I wish you peace and happiness.
When 40% of the registered voters in this country still believe that donald trump is a viable person to carry on the title of President --- we have a problem!
When DJT continues, on a daily basis, to commit crimes and there is literally no means of stopping him --- we have a problem!
When Russia is continuing their efforts to
de-legitimize our elections --- we have a problem!
When the entire states of California and Oregon are being annihilated by fire due to climate change and literally half our nation does not believe it nor will our government help because they gave all the money to their wealthy donors --- we have a problem!
When 200,000 of our fellow countrymen are deceased because DJT committed genocide by lying and concealing the true scope of the virus in the beginning of the pandemic and refused to help the states --- we have a problem!
I know this only scratches the surface of the vast quantity of problems this country faces because many, for unknown reasons, will again vote for the Orange Idiot, but if you have any sense of decency or empathy, you will not be one of them!
I just know it will be a long road back to sanity!
As always, may peace find it's way to you!
If it wasn't so deadly serious, the downfall of tRump would be hilarious. It is fully under way and this clown is left without a circus! Woodward's tapes of the Orange Afterbirth admitting on a recorded conversation that he purposely held back on informing the public of the deadly consequences of Covid 19. Does this make all of you supporters proud to be so stupid as to believe a word this "man" utters?
Your time will come, as soon as we get this under control and wrest the Presidency back into the hands of someone qualified to hold that office again!
I don't feel a damn bit sorry for you and yours. In fact, I hope you finally feel the pain and suffering that you have put the rest of us through for the past 4 years. You will now have to go find your rocks and crawl back beneath them, because you will no longer have a place in our civilized world. You blew it big time.
I hope it was worth it, because it sure as hell wasn't from decent peoples viewpoints!
The world around djt is collapsing in real time and we couldn't be happier, because we can finally see some daylight for a change! As for the rest of us, it is time to go all out and push these bastards into the gutters and prisons where they belong. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! Just don't do it TWICE!
As always, may peace finally find it's way back to America!
Hillary for AG of the United States! Lock them up!
It is time, America --
To completely demolish a political party in our country!
To banish into oblivion the hatred and anger of the short-sighted Republicans and White Nationalists!
To send a message to those whose only aim is the Rapture that not everyone feels the way they do! If you want to go, go! I'm happy here!
To send a message to the chronically greedy rich that the worlds resources are to be shared, not hoarded for their personal benefit and enjoyment!
To stop this hatred of others simply because they do not fall in line with your world view, or look the way you do!
I've thought many times that DJT is an aberration, but he's not. He is the poster child of an element of our society that is intent on one thing and that is something that we must ALWAYS be vigilant about, domination of others! There will always be a group who feel the the world is their oyster. We cannot afford to let them dominate others! They have been doing it for too long!
To elevate a person like DJT to the highest office in our land tells very much about the people who did the elevating. He is hollow, devoid of any consciousness or feelings for others except contempt. Simply look at the faces of his family. He has done to them what his father did to him!
We have seen this same scenario repeated throughout history if you only open your eyes. Why do we never learn? There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, only misery.
Take it upon yourselves to end this again, by regaining your sanity if you can. Otherwise, we are doomed to again repeat the mistakes of the past and right now the outlook is not good!
As always, may you find peace in your own life.
As a seasoned veteran of The Resistance, I am heartened by the past several days news reports concerning the turd floating around in the whirlpool of scandals.
Reports of his campaign committee being broke!
Reports of DeJoy being implicated in campaign fraud for ten years!
Reports of Osama Bin Laden's niece endorsing the Orange Afterbirth!
His military scandals being brought to light!
Reports of the Walter Reed episode coming out!
Reports of leaks of damaging info being leaked by insiders!
Michael Cohen's book being published today with many salacious details about the Orange Afterbirth and his pedophile yearnings, the younger the better, including Cohen's daughter!
Canceling all ad buys except DC!
The MSM finally growing a pair and doing what they did during Watergate, investigative journalism!
I don't know about you, but to me this is hopefully the beginning of the end of this nightmare!
We must simply DESTROY the Republican Party in this election! We cannot afford to allow it to exist any longer!
Let's go for a 6 million vote cushion this time, hopefully
As usual, may peace find it's way to your door!
I am forever wondering what it will take to shake tRump supporters off their game. Maybe the fact that he considers military personnel who go to war "suckers and losers" might do it. I doubt it, but what the hell, one can always hope.
Then comes the "series of mini-strokes" and "possible heart attack" that no one knows anything about! Plus "Adderal Dependency".
How much more do you need? Oh, I forgot, you don't believe in FACTS because they go against all you believe in! And besides, that Kool-Aid is so refreshing on a bright summer day! And besides, that Joe person is such a loser, he can't possibly save us from financial ruin. Oh, wait a minute, didn't he and that black man save our economy once and now he has to do it again?
tRump is boffing Ivanka and has been for years, but Biden can't hug a child without being called a pedophile? Get real!
I can no longer insult your intelligence, mainly because you have to have some to start with. But you have to live with yourselves, not me.I imagine that is a fate worse than death!
So until the next time, may peace be with you. dennismoconnor.com
I don't know about you, but I am physically and emotionally drained from the past 3 1/2 years.
Now I am being told by my granddaughter that if I delete people from my Facebook page because of their beliefs I am being childish. If that's the case I will continue to be so.
Anyone, and I do mean anyone, who can still support that bag of shit they choose to call their "president" does not need to be in my life. I don't regret that!
If you choose to ignore the facts of what he has done to this country and it's people, I really don't need you in my life.
I am a senior on Social Security, having worked and paid into it my entire life. Now if that fool gets reelected and stops the payroll tax, guess what? All that I earned will be gone, along with millions of other seniors.
DJT is THE most dangerous cancer in this country at the present time! And if you don't see it, you are blind. You choose not to see!
Personally, I am fed up with all of it but I can't quit. I have a 7 year old great grandson that I love with all my life and I can't give up on his future. If you wish to be stupid or blind, so be it. But I choose not to!
So, in other words, I will say the truth as I see it and if you can't take it, don't read it.
Donald John Trump is a traitor, a con man, a vile racist, a pedophile, a sexual deviate, a rapist, a financial disaster,a liar, and wants to be a king and overlord.
We cannot let it happen! We must destroy him and his followers in this next election! Failure is not an option!
I truly hope you find peace in your life, I know I will after November 3rd, provided enough of us vote to remove the cancer.
