It's really just too much to watch this shit show that has become the Democrats. It's clear that the party is dead and we need to use technology and the passion that exists around the country to steer our country right again. It's a summer Friday. "A BETTER DEAL" I'm far from the only person … Continue reading A Better Friday Digest Post.
Gun control is a smart idea. Gun control may well be needed for Democrats to have people around to actually vote in 2020. This was shared by a good, smart friend of mine on Facebook. The sentiment may have some underlying foundational goodness, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions and this … Continue reading We Shoot Ourselves In The Head.
I wonder, honestly, when the realization will settle in on the average Democrat. By average, I mean the person who wants the world to be a better place, wants to help others, and wants to see their leaders fight the good fight. What's tragic is that so many of these people give their hard-earned money … Continue reading Washington Thinks You Are A Fool. And You Keep Proving Them Right.
It must be satire I thought when it first popped up in my news feed - I mean, given the situation unfolding every day in front of is, the fight for the Afford able Care Act, the issue that there actually probably is something there in all the Russian smoke, or perhaps even just the … Continue reading “Have You Seen How Bad We Are At This?”
In 2000, Nader's candidacy was the combination of Comey letter / Russian Rumors that allowed the Gore campaign and the DC consultants to point a finger at something other than their own incompetency and failure to fight for every vote in Florida. At the time I remember, well, the uproar when Nader said the two … Continue reading Why Ralph Nader Was And Is Absolutely Right.
There are many pillars of the rotten foundation that explain why the Democrats lose so many races that they should win - but one that is certainly clear is that we never aggressively attack the true leaders of the Right even though we know who they are. In case you don't - meet David Koch. … Continue reading We Never Attack Their True Leaders.
It's been less than a week since Jon Ossoff lost his race in Georgia. There has been much consternation about the race, what happened and why (and how so much was spent to achieve so little.) Last week, ironically on a project I am working on in South Africa, we conducted a small test … Continue reading Should Democratic Campaigns Do Post-Mortems?
After the debacle in Georgia, where national Democrats and especially the grassroots poured money into the race to the tune of $30,000,000 which much of it vanishing into the hands of DC consultants, progressive attention is turning to other races. The narrative that "we were so close" from the mainstream media and DC consultants feed the … Continue reading Hold Onto Your Wallets People.
This is insane. Criminally insane? Just maybe but more on that later. It pisses me off that I have friends who literally gave Jon Ossoff $5 a week and it was torched (h/t Van Jones) on completely greedy and incompetent consultants who abuse the progressive community online in a manner that makes Donald Trump look … Continue reading Mothership Motherf***ers.
Donald Trump, Jr is right. The Democrats (again) just won a medal (a very expensive one) for participation. The Democrats energized nationally (and that hurt in the long run) and failed to run a race to win (again) - they relied on a crap playbook and lost a race to a woman who actually said … Continue reading The Three Ads That Lost The Race For Ossoff.
