The enormity and clearly treasonous actions by the trump regime are criminal offenses, whether negligent homicide vis a vis the pandemic, or simply treasonous overtly undermining the basis of any “democracy” that is fair and honest voting, and still the wheels of government turn, and political forces remain craven and largely silent! WTF!?

It’s way past time the DP establishment so-called leaders stop playing whiffle-ball against this utterly corrupt regime from Hell, and numerous corporate crimes, banker/wall street usury and theft, and the existential environmental crises!

The DP establishment players are themselves corrupt, timid, craven, complicit and silent on too-many critical issues, not leaders or even informing the public/voters of the issues, or fight for much of anything, but roll-over before the fight even begins! - They don’t care about much of anything except their corporate campaign-contribution bribes, steady-state theory, and personal profits/power.

The state of our republic, government, and politics is more than pathetic and dominated by feckless idiots that seem so intentionally incompetent, criminal, complicit, and silent it rises to the level that cannot - must not - be ignored.

A serious case in point
" Climate activists say the tepid political response, particularly from the Democratic House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is yet another sign that US politicians are far from ready to take concrete steps to deal with the realities of climate change, let alone write laws to stop burning fossil fuels in order to slow its effects".

“Another four years of Trump in office would devastate the international climate movement, but even a Democratic-controlled government is not guaranteed to substantially address the crisis.”
The failure of our political class and those that manipulate them to maintain power and business as usual that devastates the planet, environment, ordinary people by the millions, while enriching themselves and crony co-conspirators and war-machine MICC is so over the fuckin top it must enrage millions! Still other millions remain silent and subserviently lap-dogs to the notion that the DP establishment is working for them - it is NOT; it works for the status quo and not rocking the sinking boat!

Yep, got our post card yesterday, thought it seemed to smell of rotten fish. Especially suspect was ask for your absentee ballot 15 days prior to election; meaning you will not get a ballot before election day, this is insanity at it’s best. Talked to our mailman last week, offered my condolences for the shit happening to his job, told him he is loved by us, and wished him and all his comrades well. Feel really bad for them with shit for ethics people running this show.

Yes, since the intent of DeJoy is to engage in deliberate obfuscation then one would logically think that the Democrats as well as the Republicans would be eager to remove the Postmaster General from his position as quickly as possible since both corporate political parties proclaim themselves to be staunch advocates of law and order. DeJoy’s malicious act is clearly meant to deceive the public and, probably through Trump’s urging, create as much chaos as possible. And yet neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have taken steps to remove him from office. And what is happening now will probably be just a precursor to what lies ahead as the weeks melt away and move inexorably to November 3. This is simply more evidence that this country is acting more like a banana republic than the allegedly greatest country in the world.

The whole theme of this idiotic postcard (we got ours yesterday) is: Be afraid of voting, be very afraid!!!

You’d think that surge of Christmas cards, ads, and packages the Post Office handles every damn year was nothing compared to… 5x9" ballot envelopes? This is like the waiter at the restaurant shamming that it’s too much trouble to take our order, or to bring us our food, when it’s what they do, it’s all they do. The question for US Americans: How much indignity is too much for you?

"This may have started off as a well-intentioned effort by USPS…”

Right. It’s past time to stop giving wiggle-room and the benefit of the doubt to these dark clowns. That just encourages them.

Best thing to do is to follow the information provided by your state and county Board of Elections. Absolutely ignore anything involved with the Trump admin.

Check regularly to make sure you are registered to vote.

“Sending misinformation” has been the at the heart of GOP propaganda strategy ever since John Fremont was their first POTUS candidate in 1856. GOP misinformation strategy has been ramping up ever since Robert Taft, Joseph McCarthy and the Dulles brothers launched their witch hunt in 1950 to the extent that the GOP now has the greatest propaganda machine the world has ever seen.

This flawed effort is due to a flaw in rightest thinking. The right imagines that hierarchy results from tendency of the best to rise to the top and the worst to sink to the bottom. For that reason the boss, the CEO, the president are empowered to do whatever they wish. On the left–especially the anarchist-socialist left–we know we must get feedback from all parties–and act upon that feedback. The Secretaries of State begged to provide feedback on the mailing. They were refused.

Folks: the writing is on the wall, one way or another if Trump loses the election he will call it fraudulent and if he wins it will probably be fraudulent also.

Wow. Is this @Robert_Taylor creature a certified redhatted covidiot? Sure sounds like one.

Don’t you have some urgent jam-packed unmasked gatherings to attend, fool? I’m surprised you can spare time for the Commons, aside from your busy schedule of superspreader activism.

Oh, it’s “unacceptable.” DeJoy will surely be tossing and turning over this slamming indictment.

If only the Democrats were even one-half as successful as the Repugs at er, accomplishing their missions.

Aw, now he’s flirting – “my darling snowflake.” Oh stop it, you’re making me blush, sweetheart!

Perhaps someone should be so kind as to fill you in, poor sweet baby Robert: Naked fools have very little influence or effect on the Commons. You’re totally wasting your time here, and I’m done even making fun of you. Goodbye, fool. Don’t you have some urgent jam-packed unmasked gatherings to attend?

Just the fact that you seem to think the democrats are any better would indicate that their propaganda efforts have been far more successful than the GOP’s.

And yet one would logically think that mail-in voting would be much more preferable to voting in person while a pandemic is raging throughout the country.

I got one in a Southern state, as if that were even necessary. The Beige Bastard is using all the offices of the federal government against its own citizens. Where is the F***ing Congress? Why are they not screaming about this? Where is the Justice Dept? Oh yeah, they’ve been captured too.
