I thought we all hated him because he's got the juice despite having a voting record that looks like bill clinton and a list of political accomplishments you'd need a microscope to parse

I love how quickly the media shifted one Beto.

6 months ago the media was like “OMG, he’s so inspiring, he should run for President. He’s a Mexican Obama, andbits a tragedy that they won’t let him join the Latinx Congressional Caucus!”

Now they’re like “What the fuck is this pretending to skateboard ass, peckerwood ass, lose to Ted Cruz ass motherfucker doing trying to run for President?”

He really shouldn’t be running. Like maybe he could beat Trump, but honestly, his early campaign seems like sort of a joke to me. Really manufactured.

There's no guarantee he'll ever be more popular than he is currently.

If he ran solely for the Senate and lost, he has to hope Trump wins, because what's a WHITE guy 12 years out of the only significant office he's ever been in going to look like in 2028 when a bunch of other Democrats all got their own boosts in the years since? Especially with Sandy all but guaranteed for two terms in the White House, and probably even a repeal of the 22nd Amendment.

Yeah, I guess you are right, so he is probably screwed either way.
On a related note, after watching some recent videos of his, I can't say I'm a fan.

"I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,” Trump said.

Surprise phone calls and 'selfie lines': Inside Elizabeth Warren's grassroots strategy

(CNN)Sen. Elizabeth Warren made her way down a list of names displayed on her laptop, dialing one phone number after another on her cellphone.

Everyone who picked up -- it was evening, and a few of the calls went to voicemail -- had two things in common: They had recently donated $25 or less to Warren's presidential campaign, and they couldn't believe that it was the Massachusetts Democrat on the line.

"No way. Get out of town," Grace, a graduate student in Alaska, blurted out.

"Oh my goodness," Matt, an Iowa resident, said with a laugh. "My wife is sitting here. Her jaw just dropped."

CNN recently sat in on one of Warren's "call time" sessions with small-dollar supporters

...

In calls that lasted no more than a few minutes each, Warren spoke with Matt, the president of a childcare association in Iowa who wanted to discuss play-based learning; Sharifa, a teacher in California worried about lower-income students who can't afford to participate in certain school activities; and Grace, the Alaska student eager to discuss the country's mental health care system.

And Warren was quick to put Logan, a college student in Idaho who works at a McDonald's, on the spot.

"So what do you learn from working at McDonald's?" she asked.

"Um, what do I learn?" Logan replied, laughing. He went on to explain the many moving parts from the moment an order gets taken to when the food goes out the window, and that "if the person managing the whole thing doesn't have a good idea of where all their resources are and where they need to be used most effectively, nothing ever gets done."

Warren responded that Logan's colleagues at the fast food restaurant "are people we need in this fight."

"I'm going to count on you to talk to some of those folks who are working at McDonald's. Can I do that?" she asked.

"Yes, absolutely."

...

What's been dubbed the "selfie line" at the end of every Warren campaign event is key to the senator's grassroots strategy. (Technically, the photos aren't selfies -- a Warren aide helps snap one photo after another in quick succession.)

Asked how much she can learn from these seconds-long interactions, Warren insisted it's more than you would think.

"Sometimes it's an issue that really matters to them and someone will say to me: 'I've got $68,000 in student loan debt. I'm teaching public school. There's no way I can hold this together,'" she told CNN. "Or, 'I have a child with a serious illness and all of her life she's going to have had a pre-existing condition. Please don't let them change the law.'"

"And sometimes it's just to say, 'Can I have a hug?' We do a lot of hugs."

According to the Warren campaign, she has done 29 photo lines this year, spending more than 26 hours posing with more than 9,500 people -- all of whom the campaign hopes will walk away with memorable impressions.
not even actual selfies ::)

Beto O'Rourke was a member of the oldest group of computer hackers in United States history, Reuters reports. The latest Democrat to join the presidential candidate pool was part of the hugely influential Cult of the Dead Cow, or CDC, a notorious group of hackers who released tools that allowed ordinary people to hack computers running Microsoft's Windows. The CDC had no more than 50 members over the group’s life, and continues today. Members of the group have protected O’Rourke’s secret for decades, but are acknowledging the candidate's membership in interviews as part of an upcoming book titled Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World. O’Rourke credits the CDC with developing many of his free-thinking principles that have landed his politics somewhere between liberal, and libertarian. “Part of my success was being exposed to people who thought differently and explored how things work,” O’Rourke said of his time in the CDC. “There are alternate paths to service and success, and it’s important to be mindful of that.” As part of the CDC, O’Rourke wrote essays called text files, or t-files, under the handle “Psychedelic Warlord,” which remain online to this day. Notable contributions he wrote as a teenager include an essay on how the world would work without money, one is a disturbing murder fantasy about killing children, and another takes on a self-proclaimed neo-Nazi.

Editor's note: Dove Schools provided the Tulsa World with the following statement from Board Chairwoman Mary Blankenship Pointer after this story was published by the Washington Post:

"A story in the Washington Post warrants a response from our school’s leadership:

"Dove Schools is not involved in the political turmoil taking place in Turkey in any way.

Quote
"Dove Schools first began serving Oklahoma students in 2000. In the 19 school years, DOVE has consistently succeeded in providing a rigorous college preparatory STEM-based curriculum with a strong emphasis on discipline, character education, and service to the community. With a diverse student body of over 85% minority (African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and Others) and over 80% free/reduced lunch each year of operation, Dove serves the students and families who need the most help, in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

"We consider it a great honor this week to have hosted First Lady Melania Trump. She and the White House could have chosen any number of high-performing schools across the country. They chose Dove because it’s a character-based school with extraordinary results in academic achievement.

"As Mrs. Trump said, 'Dove Schools embody kindness, respect, positive interactions, and strong character through the curriculum.'

"Dove Schools is not affiliated with any religious or social organization. In fact, as a public charter schools, any such association is prohibited. Dove Schools is run by an independent board of directors.

"We are proud of our status as one of Oklahoma’s best-performing schools, which routinely has 100 percent college acceptance rate among graduating seniors. Our children and their families are our priority, and will continue to be our primary focus."

The visit by Melania Trump to a charter school in Tulsa on Monday seemed to be a picture-perfect success for the first lady. She complimented pre-K students on their crayon skills and observed ­middle-schoolers conducting science experiments. She made small talk and warned a second-grader who had complained about her homework that it was “very important.”

But the first lady had just stepped into a zone fraught with potential diplomatic peril with her stop promoting her Be Best initiative that aims to improve children’s well-being. The Dove School of Discovery, a Tulsa charter institution that focuses on character education, is believed to be part of a network of schools in the United States and abroad linked to the Gulen movement, a secretive religious movement inspired by a 77-year-old Turkish Muslim cleric.

Turkish media and observers of the Turkish-U.S. relationship professed surprise that Melania Trump would visit a school identified with cleric Fethullah Gulen, whose network the Turkish government calls a terrorist organization.

“Melania Trump visits FETO charter school in Oklahoma,” read the headline on TRT World, Turkey’s state-run broadcaster, following Trump’s visit. Turkish authorities refer to Gulen’s movement as FETO, an acronym for the Fethullah Terrorist Organization.

Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for the first lady, said the site was “both recommended and vetted” before the visit and shrugged off any suggestion that there was significance to the choice besides the school’s achievements. “The school was recognized with the 2018 National School of Character award,” she said, citing an accolade given by Character.org, a nonprofit group that certifies and promotes ­character-development programs. “It was chosen because of their excellent academics and commitment to character education. Their diverse staff and student body should be celebrated.”

This story made me laugh because of my own personal employment situation right now.  :doge

I've seen three separate takes on the Christchurch shooting that roughly converge on "vigilante violence is the wrong way to address the legitimate grievance of the shooter." One from a think tank dude, one from a Fox News talking head, and one from a member of the United States Congress.

BrainDead was awesome. I think the reason it was cancelled after a single season is because after Trump's election, reality got more absurd than fiction.

Also, O'Rourke has a better shot at the national stage than in Texas. Guy was an relative unknown until last year and campaigned as a progressive in the ol' lone star state against one of the most hated representatives in the country and still lost. But only because he wouldn't compromise. In Texas that won't do as many of our best Democrats still have a little red in em. Nationally, O'Rourke has a better chance because his agenda matches progressives wants compared to Texas.

That said, I still put him far below Sanders. A progressive running in the 2020 Democratic race isn't really special and nothing about Beto besides name power stands out.

Unfortunately for the next year or so I'm going to have to deal with constant Beto 2020 canvas calls.

- wants to give every adult $1k/mo, free and clear, working or not, no questions asked
    - paid for by 10% VAT tax and economic growth to give everyone a slice of every google ad buy and every amazon sale
    - you're only going to lose money if you spend over $10k a month
    - this ends poverty and homelessness etc.
    - we need this because automation puts 30-40% of jobs at risk within twenty years (driving, retail, clerical, etc.)

- wants medicare for all
- wants a green new deal
- over 75 other proposals on his website https://www.yang2020.com/policies/

- guy is an entrepreneur with an economics degree
- founded a startup that encouraged that encouraged young college kids to start businesses in the midwest instead of bay area or new york to help revitalize those economies
- he's very frank and honest which gives him a lot of authenticity

- he's getting memelord / alt-right / 4chan support because Trump failed them, Yang doesn't put down white people for being white, and if "western civilization is going to end" they might as well get $1000 a month. I mean chuds suck but the more votes the merrier

An 18-year-old Catholic high school student who has not been vaccinated against chickenpox filed a lawsuit this past week against the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Jerome Kunkel, a senior at Assumption Academy in Walton, claims health officials violated his freedom of religion and other rights by ordering students without the vaccine to not attend school or extracurricular activities.

Kunkel's school is suffering a chickenpox outbreak, with 32 cases. The school had approximately 110 students in 2015.

On March 14, the Northern Kentucky Health Department instructed students without proof of vaccination or immunity against chickenpox to not attend school in order to "prevent further spread of this illness."

The students were told to remain home until three weeks after the last case of chickenpox at the school.

But Kunkel, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday with the Boone County Circuit Court, opposes the vaccine on religious grounds "due to its being derived from aborted fetal cells."

While I'm not a fan of voting computers, at least this should stop some of the prevalent Republican election fraud and make recounts unnecessary. Of course it won't keep them from illegally purging undesirable voters.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was cheered Saturday by a crowd at the Delaware Democratic Party dinner where he said he has the "most progressive record of anybody running." He quickly corrected himself and said, "anybody who would run" — and then added, "I didn't mean it."
