Remember how TFG used to claim he had the greatest economy in the history of human civilization, and that was based entirely on unemployment and the stock market?
Gosh, both are better now than they were even in 2019.
t's a necessary healthcare service so this is absolutely the right call.
I'm not well off enough to afford personal security. Since I'm in more than one of those categories, my name stays offline.
Online harassment can feel like punching up to many. It is always, always punching down.
Let's review: the various jobs reports are all very encouraging, GDP is growing and is anticipated to be roaring by 2022, and wages are up. Interest rates for loans/mortgages are still at historically low levels. Inflation is up, but it’s a global phenomenon. The infrastructure bill was passed and the dollars/projects should kick off in this fiscal year.
Democrats should be able to trumpet real progress for Americans - and tell the voters that the Republicans have nothing to present but fear and lies.
Now we need to pass the Build Back Better bill.

@TonyStark I'm thankful for Jennifer Rubin's columns. Hard to believe that her column was called "Right Turn" when she was hired in 2009! I'm glad she saw the light.
That's a good list of things we can be thankful for. Reading the column is worth your time, but for those who can't access it, a brief synopsis:
Biden and his Cabinet
Attorney General Merrick and the DOJ actually doing its job
The House of Representatives passing useful bills and censuring out-of-control Republican representatives
The 1/6 Committee and Reps. Cheney and Kinzinger standing up for democracy
A single Senate Republican, Sen. Murkowski, who voted for voting rights
The Minneapolis jury that voted for justice for George Floyd's killer
New Yorkers for ousting an abusive governor and Californians for beating back a recall effort
Democratic governors and the few not-insane Republican ones
Groups protecting democracy and our military which also does so
The Former Guy woke up much later, then tweeted, then watched Fox and Friends and called into that show while his valet painted him orange. The Former Guy did not read his PDB and could not even absorb a simplified verbal version.
Thanks for this. Perhaps the press could talk up the good new more. During the trump years, it was always parroting trump’s “the economy is great” prefacing the litany of embarrassing and aberrant behavior. But the economy was not great.
Biden and his Cabinet are one of the things I will be most grateful for this Thanksgiving. I just wish that more of the press would use this as an example of what needs to be put into print (and on TV) more often. We would all benefit and it's fact.
This column itemizes the reasons why the media doom-and-gloom about Democrats and this administration is so much nonsense. Face it. We can all be thankful that we're all better off than we were one year ago. As this Jennifer Rubin column shows us, that message needs to be reported and, indeed, emphasized today and every day. I am very thankful, indeed.
A President who is a human being and trying to do the right thing for the country is no longer to be taken for granted.
Opinion | Giving thanks for democracy;
There is plenty to appreciate this year.
Good. Bankrupt all of the white nationalists, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and every group they ever form. Stay away from all of our cities. We don't want you.
We are working on a new fedilab version. The whole code is being refractored.
App will work offline, so you can go through the past toots in your home timeline even when you don't have internet.
Our plan is to make the UI more clean and simple, while somehow keeping the existing features.
Also, the app will work smoothly.
Still lot of work to do. We'll share more updates with you. Let us know your thoughts
