What the Hell Just Happened?



biden and the other nine presidential hopefuls on the democratic side of things, battled one another and trump himself, on the stage in texas. castro doesn't like biden very much at all; and now we all know it. Sanders seemingly had a scratchy voice as warren showed she literally has a plan for everything. Beto is serious about cracking down on assault rifles, and rightfully so; and Amy won the debate. Harris and booker tried and Harris focused mor on dissing trump than anything else--which was refreshing from the biden attacks. 



Do people wanna see two old white men argue and throw down? Is that what this has all boiled down to? An old angry white man scuffle? Will it spill into the streets? Will people vote for biden just to see the magic? He, Warren and sanders all are in the lead with mayor pete, Harris, booker and more, maintaining single digit approval ratings and interest from voters. 

No one knows who to vote for. Who should get the nomination to go against the country's ;worst ever president? Are we voting for who would be the most fun to watch battle? Or who would help our flailing country the best? 

Biden seems ready for one thing only: to yell at trump and grade him. Put him in his place. Otherwise, he's flubbing it all up whenever he has opportunity. Intentionally? Perhaps. Since society loves its nostalgia, it's no wonder he leads in the polls. Did Bernie's numbers go up? Anyone's numbers go up after the debate in texas? 

After watching, one thing is very clear: there are still too many candidates on the stage.

Liberal Pessimism is Killing the Vibe


it's 2019 yet people are still writhing in pain from the 2016 loss to trump. i get it. it does suck. it's insane really. but to pout and whine about trump getting re-elected is straight-up pathetic and lonely. it's sad and overly pessimistic. if these doom-filled sentiments were only expressed by a few like michael moore, fine. however, as it is, despite 45's approval rating never going above 50%, it's an opinion shared by masses of liberals, as 19 or so democratic nominees, aim to gain suppport from roughly 75%+ undecided voters. 

what's the point in being so sad and defeatist? what good is it? we get it-trump is the worst! but to relish in the horrible thoughts of his being re-elected, and tell your fellow citizens we're "all doomed again", is a waste of time, shows a great deal of weakness and does nothing to further the conversation regarding ways to oust the corrupt pig. 

at his worst, citizens were still convinced w bush would never serve another term. he did, but it didn't stop the protests and push for a democrat to take over in 2008. perhaps w is second worse president of all time? 

american society is not used to having "nice things". thus, it's easily assumed we'll have 45 for another term, without thinking or aiming higher. if we can't have universal healthcare, surely, 45 can win again. but to think this way is to think racism, sexism and rape are winning. they are not. people are sick and fed up. to think he's a shoe-in to be re-elected, and america is forever doomed, is a cowardly way of looking at things. too defeatist and fodder for republican right-wing assholes who fed off of liberal tears and fears.
