    • The Class War the Rich Won And the End Of NeoLiberal Capitalism
      Many years ago now, I wrote a post called “There Was a Class War And %he Rich Won.” Ironically, post the financial meltdown of 07/8, and thanks to Bush, Obama, Bernanke and Geithner both bailing them out and immunizing them from their crimes, that victory has accelerated. This chart, from Harvard, tells the story of […]

Election Day Ground Zero

Pennsylvania looks like it’s breaking away in terms of who is leading but we’re not in the clear yet. 

Our organizer told us that Allegheny County is one of the most important counties in the country. If Hillary doesn’t win Allegheny County, she probably won’t win PA. And if she doesn’t win PA, well, I don’t even want to think about it. 

Another reason why PA is a special case is because 1.) we do not have early voting 2.) voter ID laws were struck down here and 3.) it’s an open carry state. That’s right, Trump motivated poll watching ammosexuals can carry their guns into the polling stations. Isn’t that special? 

The cumliminstion of these three things means that minority voters won’t be able to trickle in to a polling station early. No, we’ll all be voting on the same day, during the same hours were there will be concentrations of voters in particular spots throughout a diverse city and county. And because there is no voter ID law, the ridiculous accusations of voter fraud will get even louder. And then there are the Donald’s droogs looking for fun. 

Hell yeah I’m nervous. But it’s not going to stop me helping with the GOTV efforts. 

Nevertheless, the New York Times writes this morning that Trump is encouraging his supporters to aggressively monitor the polls. 

So, there’s that…

Update: The Washington Post wrote a beautiful, enthusiastic endorsement of Clinton based on her own merits. I read it on the bus and it brought tears to my eyes. Highly recommended.

  1. My thought is even if polling shows her leading in any given state we should work hard to run up the score. The bigger the win the more humiliated the GOP is going to be and the more willing they are going to be to “take their medicine”.

  2. Finally and surprisingly, the WaPo gives a Hillary endorsement worthy and justifiably on “her merits”.

  3. From Electoral-Vote.com: Trump voters not willing to face reality.

    I look forward to the Hitler Rants video(s) of Der Fuehrer raging at the failure of the Orange Fascist. 😈

    Never fear, Trump Chumps! Steiner–oops, Assange–will save the day! 😛

    • Because no one can wait to read the latest VladiLeaks mass dump of Hillary’s alleged e-mails–oh, wait, it looks like damn near everybody outside of the Trump Cult reacts like Renge-chan.

    • The speech last night was full on Hitler. National and international banks are conspiring to take the election away from Trump.

      • Historically, in fascist rhetoric, “International Bankers” means “Da Jooz”.

        One of the most prominent differences between the “respectable” modern (USAmerican) Right and the Alt-Right is that the Alt-Right embraces the traditional anti-Semitism of Western conservative politics, while the “respectable” Right has tried to avoid that for a few decades.
