Opinion | Political Ad Attacking AOC: ‘Beyond the Pale’ – The New York Times

It was therefore beyond appalling to me to see those horrific images used on a supposed “political ad” on ABC during the Democratic debate Thursday night. ABC — until now — has been my channel of choice for the nightly news. I cannot understand how this organization would allow such an offensive ad by a political action committee — regardless of how much was paid for it or which party it was supposed to represent. Is this what we can expect now for the remainder of this endless pre-election period? What have we come to as a nation that this can be considered acceptable?

Open Thread | Taking Away SNAP Benefits…Because The Cruelty IS the Point of This Administration😠😠😠 | 3CHICSPOLITICO

Their cruelty aside, once again, they haven’t thought things through. Sure, they will hurt ‘ those people’, but, the bottom line is that SNAP is nothing but another FARMER WELFARE PROGRAM. …and a federal subsidy for WALMART. The farmers might not care, after all, he’s bankrupting them, and destroying their overseas markets, and they still support him. Let him destroy their domestic market too….but, he’ll be hurting ‘ the right people’, so they’re cool with it. But, WALMART…. The amount of funds they will lose if they lost the SNAP benefits. It is quite obvious that SNAP benefits are beneficial to the economy, because, this is money that is immediately spent and put back into our economy. We’ve already seen the signs of a slowing economy. Take away the buying power of 3.6 MILLION people….you don’t think that won’t have a negative ripple effect upon the economy? But, as always….THE CRUELTY IS THE POINT.

Joe Biden Confronted by Katie Eder at CNN Climate Town Hall

The youth of America aren’t particularly keen on Joe Biden, a fact that was on full display during Wednesday night’s CNN Climate Town Hall. Biden’s portion of the night kicked off with a question from 19-year-old Katie Eder, the executive director of the youth-led organization Future Coalition, who very nicely asked why the hell anyone under the age of 40 should trust him or anyone else of his generation.
