Almost Pulled The Plug

On Saturday, I was whacked out after my girlfriend gave me a thorough talking-to about how I need to think more broadly about employment opportunities (which she's right about) and to keep the blog going as a hobby. I then decided that on Sunday morning I would pull the plug on the blog and take it down for good, and instead go for an insurance license so that I could take ownership of my family's insurance brokerage. The thought in my head at the time was it was time to face the music, and instead of pursuing a crapshoot pipe-dream, and accept the fact that I needed to sell insurance policies for the rest of my life. Here are some open secrets about why I would fail in doing that:
  1. I'm terrible at standardized tests and would probably do poor on the tests to first get the license and then the CE (Continuing Education) tests for its annual renewal
  2. I'm too honest and can't bullshit people for the life of me
  3. I don't have a seller's mentality
  4. I get frustrated way too easily, especially when filling out forms
  5. I don't have the patience to deal with the insurance companies when they try to weasel out of doing their job
  6. I find insurance to be exceedingly depressing
Luckily, both she and my mom were able to talk me out of it as it's still up and functioning, but I need to find a way to get some means of an income. 

1968 Is The Wrong Comparison For 2020

I have no patience for those voices who claim that 1968 is the year for us to compare 2020 to in terms of dynamic similarities, as it's the wrong analogy. The right election years to compare 2020 to are 1980 and 1992. 1980 and 1992 were years of immense change in how certain regions had aligned themselves politically. Some states, like California. were Republican-leaning swing states prior to 1992; while others, such as Texas, had been Democratic-leaning swing states prior to 1980. 2020 is shaping up to be a year along those same dynamics again.

Bad News That's Going To Plague Joe Biden

The MeToo movement has taken center stage yet again in this year's presidential campaign, and not in a way that's going to help Joe Biden become our next plausible president in November's election. As shown below on Krystal Ball's discussion on The Hill's YouTube channel, the media trying to downplay Tara Reade's credible case of being sexually violated by Biden when he was a Senator back in 1993. Ball was interviewing Juanita Brodrrick about her experience with Bill Clinton, and the similarities and differences with Rede's experience. And on top of that, Broadrrick also informed Ball that she had spoken with Reade on the phone and found Rede's cantation of the event was credible. You can watch for yourself below:



However, that's not Biden's only problem. As Kyle Kulinski points out on his talk show Secular Talk, 51% of Bernie Sanders' base has indicated that they'll likely vote for either a  3rd party or independent candidate, or not vote at all in this year's election. Take a moment to let this sink in, as a good chunk of that base is under the age of 45, a group whose votes Biden needs if his push to unseat President Donald Trump is to be successful. As Kulinski clearly explains, this voting demographic is very clear and consistent in their position that returning to business as usual is not the way to go once Trump's no longer in office. You can find the segment here:



Both of these problems, should they continue going unaddressed, will only hand Trump a 2nd term. Democrats are most likely going to blame the very people whose votes they needed to win for Trump's victory by not turning out. While their accusation will be correct, it also glosses over a whole other problem. This problem is their lack of credibility, as people are just as fed up with their triangulation and bothsidesism ideology as they are with the Republicans' trickle-down economics lie and constant race-baiting to distract from their con job.

Even if an investigation into Reade's accountings exposed that she lied, the fact is that Biden's viability as a candidate would already have been compromised; and another candidate would have to run as his replacement, a candidate with no political base. Dynamics dictate that Biden's replacement on the ticket will most likely be Hillary Clinton. And if she ran this time around, she'd likely lose in a landslide as the electorate had made clear the point of NO MORE CLINTONS back in 2016.

Entitlement

Here's a video of my thoughts at being accused of being entitled to a specific candidate.



Just a minor head's up, the sound quality isn't the best. Sorry, the microphone doesn't exactly mute the background fan noise on my laptop.

Banned from Daily Kos



Looks like my last piece on Daily Kos struck a raw nerve, apparently enough to get me banned from posting on the site. I'm not complaining, though I will say I'm quite disappointingly unsurprised. I can see how it the last article I wrote could be seen as trolling, but I can honestly say that wasn't the case. I'll see if I can get this cleared up in some form or another, and let moderation staff know that it was definitely an error on my end. If I can't post anything else there, so be it. I'll just ask them to close the account. I have no ill will to the site, as I said, I'm more saddended than pissed.

Please don't (and I emphasize DON'T) go over to Daily Kos and rip them (and their moderator team) for placing this ban on me. It's not their fault, it's entirely mine as I got careless tonewise. As I said before, I'll deal with this on my own.

I'll be livestreaming a further explanation on YouTube, and will paste on here when it's ready for anyone who wants to rewatch.
