    I hope the Biden campaign is flooding the purple markets – especially in Florida, Arizona and North Carolina with update about Social Security

    I could go on, and on, and on
    No one really cares.
    People already getting Social Security payments feel untouchable (they're not)
    Americans under 40 have become convinced SS is going away anyway.
    The the rest of us are a mix of not paying attention, it could never happen and a few assholes like me.  (Yes, my senators and representative know)

    My oldest brother died last night. He didn’t know he had colon cancer ’til the rusted spot blew out. Septic shock was actually the cause of death. They dropped him into a coma Sunday to put him on a ventilator and he didn’t come back. I guess I’m glad he went quickly rather than dying slowly of the cancer.

    A pricy day.  Wife and I sent Act Blue donations to Mitsch Bush, Hick, DNC, DSCC, Biden and DCCC.

    Except for Mitsch Busch and Hick, we’re done with individual out of state races.  DSCC and DCCC can triage them.

    Strive On, Democrats.  Hurl back the Fascist hordes.

    Thanks for all the kind notes, everyone. heart I think the shock is starting to wear off and it’s sinking in. But persevere, we must. There’s an election to be won and scoundrels to pry out of their seats.cheeky On to November!
