Trump can release his taxes now. His line that he can’t because he is under audit is just wrong. It's always been wrong.

And he paid just $750 in 2016 in federal income taxes and $750 in 2017 and zero in 11 of 18 years the NYT looked at. Everyone knows this.

Quote of the Day:

“When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong – faster and faster and faster.

I’ve heard from people that they want a reason to vote FOR Biden beyond the fact that he's not Trump. I respect that. So here's 75 reasons to vote for #JoeBiden that don't have anything to do with Trump.

1. $15.00 federal minimum wage
2. Reinstate DACA – allowing new applicants to apply
3. 12 weeks federal paid family leave
4. Universal pre-kindergarten/childcare for ages 3 and 4
5. Tuition-free college for those with household incomes less than $125,000 #Vote #BidenHarris2020 THREAD 1/15

Quote of the Day:

“Never before did I realize that mental illness could have the aspect of power. Power. Think of it: perhaps the more insane a man is, the more powerful he could become. Hitler for example. Makes the old brain reel, doesn’t it?”

Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Sometimes I need to contemplate things other than the monster in the White House.

Such as, if my wide asks me to clip my toe nails because they stab her at night, why did the good Lord make them so difficult to get at to accomplish this simple task.

I still say "fuck you NBC" - for putting tRump on live at the same time as our future president will be on live.
