It is the best and worst of times for progressives and liberals. Politically, their obsessions with identity politics and various racial and gender -isms and -ologies have emasculated the Democratic party: loss of governorships, state legislatures, the House, the Senate, the presidency, and the Supreme Court.

Various aphorisms address adult liberal behavior, especially that of elected governing elites of the left.
No foolproof treatment has been discovered to date. However, knowledgeable sources recommend the following to strengthen spinal reconnection with the brain:
Those of us too old and too ordinary to take the fight to the front lines of the Capitol and the White House are counting on you, and we sent you a president who may not shine his shoes, trim his hair, and sip his tea to the time-tested standards of Congress, but his will to succeed is unquestioned. You would do well to aspire to that same goal. Full Story....Here

Narratives surrounding the DNC hack & Antifa reveal media bias and government bureaucracy at their worst. U.S. intelligence agencies said Russia was responsible for hacking Democratic National Committee e-mail accounts, leading to the publication of about 20,000 stolen e-mails on WikiLeaks. But that finding was reportedly based largely on the DNC's strange outsourcing of the investigation to a private cybersecurity firm. Rarely does the victim of a crime first hire a private investigator whose findings later form the basis of government conclusions.

[Madison, Wis...] Nic Ruffi, at the age of 12, has already learned what entrepreneurs everywhere know: Stifling regulation stops start-ups.
The Wausau tween wanted to do something more with his summer vacation than play video games and hang out. He wanted a job. He wanted to make money.
The answer: ice cream. Nic planned to sell frozen sweet treats on his three-wheeled bicycle.
His parents, owners of Ruffi Law Offices in Wausau, decided to check in with the regulators first before Nic proceeded with his ice cream American Dream. For his troubles, the would-be entrepreneur received a thick commercial vendor registration packet, replete with various rules and regulations. Nic would have to have his bicycle and his ice cream cooler inspected by the city health department, a $60 fee, and pay a permit fee - $75 for six months, $100 for a year.
But in order to get the permit, Nic's parents would have to take out an insurance policy for $1 million in liability, at a premium cost of $500. And the city required it be named as an additional insured party on the policy. Apparently the city was concerned about the possible carnage caused by a kid selling Fudgsicles from the back of his bike. Full Story....Here
