It's fine to drum up advertising. Stupid to sell your paper as a $290m mouthpiece to the Port.

Trump will use it in his toolbox of threats.

@19, right. At the dirt level there is a struggle to raise funds and activate individuals off that kind of insular and stagnating position.

The disconnect has a majority realizing how worthless the DNC has been. The demographics are moving away from them, too. It was on full display when Hillary had her supporters shame young women for supporting Sanders almost a year ago. I wasn't sure how she was going to recover, she didn't, the divide is actually part of a larger break from that group.

I think neoliberalism is going down in flames.

The line of ascension through the party until it is somebody's turn is no longer acceptable to a majority since the pool it is drawn from is shallow and ignored by most electeds that claim some kind of "leadership" position.

This is getting away from them right now.
I don't know what it will look like but it feels like the doubling of PCOs ( largely new) at the KC Dems meeting yesterday were interested in change.

A little less complaining about how bad somebody else is and a little more communicating the action of a particular policy has tangible benefits for the individual voter.

When you show the math, the state minimum wage increase was approved in Washington.

It really isn't that complex.

I think people are leaving because of dicks like you, Charles.
Your hot takes on assuming how others must think and feel, the validity of their opinions, are a fine example of the lessons learned from the presidential election.

Nobody should ever read David Brooks.

Grant's argument for a higher percentage of affordable housing required by developers could use some facts to support his opinion.
