The Democrats are experiencing yet another attack of their progressive wing. This time they have decided to wreck the infrastructure thing by insisting that they have their way, in all things. Oh, and on the way, put another nail in the coffin of the Democratic party for next year.

If one is a Democrat one would think that party might have some with power to tamp that one down, and REALLY start to work on next year's election (of which the tamping would be one, probably important part). The real trick, in our political system, is to gain ownership of both the Senate and the House. If they can do that THEN they can start trying for the moon. Right now they should a plan not designed to turn off the entire voting middle. Anybody thinks they have even a slight chance, right now, for their needs, wants, and wins would be, I think, an expert in wishful thinking.

Think about it. Wouldn't be nice if the Dems understood that the whims of the progressive Dems and had the capacity to sit them down and explain that if they didn't win the Senate AND the house with more than 1 to 10 votes then whatever they wanted would be forever out of their ability to get ANYTHING done! Now think about the entire Democratic party agreeing on the basic messages of the entire party. Doesn't mean no local stuff - just a demonstration of their capacity, and their ability, to outclass the loons of the right. That would include an educational effort for some of the slower victims of Trump. The Right has been working, very hard to make sure the Dems recognize but they just can't seem to grasp the importance of what they are given, that their opponents just keep on demonstrating their capacity to lie, to cheat, to rebel, and dote of a man who has one the award as the Very Worst President and Businessman that America has ever produced, and run with it!

Unfortunately the Dems just can't seem to come together in any meaningful way. Most the the talking heads of TV think that and the Dems are losing and the Dems just keep on reinforcing that.

One can only hope but, so far, they have done a magnificent job of shooting the hell out of their own feet. They gotta start understanding they have win to succeed and fairy tales and wishful thinking just isn't gonna cut it.

They don't know with certainty, but just the fact that they are afraid it might be the case is enough.
And thus Loggy is being denied the kind of access he needs to get bio-char at or near Priority One.
Thanks for the kind words, Señor J. Furry!

I would like to give a somewhat different take on the lack of access (which is all too true) - the obstacles I have run into aren't generally fear or greedy protectionism - it's that people, especially powerful ones, think they know the most already, and aren't receptive to ideas that they are unfamiliar with. Or they have some preconceived standards for what a good idea looks like. In the case of global warming and forest fires, they think solutions should be humongous and nearly instantaneous. That's a job for the Big Boys! Big money, big industry, big donations, and BIG GASLIGHTING!!!

They are not intelligent enough, or informed enough to even begin to understand the problems, so the innovative solutions are invisible to them.

But they get to make the decisions.

Slavery was a much bigger issue than same-sex marriage or abortion or minimum wage increases
So you think that is what {{{{{{{THE BASE}}}}}}} is all about .... hmmmm.

I am pretty sure it is not issue oriented. While shoving issues to the forefront is a tactic to distract, I suspect in this case what we have is a religious affront. The Lord and Savior of America, whom everyone loves and adores, was humiliated by Democrat Party {{{{{{{fraud}}}}}}. While not an issue like slavery, the impact is every bit as devastating.

1860? ... I think we are so close to being in the same position that I can smell the gunpowder from the cannons bombarding Ft Sumter.
