Democratic voters in Missouri went to the polls on Tuesday and ejected another longtime incumbent from federal office. This has become a trend—one that suggests the Democratic Party is undergoing an ideological makeover, and that process is being driven from below. It looks like the Democratic Tea Party they said could never happen is upon us.

    This really is becoming a nation of children who think the adults who made a life for themselves have held everyone else back.

    OT: medcram is a great YouTube channel that is covering the covid virus. Today they have a doctor from Harvard who says there is a cheap, inexpensive and quick at home virus test that people can take every day.
    He says the FDA is holding up approval because of various reasons. Would be great if Trump was aware of this test. Sounds like it is a test that people can take everyday to find out immediately if they are infectious or not.

    The primary issue that spawned the Tea Party was excessive government spending. Now, almost no one Congress considers it a major issue. Even before the current recession, cutting spending was not a priority.

    The Tea Party was a great movement in its day, but the remaining people who still use the name in an organization are either cranks, or fundraising scammers.
