Black LeBaron replied to the topic 32 millionaire CEOs who scooped up taxpayer money meant for struggling small businesses in the forum General Discussion 2 months ago
I would question this sentence from the article, “The $350 billion fund was intended to rescue small businesses…” The corporate Democrats and Republicans aren’t stupid. I suspect they knew who would get the money from the law they wrote. I suspect they intended the money to go to the rich, but just wanted to trick the rubes (you and me, in th…[Read more]
Black LeBaron replied to the topic Jimmy Dore: Progressives Debate Voting Biden or Not in the forum Multimedia 2 months ago
Imagine if all Bernie Sanders primary voters had voted for the Green Party, or other progressive/left-wing parties in the 2016 general election, instead of voting for Clinton. The result would be the same: President Trump. But Clinton would have lost by a ton, about 18-20%, and the Greens and other progressives would have gotten 20% or so. The…[Read more]
Black LeBaron replied to the topic The Hardest Decision Bernie Sanders Will Make This Year in the forum General Discussion 4 months ago
Given how much the corporate Democrats hate Bernie and his policies, and that corporate Republicans are not great fans either, maybe impeachment needs to be considered? Perhaps to prevent impeachment, he should pick a VP that Pelosi and the rest would hate even more than the hate him.
For example, I doubt they would impeach Bernie if Tulsi w…[Read more]
Black LeBaron replied to the topic NO surprise, Biden won’t commit to backing Sanders if he’s the nominee By BILL BARROW 26 minutes ago in the forum General Discussion 5 months ago
I know Biden’s a total liar and nothing he says can be believed. But I am amazed at how shallow he makes himself sound here: “t depends upon how we treat one another.” In other words, he’s saying, “it doesn’t depend on what’s best for the country, it depends on whether Bernie is nice to me.”
What a shallow prick, to put his own feelings abo…[Read more]

This is a very inspiring interview with Senator Turner (starts around 52:00). The last five or so minutes is are especially great. Thanks.
Black LeBaron replied to the topic Tulsi is committed to having REPUBLICANS in her administration. in the forum General Discussion 6 months ago
I don’t know if that’s what she’s saying. At 0:22, she says “I would make that commitment” but goes on to say that the most important thing is the person’s abilities, etc. Later, at 1:02, she is asked “to clarify” if she would commit to having a Republican in her administration. This time, she does not commit, but says instead, “I will co…[Read more]
Do you believe him? I don’t. The billionaires who still own him wouldn’t allow it.
They would much rather have Trump.

This may be just more US/Fascist propaganda. Aaron Mate retweeted something saying, “More evidence that Guaido was not blocked from entering the National Assembly. He used the fact that 5 other deputies were facing criminal prosecution and barred entry as an excuse for not attending a vote he knew he would lose – all in order to disqualify it…[Read more]

I am not surprised that an establishment Dem said something against Tulsi. I was interested in this from wikipedia:
“In the August 9, 2014, Democratic gubernatorial primary, Abercrombie was defeated by state senator David Ige, taking just 31% of the vote to Ige’s 67%, making him the first incumbent governor to lose a primary in Hawaii’s…[Read more]
Impeachment, like most everything else the ruling class feeds us, is meant to divide. The British encouraged Hindu-Muslim animosity when they ruled India; the billionaires encourage left-right animosity as they rule us.
Tulsi Gabbard sees through it.

I was interested in the quotation about the guillotine. It led me to a few videos by The Coup (Fat Cats and Bigga Fish). I had never heard of these guys, but their stuff is fantastic! And later, I’ll be watching “Sorry to Bother You.”

Black LeBaron replied to the topic 'That's Ridiculous,' Says Billionaire After Sanders Campaign Returns Her $470 Donation in the forum President 8 months ago
Some supporters of Bernie had boasted that, unlike Warren, Bernie had no contributions from billionaires. I had been thinking just yesterday that if I were a billionaire who wanted to defeat Sanders, I would give him a bit of cash just to defeat that boast. I wonder if that’s why this billionaire gave the money (seems there would be little c…[Read more]

Thanks. Very informative.
I don’t see that they are centrist, unless one uses their biased definition of centrism. Support for 7 or whatever it is simultaneous wars and bases in over a hundred countries is not a centrist position. I would agree that it is not 100% partisan; they hate anyone who favors peace.

I would love Bloomberg to run. I can’t believe he would get many of Bernie’s voters, but woud instead cause the establishment votes to be split up even more. This can only help Bernie. Now, if we could only get Hillary to give it another shot.

This is a very good video–good questions, good crowd, and of course, good Bernie.
I am not clear on what “respect for the office” means–but I think I don’t have it anymore, not after the war crime and killings of Bush and Obama.
