Ohio Barbarian replied to the topic Green Party twitter account suppressed without reason in the forum General Discussion 1 month ago
@rampart Now that is an amusing thought. The irony of it is, if Trump insisted on him being on the debate stage, the DNC would probably refuse to let Biden participate in protest. Maybe Jesse could ride up on his Harley.

RufusTFirefly replied to the topic An elegant definition of "populism" — and a question in the forum General Discussion 2 months ago
I’m with you. I don’t think “power to the people” should be ceded to the Right.
Also, there have been some pretty interesting collaborations between left- and right-wing populists. Director Frank Capra, a right-wing populist, teamed up with Robert Riskin, a left-wing populist, to make some classic Hollywood movies.
More recently,…[Read more]

@rampart Let me tell you something. Joe Biden is directly responsible for costing me over $8000 by his bankruptcy reform. Debt that would have been liquidated before I have to pay back now, plus court fees went up exponentially. Joe Biden is responsible for my wife being unable to work without her pay being garnished because she took out student…[Read more]

@rampart Unfortunately, the last time I looked, Pelosi had 72% in the primary. That does not bode well for the general.

@rampart Do you think if she was rich, she would have been stripped in jail for this offense?
@rampart My alma mater’s Texas. Longhorns. I don’t give a damn about Ohio State, and frankly the adoration they get up here is annoying sometimes, but I do know a championship caliber college team when I see one and the Buckeyes certainly fit the description this year.
College sports is the one area where I let my anti-Southern bias come out and…[Read more]
Mr. Mickeys Mom replied to the topic Barbarian at the Gates: How Vichy Democrats have made impeachment unimportant in the forum Weekly Posts by JackPine Radicals 6 months ago
@rampart (any further discussion will no doubt have to occur at CS), but since OB, who is so well-read on other topics, has yet devoted the necessary time to understand forensics of 11/22/1963. He, therefore, can’t properly weigh in on a topic that is outside of his belief system. Let’s just leave it at that, and continue it over “there”.

@rampart I’m replying to this only because I started the thread. I’m in the minority here, and I’m not going to debate this topic. I’m just going to say I’m convinced the CIA had absolutely no reason at the time to kill JFK, that he was in fact killed by a lone gunman, that RFK lied about what happened in the Cuban Missile Crisis(proven facts: RFK…[Read more]

@rampart no doubt. but to have a courtesan of wall street say it? let’s get it on the fucking platform even if biden is the damn nominee!
“that generation had to pass before these reactionaries, of both parties, could try to take that away”.
Most excellently said. These reactionaries (I prefer the word fascists) are the true regressives, stifling human progress and human evolution at the same time.
Those who don’t learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it.
@rampart It is unquestionably true that the New Deal saved capitalism. Interestingly enough, it was attacked as socialist by the conservatives of the time, and it certainly had socialist components.
Huey Long was a corrupt motherfucker and a demagogue. I don’t know if I’d call him “left.” That said, I’m no expert on him, either.

They already have a DNA database. Ancestry shares its DNA records with the police/government. Not sure about 23 and me. But I notice you would have a real difficult time getting an anonymous DNA readout, because they intend for the police and insurance companies to use the databases. IMO.

I was factoring in that neither the CIA nor the FBI seems to like Trump. They prefer subservient accomplice presidents, not loose cannons. See JFK. But – Trump did not seem to be actually near as involved with Epstein as Clinton. And Trump, like all rich businessmen, likely has an innate caution switch, because of lawsuits and big…[Read more]
No, no pass. Warren was asked about how she felt as a Republican – she was a Republican until 49-50 years old. This is a typical dissembling evasive Warren non-answer. There really is no reason, any more, to believe anything Warren says about anything. And there is a “tell”, IMO, when she does not want to answer a question. Warr…[Read more]
