@sorechasm Yet another example of why liberals are so hated. That pisses ME off and I’m socialist.

Technically that painting contains a host of non-resident voters.
I do not put it past Trump to seek litigation against our founding fathers.

@sorechasm Interesting how Politico focused so much on that guy; maybe they figure he comes across as crazy so most of their readers will dismiss the whole article as fringe-worthy. People living in the DC bubble certainly will.
However, there’s just too much corroborating evidence, from gun-seller statistics to gun store owners to gun ranges…[Read more]

somewhere in the mid to late 60s stories of corruption became supposedly more ‘realistic’ (as a cultural rule, not that there weren’t corruption stories before, but generally corruption was vanquished one way or another)…
happy endings left to kids, and then only briefly, as darker stories took over in YA (has anyone noticed the…[Read more]
@sorechasm Unless you consider a real revolution a good thing, for that is highly possible after a couple of years of neoliberal kleptocracy, and I think that’s what we’re going to get. More austerity, more war, more greed run rampant and subsidized by people like you and I against our will.
I’m not going to get all passionate about it because…[Read more]
@sorechasm They liked Bernie because he both offered them tangible thing to improve their material living conditions AND had a track record of consistency and honesty, and thus had integrity. They were willing to take a chance on Bernie even if they disagreed with him on some major cultural issue, like abortion.
That’s because, as my dad would…[Read more]
These individuals are officials but not elected. They deal with everyday losses I would guess.

@sorechasm At least, he may make a revolution more likely. If he does little to nothing to help people, things may well get desperate enough in a year or two for a French-style Revolution to take place. The civil war would come after the federal government falls, and the Old Guard fights to try to restore it.
It’s way too early to tell yet, and…[Read more]
@sorechasm They go strictly by “likely voter” polls, which means those polled voted in the 2018 midterms as well as the 2016 presidential elections. They don’t take into account the “Trump bump” such polls miss, which is very real. They also don’t take voter enthusiasm into account. Trump’s supporters are more likely to vote than those who say…[Read more]

Most Democratic voters are boomers and older. Most don’t get their news from progressive alternate media. They get it from corporate news and maybe Facebook. If it’s the latter, it depends on whom their “friends” are. There’s plenty of DNC propaganda available there as well. @sorechasm
Two way street replied to the topic Bernie Sanders walks into the lion's den, and fails to beard the lion in the forum General Discussion 2 years ago
@sorechasm Good actions. Bernie seems to be stunned. He said he contacted Obama after the Super Tuesday vote. We need to know more about what was said because Bernie seems to be supporting Joe somewhat. We have the right to know why Bernie moved a tad to the Center. Amy, Buttigieg, and the others, except Tulsi, are supporting Joe.…[Read more]

Ohio Barbarian replied to the topic Why the Democratic Establishment Can’t Stand Rashida Tlaib in the forum General Discussion 2 years ago
@sorechasm Indeed. Working class people under 50 or so have developed class consciousness, to which politicians like Rashida and Bernie appeal. The current Democratic establishment has never had to deal with an organized class conscious movement that is challenging it before.

@sorechasm If mainstream politicians didn’t sell out their own people to the highest corporate bidders, they wouldn’t be losing to demagogues of any political stripe.
