Biden must have some major impulse control issues. At this point, he must realize that his behavior is an issue. And yet he can’t help himself.
One of these days, Jill is going to be waiting at the door with a frying pan or a rolling pin.
Either that or the parent or partner of one his victims is going to react instinctively to…[Read more]

@stockholmer Agreed. The Lib Dems, or should I say British Nancy Pelosis?, didn’t help.
Ohio Barbarian replied to the topic Why all progressives should support Cenk Uygur for Congress in the forum General Discussion 1 month ago
@stockholmer Don’t count Cenk out. He’s rapidly raising money, has the most individual donors by far in that race, and over a thousand volunteers. If he raises $1 million, I think he’ll win.
His district is in Orange County, which has seen a marked decline in disposable incomes for most residents over the last 20 years or so. It’s also very…[Read more]
“Hedges is selling snake oil (especially the myth of the American mass street uprising in numbers sufficient to cause a revolution, which is as likely as me shitting out daily bricks of gold starting in the new year.)”

Me too @stockholmer
You know, think about this: California tells everyone that they are the 4th or 5th largest economy on Earth; yet, every day is new disaster there – homelessness, typhoid, mudslides, brush fires, opioid addiction and deaths, violent crime. If it’s such a great place to live, why is everyone eager to zone out on drugs? Um, an…[Read more]

@stockholmer (evil chuckle) And there’s the NYT’s defense if Cenk does sue their ass–But we corrected the story!
A nice, but somewhat misleading description or
one lacking the most important factors, imo. A
capitalist system is eo ipso non-democratic. It is
ruled by the oligarchs, who acquire the necessary
power. Many of the social issues are driven by them
to the rule “divide and conquer”. Otherwise the whole
alphabet institutions serve…[Read more]
Yep, Democracy is dead (has been for decades) and this country is headed to its second civil war. The writing’s on the wall.
IF BERNIE IS FUCKED OVER AGAIN.
And it sure is looking like that’s their plan.
If he’s not the President, it’s game over for the “United” States of America.

@stockholmer I could not agree more. IMO, the only reason the Empire is not at war with Iran is because the Pentagon’s own war games have shown that it would be horrendously costly to the US military. In one scenario, the American general playing the Iranians managed to sink three aircraft carriers in one day and shoot down I don’t know how many…[Read more]
@stockholmer took a lot of time to explain the difference between neoliberals and neoconservatives. Then you come back with this Eurocentric nonsense, and you’re in Europe, which makes it downright funny.
Like it or not, you are on an American board. If you want to confuse people, go right ahead with your own anarcho-fringe…[Read more]
Wow! That is one seriously thoughtful, insightful, and poignant analysis.
On Edit: Thank you. I am bookmarking this thread because of your post. So glad someone else sees this, too.
@stockholmer Thank you.

@Stockholmer Good to see you again. Biden should have been locked up along with Shillary. Not a popular position at this site.
If Bernie is out, IMO that means that Warren or Biden or whoever else the DNC really wants is IN. I doubt that Bernie would be out during the primaries, unless the DNC has some really masterful rigging and cheating in place. If Bernie is out for some reason before the Florida primary, I will not bother voting unless there is so…[Read more]
@stockholmer With all due respect, expat Englishman in Sweden, you sound like an old, comfortable boomer on SV saying the term “socialist” is a political killer. It’s not anymore in this country. You are living in the past. This is a relatively recent change, but it has already happened.
The political killer word for 2020 will be “corrupt,” not…[Read more]
While “socialism” is a system based around replacing private ownership of the means of production with social ownership, which generally means having the workers own and operate them instead — either through cooperatives or the state — Bernie hasn’t shown much of an interest in using the government to promote this change.[Read more]
