made you look.

"So right as I walked past the doorman to my Tribeca Condo, I looked at Mr. Woofles, my Bichon Frise

the soulful look in his eye seemed distinctly and uncharacteristically sad, despite the fact that he was wearing his favorite diamond-encrusted harness. I knew it was because he had been surfing the internet while I was at Oscar De La Renta, and he had read the many hurtful things said by Bernie Sanders supporters, the many pathologically racist, misogynist, bad bad things those bad bad people had said, because they are bad and pathologically bad and hurtful hateful terrible folk. Who drive volvos. At the same time, it hit me like a bolt of lightning; 'The middle class DO need a champion!' The simple, self-evident truth of that comprehensive and detailed policy proposal was suddenly impossible to ignore, any longer."

SO WHO'S WITH ME, FELLOW BERNIE SUPPORTERS?

If we want to win in November, you better hope you're wrong.

Yeah, and then taxpayers are on the hook providing "additional services" to people who work 40+ hrs

A week and are still below poverty level.

So we're subsidising McDonalds, etc. low pay policies and corporate profits. fuck that. If I want to subsidize mcdonalds I will buy one of their shitburgers and do it at the register.

It's not as simple as "provide value" - last time we let the unregulated free market alone determine what labor was worth in a complete regulatory vacuum, 7 year olds were put to work in coal mines and weekends didnt exist.

Isn't it interesting, THIS is what she thinks we should have a "manhattan project" for?

Not, say, finding renewable means to power our civilization, that won't cause our grandchildren to live on an overheated planet.

No, we should throw the entire might of our intellectual power to finding SOME way for cops to be able to search peoples' iphones for naughty behavior- surely, to "stop terror", of course, right?

Because whenever Law Enforcement demands super-new "terror fighting powers", that's what happens.

PATRIOT Act Warrants Used More For Drugs Than For Terrorism

Half of GD:P is threads about Hillary Clinton, the other half threads about Sen. Sanders' Supporters


Gee, that's odd.

I dont even get into it, about the "l" word, because people here are willfully disingenuous

And obtuse when it comes to labels.

My party affiliation is Democrat, my philosophical orientation is left-libertarian. Which means that, yes, i think government should avoid involving itself in the bodies, bedrooms and bloodstreams of consenting adults, for the most part. Yes, pot should be legal, and abortion, and the terminally ill should have the right to choose a pain-free exit on their own terms.

But fucking TRY to have that conversation rationally and it's "go smoke a flat tax bowl with Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand, youuuuuuuu libertarian poopy-head!"

Derp.

Nah, I dont take it seriously, not for a long time. But obviously some people, with a bunch of time on their hands, apparently- still do.

I don't think that splitting the difference on opposing marriage equality, prevented an amendment.

I think that what kept a constitutional amendment from happening is that the bar for a constitutional amendment is set pretty high, and even at their peak the power of the so-called "values voters" was vastly overinflated by the media.

If anything, a good chunk of the power they did wield at the time may have been due to the lack of inspiring, morally clear (and by this I mean, displaying moral clarity on not just support for equality, but things like opposing the iraq war, etc) leadership on our side of the aisle.

Any thread that boils down, at it's core, to "DU talking about DU" is politically useless to me.

And that applies to people who have and continute to mistakenly conflate their own personal board grudges or other grinding axes, with some larger political reality.

I dont miss meta, not THAT much.

And I dont make the mistake of thinking that people who made me mad once, are somehow representative of anything more than chafing personalities on one small corner of the intertubes.

There are people who live and breathe DU-drama, same as it ever was. People who want DU to be about DU, all the time, every day. Same as it ever was, fo' sho'.

I am not one of those people.

This response is not about, or not not about for that matter, your OP. Just a general statement.
