Well Sen. Warren, Sen. Sanders, you're both on the record against Obama and Democratic Party. Nice

I have to assume that people as smart as you both are saying these things on purpose, as part of a messaging strategy. I wonder what goal that strategy is intended to achieve.

Here is my best guess:

I believe that lately you and Senator Sanders have been attempting to garner support among the mythical "Obama/Trump" voting bloc.

I also believe that this plan is a mistake. You are both chasing Bigfoot. As a factor in coming elections, that group is fairy dust - It is a media creation

Trump voters will not vote for you just because you go on the record criticizing Obama.

Attacking mainstream Dems won't make a difference either.

The folks you are playing footsy with happily picked a racist sexist criminal - Because he was better in their opinion than any Democrat - Including you and Senator Sanders.

This winking and nudging flirtation with the white supremacists and misogynists who populate the "economically anxious" is sickening, and is alienating and demotivating people who are actually willing to vote for Democrats.

A friend of mine is running for PA's 11th district

He is looking to oust a loud and proud Trumpster - Rep. Lou Barletta.

I was stationed with Alan in Japan a while back and he was one of the smartest people I've ever worked with. His accomplishments after retiring are impressive as well.

So anyone in the Carlisle area who want to take our Government away from the Trumpsters - Please get in touch with Alan, ask him policy questions, learn his background.

I feel confident that he would be an asset in Congress and would fight for the benefit of his district and his Nation.

I've been working in Asia these past 2 weeks

12 Days in the Republic of Korea and the next 4 in Japan.

While in the ROK I used the KTX high speed rail system to get around the peninsula, its very impressive. Truthfully, the whole country impressed me.

I was last on the R.O.K. 31 years ago as young newly minted Staff Sergeant. Back then the country was building maniacally to host the Summer Olympics, but the infrastructure was not great - Uneven may be the best description.

Not any more. I went to several areas in the Southeast (Pohang and Gyeongju) and Northwest to work (Incheon Seoul and Tongducheon) and I was impressed.

Back to the train though - How would you like to live in a nation where you can go 256 miles in 2 hours 15 minutes for $70. Comfortably, safely and with tasty snacks? Hahaha. We can't...

We can't because Republicans say we can't - there is no other reason. It's a tired trope that remains true, government can't work if half of the government is sabotaging everything.

The only time the GOP cares about infrastructure is when they can shovel pork filled contracts to their donors.

Every time I travel to functional nations I want to cry about the state of our great nation - being crippled by a willfully ignorant greedy cabal more interested in establishing a hereditary Gentry/Serf feudal society than it is about moving us forward
