On this issue, I am not..

and I think anyone who thinks Mr. Cloobeck's demands are about billionaire "hurt feelings" rather than his own economic interests is very naive.

As for the idea that he "must believe in fairness to some extent or he'd be donating to the GOP"...No again, I'm afraid. Do you not know that the wealthy frequently donate to BOTH parties?...It's called "hedging your bets" -- Donald Trump has donated to Democrats so often he's been called a "Democrat"...What do you think of his sense of "fairness"?

There's a name for people like Cloobeck's and it's not "Democrat",
it's Libertarian...Libertarians describe themselves as liberal on social issues and conservative on economic ones -- Most Dems call them "Republicans who want to smoke pot and get laid".

As for some "resolution" with doners, I'm afraid I disagree again
. Bernie Sanders showed us a Democrat with a winning message AND good campaign skills doesn't need to placate the wealthy or use corporate cash for campaign financing. His campaign was entirely funded by private doners, and it can be done again.

So Cloobek has ordered Dems to stop saying the word "Billionaire"?

He can go fuck himself -- He's no democrat.. In fact there ARE no Democrats without support for economic justice, and yes, that means calling out Billionaires for stealing the
nation's wealth through Tax Giveaways and cuts to everything from Public Schools to Medicare

Economic and social justice is what the whole friggin: party is based on...These people want to float on social issues only -- Why?.. because those don't COST them anything.


P.S. We already have a "party of business" -- It''s called the GOP.

Good.for you...You did exactly the right thing!

Could Morning Joe's Mark Halperin get any more disgusting?

He showed his true colors to me during the Shrekeli "Pharma bro"
controversy.

While everyone on the MJ set loudly, and denounced the little pig for his 1000% profit on a life -saving drug, I recall Halperin saying zilch...What he DID object to, was a follow up criticism of Shrekeli:s purchase of some obscenely priced music memorabilia.with his ill-gotten gain. .What upset Halperin, as he said, was criticizing Shrekeli's "right" to buy what he wished. He viewed this as an attack on Property Rights, which to him, it seems, outweigh Human Rights.

If that wasn't bad enough, he's now furthering his RW tool image by 'dissenting" with criticism of Trump's hideous handling of the calls to the families of fallen soldiers by saying "it doesn't help anyone".

Right -- Just keep waiting for your tax cuts, you soulless prick.

I Can't BELIEVE what I just heard from GOPers on Morning Joe..

Upon being asked "what can we do" about mass shootings in the wake of Vegas, George Will and Oklahoma Rep Tom Cole ruled out ANY increase in restrictions or safety measures, answering, "nothing", essentially..

While this doesn't surprise me terribly, the tone of their response suggested the question itself was a bit presumptuous.."Well, no" Will said, rather huffily, as he blamed a "culture" that actually expected a solution to a problem like this..."Government can't do everything"!, he said.. ..You almost had to HEAR their bluff dismissal of the possibility -- the apparent preposterousness of expecting anything to be done... Seriously. -- I wanted to scream "What the fuck Is government FOR, then?!?

I WISH I could provide a clip of it, as I am gobsmacked to the point that my mouth is STILL open twenty minutes after hearing it.

If someone can provide a clip, please do, as I think others will find this as outrageous and mind blowing as I. :

.and after Hefner, women are STILL being called 'sluts"

and *whores" for doing the same things men do!....How "liberating".!

btw, it's easy NOT being "uptight" when you:re not the target of such slurs, not to mention some other vulnerabilities like pregnancy, rape, etc. .. Just sayin'.

I'm not sure if I'm not "getting it"

or if it's just not relevant to this conversation about Jewish maternity.

I'm sure she had a "say", but he may have pressured her

or even given her an "ultimatum" -- convert or I won't marry you. I heard Steven Spielberg did this to his second wife. I would have told him to to pound sand, but that's just me.

Anyone just hear Prof. Turley on Morning Joe say impeaching Trump was "dangerous"?

rather than it being dangerous to leave him in office?

His reasons sounded extremely lame...His first point was that impeaching him would "be like Great Britain's vote of no confidence".
that it would be "lowering the standard for impeachment"...Huh? I thought we already DID that with Bill Clinton.

Basically, he was acting as if there was, at this point, no "reason" or reasons to impeach him, to which I say "Huh"? again.

What REALLY pissed me off was that none of the "guests" -- Joe and Mila were off -- pushed back on him, including Howard Dean, who made a small noise about Trump frequently "not telling the truth", but that was it. I was dumbfounded. Even though I know Turley leans Right AND that this opinion comes BEFORE the results of the Mueller investigation, I can't believe that Trump has committed no visibly "impeachable" offenses.

Anyone want to weigh in?
