Look, they've all forgotten the new deal. Well actually, the keynesian experiment called world war II was really what did it.
It's this forgotten period of our history and Obama is out there talking about tax relief and changing patent laws to create jobs and that kind of nonsense.
We need to start a communist party again. That's the only way the democrats get a spine.
not too much faith. i believe we have zero chance of doing it before another decade or two go by & i only think we have a chance at doing the right thing at that point. no chance for any meaningful change until the korea generation & the boomers stop voting & start dying. those two generations are over-indexed towards being hateful, racist fucks who can only conceive of supply side economics as a legitmate policy option.
Today is Seven-Eleven....ELEVEN!!
A new New Deal. You guys crack me up. What are you, 5% of the electorate like the Teabaggers?
The center rules. We like Obama.
Well, let's just say it's one reason I'm disappointed how many congresspeople haven't found a way to both gain the satisfaction of being in the right AND gain effectiveness over these many years to hammer out and pass significant bills.
Right now we're borrowing to buy things from billionaires for stupid shit we don't need and have no value other than as some sort of to-big-to-fail ransom payments.
We're stuck with the kind of democracy where we have to choose from the options on the menu, and those options are "shit sandwich" and "slightly smaller shit sandwich."
McDermott has carried the banner for single-payor health insurance and military spending cuts. Neither of them have much influence in Congress for reasons other than their opinions.
When you look at the gang of do-nothings and corporate whores that Democrats elect here, the one thing they all have in common is that they're from here. Maybe we can do better.
It doesn't matter how many terrific policy positions you have if you have no idea how to build a base under them. Kucinich doesn't WANT to build a coalition, because then he'd have to do something instead of just jabber on about it. It's so much easier to stand outside the glass commenting on what's wrong inside it. Kucinich is a soft jelly turd.
His trip to Syria was embarrassing as hell. It makes him look like a moron lickspittle dictator-fucker.
Does anyone remember back in the 60s and 70s when white girl had no ass?
It was like her back just went straight down to her legs...butts were wide, flat and pressed against the hips.
Now completely difference. Ass hang out the shorts.
That's why America is number one in the US.
Left wing Teabaggers.
And I'm still waiting for an explanation of the Assadjob in Syria.
Kucinich is not a serious person.
Judging by his last presidential run it looks like next to no one has his looney left positions.
