We're now one of those countries that should have the UN step in and monitor elections.

@6 typical moderate thinking: we should kowtow to conservative ideology because otherwise people might become upset and vote conservative

@11 because Democrats have no message and are too scared to actually fight for any progress or social good lest they upset the nazis?

also, punching yourself in the dick is a great American past time

I should point out the marital status of the beaver has not been confirmed.

A lot of beavers are common law, of course.

@2:

And had cops stopped killing Black people without any justification, there would have been no protests, so...

As for voter demographics, well 92% of Blacks voted for Biden in 2020, which was actually an increase over the 89% who voted for Clinton in 2016, so whatever Drumph's 2016 stats may have been, they didn't improve by more than a blip. And while the number of Hispanic voters did increase - very slightly - for Drumph in 2020 over 2016, Biden still managed to win over a slightly larger majority (66%) than Clinton did (65%) four years previously. Drumph's gain was due to an increase in the total number of Latinx voters in 2020, mainly among those with less-than-college education, and with Cuban Americans in South FL, so not really demonstrative of a widespread national groundswell.

Nationalizing industry is something that happens in banana republics. You really don't want the President thinking in terms of that kind of exercise of power.

"Maybe once literally anyone involved with the decision to tear gas a whole-ass neighborhood faces some meaningful consequences, we can move on. Until then, check out KUOW's effort to get people to pay attention to Carolyn Bick’s excellent reporting on former Chief Carmen Best’s casual relationship with the truth."

Sounds like the Chair of Seattle City Council's Public Safety Committee should have that committee issue subpoenas, call witnesses, and get the persons involved on the record. That might help get the actual story told. Anyone at the Stranger have that CM's telephone number?

(Oh, and Ace Reporter Bick spent not one, but two recent columns completely failing to understand that Seattle's City Charter and laws do not authorize the Seattle Human Rights Commission to hire independent counsel. You see, the Commissioners kept telling her they could, and the City Attorney's office kept telling those same Commissioners they could not, so what was a reporter to do, really? Read the laws? Check facts?!? Snicker.)

either Nationalize or
Recession* which 'repubs''d
Relish 'cause Whisk there goes Biden &

*perhaps a Windfall Profits Tax?
it's been Done before why
not right Now?

@19, a majority of Americans want things like increased minimum wage, medicare for all, free community college. it's not a progressive unicorn wishlist, it's what the people want. and that hasn't been delivered. and I think you and I would both agree most Americans probably dont ID as progressive.

the things you mentioned are good for sure. but they were the bare minimum requirements to keep this country sort of functioning. and even so, no one seems to be campaigning on these achievements. why?

yo someone needs to fix the caching on your server/site.
comments disappear and reappear at random.
been like this a couple weeks.

31

until i posted that comment @30, it looked like there were zero comments. none of them loaded until i posted.

@19:

That's probably because you have the attention span of a small piece of crumpled paper...

Yes, let's nationalize the oil industry. I mean what could possibly go wrong?

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/07/world/americas/venezuela-oil-economy-maduro.html

I also want to say I love that The Stranger has the spokesperson for the city attorney candidate who ran on a platform of ACAB and abolishing the police writing commentary on public safety matters. I'm sure he has no bias at all and we should take everything he writes at face value.

34

oh we cannot Nationalize
BIG Fucking OIL 'cause we'll
turn into fucking Venezuela?

that's the Sole Option?
fuck off with that Shite

although I 'spose we could settle
for a Windfall Profits Tax
I bet you've got a dann
fine Reason why we
shouldn't do
that as
well?

Does it
involve
Cuba?

38

@34 yes that is exactly right. There is no reality where nationalizing "big oil" will not result in massive underinvestment in the industry leading to eventual production declines and stagnation. Energy production is already politicized heavily and allowing the government direct control over business decisions would only result in massive inefficiency and decisions based more on political expediency than what is actually best for that industry and the country.

As for the windfall profits I take that with a grain of salt. I am surprised these companies are reporting record revenues when oil prices are through the roof? No. I am surprised they have massive growth coming out of a period when many people weren't driving and gas usage was down? No. I'd be more interested in knowing if their profit margin has shifted. Reporting record revenue is meaningless if you are also reporting record increases in costs of goods sold.
