    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Getting shit done in congress is EXTREMELY difficult when you don't even get the support of your own party (I know he is technically an independent lol) and you have to fight against the billions of dollars of lobbyist cash. If Sanders becomes the Democratic nominee and eventually the President he wouldn't have to worry about raising enough money to get on the right committees. He would be the leader of his party and he could use the Bully Pulpit much more effectively against the Pelosi's and the Schumer's of the world. The power brokers in the DNC are holding meetings trying to figure out how to stop Bernie Sanders. I think that should do a lot to show you what the guy is up against.

    1. Sanders has passed more ammendments than any other senator in US History 2. As mayor he created a land trust in Burlington which allowed people to have affordable housing 3. He also voted against BOTH Iraq Wars but you did give him credit for that. 4. He voted AGAINST NAFTA 5. He has a long record of supporting gay rights and was way ahead of the curve on this 6. He's been fighting for cheaper prescriptions since 1999 and he continues to fight for that even reaching across the aisle to do so 7. He protected people's pensions from IBM 8. He voted AGAINST the Clinton deregulation of wall street which wrecked our economy ten years later. 9. He voted AGAINST the Patriot Act 10. He amended the 2009 recovery bill to ensure that laid off US workers could not be replaced low wage foreigners and that was with Chuck Grassley, a Republican 11. He fought against Obama and the Republicans to make the ACA a little bit less shitty with amendments that protected consumers 12. He tried to audit the fed in 2010 with Ron Paul 13. in 2013 he fought against cutting benefits to veterans on the veterans affairs committee 14. in 2013 Sanders introduced legislation to break up the banks. Being that most of the politicians in the country are owned by the banks it didn't go far. 15. Sanders voted AGAINST the Keystone XL Pipeline 16. 2016 Sanders tried to ban private prisons 17. Sanders is also really the one man who made it a taboo to except big donations for his campaign which is just fucking massive.

    What? lol Bernie has done A LOT. He's actually even worked with your guy Rand Paul on bail reform and drug pricing. He's going at Amazon and Walmart and it all goes all the way back to his political activism in the civil rights era. You know how difficult it is to get anything done that actually helps people.

    Bernie Sanders has severely pissed me off a bunch of times the last couple years since he bent the knee. I don't agree with him on everything, nor do I with Tulsi BUT those two things are just really big gripes for me. I feel like his dishonesty on the UBI/automation thing is meant to deceive people and I think his comments about misinformation are EXTREMELY dangerous.

    I just saw his town hall. I mean, I can see why you would like him this whole UBI thing seems like a head fake for him to cut entitlement programs like social security, food stamps and day care and stuff. He's also very disingenuous about the automation thing. He said we lost all those jobs to automation and not trade deals? Nah bro. I do not like Yang AT ALL. Oh and how could I forget. He wants the FBI to jail journalists and regulate journalists. Big fat fuck no to this dude. "CNN gets it right 99% of the time." Talking about punishing people for misinformation. Nah Bro.

    It's the same thing that was done with the telephone companies and the railroad companies. Trust busting is something that Theordore Roosevelt did. What the alternative? You already know what that is and it's fucking scary. It's something that human beings and life as we know it on this planet can't survive. It's Monarchy. It's royalty and divine right. Trust busting was without question the correct policy move. Free markets are as much of a figment of your imagination as the tooth fairy. History tells us what happens with true(or as true as it gets) lassiez faire economies. 19th century America was as lassiez faire as it gets and that's the reason why we have labor unions. People died to gain the rights we have. In a libertarian system you don't have a say. You don't have enough money to have a say. You don't own enough stock. Say what you want about socialism/government but you have a vote. There is a path. Lassiez Faire isn't a meritocracy or democracy. It's not about who has the best ideas. Lassiez Faire is feudalism eventually. Once the classes are established divine right becomes who has the most money. Libertarianism is materialism. It has no practicality. It's why people are destroying the planet to maximize the profit for the next quarter so they don't get voted out by the shareholders. It's why people have no vision for the next generation or ten years down the road (and if they do they're voted out by the stock holders lol.). It's consumerism and mindlessness and I reject that notion that profit or having more than the next man is the purpose of human existence and our sole motivating factor in life. It's weird though because it's also liberal and in a lot of ways but fucking A economically y'all have been duped.

    https://theintercept.com/2019/04/01/elizabeth-warren-tech-regulation-2020/ Say what you want about Elizabeth Warren but she's bringing up an issue that nobody else is talking about and she definitely deserves credit for that. I would love to see Sanders and Tulsi address this question too. I'm pretty excited about these debates. Hopefully they're not hijacked by bullshit Russiagate stuff and talking about Trump the whole time. We really need to look at who has control over this data and how they're allowed to use it. We also really need to look at how Amazon hosts the market place and competes in it and uses all kinds of dirty tricks to undercut the competition. I don't use Amazon, man. Fuck them.

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    How crazy would it be for them to knock out the Warriors? If that happens they're getting whoever they want in free agency. Hell, if they take GS to 6 the might get whoever they want.

    You know it's funny, Than calls me a conspiracy theorist and then posts some Twitter feed of some dude leaping to a bunch of conclusions with no evidence. He talked to people who know some people? He released info after the access Hollywood tape. Didn't he announce he was going to release the information before the Access Hollywood tape came out? As for why he fled the Charges in Sweeden...he was afraid the US would force his extradition which is exactly what they're trying to do in England. He knew he was a dead man regardless of his innocence or guilt on the charges. He knows first hand how he would be tortured. He knows better than most. I don't mean to suggest that you should just blindly follow what Noam Chomsky says/does but I mean the guy is out immediately when the news breaks to defend him too. I trust Chomsky more than I do the CIA. When has he ever lied? How about our intelligence agencies? Lol
