  1. No Excuses

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    1. You benefit every single day from the labor of undocumented workers. It is not just the super rich. They are an integral part of the broader economy. 2. No one is proposing that we keep bringing in undocumented immigrants, while paying them crap wages. Pretty much everyone on the left wants them to have a path to legal residency and access to civil rights all productive members of society deserve. 3. They are not displacing native workers, nor is there any consensus between economists that they depress wages for legal residents or citizens.
  2. Just straight up ****ing lunacy. Did anyone else watch this? He declared statistics showing most drugs cross the border at legal ports of entry from his own government agencies as “its wrong, it’s wrong. It’s a lie. It’s a lie”. His response to where he gets his stats: “I get many stats”. The public as usual will fail to grasp how unacceptable this is. He’s declaring a national emergency on something unsupported by facts and is declaring the work of his own agencies as “LIES”.

    Yet we rely on them to support our economic growth and basic sustenance. If a market didn’t exist for their skills and services, they wouldn’t be here. It’s straight up moral cowardice to ignore their rights on American soil by pointing to their undocumented status. You benefit from their work and existence every single day.

    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    Good for Bill Weld. In some scenarios, I would even vote for him (or someone similar) over a Bernie-type candidate. But that isn’t happening as long as the GOP is the de facto party of racist, low-information, feelings-before-facts dweebs.

    Once again, living in a fact-free world. Even analysis from right wing think tanks using government data shows that this is a non-existent problem. https://www.cato.org/publications/policy-analysis/terrorism-immigration-risk-analysis A dumb wall on the southern border will solve absolutely nothing. Wasting billions of dollars on a remedy that doesn’t solve the problem is the height of insanity. But please tell us more about how you love “small government”, yet support the most ridiculous waste of tax payer money on bull****.

    Cities Race for Amazon's second "head quarters"

    I see both sides of the argument on this. But at the end of the day, it’s flat out ridiculous to give such a massive tax break to a company owned by the wealthiest man in the world.

    Long term, I’m not sure if I think UBI is necessary. I would much rather see a guaranteed minimum income, that is relative to cost of living per area. Someone like me has no rational reason to receive UBI. I suspect a large chunk of the population won’t, despite automation driven job loss.

    Amazon has cancelled HQ2 plans in NYC, citing resistance from local politicians. Still moving forward with Arlington, VA.
  9. If the GOP isn’t punished in 2020 for debasing our politics this entire decade, then all hope is lost for this country for a long time.

    Literally none of this has been done. The deficit has exploded under him, no healthcare legislation was passed and he is factually the least transparent and most dishonest president in a long time. You are entitled to your opinions, but you are not entitled to making up your own reality.

    You are right. Trump is a symptom. He correctly recognized that racist perverts are the choice of preference for the conservative base.
  12. The saddest indictment of the GOP is that the Russians correctly recognized that they are such shameless and craven politicians, that if the Kremlin decided to intervene in our politics on their behalf, not only would the GOP accept it, but they would then work towards delegitimizating and weakening our own defense mechanisms.

    Meh sounds like almost all bosses in DC in the legislative/policy arena.

    Sherrod Brown is a Democrat winning Senate elections in a state that has gone deeply Trumpian. Would be silly if he ran.
  15. Years and years and years of brainwashing. We are past the point of debating policy and political philosophy in this country. I will keep saying this till 2020, but at this point we are beyond liberal vs conservative politics. There are no policy arguments to be had when at least 1/3 of the country lives in a bubble completely disconnected from the realities of the 21st century and when they have shunned the expertise of everyone from economists, scientists to their own intelligence agencies.
