    Democratic debate

    pretty clear that the whole intent thing is a deliberate fraud . . https://www.thenation.com/article/archive/constitution-originalism-republicans-14-amendment-birthright-citizenship/ and what does it have to do with the debate anyway? to me, the obvious and deliberate militarism of the CBA mods is a much bigger issue. But then, this is not my Forum

    Democratic debate

    The CBS debate mods were almost entirely militaristic . . Maybe Vets For Peace should sponsor one. The major foreign policy questions asked by the CBS moderators were: Gayle King: "Mayor Buttigieg...why would the Russians to be working on behalf of Bernie Sanders?" Norah O’Donnell: "You said, Senator Warren, you said you wanted to bring home all troops from the Middle East and then you walked that back to say you want to bring home combat troops. ... How does that protect America's national security?" King: "Would you close the borders to Americans who have been exposed to the coronavirus in order to prevent an outbreak here in this country?" Margaret Brennan: "Would you allow Chinese firms to build critical U.S. infrastructure?" Brennan: "Can Americans trust that a democratic socialist president will not give authoritarians a free pass?" Whitaker: "If it is proven that Russia has interfered in the 2020 elections, would you, as president, launch a retaliatory cyber attack?" Major Garrett: "What would you say to American Jews who might be concerned you're not, from their perspective, supportive enough of Israel? And specifically, sir, would you move the U.S. embassy back to Tel Aviv?" O’Donnell: "Senator Klobuchar, if you were commander-in-chief, would you meet with the North Korean leader?" Brennan: "The Syrian regime and Russia are targeting schools, bakeries, and hospitals. What would you do as president to push back regime and Russian forces and stop the killing of innocent civilians?" Brennan: "Senator Warren .... What would you do to stop the mass murder in Idlib, Syria?" For more information, contact at the Institute for Public Accuracy:

    Understanding Bernie

    It is beyond stupid for the MSM to go full-on politically correct, and express shock, shock I tell you, that Bernie has the unmitigated gall to defend literacy campaigns in Cuba. Youse guys above do a reasonable job of discussing Bernie related policies. Hats off to ya.

    You're lying again/still. I hang with and sail with many Reps., but they are not like you. They are not extremist partisan hacks. And they respect the truth, so I do not call them "Reichistas". As I have explained previously, you have earned the sobriquet "Reich" because of your actions. At least I capitalize the R.

    What you both are missing is that the modern liberal state was expressly designed to protect the rich from the poor. The hijacking of the 14th amendment by corporate oligarchs is very instructive in this regard; and check out how the 19th century rich used the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, not against the trusts, but the union movement. (I learned a lot of this in grad school at the U. of Colorado. If you get this, thank a political philosophy professor!)

    Hey Short - Why don't you join the Golden Rule crew? They will likely need someone in 2 or 3 months for the voyage to Japan. Here is a cool pic of Sister Wong, a Prof from Chaminade Univ. in Hawaii, with her environmental ethics class.

    The Reich wants us to believe that Warren is less forthright than the Drumph . . Seriously, they do. Extremist partisan hacks divorced from reality is what they are.

    Full-on Dictator stuff

    Actually, my good friend BD, that is not even close to the half of it . . . Drumph and the Reich are also quite clear in their intent to purge progressives from the judiciary in general - judges, prosecutors, and jurors. But wait there is more !! They will also be removed from the civil service (esp. those punk scientists), the military and the police And more !! Academia (moi?) and the teaching professions. Good lord in heaven, even Jeff Bezos is not safe!! And yes, that is authoritarian thinking And yes, it is applauded by the PA Reich. (See the David Wright ABC story - if you are insufficiently pro-capitalist, you need not apply - anywhere)

    Full-on Dictator stuff

    As the sainted FDR would have no doubt have remarked, "I welcome their hatred." If they were not agitated, it would mean I was doing something wrong. And BTW, Bernie &Y Liz should invoke FDR more often - see his Four Freedoms. As in (Common Dreams, Sophie Vaughan), "Increasingly, Sanders surrogates on the campaign trail have framed the candidate’s ideas as an extension of the Economic Bill of Rights, a concept first proposed in 1944 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in his State of the Union address.

    Help Abolish nuclear weapons

    I've been around long enough to not buy into the "exceptional" meme. Are you saying that this did not happen? This does not sound too awful "defensive" to me. Sen. Robert Byrd - A letter written in 1995 by former CDC Director David Satcher to former Senator Donald W. Riegle, Jr., points out that the U.S. Government provided nearly two dozen viral and bacterial samples to Iraqi scientists in 1985--samples that included the plague, botulism, and anthrax, among other deadly diseases. And more on topic, the Drumph also sold nuclear technology to Saudi. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-saudi-arabia-iran-weapons-republicans-national-security-risks-2019-6

    Oh yeah, I forgot. "Our" bio-weapons are actually totally defensive, cuddly almost. But of course those of the "other" are threatening, scary and terroristic. Exceptional R US

    Best sailing lakes North America?

    Oh yeah !! Here there be monsters - best avoid western Lake Erie. Come to think of it. some times that power boat chop (due to our shallow waters) does sorta feel like being monster-ified.

    I did not write that I was making such an assumption, but . . . to me the US bio-war effort was (is?) equally alarming. My hero . . https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/2019/4/9/18301321/biological-weapons-xrisks-future-of-life-institute

    So we should instead believe little ol' anonymous you? Take that Stanford course and get back to us. And while you are at it, look at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. They have a whole lot more cred than you. I enjoy many of your informative posts - but here you are off the rails. (Look out CN!)

    I thought the case against him was surprisingly weak. He said "I need to get something" on tape - but get what? for whom? By itself, to me that is not strong evidence of corruption. What else ya got? (I could be wrong here, of course)
