The extent of the allegations that have been leveled against Bill Clinton since his time as Governor of Arkansas remains underreported to this day.
 
Decision to downplay rape accusations against president by many outlets was ***far more important than*** (and unrelated to) whether anyone goes to a party for the departing WH press secretary
Replying to @jbview
both are symptoms of the same disease

Wait so the Dems are caving to the R’s that have fled the state in Oregon to stop the passage of a climate bill? Literally everything about our current politics in a nutshell. All of it is right there.

Making edits a possibility will destroy this site. People will always have to take screenshots to make sure, because anyone who gets ratioed will just edit his posts. At the moment he has to delete it (which is just as satisfying as dunking on someone itself)
Replying to @21Gramsci
Just leave a publicly available edit trace. It would also reduce the hate-ratio dogpiling somewhat.
 
I am perfectly OK with a few billionaire's kids getting free college, as long as everyone else gets it, too. Just like I'm OK with billionaires collecting social security as long as everyone else does, too.

Universality is key to not pitting the middle class against the poor.

Dear twitter: an edit button, please. I shouldn't have to pick between deleting a tweet and leaving up a dumb misplaced apostrophe.

I wonder how many people are in the same position as me: need a new car, really really want an EV, but keep being told that a million great new EVs are just over the horizon, so keep waiting. Enough to affect the market? eenews.net/greenwire/2019…
Replying to @drvox
i'm in this boat, but I also really need better range than what is widely available now.
 
If everyone getting a college degree makes a college degree worthless, then they have no intrinsic value and we shouldn't be making college degrees the gateway to the middle class.

It's either worth something real, or it isn't.
 
For certain older white people, "socialism" just means using tax dollars to help anyone who isn't an older white person.
This debate would benefit from defining one’s terms. Is Medicare-for-all socialism? If so, is Medicare? Is a taxpayer bailout for farmers hurt by a trade war socialism? What about $400B on F-35 planes that don’t fight but create jobs building them? Is Social Security socialism?

I was going to ask in jest when the people who think free college is regressive are going to get around to attacking public K-12, but of course they're already doing that.
 
Warren people who hate Bernie and Bernie people who hate Warren are both in politics for all the wrong reasons.
 
Unless @BernieSanders is planning to pay off student loan debt personally he should probably stfu about it. School is a choice. Does the gov’t have to pay for all of our choices? My house? My car? My wedding? My children? My groceries? At what point do we take responsibility?
About the same time as college functionally became the entry gate to the middle class, AND selfish policy decisions started making it prohibitively expensive.
 
Complaining that another country spends too much on military is an interesting take for an American president, especially this one.
In reply to @realDonaldTrump
....The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else. The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more...
 
The @nytimes hates to reference anyone else's work, routinely refuses to link to anyone else's work, and often ignores stories that others broke.

It's such a petty, shortsighted, stupidly competitive editorial stance for what is supposedly the industry-leading paper of record.
Not at all happy with this explanation. Basically if we didn't break the story of Trump being accused of rape, we bury it? Bad decision made worse by what seems like professional jealousy. Hire a damn public editor nytimes.com/2019/06/24/rea…
 
Here's hoping that every shareholder invested in HSAs loses their money when Medicare for All becomes a reality.
Replying to @DavidOAtkins
just for clarification when the inevitable bad faith attacks come: I'm not talking about people who put money in HSAs. I'm talking about big investors in HSA funds seeking ROI by promoting terrible policy. Those people deserve to lose their shirts.

It's really weird to open up Reddit and see that the top article on the front page is yours.
 
Why are people saying that student debt cancellation will only help the rich?

Is this an actual coherent argument?

Which rich person takes out a loan they’re paying interest back on? That argument is absurd.
Replying to @TwinklingTania
their argument is that only the privilege can afford to go to college. Ignoring the fact that the outrageous cost of college is part of *why* less privileged people can't go. Also, it's just another way for the rich to set the poor against the middle class.

It's total junk science, even for professional wine tasters who routinely can't judge them accurately in blind taste tests. It's snooty gatekeeping for the overprivileged. I'd amuse myself by randomly pricing & labeling wines to see if anyone could tell. theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2…
Wine-tasting: it's junk science

In reply to @JeremyBWhite
Seriously, wine grape growers are fearing that their wine is going to have tasting notes of ganja.
Replying to @scottlay @JeremyBWhite and 1 otherfalse
I don't drink wine or use cannabis. But if I have to choose between the cannabis people and the wine people, I choose the cannabis people. "Tasting notes" are imaginary anyway.

No one will be... Obama jailed whole familes... this is what bi-partisanship looks like ! #CloseTheCamps
Obama's immigration policy sucked, but kids didn't die in detention and families were housed together. It wasn't great, but Trump has made things MUCH, much worse.
 
No surprise Trump wants to put sanctions on Ayatollah Khomeini (who died in 1989). Trump's politics and social sense haven't shifted since the 1980s. In Trump's world, the Central Park Five are guilty, crime is rampant, and Death Wish III just came out in theaters.
 
 
Exactly this. Too many people cower or leave the field when the trolls come to harass. Credit to @AOC to sticking it through. All it takes to beat bullies is standing your ground.
Yes, the treatment is bad - but the one thing I’ve learned about the right is that they’re all bark.

They stomp, they whine, they burst w/ hyperbole - all bc they rely on Dems backing down when GOP creates controversy.

They don’t know what to do when we stick by our principles.

Party of "build the wall and make Mexico pay for it" is going to demand Democrats explain "how" to pay for proposals and the response should be a hearty and derisive laugh.

(Media will try too, laugh at them as well)
 
China gets 91% of its Oil from the Straight, Japan 62%, & many other countries likewise. So why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation. All of these countries should be protecting their own ships on what has always been....
Replying to @realDonaldTrump
If you don't know the answer to that question, you have no business being anywhere close to the Oval Office.
 
It's not illegal. And these are young children.

7/ For 10 years, not one migrant child died in U.S. government custody. Since September, at least 6 kids have died in the custody of DHS or HHS. How many more kids must die before we end this madness?

Warren introduces something and Sanders responds, or Warren builds on something Sanders introduced in 2016, and in general the policies keep advancing and get refined. Excellent.
 
There must be accountability for everyone responsible for the intentional cruelty of our child detention policy. Not just those who gave the orders, but those who follow them.

In reply to @mcbyrne
Huh. I didn't take it as a negative. To me, "scold" means to call someone out for bad behavior.
it's a negative word. Agree with Melissa here.
 
What language? You mean the concentration camps Trump is putting immigrant children in as an inhumane deterrent against asylum seekers?
.@AOC used her words to cheapen the atrocities of the Holocaust. This is disrespectful and just plain wrong. Sign our petition to let her know that these comments won’t be tolerated. We have to keep this language out of politics ow.ly/6QRn30oYZkr
 
Imagine if left-wing terrorist groups shut down state government, Democratic lawmakers fled and threatened the lives of law enforcement, and then the official Dem Party made tongue-in-cheek jokes about it.

Armed conservative terrorist groups are blocking Oregon from dealing with climate change. It's just that the media won't call them terrorists.

I would be happy to divert tax dollars from expensive military escalation in Iran to comfortable hotels for asylum seekers and their kids and fully funded prosecutions of their abusers.
 
Democrats aren't going to get fawning press coverage for message bills. They might as well issue the subpoenas.

When our Country had no debt and built everything from Highways to the Military with CASH, we had a big system of Tariffs. Now we allow other countries to steal our wealth, treasure, and jobs - But no more! The USA is doing great, with unlimited upside into the future!
Replying to @realDonaldTrump
We taxed the obscenely rich at 91%. That's the difference.
 
the song of ice and fire books are sooooo much more fucked up than the show tbh
 
Thanks for all the attention, Senator Sanders.

But you're wrong. Your campaign is an existential threat b/c an avowed Dem Socialist is likely to lose to Trump.

Still, if you win the nomination, we will strongly support you. B/C Trump is an existential threat to our republic.

Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for round up.

NOW is the time for us to come together:

- Check in w/ your neighbors
- Share “Know Your Rights” info
- If you see ICE, report to @UNITEDWEDREAM 1-844-363-1423
 
Sounds pretty awesome.

It’s interesting that in the United States you can get your armed terrorist group politely termed a “militia” by both law enforcement and the media if you adopt a right-wing ideology.
 
Everyone involved in this crime against humanity needs to stand trial.
In reply to @RAICESTEXAS
An attorney "met one 16-year-old mother whose 8-month-old baby was sick with the flu and forced to sleep outside for four days... The mother said the guards took the clothing off the baby’s back, leaving her in a diaper, and forced them to sleep on concrete without a blanket."

A Friday afternoon hot take for you: In the long run, the Biden quote this week that may do the most damage is “Nothing will fundamentally change,” said to a room of donors.
 
 
I can’t emphasize this enough:

If Elizabeth Warren gets her way and gives everyone free college and wipes their student loans after I paid mine, I will nuke everyone.
Replying to @CalebJHull
no one cares what you think.
 
So war with Iran hinges on who wins a battle for Donald Trump's whims between Tucker Carlson and John Bolton.

I feel safe. Thanks, Republicans.
 
Everyone involved in planning, approving and overseeing these concentrations camps for kids needs to go to jail. Preferably in the Hague.
