How about the good old days when the slogan was maybe "a chicken in every pot." It brings to mind that some people were hungry and needed to eat. What if they were vegetarian or didn't like chicken? What if they were so poor they didn't even have a pot? This brings up a lot of serious questions. Could they have beef instead or just eat vegetables?
Then I like the people who run for office and say not to worry about the costs of a project because we will just get the money from Washington. It was my understanding that he died a long time ago.
Selective outrage there on Ms. Clinton's emails. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell had used the same sort of system. Senior George W. Bush administration staffers used a private email domain on an RNC server. Jeb Bush used personal email on his own server when he was governor of Florida. Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, and staffers of Chris Christie conducted official business over private email accounts.
Michael, if you knew more American history you would know that for wealthy folks America has always been socialist.
It has been made into a slogan: Privatize the Profits; Socialize the Costs.
What do you mean, Tom? I do know my Murican history. That mean old King wouldn't let those folks practice their liggion so they all came to Murica but the King threw some crooks in the boat with them. This last bunch went to Wall St.
One Michael knows American/Murican history. :)
Yup, externalize the risks and the costs, including pollution and adverse health effects.
Even within a narrower scope, a good example is the high number of Wal-Mart workers who still need public assistance.
Yeah GC, but internalizing the safety and benefits and externalizing the risks and costs takes the issue out of the political and puts it into the personal.
And the personal is sometimes not the political.
Socialism is not Communism. Socialism is not Fascism. The contemporary American Democratic Socialism advocated by Bernie has nothing to do with Marxism, rather it is a reflection of the Spirit of the American Constitution which begins with the essence of Democratic Socialism: "WE THE PEOPLE".
The Constitution does not begin with "Me the Individual" or "It the Corporation".
And tell me, If I sent a classified document to your email address, should YOU be indicted? According to your logic, yes.
And if you found such a document in your personal email, which is not secure, wouldn't you delete it?
While I generally disagree with Mr. Pianko, two observations fit here:
You REALLY want to take back the US? Don't forget the House and the Senate ... or have you forgotten who it is that's been blocking Obama at every turn for most of the past seven years?
And Obama never actually had that brief filibuster-proof Democratic supermajority in the Senate in practice, thanks to one senator being hospitalized and not voting.
I see Clinton as Nixon reincarnated.(Which is ironic because she got fired from one of her first jobs --the Watergate investigation)
She (and her handlers) strictly control the press access(she has not given a single press conference this year), she will not take uncontrolled questions, keeps changing her story when she gets caught in a lie. Donald and Bernie have really nutty ideas but they're the actual candidate, much less filtered by party hacks.
Think of it this way: there is NO WAY that your vote will change the election. It just won't. So go ahead and say 'none of the above' by voting elsewhere, Green, Libertarian (which I'm doing) or whatever your preference.
