    You mean back to “white male slaveowner” at this point.

    He’s only saying he won’t because he knows it’s a loser with voters. He’ll say ANYTHING to get back into office and avoid being imprisoned for his many crimes. In fact, he’ll say anything that gets him attention! The whole “build the wall” was a throwaway that he picked up when one crowd cheered him for it. Not exactly a strategic dude.

    And, frankly, his entire business career…

    Nazis and other white supremacists are OPENLY using the Republican Party as their tool; if the Communists are using the Democratic Party (and they aren’t), they are singularly inept at doing so, given the dominance of people like the Clintons for so long.

    Well put, and agree. To which I would add that the pandemic had the paradoxically positive effect of helping people realize they had been suckered into a life of working endlessly for people who literally did not care if they lived or died, and reignited the labor movement, along with the increasingly absurd levels of income inequality – and the super-rich parading that in increasingly absurd ways. (I’ve been to Davos…whoa, boy. The founder thinks seriously that he deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.)

    The Kellogg strike should be in history books for the way that solidarity among younger and older workers broke the sleazy tactics that had been used successfully in the past to break labor, and not only did the management fail to stop the movement, they had to give up MORE in the final contract.

    Against this, we have Christian nationalism and oligarchical capitalism, for sure, but I am not convinced that AGW will lead to right-wing authoritarianism – by contrast, I think it may lead to outright rebellion against those who put us in this place. We shall see…

    We’re getting about 92%. We ordered our glasses (NASA-recommended) early enough to get them in time, but had we not, we would have gone for the old pinhole trick.

    A more accurate description would be that the Democratic Party (not “Democrat Party”) committed to civil rights in the 1960s thanks to JFK and LBJ, while the Republicans committed to racism around the same time, thanks to Nixon’s Southern Strategy, and the GOP has since become the party of open white supremacy, sexism, and capitalist oligarchy – no wonder they are defending Russia!

    If you want to talk about our traditional continuum of left-to-right, which is really too simplistic (most political scientists use at least two dimensions), both major parties have moved towards the right in most ways, certainly economically. The neoliberals in the Democratic Party (Clintons, Obama) are roughly at George H. W. Bush’s place on the continuum, which was the “moderate Republican” who was pro-business, economically moderately conservative and socially more liberal. The Democratic Party moved considerably more rightward under the Clintons, forging ties with Big Business like the Republicans did, which is probably the real reason the Republicans hated them so much. They lost touch with Labor almost entirely. (e.g., NAFTA was a disaster for the American worker, but a delight for the billionaire class.)

    Biden has re-connected with Labor to some extent, and a cadre of Democratic legislators have maintained social liberalism and pushed harder towards democratic socialism – not “socialism,” not “Communism,” not “Marxism” and CERTAINLY not “far left extreme,” but in fact what used to be the center of the Democratic Party: the New Deal of FDR. This is where a lot of the more successful countries in Europe reside.“Far left extreme” would include things like the nationalizing of businesses, which not even the Squad suggests. The only reason the Democratic Party appears “far left extreme” is because the Republicans have moved towards outright right-wing nationalist fascism – Bircherism, which used to be considered too extreme by William F. Buckley, is now the mainstream of the GOP.

    Gotcha. But some of the trolls around here…

    I hope that was sarcasm. Trans Awareness Day predates Biden’s term in office, and is consistently on March 31. Easter moves around, thanks to a series of wars fought over deciding it.

    @aristoclesplato9 – Proof or it didn’t happen. And even if it did, it absolutely does NOT justify threatening an innocent party. You know as well as I do that #45 is doing this to bully and threaten the judge. If he weren’t rich and famous, he’d already be in jail for this alone.
