Why are the Democrats today such a confused bunch of animals?

Honestly I don't understand why the Dems moved so far out into the fringe zone. They used to be straight from the heartland America loving working class champions, what happened to them? Or at least that's how they presented themselves, now it's just open hate and contempt for America. How is it that many Western immigrants like this country more than roughly half of its own citizens?

Hopefully we will never get to a second civil war, as more and more Democrats #walkaway from the Democratic Parody of a party.

Dude tried to incept our system of government and spoil an election. He’s a traitor to the Constitution he swore to uphold and should have been locked in prison as well as fired.

Holy shit, the NY Times published that fake letter seriously, when it is clearly parody!

We have definitely entered the funhouse now.

In order to produce a blue wave, Democrats need a coherent agenda

First of all, the unofficial leader of the party, Hillary Clinton, needs to shut her mouth. Since her defeat, she's been on the road, barking & screaming at the world, passively indicating that the election was some-how misappropriated from her. In contrast, Al Gore went silent, after the 2000 Florida debacle, where the election was in the fact, STOLEN, in the most horrific way possible ... one which was sanctioned by the Supreme Court. So by the following 2004 election season, the Democrats had new leadership and could move on. Today, in place of Gore's graceful exit, we have the Cult of Hillary Clinton which is unabating.

Not by every metric. Like real wages

IMHO, we're undergoing a structural change in the economy which is independent of political parties. I believe we're in the early stages of mass automation where employees do not have any leverage on wage increases. A lot of companies can use contract labor to fill stop-gaps in their delivery cycles and thus, not have to maintain permanent headcount, while at the same time CIOs look towards expert systems to maximize the workload of the existing crop of ppl on the permanent payroll. Face it, moving forward, a lot of ppl will need more than 1 job to earn what they used to earn, in the pre-AI era.

I am still at a loss to explain how President Trump is infringing on ANYONES 1st Amendment rights.

All he is doing is criticizing, and in many cases rightfully so.

If the media doesn't want to be criticized, they should stop editorializing literally EVERYTHING they write, and instead report the facts.

Theres plenty to legitimately criticize President Trump over. Why make up even more crap?!?!

Those states don't have any taxes! Let's all move there.
Wonder how many federal dollars they receive in food stamps,housing,business subsidies?
Of course only Democrats are receiving this Socialism.

I think it's common knowledge that Republicans are net taxpayers and that Democrats are net tax recipients.

Geneva (AFP) - The Swiss city of Lausanne has blocked a Muslim couple's bid to become Swiss nationals over their refusal to shake hands with members of the opposite sex.

The municipality said it refused to grant the couple's citizenship application over their lack of respect for gender equality, Lausanne mayor Gregoire Junod told AFP.

He said a municipal commission had questioned the couple several months ago to determine if they met the criteria for citizenship, but had determined in the ruling made public Friday that they missed the mark on integration.

He refused to divulge the couple's nationalities or other identifying details, but said they "did not shake hands with people of the opposite sex."

They also "showed great difficulty in answering questions asked by people of the opposite sex," he said.

The utter refusal of devout Muslims to adopt the customs (or even obey the laws) of the countries they want to immigrate to should indeed be a disqualification for citizenship in the West. Good on the Swiss.

I don't think there are going to be any protests in Switzerland because of this. The Swiss never accepted the fraudulent and suicidal "white guilt" syndrome that has infected so many other countries. If only the rest of the Western World could stand up straight and find their balls.

The TRUTH and FACTS aren't personal attacks.

Actually, the can be. There are facts about specific individual people (they do not matter for their argument) and there are facts about the points they are making (they matter a lot).

I don't care if it's Hitler himself making a point. Please keep it about the point and not about Hitler.

Trump should have staged a DEATH! TO! THE! ENEMY! event in which reporters would be pulverized with artillery shells.

People would love it and Trump could allow them to buy their FREE!dom by sucking his dick on TV, making it worth his while if the reporters were hot chicks.

Musk is pushing tech on the cutting edge. Of course there’s risk to this strategy, and he’s made mistakes (like trying to fully automate car production). However he’s also putting his money out there in an attempt to drag the human race back to space exploration, and building cars that are seriously cool. He’s the entrepreneur needed to dream big enough to actually change the stagnation that’s mothballed our space program into the boring drudgery of bureaucracy.

I wish him well.

I also want a space force! Go Trump!

This is exactly the issue I mentioned in a thread a couple weeks back. My 2/3 townhome in Pasadena has a larger tax bill than a giant monstrosity in the same neighborhood, valued at 5-6x. It's fucking ridiculous.

Agreed. Prop 13 is ridiculous crony capitalism. They should lower property taxes for every one and do away with prop 13.

I’m riddled with shame. White shame. This isn’t helpful to me or to anyone, especially people of color. I feel like there is no “me” outside of my white/upper middle class/cisgender identity. I feel like my literal existence hurts people, like I’m always taking up space that should belong to someone else.

The best thing for those who have White Guilt is not to vote. That way they can help POCs have a larger vote share.

Also, since open borders start at home, leave your door unlocked and windows open at night.

How Can I Cure My White Guilt?

1. Wear a MAGA hat and shirt.
2. Go into a Chicago ghetto bar.
3. Scream the N word repeatedly.
4. Wait.

That should do it.
