I guess I should also mention that Mussolini, in Italy, is remembered fondly by his nation as a great leader until he hooked up with Hitler and his estate remains in family hands and the family is also considered positively. These are not, incidentally, the only strange times. Germany lost, basically, because he would not listen to his generals and turned on Stalin (his ally) too soon. The American revolution was, arguably, won by France not the Americans. France also lost more troops than the Americans too.

Just thought I would throw that in...........

The idea that whoever is our current President will not leave when their term in office is over is a conspiracy theory. Wacko Republicans said that about Pres. Obama and wacko Democrats are saying that about Pres. Trump.

Can anyone think of a delusional Democrat? 911 conspiracist? I dunno know. Seems like right wing folks are prone to delusions and paranoia. Someone point out the error in my statement.


I don't dislike Joe Biden. I don't even dislike Hillz.
I imagine Joe is probably a nice guy. Whether or not Hillary is nice doesn't matter to me because she's an excellent policy wonk.
But she has always been a terrible candidate.

But I don't dislike them, I just think that we need to move the needle a little further left than either of them are willing to consider.
Mind you, not to the extreme edge, just enough to put us about where we were back before Ronald Reagan began dissecting the New Deal would be fine.

To people like Joe, maybe the New Deal is considered too extreme.
It might not be extreme enough. Maybe we could do well with passing FDR's Second Bill of Rights...you know, Part II which never got off the ground?

So it's not that I hate Joe, it's that I don't think we should go back to the 1980's and 1990's and Joe represents that in spades.

One wacko Republican keeps repeating the idea that he should be President for Life.
Yes I know, you guys insist he's joking.
I know that you think he's just making a joke.

I'd like to think so but the God's honest truth is, Donald Trump NEVER actually is joking. He doesn't joke unless it's at someone's expense.

As they say, "The cruelty is the point."

All of the Trump supporters I know from across the country, thanks to the internet, know that Trump will walk away from the Oval Office, as soon as his term in office is over. While you might believe it Donald J. Trump can and does tell jokes.

Did I ever say anything about "over-regulating" capitalism?
Do you think payday loan centers are the lifeblood of a healthy capitalist economy? Should they be regulated at all or should they be given complete carte blanche?

Please don't put words in my mouth that I never said, and by the way, you are red-baiting me again. You're red baiting me by insisting that I am "patiently slipping in the ideas of Marx and Engels, but rewritten to sound innocuous, to slowly achieve their goal of a communist world."

Because, of course: LEFTIST!!!

Or was I imagining all the times he said that very thing?
