See my post above to Jimmy Carter, that applies to you as well. Don't worry, I'm not embarrassed for myself, I will continue to post the truths against the awful, woeful left. 

Dayum, I'm staring out my office window (the lake) at a buck staring back at me. 

Mother trucker you posted a fake *** tweet. The tweet was absolutely not supported by the video in any way, shape, or form. I’d say shame on you but you have zero shame. Just trolling a message board in your golden years. That’s going to be a fond set of memories to reflect upon one day.

13 are in seats that are either tossup or Republican leaning.  Another 6 are in seats that have a Dem lean less than 10 points.  Yeah, run a bunch of Progressives in those seats and see what happens.  

I think they should try running full on socialist in all of those seats. Lol

When do you think he drops out?

Hopefully after someone else picks up the Medicare 4 America mantle. Warren, Harris, and Booker need a healthcare plan, especially Harris and Booker. Warren seems more bought into M4All than the other two.

To be fair the Republicans are not any better than the Democrats, they just take better care of the rich and pander to racist blue collar folks who are resentful of minorities. Both parties are flaccid cow udders actually.

Harris just seems to be going with whatever appears the most politically viable for her. Seriously doubt she'll switch to M4Am after its only prominent proponent crashed and burned.

I have no idea wtf Warren is doing regarding healthcare.

At any rate:

My point was made. Shaming Graham was not fake. You choose what you want, I expect no further responses from you if it's a waste of time. I wasted my time with you on the Russian Hoax for over two years, which many of you have to this day failed to acknowledge I was right....Lemmings, most of you!

I never gave two ***** about Russia bro. Stop lying.

Don’t laugh.  There are people who think that’s a winning strategy.

Should we run McCaskills and Donnellys instead?

Between Dems announcing what they're going to do, the fact we already know their leadership won't actually do anything with it beyond trying to get it back into the headlines, and dumb **** like this it is pretty obvious that this is going to be a massive flop. <_<

This guy is part of Trump’s re-election campaign btw. :lol: 

I remember when he pretended to be a liberal who supported Trump during the 2016 campaign and then switched parties around the election since the left was overly sensitive, tried to find any excuse to complain, and bla bla bla. Then Trump supporters used him as an example to prove that even liberals were starting to support Trump and it was imminent that they'd all be switching over to the GOP soon.

Anyway, now he complains about straws and jerseys for a living.

Lindsey Graham has had an active Twitter account since 2011. He has been vocal against Trump numerous times. Graham heavily criticized Trump’s response to Charlottesville and suggested that history would remember him as a racist if he doesn’t address his behavior. Prior to the 2016 election, Graham suggested Trump is too inept and xenophobic to lead this country.

He also doesn’t like what Trump says about his dear late friend John McCain but you’d never know it. He has only mentioned it once and immediately suggested that sucking Trump’s **** cures heartburn.

Harris wants to support the Brand and have zero healthcare plan. 

Warren has conceded healthcare to Bernie. 

And you cannot blame Medicare for America on Beto's collapse. It is what voters want when they think of Medicare for All.

 

He could just just explain that he support M4All at the time because we had to make that choice. M4America didn't get introduced until December last year. 

M4America will grow in support once that independent analysis is released next week.  It is going to be a real bad day for SP advocates if it ends up being cheaper and requiring less taxes. B)

This thread is a great insight into why so many are struggling in an economy that is supposedly roaring. And it's not all on Trump. This has been building for the last 40 years.

 

i could not disagree with this tweet thread more. in fact, it could be argued that the fed’s obsession with the threat of inflation is precisely part of the problem. 

when i’m not sitting in a sam’s club i’ll try and grab some deets.

M4Am didn't cause Beto's collapse but he certainly did damage to the argument that M4A is just a phrase people like and they'll gravitate toward a more moderate proposal.

I have to disagree with him. He attempts to blame the decoupling on leaving the gold standard and inflation itself but that simply isn't the case. His graphs even show that the effect wasn't really felt until the late 70s, which was when there was a shift in the Federal Reserves focus from combating unemployment to combating inflation as part of the general trend toward neoliberalism.

Long story short, prior to that shift the focus was on unemployment. That allowed inflation to grow more but that was largely because the Fed would allow boom cycles to go on for longer. This allowed conditions in which unemployment was low and, thus, employers had to be more competitive to get desired labor. Higher wages for more people lead to more inflation, but overall conditions are better since typically wages outpace inflation.

After the neoliberal shift, however, the focus is on reducing inflation. This is why boom cycles tend to be much shorter and recessions more frequent. Once inflation reaches a certain point the Fed moves to 'pop' the bubble so inflation will decrease. The problem with that, obviously, is that labor never really gets a chance to take advantage of the boom. The moment the economy is working for everyone is when it's sent crashing back down.

So, in reality, the problem is too great of a focus on combating inflation, not inflation itself.

There are also other issues with what he said:

1. Bretton Woods didn't put us on the gold standard, as he seems to imply.

2. He attributes Bretton Woods with financial and dollar currency stability when, in reality, that had to do with New Deal regulations and standardization.

3. Even though Bretton Woods 'technically' ended with leaving the gold standard the dollar remained the global reserve currency so nothing really changed in the grand scheme of things.

4. He doesn't take into account the issues having the dollar be the global reserve currency and having it tied to the gold standard, namely other countries trading in their dollar reserves for our gold reserves which was having a negative affect on the value of the dollar.

Where do you learn this ****? G5z0rdI.gif
