Trump is a bigot, but is his thinking that quoting a fascist might help him get elected that far-fetched after 8 years of Obama and now Hillary’s TPP?

The establishment created a lot of fear and anger as the concentrated wealth over the past 8 years and now it is biting them in the ass in form of Trump.

Worse still for the rest of us, some of the 99%r’s so effected are displacing some of that anger in ugly ways. For instance, racist thinking and even membership in hate groups that validate their misguided thinking and compound the problem further.

This country's leadership has been is tearing our society apart with their economic violence.

For those of you who missed the quote ...

Super Tuesday: 20,000 Massachusetts voters leave the Democratic Party in what can only be a clear message for Hillary Clinton to go fuck herself.

Excerpt from the article

Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats have fled the party this winter, with thousands doing so to join the Republican ranks, according to the state’s top elections official.

Secretary of State William Galvin said more than 16,300 Democrats have shed their party affiliation and become independent voters since Jan. 1, while nearly 3,500 more shifted to the MassGOP ahead of tomorrow’s “Super Tuesday” presidential primary.

Establishment Insider Feces Obama & Syphilis Addled Bill Clinton have “experts” generate made-as-instructed economic opinion slamming Bernie sanders.

Shameless “professors” seeking not only social status by striking up an affiliation with the country’s political elite but also a good old envelope of cash have authored an economic opinion that just so happens to throw mud at Bernie sanders, the challenger being faced by skeevy bill clinton’s wife.

If effective it could mean the “expert” academicians who wrote it could get an invitation to a white house shindig where they can finally show their peers just how important and elite they really are!

Govt can boost 99%r’s after-tax disposable income by stripping the provision of medical care of insurance monopolies (including the exorbitant overhead, salaries, and perks) and providing a single payer system.

Enuf said. That’s a huge no brainer. Go Bernie go!

It speaks to a fundamental problem with all privatizations – all they do is add a profit margin and other for-profit expenses to a good or service that used to be provided to the consumer at cost.

And in a lot of cases, the good or service is "necessary" which opens up a whole can of overcharging when put in private for-profit hands.

Make that DRUMPF NOT TRUMP

TRUMP criticized JOHN STEWARD for not using his real name Jonathan Liebowitz, TRUMPS real family name is DRUMPF.

On 28 February 2016, the host of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver launched into a lengthy segment about Donald Trump, which culminated with encouragement from Oliver to use Trump's ancestral surname, "Drumpf."

Trump talks like an angry mullet wearing drunk guy doing a cameo with Archie Bunker on “All in the Family.”

"Are you from Mexico?" BALLS! He's just keeps doubling down!

They Have Met The Enemy And It IsThem

I've known for years that Republicans, generally speaking, have no sense of irony nor do they possess the abilities of self-reflection or to be self-critical or to admit failure. Yet at times, they still leave me slack-jawed in disbelief that they can be so absolutely, utterly obtuse.

And today, reading Rep. Paul Ryan's "denunciation" of Donald Trump for refusing to denounce or disavow the endorsements of David Duke and several White supremacist groups left me with such a reaction.

BERNIE'S FIGHT IF OUR FIGHT - DO WE BELIEVE IN OURSELVES?

"We are the ones we've been waiting for". I hear democrats saying that Bernie's platform is unrealistic. It's up to us to make it realistic by seeing this fight as our fight. Our action, our mobilization, our participation. We have to believe in our ideals, our goals. Also education for all is important because we don't want the population to divide into the "givers" and "takers" - we all must have skin in the game. Just like social security - income determinants are another way to divide us.

Rigged: “State Dept Wins Clinton Email Fight” and hillary gets away scot free when the rest of us would go to jail.

so now Hillary can become president and enact the TPP as well as shit all over the 99% in god only knows what kind of fashion.

I added that because I just don’t know any more if people can see cause and effect.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
