To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed.--TL Simons

Dems in Action: $15 and a Wet Dream

The trend continued on the second-to-last day of platform negotiations in Orlando, Florida, when Clinton surrogates on Friday rejected an amendment supporting the creation of a postal banking system, modeled on the one in North Dakota, as well as measures that would end corporate welfare and lay penalties on companies for offshoring jobs, lift the $250,000 income cap on the social security tax, and expand cost of living increases for senior citizens' social security benefits.--NK

I know all of Hillary Clinton's robots will be rich one day; why else would they deny Social Security cost of living initiatives in the Democratic platform committee sessions?  Ha, ha...

Seems like just yesterday when Thomas Frank penned What's the Matter with Kansas?, a book questioning why poor people in that state (it's true everywhere) vote against their own best interests every chance they get.

As the wealth gap grows in the U.S. huge swaths of Democrats can't be persuaded to Listen, Liberal.

O woe...
