Why did Hillary break the law

The email thing is more than just policy which she knowingly ignored. It is also the law.

Why did she ignore the law?

Should any government official obey any law that they find inconvenient?

What about me? Can I choose the [more]

Clinton should suspend campaign

Her votes should be released.

Biden needs to step up to save America from disaster.

Re: Depressing day

Let's see how the email thing plays out in the press and the polls. We still have the FBI weighing in.

Personally, I cannot imagine a worse choice than Trump for President.

Used to be there were a lot of white folks who supported civil rights.

Can you imagine trying to pass the Civil Rights Act now?

How do you think the USSC would vote on Brown, now?

Re: Why no one likes Hillary

Hell bells!

If the Democrats ran JC and St. Paul the Republican machine would tear them up. All that "love your neighbor", "turn the other cheek", "the meek will inherit the Earth" is not Republican religion or [more]

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

The article said 68% of Trump voters were racists. Only 44% of Cruz supporters tested the same. With Cruz gone Trump gets Cruz's racists. We're talking two-thirds of the Republican Party is basically racist.

And that's about it. Hillary screwed up

Nonetheless, Hillary exercised poor judgment here. That's been clear for a long time.

Depressing day

It started off by forgetting something I've known all my life. Frogs are amphibians and amphibians are vertebrates. I think I've known that since third grade. I do not find "senior moments" amusing.

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

It was about 15 years ago.

The trades were always treated differently than the Teamsters or factory unions. If you look into it you'll find out the trades got around the right-to-work laws.

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

I understand that which is the reason you can't have unions without closed shops. It's also the reason it is a violation of your membership if you teach a non-member any skills. The problem was the fairness of being able to join.

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

Arguably, that's not a bug - it's a feature. Unions are able to negotiate for higher salaries because they can exclude people from competing for the jobs. That's how they work.

Yes of course. But let's say the [more]

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

I was just talking to an Indian (he's from Delhi) who runs a local store front shop. So I asked how he felt about the election. He said he's tired of supporting all the bums on welfare and food stamps.

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

I think the leadership of the Democratic party changed positions when the union vote ceased to be reliable. Additionally, the Democrats looked into the future and decided supporting labor wasn't a long term tactic.

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

Unions were both racist and misogynistic. They were also nepotistic in the extreme. Factory unions much less so than the trades. The trades still operate that way. Ever notice the GOP never tried to break the trades. What the trades did do was [more]

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

Interesting.

I just came back from the shop where I do my auto repairs. The proprietor is an Archie Bunker type and talking politics with his customers is his hobby.

Re: "Real Progressives"

You are absolutely right.

I think we may have a real Constitutional crisis coming if Hillary is elected. Given the political climate how would a Republican Senate ever allow a Hillary nomination move forward?

Re: Cartoon Lesson

That's the way capitalism works. We used to have unions but that's gone away and now things are as they should be. If we just lower taxes more and get rid of all that government regulation America will be great again. Oh yeah, and get rid of [more]
