  1. ^^^ is that supposed to be some shocking revelation? Bernie has always been an independent, he runs on the Dem ticket because it’s the pragmatic choice. It’s a large reason he doesn’t get a lot of support from the powers that be in the Democrat party.
  2. Canada is not super progressive. We're just not quite as bad as the US in terms of treating corporations like royalty, and we think that a healthy population costs less than one that can't afford to go to the hospital/get treatment. We have a shit ton of problems up here but there's still some civility left in politics. Still a ways to go in trying to achieve equal opportunity (not equal outcomes). And from time to time we have to put up with our own silliness (yes I'm looking at you, former home province....the texas of the north...alberta), but it's nothing like the gong show in the states.
  3. So you wouldn't want Biden's healthcare policy? https://www.vox.com/2019/7/16/20694598/joe-biden-health-care-plan-public-option How about his policies for unionization? https://joebiden.com/empowerworkers/ You'd prefer instead to hand that vote over to the Republican candidate (Trump) whose policies on labour empowerment are shocking. I have to provide links to reporting on his actions, because his website doesn't seem to have any policy proposals. https://www.americanprogressaction.org/issues/economy/reports/2019/08/28/174893/president-trumps-anti-worker-agenda/ https://www.jacobinmag.com/2019/10/donald-trump-labor-unions-workers (note, jacobin is a very left publication, although their reporting is usually excellent, they do have a strong bias) https://www.courthousenews.com/trump-asks-court-to-quickly-reinstate-anti-union-orders/ Or Trump's healthcare policies (which would cause healthcare costs to rise)? https://www.thebalance.com/how-could-trump-change-health-care-in-america-4111422 https://www.politico.com/story/2018/11/28/obamacare-insurance-numbers-drop-995227 (I had to include this "defense" of Trump's health policies, because even though they're serious, it sure reads like satire. Use google cache or just time it right to stop the page fully loading to the part where it asks for you to turn off your adblocker) https://www.forbes.com/sites/johngoodman/2019/08/13/we-already-know-what-the-trump-health-plan-is My favourite quote: "For example, most people in hospital emergency rooms don’t really need to be there. With an iPhone and an app or two, most of them could be examined in the comfort of their own homes." Yeah, reading on that, ti seems like Biden doesn't quite get how 230 of the CDA works. But you know what? I bet he'd be better at listening to people try to explain it to him than Trump (whose brain is so huge he understands everything anyways). Again - is Biden the best the Dems have to offer? fuck no. Is he 1000 times better than Trump? Fuck yes (haven't even touched on climate change or other big issues). It's really a no-brainer. Apologies for the long rant - it's not directed at anyone here (well nebraska a little bit lol, but i still got lots of love for you man), but damn y'all need to do something to try and turn the ship around a little bit.
  4. i pick #3 Isn’t that effectively handing a vote over to the republicans?
  5. If Biden gets the nomination, would you: Vote for him, Write-in a vote, Not vote, Vote for the Republican candidate (possibly Trump) Also, do you recognize that people can change their views over time through education and experience? 1977 was 42 years ago my dude. He's clearly not the best choice for a progressive agenda, and if I were an American I wouldn't want him as the Dem nominee either. But is he better than any Republican? 100%
  6. Sounds like a normal day to me. More like FWS - maximizing awake time!
  7. Look at this fucking shit: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-impeachment-trial-today-twitter-press-conference-senate-a9287651.html
  8. That Warren/Sanders "controversy" is literally, not figuratively, literally, the least important thing about the Democratic primaries. But you can guarantee that it will be repeated loudly and often by the Warren supporters. Same thing with that picture of Warren applauding after a Trump speech and Sanders' supporters. What are their policies, how will they work with colleagues (both Dem and Rep) to enact their policies, how will they pay for them, and what will the impact on the American people be. Fuck all the circus. Apologies for election interference, eh.
  9. 100% always been "full of memory". Have heard the song about 4,000 times since it came out.
  10. Who knew there were that many edits of the boys’ first album!
  11. Point 1: you said exactly what I said, except you seem certain about what’s going on inside trumps head. He really did blink, and he’s given up a lot for no return. OPEC produces 44% of the world’s oil. 21% of the world’s natural gas. https://www.statista.com/topics/1830/opec/ They still have considerable influence on prices. If they decide to screw with the US, it wouldn’t be difficult. Saudi relations with the US are the same as they’ve been since relations started, barring the 70s. But with the US increasing production, Saudis might see that as a threat to their economic livelihood. That’s just one scenario. There are likely other reasons that I can’t think of hungover on a Saturday. The PM who resigned in November last year? Yeah i guess he was more opposed to the US, but he still had interests that aligned more with US foreign policy than with Iran. Doesn’t matter though, Trump has done amazing work for the Iranians.
