thanks for pointing that out auxien: i agree it does sound sexist, although i meant it more as "i think she should endorse someone else, and gun for a seat in a high position of government, rather than the actual seat of presidency". i say this because i see her as hillary 2.0 mainly because:

she plays the female card A LOT from claiming bernie told her in private he never believed a woman could run for office to alleging to being terminated from a teaching position because of her pregnancy. while it worked well against bloomberg when questioned about the numerous NDA's he's had women sign, i really don't see it doing anything against trump whole (like his legion of followers) will simply brush it aside as an evidence of his alpha male prowess. sexist? maybe- and liz should know considering she once identified as republican, having cherokee heritage and claiming that her father was a janitor

warren works well behind the scenes- like when she championed the consumer financial protection bureau and has shown to unravel and bungle when thrust in front of them- like when she couldn't become it's director and ran for senate instead. and then there was the moment when ayanna pressley had to step in and save her from a crowd of (mostly female) parent power protestors interrupted her speech about discrimination. as always, warren came in with a plan, and when things turned left, her brain checked out. if this happens against trump, there won't be anyone to step in and save her then.

btw: guess who ayanna pressley endorsed last time? i'll give you a hint: hillary clinton. and roger lau, her campaign manager, was a former clinton aid.

Somehow...just somehow it seems Americans are in a fierce battle to keep Trump in the White House. The Trumpists, well, that speaks for itself. And all the non-Trumpists...I don't know what's up with them, but it looks they will end up shooting themselves in their foot. With open eyes. Because, well, it's either their way or the highway. Got to admit the Trumpists might have a point when they say the non-Trumpists are insufferable.

And some extra stuff on why it's actual design to have a political system where the majority doesn't automatically rule over the minority. It's tangentially related to that DNC stuff and not having a direct democracy.

they will steal it from bernie, who has by far the greatest support across the country, alienating a huge number of would-be voters and literally hand the next four years to trump and apocalypse. this is a 50/50 chance with bernie winning. the silver lining of this is that it will destroy the democratic party. and i will be in line to beat it to death. a party run by coastal, feckless liberal elites smelling each others farts will never win in this country that is a giant quilt of diversity, in race, in culture, in class. A workers party will rise.

That would be a nice outcome, but I think too many "workers" are wrapped up in conservative BS convinced trickle down economics works, and that illegals are coming for their jobs, for this to happen. I feel like the best we can hope for is for the current party to change... *sigh*

We will just say OK Bloomer is a deconstruction of Ok Boomer and call it a "post-meme"

that's sorta how i figure you meant it yeah, don't remember seeing you ever being sexist or anything similar so didn't think you were trying to: nbd, thanks for not taking it like i was attacking you or anything.

i don't see her as Hilary 2.0 at all, but that's just me. opinions.

plays the female card a lot? there's nothing really particularly funny about the pregnancy story. she seems to have told a more detailed/open version of it, but it still lines up with reality. and even if not, it's not 'playing the female card a lot' if that story is just one small thing barely mentioned and not even used as a huge WIN for her somehow. and anyone could've used that attack against Bloomberg (others have), it wasn't dependent upon her sex.  ....and even if she was playing the 'female card' a lot, well, she is a woman? who's older, and definitely lived in an America that wasn't as kind to women as it is now (tho obviously it's still not in many ways) so.... you have no real argument here at all. yeah she spoke some private shit Bernie said to her, perhaps without the necessary context, okay. that's a little off, but that doesn't mean it's not true nor would it negate literally decades of her life dealing with the casual and/or not-so-casual sexism. 

Warren may or may not be the 'best' candidate to go against Trump, no argument there. she can go against basically anyone that i've seen so far without blinking, so why not Trump? who's better, honestly? maybe Bernie could hold his own alright, and i'm sure Bloomberg would love to get into a knock down drag out sniveling little rich shit tussle back and forth with Trump over how much more money he has or something. whoever might be 'best' against Trump is to me only part of the equation anyway, i want someone in who i feel i can trust more than the others who'll move things in a good direction (and be able to work with others to get that done). that makes Warren the best, for me. there's a very good chance she won't get the nom, ok, but we're not at that point yet so... anyone who is nominated is going to get villified and rile up the Rs to some extent, but the question is who can actually turn out support for the Ds this year? as of now none of them have any proof that they're the one, Warren included.

she was a Republican...okay? what the fuck does that matter? Bernie's not currently even a Democrat lol so :cerious:

she owned up to the Cherokee/'janitor' stuff from what i remember, and it was the lightest stretches of truth/misunderstanding so.... not great but also nbd. if that's THE WORST on her well then she's fucking spotless in Washington DC ffs man. not excusing anything but really y'all can't look at shit in a vacuum, in context she's a motherfucking saint next to almost everyone. 

that Presley video isn't half bad, hadn't ever seen that. seems like they both handled it as best as anybody can imagine. seems like a great thing to have someone like that on her side. dunno the larger context around it but that clip didn't look bad at all and yet you're using it like it's a mark on her record or something? how would you have handled it better, please do enlighten us. 

omg, wait you're telling me that someone who supported Hilary in 2016 is supporting Warren now? whoa that's fucked up tho m8, i hope Bernie Sanders doesn't drop out and start endorsing Warren next, that'll be the death knell for poor Liz. y'know, since Bernie supported Hilary in 2016 too. :cisfor:

and to anyone getting all sorts of excited thinking about how big of a deal it would be if superdelegates ended up having to decide the nominee eventually, just remember: you're on the same side with Jill Stein and Marianne Williamson.

well, supported by working for her campaign. reason i said this is because i see her using similar campaign methods to hillary which is why i said i see her as hillary 2.0.

as for goddesses stein and williamson: i can't imagine two people who's side i'd wanna be on right about now 😋

a worker party will rise and every pathetic liberal will be left behind as the neolib subconscious pseudo-fascist they are.  nothing can stop the workers of the world from uniting against class, the state, and money.

i've had a lot of my cum stolen by dozens of sneaky, conniving females over the years. it's taken a toll on me, constantly worrying if some female is impregnating herself with what is rightfully my own seed, and the struggle of this ever-present fear and anguish has left me a battered and broken man with no social skills or healthy ways to interact with others anymore.

The Republican party is one of the most dangerous organisations on this planet. She must have been either naive or morally bankrupt to join them. Maybe politics to her is something like an intellectual game?
