Like I said, Chang is not a leader, a strategist at best

We are all for the worse if he fades to black

He's the only one talking about the singular issue that will define this decade

I liked Yang's forward looking opinions but not his position on gun control.

Still like Tulsi, but she's going nowhere.

No matter though, I'll still vote for Trump. Great work ethic. Does his best to keep promises. Brutally honest, tends to exaggerate and politically incorrect at times.

Both Young and Tulsi are after the 2nd
To ME, that's a bigger deal killer than any other.
Amazing how many socialists America has spawned.

Yang is only 45- he's known for a while that he has no chance to win the nomination in 2020, but he's going to be around for quite some time if he wants to stay in politics, and now he has name recognition where before he essentially had none. It's the same with Buttigieg (though he still could he running in 2020), who's only 38. Even Klobuchar, at 59, is far from done no matter what happens this year.

This is the last chance for Bernie, Biden, and Warren (they're really all too old to be running now), but the younger candidates have several more election cycles in which to participate.

I really wish this constant democratic update shit would stop. At this point any news about the democratic party isn't much more than watching people at a bus stop. Who's in? Who's out? Who gives a fuck.

The Dysfunctional party has shown that they are non existent in the grand scheme of things.
OOOHHHH Bernie has the gullible vote locked down!

The ONLY thing that will save the dysfunctionals in 2020 is if (and some say when) Hillary barges in to save every American from white America.
Until that bitch shows up the party of disarray is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

What kind of a fuck lipped rainbow warrior would summarize that I support Hillary Clinton?
Does that look like what I wrote?
Maybe there is too much glitter in your news feed for you to see clearly.
There is NO competition for Trump- at all and that is fucked.

Telling me that every little hanging on and clinging to minority that falls from the Dysfunctional Party shit show is a waste of everyone's time.

TV, Radio, Internet, Social Media, Newspapers.....9 more months of this shit? Really?

Sorry.

Didn't mean to get you upset.

The only stance that Gabbard gets right is "starting meaningless wars"

The rest of her views are as socialist as they get...
Gun control
Free school
Free healthcare
Taxation of higher income
Social programs up the ass...

Well I get that, but what I was getting after was when BigHock BigHock says he soured on her after watching that vid, 'I'm like well what'd you expect she's a Democrat?'



BTW

Don't get me wrong, the Dem platform causes me to break out in a rash...

Having said that, I feel student debt forgiveness and UBI (at the very least) will be necessary evils

The hole has been dug too deep at this point, coupled with the machines coming for our jobs, I don't see any way out of it

Income disparity kills every civilization at some point

At some point wealth is harvested by privilege instead of competence. When that happens, it's almost impossible to reverse the march to doom

The other stuff...woke culture, gender politics and open borders, are recent and mostly unique to America but taking root in the rest of the civilized world at large (the West and Japan) which is IMHO rooted to a great deal in the loss of religion, family and procreation (even Japan is opening their borders since their birthrate won't sustain them...Japan more than anyone is on the road to extinction)

I don’t remember her ever speaking about the basic income shit Yang was touting. Now all of a sudden she will carry the torch just for votes?? I don’t like it. Too easily swayed.

Plus I dig calling people ‘cunts’! Yeah, I’m that juvenile.

Personally I give 2 shits about "student debt". Don't want to have any? Work your ass off or join the service. I'm pissed off enough at having to pay ever increasing school taxes when I have no children, and watching the government fuck with schools and provide poorer and poorer education every year just so the stupid kids can keep up with the smart ones.

the problem is you now have millions upon millions of folks who owe billions upon billions of student loans.

aint really a shock that more and more of them are in favor of candidates who claim to want to "make that go away".

just like folks with investment accounts and money in the bank vote for trump knowing hes going to keep making their money grow....

pandering has been a political tool since politics was invented...who would ever vote for someone you didnt feel had YOUR best interest in mind.

"Don't want to have any? Work your ass off or join the service. "

Even better, get adopted by Lori Loughlin...



You want to pay school taxes because you don't want to be surrounded by stupid people, and because you hope competence is makes its way to places you need it. Do you want your doctor to be from privilege, or competence? Because the two are often mutually exclusive

I do take your point about 'poorer and poorer' education. The issue there is teachers and their sense of entitlement, but that's a convo for another thread...

In my area the teachers are not becoming millionaires off our tax dollars. Most of the cars in the school staff lots are older cheap models. They sometimes spend their own money for supplies for the kids.

I definitely can't complain about school taxes if the school budget is that low.

To get a good education you need good teachers which means attracting them to teach here.

While I love low taxes I think local school systems could stand to have a bigger budget so I wouldn't mind if my taxes went up a hair for that. I definitely don't want a generation of drop outs wandering around at night looking for places to break in or things to steal.

I'd like to see a good IG inspection of most schools to see where the money goes....

I know most of our local schools here only run classes in the 20 to 24 student to a teacher range. When I went to school, it was common to have 35 or 40 kids in a class. The little school my wife's niece teaches at has 2 Kindergarten classes, 15 in one, 17 in the other.

"I definitely can't complain about school taxes if the school budget is that low."

It's not the size of the budget, it's how it is managed

"To get a good education you need good teachers which means attracting them to teach here."

Good teachers (or anyone for that matter) fall apart after they enter an environment where there is no incentive to execute

When Florida was selling The Lottery to the voters, they claimed the money generated from the Lottery would go to the schools. Some of it does.

Does the Florida Lottery pay for public education? Voters passed the Florida Lottery to supplement the existing state education budget. It has since served to supplant money from the state. This year, the Lottery will not pay for even a single day of K-12 education. It now helps pay for college Bright Futures scholarships.
Is Florida 50th in the nation in school funding? According to the 2010 US Census, Florida ranks 50th in per capita spending on K-12 education and 41st in per pupil spending.

The filthy nasty pile of shit whore that lives next door used to be on the county school board, they make a shit load more money than the teachers and don't really do shit.
