I hope he allows your benevolent companies to cause rivers to catch on fire again and smog to reach Beijing levels. I hope he legalizes leaded water and forces your children to work in factories. Enjoy 1950 you dumbfucks.
    Okay, you want to seethe and feel righteous, they want to win. The obvious Nash optimum here is for them to win. Congratulations on your great strategy.

            Mutually assured destruction.

            I don't feel righteous, more like I'm in Darwin's cheering section hoping for just deserts. To me I would laugh to see a fracking site next to every Trump supporters house oozing out poison all while the hillbillies yell "yee-haw".

                  I think it's going to be a bash-a-palooza against Bloomberg and I think enough of it is going to backfire to actually raise Bloomberg's stake. I think the "I hate the rich" rhetoric is going to self destruct and I suspect Bernie is possibly the best friend in government that the upper class gate keepers have ever had.

                  Example, every time they talk about raising the minimum wage to 15 an hour nation wide I think about how many people I'm going to have to lay off while the big companies and retailers can just raise prices, small business, especially small manufacturers selling high-end boutique or quality over quantity products will just have to shut down and give up market share. I already pay 14 an hour starting but not everyone has that luxury.

                    He has the cash, though, and is beholding to exactly nobody AFAIK. Classic disrupter.

                    In fact, I bet he is in cahoots with Trump...yeah, I just figured it out. Why Bloomberg is running...

                    Nobody likes small businesses because you guys do not have deep enough pockets to keep all the palms greased.

                      Just wanting to keep the election stuff in the election thread and the Trump stuff in the Trump thread. So continuing here.


                      I agree that Bloomberg's performance in the debate was pretty bad. He seemed to start to get a little better in the second hour. But the first hour seemed like an initiation ritual for participating in the debate.

                      Warren had all guns blazing which was some of her best stuff. I thought she was pretty good.

                      Bloomberg calling Berny a communist was pretty epic. He didn't like that.

                      Everyone seems to be counting Bloomberg out, now. But I don't think so. I think he will be prepping a lot before the next one and it will go differently.

                      Buttiegeig has been having some really good moments talking about Trump and Bloomberg's marriages and improprieties while complimenting his own marriage. Those are some really good points and I like the tact he is taking there. I think it is some pretty good stuff to throw at the typical conservative Christian republican base. Probably won't work, but nice to see someone throwing stones at those glass houses.

                      I think it's going to be a pretty entertaining year if they keep this up. Right now the Dems two main hopefuls are a Independent socialist and a former republican billionaire. You know that pisses them off.

                        https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/21/polit...nes/index.html

                        (CNN)Republican lawmakers vocally objected to an intelligence briefing assessment that Russia prefers President Donald Trump to win in 2020 — and Rep. Devin Nunes of California, a close Trump ally, told the President about the election meddling briefing, according to a person familiar with the matter afterward.

                        Trump was irritated that he had to learn about the briefing — in which lawmakers were warned the intelligence community believes Russia is already taking steps to interfere in the 2020 election with the goal of helping Trump — from a lawmaker and not from his own officials, the person said.
                        The President expressed frustration that "it's happening again," the person said, referring to his perception that political rivals, including House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, were able to weaponize intelligence related to Russia.
                        Trump's Republican allies pushed back during the briefing against the assessment that Russia was helping Trump, arguing that the President has been tough on Russia, according to a source familiar with the matter.

                          It can be forever debated who Russia prefer to be president and I cant see how that could be particularly clear to Russia themselves either given the often complexity of decision making and policy in the US.

                          The meddling objective is far more likely to have a broader agenda like simply causing chaos and division making the US regardless of the leader a weaker and a less effective adversary.

                          That is of course unless you believe Trump is a Russian asset in which case i am sorry to hear about the death of your leader Mike Hughes at the weekend.

                            Meh..... People think it is about which president. I said it much earlier, it is about payback. The US helped break up the USSR and installed a puppet government that eventually failed. Putin would go down in Russian history if he ruined America in a similar fashion.

                              He wants welfare for all and looks like he wasn't to tax the rich people a shit ton to pay for it.

                              He wants to get rid of college debt and make education more affordable. Not sure how he pays for that.

                              He wants to raise the federal minimum wage.

                                Not feeling it. My quick rebuttals, inline, below:

                                He wants welfare for all and looks like he wasn't to tax the rich people a shit ton to pay for it. - except he does, down below

                                He wants to get rid of college debt and make education more affordable. Not sure how he pays for that. - manufacture more fiat money, or the above

                                He wants to raise the federal minimum wage. - so long as consistent with inflation, I'm not opposed; moving it to whatever they are considering "living wage," today is not the same thing, and they keep trying to equate the two.

                                Against the death penalty. - nope, we should still have it, and with strictest of scrutiny and plenty of opportunity to appeal

                                Boost teacher pay. - what does this even mean? a minimum wage for teachers? I believe that education is probably "underfunded," but this is way too vague to even respond to, especially because it sounds like more nationalization of the education infrastructure.

                                Restrict campaign financing. - hey, corporations are people, too. fix that, first.

                                Ban fracking. - nope, then we become oil dependent, again

                                Universal free meals in schools. - nope, just nope

                                He wants a voluntary buyback on assault rifles. - lol at "voluntary." what happens if you don't volunteer?

                                Pretty much reverse everything Trump did on immigration. - this one is sticky. I believe people should be allowed to come here, so long as they assimilate; that is, the cultural propagation should be flowing from us, not diminishing us.

                                Legalize weed. - sure, never had a problem with that.

                                Scrap past pot convictions. - sure, see above

                                Slash defense spending. - nope.

                                Bring troops home. - yes, if the mission is over. part of that is walking that razor edge on whether we want the fight to be on our shores or abroad. People still want to kill us.

                                Tax the wealthy. - you mean tax the wealthy more. we have a progressive tax system in place, and the wealthy already pay quite a bit of our collective bill.

                                Rural broadband - It's a nifty idea, I'm not opposed, but want more than a 2-word bullet before I sign off on the plan.

                                So, looks like that's his platform. I just wanted to put it down so I could see it written out. All you hear from the media is Socialist and communist.

                                Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.
