Frothing aside it does appear that Cruz gave Boebert a lot of cash. Do you think that was for "services rendered" or because the GOP is no longer the "Party of ideas" but is now the "Party of batshit crazy trolls who spew lies and conspiracy theories in order to trigger the libs"?
And that is what I found most disturbing in this revelation.
The seniors are helping recruit these extremists that froth up the voters.
The beard growing has been noticeable. Trying to wear flannel as well. Adopting a persona to appeal to "Chad"...
But I think the same is happening on the left. The players are becoming more extremist. Biden got nominated because all the other shit slung at the wall slid off like diarrhea...
But it was still slung, and more ammo/shit is ready to be slung from both sides...
I think you're confused.
Biden got nominated because Trump was a shitshow, and also because the far left (extremists as you would say) didn't have enough influence to win a nationwide election with Bernie.
I'm not confused in the least.
If that's the best the left could throw out to "not be Trump" then they really suck. They need a complete overhaul of how crazy their extremist end has moved. Both have absurdly bizarre extremist ends.
The difference is the leftâ€™s extremists are mostly ignored, while the righty extremists are making policy, be it at the state legislature level, or the Supreme Court. There is no comparison. You cannot â€śboth sidesâ€ť this with any credibility.
The woke left doesn't bother with policy, they enact their world view through mob justice (social media mobs and mostly peaceful protesting).
Now you just seem to be shouting at the wind. Again, the crazy righties have literally taken over the Republican Party and, to some degree, the Supreme Court. Thatâ€™s a lot more worrying for our country than some woke lefties railing on social media.
The world can handle more than one problem at a time. "But Trump" doesn't negate any and all other issues period. The woke crazies want ironfisted control with zero negotiation. They have not, as of yet, taken over the liberal party. However they do work to control how many corporations act out of fear of being their next target. They sure want to expand and control the Supreme Court and have demanded such.
Youâ€™re just creating bogeymen to try to both sides this. Itâ€™s laughable. This country has two parties that are right of center. The GOP is far right and the Democratic Party is center right. Even the liberal wing of the Democratic Party is only center left when compared to European politics and policies.
Here we go again, Kay and the hate for America. You are too predictable and boring.
Who cares about European policies? You are typically one of the angrier posters on here and never budge on your opinions. I wouldnâ€™t expect you to look at something with your blinders off. Our terrible capitalism provides more support for the rest of the world than anyone. China's belt and road purchases don't count. Sure we need to change some things, but compared to Europe we have outdone them and brought more people and countries into a better life through foreign aid and the American Dream. Why do so many immigrants want to come here?? We have a very diverse base of immigrants turned US citizens. And you just want to compare to homogeneous white Europe countries that serve themselves.
What about my post suggests I hate America?
As for the rest of your post, it seems like you havenâ€™t spent much time in Europe if you think theyâ€™re all homogeneous white countries. And they tend to treat their immigrants a lot better then the US does, so, given the choice, Iâ€™m sure many - even most - would choose to emigrate to a European country over the US.
The point is, your rant against the radical left is just silly. That so called radical left is pushing for things like universal health care, gay marriage, equal pay and more maternity rights for womenâ€¦ you know, things that are actually standard policies in most European and Australasian countries. About the most radical ideas are things like student debt forgiveness, which is getting little traction within the Democratic Party.
Meanwhile, thanks to the radical Taliban-esque GOP, a 10 year old abused child in OH has been denied an abortion. That is real policy, not some pie-in-the-sky wish from a fringe element of the GOP.
It was not ranting against the radical left. It was elucidating why Biden was the best we had to offer for a centrist milquetoast candidate. Why was there not multiple to choose from?
And your posts are typically quite angrily bashing things about the US, especially now labeling one political party the American taliban. Other times you seem to look for people to taunt or electronically "yell" at. You are the epitome of how many liberals behave regardless of core beliefs. Always angry and looking for a fight, yet not willing to concede anything. The far right crazies gain traction due to the same psychological reasons Biden is president. Hate for the extremist ends of our political spectrum.
Universal health care provides more widely distributed health care for free but at a cost of a lower level of service. Why don't you start by yelling for putting the politicians on the same plan at the citizens? Equal pay? That has been debunked plenty. The stats use very unequal backgrounds and years of experience to come up with the gap. The real gap is quite small and attributed to lifestyle and work preferences... kinda like the USWT in soccer where they preferred stability over the sames men's package. However now the women are subsidized by the men to get their "fair share".
Mechanically, the earnings gap can be explained in our setting by the fact that men take
48% fewer unpaid hours off and work 83% more overtime hours per year than women. The
reason for these differences is not that men and women face different choice sets in this job.
Rather, it is that women have greater demand for workplace flexibility and lower demand for
overtime work hours than men. These gender differences are consistent with women taking
on more of the household and childcare duties than men, limiting their work availability in the
process (Parker et al., 2015; Bertrand et al., 2015).
