Bill Barr is trying to tamp down open rebellion in the Department of Justice. That won't make his boss happy.
Remember: our "crazy idea" of universal health care is a reality in:
I don't hear bankers complain about "big government" when taxpayers hand them a trillion-dollar bailout.
I don't see drug companies grumble when "big government" gives them patent monopolies to charge sky-high prices.
I don't know who's more corrupt: Wall Street or Big Pharma.
I see that the right is worked up that we pointed out the myth of bootstrapping when 60% of the wealth in this country is *inherited.*
But hey, if you think I’m hopelessly dumb, try listening to MLK talk about “bootstrapping” & the racial wealth gap, too:
Trump is a bully and a coward. The way to beat him is to walk up to him, laugh in his face, and dare him to do anything. Nancy Pelosi did. Mike Bloomberg is doing it. It drives him crazy. Keep it up.
Grandstand with empty bravado while giving Trump vote wins on trade and war. Brilliant gestures indeed.
@mehdirhasan This is true. But why are most of the trolls centered around one candidacy? The cultish threats of "my candidate or nobody" too? When we start seeing authoritarian behavior on The Left, we need to stand up. Or they will do to us what the Tea Party did to the GOP.
You're playing right into the hands of lobbying interests, or you are one of those hands? Cliff? Used to like you on MR. But a job's a job, I guess.
Not mentioned during #SOTU:
- The climate disaster

- The healthcare coverage he took away
- His tax scam for the rich
He did celebrate Rush Limbaugh. That's one.
