    I feel like Elizabeth Warren is a good representative of Lisa Simpson. So since the Simpsons predicted the Trump presidency so shall it predict Lisa Simpson following him.

    Of course, he was our Al, but in talking to a few Democratic activists in Minnesota, Gillibrand probably shouldn't stop by here.

    Looks like Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland is thinking about running. Interesting that his father was the first Republican congressman to support the removal of Nixon.

    Gillibrand is dreadful. Love the irony of her getting roasted for the Franken stuff. Should she survive long enough, I look forward to her prior views on guns and immigration coming up.

    All Dem candidates that support, take one step forward for each:

    ✅Green New Deal
    ✅Medicare for All
    ✅$15 Min Wage
    ✅Free College for All
    ✅Black Lives Matter
    ✅Pro-choice no exceptions

    Take another step for each year you’ve acted on that support. The leader gets my vote.

    you sound like the curmudgeon that asked that same question when Kennedy said we would go to the moon.

    Or that loner that kept telling his girlfriend they would have a family "when they can afford it"

    Do yo know what age has granted me Grasshopper ?
    If you wait until you can afford it, you never get anything worth havng.

    let's set goals

    So I should go buy a $100m house and figure it.out later?

    I've walked you through the impossibility of the math. I get that you can't grasp it but "let's spend now and figure it out later" is an unacceptable answer to get the public to support the plan

    nothing to do with spending.
    We haven't spent a dime.
    Lets align our goals then work toward achieving them
    .................................................. ..............................................

    you think a $100M dollar house will Photoshop your fingers longer ?
    I would think 1/4 to 1/2 M might be your range

    if you get luckey enough to afford ever a $100M and that is your goal
    go for it

    But, pay for it

    Right. Pay for it.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    How do we pay for your freebies? Doubling tax rates on everyone wouldn't even pay for our current spending.

    You have not a clue on the legislative process.
    We are 300M people with divergent interests.
    Let us first figure out what these proposals (goals) look like. According to the representatives of each and every of the 300M
    Once that is taken care of then we figure out what we can afford..
    ala ACA

    For a guy that spouts "the constitution - the constitution" at every turn you apparently have little idea how it works

    ...............

    same as the poster today that asked why Obama didnt fix the pipes in Flint

    So what you are basically saying is that these politicians are promising something that they won't deliver.

    Figured.

    The people that advocate the agenda you posted above don't want to build coalitions. They want to beat the competition into submission and stick those items down our throats.

    Considering the Democrats have changed their position in the last 10 years to cater to their radicalized based and even further changed their decision on why they don't want it several times in the last few months it hasn't gotten anywhere.

    Trump listened to the wrong people the last two years because the Republicans are bought and paid by big buisness that wants cheap labor. Due to Trumps inexperience/stupidity/arrogance, whatever you want to call it, he is now stuck where its going to be difficult to get that funding. But, even with the big show made of the wall somehow Hispanic Americans support Trump by almost 50%. I guess they are racist?

    I think Kamala Harris is the person to watch in the Primaries, and based on her announcement and slogan, she might just have the right people in place to help her campaign flourish. I came away really impressed with it, and it seems obvious there is someone talented behind its creation.
