Elizabeth Warren On What A Presidential Bid Would Mean

Elizabeth Warren On What A Presidential Bid Would Mean

Commented Jun 2, 2014 at 13:45:38 in Politics

“The GOP choice is likely to be another Bush. Warren, as good as she is and as popular as she is, does not have what it takes. She has lots of populist ideas, but in the end we need someone to lead in a world where the US is no longer the sole hegemonic power on the block. She is not strong enough to deal with Putin - or Xi or any number of other challenges. I am not saying that Hillary is the best choice, but if we truly want to boot the GOP / TP to the curb, we need a candidate that has even more power and experience behind them than Warren has.

The country is done with inexperienced members of Congress, and the thought of another Bush in office sours just about every stomach.”

“Even without this confirmation, Jolie was signed to this project by Stacy Schiffwho penned a bio of Cleopatra some three years ago. Schiff confirmed it on Charile Rose then that Jolie was more likely than not going to be playing the role.

The film might prove interesting. The book was wretchedly researched, however.”

“Let's get to the real root cause: People are generally cruel to one another, and too many parents teach their kids that they are ever-so-special yet forget to teach them manners such as please and thank you, not being beligerent to others and especially on how to get along with each other.

Schools, towns, etc. for their part are so worried about being sued that they put in place zero tolerance policies and rather than having any sort of negotiation when there are difficulties, they just banish people if problems arise. In other words, any sort of culpability or responsibility is abdicated all the way around - and those who are victimized get blamed yet again.”

“I am sick of people like Paul Ryan, who will never themselves ever face crippling poverty at any ooint ever in their lives, being the ones who make policy for those who do face such a thing.. How far from their alleged "Christian Values" do these people need to stray before the world sees them for what they are - soulless and almost completely without compassion - unless of course there is a photo op to be had or it is politically expedient for their own careers.”

“It is up to those of us with at least a little common sense left to not allow that to happen. Too many people do not understand why Citizens United I and II are such horrifically bad pieces of legislation.”

“Absolutely it's up to us.

We can't rely on the media to get the truth out anymore, and we can no longer depend on what used to be the last defense of the Constitution and our rights as Americans -- the supreme court. It has been bought and paid for like all right-wing politicians, and no longer deserves to be spelled with capital letters.”

“Since we are so literal about the bible, Robertson family, how do y'all feel about the part int he bible that says to pray to the Father in private and not loudly in the streets like the Pharisees do: Matthew 6:5-6 . Or how about the one that you and yours should really thorougly consider and that would be: "Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matthew 7:1.

Please....Get back to us when you can put just those two Christian tenets into actual practice.”

Donald Rumsfeld: 'A Trained Ape' Would Be Better At Foreign Policy Than Obama

Commented Mar 26, 2014 at 22:41:32 in Politics

“Mr. Rumsfeld: I do not think you are qualified to even speak about successful foreign policy when you were warned repeatedly about how ill-advised it was to go into Iraq. However you and Vice President Cheney were convinced that sending US troops would be a simple mop up operation and that the Iraqi people would simply be awed and forever grateful for throwing off the yoke of Saddam.

You do remember the US actually created the whole situation with Saddam, yes? Remember in the early 80's when the Shah of Iran was deposed and suddenly Saddam was our "buddy"? US ineptitude toward Middle Eastern affairs came to a climax and reached their lowest point ever in the history of the world - further it happened on *your* watch.”

“Amen to that, Jon B. Higher education should be fundamental human right - not a privilege for the few who can "afford:" the outrageous pricetag that is now attached.”

“Are you NOT aware of bonded indebitcure services ? It's just a nicer way of putting the idea of SLAVERY/. Wage slavery...ever hear of that? You might want to study has been the norm to the south of us in Mexico, Central and South America and how many of our corporate CEOs and "elected" officials have cottoned on to the idea that if you keep people poor, dependent and indebted to you - then you have absolutely no reason to educate them or provide any sort of means for they and/or their children to ever rise out of such a situation.

Do NOT preach to me about opportunities, Christopher. I cut my teeth on civil rights and have been involved my whole life, I fought for my education on every level and paid every dime...no bingo bucks for me to get thet even though that man on the $20 in your back pocket split my family apart onto two reservations. I made my own way -and have my own home and business....but I am not averse to helping those in need. I have seen too much to be hoodwinked into believing that men like Paul Ryan have anything but their own interests in mind whenever they legislate anything.”

“It's too easy to use that argument about private property vs. communism argument - especially when the wealthy and the investment firms keep moving the bar ever upward to make private home ownership absolutely something of the past - and all the serfs at the bottom, as Mr. Ryan would have it, are paying rent for the rest of their days.

Making this country equitable and fair for more people was something that fought long and hard for and the few at the top, the corporate interests and the exceedingly wealthy would like to see the return of aristocracy. If they had their druthers, they/d not pay any of us at all and indentured servitude, if not outright slavery would return.”

jstanavgguy on Mar 11, 2014 at 23:16:50

“Sorry, but the 13th AMendment is not going to be repealed, so you do not need to worry about slavery or indentured servitude.

And the thing that is 'fair' is everyone having an opportunity.

You get what you make out of life.”
