These Senate Republicans voted to oust Bill Clinton for doing just that:
The lecture, entitled “What Does It Mean To Be White,” was given by University of Washington Professor Robin DiAngelo, a white woman.
The 2018 attacks include the one at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue by a man who blamed Jews for the migrant caravan, the mass shooting at a yoga studio by an “incel” obsessed with interracial dating, and the school massacre in Parkland, Florida, carried out by a student who wished that “all the Jews were dead.”
Another game they play is by using right wing, white nationalism, and white supremacy interchangeably.
“Her biological clock, yes, but also the one to fix global warming, or face the likelihood that she and her potential children will have to live in a seriously marginalized world”
If they are concerned about global warming, they should not have kids. Less people = less human influence on climate.
Here’s the truth. For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. [The Council on American-Islamic Relations] was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that this person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it, and I am going to talk to them and ask them why. Because that is the right you have.
It's ok - the Mormons and Catholics are still producing like rabbits, so they'll save the future world. The leftists in 2 generations will be like Quakers: no children is a recipe for extinction of values. That is, unless dumb parents don't home school and allow the current education system to indoctrinate more leftists. That was the biggest mistake of my life: allowing my kins to go through a liberally skewed California educational system.
Wars are not funded by taxation in countries that have central banks. That's precisely why / the advantage of Bank of England was established in 1694: as a way of funding government war effort by lending to the government during war time. Keynesian government spending during Depression is not funded by tax revenue either: that's the whole point of Keynesianism: justifying government deficit spending during Depression (as a sort of war by choice; hence one of the biggest Keynesians of our time, Paul Krugman, advocated war on imaginary Space Aliens as a way of getting out of the last depression.)
Income from labor is not an even exchange, just like no mutually willing exchange is an even exchange but every such exchange is a pair of inequalities: the buyer thinking the goods/service being worth more than the money he is paying, and the seller thinking the opposite. Otherwise, Nobody would want to go to work after commute cost and taxes.
Typical landlords in 1913 had nothing to do with the imposition of Income Tax; after all, tenants coming home with less after-tax pay would have less money available to pay rent.
Good points, but they have little to do with why income tax was imposed. The various welfare programs listed came about in the late 1960's, more than half a century after the imposition of federal income tax.
And India. Oh boy is India screwed. They say that they have other sources lined up. But that won't save them from the global oil price hikes when Iranian oil goes off the market.
LOL! It's amusing to see how the fiction author jumped from 1935 "Labor Party" seizing power . . . immediately to 2008, skipping all the fun about how the country of Norway was run by "National Socialist . . . Workers' Party" and its local Quislings from 1940 to 1945, which introduced national healthcare, national pension, national education and a whole bunch of other socialist programs to that country.
This is what the Mueller report says was the original purpose of Russian Interference. At some point it changed from general discord and became directed at defeating Clinton and to support Trump. But it seems to me they believed Trump would be the chaos, divisive President they wanted, plus Putin hates Clinton. Basically they used two methods Social media and hacking with a systematic, well timed release of hacked emails through Wiki Leaks. The report summary I linked is a pretty short read.
The truth is that the people were told who they had to vote for, and they did not obey. They elected a complete outsider. This infuriates the elite, who are now busy looking for ways to undermine US democracy, such as abolishing the Electoral College.The Gilets Jaunes in France are exactly the same. They are the peasants too. And the Brexit voters. The British elite are dragging their feet, undermining British Democracy as as well.
So, for the time being, I think the republic will survive. The pendulum swings back somewhat conservative, but give it 20-30 years, and it will swing again.
I saw their pictures. Why are the quotes around Wisconsin and not Women in the headline?
