Stance on Abortion

| January 27, 2020

I don’t believe outlawing abortion would work unless you went 100% police state. And even though I think the fetus is alive, I’m not willing to make that trade off. I think the best thing you can do is get rid of poverty. In the same way, if you harassed every driver, you’d catch a […]

More on Unions

| January 24, 2020

Unions need to gain power and then they need to say that discrimination for political stance (real or imagined) is just something that won’t be tolerated with no response. And this includes for instance white tech workers who correctly believe their jobs are unfairly being given to Indians who aren’t playing a merit based game […]

A Union Strategy?

| January 23, 2020

I want to start a union that defends people who 1) are critical of the US-Israel relationship 2) speak out against reverse racism and national origin discrimination. Most states do not defend the right to engage in political activity and not be fired but if people started doing everything in the name of a labor […]

Foreign Policy (Biden, Trump and More)

| January 22, 2020

Some misguided people are arguing that if Biden beats Bernie, then Trump is the better choice on foreign policy. Biden was mislead by false information on Iraq. He didn’t lie, he didn’t know. Since then, he has taken reasonable stances on foreign policy issues. Trump on the other hand is a fire starter who tries […]

Comments on Trump and Impeachment

| January 22, 2020

I would have some respect if republicans argued one of two things: 1) What Trump did on the Ukraine was wrong, but it doesn’t rise to the level of removal from office. We’ll just sort of put Trump on probation. 2) Trump was wrong, but Biden was also wrong. Neither should be manipulating foreign countries. […]

Innocent Until Proven Guilty?

| January 19, 2020

When it comes to holding our leaders accountable for unnecessarily military strikes, the mentality cannot be “innocent until proven guilty” especially with someone who is a blowhard and braggart like Trump. Our mentality has to be guilty until proven innocent. Unless we see strong evidence that there is a threat, we assume your justification is […]

Trump, GW Bush and Oneupmansship

| January 18, 2020

I feel what GWB and Trump have in common is that both are trying to “one up” others. Bush was trying to one up his father. His father was involved in a multi national coalition to get Saddam out of Kuwait, and correctly stopped short of regime change. GWB had to go further. Though it’s […]

Democrats Smarter in 2020 than 2016

| January 15, 2020

The Democrats are being smarter in 2020 then 2016. In 2016, the attitude was that Trump was committing some great sin by reaching out to forgotten rural white people. You don’t give those people a voice, it’s just wrong. But now the attitude is more that the sin isn’t that he reached out to those […]

Populism has Failed

| January 15, 2020

Populism has failed. What populism has shown is that the patriotic American people, with just a little working and twisting, can be made to support wars of aggression. I have hopes for Democrats because they aren’t as patriotic as Republicans. Patriotism isn’t a good thing.

Biden on Trump’s Iran Policy (and my response)

| January 14, 2020 This is basically what I’ve said. The Iran deal worked and Trump tore it up for political showmanship. All the things he said “we’re giving Iran x dollars for nothing” “it gives them a path to a nuclear weapon” were not true. Iran had frozen assets – it was their money. Most people gave […]
