The Fairy Tale of Moral Superiority and Jim Crow

| February 27, 2020

If old boomers and the younger members of the generation before them ended segregation due to poor operational performance, then they cannot claim either economic or moral superiority to their ancestors. The reason that Jim Crow was taken down was not moral but practical. The official reason was that separate but equal wasn’t really equal. […]

Millennials and Boomers – A Probation Analogy

| February 25, 2020

What people are conceding is that if millennials turn out, Sanders will defeat Trump. But if they do about what they did in 2016, Trump may squeak by. And in that scenario of low turnout Biden is a sure bet to beat Trump while Sanders is on shaky grounds. But i do believe millennials are […]

The 1% isn’t White, the 99% isn’t non-white

| February 25, 2020

The best way I can put it is that if you think the people who marched in charlottesville are the “ruling class” (they are ideologically flawed) and Barack Obama is an oppressed person, you have a pretty serious ideological flaw. Because all you will do is frustrate already frustrated working class whites and change the […]

The Cold War, Millennials and the Election

| February 25, 2020

I’ll say this now. Republicans are a little too confident that cold war politics will make Bernie’s “Socialism” a campaign ender. Young people don’t care about the cold war, they’re hurting economically and they don’t want to see more milton friedman and ronald reagan. Everyone knows that there are authoritarian capitalist societies and more democratic […]

Mixing Music and the Economy (an analogy)

| February 25, 2020

Music isn’t just about volume it’s about volume and sonic qualities at certain frequencies. Saying the economy is strong is a lot like saying the volume is turned up high. It doesn’t mean that there aren’t certain frequencies in your mix that are at low volume or that have annoying chalkboard sounding sonic qualities at […]

Biden and Unions

| February 25, 2020

I’m convinced that unions need to be much bigger, much more aggressive and much more openly at war with corporations. I just saw an interview with Biden, and his dad told him that the only thing that can stop business tyrants is power stopping power. In other words corporations will exploit you and it’s kill […]

Biden’s Error

| February 25, 2020

Where Biden is making a mistake is that most Democrats support Obama meaning if we went back in time and it was Obama vs McCain they’d vote for Obama again. But they don’t support him THAT much, that because Sanders is different from him that Sanders is sort of like committing a heresy. Obama is […]

On Blaming Baby Boomers

| February 23, 2020

My tactics are divisive and ugly but they will work. Boomers are a well deserved foil. Extreme changes often have a group that is blamed, whether it be the business class, the monarchy, jews, whatever. But I think Boomers actually really deserve what I’m giving them. I’m such a moral guy, because I target a […]

Sanders, Trump and the Color Barrier

| February 23, 2020

After Nevada, Sanders has broke the color barrier. In 2016 Sanders was like Trump or Buttigieg or Warren in that he could only get white votes. The way Bernie did it was that in areas that are majority black or brown, bernie essentially lets them run their own affairs. He doesn’t have white staff in […]

Reverse Racism

| February 23, 2020

Reverse racism can be enacted by non-whites and it can be enacted by ethnic outsider whites against other whites. But usually the cause of it is a desire to be even handed. It’s like a kid’s soccer game, where the ref is the dad of one of the people playing. He may make a bunch […]
