But that’s iffy due to a more advanced Russian campaign of election manipulation.
The likes of google, facebook, and twitter are engaged in far more advanced, much further reaching election manipulation than the Russians could ever dream of accomplishing. And their attempts at manipulation are actually working - look at just how sympathetic people under 30 as a group are towards socialism. Just 20 years people like Bernie Sanders would be viewed as a fringe extremist. Today - his ideas are view as mainstream by the people who are addicted to big tech.

Yep.
Anti-capitalism and anti-corporation, being spewed on corporate-made phones, computers and tablets using corporate internet providers and search-engines.
"We are are against corporate greed"....says the Mcdonalds worker demanding 15 and hour to goof off, talk about private stuff with coworkers, and walk aimlessly around while you watch your food just sitting there behind the counter. Yes....this happened to me. Dude couldnt even ring up the right order on the register. But hey, $15 for that incompetence.

“Greed is Good.” — Wall Street (movie) character Gordon Gecko.

Nope. Bridled greed is good. Which is capitalism including sensible regulations.

Unbridled greed is bad. Capitalism minus regulations.


Democrats favor bridled greed.
Republicans favor unbridled greed.

It’s all capitalism. Not socialism.

Watch this clip and tell me Joe Biden still has all of his marbles. This guy's losing it.



I almost feel sorry for the guy.

I agree with you, bmw.

Biden is the placeholder candidate. He's the candidate many Dem primary voters say they support only because they haven't made up their mind as to who they will actually support. As we enter 2020, his numbers will sink.
