Listen, Liberal. Whatever Happened to the Party of the People?�

Recommended Posts

Just out this week the author of "What's the Matter with Kansas?" brings us his latest book on the political state of America. It should be required reading for all liberals. Frank details how the Democratic party intentionally abandoned the working class and the New Deal under Presidents Clinton and Obama. They have given us NAFTA, MFN for China, Workfare, mass incarceration, a Wall Street bailout, mandatory subsidies to the insurance industry, etc. Clinton even had a secret deal worked out with Newt Gingrich to privatize Social Security, Thankfully, a blowjob in the Oval Office sidetracked that deal. Our party has been stolen from us. Frank documents how that happened and why.

 

Frank details how we've been sold the great lie that we have to vote for a neoliberal candidate because the Republcans are so much worse. He explains how only a Democrat could have gotten the dismantling of the New Deal passed. How only a Democrat could have deregulated the banks and the derivatives market, which led to the crash of 2008. Most importantly, he explains how we don't have to put up with it anymore. We can take the party back.

    I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems

  • By kfools

    So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • By teacher

    How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.
