  1. I am leaving this forum. I liked the challenge of making a good arguement. But it seems I am not wanted here, so I will leave. Thanks for the years of discussions.
  2. The move on guidance seems to be getting lost.
  3. You mean the suggestion that one is an embarrassment is not personal?
  4. Your comments are old (you said you would stop). The cesspool personalization and mob are old. Just discuss the damn topic. It is not that hard if you have the intelligence to make actual arguements.
  5. Your need to make things personal seems to be a contageous sickness on this forum. Can you please refrain from being so juvenile? These companies would have still come to New York regardless. They are not instead of. The Amazon jobs were lost. I am not embarrassed one bit as I have stated New York is a thriving and desireable area and will be fine. And just a note, I bet all these companies are getting a tax break package. Why no protests?
  6. AOC chief of staff confirms: Green New Deal was not really about the climate The chief of staff for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated that her signature Green New Deal was not really about saving the planet after all. In a report by the Washington Post, Saikat Chakrabarti revealed that "it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all ... we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing." --------- At least this guy is honest. Just slap a nice name on it and people won't even look at the details.
  7. As if calling someone a Republican Fascist is really better than just a fascist. The only difference between a democratic socialist and socialist is implimentation. The end result is still government control of resources. I find it ridiculous that one is somehow insulting and one isn't.
  8. Having a one-dimentional representation focused purely on economic freedom is not very meaningful and using Nazi at the far end is not helpful. It should be at least two-dimensions including axis for both economic and personal freedoms/controls.
  9. I am not talking out if both sides of my mouth It is simply used to mean those who advocate for expansion of government spending and control. Certainly if you are not a fan of bigger government you see that as a negative. But that is not fear-mongering, it is descriptive and accurate. If it is so derogatory, why do Bernie and AOC call themselves Democratic Socialists? Fascist is derogatory because it is associated with Nazi Germany. Trump does not consider himself a Republican Fascist. Nobody wants to be called a fascist. It is the same as calling some a Nazi. Apparently using real fear-mongering terms like fascist and concentrations camps is ok. But using benign term like socialism is offensive. The inconsistency and hypocrisy lies with the left.
  10. The concept of the Justice Democrats is radically different. Their vision is more like a franchise where they take their cookie cutter platform, raise all the money, organize the campaigns, and the candidate just follows the script. They want to create hundreds of these candidates and effectively take over the country. Yes, the Heritage Foundation wants to influence policy, but they are not trying to take over the government with their army of cloned politicians. So far the Justice Democrats have had far more failures than successes, but that is their strategy and goal.
  11. They all played key roles in the Sanders campaign who is a socialist. AOC proudly calls herself a democratic socialist. I am truly baffled why you think a term they use on themselves is some kind of insult. It is a lable they proudly wear.
  12. Yes, she volunteered. I don't doubt she shares similar values. But she played no role in crafting the platform she ran on nor the Green New Deal. She does share many of their ideals and is willing to run with whatever they give her.
  13. 10,000? I did not say everyone who applied were socialists. I am talking about the founding members of the Justice Democrats and AOC herself.
