  • The irony of it is that the Republican vision of America is much closer to modern China (indoctrinated racism & xenophobia, state capitalism that socializes losses, few-to-no laws that protect the environment or consumers, limited voting rights, women as property, etc.) than the Sanders vision.

    • Republican Socialism? Good. Not even called "socialism" even though it fits the definition. Democratic Socialism? Bad. Even though it does not fit the definition.

        I don't think they are, at least not to a level any greater than is normal. There's still plenty of bitterness, rage, and media-stoked fear in the "mediocre white male under 35" demo.

        • Yeah the under 35s may be liberal but not in larger numbers than expected.

              The bad part of the recent triumph of Nazis is white females are the problem. White males are useless, obviously. But white females should, if nothing else, be voting to keep from becoming chattel property.

                Quite a few want to be chattel because they have been conditioned to believe that is their role either by religion, family or likely both.

                    • I was in Cavalier, ND, today. It’s becoming clearer why the Sicatoka is so fucked up. We make jokes about the land being so flat up there, but it really does a number on your head. From a few miles before coming to the I-29 entrance I could see a grain drier doing its thing, chugging up its exhaust, to the south, towards Grand Forks. It was a little more than 15 fucking miles south of the road I was driving. Highway 81 was exit 203, that thing was just north of exit 187. (Their exit ramp numbers correspond to the highway’s mile markers.) That thing wasn’t on a hill. I wasn’t elevated on a hill. There are NO HILLS. That **** does something to you. It’s going to mess with your head, make you lose perspective on things. That poor man.

                        They do this all over the West and it is SO superior a system. I've seen it make inroads (nyuck nyuck) in the East now. It's just forks > chop sticks level better.

                          My insane parents took their 3 kids (under 10) on a road trip from Tennessee to California and back. Twice. Since this was before screens, they did everything they could to keep us entertained. When we were in North Dakota, we had pulled over to the side of the road for a picnic lunch, and the discussion turned to just how far away the tree was. Yes, THE tree that we could see off in the distance. I think the high guess was about 8 or 10 miles. We started driving, watching the odometer like hawks. It was 27 miles to that fucker. I will never forget that - we just could not believe how flat…and desolate…it was.
                          If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                            Yep. New Hampshire finally switched over to exit=mile marker while I was at Dartmouth. And that was almost 20 years ago. I can't believe it took that long.

                                Mostly the New England states that think exit numbers actually mean something.
