No one named "Hickenlooper" will ever attain the Presidency. Or Buttigieg. Or Beto. Or Rapoport.

Shuuuuuut up, my God

You're not involved, you're not an activist, you do nothing to help the cause, and I'm sick of reading your ******* whining.

All my friends like you are the same. They don't do ****, just stomp their feet on social media but do they ever go out and volunteer? Work on a campaign? Run for office? Noooooo, they're on their ******* phones retweeting Naruto memes or doing hot takes on obscure basketball players or calling people "Dad" like that's an insult. **** off.

Do you know who Paul Booth is? Of course you don't. But he was a giant in the labor and anti-war movements. (ib4 you call him just another clueless old white centrist)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_B...abor_organizer)

I went to his funeral in DC, and you know who showed up? Nancy. She did it quietly, with no fanfare, and gave an incredible speech for him.

You know who weren't there? Bernie, AOC, or any of the other so-called "progressives" you like.

Your hate for Nancy is sad, because you're so young and inexperienced that you don't understand anything other than shiny objects like Bernie and AOC. But those people don't do the real work of progressivism, they posture, shout and stomp their feet...i.e., exactly what you do. **** off.

The article points out Israel isn't YET a fully apartheid state

I've volunteered on campaigns before. As well as for other things I believe in.

You know who else doesn't do the real work of progressivism? People who only work to maintain the status quo.

You're sick of my whining, and most of what you do is post conspiracy twitter accounts like a centrist freebird.

1. The status quo is extreme right. So even pushing for a centrist agenda is pretty loony left at this point.

2. Centrist frreeebird is an oxymoron

Keep trying though. Maybe you'll get it when you're 40 and realize you can't call people "old white guys" anymore.

Ahead Of Israeli Election, Netanyahu Pledges To Annex West Bank Settlements



Interesting to see Israel pandering to the far-right and perpetuating human rights abuses. Israel seems to be at a cross roads right now and they may be going full Trump. There is hope though:

Ross has almost finished his padawan training, he's going to be posting Bill Whittle videos in no time. I can feel the force is strong with this one.

That's unfortunately exactly what's happening, and it sucks to see.

Unlike most though, I'm not going to just write off 50+ years of cooperation because of one awful leader.

Speaking of leaders, here is a Republican I could see myself voting for if the (D) field does not improve:

First Republican to challenge Trump
