We are 46 days into the year:
Trump has been impeached and acquitted. And is fully using the Justice Department to re-write history and exact revenge on his “enemies”.
The Democrats, in response, are poised to nominate a (declared on video) Soviet-loving, conscientious objector, 78 year old, self-described Socialist.
Something something Nigerian “sock puppet” something Buttigieg disproven conspiracy theory Lis Smith something.
Coronavirus, the worst flu season in a decade.
Richard Dawkins is trending because he thinks what we should all be talking about right now is eugenics (and how it would totes for real work).
Bernie Saunders is considered a whatever socialist or communist in America only. In the rest of the western world he’d be center left given the ideas he espouses. And given that he is not a corporate shill like most of the favourites the democratic machinery is forcing on voters, he is the only one who can appeal to the masses of angry Trump voters who unfortunately will decide the next election.
Gotta disagree with some of this, Mim. Bernie has no chance against Trump, if only because doubling the debt that Trump is already growing by leaps and bounds disqualifies him. Not that Congress would let him do much of his program. Including most Democrats, mercifully. And he calls himself a socialist.
He honeymooned in the Soviet Union and has supported Castro and Venezuela.
That too. The Republicans would have a field day with that and everything else.
