The Establishment’s dumping of Joe Biden into the race is all too transparent. Just say no!

The last thing the masses need is the much vaunted bipartisanship, giving the ruling classes a veto against any change towards economic justice, towards a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Obama knew this when he was elected for change with a majority in both houses and said he wanted bipartisanship - that told me he was a fraud. Bernie Sanders in contrast spoke the truth when he said we need a revolution.

Civility? Yeah, speak nice lies while screwing the 99% on everything repeatedly to serve big-money…now Senator Jay Billington Bulworth knew about “civility” - and obscenity…

I’m sorry that I have no sympathy for a population devoid of the ability to see that they have, and continue to enable the corporate parties to undermine any semblance of a real Democracy.

People should check out Rep Tlaib comments on ABC Sunday show This Week . Do we just throw money at a problem or do we demand the system work the way it did in the past ( dealing with Asylum seekers) . This money that many democrats supported will most likely free up money so Ice can go to town on its police state tactics. And as Tlaib points out our immigration system is racist------Its a simple question-----If these kids were blue eyed and blond were would they be ???

And Nancy Pelosi supported the bill that the House passed, even bragging about it passing under her leadership despite those irrelevant liberals like Tlaib who voted against it.

What she left out was that it passed with many more Repub votes than Dem votes. Now which party is Pelosi in again?

> It is extremely dangerous, either in the name of “civility” or “bipartisanship,” to yield to those who seek nothing less than the destruction of democracy

Which of course is what the "democrat’ leadership, Pelosi, Schumer, Hoyer, Biden and Obama have been doing all along

Judas Goats Lying about who they are and what they’re about.
We cannot continue with this crap

Pelosi needs to be crushed

The caption for this photo could be: " Thanks Dick, we’ll take over the money laundering from here."

All Republicans are racists, bigots and misogynists. Some may claim not to be, but they vote for those who are, so they are all guilty by association. The Racist Republican Party needs to to be slayed and buried in a hole so deep it can never climb out no matter how hard the David Brookes and Joe Scarboroughs of the country try to hand it a ladder. All Republicans or centrist “independents” should be treated as social pariahs whenever and wherever encountered. If they are not on the side of working class and poor, then they are the enemy. While destroying the Racist Republicans, the corporate cancer within the Democratic Party needs to be located and excised. If the disease and corruption has metastasized, then a second hole can be dug.

So lets see, it looks like my choices are going to be between the current President; a Pathological Liar, a Dangerous Bigot, a Womanizing Rapist and a sick mentally retarded devotee of destructive Military Weapons.

Despite my Hatred of everything Trump stands for I truly believe that Joe Biden would make a far more dangerous President, based on his wholehearted support and promotion of the Iraq War.
