What in the hell...

Twitter locks out McConnell's campaign for posting video of calls for violence at his home.
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/twi...cconnells-home

Someone please explain that. Is it the video?
I've never used twitter. Is it a policy of some kind?

Some guy from Kentucky is controlling our politics? I say no way. The state has minimal influence on our economy, lets sell it to Greenland.

It's back
https://pluralist.com/australia-bush...ople-arrested/

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat who coauthored the Green New Deal legislation, claimed in a tweet Thursday that her alarmist rhetoric and radical policy proposals had been vindicated by the fires.

in the vein of liberal hypocrisy... we have hollywood telling us guns are evil yet are protected by armed guards, hollywood says walls are immoral yet live in gated communities or homes with oversized barriers, hollywood states we need to be more diverse and open minded yet their award shows honor the same people and snub the same members of other groups and does not mention the racial disparity in sports. hollywood tells us we need to conserve yet they have multiple homes filled with excess clothing, furniture and amenities, multiple vehicles, private jets, yachts and whatever in-between. we're told we need to be mindful of waste but if you have ever been on any movie set you will notice egregious amounts of waste from food, energy, and one time use utensils/packaging/dinnerware... over the last three years you have all these politicians on the left stating that white people, wealthy people and men are the problem... so their solution is giving us candidates where the frontrunners are are old white men, who are multi-millionaires or billionaires. can some celebrity tweet something about this so they can tell me how to feel about this?

Now this is freakin funny. Did you guys catch the clip of Warren getting off a private jet, seeing a cameraman and hiding behind her staffer. We need the Green New Deal, the planet is doomed.

Concern for the planet is a good idea for other people. C'mon...you weren't expecting integrity or consistency from a politician, were you? Pffftt...

It sure was. Laughable that she thought she was actually fooling anyone. Insulting, if you think about it. She's trying to package herself as something other than the corporate-donor bought-and-paid-for soul-less hack that she is. I give her credit for identifying a market opportunity. But granola with MSG and 40% high-fructose corn syrup isn't really granola, is it?

The takeover of our education system by the Postmodern Neo-Marxists is one of the most successful sieges in the history of war. The siege of Leningrad in WWII looks like a Girl Scout jamboree by comparison.

"Back in my day..." higher learning was about meeting different people, learning about new cultures, expanding your thought horizon, learning new things, hearing other opinions and philosophies. Now it seems like everything must be muzzled, muffled or muted if it isn't the idea, voice or topic you want to hear/read. Now it appears tuition turns into indoctrination. Then enslave with debt, then when you have nothing socialism seems appealing because the very people who enslaved you will provide you for you.

Socialism and Postmodernism are intellectually indefensible. This became obvious in the '70s. Thus, having lost in the marketplace of ideas, they switched tactics and merely shut all the other ideas out. And that's where it's at now. No competing ideas are welcome, because they represent an existential threat to a set of ideas that academia has way too much invested in to risk having them invalidated.

Unfortunately I cannot disagree. While the free markets and capitalism are not perfect it is the best option available to us at this time. Nothing has transformed more lives from poverty to prosperity than capitalism and free markets.

Look at China and especially India in the last decade or two. We can state with no hyperbole or exaggeration that market-based economies are changing millions of lives on a daily basis. No economic system has saved and improved as many lives. It's not even close.

By comparison, in the "killing fields" of Cambodia under communist dictator Pol Pot roughly 25% of the country's population perished from overwork. In the Russian famine of 1932-33, an estimated 7.5 million people starved to death, despite living in one of the most fertile agricultural regions of the world. And let's be clear: we're not talking about lives made more miserable, or people made less free. These people perished. Gone forever. And it was a direct result of implementation of leftist ideas.

We have so few hate crimes, that most of the hate crimes reported turn out to be hoaxes. A large segment of our population is so wedded to a narrative that they'll manufacture hatred just to keep the narrative alive.
