Thanks to the polarization of Donald Trump in alienating anyone in the middle on both sides of the party, we are left with scary far left battling with the far right for attention....

I thought it was already proven the war on the "rich" failed miserably...

Oh MY GOD. An 0.1% tax on trades that will mostly affect HFT types. Oh, the HORROR!

Says someone that doesn't want to work and wants an big crash and score a big "win" like winning the lottery.

Says the cancer patient who could become unable to work and end up dependent on social insurance at basically any time... the only difference between us is our disabilities. Yours is physical, mine is Asperger's or similar, which makes it unlikely for me to be able to hold down non-academic full-time work long-term.

We're both creating our own "welfare" programs to deal with the future. You should be rejoicing that taxes on HFT people are going up -- it will put more funds into Medicare and Medicaid if you'll need it.

Why is that crazy?

I had to google aspergers. I didn’t quite know what that was. Maybe I suffer from it too. But I don’t think so. I make friends quite easily and I like to talk to people. But I like it mock self-assured ignorance and turn the tables on people so that makes me some enemies.
Actually, I think I’m well suited to live in a capitalist world. I can deal with the high strung.

AOC, didn't she just get caught in an SUV motorcade three blocks to the Subway station then ride it to look like a woman of the people. Having spent post grad time at BU, the place that put the Dr. in Dr. Martin Luther King and where Edison made many breakthroughs, I used to proudly wear my BU t-shirts out and about until this AOC mess came along.

At least Ihlan Omar went to North Dakota State University and not South Dakota State University, which is regularly confused with SDSU bearing the same acronym. Otherwise I'd have to throw away all my college gear.

Nice to see Flyer likes the capitalist world, hopefully he will still be living in one 20 years from now.

You must have watched Fox News’ rant because I did just for entertainment.

People use customary transportation. It doesn’t mean they can’t support better transportation policies. Fallacy of composition.

Shows how trumpistas are not logical or science minded. It’s all about their own feelings and sense of aggrievement

I don't need to, once my friends saw her wearing the same BU shirt that I often wear all her actions are sent to/and blamed on me. It's a guy thing, locker room antics/fraternity behavior never fades despite age. For instance one of my friends is a lifelong and rabid Patriots fan, every time they cheat or get arrested, we send that information to him and he is guilty by association and usually defends them. It's like an automatic search engine for things you don't want.

What "SUV motorcade?"

AOC took a taxi that happened to be a minivan with two aides instead of walking to the subway after a parade. Oh, the horror!

People get their titties in a twist about the oddest things.

EDIT: It wasn't even a taxi. Her aunt picked her up in her personal minivan.

I am very disappointed in our Mayor not to mention our Governor. Our Governor is a Democrat for which I am not surprised by the overspending and over taxation. But, our Mayor is a Republican who acts like a Democrat. Since our Mayor took office, all I have seen is my property tax go up along with other taxes. At least Carl David DeMaio speaks out against taxes.
