There are easier classes for making ashtrays or pot-holders.

Don't stress yourself.






Don't forget basket weaving as a 2nd hobby 😎

Ooooh!

Someone is gonna lose their wimmin card!


I think someone already took it away from me in another thread the other day, not that I was terribly upset about that.

Crochet is easier though. It's basically the art of tangling things up purty.

The problems with our country are not rocket science. The lobbyists force the politicians to pass laws creating cartels and monopolies in exchange for campaign financing. Wealth inequality is at all time highs!

Wealth inequality is much worse than most people imagine:



The Republican answer to all our problems is the same old same old. Gut consumer protection laws and pray to God trickle down economics works THIS time. Republicans want to cut taxes for the top 1% while getting rid of social security so old people live in squalor. Republicans have no compassion for people who are not as fortunate as they are. Just because you start on third base and hit a single doesn't make you Babe Ruth!

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Benito Mussolini

Corporations ARE the government. The workers making the median worker's wage are nothing but a bunch of slaves!



"It's called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it."



Response to the catchy "Democratic PLatform 2020" post no doubt.

If you apply Socratic logic to the proffered positions of this and the "Dems Commies" post from earlier... the "Dems 2020 communism" premise is historically WAY WAY more accurate than this one.

That said... I will partially have to agree with this OP, on it's technical merits.

The U.S. is NOT a "Capitalist" system at the macro level. The elected officials of both parties have been knee deep in fascism for decades now in America.

If you want to see what "Capitalism" is, you will have to look at one of the small/medium sized businesses in America that were built with the money sweat, tears and even a little blood by millions of Americans that had an idea and some of their own money, and built it into a successful enterprise DESPITE government and their Corporatecrat buddies running a rigged fascist "banking warfare economic model" system.

The only reason we have survived this long as a nation, is largely because of small/medium sized businesses.

The geniuses on the left can raise the marginal tax rate to 80%... but their pals, and the "Republicans" pals, the super wealthy lever pullers, will NOT be paying those tax rates. They never have, and they never will.

America has a massive spending problem... and it doesn't matter whether it's Republicans or full blown leftist "bolsheviks" in office... they will eventually run out of OTHER peoples money. Might take a little longer for Republicans to do it... but they will run out of other peoples money as well.

Scratch Americans veneer of understanding on economics, applied math and how that all jibes with trade and monetary policy, and a feather weight scratch will scratch al the way through their understanding to the cheap base wood.

Americans just listen and parrot what they hear on the news from supposed "experts". They don't know enough to see past the BS to understand that these talking heads "expertise" is in spouting the approved narrative world view on everything, so Americans don't have to worry about "thinking".

The media will do all their thinking for them.

The democrat party is rapidly changing and you can't say the same about the Republicans even with Trump.

The tea party movement cant even compare to the powerhouse that is the progressive movement.
Media shows TV new msm movie video games all try to push the same progressive gibberish. Universitys to public schools.

I think you need to modify this saying, to get to the true "zeitgeist" of this time.

I would go with "Leftist Democrats are communists!" Maybe throw in a little "Inside every Progressive is a Totalitarian screaming to get out!"

The Republican 2020 Party Platform. . . . Fascism

Not sure I got that memo but there could be some craziness going on. Think about this....

4 parties...

Democrats - conservative liberals
Republicans - conservatives
Independents - centrists
New Democrats - far left and liberals

This is what I see. The current Trump supporter from the choices above are Democrats, Republicans and Independents. He can draw from all there. Before 2020 he will gain more of the minority vote and this will carry him in 2020. Swing voters and Democrats.

Democrats are fractured. Bernie did this in 2016 and it will carry into 2020. There are some pissed off people and those who are really pissed voted for Trump out of hate of Hillary. Now if they have a few good years they will stay on.

RINO's- These are democrats playing republican or vice versa. If anything they would split between all but the new democrats. Still plenty voting for Trump but pissed he is not letting them lobby. McCain and Romney are the last of a breed.

New Democrats - This is the new Democratic Socialist party. 2020 is not the time but by 2028 if they do split you could see a big # and back to a 2 party system. New Democrats and everyone else.

I think it's worst than that for republicans. During the mid term Trump already tried to run of a fascist based platform. Trump claimed more than once he was a Nationalist (naz i where national socialist) He ran a anti illegal immigrant campaign or was it a anti immigrant campaign similar to national socialist. Fear the caravans because there coming and are different than you there full of terrorists and criminals when they were in fact mostly women and children, Trump also ran on his accomplishments, like his biggest tax cuts in history that was the 8th largest in history mostly going to the top 10% as usual for republicans. Last but not least he ran on his wall, the wall would be the great monument to trump.

The moral is, he lost biggly it will be interesting if he tries the exact same strategy in 2020. Trump had a republican controlled House, Senate Executive and Supreme Court and didn't accomplish anything other than same ole establishment republican agenda plus exploded the deficit, I do wonder what he's gonna run on in 2020

Democrats like leftists in Europe want endless waves of migration and open border.
The other side wants security.

What is there about Republicans that make them Fascists ?
There are some Dems that are registered as Democratic Socialists.
That describes Fascism to a T (a capital T)

Denying ignorance
Why ?
I had to due to my start of my game time pretty close.
