    It's just, why did the stimulus bill pass unanimously in the senate when it's so transparently solidifying corporate power for another generation? (Oh, and expanding the surveillance state!)

    Where was Sanders? Bending the knee i guess.

    And what about Warren? I thought she was supposed to be some kind of avenging angel against banks and stuff after 2008? Guess not!

    Oh and AOC? She's been bought out and now won't support anyone who tries to primary incumbents like she did.

    Sure looks that way. Murica donezo.
    Sanders, the only guy who managed to get anything through for regular people in that shitshow of a bill?

    And you choose him to shit on here of all people?

    Can you be any more of an absolute Facebook tier drooling Muppet when it comes to politics?
    Oh ok so because Sanders got them to throw a bone to workers it's ok that the US got sold up the river.

    Where was the filibuster from Sanders and Warren to stop this bill that is literally plundering the US economy, entrenches mass surveillance, and cements corporate power even more?

    Complete and utter lack of leadership from anyone in the DNC. IT WAS A UNANIMOUS VOTE.

    And they're getting ready to do another one now. "Phase 4 Coronavirus Infrastructure Spending To Start At $2 Trillion" Can't wait to see how much embezzlement this one has!
    Just stop.

    Literally nobody said this.

    Just. Fucking. Stop.

    It would have been terrible optics for sanders to vote against the bill.

    In other news, Jared kushner apparently doesn't understand the importance of a federal stockpile of emergency pharmaceuticals. I thought capitalism rewarded the best and brightest?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Capitalism doesn't like stockpiles, let that liquidity flow!

    If he gets reelected after all this, I'm going to give up on politics and stop watching the news.

    What Malc said. We should all prepare, especially mentally and some more than others, for what is going to happen when that inevitably becomes fact as it absolutely will.

    I feel at this point, there is more of a liability being in the US than not, as a Californian.


    Mission Accomplished, I guess.

    Remember how everyone was aghast and amazed when Bush II got re-elected? It's gonna be like that.

    Trump got in on the white vote. As long as whites think he'll keep them believing that they're privileged over the browns, and that America is owed by the rest of the world, they'll keep voting for him, or someone like him. It'll keep happening.
