To use a more pungent metaphor

I'd rather have Sanders in the tent pissing out on Trump and the Fascists (great band name), than outside the tent pissing in.

If a few corporate friendly Democrats get a little Sanders pee on them, they can soothe their hurt feelings by rubbing piles of their lobbying money on it.

58. Better album title than band name (imho) Too long for a band name. They are almost always

one or two words (think of for example Pink Floyd vs Dark Side of the Moon -- DSotM would never have worked as a band name since a band name needs to be quick and catchy and capable of appearing on posters/advertising without requiring multiple lines of text).

I don't know why I took your fun post in a "serious" manner but your post made me start thinking about the hows and whys of band names. (I know there are exceptions to the rule but bands like The Flaming Lips still fit the model).

I think "Tent Pissers" or "The Tent Pissers" or "The Pissing Tents" would be great for a punk band.

Nor has he offered any support or endorsements. I love Obama and actually think his star shines brighter than Bernie.

Yet... silence.

Is it possible we don't know the full picture or strategy and we're critiquing blindly? Why would Obama call.a French candidate, and not any of ours?

TBH, I think Bernie's just an honest guy. He doesn't know Ossoff and said so. There's nothing more nefarious than that and ascribing motives is divisive.

Obama didn't say anything that could hurt Ossoff. If Obama and Sanders were asked not to campaign then I would understand. But Sanders screwed up by questioning his progressive credentials IMHO. I don't think he did it maliciously like some here do, but I think it was unhelpful and he deserved to be criticized for it.

54. Planned Parenthood Voters of Nebraska had this to say

PPVN, the political arm of the family-planning organization, pushed back on the claim that it gave Heath Mello a 100 percent rating. The group’s scorecard from 2011 shows Mello “voting against Planned Parenthood’s position on three votes ― all abortion related.”

“Planned Parenthood Voters of Nebraska has never endorsed Heath Mello for public office nor has Planned Parenthood Voters of Nebraska given Heath Mello a 100% rating, as some media outlets have erroneously reported,” the group said in a statement.

“Heath Mello has introduced and supported anti-choice legislation during his time at the Nebraska Unicameral, and Planned Parenthood Voters of Nebraska strongly opposed him when he took such actions,” the statement continues. “Over the course of Heath Mello’s campaign for Omaha Mayor he has said loud and clear he supports Planned Parenthood and wants to protect the work we do. Although he has not started that conversation with us, our door is always open and we welcome the opportunity to start a productive dialogue on how Heath Mello can help us promote and protect access to women’s health care in Nebraska.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) faced criticism on Thursday from the liberal-leaning blog Daily Kos and the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League for their scheduled event embracing Heath Mello, a pro-life Democrat running for mayor in Omaha, Nebraska.



https://rewire.news/article/2017/04/20/why-is-dnc-embracing-aggressively-anti-choice-democrat/



Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who campaigned on a progressive platform during his 2016 quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, will speak at a rally Thursday that will include anti-choice Democrat Heath Mello.

Sanders and Mello, along with Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), are scheduled speakers at the “Come Together, Fight Back, Vote Democrats” Rally in Omaha, Nebraska, where Mello is running for mayor. The event is a part of a party-sponsored national tour.

Sanders voiced his support for Mello in a statement published Wednesday by the Wall Street Journal. “If this fellow wins in Nebraska, that would be a shot across the board, that in a state like Nebraska a progressive Democrat can win, that will give hope to folks in other conservative states that perhaps they can win as well,” he said.



http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a9203970/democrats-abortion-economic-justice/



On Wednesday's Morning Joe, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders went on to talk about working with Donald Trump and the future of the Democratic Party. Host Joe Scarborough brought up the question of abortion and other "social issues" that he said kept white working-class voters voting Republican in states like West Virginia, where they would gain more economic benefits if Democrats were in charge. He suggested that if Democrats want to win white working-class voters in states like Kentucky, they might need to run candidates who reflect the social values of those same white working-class voters — that is, opposing a woman's legal right to decide for herself whether to carry a pregnancy to term. Could Democrats, Scarborough asked Sanders, "be open to candidates that may not be rigidly pro-choice, may not be rigidly pro-gun control?" Sanders said yes.

A Senator with a stated track-record of talking down any candidate that doesn't fit his rigid list of qualities. That is also not an outrageous-sounding claim, but is well-sourced with much data. If he's going to hold most of the Democratic Party to these rigid principles, than the areas that he is willing to compromise in will be scrutinized sharply.

36. You could also listen to the past decades of radio interviews he has done on the Thom

Hartmann show and actually learn something about the man, how his heart is in the right place, and his mastery of policy is impressive. The guy is a real human being and knows exactly why trickle down economics doesn't, and will never, work. He has been fighting this country's slide into proto-feudalism and fascism along with the best people in the Democratic party, and as a stalwart defender of what is best about this country and what makes it good and what makes it work for everyday people, he (along with excellent members of Congress and executive branch folks from the Democratic Party) has my gratitude.

Tell me which members of Congress, which Democrats, you think are just as good as Sanders on the issues. I have my own list that fits that bill, but it isn't as long as I would like it to be. Do you have such a list?

My former Rep. Barbara Lee, my present Rep. Jackie Speier, Rep. Mark Takano, Rep. Ted Lieu, and Rep. Eric Swalwell. In fact, most of my CA reps have put in the actual work of crafting legislation to ameliorate income inequality--and amazingly, without shoving women's issues under the carpet to do so.

I am perfectly familiar with Bernard Sanders.

Your OP asserted by implication that Bernard would have some kind of benefit to the Democratic party, facts not yet in evidence. However, if, as a grown man, you have not moved on from thinking passive-aggressive evasiveness is somehow cute, we're pretty much done here. I have a meeting to attend on housing justice.

This guy is an anti choicer, and my criticism is of the support of a man whose policy position is not progressive, not liberal, not Democratic, and which assails the human rights of women. I do not u derstand what you base this assumption on, literally no other he is suggesting that blind support of any Dem is required or expected. From the posts I have been reading that level of jingoism is reserved for Bernie, Tulsi Gabbard and Susan Sarandon for some reason.

Why is he supporting right wing types and not Dems who are actually progressive like Ossoff? A mayor of Omaha can do more damage to women in his city with this guy's beliefs, but Bernie supports him.

The imaginative thinking needed here to support this supposed victimhood is strange.

The attacks on Washington Post, and anyone questioning this odd behavior is stranger still. What is going on here?

11. Yeah, because making women's rights a priority is just so "corporate"

Last edited Thu Apr 20, 2017, 08:07 PM - Edit history (1)

So what if women are already poorer than men? So what if curtailing or eliminating reproductive rights greatly increases the number of women in poverty, and with them the children who make up the future generations of America? To be non-corporate, I must realize that the truly important issue is the bottom line of the demographic that already earns more and that any concerns about women's insignificant lives just makes us corporate stooges.

It would nice to see some honesty about what people really care about. I don't for a second buy your corporate spiel. To insist corporatism is defined entirely around reverence for one politician is absurd, and I doubt anyone can actually believe that. The ease with which women's rights are abandoned makes all too clear what is really happening. The effort to impose a great man, top-down hierarchy is perfectly in keeping with a political ethos than casts the lives of the majority of Americas as a distraction. The appeal for sympathy toward white male Trump voters over the concerns of the Democratic base makes more sense all the time.

And when you made assumptions about my positions, and just made them up, was that wrong as well, or are there different rules for you that do not apply to anyone else?

55. That was not word salad, it was simple English.

 

Generally one's English skills are not subject to sundowning. It does help to know the definitions of the words one is using when projecting. Makes it easier to understand when you are caught doing it.

Since you are having trouble: Basically you did what you accused her of doing, both with the strawman thing, and the making assumptions thing.

Hypocrisy is when one has double standards for others than one does for himself. That seems to be what's going on here. It's basically poor argument, when one cannot refute a point. Falls under the ad hominem grouping. I can find you a link so you can understand debate concepts better, if you'd like. These are mistakes Novices make when they don't understand the rules of debate yet. They think they're being clever, when all they are doings losing the round. There are lots of resources around these days to learn the rules of rhetoric, even when you don't have a coach around these help.

Might be good to peruse the basics, helps construct stronger arguments.

Also, look up "word salad" it does not mean what you think it does. If vocal is a problem, leave the technical terminology to those with the background to use it, or look it up before making the attempt.

52. Hey, guys! Over here! When you are finished with the fights about Sanders, you might want to

take note of the fact that THE FUCKING WORLD IS BLOWING UP!

In case you haven't noticed, this is not the time to be parsing whether a person is perfectly progressive enough or whether they like Sanders enough. This is the time for everyone who is politically to the left of bat shit crazy to be sticking together.

Because, ya know, THE FUCKING WORLD IS BLOWING UP!

I think these threads are moronic and destructive because, see, THE FUCKING WORLD IS BLOWING UP!, so I went so far as to trash keywords "Bernie" and "Sanders" and I STILL can't get away from this bullshit.

61. I'd prefer Democrats to aim better and avoid spattering

other Democrats with their urine, frankly. As an old man, myself, I recognize that aiming gets more difficult with age, but a little extra attention does help keep things in their proper place.

I'd rather that Democrats would say nothing about other Democrats, rather than damning them with faint praise and raising questions about them. That's really easy to do.
