I'm all for paying higher taxes for a Medicare for all system.

I have no problem with paying higher income taxes and/or higher sales taxes in exchange for a system where I don't have to pay a monthly premium, then a co-pay, then a deductible, and then still have additional bills. The peace of mind that we would have as Americans regarding our health care costs and the savings that it would bring would alleviate a ton of stress on all of us. If we have to cut defense spending to pay for M4A, then so be it.

We have to get over our fear of taxes. Taxes allow us to pay for things that we all need at a huge discount.


One cost. One payment. One system.

There are those that will vote for Trump simply because of tax cuts.

They know that he's incompetent, an embarrassment, unhinged, and dangerous, but they want their tax breaks. So, they will vote for him even though they tell pollsters that they disapprove of the job that he's doing overall.

Don't be lulled into a false sense of security by poll numbers. If the Democrats win in 2020, it will be by razor thin margins.

Overtourism Calls For Creativity, Better Manners And Community Engagement

From Amsterdam to Venice and Barcelona, Peru and even Nepal, overtourism is a hot topic. Increasingly, local residents have been rebelling against visitors, and a subject that once was brushed aside is now getting the attention of leaders in tourism.

It's a big problem here in NYC. If you live in a neighborhood with tourist attractions, then your life will be hell.

--On Edit--
AirBnB is a big driver of this problem. In essence, they're providing de-regulated hotel service which does lower prices without any consumer protections.

Where do the "War Hawks" go now?

Now that Trump has fired Bolton, and no sane thinking Dem presidential candidate will pick him up or someone like him, who do the "War Hawks" turn to?

9/11 is now 18 years ago. Back then the "War Hawks" were in their glory. They could invade/attack any nation they wanted to and Americans would cheer for them.

Today, they're out in the cold.

I dare you to sit still while you listen to this.

The WORST type of Trump supporter IS NOT the White Nationalist type.

They are mostly suffering from some sort of mental illness due to isolation and poor education.

No, the WORST type of Trump supporter is the one that goes along with Trump's bullshit because they're getting a break on taxes. They know that he's unfit to be a human being, let alone president, but they're saving a few pennies so who cares if migrant children are dying and in cages.

These are people so devoid of humanity and live only for money.

Maybe We Should Be Concerned About Qanon?

Very interesting video. We need to shed light on these people:

It truly really does not matter who the Democrats nominate for president.

If Trump wins, it will be because too many Americans are comfortable with xenophobia, racism, sexism, and having a complete immoral, unethical, criminal buffoon as president. A Trump victory is an indictment on his voters.

It's not about the Democrats moving too far to the left or a candidate's age, sex, race, etc. Every single Democrat running is a better human being than Trump. Someone that your kid can look up to and be inspired by.

I don't want to hear any post-election analysis about the "likeability" of the Dem nominee or that they didn't do enough to reach out to Trump voters. Fuck that bullshit. The man is a fucking incompetent asshole, criminal, and fraud, and people that vote for him are assholes, pure and simple.
