Why Clothing Quality is Declining In Your Favorite Brands

After Gore was cheated in 2000, we did nothing.

After Bush cooked intelligence and lied about WMDs, we did nothing.

After torture was revealed, we did nothing.

After Gitmo was discovered, we did nothing.

After Wall Street pushed us into a financial collapse, we did nothing.

So, is it any wonder that Trump could think that he can break the law? And, if we do nothing about this, just imagine the next crime by the next Republican president.

The Senate should NOT be taken into consideration when it comes to impeachment.

The impeachment clause of the Constitution does not have language that states, "only impeach if you're 100% sure that the Senate will vote to convict".

The House's constitutional duty is to investigate possible crimes by the President and vote to impeach if they find good cause to do so. The end.

Worrying about the senate or the 2020 elections or the media or Trump's response, all of that is simply not relevant. If there's enough to warrant an impeachment then it's their duty to do so. If the evidence is compelling enough and the Republicans do not remove Trump from office, then that is on them. That's a political decision that they're making.

Now, I am not saying that the Democrats should definitely impeach. They need to do their own investigations, gather the evidence, the testimony, and come to a conclusion.

Giving up on impeachment because of Mitch McConnell is the kind of thing that makes Democrats like me lose all confidence in the Congressional Democratic leadership.

If your dog or cat could text you....

What would they say?

Bottom line, is there enough information in the report to launch a congressional investigation?

Or, even flat out impeachment hearings?

Social Democracy is not Socialism

Social Democracy:

Social democracy is a political, social and economic ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a liberal democratic polity and a capitalist economy. The protocols and norms used to accomplish this involve a commitment to representative and participatory democracy, measures for income redistribution and regulation of the economy in the general interest and welfare state provisions.[1][2][3] Social democracy thus aims to create the conditions for capitalism to lead to greater democratic, egalitarian and solidaristic outcomes.



Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership of the means of production and workers' self-management,[10] as well as the political theories and movements associated with them.[11] Social ownership can be public, collective or cooperative ownership, or citizen ownership of equity.[12] There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them,[13] with social ownership being the common element shared by its various forms.

Most Americans, be they Republican or Democrat, are Social Democrats. For example, if you support government's enforcement of a minimum wage, then you are a Social Democrat. Socialism means the eradication of Capitalism. No Democratic elected official or candidate for president (including AOC and Bernie Sanders) is advocating for Socialism. What they are advocating is for stronger Social Democratic principles, a more robust and better funded public sector. Don't let the idiotic framing by the media fool you.
