The Dems need the Bernie votes in November. As has been pointed out - you can buy off Bernie with cash wadded in his mouth. But can you buy off Bernie voters? A substantial amount of freebies will be needed to keep them hyped up enough to vote for the ex-FLOTUS, but will that much of an obvious left-ward tilt scare Americans away from the Dems? You have to boil the frog slowly and carefully. So far we've only seen the results from the white-racist wing of the Dem party. Once the diverse-racist wing results come in, we may have a new picture. Or not. Stay tuned!

odd-one 10:09 - "How many Trump refugees are there now who were former government employees that walked or were frog marched out the White Door???" Since you asked - probably none. Did you have some sort of point to make or were you just feeling lonely? Don 10:15 - Live by the sword, and die by the sword. The economy could take a hit by election day and although it will probably have nothing to do with anything Trump's done, voters will sour on him and he'll lose. That is unfortunately how it is with all presidential elections. The sad fact of full employment is a record number of folk that now have plastic and the first thing they do is max the cards out. A new set of wheels usually completes the monthly budget. The party is fun while it lasts. I'd be a very wealthy gentleman if I knew just how far that rubber band of debt (personal, governmental and corporate) can stretch before it snaps.

Bloomberg's description of 'throwing them against the wall' was his version of the procedure. I had never heard of it happening back when that policing measure was in force. The black cops were glad to be able to get the gun toting punks off the streets. The black population of NYC were glad to have safer streets. It was mainly white lefties and a handful of blacks that never had to walk those streets that complained. Oddie 9:41 - "This talk about Bloomberg and racism doesn't sound much different than the talk about Trump's racial profiling and family separation immigration plans..." Because with Trump it is just 'talk' or actually left wing bullshit to be accurate. There is no racial profiling at the border. None. Kids have always been separated from their parents when the parents have committed crimes. Skin color has nothing to do with it. Dragging your kids along with you while committing crime is child abuse.
Bloomberg's 'stop and frisk' did just barely make the cut as a Constitutionally allowable procedure. It absolutely cut down on the amount of bloodshed in NYC. Now he's on the national stage and he's wishing he hadn't done it. He's apologizing for it. If you run for POTUS as a Dem, you have you stop at the BLM booth and pay the toll or at least give massive lip service. Black Lives Matter is the most oxymoronically named group I've encountered. They care deeply for a handful of African background folk - most of whom were begging for a quick dispach to their maker. The massive death toll of innocent bystanders in urban areas that are not white mean absolutely nothing to the BLM goons. Police incompetence in officer involved shootings needs to be addressed. But BLM operates in a place of racism and fantasy. Bloomberg is apologizing that he saved the lives of who knows how many African descent lives. The road to the Dem nomination for POTUS is strange indeed.
Say kids! Here's a guy on the left that understands how it works! https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2020/2/7/21123518/trump-2020-election-democratic-party-james-carville Money quote - “Eighteen percent of the population controls 52 Senate seats,” Carville said. “We’ve got to be a majoritarian party. The urban core is not gonna get it done. What we need is power! Do you understand? That’s what this is about.” Not Greta or green weenie stuff or BS about the environment or social justice or the earth coming to an end. POWER! When the Dems listened to Carville, they got elected. But Carville talks only about power. Not all the other BS the Dems are chattering about now. Because POWER has always been what the Dems have been about. And there is nothing more powerful than a govt. Ask the Chinese and the Russians. Oh - they're all dead - 10s of millions of them. Guess you can't ask them.
oddie 7:32 - "I don't think Obama did anything specific about it but if you loons want to play that game so be it..." Specific about what? "about IT". Clinton the rapist played that game. IT. Now we see the defender of the left - Mr odlaw playing the same game. As I mentioned - you are allowed your own facts, but reality 'Trumps' your bull shit. odlaw IS bull shit. odlaw claimed that ",,,and notice no Conservo will admit that it was Obama that made the the US the '''No. 1 producer of oil and natural gas in the world'''" And now odlaw runs away from his own words. I'd respect the left just a little if they could only back up just one sentence of their own words with facts or reason. But they can't. Or won't what's the difference?
George 6:49 - "The record will show that Obama did NOTHING to help or increase fossil fuel production." Actually - the record shows that Obama did what he could to deter production of petro. But George - what about the title of your 2/5/2020 post? We have our record and the left has their record. And ne'er the twain shall meet. 'Cept in real life and ours wins - cause water runs down hill and stupid hurts. 'nuff said. And odd-boy can't or won't even begin to defend his statement as to just how Obama 'made' the USA the leader in production of petro. Funny how Obama is held up by the left as a champion against global warming at the same time he is the champion of the highest output of petro by the left. Maybe the left has no awareness or intelligence. You decide. Obama warns that the seas are rising and then scores a 14 million dollar seaside abode. If you stick a dollar up a lefties ass, they'll sing you any song you want.
BT 3:19 - Thanks for the laugh of the day. Those evil Republicans! Going back in time to make the state boundaries so that more Rs would be in the Senate! We obviously need to re-draw the states' borders to reflect diversity and social justice! I wonder how long they had to spend with that gender quota hire to explain basic civics to her?
oddy 2:56 - Another example of leftys with their own facts. ",,,and notice no Conservo will admit that it was Obama that made the the US the '''No. 1 producer of oil and natural gas in the world'''" Because Obama did what he could to curtail the production of petro. That's why. odd-boy's quote on production of petro (no citation - maybe he got it from a bathroom he visited?) doesn't mention Obama at all. Here's a better view: https://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/obamas-drilling-denials/ Output on existing federal leases increased, but that was due strictly to new tech - nothing Obama did. Natural gas production went down. But odd-boy wants his own facts. "...it was Obama that made the the US the '''No. 1 producer of oil and natural gas in the world'''"" You notice odd-thing can't explain HOW Obama did that. But thanks for helping George make his point!
odd-out 7:45 - That's a sad try at diversion. I wasn't talking about them and you know it. Care to face the issues I brought up? No - I didn't think so. Poor sap - all oddy can do is throw rocks.
Just visited CNNs Iowa Caucus results page. In the first and in the final round Bernie beats out Pete by a wide margin, but Pete somehow ends up with more delegates. And this is the party screaming about the Electoral College! looks like the money Pete paid Shadow Inc. paid off pretty handsomely. Just wait until Super Tuesday and the Bloomberg money comes in. "Party Of The People" - what a laugh. Wasn't it always the Dems saying they wanted to "get the money out of politics"?
idiot-law 3:43 - "But guess what??? Unless we allow more immigrants into the country we are going to run out of people to hire..." Who's against immigration? Not Trump nor anyone here. We're against illegals. Maybe you could get some one to scream that in your ear for an hour or so. And then again - you probably still wouldn't get it. Flooding the country with illegal unskilled labor just as automation is kicking in big time is a recipe for disaster.
oddlaw 7:31 - Oh dear, wrong again. "I doubt the Roundtable will click on a WP link as it would be akin to snuggling with a werewolf during Wolf Moon..." It's you lefties that brag about not visiting sites due to fear. That link goes to a comedy routine by George Conway. There is nothing even claiming to be factual about it. But you are entitled to your own reality as the one with Trump as your POTUS is clearly more than your fragile system can handle.
outlaw 11:29 - Which data did you want? The DNC's? The Russians? Soro's? Shadow Inc? Bernie's? Booty-Judge's? Or the actual count, including the clueless idiot that claimed she didn't know Mayor Pete was gay because "it's never been brought up"?
Bobby X 4:12 - "Those of you who can actually read ought to read '1984' because you are living it." Read it a long time ago, dude. Maybe if you could wipe all the saliva off your bib and all over whatever you were standing next to you when you came out with that bit of hysteria, you might point out what part of '1984' bears a resemblance to what your President has done. I believe China is much, much closer to '1984' and it's the Dems that cozy up to that bunch. As always - not holding my breath.

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/michael-moore-rips-dnc-and-corporate-democrats-at-bernie-less-bernie-rally/ Gosh -where's our fearless lefties? Well - throwing rocks at Trump. If you have nothing to offer the volk - throw rocks. Pretty sure that's how America became a great country. Morons with no clue throwing rocks.

Paul, Steven, Odd-law? Still chewing on your own member? Well - whatever gives you comfort.

Bernie as top choice? Oh my - that's way too much democracy. We should have just the right amount. Mostly from the white boys at the top and then a commensurate amount from the chosen few at the bottom. Where are the lefties that post here on this ? Chewing on their own sodden stumps, I'd imagine. Where - oh - where are the fearless champions of the down trodden? Hiding under their little trundle beds. Paul? Steven? Odd-law? Cowards. Every one of them.

Frisch 11:24 - "A crises will come and Americans will die because Trump is President." Oh no - not THAT again!!! What WILL happen. All your claims of fear and doom have come and gone - yet onward you slog. re AGW - the only deniers are the climate alarmists denying the various and sundry prognostications of climate doom that never turned out to be correct.
I think I've found one of the reasons odd-law and his lefty friends don't like the current economy: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/income-inequality-in-america-how-98-trillion-of-household-wealth-is-distributed/ Money quote - "The gap between rich and poor in America is the worst it's been in more than a half century. It's a concern cited by every leading Democratic presidential candidate in the 2020 election, but many may not realize what it actually means." Wow - "...every 'leading' Dem..." So, it must be true. Further - "The poorest Americans, people in the bottom 20%, wouldn't get any." Really? None? So how is it they are better off than 90% of the rest of the world? Now - what sort of material goods did the 'poor' have 50 years ago vs today? Anyone thought about that? Obviously not CBS News.

Bill T 9:07 - Pretty much how I view the whole mess. Except I don't even run it in the background. A lot of sturm und drang from both sides with everyone taking the exact opposite tack from the last impeachment. There's no crime and the Dems don't have the votes in the Senate. Of course, the talking heads all think this is the most earth-shattering event and our 'democracy' is in peril....so sleepy, Zzzzzzzz

Bill T, scenes - re Trump "shutting down the voting in CA". Isn't that all the left ever has? It's always what 'will happen'. The climate, at the border, in Iran, at the White House - these spittle-blowing blowhards constantly warn of what 'will happen'. That it never does seems to be of no concern. Just offer some kind of brand new horror that 'will happen'. That's the problem with calling him 'literally Hitler'. Once you've put yourself in that box, all you have left is mindless ranting. Meanwhile, over at places like National Review - there's plenty of grounded criticism of Trump, but the left can't use any of that because they've branded NR to all be a bunch of NAZIs. If the economy sours and the Dems can figure out how to run a candidate like Tulsi Gabbard, I think they can win. There's still plenty of time for a lot to happen.

ex-Gov Brown was quite a promoter of CEQA. He would constantly belittle anyone who complained that CEQA's mandates were over-bearing and excessive. Then Brown wanted a choo-choo train and need I let you all know how Brown then felt about CEQA? Well, of course - the Brown Streak was 'different'. It was so full of good intentions and righteousness that surely it needn't sully itself with such bothersome details. https://spectator.org/has-bullet-train-been-hoisted-on-its-own-petard/ The CHSRA is probably the largest con ever foisted on the public in modern times. The fact that the CA taxpayers are willing to put up with a $100 billion plus scam is all you need to know about the once-golden state.
Since the 'homelessness' crises is ongoing and a constant bullet point item in every Dem candidate's web page, I thought it pertinent to link to a person who might help. https://californiaglobe.com/section-2/the-only-plan-to-end-homelessness/ Alas - he doesn't offer any of the sort of answers that the left wants to hear about. Most of the talk I see printed in newspapers and on-line is total blather. The 'cost' of housing has almost nothing to do with why there are so many homeless. But this is wrong-think and so we are going to have the homeless in large numbers for quite a while longer until the homeless shape up and become the people the left wants them to be. Meanwhile the left postures and virtue-signals in order to elevate their own stock in the eyes of the non-thinkers. The homeless be damned.
