Democrats aren’t embracing socialism. They’re trying to improve healthcare and stop climate change 19.2.2019 Los Angeles Times - Living Green

To the editor: Unlike columnist Jonah Goldberg, I am not afraid of the Democrats’ “wild-eyed fantasy of an agenda that would cost trillions, destroy whole industries and serve as a Trojan horse for socialism.”

Not doing enough to combat climate change terrifies me. I much prefer destroying “entire...

Speaker Pelosi To Trump: 'I Wish You Would Declare Gun Violence A National Emergency' 15.2.2019 Crooks Liars
After the news broke that Donald Trump intends to declare a national emergency at the same time he signs the compromise bill wending its way to his desk, Nancy Pelosi held a press conference where she plainly illlustrated the costs of his weak, spineless move. After all, it's not every day that a President throws himself on the floor, kicks and screams, crawls into Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs' arms for comfort before demanding his ice cream, and Pelosi took advantage of his moment of weakness in magnificent fashion. After listing the enumerated powers of Congress, Pelosi noted with some irony that Trump is doing an end run around those powers. "I know some Republicans have some unease about that, no matter what they say," she told reporters with a sly grin. "If the President can declare an emergency on something he has created, an illusion that he wants to convey, just think what a President with different values can present to the American people," she said, grinning more broadly. "You want to talk about ...

Hey Joe Manchin, This Is Not Helpful 14.2.2019 Crooks Liars
You'd expect West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin to scoff at the Green New Deal, given his ownership by what's left of the coal industry. Still, this was gratuitous, unnecessary, dismissive and flies in the face of Manchin's famous call for "comity." When asked by a reporter about his thoughts on the Green New Deal, Manchin waved off the reporter with a "Honey" before scoffing at it, calling it a "dream." It was a dream when we sent a man to the moon. It was a dream when we passed Medicare so seniors wouldn't die penniless. It was a dream when we passed Social Security to make sure there was at least a minimum income for retirees. It was even a dream when the Affordable Care Act was passed, ending discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions. Why is it that endless war is never just a dream? Why is it that there's endless dollars for endless war? Here's why Senator Manchin is wrong: Climate change is destroying his state too. Devastating floods roll through West Virginia at an alarming rate. ...
