> Eventually, they help everybody

Well yeah, that's the problem. What if I don't want to "help everybody"? What if I can only get my rocks off if I have literally all the money, everyone else is starving in the street, and I can lord it over them that I get to eat and go to the doctor and pay my rent, and they don't? Isn't that the whole point of having money? /s

In other news, I am now even more in favor of voting for Warren. Even if I am not much of a fan of her wealth tax proposal (though I can't imagine it going anywhere anyway. I do think we need to tax the rich more effectively, I just feel like a straight-up yearly wealth tax would be potentially a bit destabilizing, given the rich generally have most of their assets in less-liquid forms, especially at that scale.)

She really does seem to understand everything wrong with our currently government and economic system and how she would try to fix it, and she terrifies the Wall St. people.

But I don't think Jesus (and other Dem voters) don't love me enough to let her be president.

The red half of this country prefers to support racism than to support themselves.

I quipped last night that Tom Steyer once sold a vacuum to me, so if Liz's ideas don't exist in a vacuum, maybe Steyer's role in all of this is to go big on Green vacuums that suck more and yet less. Yang can just hand out Green, Clean Green even.

Liz is the one, I can't have my Kamala, so Liz is the one. She is plan heavy and she has only just begun. I'm sure that she plans on having more plans and then to adjust on the fly as those plans create greenness and greenery and dispose of the old brown deal. Its like Spring is springing eternal and hope came back with it.

I gotta admit I started off Harris, but Warren's plan for EVERYTHING has me very excite!

Ironically, with the massive batteries required for range, an SUV actually makes sense. But with all the weight on the bottom, electric SUVs are actually stable, so I don't know how popular that'll be.

Just found out that the tires on a Tesla don't last as long due to the weight. And the factory OEM tire versions can't be patched (and the impacts of a small leak is magnified due to the weight).

Curious as to how the tire replacement requirements fold into the "environmentally friendly" calculus.

Pessimism killed the cat. Is that how that goes?The optimistic POV is that Obama paved the way or we wouldn't even have this much hope. Barack performed miracles if you take into consideration all the circumstances. Did he perform 'all' the miracles, of course not.

There is no more, unless your Biden, hope for bipartisanship, we know we have to go it alone and so we will. Barack smoked them out and he should get at least some credit for that as opposed to yeah buts IMO.
