    If in the coming weeks, Biden seems to have woken up, stop saying stupid shit all the time, stop angrily yelling at citizens at speaking events, then maybe I'd throw my support behind him. 

    He's done

    Italy has about 60 million population, so at a worst case 15% rate that means "only" 9 million people will die within weeks.

    For entire Europe with about 750 million people, that would be about 110 million deaths.

    The virus only has a 2% mortality rate

    Most people just become asymptomatic carriers or have mild symptoms

    It could potentially a huge liability in the general election if voters learn that Medicare for All means the elimination of their health insurance that they would prefer to keep.  

    Maybe you should wait until after coronavirus spreads and bankrupts millions of people with ICU stays to poll them on how much they "love" their private health insurance

    Oh wait - they're not going to go to the hospital to get checked out because they can't afford it, and the virus will spread even faster

    This is the world downzy wants

    67 percent of those who support Medicare of All think they'll be able to keep their current private health insurance.

    That poll was done 14 months ago

    If a President Sanders were to somehow implement Medicare for All, private medical insurance is done.  

    Thank God

    Except I find that many Sanders supporters aren't actually interested in having a discussion.  They only want to disparage and antagonize supporters of other candidates who pose a threat to Sanders.

    No candidate is a threat to Sanders - that's why liberals like yourself are desperately grasping at....anything...to try and take him down

    Take the L


  6. downzy thinks doubling down on Identity Politics is going to win elections for the Democrats

    fucking lol

    The only consolation of Bernie getting robbed at a brokered convention would be that the rotting corpse of the Democratic Party would die, paving the way for an actual leftist party in the United States. I'm fine with that.

    Yeah, this has been something that's bothered me about Sanders for awhile: his unwillingness to call out the machismo nonsense that exists within some of his supporters.  

    Even if Russian bots are behind some of it, Sanders should have used the opportunity to condemn the trolling that is part of his support.  I do think that if Sanders had run against a man in 2016 instead of Clinton that aspect found within some of his supporters wouldn't exist.  

    There's no such thing as a "Bernie Bro" and Sanders polls better than all the candidates with black women and minorities as a whole

    It's a Bloomberg smear - I know you have a boner for capitalism, but really, Bernie's going to win and there's nothing you can do about it

    So Bloomberg is considering picking Crooked Hillary as his running mate, what do you guys think about this?

    I think it was obvious she would come back but it will re-energize Trump's voters more than anything. I also think that if Bloomberg wins, he will step down to let her be POTUS.

    Bloomberg/Hillary is the opposite of a winning ticket

    This goes back to "Liberals would rather have a second Trump term than have Bernie win the presidency"

    Bloomberg might as well be saying "Vote Trump" if he added Hillary to his ticket


  9. That's a good research project for me - at what age did Dan McCafferty start singing "Love Hurts" at a lower tuning

    EDIT: By 1979 Dan was already singing it at lower tuning - he was only 33 then

    Axl was 33 in 1995...he started having a lot of trouble singing around then

    Imagine how Chinese Democracy and the 2001-2002 shows would have sounded if Axl had tuned everything down. Maybe he would have used rasp?
