John Hickenlooper Bernie is too extreme on health care – Trump admin is malpractice – trade wars are for losers

Tim Ryan Refuses to put hand on his heart during National Anthem (Kaepernick wing) “Working class has not had a raise in 30 years – we need a chief manufacturing officer to facilitate electric cars and solar panels – we need to make things again and chief manufacturing officer will solve problem

  1. When I think of some of the worst policy proposals coming from the democrats, student loan forgiveness has to be in the top 5. Why? Because total forgiveness of the balances will never, ever happen. The best they’ll be able to do is have you sign your life away to wipe the balances free and clear which will require the borrower to serve the government for a certain amount of time. That’s called indentured servitude. While it’s not technically slavery, it’s a hair’s breadth away. And guess which demographic is especially burdened by student loans? African Americans. So congratulations democrats, there’s a very real possibility you’ll create thousands upon thousands of indentured servants in the African American community. Irony?

    But wait, there’s more: Imagine if sanity rules the day and this debt is never forgiven? There is a generation of students who have been hearing for many years now that there’s a chance this debt will never matter to them because it’ll be wiped away. If you’re one of these students, what do you do when you hear the sweet siren call of forgiveness? You load up on the debt and binge like crazy because it’s free money! After all, nearly all the democrats are shouting debt forgiveness.

    And then one day these poor dupes will make up one morning, stare into the abyss that is their student loan balances with the knowledge help is not on the way after American voters reject this asinine policy, and…then what?

    I guess escape to the village of Uchakkada?
