“I’d really like [Hillary] to see it,” he said, in a half-hour sit-down for POLITICO’s “Off Message” podcast, where he described his discomfort with Clinton’s coziness with Wall Street and her opposition to re-imposing Glass-Steagall banking regulations that were repealed on her husband’s watch.Idiot. Hillary ALREADY KNOWS everything about Wall Street. That's EXACTLY WHY she's cozy with Wall Street. She figured out that Goldman owns everything, and then figured out how to ride along with Goldman and pick up some of the power. That's her consistent operating mode. Riding shotgun with the Alpha. Most of us operate that way sometimes, but most of us aren't running for President. You should be asking what Hillary would do if she found herself in the driver's seat without an Alpha to do the actual leading.
Would he vote for her? He sighs. He swishes the water around his glass at a Georgetown hotel lounge. He sighs again. “Obviously if it’s Donald Trump I have to vote for her. I’ll probably — it bums me out, but I'll probably have to hold my nose and vote for her. I’m not a fan of a lot of things she’s done. But she’s not a wackadoodle. I mean, she doesn’t believe that, you know, mankind was created 5,000 years ago. ... Um yeah, there’s no way. If it’s Ted Cruz or Donald Trump, I have to vote for her.”Thrush, you are a blind vicious vile filthy putrid BIGOT. Everything you know is wrong. PREJUDICE means forming an opinion about a subject based on lies. Trump is not a Young Earth Creationist, and neither is Cruz. Even if they were, it has ABSOLUTELY NO CONNECTION to Wall Street. Totally separate subjects. No possible way for one set of beliefs to affect the other set. If you really care about clamping down on Wall Street, Trump is the only candidate of those three** who may possibly do it, the only one who states the problem accurately. But you clearly do not care about clamping down on Wall Street. It doesn't matter that Trump AGREES WITH YOU on Wall Street and Hillary DISAGREES. The only thing that matters in your nasty grotesque tiny calvarium is KILL CHRISTIANS KILL CHRISTIANS KILL CHRISTIANS. = = = = = **Footnote: Sanders also states the problem accurately, and discusses it far more OFTEN than Trump, but Thrush wasn't talking about Sanders here. Footnote 2: At the risk of sounding plaintive, the really weird thing about these Dawkins-style antitheist bigots is their total ignorance of EVERYTHING. Ordinary bigots misunderstand the other side. Dawkinsians don't even know what their own side believes, don't realize that their own side has ALL THE POWER ALREADY, and don't know the rules made by their ALREADY OMNIPOTENT side. Thrush misunderstands Christians, which is normal bigotry. He also fails to understand Hillary, which is WEIRD. The Dawkinsians are constantly complaining that education is a failure because every classroom teaches creationism. EXACTLY WRONG. Wrong for 90 fucking years. American teachers and textbooks have been teaching not just evolution, but the stupidest and wrongest version of evolution, EXCLUSIVELY FOR 90 YEARS. Any teacher who dares to mention that some biologists don't agree with the official stupid version will get in deep trouble. Any teacher who mentions that some people find the whole theory unsatisfying would be dead before he started the sentence. HOW IN THE FUCK CAN YOU HAVE MORE THAN 100% EVOLUTION???????????????????????? More than 100% and less than 0% are explicitly anti-mathematical ideas, but they are the FOUNDATION of Dawkinsism.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
