  1. The fact that Jeff Bezos collects tens of billions of dollars for himself, yet has Amazon warehouses built on taxpayer money/tax breaks and forces his employees to live on food stamps is outright evil.

     

  2. No shock to see De Blasio beat Malliotakis tonight.

    (I voted for BDB, too. :D)

  3. When the Chargers have to tarp part of a 27,000-seat soccer stadium, it's clear LA wants nothing to do w/ 'em!

  4. >tfw America actually needed to have a televised health care debate to determine whether 20+ million people should die or not. f**king hell…

  5. Bliss would be a fine addition to the Powerpuff Girl cast had the story and her not be clogged by AA stereotypes and be treated like a token.

  6. The Indians's 22-game winning streak (the longest in AL history) snaps tonight. What an incredible run. Three weeks without a loss, including an 11-0 road trip and two doubleheader sweeps. This streak was marked by dominant pitching and great hitting. Savor it, everyone; we're never gonna see this again.

      Yeah... now we'll watch them go one & done in the playoffs....

  7. "SJW" = lame political ad hominem to attack anything remotely related to social justice nowadays. *eyeroll*

  8. Protip: Use a source from Breitbart/Klan News to support your argument, your opinion's automatically invalid.

  9. The Unite the Right rally is a Neo-Nazi, KKK, white-supremacist rally to suppress everyone other than the racist, Christian-based cult-right. Heather Hayer and Harris are victims of terrorist attacks by this cult. These terrorists are at the same level as al-Qaida and ISIS. Anyone who claims this to be hyperbole is delusional.

      That's what makes America great. We've become a country that focuses too much on attacking "the other" on both sides.

      There's absolutely a difference between the alt-right rallies and counter-protests. The Unite the Right and other white supremacist rallies are designed INTENTIONALLY to oppress minorities, people of color, the LGBT, religious minorities, and many others. The counter-protestors were victims of terrorist attacks; they were completely in the right.

      [ on that Trump is right. ]

      Trump is objectively wrong, and you, Via, are objectively wrong by sucking up to this racist. The "both sides" schlock is a major false equivalence that whitewashes the Charlottesville terror attacks and supports the neo-Nazis' causes. The Unite the Right rally was menacing, threatening, and called for the death of racial, sexual, and religious minorities.

  10. Obamacare lives another day. Repeal fails, 49-51. Now time to move forward to single-payer, Medicare-for-All system.

      i would do it if it were in the position to basically do what Israel did

  11. http://theweek.com/articles/712747/somebody-primary-andrew-cuomo <--- Hopefully, someone from the (progressive) left will primary Cuomo.
  12. So far, I feel like the only one who feels the transit fares should be lowered AND restructured across the board and that the fare-beating law should be greatly reduced, completely revamped so it doesn't penalize the working class and poor, or abolished.

      ...won't get caught, and then it repeats itself. Old habits die hard. If you genuinely don't have enough, that's understandable.

       

      BTW, even people who are poor try to do this as well on the bus (just pay a few cents or even a dollar short of the fare, and then tell the B/O). Eventually, some B/O's catch on and warn the person. Sometimes they won't even let them on.

      People need to get their priorities in check. The problem is that people's priorities are with things they can hardly afford. And when it involves things they can afford(bus/train fare, food, ect), they wanna act broke.

      lol... There's a white guy that does this. Would try to get the express bus without paying. Even asked me for a dip. Looked at him like he was crazy. I now see him taking the local bus. Likely trying the same crap. The B/O's on the express don't allow it, so he has no choice but to try the local. Surely he has the money but why pay if you can get on for free? That's the way folks do things these days... Let someone else pay for your expenses.

  13. The more delays in the subway and more lip service, the more Cuomo exposes himself as a neoliberal, corporatist tool.

  14. Fan banned from Fenway for life for hurling a racial slur at another fan yesterday. Good!

      Heard about that on the radio this morning... These racists have gotten bold/overt since the Trump regime....

       

      I used to abhor the red sux (Yankee rivalry)... Now I'm indifferent (the rivalry is more or less dead)... But what I will say is, that's a good look for the organization....

      ...although I do believe those recent incident(s) b/w the red sox & the orioles triggered that banning somewhat, but w/e....

  15. When you barely campaign in one battleground state and not campaign AT ALL in another following the primary, you deserve to lose the election. This was one of the Clinton campaign's biggest mistakes during the election battle against Trump.

  16. And today, Don T. Care is withdrawn. Good!

  17. Health care should be single-payer and a right to ALL people. As flawed as the ACA is, it's insane to remove it with the GOP's version. The GOP's replacement of the ACA is nothing more than a massive tax cut for the rich and will turn health care into an even bigger privilege.

      yes and trump is walking back on his "insurance for all"

  19. The fact that the Trump administration tried to pressure the FBI into denying the Trump-Russia connection means one thing: Trump colluded with Russia, and there's a cover up going on.

      You can't make these things up.

  20. "Regressive left" is the latest far-right-suckup buzzword now that "SJW" has all but fallen out of favor. Doesn't make their political opinion any less worthless, though.

  21. A judge in Washington (A Republican and W appointee) temporarily blocked Trump's racist refugee ban nationwide and won't stay the decision. Good!

  22. The Trump Administration's ban refugee ban is isolationist, racist, and completely disgraceful. This clear ban on Muslims is illegal, unethical, and immoral. He's repeating the same mistake as FDR when they turned away Jewish refugees, many of whom were murdered in the Holocaust. As a Jew, the fact he enacted this ban on Holocaust Remembrance Day makes me doubly-sick to my stomach.

      And they're not really distractions, either.

      Agreed on all of the above. I honestly don't think he'll serve his full term. The GOP doesn't like him, but getting behind him was the only way to get what they wanted. Once they get that, deuces to Trump, and they bring Pence in.

      Transit improvements are the least of our worries at the moment.

  24. Bagwell, Raines, and Pudge all elected to the Hall of Fame yesterday. Very, very deserving. Congrats to all three. ^^

      Now that's a good election.

  25. Each person Trump nominates for his cabinet shows how objectively terrible he'll be as a president. And each choice proves he's as much a part of the political establishment as the establishment itself, if not more so.

      It's really hard to predict what a Trump presidency will be like because he broke so many trends in politics.
