Today the democratic socialist party listed a preliminary list of objectives:
1. Agree the USA has systematical racism
2. Rejoin the Paris Climate accord
3. Declare that " Housing is a right"
4. Repealing the "Right to work laws" (let's join the union)
5. "Card Check" yea that got to do with unions too

6. Raise taxes
7. Medicare for all
8. Cutting police force nationwide
9. Gun Control
10. Prevent arrest at schools

11. Reparations for slavery
12. Increase federal funding for abortions
13. " Green Deal" funding
14. Restrictions on polictical speech ( goodbye 1st ammendment)
15. Make DC the 51st state

16. Stop the construction of border wall, open borders
17. Path to citizenship for illegals
18. Restrictions on charter schools, take away funding
19. Rejoin the United Nations human rights council. Of course the name is opposite. of what they actually do.
20. Net neutrality, thank goodness we don't have it now during the lock down

21. End China trade war.
22. Return to the Obama Iran trade deal
23. Fund the Palestinian terrorist

Note it doesn't say the Democratic Party but Democratic Socialist Party. In that vein, the list seems far too conservative to believe.

Remember when the predictions of 60,000 deaths in the US by August 1st was called ridiculous? Look at us now.
My friends at Google have been told they will not be coming back to their office until July 2021 now.
Selfish stupidity reigns supreme

This is the real story. Can you imagine Asian drivers never taking a driving test?

In other news, Hong Kong officials have just decided to postpone all driving tests being offered in the city.

HONG KONG TO SUSPEND DRIVING TESTS FROM WEDNESDAY DUE TO VIRUS

I just heard from a friend and former co-worker that my old company has just decided to keep their offices in East Philly closed until the end of the year.

The media strikes again. ANYTHING to hurt Trump.
DeSantis is doing a good job, remaining power in possession of the people while strongly encouraging common sense. On another note,
Wonder why Republican run states aren't having all the rioting issues.

No, but I remember when the prediction of 2 million dead by the election was called ridiculous....and still is looking that way.

Always have the deflector shields at 100%. Sweet
What deflection. I pointedly answered your 60K prediction question.

No one thought this Covid-19 infection would be less than a terrible flu season which usually around 100K.

Most people hoped it would be better but knew it would most likely be worse.

No, actually I read the article of a conservative news site, I tried to find link but it was from a couple of days ago, no luck. But it was on the net so it's got to be true. Right.

But looking for link I did found out one thing, most everything on that list has been mention in all the different state democratic partys draft for the 2020 convention.
On my list numbers 3 4 5 8 10 11 14 16 18 19 20 23 we're not mention entirely but I have heard many a Democrats politician speak in favor.

So I don't see any of these of being really far left from the democratic party. But until the convention we won't know.

Since you are the resident Democrats hear on this forum, and you are a rational person, maybe you could clear this up. Of all the goals I listed which ones to you believe should be the platform of the democratic party. If you don't care to answer I understand.

Companies are starting to realize the saving that could be had from closing and downsizing offices. I expect this to turn into a trend.

LOL....You are absolutely correct, if it it on the internet it has to be true!!! I do not know about the Democratic platform but here is what I believe and think should be on anyone's platform. Of course if they both did this there wouldn't be any need for two parties, right?

1. Agree the USA has systematical racism - Unfortunately yes.
2. Rejoin the Paris Climate accord - Yes, we do not exist alone on this planet. We have to work with other nations for our best interests.
3. Declare that " Housing is a right" - That would be a no.
4. Repealing the "Right to work laws" (let's join the union) - This would also be a no.
5. "Card Check" yea that got to do with unions too - Not sure what this is.

6. Raise taxes - I'd rather cut spending but try to get a politician to do that. No one wants to raise taxes but we do not want to give up services either, right?
7. Medicare for all - Oh hell no. Do we need to get medical costs under control, yes. But this, no. We could never get it to work.
8. Cutting police force nationwide - Actually cutting the amount of officers, no way. Realigning forces to make them more efficient, yes.
9. Gun Control - I'm a gun owner so I do not believe in having our guns taken away. That said, anything that can be done to keep weapons out of the wrong hands should be, at least, discussed.
10. Prevent arrest at schools - Only if there is a clear and present danger to students, teachers or other school personnel

11. Reparations for slavery - No.
12. Increase federal funding for abortions. Men have to stop telling woman what they can and cannot do with their bodies. Do I like it, no. but it is none of my GD business.
13. " Green Deal" funding - We have issues on this planet that need to be dealt with. I believe that there are parts of the initiative that make sense. There are others that are pure bonkers.
14. Restrictions on polictical speech ( goodbye 1st ammendment) - Need clarification on what "political" speech is. That said I do believe in the 1st, but in 2020 we have to give some consideration about what free speech actually is.
15. Make DC the 51st state - Sure, why not. Doesn't really mean anything to me one way or the other.

16. Stop the construction of border wall, open borders - Two totally different things. Always have been. I do not believe in open borders. Honestly that's political talk. No one is for just letting everyone in. But a "wall" will never work. That's been proven over and over again.
17. Path to citizenship for illegals - Well what choice do we really have. You're not sending millions of people back where they came from. Also citizenship is not an easy thing to get. Give them a chance. If they pass they get it. if they don't.....well they don't.
18. Restrictions on charter schools, take away funding - Not well versed on this topic so I cannot comment.
19. Rejoin the United Nations human rights council. Of course the name is opposite. of what they actually do. - Then fix it. You have to be part of it to change it. We are the most powerful nation on Earth. Let's use that power in a productive manner.
20. Net neutrality, thank goodness we don't have it now during the lock down - I do not think you know what this really is. If you did you would not be against it. It actually protects us from big brother. That said, it's gone and the internet is still here so who knows.

21. End China trade war. - I think the farmers would like to see it stop. I haven't seen any positive results from it. The "trade war" was 100% political. It hasn't helped and it has hurt many.
22. Return to the Obama Iran trade deal - Under the heading of keep your friends close, yes I would. At least we had a seat at the table. Was it perfect, no, of course not. What agreement with an enemy is?
23. Fund the Palestinian terrorist - Once again I do not think any political party would to agree with this. I know I sure don't.

So there you go. Like i said these ultra right wing networks like ONN are every bit as bad as the ultra left ones. They are both BS.

And by the way, I'm not a Democrat. Haven't been one in quite some time. I'll enter my vote for whomever I feel is the best candidate. If that is not possible I'll vote for the one who I believe will do the least damage. Unfortunately, many of my recent votes have gone that way.

10 4 thanks.
#5. card check is if you are in a union vote, it is not private from officers of union.
So let's see your ballet, ummm, maybe we need to have a little talk about the way you voted.
#14. some say is limiting what you can say to a politician,or about a polictical issue. Sure that would go all the way down to dog catcher. I can see big problems with this.
#15. Democrates want it for the additional senators and congressman. Cause we all know what party DC is
#18. Basically some parents would rather have school choice, my county northwest of you, and the county south of you is terrible, typical let them pass cause they come from a bla bla bla. drugs, no respect etc...
So parents want the ability to send to charter school or home school. Evidently now funds follow student. Democrates don't want the competion because teacher unions don't want the competition. Fill in the blanks from here.
#23 I haven't researched throughly but I believe at one time we were sending money through the back door to the PLO and Obama or Trump stopped because it got into mainstream. But heck we fund half the evil in this world.
