Probably the best proposal overall that I've ever seen from any candidate in any election? Extremely comprehensive @aggielean @matthias

Joe Biden would do better trying to run as a Republican. 

1)support the same policies

2) old and losing mental faculties just like trump.

3) will appeal to a white majority that just want a normal president again.

 

but it’s increasingly clear this man has no business being the democrat nominee. 

yeah.  Bernie is a much better option.  As he draws young white folks who don't actually vote.

... the Houston Chronicle reported, based on interviews with anonymous officials, that a number of senior military officials, including members of the joint chiefs of staff, were in disagreement with the White House’s drive for war with Iraq, and believed that Hussein posed no immediate threat to the United States. The day before the hearings, Scott Ritter, the former chief weapons inspector at the UN, cautioned that it was far from “inevitable” that Iraq had restarted its weapons program, and warned that “Biden’s open embrace of regime removal in Baghdad” threatened to make the hearings “devolve into a political cover” for Congress to authorize Bush’s war.

Yet as Stephen Zunes reported for the Progressive in April 2019, none of these views were aired at Biden’s hearings, which opened with Biden stating that WMDs “must be dislodged from Saddam, or Saddam must be dislodged from power,” and that “if we wait for the danger from Saddam to become clear, it could be too late.” Ritter himself was never invited to testify. 

Neither were other experts critical of the Bush narrative on Iraq, including Rolf Ekéus, the former executive chairman of the United Nations Special Commission, the inspection regime set up after the Gulf War to deal with WMDs, and former UN assistant secretary-general Hans-Christof von Sponeck, who complained that he was “very agitated by the deliberate distortions and misrepresentations” that made it “look to the average person in the US as if Iraq is a threat to their security.” According to Biden, Bush later thanked him for the hearings.

Joe Biden's long record of favoring political expediency over sound judgement during pivotal moments in our nation's history should clearly demonstrate (to anyone paying attention) that he lacks the capacity to wisely lead our nation as POTUS.

I’ll look it over some more, but after a quick skim, it’s pretty sound. There’s quite a bit packed into this proposal, and would do a lot of good. It’s a start

He has made strides from 2016.  Won’t argue that.  But the Bernie Bros (young, loud angry white dude) still remains the core IMO. 

and while diversifying, his support is still the  unreliable young voters.  

Fact remains, the Feelin the Bern crowd just wants what happened to the Republican Party with Trump...to happen on the left.  Which is a fringe element to take over a party....that the candidate doesn’t really belong to.

    • Who knew so much damn drama would arise from us winning with a backup?
    • But the Bucs game has an asterisk next to it, honestly. No moral victories here but a healthy Cam or Kyle and that game turns out the way the London game went. 
    • Don't know where you're 'digging in' but you're wrong. The 16% figure you quoted is only for additional supporting roles like psychologists and teaching assistants. 45% goes to restore/augment arts, science and history education. Something that's been sorely lacking as they've hacked away at it for the last 30 or so years. So 61% goes toward education in Mecklenburg County. Of course we should be the ones covering the expense. Who the fug else would do it?! You have three kids, I have none. You're way more of a resource burden on our city than my family is. If anyone should be bitching about higher taxes it should be me, but I see the value in educated children and more places for them to enjoy the outdoors, even for those that aren't mine. You should too.    The revenue garnered through this proposed quarter-cent increase in the sales tax (approximately $50 million per year) will be invested in Mecklenburg County in four ways: 45% ($22.5 million) to restore and expand arts, science and history education in public schools, enable cultural programs that reach deep into neighborhoods and ensure residents have access to arts and culture regardless of where they live or what they can afford 34% ($17 million) in increased funding for our parks and greenways to revitalize our system, which was ranked near the bottom of a recent national study of metropolitan parks systems 16% ($8 million) for increased teacher supplements and additional classroom support, such as psychologists and teacher assistants 5% ($2.5 million) for arts and culture programs and parks in Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville. For each of us, the increase amounts to five cents for every $20 we spend, and it excludes groceries, gas and prescription medicine. I believe this is a small investment relative to the benefits our community will reap in educational experiences for all our citizens.
