Now the chicken booth wasn't bad, not bad at all. They are the ones with all the "borrowed" grills. Fine job on all those drumsticks. Yes, a better job than what I have done. (gotta work on that.)

Dr. Rebane @ Oct 20, 2:44 pm sez:

“The ground truth of all collectivism is the Big Lie told to the poor and ignorant - your misery is the fault of those who have and produce, for they have cheated you out of your things and jobs. The Big Lie has come in various formats since the time of Lenin. Today his American progeny are the socialist Democrats who have no message of how they would create and spread the wealth, save take from those who already have it. These are very old ideas that go back to the caveman, and they resonate today as much as they did 10,000 years ago.”

(Un)Surprisingly, the article dovetails nicely with the above Dr. Rebane writing, albeit on a different focus. When the people lose hope, the people perish.

“Within the research published by Mind Share Partners, SAP and Qualtrics, a stunning fact emerged that should stop us in our tracks: About “half of Millennials and 75% of Gen Zers have quit their jobs for mental health reasons.” We have a bumper crop of frail individuals who can’t live life because of what they’ve been taught, what they now believe and how they respond to reality, in the workplace and in life at large.”

I went back and actually watched the video linked by Jeffie... there were only two (2) LMU students identified in the march vid ... one an "environmental studies" major (a senior) and the other a "studio arts" student.

So, Jeff's headline, "LMU in the news" was, as is usual for Nevada City Fats, a total misdirection. A descriptive and truthful sentence would have been, "Two LMU students march in the LA climate protest". LMU was NOT in the news... even if you accept the student newspaper website as an equivalent to the LA Times.

Jeff's goto logical fallacies are argumentum ad populum and argumentum ad verecundiam... and he completely skipped over the issue I raised... his smearing my choice to attend LMU as a convenience... it being just one mile from my office at HUGHES... but Phi Beta Kappa putting its seal of approval on LMU just rolls off Jeff's backside.

Two articles I found interesting. First, VDH goes back to his theme of why do they hate Trump so. Hint: It’s his policies, stupid. That is the real threat.

“But the real source of their antipathy is his agenda.”

https://www.amgreatness.com/2019/10/20/why-do-they-hate-him-so/
——————————
The second article is about Trump’s threat to the status quo (the Beltway Boys) viewing government through rose tinted glasses.

“When Trump took office, there was a lawsuit over whether the president of the United States even had the authority install his own director of the agency, which was weirdly ironic, because the previous director of the CFPB was initially installed with the unilateral authority of President Obama in a bold move that the Supreme Court unanimously declared unconstitutional. As for the idea that “policies can be argued about and reversed,” the CFPB is still standing — anyone remember the last time a major federal agency was shuttered because Americans decided it was ill-conceived or unneeded?

While we all sit on pins and needles trying to suss out the details of Warren’s Medicare For All plans, the fact that her vision of America, one that vastly exceeds any honest constitutionalist’s understanding of how things are supposed to work, is bearing fruit isn’t just a matter of Warren having different ideas about policy. It’s the culmination of a progressive project lasting over a century that, charitably speaking, puts forward a vastly different understanding of human nature and morality than most Americans subscribe to, and was part of a deliberate plan to erode constitutional restraints by undermining the “norms, values, standards and soul of this country.”

“So then, do we live with Trump, who lays bare all the problems with what happens when naked self-interest collides with power? Or do we tell ourselves some “regulative fiction” that pretends those who populate our sprawling administrative state are somehow above their own selfish impulses and can be counted on to act in the best interests of voters, when that is plainly untrue?

If you’re wondering how Trump voters can continue to ignore Trump’s issues, it’s not even obvious to lots of voters that Trump opponents and D.C. institutionalists such as Sen. “Pow Wow Chow” Warren, Hillary “Lay off Weinstein” Clinton, and Adam “I have more than circumstantial evidence Trump colluded with Russia” Schiff are an obvious contrast to Trump even as a matter of personal corruption.

The chaos of the Trump administration may yet prove intolerable, and there are lots of conservative or sympathetic voters who didn’t vote for Trump, out of concerns that he would be petulant, unstable, and immoral. But if it’s a choice between dealing with Trump’s foibles, which are challenging at best, and pretending the immorality and dishonesty of the system he threatens — a system that will almost certainly outlast him — is somehow a better option, don’t be surprised that so many people are sticking with Trump even through impeachment.

Trump is sui generis in many ways, but voters are probably right to suspect that anyone who threatened the existing order would meet Resistance, as anyone who watched the political press cheer Obama on when he spent months calling Mitt Romney a felon in 2012 can attest to. There will be an election soon, and voters can have their say about Trump directly.

Until then, expect lots of Americans to largely ignore impeachment and a perpetually outraged press corps. As National Review’s Michael Brendan Dougherty recently put it, “I refuse to participate in a news cycle that I suspect has been led by John Brennan typing crazily in a WhatsApp group about how he’s finally vanquished the ‘pestiferous stain upon our Republic.’”

Science and politics. Science vs social narratives?

“I Asked Thousands of Biologists When Life Begins. The Answer Wasn’t Popular”

“Shortly after being awarded my Ph.D. by the University of Chicago’s department of Comparative Human Development this year, I found myself in a minor media whirlwind. I was interviewed by The Daily Wire, The College Fix, and Breitbart. I appeared on national television and on a widely syndicated radio program. All of this interest had been prompted by a working paper associated with my dissertation, which was entitled Balancing Abortion Rights and Fetal Rights: A Mixed Methods Mediation of the U.S. Abortion Debate.

As discussed in more detail below, I reported that both a majority of pro-choice Americans (53%) and a majority of pro-life Americans (54%) would support a comprehensive policy compromise that provides entitlements to pregnant women, improves the adoption process for parents, permits abortion in extreme circumstances, and restricts elective abortion after the first trimester. However, members of the media were mostly interested in my finding that 96% of the 5,577 biologists who responded to me affirmed the view that a human life begins at fertilization.

In my dissertation, I proposed three possible motivations for these hostile reactions:

-Motivated Reasoning: Respondents experience cognitive dissonance when they recognize that their view of a fetus as a human complicates their political convictions in regard to abortion policy.
-Cultural Cognition: Respondents fear that public recognition of the scientific views they are expressing could lead to other people supporting abortion restrictions.
-Identity-Protective Cognition: Respondents fear that expressing their views may serve to estrange them from pro-choice liberals, on whom they might rely for social, emotional, or financial support.”

@2:13 pm

Who is running as a Third Party candidate ? I have not heard much. No Ross Perot, no Dennis K, no John Anderson, no Ralph Nader, and no Pat Paulson?? Maybe we will have to wait until after they have their convention....’they’ meaning the smaller Independent Parties and the DNC.:)

Speaking of 3rd Parties, it was baffling to me why Hillary accused Tulsi of plotting to run as a 3rd Party Candidate. If I was more of a conspiracy theorist, I would say that is Hillary’s evil attempt to bring back the “Russia Russia Russia!” Red Scare to the forefront and Hillary is laying the groundwork to throw her witch’s hat into the ring. Afterall, she has been watching the Dem debates as well. Those debates are why Tom Steyer jumped in and got Michael Bloomberg toying with the idea again himself. Hillary to the rescue, and not bloodied and bruised by the debate process or hard questions! Time will tell.

Speaking of Hillary, did anyone else note that the Hillary Industrial Complex floated that David Duke endorsed Tulsi over the weekend!!! Hmmm, Deja Vu all over again. How many times, how many hours did Punchy, Robert ‘Always Wrong On Lost Trail’ Crosswoman shouted about David Duke liking Trump. Oh, connect the dots. Proof! So, Tulsi is in Putin’s pocket and David Duke likes her!!!! All coming from the Clinton camp. Excuse me if I don’t fall for the latest Clinton Smear Machine coordinated attack....without a bunch of reasonable evidence. I’m sorry, but I have seen that song and dance before. Personally, I would love to see the young, quick, tough Tulsi debating the old bag one on one on any stage, anytime. The Throwin’ Samoan with the beautiful face and presence versus the old sea hag. The comic relief of Hillary falling down the stage steps would be fodder for memes, for sure.

If everybody is a Russian asset, then nobody is. But, then again, Hillary does have her machine intact.

Funniest Headline of the week:

MSNBC PANEL: TULSI GABBARD DIDN’T DENY BEING A RUSSIAN ASSET
‘That was the one thing that was missing from her response.’

Aha, the ole prove a negative, roflmao.

biguns 157pm - This sackhead just keeps letting us know how liberals view the world. I saw no Mulvaney meltdown, no matter how hard Chris Wallace (FN's main liberal anchor) tried. This once more illustrates my 'no common ground' assertion - we can both be looking at the same thing and each of us sees it 180-differently. Given that, what possibility is there to open up any kind of productive dialogue?

Robert Cross

In the "screw the rule of law" category : the Donald today said at a cabinet meeting, “You people with this phony emoluments clause,”.. Are all laws the Don disagrees with phony, like obstruction of Justice, abuse of power, and so on and on and so forth?

I am Qanon, a candidate for US Senate, and I approved this message -

Bill Tozer

Quotes from this time in space:

For the record: “The United States and Mexico have a confluence of interests in stopping the flow of third-country ‘asylum-seekers’ heading for the American border. Mexicans love their country, as they should, and they’re tired of foreigners using it as a doormat.” —Mark Krikorian

Race bait: “It is no longer sufficient not to be racist — each one of us must commit to being anti-racist going forward.” —Beto O'Rourke

Non compos mentis I: “[The Russians] are going to do third party again. I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on [Tulsi Gabbard] and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s a favorite of the Russians and they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.” —Hillary Clinton

Non compos mentis II: “Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s dream. He said that the biggest catastrophe in history was the collapse of the former Soviet Union. As a former KGB guy, he is intent upon undermining democracies and trying to lay the groundwork for a resurgence of Russian greatness as he posits. And Donald Trump is delivering that to him on a daily basis.” —Hillary Clinton

Non compos mentis III: “[Trump] has no democratic instincts, really. And I saw that when I was secretary of state and traveled to 112 countries. One of our big problems were people who got themselves elected and then became authoritarian and then did everything they could to rig elections, everything they could to make sure that they were never forced out of power. That is his game plan. That is what he’s trying to achieve.” —Hillary Clinton

And last… “Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. … It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.” —Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

The prez wins again -

The Manhattan district attorney and attorneys for President Donald Trump have come to an agreement to pause the enforcement of a grand jury subpoena for Trump's tax returns until after an appeals court issues their opinion and perhaps until after the Supreme Court is asked to hear the case.

In a letter filed Monday with the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, lawyers from D.A. Cyrus Vance's office said they'll hold off on trying to enforce the subpoena against Trump's accounting firm until after the court of appeals publishes their opinion and after either one of the sides asks the Supreme Court to examine the case.

Prominent feminist writer, Julie Bindel, told The Mail on Sunday: “Removing the female symbol from sanitary towel packaging is basically denying the existence of women. We’re now moving towards the total elimination of women’s biology. The women’s symbol has been used by feminists for decades. This is pure cowardice and virtue signalling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda.”

Much of the piece was dedicated to Democrats supposedly welcoming Clinton back into the spotlight and fueling speculation as to whether she will launch a third run for the presidency.

"And she’s certainly stirring up a lot of drama while doing it. The two-time Democratic presidential candidate continues to loom large in the psyche of her party — both as heroine and villain."

"She makes a no-evidence charge of treachery against Tulsi Gabbard and gets a puff piece from the New York Times," Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume reacted.

Clinton has been making headlines in recent weeks while promoting her new book she wrote with her daughter, Chelsea. However, she was blasted by both the right and the left for spreading a claim about Gabbard being influenced by the Russians without evidence during an interview last week.

The city's Democratic Mayor Jenny Durkan in late September signed into law a bill that could prove costly to those unable to keep up with emerging home technology. A tax on heating oil for homes will go into effect starting next summer, giving residents of Seattle less than a year to make costly adjustments or risk paying even more in taxes.

The tax, which some critics deem a "sin tax," will be to the amount of $0.24 per gallon. The genesis behind the law is to continue the city’s push to be carbon-neutral by 2050."

“Police Groups Slam Beto’s Plan to Send Cops to Collect Americans’ Guns
Police say confiscation plan is 'ridiculous,' unconstitutional, call O'Rourke a hypocrite”

“In interviews with the Washington Free Beacon, leaders from groups representing hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers described Beto's gun confiscation plan as "ridiculous," "asinine," and likely unconstitutional.

“Their comments come after Beto told MSNBC on Wednesday that he would send "law enforcement to recover" firearms from those who would not comply with his buy-back plan. O'Rourke vividly described the plan at September's Democratic primary debate, declaring that "hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47."

A leader of the National Fraternal Order of Police—the nation's largest police union, representing more than 330,000 sworn law-enforcement officers—said that not only was Beto's plan unlikely to be constitutional but that Beto himself was unlikely to ever be elected.

"Mr. O'Rourke may not be aware that state and local police officers (who comprise more than 90% of all police in the U.S.) receive their orders from their local jurisdictions – not from the Federal government," Jim Pasco, executive director of the FOP, wrote in an email to the Free Beacon. "Further, any such legislation, if it passed, would no doubt be vigorously litigated with a view to its apparent inconsistency with the Second Amendment."

"In view of the foregoing, and in view of Mr. O'Rourke's current standing in the polls, we do not view this as an issue we will have to grapple within the foreseeable future," he added.

https://freebeacon.com/politics/police-groups-slam-betos-plan-to-send-cops-to-collect-americans-guns/

"It's just asinine," the source said. "I get why they're doing it, but it's fantasy land. We can't even get the guys on the hill to to talk about level one and he's at Defcon twelve. It's like, ‘good luck with all that.'"

Man oh man do the wokesters in the fakenews business know how to destroy a once profitable public service that is now just an echo chamber for the socialist dem clown car. -

The former “CBS This Morning” host — who is getting paid at least $7 million a year by CBS News boss Susan Zirinsky to revive the perennially third-ranked newscast — is getting hammered in the ratings worse than her predecessors did.

In the last week alone, O’Donnell’s total viewers plunged 17 percent to 5.1 million, according to Nielsen. Among viewers in the crucial demographic ages 25 to 54 that’s coveted by advertisers, the drop was a heart-stopping 25 percent.

The slide has steadily accelerated during the past month, with weekly ratings in the key age group falling between 20 and 29 percent versus a year ago. That’s far steeper than the single-digit drops during the year-and-a-half tenure of her predecessor Jeff Glor, who was pulling down $2 million a year, according to a source.

I thought you conservatives believe in blah, blah (fill in the blanks) blah blah.

“There’s a certain kind of liberal who likes to tell conservatives what they should think about this or that matter in order to be true to conservatism. He has no counterpart on the other side of the political divide. I know of no conservative who gets off on telling liberals what they should think about anything. We tend to confine ourselves to pointing out liberal hypocrisy.

“What explains this difference between liberals and conservatives? Perhaps it’s just that conservatives are less inclined to waste time telling people who don’t share our perspective what they should think. Maybe liberals are more sanctimonious than conservatives. It might have something to do with conservatives getting into heads of liberals more than the other way around.”

But the notion that the only rational reason for conservatives to back him is that he’s the enemy of our political adversaries is laughable. It’s typical, though, of the kind of garbage liberals produce when they tell conservatives what they are thinking, or should think.“

He's not wealthy per se…..but he does emit gases both in his personal space and while jetting round the world in "Pallet Class" (All jet, no lag)!


A new study by Swedish academics has found that most wealthy people and celebrities are not changing their flying habits to help reduce climate change, with some responsible for a thousand times more CO2 emissions than the average.

Imagine my shock.

The study, carried out by researchers from from Lund University, reviewed the social media accounts of well known celebrities and wealthy philanthropists, many of who relentlessly virtue signal about climate change.

Based on the information posted relating to travel, researchers calculated the starting point and destination for flights and then worked out likely CO2 emissions.

Climate activist Bill Gates Jeff Pelline was responsible for approximately 1,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide (and even more when you factor in the air travel), while flights used by Paris Hilton and Jennifer Lopez emitted 1,260 tonnes and 1,050 tonnes respectively.

These figures compare to a global average of 100 kilos per person per year for air travel, or in other words more than a thousand times higher.
According to the researchers, only a minority of the individuals studied have altered their behavior to minimize or stop flying.

“Their lifestyles are norm-setting and identity-building. Above all, young people dream of traveling around the world in a similar way, without having to worry about money,” said Stefan Gössling.

Once again, it’s very much a case of do as we say not as we do.

“Is there anybody else?” We are all Pierre Delecto

“I’m also pretty sure Romney is a great guy, even if the senator’s politics are different than mine, which is why I find it especially telling that his bizarre anonymous Twitter account was so very silly.

“For all the years of stately self-presentation, disciplined rhetoric, and neatly coiffed hair, Romney is just another boomer who uses social media to yell at Fox News. For all Romney’s connections and all his power, he, too, still feels compelled to devote precious time to airing grievances online—even when nobody is watching!

“This is the damage Twitter hath done. It is a time suck, irresistible even to those with the least to gain. Romney’s sad, secret account reveals something about Twitter’s strategic reliance on human nature: we all just want to be heard, and social media affords us that catharsis. So powerful is this catharsis, even Mitt Romney, a man with a Senate office and the means to build a car elevator, chases its fleeting satisfaction.”

George 12:26 -- "in the what evidence do you have" category: Reports coming out of today's hearings confirm that President Trump held up military aid to Ukraine until it agreed to investigate Joe Biden. This is, according to the rule of law, an impeachable offense along the lines of conspiring with a foreign country to influence our elections; abuse of power for personal gain, an obvious pattern with trumpler if one actually cares to look.. You must think that where there is smoke there is fake news. Visibility from trumpler's smokescreen is now down to 3 inches, but still some people see no possibility of a fire being behind it.

RobertC 127pm - Do you believe anything that comes out of Schiff's Star Chamber? The interviewees have been protesting Schiff's reports of what they said - short form, Schiff is lying just as he was when he first told us about Trump's telecon transcript. Until we can see the witnesses testify, it's all Dem bullshit. There is absolutely no reason to hold those hearings closed to all except Democrats.

Bill Tozer

“Reports coming out of today's hearings confirm that President Trump held up military aid...blah, blah, blah”

So glad the hearing are finally out in the open! Reports coming out of the inquiry confirm that Pencilneck is cherry picking texts, hours of testimony, a little tidbit here, half sentence there, while just about every “witness” testified contrary to the Shiftylipps’s narrative.

Reports coming out of today's hearings confirm that President Trump held up military aid to Ukraine until it agreed to investigate DNC/Ukrainian corruption and (foreign) interference in the 2016 election, a foreign influence which is something that has been THE top priority of the Democrat Party since Trump’s shoe heel ground Hillary’s face into the dust. Top priority until now. Odd.

Reports coming out of the closed door secret inquiry say the new Ukrainian Prez did not know about any military aid being withheld at the time of the call nor was he pressured.

Reports coming out of secret secret decoder ringer closed door hearings and public statements say that Pencil Neck Shiftylipps has seen the irrefutable smoking gun evidence that Trump colluded (conspired) with the Russians.....something Mueller’s Dream Team of Top Tier lawyers with an unlimited budget mysteriously failed find.

Reports coming out of today's hearings confirm that Bobbie wishes so much for it to be true.

Keep digging Bobbie, sooner or later you will get something correct...if not here, then dig until your reach China. Keep digging, it’s down there somewhere, you just know it is.

Meanwhile -

Sondland, who has also testified on Capitol Hill, responded to Taylor's text message at the time by saying, "Bill, I believe you are incorrect about President Trump's intentions. The President has been crystal clear: no quid pro quo's of any kind. The President is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is truly going to adopt the transparency and reforms that President Zelensky promised during his campaign."

As for Tuesday's testimony, Taylor was described to Fox News as a "good" witness for Democrats and, on balance, "not good" for Republicans. But Fox News is told Taylor did not deliver new evidence to strengthen Democrats' impeachment push.

The sources said Taylor had no firsthand knowledge or other direct evidence that Ukrainian officials knew that aid to the country had been suspended at the time of the July 25 call between Trump and President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"Enter the Dragon


You’d think Hillary Clinton might come up with a better zinger than “Russian asset” when she flew out of her volcano on leathery wings Friday and tried to jam her blunted beak through Tulsi Gabbard’s heart. Much speculation has been brewing in the Webiverse that the Flying Reptile of Chappaqua might seek an opening to join the Democratic Party 2020 free-for-all. Wasn’t “Russian asset” the big McGuffin in the Mueller Report — the tantalizing and elusive triggering device that added up to nothing — and aren’t most people over twelve years old onto that con by now?"

the whole ‘impeach this ‘ thing is the right’s deflection of the truth. Their mantra is that non-trump supporters are trying to “overturn” the election in a coup rather than prosecute criminals. They prey upon stupid people (you would have to be to support trump at this juncture, if ever) who have had their brains rinsed and to longer have the ability to objectively analyze what is really going on. So trump pulls their strings and they dance like Howdy Doody.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is not content to sit on the sidelines as the 2020 election gears up, instead dishing out harsh criticism against her former rival President Donald Trump and even accusing a Democrat now running for president of being a Russian asset.
The Associated Press (AP) published a feature on Clinton entitled “Democrats’ 2020 race has a new shadow: Hillary Clinton,” that points out she is different than others who have lost a presidential election

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/22/former-hillary-clinton-aide-there-are-people-who-believe-she-won/

Some Democrats are putting up caution signs for Hillary Clinton as she wades back into presidential politics by casting 2020 candidate Tulsi Gabbard as a "Russian asset," mocking President Donald Trump's dealings with a foreign leader and drawing counterattacks from both.

RobertC 445pm - My thoughts on 'Trump's 12,000 lies' are a matter of record here. Your avoiding the topic of Schiff's lies about what goes on in the Star Chamber interviews is telling. No Dem wants to talk about the political lynching that is going on right now; everything about that odious process must be deflected. And what kind of people are so easily deflected from what really is going on in this impeachment process - no need for criminality, it's all political? The impeachment panic is going on for only ONE REASON, the Dems know that they don't have a snowball's chance in hell of defeating Trump at the polls in 2020 with anyone from their clown car of candidates who are running. The job must be done with a political show before the election to properly impact the double dummies.

Bernie’s Big, Bolshie, Biden-Boosting Bash

“Sanders’s speech was characteristically Sandernista stuff: Droning, badgering, meandering, enervating, needlessly, endlessly long. Sanders is the kind of guy who could promise every American free Netflix for life and still make it sound like a shut-up-and-take-your-medicine speech. The man is pure Castro oil. As his brillo-pad-on-sandpaper voice flayed the eardrums, the Bernie signs drooped. Even his most ardent fans looked at each other like they were ankle-deep in a bear trap. Whether Sanders was being uselessly vague (“Our legislation. Will hold. The fossil-fuel industry. Accountable.”) or issuing absurdly unrealistic blue-sky promises (“Our program will eliminate homelessness in America!”), he sounded completely irrelevant to 2019. Five years older than the oldest Baby Boomer, already ten years past the average life expectancy of a man born in 1941, he is not the man to lead America through the 2020s. He’s the man at the deli who wants his tuna-on-rye special Retoasted, the right way this time.“......

“Students of socialism know that, from its earliest days, it has been led by intellectuals and authoritarians who have always struggled to find one or two actual workers it can shove to the front of the parade. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who also introduced Sanders and recalled being a bartender in lower Manhattan as recently as last February, is the ideal proletarian face. But she, too, is a refugee from New York City public schools, those bastions of left-liberal Democrats and the teachers’ unions that fund them. Her family moved to Westchester to escape Bronx schools, yet she and Sanders proposed to solve the (urban) education crisis by paying teachers more while demanding nothing in return, aka rewarding failure, hence guaranteeing that future Cabáns and Ocasio-Cortezes will also flee urban schools. And then use their education to become activists opposing school choice.

“Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez’s presence did bring up a somewhat delicate topic, though: In a struggling part of one of the most famously diverse corners of the entire country, the crowd was, erm, shall we say, not quite as diverse as it might have been. Bernie’s fans look like they’ve spent more time in punk bands and poetry workshops than in public housing, like they came to socialism after becoming disenchanted with the Future Equestrians of America and majored in Quidditch at Bowdoin College. This is why the lustiest cheer went up when Sanders yelled, “We can cancel all student debt in America with a modest tax on Wall Street speculation!” Woo-hoo! Nothing says, “Uplift the working class” like “Giant payoffs for Bolshevik Bowdoinians!” No wonder the working people who actually live in that housing project next door to the rally took no interest in it whatsoever.“
