    I'm still a little skeptical because socialism is communism is totalitarian dictatorship in America.

I dunno, man. The kids rallied behind Bernie Sanders and he's a flag-waving socialist. Meanwhile the Republican Party is all gung-ho over the virility and decisiveness of a genuine, bona-fide KGB operative whose background includes oversight of the Stasi in East Berlin.

The 'wingers seem to have lost all concern over big-C Communism and the TechBros are mixing Universal Basic Income and other neo-Utopian schemes in with their Ayn Rand and if that's not radical realignment I don't know what is. I mean, Lolbrooks legit said "Republican or Conservative, you have to choose." When Michael Bloomberg and George Will are saying Down With Republicans you know shit is out past the envelope.

I loved that column. Lolbrooks pining for the compassionate conservatism of W, the community oriented compassion of Hurricane Katrina, No Child Left Behind, and the Iraq war, in the same breath that he bemoans market fundamentalism. Only lolbrooks can hold those two thoughts on his head simultaneously without the faintest trace of irony. That's why we love him.

I gave Bernie about a hundred dollars I couldn't afford. I'm skeptical of the older people in her district. Maybe wary is a better word.

Also how could you not use this picture of Putin? Who was clearly on holiday and wanted to see the greatest American ever
