The whole I'm for, I'm against is a logistical game for the benefit of those who live in the realm of language games.
The Trump game is merely a sequel to the Apprentice.

Dude, she's running in the other party.
This is what I am saying about respecting philosophy over politics.
I only noticed her as the only remotely interesting candidate on the left.
If she had voted no, I don't need to tell you in what corner she'd forever have been nailed.
I hope I don't need to tell you.
She is young, this is American politics. What did you expect - Jeanne D'Arc?

Of course the impeachment move is just a bunch of nazis who are fucking their grandchildren and butchering them and drinking their blood having some kind of pity-party for themselves. And of course anyone partaking in that vote is complicit in nazism. But then, nazis had a big part in building modern America and at one point someone with some personal strength has to operate from within that slime.

Get a load of his chart brosephus. https://www.astrotheme.com/astrology/Tulsi_Gabbard
It wasn't even findable online when I first noticed her, I drew it myself from what I knew of her cypher. The fact that now every astrology site has it prominently posted already proves what Ive been saying to be true.

That doesn't mean I'll stop supporting Trump, that doesn't mean Im going to be switching over my support to a party which contains the worst depravity the world has seen in centuries - you think me too shallow.

Classical Astrologer wrote:[TULSI GABBARD] has been a soldier for 15 years and served in Iraq, including in the medical corp where she saw the cost of war up close, She knows the cost of war and can speak with more authority on the subject than any of her fellow Democrats seeking the Presidency in 2020. Moreover, at the age of 27, she served in the Hawaiian House of Representatives from 2002 – 2004 politics since the age of twenty-one, Presently, she serves as the first Samoan American and the first Hindu member of the United States Congress. The list continues. She has an unusual grasp of Foreign Affairs. In brief, any opponent has to know what they are up against. She has a common touch and charisma, but it’s plain that her own Party is doing what it can to suppress her.

P. James Clark wrote:Tom, since you haven’t bothered to make any astrological comments, let me remind you that Major Gabbard has more relevant experience as a politician and soldier that anyone else standing against her in the Democratic campaign for the Presidency. She has first-hand experience of war and has every right to speak her mind on the issue. However, this goes far further than withdrawal from Afghanistan. She was elected to the Hawaiian House of Representatives at the age of 21. It’s far too easy to write someone off as a typical liberal, but in this case, she really isn’t and no matter what your political persuasion, she is worthy of respect. At times, I think she may have more admiration from outside her Party. Her stands on the Justice System are long-overdue and her point that a wealthy paedophile can escape a meaningful sentence, which the jails are full of non-violent drug offenders, some in for-profit private prisons. I fail to see why this would be a partisan issue. On one issue after another, she is well informed and her positions considered She is the most substantive candidate I’ve seen in a generation. No matter what happens. Major Gabbard will have made a strong impact on the future of American politics by expanding its range and awakening its conscience to the betterment of a just society.

Crazy commies will never vote for her. And now, having sided (even if "grudgingly") with the nazis, neither will enough deplorables.

This I guess was also evident before. But insofar as she represented a hope for a sane new "center," that in the end she sided with the old order of things by going along to get along, to support what can only be a dealbraker for such a bright future, means she threw that innocent future into the fray, on the nazi's side.

I don't take you for shallow. I have simply myself finished entretaining anything but the shallow, where balls trump tactics. I feel many of us have. We are done navigating sewers. Trump gave us that.

Lines are drawn, masks are off and, for the nazis, so are the gloves.

Tulsi was a decade too late. For now.

She served over a decade in the military and you're going to question her balls, no less on the count of a machiavellian vote. Whats in it for her to vote against impeachment? You expect her to be a lady. She is a soldier. Whats in it in the long haul is some sanity in the democratic party. What more can you ask for?

Could she beat Trump if the Democratic Party was behind her? Possibly, given all the media powers. But is it? No. Can she pull a Trump on them? No, she cant, she is a woman first of all and much less experienced than Trump is. Trump s just the guy who gets you a foothold in the war, a great general who plans an invasion that goes better than expected and is then criticized for not completing the whole objective of the entire war.
Yet the whole world order did change on account of Trump. The Cold War is finally over, meaning WW1 is over.
Trump resolved the Cold War with Russia, China and North Korea.
Did he, like England did, win the war by relinquishing the empire?
Absolutely not, Americas empire is its absolute dominance in global culture.

Yet you cant just reduce military spending, because you'll make problems.
Lol.

You just cant. The requirements of that massive spending is in the nature of the beast.
So then, where do you spend it?
Projects.

But what kind of projects?
Projects that will for centuries to come integrate the great masses of the world in the culture of personal relaxation and private space.

From this isolation comes a new order, a Greek civilization across the Equator.

If everything were as settled as that, the impeachment would not be so important. They would not be pushing for it so hard.

Mind you, that doesn't mean they think they are actually going to get it. Like so much in politics, it is actually about so much else.

I think the Facebook AI chatbots have been paying attention to us.

Reading this conversation between them, which allegedly was cut short by fb crew as they stood by in terror, always makes me laugh heartily.

Bob: “I can can I I everything else.”

Alice: “Balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to.”


At last, some sincerity.

Rebe? :-k but anyway.. here it is about that/about the left getting "back into power".. the rest of the world is a different case and set of circumstance altogether.

Yet another snap General Election has been called, and all sides have called their members and supporters to arms.. the Left are definitely gagging for it.

Greta Thurnburg isn't protesting the system. She IS the system.

I been saying this for years, since its infancy. They are just giving cowards who know The Man is evil a reason to back The Man. They don't not see it because it is not clear, they don't see it because, deep down, they don't have the stones to face down the system. They want mommy and daddy to take care of them, consequences be damned, the world be damned. Evon though, deep down, they know.

Like Christian rap.

Her last public outing proved to be her last (or has she been wheeled out since? I dunno) as the manner and tone in which she orated was derogatory and demeaning to those who’s ears her words hit.. addressing a global audience in disgust of them is not a well-thought-out strategy or idea.. even to her fans.

Why you picking on Christian rap? lol

It was just too clear of an illustration. Christian Rap should not take it personally.

Greta is not a wave, she is an ocean. Right now the wave is retreating, gathering power, consolidating, spreading inwards.

The next wave might not have her face on it, but it likely will.

" the rest of the world is a different case and set of circumstance altogether. "

All parts of the world like to think that. Particularities notwithstanding.

Bloomberg would be an opponent worth crushing. That is a man honestly siding with that crap he calls a political tendency. I would welcome it. Refreshing, true, honest. Real battle.

Gabbard only makes it all more wretched the more she attempts to sell herself to us. America first, but impeach Trump? Evil foreign policy establishment, but aid Iran against Saudi Arabia?


Puke.

I would be exceedingly happy at a Bloomberg candidature. That is the kind of enemy we need. Strong, proud, honest, unafraid. that is my view of democracy. He is not out to bullshit anyone.

He also should not try to out-Trump Trump. He does not have the flair or the style to get by on self-promotion. he needs to get the democratic establishment behind him. A hostile take-over, that shouldn't be foreign to him.

promethean75 wrote:he's right, mags. people and culture today that represent leftist ideology are experiencing a kind of practicio-inert created by the three hundred year environment of western capitalism, a culture that has poisoned people to such depths that they can't utter a word without plotting and scheming against someone or something. the left is a frankenstein brought to life by capitalism planting the seeds of its own destruction. a slow, prolonged and systematic process of sabotaging the possibility for any genuine collective effort and sympathy for 'the other' through propagating individualistic ideology in every single facet of consumer culture. even leftists are selfish assholes now, because this ethos has been so meticulously planted into their psyche.

There is currently a massive upheaval of change going on, starting with the individual upwards, but where will it lead to and end? Will it be worth it? At least it currently offers a freer mind than was had before, but.. like all good Brits, I’m not averse to a capitalist state, within a mixed economy model.

but you gotta fight fire with fire and hold your breath from the stench of politics until this thing resolves itself. the days of honest socialist coups lenin style are over. we have to do the whole 'gradual reform' thing, like a movie that's three hours but shoulda been an hour and a half, tops, because all the actors suck and the plot is lame.

Lol.

If pure Socialism doesn’t work, and pure Capitalism isn’t endeared, then why aren’t more Nations adopting the mixed-economy model.. or are they?

Politics is my fragrance/parfume/scent of choice, don’t ya know.. I’m not averse to it’s sweet heady smell, with base notes of back-stabbing, lies, and Homosapien musk. :)

A lot tried. Results are mixed, it seems only England has fully been able to pull it off AND:

Even in England, you see one of its unavoidable effects: the commies, who never really preferred a mixed anything, eventually start pushing for out-and-out communism. Annoyingly, they push harder the more succesfull the mixed model is.
