Can I just assume that they didn't bother actually asking her, because I'm guessing that they didn't just ask her...

There's this talk about unity as this kind of vague, kumbaya, kind of term. Unity and unifying isn't a feeling, it's a process.

The whole process of coming together should be uncomfortable for everyone involved - that's how you know it's working.


She is absolutely fantastic and I am looking forward to voting for her when she is old enough to become the youngest president in American history.

TFA printed ~1,300 words of her response to questions about Biden and the gap between her and him.

Beating Donald Trump is a matter of life or death for our communities. I think it's a difference between making an argument for harm reduction, and making the argument for, there's actually going to be progress made for us.

I just want to improve people's lives. And while we'll improve people's lives with Donald Trump not in the White House, we need to do better than what we've done before.

I will be supporting the Democratic nominee in November. I would just hope that the nominee supports our communities too.

I just want to tell the truth and I want to feel good about the truth.


Swoon.

So we're gonna go with the "sniffing hair" thing as the GOP/Rights/FSB's talking point on Biden.  Good to know.

IKR? As opposed to if she ever met Trump where he would try to grab her crotch, you know, like a real gentleman.

/I say he would "try" because I'm confident that he would be subjected to a most righteous ass whooping before he even got close.

They floated this olive branch to the progressive left of lowering the Medicare age to 60. And it's almost insulting. I think Hillary was looking at policies that lowered it to 50.

I prefer having the Medicare age down to zero while having it also cover all dental and vision and a few more things that Medicare doesn't cover.

There would be no reason for Biden to reach out to AOC.

This ties back to the thread about Biden reaching out to Sanders.  He did that because Sanders is the current progressive leader.  It shows that he's serious about creating a unity platform.  Biden is doing what he should.

The more interesting question is this... has SANDERS reached out to AOC?

Sanders has likely run his last race.  Leadership of the progressive movement post-Sanders is an open question.  Given the looming leadership vacuum, what role is AOC being offered / want to play?

Same question re: Warren... what's her role in the progressive caucus going forward?

The link is solid. One of the better reads on Fark today, based on my scientific analysis of 4.5 total minutes' worth of TFA-reading. The headline? Eh. Joking about how handsy Biden is shouldn't be considered a giveaway to someone being a Bro/MAGAt.
 
2020-04-14 5:22:31 PM  
She's Puerto Rican, so she'd probably kiss him on the cheek to say hello with a half hesitation to see if he's ok with it. That's how you do when you're Hispanic and have to greet a gringo. This awkwardness is particularly common if there's other people Latinos or Europeans in the room who you know are totally down with the kissing and don't want to offend some gringos by leaving them out.

Of course, since that hesitation eye contact consent deal is not a 100 percent accurate method, Biden may end up writing a scathing op-ed about how he felt violated by AOC's inappropriate greeting. She will then be hounded out of congress as dozens of other stories about awkward hello kisses from back in college and high school come out.

What exactly does a stupid "sniffing hair" joke have to do with "better things are possible" exactly?

Or, if by "better things", do you mean more explicit porn like Sanders wrote?

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man - as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.
The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday - and go to Church, or maybe to their 'revolutionary' political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore?

- Bernie Sanders



// This has nothing to do with "better things are possible". It has everything to do with Bros trying to get Trump elected.

Even if he huffs the head of every person he meets, (he doesn't)
Even if he forgets what he's saying halfway through every sentence (he doesn't)
He's still a million times better than trump.

Just having someone who can fill the damned vaccancies in the various departments with people who aren't trying to achieve the exact opposite of whatever the department is set up for, is a huge step forward.

I hope he wins, he's only human and definitely not perfect but he's streets ahead of trump.

Seems to be. Centrists were quick to run progressive Senator Al Franken out of office just because of a picture of him pretend touching breasts (not even physically touching them) and yet all the creepy things Joe does is suddenly off limits. Not even jokes about it are allowed because it "helps Trump" (even though pushing the nomination of someone who has those issues, means we can't say "We're better than Trump" when it comes to inappropriate sexual contact from our candidate). I really hope this doesn't come back to bite Democrats on the ass, we really need Trump out of office.

Every response in this article was eloquent and nuanced. She was handed many opportunities to talk shiat about Biden, but instead she stuck to policy differences and spoke honestly and pragmatically.

She's a goddamned hero. She shouldn't be a hero, because she's just doing what any decent human should do when elected to represent others, but she's doing it when the vast majority of politicians can't.

Yes, I know she won't sleep with me. That's a tired joke made by sexist assholes. Fortunately, my respect for other humans is not predicated on my perception of sexual value.

So if their guy is a rapist and our guy is a accused rapist, if not at least making constant creepy contact towards women (which Trump has also done), we can go "Well their guy is a rapist and at least with our guy we didn't have to pay hush money to a prostitute!" ? I would have preferred we not nominate the guy with skeletons in his closet, but he's what we're stuck with now.

Maybe it's the Russians. I'm sure they're devoting much time and expense to infiltrate a site like Fark that can barely afford to stay online. Just because Fark might not exist by November doesn't mean Russian bots aren't rampant.

Why wouldn'tthe Russians seek to propagandize the influential and politically relevant user base of Far after all? This is where all the top political minds develop and refine their views,  and then go forth in the world to influence the decision makers and people in power.

So yes, it was definitely the Russians that submitted this headline that caused you so much butthurt because it mocks Granpa Joe, his biatching Trans Am, and his propensity to sniff women.

/there's video of him sniffing girls, you can go watch it
//he's been accused of it by other women too
///they're probably all Russians though
