Once again Trump forces the media to do his bidding, without even trying.
WilyRickWiles comments on Jul 22, 2019:
Let's see... Ilhan Omar arrived in the US as a refugee in 1992. There are unsubstantiated allegations that she married her brother in an implausible immigration fraud scheme. Then there's Melania Trump, who arrived in the US on a visitor visa and proceeded to illegally work for seven weeks before receiving a work visa. https://www.apnews.com/37dc7aef0ce44077930b7436be7bfd0d Moreover, there is a lot of uncertainty about Melania's story. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/02/21/the-huge-questions-about-melania-trumps-immigration-history-nobody-will-answer According to her attorney's statements, she may even have been married before Donald. Who knows, maybe she married HER BROTHER in a fraudulent "chain migration" scheme to bring her parents here! It seems to me that the case for Melania Trump committing immigration fraud is stronger. Shall we send her back?
Yes. Illinois Republicans nailed it

WilyRickWiles comments on Jun 30, 2019:
This looks like PR. Regardless, I don't think the point is to "slow down or control the pace of change." The point is to combat monopoly, monopsony, and the economic and social problems inherently caused by such concentrated power. There are a few natural approaches to take: 1. Undo mergers and break up units (e.g., Youtube, Google Search, G Suite, etc.), 2. Standardize and decentralize platforms (e.g., Facebook, Uber, and Apple's App Store), and 3. Nationalize (e.g., using a social wealth fund) monopsonies like Amazon that can't easily be broken up and have achieved desirable efficiencies.

The article (pasted due to the paywall): America’s new redneck rebellion West Virginians are embracing an anti-corporate populism that can veer left as well as right Edward Luce in Charleston, West Virginia JUNE 26, 2019 When West Virginia’s schoolteachers went on strike last year, the state’s history flared back to life.  The teachers donned red bandanas in honour of the early 20th-century miners who wore the garments in their infamous pitched battles with coal operators. The strikers of the so-called mine wars thus acquired the name “rednecks”. The label meant something very different then than it does today — the red of workers’ blood, rather than poor white prejudice. These days West Virginia is better known for its “deplorables”, an epithet Hillary Clinton ill-advisedly used to describe half of Donald Trump’s supporters in the 2016 campaign. Though Clinton meant the term more generally, West Virginia took it personally, giving Trump his second-largest margin of victory after Wyoming.  There was a time, however, when West Virginia was the most radical state in the union. “We went ‘red’ because we wanted to hearken back to what West Virginia once was,” says Jay O’Neal, a teacher based in the state capital of Charleston, who organised the strike with fellow teacher Emily Comer over chronically low pay and the declining quality of health insurance. The historical origin of the term redneck is often traced to poor white cotton farmers sunburned from working the fields — “po whites”, in the words of black slaves. Nowadays, a redneck is generally taken to be racist. There are still plenty of those. West Virginia’s miner rednecks, though, were a multiracial group.  African-American and Italian immigrant “scabs”, who had been moved in by the coal owners to replace the striking Appalachian miners, were invited to join the illegal United Mine Workers union. They accepted. According to local activists, as the 10,000-strong integrated army marched towards a showdown with the coal owners’ private army, the strikers desegregated whites-only public spaces at gunpoint.  Barring the US civil war, the 1921 battle of Blair Mountain was the largest armed insurrection in American history. Dozens of lives were lost, with private planes even hired to drop bombs on American citizens. It was also a milestone in desegregated labour history. Unlike West Virginia’s teachers, who took nine days to win last year’s strike, West Virginia’s miners lost their battle. They had to wait for the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt 12 years later for the right to organise. A century on, that redneck spirit is stirring again. In 2018, there were more strikes in America than in any year since ...

Is it antithetical for a Libertarian to win an election?
WilyRickWiles comments on Jun 29, 2019:
And we have a two party system. Only way for a third party to win is to displace one of the two. That takes a political movement. And as I preciously commented, there just aren't enough right libertarians. Alternatively, you could push for ranked choice voting so that people aren't throwing their vote away when they vote for a third party. For funsies you might encourage Justin Amash to run for President. Also, they would never be a Democrat because they are economically right-wing. A left libertarian, a.k.a. an anarchist or libertarian socialist could of course be a Democrat, but they are more likely to be involved in efforts for workplace democracy than electoral politics. Bernie's the closest thing to that right now.

The suggested queries about women, on the other hand, strike me as things that feminists would be concerned about and then search for, likewise constituting most searches about women.

Happened in Wisconsin in response to Scott Walker's union busting and it has almost happened recently in other states except the lawmakers got out of dodge before threats could be made. And in this case it sounds like there will be many attempts at persuasion before any force is used. (EDIT: Looks like they're already in Idaho, so I'm guessing the Dems will persue a compromise). What's really a dangerous norm-violation is the response by vigilantes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorum#Call_of_the_house https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorum#Quorum-busting In Oregon, here are the laws governing this process: From the Oregon constitution: "If a quorum is present, the Senate shall proceed with the transaction of business. When there is no quorum present, a lesser number of members may adjourn from day to day and compel the attendance of absent members." From ORS 181.050: "The state police, with the approval of the Governor, may be called upon by any other branch or department of the state government to enforce criminal laws or any regulation of such branch or department."

WilyRickWiles comments on Jun 17, 2019:
A principled leftist would challenge the tariffs not because tariffs are inherently bad, but because Trump's justification is incoherent. Trump justifies tariffs not with concerns about labor standards but with his lifelong mantra that "the rest of the world is taking advantage of us," referring to the trade deficit. And he's even willing to overlook that as long as he can put on a show for his supporters for a while and ultimately put his name on a barely renegotiated agreement. Never mind that the trade deficit exists because the dollar is the world's reserve currency. The solution, which is actually a pretty nice privilege, is to run a budget deficit and increase the money supply--and from a leftist perspective, seek treaties on labor standards--not tariffs and inevitable trade wars which are likely to be contractionary.

Those factors mean the difference between science denialism and scientism.

For example, in recent decades, US politics has generally been confined to a line between left liberalism and right liberalism whereas European politics has generally been confined to a line between social democracy and what in the US would be the neoliberal center. With the advent of Trump and Bernie, the American political spectrum is expanding in both directions. If you were to ask a rightist, they'd probably say that today's line runs between Stalinism and right libertarianism but should be confined between Trumpism and anarcho-capitalism. A leftist on the other hand would acknowledge that most politics occurs between left liberalism and Trumpism, but that they are trying to expand its leftmost point to social democracy and maybe someday democratic socialism. So where would you draw the line?
If the "Left" labels anyone who's right-of-"Left" a member of the "far right", what could do wrong?

WilyRickWiles comments on Jun 5, 2019:
I'll take the class politics of the professional class 1% any day over the culture war of the aristocratic 0.01%. But I'd still much prefer a left politics of the 99% working class.
Anyone want to wager how long it takes for YouTube to cave to the woke scolds at Vox?

On the topic of Free Speech, shouting "FIRE!" in a crowded theater?
WilyRickWiles comments on Jun 5, 2019:
It's worth noting that the legal decision that popularized the phrase in question was not concerned with "shouting fire in a crowded theater," but rather claimed that a socialist distributing flyers against US involvement in WWI was as dangerous as "shouting fire in a crowded theater," which surely wouldn't be protected by the 1st Amendment, therefore it could be prosecuted under the Espionage Act. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schenck_v._United_States

Or perhaps we live in a society where culture warriors lecture us on freedom.

WilyRickWiles comments on May 31, 2019:
It strikes me as an empty, corporate feminist slogan. It doesn't hurt me and I'm not going to lower myself to read pedantic meanings into it or equate it to intentionally inflammatory misogynistic slogans. If I encountered a woman wearing the shirt, I'd assume that they were a well-meaning feminist without much of a class consciousness.
I wonder how many walls we could've built with the tax payers money, if we didn't spend it on all on...
