    Survivor 40: Winners at War

    The whole token economy thing is interesting in its own way -- in that alliances who lose a member can give some power back to their alliance. Does it prevent Pagonging? It's a good cast. As tired as I am of seeing some of them the premise wouldn't make sense without them there.

    US Politics: Money, Money, Money Makes the World Go Round

    Here's some background on how they campaigned for the Latino vote.

    US Politics: Money, Money, Money Makes the World Go Round

    It's a movement for progressive legislation and progressive representatives. It's not about Sanders alone. Bernie himself will probably do exactly what he promised to regarding mass pressure of politicians to enact M4A and Green New Deal and getting oligarch and corporate money out of politics. He wouldn't have the bully pulpit of being president, but this is genuinely a movement. If you think its done if he loses, you just don't understand the times at all. Women's Suffrage got it in 7 years via mass movement. Civil Rights Act, mass movement. Abolition of slavery, mass movement. Through all those times there were "moderates" who said it couldn't be done. There's zero percent chance the movement goes away.

    Bloomberg's effect on the down ballot races is going to be devastating, since he is sucking up all the staff, as well as telling other donors to sit this cycle out.

    From exit polls, Bernie won a plurality with self-described moderates (23% -- more than any single moderate candidate) and conservative Democrats. Perhaps some moderates and conservatives prefer a movement-funded socialist over anyone corporate-funded. People are sick of money buying legislation to order.

    The "better Trump than Bernie" faction is probably mostly the lobbyists and consultants that suck up a few billion dollars every cycle and lose elections. Some of them are actually get selected as delegates from each campaign. If the party shifts to rejecting corporate cash, they're all unemployed. If it is a contested convention those set will likely try to take it from Sanders, while I have some faith the party leaders from the State delegations might see how that would destroy the party.

    Actually Chris Matthews was just speculating the Dem establishment would rather lose to Trump than win with Sanders.

    You're right, he won't stop tweeting after getting kicked out of the White House. That IS going to be pretty awesome.

    I remember back in 2016 there was an article at the start of the whole Bernie Bro myth that tracked one down who used violent rhetoric and called him up. Turns out he was a Trump supporter in Arizona. He was freaked out someone called him up and apologized profusely and hung up quickly. He certainly wasn't the only Trumpist doing that. The article disappeared the second time I went to look for it a day or so later.

    They should use that party game Mafia instead. Guess which delegate is the secret informant responsible for snitching on the Godfather to the FBI.
  12. I thought the Village Square would be much bigger, with a field, you know Emond's Field? Perrin has to fit an army there to defend from Trollocs. How To Tell Iff You (or Someone You Know) Is A Darkfriend?

  15. It goes back to the very beginning of Sanders' campaign, where the Latino people he engaged with were given authority, a budget, and actually wrote the policies affecting them that his campaign is producing. As Chuck Rocha said, "We didn't only have a seat at the table, we ran the meeting!" Looks like it was very effective. They stole a march on all the other campaigns a year ago, and none of them ever noticed. By the way, "Latinx" is just a white people thing. I believe that community still uses "Latino".
