2. We cannot afford to to settle, corporate candidates are killing this nation, democracy is no more.

It's time for everyone to realize everything is being delivered to the oligarchy by design, deliberately.

5. It would be good, except for the gratuitous attacks on socialism.

 

Straw men and red herrings abound.

6. I didn't see it as attacks on socialism, it was sarcasm...we can't have that...because TPTB give us

the same BS line ad nauseum...garbage talking points the likes of Fox & Friends...I don't add to that backward way of thinking AT ALL.

Give it another listen, immoderate...with new ears.

7. Ah, I was thinking in the context of what effect it would have on my Libertarian friends.

 

If I sent it to them they would seize on this, I know. I've played this before. If I bring up "wealth inequality," I must then argue through the notion that I am advocating "wealth equality," and how unrealistic, blah, blah.

He may be being sarcastic, but implying that the goal of socialism is result oriented, is the same nonsense the Libertarians literally believe. He could have pointed out that socialism is more likely to deliver the "ideal" distribution he acclaims.

With such great graphics and production, I expect a higher level of tongue-in-cheekiness. It's OK for me, though.

8. Seriously, some people will never "get" the big picture. It's a matter of empathy, if you aren't

wired that way, you are oblivious imho. Unless someone can see the hurt or damage to someone they love because of what's playing out, they may never have the wherewithal to truly "see".
