“Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” -- Alexis de Tocqueville

Strategists catching the vapors

And while the White House isn't yet facing reality, Democratic strategists are telling it like it is...

But Democratic critics of the campaign’s approach — while agreeing that abortion should be a winning issue — said they’re challenged when pressed by friends to make the case for why Biden will win.

There’s still a path to win this, but they don’t look like a campaign that’s embarking on that path right now,” said Pete Giangreco, a longtime Democratic strategist who’s worked on multiple presidential campaigns. “If the frame of this race is, ‘What was better, the 3.5 years under Biden or four years under Trump,’ we lose that every day of the week and twice on Sunday.” -Politico

And then we have this suspected offworlder, former Clinton strategist James Carville, who says Democrat messaging is full of shit

Claire's observations;  Frighteningly bad domestic and international policies have absolutely screwed the American people, under Biden's watch.  And now they're asking for "loyalty to Ukraine" to potentially draft Americans to fight and die for Ukraine in a war for which NONE of the American people ever voted?!?  This, folks, is hubris writ large.  

Then, there is the Israeli genocide in Gaza; please don't be surprised if there are MORE US "boots on the ground in Israel" than we have there already; (One facility is finished; the other is under construction)

Karl Marx got one hell of a lot of stuff wrong, but the one thing he said that makes perfect sense, is that all wars are economic in their origin.  And young, draft-age people get this; they understand it.  And this is why a an attempted "forced registration for the draft", which is being considered right now in this country, will go absolutely nowhere.

  And inflation?!?  Please don't get me started!!!!!  I am very lucky, that along the way, I learned to "slow cook", because I realized it was probably was going to be a key survival skill when things got tough. Unfortunately,  I was entirely  right on that!!

President Trump was back in court on Tuesday morning for closing arguments in Alvin Bragg’s ‘hush money’ show trial in New York City.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted Trump in April 2023 on 34 felony counts related to ‘hush payments’ he made to Stormy Daniels.

Trump was accused of paying porn star Stormy Daniels, AKA, Stephanie Clifford, ‘hush payments’ through his then-attorney Michael Cohen in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer.

Alvin Bragg didn’t explain what exactly he wanted to convict Trump of in the charging documents. Bragg still has not clearly stated the predicate crimes. But it doesn’t matter. The court is ready to find Trump guilty and send him to prison.

Judge Merchan made it easier for the jury to convict Trump when he sided with Bragg’s prosecutors and ruled the jury does NOT need to unanimously agree on the “predicate” crime Trump committed.
