Lady was telling me of her daughter graduated from college. The daughter claimed she didn't work this hard in college. And felt the car payments, student loan debt was unfair. The lady, told her daughter, "welcome to the real world".
If you're a "liberal", you SHOULD be willing to hear both sides of the story and then hopefully make an INTELLIGENT decision based on facts and not merely internet news or what someone else told you.
Well thought out and well written article.
Frankly, I would LIKE to be a Democrat in what used to be the traditional sense.
For individual rights
Standing up for the American worker rights
Justice for all
But since the election of President Trump it seems to me that the party is driven by haters. People who stereotype, and are focused on causes that drive middle of the road Americans away.
It’s time for common sense and civilized Democrates to re-take the party.
Thought Mooch's 15 minutes were up months ago.
Liberals love free speech as long as it agrees with their ideology. Liberals love the freedom to assemble as long as it is only liberal groups that are assembling. Liberals love capitalist money as long as they can tax it to fund their socialist causes. Liberals love minority success stories as long as it is not a conservative like Ben Carson or Herman Cain that’s successful. Liberals always support women as long as it’s Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren and not Condoleezza Rice or Carly Fiorina. Liberals love diversity except for the diversity of political views and opinions. Basically, liberals love their speech, their assemblies, their chosen people who hold their liberal opinions and their money and are completely intolerant of everybody else.
Colleges and Universities need to grow a spine. If they don't stand for freedom of expression and intellectual debate and acceptance, what in the world are they doing trying to educate our children? They are failing them by giving in to one loud, strident side.
As a liberal Democrat, I totally agree with this article. Just because I don't subscribe to someone's world veiw doesn't necessarily mean that person hasn't given it tremendous thought and analysis. The Dems should practice what they preach--tolerance for ALL.
President Trump may very well turn out to be one of the greatest American Presidents of all time.
Now, I’m no attorney, but even with a passing knowledge of libel law, I can tell you that you it’s all but impossible to damage a reputation that’s already been publicly pilloried. Trying to defame Scaramucci’s honor would be like plotting to sink the Titanic in 1913. But anyway."
Note: prior "public pilloring" is not a defense to libel.
This is far and away the best and most honest piece of journalism I have ever read by you Mr. Bai. Very well done. While everything you wrote is true Mr. Bai, I do think you stopped short. The last issue to be raised with respect to the left's attempts to silence those who disagree, is that this approach is the stock and trade of tyrants. Lovers of a free society welcome opposing views, and the opportunity to see which views will triumph in the arena of ideas. Tyrants fear competing points of view and attempt silence and destroy them.
Really have to psych myself up to read a Matt Bai article....
Jobs Not Mobs
does the left have a platform yet or are they still going with "trump bad - vote for us"?
