Weekend Open Thread

  1. Sen Michael Bennet has a progressive primary challenger.Finally someone willing to stand up to the right wing fascist record of Bennet and his corporate corruption. I will never vote for Bennet again.

    Karen Breslin is running as a progressive and will get my support at the dem caucus so we can get her on the primary ballot against bank owned property like Bennet. It’s a long shot but our best hope.
    At least I will be able to vote for a progressive democrat in the primary. I was planning on not voting at all for senate or house in the general election as dems sold us out to republican fascism. If Breslin doesn’t win I won’t be voting for Bennet. I will vote 3rd party or not at all. I stand to fight the fascism of corp dems and republican tyranny.

    1. We got your message, “Denise” — Bennett bad, Breslin good.

      Now, anyone else you’re getting paid to post for (or against), . . .

      . . . so we can know the others to avoid (or select)?

    2. Minor and 3rd party candidates, if they have sufficient public support, can push the mainstream candidates into further left (or further right, on the GOP side) policies.

      This is what happened with Sanders and Clinton in 2016. Hillary Clinton didn’t support free college tuition until Bernie Sanders started pulling in gigantic crowds.

      So that’s the rationale, as a progressive Democrat, that I use when choosing to vote for the progressive underdog in primaries. People who follow me on here know I’m not a big Bennet booster, although he has improved as a speaker, at least, with time. His background is as a financial whiz kid and dealmaker, and that’s how he votes most of the time.

      But that’s really not the vibe I get from your posts. No specific policy or voting info at all – just catchphrases.  You truly seem like a troll, paid to dampen Democratic enthusiasm and turnout. I got lots of social media posts from folks like you in 2016, increasingly more virulent as the election got closer. They didn’t tout their candidate’s virtues or policies – they only spouted catchphrases like yours: “corp dems”, etc. And your push to “vote 3rd party or not at all” does sound like a formula for a Hanks victory.

      If I’m wrong about you being a troll, tell us why Breslin’s policies are wonderful, and why Bennet should adopt a specific policy, instead of exhorting us to commit political seppuku.

      1. Nothing wrong with rooting for progressive dems in primaries.  But in the general, Vote Blue, no matter who, as Duke says.  But "Denise" shows up for the first time and bombards us with Never vote Democrat" messages.  Yes, "she" is a shill, a paid disruptor.  In the unlikely event Breslin won the primary, "Denise" would goad moderate Democrats to stay home.  She is paid to help far right Republicans by depressing Democrat turnout. 


    3. Well, the strategy of not supporting Bennet and giving Mitch McConnell a better chance of becoming Senate Majority Leader again, and simultaneously fighting against Republican tyranny, appeals to me!

          1. yes

            Actually, I doubt "Denise" is female.  The DEN is just Bannon's code for his Colorado shill.

            And Denise Spencer

            Trump influencer.

  2. Framing:

    "insurrectionists". They were REPUBLICANS!
    REPUBLICANS attempted a coup. 
    REPUBLICANS attacked and brutalized the Capitol Police.
    REPUBLICANS urinated and smeared feces in the halls of Congress. 
    REPUBLICANS (147 of them) voted to overturn the Constitution.

    1. It will be anticlimactic in its obviousness . . .

      An American President Attempts to Overturn Election Results. He Receives Widespread Support From, and is Largely Abetted in His Efforts by, One of the Major Political Parties. And, all the (ongoing) Aftermaths.

  3. I am confused. I thought the Commies in charge of Colorado state government were destroying the oil & gas industry.

    "Stronger oil prices and oil and gas production growth planned in northeast Colorado has the region’s biggest natural gas and liquids processing company considering dusting off plans for a major new plant.

    DCP Midstream  is handling growing volumes of natural gas and liquids from northeastern Colorado’s Denver-Julesburg Basin, prompting the Denver-based company to invest some in near-term infrastructure expansion this year while looking at reviving plans to build a new processing plant in Weld County if the growth trends continue, the company’s executives say."
