    What ever kind of chin he has, he needs to put it on record. Let his constituents know that they canít have living wages.

    I find it hard to believe that his constituents are against living wages.

    Now if he loses his donors and canít afford to run against the republicans..., hopefully his constituents will remember that he fought hard for living wages...

    With these corporate moderates, losing our majority is something that is going to happen sooner or later.

    When things return to Ďnormalí, establishment will prefer corporate extremists rather than moderates...

    I didn't say that either. The people aren't romans but the culture and politics of western society are.

    and attributed all the negative stuffs to Jesus.
    My negativity towards religion runs deeply but I didn't attribute the 'negative stuffs' to religion. Western society is the root cause of many of the world's negatives (it's almost as if negative acts are inherent in the system) and your beloved religion is used by it as an excuse. Religious leaders do not do anything to prevent this from happening, so they are fully complicit in the wrongs of the world.

    As if bullies need crutches to act aggressively.
    Bullies will do anything underhanded to justify their acts.

    Who follows anything that Romans do nowadays?
    Almost everyone. We haven't really learned much.

    USA and CCP will also be things of the past soon as well... bullies donít last...
    Again, we haven't learned much, and another bully will rise out of the ashes of the current one.

    What is Godly or lovely shall last forever!
    It will as long as there are bullies for it to leech off, and for them to use as a crutch.

    Like I said, only way corporate moderates could win is when republicans royally fucked it up.

    Iíll give Obama more credit though. At least the pretended to be the more progressive candidate when he ran against Hillary.

    He really shouldíve stuck to his word and stayed in the senate and allowed Hillary to win the WH. After 8 years of that, Obama wouldíve been a better candidate against Trump.

    Anyway, If this $15 min wage thing is passed, itíll be credited to Bernie. Heís fought for it way harder than Biden. Letís see if Bernie could do it later.

    Can you share with me the benefit of being a corporate moderate? Why canít we have living wage? What nuance is there that I missed? Should democrats really answer to corporations or to the people?

    Lastly, did Biden negotiated with manly dude for a $14, $13 min wage? Wouldnít that be the more pragmatic thing to do? Rather than just give up because of parliamentarian? Why didnít he give up when Iranians attacked?

    Bottomline is Biden doesnít truly believe in living wage.

    Like I said.

    Look at you being like Trump and trying to undermine people you don't like by giving them a nickname. Go mini Trump!

    Wait, I did say the far hard left and the fat right are similar at one point didn't I? Horseshoe theory and all that. Thanks for proving it.

    Jesus christ - If you're counting billi as far hard left then I don't have the slightest idea where I'd fall in your conception. As far as I can tell, he's just a flailingly confused and inconsistent populist.

    To be fair, he did captured the nuance that I'm not just hard left(who like Bernie Sanders), but also hard right(mini trump)! Neanderthal, to give Bernie and Trump some credit, they were the only 2 willing to give Americans $2000 chks. Both establishment on either right or left were more pragmatic about it and only willing to hand out $600 or $1400. So can you really blame Bernie and Trump supporters? Also, why are you so loyal to your pragmatic politicians who think of the corporations 1st and thought of you last?

    I seriously have no problems with either the right or left as long as they conduct themselves in justly.

    Is that really confusion? Aren't most people both pro-life AND pro-choice? Both choosing embryos or choosing masks or vaccines are pro-life, no? Choosing no baby, no vaccines, no masks are pro-choice, no? People switch sides when it's politically convenient for them. However, the reality is that people are both pro-life and pro-choice. Except whenever we choose, we should choose so justly, not only for selfish reasons. Think of others as well. If we're all that responsible, it'll be impossible to stay only on one side all the time on all issues...

    It's also very clear to me that both capitalism and socialism could very well co-exist together. We need capital to grow our way up and we need to be social and helpful to one another during our way down. The two are not in conflict with one another. Nobody likes to see capitalists not pay fair wages and destroy whatever in its path, also nobody likes to see socialists destroy wealth and its entire culture such as culture revolution in china... as long as we do things justly, anything can be made to work well. Even dictatorship can work well if we have a just dictator!

    So I actually would consider myself as people moderate, not a corporate moderate. I'm for living wages and I'm also for capitalism. I'm also both for BLM and the cops! There are definitely black thugs and bad cops. They are the problem. Not the entire black population nor the entire police department. We can't solve our problems by erasing black people nor erasing cops. Even Billi realizes the nuance in such situation. If we all act justly, we can live in the world of Winnie the Pooh.

    Lastly to address RWA, your negativity towards religion is understandable, but your negativity toward Winnie the Pooh makes no sense.

    I'm also not promoting people to just be 'religious'. That'd be the same as just being politically correct on the surface, but refuse to actually do what is correct. To be a follower of Jesus is not about being religiously correct, but to actually do the right things. When people do the wrong things in the name of Jesus, Jesus should not be blamed for that.

    But of course in the real world, Jesus was blamed 2021 years ago and nailed on the cross.

    But no worries, no matter what bullies do, Jesus will win. Such is the power of love! Bullies seduced by the power of the dark side will not be able to overcome it!
