    Absolutely, but those who are intent on leading the Democratic Party into the abyss aren't really liberals.
    The liberals need to worry more about their "own" than they do Trump who is a centrist in comparison.

    For the foreseeable future, I insist on working in Python on a regular basis. I won't accept interviews and once hired, I won't stay if Python is not a substantial part of my work.

    I am not hard core technical like I used to be. I spend my time doing either PM, o365, or security/compliance these days. It pays nice though

    I think its absurd to assume that supporters of Sanders are sexist. There are plenty of rational reasons for a progressive to prefer Sanders to Warren.
    But I do think that there was a subtext of sexism that was underscored in 2016 with respect to Hillary's image in the press. When she was labeled as 'cold' 'unfeeling', 'calculating, humorless, or 'unlikeable' I do wonder if voters demanded that she show them something softer, gentler and more appealing , that a male candidate need not. to win over many of the same voters.

    But I think agism is even more pervasive in the American public.

    If your beliefs cause you to not know whether men or women get pregnant, you're insane.
    Julian Castro knows those who transition to women would have no need for abortions. He was talking about their medical access. He flubbed his answer. The difference between you and me is that I am not a Castro cultist the way many on your side are Trump cultists. And I know you will continue to ignore the comment about Trump thinking wind mills cause cancer.

He makes an excellent point when he states: 'So since Warren is Christian and Sanders is Jewish, if I pick Warren does that make me anti-semitic?'






    Now, are there 'Bernie Bros' who are insufferable? Of course. Are there Bernie supporters who actually are sexist? Wouldn't doubt it. But to say one has to be sexist to pick Sanders before Warren is complete bull****. It's many of these clowns on the Left (SJWs, PC Police, whatever you want to call them) who help reinforce stereotypes conservatives have on normal rational-thinking liberals.


    Btw Folks on the Right, if you think Pakman is the liberal exception to the rule on his criticism of the SJWs then read the comments section of the Youtube video.

    What is unsustainable is capitalism without check.

    That's lovely. Pointless, but lovely. Seeing as we don't have that, your point is... what again?

    We have the closest thing to capitalism amongst large developed nations. As a result, we get a broken healthcare system and a huge wealth gap. If we were to get rid of the regulations we do have then it would only get worse because the capitalist system only cares about profit.

    Sanders and Warren advocate programs similar to what the happiest countries in the world have.
