    Schultz isn't dragging anybody anywhere. His approval from all ends of the political spectrum is about 13%.

    Oh... but the press he’s receiving, and the desperate pleas from the press.

    Wonderful stuff.

    If he gets 5%... ok with me.

    If he runs... ok with me.

    When Democrats create bills that read like they're straight out of The Communist Manifesto, there's no option but to call it what it is: a communist conspiracy.

This is how things work in america. We could have had electric cars years and years ago but we don't. Why? Because those with more money than the folks creating the electric vehicles didn't want the status quo upset. Too many things are done for the monied interests and not enough for the american people. There is no reason on earth we cannot be heading towards clean renewable sources of energy. Correction, one reason, those with the big dollars don't want the status quo upset. The usual reason.
    The most liberal state of California is killing it's dream of a high-speed rail. Hate to bring you back to reality.

    Big news from California: Gov. Gavin Newsom, in his first State of the State speech, has said he is ending the state’s hugely expensive and hopelessly quixotic high-speed rail line. According to the San Francisco Chronicle website, Newsom said the high-speed rail, a project beloved of the just-retired four-term Gov. Jerry Brown, “would cost too much and take too long.”

    Cost too much: an estimated $77 billion, far above the cost pitched to voters when the project was approved 52 to 48 percent in 2008. Take too long: its first phase had an estimated completion date of 2033, some 14 years from now.

    I have written numerous times about this egregious folly. Brown seemed to think that high-speed rail was cutting-edge technology. Actually, the first high-speed rail line, Japan’s Shinkansen, was opened in 1964, 55 years ago and 69 years before the California high-speed rail’s latest estimated completion date

    New California governor kills high-speed rail boondoggle

    And your point? Whatever, let me make a counterpoint. If it was a republican project and a new governor came in and thought it was a waste of money, they would go through with it anyway. The dems at least have the gonads to say, this is a waste of money and is going to be shortened for the moment. It's called not being so rigid one can't or won't change.

    If you had something to say you'd be dangerous

    "Green New Deal,"

    But you don't have the gonads to say the Green New Deal is a waste of money

    Howard Schultz is a conservative posing as a centrist, so why should Dems assign any weight to his opinion?

    Schultz doesn't believe in Medicare for all, which seems to work just fine in other first world countries. He also doesn't believe in high marginal tax rates, which was the staple from 1933-1980. Imagine, a billionaire who doesn't believe in high marginal tax rates? Schultz is all into cutting Social Security, but opposes any tax hike on the wealthy.

    I love how zimmer paints Dems as radical, when Radical leftists are virtually nonexistent in American politics.

    The coffee billionaire, turns out to have an approval rating of 4%, versus 40% disapproval. So, why should Dems think he's relevant?

    Howard Schultz is an idiot, and another mouth piece for people who don't think owning 10 million dollars is good enough for them.

    In short, I really don't care what Howard Schultz thinks.
    "The question is whether privileged elites should dominate mass-communication and should use this power, as they tell us they must [to] manipulate and deceive the 'stupid majority', and remove them from the public arena. The question, in brief, is whether Democracy and Freedom are values to be preserved or threats to be avoided." --Chomsky
