Well, “say stupid shit” IS a way to make yourself stand out in a crowded primary.

My wife's take on hearing about this: "Well, that's a novel way to go after the wealthy."

Yeah, but a fine on the wealthy is one they can easily pay, whereas the poor are left to have to send their children into further wars.

I like it from a perspective of "this will make war way more unpopular among the masses."

That being said, if we made health care available to everyone who needed it, we wouldn't need a VA anymore soooo....

Except the masses do not get a say in what wars are started. That's the politicians being paid by the defense contractors and weapon manufacturing lobbyists.

I guess it was a place of naïveté of assuming that people who are mad about a dumb war would vote accordingly.

The first debate is about to start. Remember: take a drink when Warren says she has a plan for that. One drink when you don't remember who this person is. Finish your drink when they ignore the question to slam dunk on Trump.

Warren is at least wrapping it up when they call time. Granted shes got plenty of time otherwise but still, it's nice.

Tim Ryan looks like he wondered on stage by accident but I'm picking up what he's putting down.

Ok, livetweet mode over.

Initial post debate thought mode engage!

Julian Castro needs to be getting every minute of coverage that is being spent on Beto and Mayor Pete. He went wayyy up in my book after this.

Warren and Castro walked away from this looking good. A few others like Booker and Gabbard had moments. Everyone else can drop out now.

Finally watching part 2: first blood

Joe Biden does not know who this mouthy broad is but he has half a mind to go have words with her husband.

Dear Bernie and Joe, It's not ageism. It's not discrimination. It's your generation has done enough damage, so get the fuck out of the way.

I don't know about damage. It's more "You had your time, please stop trying to direct and let those in a better position take charge and fix what you already know is broken."

White guy boomers? I'll stick with damage. It's time to shove them off the stage if they won't go quietly.
