Gabbard considering boycott of ohio debate: the fix is in

" the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again"

"They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten."

Robert Reich: a presidential candidate has to be inspiring

"Big ideas are essential in order to be electable."

"today the real contest is between the people and the powerful – the vast majority of Americans versus an oligarchy"

"The way it was before Trump brought us Trump"

"looking forward to what America should be rather than backward to an America that was never as good as it could be."

Holy shit: Bernie doubles down

"corporations with at least $100 million in annual revenue, corporations with at least $100 million in balance sheet total, and all publicly traded companies will be required to provide at least 2 percent of stock to their workers every year until the company is at least 20 percent owned by employees."

"45 percent of the board of directors in any large corporation with at least $100 million in annual revenue, corporations with at least $100 million in balance sheet total, and all publicly traded companies will be directly elected by the firm’s workers"

"U.S. corporations with more than $100 million in annual revenue, corporations with at least $100 million in balance sheet total, and all publicly traded companies must obtain a federal charter from a newly established Bureau of Corporate Governance at the Department of Commerce. This new federal charter will require corporate boards to consider the interests of all of the stakeholders in a company – including workers, customers, shareholders, and the communities in which the corporation operates."

"large-scale stock buybacks will be treated like stock manipulation, just as they were before 1982"

"the owners of firms that dispose of American labor to take advantage of robots or cheap labor overseas will be required to share the gains that they make through such practices with those whom these practices harm. "

"Under this plan, a $500 million U.S. Employee Ownership Bank will be created to provide low-interest loans, loan guarantees, and technical assistance to workers who want to purchase their own businesses"

"workers will be given the right to buy a company when it goes up for sale, is closing, or if a factory is moving overseas "

"Ban asset managers voting on other people’s money, unless they are following instructions"

"Guarantee the right of every saver to elect representatives who set voting policy in corporations, in multi-employer pensions, single-employer pensions, in 401(k) funds, and every other form."

"Have the FTC conduct a thorough review of all mergers and acquisitions since Trump took office and undo those that have created highly concentrated markets, demonstrably caused harm to workers, raised prices, or reduced competition."

" the FTC will break up corporations that have accumulated dominant market share and are able to wield their market power in anti-competitive ways."

"Ban mandatory arbitration clauses.
Ban non-compete clauses.
Ban unilateral modification clauses.
Ban clauses that deny farmers and consumers the right to repair the equipment and technology they purchase."

"Bernie will raise up to $3 trillion over 10 years by repealing all of the disastrous corporate tax breaks enacted under Trump, closing corporate tax loopholes, and demanding that large corporations pay their fair share of taxes."

"corporate tax rate to 35 percent "

" same tax rate on offshore and domestic income and applying a per-country limit on the foreign tax credit."

"If this plan had been in effect last year, instead of paying nothing in federal income taxes:

    Amazon would have paid up to $3.8 billion in taxes.
    Delta would have paid up to $1.8 billion in taxes.
    Chevron would have paid up to $1.6 billion in taxes.
    GM would have paid up to $1.5 billion in taxes."

Maybe the heart attack will encourage him take the gloves off and denounce the corruption in the Democratic Party (it helped Trump massively to win the GOP primary last time). Because if it comes to a second round, they will cheat him out of the candidacy again. And the herd will follow regardless.

What is the employees do want to keep the company stock?  Will they be forced to?  Sounds like more bureaucracy to me.

Oh, Bernie's gone hard to the left. In speeches. Ok. That sort of talk would even here be considered pretty extreme left. So
* AOC - Social Democrat in Europe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centre-left_politics
* Bernie a hard line Socialist
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-wing_politics and not very far from a
* real Commie.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far-left_politics

Yes, there are differences between them.

Anyway nice to get some info outside the media corp.

Democrats are indeed (Mostly) an odd amalgamation of soft right-wingers and very soft left-centrists leading to mixed messaging. At least it looks like that from this perspective. (leftie or greenish Finland)

How idiotic and wasteful can it possibly get? Well, this sure looks like late-stage capitalism.

Only one of many reasons why there shouldn't be billionaires in the first place...
