Republicans will sell federal lands to their cronies for oil drilling and shitty condos. Fuck you if you’re not the top 1%. The rest can live in the plebelands and favellas and watch them helicopter to work as if we’re in São Paulo.

The Democrats envision America as a vast “green” DMV, where the useless are assured generous public employment.

Bernie wants you to be Denmark, which is happier, healthier and wealthier in all metrics.

The blue states have the greatest income inequality. It's all peasants and lords with them. The liberals want more peasants.

If you have time to give a shit about the less fortunate, you're not working hard enough.

Compared to what state?

Alabama, Mississippi, Lousiana, etc.?  

There are prosperous red states, and the reason why they are wealthy is because they have big cities like Austin and Atlanta that are filled with educated liberals. 

It's the baggers who live in ignorance and poverty and expect Trump to give them gimmedats.

Why shouldn't we provide universal generous public employment? 

We're technologically approaching a near post scarcity state in the west. This isn't the fucking 19th century. We can easily afford to give every citizen a modest standard of living. If it makes wanna-be Frontier types feel better to make the plebes do some probably useless task for 20 or 30 hours a week in order to qualify, fine, whatever. It would solve the unskilled labor shortage. 

Take homelessness for instance? How much would it cost to be build 50 million units worth of prefab houses with basic utilities and wifi? Even at 50k a pop, that's only 2.5 trillion. That's two years worth of deficit spending at our current level. It's not a drop in the bucket, but it's a manageable amount. You'd solve the homelessness crisis and make life easier for millions of working class and lower middle class people too.

Then why did he spend his honeymoon in the Soviet Union instead of Denmark?
