Amy Klobuchar joined Chris Matthews after the debate to slam Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren with Republican talking points on free stuff and socialism. Amy tried to temper the attack with midwestern charm but showed she like most centrist politicians are there to protect the plutocracy no ensure the best outcomes for their constituencies.

The condescension was palpable. Amy Klobuchar showed that in fact, she sees the ruling class as one to program the activities of the working class. In other words, the masters determine what the economy looks like and we create schools to feed the desires of the masters.

"We should be matching our education system with the jobs in our economy," Amy Klobuchar said. "And to me, that means, no, you just don't make everything free. And you don't pay for free college for rich kids. Look at this, the fastest-growing degrees are one and two years. We do not have a shortage of CEOs or MBAs. We have a shortage of plumbers"

Many will view that statement and believes it makes sense in our supposedly free-market system. It is true in the master/slave true behavior of the capitalist system. If we are supposed to believe in a smart market where supply and demand reign, then if there is an oversupply of CEOs and MBAs then their salaries would fall and if there is an undersupply of plumbers, then their salaries would skyrocket.

The reality is that our economy is a cartel just like OPEC where prices are controlled by those who conquered pricing power.

Progressives do not want to laden Americans with free stuff. We want to enlighten them about our economic fraud and empower them to be equal participants as we create a real meritocracy as opposed to one where you must be chosen for entry if even cloaked in the false nonexistent freedom to succeed without haven been chosen.

Can't stand her!

She had the highest staff turnover rate of any Senator for many years.

She is a horrible human being who treats her staff horribly and wants to bring her horrible personality to the WH. She would out turnover trump.

She needs to stay in MN and freeze.

@911Truth,


What you say makes sense. Her "cutesy - wootsy" comment last night that she raised $17,000 in campaign contributions from ex-boyfriends shows that she is a manipulator/charmer. That comment rang like a bell in last night's debate.

We need to fight the centrist propaganda at a grass roots level by electing House and Senate candidates who represent the interest of everyday citizens. Focusing on the presidential race is a distraction. Remember . . .

The President can't impeach Congress.

Congress can impeach the President.

Congress passes the laws.

Congress can force the President to enforce the laws.

A veto-proof Congress can pass any law, even ones countering regulatory abuses by the President.

So where does the power lie, folks?

CFAR 2018

The DNC will sabotage the presidential nomination and if Trump doesn't choke on a hamburger and die, all this hand-wringing about Bernie, Elizabeth, and Tulsi will be a waste of time. Even my cat understands this.

So why aren't we focusing on the real seat of power, one where we can make a difference? THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH, aka the House and Senate.

Oh ... I know why: Because this charade is intended to keep us distracted and our g-strings tangled and up our butts so we don't actually do something to change the balance of power.

Never mind ... I need to pet my cat.

From little heard last night in DNC debate, its a wonder my cell phone did not destroy itself and the TV. Them going saying we need to put more pressure on Russia and China are proof our leaders are going in wrong direction. The world needs the screws loosened on this boiling melting pot.
