    Too late, Trump now has the opportunity to centralise and embrace some amount of welfare socialism.
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nationís political system.

    It's amazing that conservatives are okay with all this. It's not just the bailouts and stimulus programs, but the sheer government overreach in all this. First the government had central control of the markets, now they have complete central control of private companies.

    Why is it amazing that there is a big difference between the talk and the reality?

    You'd also think the progressives would be loving all this socialism and free money. You'd think they'd be praising Trump. Both sides are hypocrites, which is why the partisan trench warfare charade is so obnoxious.

    That's too harsh. Both sides are tribal, because it is human to be tribal.

    Trump is one of those rare people that can redefine the tribal lines. The recession will probably last until the election, and he has the opportunity to centralise and embrace UBI and other welfare.

    Pelosi is blocking the EmergencyUBI in favor of means-testing. Are you kidding me?




    Separately, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) supports a more targeted approach to those hit hardest by any economic downturn, as opposed to money sent to every American, and Pelosi wants this done via refundable tax credits, expanded unemployment and possibly direct cash payments as well.

    Trump supports UBI, and Pelosi wants means testing? It's too good

    Suddenly, both parties want to send cash to every American. It might happen.

    With the country staring at the possibility of an absolutely brutal recession amid the worsening coronavirus crisis, both Democrats and Republicans seem to be gravitating toward what used to be considered a fairly out-of-the-mainstream progressive solution: Just send people money.

    I haven't seen any progressives against it. Are you suggesting some are?

    If you mean Schumer and Pelosi, then no, neoliberal corporatist centrist shills don't count as progressives.

    You'd think they'd be praising Trump.
    Given the man's not competent to tie his own shoelaces or tell the truth ever, I will believe he's actually doing something useful only if and when I see it. Him talking about doing something good doesn't count.

    Pelosi is a centrist corporatist sell-out who needs to be primaried by a progressive. Nothing new there. The only thing interesting is that some people were silly enough to expect her to not be a useless tool and to actually support some progressive values.

    Conservatives aren't anarchists.

    Conservatism = laissez faire capitalism was always neocon poison and it cannot die fast enough anyway.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
