    The most successful businesses thrive on planning, regulation and safety. All by products of unions.

    That's the conundrum we're now facing.

    There are plenty of good paying jobs if people are willing and able to move, but not everyone is willing or able to move.

    Good deal from both posts. This is the attitude that will see change

    I would like to see the negative attitude against the common folks dropped. People need help and not further alienation. All the low income people had been hearing is their wages were stagnant. You can't blame them for falling for the lies promising them a better deal. There were and are no good examples of how it should be. The reward will come if it ever does from a safer, healthier happier citizenry.

    Donald is setting himself up as the most disgraceful embarrassment in history. Being a private contractor is in no way shape or form similar to or training for the most important job in the world. All he will do is further entrench himself into irrevocable positions. Politician is an adverb not an adjective.

    The more I think about all of this, the more I worry that absolutely nothing is going to come of it. Mueller's appointment gives Republican's a shield to basically shut down their Congressional investigations, which are the only ones that could be held in public. So the appointment of Mueller basically allows this whole investigation to go "quiet" because it will now be conducted in secret.

    That worries me because most Americans have an attention span of a toddler and if this investigation goes quiet then it will be forgotten about in a matter of days.

    Have to think of a way to connect this to daily quality of life to make it relative. As you intimate the finer points of ethics and law have little holding appeal. Jeopardize Monday night football and people would be watching and listening.

    What is a Democrat is an interesting question. I have no clear answer but a video clip shown to me yesterday had a statement that suggested that Democrats/Liberals "Lose". It was by the actor Jeff Daniels. While his charachter was avoiding a question about why "America is the greatest country" he addressed the truth without the mindless flag waving that is too common too often.

    I clicked on the link aand spent a very informative hour. But somewhat depressing. So many people are doing okay that entertaining any meaningful change is upsetting the apple cart and frowned upon. The funny part is we have a President who has it all and he isn't the least bit ashamed of pushing for more for himself. ACA should have started at the bottom. Take care of the have nots. That is so far out of the realm of possibility that Obama was able to penalize people that couldn't afford insurance. A far cry from making insurance affordable. The absolute poorest who need help the most get a pass that says they don't have to have insurance. Is that the same as they don't need insurance? Get an embarrassing outlier and just toss it out.

    Human rights. A little at a time. What about the people that die this afternoon. Mr. President says he doesn't want to tell people how to live? When you have everything nothing is urgent.

    I grew up in the Steel Mining Ohio Valley close to Pitsburgh. Always Union Working Person Democrat. Union doesnt seem to carry any weight. That seems pretty far out from most of the talk here. Country with statstically high employment, proportionally low standard of living and vrtually non existent unionizing. What is a Democrat today? My synoptic characterization: don't dare think let alone demand single payer!

    Tell us about this baggage you speak of . Is it the time he was arrested for protesting with civil rights protestors at Chicago U ? Or the 400,000 dollar house he bought ? Please .

    The DNC is a cold blooded neo liberal one world government corporation crime family tried to shove an unpopular dim witted old woman don our throats . She lost when she put her foot in her mouth several times. One was when she blurted out , that's not going to happen ! When Bernie mentions universal healthcare. Big mistake. The neo liberal billionaire class is losing. They are trying to enslave the world by capturing the government's into debt.

    Ok ?

    Do you understand now ? It's very simple . And the totalitarian right wing fascist corporate model being more aggressive apt to kill real people , have that advantage. They also seem to be better at the internet's. So far.

    Bernie would have won on single payer alone.

    Impossible to understand the resentment and resistance to the greatest hope, Bernie. He was and is the only hope. Parading Trump as a winner in Bernie's place is telling.

    Schmidt, And winning to him is his brand. Dont you think it would be more important to him to get the recognition to advance the brand and holdings without the PIA of being president. What is winning to Trump???
