The Third Democratic Debate

The Third Democratic Debate

2019-09-1300:29:5237

Just 10 candidates qualified for the stage in Houston, but that didn’t change some recurring themes: Joe Biden was again the target of fierce scrutiny, and health care was a central point of contention. But what else did we learn?Guest: Alexander Burns, who covers national politics for The New York Times.For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading:Attacks on Mr. Biden highlighted the divide over the Obama legacy, with the former vice president repeatedly invoking his old boss’s name.Many Democrats hoped that defeating an unpopular, rampaging president would be relatively simple. But party officials are wary of some potential vulnerabilities that this debate re-emphasized.Here are six takeaways from the contest.
Andrew Yang, a former tech executive, remains one of the least known candidates in a Democratic presidential field that includes senators, mayors, a governor and a former vice president. But by focusing on the potential impact of automation on jobs, he has attracted surprisingly loyal and passionate support.

But the “bromance” between Mr. Johnson and Mr. Trump is more complex than it might seem.Mr. Johnson’s chief aide, Dominic Cummings, who appeared to revel in the feud with Parliament, has become a lightning rod for criticism of the government’s strategy.

I recommend this episode highly. So cool that the Daily interviewed Andrew Yang. You will understand why he is growing his grass root support in this mission impossible. I have never appreciated liberal positions like loan forgiveness, but his articulation on the need for universal basic income is so convincing. He is ahead of his time. Although there is no way he will make the primary, he is at least rasing the awareness of some critical issues that we will eventually face.

"I hate how life-apologists say 'Life isn't all suffering. What about the simple pleasures, like eating ice cream?' They always use that example. Even if I didn't recognize the flaws in their assertion, when I think of ice cream, I can only see a repugnant lump of pus crushed out of cows' bloody nipples, who spend their entire lives confined in filth, where they're periodically raped so that they're incessantly pregnant… I always ride the pessimism train down different tracks until it inevitably leads me to contemplating over 500 million years of animals cannibalizing each other. Excuse me for not being thrilled by the extra jimmies on my ice cream cone".

He’s addressed these topics in great detail in other conversations, as well as his website. This seemed lacking in content, as we didn’t hear the full interview. But it’s just as easy as adding stops and levers, like u said.

yang is also being promoted by a group on 4chan/pol. they think they can meme him the way they did Trump. but mostly they are n.e.e.t.s who dream of having basic necessities paid to continue sitting in the basement online.

READ the book "The War on Normal People". (It's on Audible for all you podcast lovers, or you can find it "free" on YouTube) You will get that Andrew is dead serious and he's the one candidate to meet the challenges of 2020 head-on. #Yang2020 #HumanityFirst
