NO, I cannot explain what I meant because the mod will suspend me again. But the meaning ought to be clear enough to anyone who has a grasp of basic English comprehension. If you don't get it, just post your question to someone else, I'm sure that person got it and I'm sure that poster explaining what I meant would not get him/her suspended because it's from a 3rd person.

You preface your brand of liberalism with progressive, which is an entirely different thing. Progressives are not Liberals, they simply hijacked the term and the party.

Progressives gather in herds to scream at the sky, they require safe spaces to keep from hearing words that might hurt their feelings, they rally to shut down alternative thought... and you have the audacity to claim to be fact-driven?

IF you and your ilk were fact-driven Trump wouldn't be in the Whitehouse.

IF you were fact driven you wouldn't be so utterly wrong all the time and so completely oblivious to it!
LOL. This is like being called ugly by a frog.

Yes, Trump and his supporters are facts driven. I guess Ted Cruz's father really did killed JFK.

At some point, you gotta to realize that the world is not dumb right? This entire post not only insult our intelligence by assuming we are idiots, but it makes the right-wing looks even more lunatic than they normally are.

Hopefully one day you'll grow up to actually be what you claim, rather than claiming what you're not.

LOL. ........ After you just wrote a post demeaning progressives.

Folks, some people are so oblivious that they seem utterly unreal yet they exist, mostly in the right-wing.

You could make an argument that the immigrants were providing cheap labor to northern manufacturing.

The South during your time period had wealth concentrated far more in the hands of a few than the North. Keep in mind, most white southerners in antebellum America were not well off.

Not GDP, which was the qualifier used to make a point, California is so great.

Population does not create GDP. Slave labor and exploited population does.

California’s economy picking up in second half
Dec. 26, 2017 - The economic juggernaut that is the California economy barreled forward in November as the state added 47,400 net new jobs and the unemployment rate dropped to 4.6 percent, from 4.9 percent a month earlier.

The robust gains were a slight improvement from the prior month’s upwardly revised 45,400 jobs increase, according to data released Friday by the Employment Development Department. The Golden State’s economy got off to a slow start this year, but has been picking up steam in the second half.

The state has now added jobs in three consecutive months, after several months of alternating job losses and gains.
