I raised two daughters; one Gen X and other Millennial. Older daughter is a Democrat and younger daughter is a Socialist Democrat.

I was an Independent until they reached adulthood and became a Democrat in my 60's. Always leaning Democratic. My husband is a Conservative Republican. Blame MOM for my kids views on politics most likely.

I might not totally agree with my younger daughter, but the older I get the more Progressive I have become. This is probably in backlash to the current stream of right wing views. Old enough to remember what mainstream Republicans, like my husband, used to be like.

My Gen X daughter is very much on the same page as me. Misinformed Millennials? I would say NO to that.

Based on what facts can you prove the Russian collusion hoax was not a complete fabrication initiated by the Obama administration the the Cliton campaign?

And yes, lack of education is a huge issue in this country.
Isn’t this the patents’ fault?

Once again, you conveniently pick a part of a quote and run with it. Why no mention of the part of that quote, where he first said, "I love the educated..."?

Is it because you don't know based on your being glued to the so-called MSM or because you try to spin facts to support your narrative?

Well, son, those were the days of personal responsibility. People worked in order to eat. No free stuff back then. You went to a place where the jobs are. Not sit and and wail about how little the welfare check is.

The funny bit is that it's your own damn fault, and you'll never ever understand it.

Late-stage capitalism kinda sucks for a whole lot of people. And every single time someone has suggested a way to improve society at large at the cost of keeping some billionaire from adding a fraction of a percentage to his net worth, you've called it socialism.

And so the young people started taking you at your word.

If security in receiving health care, or an old age that bears thinking about, or decent family leave, or livable minimum wage - all of it things implemented in other Western countries - are socialism, then heck yes, bring it on.

Your efficiency in getting your message across had you kinda playing yourself.
