I have no idea what Klobuchar thinks about anything.
That's what we call electability. You fill in the blanks on your own.
This is a good point. We didn't know what Barack Obama thought about anything in 2008 or 2012.

Also no one except idiots have ever claimed that shareholders provide some kind of service. They provide capital, and they want return on that investment. Sort of like, oh I don't know, people who buy sovereign debt.

I mean we all live in Trump’s America, and nobody likes it. But we still manage to comport ourselves like adults rather than thirsty deluded teenagers throwing public tantrums and accusing people of plotting against us.

I mean there's a lot of takes out there about the ad. I haven't seen any that express offense. I found it funny that her vlogging looked like she was being held hostage by a stationary bike (which, considering the cost of a Peloton, might not be far off).

Re: No Depression - The (alt) Country Music Thread

I wouldn't be able to stand having alt-country and indie rock on the same Pandora station. I would just start a new station to keep them separate.

Saw a way-too-many-bumperstickers car today with one that said "Ron Paul Was Right". It was right next to the Infowars sticker, so it's an open question what he was right about.
