The conspiracy theories about Iowa are bizarre.

I'm not seeing them repeated here much because they essentially violate community norms here, but they are fascinating.

The essential theory is that a global cabal of evildoers is faking all of the data out of Iowa.

All in all, it's nice to come to Democratic Underground and be free from conspiratorial and delusional nonsense.

"I am a member of no organized political party."

Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's tragic!

I will be so happy when these primary battles have ended

And I hope that in future primaries, policy discussions replace this weird policy oneupsmanship.

If I hear another reference to some phrase that can be mildly construed as problematic from decades ago, I'm going to just tune it all out.

Any candidate that Democrats put forward will have to govern with broadly Democratic policy ideas. All of the major candidates are good enough for me. None of them is a no-starter.

Bloomberg's tax proposal to net $5 trillion

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/481031-bloomberg-tax-proposal-seeks-to-collect-5-trillion-from-high-income

He is not my first choice, and I do distrust billionaire candidates in general. But if he becomes our nominee, I would of course vote for him and I would hope very much to see rational taxation come back. You can only bring in revenue by taxing people who have money. taxing the poor is pointless. Taxing the middle class heavily is also a mistake, I believe.

PETA consistently targets black Americans

For many years, the animal rights organization has targeted and attacked black Americans with the most vicious and dehumanizing language they can use. Aretha Franklin was a gigantic target of their hate. Many other black people have been targeted by the group.

And now they want to run a commercial comparing black people to animals and suggesting that speciesism is more important than racism.

A lot of people don't know that the group has strong loyalty to the white race. I detest that organization.

Funny Yang video from the New Yorker

I haven't seen anyone post this, and I apologize if it's a duplicate. But he has been growing on me, and this is a hilarious video.

Tulsi Gabbard and mental stability

She believes that Hillary Clinton is taking her life. Taking her life.

That is delusional. That is an insane, almost psychotic belief.

I try to look for the good in her, but her claim that her life is being taken from her makes me wonder.

Monmouth favorability: Biden, Sanders, Warren, Yang

I've been impressed by how Yang has been able to draw attention and support. I don't think that this is his cycle, but he might really be a valuable contribution to our national politics someday. Democrats are warming up to him tremendously.

The favorability is discussed about halfway down this:

Unfollowing a lot of Sanders supporters on Twitter

They appear to be preparing for a Lost Cause narrative, and the rage is real.

Intellectually bankrupt!

I love the Democratic party because it contains many people, many opinions, and many points of view.

I guess that looks like intellectual bankruptcy to some.
