Thomas Frank, at his book signing for Listen Liberal! He also just back from the U.K. & when I told him about what Joy Reid’s tweet, he said that folks over there say The are Socialists without shame. He also encouraged us to read his 5000 word essay at the Guardian about the election.

This one? Posted on ‘eve’ of the election?

From rust belt to mill towns: a tale of two voter revolts

The self-destructive qualities of the Brexit vote have been much noted, of course. In the satisfied, bankerly quarters of the country, the choice to stay in the EU was an easy one – for reasons explained at length by free-trade stalwarts such as the Economist and the New York Times. But the satisfied were outnumbered by the furious.

It’s very good! (but I didn’t count how many words it has πŸ˜‰ )

The ending of a way of life here was not the doing of the godlike forces of capital, but instead the deliberate result of a government campaign to destroy the power of workers – of ordinary people – and to put the country on a track that was more in keeping with the free-market ideology.

I also liked how his piece shed some light on the role of Ukip.

Stephen Jaffe! He knows about us now! He would like to talk to us sometime.

Hightower says we are Progressive agitators! Who is not here? Corporate fat cats! TBTB aren’t here either. We are taking on the bulls%#ers!

Benny

Our politics need to be hotter than high school love!

About Trump: whenever Hiightower sees one of tweets, he thinks “100000 sperm and he was the fastest? “

Benny

Crowd cheers when Bernie appears on the screen! Nina Turner too!
