He looks a little bit like LD/JD’s pup. 🙂

I was thinking that too, since his name is Benny, but Humphrey sez no. 🤨

humphrey

Jcitybone is correct but all the responses were good.

When I said his name is certainly famous that’s what I meant too. The meaning, the dogs name is Benny. ?

Benny

Has anyone seen “A Dog’s Purpose”? I found it endearing.

I have trouble copying block quotes but an interesting argument against Sander’s plan to tax Amazon, etc., to pay for workers’ benefits.

Based on several arguments:

Neither Federal taxes nor taxpayers pay for government spending.

Public assistance should not be framed as a private public partnership.

Sanders plan is still a subsidy.

And he has a four part remedy at the end of the article that he hopes a Bernie staffer reads. :0)

Maybe I’ll learn how to c&p paras….

Im not sure Bernie wrote this one because he expects it to pass and more to high light the issue. There are way better ways of tackling this problem (raise minimum wage etc) but maybe none point their fingers at the largest most wealthiest companies as clearly.

humphrey

Maybe this will help.

In order to add a block quote. You first click on the “b” then copy and paste the desired information. Finally click on the “b” once again to close the quote.

I can do it on my computer, but I can’t seem to copy paragraphs on my phone. ? atAt least some of the time.

humphrey

With my fumble fingers I won’t even attempt to try that on my phone. LOL

Oughta be a crime. Wonder if Warren would try to change that whole business model.

Crappy ole Ronbo Raygun the Fascist gun in the west…..and a major curse on this country!! All this financial stealing, bribing, etc. took off like crazy when that yahoo and his cabal were elected. 🙁

sure hope so

humphrey

Could this enhance the “AOC” effect in the race against Michael Capuano?

Benny

The young Joe Kennedy is endorsing Capuano.

It’s a toss up to me. Capuano has been on board with MfA for awhile.

humphrey

Kennedy is not what I would call a model progressive. This endorsement adds to his establishment credentials. He likely was elected because of his name.

Yes. Oddly, he seems to have a neolib heart.

humphrey

If endorsements actually help this is a good thing.

I think what she really has going for her at this point is even the Hillbots like that she would go after Trump for state laws violated, so after years off anti Trump fervor it may actually end up work for us in this case.

humphrey

I have my doubts that this was one of Trump’s foreign policy objectives. LOL

Russian Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov has met with Head of the Joint Staff Department of the Chinese Central Military Commission Li Zuocheng in Moscow. During the negotiations, the army officials discussed expanding bilateral military cooperation.

“Today I offer to discuss the prospects of expanding and deepening our bilateral relations, including holding joint military exercises and exchanging opinions on the situation in the critical regions of the world,” the chief of General Staff said.

This is Li Zuocheng’s first visit to Russia, which, according to Gerasimov, shows the special nature of Russian-Chinese relations – comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation.

He noted that due to the efforts of Russian and Chinese leaders, the relations between both countries have reached a new, unprecedentedly high level, and have become a new key factor in achieving peace and international security.
