Yeah and they failed to highlight that Bernie made big gains in the poll since their January poll while everyone else stayed about the same

This is one person’s opinion and there is some truth in it.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/03/12/boeing-promises-update-flight-control-system-after-another-max-goes-down/?utm_term=.6a91ce082385

Chicago-based aerospace giant Boeing announced late Monday that it would update flight control systems on its 737 Max 8 commercial jetliners after the plane was involved in two deadly accidents in the past five months. The move came hours after the Federal Aviation Administration issued an advisory mandating specific “design changes” no later than April 2019.

For months Boeing has faced harsh criticism from pilot groups, which took issue with a decision to update the plane’s flight controls without detailing the changes in pilot training.

when first one went down, a new software feature that took control away from operators and was not noted in manuals and training

does this sound familiar?

what it the flight computer says the same thing happened again?

either we kill people or we kill people or …

Corporations Rule the World is the title of a book (something close)

The only things coming out of Boeing that work as intended are bombs.

Bernie likely will get the same sort of treatment.

why did it take so long to find out about the neo liberal econ of the dems?

I think the republican crap, for instance, impeachment of Clinton and 7 years of so going after white water land deal of $30K, and all that crap, took the heat off the destruction of the Clintons as they ran to the middle

they are still trying to keep their program going …

This article in salon.com from his book “Listen Liberals” was one of the turning points for me. Article published March 2016.

The power of TINA – There Is No Alternative

Globalization is unstoppable power taking over the world and it cannot be resisted

(my words here — like indigenous people, submit or die)

Here is Hillary in 1992 telling us to submit to TINA. I put her quotation in bold.

Once Clinton was in the White House, counter-scheduling mutated from a campaign tactic to a philosophy of governance. At a retreat in the administration’s early days, Bill’s chief political adviser, Hillary Clinton, instructed White House officials how it was going to be done. As Carl Bernstein describes the scene, Hillary announced that the public must be made to understand that Bill was taking them on a “journey” and that he had a “vision” for what the administration was doing, a “story” that distinguished good from evil. The way to dramatize this story, the first lady continued (in Bernstein’s telling), was to pick a fight with supporters.

You show people what you’re willing to fight for, Hillary said, when you fight your friends—by which, in this context, she clearly meant, When you make them your enemy.

NAFTA would become the first great test of this theory of the presidency, with Clinton defying not only organized labor but much of his own party in Congress. In one sense, it achieved the desired results. For New Democrats and for much of the press, NAFTA was Clinton’s “finest hour,” his “boldest action,” a deed befitting a real he-man of a president who showed he could stand up to labor and thereby assure the world that he was not a captive of traditional Democratic interests.

Bill Clinton’s odious presidency: Thomas Frank on the real history of the ’90s
Welfare reform. NAFTA. The crime bill. Prisons. Aides wondered if Bill knew who he was. His legacy is sadly clear

The reason it struck me so strong is that Bruno Latour was talking about the plane ride where people going to Globe of Globalization, pilot said does not exist. Then pilot came on later and said we cannot return to the old land. So, need to change course to Gaia.

Trump was selling return to the past and Hillary was selling globalization. Both are failed utopias.

Well, at least the Clinton’s have been consistent. Consistently bad.

An interesting video!

This is how some do it.

Benny

Biden at Int’l Association of Fire Fighters: I appreciate the energy you showed when I was coming up here. I hope you’ll save some of that [energy] in few weeks when I may need it.

Context: the IAFF showed a video called “Run Joe Run”. It was a nice encouraging video for him.

He’s going through some of the accomplishments of his career, in particular how he’s helped unions and the firefighters.

If anyone is interested in seeing the talk:

Benny

Biden: Trading Medicare and Medicaid for tax cuts for billionaires and millionaires. How’s that going to help anybody?

He’s speaking about Jon Stewart’s urging to fund more for 9/11 first responders. Biden asks why it is this still being debated? Should be permanent. (that sets him apart from the other candidates so far)

This is a good group for him to use several themes of national security, climate change (he mentioned the fires in CA last year, the most ever).

He also brings up the incivility in political discourse.

He says unions build the middle class, not Wall St, CEO’s and hedge fund managers. He adds, “they’re not bad people, but they didn’t build this country.”

Hillary Clinton will raise money for the Democratic National Committee at an intimate dinner fundraiser in Washington later this month, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.

The event, scheduled for March 27, is billed as “dinner & conversation” with Clinton and DNC Chairman Tom Perez ans comes as the DNC ramps up for the 2020 presidential race. Between 20 and 30 people are expected to attend, according to a person familiar with the event.
