    Everyone in this country should probably be paying more in taxes. The wealthy (families making 250k+) vastly more

    I don't think people really get how climate change and the environmental policies work and why they're important. First, we have to remember that taxing super rich people who have historically paid more than 70% isn't extreme policy; it's something with historical precedent in the 20th century before we decided to tax rich people less and remove ways for poorer people to negotiate. Then, we have to realize that, as Florida has proved, removing environmental regulations to be "pro-business" ironically fucks business over. Blue-green algae in the St. Lucie estuary was helped by runoff and pollution, which allowed the algae to fester off the nutrients from the phosphorous runoff. Some of that blue-green algae affected some beaches, which affects tourism. A sewage spill in Sarasota recently takes money to clean, and the nutrients help foster the growth of red tide, which hurt tourism on both coasts and the Florida Panhandle last year. Then, as warming waters help create strong storms, that hurts lives, business, and tourism and costs billions to clean and rebuild. These idiotic plans to save money now 'cuz business' only lead to us paying more to clean up this shit in the future. But that future is now our present. No, independents want their water and environment clean and they want to use the beaches, and they support taxing the rich.

    I would too. More so it is a reference that when black people free they're assumed guilty even after getting shot themselves, because if they were innocent, why would they run.

    This is who Pelosi has ALWAYS been... not sure why folks are so surprised now. She's always been sharp and an effective politician.

    It was a super fun movie and while the quality varied a little there wasn’t anything that happened that I could say I didn’t like. The tonal shifts reminded me of some Chinese flicks I’ve seen (particularly Stephen Chow’s JOURNEY TO THE WEST, which also blends high adventure and fantastic horror) so maybe not all that surprising that it’s doing so well there. Momoa is a potential megastar, I hope he has a better agent than The Rock. Heard is fine but the role doesn’t ask a lot from her so she can’t really stretch her acting legs here. Great to see Lundgren really getting back into the swing of things, and turns out he’s a great actor too (although again this role doesn’t have a lot for him). Really enjoyed Wilson as Orm, we get to see some more of his range here, I really bought Orm as being driven by a sadness over what’s happened to his mother and his land (sea). Yahya was quite menacing, doing that with just your voice ain’t easy. AQUAMAN is basically all I ask from a superhero movie — that it do at least the minimum to have an engaging story with something to say and have some fun telling the story. It was more than the minimum too and wound up being quite a nice time in the theater. Wan is particularly talented with action sequences and atmosphere and takes a movie that’s pretty good and at times elevates it to greatness.

    I guess it works either way actually. Especially in southern states.

    Every twisted fiction Stephen King has ever dreamt up and set in a Maine town could be visited upon them for real and it still would not atone for giving us Paul "where are da white women at" LePage.

    The "republican" district in the state elected a Democrat, Collins is toast.

    Murkowski ran as a write-in Republican in 2010, she never ran an as independent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_United_States_Senate_election_in_Alaska#General_election She was also still relatively popular outside of the Tea Party-driven primary voter base (and it was a narrow loss in the primary to boot). Whereas as the last surviving Congressional Republican from New England, I think the writing's on the wall for Collins.

    I'd happily pay the $500 I put towards health insurance and my HSA account every month to a M4A program.

    She's going easy. I'm in favor of a 100% marginal tax rate on income over $5 million.

    Yeah. Plus the carbon tax is an actual plan (unlike the GND) that has bipartisan support, and has the ability to pass both houses.

    Her idea seems to be what you're saying though. She didn't give specifics but did say an idea would be for something like a 70% rate to start at $10 million. Not $500k. I don't know if that counts as ultra wealthy per se but yeah.

    Which ones are you referring to? I haven't kept up to speed on every single proposal out there but the ones with the most talk around then always had the top marginal rate affecting "the 1%".

    With income inequality as outrageous as it is you can either start taxing the wealthy more (or raise minimum wages, or set income caps, or some combination of those), or you can start baking cakes and prepping the guillotines. I prefer the non violent solutions.

    The problem with most tax increases that the left has advocated for don't just hit the 1%, they hit the upper middle class as well. If AOC's plan only affects those who make more than $10 million a year, she and the Democrats need to be upfront with that. But if this ends up affecting those that make more than $100k a year, it will be very unpopular.

    Don't Republicans call him "Mike Dense" behind his back? Also, the reason Manafort most likely told Trump to pick him was because he would be like the gimp from Pulp Fiction.

    The funny thing is I remember when Dems won in 06 and people were worried her as a leader would hurt Dems because the party would look too liberal. Now it's AOC and she's not a leader.

    I think it has a lot to do with the fact that 8 years ago most of us probably weren't as engaged, I had never voted yet for example, so most of us probably see her as helpless and hurting the party, not understanding that she was out of power and couldn't do anything.

    Bullshit. Pence has repeatedly been described as dumb as shit. Why would you presume he has any savviness whatsoever? https://hyperallergic.com/339631/vice-president-elect-mike-pence-made-strange-comic-strips-while-in-law-school/

    kinda makes me want to see the Hollywood version of this... just to see the design meet its full potential... As for Gamera, it irks me that the 3 Gamera movies from the 90s are significantly superior to the majority of all Godzilla movies (save the top 5 or so)..

    I would personally keep the tv you have now unless you have a ton of 4k content ready to watch and play. I'm using a plasma TV from 2013 that l still get compliments on all the time whenever somebody comes over. We have a 43" LG 4k HDR tv in the bedroom that usually just streams Netflix. It was a cheaper set so while I can notice the resolution difference, it still isn't THAT amazing especially compared to my plasma that has much better blacks. I'll only replace my plasma someday with an oled or a really high end Qled from Samsung.
