    I suppose the right and the left coming together is a pipe dream and he ignores the 400 lb gorilla in the room. IMO, the conversion of religious attitudes - abortion, prayer in schools, etc. - into political principles, and their conflation with governmental principles, is the root of many of our problems...

    No doubt about that at all. However, if he can help - the enemy of my enemy...

    well, he will have to drop the constant appeals to white nationalism for me to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    It seems a very worthwhile debate. It begs the question of...with a middle class in continual decline for more than a generation what remains to fuel the economic engines including Wall Street?

    imo, a lot of folks are going to have to stop conflating middle class/working class with "white" if we want to have a meaningful debate

    The fact that we shipped all of our manufacturing jobs to Japan then to China and other locations over the last thirty years is one of the reasons we have this rise of aggressive white nationalism. There is little room for discussion of the finer points of affirmative action when we have shuttered major cities in the mid west where the middle class both black and white once aspired to the American dream.

    Jeez! I'm not giving him the benefit of anything. However, his current course cannot hurt...

    i think if he stays on it, they will just remove his show from fox and get someone else in to push their propoganda and he will disappear down the memory hole.

    IDK. Even Coulter, whom some blame for the president's present wall mania, has been saying some odd things lately. I watch with interest...

    their absurd worldview doesn't really coexist with reality very well. maybe seeing it in actual practice and the results it brings is causing their brain to short circuit.
