I never thought I'd see the day where blue collar workers voted Republican. With private unions all but dead there's just not much to keep them in the DNC.

Progressives are elitists who fancy themselves voices of the poor. This has always been the case for Marxists. Even Marx himself was called out by workers at the time for not understanding them and using them for his own purposes.

Not a Marxist but have worked with my hands. Put in 12 hour days with one half hour lunch and two 15 minute breaks - 95 degrees or 5 degrees nonetheless.

I love hearing some spoiled rotten rich kid from Cincinnati who thinks responsibility was paying for his car insurance through college talk about topics like poor and work.

Bingo.

In overreach they lost their base. The party that believes it is for everyone is actually for no one.

Even Bill Maher made a statement last night about how the Dems need to form an identity and how the working class cares more about jobs than a third bathroom for folks with identity issues.

I don't really know what your point in here. There are a lot of workers who are not even pro-union.

Crusaders definitely doesn't have money, his economic views are proof of this. Not sure what irritable bowel is talking about.

Some truth to that, lol. The "working class" is not anti-union, anti-collective bargaining, anti-minimum wage, anti-consumer protection, pro-trickle down, or support justices who favor Citizens United and nearly every case of business > worker. But as mentioned earlier white working class do feel threatened and angry. While it is successful, and has been throughout history, it does not take a "stable genius" to demagogue and divide people. It takes an opportunist, someone who would spread birtherism and conspiracies, attack our institutions, a talented and supreme con artist, with warped or non-existent moral and ethical standards - as the current POTUS has demonstrated his entire life.

And again, who makes up the bulk of the blue collar/trade work force? Those evil straight white males the Left loves to bash.

Disturbing photos have already surfaced of Kavanaugh serving meals to the poor after meeting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.



Hopefully Chuck is successful in stopping this tyrant.

Going into credit card debt to buy tickets to watch baseball of all sports is definitely questionable. Does he know how much coke and hookers he could have had for 200k?

You do know that the tickets he bought were season tickets and they all were not for him. Some were for friends and they payed him back for the tickets. That is how you buy tickets when you would like to sit together and enjoy the games as friends. When he got paid back he payed his credit card off. How do you say - Fake News!!!!!!!

My, how you have grown. It is great to see you questioning your programming so very often these days.

When Trump rolled this guy out the other night listening to the liberal hacks on TV I thought Trump picked Charles Manson. I was wrong. When this thing is all wrapped up he'll be worse then Manson.

If you are somewhere where you can watch TV I recommend turning on and watching a listening to the speeches opening the confirmation hearing. You would not believe people are taking about the same man.

Pretty much how they viewed and talked about John McAin. When he was alive and running of course.
