Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching Howard Schultz and Elizabeth Warren trade insults over Warren’s proposed wealth tax and shudder to think that Schultz might be the most sensible liberal considering a 2020 presidential run. They also slam Kamala Harris for suggesting that lawmakers who don’t support gun control don’t care about the victims of mass shootings and contending that if Republicans saw photos of murdered children that they would vote differently. And they laugh and cringe as the chairwoman of a California State Senate committee bans the use of gendered pronouns in committee – and then proceeds to violate her own rule over and over again.

    The obnoxious advertising is really bad. I think there were 4 this time! I pay for this site and find it unacceptable to have to endure ads as well. I will be thinking about my renewal. Please change this. It’s really awful!

    The first US income tax, during the Civil War, was 3% on incomes over $800. After some fits and starts, it’s a lot higher now. I could see the wealth tax acting the same way.

    Yes, they are counting on hatred of Trump for getting power. They are counting on voters ignoring what policies they want to implement. That hatred may be enough.

    or you could do what I do: Advance the cursor, so that you do not have to listen to the ad.

    It may indeed be enough. I keep on trying to tell die-hard Trump loyalists that most people vote on perception. And they perceive in Trump someone who is quite strange, and refuses to act like a grown-up. The non-ideological voter then takes it out on people who find nothing wrong with the man. Bottom line: Trump may wind up giving us people who are the most left-wing we’ve ever seen seen in this country.
