    It's his right to leave the party just as it is yours if you don't agree with its policies. From elections results any rational person would be unconvinced that most of the country is thirsting for your liberal policies, so maybe he's giving good advice.

    Do you agree with Cloobecks advice?

    About his opinion about Democratic party leaders saying the word "billionaires"?

    I think he was more complaining about Democratic leaders trashing bilkionaires than objecting to the word itself. Knowing you, you would do the same if you were in a similar situation.

    Democratic leaders trashing billionaires for what?

    I have no real interest here. You asked if I agreed with what he said. I'm still trying to figure out what he said. It wasn't as you said, that he was angry about Dem leaders using the word billiionaire, it was the negative context behind it. Don't you agree?

    Cloobeck said he (and other Democratic party donors) will cut off their funding if they don't stop talking about billionaires.

    i think he's refering to the part of the interwiew that you just cut out here ill bold it out for you



    the interviewer framed the question it's clear he's answering the question asked



    now are you expecting him to carry on funding a party that says "Down with the billionaires, we can't stand the rich!"??
    shoulld he be buying them the pitch forks and petrol bombs ready for when they come to destroy him just because he is rich?

    I don't think he's objecting to them talking about billionaires, I think he's objecting to being criticized for being a billionaire. Not for what he does, but for what he is. Steve Jobs was a billionaire was Steve Jobs a bad person because he was a billionaire?

    I don't know the object of your ire. Is he a bad man? Or is he bad just because he cut some large checks to fund some politician's campaigns? You do know that Republicans have access to people of enormous wealth and they are funding PACs, Super Pacs, and political campaigns, don't you?

    I don't think legally contributing to Democrats is necessarily a bad thing in today's political situation. Ron Wyden, by the way, is a pretty good progressive Senator.

    No, Steve Jobs was a bad person because he was an asshole.

    Traditionally, the full benefit age was 65, and early retirement benefits were first available at age 62, with a permanent reduction to 80 percent of the full benefit amount. Currently, the full benefit age is 66 for people born in 1943-1954, and it will gradually rise to 67 for those born in 1960 or later.
    Same in the UK but raising to 68 years of age.

    Aug 15, 2017 - The typical American leaves the workforce at age 63. Meanwhile, in China, the average retirement age is decidedly younger: 55.

    China's looking better everyday. Come, invest make millions, billions!
    Just don't let the general population know.

    It's no longer a Soapbox but an extruded block of plastic that needs to have some heat applied for the poor man to be able to step up.

    the fucking interviewer in the video you quoted........... for fuck sake

    although you arent a democrat but you are the sort of people he's talking about.

    its almost as if you are making a concious descision to pick the most stupid position possible at every turn

    So how's their representation of you going?

    Got affordable healthcare?

    Got a decent wage?

    Got a good education?

    Got a police force that respects your rights and a Justice department that protects you from their abuses?

    Got a good tax rate?

    Hint; if you aren't a multi millionaire, the answers are all, 'no, now shut up and go away until you can fork over a six figure campaign donation'.
