  •  But the left is winning! (0+ / 0-)

    But I thought, from all of those articles critiquing Adolph Reed, that the left is winning!

    So, clearly, this can't be true. Nope. Nope.

    •  Huh? Not sure how that fits my comment. (0+ / 0-)

      Really, I do not understand your comment.  Reed has a critique and sees little to no difference between the parties.      I don't know of any critique of Reed saying the "Left is winning," but I don't read everything.  By the way, what is the Left.  Bernie Sanders?  Socialists?  Anarchists?   Bourgeois radicals seeking to perfect capitalism?  Anti-racists?  Those seeking to lessen economic inequality?  Those seeking to end any economic inequality?  Anti-imperialists?

      Granted, there appears to be a Team Left on Daily Kos, but that is just for sporting people who play games.  Bu definition, Team Left cannot win because then teh game on Daily Kos would be over.    

      So I really do not understand your comment.  But you do, and that is all that really matters.

      •  Sorry for any confusion (0+ / 0-)

        There have been a number of critiques (I've read some in Salon, TAP, other places) of Reed's argument that amount to "Bill DeBlasio and Elizabeth Warren won, so there is a new populist resurgence in the Democratic Party!" However, if there was such a "resurgent progressive populism," then someone like Andrew Cuomo would not be gliding to an easy victory, unchallenged, in one of the nation's bluest states. Rahm's existence and (surprising) continued popularity also undermine the critiques of Reed. I was being sarcastic in my original comment, and that might not have been conveyed clearly.

        •  Something that many fail to realize. (0+ / 0-)

          New Yorkers, at least from the right (I mean proper, the left part of the state) on the Western edge of the state, don't think of R vs D in the same light on the state level as the national level.  There have been many state representatives that have voted against what would be considered national party lines.  Sadly, our state government is so f*cking corrupted that it just doesn't matter, we pay some of the highest taxes on the PLANET so that we can feed downstaters and we don't even get a decent price on electricity, even though we have the MOST cost effective form of energy creation, the Niagara Falls.  That goes to downstate, other states and Canada for Christ's sake.  We should be paying 5 bucks a month no matter how much we use, it's clean, it's plentiful and it's completely renewable, yet we import dirty, pollution filled energy while the clean shit we make goes elsewhere.  We even have windmills in Lake Erie.  IT MAKES NO SENSE, unless you're a politician and you feed off the corporate shills.  Welcome to NYS, bitches!  Seem fair to you?  It's like paying $50 for a steak in Texas, what idiotic Texan would pay $50 for any cut of meat?  Yet we have a state that's 98% okay with getting raped, except Law and Order SVU of course.  

          I'm damaged and I like it, it made me what I am! BTW, my avatar is as stollen as my father's retirement fund, the old man died almost penniless. Bankers don't go to prison for breaking our laws, they buy bigger yachts.

          •  Oh yeah, our water is next. (0+ / 0-)

            Why not make a pipe line to desert states who need water.  BECAUSE THEY LIVE IN A DESERT!  That's also up for grabs, just sayin'.
