Subject:   Schultz's 3rd Party Bid
Date:   1/29/2019 9:21:45 AM

This could get very interesting.  You will have the Democrat nominee that will be a full tilt, batsh!t crazy socialist trying to give away everything for free and appealing to every aspect of identity politics you can imagine.  Then you will have Trump.....well, being Trump.....  And finally you have Schultz, a mishmash of bed wetting social liberal, pro-business, deficit hawk ideas and tons of cash to pay for his own run. 

One thing I can assure you of is that if Trump thinks he won't erode his vote he is mistaken.  Lots of socially liberal, fiscally conservative people voted for him against Hillary and many of them will find Schultz an attractive alternative.  Having said that, Schultz will definitely erode the Democrat's hopes in the burbs where latte drinking, college educated soccer moms went their direction in the mid-terms.  Heck, Schultz should also have a lock on the homeless and drug addicts since he opened his bathrooms to them.

I hope he runs just for the entertainment value.  And it will be interesting to see if left wing nuts put together a boycott of Starbucks.  Between that and Trump's taunting he just can't possibly back down.  Now the question is whether he ends up trying to get the Democrat nomination, especially after trashing both parties.  From the outset he has already alienated ~50% to 60% of the voting public.  We live in interesting times.

Schultz will really screw up things for liberal idiots.  Guess he didn’t want to toe the PEE-losi line.  Hope he spends all his Starbuck’s cash.

Bloomberg is telling him not to run... but Bloomberg may run as a Democrat.....If elected, that would be a disaster for gun owners, as he funds one of the anti gun groups that trieds to lean on companies not allow guns in their establishments.  

I saw Schultz on 60 Minutes and he sounded like a reasonable guy.  It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.  Election might be the war of the Billionair Titans.  But it appears that Kamala Harris is the current media darling - being both Black and a woman Democrat.

Kamala's blackness has been questioned by some Democrats (in particular Don Lemon).  She's not really African-American and is not "down for the struggle." Her mother is Tamil Indian and her father Jamaican.  She has no slave blood!!

The American south was not the only place where black slaves were common.  A slave is and was a slave wherever he or she is held in slavery.  Almost all black citizens of Jamaica are descended from African slaves imported to the colony in the 17th - 19th century.  Not that it has anything to do with the price of eggs in China, but only if Harris's daddy was not among the tiny number non-slave descended Jamacian blacks, would she have no slave blood in her.  So what?

So what ? ask your party - they seem to be the one questioning if her skin has the right amount of slave in it.

I am shocked I tell you!  Really, really shocked beyond belief!  I thought slavery originated and only existed in the southern United States.

   Having a bit of slave blood is about as qualifying as having hepatitis C.

Did either one of you even read my post?  Based on your responses one has to wonder.  If you did read it you obviously did not understand why it was posted or what it said!

To quote Antifatech:
"The American south was not the only place where black slaves were common.  A slave is and was a slave wherever he or she is held in slavery.  Almost all black citizens of Jamaica are descended from African slaves imported to the colony in the 17th - 19th century.  Not that it has anything to do with the price of eggs in China, but only if Harris's daddy was not among the tiny number non-slave descended Jamacian blacks, would she have no slave blood in her.  So what?"

 

Yes I did read it and understood it - apparently you had a hard time understanding my post, which was pretty short and to the point.

"So what ? ask your party - they seem to be the one questioning if her skin has the right amount of slave in it."

I am not the one concerned about how black she is or how much slave blood she has - Democrats are the ones who are raising those questions.  I can care less the color of her skin, if she has "slave blood" or if her privates dangle or not.  

 

I care that she wants to eliminate private health care and go off into single payer.

So before you go off questioning anyone elses typos or reading comprehension, please make sure that you actually read what was written.  I understand that you have a hard time with reading comprehension or overlooking typos Mr. Grammer Nazi.
