We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

So now we should believe that John Fetterman ran a shrewdly-calculated campaign, convincing voters that he represents the working class? "He looks and sounds like a working class Pennsylvanian who is empathetic to the struggles of his neighbors."
Besides his hoodies, what is working class about John Fetterman>? How many years has he spent at working class jobs? How many years has he lived a working class lifestyle?
Some top-notch reporting there.
He looks and sounds like a working class Pennsylvanian
So "working class Pennsylvanians" cannot utter a complete sentence or have a coherent thought?
The Guardian is parody site. We don't get much PA news here on the West Coast, so I have to ask, Did Oz hang the Kensington Ave drug situation on Fetterman? Hang it hard, Is this your daughter?, bumper stickers, window signs for Fetterman. As I see it, Oz was splitting the difference before he even got to the bargaining table.
There's reality and there is campaigning. John Fetterman ran for the Senate in 2016 from his Braddock mayor job as a champion of the downtrodden and an unconventional politician. He lost, but the image stuck, and he easily was elected Lieutenant Governor in 2018.
He has toured the state and met with people in every county wearing cargo shorts and a hoodie instead of the usual politician garb. Regardless of the underlying realities of his life, that is how you establish a populist image as a committed leftist. You'd be surprised how many PA Trump voters also liked John Fetterman.
That's not funny!
It is sad, insulting, outrageous, dangerous, stupid...
He can't string a coherent sentence together.
Yet the Democrats pulled out all the stops for him. They really want puppets instead of someone who might think for themselves and get away from the accepted/acceptable narrative.
re "This Is Unprecedented": Enron Liquidator Overseeing FTX Bankruptcy Speechless: "I Have Never Seen Anything Like This"
It boggles my feeble mind.
But they sum it up with, if SBF avoids prison it is only because his tens of millions in (stolen) "donations" to Democrats have bought him a get out of jail for life card.
Meanwhile Elon Musk has a target painted on him for not toeing the Dem party line.

Bill Clinton and Tony Blair
Rep. Maxine Waters
Obama CFTC Commissioner Jill Sommers
Janet Yellen, Mike Pence, Mark Zuckerberg, and Volodymyr Zelensky
Democrats Ask the FTC to Investigate Musk for 'Undermining' Twitter
The bestest parts... US taxpayers money sent to Ukraine for "support", then Ukraine's Zelensky hands money to FTX to "invest", then FTX "donates" millions back to democrat campaigns, then more taxpayer dollars sent to Ukraine for "more support", Now Maxine Waters in charge of "investigating" FTX.
This seems rather familiar to the old Obama/Biden Ukraine scandal involving taxpayer dollars. And Pelosi son, Kerry son, Romney son, and Biden son. Lather, rinse, repeat..............
Old 10% must fit in here somewhere.
Rudy Giuliani pointed out that Ukraine was a giant money laundering operation in 2019.
I refuse to read any economic or political article concerning the working-class that does not include the word immigration a single time. We are being erased and replaced. Almost everything being fed us in the news is a distraction. Decade after decade working-class people have wanted less legal immigration and zero illegal immigration and we have received the opposite. I voted for Jimmy Carter and Al Gore. We no longer live in the same country. We have been occupied.
There are great profits for the corporate fascists that import goods and import people to produce goods.
Then get the imported people signed up at the motor voter, unemployment, and social welfare circuits to get that ballot to pay off the uniparty that approved all the imports.
"employees of the FTX Group submitted payment requests through an on-line ‘chat’ platform where a disparate group of supervisors approved disbursements by responding with personalized emojis."
Biden and the washerwomen...
Have you seen what is happening in Brazil? You won't see it on TV because our media is trying to black it out. But the people are uprising over the recent election that the left stole. Too bad we don't have the guts to do the same. If we don't do something soon it will be stolen elections forever.
Thanks for the tip. Gateway Pundit has a story about it, skipped the MSM coverage, notice the Brazilian Supreme Court said it was OK ala Justin Trudeau to seize bank accounts like the truckers.
John Fetterman mooched off his father until well into middle age. Some people have a strange idea of "working class".
I'm pretty sure the people of Pennsylvania knew they weren't electing John Fetterman, they were electing his wife. Look into her background - she's a far leftist flake.

Hey, you can have as many genders as you want. Knock yourselves out!
But there are still only two sexes.
