    Neither -- Gail said Medicare for all is socialism. Thanks, Gail, for supporting Big Pharma, which is ripping off all of us. And killing some people by promoting the overuse of pharmaceuticals that make people sicker and sometimes cause their death.

    Yeah, I thought Gail's short remarks about health care basically reflected the fact that she's Republican. (Not a Trump Republican, but a more traditional GOP type person.) I got the sense she hasn't looked very closely at the question.

    It reflected that's shes a billionaire. Billionaires dont have a political party other than "let me keep my money" party.

    Not true in any way. It's like you haven't even heard of Soros.

    I think at base the Millers are good people but they certainly don't understand that not everyone is lucky enough to be as successful as LHM and that doesn't say he didn't earn it but with all success there is a lot of luck involved.

    lol indeed. What an ignorant thing to say that was. It's like you don't understand the power those with money have to advance their ideology. Makes me think you were going to follow it with a cliche about how both parties are equally bad.

    Both parties are bad / corrupt, though the Republican Party's ideology is much worse.

    Cool story. But Cy seems to be a smart person. Only reason I responded to that.

    Those with power don’t have ideologies for their own minds. Ideologies are for people to follow and spend energy on made up causes. This is why practice usually never meets theory and structures based on ideologies get corrupted sooner or later.

    Not true. Those with money are just people, and they work the same way as other people.

    Stop fetishising ****.

    I'm the one trolling? Not the one with the rhetoric about the man controlling the idiot masses? Ooookay.

    Billionares just care about advancing their money. It's how/why they became billionaires.

    They aren't. They are either born into and their view of society is warped to an extreme amount or they have some kind of psychotic drive.

    We arent talking about people with tens of millions, we are taking about people with thousands of millions.

    This campaign actually roots back to days before his 2nd NBA spring. So I really appreciate what he has done with it to this day. He did not give up on it for his pro career and it turned out, well pretty darn well I might say considering Michelle Obama even tweets @ you which can be the highlight of almost all people’s internet experience.
