    Still....it's better than no one. We may need this to trickle before it floods. If it does at all.
  2. I know history repeats itself but 2016 wasn't...

    I know history repeats itself but 2016 wasn't that long ago. Between everyone crying about rigged elections and blaming Hillary for the sky being blue....this shit is getting old.
  3. First, I agree that Biden is not comfortable by...

    First, I agree that Biden is not comfortable by any stretch. Warren's gains do speak to voters looking for alternatives as you suggest. I'm simply pointing out that steady support is also an asset....
  4. First, Biden is losing his advantage, but I don't...

    First, Biden is losing his advantage, but I don't think it's accurate to say he's losing ground. His polling numbers have remained pretty steady. Warren's gains have been at the expense of other...

    I think much of this is coming from your personal bias against Biden and for Sanders. As someone who will vote for a well dressed cat if they get the nomination...I'm trying to look at things...
  6. Maybe, I do think the "What have you...

    Maybe, I do think the "What have you accomplished?" question is a fair, and necessary, one for Sanders. Whatever you think of his ideas, he's never found a way to make them happen. And since...

    Perhaps the reactions you're seeing are not a good representative sample of the people who will actually be voting.
  8. I disagree, Sanders response was to deflect from...

    I disagree, Sanders response was to deflect from the fact that he's accomplished nothing. At least Warren had accomplishments to declare. Sanders literally doesn't.

    I also think it's odd how...

    That attack about not getting things done is something Biden should drub Sanders with all the time. You may not like it, but he ain't wrong.
  10. I can't disagree much with the logic in your...

    I can't disagree much with the logic in your first sentence, but I disagree with the second sentence. Rural areas are losing access, not because a lack of insured by the cost structures to maintain...

    Voters are not always rational.

    Polling on Medicare for All is strong by name. Once you ask people about how they feel about the actual impacts.....not strong at all.

    100% This needs to be said more. Just be direct, it's got a better chance than playing word games with people.
  13. I think it's a mistake to think healthcare voting...

    I think it's a mistake to think healthcare voting is clearly in the Warren/Bernie camp. The mayor may be making a savvy political play to win Iowa.

    Many folks like the sound of medicare for all...

    Perhaps his embrace was only partial for a long time? That seems to be what Moira is indicating....he understood the stakes, but needed a lot of convincing to make the radical changes necessary for...

    I very explicitly said it didn't. That last sentence is rich in light of that fact though!

    You should try to read that again. For someone to whine about disingenuous questions, you've brought a ton of it in pretty much every reply in this thread.

    Hickman, Marvel, and all of us enjoying...

    Great post. If someone is personally not excited that's fine. But it's evident this IS exciting for a lot of hardcore and casual fans. It doesn't make the detractors wrong, but it is evidence that...

    It's totally ok that you don't. Different strokes for different folks.

    For me, this doesn't redefine the X-men at all. They are still not harming humans, they've just stopped pretending they can...

    I won't deny that. I think it's an exciting thing to consider.

    Can he stick the landing to this premise? That's the question and I'm engaged with finding out. It has literally been decades for...

    Hickman was never going to make everyone happy. A few people not enjoying it or having sour grapes is to be expected.

    I don't think Hickman or Marvel cares. The reception has been nothing...

    Worrying that retcons happen is what is meaningless. They happen constantly. And will in the future too.

    We wouldn't have 60 years of comic book stories without them. Or they'd be the kind of...

    This entire post by you is subjective. It's ok you don't like it, but I don't know who you're trying to convince other than yourself.

    I would suggest people's excitement is not primarily about mutants winning....it's about the stories finally being new, fresh, and fun. The X-men haven't felt this way in decades.

    Retcons are a...

    Agree completely. And to those that stomp their feet about canon and retcons and the like, I'd say this: You already recognize the spongy nature whether you acknowledge it or not. Cyclops was an...

    Makes sense. Bernie has never cared much, even during his time in the Senate, about broadening out his appeal.
