Redking, it's the same thing you've said every fucking time.  Just go masturbate to the old posts.

Not my fault if it continues to be true.

Seriously....CHILL.

No mention was made of Clinton or Sanders or implications of anything. SalmonGod literally just said "Hey, heard this this thing happened" with no analysis or finger-pointing and you go batshit defensive. It's getting really, REALLY tiresome.

LITERALLY all you have done here is personal attacks.  This was a conversation about an item on a party platform.  You have not posted a single word about the actual discussion.

Fight! Fight! Fight!

Er but really...  You two are much better informed than me, and I learn a lot from your posts.  When you aren't hatesnogging.  Then it's just entertaining, but not really in a good way.

Yeah I know Redking is provoking you, Mainiac, but you're very thin skinned.  Stop reacting so much, don't let it be personal.
except in PMs and my fanfic.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize "conversations" start by you accusing the other party of being a "victimized Bernie fan". You must be a hit at the DC cocktail parties.


And yes, I did try to steer this toward substantive actual conversation by pointing out that I can't even find confirmation if the $15 proposal was shot down or not. Hard to discuss if you don't have clear facts as to what actually happened.

For my part, I agree with Keith Ellison that $15 is still well below what minimum wage equivalent would be if indexed to 1968. And I think any proposal, whether $12 or $15, should index to inflation to provide an automatic mechanism to keep wages on pace, otherwise it's just a temporary stopgap. I can appreciate the argument that $15 in Mississippi is not the same as $15 in San Diego, but that argument seems to suggest that the impoverished, shitty parts of the country are cool with just remaining impoverished, shitty parts of the country. Wage growth is only for urbanites.

Redking, what is the purpose of these posts other then to antagonize?  Seriously, you keep calling me thin skinned.  What are you aiming to accomplish other then to be hostile and unwelcoming?

Because I can tell you the aim of my statement.  After post number five hundred and thirty three which used an imcomplete picture to repeat a tired narrative of the democratic party as corporate sellouts I felt like referencing that this keeps happening.  It was a page after someone accused Bill Clinton of election tampering.  The first reply to it was this:

Seeing some buzz that the DNC platform committee voted to reject the $15 minimum wage?

Don't be fooled, the Democrats are the most conservative legitimate political party in the USA.

It feels to me that you feel that anyone who doesn't think the democratic party is corporate sellouts is taking an attitude of hostility to you.  That is not my intention.  My intention is to point out a pattern.
