But Wednesday night’s debate did not clear even the low bar that Perez set. Over the course of two hours, approximately seven minutes were devoted to the top existential threat facing humanity. And only four of the ten candidates on stage were asked directly about how they intend to rapidly reduce carbon emissions over the next 11 years—something that must be done to preserve a livable planet for future generations.
Yes, why tax the trillion dollar military industrial complex if you could instead tax those who refuse to die for the military industrial complex.
Beto O’Rourke plans “war tax” on families without military members
Hey Beto O’Rourke: quick tip. Answering partially in decent Spanish isn’t actually a substitute for having no concrete policy proposals for what to do to dismantle decades of Clinton-Bush-Obama-Trump racist immigration policy.
Almost everyone tuning into the debate, along with most Hispanic Americans, understands English. It was just Beto being Beto, useless pandering by a mediocre candidate desperate to stand out from the crowd.

New Jersey to require schools to teach LGBT history
WOODLAND, N.J. – New Jersey has become the second state in the nation after California to adopt a law that requires schools to teach about LGBT history in a move hailed by civil rights groups as a step toward inclusion and fairness.
Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who promised to promote equality for gay and transgender people during his campaign, signed the bill Thursday. Among those celebrating the news was Jaime Bruesehoff of Vernon, whose 12-year-old transgender child, Rebekah, spoke in support of the bill in Trenton in December.
From Qasim Rashid (if you can, please donate to his campaign):
I’m getting a LOT of attention today because I’m the first American Muslim in VA history (along with Ghazala Hashmi) to win the Democratic nomination for VA State Senate, and people want to know what I think and what my plan is for the general election.
So as I have your attention—let me say this important message:
The Sudanese people are being murdered & raped & the world must act NOW to stop it.
