Professor and other libs should consider gifting 4-5 subscriptions to boost the dying NYT's sales.

Democrats aren't communists. You seem confused. We are still capitalists.

Yeah, but how capitalistic is the question. Throwing out people while still enjoying revenue growth seems like the kind of heartless capitalistic activity that NYT usually speaks out against, doesn't it?

There is a real strong historical case to be made that FDR and his New Deal saved capitalist democracy. Republicans were happy to let the system disintegrate during the Great Depression. That is what led to fascism and communism in Europe.

The only folks in this entire world that still seem to have confidence in and have deep love for Prez Trump are Russians and their long lost cousins in America. And what do these Trump-lovers love to refer Russians as? (and lately, have become themselves Russians, haven't they).
