    When everyone is fighting for the entire pie, the end result is everyone will be hungry and turn against you. This is why Conservatism and Republican ideologies don’t work.

    Unlike Democratic ideas where there is a piece for everyone.

      It’s very nice and kREAMY
      Obama says it’s love

    • Davon Reeves
      Bernie wants more of my money!
      No thanks!
      You guys want open borders reparations and for me to stop eating meat!
      No thanks!

    • @Brett Orlob if tax and spend policies worked the big blue states wouldn’t be losing productive people

    • @Troy Stocker it’s not an either or dilemma. That’s a false dichotomy that serves the interests of society’s ownership class (people who live entirely on dividends & capital gains).

      Ir also serves the interest of their pet politicians, Democrat & Republican alike. It keeps people defending irrational ideas just because the other side’s irrational ideas are made to look foolish & stupid by their side’s propaganda.

      Some taxes & enough of a state to provide infrastructure & protect the commons from bad actors are necessary, but the owners wish to plunder the commons.

      In service of this goal, they keep the people convinced the opposition party is to blame for fundamental economic problems (which includes environmental sustainability) neither side is remotely prepared to fix.

      & your assumptions about my politics serve them well.

    • @Brett Orlob using Kansas as a way to measure thing is kind of a poor choice considering the geography and weather of the state. The political class is only going to protect itself. The government may do many things, but they dont do anything very well

  2. Brainless Boris is a TRUMPTARD!

  3. Boofhead Boris is England’s “Clown-in-Chief”

    • @John Swofford A “city of a state” like dallas is still not called a “country” lol….Go back to high school and learn something you dumbass.

    • @John Swofford Texas is the largest state of the political union of the USA

      England is the largest country in the political union of the UK.

      These two places do not equate to the same thing, fuckwit.

    • Funniest part is it will be only England soon. Scotland & Wales want to exit the United Kingdom & be part of the EU. If the Northern Irish see the future they’d be smart to join them. Boofhead Boris’s plan to go back 400 years is clearly working….

    • @Clown in CHIEF Does Dallas have a different POTUS then?

  4. DISunited Kingdom ahahahaha Putin wins AGAIN

  5. If the UK was smart, it would find Steve Bannon, who I’m sure is in some European country sowing seeds of fear and hatred in an effort to appeal to the very worst nature within people, and drag him into a deep dark cell along with Nigel Farage and Boris. They all deserve each other.

  6. UK 1919: the empire on which the sun never sets
    UK 2019: sometimes we get a little sun in June

  7. Kkkonservatives are still destroying America.

    Boris has a jacket with a label saying ‘Prime Minster’ on the front: In the UK we think that is so that when he meets Trump, Trump realizes he is not looking into a mirror.

  9. to simple. the real story is this: the neoliberal revolution was ignitiated by reagonomics and theatcherism. open market, open borders, competition, no unions, shrinking social care. the last 3 decades the rich got richer the people were left behind. now it is obvious neoliberalism is not working. to rescue their head the „konservatives“ changed to close the borders and raise custom duties. no open markets no open boarders any more. one is building walls the other is retreating behind the channel both are using hate against foreigners, nationalism and racism. the fire neoliberalism started. All the best from germany!


  11. How much of this is really due to economic downturn or decline? When it is good, the ism is all good even the dirty politics is not so bad.

    I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it. ~ John Stuart Mill (May 20 1806 – May 8 1873)

  13. Fareed has never heard of the PRI in Mexico I’m guessing. Lol

    Torries are going the way of the Republicans.,

  15. We are watching the end of the UK, period!

  16. Thatcher had the same problem weeding them out the wets in the party.

  17. Something about all this seems to remind one of the early 20th century prior to WW1.

  18. Globalization was good until excess has been made.
    That is why Trump and Brexit appears.

  19. They’ve become a relic, with an ideology founded on mendacity. Good riddance.

  20. In the next few years I might get to see the end of CNN, no more fake news for a better future
