"No applause for Ronald Reagan?"

quote [ I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still. ]

They are showing over and over again their principals are as phony as their hero worship of Saint Ronny.

Right wingers are losing their shit over a high school video of Ocasio-Cortez innocently dancing on a rooftop, so @songadaymann took the video and turned it into an ad for #MedicareForAll

Rent in DC may be high, but not so much in conservatives' heads.

Future generations of Americans will be thankful for our efforts to humanely regain control of our borders and thereby preserve the value of one of the most sacred possessions of our people: American citizenship. -From President Reagan's Remarks at Ceremony for Immigration Reform and Control Act. November 6, 1986

A Reagan Legacy: Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants

This was the model for the 2006 and 2013 Immigration Bills both of which passed the senate with over 60 votes. All of which provided a pathway to citizenship and none of them had a stupid and useless wall.
They found 60 votes in the Senate in 2006 and 2013" for immigration legislation, and "each time the House Republican majority refused to take it up

So, the modern US Democratic party is now as right-wing as the Republicans were in the 80s? That's not really something to crow about.

Clearly political platforms, political parties, change. Political allegiances, I think, not so much.
