    Boomers artificially limited local zoning laws and capped property taxes through Prop 13 in my state of California, causing the homeless crisis and turning my generation into renting surfs for the properties that Boomers own and they continue to push NIMBY policies in order that their housing prices go up as additional supply continues to get more restricted. All at the expense of Millenials who now can't find a starter home to raise a family.

    It used to be in my state that if you were a CA resident, you didn't have to pay for higher education. The youngest three generations were now told they not only had to pay and pay big but they can never get rid of the debt even if they cant pay and go bankrupt.

    There is one reason why LA can't build more than 4 stories tall and it has nothing to do with earthquakes. Boomers came in the 1960s and 1970s and decided no one else should come after them.

    Boomers rigged the game heavily back when they were the only players at the table. Now Gen X, Y and Z have to find our political feet while suffering worse economic conditions than any generation before us beside the silent generation.

    Do you never wonder why Millenials and Zoomers are so big on the socialism now?
    Fair bit of truth in that, though my generation (1964 last boomer, first contraction year depending on who you ask) has been amenable to altering the SocSec system.

    But you are assuming as yet undemonstrated (mean that literally, not snidely) selflessness among millenials and zoomers if you think current attitudes on socialism etc. are truly more than an attempt to get their own power/piece of the pie.

    Sir, if the majority of the population could be brought to act purely according to economic self-interest in their political behavior we would still have a dramatic improvement over the status quo.

    I can't tell the future, but I'm pretty sure this steady momentum behind Warren is unstoppable by now.

    Give it another month and check again, y'all non-Americans may want to start familiarizing yourselves with her candidacy if she's still the frontrunner.

    The scared bitch injected him on live television with a genetically-modified oleandrin toxin designed to be very, very long-acting. Sweet Bernie has been racing against the clock for the past four years, but he just. can't. make. it. A cowardly witch's brew fells even the heroes among us.

    There's a long way to go yet.

    Warren may be leaching polling from Sanders and Biden, and she has the advantage of being younger - and not having had a heart attack.

    Even so, she seems like the candidate Trump would want to face - because he can attack her on all fronts.

    Monty is right on that score. The Dems could run a ticket featuring Mother Theresa and Albert Schweitzer and Trump would attack and belittle. It is his MO (and possibly MV).

    After the whole Democratic debate, the Democrats apparently have learned nothing - Booker was right, what is this constant attacking and bickering between Democrats. In some ways it descended into a shouting match or a he said, she said shenanigan.

    And for some reason they all had this fixation of "I wanna be the guy who defeats" instead of "I wanna be the President who does things" and that will really annoy people.

    They are still in circular firing squad mode to be sure. But remember how early in the process we are...3 months BEFORE Iowa. It is not surprising that they are still at loggerheads with one another and there is a substantial amount of time to determine a nominee and shift to positive message mode.

    Officially it will be said that the producers needed to go to a break to fulfill their ad contracts.

    Unofficially?

    She's polling at 11th. So, effectively, she doesn't matter and the producers needed to break for an ad somewhere around that time anyway. Implicitly, they are also saying she should end her quest for the nomination. Media loves a good horse-race to cover, but they really don't like to have too many racers -- simple is easier to cover and focus on the conflict.

    Heh, funny that even such blatant cynicism sounds too charitable for the current state of CNN.

    Would be bad for them to risk having the only frontrunner not succumbing to age be given the verbal beatdown kamala harris suffered.

    Tulsi Gabbard is literally a more conservative candidate than Biden at this point.

    I hope she loses her primary.

    Alternative: Even Biden is literally a more progressive cadidate than Gabbard at this point.

    I hope she wins, for she is the democrats best chance to return from the depths of self destructive insanity.

    Of course one couldn't stand to name a single substantive thing one likes about Tulsi "Rounding Error" Gabbard. I checked out the part of the debate where Gabbard is interrupted by commercial break, and it's as I suspected: she constantly pulls this bullshit, over and over. Most people can thankfully see it for what it is.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    BURNETT: Thank you, Senator Warren.

    Congresswoman Gabbard, you're 38 years old, and you would be the youngest president if elected. Should age matter when choosing a president?

    GABBARD: I'm glad you asked, because I was going to say it's not fair to ask these three about their health and their fitness to serve as president but not every other one of us. I am grateful to have been trained very well by the Army and do my best to stay in shape.

    But here's the real question I believe you should be asking is: Who is fit to serve as our commander-in-chief? This is the most important responsibility that the president has. What Donald Trump has been doing in Syria and what we have just seen with him, inviting Turkey to come in and slaughter the Kurds, show what an unfit president looks like. It highlights how critical it is that we have a president and commander-in-chief who is ready on day one, bringing experience and understanding in foreign policy and national security.

    Bringing the experience that I have, both serving in Congress now for nearly seven years, serving on the Foreign Affairs Committee, serving on the Armed Services Committee, subcommittees related to terrorism and upcoming threats, serving on the Homeland Security Committee, the experience that I have as a soldier, serving for over 16 years in the Army National Guard, deploying twice to the Middle East, being able to serve in different capacities, joint training exercises, training the Kuwait National Guard.

    I understand the importance of our national security. I am prepared to do this job, to fulfill this responsibility as commander-in-chief on day one.

    BURNETT: Thank you, Congresswoman.

    GABBARD: I'd like to ask our other candidates this question. I'd like to start with Senator Warren...

    BURNETT: Sorry, Congressman, I'm sorry.

    GABBARD: ... what her experience and background is to serve as commander-in-chief.

    BURNETT: I'm sorry, thank you. We're going to take another break now. The CNN-New York Times debate live from Otterbein University here in Ohio will be back in just a few moments.

    (COMMERCIAL BREAK)


    Candidates, especially the very lowest polling candidates, are not entitled to take unlimited time over their limit - nor are they entitled to ask any question they want of any other candidate. Why should CNN kowtow to her whims? I doubt anyone could even "fall" for this type of stunt; it's a deliberate disinformation narrative.

    She'll probably be angling for the Greens' or Libertarians' nomination by the time the Dem primaries roll around.

    Ah, I misremembered part of it, I evidently have to ammend my statement, but not my point. They saw her go for warren and cut her off; the point of contention for this statement is not what they did but the why.

    Now, you claim the motivation is an unwillingness to indulge the also-rans, I think that is an excuse and it just so happens that testimony indicating the bias of CNN for warren and against gabbard has recently been released. Bias so blatant Warren was allowed to talk over everyone, even biden to the point where she ended up with 6 more minutes to talk than him.

    They cut her off because she exceeded her time. Even if one were so biased as to believe that they would want to cut her off for the reason of shielding Warren, the fact that they had already signaled the end of Gabbard's response before she named Warren should logically preclude that possibility.

    James O'Keefe has not offered evidence of CNN bias, and he's not even making an effort anymore if all the content he could dig up has been publicly volunteered by representatives of CNN a long time ago. When one consistently relies on organizations like Project Veritas who are long established as dedicated liars and propagandists, one shouldn't expect normal people to be taken in. It's insulting really.
