Don't absolve the Republicans of "anti-americanism". Do you think invading and fighting an insurgency in Afghanistan for nearly 20 years supports the national interest? How about invading and destroying Iraq? What's that done for the people of the USA?

How about Kodak getting $700 million from Trump & Jared? Of course the CEO get's 1.5 million shares the day before this is announced. I recall the outrage when Solyndra took the American people to the cleaners after Obama gave them hundreds of millions. Where are all the Trump supporters on this and on Trump's "vaccine czar" who had a complete financial conflict of interest in hyping vaccine "test results"?

“...critical theory and its derivative critical race theory, which is what the specific “anti-racism” oppressor hierarchy model that dominates the current discourse is based on. Its origins trace to a group of German Marxists called The Frankfurt School who came to New York and settled in Columbia University in the early 1950s. They created Critical Theory and its derivative Critical Race Theory.”

What role have Marxists played in the “intellectual” underpinnings of all the political divisiveness that we see through the decades? Who are the modern versions of Locke and Hayek and why don’t their political philosophy have as much resonance among the common man today as it did among 18th century Americans?

blue peacock,

'Eastman Kodak on Monday granted its executive chairman options for 1.75m shares. One day later, the Trump Admin. announced a $765m financing deal and the stock soared, making those additional options worth tens of millions.'

Grifters on the federal, state, county government teat occur across administrations of both parties and Trump’s is no different.

Bass represents the LA area - you really don't want to be like LA. She is of no particular note or distinction in this state - other than being a dedicated inside player. Which means she is 100% fungible with most of the poltical players in this state.

Critical Race Theory is not in the least connected to the Frankfurt School. It is fully a US tradition with its origins in Harvard and in law vs social science. ...

Neither did the Frankfurt Schol come to the US in the early 1950s. The Institute of Social Research was founded in Frankfurt, Germany in 1924. Between 1933-1945 the Institute was moved to the US. Some of the scholars like Marcuse remained in the US others like Adorno and Horkheimer returned to Frankfurt.
