Buttigieg takes shot at social conservatives, describes coming out during Vegas LGBTQ gala
Fox News, May 12, 2019

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg took a shot at social conservatives Saturday in Las Vegas as he described the exclusion he experienced after publically coming out as a gay man.

The South Bend, Ind., mayor also spoke of the need to overcome divisions during a swing stop at a gala for an LGBTQ civil rights group. He said that LGBTQ people, women, immigrants, people of color and with disabilities and workers are experiencing a “crisis of belonging in this country.”

"What every gay person has in common with every excluded person of any kind is knowing what it's like to see a wall between you and the rest of the world and wonder what it's like on the other side," Buttigieg said during his keynote address for the Human Rights Campaign at Caesar’s Palace.

Buttigieg, 37, a former Navy intelligence officer, described coming out while mayor and preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.

"I was seized with the awareness that I could be killed in action at the age of 33, a grown man and an elected official, with no idea what it was like to be in love," he said. "I knew that I had to be who I am."

Buttigieg also took aim at the rhetoric of social conservatives.

"We have allowed conservatives to monopolize the language of freedom," he said. "But we know that freedom isn't just about freedom from, it's about freedom to. Not just freedom from regulation, but freedom to live a life of your choosing."

Exactly.  He's a one issue candidate appealing to one small group of noisy malcontents and whining about the same phony *bleep* they cry about with nothing really to offer them except patting them on their heads and saying, "I know how you feel."  he has less than nothing to offer the rest of us.

When is Pete going to talk about real issues -- the economy, the invasion of illegals and alleged "refugees," our messed up health care system, foreign relations, etc. etc.?   As a good Democrat, I'm reasonably sure he has taken up the official socialist/commie position on other issues.  But if this guy wants to be elected, he is going to have to talk about these issues with the rest of the voters.  Otherwise, the only votes he will get will be from perverts like himself.  Not enough to win the White House.

They don't really have ANY message other than

Wah-wah-wah!

Sheesh!  I am so tired of people complaining constantly about something that really doesn't exist today.  Look at all these gays, for instance, whining that they are discriminated against.   Where is this discrimination? These days most people don't really give a *bleep* what other people do in private.  As far as I know, you can get a chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A and the guy or gal behind the counter is not goin to ask you first if you are gay.  It's not a question asked of job applicants and I believe a landlord cannot by law deny a gay person an apartment.   We are bombarded with gay characters and gay themes in our entertainment.  So what's the problem? 

There really isn't any.  But these people crave attention, so they have to invent some imaginary slight -- and carry on about it constantly --, so people will pay attention.  Sorry, but I really don't care anymore.  And I believe Pete is going to find out no one other than perverts like him care either.

I honestly do not care one bit about gay people, as long as they leave me out of it.
Cannot believe how much press 'his gayness' is getting. It's weird.

Hillary's campaign was all about her vagina. This guy's campaign is all about him being into dudes.
Hard to believe how many supposedly 'serious people' consider this to be a qualification for President, or anything else for that matter. All of these "it's my turn" candidates is growing very tiresome.

The gay population is estimated to be appx. 4.5%  So, he'll probably capture those votes and then there are some that will vote for him to be politically correct.  So ... he may get 10% of the vote.  I'd say Mr(s). Butt won't be the DEM nominee.

I wonder, how does "it" identify?  Male, female or other?

I'm tired of all these squeaky wheels, especially when they blame the noise on all the other bearings out there. The noise is way out of proportion to the other moving parts of society. They want to make you think the whole engine is at fault and coming apart for a bad idler pulley bearing.
If people want to be a functioning part of society, basically all they have to do is roll up their sleeves and get in there. Work, interact with people as people, not some as arbitrary or superficial label.
In the workplace, I really don't care what people do on their off time, as long as they do what they are supposed to in their 'on' time.
In my off time I'll associate with the people who generally agree with me, philosophically, and that generally excludes people who conspicuously parade their differences from the mainstream and then whine incessantly about how they are 'excluded'.

I really weary of those who use those differences to attack the very society which has allowed them to even speak up, but even more so, am tired of those who seek to exclude the very people who 'built that'.  No, I don't think that the proportion in existence or importance comes anywhere close to the amount of noise, and ever keep in mind that those who generally regulate perceptions in this society (the media) are relatively packed with people who have a deeply vested interest in maintaining the impression that the whole shtick is more common and popular than it really is, and whose perceptions of the world are affected by the relatively small social circles they inhabit.

The Left—and I include liberals here—always fall for his urban type of persona, even if that individual lacked any substance. They don’t care as long as he checks the right liberal boxes and his demeanor is sufficiently sanctimonious.

All Buttigieg has going for him is a superficial charm, but behind that is a thin resume—to which he can now add that he had the temerity to run for President at 37, after failing as mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

And they think this guy can take Trump out? It is to laugh.

All these others are to keep us off balance.  IT IS JOHN.  I HOPE, HOPE I AM WRONG.  But he is using all of president TRUMPS plans and adding...FREE SCHOOL...FREE THAT.....the ignorant will fall for that...again.  Mention FREE...ANYTHING...and most people clamor for it, not realizing it is a LIE.  ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE.

How John Hickenlooper would address the economy

By ZACHARY WARMBRODT and NOLAN D. MCCASKILL

Hickenlooper proposes raising the minimum wage to at least $15 an hour. He also wants to tackle college affordability by cutting the federal interest rate on all student loans to 2.5 percent.

Additionally, he pledges to make community college free and “launch the biggest expansion of apprenticeships and training in American history.”

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a small businessman who opened brewpubs in Denver and across the Midwest, is unveiling his plan to boost the U.S. economy by embracing what he sees as the power of private industry.

“We can make the private sector into a stronger engine of opportunity and innovation, rather than having it continue as America’s favorite political piñata,” he will say Friday in a speech in New Hampshire.
How would it work?

Hickenlooper proposes raising the minimum wage to at least $15 an hour. He also wants to tackle college affordability by cutting the federal interest rate on all student loans to 2.5 percent. Additionally, he pledges to make community college free and “launch the biggest expansion of apprenticeships and training in American history.”
His proposal calls for creation of an “entrepreneurship tax credit” for small businesses and a “micro-enterprise tax credit” for businesses with five employees or fewer and up to $10 million in revenue. He also calls for creating incentives for startups “in rural and distressed areas,” doubling the federal earned income tax credit, taxing capital gains at the same rate as ordinary income and ending tax loopholes for “very wealthy” Americans who pass portfolios to their children.

COUNTDOWN TO 2020
The race for 2020 starts now. Stay in the know. Follow our presidential election coverage.
oadband service. He would pay for it in part by a partial repeal of the tax cuts that Trump signed into law in 2017.

Hickenlooper pushes for “an expansion of open and fair trade” and stronger anti-trust enforcement.

The plan includes “universal” health care while maintaining private insurance for those satisfied with employer-provided coverage.

What have other Democrats proposed?
Elements of Hickenlooper’s plan overlap with other candidates' proposals. Several others, for example, have endorsed the idea of a $15 minimum wage.
 
Elizabeth Warren
 
Bernie Sanders

But Hickenlooper, a centrist, stands in stark contrast to candidates such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who are offering more dramatic proposals to achieve economic equality. Sanders, for example, has proposed a federal job guarantee.

Hickenlooper makes clear he opposes ideas like the job guarantee and a government takeover of health insurance, which Sanders and other supporters of Medicare for All have backed.

“These are certainly big ideas; they are also not good ideas,” Hickenlooper says. “They would bloat the federal government. They would massively raise taxes. They would depress economic growth. And let me assure you, in the end, they would hurt working people.”

Professional victimhood is not about attention - it is about political, social and economic power.

I had thought Buttigieg had potential,  to approach this campaign for President with a message of optimism and a positive view of America.   But the Dems can't run that message anymore -  the role of professional grievant,  once donned, cannot easily be doffed.   The social progress made by gays in the last 20 years is unprecedented in human history, and yet the message must still be unrelieved grievance rather than appreciation at how far things have come, so fast.   And of course Buttigieg must link his "struggle" with that of the other Dem identity groups,  and claim that a "wall" of bigotry still defines their lives,  and America's.

Sorry, Pete,  I was listening but you've lost me.   I thought you might be different, but you're the same old shit.
