    Educating our kids and started taking ab pay?? No direct answer or concrete plan. Listen to andrew yang who has more solid answers.

          He's to the bone with Education... And I love it!
          Bennett may not be ready to be President, but He would make a Hell of a good Secretary of Education.

                      We have to suck it up and have more density?? NO!! That’s part of the problem with our city culture! Cramming people into dense environments is NOT healthy for long term development. This sounds more like a promise to builders to give them contracts to build shitty, cramped, close-quarters, and CHEAP housing. HAVING a home is important, but you’re not serving long term health of people by cramming them into densely populated spaces. Humans need the sense of agency that comes from feeling they have privacy and space to retreat to when they’re tired, worn out emotionally, or feeling vulnerable after a shitty day at work, or just plain want peace and quiet!

                        The Black Daily Show! Good for you Trevor!!! Do you hate your white side? I hope you dont! Because you are a privileged 1/2 black/white dude. So. Can you talk about hate and that it is bad? Oh right. It is only hate if you are white. Thanks!

                            Its ironical but true, when late night show ask the correct questions, provide better platform for the candidates contesting the highest office in the land and we get to hear their views, whereas on any news channel, all you see is people looking for gossip and throwing shade on others or bickering about useless comments

                                people make fun of these guys and gals for not being the chosen ones, but when you actually listen to them and think for yourself they make good points

                                  he doesn’t really strike me as Presidential, but then again Donald Trump has been President for almost 4 years and that’s become to norm so...

                                    Not to mention, how are we ever going to get and retain high quality STEM teachers when the salaries don't come anywhere close to what those people could make working in places like Silicon Valley, LA, or NY. Teach math and have a max salary of $100k halfway through your career, and that's if you have a PhD, or go work in tech and have that be your starting salary and unlimited potential to make more? And which do you think students who are the first and only people in their families to have a shot at breaking out of poverty would choose? Those are the people we need in classrooms because they are usually better equipped to empathize with some of the most difficult struggles kids can experience. And that's one of the reasons most teachers are straight white women. There are a lot more of them who have socio-economic backgrounds (family, a partner who has a well paying job...) that allow them choose a profession as thankless as teaching than anyone else.

                                      You gotta salute than man cause he understands the trouble that the common people, you and I face, even though I'm not American and don't relate to the most issues they face but I think every country especially developing countries could really benefit from someone like him

                                        When a politician says" we gotta figure out... ...... .", He's totally full of shit and doesn't have a clue on what to do. I like the guy who says " This is what were going to do" -

                                              I was waiting for him to give an actual example of what he intends to do for teachers, and like usual, he lays out this politician style vague description of the issue and ramifications, but NO SOLUTION. This is why I won't vote for him or any candidate that doesn't actually offer ideas, and instead wastes time with vague double-talk.

                                              If you actually support this guy after seeing this, then you weren't really listening or paying attention, nor are you asking the right questions like "How do you intend to do that?"

                                                I live in Denver, so for the record, I remember he was the superintendent of Denver Public Schools (immediately) before becoming a senator. His administration was known for closing struggling neighborhood schools (including Manual High School, which historically served Black students) and replacing them with charter schools. Still, I like him more than Hickenlooper. Bennet has a better ability to read the room.

                                                    Listening to Senator Bennet answer questions you forgot to ask shows his confidence and understanding of issue at hand. Send those Questions to grandpa Donald. The answers will be more confusing.

                                                      Two Hong Kong police officers were caught red-handed when torturing a 62yo detainee arrested for assault on police (reported to be unrelated to the anti-ELAB movement) at the isolation ward of North District Hospital. The hospital sent the video footage as evidence to Legislative Councillor Lam Cheuk-ting. Lam released the video at a press conference today with the detainee's sons to show how their father was tortured for at least 20 minutes.

Reminds me of the old board game "What shall I be?" (which also included flight attendant, actress, model, and ballerina). Anytime someone gets nostalgic about what a great world we had in the 60's, I think of that game and laugh.

It is such a stark contrast between all candidates and Trump. Any candidate would be world's better
