She at least had some fashion lines. Daddy ensured she got all of that, yeah. Pop culture sure latched onto her for a few years.>>338228
As wealth is increasingly funneled upward to the wealthy in increasingly brazen ways, the ability to live your life unmolested is going away globally. But, this is not class politics general, this is local politics general.
Far more interesting is the fucking awful state of my local election, which our choices are:
1) Incumbent ultra-centrist democrat techbro working for the local big corporation. A vote for me is a vote for more gentrification, more dedication of resources to the aging, wealthy voting base that wants to turn out to every election socially.
2) Woke? Black pharmacist who put just, the most minimal effort into campaigning. Literally a one-page substance-free virtue signalling wordpress page that self describes as "not actively campaigning". I can't even meaningfully tell you what her politics are, other than she likes representation.
Uncontested. Your only vote is for an ultra-centrist democrat who will do all the things the incumbent mayor is already doing.
Fix some existing roads, and not do what every really, desperately wants statewide: an actual fucking train system for local transit, the one we keep voting for and then mysteriously disappears after the initial planning.
Build some more parks to make them more accessible to the (other) middle class part of town. It's actually a pretty park they've planned, though.
All in all, shit election but at 5% turnout I feel like the bonds will probably pass. They usually do.
