Re: Trump Impeachment Part Duex

Any other era in American history, Trump would've been hung and buried by now. Many of the insurrectionists too. Glad all the evidence is being aired out for the history books, but our descendants are going to be puzzled at allowing Trump and his merry band of traitors get away with this (as they wi...

Re: Cancel Culture thread

"Cancel culture" has been around since the dawn of man; I don't know why anyone thinks America is an exception to the rule. Every society in the history of forever shuns things it finds a threat to its principles (usually through social, economic, legal, or extrajudicial means). The only m...

Re: Imbecile Nation

I mean this in the best possible way, but the line about a high schooler not needing a livable wage comes from a position of privilege. A teenager making a livable wage can mean a big quality-of-life difference for low-income and lower-middle class families. Automation will always be around, nothing...

Re: Imbecile Nation

Yes, all jobs are worth paying a living wage; everyone should be able to live on 40 hours a week. It used to be that poverty was an issue of being unemployed, not that you weren't paid enough. If an employer can't pay a living wage, they shouldn't be in business (I think it was FDR which said someth...

Who knows how a 2021 version of FDR would have treated environmental issues. Those “BS” regulations have also improved standard of living and add value to the economy.

Re: Bargaining With Fascists?

Continuing to increase the standard of living is the entire point of humanity, everywhere in the world and throughout history.

Red is when it started: From June 1 to October 1 (four months) they had 636 deaths. From October 1 to now (four months) they've had 11,200. Lockdowns probably work. At what cost?

No state in the US has actually had a "lockdown" despite whatever we want to call them. Other nations had real ones and the data is conclusive. Like Belgium? #3 in the world for deaths per population. You want to choose Belgium as the country to prove lockdowns don't work? Red is when it ...

President Trump (and the GOP) did make things worse, significantly driving up the deficit while the GDP gained nothing to offset it. Borrowing from the future did enrich people who were already doing well though, so I guess the plan was successful. At least President Obama reduced the deficit during...
