People are heavily a product of their times

Yes, including Hitler.

Concentration camps were not a societal norm. Neither was executing homosexuals. Neither was executing the mentally ill. Neither was trying to take over the world. I think it's disingenuous to say Hitler was simply going along with society.

And that direction is keeping stocks pumped up and RE too...fuck the working stiffs, vets, seniors on fixed income and the homeless.

Nope, that's the wrong direction. That's what you got when you put Republicans in charge. I can name the policies point by point.

Hmmmmmm....what would you call someone who ignores a religion whose millions of adherents have killed tens of thousands of civilians worldwide in the last five years, including hundreds in the United States, while decrying the threat of 10,000 fanatics who are responsible for killing one person and seem incapable of organizing to kill more, and worse yet, spreading the blame across the entire race of 100's of millions?

Don't know but I would call what you posted a lie. No one has killed more terrorists than Obama. He also got Bin Laden which I'm sure is going to be a thorn in your side for the rest of your life.

This isn't a win for your side. If you want to be pro fuck-the-law, feel free, but it's not going to be your NRA thugs holding the guillotine handle when the fighting is over. History is crystal clear that it's almost always the communists who end up winning.

You've just given Antifa moral justification to do the same thing.

Well, if they had well-established prior use, YES!

Brilliant. So all you need to do when you wish to steal public land is have a history of using it?

steverbeaver says

what harm did they do to you, working that land for years long before you were born?

They converted a public asset to private use without paying for it thereby increasing my tax liability.

Honestly these are the end days when people are earnestly arguing that breaking the law is fine if you have a good reason. It's vile.

"assaulted federal agents by wielding assault weapons" please Iwog tell me, how do you assault some one without touching them?

Assault is always without touching someone. Although it's generally misunderstood by people outside of the legal profession, assault is a threat either visible or verbal. Battery is the crime of touching someone in a harmful or offensive way.

And Trump already proved that polling is a fancy word for lies.

No one talks more about Trump's polling numbers than Donald Trump. Is Donald Trump just an idiot because he cites the lying polls?

Let me guess, in your world no. When Trump cites Rasmussen, he's brilliant. When anyone else cites Rasmussen, they are fake news. Just fuck reality to death anytime you want because reasons.

So based on the cartoon, I'm going to conclude that China has six times more emissions than the United States and India has nine times more emissions than the United States.

Is this accurate or is the cartoon just an ignorant lie?

Trump is the most anti-worker president we've ever had.

The difference between his actions and his rhetoric are ridiculous and it seems many are blind to it.

I'll point to the legislation he signed doubling the number of unskilled worker visas as an example but there are many others. Wait until federal eminent domain is strengthened and people start losing their houses or regular folk are caught with some investment cash and it's taken away from them because asset seizure is awesome. Find out what happens when the rich get their taxes cut again and the working class are forced to pay even more for their houses because rental income is investment income and will soon be taxed at 0%.

I'll welcome one concrete example of Donald Trump doing anything for the working class but I'm sure I wont see it posted here. We're headed into hell and no one has any idea what is coming.

He lies more than any politician in history. In a political landscape known for lying. Every time I try to talk specifics, as in list the actual lies, y'all scatter like cockroaches under an overturned rock.

I'm astounded that you people keep worrying about this when half the individuals serving under Trump, including his own people, are resigning in disgust.

Incompetent narcissistic twitter boob who always lies, can't hire competent people, and has 2/3rds of the nation hating him or Elizabeth Warren might have at one time possibly claimed she had native American ancestors?

Who the fuck cares? Why is this even a thread??

The orange clown provoked North Korea into launching a missile over Japan. His tech guys just resigned because they say he's a fucktard who doesn't even understand his own cyber security. All his advisory groups were terminated because no one was willing to sit on them. Most of his cabinet resigned or was fired the first year AND NONE OF THIS IS EVEN POLITICAL!!! It's just total incompetent stupidity.

But yeah.......Lizzy might have years ago said on an application she had native American genes. WE CARE!!!!!!!!!

I'm glad you think so Roidy I'm trying like hell to make the whole political process in America void of Liberal politicians.

You're doing this by making regressive leftists a much stronger force and decimating support for your chosen candidate. The clown show is so extreme that you have personally made Antifa a force in the USA when prior they were just a minor nuisance.

What comes next is further failures and more mocking as Trump's support and therefore the support of everything you believe in comes crumbling down.

That's brilliant. So charities don't want to piss off what is probably now 60% of the people who donate to them because of the connection with Donald "Orange Assclown" Trump and your take on it is "Fuck them, don't give them any more donations."

The woman can then declare that her child is yours when it isn't, refusing a DNA test, and tap you for child support anyway for a triple con.

Generally not.

However that's not going to happen because a woman who is on the prowl for a wage slave isn't going to risk having sex with someone else because she would be scared of losing everything if the wrong guy got her pregnant.

Of course some women are ridiculously slutty so go by the old standby: Don't put your dick in crazy.

What about Obama tweeting about Trayvon Martin before he knew any of the facts bringing the case to a national level and sparking the BLM movements.

Yeah......OBAMA messed things up with those silly tweets. Haha I get it!

- So race relations continue to deteriorate to a FAR larger degree than under Obama.
- International relations continue to deteriorate to a FAR larger degree than under Obama. Looks like we're forcing the Russians out of San Francisco now.
- The economy will soon be in recession if not outright depression.
- No one will work with Donald Trump because of his incompetence including many of his own choices.
- Health care policy is in shambles and there's no clear direction from the Republicans on what to do next.
- Trade policy is in shambles with Trump saying he'll repeal NAFTA then saying he wont then saying he will again until the next country sucks his dick.
- North Korea has finally found a leader stupider than Kim Jong Un and will use Donald Trump to justify escalating war with the world.

Quite a record for his first year. So what's next?

On blue collar workers:

- Foreign unskilled work visas have doubled, legislation signed by Trump.
- Trump's labor secretary pick, Andrew Puzder, openly opposes overtime pay and employee breaks.
- Trump just scrubbed all OSHA data from their website so no one knows how many worker deaths there are anymore.
- By letting Obamacare fail from lack of funding but not replacing it,(Trump unilaterally eliminated enrollment penalties) Trump has shut down healthcare investment and has left many employees without any options.

But don't worry folks, he's a great deal maker. Things will clear up soon!!

I'm sure they will come up with male sex dolls with throbbing dicks too. Just imagine a male dick that can pump away like the energizer bunny.

Yes but that doesn't matter. Women need men to survive and they trade sex. Men need sex so they trade material support. Removing a woman's sole stock in trade is not going to have good consequences and will cause panic.

It's a dirty little secret that it's only men and not women who make this 1st world lifestyle possible.

This may be a reason why authorities feel it's necessary to push up housing prices (and healthcare and education) but doesn't explain how the market goes up.

This conspiracy isn't real. It doesn't exist.

Housing prices are a function of pure economics. The richer you make the top 1%, the higher home prices will go.

The problem is and always has been increasing wealth disparity. Higher home prices are an illusion. They aren't real. What's REALLY happening is regardless of what job you hold, you're being forced down into serfdom. It's economic relativity. To YOU it looks like prices are going too high so you look for reasons why this is happening and think about how to stop it. However from the perspective of the aristocracy, you simply can't keep up anymore and you're becoming poorer and poorer.

Heraclitusstudent says

This may be part of the problem but only inasmuch as the rich buy and hold empty houses. If they buy and rent as investments, it can't be a factor: If there was as many housing units on the market for sales + rentals as needed, then by definition everyone should be able to rent or buy, competing only based on what they actually earn.

This argument doesn't wash and I'll list several reasons why:

1. The ability to rent doesn't mean you have the ability to own even if your rent is equal to PITI. Someone living paycheck to paycheck will never have a down payment.
2. The VAST majority of homes held by the rich for rental purposes were purchased for far less than the current value. With a few hiccups lasting less than 4 years each, real estate has gone up every single year since World War II. This has made initial cash flow irrelevant to many RE investors.
3. Investment income is taxed at 15%. This has historically made investing in real estate an extremely valuable tax mitigation tool for the rich. The ability to depreciate a 30 year asset is as valuable as gold.

Heraclitusstudent says

And even if the rich bought and held empty houses, it could still be offset by more supply.

Not in California. Besides the rich are hoarding land as well and they ask a steep penalty to play this game.

Yes, but women have skills like taking care of kids that are just as important for all societies including 1st world ones.

Not correct. As a rule, all children survive in a 1st world economy. They might not survive mentally intact but that's an artificially imposed standard and not an evolutionary one. The ONLY RULE in evaluating evolutionary psychology is does the individual survive and create more offspring?

Women have successfully countered their depreciation in child rearing value with a new religion called feminism that seeks to drive the value of men lower in they eyes of the public. They have been partially successful however I think they are at the end of their rope on this one.

Obama still engage in torture. Gitmo is still open. That's an epic fail.


There is no evidence that torture occurred at Gitmo under the Obama administration. In fact there's an executive order on the books the first year he took office prohibiting it including water boarding.

Given the lack of transparency at Gitmo and in our government in general, that's not nearly good enough.


Then I'll ask the question. Obama as commander in chief gave a very public order to the entire military: "No more torture" Which person in command decided to risk his career to violate that prohibition?

Or do you think Obama secretly ordered torture to continue despite making an order he never had to make in the first place? It seems like you're convicting him based on no evidence and despite ample evidence to the contrary.

I'm guessing that some stupid judge someplace (Hawaii) will force this to the Supreme Court, which will side with Trump again.


That wasn't one of the choices. I'm ask you what you want Trump to do. He announced the end to DACA, the Republicans formally asked him not to, and now the ball is in his court.

Do you stand for anything at all or do you just follow your demagogue? I'd really like to know if you can even render an opinion before Trump tells you what to think.
