Did you even read?

This has been debunked already. Both the RNC and DNC used video screens. The flags behind Trump were just one of the images. The DNC also had flag imagery, and real flags to the side.

Carry on.

Those two statements aren't even contradictory in any way given the mention of timing.

I don't think that's quite enough flags to convince me that The Donald gives a shit about real Americans.

Yet conversely, household debt in absolute terms is rapidly approaching levels not seen since the you-know-what hit the fan in 2008. At the end of the first quarter of this year, American households owed $12.25 trillion, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit. That’s up 1.1% from Dec. 31 — a pace outstripping anemic wage gains.

More to do with rising house prices and low interest rastes than anemic wage gains.

Factor in the value of what's backing the debts, and American household net worth is at record highs: http://qz.com/636528/american-household-net-worth-just-hit-another-record-high/

A Car Factory that employed 5000 was replaced by an RX Co that employs 500. Where are the other 4500 jobs coming from, plus a lot more to account for the massive numbers of immigrants?

Sure, but technology advancement isn't going to be stopped so that those 5000 can be car factory workers forever. People looking backwards are screwed.

What if within a generation there are no more manual jobs to do due to full robotization? Plausible? What productive work will someone uneducated in STEM be able to do?

If you think that's at all plausible, wether in 20 years or 50, there won't be a problem with outsourcing manual labor to developing countries anymore because those jobs won't be available anywhere.

Are wages for the educated skyrocketing in Britain? If not, no shortage. Shortage=higher prices (salaries).

No, but I don't think it's a zero sum game. By that logic there should never be growth in services, yet financial and business services have reached what, 80% of UK's GDP?

Hives? Education!

Factory Closed? Education!

H1-Bs taking entry level jobs from he newly Educated? Answer: More Education!

Education: It's like Dr. Wilder's New Solve-Everything Elixir for the 21st Century!

Nope, you can't fix today's problems with long term "strategic investments" but that doesn't mean they're not needed. The poor state of education in Britain is inseparable from some of the equality problems. Working classes are struggling, and the dumbed down education system is producing more of them.

Bubble 2.0 has occurred without a corresponding demand surge just like peak Bubble 1.0. As such, it means something other than fundamental, end-user demand and economics is driving prices this time too.

There was demand coupled with low inventory in the Bay Area. Have you seen rents?

I bought a place last year, 20% down, mortgage is lower than what I'd pay to rent a similar place. Now take anyone who bought earlier in the cycle... their cost to own is way lower than renting these days.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that. Trump is supporting intolerance to muslims, and increased power to security agencies. The more we destroy our own country's values in response to fear of terrorism, the more they won.

Your man Trump sounds more like another man who wanted to make his country great again (Hitler).

The Clintons give like 10% of their income to charity, which is a good amount.

What would REALLY make a difference to people in need is if the 99% gave less charity to "religion" (over $100 billion annually) and more to those in need.

That's the rent changing to reflect the current market, after being rent controlled for 9 years.

Not surprising with the lack of education. Only about 1 in 3 have a Bachelor's degree. Only about 1 in 3 of those are in STEM. Guess who's more likely to be in the top 10%?

Private insurance statistically pays out less than it takes in. None of your individual examples change that, or explain how SS could pay out more than it took in overall.

Private insurance also readjusts the premiums it charges annually to compensate for what it pays out. Just go ask anyone who just got their health insurance renewal for Obamacare and they see the HUGE jump to cover all the newly enrolled of the past year.

Exactly. If the SS fund is on track to go bankrupt, they should raise revenues or cut benefits NOW (or 10 years a go). Boomers still in work, Gen X and Millennials should be compensating for the gap. Instead they are kicking the can down the road which is essentially taking more from future generations to give to Boomers followed by X'ers.

That's an idiotic statement in the context of a discussion on social security.

Not idiotic. What happens to the boomer who dies at 65 after paying in for 50 years. How does he collect his S.S.?
