I may be a bit biased here, but Uber did not fix anything. Uber used the force of very high financing (bribes and immunity to fines) to intrude into taxi markets where the existing competition was highly regulated, while totally ignoring regulations themselves. Hardly a free market concept.


If I can go from point A to B at half the cost, and get picked up in a few minutes, why would I use a regular taxi?

Of course Muslims kill other Muslims as an astonishing rate as well, for being Shiite, or for attempting to leave the religion, or for not being dressed in a black cloth bag, etc. Muslims are the biggest victims of Islam.


Too many Muslims are bred just to kill for their cause. If they run out of infidels to kill, they will kill each other. That's how it's always been, and that's how it always will be.
I dare anyone to prove me wrong.

Because when Mr. Uber runs off the road and hits a pole, who you going to sue to pay for your broken leg when HIS insurance doesn't cover commercial transport in his car?


Uber is insured. I have health insurance. My insurance company would deal with that.

In other words, as CEO & Chairman of the board, Buffet gets to spend more money than any normal billionaire's market cap on growing and expanding his holdings and as many know, Berkshire Hathaway pays no dividends to its shareholders, all of the dividends under the umbrella are Warren's for his business operations.


Buffet pays $10 for a haircut, and dines on burger and fries. He will have a hard time spending $100 billion.

It gets so old hearing people talk economics as if it will be tomorrow,as it is today.
Well,I guess they are right. The world has never experienced any economic problems.

My people came to me and some others, they said they think it’s Russia,” Trump said Monday, while standing next to Putin. “I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

On Tuesday, he said he meant to say he didn’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.

He said he realized he needed to clarify his statement.

“I came back and I said, ‘What is going on? What’s the big deal?”’ Trump said. “So I got a transcript I reviewed. I actually went out and reviewed a clip of an answer that I gave, and I realized that there is a need for some clarification.”


I do not understand Trump's love for Putin. Putin is a first class criminal, asshole, and trouble maker.

Logan, based on your charts. If nothing crazy happens, it’ll be good times out here in good old USA?

You can always judge the good times by the moans of the socialists. The more they moan, the better are the times.

What don’t you understand? Plenty of people say those same things about Trump


What good has Putin done as a dictator for the last 20 years, for Russia or the World?
Russia is a miserably failed country that keeps trying to flex it's muscles in the hopes that someone will think it's still a superpower. It's dependent on natural resources and armaments for it's exports. Produces nothing worthwhile except vodka, most of which they consume and get drunk on. It's economy is a small fraction of ours. Even India has a GDP twice the size on Russia.
Trump, on the other hand, is fixing the NK problem, the Islamic problem, and our economy is sizzling hot. There is no valid comparison between Trump and Putin.

I thought tariffs were going to starve America's Working Families!

Instead we have lower prices, and now the Globalist Left is complaining about that!


The soybean farmers will stop producing too much soybeans, and switch to other profitable products. When the tariffs are lifted, you will have a surge in demand, prices will shoot up, and the socialists will complain....."MAGA MAGA. The greedy capitalists are selling our food to the Chinese, and making us pay what we cannot afford. They don't care if our children starve. Impeach Trump the traitor"

Instead of taking the money from the rich as taxes, we borrow it from them, paying them 3% interests.
Big difference.


The rich never got rich by investing at a long term 3% rate of return, where 2% gets lost by inflation, and the rest (probably more) through taxes.
Most of the borrowings from the fed is through the government itself, other countries, and corporations looking to temporarily park their money.
Eventually, all that borrowing ends up being the responsibility of the rich, because the poor don't have money.

we actually have more job openings than people looking for work


We are doing so good with jobs that it's actually gonna hurt business. They can't find all the employees they need.
Slow down, Trump. Calm down a bit with the prosperity.
Oddly, the welfare queens still can't find jobs. I can only wonder why.

More housing in SF threatens some people’s penthouse views


Buy them out. If thousands of new homes can be built, just buy out the people who will lose views. It's only fair. It won't make much of a difference if the cost is spread out over thousands of new homes.

If the original poster was sending his post from a desktop computer, his very action of posting was the result of trickle-down: trickling from a $10,000 command-line business machine that all the best known industrial leaders at the time "knew" nobody would ever want one for home, down to a sub-$500 device that he could post from.

If the original poster was sending his post from a smart phone, his very action of posting was the result of trickle-down: trickling from a $5000 brief-case phone that only the C-level executives could afford (and could only make phone calls) down to a handy multi-functional device found in the pockets of even the poorest members of society today.

Private entrepreneurs are far better at offering up goods for purchase by individuals than governments central planners are able to deliver.

Which for unfathomable reasons you must do any time someone talks about using democracy to accomplish some good for the masses.

Why do you do that?


If they were doing good for the masses I wouldn't have to do that.

"Housing is main cause of poverty in CA"

Why didn't they think of this before. Destroy all housing and you get rid of poverty. It will also solve the homeless 'problem' because everybody will be on an equal footing.

There is no reason why people cannot live in grass huts. You can build one in a day for $10 bucks. Our ancestors lived in trees, caves, and grass huts. Millions of people still do. Why can't we?

Ceffer says
You see, The Great Socialist Paradise really works!

Yup, I totally agree. The problem is those evil capitalists have so much luxury from hard work, innovation, and entrepreneurship, that every socialist now wants the same. They just want it without earning it, just because they went through the hassles of being born.

Isn't this like a form of slavery? You can get education, but in exchange you have to sell us % of your future. More clever way to fuck students over?

Why would anyone work? If you don't work, government covers you 100%, so you can cash earn. If you do work, no help, and you owe % of your earnings.

Seems like a bad idea to me.


No Fortwayne, we need highly qualified scientists, engineers, researches, etc etc to make new discoveries, invent life saving drugs, etc etc etc.
The greatest investment of all is investing in knowledge. Sure, you could be a loser and let the government support you for life like the stupid welfare queens with no brains or skills. But their welfare check comes from high wage earners who got the right skills/education.
If those useless, lazy, welfare queens were born 300 years ago, or in a developing country like Sudan, they would either be dead from starvation, or working 18 hours 24/7 just to feed their 6 children. Will they ever thank capitalism and the progress it provided? No. They become loser socialists, because they think money grows on trees.

I think it's a great idea. Colleges will be forced to offer majors that pay well. Music majors, arts, sports majors, are a fucking waste of money. It's not education, it's a hobby. People should pay for their own hobbies.
The most horrible waste is sports majors. LOL. Sports is an education? WTF. How many sports majors make more than minimum wages?

My daughter is starting community in the fall. We had the option of paying $20k to Cal State Long Beach, and quickly passed on that horse shit. Good to see we aren't the only ones saying no to massive debt, and that colleges thinking outside the box in a useful way for once.


That is actually the smart way to go. Half the college courses are Gen ED anyway.

Think about it. This will make education more expensive in a long run.
Because all it does is shuffle who pays, but does not create incentive to get a job. In fact it removes incentives to get a job.

- Percent of wages means, lots of those losers will apply to get "FREE" education but not a job after.
- Because it's financially better to be on welfare than to get a job. Getting a job to them means = lose welfare, lose free apartment, lose government paying utility bills, lose food stamps, and pay % of income to schools.

Very good point. If the cost of student loan defaults can be passed on to the school, they will make sure only the right students with the right majors will be offered loans.
As a tax payer, I don't want to pay for defaulted student loans.

In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission and California Coastal Conservancy, on the other, to allow the public to get to a small stretch of the beach. But you won’t be able to walk, ride a bike or drive to it. Instead, beachgoers will have to brave a two-mile sea trip by surfboard, kayak or boat.


That's not a settlement. The government basically gave away public beaches to the wealthy. Fucking corrupt government employees.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
