There are few groups in America that Republicans love to attack more than the poor. In the minds of Republicans, anyone that isn’t wealthy is a lazy government moocher, and that’s why they want to destroy the welfare system.


There are also some groups in America, mostly Commies, who love to attack hard working successful people. In the minds of Commies, anyone who is a lazy government moocher, is exploited, and that's why they want to destroy capitalism.

I tried listening to that Jazz. It was terrible, those talking heads are like "stupid propaganda". Zero facts and a whole bunch of poorly thought out opinions with frequent insults and fallacies.

Why even bother to listen to Commie crap? It's always the same old nonsense.

FortWayneIndiana says

Sorry man, that's just too stupid to listen to. That bold headed comrade should go work for North Korea, he doesn't understand basic economics and incentives.

That's why I don't bother to click on those videos unless I need a laugh.

What would Rep/Cons do if govt. handouts/subsidies were suddenly taken away from them?


They would do the same thing democrats would do. Get a fucking job.

Not taxing gas only results in ExxonMobil stock skyrocketing. Which stocks would be better for mankind? Fossil fuels or Solar fuel?


I don't think Solar can produce enough energy to sustain our markets. In time it will, maybe something much better will come along. But until then gasoline works. I have a gas car, and like most Americans would be fucked with taxes.

So why not support solar? We all know you can't eliminate gasoline in one day. Bad mouthing something that eventually helps mankind makes no sense at all.

FortWayneIndiana says
Government needs to stay out of this and let private enterprise settle the markets without collusion. Long ago we used whale oil for energy, once gasoline came about it replaced fish oil (cheaper, more efficient, etc...). Solar is probably the next step, but right now it's too shitty of a tech to replace gasoline. Otherwise it would have done it by now.

Exactly. That is why the government should stop subsidizing Big Oil. Why complain about solar subsidies, if you are OK with oil subsidies?

If you hate Islamic terrorism, you must hate fossil fuels.
If you hate paying for gas, you must hate fossil fuels.

If you hate any of the above, but still love fossil fuels, WTF is wrong with you?

We have forgotten that the constitution guarantees opportunity, not outcome.


And if they don't make it, it's someone else's fault. "I worked hard. I still did not get a living wage. I want more. I want more. How come they make millions. They cheated us. We are exploited. We want communism. Civil war. Attack the rich. Attack attack attack. Now."

And then there are those, whose kids are sick all the time, trouble makers, don't do their work, etc.

No kid will be perfect. Their parents are certainly not perfect, you can't expect kids to be perfect. There comes a time when every parent will think the stork delivered that kid to the wrong address. There are times when you know kids are the best thing that ever happened to them. I am extremely proud of my two brats.

Rin says

So far, I've only heard the above from less than 50% of the ppl I know and many of them were from the older boomer generation, not the younger ones.

If that was true, 50% of the parents would not go for a second child. Anecdotal evidence of 50% that you present are people you hang out with who have similar views as you do.

So lets figure out how to have more decent jobs and not too many poor people.


The solution to more decent jobs is simple. Booger mentioned it. Take advantage of the opportunities offered to all by this country. If you don't, it's your fucking problem, please don't come whining to me. If you cannot work and need help, you deserve and will get help.
There will always be losers who deserve no help. The only help they deserve is getting their butt kicked.

Yes, they want their children to be like Mohammed, the terrorist founder of Islam, who robbed, raped, and murdered his way to power. This is historical fact.


Mohammad is the "Perfect Muslim" why wouldn't Muslim parents want their children to be perfect?
To us, Mohammad was the perfect terrorist. We don't want people who want to be like him among us.

This was a favorite of the Mitt Romney campaign. Throughout 2012, Romney repeatedly said, "The president promised to cut the deficit in half. He's doubled it!" No. No he hasn't. First of all, this line depends entirely on voters not understanding the difference between the deficit and the debt. See previous "simpleton" remarks. Indeed, the president has absolutely cut the deficit by way more than half in his first five years. When he took office, the deficit for 2009 was projected to be $1.4 trillion. The deficit at the end of 2014 will be $514 billion, just three percent of GDP. That's a nearly $1 trillion reduction in five years.

And what was the actual deficit in 2008 when Obama took office? Was that cut in half compared to 2007? Cherry picking data, huh?

jazz_music says
Every dollar spent on unemployment benefits generates 1.61 in economic growth.
Every dollar spent on food stamps generates 1.74 in economic growth.

Wow. So if we put everyone on food stamps, economic growth would go up like crazy.

jazz_music says
4) Obamaphones!

Okay, just stop it with this. No, the Obama campaign wasn't handing out free phones in exchange for votes. However, there's definitely a program that offers low-cost telephones to citizens who can't afford one. The truth is the Lifeline program has been around since 1984 when, that's right, Ronald Reagan helped to create it.

Ronald Reagan helped create free cell phones for everyone? Wow. I thought cell phones were only for the rich at that time. and you guys still hate Reagan?

1) Voter Fraud Is a Serious Issue That Requires Strict New Voter ID Laws.

Nope. Not even close. Once again, this falls into the Lloyd Christmas category. Successful prosecutions of voter fraud cases barely amount to one one-hundredth of one percent of total votes cast in a single general election. In Ohio, for example, Secretary of State Jon Husted ballyhooed his war against fraud by nabbing a whopping 20 potential cases. 20 out of nearly six million votes cast in that state in 2012.

And what about California, Texas and Arizona that you forgot to mention? I'm sure it wasn't intentional.

jazz_music says
That's it. It's of course foolish to think the Republicans will drop these lies and myths any time soon. But as long as various Republicans continue to repeat these transparently obvious falsehoods, they should expect that the rest of us will continue to think they're either idiots or that they're deliberately trying to deceive their own people — or maybe a little of both.

I agree. They are idiots. When is the Civil War you keep promising, I want to sign up. I want everything for free too. Scumbag Republicans say it's only for the needy.

Also consider the Islamic propensity for inbreeding. Not sure what it is about Islam that makes people marry their first cousins, but the Saudis are just about the most inbred people on earth:


When the entire population becomes feeble-minded, the country will simply collapse.


It’s a Religious Conservative thing. The same can be observed here in the States. The more Religious Conservative one is the more likely they are to be incestual

@Patrick why are you censoring the truth again? Fucking pathetic how far you have fallen down the Anti American rabbit hole


The same cannot be observed here in the States. It's an Islamic thing. Fucking first cousins is the first choice in inbred freaks in the Mid East and Pakistan.

Jazz is right. Please give him credit. Voters don't know the difference between deficit and debt. Lets get it straight.
Deficit happens when you give more to able bodied freeloaders, than you can extract form hard working Americans.
Debt is what happens when you screw future hard working Americans, by giving more to able bodied freeloaders today.

As for birth rates, didn't it halve between the 1960s and today? I believe that a lot of ppl are quitting after 1 kid these days. The days of 2.x kids per household are over. And I believe in the past ten years, it's been trending down from even 1.8.


At some point in the future underpopulation will be the problem for the whole planet.

1) Healthcare is a right
No it's not a right. Someone has to do the work, you don't have a right to someone else's work.


Eventually, Health care, Education and opportunities will, and should be a right just like food, clothes and shelter is a right today. Health care, education and opportunities for all will go towards helping mankind progress. I understand we are not ready for that today, but eventually it will be a norm. My concern is, we should not give enough to losers who want to do nothing. That's just money down the drain.

I think there is nothing "hindu" in her thinking. It is all liberal insecurities taught to her which triggered this response.

Ramayana is staged in South-east asia by "Asians" no hindu complains about it. Ramayana is staged in Russia by locals no hindu complains. This show is from ISKON.which is mostly "white" people. I think her complaint is because she does not want white hindus.

I think she is just stupid.

It's not a "right" if it can be denied? Reality is that any product or service that someone has to make or perform, can't be a right. Because that requires slavery, forced labor, compulsion. If you are talking about years into the future when robots are doing ever...


I understand your point, but welfare to the truly needy is not a right either. We can't let 80 year old, penniless widows die on the streets. We can't let kids go without education, or else we end up with a society with no skills, no education, a lot less entrepreneurs, few venture capitalists, scientists, and successful people that pay taxes.
My point is, we as a society need to extract as much potential from every member of society in order for all of us to progress. To do that we need to provide basic necessities to all, because we don't know who will discover a cancer cure, the next amazing product like the iPhone, or be the next Einstein.

I would imagine most losers become extreme Lefties. They think they deserve a "living wage" even if they don't want to work, and are on welfare.
Hello? If you are still living, you must be getting some kind of a living wage. If you are overweight, you need your food stamps cut in half.

Ronald Reagan helped create free cell phones for everyone?


Yes he did, it's called the life line program which gives cellphones to the poor. So next time someone lies to you and tells you Obama created the life line program you can set them straight and say

"the Life line program - the program that gives free cellphones to the poor - was created in 1984 under Ronald Reagan's leadership"


I was a poor student in 1984, how come I didn't get a free cell phone?

Yes. Tax cuts and government spending. It's called borrowing from the future. But I don't think it took off even as much as it should have for that amount of tax cut stimulus.

Probably the reason it didn't do what you would expect from that amount of stimulus is the uncertainty about the President mental stability.


I actually think the economy took off too much too soon. Trump still wants to create more jobs, when jobs available exceed job applicants by a million. Trump needs to cool off a bit or else inflation will start up again. Can't say that about Obama, a President who could not inspire enough confidence in the business world.

Yeah, it obviously couldn't be that it took time to pay down debt, clean up balance sheets and build steam again. Work our way out of a wierd zero interest rate envirnment in which money wasn't really being lent out to businesses. not just at the national level.


It couldn't be, and wasn't what you state. It was Trump being elected that jump started a stalled economy, as can be seen with the stock market shooting up within hours of his victory. You think that was just a coincidence?

Lack of confidence and mistrust with Obama's policies on Wall Street was the primary cause of the stalled economy. Trump changed that in a matter of hours. It's as simple as that. Being in denial is why you refuse to see the obvious.

You tell me, in such an awesome economy, are we supposed to be running the biggest deficits ever ?


Yes, deficits in this scenario is OK. If you cut taxes today, you will have a deficit today. The growth that reduces deficits comes with a lag, because it takes businesses a lot of time to plan and set up the plants necessary to increase production. Profits and the higher tax revenues to reduce the deficits takes even longer.
It's as simple as 2 + 2.



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.
