  1. Yeah, well, I'm anything but a Republican.
  2. I ran from a debate? More likely someone spammed it off my radar or I didn't give enough of a crap to respond to your citations from authority with even more counter citations. I know I won't change your opinion. I'm not going to bother refuting every wrongheaded assertion you make. Other things to do.
  3. Ahhh....the great canard. Military spending is not government spending. Conservative BS at its finest. Talk about stupid.
  4. Greed is both why capitalism works and why it fails. Greed is good. Too much greed is horrific. Why everything flows to the top 1% is very much related to that. Unrestrained greed forgets the demand side of the equation and things fall apart.
  5. Captialism doesn't fail. It's a wonderful system. The greatest economic system ever designed. Blind faith in an unrestrained free market fails every time as predicted by the father of capitalism Adam Smith. Capitalism requires government intervention to correct for monopolies, rent seeking, short termism, information inbalances, and other practices against the public good (child labor, predatory wages, ect.). Capitalism as properly understood and regulated is a great. Capitalism as espoused in the Victiorian Age, by libertarians, and many modern day Republicans is not so great.
  6. On mobile so I'm not going to answer you in full tonight. I'll get to it tomorrow should I remember between NCAA tournament games. But, are you actually citing downturns before industrialization? Are you actually saying that a global war ended the Great Depression? Guess what happened during the war? The government spent massive amounts of money. The government built factories for private businesses to produce arms. Those factories were used after the war to produce consumer goods, whcih helped lead to unprecedented economic growth. Abracadabra: Keynesian economics!
  7. OK. I can appreciate that. All I'm saying is that I don't need to see the same copied image over and over again. I don't need to see the same entire article (in violation of copyright law) over and over again. I don't need to see the same Youtube video over and over again. 'Tis pointless and makes scrolling to anything of actual substance tedious. I came here because it said "liberal" in the title. I have no desire to see the same unoriginal right-wing stuff copy pastad over and over again. Don't really need to see liberal copy pasta over and over again either for that matter. Please, make it stop. Discussion is good. Copy Pasta is not discussion. Not discussion is not good. Therefore, copy pasta is bad.
  8. OK, so I'm new here. But, can you please just make the rule or whatever about freaking making the exact same post in multiple threads over and over again. I don't care who does it. I don't care what "side" they are on. It's obnoxious. It makes this site difficult to read. If I suddenly disappear in favor of other haunts, it will be the reason why and this will happen soon without a rule. Very soon. Believe me, to quote The Donald. It adds nothing to any discussion. Why allow it?
  9. "percentage of deportations of those with criminal convictions has also increased under Obama." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/12/16/the-numbers-ted-cruz-cited-on-past-deportations-during-the-cnn-debate-were-way-off/ Facts are funny things.
  10. JFC, you're a moron. Let me make this simple: 1) Obama has deported more people than any President in history. 2) You're own damn spammy says most of the people released were done so by an order of a court. Do you not understand how our Constitution works? You want Obama to violate court orders? 3) Do you think the President personally oversees every person ICE chooses to deport or release? Do you think he can? 4) Do you not understand that many people are released pending required administrative hearings over whether they should be deported or not?
  11. Republican delusion at its finest. They say "Benghazi" 9,999 times and no one cares, but dammit, it will destroy her the 10,000th time!
  12. LOL! http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/trump-voters-aversion-to-foreign-sounding-names-cost-him-delegates/ "In an African-American majority district on Chicagos South Side, a Trump delegate named Taneequa Tolbert received 11 percent fewer votes than a slate-mate named James Devors. And in a neighboring Chicago district, a Trump delegate named Antonio Alonso received 8 percent fewer votes than a slate-mate named Michael Burke. In these two instances, Trump still swept all three district-level delegates because no other candidates delegates came close. Of the seven Trump delegate candidates with minority or foreign-sounding names, all seven were among the dozen worst-trailing Trump candidates in the state: Sadiq, Fakroddin, Tolbert, Alonso, Uribe, Sandra Yeh and Rolando Arellano. The 47 Trump delegate candidates with Anglo-sounding names tended to garner far more votes."

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?

  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.

    Being offended does not make one correct.
