  1. We have steadily implemented more and more extreme versions of this right-wing Big Money voodoo economics going back to 1980, and we came within a kunt hair of blowing up the economy completely in 2008, spackled that mess over with debt and are now staring down the barrel again. Middle class incomes are stagnant while housing and education and healthcare and fuel costs have skyrocketed, benefits are gone, pensions are gone, and most of the country would be seriously financially threatened if they had to come up with a couple grand in an emergency. The proof is in the pudding, not in the gibberish of online morons. Kansas took this right-wing horsesh!t all the way to hell and back. The jury is in. The trial is over. There is nowhere for trickle-down to hide. It's obviously nonsense and doesn't work. Obviously. Proven beyond any shadow of a doubt by its dismal failure everywhere it has been tried to any degree at all. There isn't even any question at all anymore. Just trolls repeating the stuff hoping it still sounds good to somebody too stupid to know he has to vote in his own interests or somebody else will, and they'll take EVERYTHING YOU HAVE.
  2. Well, that's one strategy, I suppose. Another would be to stop the Haves from using "government" to strong-arm control of absolutely everything out of the hands of those 7 billion people, leaving them totally dependent on their corporations for everything from food to housing to medicine. WWI is a stark indicator of what is wrong with human societies: a handful of powerful people direct institutions for their own benefit, and set them against each other, and drag everyone else into their bullsh!t, and then millions of people die horrifying pointless deaths to see which of their leaders will get to stay rich and get richer, and which will become poor. And those millions will fight and die as if they have some stake in the game. "Do it fer yer kuntry!" Why? So my kuntry can turn around and tell me I'm a goddamn deadbeat for expecting those who prosper here to pay their fvcking taxes? So they can tell me we don't deserve to be able to live in our own country without having the corporations of those powerful people pushing us off our land and crushing our businesses, bribing our representatives and corrupting our courts, our legislature, our economy, even the very idea that we are supposed to be a Liberal democratic nation??? Is that why I should line up to go off and fight and die for "my" country?? So I can come back here and defend your right to steal it? Nothing shows the absolutely pointless stupid nature of allowing a few people to pull powerful strings unchecked like WWI.
  3. Isn't it amazing how the trolls seem to be "unable" to understand this? It's almost like they're deliberately repeating something that's not true-- Oh, wait....
  4. Fake News!!! I've never met Epstein!!! I don't know anything about how he died, in a federal jail...no idea. Never met these Ukrainian gangsters that paid a small fortune to my personal attorney. No idea. I don't know what you're talking about. You said that, I didn't say that. Is it me? It's him, right? Can you believe these people, folks? <sheeesh!>
  5. You've been hearing it, and people have been telling us it would never happen, and...it's actually happening! So what you heard 3 years ago was... ...exactly right! Congratulations!
  6. I personally have no questions about Trump's dealings with the mafia in casinos operating out of New Jersey. Casinos, where the games are rigged so that the house always wins...that went bankrupt somehow! That's right...a business whose model is that no matter what happens, they make money...went bankrupt. I guess they just...got unlucky??
  7. If Henry Wallace hadn't been ousted as the VP candidate, he would have become President when Roosevelt died. He was instrumental in helping build America into what it became after WWII, but was smashed by conservative big money political bosses. He was the way America should have gone post-WWII. He should be what we sound like today. Instead we have a radical right-wing blowhard dragging us into a fascist pit of hell, cheered on by ignorant fools who think they are part of a group that somehow won't be scapegoated if they ever find themselves standing in the path of that sh!t show.
  8. If Trump were a comedian, the world would make more sense. You're not supposed to elect the buffoons to be leaders.
  9. "No I didn't! <scoff> I never said that. That's so funny that you would think I would say that! Is it me? It's him, right? <smh>" Good ol' Nathan Thurm!
  10. God is Perfect. Perfectly Omniscient and Omnipotent. He knows how every single subatomic particle in the universe will function forever...or he doesn't know everything. He knows every thought you will ever have, or he doesn't know everything. He created the universe, entirely, setting every bit of that in motion, entirely known down to the tiniest most perfect detail, from the beginning of time until the end. By definition, this is the opposite of free will, which clearly does not exist. If I have any free will, and can make a decision that God has not known about forever, then God does not know everything, he is not perfectly omniscient. He does not know what I will do next.
  11. Did you not see the Bloomberg article below it? Or any of the dozens of sites reporting on the facts of Trump's proposal? Wait...if you are unable to find the basics of a well-known very public highly reported topic like this... What gives? You may as well ask for a link proving that WWII is over.
  12. No, no! He's right! Why bother coming here, Elton! All of your super well thought-out points don't get any respect! You should go somewhere where you'll be appreciated!! Bunch of ingrates around here don't know how awesome you are! Why....if they wanted to get your level of commentary elsewhere they'd have to listen to the sycophants on Fox News, or Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity! This stuff doesn't just grow on trees, you know! Take your genius commentary where the audience is worthy! Here you go: http://www.conservativesforum.com/chat.htm

  14. Tax rates for the very wealthy used to be much higher. Yes, their effective tax rates, after all is said and done, were much higher. AND the C-level types didn't make nearly what they make now relative to their employees. And yet, somehow, America prospered, competition was HEATED, the middle class was the most powerful in history. Yeah, whatever we do...let's not do that again!! All those middle class people actually thought they had a right to decide how the government would work!! I think that's called SOCIALISM and it's an extremely dirty word!! Naughty!!
