  1. NYT is apparently a Right Wing mouthpiece Not according to data from the world bank: It checks out: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-30/venezuela-raises-monthly-minimum-wage-for-sixth-time-in-2018 Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro ordered a 150 percent increase in the monthly minimum wage, the sixth hike this year, to 4,500 sovereign bolivars from 1,800. The increase will go into effect Dec. 1, while the price for the Petro cryptocurrency will rise from 3,600 sovereign bolivars to 9,000, Maduro said on state television. The minimum wage is pegged to the Petro price. At the black market rate, the new minimum wage comes out to $9.50 per month. $9.50 per month??? That's a minimum wage? They may as well not have one. Max bought 4 chocolates for $1, so minimum wage in Venezuela is 38 pieces of chocolate per month. So, 700,000 workers working in co-ops in a country with 32 million means what? The NYT spinmeister runs out of ammo there, but keeps spinning: Funny how government overspending only affects places like venezuela. According to this site, Japan spends more relative to GDP than any country on earth. https://tradingeconomics.com/country-list/government-debt-to-gdp Venezuela is so far down on the list I had to use "find" to find it. Yet Japan has a strong currency and no inflation. Oh, well, then what was the point of bringing up co-ops in the first place? Explain Japan please! No one has printed more than Japan, yet no inflation. Price inflation is a function of supply of product and demand for product. Period. Money supply is not a variable in the equation except to the extent that it affects demand. The price inflation (money deflation) in Venezuela is a result of fear causing people to demand more products, which drives the price higher. People are so worried about the value of their money falling that they can't wait to get rid of it, and in so doing bring about a self-fulfilling prophecy. Also couple that with supply restrictions, thanks to the US, mainly.

  2. Was the font too small? Do you think arming everyone in prison with assault rifles will reduce homicides in prison?
  3. Look at my avatar. I don't care about the president, but probably I didn't speak up because when I spoke up about the climate change hoax, it just resulted in fights with my allies, so I just ignored the whole thing. I don't push the gun rights thing too far either. Anyway, I'd prefer the president get beat in the next election than be disqualified by a technicality and then we'll never know who would have won. I'd rather Bernie beat him.
  4. See if you can find me on record alleging anything about Trump and Russia. I cringed every time I saw someone appealing to it on twitter. But I do think Putin preferred Trump to Clinton, yet I don't think he troubled himself to influence it either way.

  6. I mean there's 05:34 lots of things to condemn about Trump, 05:36 but not that. The dems shoulda listened to him. Instead they made a mountain from a molehill while ignoring the legitimate mountain.
  7. I agree! Reagan was a treasonous shill who shouldn't be counted as a president.
  8. Yeah let's see that again: Look at all the farms that went bust under Clinton LOL Look https://www.google.com/maps/search/old+oak+drive,+oh/@41.2931701,-81.8916395,27483m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en Look at the "projects" too LOL https://www.google.com/maps/@41.3068326,-81.8579081,3a,60y,252.33h,85.55t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1scdCm9Gq3Gq6Feb7o905ILA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en Look at all the cheese from all those busted farmers LOL
  9. Hitchens has the best argument: we don't have another planet on which to run the experiment.
