My favorite part of this is the guys claiming Trump is Hitler talking about who is and isn't an "inferior human being".   You are a bunch of silly people.

Politics / JFK vs BHO / View Post
JFK was probably just as much of a dunce as Obama.  I think a good analogy to every president is a non-life threatening gunshot wound.  

It sucks at first, it is ugly, and dangerous.  After the fact, you can look at the scar and say, "hey that wasn't so bad", and "hey, look at this cool scar".

I think I am scared of
Sanders, HRC, Trump, Bush, Rubio, Cruz,  (the GOP Field),  and Gary Johnson in that order. 
 I will be voting for Gary Johnson most likely. 
again.

Don Juan,
Trump Likes guns,  Stay over on your side.

After exhausting the race card during the Obama administration, it is going to be helpful to have Trump as a president to remind America what a racist really looks like.

There is not an easy answer to that.  Republicans and Democrats are both owned by the banks that used predatory lending to hook these poor schmucks to mortgages they could not afford.  

Relaxing lending standards because of race etc.  That was only one facet of the plan. 

Another could be the easy loans that building companies were getting.

They also needed low interest rates via the FED. 

Whether you want to cry about the Koch brothers, or sorros.  Goldman or JP Morgan, The rich, or the disaffected poor, you have to some day wake up and realize that Republicans and Democrats are about as real as WWE. They are both working against the interests of middle America.

We are going to get a rich person that works for the banks and appeals to people with the intellect of howler monkeys.

I know very little about the guy, just what I hear in American Media, but isn't he a super liberal rich kid?

I understand business, and that all is not as black and white as people want it to be, but even still...


So you are advocating a minimum wage based on the amount of money the business makes. 

Like a mandatory minimum wage that applies at different rungs of profit? 

I don't know if I hate that.  Completely. 

I think it would drive all talent to the larger companies/ corporations and create a "brain drain" in small business, but if we have to have a minimum wage.  That would probably be a more fair way to apply it.

Look at North Dakota.  I think (I have heard, I don't have Real #s) but the Fast food workers in ND are making 15 because they can't attract labor for less because of the booming gas situation there. 

There are places that could facilitate 15 for sure, but not when the government makes an artificial floor.

One intervention leads to another. 

I wonder if true price discovery would benefit the worker if jobs did not have the archaic minimum wage to act as a floor for wages. 

I bet metropolitan wages would sharply increase fairly quickly, and rural wages would probably stay somewhat close to the artificial level. 

I know Don Juan believes that such action would cause feudal lords, I don't.

The government now owns the medical field, so thank God it is efficient, everyone can afford it, and nobody will ever die.

This is  tired elitist meme.   

Yes, we understand socialism.  We have many socialist policies already in our country, and we are allies with a number of socialist countries. 

Stop stroking your ego and pretending that you are the keeper of some rare secret about socialism.  It is all around us, and has been for quite some time. 

Stop regurgitating memes that your leaders doll out to you. 

It is embarrassing. 

What would make you think that people do not understand Socialism?  Did you even think about your statement?  Every child in social studies learns about it in 7th and 8th grades.  Most college campuses tout it in European history, Post WWII history  etc.

Hey Don,

We already have riots in the streets genius, read a newspaper. 
There is absolutely no proof that a flat tax would result in that.
