Forced patriotism is no patriotism at all. It's just like kneeling during the anthem. If the goal is to force patriotism you spit on the graves of those who fought for our freedom

'Lockdown' states like California did better economically than 'looser' states like Florida, new COVID data shows

Yet for much of the past year, some experts have quietly advanced a counterargument: that economic activity is mainly affected by the rising and falling severity of the pandemic itself — not the relative strictness of the measures implemented to mitigate it. In fact, these experts argued, nonpharmaceutical interventions, or NPIs — a set of 20 government responses such as business closures, mask mandates and stay-at-home advisories that Oxford University rates according to stringency — can have an economic upside. The more the virus seems to be under control, the more eager people will be to participate in the economy.

Last week, this argument got a boost with the publication of a new report by economists at the University of California, Los Angeles. According to the latest quarterly UCLA Anderson Forecast, not only did big states with more stringent COVID measures end 2020 with fewer infections per capita, they also tended to post better economic growth numbers last year than states with fewer restrictions.

 In other words, California’s economy actually fared better than Florida’s.

couple things...

1.  Your link talks about people making $540 k per year and lumps them in with billionaires, that’s insane.  In a country of 350 million, the top 1% is about 3.5 million people.  Out of THAT group, the richest 50 own far more than the others COMBINED.  And THOSE are the ones who pay no taxes, that tiny fraction of the populace at the tippy top.

So yeh, millionaires are overtaxed.  Billionaires are not.  And even if they were, you are basing your whole argument here on income tax, which is merely a tax on liquid gains in one year.  It says nothing about how the top .00001% own the media, the airports, the oil refineries and factories, toll roads, they basically own all the DEBT in the country (huge usury/interest $profits), all the land, the banks and other assets - including stocks which are taxed as capitol gains, a different bracket than income.

2.  You are not a billionaire.  If you were, you would be counting your money all day instead of posting here.  So why do you advocate for billionaires constantly when their economic interests are in direct conflict with yours?  You are like a battered spouse who makes excuses for the guy who keeps beating her ***

The steady drift to the left always moves the goal posts in defining liberals and conservatives... in this Country anyway.

What was considered "liberal" five or six decades ago is now center right or even "conservative" in today's political climate. By that same movement, yesterday's conservatives are today's radical right, the liberals became centrists, the progressives are the liberals, and the radical left are the new progressives.

JFK was considered a liberal in his day, but he would be center right or maybe ever considered a conservative by today's standards.

This is why today, the "conservatives" seem to be more anti-establishment" than the "liberals"... when in reality, the anti- establishment right are really more like yesterday's liberals.

I really wish people would quit **** with the goal post myself.

You selfish little **** get to contend with all that this will entail. I wonder what "this" will be?

My view is that it will be the too-many-rats-in-a-box scenario. Have fun.  Image
As fun as it is to mock Millennials, the game was over for many of them before they even sat down to play.

- Retarded government schools/teachers
- Lies and propaganda about college, student loans, employment (“I thought jerbs were supposed to be fun!”), etc.
- Fluoride in water 
- Pesticides and herbicides in food
- GMOs introduced in 1990s 
- Frankenfoods (bread, pasta, cereals, VEGETABLE oils - if Millennials had any vegetables in their diet it was probably corn or lettuce or some trash with low nutritional value) and Food Pyramid propaganda about “evil fats” and “6-11 servings carbs”
- Highest dosage of vaccines ever compared to prev gens...their bodies AND BRAINS poisoned @ young age
- Raised on SpongeBob and other TEEvee
- Day care ladies raised them coz mom thought working and being a wage slave = liberation
- Retarded parents thought letting kids play outside is “dangerous” so they stayed inside and didn’t get healthy amounts of exercise/activity unlike previous gens
- Fed Globalist and Jew propaganda in college - diversity good, white ppl bad, etc.
- Zero financial literacy (“I want to live in a nice big city like LA or NY where rent eats up $1800 to $2500 a month!”)
- USA flooded with H1B Curry *** and wetbacks to suppress wages

Basically if you’re a Millennial without half decent parents to teach you the harsh truths of life and/or support you it’s like playing poker against 3 ppl - they were handed an Ace, J, and 7 respectively as their first card while you were handed a 3. 

Can you win against these 3 players? Yes. Are the odds in your favor? No, unless you get “lucky” or were smart enough to do something like buy Bitcoin prior to 2013.


 Oh, and you don’t get to fold. You live once and die...I think.

You don't give a **** about women athletes.  You don't give a **** about women in prison.  Lying **** rent boi.  Nor does the rest of your twisted, sick, and wrong crew in this ****.
I do not entirely disagree with the way you are framing this...but your own assertions give it away that there is a more fundamental issue at hand than female athletes. 

I agree. It isn't that I don't care about female athletes...I actually kinda do...but their welfare has little to nothing to do with transgenderism. 

Transgenderism is profane. Because it is an attack on identity. 

For what reason would you pretend that people are not born with innate qualities?

I was born a man, a human, a person of European ancestry, the son of my father and mother, and based on my ancestry one could easily predict I would have a high iq, a short temper, and be lazy. 

You certainly would not allow me to deny the fact I am white when you come after me with your reparations for white privilege ****. So it is actually YOU who exposes yourself as disingenuous by having a double standard. People only have innate qualities when it suits you, and they don't when it suits you. 

Transgenderism is not only an attack on identitidentity attempt to imply that people can be molded into anything that is politically convenient...we can ignore their innate nature...

It is also an attack on sanity. The emperess not only has no clothes, she also has a penis. You want to gaslight people so hard that they fail to see the penis in the room?

Well I personally feel that both identity and sanity are important survival skills. The former allows cooperation, the latter allows us to use our brain which is a human's most important organ. 

the very idea of transgenderism is predicated on an anti survival,, suicidal attitude.. it is profanity to the point of pure evil.

But look...such workers would probably be replaced and directly moved to the relevant government work.

the current system sucks because since the customer is not paying the bill, hospitals can basically charge whatever they want and be as wasteful as they want.

in a capitalist system, insurance simply multiplies the demand curve thereby raising the price point...often to absurd levels.

with state control over the industry, however, it would at least be theoretically possible for the state to set prices that are reasonable.
The medical industry in the U.S. is similar to the criminal justice system here... both filled with busy bodies doing useless jobs, justifying their ridiculous industries because they couldn't get far on their dubious talents otherwise.

In the wake of total automation, there simply is no use for humans, everything is mass produced quickly and cheaply.  But our chimp brains can't wrap around a post scarcity world, so we make up stupid **** for people to do and call them "jobs" while draining the taxpayer, and every few years have a corporate bailout to make sure the excess capitol and commodities stays idle, wasted, sitting in warehouses silently rusting, hoarded by the top 000.1%.

There was a time when certain activities were deemed necessary for the benefit of the state and its citizens, and those things were paid for with tax money, creating an unfortunate layer of beaurocracy, but suppressing some degree of corruption that always comes with profit motive.

For example, criminal justice and incarceration.  The state governments, and federal penitentiaries were responsible for housing, punishing and rehabilitating prisoners, at the taxpayers expense.  Now, the criminal justice system is privatized, with companies like Vanguard (NYSE VTI) making bank off crime, literally.  With profit motive clearly driving criminal justice, the United States prison population has ballooned to the highest in The world… we now incarcerate more people than China or Russia, by far.

Providing clean water used to be a function of city government, that was turned over to Nestle who now charges you by the bottle to drink Evian (naive spelled backwards, a subtle mockery of the great unwashed masses).

phone service was once a public utility, now it is handled by private cellular companies like Verizon.  

I could go on, there are many examples.  The point is, government has no raison det’re anymore, no purpose, no reason to be, except for one thing… to enforce the will of the oligarchs at the barrel of a gun.

 If Nestle runs out of ground water to bottle and sell you, the military will secure them new territory to drain more ground water.  If Apple runs out of lithium for to make cell phones and iPads, the military will occupy Afghanistan for 20 years so they can mine more.  If Monsanto needs to enforce their IP (privately owned seeds and crops) rights by taking over your farm, the military will be there to evict you off your land.

The previous functions of government are totally taken over by multinationals in the U.S., except for deploying government muscle as a tool of the corporations, and keeping track of SS, Medicare, welfare, etc. (pacify the masses with just enough money to keep them from rioting).

This trend will only continue, government is not public anymore.  The multinationals ARE the government for all intents and purposes, and they write the laws and enforce them.  

So the argument about how FB and Google and YouTube are “private companies” and not held to the same standard as government, in respecting and protecting free speech, is insane.  Corporations now effectively govern us all, in the applications of operations that used to be public, are now private, and the biggest difference is, we at least got to vote for the public ******* politicians, but nobody elected the current rulers.

 They are unelected rulers who can displace thousands or millions of workers by closing down Walmart’s in one town and opening in another.  The power of a Fortune 500 CEO to effect the lives of average citizens is far greater than a Senator or governor.  Hail to the NEW chief.. multinational corporations
