Let's be honest.

You want to take over America and Trump supporters stand in your way.

You want us eliminated for THAT reason.

The Capitol intrusion is just a trumped up charge that is convenient.

A few may have committed serious offenses once they entered the Capitol, but the others were just going along with the crowd.

Slaps on the wrist stuff.

Politics: Liberal

It's often call Reaganomics, after the first President who espoused it, but economists call it supply-side economics.  The theory behind it holds that the investor class will stimulate the economy more if they hold more money.  The more government does to ensure the top wage-earners keep more of their money, the more they will invest it, thus stimulating the economy.

George Herbert Walker Bush, when campaigning against Ronald Reagan in 1980, called it "voodoo economics", which is a fitting term.

Because it doesn't work.  It never has, in 40 years.

The first reason it doesn't work is that the American economy is not a closed system.  There's an entire globe where the investor class can put their money, and very reasonably and predictably they're going to want to put it where they get the best return.  That isn't because the rich and powerful are evil; it's because they're smart about where to put their money.  This was how they got rich.  So getting more money to the investor class provides no control over economic stimulus.  They might invest their money in such a way to create jobs.  They might not.  They certainly won't unless there's a good chance of making substantial profit, and again, this is reasonable and predictable and in no way reflects poorly upon them.

The second reason it doesn't work is this:

If you give money to a rich man, he puts it in his pocket, because he can.
If you give money to a common man, he spends it, because he has to.

Now, when that common man is ready to spend that money, guess who's there to take it?  That's right: the rich man.   The rich man got rich by seeing opportunities and seizing them.  If government stimulates the economy by putting more money into the hands of the middle and lower class, they will exchange that money for goods and services they need.  The rich will provide those goods and services in order to obtain that money.

Think about this: if you ever wanted to buy something, there was someone willing to sell it to you, provided you could pay for it.  That's how free enterprise works.  And that's why demand side economics, as espoused by John Maynard Keynes, works.  It expects free enterprise to step up and generate economic growth when the demand is there.  It was the gold standard in economic theory for American government from the time of the second world war until Ronald Reagan came along.  It was the period of the greatest increase in the middle class in global history.  And it was crappy for Republicans, who cast their eyes to find something, anything else to help them win and keep power.

And let's not make any mistake: whether we employ supply side economics or demand side economics, the money will still end up where it always ends up: in the hands of the few and the privileged.  In the latter, jobs are created and the common folk get goods and services.  In the former, the economy stagnates with little to no wage growth.  We've seen it for 40 years.

We've been led to believe that milk and honey will "trickle down" the chins of the high and mighty for the benefit of all, and it hasn't happened.  The fact is, it's foolish to have ever thought it would work.  It was voodoo from the start.  We need to return to demand side economics.  We need to increase the top tax rate and invest in infrastructure.  Those who claim that this will cause the millionaires and billionaires to spontaneously "go away" ignore the fact that the increase in the number of potential customers is far too alluring for the wealthy to walk away.  We can trust entrepreneurialism.  It's what created America.  Make more customers and stand back; watch greed do its work.

Remember this: put money in the hand of a rich man, and he puts it in his pocket because he can.  Put money in the hands of a common man, and he spends it because he has to.  And remember this: wealth is power.  Concentrate wealth and you concentrate power.

If Liberals Are The Good Guys, Why Do They Lie So Much?

Because they are damaged at birth and can't understand that winning comes from doing things they are not good at or things they don't do naturally.

So, instead of working harder, they use their low level short sighted 'thinking' to figure out how to "win" by lying and cheating so they won't get caught.

Criminal thinking.

And you see how they have all fallen in with the dishonesty and criminality without as much as a whimper?

They are inferior and most of them know it and feel they deserve an extra advantage.

Winning any way possible has to be their mindset or else they would never win at all.

In an inauguration year the  the practice has been for the incoming president to not give a SOTU address.  They will address a joint session shortly after their inauguration.

In Contemporary Practice, Is There a State of the Union Address Every Year?

The past six Presidents have chosen not to give an official State of the Union address the year they were first inaugurated, having just previously delivered an inaugural address. In each instance their first speech to a joint session of Congress closely followed their inauguration, but was not officially categorized as a “State of the Union Message.” For example, President Donald Trump’s 2017 address was entitled “Address Before a Joint Session of the Congress.” .2

Some recent Presidents have also preferred not to deliver a State of the Union address immediately prior to their departure from office, although several have given farewell addresses in the last days of their presidencies. President Dwight Eisenhower’s farewell message, broadcast to the nation on January 17, 1961, became famous for its warnings against the “military-industrial complex.”

3 Conversely, outgoing and incoming Presidents have occasionally given successive State of the Union addresses within weeks of each other. President Harry Truman’s final message, delivered in printed form to Congress on January 7, 1953, was closely followed by President Eisenhower’s first message, delivered in person at the Capitol on February 2, 1953.4

He also claimed that his friend ran away and left him to die in a burning car, after the car accident.  He said that the guy ran into forest, and he courageously dragged himself to safety.  The "friend" said that he pulled him from wreck, and stayed with him until paramedics arrived.

According to a Washington Post report, while giving a speech at Patrick Henry College in 2017, Cawthorn lied multiple times about the 2014 car crash that left him reliant on a wheelchair. The Post says that Cawthorn claimed his friend who was driving the vehicle at the time, Bradley Ledford, had left him for dead.

 “He was my brother, my best friend. And he leaves me in a car to die in a fiery tomb,” Cawthorn said of the accident. “He runs to safety deep in the woods and just leaves me in a burning car as the flames start to lick my legs and curl up and burn my left side.” Cawthorn also claimed he was pronounced dead at the scene, but thanks to “adrenaline or divine intervention, I definitely believe it’s the latter, I had a deep inhale of breath.”

​​​​​The problem, of course, is that none of it was true. According to Ledford, he saved Cawthorn’s life. “That statement he made was false,Ledford told The Washington Post. “It hurt very badly that he would say something as false as that. That is not at all what happened. I pulled him out of the car the second that I was able to get out of the car.” And, according to a court deposition, Cawthorn claims he has no memory from the accident. And per a police accident report and Florida Highway Patrol records, Cawthorn was “incapacitated and in critical condition” but was not declared dead.

That answer will tell you which side is more susceptible to propaganda.
Trump partisans are completely emotionally unstable and cognitively challenged. Other conservatives are probably just as stable and intelligent as anybody else, however they have shown themselves to be completely lacking in integrity, so their instability is behavioral.

Americans who buy anything that was spewed out of the orange ****'s festering piehole over the past four years, and the four decades before that, are the ones who are susceptible to blatant propaganda.

So here we go DweebsterStooge...we have both stated our opinions. Ya think it's gonna change anything? The founder's greatest achievement was the establishment of the country on such ridiculous philosophies that the country was doomed to end up in the cultural war that will end it. It started with the country being founded with slavery remaining in place. Which generated the catastrophe that was the civil war. And in modern times, was kicked off by the Tonkin Gulf Resolution and the final splitting of the culture over the Vietnam war. The development of the gaping cultural chasm over the past four years was as predictable as rain over Puget Sound.

So white American christian conservatives are now all whining, pissing and moaning about their culture being cancelled and their beliefs and desires becoming dismissed.  Well guess what after almost 250 years of dominance of the culture by white christian convervatives...what goes around, comes around.

I haven't talked with a homeless person before, but...I had a random shower thought.

This is speculation - the homeless ppl who aren't in their current situation due to drug addiction/mental illness choose to be homeless.

Reasoning?

Well it's quite simple actually...they find employment to be below them. A waste of time.

And while the homeless, like any other group of people, would prefer to have a roof over their heads, the tradeoff isn't worth it to them.

Option A: Slave away 40+ hrs a week so the investors and owners get rich off the value of labor you provide, you get a mortgage and billz 2 pay

Option B: Stay homeless and, if the homeless person is smart, keep eyes peeled for opportunities

(Option C - unavailable to the homeless, and for that matter, 99%+ of people): Inherit property and live off dividends/rental income/bonds

Option C warrants additional scrutiny...

Assuming a 'safe' 4% withdrawal rate, $1M generates 40K (keep in mind this is pre-tax as dividends and rental income are treated as income) which is really nothing.

$40K is crumbs, fitting for a college grad who subsisted on rice and beans to help expedite loan repayments.

I'd say you need AT MINIMUM $100K/year in post-tax residual income requiring minimal work (like driving 30 miles every month to collect renters' dues) to live comfortably.

That requires more than $3M in investments, and pretty much anybody who has $3M in investments will have $5M or more in net worth due to diversification of assets. Nobody (who isn't a complete retard) will put 80% of net worth in the stock market.

Now I don't know about you, but I can't think of many jobs/employment that would allow you to accumulate $5M in net worth thru your working life.

Factor in taxes, ever increasing cost of living ("but muh 1.5% inflayshun!"), the potential to be laid off thus depriving you of income, "spending sprees," etc.

Maybe "reality TV host?"

Or "Reparations Department Head?" (In 2030 - job comes with full pension...those govt workers are so noble!)

If I had to choose between options A and B, I would go with B for sure. At least I would be exposed to opportunities that would allow me to escape A for the rest of life.

I don't feel any sympathy for the homeless - they seem to understand the situation with far greater clarity than the NPCs of society and are making a rational choice.

Like you said, we have a safety net in this country...you can consider the safety net inadequate but nevertheless, there must be some explanation for why these people do not want to get a job. I actually sided with them on this particular issue - if I had to choose between homelessness (living in my car or whatever) and becoming a debt slave, homelessness sounds like the better option.

Experienced and respected educators on either side of the political fence agree that some books are not age-appropriate for youngsters, yet are important enough to be available to students once they've reached a certain maturity.  A good example, I think, would be The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  The book is controversial and has been since it was published some 140 years ago, partly because it features the "n-word" 200 times.  Students below a sixth-grade reading level probably won't get the underlying message of the book and might quote it, but students above a sixth-grade reading level would gain an important perspective on American life in the antebellum south.

Lord of the Flies is another book I would suggest is inappropriate for young children (it's pretty violent), but as a tool to teach symbolism in literature it is priceless to teachers in middle and high schools.

So, my belief (and I'm a liberal) is that restrictions may fairly be applied by school authorities and yes, parents, but I'd be opposed to outright bans.

However, I remember as a young man being very frustrated that I was only allowed to check out books far below my reading level.  My parents strongly encouraged reading and I was reading before I went to school.  By the time I was in fifth grade I was reading adult novels at home, mostly science fiction because that's what my father liked.  But my local public library had a policy and I remember being quite frustrated.  My personal experience leads me to think that schools and libraries should be flexible about which books to allow to which students; if a kid in fourth grade reads at a seventh grade level, let him borrow books at that level.

"CARRIZO SPRINGS, Texas — A former oilfield worker camp off a dirt road in rural Texas has become the U.S. government’s newest holding center for detaining migrant children after they leave Border Patrol stations, where complaints of overcrowding and filthy conditions have sparked a worldwide outcry.

Inside the wire fence that encircles the site are soccer fields, a giant air-conditioned tent that serves as a dining hall, and trailers set up for use as classrooms and as places where children can call their families.

The long trailers once used to house workers in two-bedroom suites have been converted into 12-person dorms, with two pairs of bunk beds in each bedroom and the living room."

Nothing To See Here: Biden Bans Reporters from Viewing His ‘Kids in Cages’
By Ulysses S. Tennyson | Mar 3, 2021

We recently reported on the fantastic non-transparency of the Biden administration.  It should come as no surprise, then, that immigration transparency would also decrease as millions of migrants threaten to flood the American border.

After 4 years of accusations against Donald Trump for his detention of illegal alien children in detention centers that were created under Barack Obama, Biden–using the same facilities–has now barred the press from viewing the ‘cages.”

Why?
“The Biden administration will ban reporters from touring juvenile detention facilities now accommodating unaccompanied minors who came across the United States-Mexico border seeking asylum.

“Reporters will not be allowed inside the Carrizo Springs facility for unaccompanied minors that was recently opened under the Trump administration in Texas, a Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF) spokesperson” said in response to the Daily Caller’s request to tour the facility.”

The reason that they gave will come as no surprise.  It is the same reason Democrats have given for all of their tyranny and opacity since last spring:

“The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is not hosting media tours of unaccompanied children (UC) facilities currently due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the spokesperson told the media outlet.

Under President Trump, these facilities were often portrayed as “cages” that imprisoned children. Very often, however, pictures used by the mainstream media often dated to the Obama administration.

After Joe Biden loosened restrictions on the United States-Mexico border, a flood of asylum seekers responded by coming in droves, hoping to take advantage of the Democrat Party’s more lenient immigration policies.

The Washington Post reported that the former Trump “cage” facilities are being “reactivated” to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17.”
 
Biden Admin Will Not Allow Reporters To Tour Child Migrant Detention Facilities, Cite COVID-19By  Emily Zanotti   Mar 2, 2021   DailyWire.com

The Biden administration will not allow reporters to tour juvenile detention facilities now housing unaccompanied minors who came across the United States-Mexico border seeking asylum.

“Reporters will not be allowed inside the Carrizo Springs facility for unaccompanied minors that was recently opened under the Biden administration in Texas, a Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF) spokesperson” said in response to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request to tour the facility.
And I guess a dimwitted **** like you doesn't mind THIS either, do you?
Over 100 COVID-19 Positive Illegal Immigrants Released by Border Patrol in Texas
By  Human Events Staff  March 3, 2021

There are two main things that team-left is worried about: contracting the coronavirus and finding an easy path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. 

So, what would their reaction be if illegal immigrants were the ones spreading the virus to American citizens? 

Unfortunately for them, it’s happening right now. 

More than 100 illegal immigrants released into Texas by Biden’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection tested positive for COVID-19, the Epoch Times reports.

Felipe Romero, a spokesperson for Brownsville, Texas, said that 108 migrants tested positive for the virus since January 5, when rapid testing began. That represents about 6.3 percent of the total undocumented individuals who were rapid-tested at the bus station. 

He added that the city has no authority to prohibit COVID-positive migrants from traveling anywhere else in the United States.
Such wisdom, while LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS can get arrested and tasered for not wearing a mask, Biden border patrol waived in OVER ONE HUNDRED INFECTED ILLEGALS WITH NO PROBLEM!
Texas Cop Threatens To Taser Man For Not Wearing A Maskby ImageA.M. Smith
— Nicholas Connolly (@MrNickConnolly) January 25, 2021

The cop then tells the man to leave the store, adding, “Don’t argue with me, it’s real simple.”The man, who noted that the officer’s mask had slipped down, is carrying a gun as is his right under Texas law.

The clip shows the officer entering the store and immediately barking at the man, “Where’s your mask at?”

“What mask?” he responds.

“The mask that you’re required to wear by city ordinance,” responds the officer.

The cop then tells the man to leave the store, adding, “Don’t argue with me, it’s real simple.”

.”The man, who noted that the officer’s mask had slipped down, is carrying a gun as is his right under Texas law.

As the man follows the order and leaves the store, the cop then draws his weapon and says, “I will tase you right now!”

Despite the fact that the man has left the store and is no longer required to wear a mask, he is detained anyway and told to put his hands up.

“Get your hand up now!” shouts the officer as he calls for backup. “Dude, you’re just dumb, you should be listening!” he adds.

“You move again, I’m gonna drop you!” says the cop despite the fact that the man is complying.

“It was simple, all you had to do was step outside and put a mask on,” says the officer as he disarms the man’s gun before claiming the man is “uncooperative” despite the fact that he is stood with his hands on his head.

The video ends with the cop pointing the taser at the man.

Some respondents to the video said the man should have complied, but others asserted that the officer took it too far.

“Talk about over reaction by an officer! I’m always for the police but this is ridiculous,” said one.

“But they cannot control the people burning down their cities? Our world is upside down!!” added another.

“Joe Biden’s America right here,” remarked another.

So how can even the dumbest liberal justify what determined to be fine for infected illegals BREAKING THE LAW BY ILLEGALLY ENTERING THE COUNTRY, and a man who is bothering no one and NOT infected is arrested and threatened to be tasered WHILE OUTSIDE, WHERE A MASK IS NOT REQUIRED?
 THAT is the kind of stupidity that ignorant dopes like YOU voted for!

This bill could make America mediocre again. Which would be a step up for us at this point.

It definitely is.  However, I see it this way:  If Dems kill the filibuster and push through legislation that 83 million Biden voters want, then we will be in good shape to keep both houses in 2022.

If there's nothing but a long string of "didn't get it done because we didn't have 60 votes" scenarios, we WILL lose in 2022.  No doubt about it.   Jmo...

A Democrat president has to spend obscene amounts of money to undo the mess? I know this has to happen but how many more times are we going to be able to do this? I thought what Obama did in his first term will get us where we need to be and stable for the future. I fear if we go back down these rabbit holes of disaster anymore times were done I fear this gonna be our last reprieve.

I think that is because there is a never ending cycle of Republicans spending money that they do not have or will ever have. 

It started with the introduction of Reaganomics and everyone's favorite Trickle Down Economics, that if you cut regulation and blah blah it is suppose to trickle down instead the wealth has became so egregiously held at the top there is not enough money to go around and the tax burden falls on the middle class while Republicans continue to spend more and more money without taking enough in, goes right back around to the failure of Reaganomics. 

I still think to this day one of Obama's biggest failures was not ending the Bush Tax Cuts. 

We have to get ourselves out of the Republican Rabbit hole so that when Democrats regain control of the presidency we don't have to spend obscene amounts of money to get our country rolling again. 

Oh and just remember to tell your Constitutional and "Fiscal Conservative" friends and family that the last president to have a Budget Surplus was a Democrat not a Republican. 

It's almost like Democrats actually want to have success instead of failure after failure like the Republicans.

This is a snapshot of a poster. This is the level of his contribution to the board. This is what the left brings to the conversation - he is actually fairly representative, sadly.

That's it. That is his entire contribution to this thread. It's commensurate with his usual abilities.
