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.

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.

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...

Typically, cuts in federal spending lead to increases in state taxes.  President Biden has not cut federal spending; in fact, he has been spending like a Republican so far.  I've been watching government a long time, and here's the deal: both parties spend like crazy.  Democrats increase taxes (usually on top earners and corporations), Republicans decrease taxes (again, usually mostly in favor of top earners and corporations), but both sides spend.  Debt increases when Democrats are in power, debt increases astronomically when Republicans are in power.  Debt always increases.

I don't know if all lefties her defend having children decide their own gender. It wouldn't surprise me if all of you did, but I do know there is some. Our frontal lobes don't even fully develop until around 25. How the hell would a child know what gender they identify with?

Nope, I will be receiving the coronavirus vaccine.  Experimental procedures aren't covered under my medical insurance.
Vaccines/drugs are experimental until they are approved by the FDA. The COVID vaccines are unapproved, therefore they are experimental.

  •  WHAT IS THE PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE?
    The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is an unapproved vaccine that may prevent COVID-19. There is no FDA-approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19.
    https://www.fda.gov/media/144414/download
  • What Are Clinical Trials and Studies?
    • A Phase III trial gathers more information about safety and effectiveness, studying different populations and different dosages, using the drug in combination with other drugs. The number of subjects usually ranges from several hundred to about 3,000 people. If the FDA agrees that the trial results are positive, it will approve the experimental drug or device.
    • A Phase IV trial for drugs or devices takes place after the FDA approves their use. A device or drug's effectiveness and safety are monitored in large, diverse populations. Sometimes, the side effects of a drug may not become clear until more people have taken it over a longer period of time.

I consider you pretty logical and level headed. It's amazing how two reasonable and intelligent people can see this case so differently. I am sure I have my blind spots as well but, it seems from any unbiased look at this case, that Mr Floyd had a life long struggle with addiction to some very deadly drugs. That shortly before he died he was suffering an overdose when he was dealing with law enforcement.  That he died as a result of not getting immediate treatment for the overdose. 

He was complaining about trouble breathing several minutes before being put on the ground.

He had a feeling of impending doom and was paranoid.

He had a 3x lethal amount of fentanyl in his system coupled with methamphetamine.

I don't dispute the findings of the experts, he died from hypoxia. He was unable to get enough oxygen to his brain to sustain life. I disagree with their conclusions that it was positional asphyxia. I am insulted by an expert that claims one minutes that 97.8 pounds of pressure was applied to Floyd's neck one minute and admits during cross-examination that the knee was on his shoulders.  Upset by media coverage that is only focusing on the prosecution’s statements and answers, including the defense portions as an ineffective afterthought. 

Blm leaders have already indicated that anything less than a murder conviction will result in violence. I have never been a fan of violence to promote a political agenda. From right wing wack jobs shooting up churches to blm agitators burning and looting stores, it's all unjustified idiocy. The fact these threats are made and are quite plausible is disturbing.  Hopefully you will join me in condemning the violence before it predictably takes place.

LIke this is a coherent point.  All you ever do is jewbashing. 

You're an envious loser because the Jews figured out how to beat you at your own game.  Jews do free enterprise better than you do.  They do free enterprise better than just about everybody.  They outsmarted you all by not trying to break through your **** glass ceiling.  They sent their kids to college to be doctors and lawyers and scientists and ENTREPRENEURS...and they didn't need your christian corporate boardrooms, or your **** up middle management jobs.  And you know who realized this?  Malcolm X.  Malcolm tried his best to keep his people from beating their heads against the glass ceiling trying to get white christians to treat them fairly.  He tried to tell his people to do it the way the Jews did it.  Stay in your neighborhoods.  Work for your own people, buy from your own people, employ your own people, save your money, send your kids to college to be doctors and lawyers and accountants and entrepreneurs.  But Malcolm was just a little too much, and Dr. King was so much more easy to listen to and rally behind.  But Malcolm wouldn't shut up...so they finally killed him for it.  It's too bad, because it works.  And the reason you're so hateful and envious is because the Jews beat you at your own game.

The other interesting thing about Jews is their attitude about conflict.  Take a Jew kid living in some christian neighborhood, getting beat up and ridiculed all the time.  Does he ever go get himself a gun and take revenge on his tormentors?  Nope. Hand him a gun and you know what he says?  Holy ****!  A gun!!! And he runs the other way.  But put the same Jew in a Jewish army with a bunch of other Jews who know all the history of how their ancestors were victimized by you people, you Egyptians, you Spanish Inquisition priests, you Germans..  And they say...**** you and what you think we oughta be doing about our friendly neighbors who only want peace. Image  **** you and your demands about how we oughta be defending ourselves. 

Get those Jews into a uniform, give them a Tavor X95 and when they run into somebody like you who looks a little threatening and they'll kill you in a nanosecond.  And never give your sniveling, miserable, pathetic fat dead *** a second thought.

Point taken, AL.  You're correct.  :)    I'm hoping that this is at least a start towards meaningful change to the culture on the streets.  I'm definitely not a "defund the police" lefty, but I do believe there needs to be far more accountability and transparency.  The killing of George Floyd wasn't Derek Chauvin's first encounter with police misconduct, by any means.  Most police perform admirably in a very dangerous job - it's cops like Chauvin that destroy public trust and perception of law enforcement.

So, as you all know, Meltdown Mary, aka @Blackvegetable  ,  doesn't like to be exposed for the fraud and idiot that he is. Which is why I enjoy exposing him as the fraud and idiot that he is. I enjoy his meltdowns and tantrums that can last for days sometimes. Why am I starting this tribute thread for him? Two reasons: 1. I love triggering him to meltdown mode and 2. I love to expose him as the fraud and idiot that he is. 

Below is a link to all of Veghead's threads that he has started. Veghead does not think for himself, I don't think he has the intellectual capacity. Every thread he starts is a copy/paste from the internet with no thoughts of his own...well, except calling Trump supporters slackjaws and whatever else. But that doesn't count. Most every member I see here offers their thoughts on their links, their own interpretation, and they make an original argument on their own. Veghead prefers to let the internet talk for him, then belt out 70k questions without answering any.

Here is my friendly bet. If anyone can find one OP of his where he made an argument on his own, gave his own thoughts, gave his own interpretations, or reasoned anything out on his own, I will give that person 100 greenies. 

If nobody can find one, then I am to be nominated for the post award.

There are 73 pages of this ****: threads/Blackvegetable

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 ***

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.

Thank you.

In one minute, I think you will be hooked.

Bill Warner, PhD: Professional Ignorance

https://youtu.be/xhwBV39uWT0

"This is a talk given to political leaders. It covers how universities, law enforcement, clergy, politicians and military are not protecting our civilization via their professional ignorance. Institutions are failing and not doing their due diligence to learn and explain the true nature of political Islam. The problem is not Islam. We are the problem."

After one of Warner's speeches, a member of Germany's Executive Committee said, "I can now see after your talk we will never defeat Islam using our methods and that the only method will work are yours."
So, besides the biggest crime in history, which was/is the theft of this nation's currency issuance by a jewish cabal called the federal reserve bank, here are my issues:

1. **** suckers molesting children with gender confusion mind games;
2. **** suckers molesting women with gender confusion mind games;
3. Vax nazis trying to experiment on me and mine;
4. Climate nazis trying to tax the air I breathe;
5. Republicans and Democrats working in false opposition to enslave me to their wall street masters;
6. Neocon chicken hawks like bush and obama starting military adventures;
7. A nascent and uglifying police state;
8. The ongoing federalization of our daily lives;
9. Trade compacts like TPP and T-TIP by which demico-republicrats put global corporations above America's courts
10. The open and deliberate jew-inspired de-whiting of the earth.

In precisely ZERO of the issues I give one **** about are muslims involved. Every last one of them has jews at the top, jews in the middle and jews at the bottom, with a couple also utilizing retarded goy chicks. 

So, go **** yourself with this weak, sissified diversion - no one on this board is gonna bite. Image
