Ok please explain why you posted a link to that article "a country cannot be run like a company" ?

How does firing government employees relate to that?

If the government hires employees, doesn't that make it a lot like a company?
If not, than why would firing them make it like one when hiring them doesn't?

And in relation to the article, the argument it is making is illogical.
Just because the US Economy is extremely diverse and complicated does not necessitate the claim "it shouldn't be run like a company". Maybe it shouldn't be run like a small company like GM, that makes sense. But it is indeed a massive diverse and complex company, so it should be run like a massive diverse and complex company rather than a small one.

And besides, that article isn't even legally correct:


(15) “United States” means—
(A) a Federal corporation;
(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States;
or (C) an instrumentality of the United States.


28 US Code section 3002

If our own Federal laws state that "United States" means a "Corporation", than it is so. They are the final arbiter of that distinction.

Now, what do you propose the US Corporation be run as, if not a Corporation?

Why is Bannon a bad person?


He just is. He said it himself.

Darkness is Good. Evil is Good. All Hail Evil.

Who else turns evil into a good thing?

Remember Satan in the Garden of Eden? Exactly the same philosophy.

"Oh, Eve, don't believe what the Lord tells you, you can eat the fruit, your eyes will open, you'll get wise."

That's how we all got here.


No, he didn't say he was a bad person lol, your bias just interpreted it that way.

"I'm a nationalist. I'm an economic nationalist," he said in the interview. "The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue now is about Americans looking to not get f---ed over."

I couldn't agree with him more. As for your fairy tales, they aren't convincing.


I haven't seen a Republican policy in my lifetime that helped the lower or middle class... Only pro rich economic policies.


I guess you weren't alive for President Reagan. "Under Reagan while the incomes for the lowest 50 percent grew 17.9 percent. The middle class, or the taxpayers in the middle 50-95 percent, saw their incomes rise 21.4 percent. While it is true that the rich got richer, so did the poor."

bannon is the msm public enemy #1 only because he is not from nbc or cnn
they hate him because he is outside them

maddow keeps referencing him as bannon from britebart news, as if thats horrible and unforgivable

green is really not the color for the msm


They try their best to discredit Breitbart News, but actually Breitbart has some of the best investigative journalists out there.

Bannon's resume is impressive. He has major credentials and accomplishments and abilities. He is a real asset to this administration.

Watch the left, especially people like Maddow. They throw out those little innuendoes like it's a bad thing, and of course, their audience is too lazy or dumb to actually follow up with their own research about the man. They lap up the fake news, misrepresentations, and half-truths like its digestible, not realizing how poisonous it truly is to their brains.

The Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 (Pub.L. 97–34), also known as the ERTA or "Kemp-Roth Tax Cut", was a federal law enacted in the United States in 1981. It was an act "to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 to encourage economic growth through reductions in individual income tax rates, the expensing of depreciable property, incentives for small businesses, and incentives for savings, and for other purposes".[1]

Included in the act was an across-the-board decrease in the marginal income tax rates in the United States by 23% over three years, with the top rate falling from 70% to 50% and the bottom rate dropping from 14% to 11%. This act slashed estate taxes and trimmed taxes paid by business corporations by $150 billion over a five-year period. Additionally the tax rates were indexed for inflation, though the indexing was delayed until 1985.


Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981


As a result of ERTA and other tax acts in the 1980s, the top 10% were paying 57.2% of total income taxes by 1988, up from 48% in 1981, the bottom 50% of earners share dropping from 7.5% to 5.7% in the same period.[5] The total share borne by middle income earners of the 50th to 95th percentiles decreased from 57.5% to the 48.7% between 1981 and 1988.[6]


Explain how lowering taxes does not help people.
Explain how these numbers do not help lower or middle classes when it says clearly in bold that it did help them.
In fact, the top 10% paid more taxes while the lower and middle paid less!

Because the Russians will have to invade us to get rid of these annoying media pundits if we don't do it ourselves!

And what is the rest of the world going to do while this happens? What becomes of the American people? What keeps China or Russia from invading, literally?


Large oceans, our strong navy, good diplomacy, economics and logistics, strong immigration laws, etc?

Russia and China simply have no viable chance to "invade" in this current global paradigm.
Maybe in 2080 they could achieve it but that's still unlikely considering the current situation.
A lot would have to change for it to even become feasible.


You realize that our strong navy is only possible because of the government, right? For each marine on the battlefield or sailor at sea, it takes a lot more than just a dude being handed a gun.

This isn't unique to our military either.

I get the impression people just think average Joes can just grab whatever guns they want to bring to the fight and show up for a military action.

Are there any 1st world nations, or anyone rivaling America's power that has such a setup? Just a "grab yer gun and muster!" type of military?


This isn't even a consistent debate anymore.

You claimed Russia or China might invade, I suggested that's not even realistic, now you're saying that we won't have a strong military if what? If we eliminate some government agencies or fire a ton of employees?

How does firing some agency bureaucrats translate to "let's just hand guys a gun and tell em go to war" ?

This kind of person makes me kind of angry, she calls someone a racist which causes a lot of people to start hating people of other colors. They can't do that kind of name calling to try to intimidate someone, that is not right. I have found that the people who call others racists the most are usually the most racist of all. They are siding with the minority, so they are racist against whites who have a different opinion then them.


I agree that many people (not all) are now abusing these concepts and terms. It cheapens them and also undermines any real activism around legitimate racism or bigotry.

Basically, some people are weaponizing such terms, knowing that it will either hush up an opponent or defame their character.


It is an ad hominum technique.

Can you imagine Pelosi and Rachel Maddow coming unglued if Breitbart News is allowed to ask a question at the White House daily press briefings via their new Skype set up. There were four Skypers yesterday from outside the Beltway and it went off without a hitch.

Maddow would have a cow!!

well at least he has the guts to admit it, unlike Obama who did it and lied about it.

I have more respect for someone who tells the truth, even if I don`t agree with them, than I do for a liar like Obama.

I think in this case what Bannon meant was the current political order that wants open borders, free movement of people and labor, open markets, a unified one world government type setup.

I realized that Bannon isn't a white supremacist, at least not based on any evidence I've seen.

people are just throwing around these terms white nationalist and racist far too often

The Left hates Bannon because of his success.

I believe he is a supremacist: A Bannon supremacist.

But ... I don't think he cares what the left calls him or what they're able to make stick. Didn't he self-describe as a Honey Badger? LOL

Nobody loves a honey badger. No one's gonna run up to one and give it a hug. But ... they're damned entertaining to watch on TV.

This is what you need to know about Bannon (and it's a damned shame stuff like this winds up buried on page 6 or 7 of a thread). Bannon is dismantling the Left's mouthpiece one tooth at a time. Do you not think it was Bannon who counseled Trump to Blister CNN ( "You're Fake News" ) ... ?

It's the relationship Trump has with Bannon that's important. Not the other way around. I'm pretty sure both of them understand the directional aspect to which I am drawing attention.

Bannon came with a nice teflon coating. The Left's bigwigs are throwing the mud now. There's your tell. That's how you can measure Bannon's value. I'm waiting to see what happens when heat is applied. ... If they can get a crack to develop in that coating. So far ... uh uh.

And what else do you need to know about Bannon? You just need to look at the last thread I posted to the boards. Think about which Forum it was where I put it.

True me saying it doesn't make it so. it doesn't. And if I was the only one saying it I'd tell you to ignore me too.
But I'm not the only one saying it and honey it's true. They are both racists.
You can go ahead and ignore the truth if you want.
Just don't expect the rest of us to follow suit.

Trump is a proper noun, capitalize it.

It appears that you are doing it on purpose too, because you capitalized all the other words correctly, yet you failed to do so with Trump twice.

That's very petty and undignified. Even Hitler or Stalin get's capitalization. Hell, even Satan too.
Just capitalize people's names please.
