Rich people do not create jobs. What creates jobs is a strong working class wage in relationship to the purchasing power of the consumer dollar.

...

Again, you seem to be confused about the nature of money. It doesn't matter what you pay in taxes. What DOES matter is the purchasing power of your take home pay.

Taxation does not determine the pricing of goods and services.

Nothing is ever over produced.

...

The other problem with this argument is why would you assume our capability to produce goods and services would not be enough to meet our own demand. I find it laughable to think with all the huge productivity gains over the last 30 years the corporations producing stuff are not capable to meeting demand 10 times over.


Dude... you are burning time without a cause here. You might as well be explaining thermodynamics of a heterogenous dynamic fluid to a duck. You know that, right?

Hello, Reagan he was an actor, but I imagine that's before your time so you didn't know.

Try actually searching this stuff before posting knee jerk reactions.

You may want to take your own advice.

Reagan was Governor of California before becoming President.

Dude, he was an actor also before all that man...
You focusing on his being a gov is superficial, he didn't have any experience before doing that outside Hollywood. That was the point I was making. Now stop being obtuse and arguing just for the sake of being contrary.

Wtf is wrong with you people?
Do a quick search, find the first thing you see and run with it?

What's this quote say --->
Ronald Wilson Reagan (/ˈreɪɡən/; February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004) was an American politician who served as the 40th president of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Prior to his presidency, he was a Hollywood actor and union leader before serving as the 33rd governor of California from 1967 to 1975.


HOLLYWOOD ACTOR!

He was not a politican before he got into politics, sounds familiar huh...derp!

Political "experience" doesn't mean dick.

Right now, in congress, we have CENTURIES of combined political experience and they couldn't decide on Charmin or Cottonelle in the toilets!

If political experience was a solution to problems, WE'D HAVE NO MORE FRIGGIN' PROBLEMS!

What other President had less political experience as Trump?


That was the quote you were responding to. Yes or no, did Reagan have more political experience than Trump when he became President?

What's your point?

I'm not seeing why you are even in this conversation. You seem about as sharp as a box of rocks.

Political experience don't mean jack #.
Look where it's gotten the world. No where.

Politics is not supposed to be career, American politicians especially. They are supposed to be States men & women, not careerist.

Now please, STFU and go away or seriously do some damn home work before you think you're bringing your A game man. You are not fooling any one here with your abstract trolling.

So either come out with wtf you're trying to prove or just zip it pal. You're obviously not seeing the neon signs I've laid out all over ATS since 2003.

Not my problem, too many people here think they know more than they really do.

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't true.

If anything what Idiocracy ultimately shows is what results from a small, inexperienced Government that is focused on populism, corporatism and self interest.
Not that I'm a fan of big government, just pointing out that it's easy to fit a movie like Idiocracy into whatever political position you want depending on the partisan filters you choose to view it through, then if you're observant enough, it will take your assumptions and kick the absolute bejeezus out of them!
That's just one of the clever tricks that the movie pulls on its audience(another is winking at those ironic wits loudly proclaiming it a documentary, while laughing subtley behind thier backs when they're not looking), and ultimately true Idiocracy is assuming any particular belief or action will lead to any particular future outcome/s.

Good luck with that.

I can throw a lit cigarette butt on the ground and a chicken might peck at it a couple of times before realizing it's not something they want to ingest. A duck? Darn stoopid thing will kill itself trying to eat a lit cigarette butt before it realizes it's gonna burn their beak off! I have to shoo them away so I can stomp it out just to save their lives.

The translated name that was shortened to Nazi was National Socialist German Workers’ Party but that was because they wanted votes. In truth, the party was based on racial superiority and brute-force governance.

Also, the idea of socialism that Hitler outlined in Mein Kampf is anti-communist, white supremacist, anti-democratc and pro capitalist. Nothing like the way we understand the word 'socialism' today.

Why did all those people in Charlottesville with Nazi insignias, uniforms and shaven heads, call their rallies "Unite the Right"? Unite the Right rally From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Nazi party is the very definition of an ultra right-wing movement.

Were the Nazis Socialists?

Were the Nazis Socialists? - Encyclopeaedia Brittanica.com

Nazism From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Man says Nazis were socialist, gets schooled by history writer - The Independent

The American heroes of the 2nd World War, where they fought and many gave their lives against right-wing forces, would revile you for your right-wing BS.

The alt-right is a neo-Nazi movement, as is proven by the Charlottesville rallies.

Racism and brute force, overpowering, all reaching government...if those two ideas don't encapsulate the farther left wing movements out there, I'll eat my hat.

So a political movement that espouses a white supremacist master race is left wing as it gets?

Compare the numbers of minorities in the Dembs party in contrast to the GOP. What political party most looks like they follow a Fascist ideology?

Votes... same reason the Dems have pandered the everloving hell out of the African Americans while following policies intended to keep them down and dependent on the handouts they will always vote for.

No one gives a rats ass about alleged Nazi's today.

It's a bit old accusing people of something they never participated in let alone were alive for.

No one in America loaded Jews up on train's to kill them. Americans fought to save the Jews you idiots. How can an American party be the nemesis they fought against...

Ignorant fools.

The real Nazi's are all dead or in hiding.

Show me today where any trains have been packed full of people to get gassed to death.

Show me the mass graves from the alleged atrocities of today's Nazi's....

There is none, they're hasn't been and its a straw man argument, both you numb skull's know it.

So unless one of you can show us where the bodies from all the Nazi's killing people today are, I advise you to stop detracting from the op and stay on topic.

There is no way you guys are this f'n stupid.

Stop arguing for the sake of argument.

I'm not here to debate circle jerk arguments.

I am here to get your brain juices flowing and entice discussion that leads to open minded collaborative discussions.

Prove me wrong, provide sources, and then go ahead and rub my nose in it.

Until then, this Nazi drivel is just an instant turn off because I'll tune you out for being daft enough to assume it's relevant.

News flash, World War 2 is over and has been for almost a century. Stop living in a past you didn't experience. This isn't the 1990s either, racist bs is only a political schtick to manipulate ignorant useful idiots. Which you both seem to be.


Let the flow of your delirium surge forth, expel it from your minds. Because this thought process you have embraced is about as narrow minded as those you assumed to be as such.

Your quackery doesn't offend me, I'm actually saddened for you and your head in the sand mentality.
