Except that he shot up regular shoppers at a Walmart and not some CEOs. His manifesto was filled with language that echoed Trump and looks like that's the portion that was acted upon. I quote his disdain for the "Hispanic invasion of Texas" and he placed his blame for the bulk of his woes on immigrants. Sound familiar?


It does... it sounds eerily similar to the national Democratic platform prior to LBJ's plan to cosmetically change the party's positions to secure the minority votes in this nation. You remember, the Democrats who lead the charge against immigrants using violent uprisings in New York, formed the KKK, and tried to block most significant civil rights bills in this nation prior to LBJ's catharsis? We can cherry pick the 15-20% of the manifesto that sounds similar to the nationalist position on keeping illegals out of the USA, but that leaves the 80-85% of the manifesto which is IN LOCKSTEP with the left's views on corporate America, socialism, universal basic income, universal healthcare, rich people suck, etc. A registered Democrat espousing majority progressive liberal views just shot up a Walmart... but "holy hell how TF can we pin this to Donald Trump?" is the predictable dribbling noise coming out of the pundit's mouths.

It is not a Republican view that the economy is great, just a few ostriches with their heads in the ground.

I consider myself a very conservative moderate, and quite a few of the people who vote the same as I are completely oblivious to our current dilemma.

I don't get it. Criticizing our Govt's handling of our economy, and being too involved in corporations, is not a leftist idea. This is what I thought Trump was talking about when he told me he would drain the swamp, but he got my vote then did everything he could to help these huge corporations, instead of his base which is me and many other middle class Americans like me, who are right of center.

Wow, you gotta dig back pretty far to find the racist democrats that abandoned the Democratic party 50 years ago to become republicans when the Dem party lost it's racist edge?

Southern strategy? History? Anyone?

Again, who did the kid shoot up? Where/who was the actual anger directed towards? That is 100% of the real outcome.

Not true, you don't have to dig back further than 25 years, in fact. Robert Byrd, the Klansman, was a Democrat icon and David Duke was running and winning as a Democrat.

The Southern Strategy never even took place. Democrat George Wallace openly wooed and won the racist vote against Nixon. Yet another example of Democrat projection of sins.

Unlike the 1970s, wealth inequality is at all time highs

Of course.
Corporations are now international
Now execs not only have to worry about US locations , but many locations in many other countries.
You have to have the best execs for that

Kinda "blows your post out of the water" , huh ?

Thanks for sharing that video.
This one was also really good.



I had this guy's books back 20 years ago when I was in college and I didn't read them very closely. I wish I had read them over and over and took everything he said to Heart. But hey, I've made a lot of mistakes and experienced a lot of misfortunes, so maybe I'm finally going to learn my lessons and turn this thing around ?

I am almost there I believe, I've been improving myself as best as I can daily for years. I still have some major flaws to contend with, and new problems pop up daily, some of them debilitating, like how I broke my spine.

But I am not going to let anything like that hold me down, I'm determined to turn my life around and to live the way I feel and think - and that's as one of the richest men in the world.

I really truly think that I'm an elite and so now I just need to act like I believe it.
So much harder said than done, but not impossible.
I know I CAN do this!

Gonna take some time and a lot more education and focus to get there, but I know I CAN do it! I WILL do it! I'm glad I screwed up all these times, it's teaching me how to finally get this thing right!!

Unlike the 1970s, wealth inequality is at all time highs. And what point do the leftist arguments have merit? Will you be happy when laissez faire capitalism results in one CEO having 99% of every dollar ever printed?

You tell me what is the right balance between the haves and the have nots?



As some point it's not propaganda. What level of inequality do you accept as not being propaganda?



So if I really want to create a positive cash flow than I need to figure out how to get the 1% to start paying me some of that mega stack of cash they got.

Thanks for sharing the video, it helped me decide who my target customer demographic will be. The 1%. They can afford it.

Thank you for sharing that letter from Jefferson to Adams. It was interesting.

Now, about corporatism and the state of the financial world today - instead of viewing this as a problem that is blocking our progress, I think it's time to view it as an opportunity to exploit towards our benefit.

None complain about their respective salaries or bemoan the fact that we don't have 20 dollar/hour minimum wage.

But then again, none of us have degrees in Gender Studies or Normative Political Identity Structure Formation.


I'm about sick and tired of these folks. They can either learn to starve or learn a ####ing trade.

I second that
Make it so.
That way they would be "repaying" us taxpayers by actually performing something beneficial .

Unlike the 1970s, wealth inequality is at all time highs. And what point do the leftist arguments have merit?

Wealth inequality is not a direct measurement of how prosperous a nation is. The percentage of people living in poverty has fallen the last few years and is now equal to 1970 levels. The average living standards of today are better than the living standards of the 1970's. There are less homeless people now than in the 1970's.

If you analyze the nations of the world you'll find the most developed nations typically have a much higher level of inequality than other nations. This doesn't automatically imply things are worse in those nations, what it really implies is that those nations have more rich people than other nations, creating a larger wealth gap.

I believe I've explained this you before, but wealth inequality rose sharply in the 90's because a lot of people got rich from the tech boom. A lot of people were better off as a result, creating a higher level of perceived wealth inequality, when in reality nothing got worse. To be angry or envious over this fact is really a self-centered and greedy outlook.


As some point it's not propaganda. What level of inequality do you accept as not being propaganda?

I still think this chart I made back in 2012 shows how huge the wealth gap really is: American Wealth Inequality Represented Graphically (155,000,000 vs 400). Like I said capitalism isn't perfect, and if you think my goal is to mindlessly promote unhinged capitalism you're mistaken. Clearly there's a level of inequality which is not acceptable.

However I would argue the single greatest cause behind such a high level of inequality is the debt based system we use for money, I made a thread not long ago explaining why when the government spends money it doesn't have by creating more debt, it increases the cost of everything via inflation and that new money flows back the rich anyway.

The goal shouldn't be to lower the wealth gap, a higher number of rich people is generally a good thing. The goal should really be increasing the average standard of living for everyone, and it's clear this is easier to achieve in nations which prefer free market capitalism over nanny statism. That is a topic I've written about intensively in the past, so I wont do so here.

It is not a real manifesto. Cannibal Democrats and their media shills have thousands of copies like this with only subtle variations ready to upload at a moment's notice when these uncommon and random attacks occur. It's literally an objective of the global engagement center. To influence targeted populations with partnerships in Media, academia, with ngo's etc..

It's something from video game speak. It is a non playable character, typically someone or thing you don't combat with or against. However, NPC's can have varrying degrees of Importance in many games. So I don't believe that it is an appropriate term for the basis of the op. Many NPC's are crucial to finishing a game, or getting a better outcome.
