Ole Empty shelf Bernie. Coming to a store near you, if elected.


He'll be the first President to do a ribbon cutting ceremony at a new store with no products for sale 😎

The irony was that the shelves are empty because of capitalism and they didn't pay their bills. Not because of a shortage or anything.

Under socialism, the shelves would only be empty if there were no water available, because water is an essential for life and therefore something that the government would do something about providing.

What is Trump's government doing about it? You know, the current government that should be ensuring that essentials are available?

... crickets...

That would be a distributor, local and or state issue you dolt.

If they are unable to manage their finances, then it is an issue beyond capitalism, rather, financial education and learning to spend within your means.

Why would somebody have money to buy water in a bottle and yet not have money to pay a water bill ?

I know why !!

Democrat Arithmetic 😃

Water isn't money.

The store is in this situation under the current government.

Yet you are blaming the opposition and that seems reasonable to you, and other posters here.

LOL....

So, your government isn't?

How do a party, or group, who are not in government, control a major city?

Wouldn't that make a complete mockery of your political system if an un-elected group had the executive control of major national infrastructure and your actual elected government did nothing about it?

It would appear that the elected government would be failing in its duty to support the Constitution, in allowing itself to be usurped by a powerful rogue group.

The government, and particularly the executive branch of the government, are supposed to defend the Constitution against all threats both domestic and foreign.

Reminds me of Jeremy Corbyn (Labour UK) sitting on the floor of a train and claiming there was no seats only for Virgin to release the CCTV of the train that showed a ton of empty seats in the same carriage lol lol and then he tried to defend his fakery by saying "They were booked" or "I wanted to sit next to my wife" lol lol and people still called him and still do the "New kind of politician" lol.

I'm not saying what he stands for is extreme but man do they play this up. I would love a picture to come out with the shelves just out of view be full up with water lol lol or the manager to come out and say "Well there wasn't any bottled water there because we had to move them because..." please with a cherry on top let that happen lol.

I studied in astrophysics. I don't actually have a PhD but I did begin study towards that end.

My excuse is that I moved countries and took far too long a hiatus from my studies to simply resume the academic course.

I also got myself a 'real job' in the interim and decided that I liked the money and what it bought.

Venezuela is under socialism, and there's lots of things not available that are considered necessities for life. Newborns there have cardboard boxes for bassinets in the hospitals, but you are right about one thing: everybody does have the same thing -- NOTHING.

I get you are from New Zealand, but perhaps you are unaware that the US operates under several layers of governance - Federal, state and local, and that ideally, the Federal level should have the least impact in your daily life?

State and local governments impact how you life on and day to day basis far more. It's why the cost of living is astronomical in states like Cali, even worse in cities in Cali like LA and San Fran, but living is dirt cheap in a small town in a red state like Missouri or Wyoming or one of the Dakotas. Someone barely making starvation wages in one of the first places I mentioned could live like a king in one of the latter even with the same Federal government over all because of the disaparate impacts of state and local policies.

Yes, Venezuela is not doing well.

However, Norway, Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, France and Denmark are all social democracies and are all doing rather well.

Exactly! What’s the difference between Venezuela and Norway? US embargo’s and economic warfare surely don’t have anything to do with it. At least, not so long as you don’t care about facts.

You do realize that people use resources, resources such as water? With states like Ca having water shortages, do you think it’s a good idea to have open borders and allow every third world country to come here and use our limited resources? The left seems to think that’s a brilliant idea. I would say Trump is trying to insure that we have the basic necessities but a fairly large group of people seem to think that’s not in America’s best interest.

Maybe if we took the money we spend on welfare for illegals and used it for the betterment of the citizens of our country we could resolve many issues we face such as insuring that we have a supply of clean water? Once again, there’s a group of people that seem to think this is a bad idea. So yeah, it’s all Trump’s fault right? If not let’s just blame him anyways, yes?

Even in little New Zealand, we have tiered government.

Are you suggesting that the party of the current incumbent has no representation at state or local level?

So a person can't pay their water bill but can afford bottled water by the case?

I'm confused.
