I was an Owner Operator trucker. I drove ONE truck. I grossed around a quarter million dollars a year. I had a NET in the 30's...but GROSS is what matters on a business. I was a wee small fry in business of any meaning. 1 million isn't hard to get to AT ALL if someone has a small business that works. Think of farmers for their overhead vs. what they see...


This class warfare stuff is divide and conquer..US ALL.

One thing I can say is that they both can actually relay their positions faaaaar better than their bosses. This debate is three times more informing than the first one.

Right.

That is small business owners.


What?

You're crazy, you make 1 million income a year, yes you are wealthy.

And now, that isn't most small businesses.


Someone who is earning a million bucks earns a million bucks less their liabilities: operating and fixed costs.

I missed the first 15 minutes of the debate, but to me it really seems they like to interrupt eachother.

At the moment it seems to me that Biden is doing pretty good, alot better than I thought.

I dated a crazy woman once who went on and on about a job she had once where she cleared "a quarter of a million a year"... come to find out, it was $25,000 and she didn't realize that wasn't a quarter of a million

Thankfully, we didn't date very long!

Bidens animation is killing me

While I am enjoying most of the debate so far, it is reminding me of two brothers trying one up each other at the dinner table telling tall tales. The host is definitely not doing her part of keeping order and control, while keeping the debate on track. They are trying to talk over each other way too much, what happened to the two minute rule per question rule?

Sounds like more excuses.

So Biden is having too much fun kicking Ryan's tail and Obama attended the moderator's wedding.

Just face it, Biden is killing him.

If so.. who put their hands on it?

Congress?

If so.. who created the doom scenario for both?

I am most likely wrong but that's the thought that came to mind.. can anyone set me straight on that?

The money for Social Security flows in and it flows out on the general fund budget numbers as one looks at it. There haven't been protected funds...and that is why it's going broke.

If the money HAD been protected on general interest rates that even Gov't money grows at, it would be flush and black forever. Literally...by compounding interest of SO MUCH. That so much...was what's been spent for pork in the budgets of 4 + decades.

I expected better from Ryan. He keeps getting hammered by his own admission.

Wow, Biden is coming off like a smug jerk.

This debate is terrible.
There's no real time being given to EITHER candidate, it's just both of them trying to talk over each other.
The moderator needs to restore some order.

When Ryan is digging his hole faster and deeper, Biden actually stays quiet and lets him get in even deeper... kinda funny


THEN calls him on his lies, even better!!

Even the moderator is talking over Ryan! That was hilarious. Did you see the way he looked at the camera when she did that? He was like "really?"

He's getting his ass stomped but I do admit that his politeness will probably come out as a positive in the end.

Consensus seems to be Biden! Thanks! Now back to my story about fictional intrigues and power plays and I'll leave y'all to watch yours!


BTW it got nailed a couple of pages back. Funny how we focus so much on the POTUS and VP, every four years, while career Congressmen do all the looting, have no term limits, and, for the most part, don't give a hoot about America.

Focus our attention on the fireworks - so that we're always looking up while they rob our house.
