YOu monumentally do not understand the role and scope small business play in society.

You speak with such utter ignorances of business in cheering on the death of the small business sector while assuming the Amazons will fill the void with nothing lost

Big businesses would not be looking to 'cash in cheap' by picking up every small business store front in small and mid sized towns across america. They do not need those spaces.

Those business shudder and then the restaurants and other small business who fed and serviced them close and those towns become ghosts towns.

Big business has a role (so drop your garbage that I hate them) and small business has a role. Again, you cheerleading and applauding the death of all small businesses and basically saying it cannot happen soon enough for you is just ignorance.



I wish i could say to educate yourself but based on your posting in this and other threads you seem to be trolling or beyond education so i expect you to keep up this line of 'good riddance to small business, Amazon and other big business will be enough', so this info is more for others than any hope you can comprehend it.

As i said, the posts you are making in many threads seem so disconnected from reality and common sense that the easiest explanation is simply that you are trolling.

If however you are not trolling, you are so closed minded even when provided the proper information that you seem beyond educating on a matter.

I doubt that if you read that article i linked you could back with anything more than still cheerleading the death of the small and mid sized business sector (mom and pa businesses and up) while assuming wrongly that the Amazons and Walmarts will simply fill the gap and no harm will be done.


You would not find any economist who agrees with your view. That small business are not needed and vital to America as both employers and wealth builders but I doubt that stops you espousing an ignorant view.

I would challenge you to find any economist or business analysts that does not put value on a mix of big business, small business and new businesses as VITAL to the American economy. I would challenge you to find a SINGLE one. Maybe one or more exists as you can usually find people on all sides of every issue but on this topic I doubt it.

And that is because I think your views are so far out there that you may have accomplished the impossible task of being truly alone on it. Beyond reason, beyond education.

Collapse of small businesses is not a step towards that goal. In the same sense that burning down your house not really a step towards moving to an apartment.

Not sure what that means. Full communism? Or dictatorship/Oligarchs?

Getting rid of small business and only wanting Amazon mega corps seems at odds with that unless you thinking Oligarchs, like Russia.

I do not say that to diminish what he did. But if he had $3B in assets he almost certainly had $4B in debt. YOu are generating great income from those assets and making payments on the debt which is structured long term but you are not billionaire from that.

We know that because of how easily all of his business collapsed one after another into bankruptcy. Trump appears to be perhaps the biggest losing business man in US history when it comes to capital and investor cash.

I don't know how you can say Trump aged the best. We have never had an obese lump as POTUS before. He is also clearly addicted to drugs which often leaves him slurring and incomprehensible. He is just a mess, generally.
Seek help, you'll be happier.

Meanwhile, the president's plan for reelection is to lie about everything repeatedly:

Sorry I thought you liked Trump.

He must really be in trouble if he's lost traditional right-wingers like you.

I will.

The difference between us is I can back up what I say far better than you can. So if anyone has TDS it is you.

Re: Poo Flinger Containment Thread (aka The thread of many names)

Go floppy!
Quote:
One of Britain’s most senior police officers has launched an angry tirade against Extinction Rebellion protesters going “all floppy” when they get arrested.

Sir Stephen House, the deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan police, said the tactic of going limp was a “flipping nuisance” as it required extra officers to drag protesters away.

House told a London assembly police and crime committee hearing: “We have asked them to stop being floppy. And that might seem like a silly thing to say, but when we arrest them and pick them up, they go all floppy, which is why you see four or five officers carrying them away. It’s a complete waste of officers’ time, and a complete pain in the neck.”
Quote:
A spokeswoman for XR confirmed that its protesters were encouraged and trained to go limp when being arrested. “It is part of our non-cooperation tactics. It is totally peaceful,” she said.

Looks like he got himself banned as well. Sheesh, going to be hard to have fun with any of these people after Trump loses if they all get banned before then!

Kelhus ban is grand and all, but you should check out Luckbox's subsequent meltdown in the POG politics thread...

Re: Poo Flinger Containment Thread (aka The thread of many names)

What happened there was ridiculous. Kelhus is banned for posting about elephants and their T levels. Mod can't even point to any actual offending posts. Obviously I'm going to be upset.
I actually liked Kelhus and enjoyed interacting with him.
Why ev psych sets people off so much I'm still trying to figure out. You'd think its a bunch of fundamentalist Christians he was dealing with but it's not.

No. That was pretty much actually it. We don't know for sure but that was what his last post dealt with-- elephants and stuff about some study where they gave sports cars to young men to drive to measure their testosterone.
That was the last straw.
