Re: Trump’s America

According to our resident 2p2 experts, the fix is to bring in more unskilled labor to drive wages down.

Unless you mean the Amazons of the world, in which case that's a solution in search of a problem.

The percentage of people who don't pay taxes has got to be near 0%.

Seems like a slight of hand going on. There are people who have no income. The people who are in that situation are usually children, disabled, students or caregivers. If they have no income then there's nothing to tax. Then there's taxable income, but taxable income just means income that we choose to tax. We can choose to tax more or to tax less. That's the fix.

The fact that he's probably packing heat discourages it.

Guy might have a gun. Let him carry on with his bad self.

ETA: This seems like the same crap I hear every day wrt to AOC and ****. We shouldn't bring up possible socialist ideas because they will get ripped on, blah blah blah. WE can't rip this guy because he could possibly have a gun and decide to shoot us all? JFC. My state doesn't require any concealed carry permit. Do I have to avoid any conversation with someone because they might be packing? **** that!

Re: Trump’s America

If you thought you'd seen the last of Nazi Beer Pong High School in Orange County, CA: YOU WERE WRONG

Nazi Fliers Left at California High School Already Reeling From Swastika Photos

Quote:
A Southern California high school that has sought to quell outrage after photographs surfaced of students giving a Nazi salute at a party is reeling again after officials say fliers with Nazi swastikas were found on campus over the weekend.

Late Saturday night or early Sunday morning “Nazi posters” were placed on the campus of the school, Newport Harbor High, a spokeswoman for the school district, Adriana Angulo, said Wednesday. School officials immediately called the Newport Beach police department to report them, Ms. Angulo said. She described the act as “vandalism.”

Officers responded to the school on Sunday morning and discovered about 10 fliers, some with Nazi symbols on them, said Heather Rangel, a spokeswoman for the police department.
Nazis know a hot recruiting center when they see one, apparently. And this reveals the utter fraud behind the idea of "healing" after such incidents:

Quote:
Leaders on campus and in the community have appeared optimistic that the students involved had learned their lesson and that the situation offered a teachable moment of sorts. Newport Harbor student leaders united in a call to end hate; some students reportedly wrote open letters of apology; and even Ms. Schloss, 89, told reporters that after meeting with students, she thought they had “learned a lesson for life.”

“I think this school has got the message,” she said last week.
"teachable moment" lololol. "Ms. Schloss" in this paragraph is Anne Frank's stepsister, who spoke to the school last week. We are so ****ing desperate, as a society, to put things behind us and engage in these bull**** displays of "healing".

Re: Trump’s America

Utah congresscritter says he's "an ethnic" because he's "a Westerner" and also the Green New Deal is "genocide"

Quote:
“For many people who live in the West, but also in rural and urban areas, the ideas behind the Green New Deal are tantamount to genocide,” Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) said at a news conference held with other GOP House members in Washington. “That may be an overstatement, but not by a whole lot.”
Quote:
After the news conference was over, Axios reporter Amy Harder pointed out that the term “genocide” refers to the deliberate mass murder of a particular national or ethnic group and asked Bishop how the Green New Deal fits that definition.

“I’m an ethnic,” Bishop said. “I’m a Westerner.”

“And you think the Green New Deal is going to kill you?” Harder asked.

“If you actually implement everything they want to,” Bishop replied. “Killing would be positive if you implement everything the Green New Deal actually wants to.”
If you failed to detect the comedy routine the representative was performing, he later clarified:

Quote:
Later on Thursday, Bishop said in a statement to the Salt Lake Tribune that he had been joking, but that he fully believed that the plan would be catastrophic. “My comments were obviously not meant literally, and should not detract from the fact that the so-called Green New Deal is born of attitudes that show no respect for the lives and livelihoods of the American people,” he said.

As somebody who has concealed carried in the past. There is no where on that man's body to conceal a gun.

Re: Trump’s America

From the personal files and actually saying the quiet parts aloud - was at the bank which is inside a grocery store chatting with one of the managers about football and how his Steelers let AB/Bell go because of money. “I’m not racist at all but ...~insert racist comment how ‘the blacks’ aren’t good with money anyway so why does it matter how much they get”.

There was one teller and one other customer within earshot as well.

Heh. Athletes seem to be pretty bad with money, but as a class I'd put MD's up with them. A healthy percentage of older docs are white and unbelievably crappy in handling money. We had two separate major scams targeting MD's in my area about 15 and 20 years ago, and it was laughable how many guys got cleaned out twice.
