Let me simplify it for you. Americans, on average, are not having enough babies. Immigrants and their families add to the working population. Without them, economic growth stalls because there aren’t enough workers to do all the jobs.
Complex topics are complicated. Dotup is right, of course, and her citation was spot on, even at the risk of explaining the topic in more detail than some might prefer.
But nuance and detail matter. Those who cannot follow along tend to be unpersuaded by evidence to the contrary. Difficulty in following context and ambiguity is sort of like a learning disability that refuses to honor the messy reality of complex and ambiguous circumstances.
Members of the armed forces don’t create foreign policy, they execute it. It’s ABSOLUTELY not their fault that they went to fight in stupid wars.
Well Kenny, some people say you are completely correct. I’ve heard this about Mike repeatedly. You know I actually think the lying media reported this a few times, and antifa supplied the underwear!! My goodness, some people have said Mike is really in favor of democracy. But I don’t believe it. I’ve done my own research. It’s definitely the underwear thing.
(Examples of Trump rhetoric and his citation of fact)
Only vulgar because what he is depicting is vulgarity personified. And really, not at all over exaggerating. In fact, I always try to figure out what is incorrect about his depiction. But it’s spot on EVERY time. Nothing over the top.
The reality itself is vulgar and over the top.
Not going to argue about the raccoons on Wall Street, however, the government and its federal reserve are in control of a large part of the money supply. Inflation is now and always has been a monetary phenomenon. It is also the only mechanism by which the combined indebtedness of the government and private sector can be managed. Inflation is a debt jubilee played out over time.
Biden has done a great job, and has passed important legislation into law, restored US standing in the world, and rebuilt important government functions.
By contrast, the republican platform is nonexistent, and their standard bearer, Trump, is a psychopathic malignant narcissist. His minions are liars and traitors to democracy.
So what choice is there for a patriot? We have to bail out the water and right the ship first, and do so while the republicans are actively shooting holes in the hull.
Yeah, there’s no difference between the parties. None at all.
No Mike, people are upset that Trump did not cede power when defeated at the polls, and then fomented a violent coup attempt. THAT’S what people are upset about. The end of democracy. The rise of fascism.
What about those FACTS disturbs you? That anti-regressives are upset? That the regressive cult keeps lying? Huh. You equate patriotism with treason. Sure Mike. That’s persuasive.
The biggest, most intractable problem with the death penalty is that the legal process is flawed and innocent people are put to death. In this case, the identity of the murderer is clear. But the justice system is flawed and innocents have themselves been murdered by the state.
The death penalty is not a deterrent. It is a revenge killing. And in many cases, it is carried out wrongly. I have no sympathy for the Parkland murderer. Death would be a good solution if it were ALWAYS applied property. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
This is like the abortion issue. There are a lot of nuances and ambiguities that need to be considered. I would always err on the side of life. Once someone has been murdered, there’s no turning back to correct mistakes. And I agree that life in a supermax is way worse than death, although the endless appeals are an issue. One more ambiguity.
For all the ideologues out there, think hard about what I’ve posted.
Brilliant! Thanks for the post. So so true.
Yet Mike, your regressive party of lying miscreants refuses to negotiate in good faith to produce comprehensive immigration reform legislation.
You guys have no solutions. No policies. No,platform except to moan and complain and point fingers. Nothing constructive. Nothing even remotely resembling a platform. Just whining about stuff you could help solve.
But you won’t help solve anything, will you? Solving problems is just too much work for the party of lazy blowhards.
