Re: Sorry Democratic Socialists, you are still pushing poison

And once again, everyone: The president of the United States does not control the economy! I agree there are a lot of factors that affect economic growth that is beyond the control of any President. But that does not mean the President has no effect on the economy at all. Don't you agree that Trump...

Re: The November 2018 Congressional election mega thread

Anyway, a year ago I was predicting that in 2018 the Democrats will take the House but probably not the Senate, and I haven't seen much to make me change my mind since. Given that the Ohio 12th was so close, the GOP's House majority is doomed.

Not at the federal level. We have way too much government, we need to reduce it by 75% or so.
That would basically be Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the military.

Re: 'competitive' my foot!

If the USA were truly as competitive as it likes to believe itself to be then it would not need tariff protection. It doesn't need it. Tariff protectionism, building walls along its borders to keep out the latter-day barbarian hordes are the hallmarks of a society on the defensive; a country with a...

Re: Sorry Democratic Socialists, you are still pushing poison

I don't think America will become Socialist because it is a high IQ country. People like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are the American equivalents of Hugo Chavez and Robert Mugabe. The majority of Americans will realize that these are charlatans and won't vote for them. I hope. Easil...

What is the problem exactly.
The real problem is that the people who think they're making these decisions don't know how technology works, and have never heard of the Streisand effect. It's just information. You can't stop it.

Re: How BRICS Plus clashes with the US economic war on Iran

In another forum I'm on, someone was talking about the U.S. occupying Iran, and I basically said it doesn't matter what one thinks of that, because the U.S. would never succeed at invading Iran in the first place to get far enough to have that problem. The U.S. military has already bitten off more ...
