Re: Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court

Here is a very telling video clip from the Senate Judiciary Committee today:

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Can you clarify? Does that mean that businesses should share their income or that they are allowed to legally become too much like robber barons?

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

What I'm referring to is their denouncement of big business, in general. Admittedly, they were vague and disjointed in regard to having an overall message. Meanwhile, look at how wealthy certain politicians tend to get while earning a public servant's salary. More importantly, bigger government mean...

Something people in the Occupy Movement (and wabash) don't understand:

Big Government IS Big Business.

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

So if I earn a billion dollars, you think I should cough up 900 million to the 'capable' hands of politicians and bureaucrats?

That may be the stupidest thing I've ever heard. More governmental intervention is never the answer.

Why is it that you think financial success should be punished?

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Professor Fate wrote:Those people on the riverbed have been there for years. So, tell me who in California had trickle down economic policies. On the federal level, I don't think Obama did.
You make an excellent point.
This is a prime example of trickle down social welfare.

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

It has only been beneficial to a very few. Let me throw this out. During the post WW II era (1945-1980) the top marginal tax rate (the so called 1%) was between 75% - 90%. The U.S. was the dominant economic, manufacturing, and military power in the world. Experiencing significant annual growth in G...

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Again, those figures are based on how many people are claiming unemployment benefits and completely ignores those who are not or whose benefits have run out. Also, employment always goes up in November and December due to temporaey holiday jobs. Politicians love to take credit for employment gains e...

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

The bullet train is becoming a dumberer idea by the day, but our poverty rate has almost nothing to do with our tax or political situation. Same as all those Midwestern red states' situations don't. I disagree and I'll be happy to share my views but I'd like to know what you attribute California's ...

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

So what's your point? Do you think trickle down economics are the problem? I'd like to keep the discussion on track here. If you think I'm a mindless follower of a political party and you can rattle me by denigrating Republican ideology, you couldn't be farther off the mark. So, why do you think the...

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Unemployment rates are based on the amount of people collecting unemployment benefits. It doesn't take into account the people who have used up those benefits and have given up. Take a ride along the Santa Ana riverbed or through the Fashion district in downtown LA for a sampling of the folks who ar...

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Yeah, the bullet train. (font=sarcasm) That ought to be a huge moneymaker. As for the dope stores, the strict regulation practically guarantees a huge tax windfall.(/sarcasm)

I know it hasn't happened in recent memory, but if and when the federal law is eenforce, the party's over.

Re: Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Our economy just keeps improving with home grown start ups. That just isn't true and won't be even if you repeat it three times while clicking the heels of your ruby red slippers. Over 10,000 companies have left California since 2007, including Toyota, Nissan NA, Carl's Jr, and Nestle. Jacobs Engin...

There aren't anywhere near enough start ups to pay for the Bullet train slush fund, let alone Jerry's kids. (Illegal aliens)

Re: New California declares 'independence' from California

Passports?

So, are you suggesting that travel within the US should have more stringent identification requirements than entry from a foreign country?
