LMAO the irony that those are almost liberal states too and the most expensive, highest gas tax of any state (Cali). Almost impossible to get a carry permit (ny) ohh and itís only 1200 a month for a pod (sf). The democrats are the all talk party (they lost to trump) lol. Shows how incompetent they are.

Now dems want to get Americans on more govt programs so youíll never vote republican again and be trapped voting for dem or youre free money from the government will be taken away.

The democratic debate showed how out of reality these dems are. All they did was talk sh*t about our current govt. it was a sh*t show with most of them just bombarding the other , basically a screaming match of who can go louder.

Itís insane that anyone would think more people on big govt programs would be great for this country. If you think politics are sketchy now wait till the govt decides which companies we are allowed to use and not use. Itís all about money baby I think Hillary spent 3x more money than trump , another ironic mention , with her being for the middle class. Lmao. This is all a ploy for votes from low iq, poor people and probably illegals. Remember these are the people that want to charge an American for not paying for health insurance but they want to give an illegal alien who trespassed into our country free healthcare. I wish I was wrong about this info as well but itís all a pretty smart con.

Think about it , this is Bernieís how many time running? Now whatís his next big ďgoalĒ? Paying off student debts , his base is pretty much college kids so the smartest thing he could do is say weíll pay off your college (this is just a ploy for a vote). Itís nobodyís fault you were dumb enough to pay 200k to goto some dumb school and pick a retarded major. Itís almost like a certain manipulation on these dumb n*ggas who pay attention to nothing and see this dumb white dude saying Iíll pay your debt! What you think those uneducated gonna do? They gonna say Bernie is the best.

Then we got the dude wanting to give someone 1k a month for free? Lol , explain to me how taking 1k from someone then handing another person 1k can create a trickle up effect? That sh*t donít work, poor people are poor because they have no ambition, no education , have 10 kids , etc. itís a poor reflection on yourself and maybe Iím different because I grew up poor so I saw first hand how dumb poor people are. They have a 700 dollar rent with 450 electric bill cause they leave the front door open with ac blowing out, or eating McDonaldís every night wondering why your life sucks.

Iím honestly worried what Democrats will do to capitalism , yeah itís not perfect but itís the closest thing we have for making a name for ourselves. People have to understand the lesser of two evils , thatís how you look at sh*t.

The biggest problem we are facing is mental heath issues , but no body talks about that, dems wonít even say its mental health for all the shootings. They think banning a gun thatís used in less then 2% of k*llings will solve the problem. Another retarded policy that doesnít help anyone just slowly takes more and more of our rights away.

This wealth tax is about the dumbest sh*t Iíve heard. They wanna tax Wall Street, these people who are top 1% of 1%. Guess what these are people with special skills that 99% cannot even comprehend , why should you suffer for being smarter? Or having more ambition? Is that fair? fu*k no itís not, you know how hard it is to make money on Wall Street? Then we take their money and give it to degenerates to go buy LV belts, Jordan sneakers , fast food everyday, drugs and expect these people to get their sh*t together. The thing is the dems donít care about that, once your hooked on the govt program then you really going to feel how great capitalism was when you actually had the opportunity to be something. Now your stuck on govt programs that you can never get off and can never vote for a republican again. Remember thereís way more poor people then rich so Iím sure the dems will find a way to trick honest Americans in voting for what ďtheyĒ believe in.
1. Trickle down doesn't work for the middle class. This has been shown in the growing economic inequality.

2. Over 60% of the billionaires in the US have inherited their wealth. So no most of them don't have some special skill or are smarter than the rest of the world.

3. This is only Bernies second run at president. Also if you take away peoples student debt it would create a huge boost in the economy because money would be spent in the actual economy, buying actual products and services. It would also allow more people to afford buying a house or starting a family or starting a business. All would do more good for the economy than keeping the debt.

4. I don't agree with Yangs interpretation of UBI, but it would definitely do more good for America than Trumps tax cuts for the rich. Again trickle down doesn't work. Corporations just hide the money offshore or use them for stock buy backs, both do nothing for our actual economy. Giving the middle and lower class money results in a high velocity of money in the economy because they'll actually spend the money.

There is so much more wrong with your rant but I honestly don't have the patience to keep going on about it.

I'll just ask you this, if we keep going the way we are the wealth gap will be even bigger, at what point do you start redistributing the wealth or do you just let the whole thing collapse?

And before you get triggered by "redistributing wealth", every capitalist acknowledges we need some taxes and the other way to redistribute wealth is increasing wages but corporations literally have an obligation to share holders to f*ght against that.

The 1950s

The 1950s

Often looked to as a model era, the 1950s may have been nearly as picture-perfect as Leave it to Beaver seemed to suggest―minimum wage workers could pay rent for a month for less than a week and a half of full-time work―or catch Disney'sCinderella for just over a half-hour of labor.

Minimum wage: $0.75/hour
Gas: $0.27 or 22m
Movie ticket: $0.48 or 38m
Rent: $42 or 56hrs

It's supposed to be though. Corporations got you thinking otherwise.
you pointed out the real tragedy, inflation has wiped out our spending power

It's not necessarily inflation. It's the wages haven't kept up with inflation.

The fact is the wealth gap will get worse , the more restrictions we put on the Wealthy? Think about who youíd rather have your money with? Someone who will reinvest it into their idea/company? Or some loser struggling to get a job , not really giving a fu*k about anything?

the crazy part is (at least in the RVA area) that it's cheaper to make mortgage payments on a townhome than to pay rent for somewhere half the size. Of course the way our Credit game goes, people are stuck paying for these overpriced apartments. Jimmy Mac tried to tell ya...THE RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH!
your absolutely right
