  • The Climate Change Conspiracy

    America is not a republic or democracy. America is a corporatocracy. The corporations are the de facto governance of the United States. They write the laws, rules, regulations, national, and foreign policies. They control both political parties, the American government, and its citizen. When you vote, you are only voting for the people the corporations are going to control. The corporation's millions of dollars, their special interest groups, and lobbyist has circumvented the American people and corrupted the voting process. The corrupt corporations, democrats, and republican parties play both sides against the middle and the American people are in the middle getting squeezed and played. The Media don't report on these corporation's influence because they own the new media

                @Anthony Valdez Yes angry that young gullible people like you, fall for candidates bull shit.
                What % of legal citizens ever heard of Yang? 1% at best.
                Funny he or you didn't say where the $$ comes from.

                @Anthony Valdez Ok kid, and my guess you're no more then 25.
                You clearly don't research.
                With no Trump tax cut, unemployment would still be Obama 5+%, GDP never got over 2% under Obama. Fact Obama 8 years set the weakest recover in History. Look it up.
                You telling me Obama had policies to cut 13 million on food stamps?
                So lets just cut to facts. Tell me even ok ne Obama Dem policy that created a new job?
                Workers 401k and IRAs are up 36% since Nov 2016.
                Tell me how my union investments into retirement funds would be at this level under Clinton or Obama.
                Liberals hate business and Wall St.
                Now go to your room a research facts, not bs from your ass.

                Jack Soxman There’s a lot of negative assumptions here about a complete stranger. You sound like a generally angry person.

                1. Yang’s plan to give the Freedom Dividend to ten families doesn’t require anyone to donate to his campaign and it doesn’t require anyone, if they win or lose, to vote for Yang. This isn’t illegal, corporate media has been spreading that what Yang did was illegal but in all of these articles no one ever actually points to what he did that was illegal. They just say, it was “inappropriate,” in which case, I don’t care about what most career politicians think is inappropriate or not, and considering you’re a trump supporter, I’m surprised you were so quick to accept the mainstream media’s narrative.
                2. It was a light-hearted joke dude, get over yourself. Also, there is some truth to it. Asian cultures, in general, emphasize education and prestigious careers like medicine more so than other ethnic groups.
                3. What makes you so eager to say that Trump is, in any way, responsible for our current economy? We’re in the 10th year of a fairly consistent economic growth and recovery period. Was Trump also responsible for surging job numbers in 2015? The role of a president on the economy is almost always overstated. If Trump helped the US economy at all he did it by being a “pro-business” republican. That alone makes the mega-rich comfortable in dealing with the stock market. But any of Trump’s nominal benefits to the economy were destroyed completely by his tariff-measuring contest with our most important trade partners. We’ve lost tens of billions of dollars (some have valued the additional cost burden for US consumers/businesses and our allies’s consumers/businesses at $120.8 billion https://www.americanactionforum.org/research/the-total-cost-of-trumps-new-tariffs/ ).
                4. I’m not hoping for a recession because I’m not a sociopath and I don’t want any more unnecessary suffering in this country. I love America. (Why assume the worst about a person?)
                5. I’ve actually studied hydraulic fracturing with energy experts and energy economists. I know about the new methods that are being employed that reduce emissions immensely, and as long as the fossil fuel companies continue to invest billions in cleaner tech, as they have been for years, I completely support fracking. Fracking, especially in low population areas, has been, perhaps, the greatest geopolitical boost in modern U.S. history.
                6. GDP isn’t an accurate indicator of what should be our top priorities as human beings first. Bankruptcy is high, optimism is low, and with suicide and drug abuse spiking, life expectancies have been going down for three years. That hasn’t happened in America since the Spanish Flu in 1918. And with automation and AI entering into our economy, GDP will only become worse at measuring what matters. Autonomous trucks will be amazing for GDP, (some have valued their impact on GDP at approximately $800 billion https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.govtech.com/fs/automation/Autonomous-Vehicles-to-Have-Huge-Impact-on-Economy-Tech-Sector.html%3fAMP ) but catastrophic for the 3.5-4 million American truck drivers that will be left with nothing but a high school diploma (mass majority will not be trained or knowledgeable enough to work in emerging tech markets), years of chronic health problems (often leads to drug use), a pink slip (if they’re lucky), and a lot of bitterness and pain. Do you think Trump has a plan for this? Do you think he even knows that this is happening?

                @Anthony Valdez Yang trying to BUY votes= discussing and could be illegal. And you know Yang knows doctors cause he's Asian?
                Not one if these wackos can beat trump.
                They didn't ask about the economy and jobs, because its GREAT!
                They only talked about the Tariff issue, because they are cheering China and other countries screwing the US.
                They talked like minorities have never been worse off on jobs.
                I bet you're hoping for a recession and layoffs.
                I bet you have no clue to " fracking" and Americans independence in energy.
                And Americans with a brain and sick of the Race Card. Look up GDP and retirement savings. Na, you liberals only want citizens and non citizens, sucking on Gov tits.

                Jack Soxman they talked about tariffs and trade, even specifically focusing on US-China relations for a solid 15-20 minutes. Also, Yang brought up the economy in almost every one of his answers.

                                      I have seen the Asian voting characteristics in my area. They don't vote based on race. Hence, Yang doesn't have a chance. But his extreme FREE STUFF policies will get a lot of the black and Latino votes.
                                      Lets see if any one of them is actually sane and sensible. Not catering to blacks/browns, no FREE STUFF baiting and not being a push over to China and Russia.
                                      Tough love mentality.

                                                  Who will tax millionaires and billionaires the most? 
                                                  How many types of debt will they promise to wipe out?  How much free tuition will everyone get?
                                                  Will Medicare for all cover illegals, dentures, union members and yoga classes?
                                                  Will they pander to some interest groups by speaking in Spanish, offering reparations, or decrying "white privilege?"
                                                  Will Buttigieg recall how he attacked the enemy on the computer?  Will Biden recall how he attacked the enemy in WWII?  Will Warren recall how she attacked Custer at Little Big Horn? Will O'Rourke recall how he led the attack on the Alamo?  Will Bernie recall how he was the first to attack Rockefeller and J.P Morgan?
                                                  Stay tuned.

I’ve had many conversations where that was the central issue but we wasted so much time talking in circles because the other person didn’t want to just come out and say that they don’t want a female president. I personally don’t see a candidate’s outer appearance as being important when deciding who you want to vote for, but, hey, you’re an American, it’s your vote.

Angela Merkel looks just about as “menacing” as warren but she’s been known for being an intelligent hardass that has seen Germany’s economy bloom for years. Warren had a similar reputation for decades when she was a law professor and practicing bankruptcy lawyer. So again, what about her physical appearance do you find so disqualifying? Let me try and speed this process along, is it just because she’s a woman?
