    Regarding this trade war against China.

    What do you guys think will happen? I believe Obama said it correctly..when he said "some of those jobs aren't coming back." Of course prices will rise across all fields (common household goods to yes..even the plastic straws and styrofoam cups). Lose Lose situation between both nations? Should there be an "unequal balance" between the U.S and China? I mean, is that normative? Or are the costs (after increase) actually the normal value when the balance is achieved? I sound like I'm talking about Jedis.

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    After talking in this forum, either my thought process is flawed regarding this subject, or "their" thought process is seriously flawed. Please tell me. What justice or right, does a individual have..suddenly deciding that his or her neighbor is making "too much money?" What is "too much money?" What "right" does a person have, to the wealth of their neighbors? (who cares how they got their wealth. who cares if their family sold Whiskey during the days of Al Capone. that's not the focus here)

    Electoral college, is one of the core of what this nation is about. This nation is not a Democracy contrary to what the popular belief is.

    Yes. Alabama went to Draconian style with their Abortion laws. They can "always" take their case to the Supreme court who has already decided through Roe v Wade.

    "The Founders were determined to forestall the inherent dangers of what James Madison called “the tyranny of the majority.” So they constructed something more lasting: a republic. Something with checks and balances. A system of government carefully balanced to safeguard the rights of both the majority and the minority (Heritage foundation, 2018)." https://www.heritage.org/conservatism/commentary/preventing-the-tyranny-the-majority

    Yea. I kind of suspected that from you. After all, "we" are the group that is this according to "you guys?" https://www.huffpost.com/entry/a-vote-for-trump-was-a-hate-crime_b_58249871e4b0edfa1393613a

    "Then why are there so many homeless in America?" -There would be "many more" homeless. Has that thought crossed anyone's mind? There are American homeowners, that lent out their extra bedrooms for the needy to stay in. No amount of "homeless programs" established has solved homelessness here in this nation and only resulted in more bureaucracy. I tend to think it this way. Let the religious act like the religious. There is a reason why we are giving the religious a tax break here in this nation. Ask yourself these questions though (is interesting). Who is making money, because there are homeless people? Who has position(s), because of homeless people? How are they being funded? Can we agree at least, that it would be insanity to expect everyone who makes a living & has a position due to a -situation,- to actually solve that situation? "Where is the compassion in your healthcare system that allows children to die because their treatment is classed as "experimental"? -Experimental drugs should be accessible for Americans. That is my stand on this. And it looks like the current President agrees.(https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/05/30/trump-signs-right-try-experimental-drugs-terminal-patients/655954002/) I say give Americans the "right" to purchase medicine from even overseas. Need more competition because prices are just too high here in this nation. "Where is the compassion for 12 and 13 year old girls who get pregnant in Alabama from rape?" -This debate has already been settled in the courts: Roe v Wade. Now, this is a thought that is worthy to think about: (https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/when-does-human-life-begin/) Then again, I can't dare tell a woman what to do or not to do with their own body. It's their body. Let them do whatever they want to (the same thing can be applied to drugs as well). But I do stress the point: Just don't expect me (or other citizens) to pay for your vice(s). (example of "paying for it:" through taxes or the increase in crime statistics). Then we'll be "dandy."

    What you guys believe: http://time.com/4810846/china-energy-climate-change-paris-agreement/ What reality is: http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Some-60-per-cent-of-the-Yellow-River,-the-cradle-of-Chinese-civilisation,-is-dead-7995.html http://news.asiantown.net/r/34859/china-s-toxic-air-pollution-resembles-nuclear-winter-say-scientists You were saying?

    Dude, NK is never going to give up their nukes. Why would they? They made Clinton feed them with the promise of "peace," while they were developing nukes during that era.

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    Of course the wealthy tolerate disasters better than the poor. Just like the reason a well prepared person can handle getting lost in the forest better than the occasional hiker.
  12. KonichiwaRN

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    Again. There is this whole concept of "giving freely" versus, a group of population trying to tax the "wealthy" on their NET asset. What burden does the middle class pay for the wealthy? In your strange world, the wealthy doesn't pay ANY taxes? Are you talking about investment returns? That's another ballgame. Oh. And I love it how nobody is trying to mention the outrageous cry from the Democrat politicians..saying how the WEALTHY should be taxed through their NET WORTH. Not their income. Not their salary. Their "NET WORTH." Bunch of thieves. Now insert the usual -oh for whatever b.s. excuse here-
  13. KonichiwaRN

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    Obviously the logic of a flat tax isn't making sense for people. So here it is. This is one of the main "themes" of being a conservative. Flat rate tax --the money that is made through that, is the only money that the government works with.

    Regarding this trade war against China.

    Expecting North Korea to give up their nukes, is like expecting a Democrat politician to state that "everyone" in this nation should be taxed at a flat rate..regardless of income.
  15. KonichiwaRN

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    So we should establish a flat tax rate for all. I have no idea how Romney got his taxes to that rate, but Utah has a flat tax rate for everyone capped at 5%, regardless of income. In regards to federal income tax rates..that should be just a flat tax rate as well.

    Exists on paper. Enforcement of it is as real as the Raiders winning.

    Regarding this trade war against China.

    Yea. Someone didn't get the message. Companies = jobs, can move around. Why do you think Arizona and Texas got such a boom in both businesses and population? Hello Californians! Keep on passing legislature to make entrepreneurs and businesses pay up more.
  18. KonichiwaRN

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    Exactly my point Tweety. I see injustice & discrimination when the WEALTHY pay a HIGHER PERCENTAGE. Now, look at everyone spin this.
  19. KonichiwaRN

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    What "taxes" are the middle class paying for the wealthy? and WHAT government "programs" do the WEALTHY use? EVERYONE should pay taxes. Flat rate. But since that is not possible, keep focus please? The main theme is the "group of population" that are trying to TAX the WEALTHY by their NET ASSET. Get it? NET ASSET = what a third party establishes your "wealth status" as.

    As a first generation American..

    I think it's weird that people yelling "anti-fascism and racism" are going around banning public speakers from speaking at their schools. If you don't agree with the message, why silence the message? I see footage after footage of people just chanting that "hey hey, ho ho" chant after they barge into a speaking event. Is it just me or are Trump supporters being targeted by these so called anti-fascists? Kind of reminds me of European history. The brownshirts going around banning public speakers from speaking out loud.

    As a first generation American..

    My political views are "socially progressive?" Nah. We (immigrants around me) see exactly what the so called liberal party is about. Increase taxes, punish success, and establish "any reason" to again, increase income taxes. Thus punishing working Americans so that "everyone can get a fair shot." Just that definition of the "fair shot," is seriously flawed.
  22. KonichiwaRN

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    "A majority of people support Democratic proposals to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, according to a poll conducted this month for The New York Times by the online research platform SurveyMonkey, though their opinions vary between specific plans. Voters overwhelmingly see income inequality as a problem the government should be trying to address. Support for taxing the rich cuts across party lines: A majority of Republicans support a proposal from Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a Democratic presidential candidate, to tax a group of the wealthiest Americans on their net worth (NY times, 2019)." https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/19/business/economy/wealth-tax-elizabeth-warren.html Yup. No wrong doings here. Just blatant people deciding that other citizens have "too much money." You guys were looking for the evidence? Right? Now let's spin!

    I guess this is another fake deal by Trump?

    But the allure of profit drives the majority of research. I think something like this would be good for our nation. But why only certain drugs? Why not all drugs paid by Medicare? "President Trump proposed on Thursday that Medicare pay for certain prescription drugs based on the prices paid in other advanced industrial countries — a huge change that could save money for the government and for millions of Medicare beneficiaries..Countries included in the Trump administration’s drug price comparisons, besides the United States, were Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. (NY Times, 2018)."
  24. Just saw this on the news. https://www.politico.com/newsletters/politico-pulse/2019/05/10/gileads-big-gift-to-trumps-hiv-strategy-617339 I think it's a nice thing? A "evil capitalistic" company deciding to donate that much instead of people passing legislature saying that they "must donate."

    Then those very health care providers that took care of her, are guilty (if your say is real). Nobody "dismisses" complaints by a patient.
