    Progressive Income Taxation.

    Couldn't agree more. Good for Harry, he (and like minded people) are moving from places like California, Massachusetts, and New York.
  2. Just saw this on the news. Gilead's big gift to Trump's HIV strategy 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."

    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)

    Oh, so you really think I wrote that with its "literal sense?" Let me explain it to you. Compare your beautiful country's "citizens" giving up their citizenship to become Americans, and the Americans giving up "their citizenship."

    So, we have a difference and a "split" on the word "Righteousness." Let's start with..the fruits of YOUR labor does not belong to me, and likewise vice versa.

    Usually, it's the Toms and the Dicks that wants "add ons." Of course, without paying for it. "TAX the wealthy!"

    Justice doesn't care about your feelings? How about that? If you want to enjoy the lifestyle, then pay up? That's fair, right?

    What's the image when one thinks about Jamestown? Especially that famous quote? (was not verbatim) Oh yea. Let's think about the town. Never mind John Smith.

    What makes you think The United States of America.. cares about what the rest of the world thinks of us? It's the world that is trying to come into our nation. Not the other way around.

    You should use the same prejudice against the certain individual who became a multi millionaire only after gaining seat in the political office.

    American Values

    https://historicjamestowne.org/history/pocahontas/john-smith/ As suspected. "nit picking." As if anyone didn't know Jamestown is NOT a human being. Wait. You guys had to explain that? James Town. Here you go. An American Value! https://rachelsruminations.com/individual-freedom-self-reliance-renunciation/ "Americans especially value self-reliance, and see it as a requirement to obtain and secure individual freedom. In other words, given their tremendous distrust of government—also stemming from the American Revolution—they expect to be successful through their own efforts. American heroes, generally, have all been self-made men (and, increasingly, women). Traditionally it was the frontiersmen and pioneers who set out on their own and were solely responsible for their own well-being. Later this view was applied to any successful businessman who, through his own efforts, went “from rags to riches.” This partially explains Trump’s supporters. This image—the self-reliant, self-made man—has been extended since the American Revolution to include a distinctly libertarian bent. Not only should people be responsible for their own welfare and prosperity, but the flip side of that idea, in the view of many Americans, is that the government doesn’t have the right to intervene, either to further an individual’s prosperity or to hinder it. This idea helps me explain the general emphasis on low taxes and small government." Well said indeed. A person that "renounced" his/her American citizenship. And this is a person that teaches American studies in Netherlands.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dnc-deputy-chair-keith-ellison-signals-support-for-antifa "Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, caused a stir on social media Wednesday when he posed with a book promoting the violent "Antifa" movement." "How far left has the Democratic Party shifted? Here's one answer: A violent antifa leader, recently charged with assaulting two Marines on the street in Philadelphia, had been working with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Democratic members of Congress to implement regulations on consumers and small businesses." https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/the-new-democratic-party-where-antifa-writes-the-financial-regulations Facts.

    Obviously, not "only" Trumpsters(?) care about Ben Shapiro. Just look! Too bad Socrates didn't teach that one (blocking entrances) with his debate lessons.

    Well, you won't care. But we (his viewers) care. And that also includes Congress. (https://thehill.com/homenews/house/342205-ben-shapiro-to-testify-in-congressional-hearing-on-college-campus-free-speech)
