    Presidential Election 2020

    Many of you said you don’t understand why it’s so expensive in the first place. Anyone looked into it? Instead of taxing and throwing money at the problem, why don’t we figure that out and fix it?

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    I dont have a specific source in mind, and I’m not completely disagreeing with you. If you were selling widgets, wouldn’t you already be selling them at a price that maximizes your profit? So, you are likely to keep the price the same to sell just as many widgets. In this case the tariff is eating into your profit. Maybe the cost of the tariff eats up your profit margin, and you have no choice but to increase the price. We know higher prices leads to a decrease in demand. Yes, you are right that the cost is being passed on to the customer, but it’s also costing you profits. Your profit margin is the same, but you are selling less products. Neither one of us supports these tariffs, I just happen to believe the effect on the consumer is overblown to a large extent. I think the bigger effect is on whoever is producing the product.

    a company selling goods is already maximizing their profit and selling it for as much as they can. There are exceptions but for the most part tariffs are cutting into their profit more then they are being passed on to the consumer. Profits instead going to the government.

    Sure. And many people could go to work or have more choices for work if they had their own transportation. Or think of the extra money they could spend into the economy or even have more children if they didn’t have a car payment. I think the wealthy should buy everyone a car. That’s just the tip of the iceberg of course. I’m sure their are many things the wealthy could pay for that would make our society better.

    The wealthy to pay for America’s child care. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/warren-set-to-release-70b-per-year-plan-for-universal-child-care-will-tap-wealth-tax

    Media behaving badly

    I want saying the media should praise him or be buddies. My point was that if they want to at least appear objective, they shouldn’t Tweet themselves offering fashion advice and praise to a candidate.
  7. I agree with everything here, including the “corporate welfare”. Usually though, if your city doesn’t provide it, someone else will. And so the game goes. You have weigh the benefits vs cons. It seems NY didn’t do that so well in this instance. I love Amazon for the same reasons. Last Sunday I ordered a textbook at 9pm on Sunday night and had it the next afternoon.

    Media behaving badly

    Oh my, I decided to read your replies today and this is what I find? You know you’re on my ignore list, and you stated something like that you don’t care and you’re glad. Then, what exactly is the purpose of this post? Im not reading you, except periodically like today, so I’m not seeing most of whatever this is supposed to be. But everyone else has to. I think out of respect to them, you should explain the reasoning behind posts like this. “An Internet troll is someone who comes into a discussion and posts comments designed to upset or disrupt the conversation.” https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/your-online-secrets/201409/internet-trolls-are-narcissists-psychopaths-and-sadists

    Media behaving badly

    When you see the video and the Tweets, it’s hard to believe these reporters are going to cover Harris in a nonbiased manner. When they cover Trump playing golf, do they offer him tips and then tweet congratulations to him on his game?

    Just an ordinary girls shopping trip. https://www.mediaite.com/politics/campaign-reporters-criticized-for-going-shopping-with-kamala-harris-to-put-out-glowing-tweets/
  11. Good question. AOC’s response was priceless. She seemed to think that since Amazon wasn’t coming and wouldn’t get a $3 billion tax break (still would be paying $27 billion in taxes btw) that they now could spend that $3 billion on other things.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I know I would consider someone else. Although not a Republican, I mentioned Howard Schultz would be someone to at least take a look at. That was met by vitriol by a couple of people here. A very small sample size, but makes me wonder if any moderate sort of candidate has a chance.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    To you, there is reason to believe it. However, there wasn’t then, and everything since, there is still no evidence of any crimes being committed. What should be alarming to all of us is that the top law enforcement of our country is getting so involved in politics.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Tell me again how Trump is wrong to not trust and to criticize the FBI and DOJ. https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/02/14/politics/andrew-mccabe-obstruction-of-justice/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F Trumo is right, again.
  15. Why a no on a roll call vote?
