kanye is the one who can unite us all



I wouldn't doubt Kenye being able to unite some of the millennials and I can't disagree with his caution of a Covid-19 vaccine.

No doubt, Kenye knows about innoculations injected into children, over the years.

🤔 hmm, injected doesn't sound dramatic enough, perhaps I should write it like NYTs..... innoculations "plunged" into children... priceless👍

So, then you are arguing in favor of leaving systems of oppression in place? 

 
Because the systems of oppression that she's talking about is quite simply capitalism, the basis of American greatness, and it has been working just fine.
 


Capitalism works fine huh?

Tell that to people that lost their life savings in the 2008 crash.

Or the residents of Flint Michigan that got sick because their public drinking water is poisoned.

Or how about the Great Depression? The Dust Bowl?

Or how about the transatlantic slave trade, which was the basis of the entire colonial US economy?

The truth is that Omar isn’t saying that we need to destroy capitalism. And if you were thinking for yourself instead of simply thinking what the right wing media machine was telling you to think then you might recognize that.

What she is actually saying is that people need protection when capitalism creates oppression. That is all. It’s the same kind of “radical” thinking that gave us New Deal programs like the FDIC and social security.

Why does it have to be one extreme or the other? There are many countries with robust capitalist economies, AND strong social net programs.

🤔 GOOD GRIEF, the more this guy runs his lips, the more I wonder if he might be entering his first year, of jr. high school???


Wellllllllp..... Biden feelin the "bern". The "Pied Sanders" cometh forth onced morth, and dumpeth upon his groupies, to blow Biden's musical pipe.

Once Upon A Time.


......... After agreeing to the sum, "The Bern" took out his instrument and started playing a ditty. His song magically lured the groupies to him: They came running and congregated around him. After he was convinced that he'd attracted all of the countries groupies, he walked toward the nearby Washington D.C. There, with the groupies following him all the way, he mysteriously disappeared (again). The entranced groupies continued blindly believing "Bern's B.S. annnnnd now dumped on(again), they all wonder WTF?




Buttt hey, "Trump Thumpers" don't give up hope, coming soon to a SCOTUS near all y'all, the ruling of income tax or no income tax.... that is the question.

And if the taxes are released (frankly I don’t care one way or another), they will be scrutinized, tore apart, questioned, and explained by talking head journalists that don’t understand their own simple taxes enough to be able to do them themselves and need to hire tax professionals, but are experts when it comes to the complex taxes of a multifaceted development business.

If they were actually interested in the truth, not fulfilling an agenda, they should be satisfied with the answers to 1) was there an audit (what years) and 2) what were the findings of said audits?

If the answer to 1) was no, then the IRS was satisfied. If the answer to 1) was yes, then question 2) comes into play.


If the answer to 2) was there were no findings, then the IRS was satisfied. If the answer to 2) was yes, then what were those findings and what did the penalty, if there was one, look like. If it were something significant, then more information is needed. If it were something minor, like Clinton writing off the new retail value of his used underwear he donated to charity, then move on.

And satisfying the IRS can be a difficult thing. My brother developed a condo complex and got audited. I got to sit in. The IRS dispute of his taxes centered on an artist drawing rendering of what the project would look like. The rendering hung in the construction trailer so that early potential buyers could “imagine” what the finished project would look like. The IRS agent (actually, PA state agent) contended that because the rendering was framed and hung, it was “art” and the company needed to pay PA sales tax on it. If it were unframed, it would be considered part of a blueprint package and that was not taxable because it was needed for construction. The value of the rendering was $1,000, so the agent deemed the company owed $60 in sales tax (which could then be written off in both federal and state income taxes). And that was the reason for the audit. Oh, and because my brother donated $100 to a local candidate that obviously wasn’t the “right” one.

But keep in mind, SCOTUS rulings set precedents and the next private citizen taxes released for public consumption may be yours.

🤔 ummmm, DarDy I'll buy that annnd further more, I could care less about Trump making his taxes public other than the fact, it piszes the Thumpers off, he doesn't have too.😁


Welp I've searched and cannot find any info other than the internet is fixated on "Trump's" tax returns.

Buttt perhaps someone on these boards can advise me.

So for setting a precedent, I trust "all" members of the SCOTUS will make public, their tax returns as well?

Any history of a justice making public their tax returns???

Of course I'm more interested in the liberal judges like Ruth, Sonia annnnnd John. jus'askin... for a friend. 😉

Reminder; Dec, 2019 Ginsburg put a temporary hold on a court ruling that would require records held by Deutsche Bank AG and Capital One Financial Corp to be handed over to Democratic-led congressional panels.

Maybe she didn't want to set a precedent... maybe?😒

No, SCOTUS did not say anything about releasing the tax returns of private citizens. You missed the entire point. I suggest you actually read the decisions.
 
These rulings were not about taxes or audits, they were about subpoena power and absolute immunity. Barr argued that under Article II and the supremacy clause, a sitting president was immune from prosecution for any and all crimes. The Vance ruling means that prosecutors like the SDNY do in fact have legal authority to subpoena a sitting president, and the Mazars ruling means that Congress has legal authority to do the same, with the caveat that they have to be somewhat specific about what they ask for.
 
The general public probably won't get to see Trump's tax returns any time soon. And Congress might not get them immediately either. But the SDNY will. And most importantly, SCOTUS says a sitting president is NOT above the law. That means that even if Trump (by some miracle) wins re-election, he CAN be prosecuted even while serving his second term, and his administration can't claim "absolute immunity" if they want to ignore subpoenas. Trump and Barr will of course come up with some other bu11**** legal argument, but that will be a battle for another day because they lost BIGLY on this one.
 
As for precedent, I can't think of a single reason what any reasonable person would think this was a bad decision. Do we want presidents who are held accountable for their actions? Or do we wants kings and dictators?
 
Whats also hilarious about this, is that both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh ruled against Barr/Trump.

Again, WHY does it have to be one extreme or the other? Like if I don’t believe that capitalism is a 100% perfect, flawless system, then I am Karl Marx?

I don’t consider myself to be a communist, socialist, or even anti-capitalist (I work at a bank for Christ sake). But I am capable of seeing flaws in the system like boom/bust cycles and a recurring pattern of exploitation of labor. It’s a serious mistake to pretend that these problems don’t exist, because we need a system that works for everybody.

 Blaming lead in Flints drinking water on capitalism, not mismanagement by all levels of government. 
 
 



What happened in Flint goes alot deeper than switching the source of their drinking water from Lake Huron to the Flint River. They switched the water source due to a much deeper and wider financial crisis that has its roots in the collapse of manufacturing. Even before the water crisis, the residents of Flint had no jobs, the city's infrastructure was crumbling, and real estate values were abysmal. The city got wrecked by the same boom/bust cycle that killed the economies of dozens of other rust belt towns (including cities like where I grew up in Pittsburgh). In Flint specifically, it was the death of auto manufacturing that precipitated the collapse of the region's economy.
 
Its a safe bet you are sympathetic to this, because its the same thing that Trump tapped into, right? But while Trump blamed Chinese labor for "stealing our jobs", the truth is that nobody stole our jobs, corporate America sold us out
 
Here's the thing tho: you can't really blame corporate America for selling us out, because that's the nature of capitalism. He11 you can't even blame Chinese labor either, because thats just the nature of capitalism too! Trump's whole protectionism schtick with the tariffs and the trade war is just as antithetical to real free market capitalism as, say, a minimum wage or regulating carbon emissions of the coal industry. 
 
Capitalist economies creates winners and losers. That's just how it works. And if we are going to continue embrace it as the driving force in our economy then we need a safety net because people fall through the cracks, and Flint is a perfect example of that.

Ya notice, MyLiar failed to mention "under whose watch" and how the left wing democrats & republicans used the EPA, OSHA, & the FAKE news to send America's jobs down the tubes.

Annnnnnd now that those same Swampcrats no longer control these agencies for destroying America..... enter stage left Dr. Falsie, the FDA, CDC, WHO, annnnnnd the FAKE news.

BUTT.... it ain't workin.

Democrats, Republicans, and Independents will come together (again) this Nov.

Trump/Pence/House/Senate2020


P.S. I hope the gun owners saw what just took place in St Louis with the folks trying to protect themselves.


If the Swampcrats win, not only will they be taking your money, butt your guns and then your personal property and reputation will be no more.

What is left of you after the Swampcrats are finished, anti-America journalist are poised and waiting, to bottom feed, on you and your family.

Trump Derangement Syndrome. Impossible to understand for the Right; totally commonplace on the Left; as easy as gettin' dressed in the morning. Division in the US so intent that an analogy would be the trench warfare of WWI. Step out into the middle and you're a dead man.
Goya Foods. 3rd generation Latino owned and operated company with 4000 employees must now be boycotted because the CEO dared to say something good about the President. The leaders? The usual suspects. 'Crats Ocrazio-Cortez and the former Secretary of HUD under Obama, both Latinos, will attempt to destroy the company (and jobs) via Facebook and Twitter, despite the fact that the company donated $2 million worth of food to the heavily Latino populated areas of NYC and other places while those folks are struggling due to the pandemic.  Say anything good about just one of the myriad good things that the administration has brought about, and you're toast.
I've said it before. If Trump cured cancer tomorrow, the NYT & the Washington Post headlines would be: "Trump cures cancer, Thousands of Doctors & Nurses out of work, Hospitals and Pharmacies face bankruptcy. The only way to bring the US back on track is for 3 major wins in November. That sure as hell won't stop the whining, bickering, hatred and discontent, but the Left would become redundant and relegated to the back of the room,  and then it would be the GOPs' responsibility to create unity. We can only hope.

For Liberals, whenever reality conflicts with ideology, it is reality that must change.

emitch I don't think the boycott will make a difference. What I do expect is the "peaceful demonstrators" looting and burning stores and threatening customers.

Hope I'm wrong.

I can’t help but notice that nobody ever seems capable of addressing the substance of the things I post. It’s just “trump derangemeant syndrome”, “paid to be here”, name-calling, blah blah blah...

Quite obvious "you are the nobody who is non capable of addressing the substance of the things "you" post.

"You" serve no purpose on any of these forums other than someone for us to toy with. A/K/A; "Boy Toy".

Amazing that you somehow managed to tie the Flint water thing into a Trump rant and an attack on capitalism.



So please explain to me how and where I’m wrong. Where is the flaw in my argument? Where is the fault in my reasoning?

The local government failed the people they were paid to serve. Businesses  come and go, and are sometimes purposely destroyed. The local government there knew the hand they were playing, and chose to change the source of their drinking water. They screwed up. When the auto industry left Flint, the residents probably got cleaner air and water. Just not from their taps.

Nancy's comment on throwin' the Columbus statue in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, (her childhood hometown, where her father and a brother were the mayors). "People do what people do".
 
Oh! Okay! Peaceful protesters rob & pillage, loot and then burn down other people's possessions and businesses, but what the hell. "People do what people do".
 
Isn't that special? Hard to believe that came from a politician, let alone secondary Speaker of the House.
