    In the old days products were simple and simply made. Without a HS education you could earn a living for your family because many jobs were not intellectually demanding.

    Today, jobs are far more complicated. You can't figure out how to do most of them with just a little on the job training or experience. You often need a lot of education, something that heretofore has not been required of most human beings on earth. This is especially true in America where our more advanced economy can't compete with low skilled, low waged China.

    Accordingly there are now many many skill levels in our economy each of which comes with a higher salary as the skill required increases. Competition for these workers has led to very different compensation levels and more and more inequality.

    The low or no skilled workers have been hit the hardest thanks to competition from China and because they have not been able to rapidly adapt to the changed technological world.


    The highest skilled workers have been helped the most since their skills or products are now easily sold the world over thanks to globalization.


    There are however two significant solutions:

    1) make liberals unions illegal since they have destroyed our public education system

    2) make liberal economic policies illegal since they have exacerbated the shift of jobs to China 1000%

    If some day in the future most of the manual works are done by robots, then it's probably true that everyone has to be a skilled worker. But right now there're still a lot of things need to be done by human eyes and hands, and that means some people has to do them, no matter how highly educated everyone is.

    I agree that skilled workers are the direct contributors to the increase in productivity, but could they have done it without others who helped with those trivial yet necessary chores?

    One can certainly tell you’re a conservative – both with regard to your ignorance of the law and propensity for authoritarianism.

    Item 1 is un-Constitutional, not that it would matter to a conservative, as it is a violation of the First Amendment right of free association.

    Item 2 is likely a First Amendment violation as well concerning the right to free expression, in addition to being idiotic. As economic policies are codified by Congress, you’re proposing Congress pass a law making it illegal to debate and pass legislation containing ‘liberal’ economic policies, ignoring the fact there is no consensus as to what constitutes ‘liberal’ economic policies, not to mention the fact there is no evidence ‘liberal’ economic policies are responsible for any of the ills you cite.

    You hate liberals, understood.

    But consider the fact this blind hatred only makes you look foolish.

    :wtf:

    Would you be so kind as to list the 'liberal economic policies' you are referring to so that we can be on the look out for them?

    And God bless the United States of America, Baseball and Apple Pie.

    dear, free association and unions are very very different things. That is why they passed the Wagner Act and many others!! Why not wait till college before you try to debate here?

    here are 20 they have badly damaged our economy:



    1) Make unions illegal ( 10 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    2) make minimum wage illegal ( 5 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    3) end business taxation; especially tax incentives to off-shore jobs ( 5 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    4) make inflation illegal ( 2 million new jobs) Democrats oppose


    5) make Federal debt illegal( 2 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    6) send illegal workers home(8 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    7) Pass Balanced Budget Amendment to Constitution( 3 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    8) cut pay of government workers in half( 4 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    9) Make health insurance competition legal( 6 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    10) end needless business regulations ( 2 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    11) restrict Federal spending to 15% of GNP( 2 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    12) support unlimited free trade( 2 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    13) reduced unemployment compensation, welfare, food stamps, medicaid.( 2 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    14) privatize education, social security ( 4 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    15) end payroll taxes ( 1 million new jobs) Democrats oppose

    Since Democrats always oppose wisdom and common sense the only serious option is to make them illegal as the Constitution intended.

    Making up numbers again? You're such a dumb shit. If you're the product of US public education, then there really is a problem.

    no but so what? We are all cogs in the machine but some are far more important than others. You don't want the bottom guys doing what the top guys are doing and you don't want to pay them the same either.
