If he is that, what does that make you?
Someone who recognized Trump's self-dealing and greed long before he became a Republican:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opin...7fccde-e099-11e9-be96-6adb81821e90_story.html

"'My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy,' he said at a January 2016 rally. 'I’ve grabbed all the money I could get. I’m so greedy. But now I want to be greedy for the United States. I want to grab all that money. I’m going to be greedy for the United States.'"

How has that worked out?

it was working pretty well, until the pandemic.


you have heard of the pandemic, right?


i was especially heartened by the rise in lower end wages. very exciting. i hope when the pandemic ends, those trends resume.


do you want to see rising wages for poorer people, or do you worry that will delay The Revolution?


hey, did you ever answer mac1958's question about you being a commie?

It was a bubble prior to the pandemic which Trump mishandled in such a way that 4% of humanity living in the richest country in history have 25% of the cases and deaths.

Trump actually told the truth in 2016 when he called out Obama's bubble economy, and then Don the Con doubled down with tax cuts for billionaires and low interest rates, driving Obama's bubble into the stratosphere.

wow. you are so confident in your claim of trump's economy being a bubble, that you immediately, not even waiting for the next sentence, you immediately try to change the subject.


the way you ran away from my point, desperate to change the subject?


proves that you know i am right and you are terrified that people will judge trump based on his actual record.


the economy was doing pretty well.


i don't recall what point that was a part of. cause you constantly jump all over the place and constantly cut away the vast majority of any post you respond to.


george, what is wrong with you, that you want to support a political ideology, that you know if implemented, would commit genocide on your fellow citizens, and then oppress them terrible for generations?

How did those rising wages compare to rising levels of inflation?

an odd question. it is not like inflation stopped over the last 50 years of wage stagnation.


zero wages increases, compares very poorly to any inflation. an actual increase, is better.


do you understand that?


rhetorical question. i know you will cut all this and then try to change the subject. because you are a cowardly dishonest marxist.

Looks like he took a page out of good old Reagan’s book how to betray the middle class.and I thought he would be nothing like fellow Republican traiter Reagan thinking he was a Rino,I could not have been more wrong,it’s comedy gold there are sheep in America who seriously think Reagan was a rino any different than warmonger murderer bush lol comedy gold.the reality is they were two peas in a pod and were the perfect destructive traitorous combo.lol

dude. you've silly word games where you pretend that "capitialism" is pretty much everything that is not pure communism or pure tribal communal living
I'm using capitalism to refer to the last 500 years of human history:

Over that time period, hundreds of millions of innocent human beings have been murdered, maimed, and displaced in pursuit of private profit.

Capitalism has murdered no one, dumbass. Capitalism has saved countless lives and brought billions of people out of poverty. In the last 20 years it has raised 650 million people in China from poverty.
When you base a market on ability to pay as opposed to human need, the profit motive ensures millions will suffer and die prematurely, as Trump has proven again over the last five months:

How Capitalism Kills During a Pandemic

"From failing to develop a vaccine, to evicting the jobless and cutting off their health care, to needlessly subjecting workers and the public to infection: capitalism will be responsible for millions of coronavirus-related deaths."

Are you capable of calculating how many more Chinese would have been pulled from poverty without any parasitic billionaires?

Hurun Report - Details
Zero would have been pulled from poverty, you brain damaged twit. Leftwing morons just don't understand that the poor can earn a decent living only if those billionaires are allowed to make their profits. If you kill all the billionaires, you kill the goose that lays the golden egg. The same thing happens if you take their billions.

What innocent people has capitalism killed?
Anyone who died from a lack of ability to pay for prescription drugs or for-profit health insurance,
Capitalism doesn't exist without the profit motive; anyone who can't pay dies in many cases
.

How Capitalism Kills During a Pandemic

"This way of organizing the production and distribution of goods has its virtues, as Karl Marx himself emphasized.

"Capitalism can inspire incredible innovation. But the same feature of the system that breeds innovation — the imperative that capitalists maximize profits — also gives rise to capitalism’s most destructive tendencies.

It means that capitalists prioritize profits over the welfare of their workers and of humanity as a whole.

"Owners will make their employees work in uncomfortable and dangerous conditions and refuse to pay them a living wage.

"They will pollute the environment with deadly toxins and planet-destroying greenhouse gases before spending money on safe production processes.

"And they will oppose life-saving social policies like Medicare for All because they increase their taxes and strengthen employees’ power to bargain for better wages. Which brings us back to coronavirus."

The USSR was one of the perpetrators in WW II, moron. It doesn't matter what Germany did during the war. Russia did just as bad or even worse.
Russia was a victim of capitalism in WWII. Wall Street helped fund Hitler's rise to power as a buffer against socialism in Russia, and continued to profit from mass murder long after the US declared war:

CHAPTER ELEVEN: Wall Street-Nazi Collaboration in World War II

"Behind the battle fronts in World War II, through intermediaries in Switzerland and North Africa, the New York financial elite collaborated with the Nazi regime,

"Captured files after the war yielded a mass of evidence demonstrating that for some elements of Big Business, the period 1941-5 was 'business as usual....'"

"Similarly, the Rockefeller Chase Bank was accused of collaborating with the Nazis in World War II France, while Nelson Rockefeller had a soft job in Washington D.C.:

"Substantially the same pattern of behavior was pursued by the Paris office of the Chase Bank during German occupation,
"An examination of the correspondence between Chase, New York, and Chase, France, from the date of the fall of France to May, 1942 discloses that: (1) the manager of the Paris office appeased and collaborated with the Germans to place the Chase banks in a 'privileged position;'

"(2) the Germans held the Chase Bank in a very special esteem — owing to the international activities of our (Chase) head office and the pleasant relations which the Paris branch has been maintaining with many of their (German) banks and their (German) local organizations and higher officers;"
Globalists backed Hitler. Hitler wised up to their goals. But to late. He even tried to get peace with Britain. We are all pawns in this. The German people were pawns from 1914 to after WW 2. East Germans until around the end of the 1980's. The consolidation of power around the world into large national confederations ruled loosely by a central world government is the goal of the globalists. The United States, Canada and Mexico is one of those confederations. And we are on our way there. Two languages or more becoming standarized. Inter nation deals on trade that penalizes our nation to uplift Mexico. A move to nationalize our police force in any way in which this current riot situation may be an avenue or attempt. As to merge with Canada's and Mexico's and cross state lines with impunity.

The part you're ignoring is that the prescription drug wouldn't exist without capitalism. When you say capitalism "kills" someone, what you really mean is that capitalism didn't save them. Yes, capitalism can't save everyone, but socialism actively kills people, and anyone who supports it is an evil scumbag.

I just decided I won't be watching any football this season, or perhaps ever.


As part of the NFL's ongoing commitment to social justice programs, the messages "It Takes All of Us" and "End Racism" will be stenciled on all end zone borders for home openers, the league office informed clubs in a memo Monday obtained by ESPN.
The two messages of inclusion, which will be stenciled on opposite end zones during kickoff week, are key elements of the league's broader, multifaceted rollout intended to highlight its efforts to support diversity and inclusion while the new season begins.
The end zone messages demonstrate "how football and the NFL brings people together to work as one and use our example and our actions to help conquer racism," the memo reads. The memo also confirms that players will have the option to wear helmet decals honoring victims of systemic racism.
"Each player will have the option to honor an individual by displaying that person's name via a decal on the back of their helmet," the memo reads. "Players will be offered a list of names and short biographical information to help guide their decision-making, however, they can also select a victim of systemic racism who is not represented on this list." If coaches desire, they can honor victims of systemic racism by wearing patches on their hats.
Additionally, the league will recognize essential workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can stick to soccer, it's simpler for you to understand. And there's BEER!
