The US exploits the poorest workers of the world who toil in highly toxic environments making textiles and disposable products for beneath slavery wages.

Why do they work for us in toxic environments for beneath slavery wages?
I told you, it's because Imperialist corporations prop up their governments, the US Gov't also supplies these governments with weapons and just enough money to feed an army of thugs to thwart a rebellion.

Almost everyone's aware of Alaska's Permanent Fund:

"...The program began in 1976 after the discovery of oil on Alaska’s North Slope.

"The then-governor, a renegade Republican named Jay Hammond, concluded that this windfall was too good to just give to the oil companies.

"So he devised the program to share the revenue with Alaska residents...."

"OK, here’s the idea for President-elect Biden:

"Bring 20 of the Trumpiest-looking Alaskans to a press conference.

"Unveil a plan whereby every man, woman, and child gets a $1,000 check every month from the government.

"Finance it with taxes on large wealth, fossil fuels, financial transactions, and intellectual property resulting from taxpayer-funded public research.

"Invite the Alaskans to describe the joy of getting their checks: no middleman, no means tests, no government forms to fill out—just free money as everyone’s share of the American commons.

"Dare Mitch McConnell to oppose it."

A Big, Simple, Winning Issue for Biden

The "American commons" are the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of society. In a time when the privileged few expand their vast fortunes despite a global pandemic and recession, it seems fitting to socialize the profits and privatize the losses.

Does anyone believe "Delaware Joe" will turn on his corporate benefactors?
There have already been proposals along these lines from Democrats like Kamala Harris.

Personally I think they are a great idea. This is America, the richest, best country in the world. We should have no one living in poverty here.
“Poverty” here in this country would be considered opulence innody of the rest of the world. This is a colossal mistake by some very ignorant people. All that will happen is an increase in the cost of living, putting people right back in “poverty” despite the free money.
Means nothing, Labor has to be able to afford our first world economy.
That’s funny because it’s been working so far as is. Where else do you see “poor” people with cell phones and big screen TVs?

Because we have the expense of our social, war on poverty? Free market capitalists used to simply outlaw being poor not actually solve simple poverty.

328 million Americans * $1,000/month = $328 billion/month.
$328 billion/month * 12 months = $3.9 trillion/year.

Fun times indeed. Where is the almost $4 trillion going to come from, Bill Gates?

That's McConnell's response that kills the whole thing.
No one can make it on $1000 a month. The minimum should be $2000, and it would require price controls.

That would be $8T a year.

They print all the money they need already, at this point we just need electrons to fill the bank accounts. That's all "money" is at this point anyway. "Digits", it's not based on anything real or tangible. So just program the treasury computers to fill every American's account with $500 a week and let people who can work earn a little bit more.

It's not that hard.
It's also not that hard to see the effects of doing that. Hyper-inflation is inevitable, because all you're doing is progressively making the dollar worth less and less.

Answer this question honestly. Why don't we just set the minimum wage at $100/hr and be done with poverty altogether? If you do, you might begin to realize why simply creating more money doesn't translate into more wealth.
How did QE work?
It provided a temporary boost to the economy designed to head off catastrophic collapse. It cannot continue for very long without causing the problem I described. Now, since you chimed in you can also answer the question. Why don't we just set the minimum wage at $100/hr and be done with poverty altogether?
Right wingers have a problem with it because the Poor may benefit.
Uh, no. That is false on its face, so you need to stop lying about people. QE cannot continue forever because in the long run it devalues the currency to nothing.

what is ".....EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS...." ?????
A person may not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law or denied equal protection of the laws
oh---you mean "equal protection under the law"-----yes----VERY IMPORTANT------have you ever been to court on a life, liberty, or property question. I have.
THEIR AIN'T NONE (the 'equal' thing) Court decisions regarding "life, liberty, property" are
POLITICAL in my town-----increasingly.
Daniel believes that he's not getting equal protection under the law because Unemployment Compensation doesn't cover people who simply refuse to work a job. He thinks the word "Unemployment" means unemployed for any reason at all. And you will never convince him otherwise.

Basically, he insists UC is really a welfare program that covers everyone and can't figure out why no checks ever show up in the mail.
Employment is at the will of either party. Unequal protection of the laws only creates more poverty for right wingers to complain about when having to pay for general welfare spending on the Poor. And, UC is not a welfare program but a correction for capitalism's natural rate of unemployment. An automatic stabilizer for our economy.
You claim UC has to cover those who refuse to work a job because of "unequal protection under the law". That's bogus, and until you admit that, you're going no further.

Also, you repeating endlessly that "Employment is at the will of either party" is totally meaningless, totally. Literally, it means nothing in this context, so you need to stop saying it.
You are welcome to your currently unsubstantiated opinion.
My opinion is substantiated by the language of the bills authorizing UC and the court cases surrounding it. You, OTOH, have nothing more than your poor understanding of some things in the Constitution that you twist bizarrely in an attempt to apply them where they don't.
lol. You need the "gospel Truth" not right wing fantasy. All you have is right wing fantasy not any understanding of the law.
So quote the court case the substantiates your opinion. Quote the text of the law that applies UC to people who refuse to work an available job.

There is no "Free Crap" card coming. You area all getting Draft Cards so you can die for The Glory of The New World Order.

Biden and his handlers have already promised WWIII so instead of you left-tards getting a "Free Crap" card, you are getting a Draft Card. He already did Wink and Nod Iran 2.0, and they are waiting the green light to start up WWIII in the ME. All the armies involved have beach heads in Syria.

Hitler and The Democratic Nazi Party promised Free Shit, and what Germany Got was Death.

And Death not Life, is what Biden brings America and the rest of the world.

It is a crime against humanity that the US exists on the backs of the world's poor.
How do we do that? Be specific.
The US exploits the poorest workers of the world who toil in highly toxic environments making textiles and disposable products for beneath slavery wages. Imperialist corporations prop up corrupt "democracies" and despotic regimes that allow them to rape the planet of resources.
And without those US jobs, those poorest workers of the world would watch their children starve. You know that, but want to feel good about yourself. How many products have you bought that were made in those countries by those workers?

I'm not like a right winger that pretends to give a shit about human life. You'd shoot a man for stealing your TV, so you don't care about human life. The fact is the world is horrendously over populated, and when these imperialist corporations come to these countries and exploit the people just enough so they can continue to fuck more, it exacerbates the problem. Rather that just a few hundred starving, you end up with thousands starving. It's a domino effect.

I'm not like a right winger that pretends to give a shit about human life. You'd shoot a man for stealing your TV, so you don't care about human life. The fact is the world is horrendously over populated, and when these imperialist corporations come to these countries and exploit the people just enough so they can continue to fuck more, it exacerbates the problem. Rather that just a few hundred starving, you end up with thousands starving. It's a domino effect.
don’t pretend you care. The politicians you support are totally in bed withChina, the biggest offender of the crap you claim to hate.

Almost everyone's aware of Alaska's Permanent Fund:

"...The program began in 1976 after the discovery of oil on Alaska’s North Slope.

"The then-governor, a renegade Republican named Jay Hammond, concluded that this windfall was too good to just give to the oil companies.

"So he devised the program to share the revenue with Alaska residents...."

"OK, here’s the idea for President-elect Biden:

"Bring 20 of the Trumpiest-looking Alaskans to a press conference.

"Unveil a plan whereby every man, woman, and child gets a $1,000 check every month from the government.

"Finance it with taxes on large wealth, fossil fuels, financial transactions, and intellectual property resulting from taxpayer-funded public research.

"Invite the Alaskans to describe the joy of getting their checks: no middleman, no means tests, no government forms to fill out—just free money as everyone’s share of the American commons.

"Dare Mitch McConnell to oppose it."

A Big, Simple, Winning Issue for Biden

The "American commons" are the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of society. In a time when the privileged few expand their vast fortunes despite a global pandemic and recession, it seems fitting to socialize the profits and privatize the losses.

Does anyone believe "Delaware Joe" will turn on his corporate benefactors?
There have already been proposals along these lines from Democrats like Kamala Harris.

Personally I think they are a great idea. This is America, the richest, best country in the world. We should have no one living in poverty here.
“Poverty” here in this country would be considered opulence innody of the rest of the world. This is a colossal mistake by some very ignorant people. All that will happen is an increase in the cost of living, putting people right back in “poverty” despite the free money.
Means nothing, Labor has to be able to afford our first world economy.
That’s funny because it’s been working so far as is. Where else do you see “poor” people with cell phones and big screen TVs?
Because we have the expense of our social, war on poverty? Free market capitalists used to simply outlaw being poor not actually solve simple poverty.
WTF? Are you off your meds? Are you replying to the right thread?
lol. In right wing fantasy, you can still be Right even by simply appealing to ignorance. Isn't right wing fantasy wonderful.
It’s not a fantasy that you posted gibberish in response to my post. That’s right there for all to see.
Not my fault you only have right wing fantasy not any understanding of simple economics and You prove it every time you have nothing but right wing fantasy instead of any valid arguments for rebuttal.
hey moron, I asked a straight up question and you answered it withunrelated gibberish. That’s not a fantasy, it’s right there in black and white.

Let's see if we can spot the fallacies. You say, "You'd shoot a man for stealing your TV". Fallacy number one.
You say, "you don't care about human life". Fallacy number two.
You say, "I'm not like a right winger that pretends to give a shit about human life". Not a fallacy, just exposes you as a nasty person. Ever notice that none of the people who complain about the world being over populated ever remove themselves to make the problem easier to handle?
