Ts and ps
People can make legit complaints about Obama you don't need to freak out. We're still in Afghanistan (plus a bunch of other places because of the military industrial complex), operating Guantanamo, Wall St is having a great time (after taxpayer bailouts), and top W Bush guys haven't been executed for war crimes. You can seperate this from the fact that he'd probably be a great guy to meet up with for a few beers. I know it's cooler/edgier to take legit complaints and turn them into absolutes but do your thing.
What authority is the federal government claiming to do this?
I apologize to everyone about yesterday. That’s fucking horrible.
Hello. Want to nerd out for a second about the zero / negative interest rate question a few pages back.
Bringing the fed funds rate down to zero is something you would see in a recession or in an economy which is experiencing some serious weakness. Low rates = more borrowing power which in theory allows for easier access to credit individuals and corporations, thus more consumption and economic activity.
What captain dipshit doesn’t understand is that we having been allowing access to cheap credit since 08/09 and cheap credit builds big bubbles. There is a cost / going to be a cost to this unprecedented era of easy money since the financial crisis. Our government had to do what they did in 08/09 to get the economy going again (took a very long time, relatively for cheap credit to do its job).
Right now we don’t need to do it. If we do it’s going to throw gas on the flame of the easy money bubble that was created after the crisis. Furthermore, we are going to have a recession again. The fed should actually be raising rates right now to have the ammunition needed to get us out of the recession faster by once again making credit easier for people to obtain.
If we go into a recession with rates at or near zero there is no play book of how to get out of it.
Thank you for playing along.
I have also provided a link to a really good video which explains all of this in a really easy way to understand. Please share the video with friends and family.
next time don’t freak and scream hyperbole because you should know everything this administration does will be as bad as you can imagine
I’d like to think I’m one of the more rational ones here but still your words are hurtful
we said concentration camps and Daniel ocean did his best Daniel ocean and said it was hyperbole and we said no and he said yes and we said no and now he says no and I say see I told you
I still think saying they are rounding homeless up to put them in gas chambers is hyperbole.
Does the the fact companies are not reinvesting profits into people and projects play into this in any way?
I’m dumb but my theory is that so much of our economy is now made up of services and financials institutions that don’t do anything as opposed to manufacturing and actual creation of goods that access to capital regardless of rate is irrelevant.
Companies hoarding cash because they have no incentive to invest in actual things not funny money and derivatives seems to be more important than at this point than the cost to borrow.
You can expect to see more of this. Just look at California and auto emissions. Republicans are in for a surprise if they think they can enforce their will on urban population centers just because they packed the courts, control the senate with only 35% of the population, and retain the whitehouse despite losing the popular vote by several million votes.
From a while ago, but I missed it, so I'm posting it now.
I hope so.
These are your people, JEB
@nytimes and @cnn
Toe the line
Not all concentration camps are death camps. In fact, only a few were. There were several hundred work camps under the Reich that qualify as concentration camps.
Sounds like a plan. Can we put some chemicals in our so called milkshakes too? Just to let Fox finally report something true.
Thanks for unloading on us with your shitty twitter feed sflnole
Yeah but hipster joe literally called it a “final solution” so yeah
The “final solution” wasn’t the initial solution. Not saying this will become that, but I’m sure as shit not giving the administration any benefit of the doubt. But whatever, if the two of you want to continue pissing on each other that’s your prerogative.
I know how we get out of it-- we cave under the rising force of China's hegemony that Trump is helping create
No. It’s like being against coal mining (and for renewable energies), it upsets a few hundred to a few thousand people’s jobs but other than that it’s a net positive for the economy and the environment.
Huh? Yesterday an article came out that I hadn’t read. I said that while getting the homeless of the streets is a good thing how did this administration fuck that up.
Hipster joe called it a final solution. I called that hyperbole and could someone just give me an honest answer. He didn’t compare it to a concentration camp. He literally call it the “final solution”.
Today you said not all concentration camps were death camps to which I replied that if someone is calling something a final solution they are obviously referring to death camps and not simply concentration camps.
So all I did was say that saying they are “rounding up the homeless to gas them” is nothing more than hyperbole.
I know. But seriously who the fuck puts toppings on ice cream that already has stuff mixed in it? It's Blue Bell. You're not risking listeria just to add sprinkles on top.
As an aside, geriatrics like Feinstein should not even be in this important position. It has no bearing on their future as they will be dead in 5-10 years.
It’s against the law to deploy the military domestically... if our rights(and the constitution as a whole) have been bushed, the last thing I want to be is disarmed, regardless of the odds.
Actually defending my right to own an AK...
Theft doesn’t cease being theft if what’s stolen is used to help the individual it was taken from.
The correct answer, is “so what”.
My intestines steal my poop from body pretty much every day.
Defecation is theft.
Dead7, you pitiful fucking moron, do you have any concept how fucking dumb you sound with this TaXaTiOn Is ThEfT bullshit?
I feel like the SCOTUS decision yesterday should be getting a lot more coverage
But you said you’re not against theft. Total nonsense.
I remember thinking faux libertarian ideas sounded good when I was 19 in some 100 level class.
Then my I realized how catastrophically stupid those ideas are
It seems more like the two people that dislike PSA simply don’t like that centrist brand of politics. Saying they just “hate it because they hate everything” implies they have no actual beliefs and there isn’t any wrong with PSA. I personally use to listen to PSA and quickly realized my beliefs didn’t line up with their own.
Its pretty well documented about how much I personally hate centrists and those guys are a good example of the issues that many of us on the left had with the Obama administration as a whole.
they’ve never called Warren a centrist. Mind you the Chapo guys would absolutely vote for Warren, but they’re still further left than her so of course they’re going to be critical of some of her politics.
