    Balanced budgets are stupid. Average Americans don't even do it. If times are good, you put money away for when times are bad. So instead of Bush giving away the budget surpluses at the end of Clintons term with tax cut and unfunded wars, he should have paid down the debt. So when the next eventual Recession hit, there was room to borrow without further blowing up the national debt.
  • Reply to: Koch-Tied Firm Conducts Mass Layoffs After Trump “Job Creating” Tax Cut Bill   1 year 2 months ago
    Your comment eluding to companies buying each other and the result is layoffs, tying that to tax breaks is fake news, according to you. The fact is, these companies haven't paid the 35% statutory rate since at least 2011, most likely before that, the assertion that they do pay 35% is a lie, propagated by the GOP. As companies move to labor friendly countries less and less good paying jobs will be here in the US, the government will bring in less and less revenue, pushing the deficit well beyond 1.5 trillion. The SEC needs to end corporate buyback of stock, that up until 1982 was illegal (the GOP changed that), for a number of reasons. Not the least of which, is that senior management can time the repurchase to coincide with their stock options maturing, and personally benefit. The pay structure for CEOs isn't based on the long term performance of the company, rather how well the stock performs. The only "fake news" is the idea that corporation's will really reinvest in the US

    The goal of union opposition is part of the overall philosophy of neoconservatism: Employers and corporate executives are part of the re-established nobility. Workers need to be subservient to their employer masters and have no rights at all, other than to quit and find work elsewhere. Sir Edmund Burke spoke of a "natural aristocracy" in a utopia pf completely unregulated capitalism.

I have seven years of experience working with high school and university students. I worked with disability, and ISS students. I went through all my interview process with all ICE agents, they were all nice agents. I met all the requirements for the position. When I went on my training at the facility, there were two trainers there one was very nice, confident of herself, excellent trainer, she showed me everything that I need to know about the job. Unfortunately, the second one is racist and anti-immigrants. As soon as she realized that I am a naturalized citizen, she treated as if I was of of the detainees. She lied against me. Mrs. Smith hated me to death.
