Milton on a Hilton
my was funnier smh
Sounds like a movie where Paris Hilton has sex with pencils
Tbh we should probably just liquidate everything.
GDP per capita in the US is like 54,000 ....
did they just divide the total US wealth by number of households and use it to get to annual income?
Not defending lsc in the slightest but they are talking about equal wealth not income
Edit: oh shit it says annual income nevermind nevermind
AMA announcement: Jason Brennan | Friday 22nd of September, 2 pm to 4 pm Eastern
We're happy to announce an upcoming AMA with Prof. Jason Brennan.
He earned his Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Arizona, and is Associate Professor of Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. He is the author of several books and blogs at bleedingheartlibertarians.com. His new book, Against Democracy critically examines the merits and demerits of democracy and makes a case for epistocracy, "the rule of the knowledgeable".
We'll be opening it up early on Thursday so you can get your questions in beforehand!
not so much on him im afraid
Sounds like /u/Kirkaine found his favorite AMA person
I read his book and I liked it a lot. It's very thought-provoking and it's not like he is an advocate of a dictatorial autocracy or anything like that. It's just a critical examination of the perverse incentives of our current political system.
This will reflect well on us
Nationalism belongs in the dumpster of history. Globalist policies have raised standards of living and brought billions out of poverty.
tfw the people are coming over to the light side.
But it still needs to be a 1:0 margin!
Capitalism, free-markets, free trade and immigration, multinational corporations, and anti-racism/anti-fascist policies.
Eh, maybe anti-racism isn't the right term, but globalism is certainly multi cultural.
Which in and of itself, is usually anti-racism.
Wow... Is he really drugged? I mean, Paris and DACA were 2 huge parts of his campaign
So the real lesson here is that these guys are morons who can't keep their story straight? That's going to be useful for Mueller.
Trump just goes with the policy suggested by the most recent person he's spoken with.
Bannon is no longer present to nearly always butt in and converse with Trump before most decisions.
Ergo, Trump is announcing more sane policy decisions post-Bannon exit.
Scary take away from all this: Bannon actually had a ton of power while at the White House.
Wow, I really expected better from a guy called "RightEurope"...
It boggles my mind how are libertarians feel completely justified in interfering with other people's lives and beliefs. The first casualty of liberty is always the defilement of someone else's sense of morality.
Libertarians should all be live and let live, unless people are violating the rights of others.
But what if it's my right to live in a comfortable bubble where absolutely nobody thinks or acts in a way that doesn't gratify me? Checkmate libcucks
It's okay because his version of Medicare for All covers even more than what Medicare and Medicaid covers. So I'm sure the math will work by making the program more expansive.
"... Unless we change the fundamental system". Seems like he's saying there should be a discussion to change Medicaid at its base level to be more similar to Canada. So not a complete hypocritical statement
The sanders bill will not pass. And it totally lacks a mechanism to fund itself. So on those points alone it deserves to be ridiculed.
But Sanders talking about Medicaid costs in 1987 compared to what he calls 'Medicare for all' in 2017 is kind of apples and oranges. This is true at minimum because Medicaid is so heavily funded by states that cannot deficit spend, and what he's proposing, like Medicare, is all federal.
All this tweet proves to me is that the kid who tweeted it doesn't know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid...
DEEP STATE ALWAYS WINS
THANK MS $HILLARY FOR THE DIRECT DEPOSIT
sing it with me now:Open 👏 trade 👏 Open 👏 borders 👏 Taco 👏 trucks 👏 on 👏 every 👏 corner
If it wasn't real, then why did Hillary Clinton initial it?
Hillary's loss was a temporary bump in the road for us, of course. But then we simply used our deep state magic to convert Donald into "Amnesty Don" and now all is right with the world again!
Economists all across the country will tell you that local restrictions on housing are driving up rents and property values, stifling the economy, and driving up poverty rates. When cost of living is factored in, California has the highest poverty rate in the country.
His opponent, endorsed by Bernie, would have continued the policy of throwing subsidies for the poor at the problem without addressing the market failure, but Wiener took an axe to the regulations that create this situation. Now any residential development that is in an urban area and complies with local zoning in cities that have failed to build their share of new housing will be permitted "by-right" and allowed to proceed by default. Not only will this drive the cost of housing down, but it will drastically increase the number of people who can live in dense, urban, sustainable transit-served areas and reduce California's per-capita carbon footprint, while slowing the spread of suburbanization.
Despite being a freshman Senator with not even a year under his belt, his major legislation, which he authored, cleared the Assembly today, and is headed for an inevit...during an O'Reilly immigration hit piece
edit: Since this is getting upvoted and might attract attention from some people in the alt-wrong, did I mention he's a (((gay jew)))?
Can we say "this is why Scott Weiner won" when Bernie bros come at us?
Not only will this drive the cost of housing down
BUT MY PROPERTY VALUE REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Bernie bros become a thing
They endorse candidates
Dems still make platform appeasements for them
I'm honestly confused.
/sub/the_donald : 'Capitalism is great because it forces people to compete and be their best.'
Also /sub/the_donald: 'WTF I have to compete and be my best!?'
Waaaa people with more marketable skill sets than me are more employable
