    A third party? Duverger's law makes it very difficult for one to get started. It takes the disintegration of an existing one to make room for a new one. First the Federalists, then the Whigs. Of the...
  2. If our lifespan was 20,000 years instead of 100,...

    If our lifespan was 20,000 years instead of 100, you would actually have valid concern. Since there is no viable medical technology to extend our lifespan we are for the moment safe from having more...

    Back in 2008 during times of economic turmoil, car and trucks which used to be manufactured in Fenton, Missouri, USA were relocated to plants in Canada and Mexico. And the Nafta agreement allowed...

    The more complicated the task is the more expensive the automation is to do it. The current state of the art in automation is not very versatile. It costs a lot of money to "retrain" a robot. You...
  5. The next world war(WW3) will be waged without firing a shot

    I found the last part of this video fascinating, in particular from 50:12 to the end. Basically he is saying that the 2nd amendment (as written by Alexander Hamilton) will no longer be relevant in a...

    I consider the middle class the majority of the population that works for a living. If you live off passive income or the government you are probably not in that category.

    Starting with Clinton...

    Your objection should be that someone who is even poorer than you is being exploited by corporate farming. That the current laws are being broken and that those who know better are just looking the...

    Why is it dishonest to include property tax in with a rent payment? The tax is very significant to the landlord and as such is immediately passed on to the consumer the same way gas taxes and other...

    The trick is not to destroy incentive but to change where the rich park their wealth.

    Currently all the rich do now is buy back stock for personal gain. Whats needed are tax breaks to startup...

    It really is a shame.

    If the Democrats want to win the next big election, I'm thinking they would do well to go after this in a big way. They obviously won't because they are nearly now servants...
  11. I havent personally had any issues with identity...

    We haven't managed to meaningfully address identity theft. This is simply a form of identity theft. Until we come up with a good way of stopping identity theft we should not be trying hard to...

    I know I would. I know I would also take a million dollars if you want to give that to me too. But that's got nothing to do with the discussion of whether the price point of a CEO salary is...
  14. Undocumented Immigrants are paying into social security?

    According to this article : https://www.fool.com/retirement/2019/02/07/undocumented-immigrants-and-social-security-separa.aspx

    Apparently they are either paying tax on either someone else's social...

    In most cases. That being said, I do not agree the CEO has to always do any work just for the company to succeed, especially if the company is already a huge success. A CEO could take over a...

    That is almost arguable today. An ordinary employee can be fired easily but it takes an extraordinary effort to get rid of most CEO's. Most CEO's are very well insulated by sympathetic board...

    All the more argument all the insane CEO salaries need to be reduced to sane levels found in other countries. That way real reward would be able to be delievered for real performance. How do you...

    Because there are a lot of examples of CEO's (in other countries) who are successfully making money who do not make the huge sums. They are sufficiently motivated with these far less sums and in...

    There is just as much corporate corruption as in our government. Despite many shareholder proposals to rein in CEO pay it never happens.

    It actually kind of reminds me of how everyone in the...

    Thank heavens that we have Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Steve Bezos who so admirably demonstrate that white men are doing just fine after all, thank you very much! I'm sure you feel very reassured...

    Errrr, no they didn't.

    In almost ANY arena, we are better today about caring for the "weakest" individuals than ever before.

    Not quite. He says he didn't "feel sexually harassed" but he has not disavowed that the kiss was unexpected and unwanted and unconsented. Even if he had, the event itself was caught on multiple high...

    But that right there is the rub. An investment is not savings. You can not eat a rental house. You can not even trade a rental house to pay your taxes. The US has no savings now, and yes the fed...
