  9. Capitalism, and most specifically consumer capitalism, has taken the planet from healthy to the verge of ecological collapse in 300 short years. It is based on a premise any half way intelligent fourth grader could demolish: The idea that you can constantly "grow" economies on a planet with finite resources.
    You think capitalism is great because you live in the foremost exploiter of resources on the globe. America and Europe have been getting raw materials for pennies on the dollar from Africa and Latin America for over 200 years. That's why we live so well. Our standard of living has improved ( at least materially ). For Africans and others it's destroyed their traditional social and economic systems and left them impoverished.

    Humans are clever but seldom wise. We invent something and implement it, often thinking we have anticipated all of the possible ramifications. But it can't be done. So from one invention multiple environmental problems ensue. We think, "oh. . .no problem. We will create another technological fix for the problems our last technological fix created. ad nauseum.

    We are just smart enough to get ourselves in constant trouble and trash the planet for all other living things.
    Nature will solve the problems for us. We are not capable.

  14. When will the American homeless have a president? When will the media talk about the increase in Homelessness?

  15. Art Laffer looks so young for 80. Maybe a name like Laffer helps.

  18. Just listening to those puppets is subversion..that means on both sides! If they are on the fake news media channels they are puppets of the occupation. sept 11 2001 was the coup d'eta of America. American's live in a false reality designed to support the survival and agenda of the ruling globalist elite. We have faile the framers of the constitutional republic. Censorship is done by deceptive people to hide the truth.

  19. Deficits are great. Greatest ever thanks

  20. The corrupt republican senate is finished if they vote against witnesses and documents. Republicans in general should dissolve the party of greed and deceit.

  30. Step 1: tax cut.
    Step 2: cut government spent.
    Rinse and repeat.

  31. but Dems still want to "tax the billionaires"

  32. Lowering taxes on companies and people is only a good thing. Increases business growth, gives more money to companies to give raises and hire more people, gives people more money in their pockets to spend on bills and luxury items they want, still increases actual tax revenue because more people are working, less people on welfare, higher wages, companies selling more products, people buying more houses, etc.
