    1. ​@J You’re proof ignorance is bliss. Take a look at the percentage of vaccinated people by party. Democrats, 86% have received at least one dose where as only 45% of Republicans have. Of the more than 18,000 people who died from Covid -19 in May only 150 were fully vaccinated. That’s less than 1%. Meaning in May more republicans than Democrats died from Covid.

    2. ​@J On live TV Mango Unchained said multiple times he hoped that churches would be full of people on Easter. A few weeks prior to that in a private and recorded phone call he said,, “You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said in a recorded phone call with Bob Woodward on Feb. 7. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your most strenuous flus.” “This is deadly stuff,” the president repeated for emphasis.
      Do you get it yet? Don the Con knew just how deadly the virus was and yet he still told his cult followers to put themselves in harms way. All for political gain. He cares more about votes than he cares about you.

    1. I doubt they’re quaking in their boots. The Dems love that corporate money, just as much as the GOP.

    2. @Disco/Secret And only Dems voted to get dark money out of politics with HR1 the For the People Act. And all GQP members voted against it.

  1. Want to see the real evils of capitalism? Walk through the packaged food aisles read the tables of contents

    1. @Angela Siegfried I would call what you are describing libertarianism. It’s not what we have. Unregulated – have you ever started a business? We live in a very regulated society.
      What system do you favor? Honest question. I don’t call names and try to be respectful.

    2. @Angela Siegfried protein and fat with less than 20 carbs, not everyone can stick that out nearly 12 years like me but it dropped 110 pounds and I’m still rocking in the free world. Plus it’s veggies and fruits and a boatload of minerals and vitamins and missing amino acids, so tally the cost again. 3 oz of liver is over 50 cups of veggies so compare cost again.. And your brain doesn’t swell from fruit sugar and doesn’t shrink 2X that of meat year after year on protein and fat in the absence of sugar and starch.
      I love little critters, but not more than life itself, and my lipid scores sparkle, my A1C is 4.8 low end to 5.1 top.

    3. @aurora_occidentalis Interestingly, the govt’s role in ensuring capitalism stays competitive and we doesn’t default to one company store is not taught everywhere in grades 1-12. It was in NY.

    4. @Yourdeadmeat69 I weigh 92 pounds so losing weight isn’t an issue for me. In fact quite the opposite. That’s what I mean when I say every body is different. Cheers!

  2. I’m in my 40’s and I am actually doing quite well financially now but I have a 90’s punk and hardcore scene background and I have been criticising the current system and economy since I was a teenager. It’s so overdue to finally fix these countless issues of social inequality which an extremely short-sighted and exploitative economy has created. We have a moral obligation to finally, finally do it. I hope that Biden won’t change course indeed. The last few decades have been extremely frustrating for me politically. We have to get this right. Now. We can’t wait. We are already decades behind.

    1. I invested in Tesla back in 2013, I was very much a bear, My reasoning was simple: Tesla was trying to do what no American automaker has done so far: Develop and sell a mass-market electric vehicle. It was trying to do what no American company had done in nearly a century: Start up a new auto manufacturing business. To take it a step further, I bought 40 shares from Tesla miners, investing about $1,800 in total with part of the proceed from a 401(k) rollover. At the $908 per share price I sold at,that’s a realized profit of $35,000! It may not be a life changing money, but it’s an incredible return nonetheless,Now I am working with 3 asset Gold, Silver and Crypto all are good but crypto investment is the mother of them all, Crypto has followed this pattern for sometime now, it dips and gets everyone scared then after retesting an old resistance several times, we wake up one day to see it is bullish. This period is the perfect time to buy the dip and accumulate irrespective of the bulls being under pressure. Bitcoin moving up is inevitable and would see the price of bitcoin surpass it’s all time highs. The reversal was imminent because obviously, the bitcoin market needed a correction to gather the right momentum to give the bulls more steam and this just make it the perfect time to invest and accumulate as much as possible. I’d strongly advice any newbie/traders to buy the dip for traders who are still wondering whether to enter the market or old time traders who are Holders to seek help from not just any trader but an established trading expert with at least 89% trade accuracy. I underwent a series of trading losses I’d best not talk about before I was introduced to trading analyst Expert Mr Brown. My contact with him has being the hallmark of this year for me,under her careful guide and her signal service I’ve been able to recover my losses and even grow my trading portfolio massively from 1.2 btc to 4.6 btc in just 5 weeks. I will advice traders especially newbies to have an orientation of trading before they get involved in it. Expert Mr Brown makes you learn daily while you make profits with her signals.
      He can be contacted via WhatsApp +1(713) 600-7554 for inquires into profitable trading strategy…

  3. America pray that the cold hearted leaders mind – heart will change – feel for we the people’s -do their job and help all families of American.

    1. @My president is a kiddy sniffer 1 You joined 4 days ago? Oh. Must be because you’re super edgy and cool.

    2. @Loteh Esorp Calling out bots works because “@My president…” already deleted their comment. 🙂

    3. @Angela Siegfried Hahaha I just saw that! Thanks for pointing that out. I was working out and just checked my phone afterwards. These turkeys have the belittling tactics of a baby. Might as well fight fire with fire

      Edit: changed “teenager” to “baby” because teenagers often have the most cutting insults now that I think about it.

    1. They will cry about the attack on capitalism by socialist, marxist, communist, CRT-touting, leftist, liberals. Did I miss any buzz-word/dog-whistles?

  4. Fun Fact: In 2002, Republican Carly Fiorina oversaw what was then the largest technology sector merger in history, in which HP acquired rival personal computer manufacturer, Compaq. The transaction made HP the world’s largest seller of personal computers.

  5. The problem is not keeping people from working for their employer’s competitors. The problem is they cannot survive on one job, so they have to consider moonlighting for the competitors.

  6. This is a revival of FDR’s new deal on capitalism, a strong working middle class that supports the American economy.

    An America that works for everyone.

    1. Dreamers can dream, but we need to work together for the benefit of everyone for it to truly work. Are we prepared to work hard to build something our children and grandchildren truly deserve?

    2. FDR’s new deal only plunged us into debt, encourage high government budgets, and probbably put us into another recesion, while other countries during the great depression recoverd much faster. There isn’t any evidence or historical consensus that the New Deal brought us out from the depression.

    3. @Solstice of Snow And yet what the Republicans brought to the table was much, much more dumbed down and lackluster.

      Joe Biden said “Put up or shut up” and they brought a plan saying that TAXPAYERS will pay for infrastructure and so people who don’t pay taxes (like the 1% of Americans) won’t pay a nickle for the 300M+ Americans’ infrastructure. Biden said thanks but no thanks, because Republicans have made it clear: They don’t care if the 99% starves to death, all they care about is their money and themselves. And the tax cuts? Nobody BUT the 1% will see their taxes be lowered at all (and if anything, the Republicans really just raise the 99%’s taxes) so yeah.

      So we’ll say it again, if you have anything better, put up or shut up, present it to us and let’s see what the people say. Enough reverse-Robin hooding, enough lies and downplaying, let’s see what you have to present if you have anything at all.

  7. Once you realize that it’s quite possible for an expert to talk over the head of the anchor, and for that anchor to need to steer things based on that (that you can’t direct a discussion where you’re partly out of your depth) you see it all the time.

  8. I worked for a major internet service provider that would buy up competing companies and essentially lay off the employees and discontinue the competing service. It doesn’t get more monopolistic than that.

  9. I love how Trump said he would do this (with his non-existent healthcare plan) Yet Biden was the one who did the prescriptions

  10. Odd that he wants us to think he’s promoting capitalism when his policies and those of the Democrat parrty are pushing us toward Socialism – WHICH HAS FAILED EVERYWHERE IT’S BEEN TRIED! Capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty than any other system in the history of the world!

  11. I hope more Americans vote democratic in the next elections
    The Democrats are helping Americans
