Most of the world could give a rats' azz about global warming. The U.S. is already doing more then it's share. Kinda like one homeless Kalifornia guy using the portapotti while everybody else 💩 on the sidewalk.

I think all the powers that be care about it. The west so we can hang ourselves. China cares because they want to make sure that they can sell us all the rope we need.

Truth.

Oddly, it took Epstein two tries. The first attempt, he seemed to scream a lot; I assume to himself. The second suicide attempt was a success because the guards were away and the cameras were off.

Sowell is correct, and the democrats do not want people to be responsible. The left's power comes from having a permanent underclass. When people are self sufficient, they do not need pandering leftists in government promising to take care of them.

The problem is not the student loans, it is the financial illiteracy of multiple generations who learned from others who were horrible with money that going into debt is "normal." Then when the bill comes due, the financially illiterate think the problem is the debt they willingly took on. Nope. The problem is your ignorance and forgiving the debt will only reward that ignorance, not fix it.

The party of the poor requires poverty. No poverty. No party of the poor.

The problem is the Republican leadership is not about prosperity for the American people. Trump and his advisors understood the bottom up nature of spreading prosperity.

One of the numbers we need to focus on is per capita GDP. They focus on GDP. GDP = per capita GDP times the population. Import 10 million illegals. GDP goes up and per capita GDP goes down. We are a larger LESS prosperous nation on average. Business gets richer and workers get poorer.

I've quoted this many times because it succinctly explains how illegal immigration makes us poor while spun as a positive by big business Republican types.

Fruits of Immigrant Labor

The subhead of this WSJ article. "A new study shows the urgent need for more farm guest workers."

It shows EXACTLY the opposite.

The study finds that farmers would have to raise wages to $26.57 per hour from an average today of $10.80 to replace undocumented workers.
Put another way. This was from 2014 and it says the flood of illegals are estimated to suppress American farm labor wages by more than $15/hr. That's crushing to American workers and yes, a big boon to American farmers.

More likely is that many of these jobs would vanish as farmers grew less here
If they were allowed child labor as well as illegal foreign labor we could produce even more goods and services in America. Not everything should be produce in America. This is one fatal flaw that drives these stupid policies by well meaning Americans.

The study also examines the effects of legalizing 11 million undocumented immigrants coupled with tougher enforcement. The impact on farmers is only slightly less destructive since undocumented immigrants once legalized would move to more attractive jobs in other industries.
And what do you think has happened to the wages of American workers in those more attractive jobs in other industries every time we legalize illegal aliens? It drives their wages and working conditions down just as dramatically as the 11 million "undocumented immigrants" do to the American farm laborers.

We do not NEED poor people in America. We don't need them to empower the Democrat party. We don't need them to maintain the corrupt business models that rely upon them.

The GOP platform should be superior K-12 education for all Americans. This means real education and not a well-funded incompetent monopoly. It should be that no American worker should have to compete with black market foreign labor. Build the wall and punish big business that hires foreigners illegally. Prosperity for all Americans within one generation should be their mantra and their focus.

That comes from education. That comes from capital investment. That comes from NOT importing poverty. That comes from businesses that are only economically sustainable if they have low wages to move outside of the U.S. to countries where low wages help the people not drag the country down. We needed them a century ago. Other countries need them now. Trump actually understood this.

That is hilarious. :D It could only be made better if it were plugged into the car and the generator was running. I guess if you are going to be dependent upon electricity, you better take it with you or just rent a dang car.
