    Willie, I agree with Ou812. Relax and enjoy life. Leftie/socialists come here after listening to "progressive" hate radio to have a pity party over the nothing burgers fed to them by talking heads. Give me a period in time when you spent the day listening to the whining "progressives” and tell me any of them enjoyed actually themselves while on the air. It's either the poop joke hour with Stephanie Miller and other idiots screeching in the background, or the sky is falling everything is bad hour with some other bobblehead.

    Conservatives come here purely to watch in amazement how far a leftie/socialist will go in an attempt to make their point and then laugh out loud at their lunacy.

    Let it go and understand they have their tripe to shovel out as do the righties. Most righties just do it with a bit of tongue in cheek ala Limbaugh.

    Build solar panels in your spare time or proudly don that pink hat so carefully knitted by a Joy Behar fan and go outside for long walks (avoid the times leftie/socialists are outside screaming at the sky in protest) and when you return, your internet will still be there (thank you Al Gore), Netflix will still allow you to completely avoid biased politics pumped out from the Fox News wannabees, NYC will not be six feet underwater, people will still be able to mail in as many early ballots as they want, your paycheck will be a bit larger, Japan will not be irradiated, dolphins will still be free from tuna cans, and this one's for all the leftie/socialists, Donald J. Trump will still be your president.

    Above all....,Resist, have a nice day, and try to manage a smile for at least one second every waking hour. It will make a difference in your life.

  • Not a $1,000 tax cut, but a $1,000 high interest loan!   2 days 1 hour ago

    Schumer, Pelosi, et al, have to be gritting their teeth at the Apple news. Cook is supposed to be on their side, not on the side praising the tax cut. You also got the news coming about the FISA warrants.

    But don't worry. Schumer will make sure that the news is only about the alleged govt. shutdown. He has to make sure that some americans suffer so that the good news of the Apple investment gets taken out of the news cycle.

    The Schumer shutdown...ha ha. What has happened to the democratic party in this country?

    My daughter, a honor student at Ashwaubenon high school in Wisconsin. Recently had a civics class in school. She posed a question to me-because she knows that this is an interest of mine. She said...

    Quote: "Dad, in a mathematical equation where there is a baseline number. And then there's a set number added. But then a larger number subtracted"... "Again and again and again"... "Well dad, you eventually end up in negative integers". She then said...

    Quote: "Dad, you sure don't need advanced math to figure this one out". "So why does our government continually spend way more than it takes in"?

    From the mouths of babes...

    #44 Willie,

    You come across as a reasonable person. Relax, don't fret about things you have no control over....leave that to the washed up lefties. Smile alot, have fun, do something you like...

    What cutting corporate taxes does. It increases payroll taxes.

    HC California's homeless problem has a lot to do with its climate. Would you rather be homeless in Minneapolis or Long Beach? Not to mention the $0.10 cent a can fee. Which is a great way to keep cans off of the street but also provides an income source for the homeless. You see them every morning searching the hotel garbage bins. One thing that I notice in CA is a lack of public restrooms. You go into a grocery store in my state and there is a clean restroom that you can use. In CA they are locked up. My small town has 2 public restrooms at each city park. You do not see that in CA. I am going there next week for 1 week. Every time I see things that amaze me. It is a big problem that more has to be done about. Put porta potties on the streets of SF. Build housing. Provide jobs cleaning streets etc. Soup Kitchens. Do more than what is being done. When Reagan shutdown the mental hospitals in CA what was the effect?

    I happen to own Apple Stock, so do not think that Righty/Fascists have a monoply on that. The article clarified that Apple was not employing 20000 new employees as implied in lower quote but creating 20000 new jobs most in App fields. You also have to look at how that money overseas was created. A lot of it was made here but creative accounting makes it overseas. Who losses in all of this? The USA is getting 15% in Revenues. Much less than it would have. Less Revenues means that someone has to pay more. You might as well get your check books out.

    "The $38 billion tax payment from the Silicon Valley giant is set to be among the biggest payouts from the tax bill, and Apple said it would put some of the money it brought back toward 20,000 new jobs, a new domestic campus and other spending." Post 34.

    Round and round we go. And where we stop, seems obscure. what does the right know that the left is missing. Did we get a check from Mexico? Is Trump's tax audit over yet? Can we see it now? Are SS benefits safe from cuts? No Medicare cuts? Medicaid OK? Infrastructure repair gearing up? World class health care for all knocking at the door? Stock Market stable? Will these tax cuts actually raise federal income soon enough to avoid all this? Are Trump's genes really superior? Healthy enough for this presidential term, and the next one? (I want his doctor.) Seems like I should be worried. Please enlighten me so I can relax. Thanks!

    Why do you care if Trump fooled around? I thought liberals/progressives/democrats think you should just look the other way, ala Bill Clinton. After all, its only sex, right?

    This is why some from the religious community will support Trump over a democrat. From: 

    "The Trump administration announced on Thursday that it was taking new steps to protect doctors, nurses and other health workers who have religious or moral objections to performing abortions or sex-change operations, or providing other medical services. The move, one day before the annual March for Life in Washington, was a priority for anti-abortion groups.

    Administration officials urged people to report discrimination to a new unit of the federal government: the conscience and religious freedom division of the office for civil rights at the Department of Health and Human Services.

    Roger Severino, the director of the civil rights office, promised that he and his staff would thoroughly investigate every complaint. For too long, Mr. Severino said, the federal government has ignored such complaints or treated them with “outright hostility.”"

    Ou812, there is no point. You are dealing with a very angry, bitter old leftie/socialist. Their purpose in life appears to remain unhappy 100% of the time 365 days per year. I did not listen today but from the lack of attention here by Thom Hartmann over the last couple of weeks I suspect it's,


    That ought to lower the plood pressure of the malcontents by at least 40%. Saves on medical care costs for sure. Everybody wins.

    Number 38 Legend

    What's your point.....citing an article that says the vast majority of money is coming to the USA and that 20,000 jobs will be created by Apple is marketwatches point, what's your point???

  • Organized Money Is Dangerous To Democracy   3 days 1 hour ago

    Numbers 30 and 32 legend:

    In 2010, democrats lost the house of 2014 Democrats lost the Senate....hardly an endorsement of the Obama administration.....Apple is paying 38 billion in taxes (not 38 million) and bringing the entire 246 billion dollars back to the USA. The 15.5% is a one time only offer. Apple's income tax rate will be 21%. Like every other corporation in the usa. Apple will use the remainder of its repatriated money 246B-38B to expand operations in the USA. Creating 20,000 jobs in the next 5 years....I do hope you washed up lefties run against all the positives coming from tax reform pointed out by Diane, you have absolutely no business sense.

  • RANDOM RANTS from a FRUSTRATED LIBERAL   3 days 1 hour ago

    gumball, you said the following:

    Quote gumball:You believe the primary factor is top end tax rates.

    What I said was that when Reagan lowered the top tax rate the GDP decreased (I gave you references.) I would agree with you that our small tariffs have a stronger influence over wage stagnation.

    Once again, my main objection, to what you are saying, is that it is myopic to look at a single metric (GDP). Larry Beinhart wrote a series of articles for Alternet suggesting a group of metrics that we should observe when evaluating an economic policy. Of course, the policy he was looking at was high taxes. The metrics he suggested were the GDP, the DOW, the number of jobs, and the median wage inflation adjusted. Based on this group of metrics a low top tax rate was damaging.

    If I was being myopic (it is so seductive to a lazy mind like mine), I would chose economic inequality.

    Well, you are definitely corrrect about the democrat party melting.

  • Organized Money Is Dangerous To Democracy   3 days 2 hours ago

    Just curious... What is it with these far right ( white) Republican teabagger or neocon crazies? When they put their feet in their mouths, and blurt out quotes that are blatantly "racist"... They either lie, and deny ever saying it.. Or.. They try to defend their statement/actions by doubling down and saying -"I'm not a racist, I've known lots of blacks (or Mexicans, or Asians, etc)... Or... I cant be a racist, l have/ had a black friend...

    I'm not naive. I'm not saying there's absolutely no racism or racial disagreements/issues in the party with the big "D" in front of it... But,you NEVER hear Liberals or Progressives pull the outright lying or ridiculous doubling down crap.

    The big "D" party (flawed as it might be) definitely does an infinitely better job of representing the "melting pot" that is America..

The question that is constantly being asked, particularly on the talking heads on television, is "what do the Democrats have to do to regain political power?" What does it take?
