People don't understand what socialism and right wing capitalism are. If they did the country would

Far left

A main tenet of socialism is nobody gets wiped out by a bad choice. It is like insurance and spreads the debt among everybody. 2008 created the perfect example of socialism:

“Amid the chaos caused by Lehman’s collapse, the big banks got hundreds of billions of dollars in bailouts. Aggressive stimulus efforts by Washington officials injected trillions of dollars more into the financial markets and the economy, helping to end the recession, trigger record bank profits and fuel a historic stock market boom.”

But there were no big bailouts (socializing) for lower- or middle-income Americans.

Here is right wing capitalism where you are solely responsible for your decisions and problems:

“About 8.7 million people lost their jobs, sending the unemployment rate soaring to 10%. Housing prices dropped by a third nationwide from their 2006 peak — and even further in California — causing as many as 10 million people to lose their homes.”

The cornstarch replacement for talc is one of the most

volatile powered grains. Can cause explosions. Also under certain conditions it can host bacteria and fungi. I demonstrated to my wife how cornstarch blown into an open flame resembled a blow torch.

Boeing is not the first software sourced plane crash.

“Air France Flight 296 was a chartered flight of a new Airbus A320-111 operated by Air France.[1] On 26 June 1988, it crashed while making a low pass over Mulhouse–Habsheim Airport “

Pilot says plane was low speed/altitude and the plane defaulted to landing protocol and would not accept increase power signals. Hit treetops and crashed.

Doesn’t seem possible that 31 years later software causes multiple fatality crashes. Space shuttle cost so much because of quadruple redundancy safety checks. Hubble had problems because of 6th grade level problem overlooked. Accidents should carry weight of human suffering when ascribing blame. If corporations deserve recognition as people then they should carry liability as people.

----Reducing the office of President to the performance stage

for an egotistical elitist antagonizing gross bully has got to be responsible for growing violent behavior universally.

Obama, you cemented poor people to the bottom of incomes

when you chose Geithner. The success of the world depends upon pandering to poor people with good paying jobs. Put people to work with good paying jobs and prosperity will thrive. Supporting the status quo that permits trillions of dollars removed from the world economy creating poverty is the path to destruction. You should support Bernie in his effort to get spending money in the hands of people that will buy massive amounts of consumables. That is the real and true economy. Supporting the Ponzi economy that siphons fees from bets on performance is not self supporting. Eventually overpriced stocks collapse, prices drop and the ultra wealthy buy up more. You and the status quo deprive opportunity by allowing profit taking to put even more money into non productive derivative and derivative type trades. When full employment doesn’t trigger rising wages a crash becomes awesomely imminent. Obama, pledge your support to pandering to the poor by supporting jobs producing investing. Pledge your support to ending the Ponzi economy by making the stock market valuable from earnings. Pledge your support to help Bernie pander to the poor by ending gambling in the stock market and supporting laws that will put money into goods and services producing investments. Obama, pledge support for the national interest and promise to break the back of promoting private interests. Make money work to build a wealthy population. Pander to the poor with opportunity, health and education. Money is the lifeblood of an economy not a tool to create poverty. Make money work.

----Bloomberg touts taxing the poor: 'Do you want to pander to those people?'

Incredible for a Democratic to take a stand against the poor. He demeans poor people to the level of animals. Taking a stand against the poor is not good.

I do apologize for citing the “Washington Times”. It is public information that Bloomberg wanted to tax or ban sugary drinks starting in 2012. Since it was generic information I paid no notice to the source. I had no knowledge of the Washington Times but being familiar with his banning taxing sugary drinks since 2012 I did not question what was public information. I again apologize for citing a right wing conservative source. My position on everything I have posted is far left progressive. I have absolutely no problem with banning sugary drinks. The only reason they are not banned is pandering to suppliers and vendors. If there is any honesty in concerns for health then sugary drinks would be banned.

----"Here in GA you get free tuition from the lottery if you're grades are above X."

Grades qualifying for any type of educational assistance is wrong. It perpetuates the income gap and poverty class. The National Interest is served by free education. A rapidly accelerating progressive income tax code sustained by a dedication to higher paying wages would finance prosperity. Realigning with taxes the value of stocks dependent on earnings would stabilize and sustain prosperity. Consumerism is the only solution to providing living wages. There are zero waste and emission factories now. That debunks that poverty is necessary for clean air. There is no justification for any kind of discrimination regulating access to education. The right wing has ingrained its perception that assistance is bad. The country can increase wages and GDP without pollution.

Where is the actual pile of cash???

“The pool of 3,000 companies held about $2.7 trillion in cash as of their latest financial filings, off about $100 million from the year-earlier period”

Does somebody have the answer to where the actual pile of paper currency is kept??? Seriously, I have thought about this for years and have no clue. I’ve seen the allusions to drug money on pallets in storage sheds but where does BP , Apple, Microsoft etc pile their actual cash. Do they have large vaults ?????

Why is money allowed to be removed from the economy???

An economy depends on money to function. The last 50
or so years have trended into GOP laws making it easier to remove money from the economy converting high velocity fluid money into private hands for the purpose of accumulating wealth. Taking profits by liquidating assets into cash and then sequestering the cash in privately held funds, foundations, trusts, security instruments.....strangles the economy contrary to the National Interest. Money has to be regulated back into the economy. Money can be used to build, buy or finance but not accumulated for the sake of creating large cashes of money. Allowing money to be accumulated for the sake of creating large fortunes is no different than damming up a river at the head of a valley to deprive the valley of life giving water. Either spend money or lose it.

Two things every thanksgiving. One is cooking a turkey to render

stock for gravy. I stuff a well seasoned turkey with peeled warmed fruit and quartered Vidalia onions capping it with sticks of seasoned cultured butter rolled in finely perforated self basting aluminum foil nested on top of quartered vegetables in 2 quarts of stock. Start roasting midnight at 180 degrees. Monitor with two digital probed thermometers. When deep internal temperature reaches 160 kill heat and let it set til reaching 165. The result is falling off the bone juicy tender cooked turkey in about a gallon of the most unbelievable tasting turkey/fruit stock. The rich fruity broth is drawn off to make the unique savory gravy.

Second is a desert I created called Strawzagna. Built like layered lasagna. Pasta is replaced with pie crust, tomato sauce replaced with slightly gelled sliced strawberry filling and the ricotta replaced with New York Style Cream Cheese Filling. Three layers of pie crust, strawberries and cream cheese filling. Refrigerate to solidify and serve cold. Wishing a safe happy holiday season to all.
