Nice deduction. You need to have your caretaker give you your meds and go to bed.

Right. I'm the one who needs to be on meds. Not the guy calling for genocide.

Another fine deduction. What I believe is another's actions are not up to me or anybody else.

In a society where people are living in close proximity to each other, we need laws to guide behavior. You don't get to do whatever you want. If that's how you want to live your life, you should really go live off the grid; where the next human being is dozens of miles away.

Sounds like you're the one that is scared of people. One again, you're making stupid assumptions. If you break our laws you should be punished. Now, you on the other hand, as a Bernie Boy, must think our laws don't matter, especially regarding illegals in America.

You just said, "another's actions are not up to me or anybody else."

Now you are saying, "If you break our laws you should be punished."

Which is it? Both of these statements cannot be true at the same time.

Your deduction makes no sense. Each individual is, or should be free to make any decision, and should be responsible for same. Get it? As a Bernie Boy, you are supporting lawlessness.

I finally got around to reading the Brookings report.

One of the first things i do when looking at scholarly research is to spend a few minutes looking at the author. In this case, here's the educational background of Richard Reeves, the Brookings Institute researcher who studied middle income in Las Vegas:

Looking at his CV, he has many publications on wealth in the USA, almost exclusively from a singular perspective: upper middle class and above are reaping the rewards of their work, and somehow this is bad. Politico, a left-wing progressive publication, likes him a lot. That says something.

That's fine - everyone has a point of view. In this case the author starts with his point of view, and his point of view is best summarized by the title of a book he published a couple of years ago:
Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do About It
And what to do about it? Reeves is a progressive redistributionist. So... that is his point of view, and the point of view he brought with him when he looked at Las Vegas.

I don't listen to NPR; it is more efficient just to go the the DNC Website https://democrats.org/ to read their press releases.
