Simple things cannot be answered because of ignorance


Things lik,e what is Socialism? What is Capitalism? What is the Bill of Rights?


When I try to answer, "I don't know anything!"
"So many comments by Millennials seem to be based on poor education."


I know a teacher who openly says Socialism is better then Capitalism.

"The right are the ones stuck in the past." Yet, it is the left constantly complaining Trump does not follow PAST precedents!


We get all kinds of things said to about us when we bring up bill, hillary and obama. I think I smell a hypocrite.

Very true and quite sad.

It seems mainly older Americans who have been duped by the denialist movement.

The fact that carbon gases act as greenhouse gasses which contribute to warming didnít used to be controversial and as recently as 2008 was even accepted as fact by the GOP standard bearer. As the economic pain for big oil increased, the resistance to policy change and the rise of alternative facts within the CEC became a bigger problem. The arrival of Trump touched off a new era of post truth messaging for the GOP with these folks.

Federal Tax Revenue is at an all time high. Tax cuts GROW the economy, and increase total tax revenues. We have a SPENDING problem, and who loves to spend? Democrats and Republicans. Nobody wants to cut spending.

If we are going to spend this much I'd rather have a good economy that grows.

BS.

You have TDS and are DELUSIONAL. Obama had a pathetic 1.6% average GDP growth over eight years of Fed Quantitative Easing, and near ZERO interest rates. Trump knows a Carbon Tax would kill the economy and not do a damn thing for climate change. Your "WOKE" policies will only make things worse.

There's no lack of 0.1%ers who'll happily pollute in return for adding a fraction of a percent to their already considerable wealth. We can see this. Because - get this - we can see pollution happening before our eyes.

I don't doubt it. But first, what do you call old?

But being 80 and looking at my peers, maybe so. I am fortunate enough to have grown grandkids to set me straight.

How about posting all the fake stuff coming out of the troll farm so all the old poops on CD posters can see the fakes news they fell for. Since you are so good at identifying it.

Beware, most posters here were not aware of the kids from Macedonia posting fake stuff on FB and earning more in a month than their parents did in a year.

No they just call anything that is not what they agree with fake news. Plain and simple. See how often this happens in threads on here. They attack the source or go and say it is fake because it goes against their views.

" Tax cuts GROW the economy, and increase total tax revenues." A FACT many on the left always ignore and refuse to accept.

More Than 8.3 Million Jobs Created Since August 2003 In Longest Continuous Run Of Job Growth On Record

WASHINGTON -- Today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released new jobs figures - 18,000 jobs created in December. Since August 2003, more than 8.3 million jobs have been created, with more than 1.3 million jobs created throughout 2007. Our economy has now added jobs for 52 straight months - the longest period of uninterrupted job growth on record. The unemployment rate remains low at 5 percent. The U.S. economy benefits from a solid foundation, but we cannot take economic growth for granted and economic indicators have become increasingly mixed. President Bush will continue working with Congress to address the challenges our economy faces and help facilitate long-term economic growth, job growth, and better standards of living for all Americans.

* Real GDP grew at a strong 4.9 percent annual rate in the third quarter of 2007. The economy has now experienced six years of uninterrupted growth, averaging 2.8 percent a year since 2001.

* Real after-tax per capita personal income has risen by 11.7 percent - an average of more than $3,550 per person - since President Bush took office.

* Over the course of this Administration, productivity growth has averaged 2.6 percent per year. This growth is well above average productivity growth in the 1990s, 1980s, and 1970s.


By 2003, Mr. Bush grasped this lesson. In that year, he cut the dividend and capital gains rates to 15 percent each, and the economy responded. In two years, stocks rose 20 percent. In three years, $15 trillion of new wealth was created. The U.S. economy added 8 million new jobs from mid-2003 to early 2007, and the median household increased its wealth by $20,000 in real terms.

But the real jolt for tax-cutting opponents was that the 03 Bush tax cuts also generated a massive increase in federal tax receipts. From 2004 to 2007, federal tax revenues increased by $785 billion, the largest four-year increase in American history. According to the Treasury Department, individual and corporate income tax receipts were up 40 percent in the three years following the Bush tax cuts. And (bonus) the rich paid an even higher percentage of the total tax burden than they had at any time in at least the previous 40 years. This was news to theNew York Times, whose astonished editorial board could only describe the gains as a “surprise windfall.”"
