  1. Niku I'm not sure if you understand but minimum wage is 7.25 not 15. That's one of the primary reasons I am bashing it and assume the same for others.


    I work for a large company that tries to make everyone new start in one of the call centers. Last time I checked we were paying somewhere around 13 an hour. That's not a horrible deal for someone starting off out of college or someone without a degree trying to start a career.


    Guaranteeing 15 an hour would bone so many businesses so hard that they would have to shut down. Despite what gfh says, some places really can't afford to pay much more than they currently do and certainly couldn't keep operating if you got double the min wage guaranteed elsewhere.

    A job guarantee would hire as a last resort so it isn't competing with the private sector for workers. For some businesses, yes it is important for wage costs to be low to operate and it would not make sense for job seekers to choose the $8 per hour job over the $15 one unless there were unique personal benefits to that job such as friends or enjoyment. A loosening of taxes would offset the business' financial space to the worker which would ensure both the competiveness of the business and a living wage for workers.

  2. I don't think anybody is in favor of corporate welfare. Jobs for everyone at $15 an hour is still the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

    I also might add that corporate welfare as of now probably exceeds anything a job guarantee would ever cost lol. Add the military on top of that and a minimum wage job for a few million people seems like nothing :)

  3. Kinda scary knowing people like you exist in this country thinking corps are gonna pay for everything w/o leaving.


    Lets also talk about a guaranteed (.gov) job program that will cost trillions in an extremely low unemployment economy, not to mention the inflation it potentially will cause.


    ...and this is on top of free healthcare, free education and an inflated welfare program.


    God u are fucking ra tarded.

    The level of unemployment in the US is screwed as governments move the goal post as to what is considered unemployed. You can work 1 hour a week and be considered employed, this is also not including the hidden figures of individuals who simply drop out of the workforce and have given up seeking work.


    1 in 4 Americans do not have a full time job. The job guarantee would be costed enough that it would utilise all idle labour and resources not being used by the private sector, but at the same time not be costed too high that it would cause inflation. If inflation occurs. Government's would tax accordingly or raise interest rates. However given America's attitudes towards taxation, it is simply better to aim for full employment with as little inflation as possible without needing to tax people.

  4. We are going to start taxing the rich at 99.9% so that every American can make 15 an hour with health care....that will be the proposal

    Roosevelt taxed the wealthiest at 90% and it was the most prosperous era of American history. It was also the so called 'golden age' of capitalism.

    "A representative from Sanders's office said they had not yet done a cost estimate for the plan or decided how it would be funded, saying they were still crafting the proposal."



    You can't have cost estimates when you haven't planned what jobs are going to be provided and whether the jobs would cause inflation. That requires a lot of research, planning and accounting. 

  6. Grandpa has lost his mind.


    At least he isn't just saying "free shit". Russia had work camps too.

    Wow, apparently being employed by the government to create value adding assets that were not being utilised by the private sector for the public is considered 'free shit'.


    I don't think a minimum wage job with healthcare and transitional policies to help the worker enter the private sector is comparable to a gulag.

  7. Imagine calling a progressive a phag liberal, like I know you're uncomfortable with your sexuality and are probably pro life, up until the child is born that is like any other conservative. They must be born!!!! After that though you know what they are alive aren't they? fuck em 

    lol when Americans think anything that isn't liberal is conservative/republican.


    Conservatives at least are honest about the shit they do. 'Tax cuts for the rich, fuck over poor people UMAD BRAH MURICA'


    Liberals are virtue signalling corporate stooges that are either rich, or plain dumb and haven't realised that supporting gay marriage doesn't make you progressive.


    Liberals pretend that they care. Which is honestly worse than Conservatives who are just plain honest that they fuckin hate other human beings.

  8. You're on an american website dumbfuck.

    I didn't know this website was American. I thought it was a website for the competitive Halo community. You know, a place where people all over the globe reside. But yeah thanks for the shit post and more obnoxious US nationalism. Fuck you too :)

  9. Maybe if they did you would know how to spell privatize.


    Government education is a failure. Anyone that thinks otherwise is dumb as fuck.

    Your post distinctly supports my argument as you display a solid inability to comprehend that there are other ways of spelling privatise that majority of the western world use other than the American accepted 'z' spelling. You are displaying your American ignorance quite well and if you could afford basic education maybe you would realise (yes realise that is how it is spelt in countries that aren't America) that there are other ways of spelling things aside from your special snowflake way of spelling.


    This thread is embarrassing. 

  10. Nah, the two are not the same...sorry. We saw what radar on crack (promethean vision) did to halo as a pickup. We know what radar has done to competitive halo already and that won't change as a pickup. I'll never like or welcome radar in any capacity in competitive halo.

    Just to fact check you on that one, Promethean vision was never used as a pickup in Halo: 4. Vanilla or Ghostayame settings. 


    It was a loadout in infinity slayer.

  11. What do you think of the competitive merit of a no radar gametype that features a physical radar pick up on the map you can use similar to armour abilities like the Jetpack in Reach and the Thruster for H4.


    Could produce some very interesting dynamics.


    Let me know what you guys think. It's not a feature in any Halo but I'd like to know what you guys think of this idea.

  12. I'd like to see what beyond thinks of this statement.


    Come up with an argument either for or against the statement in the title. I personally believe Halo 4 is better but I wanna see what you guys say and what your reasoning is. You can talk about anything from Out of box settings, competitive settings, UI or just general enjoyment of the game doesn't matter, even campaign.


    I want some unbiased discussion on this.
