Looks like we all finally found a spot of common ground in nuclear power. Now why can't the rest of the country get it together.

Illegals deflate wages, work without getting SS benefits, and allow corporations more cheap labor. There's a solid argument to either find a way to legalize them or deport them. 

Government and corporations deflate wages, not immigrants. Employers are exploiting people's desperation. Desperation is not the fault of the immigrant who works just to live. Actually supporting the solidarity of workers abroad instead of being deliberately ignorant and being complicit in right wing death squads hired by corporations in latin america

Democrats wanted a wall and voted for it in 2013. Have you heard of operation gatekeeper? It was implemented by Bill Clinton’s presidency in 1994. In my opinion this is about political positioning for 2020.

Clintons are evil right wingers, but yeah in America the mainstream right are pretty much fascist ideologues these days so that's how hard the overtone window has shifted.

I guess we might reach a point where population growth really starts to cause problems but so far the opposite has happened. People are richer, healthier, better fed, and living longer, in every part of the world as the population grows. 

Chances are we level out at 10 billion and everything is fine. In fact most developed countries are about to have population decline which will probably cause more economic and societal problems than population growth. 

 

 

(Also, I wish people would stop freaking out about nuclear power, it is  by far the easiest way to decrease carban dioxide output).

Population is not an issue. The richer a country gets, the more the population levels out and then declines.

I’ve always thought of politics as a bit of a mirage too. Like they’re all rich crooks who are lying, cheating, and stealing their way to power, the party lines don’t really change that. My point I guess was just that right now it appears to be more important for democrats to not allow Trump to get a “win” with the wall than it is to tackle actual issues.

This is probably the first time we agree on something.

Whenever someone says nuclear they immediately think of nukes or chernobyl, when in reality yes it does produce waste and radioactive material however much safer and cleaner than the ladder.

You need to spend money to grow the economy. Unless you like stepping in shit in your national parks.

Covering yourself in fecal matter to own the libs

So all of those fast food workers are not part of the economy?

 

Trump went out of his way to pay low wage earners, not 5 star chefs like Barry or any President before him.

 

Greatest POTUS in the last 30+ years.

If someone does not do the job that they are hired for they shouldn't be paid.

 

Read the fine print before you make a contract.  Even a stupid Socialist like yourself should know that.

Bullshit fucking lie. That's why congress is still being paid during a government shutdown, yet "essential" government employees are currently not?

Essential Government employees are getting back pay, stop with this silly "not getting paid" stuff.

Sure it sucks, but their Government contract also states that there is a possibility that their pay could be temporarily suspended, and with Democrats taking control of the House every single Government employee knew what was coming.

 

If you are too stupid to understand why the members of Congress continue to get paid then there is no hope for you ever understanding the basics about Government.

When you can't get money to eat you can't work and have to find somewhere else to get money. You are a terrorist motherfucker.

Get your story straight, Niku.  I'm having trouble remembering how you assume my identity.

Oh that’s so nice of the government to back pay them. I guess they’ll tell their mortgage broker that they’ll just back pay them too. Maybe the government will also backpay the credit card interest these people will deal with too.

Its not the Democrats fault. Mitch McConnell could have opened up the government if he wanted to but he himself is a slime ball as well. It’s no coincidence that the most off the hinge president is also going to hold the longest government shutdown in US History. Wanting 5.9 billion of taxpayer dollars for a wall yet you praise him for buying McDonald’s for NCAA champions that don’t even get paid by the NCAA and make billions off their back OMEGALUL.

This entire shutdown just highlights the need to quadruple the size of our government and vote for socialism.

They are making more during the shutdown than they would if there was no shutdown.  Maybe if pelosi pulled her head out of her ass and had the Democrats pass a bill with a measly 5.7 billion dollars allocated for border security those people would be collecting their regular paychecks.

 

Cowardly, obstructionist Democrats are why the government is still shit down, and that is an irrefutable fact.

 

Another fact is that if Trump had spent tens of thousands of dollars on this dinner for children that shouldn't happen in the first place you would bitch and moan about it being too expensive.
