Only way to solve climate change is human depopulation. Ironically, climate change might actually help us do that. World is way, way too overpopulated with humans, while we have killed off 50% of wildlife in the past 40 years.

Trump called out Kerr to distract you from the fact that the richest 400 families now pay a lower tax rate than the middle class, the first time that has happened in over 100 years.

Four percent of gun-related deaths are committed by someone with an “assault-style” rifle. That means 1,591 of the 39,773 people who were killed by gun violence in the U.S. in 2019 were harmed by a weapon similar to an AR-15.

In just the last 100 years, 100 million people were murdered by communism alone. To compare the death of 1,591 people to 1 million people every year for the last 100 years is something only a clown would do!

Remember when Bernie had an effective tax rate of 13.5% in 2014?

http://www.businessinsider.com/bernie-sanders-releases-his-2014-tax-returns-2016-4 

That's 10.5% less than the 400 richest families, 11% less than the middle class and 1.5% less than someone who made $10,000 that year. All this while being in the top 5%. 

Eh em mister moron, a congressman reporting a 200,000 salary? And you’re complaining about him using a couple loopholes, which if he didn’t use you’d be bitching at how he’s an idiot? Yeah this is a no win situation. This is literally the participating in society meme.
 

He should just be corrupt as hell, make 20 million and pay a little higher tax to appease akawest.

If you think about it, our government has already instituted communism for the Native Americans. You should be happy for them.

The point of my post wasn’t to defend these countries that have committed atrocities, it’s just ironic that when people talk about their own history they have some severely rose tinted colored glasses, that’s all.

Which is what can cause these issues to begin with because people don’t learn from the past.

“Jackson viewed the union as a federation of highly esteemed states, as was common before the American Civil War. He opposed Washington's policy of establishing treaties with Indian tribes as if they were foreign nations. Thus, the creation of Indian jurisdictions was a violation of state sovereignty under Article IV, Section 3 of the Constitution. As Jackson saw it, either Indians comprised sovereign states (which violated the Constitution) or they were subject to the laws of existing states of the Union. Jackson urged Indians to assimilate and obey state laws. Further, he believed that he could only accommodate the desire for Indian self-rule in federal territories, which required resettlement west of the Mississippi River on federal lands.”

What happened 300 years ago is not relevant to what happened during the lives of people that are still living today.

I also found this to be interesting. 
 

“With increased waves of immigration from Europe, there was growing public support for education to encourage a standard set of cultural values and practices to be held in common by the majority of citizens. Education was viewed as the primary method in the acculturation process for minorities.

Americanization policies were based on the idea that when indigenous people learned United States (American) customs and values, they would be able to merge tribal traditions with American culture and peacefully join the majority of the society.“

 

They were given a chance to “play ball” so to speak, and refused. How is this in any way comparable to China?

Conservatives: you're just dumb and jelly because you didn't exploit tax loopholes yourself!

Also conservatives: death to sernie banders, exploiter of tax loopholes!

 

My honest opinion: anyone who says "circle back" or "touch base" in a professional setting should be put to the sword.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I don't think anyone should pay federal income tax.

Bernie on the other hand believes we should pay more yet he barely pays any at all.
