    It's on Bezos because literally nobody in the country benefits more off of doing business in the US than he does. His company can operate at a loss because it pays no taxes so it can destroy business all over the country. It's on people with the most money because as the old saying goes it takes money to make money. That alone gives him and others like him a massive advantage. There are people with money with just make money by investing in people with actual ideas that just lack capital. Some of those people literally just inherited a fortune. I think that's pretty whack, personally. As for people not doing business in poor areas because they're often violent, I mean, that's true but that's part of the reason why we have a federal government. If the federal government started converting old car plants and steel plants in places like Detroit, Chicago, LA, Philly, wherever and gave people an option to say hey, you can have this union job that you can support your family with or make next to nothing selling drugs for a gang in your neighborhood, I'm telling you right now a lot of those people are taking that job. Maybe not all of them but it's a start. Part of the issue with education is the enormous cost which people against free college have a great point on. They get all this federal and state money and give their buddies nice cushy administration jobs and stuff like that. I think that's relatively easy to fix though. If you get federal and state money you can only devote x amount of dollars to administration. The profits you make for athletics, x amount has to go to actual education. If not you can always be a private university and get no money. I think part of the reason why people pick the wrong fields to study in is it's such a huge decision to make when you're 18 and once you've invested a certain amount of time and money you're kind of locked in. Public schools do such a poor job of preparing you and offering guidance and information. You hardly learn anything about economics or personal finance or really much of anything for that matter in public school. You learn enough to take a standardized test to hopefully get good enough scores to compete for money. How does that make sense? We're sending kids to obedience factories, churning out drone people and medicating the fuck out of them. A lot of parents are both working 40 hours a week. It's hard to help with homework or keep your kids out of trouble when nobody is around and mom and dad are under a massive amount of stress trying to make It happen and keep everyone's head above water.

    People make their own choices so at the end of the day you're not going to eliminate poverty completely but if we could at least pretend it was an issue and even attempt to do anything about it, that'd be dope. I see people talk about how much they want to see mental health addressed so they can keep their guns. Plenty of people in this country who are homeless are mentally ill. Can we talk about how 1 in 5 children lives in poverty? That's 13.3 million kids in the richest, most powerful country in the world. I bet you if Bezos put half his fortune to that cause we would be in a much better place in that regard. Spoiler alert, He's not going to, most of it is probably sitting in bank accounts.

    Prohibition of alcohol, drugs and gambling and poverty are pretty much the reasons why organized crime exists. Do I think ending the drug war would be a magic bullet to end organized crime? No. Do I think it would be a much more effective solution than further militarizing the police force that apparently already Don't know the meaning of non lethal force despite having tasers, pepper spray and batons? You bet your sweet ass I do. Lol

    Yeah, instead of ending the drug war and addressing poverty, Let's further militarize our police force that's blowing people away on a daily basis.

    Trump Regime thread.

    What they need to do is stop trying to put their finger on the scale and let US figure it out because at the end of the day We're the ones who will decide to come out to vote to put that person in office. I know when you say they you include us into the equation but just the way you worded it got to the heart of the issue to me. Media and party elites need to stop trying to tell us who the favorite is and pushing one candidate over the other. They need to sell their plan for the future to the American people and let them decide. Being anti-Trump, as you said is decidedly not a plan for the future. People are struggling. Yang said this in an interview I watched with him and he is 100% correct. I'm paraphrasimg but he said nobody is voting to keep the status quo or go back to Obama. People see the real problems ahead and right in front of them and how far business as usual in Washington has gotten us to addressing those problems and whether anyone on the Den side wants to admit it or not, that's a big reason why we have Trump.

    Trump Regime thread.

    I think they need to attack each other. The cream will rise to the top that way and they'll get the strongest candidate. Primaries are still an election. The HOP has a ton of money unlike the DNC which is broke. They will leave no stone unturned going after the nominee. If they actually wanted to win the election they would back Sanders because he raises money and would help like minded Democrats raise money all over the country because he's a movement candidate. He's been talking about a political revolution for 5 years now. Sanders is the only chance they have at gaining Congress back and some of the state legislatures and governorships. Nobody comes out to vote to keep the status quo or to vote against Trump. Only party loyalists. Democrats need more than that. Their constituency knows they don't represent them and election turn out will continue to get lower and lower but the people running the show are getting massively wealthy off of destroying the party.

    The DNC and the media keep trying to protect their hand picked candidates as if Trump is going to take it easy on them. Even if they get soft ball questions by the moderators, Trump will say whatever he wants. Democrats want to lose. I'm convinced at this point that they're playing for 2024 where they will hope running against Trump will still work and Sanders won't be a threat.

    2019-20 NBA Season Thread

    3 straight losses for the Sixers now after the hot start. It was their first west coast trip though and it kind of highlighted the fact that Embiid's conditioning Isn't where it needs to be. Hopefully less weight means he can improve on that as the season goes on. When the Sixers gel I think they're going to be a uniquely old school team centered around defense and rebounding and I think with all these teams going for more shooting the Sixers style of play could be effective. Thybulle seems like a great pick. If he can develop a consistent 3pt shot he will be the best 3 and D guy in the game not named Klay Thompson.

    I'll say it again lol. This whole gender vs sex argument is a genius way to have everyone at each other's throats.

    Yeah I'm with you as far as saying that we have made a lot of progress on homophobia and racism but I do think it's a pretty big stretch to say it's a massive advantage. I also know that stuff will never be eliminated from society. That doesn't it can't be better though either.
