Who do you think created all that technology you play with, son?
Like BurtonBraves said, if I had to make a bet that a lot of it was probably created by people in their 20s-40s.

Also, like I said:
I get that there are a ton of exceptions, but I don't think I would be wrong in saying that a majority of people 60/65-70+ aren't very technology literate, if at all.
and
I guess what I’m more referring to is older people who are, I guess I could say, technologically illiterate to the point of blatant ignorance?

Did you watch those hearings or whatever they were meant to be of Zuckerberg and the people from Google? The people there had no idea what the tech people were talking about and couldn't hardly follow a single response. Doesn't matter what generation made technology what it is today, what matters is a majority of the people in our government have no fucking clue about some of the most common technology there is.

It would be closer to 180-200 million people (ages 18+), but your overall point is valid still.

We are talking 1K per month for those people.... so 1000x190,000,000.... $190 Billion PER MONTH. Over a year that's $2.28 Trillion over ONE YEAR. A four year term would net over $9 Trillion, or just shy of the national debt added under President Obama in his entire 8 years. That's without ANY spending on ANYTHING else, infrastructure, schools, the universal healthcare the Dems want, the erasure of student debt and implementation of free college, foreign aid, military spending, government overhead costs, plus any additional investigations they would like to run during that time.

So.... yeah..... never mind what we have to pay per term on the existing national debt, trade deficits that still linger, and that our GDP is a relatively scant $19 Trillion (which goes faster than most expect....).

I'll ride President Trump as bad as any Dem; stop spending us into oblivion. You CANNOT spend your way into prosperity. Because you then have to tax your way out of it. And that never works well.
Anyone remember the old commercial about the Chinese teacher giving an economics history lesson about the US?

Because that could very well be a reality if we just toss money at stupid ass programs.

You want an income? Take your ass to work. There is a MASSIVE deficit in trade-based jobs. You know.... the ones where you work with your hands and actually sweat and work hard? Yeah. Those ones. The ones people dove into college debt to the tune of 6 figures so they wouldn't have to do those jobs.... because somewhere society labeled those jobs as 'beneath' them.

Most people do take themselves to work, and even that is not enough.

Note the full context of my post, regarding deficits in trade jobs. People get jobs at Walmart and fast food joints, where there isnt much skill involved, then cry online (with their $600 phone no less, but thats another point) when they dont make enough. Skilled jobs will always pay more but usually demand you push yourself physically and mentally.

Put in the hard work, reap the rewards. Settle for mediocre jobs, dont cry when the pay is matches the skill set required. Pretty simple stuff IMO.

I'd be lying if I said this past week or so hasn't been hilarious as fuck to watch from a distance.

Field for the next Democratic Debate has been set it seems. Meeting the polling and donor requirements are:

Vice President Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Cory Booker, Congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Amy Klobuchar, HUD Secretary Julian Castro, and Businessman Andrew Yang.


Tulsi Gabbard, Tom Steyer, and Marianne Williamson narrowly missed the cutoff.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand ended her bid for the White House today after missing the debate.



At this point in time, if I had to guess, it's gonna come down to Biden, Sanders, and Warren. I don't think anyone else has the potential to end up at the top of the ticket.

I'm shocked they let Gabbard slide into the debate considering she nuked Harris' chances at the last debate. Biden, Sanders and Warren are going to be terrible choices when they're forced on a debate stage with Trump and they're no longer protected by the networks.

What are you talking about? The main stream networks will be the ones hosting the Presidential debates. They'll still be "protecting" the Democrat in those debates. They sure as hell won't be doing Trump any favors or throwing HIM any softballs.

I actually look forward to the statistical breakdowns of those debates, almost more than the debates themselves, because those usually show if the moderators have a bias or preference.
I mean, most of us KNOW already how that will likely shake down, but it's still entertaining to watch the cable media claim they are being attacked while still clearly holding a ideological bias.

Before someone else says anything, I love the concept of reporting and media. What I don't like is how big they've gotten, exclusivity deals, and the amount of money involved and how they all seem to lean heavily on pundits and talking points over simple fact reporting because they have to get ratings, and ratings=money (see the nefarious loop they are in?). Those things tend to corrupt the reporting process, thus leading to viewers being mislead, misinformed, or outright lied to.

Back on the topic of the debates, I don't see Harris winning, and most definitely not Sanders. Biden will likely (despite the plethora of miscues and gaffes since starting his campaign) take the nomination, mainly because Superdelegates in the DNC are a thing for some ungodly, anti-democratic reason. Warren has a SLIM chance, but simply doesn't project the power, presence, or command authority that is required.

Ultimately, when the superdelegates choose who will be the Democratic Presidential Candidate (Biden), he will inevitably select a female to run along side, not because of qualifications or ability, but simply because it's demanded. Failing to do so will all but ensure his defeat in 2020, while picking a POC and/or female will at least give him an outside chance.

And this is where it'll start to break down for him, is coming up with a platform to make stands that aren't exclusive to the far-left socialist democrats and more palatable to the middle ground voters.
He can't run on economy, and if he does, Trump is sure to remind people who was VP for the previous eight years, which, based on optics alone, won't help Biden's cause (many of the Dem Candidates have separated themselves from Obama so far in at least some capacity).
Campaigning on universal income will win him left voters that would probably have voted for him anyway, but would alienate anyone who is tired of government spending or has concerned about the national debt.
Immigration is bound to continue to be hot, and it does seem as though many areas that aren't beholden to a metropolitan area (NY, Chicago, Detroit, etc, with the exception of LA it seems as people are starting to get tired of what that city is becoming) are more in favor of the track taken thus far.

To sum it up: there's a group who will vote Biden even if he fumbles massively, same rings true for Trump. As seems to be the norm, it's going to be the average Joe/Jane that swings the balance. Again.

What am I talking about? When it's Biden/Warren/Sanders vs. Trump they can try to protect the Dem. nominee all they want, but it will be on full display because its the general election debates. The first DNC debate was a disaster because they catered so much to ultra progressive policies and tried to keep it simple. Single answer questions with hands raised. Looked pretty bad for optics. The debates so far have been issues that are disastrous for a general election and required little explaining of answers. Trump would drag them on a debate stage for these and he clearly is willing to not give a **** to speak to the average person.
Examples:
  1. Eliminate private health care in exchange for government run healthcare. Ok. Rough estimates are more than 2/3 of Americans are on private healthcare. Cheap and at affordable costs. If you don't want insurance (Why the hell not?) the individual mandate (~$2000 in tax penalties under 'Obamacare') is eliminated. Government healthcare Bernie has already stated those with private insurance would lose it. Have to, no exceptions (except the uber rich as always) and taxes would go up. All the prominent Dem. nominees have backed this as well. Trump counterpoint for everyone to see and no way for the networks to hide it is going to be as follows: Your going to punish 2/3 of citizens for the benefit of 1/3, while taxing them more. Yea right. Then your going to ruin all these insurance related jobs (case managers, insurance sellers, etc.). Hundreds of thousands of people out of jobs just like that and its not like government jobs will be instantly created to fill this vacuum created.
  2. Insurance for non-citizens. Trump would drag all of them on this. Seriously, they all raised their hands in supports of this. Common sense says more drawing from the system than paying into will kill said system. That's just idiotic and screams 'Everyone flood our borders'.
  3. Green New Deal. They were all quick to support it, but it was quickly pulled from AOC's .gov page because it was so stupidly written. Literally had 'eliminate cow farts' in it. I'm all for environmentally friendly/responsible, but you can't have slush funds for all these "green'' projects when the politicians who support it are such giant hypocrits (giant mansions, excessive travel, etc.). No one with common sense buys what they're selling. Also, how are you going to build building when you do away with giant steel and wood structures. Building upwards is better than outward as its less environmental impact.
I could go on and on about the policies alone that Trump would just ream them on, but there are also more blatant character issues that he can expose. Warren literally lied about her ethnicity to advance her career and faced hardly zero backlash. That's the definition of white privilege that the "progressives" supposedly hate. Biden - just look up how rich his son has gotten in the last decade. Both Biden and Sanders would be around 80 when they actually take office and one is already showing severe public speaking issues (gaffes as the media has labeled them, but it's like every time he speaks).

The moral of my rant is simple though. Yes they can cater/protect the DNC on the issues in a primary election, but not when the opponent has shown he will confront everything and say anything he feels like. Remember, he's already weathered plenty of controversies and its slowly being proven that there was corruption that sandbagged his first few years in office. Plus, he's got a lot of statistics helping him (GDP, jobs and wages growth without forced policies, record unemployment, etc.)

P.S. - I've seen that Gabbard didn't make the cut for the next DNC debate. She nuked Harris and I think that she was the chosen one in the beginning. So apparently she rubbed the powers that be the wrong way and donations got tanked.

Let's not play into conspiracies here lmao, she met the donation requirements, but not the polling ones.

No posts in here for a while huh?


I think it's fair to call Bernie Sanders the frontrunner at this point. Looks like he's heading to a strong win in the Nevada caucus today. Can't wait for him to ride the wave into the White House.

It's not gonna happen, Darren. Trump is going to get reelected and everyone will just have to get used to it, just like when Obama won his second term.

Yep. The economy is rolling. Unemployment is at an all time low. Construction is booming in residential and commercial area's all around my town. I'm going to vote to keep that going instead of my taxes quadrupling to pay off other peoples debt.

Yeah I agree, and I have a comment on that...

People should be responsible for the decisions they make. If your decision was to go to university for 4 years to party and get a history degree, sorry bud, that's not my fault. Besides, I only went to a private college for 2 years, with scholarship, and I accumulated 40k in student loans. That's because the government basically didn't give me any student aid on account of my parents making too much money, even though my parents didn't pay a dime for me to go to that school. After taking 20k in government loans, I was forced to take another 20k in private loans. I graduated 2 years ago and I've paid off about half of those debts. No one has helped me. Now I'm supposed to turn around and give that same government even more of my money so that they can cancel someone else's debt? They must be out of their minds.
