Many others do as well, even more so when Trump won. Sorry, what you were calling demoracy was actually socialism and yes, right now with Trump replacing Obama and given the political climate in Europe, that light is dimming.  (17 hrs ago | post #67900)

Like when you played the Obama card, or how about the "It was Bush's fault" card. The sign that you had lost before it began.  (17 hrs ago | post #67899)

Really, so Obama is responsible for what is happening in Syria and Libya, not to mention all the other issues in the Middle East. Which by your logic make Obama worse than Bush. Just about any measurement has Bush doing better than Obama in that part of the world. As for insurance, how many more are no longer insured. As for the economy recovered, sorry, it has not but is now showing signs of recovering. Not to mention the reason why the price of gas fell, simple supply and demand, fewer people could afford the gas and the demand dropped. As much as wishing and hoping, isn't going to change what is reality and the reality is that Obama had eight years of dismal performance. One out of three working age people had dropped out of the work force, numbers not seen since Carter. A Middle East that is hotter than ever before. Instead of a low grade insurgency being more between tribes than anything else, we now have the Taliban and ISIS. Syria and the rebels have used chemical weapons, something that never happened under Bush.  (17 hrs ago | post #67897)

Climate change should not be 'partisan issue,' Kerry says

Time, how much time. Those who believe man is the cause are rather short in their view. A few centuries at most while those who point to nature as the primary source of change will point to hundreds of centuries of examples. And for climate change bringing conditions destructive to mankind, care to prove what you are talking about is climate and not weather. That it is not the natural actions that have been going on as long as the earth has existed. A example of this is atolls such as the Maldives. Many who consider climate the result of man will point that they are sinking and ignore that even if the ocean levels were failing, those atolls would eventually sink beneath the waves. Other land is subsiding and different places are rising. Man can and will ensure survival, not with the same solutions offered several decades ago against an ice age such as wind and solar, but as a natural process of living. Life is about change and those who seem to be worried about climate change are fighting something they cannot stop. Really, study the subject seriously and then tell me how man is threatened by climate. Don't forget to research past historical examples of those very same claims. Because I have studied that and have used it to repeatedly disproved those who still cling to AGW wrong.  (18 hrs ago | post #106)

And how many ended up unable to afford insurance or just opted to pay the fine instead. The fact is that the numbers tell a different story than the one you are trying to claim. And you can spout about what it was suppose to do, what it did was something entirely different. It literally priced many out of insurance, reduced the insurance for others. What insurance companies would do before is offered packages that were more tailored. For example, a policy that would offer care in case of testicular cancer would be totally useless to me, but was part of the package I would have to purchase under the ACA. The real truth is the ACA was itself failing. Instead of having nearly every state running it's own exchange, most states optied to let the federal government cover that. Other states that had exchanges, discovered that the costs were far higher and turned it over to the federal government. and the federal government exchange is also failing. Time to face the fact that the ACA was going to fail. Which means making changes to either make it work which would reduce coverage and raise the cost to those fifty million and more, or replacing it with something that works. .  (18 hrs ago | post #91)

House prohibits $15-an-hour minimum wage

Really, where in America is that where companies are not allowed to pay $30 a hour. Or is it more like they did not want them to be anything less than $30/hr and they went where they could get better people for a third of the cost.  (18 hrs ago | post #698)

House prohibits $15-an-hour minimum wage

Have you considered how much harder it is to find someone to be a CEO than asking you if you want fries with that. Have you ever looked at the hours those people work, the stress levels involved. Funny you have not problem with some athlete being paid 400 times more than the average worker and yet have problem with CEOs making similar money. As for the 1950-1970s, the 50'-60's had a economic boom as the result of people returning from war., along with a shortage of consumer goods as the result of the same war. There was a housing boom, a baby boom, which resulted in a pool of trained workers to fill those jobs. The minimum wage for the most part was considered to be a joke since most jobs paid far better and the rest were considered more in the nature of part time jobs such as after school jobs. As for the 70's, the minimum wage was more of a non factor for the simple fact that there was high unemployment as the result There were so many unemployed, who would of worked under the table for less. Sorry, but the fact is that if you had really bothered to study the history of the subject, study the subject period rather than whining about people rejecting your feel good solution that has never work, you would know that it is not going to do anything but make those making the minimum wage life worse by either making them unemployed, underemployed, and reducing the buying power of t=what they are making. Remember, when you whine about how much more CEO's are making, I can point out all those athletes, movie stars, singers, who are also making just as much for doing far less.  (18 hrs ago | post #697)

Why should it not rise. The cost of raising the minimum wage has to come from somewhere. As for the economy being stimulated, more wishful thinking. Like your wishful thinking on the cost of living should remain the same when raising the minimum wage. Raise the minimum wage, the cost of living will rise by more and the economy is NOT stimulated. The buying power of those wages goes down, cost of business goes up,leaving less disposable income.  (18 hrs ago | post #696)

Global Warming Standup Comedy

You mean the same approval rating that matched the poll numbers that had Clinton winning in a land slide? Same source as polls will generate the idea that he has the lowest approval rating of any president. He is something else to consider, if he has such low approval ratings and yet managed to generate so many votes, enough to win and if the few recounts are any indication, that he the popular vote is either very close or in his favor. What type of approval rating does Hillary Clinton have and would of had. I sure you want to believe that it would be higher, but can you prove it is not just wishful thinking of a snowflake.  (19 hrs ago | post #5037)

No, you have no desire to believe. As for evidence, there is plenty about CLinton. As for fake news, you mean like NBC, CNN, and other such news sources that have been caught making up the news. Then again, when have facts mattered when fiction was far tastier to you.  (19 hrs ago | post #77)

Trump is more a capitalist democrat than a socialist democrat. Basically a democrat that actually understands economics and what will and will not work. In some places like New York and the West Coast, that is enough to qualify as a republican. Trump is also an opportunist He understood that outside a select inner core of democrats, that Clinton was not that popular. Clinton had way to much in the way of baggage compared to just about any other possibility and lacked the charisma that both her husband and Obama had. If the DNC had been willing to back anyone else and yes that include Sanders, they would of most likely won. But the leadership of the DNC owed her and both sides establishment were more interesting in backing the establishment candidate. And Clinton was the stereotypical crooked establishment type straight from central casting. Hence the reason why Trump hung the crooked Hillary label. Which reminded the older voters of all the past problems and for the younger, the emails that proved that they had been cheated, that Sanders had been cheated by the DNC. As for destroying the ACA. More like the realization that it has been failing in spite everything they have been trying. There has been talk about replacing it with a single payer system, which in spite how badly some want it, was not going to happen. To many insurance companies and other businesses that offer insurance such as banks have to many lobbyist to let that happen. But they would be happy with a nationwide marketplace.  (19 hrs ago | post #37)

Thats right, 10,000 people who were not employed at all are now going to be working for Walmart and as far as the automation, new flash, the auto industry has been doing that for nearly a half century now. Thing about automation, is that it needs to be maintained and repaired. Which means well paying jobs for those who do that. d What you are upset about is that this is happening after Trump was elected. In 2008, after Obama was elected, even before he took office, the economy which was weak, tanked completely. If things continue on this trend, it will mean that Obama will be the one held responsible for eight bad economic years and the economic recovery will be credited to Trump. Which will make Obama blaming Bush in 09 look like a whiny weak leader.  (19 hrs ago | post #35)

Funny, but when the measurement prove that global warming is natural, you seem to have a problem with that math. When faced with the fact that the earth has been much warmer in the past, you seem to develop the maturity of Elmo. You seem to need PBS and Sesame Street since you have a problem with even basic learning. Maybe after watching a few years of Big Bird, you can move on to Word Girl. You seem to be as smart as many of the adults on that show.  (20 hrs ago | post #104)
