People at the bottom of the income ladder stay there because of their attitude and nothing else.

    BINGO! I just got off the phone with a friend who started out selling guitars for a large local music company back in the 80's. He's VICE PRESIDENT there now.

    My Dad started out as a mechanic in the Air Force. After 40 years of jumping through the hoops, he had a top position with the DOD writing the Defense budget and reporting to Carter and the Sec. of Defense.

    Read a story in Money magazine a while back. Couple worked part time jobs, the husband had two, moonlighting. They're only debt was their house. Had 2 kids, 2 cars and living the American Dream. The "secret" (I put this in quotation marks, as it's just common sense and strategic thinking) was dozens of cost-saving ideas to manage their money.

    It boils down to something 3rd Graders are taught: WANTS VS. NEEDS. For example, a Play Station is a want, food is a need. WAY too many people have no clue about this and really need an education on how to handle a budget.

    UBI will male poverty much worse, it’s obvious to anyone who understands math and economics. It will only make the wealthy even more so and truly stratify their ruling class and peasants.

    Lmaoooooo just like I thought. The cognitive dissonance is incredible!!! We are LITERALLY watching the ruling class consolidate wealth, censor everything and none of you have any critique whatsoever!!!

    We're LITERALLY watching the elites buy up every TV station, buy up every newspaper, censor YouTube, Twitter, and EVERY other platform they can get their hands on. WE LITERALLY just watched the big pharma make 33 billion this year off of a vaccine and buy off the government and you have no criticism for them WHATSOEVER. IT'S INCREDIBLE!!! You're watching the ruling class call you a DOG. A LITERAL MF DOG and you're STILL blaming the economies woes on working class people.

    Yep. It's all poor people's fault why they're poor. This country is better off now than it's ever been. To think otherwise means you're a communist.

    My goodness. Folk like you is what the ruling class rely on to keep poor people poor. You LITERALLY just watched poor people try to use the stock market in the same exact way rich folk use the stock market, only for the ruling class to change the rules in order for poor people to stay where they're at. AND YOU STILL BLAME THE WORKING CLASS!!! You're a world class boot licker bro. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    By displacing the current regime the Republican party can save us all from their incompetence.

    Other than that we don't need anymore saving than anyone else. From inflation, bad immigration policy, horrible energy policy, draconian mandates etc..

    Of course, because Republicans aren't bought out as well and won't serve the ruling class with idiotic policies as well

    Talk about moving goalposts. The dog thing was an analogy that's it but of course make a mountain out of a molehill.

    You might want to look up what capitalism and socialism is. To cut a long story short socialism is the govt and private companies working hand in hand while capitalism doesn't involve govt except taxation. Now when you look at pharmaceutical and social media why can't they be sued? Govt protection. It's your ideas causing all this destruction. Flooding the economy with money being the main one (your fave) and not thru work or production but by handouts which creates "work that americans don't want to do". Free health. Free education. Why you gotta work for anything? We can get cheap shit China and India and let them keep polluting. We can bring in illegal immigrants to do all the unsavory work and of course glutting up the labor market will keep wages down. Maybe one day you will figger it out but my hopes are very dim.
    I don't know a lot but I know a little

    Smh if your life is analogous to that of a dog by those who hold power, meant for obedience, and nothing else, then the reality in which you live needs to be reexamined.

    How the hell is socialism behind big pharma and big tech BUYING OUT the government. Lmaooo the government and big pharma didn't partner up. They BOUGHT OUT the government.

    Take a gander at this 2 minute clip and just look at the contempt for the working class that capitalism has allowed to fester in this country.

    The sad thing is, the wealthy in this country will still have cheerleaders like you all wave pompoms for them as they continue to consolidate every sector in this country, use their money to buy out and censor any dissenting opinion on any and every platform, and completely buy out the government.

    Never forget that the ultimate goal is "you'll own nothing, and you'll love it"

    The ultimate goal for capitalism is “you’ll own nothing, and you’ll love it”? What exactly is the goal of socialism? What do people in socialist countries own?

    I would agree with all of these bad things you have listed and oddly all of them are the purview of the left.

    As for your claim there has been no criticism of them, do you only read your own posts here?
