You really think that people who "donate" to political campaigns don't expect a return on their investments?
I didn't mention donating to campaigns, unless you're referring to collective bargaining leading to politicians giving handouts to employees in exchange for donations and votes
But I don't think you're talking about that, so I don't have any idea what you think I said here, but it seems to me that I didn't say it.
Scott Walker is taking money just like all the others
Yes, he accepts donations, like all politicians do.
... and lot of it from a somewhat famous Las Vegas casino owner. What's up with that?
What's wrong with that? This isn't an argument, it's just an attempt to imply something negative, without actually saying anything that is actually negative.
So funny that you think one group of gluttons is different from another.
I gave specific examples. Do you have any counterexamples? If not, then you're not actually making an argument here, either.
Further, the Republicans' policies are generally much more pro-capitalist (against raising the minimum wage, against collective bargaining with govt employees, and so on).
You have fallen for the Republican trick.
Under capitalism, there would not be any minimum wage, and government employees wouldn't even exist because there would be no such thing as public property or public services that require public employees.
You're correct on the first point, and incorrect on the second point. There would be far fewer government employees, but no, they would still exist.
But I didn't say these are the correct capitalist positions. I said they are "much more pro-capitalist" than the Democrats. Clearly, if there should be no minimum wage under capitalism -- which I agree is clearly true -- then being against its increase is more pro-capitalist than being in favor of its increase. Further, the one person I mentioned -- Scott Walker -- said just recently that he thinks the minimum wage serves no purpose.
The GOP isn't any more pro capitalist than the Dems. They just like a different set of cronies.
Yes, the GOP -- as a whole -- does pay off its cronies. But there are a significant number of prominent Republicans in office who oppose these practices (e.g., Scott Walker). There is not a significant number of Dems who oppose these practices. Further, the Republicans' policies are generally much more pro-capitalist (against raising the minimum wage, against collective bargaining with govt employees, and so on).
According to Swearingen, the likely solution to internet trolls will be a combination of things. The expansion of laws like the one currently on the books in California, which expands what constitutes online harassment, could help put the pressure on harassers. The upcoming Supreme Court case, Elonis v. The United States, looks to test the limits of free speech versus threatening comments on Facebook. "Can a combination of legal action, market pressure, and societal taboo work together to curb harassment?" asks Swearingen. "Too many people do too much online for things to stay the way they are."
