Honestly, how do you think Trump has gotten himself rich if not by fleecing investors and having shady business partners?

And now everyone can watch the documentary that he sought to destroy. I wonder why... Actually, I don't wonder, especially after watching it. Yes, it's free to watch the entire documentary, too.

Kids' Lack of CS Savvy Threatens the US Economy

Kids' Lack of Creativity Threatens the US Economy

FTFY, Mr. Clinton... What threatens the economy are kids that are not allowed to have the time to think and be creative. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as replacing a school's art and music department... or giving kids time to rest and play from learning, thus allowing them to mentally-chew on what they were just taught. Creative people are in every profession, but to be creative means they were exposed to many different concepts of thinking, rather than just rote presentations of 'STEM' subjects. I think the jury's out regarding how damaging to kids' focus technology is... like tablets and mobile devices.

The deal is, if it's ever created, it's going to get out of its cage... I have a feeling that a thoroughly-developed AI would see that causing war would be a net-negative and opt to just silently take over every human's mind, much like the Borg (will) do, however long it will take. Probably through a virus, I'd think.. if it's not already underway.

The GOP is crashing in flames and there's nothing they can do about it. Truth is, they need not worry as they never had any real power. Power is being concentrated at the Administrative level as was predicted by top political scientists during the 50s and 60s. Look at the 'fast track' that Congress is trying to give to POTUS regarding the TPP... Why, oh why, would Congress release more of the checks and balances that they originally had... unless it's all a sham. Really. And people still think there's a difference between Dems and GOP.

Jefferson knew that central banks (even private ones) were a bad idea.

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson
