You misunderstood, he was mourning that fact.
Same guy, backup account.
They have been peddling this crap for three decades
- you don't know shit, what actually has been peddled for 4 decades is massive inflation that allowed massive welfare state growth, with different levels of welfare, where the herd is used to justify power grab, because the mob will always vote itself more theft and redistribution from its proceeds, while some very well connected on top will also get the welfare in terms of gov't contracts and such.
Poor are not able to climb out of poverty
- definitely. Poor are the herd, they are a necessity for the gov't, you don't reduce poverty with gov't, you grow poverty with gov't and you use poverty to take over all powers and steal from the yet productive people.
infrastructure is crumbling
- definitely, that's because it was NEVER sustainable. It was a gov't welfare project it wasn't there because businesses put it there for productive reasons, it was built with stolen money and it falls apart once the well dries out and the well dried out and the businesses moved on and there is no need for any of this infrastructure in a unproductive society. Infrastructure shouldn't be in the hands of gov't, but hey, they bought you lock stock and barrel with the gov't projects and 'new society' crap.
our trade imbalance is getting wider
- definitely. 500 Billion USD / year, that's your negative productivity for decades now. It's the result of growth of gov't power, growth of inequality built with gov't power, massive of inflation - money printing that gov't is running. Sure, the Federal reserve is a private bank, but it doesn't matter, hasn't mattered since 1917, when the Congress gave it authority to monetise US Treasury debt and that's where the bubbles start, all of them, from 1921 depression to 1925-1929, the 1930s depression, the 1950-1970 bubble in gov't spending, the 1971 default on the dollar, the 1970 stagflation, the 1980s bubble, the 1990s bubble, the 2000s bubble and the last one that is still growing, the bond and USD bubble. When that one bursts.... well, it shall be interesting times. At least the people that are still productive will finally be able to consume the fruits of their own labour rather than subsidising USA consumption with their work.
colossal failure of Reganomics
- in that it was not actually free market. Free market ended in USA in 1911.
trickle down economics
- also known as economics. That's what is happening in the productive parts of the world, except that USA exported inflation is still preventing their producers from being able to consume the fruits of their labour, still, even so, as an example Chinese have pulled 350Million people out of poverty over 30 years, more than entire Europe and USA in a 100.
The money paid by the consumers are what is paying for the cost of production
- wrong. Money doesn't exist until it is produced, money is a claim on future production and fake demand fuelled by inflation does not create production.
Consumers have to get the money from somewhere, and it's actually businesses that make money - that's a really wonderful American phrase "to make money". It actually means something, but you wouldn't know.
profit of the investors and wages of the employees
- consumers don't have anything to give until they produce, you clearly don't understand that this is not a 'chicken and an egg' question. Before you can eat, you have to grow something.
If there is a profit to be made, somebody will.
- I know, I run my business to generate profits. I wouldn't run it in USA though, because that's not a place to generate profits in a legitimate market anymore.
We cut the taxes, we encouraged investment, all those traitors who took all the money invested in Bangladesh and Bangkok
- you are ignorant. Taxes cannot be cut if there is no cut in spending. If you cut tax rates but keep spending or spend more, you are deferring taxes + interest. Anybody with 2 brain cells to rub together recognises it for what it is - eventual slavery to the system and they obviously move. You are not fit to make long term economic decisions obviously and being patriotic by allowing fruits of your labour (your life) to be stolen by the mob via the State violence is an idiotic idea. Why would anybody be patriotic to a bunch of thieves exactly?
They say with straight face, we will invest where the wages are low, pollution controls are non existent, where the profits will be high. We should tell them, go live there, or pay taxes here.
- once the US bond market crashes and the Fed starts printing even more to buy all that debt, the inflation will come back to the USA in huge volumes. There will be no more consumption of foreign made goods. Good luck to your theories then, when you have nothing to consume at all because nobody will sell it to you. You'll have to start producing again, you'll learn what real economies are built upon again and you'll quickly figure out that economic growth and gov't power are not actually compatible.
If we tax the rich, we can make sure the money is spent inside USA creating more jobs.
- stolen money given to gov't does not create anything productive, but good luck with that. The only thing you are achieving with this (and any new laws are taxes, same with ACA for example) is less business. You'll see what I mean soon enough.
If we give them tax cuts, they will invest elsewhere.
- it's not actually your money to give. Money, fruits of labour, belong to people who actually earned it, people are not supposed to be your slaves contrary to you (quite popular) misconception.
The demands of the rich are endless.
- there should be one law for everybody, and this law needs to respect private property rights and not allow gov't to steal from people. USA used to have this law, it was called the Constitution. It doesn't care about it anymore, hasn't in decades, the result is obvious if you want to see it.
Precisely, which is why your desire for "erase names from blah blah" is irrelevant. I don't believe in erasing anything from history, by the way, you fucking collectivist Orwellian pig monster, but trust me, to me Mandela and his communism is the stuff that should be erased from LIFE, but not from history.
Ding dong the communist witch is dead. Communist witch is dead, the deader the better. The only good collectivist is a dead collectivist.
So that's the opposite view from yours, obviously.
Of-course there is no need to run a police state in order to INSTITUTE government controlled 'health care', government controlled 'education programs', government 'welfare' mechanisms.
However instituting those things is what gives the government power and the backing of the mob to become a police state and at that point we shouldn't be talking about INTENTS we should be talking about CAPABILITIES, because regardless of any intents, once the government has a capability, it will use it to maximize income streams of the people closer connected to the government and to achieve it running a police state becomes an inevitable imperative.
Just copy and paste my past comments as responses in the future threads.
In fact why bother making any comments ever again by any of the supposed sides in any of the future threads at all?
Here is a list of our questions, here is a list of your answers and here it is again in reverse.
This is excellent, we are now automating everything, from insightful while irrelevant in the bigger schema of things comments to your average trololo style threads.
Oh, beyond that, I should have read the stupid story linked from TFS.
The idiot author is making a number of straw arguments, one of the arguments is about Friedrich Hayek and that statement is just as ridiculous as the rest of his ideas.
Friedrich Hayek would not have seen BTC as real money, but he would have approved of people's desire to try different competing currencies, so he would have been on the side of people trying different things, including BTCs, but he could not see BTCs as real money, for Hayek real money had to have intrinsic value, which the author of that nonsense article doesn't understand.
That kind of thinking will only ensure that there are 0 females in software development companies.
Same person, backup account.
SS, Medicare, Medicaid, FHA, EPA, FDIC, IRS, Fed, dep't of energy, dep't of education, dep't of interior, dep't of commerce, dep't of labour, so called 'defence' department, dep't of agriculture. Let's just start with those, every single one a failure, every single one a huge waste of resources and inevitably leading towards destruction of the USA economy in the long run, and we are at the end of that long run.
read and weep, you are only 100% wrong and you just bathe in your ignorance. The ONLY reason AT&T was a monopoly for all this time was because gov't gave it that power and destroyed 3000 of its competitors.
If you have 1% of integrity left, you'll reply with an apology for being an ignorant fuck while being so sure of yourself.
There is a summary? Let me put it this way, there are more than 2 letters in the header of this story, even that is too much. What they should do is just use pictures of kittens, then the story will grab attention. Whatever the story is, add kittens and remove the nonsense about the story and it becomes the perfect story.
Here is how this

Yes, and these people are all around us.
Here is a comment I left on the Bill Gates story, follow the thread to see who a tiny portion of these folks are.
The reality of-course is that they are the cardboard cutouts from Rand's stories, except they are not even 2 dimensional, they only one 1 dimension, it's called hate, jealousy, greed to other people's productivity.
By approaching the design and implementation of the system from POV of a designer/developer, I was able to offer a number of solutions to the retail chain in question, which they could not even imagine. So right now this chain has software that does things in a way that is not normally done by other retail management solutions because it wasn't a manager of the chain that proposed the technical solutions to his problems, it was a designer / developer that offered a different, more efficient approach to handling business and the retail agreed and is benefiting from it, it's a competitive advantage they have against others.
When designing systems for my clients I first listen to what they are trying to convey but then I always take a trip to their locations, departments, stores, whatever it is and I just ask to be allowed to be there, to see what they are doing. Some operations are quite intricate, so I have to sit in with a user and have him/her guide me through the processes, sometimes it's enough just to observe what the operations are like to understand problems.
For example when I started building my retail chain management systems, my background in telecom / banking / insurance / manufacturing / utilities did NOT prepare me for what I observed in retail, in fact it was counter-intuitive and seemed wrong on its face. When an execute order comes to a bank, everything is done in the proper sequence, the transactionality is ensured, etc. In retail that's not the case at all. An order arrives to a store, the boxes can be checked for the products quickly and then pushed to the floor, where the items are placed on the shelves immediately and then they can be sold right away.... but the order may not be in the system yet, so this means the products are NOT in the electronic system and they can already be sold.
This means you have to be able to handle negative amounts of products, as an example, all the way from the cash registers to the accounting systems and your systems have to be able to deal with all of these weird situations, weird from POV of somebody who is used to strict transactionality in terms of processes.
Yes, you have to observe people working IRL or you'll have a bunch of preconceived notions that may be totally wrong and your systems won't handle them at all.
