If you actually do want to affect change you need to work for it. You need to find common ground or at least a way to approach people in a way that doesn't immediately alienate them. And FFS you need to encourage people to vote.

For now I'm going with Russian troll and hitting ignore. Send me a PM in the unlikely even that care to convince me otherwise.
Telling poor people to vote for rich people who could give a shit about them is actually a pretty good way to alienate people.

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

nice version; we all hold ourselves back. we all suffer negative thinking, laziness (a very destructive form of narcissism). Someone needs a massive dose of Grant....

real version; Life is not fair. Ain't gonna be any less unfair tomorrow.

the question is what are you going to do about it?

You live in the richest country in the world....

There's trees need cuttin.' Pick up a chain saw stop and start with a hard day's work.....

Showing mercy; watch 15 Grant Cardone videos today and call us in the morning....

free counseling for the criminally lazy Marxist mental midget complainers who dwell among-st us ......

Last video: why WE don't have enough money.

Ideological differences aside, this word salad is not doing you any favors. Please tell me you posted it ironically.

Needs a lot of salad. Life's experiences, work, education.... Grant is the spinach in my Thursday's salad.... and his posts read like a cry for help.

Compared to his marxist garbage, Grant is a lifeboat....

Yeah this is how I feel about Americans who complain about untrained immigrants taking their jobs.

I don't think Americans are complaining about untrained immigrants. I think they are complaining about Illegals that are crossing over our borders and sucking the overall system dry.

Obama offered amnesty to these illegals to get their citizenship in 2014.
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...llegal-immigr/

They had their chance to become an American Citizen.

You cannot have a bunch of undocumented people living in our country. Its not like we can go to other countries without proper documentation to even step foot on their land.

America needs immigrants to become U.S. citizens to work but illegals need to be register in the system incase they break the law or their children enter the education system.

This is very logical.

No, they did not have a chance to become a citizen or even legal. The only thing Obama did was the DACA, which simply gave work permits and stopped deportations to people under a certain age that were brought here as minors. This did not adjust their overall immigration status at all - as can be seen by the current administration's threats at deporting them and letting DACA lapse.

Your source is also garbage which denies climate change and pushed the Seth Rich conspiracy theories.

Correct. Rifleman for a guy who claims to be independent you come off as a Trump Humper with the "Obama offered amnesty to illegals to get their citizenship" stupidity. At no point where these people offered citizenship.

He's probably thinking of the dreamers bill, which offered citizenship to persons brought here as children.

I never said climate change is not happening. I'm saying the proof is questionable if its because of human activity or if its the planet going through its natural cycle with warming and cooling periods.

Overall I think Humans are a parasite for the overall environment which is not good. I just don't know if we are the MAIN cause of Climate change.

Do you see the energy these volcanos release? Wouldn't that cause sometype of warming in there natural environment which would make humans completely irrelevant compared to a massive volcanic eruption.

I never said you did. I said your source that you linked to promotes climate change denial (among other things) and is garbage-tier.

Re: Capitalism vs Not Capitalism

These two videos by Alan Grayson a great Democrat. Grayson gets it.

Alan Grayson: "Which Foreigners Got the Fed's $500,000,000,000?" Bernanke: "I Don't Know."




Heads I win--Tails you lose.

How so? I'm not the one blaming immigrants as though they are the source of all the US's problems like Trump supporters, white supremacists, and bigots. You, unless you're of a Native American background, are descendant of immigrants so maybe you should consider that before blaming immigrants as problems. If you lose your jobs to immigrants, legal or illegal, of whom many can't even speak English fluently, then you need to take a long look at yourself and examine what the fuck you're doing with your life.

How'd illegal immigration work out for the native Americans again?

Hell, thats pretty much verbatim the opinion of the father of capitalism, Adam Smith.

Every political and economic action we take, either as individuals or as a society, is ultimately a matter of trade offs. If we all keep this in mind when debating our ideas, things should (hopefully) be less acrimonious.
Thats the most important thing that MOST people seem to forget. Everything is always a series of trade offs and there never has been a system free of corruption or wholly just. It really just comes down to what trade offs will the most amount of people agree to. Someone said Capitalism works best with a free market and has raised the living standard of the most people of any system but some checks to keep the little guy from getting completely screwed is nice. I think that sums it up.

Wow. This might be the stupidest thing I’ve read on aB, topping everything Rifleman has ever written.

The colonists who committed genocide against the native Americans were not “illegal immigrants.” They were colonists. With guns. What is wrong with you?

Re: Capitalism vs Not Capitalism

Real estate property taxes in the surrounding areas of Boston. There are some people claiming they are going to 20-30% in 1 year based on sale prices.

I’m curious on what the actually formula is based on property taxes?
