i just don't get this stance tho bc fossil fuels and their power grab is one of the problems. why is it better to have politicians beholden to fossil fuels then to give some resources to potential solutions.

At least you're not arguing the science. When people can at least accept the science, I'm sure the conversation will prob give some tips toward solutions. Some people prob have started that discussion.

of course it is under. The current contract is only for about 3.2 billion and like Dyz said it's for 2 planes. The planes also are sold stock for like 370 million. you sure it wasn't from Trump saying $4B and making it sound like one plane. I love how Trump has completely obliterated the idea of facts.

i could be completely wrong but it seems pretty basic to me: -Housing crashes, ton's of middle, low income and some even slightly better off people, businesses are in crisis. As it rebounds, it is the wealthy and big businesses that were able to survive the crisis and actually able to buy up the property that crashed. ton's of middle, lower class have to go on welfare, have to use food stamps, lose jobs bc the economy stalls. Plan is put in place to stop the bleeding (maybe a good or bad plan, prob def not a perfect plan, prob should have subsidized actual homeowners and not just ...

the failing NY Times did a photo piece on Phillipines. These are stories of the shootouts and the terrific work Duterte is doing and the guy who our Pres Elect wants to come visit NYC. So Impressive!

only slightly our problem if any of these tactics seep into Trump's administration. I hope they don't and obv don't think it would happen on same scale. I also do at least empathize with the people a little bit and don't think it is the way to conduct a war on drugs. I'd never condone the guy's methods.

feel free to dispute any of the facts in the article. “I don’t care about human rights… If I order the killing of someone, you cannot arrest me. I have immunity,” he told a crowd Friday. “After the end of my term, I’ll be 77. Where will you place me'” this is a nice quote from the guy Trump is a fan of.

not saying our present system is the way to do it. but a limited gov't to uphold rule of law with most everything else existing in a free market is prob a better balance. i don't really care to have a drawn out thing over it. signing a contract that is super long just to walk into a movie theater is ridiculous tho and i'd rather we all just sign one social contract that holds over all social interactions and most business ones too or something. (you prob don't want that either and were just having a drawn out discussion with Res over what anarchy actually means) there will just be tons of ...

spending on a new air force one is not aburd spending. maybe when the costs are looked at there is some excessive spending in the contract, but then just fix that.

i think both can be efficient or inefficient. i think greed, abuse and corruption would be as likely in private market system and people would take advantage of others through contracts. i haven't thought about it a ton, but i think eventually there would be some large private company that would gain control over most of the contracts and would be in charge of enforcing a lot of them and have a hand in managing any disputes. they also would probably have contracts that would then make it very difficult for other agencies to try to challenge them and compete with them.

this system would be awful to live under and be so inefficient. why not just elect citizens to an agency to over see developing a list of contracts between private citizens. there would also be the same greed, abuse, corruption, and anything else that exists in any of today's institutions and the poor and working class would be at an even bigger disadvantage. it's pretty sick that you think that the immediate punishment for drug dealers should be execution w/o a trial and that you think it's great that our President Elect seems to support that as well. if even a little of that sentiment ...

You didn't bold the part where I said I crossed them over. It was a mistake, I never thought you blamed Obama for housing. Obv you wouldn't bc he wasn't even president. It was a mistake, it happens in normal discussion.

i was crossing over the auto and housing thing. didn't think you blamed Obama for housing crisis, since that wouldn't make any sense. he has bad taste in jeans and has been about average as president for what i thought he may be. not really to happy or unhappy with him overall as president. think he takes a ton of unnecessary grief tho.

i admit i don't know ton about it, but the economy has gained jobs. i think you are a bit of the narrative that all he did is bad. i don't know, i'll look into it more later. yes, if you bought your house long time ago, losing the equity and then gaining it back won't mean a bunch for you. a lot of people were given easy access (both due to predatory lending and ignorance) to buy at 70, it then went to 80 and fell to 40 and they lost it because they couldn't ride out the tide. to put so much blame on Obama and none on banks or anything seems like a bit of repeating a narrative as well.

i don't agree with it. i would be more for investing in new tech that in normal free market prob can't compete and get off the ground against the established industry leaders. that could potentially be handled by free market as well but i feel like it would have a tough hill to climb. btw if this was 1895, i'd have been for gov't helping out Ford or something with his new car tech, or any equivalent time and tech.

so his decision to help the auto industry had no direct effect on jobs' he could have just let the free market play itself out and maybe that would have been the right decision in long run, but his and Bush's decision to lend to auto certainly stopped the bleeding and saved jobs no' if you want, i'll give you that Obama had nothing to do with any job growth in Texas. i wasn't referring to specifically Texas. also odd that you are okay with tons of people losing a bunch of equity in their homes because you are ok with the tax break.

it was massive deregulation and carelessness by banks that caused 14 trillion of value in housing market to disappear basically overnight, i'd imagine that would be tough to recover from and would result in some spending. i do wish more of bailout went to people and not banks.

I don't know the answer but is it possible they were the ones who benefitted from the system and you were talking to the ones who didn't. Maybe not, just curious. I remember talking to a guy from Ukraine right after they overthrew leader and he said how it was interesting bc so many people didn't realize that it then meant they had to work for stuff they wanted. The freedom meant not getting some of the stuff they were used to.
