She knows

Divert, deflect, distract. That is third way dems (ie Replublican) standard mode of operation. These issues with Democratic right wingers have just as much chance of resolution as congress comming together for a progressive agenda.

Offshoring

Offshoring

Customer: "I would like to buy your product"
Owner: "That will be 10 dollars."
Customer: "Sounds Good."

Owner: "Will you build me this product?"
Employee: "Sure, I just need to be paid enough to feed and house my family, and a little to save for the future."
Owner: "Sounds good."

Employee delivers product to owner, owner delivers to customer and collects 10 dollars.

Owner: "Here is your dollar."
Employee: "Thank you."

Owner thinks, "I need more money, what can I do? I can't raise my prices or my customer will go elsewhere. I know, I'll offshore my labour."

The difference between myself and a billionaire. (50,000 years)

Ya, 1 billion dollars. But what is it really?

I see homeless going through the dumpsters regularly in my neighborhood. I always think "how close am I to being there?" Currently I estimate about 6 months without any income and I would be there. Today I thought, "how long for a billionaire?" At the same expense rate, a billionaire could go for 50,000 years of no income before they were homeless.

Crazy.

Edit - was off by a zero. It would take 50,000 years not 5,000 for the billionaire to go homeless.

I see right wing arguments on both sides

of the poly no poly argument. They are loving this. Troll fest.

I believe we should allow any relationship between consenting, non-related, human, adult persons that they desire.
