Hire on spooky skeletons
Putting baby boomers into cryogenic sleep and awakening them in a steady enough fashion that we always have a few strolling around the ol’ congress
@Russian Moon Base, No need. I heard Dinosaurs once walked the earth 65 million years ago
@Russian Moon Base, that worked out really well in the Underworld movies
Thats where you're wrong, kiddo. You see, time is more wibbly wobbly than that
Skip millennials, go straight to Gen Z
@idontno96, you may not want to do that. Those are the idiots eating tide pods and playing fortnite.
As long as they have no political affiliation. Anyone from the far left or right are the demise of America.
That dumbass bîtch. Can’t believe people actually voted for her
@Richard Cypher, her face just says Dumb
@Richard Cypher, what policy disagreements do you have with her?
@Aegislash, she is a communist. Believes in the abolishment of ICE. And she is Anti-Israel
@Aegislash, pro universal healthcare, Socialist, taxpayer funded abortions, anti 2nd amendment, Socialist, advocate for compelled speech laws, anti capitalism, etc....
That said, I do like the fact that she's all for shaking up the norm and getting some new blood in Congress...I just don't agree with her position.
@WelI Obviously, she’s a full fledged communist. All corporations should be owned by the workers and all that Jazz. Not sure what the incentive would be to work or start a business if you don’t actually get anything
@Richard Cypher, judging by your statement i can ascertain two things: you don’t really know what she stands for and you don’t know the difference between socialism and communism.
ICE was created after 9/11 to promote homeland security which ironically it has not done (plus there are already established institutions to do this). Its primary role is not to deport people, if you are worried at people crossing the border illegally then look at the border patrol, however, most people arrive legally and overstay visas.
Socialism is the greatest deterrent to a skewed distribution of wealth. Some socialist programs are medicare, social security, parks, roads, police forces, firefighters, k-12 public schools and any other thing paid with tax dollars. If you think socialism is bad you must think these are too. Isreal isnt absent of any guilt for the middle east you are wrong. war has been being waged for centuries nothing we do will stop it. I could go on but i wont. Hopefully you can learn.
@WelI Obviously, i dont understand how someone can be against universal healthcare. It will cost less to businesses and individuals. Its a win win for everyone. Hopefully people will spend more money to stimulate the economy and business’ will free up cash flow, hopefully paying people more but i doubt it.
@Implicit88, I guess I have to be more specific. She(and people like her) want the abolishment of ICE without any plan for fixing immigration; except of course they want to just welcome in everyone, which is stupid. Socialism is stupid. Yes their are some socialist programs in place, everyone knows this. But she seeks the abolishment of capitalism in favor of a fully socialist system, which is again stupid. Tax dollars for abortions(including illegal immigrant abortions) is also stupid and not what I support. But it’s what her and people on her side want. And if you think Israel is solely responsible for unrest in the Middle East or that they are solely responsible for fixing it, then that is also stupid.
And she wants the abolishment of capitalism, abolishment of corporations and the wealthy, and working class to control all the wealth. As with most socialist systems this just becomes communism. People always vote for whoever promises free stuff with no way of paying for it
1. To quote the late great Mr Lahey: You pay a metric shjt-ton in taxes to pay for it
2. Compared to privatized care you wait waaaay too long for even the most basic of care... Not to mention anything even remotely specialized
3. You pay the same amount in taxes whether you're reasonably healthy, or a full on barge that stuffs their cheeseburger locker full of quarter pounders and 2 packs of cigarettes a day.
Universal healthcare couldn't be further from a "win win"
@Richard Cypher, i have a a follow up question, if you dont support abortion, or choice, do you support paying for that child until its 18 since the parents dont want the child or should we leave that child to starve, irrespective of what, if anything, should happen to the parents. As for isreal i am saying all those countries share responsibility. I dont think she or anyone wants the complete abolishment of capitalism, capitalism needs to be regulated though. Capitalism needs competition to function for the people, currently there no, or little competition, for things everyday people use.
@WelI Obviously, 1. Negotiating rates for a bigger population will yield better rates in healthcare. The entire usa is the biggest population you can reach leading to the biggest cost savings.
2. Wait times would remain the same or even lessen, more people would initially use healthcare so until more facilities are built there will be a spike. However, it is self correcting, someone will meet the demand.
3. Your point is true that the tax rate for everyone would be the same, but then why should i have to pay for the police force i never use or fire department ive never used? Same with car insurance. You pool money together for the greater good and guess what if you get cancer one day you wont go bankrupt.
Now leave that aside, we have the ability to create a better healthcare system if we stop fighting and work together. I doubt any regular person would say the current healthcare system is good or even average. We can add in mandatory yearly checks, have premiums for smokers, people
@WelI Obviously, who are morbidly obese. Really any life choice that negatively impacts can be regulated to an extent. However, help should also be available to get these people back on track to being healthy as that will be cheaper for everyone overall. Also the extra money that isnt used should be saved and only used for this program, never donated or used by any other form of government (think of ssi).
@Implicit88, she is part of the DSA which expressly believes in the abolishment of capitalism.
So for abortions, I am against using abortions as a form of contraception. That is morally wrong and it’s complete crap if someone wants the tax payers to pay for that. So people who shouldn’t or are otherwise not in a good position to have children, shouldn’t get pregnant. Birth control is not expensive and condoms are not expensive. Abstinence is also an option if traditional contraceptives are not to someone’s liking. There’s also adoption. (Though to be fair the adoption process needs a major overhaul)
@Richard Cypher, the dsa does believe in that, however, the amount of socialism a lot of people want to actually employ varies depending on who, thats affiliates with the dsa, you talk to.
I also believe abortions are morally wrong, however, whats worse bringing a child into this world that will be tortured his whole childhood or aborting that child? I don’t think insurance should cover abortions, only contraceptives. Also, any type of later term abortion should remain illegal as it is now. The problem is people will get pregnant just as people do drugs and just as people steal.
@Implicit88, Well universal healthcare costs more for everyone as it skyrockets taxes and creates a stagnant subpar industry that does not promote innovation nor does it allow multiple opinions or preferential treatment, and considering the size of our country and rate of illness (around 21% for us Americans) it would surely be much worse than our current standard.
@Implicit88, That's where you're wrong kiddo, 1. universal healthcare would be a government subsidised industry, there is no competition in government subsidised industries as the government will always pay the lowest price, the problem with that is that either the industry will just keep becoming more expensive for no reason (colleges) or they will become crappier due to lack of funds and no oversight (DMV or USPS).
2. That's a lie, it's reported that wait times are so long in hospitals under universal healthcare that admitted patients are placed in hallways and rarely receive private rooms.
3. Because those are emergency services that apply universally to all citizens and would unfairly impact different areas of the country if they were privatized, such as emergency departments. But if you do the same for hospitals they will run into the issues pointed out before. Also our healthcare system is one of the best in the world, other than money and insurance issues our healthcare
@Implicit88, technology is extremely advanced and our recovery rates are also extremely good, so what's so wrong with our healthcare?
@ Seductive Cheeto, colleges did not go up because they are government run. Or else you would see this trend since long time ago. They went up cause universities borrowed too much and most likely pressure to increase rates so people would take out loans.
2.i went to europe before where they have universal healthcare because i got very sick. In 3 hours i was seen, had blood work, received results, and an ultrasound. All for $300. When i was there, there was no lines like you speak of. Oh and i didnt use my usa insurance.
3. Hospitals are emergency services. Health is something that universally impacts everyone. A healthier population is more efficient. Better hospitals are in richer cities, just like they usually have better schools and other things.
@ Seductive Cheeto, our life expectancy is ranked a little over 40th in the world by country. We live on average 4 years less than the 1st country. Stand alone statistics like a better recovery rate doesnt mean much. We are 6th in cancer. We spend almost double per capita than other nations on healthcare but we dont have double the care or results to show for it. Obviously something needs to be done.
Funny how their idea of a Millenial is a socialist autocrat lol
Depends but let’s start with term limits
Yeah, but not that one. #socialism
DAT cat though
Zombie representatives. We have the technology!
No taxation without representation. Right Americans?
@BulbousBiscuit, We also don't want authoritarian morons ruling over our lives so I'd call electing millenials a wash at best.
@PoliticalOtters, I dont understand politics but I understand your position
@BulbousBiscuit, Otter Politics tends to be a little complex for humans to get all at once.
@PoliticalOtters, makes sense. Biscuit politics are remarkably simple
