commie faggots literally retarded
Epic bantz bro you really showed those libtards xDD
Владимир Владимирович Путин
being this salty
not an augment…oh an i enjoy you massive asshurt
Pick one, faggot. He supports the TPP and he hasn't really done much for the working class. How is he socialist? Fucking Obamacare?
We live in an almost unbridled Plutocracy in the US. Our system of government barely allows us a minimum wage. Don't be such a dumbass
Yay, Putie Pie, the champion of freedom and justice.
Our system of government barely allows us a minimum wage
Read some books, mate. Socialism sucks but you won't know why until you read Hayek or Hoppe.
Our system of government barely allows us a minimum wage
this might be the dumbest sentence I've read all week
Nice meme. You should try thinking harder
In other words, the minimum wage could easily be abolished; in fact, if Trump is elected, I would bet on it. What is so difficult to understand about this?
Elements of socialism are the reason we are not like India. You know, pesky things conservatives hate like the minimum wage? Totally a socialist idea. But it is an inconvenience to the weathiest few in their conquest to horde more wealth than can be spent in 1000 lifetimes, so conservatives will always hate it.
has obviously never tried living on $7.50 an hour
You won't be able to afford rent on a bungalow unless you live in hicksville, square state.
buh… workers don't deserve a liveable wage if they're not skilled
This is what many anons actually believe. And believe me, there's no sense in wasting your time trying to convince people who literally suffer from autism otherwise.
India was a straight-up command economy until the early 90s
set minimum wage to n dollars an hour
people whose labor is worth less than n dollars an hour are now unemployable
great idea, guys
Ukrainians are niggers. Why does he want niggers to be a part of his country/empire/whatever?
Anytime I prefer Putin to Obongo.
100% failure rate…..commies are retarded
Read "The Road to Serfdom" and try again
Putin is the alpha male Russia needed and one the USA will never elect.
Not user, but he clearly stated *elements* of socialism, which is probably not totally inaccurate.
read "The Road to Serfdom"
"There is no reason why, in a society which has reached the general level of wealth, the first kind of security should not be guaranteed to all without endangering general freedom; that is: some minimum of food, shelter and clothing, sufficient to preserve health. Nor is there any reason why the state should not help to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance in providing for those common hazards of life against which few can make adequate provision" – Hayek.
Sounds like YOU need to read it as well.
Concerning economics, Hayek was obviously more erudite than any of us; however, I see him as a typical Freedom-obsessed, Liberty-shill who had a rather underdeveloped notion of what it means to be "free". Many libertarians don't seem to acknowledge the fact that when you have an unmitigated """Free""" Market system, you end up simply favoring corporate rule over government control – there needs to be a balance between capitalism and socialism. This has always been the case, but I think it's even more essential in an immensely complex age of technology where there are more avenues for individuals to exploit the system.
History has shown that when you remove regulations and drastically lower taxes, the wealth gap grows wider and wider, until a collapse in inevitable. In fact, if you look at a simple graph chart, illustrating income inequality and marginal tax rates in the US, you'll see an obvious correlation between tax rates and income equality/inequality – generally speaking, the higher the taxes, the lower the income inequality. And while I'm certainly not reducing these matters to taxes, I believe a tax plan in which the INSANELY WEALTHY are contributing a more balanced share, would lessen the absurd disparity of wealth (which is unsustainable).
wages have been virtually flat since 1979, yet worker productivity has gone up
top 1% has seen a 256% increase in their paychecks, while the bottom 90% has seen about a 17% increase
top 10% in 1982, after Reaganomics, was earning 80% of all new wealth, and today the top ONE% earns almost every new dollar.
wages are not even close to being adjusted for inflation, and workers either have to pinch pennies or collect from the government (tax payers) because some of the wealthiest corporations in the world won't pay them a liveable wage.
The wealthy have NEVER BEEN WEALTHIER in the history of the United States, and yet most anons have the audacity to act as if the working class is too self-entitled at the mere mention of fair wages/regulations. Who's "cucked" exactly? Sanders supporters? Seems to me its the Trump/corporate shills who will never find themselves even remotely close to the Tax Brackets that would cause the top 10% to pay a bit more (poor babbies may have less money to stash in offshore bank accounts).
Anyway, sorry for the rant – I don't even know why I bothered with this.
100% failure rate…..the facts don't lie unlike commie retards
I'm not a communist, nor do I endorse any other absolute economic ideology – I would have thought that'd be obvious from my previous post.
And yes, every single Communist system has failed miserably, because it's based on unrealistic ideals. It's intensely triggering when ideologues put forth arguments to the tune of "well if people just followed this book, word for word, then shit would be AMAZING"; nevertheless, as trite as this may sound, it's not communism that is corrupt and wrongheaded, it's people.
fair enough…..i despise both communist and libertarians for the same reason
any fourth grade history student
implying they know anything about socialism aside from "russia did it and blew up" and catchphrases such as "communism has never worked"
sums up what faggots on Holla Forums know about history
c-c-c-omunism would work if we did it right, all those other cases of communism don't count
Putin a Holla Forums tard…..nigger sit down and shut up
flamboyant faggots are worthless degenerates
u-u-u-u-unless they support the same narcissistic, petulant, money-grubbing, power-hungry, "good brain"-having, dishonest billionaire as I support.
I would literally pay to watch this "man" tortured to death
I'm fuckin serious
What the absolute FUCK is that??
he's the organizer of the BLM protest in Dallas, an probably the one that assisted as a spotter for the shooter, but thats just a rumor.
spotter for the shooter
that's just a rumor
my feelings will make the numbers that represent actual things magically work out!
I've worked plenty of minimum wage jobs and everyone I ever worked with who went on about how they "deserve" to be paid more and how it would definitely somehow be fine were lazy faggots.
If you really think the businesses have so much cash to throw around, start your own and pay your lazy, unskilled workers $20 an hour, see how long you stay in business.
bu-but if it were minimum wage no one could beat my price!
Yes, and then everything would be more fucking expensive, and everyone who had more money from higher minimum wage would be paying more for everything - including rent - on a linear scale. Fumbling around with the numbers like a retard WILL NOT magically create extra supply or diminish demand. Goods and services will not appear out of thin air. Money is not a mystical magic force, it's an abstraction of value, labor, and goods, and inflation is not a new and mysterious concept. All of your bleeding-heart bullshit amounts to is demanding that "the system" chase its own tail and accomplish fucking nothing.
You're one of those assholes who just fuckin embraces it, huh?
Many people who work these jobs are veterans who can't find work, single mothers, the elderly, students who will eventually face a mountain of debt, and various other disenfranchised individuals… and yes, some of them are lazy faggots who will never amount to anything because they're not willing to exert anything more than minimum effort.
Do I think that a cashier at Walmart should be living in the lap of luxury? No, but I think if you're working full time, you shouldnt be living in abject poverty, nor should you have to rely on government assistance to survive.
Fumbling around with the numbers like a retard WILL NOT magically create extra supply or diminish demand
I don't even know what the hell you're talking about. If you're basically shilling Supply Side economics, you're either a corporate shill or an absolute dipshit or both.
It's a mistake to equate someone's worth with the amount of wealth they're able to accumulate – you shouldn't need to think too long and hard to come up with examples of why that would be retarded. And so long as Wage Slaves are an essential part of the workforce and economy, it would be nice to see them treated as such, rather than lazy, good-for-nothing "takers".
I'm not an economist, and I dont pretend to have the answers to our rather large problem with income inequality, or what the minimum wage should be set at; however, common sense dictates that when consummerism makes up about 70% of our economy, if people actually have the money to buy the shit that company's are selling without racking up mountains of debt, things just might have a way of balancing out. And perhaps the top earners might have to make a few less million/billion.
inflation is not a new and mysterious concept
That's correct, user. Very good. And so why is it that since 1979, wages have been virtually flat, yet worker productivity has gone way up? Why is it that the wealthy are making more money than they ever have in the history of the fucking world, yet nothing seems to "trickle down"? I'm sure you'll find a way to spin a good tale about "muh free market" and make some exuses for the unbelievable disparity of wealth, à la Atlas Shrugged . But hopefully someday you'll learn that not everyone who argues for fair wages and workers rights is a bleeding-heart SJW… and that maybe you've just been brainwashed into being a corporate apologist by whatever libertardian/republican media that controls what few brain cells you have to work with.
Putin never said that and Churchill never said this
prove me wrong
“Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.” —Perth, Scotland, 28 May 1948, in Churchill, Europe Unite: Speeches 1947 & 1948 (London: Cassell, 1950), 347.
thanks. this was Churchill in opposition, not government.
and the Putin quote?
Don't worry about it.
Quotes are just a way to take some shit some one said and apply it to every thing as a way to make your self feel intelligent.
People who put quotes on their kikebook are typically the dumbest ass holes around.
well it's a stupid thing to say and if it wasn't attributable to churchill, would be very obscure. it's part of a campaign speech.
