    Yeah everyone, grow up! Ballooning debt under the democrats is clearly going to be a good thing for you and the future! I mean, it was awful under the other party, but this is clearly 'good' debt.

    I went bankrupt after 6 years' teaching at an Ivy League university (which made record profits in that time and fortified its financial offices). I was among the last people discharged from debt before GOP changed the laws to benefit the wealthy (and direct school loans were not covered). Bankruptcy was created to help entrepeneurs get out from under failures not their fault: GOP made that impossible for average people and used their taxes to bail out criminal banks. As I left court, a bank agent handed me credit card applications: I was a "good risk" because I couldn't file again for 7 years.

    And all we can talk about is race relations when we have bigger issues clearly. Maybe the rich media want us to look over there not overhear. Unaffordable healthcare, poverty, unafordable wages, union busting etc. If we dealt with some of those issues we would all get along better.

    I’ll never understand how governments always give tax cuts to the richest ppl and over tax the lowest earners? Wouldn’t it be a lot smarter to tax the top 10% of earners 2% of their earnings then to tax the lowest earners 20% (just estimating pls don’t fact check just making a point)I’m sure the 2% from rich ppls pockets would likely be a lot less noticeable by the tax payer and the government would be making way more then they would taxing the lowest earners 20% and they (the lowest earners) will feel it a lot harder then the top 10% will. Can someone in economics do the math cuz I do t see how no one sees this the only reason i can think of is they (the government) don’t want to Piss off their friends 🤯🤬

    Disheartening but unsurprising to hear younger Biden parroting the right-wing big lie that the extra economic weight the moderately poor man feels is mostly from a poorer man's hand on his ankle and not a richer man's shoe on his head.

    Patient abuse by nursing assistants is rampant. Years ago, I witnessed a nigerian asst repeatedly hit an old lady for pooping in her diaper. To get welfare-queens off welfare, they push them to become CNA's. And in those programs, no one fails. Nursing homes will not report an abusive CNA because the patient's family could sue. They simply fire the employee.

    That 2005 Bankruptcy Bill was hand written by the credit card agencies themselves and handed off to the 110th Congress. That was when they said screw you to Biblical usury charge laws, and jacked up their late fees to an obscene 29%. I love a country that is so hot on Jesus when it comes to wedding cakes, but when it comes to money, they're just like screw that dirty hippie and His smart ass dad.

    I mean... call me heartless, but if your student loans come from you choosing a degree that you know will not pay you shit after graduating, or simply going to college for the paper, then it is your own fault, that simple. Why not just learn to be an electrician, or plumber, work under someone, then open your own business, you earn way more than the majority of college graduates. It is not excuse if someone goes and studies gender studies, or history for some hundreds of thousands of dollars and then is surprised they can‘t pay it back and being shamed for it.

Why would Bush punish bin Laden??? He was his business partner!! After 9/11 , Bush immediately chartered all Bin Laden living in the USA and flew them all back to Saudi Arabia for their protection??? -- on taxpayers money to boot.

It's cruel it's wicked. Well I'm a kiwi and if you know what we as humans act and doesn't matter what race we are we are taught to be kind and giving and loving and we are equal we share with others. That's God's way and I pray for you all to change. Just very sad what you do to Uighur woman. Disgraceful.
