My Dad basically gave up his life for his business. He has had no life for the past twenty years because he's devoted it entirely to his job. I'm talking work days longer than twelve hours. There's no damn way he'd do that for the money earned at a standard 9-5 job.

And look at what he spawned, god what a terrible waste of his time and money

Yeah, but on the plus side, his horrible son can rent a family size apartment and drive an Infiniti. It could be worse. :P

That's a new low even for you in terms of lameness of humour and general unpleasantness. Give it a rest.

35% of Americans have a positive view of socialism. Makes sense. From my experience about a third of people are stupid, evil, or both.

Incidentally, Trump's approval rating is 34%. Looks like a solid third of Americans are going to continue to support him no matter what.

We can see from your reply that he could have done a lot worse.

Now Corbyn reckons 16 year olds should get 10 quid an hour. Doesn't matter what jobs they're doing, or how badly, or whether small businesses can  actually afford to pay them. I say they should get it  :rolleyes:

Classical liberals can do what they want. The most popular politician in the United States (by a huge margin) is Bernie Sanders, and Jeremy Corbyn looks set to become prime minister of the UK within months (if not days).

Classical liberals are pro-capitalist. The people want socialism.

What drugs are you on and where can I get some?

The progressive left are the most racist and unfriendly people in the world.

A white Christian straight male is ridiculed and thrashed by the left.

Liberals have to throw out the progressive left to stay relevant. If every one who is deemed a non-minority is left in the dust who will be left for the progressives.

Donald Trump beat a shoe-in democrat that's a wake up call if I ever seen one.

If you think Trump defeated someone too leftist, too much of a betrayal of real liberalism, you might be the most politically illiterate person in the world

A year before his wife lost, Bill Clinton had a premonition of how things could go very wrong. He revealed his foreboding—perhaps fittingly—at fund-raising events. He would hint at what he considered his wife’s glaring vulnerability: the roiling discontent of the white working class. The travails of the group—44 percent of eligible voters—preoccupied him. He could recite one grim statistic after another. Even at this early date in the campaign, he knew that their cultural alienation might place them beyond the reach of a Democrat.

This is a grown adult who made this statement, I'm assuming.

Have people become so insulated from reality and so consumed by solipsism that folks (educated or not) can actually believe this?

I said it about Bush, and I'll say it about Trump-there will be worse.

As a Canadian I've always thought, "oh that's just an American thing. It doesn't happen here." Oh, well.

Clinton was the most centrist candidate and thus the one with whom I most agreed.

Most liberals don't smash things. Most aren't violent.

Certainly not a third.

Sad to see the violence at the brown pride rally.

Remember though, that's just a minority.
