And how will it be paid for? Non-stop printing of money, which apparently has zero consequences.

how's that deficit doing after all the unproductive tax cuts that are only for the upper income and corporations ?

How do you propose to reduce greenhouse gases. I know you studied some Economics. Did you remember externalities ? Should carbon which without question is a leading cause of climate change be allowed to be released without restriction ? If not what do you propose is the best way to reduce it ? I personally like the most free market friendly way which is a Carbon Tax.

Last time I heard him talk on the issue, greenhouse gases are a non issue because brv believes the warming we're going through is just normal climate variance and not in any way caused by man.

It's "not in any way". It's just that VB posted an actual scientific study that showed human involvement was only 0.26%. So while humans produce pollution, it's basically irrelevant. That being said, I'm fully on board using taxes or tax breaks to push people to buy electric cars and not pollute.

The 28-year-old congresswoman from NY said this week that deficits aren't important, so they should not be a big deal to anyone on her side.

never forget that the number 1 terrorist threat in the US is from domestic White Nationalists

U.S. arrests Coast Guard officer who planned mass attack: prosecutors


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. authorities have arrested a U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant who described himself as a white nationalist and amassed a cache of weapons to “murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,” according to court documents.


Christopher Paul Hasson, who is assigned to the Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington and lives in a Maryland suburb, had drawn up a list of possible targets, including House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and MSNBC television host Joe Scarborough, prosecutors said in court documents.


Calling Hasson a “domestic terrorist,” the prosecutors said he was arrested on Friday on weapons and drugs charges.


In a draft email in June 2017, they said, Hasson wrote: “I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth. I think a plague would be most successful but how do I acquire the needed/ Spanish flu, botulism, anthrax not sure yet but will find something.”


A hearing on a motion to detain him pending trial was set for Thursday.


In a statement, the Coast Guard confirmed that an active duty member of the service had been arrested. “Because this is an open investigation, the Coast Guard has no further details at this time,” it said.


The Office of the Federal Public Defender in Maryland did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


The prosecutors said agents found 15 firearms and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition in Hasson’s residence in Silver Spring, Maryland.


They said from 2017, Hasson routinely studied a manifesto by Norwegian far-right extremist Anders Behring Breivik, who in July 2011 killed eight people in downtown Oslo with a car bomb and then shot dead 69 people, many of them teenagers, at a Labour Party camp.

I mean, I think we can all agree that that dude is a piece of crap, but I would probably still put the group that killed 3000 people on 9/11, after failing at a previous bombing try, a little higher than a single dude that was thinking about doing something but didn't.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont
