    Lazs posted one, Sluggo. But since you seem to be too lazy to even look up one post... I'll quote the relevant paragraph from his link:


    What has set this rise apart is that it’s the first time during an economic recovery that began in mid-2009 that the bottom half of earners are benefiting more than the top half — in fact, about twice as much, according to calculations by Goldman Sachs. The trend began in 2018 and has continued into this year, and could be signaling a stronger economy than many experts think.

    I just received a check for $91.94 because an ARCO gas station charged me $.35 for using a debit card once. I hate their gas. I've only ever stopped there when there were absolutely no other options. That's occurred maybe twice in the last 30 years. This is fucking hilarious.

    And while that's a true statement... it's also kinda irrelevant. We're talking about totally different constituencies. Identity politics works very well for Republicunts because they have a homogenous base of authoritarian white people. The more you isolate and pander to a homogenous voting bloc... the more cohesively they vote together. Republicunts have EVERY reason to love identity politics.

    Democrats tend to be much more authoritarian than Republicans... as much as Democrats like to scream otherwise.…-more-likely-possess-psy/

    Most of the issues in South America from directly for US interferance.

    Bullshit. Not saying the US hasn't been opportunistic, but the shitholes have always been shitholes. Brazil's inner cities don't need any help from the US. Argentina's coos are not because of the US. Venezuella's collapse is not because of the US. Hell... none of South nor Central America's issues are because of the US. I'd venture most (especially in central) are the result of the 60's communist push. Even that, tho, was more shithole opportunistic.

    I've seen 10 minutes of pearl harbor while at best buy. They were running the attack scenes on the big screen TVs. Another guy was standing there too and I looked at him and asked, "what movie is this?" Then we saw Ben Afleck and said, "Ah."

    Sure, razer. They probably just haven't looked at anything else. You obviously speak for them as they have done exactly what you suggest.

    Someone is telling a side of the story. If she's a master manipulator, she seems to be pretty shitty at it since someone claims she's being ineffective. I know what manipulation is. I know what sitting at home on your birthday while your wife is out until the early AM means. This is not complicated. This is not about someone being a master manipulator, it is about someone manipulating putty.

    All this sappy advice is for shit as the person telling the tale is obviously looking for sympathy at any cost. I'd venture that's how someone gets into this situation in the first place.

    You're still talking about the sex you did or didn't get on you b-day. Just saying. Something is broken. Her telling you what she was doing on your b-day is one thing. You not understanding that her being gone is an issue in the first place is another. I find this whole story unbelievable as it's being told. A relationship does not go on like this for 27 years without some level of cooperation.

    Every time you mention another b-day she didn't attend while she was having sex with someone else makes you look more and more odd. Hell, the fact that you talk about sex every time you mention her makes you look odd. Something is broken.

    These stories don't make her look like more of a bitch. They make you look clueless. Every new story drives that home even more. Nearest I can tell, you've had 50 birthdays in the last 27 years of marriage... and she wasn't home for a single one of them... and if she was you expected sex as some kind of present. Something is broken.

    If it wasn't a surprise, it wasn't all her. I can't really see how her admitting it is the final straw. There's more broken then than you think.

    Politics are politics. When you're in such a sensitive position as ambassador, you have to bite the bullet when your e-mails are leaked... especially if they are critical of the head of the country you are supposed to be interfacing with. He got outed. He's out. Raising a stink about it is simply trying to publicize someone critical of the president as much as possible... while blaming the president for it.

    The story is already losing steam as they actually begin to investigate it. Dems are not looking very good here... especially in NY. How can a DA argue that they argued with a judge about lowering his sex offender rating because they misunderstood the law? You go from corrupt to incompetent.

    It's called quid pro quo, dipshit.

    I don't think you know how grand juries work.

    Having been on a grand jury, I think you should also take the time to learn about how human trafficking laws have developed over the last 10 years. So much is different now. But please, stay uninformed and draw conclusions based on ignorance. It suits you.
