    He has to re-frame getting ass-fisted by this country as heroic struggle, or he can't keep the gun out of his mouth.

    You're not getting ass fisted. You're suffering from your lack of effort.

    Ayn Rand died on social security.
    She was a liar.
    Her ideology is a grift.
    Stop quoting her.
    And no, you didn't invent it, or alter it enough by adding pot.

    How about, “here’s a dollar to contribute to your coffee fund. By the way, why does a coffee cost more than a dollar now, oh yeah, it’s because of government induced inflation.”

    Ok, yea, that’s probably more accurate.

    This right here. This is why no one can take you seriously. If you’re talking about Biden and the inflation that has ensued over the last 3 years, that’s a result of morons like you that will happily expose their ass to the wealthy while telling the guy next to you in the same position that he needs to quit fucking you.

    The government increasing the money supply doesn’t cause inflation on its own. See 1983-2020. Inflation is caused by a combination of outsized consumer demand, corporate price hikes, and systemic issues like supply chain problems.

    Yeah, but if we if we just sell out Ukraine to Putin, the supply chain will open right up, a golden age will arise, and there'll be no bad repercussions whatever.
    This idea totally didn't come from the RNC.
    I thought it up all by myself.
    I promise!

    Oh, yea. I’ve taken those classes as well. All the bullshit in the world isn’t going to change the fact that prices are set so the wealthy can keep their wealth.

    Running two wars at the same time for twenty years, bailing out car manufacturers and bankers, outspending the Soviet Union in the 80s, nah that didn’t contribute to increasing the money supply, we paid it all off in gold and taxes and didn’t borrow it. The price of a coke is the same it was in 1980. Maybe we should stop spending so much on the military and entitlement programs and stop bailing out bad actors and we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in.

    And why did we do those things? What are two wars accomplishing? The US is a super power and we’re fighting people in caves starving because the wealthy in those countries are sooooo much worse than the wealthy in the US, right? Why bail out bankers and car manufacturers? As a US citizen, I don’t recall voting on that.

    Oh it's hardly been the first this year. I think this is at least the third. The other tangents got split off and merged with preexisting threads, I believe.

    Total straw man. There is probably literal no one who thinks no progress has been made since the 1960s. Just not nearly enough progress. And no, DEI is not "cultural Marxism." If anything, it's quite the opposite. Corporations are increasingly realizing that it's in their self-interest to hire, market, and sell with a diverse workforce and customer base in mind and executing plans to capitalize on that (or to at least pay lip service to it). Critical race theory as oooga-booga as it might sound, is very rarely taught outside of law schools and basically ginned up as a scare tactic as has been admitted by the person who put it front and center.

    That’s where the extra money comes in. The demand curves wouldn’t shift without the extra money. More dollars chasing the same goods and services.

    Those are not quotes, fucktard. And if you could refute a single point, you would do that instead of dancing on a dead person's grave.

    Dishonestly missing the point. Billionaires with massive carbon footprints do not get to lecture anyone else about pollution.

    OR, they could quietly lead by example, living whatever miserable, primitive lifestyle they would impose on the plebs, rather than this grandiose, sanctimonious posturing for ths appearance of moral purity.
