    A 130% property tax increase would be needed to fix police/fire pension fund

    Isn't this GREAT news? Time to start paying your Public "Servants" YOUR FAIR SHARE

    Think of it like this, if you don't, maybe you get a visit by 'servants' from one (or both) of those departments? Sound good to you? That's great. Now get in there and start making your Farmers their Milk and Meat.

    That's Dallas, Texas - an American center of rightwing libertarian governance, home of a ruling class of bona fide Ayn Rand loving capitalist entrepreneurs that talks just like you and then - you should appreciate this - acts on that ideology. Dallas: about as far as you can get in America from all that evil socialism you don't like (Houston could give them a run for it).

    Every value, principle, historical take, and view of the world you praise on this forum is part and parcel of the governing ideology of Dallas, Texas.

    Federal Reserve blames drugged up Americans for why they're not working. Too busy getting high and enjoying life unemployed.

    LOL

    Isn't it wondering living in a Centrally Planned Progressive economy? Isn't it fantastic that the Socialists who run the Government's Central Bank didn't go to prison for bailing out the 0.1% (whom, incidentally, are richer now than at any time in human history) but are STILL in charge of the economy.

    Here's your Public Servants... the ones that bailed out the criminal bankers, they blame YOU for their mess. LOL See, when the Buffoons arent' creating a massive Housing or Stock Bubble, or bailing out their Criminal Banker buddies, or funding Phony Wars, well well, then they're the arm-chair "Experts" confusing correlation with causation (per usual).

    News Flash! Being unemployed in a totally regulatory-captured market, where rent-seeking, environmental laws, licencing scams, tax scams and minimum wage laws and millions of illegal economic migrants lock lower IQ Americans completely out of the labor markets - and yes, they feel pretty unhappy about not finding a jerb, and they start doing drugs. #NotAllDrugAbusers

    Most were abused to a degree as children. Many shoveled into State-run or State-licensed Day Supervision Centers where they graduated to poorly run Government School only to be barfed into said regulatory market barely able to read and write. I'd say that's a form of State enforced child abuse. I'm positive future Citizens in our Great Republic will look back in horror and disgust.

    Take a look at the society around you Joe? What do you think? Pretty decent? Pretty shit? Is it working for you? I wonder, were you down there waving your Hillary for POTUS placard? Because, it seems to me, the only bullshit around here was the notion Hillary was going to become POTUS. I OTOH started a Donald The Progressive thread in August 2015. Seems to me, my perception of what is going on in society was closer to what IS going on in society.

    For example, a big fat loaf of a pile of bullshit, is our currency: The USD. Another fat floater would be our Never Ending Phony Wars on 'Terrorism'. Then there's that big brown poo smear that was bailing out the banking elites.

    War is Peace
    Freedom is Slavery
    ...And Diversity is our Strength

    I'm still waiting for all those "Green Shoots" to spout up. Or, I know, how about "The Market" has "Confidence". You, know, because "The Market" has a brain and it experiences "Confidence".... hahahaha. Yes, plenty of bullshit to go around. Don't think you're not munching on some right this minute

    Luckily, there's plenty of planet to burn away. So, on the show. Let's see that Economic Miracle that's always right around the corner.

    Assuming they'd stop 'abusing' the Rx opiates.

    When deregulated, private, for-profit, capitalist investment bankers are the closest thing you have to socialism in your central planning, maybe it's time to diversify a little.

    Firstly, the entire finance industry is forced to use USD. A Centrally Planned, State-backed fiat currency. That's the first thing. The entire 'market' is the exact opposite of free. In fact, it IS Progressive Socialism. Our Central Bank was given to us by the LEADER of the Progressive Movement who led the Progressive Party. Let me guess? No true Scotsmen live in Scotland.

    Secondly, the finance industry is, after medicine, the MOST regulated market in the world. This is an objective fact. You can actually count the total number of regulations and, if you do so, you'll find ONLY medicine (another totally State-ruined market) had more.

    Thirdly, I've made this clear to you, how many times? These are not free-markets, so I am not going to refer to what they make as "Profit" (which in a free society is an act of virtue) but instead as SPOILS. So, in reality, these parasites are semi-privately owned for-spoils fiat debt-based banksters. Let's see if one day "The People" don't decide to elect a Demagogue who instructs the IRS to look back through all the previous lodgings of retired Banksters and financial scammers and pass a 99.99% tax on everything they own - which is 'redistributed' to "The" People. I'd probably fall on the floor laughing

    ALL of which is required for your Progressive Socialist paradise to happen. See, without the implicit (and explicit) use of State violence, there is NO PROGRESSIVE Socialism. Democratic or otherwise.

    We've been down this road with you hundreds, if not thousands, of times. It has all been explained to you many times; yet you continue to post this crap.

    You're babbling again Joe.

    Here, I'll make it simple:

    1. We use a fiat currency.
    2. We have a Central Bank.
    3. The Central Bank sells debt in fiat currency and the IRS forces the next generation to repay in their 'income' (which for most Americans is labor) tax.
    4. Government Regulates just about everything.
    5. Government Taxes anything it can get away with - or alternatively, uses 'tax incentive' to manipulate behavior.

    Anyway, let's see what the Millennials do if Trump completely fails. That'll be interesting. I mean, who are they going to tax to pay for all the free-shit they expect, you know, like healthcare and university and basic income, our never-ending phony wars etc... Well, it sure as shit isn't going to be them. And the 'rich' don't have enough money. That leave the middle class Boomer.

    I'm going to put them squarely on the LEFT. If they were on the RIGHT then they'd be opposed to the Dalai Lama because he was a heretic spreading a false religion. As in, they'd be opposed to his religious teachings. And he is opposed for this from time to time (though, he is allowed to speak). The LEFT, OTOH, they are opposed to his moral teachings.

    Now, maybe they're right? He probably does have some asinine beliefs? To bad we probably won't hear of them.

    See, this is the problem with the LEFT. They want to censor speech itself. What they do not want to do, is to go into the market-place of ideas, and compete with better arguments. No, punch the Dalai Lama in the f-ing face and burn his car. Then break a few Starbucks windows for good measure. You know, because "Capitalism" and "Profit".

    LOL

    History suggests, when a far-right dictator ends up in charge (and thanks to Progressive Socialism / Central Banking - all of the power structures needed, are paid for and in place for one to be magically 'elected') well, they do kill a lot of people - but no where near as many as a far-left dictator kills. The piles of dead under the right, are literally dwarfed by the mountains of dead under the left.

    Just something to bare in mind .......as Americans get ready to confiscate your wealth 'for the Good of the Roads' because blah blah blah. Oh, did I say 'confiscate', deary me. I meant to say 'Tax'. Okay, that's better. Tax 99.99% of your wealth. For the Good of Society. Which is, only fair after all, you sold debt on your kids and grandkids and their kids. Time to pay up with your retirement and any assets you happened to think you actually owned. No no no, you borrowed, the State owns anything it wants. All we need to do is pull the magic left-right lever (either way, funny enough).
