As for the impacts of raising minimum wage? Tough s**t, if your business relies on paying less than a living wage it doesn't have a viable business model and shouldn't be subsidized by underpaying the people who keep it running. I mean, OK, if you're specifically trying to put businesses out of bus...

On a practical level, this is doomed to fail: - There are too many demands , which are disconnected from anything that employers can actually deliver. Strikes are most useful for achieving concessions in negotiations, but in this situation, there is nothing employers could do to placate their striki...

English accents are very complicated - I definitely don't understand people with very thick Yorkshire, Geordie, Brummie, Scouse, East Anglian or West Country accents, and I have trouble with the London equivalent of AAVE (which these days is more common than Cockney). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

President Biden may have made the right decision to withdraw all US soldiers out of Afghanistan, but it is still a shocking sight to see on the news. 8O Seems to be a double standard as usual. When the US troops were pulled from Iraq and the Kurds were left to fend for themselves Trump was lauded b...

They're very correct. Both Hillary and Biden are absolutely the worst of the worst when it comes to war. If we don't stop these endless conflicts in the ME Well Biden just pulled out of Afghanistan with all due haste. Not sure how this supports your characterization of him as a war monger. He's dro...

[...] Taking the US presence out of Afghanistan is the equivalent of defunding your local police force. Again, Mr. Biden is the president of the United States of America , not the United States of Afghanistan; and unless someone sneaked Afghanistan in as our 51st state, America is no more responsib...

I'll give Biden credit for a good decision. We should have been out of there over a decade ago. I'll give him credit for actually going ahead with the pull out, but I'll blame the hell out of him for the shoddy execution. No argument there. The bottom line is those in power don't care about the peo...

I'll give Biden credit for a good decision. We should have been out of there over a decade ago. Perhaps you haven’t been following the news, but over a thousand Afghans have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced by the Taliban.  How would you feel if Joe Biden did nothing to stop an armed...

I think there’s some pretty significant differences between the two. Biden was elected as a Senator at 29 and has a laundry list of achievements in the Senate. He knew what he was getting into when he ran for President Long list of achievements? Such as the crime bill he spent his entire campaign a...

You’ve repeatedly admitted that you don’t even know the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans, which is fundamental to the politics of your own country. I think you misunderstand him. He sees no difference between those parties because he believes both to be shills for Israel, howeve...

... and tell them to only listen to Glenn Greenwald :lol: I don't know about the rest of all that, but listening to Glenn Greenwald is excellent advice, he's practically the only honest journalist working these days. I've followed him since the W era, it's hilarious that liberals think he's changed...

To say swing voters and those who don't vote along party lines are irrelevant shows a fundamental misunderstanding of American presidential election process.

Correct. Good job nobody has said that.
