    The problem with Liberalism is you eventually run out of other people's money to spend.

    Imagine waiting in line all day to get a dozen eggs?

    No nation ever taxed themselves into prosperity.

    Just the opposite.

    UMayNeverKnow saidI just paid $3.50 for five dozen eggs.

    ¡Viva capitalismo!


    That's a great price! Lowest I've seen is 99 cents a dozen at Trader Joe's.

    Do you buy direct from the farmer?

    No, I bought from a chain supermarket. I couldn't believe it. I think there are a lot of chickens in this state.


    Eggs are super cheap in AZ also--

    Venezuela is not a liberal country, as we use the term in the US or elsewhere. It is socialist, with a partially controlled economy. And increasingly a fascist dictatorship.

    To draw any comparisons between the US and our own liberal politicians is false and deceitful. But about what we've come to expect from the political agitator and disinformation specialist S2Ki here.

    The problem with US Conservatism is that the poor and the middle class are the ones who eventually run out of their own money to spend, money that gets channeled to the 1%.

    This channeling has been happening regardless of who is in power.
    Do you believe this situation has improved in the last eight years?
    I would not see conservatism as the issue.

    After the 2008 market collapse, redistribution to the 1% has if anything accelerated.

    Largely, the situation has been aggravated by export of jobs offshore.
    The middle class has historically been supported by construction and manufacturing but much of this work is gone.
    There is only one presidential candidate who sees this as a problem.

    You must mean Hillary then. She wants to get more work diversity. Like in West Virginia where coal is as relevant as whale blubber.

    Dozens of U.S. coal companies have filed for bankruptcy protection, including Arch Coal, the parent company of the mine where Bo Copley worked. Although the U.S. Supreme Court has put the Obama Administration's power plant rules on hold temporarily, many utilities continue to shift away from coal for both economic and environmental reasons. Coal mining employment dropped below 75,000 in 2014, with Appalachian mines seeing the steepest declines.

    Hillary Clinton suggests those jobs are not coming back. "The way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs," she said Monday. Rather than reversing Obama's climate agenda, as Republicans have promised to do, Clinton wants to help coal country adapt. The $30 billion plan she released last fall calls for increased job training, small-business development, and infrastructure investment, especially in Appalachia. The plan also seeks to safeguard miners' healthcare and pensions. "I have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time," Clinton said this week.

    trump's "plan" is to water down laws and regulations........to make a former energy relevant again.Whale Blubber politics.

    Here's the full quote;
    "“Ah, well, I vote Democratic most of the time,” Barkley said. “But the democrats don’t have a candidate I really like. Neither one of the parties is doing anything for poor people. They’re both full of it. Black people have been voting for Democrats their whole life, and they’re still poor. Republicans don’t do anything for poor people, either. So, I vote for the person I like the most and right now, it’s the governor of Ohio.”

    Other recent Barkley quotes:

    "Barkley said Republicans do “a really good job of making black folks, poor white folks and Hispanics not like each other. All they ever talk about is immigration. The notion that illegal immigrants are ruining our country and taking jobs that we actually want is total bullshit.”

    Barkley said he would absolutely vote for Clinton over Donald Trump,

    The Dems need and encourage a permanent underclass that is convinced that only the Dems can help them.

    The Dems never actually need to deliver. If they do it is accidental. They just need to make a showing of good intentions.
