This is America. We have billions to throw around especially if you’re a well-connected business so paying doesn’t create any burden. That’s what FEMA is for.


Not to mention the fact that all the baths, meals, medical care, tents, running water and sewage systems, legal aid and education will stimulate the economy.

Maybe what I am beginning to understand is that some of our middle-class support globalism ...


The only one who's obsessed with globalism is you.

Phat writes:

I lean more towards Nationalism than I do Globalism...


Yes, your Nazi sympathies are apparent.

Phat writes:

... because I feel that as I age, my class interests will take a back seat to global programs.


And so they should.

Phat writes:

And the only reason I liked Trump diplomacy in any way was that he thought American interests were getting taken advantage of by foreign interests who benefited from us more than we did from them.


Remember that Trump was the idiot who slapped tariffs on foreign products, making them more expensive for you. How is that looking after your interests?

Phat writes:

Otherwise, I'm glad to be rid of Trump....but more like him will come if the small businessmen and uneducated retirees get passed over in favor of globalism.


Yes, I have no doubt that you will cut your own throat to spite the boogeyman of "globalism".

Phat writes:

Am I again ignorant of the BIG PICTURE?


Yes. The big picture is that you have a lot more to gain by looking outward than by locking yourself up in your own little world.

Phat writes:

Someone enlighten me.


You've had a lot of light shone on you but you're careful not to let any of it sink in.

Libertarians writes:

Libertarians advocate for voluntary exchange, where people are free to make their own choices about what to do with their lives, their time, their bodies, their livelihood, and their dollars.

If Americans want to give money to the government for one reason or another, they should be free to do so. If Americans prefer to spend their money on other things, then they should be free to do that also.

Did you have a straight face when you quoted that?

Do Libertarians use the roads that other people's taxes paid for? Do Libertarians use the schools that other people's taxes paid for? Do Libertarians use the water and sewage systems that other people's taxes paid for? Are Libertarians protected by the police and armed forces that other people's taxes paid for?

Of all the #$%ing god-damned stupid things that you've posted, I'm nominating that one for the #$%ing god-damned stupidest.

For God's sake, THINK for once.
