Maybe states should stop sabotaging their own economies. We are talking about a 7% increase in mortality, or something that will kill 0.1% of the population. You don't shutdown a state over that. This is according to the government's own projections.

When this is all over people are not going to be happy with their governors simply not being reelected. We are going to have mass poverty because of their actions.

If we use AI as a central intelligence to craft policy to minimize the spread of coronavirus, it will have to form policies that harm humans in some dimension. What if it then figured out that if there are no humans there will be no coronavirus, or at least if there were fewer. Then it directed policies designed to kill humans that we believed were reasonable, like lock-in orders, that would starve us economically and lead to the deaths needed to stop corona virus spread.

Overblown is a matter of context. In terms of government action, overblown. In terms of not wanting to get it and not spread it to other people, not overblown.

I'm ashamed of people these days. They will be supportive of a government shutting down an entire city indefinitely, but can't manage to wear a cheap mask to not get other people sick, and hang out in public parks with hundreds of people in counties with a significant number of cases.

The ratio of preferred government action to preferred self action is why we can't have real freedom in this country.

You mean pork that they are arguing over the details for. Let it all fail. I was a waiter. I was more impacted. I found another job with applying to one other place. My coworkers successfully applied for unemployment.

Where does the money come from? The fed. Where do they get the purchasing power to offer to business / usually banks? Us. In theory that purchasing power will trickle down to us, but will require work on our part to get it. This is called theft + slavery.

When we printed a lot of money in the 1970s worker productivity went down permanently. We've had to have two worker households ever sense. What will be next? Children? And it didn't fix the problem in the 1970s. We had stagflation. We will have stagflation here because businesses can't operate. This will be 1970s squared and we will be slaves for life, and have no real aid to our current situation.

AT&T CEO Pay Rose to $32 Million in 2019 While He Cut 20,000 Jobs | Ars Technica by DeWhoDeWho in business

[–]x0x7 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

He probably had his pay contingent on the company surviving a foreseen bumpy road, and by cutting 20,000 he saved the rest, and received the other part of his pay that was contingent.

That and AT&T has been acquiring other old-tech companies, that probably have needed clean up for a while and old programs that weren't profitable anymore. That's why they needed to be sold. Examples are Direct-tv and Time Warner (holds AOL).

Companies die. We hope that they die gracefully rather than in a blaze of 100,000 layoffs with no severance. Demonizing whoever takes the role of scaling down a business is silly. Plus then what of capitalists that make jobs when a company is new and expanding? Are you going to praise them?

Have some public good you want to pursue? Lets weigh the benefits to the cost to target a scale that is responsible. Except in their mind the state being in debt to the point of dysfunction is a good thing.

You can't have a society if a large number of people are literally trying to break everything.

He has the will of his people. He's pretty popular there. The US is afraid of losing him as part of NATO because we need to prevent Russian ships hitting open ocean. Europe was scared of him over immigration, and also wanted to not hurt NATO stability. Russia would like to not piss off Turkey under the idea that maybe it could switch sides and doesn't want to permanently ruin the hope of a warm Water port. Saudi Arabia is worried about oil line prospects to Europe that would disappear if they pissed of Turkey. Israel, same thing except with Golan heights. Syria and Iran genuinely hate Turkey and have no problem showing it.

They treat Turkey nicer than they should because Turkey is important, not because they bribed him and want to protect someone they think is in their pocket but simultaneously doesn't play along with anyone. What all these countries need to learn is that someone is your ally not because they are important but because they are nice to you and are important. Turkey needs a kick to the curb by everyone.

It cuts both ways. This is saying that Bernie cultists won't vote in the general if they don't get their way, and therefore loose the election.

But if the majority of dem voters don't want a communist, then why shouldn't they act the same as Bernie supporters?

This is basically saying the minority should win because they are stubborn, but why shouldn't the majority be equally stubborn?

Let's face it, Bernie sucks. He can't even get 50% of the democrat vote because he's to radical. How would he get over 50% of the general? At least the others have the temporary excuse that the main part of the democratic party has their vote split.

Just remember that real conservatives are against everything on the bottom.

Founders wanted us out of foreign wars. There is nothing lassie fair about giving bailouts to companies that should have failed. Their is nothing conservative about the corruption of giving certain companies continuous paybacks. Conservatives are suspicious of military boondoggles.

Yet people want to paint conservatives as the people who support all of these things. That is the difference between a republican and a conservative. A conservative is a student of certain traditional American ideological principles. Republicans are party cultists. Conservatives would like the party to return to its ideological roots, at which point it does none of these things.
