I've been posting about democrats unwittingly espousing

...the libertarian dream economy for weeks!!! These Democrats are too transfixed by their smartphones that they don't understand, even after you explain it too them, that the tech driven gig/sharing economy is driving wages down, replacing full-time jobs with benefits with these glamorized "be your own boss" 1099 jobs. Uber is wreaking havoc on the cab industry at the same time disgruntled Uber drivers are suing Uber nationwide over its business model. Under its current business model, Uber avoids paying into social security and has gamed the tax system by hiding their income in shell companies in the Netherlands and Bahamas.

Airbnb is impacting both housing and smaller hotel industry. In San Francisco, affordable housing is getting squeezed out because landlords can make more money on Airbnbs. While Airbnbs employ no one, they are taking business from smaller hotels that do employ full-time workers. Further, in many cases, Airbnb is another source of income for people with 2 homes. My friends post pictures of the Airbnb they stayed at and they are gorgeous. It's just another redistribution of income from the middle and lower class to the upper class.

Venture capitalists Nick Hanauer made a fortune off his investment in Amazon, but he says "We don't create jobs. Amazon didn't create jobs, it destroyed 1 million jobs."

The very power elite Libertaian Democrats Jeff Bezos, Hollywood agent mogul Ari Emanuel and his brother, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Microsoft fuel the gig/sharing economy and they are taking liberal democrats with them.

Anyone with half a brain would know that

...destabilizing the Middle East first, then coming back for seconds a decade latter to destabilize Libya are the 2 biggest foreign affairs blunders in US history. Pappy Bush warned removing Saddam was a really, really bad idea!

How Hillary is winning the foreign affairs debate is mind boggling. She made the 2 worst decisions in US history!

All shits and giggles for Hillary.

Amplified modifies terror and media manipulation

...modifies people who are feeling terrorized by what they are seeing in the media.

Do you think this is an isolated incident - white students peacefully supporting their black brothers and sisters - or is this an isolated incident? Have you seen these demonstrations covered by the media or have you only seen stories about white students, frat boys that are terrorizing black students?


Did you know that some white teammates expressed their support for their black brothers? Maybe you're in a bubble...

You know, the media likes to amplify what will

...most terrify others, but whites join with blacks. It's a sad commentary if you've been manipulated to believe otherwise.

I wouldn't stop there

...white youth are finally feeling devalued. They're realizing they're no longer entitled to the American Dream. They're realizing they have something in common with blacks - no future.

Yesterday I likened it to the Tea Party in that

...the universities built their empire on the shoulders of athletes who know understand they could bring down the house of cards in one week.

It will be interesting to see what Northwestern football players do. Last year they tried to form a union but were denied.

Granddaddy of all ironies: they are Calvinists

As much as they pillory the French, they owe their entire Christian ideology to a Frenchman, Jehan Cauvin.

Obama's recovery = win for trickle down

Reich and Stiglitz discuss the bailout. "They really believed in trickle down economics." When presented with "bailout Main Street (Stiglitz)" or "bailout bankers *without conditions* (Rubin & banksters), Obama chose banksters over his instincts - bailout Main Street.

Now, Obama is King of Trickle Down Economics and Democrats are the loudest cheerleaders of Trickle Down. I've been saying this for a while.

For an even longer period, I've said, in so many words, DU lost its integrity. If an R had been at the helm, DU would not be praising a trickle down recovery.

I started a thread last week about how disgusted I am with liberal talk radio. Not at all surprised it got no traction, hereIt's all praise for Obama's this, that, and the other. Liberal talk radio lost its objectivity, too.

Job Creators ----> THE Creators. We're neither.

Billionaire capitalist Nick Hanauer has a compelling story to tell. Unfortunately, it's not a political story and M$M has a disincentive to bring attention to it.

Liberal Media is killing me

I start my day with Bill Press at 5am. I drive all day and am fortunate enough to listen to WCPT. That's Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Wayne Besen, and Norman Goldman. I might catch Rachel on MSNBC. But it doesn't matter. 24/7 echo chamber. Same programming from 5am to 9pm CT. Despite his flaws, Ed was alone talking about jobs, jobs, jobs. When polled, Jobs happen to be America's #1 issue.

Why are jobs in their blind spot? Don't any of them follow Robert Reich? I try to stay on top of economic trends like the job killing, tax evading "air" "sharing" Uber/Amazon gig economy but the liberal media isn't to be found. It's going to happen: Jeff Bezos has a huge stake in Uber. Those two will merge. Then they'll gobble up Airbnb and the other air companies. Nick Hanauer says Amazon didn't create jobs, it killed 1 million jobs. In 2014, already valued at $41 billion, Uber had 550 Full Time employees. Where is the liberal media? Stephanie Miller and Thom Hartmann of all people talk favorably about Uber regularly. There's a complete disconnect. Miller doesn't have the chops but Hartmann hasn't done his homework. At least Goldman and Besen blast the gig economy.

Liberal media tried so hard to be the opposite of Fox News. It should have higher goals.
