2. The right has nothing to do with solving poverty. It never has. We do. Remember LBJ and 20% cut.

3. Serving the Corporation Is The Ultimate Human Good

Is it just me or does anyone notice that when applying for a job your intelligence is measured by the TRICKLE DOWN IDENTITY INDEX. Yes I am supposed to say:

"I saw your annual report and I was impressed! I would like to join and make a contribution....."

The PRIESTS of the CORPORATE COLLECTIVE are the Human Resources folks. I RESENT that my IQ is to be measured by how much I am willing to subvert MY SELF INTEREST to the good of the STOCK HOLDER.


TRICKLE DOWN IDENTITY!

Yes forget about health benefits, salary, paid vacations, job security, and OH MY GOD a PENSION! No my function in life is to SERVE THE CORPORATION!

I lie awake at night worrying that the TRUST FUND BRATS many have to get a job. I would rather not have a pension than to cause them DIVIDEND INSECURITY! Makes you wonder why these folks hate people on WELFARE. Hmmm

4. Yes

I really don't understand why it is even a question.

Ronald Reagan was simply the worst President in our history.

6. China grows from infrastructure, Reagonomics blocks the US from that

China will become the biggest economy because they have a functioning government. They can invest in business infrastructure both domestically and along trade routes used to transport Chinese goods. Belt and road. In the US Reagan persuaded people that the government is not our friend so the US can not compete. Reagan is one culprit allowing Chinese leaders to make China great again while the US is not making much progress.

7. Every Trump voter should be made to watch this video 100 times.

It would take at least 100 times to just start undoing the brainwashing.

Many of us - even as economic amateurs - began to see this happening even during Nixon's time, with their campaign to turn America against their own government, demonize taxation, and to divide America in any way possible. They know a divided public is a powerless public.

Some have named it the "Two Santa Clauses" process and it's still happening to this day and on steroids......

Excellent summary as usual, Mr. Hartmann. Thanks for posting this video, YMBL.....

9. K&R

Great video! I was especially alarmed by the last bit regarding the connection between minimum wage and suicide. For some reason that really hit home for me and made me realize what a cruel, selfish country we really are.

11. Without even looking at Hartmann's vid, I'd say so.

A banana republic with nukes headed by a crass, grudge-holding, white supremacist strongman who is so much of a Hitler wannabe that he's actually practiced gestures and facial expressions from Hitler's speeches.

If we're not careful, we are gonna have another fucking Holocaust, and that isn't a joke. I don't say it lightly.

We've got to get Trump OUT of office.
