  • What is the most effective remedy for poverty?

    Best answer: Tax cuts. Nothing causes more poverty than a government intent on taxing and regulating the people who are producing. Taxes are the origin of poverty. Taxes are the parents of poverty. If you cut taxes enough, it will cost pennies to get a loaf of bread rather than dollars. If you cut taxes enough, rent will... show more
    Best answer: Tax cuts. Nothing causes more poverty than a government intent on taxing and regulating the people who are producing. Taxes are the origin of poverty. Taxes are the parents of poverty. If you cut taxes enough, it will cost pennies to get a loaf of bread rather than dollars. If you cut taxes enough, rent will decrease, salaries will rise, and business will flourish and create more and more and more jobs. CAPITALISM is the remedy for poverty.

  • Why did the United States drug their own citizens in the 1960's?

    The 1960's was a very disturbing time period to say the least... There's a good chance you already know this but the CIA did do secret drug experiments on people. Agents would do things like put LSD into people's drinks at a bar and observe the results and stuff like that. Project MKUltra lasted 14... show more
    The 1960's was a very disturbing time period to say the least... There's a good chance you already know this but the CIA did do secret drug experiments on people. Agents would do things like put LSD into people's drinks at a bar and observe the results and stuff like that. Project MKUltra lasted 14 years too before people found out. But what was far more disturbing is how LSD "came out of nowhere" around that time. LSD could only be made in a lab, and it's not like anyone except for chemists with the right knowledge and equipment could make it. But millions of tablets were made and distributed across America. If it wasn't the U.S. government who caused this there's no other real explanation. This was the same period hippies and liberalism came about. It's almost like the government wanted to create this ideology. Over 90 percent of people were against desegregation in the early 50's, then a massive project went to change public opinion. Why did the U.S. do all of this?

    Best answer: When you're right, you're right.

    A couple of caveats here: Firstly, "the economy" and the stock markets are not the same thing. Stocks are jumping by leaps and bounds, but this isn't going to help struggling families pay their bills. Rent and tuition continue to spike, and wages continue to stagnate. Some good news is better than none, but I can't pretend that the stock market surge has solved any day-to-day issues in this country.

    Secondly, the stock surge is largely due to the tax deal passed by Republicans. This gave buckets of money to corporations and the wealthy. The corporations are using much of this projected windfall to buy back shares of their own stock. This is a clever trick. When a company buys and holds a significant portion of their shares, the supply of shares available becomes more scarce, which drives prices upward. Investors see the stock gaining value, and demand for the stock rises. With increased demand and decreased availability, the stocks will soar.

    The company that bought its own shares back (or a private investor which is doing the same thing) then gradually sells of shares at the higher market price. This is done slowly, so that the market is not flooded with available shares, and the price remains artificially high. Eventually, companies and large investors may dump a large quantity of stock into the market. This greatly increases the supply, and is also generally viewed by investors as a sign of trouble. Prices plunge, and other investors dump their stocks to avoid further losses. Then, the original corporation or major investor buys their shares and others at the low market price and repeats the cycle. This is known as a wash trade.

    In reality, we're all getting screwed. Market manipulation aside, giving $1.5T to corporations and investors from the tax coffers will of course cause stocks to rise. Think about how high they might get if we gave rich people ALL the money! That really doesn't help people like you and I, though, does it? Your 401k probably looks pretty good right now, but YOU'RE paying for that. The GOP is giving your tax dollars to corporations, so it's really not a surprise those corporations have more money now.

  • Should all news coming out of CNN now be considered fake news?

    When I go to Google News, I now laugh at their headlines. It's like being entertained in the grocery line by reading the cover of The National Enquirer.

  • Would this be considered sexual assault?

    Today, I went to the movies with a guy. I’m 16, he’s 18. (It’s legal in my state to date anyone if any age if you’re 16 and up). He’s a freshman in college and i’m a sophomore in high school.

    Today, I went to the movies with a guy. I’m 16, he’s 18. (It’s legal in my state to date anyone if any age if you’re 16 and up). He’s a freshman in college and i’m a sophomore in high school. Anyways, we were in the theaters. He kept playfully asking me to kiss him and I kept saying no (not playfully). He also kept making sexual comments about my butt and kept squeezing my thigh and calling me thick. He asked me to kiss him once more, and I said “no I don’t feel comforable kissing you yet” quite loudlt. We were in the theater and so people looked at us. He got offended by this and so he forcefully grabbed the back of my head and put his hand up my inner thigh (really far up, like 1cm more and he’d be touching my .....”. He then tried to force me to kiss him. I then pulled away and told him I had to go to the bathroom, and he let me go. I ran to the parking lot, called my parents, told them what happened, and drove home. Leaving him there clueless (I did send him a text at a red light telling him it wasn’t going to work out because I felt he was moving too fast). I keep getting flashbacks almost to him grabbing my head & inner thigh like that and I guess i’m wanting to know.. Am I being dramatic or was this actually sexual assault? Thank you..

  • If Oprah decides to run for President, will she have to answer for when she said "Old white people just need to die"?

    Best answer: Everyone has said things that can someday come back to haunt them. I'm not sure how Oprah would respond to this. At least Trump never said that he wanted anyone to DIE!
