if you never played video games you wouldn't have run into it either.
Bullshit. It's one of the most well known memes of all time.

We truly are living in two separate percieved realities these days, and one segment of society is getting left behind at an astonishing rate. I legitimately laugh to myself every time one of these guys post some YouTube nonsense like it's some groundbreaking truth that only they have cottened on to, when its just vapid nothingness that feeds whatever unchecked emotional response to their inability to adapt to the modern world they've transmuted into a false reasoning. I am also sad and worried though because I fear there is no way to integrate them.

What would you suggest then, re-education camps? Or something more decisive?

I've always preferred the classic American method of making integration highly appealing. I'd be more than happy to add a new tax that contributed to a fund that provided booze, drugs and morally loose women to the disadvantaged.

AOC is a communist and a stupid one at that. A useful idiot.

Why do you guys insist she doesn't go far enough? Would you like the pay 60-70% + in taxes?
Do you think any businessman is going to willingly pay that and stay in the country?

If so, you're nuts.

what's the point? none of these dopey people like analthor seem to understand the concept of marginal tax rates. some dumbass that i was talking to locally told me "i don't want the government taking .70 of every $1 i make god damn it."

Arny - You wouldn't recognise a communist if one fell out of your Ayn Rand book while you were reading it.

One modus operandi of the tippity-toppys is that they're highly mobile, both financially and physically. 'Tis been this way since Richard Burton relocated to Gstaad in the 1950s and soon after the Brit acting establishment and nascent jet-set followed suit. Perhaps the best thing to come out of the 95% progressive supertax rates was Harrison's Taxman.

Here in Europe we often live with very high taxes on wages. Not unusual to pay 52% and some countries 60%. At one time in The Netherlands it was 62% and higher punitive tax on any overtime. I currently pay 51.75%. My Italian colleagues pay a lot more in stoppages. Shocklingly, so. These are not the tippity-toppys.

The problem with AOC is that her tippity-toppy punitive tax regime has been tried time and again and always the big money relocates and financial vehicles are used to limit exposure. Then when that fails, they start with taxing the middle class to the hilt.

AOC benefits from the far left Overton window of the MSM. They are marketing her as a bright young thing with all the answers to complex problems with sound bites of little substance and dashing of socialist ''caring''. Her Green Deal is the Marxist watermelon. The Greens here are exactly the same. In fact, they came out of revolutionary Marxist parties. They see renewables as a way of controlling the economy and smashing the west.

that's a completely separate issue. and one that needs to be on the agenda. but higher taxes on the rich is a good start. nowhere near the complete elimination of billionaires, but its a start.

Is this like a thing in virginia? Was it a thing in the 80's?

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47148045

Ive never met another person who wore blackface.
I mean, as someone who lived here in the 80's, I don't recall ever seeing it once. It's wild to have two of the guys guilty.

I have seen the odd idiot who thought it was funny to put on a Klan hood for Halloween, but that's it. And Iv'e seen that as far afield as California.
