The Prime Minister of Canada’s father was also Prime Minister. I am absolutely certain that better qualifications exist than “my dad did that”. Would you go to a surgeon to have open heart surgery if his credentials were “my dad did that”?
Why do we allow people like George W. Bush or the Justin Trudeau to take on the most important jobs just because their dad did it? This severely harms everyone.
What is it that makes the American economy great? It’s free trade, and free movement between all the states in our country.
Why do people find it so hard to apply the same principle they so fundamentally believe in for American states to nation states?
People are much more gullible to conspiracy theories then you would hope.
Phone Carriers know who the scammers are, but don’t care because they make money on them. We need to hold phone Carriers financially responsible for allowing scam calls to go through. If a number has been reported as a scam call, they are then liable.
This cheesy ad from Brown University School of Professional Studies makes it sound like they will merge their students into Skynet and make them the corporate villains from pretty much every action movie ever.
New South Park episodes are blow your mind good. Season 22, episodes 8 and 9.
Reducing medical regulations would allow new businesses that cared for your welfare to grow and compete with ancient businesses that are callous to your interests. https://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2018/12/why-do-hospitals-hate-sleep-so-much/
Right now there are widespread media attacks on high profile Americans. These attacks are backed by Russia and China and other anti-American interests. The attacks on Google, Facebook, and Amazon are especially important to notice. The attacks are meant to prey upon human feelings such as envy, and not necessarily to shut these companies down, but to distract attention away from murderous dictators elsewhere.
Bitcoin is not used in commerce anywhere really, and has massively overhyped valuations. Most digital coins are a scam, but even this big boy is one too. Watch out.
Energy (oil, nuclear, etc) is what drives the entire world economy. It doesn’t matter what kind of technology you have if you don’t have the energy to push things ahead. Energy multiplied by technology equals Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Energy without technology leads to massive waste.
We need clean energy or we will torch our planet. Better technology means less energy needs to be used for the same GDP.
Nuclear provides massive clean energy, but oil companies and oil states have banded together to create an very effective PR campaign against nuclear for the last 50 years.
Patents prevent technology from advancing as quickly as it could. Patents don’t encourage innovation except in minor cases. We badly need more innovation to drive up our technology.
GDP equals lifestyle.
