  1. When you make comments like you did, I take everything you say about brains with a massive grain of salt.
  2. Lol. Is everyone in Rochester at batshit crazy as you?
  3. Come on dude. I know it's Friday night and we all like to get a little bit drunk, but surely one who is this confident in their work would know the difference between sited and cited, right? I literally wrote a 1750 word Torts midterm not 4 days ago in 2 hours and 15 minutes. 3500 words is nothing.
  4. 3500 words? That's it? Hahahahaha. The fact that you think that makes you a credible source in any sense is laughable at best.
  5. Riveting commentary. Highly persuasive. You've sold me on your point, even if I have no idea what it is. /s
  6. Maybe now he'll get the appreciation he deserves? Hmmm... naaaaahhhhh.
  7. I don't think enough people fully understand how much this one factor alone impacts just about everything else you listed. If you have 5 minutes, please watch this. It's a snippet from the documentary "Inequality for All" and articulates my points better than I can. "The wider the prosperity => the more people were included in that prosperity => the more that prosperity generated even more prosperity." And compare that with the following 35 second clip from the same documentary that illustrates the opposite approach. When inequality grows, wages stagnate. Stagnant wages means workers buy less than they would have with rising wages. When workers buy less, companies downsize or cease growing. When companies downsize and wages stagnate, tax revenues decrease. Lower tax revenues means government must cut programs. Many of these programs help lift people out of poverty, like funding of public education. A lower educated workforce in a 21st century industrialized economy means there are fewer employable persons, and unemployment rises. With even fewer people paying taxes and more people drawing on government programs because of higher poverty rates, deficits grow. Higher deficits means the government can do even less to combat inequality and increase wages.
  8. Hi, RealKayAdams. This is the original piece from June 26, 2019: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/06/26/opinion/sunday/republican-platform-far-right.html I agree that the main weakness of many left leaning candidates is personality weakness and strategy blunders rather than policies. It amazes me sometimes how they can't articulate what are genuinely good ideas. I think I'm very close to where you reside on the spectrum. I like many Marxist principles but I'm not so far to the left (or so far authoritarian) that I would call myself a Marxist-Leninist. I think in the (very) long run communism of some form will prevail, if only out of necessity. Capitalism is fascinating in that it has sown the seeds of its very own destruction; it's only a matter of time. I'd like to write more but I have a Contracts midterm exam tomorrow that I need to study for. I look forward to reading more of your posts! EDIT: I'm Polish too!
  9. Lol Knox looked nasty on that run after catch.
  10. Edmunds looked totally out of position on that TD run.
