When Capitalism returns profits to the owners or investors, it is fulfilling its most basic tenet.
When Capitalism rewards workers with a living wage, protects the environment, invests in its communities to enrich the residents, etc then it has a moral compass.
I like Capitalism, and defend it when my children & friends complain about its worse impacts.
I don’t believe Communism or Socialism are good systems, but I do believe that a truly unregulated Capitalist economy that does NOT provide a living wage, protect the environment, support and volunteer to help improve public schools, invest in its local economy, identifies suppliers who have limited resources who can be developed into excellent business partners is at risk of a short life span.
As we continue in the current phase of computerization (after phases of agriculture, trade, industrialization, globalization) with the afterburner of Artificial Intelligence we are most likely going to go through a period of job and industry destruction AND creation.
We can look back to the “good ole days” or we can work together to find a path through our current and evolving environment. I’d prefer the forward looking path and trying to use our moral compass to bring along our community, which is not just my family or my tribe.
Dear snowflakes…and there were a few that read my comments as all conservative speech is hate speech and not “Conservative HATE Speech”. I’m not a D. I’m not a R. G’nite.
Love the gun, hate the gunner seems to be your solution. I love your definition of Democrat’s largest constituency and agree that with abortion rulings they are likely to swing to the left, thanks!
I dropped X because I didn’t want to fund “IT” and there are alternatives such as Threads.
PS – a private corporation or person does NOT have to follow the First Amendment, the federal government DOES. Conservatives hate speech is not a right, you can take it any of the your favorite channels which I shall not list.
“First AmendmentCongress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
AI bot…is there some question or point which is guaranteed to return a certain value?
Geezer does seem to spend a huge amount of time responding to comments with little one liners and short paragraphs. Interesting theory.
Google CNN “Texas Supreme Court temporarily blocks pregnant woman from emergency abortion”
I hope the TSC quickly comes to its senses, allows the abortion, and reminds Ken Paxton he is an officer of the court and will follow court orders or pursue complaints through the courts and not through intimidation.
But if not, and Kate Fox is forced by the state to carry until term or natural miscarriage, then I hope all the voters of Texas remember that the way to regain control over their own bodies and life is to vote anything but Republican.
Yes, and I believe that it is effective and efficient to fund Ukraine. Have a nice day!
Would be wonderful for the RINOs (current leadership of the Grand Ole Party) to indict Joe. Then the “they” who are spreading conspiracy and lies can come to the Senate and testify officially. While the Senators are protected from liability of their speech while in the “house”, others are not. Joe and Hunter can make billions in lawsuits.
That’s not how he is carrying the elephant, though the head is not visible.
@Ramireztoons – brilliant! Could also have Infrastructure Week, Lock Her Up, and Only I Can Fix XYZ.
Soon he’ll get the Lost 2024 Election, Got Locked Up in 2024, Lost His Billions in 2024 awards.
