@zesty If we are the safest, why do we have more fatalities due to fire arms than any other industrialized nation? Safety and freedom do not necessarily equate. As FDR said “a necessitous man is not a free man.” By this definition I think many other countries would have greater freedom than the US.

@St-Sinner Clinton certainly sullied the dignity of the office. Trump has wiped his ass with it. There is still testimony to be heard from others involved in the investigation, but probably nothing will come of it. Since the non prosecution of Nixon, we have failed to hold presidents accountable. Reagan should have been convicted in the Iran/Contra mess. George H W Bush was complicit in that scandal as well as drug smuggling from South America and was saved by non other than William Barr. We’ve covered Clinton. George W Bush with the help of Cheney lied us into a war and ordered to commission torture and other war crimes. Obama’s drone war and the execution of an American citizen without a trial could certainly be investigated. Will we ever hold our leaders accountable for their actions?

My understanding of a free market is one of no rules or regulations. Without those things we get monopoly irrespective of technological change. Reasonable regulations such as US policy from the end of the second world war, led to greater competition, more growth and a more equitable wealth distribution within our country.

Every 10 years political districts are adjusted. In 2010, Republicans held enough state majorities to draw district lines in their favor - Gerrymandering. Even though there are far more Democratic votes cast in the US, Republicans hold the majority of offices. Senate races aren’t influenced greatly by gerrymandering, but incumbency itself is a huge advantage. McConnell has increased his personal wealth immensely during his time in office, only partly due to his marriage to the heiress of an international shipping company, and campaign contributions from Russia.

@mojo5501 The tax cut passed by the Republicans is the equivalent of handing a brand new, trillion dollar credit card the obscenely rich. The deficit has increased by 1.5 trillion due to this, and tax revenues aren’t increasing anywhere near enough to pay for it. The increase in stock market value comes mostly from corporations using their tax savings to buy up their own stock (wich increases it’s value, since there are fewer shares on the market to purchase), the increase in stock value translates to higher CEO earnings, since they can receive compensation in the form of company stock. It’s a pyramid scheme which will crash in due time.
Deal-breakers and Red Flags are often discussed here - this is the opposite. Not a bad start?

Why do you presume the government would screw it up? Our highway system is run by a combination of federal, state and local governments and for the most part does a good job. I believe any sort of national healthcare would be along the same lines. The only other way I can envision healthcare for all would be to require all insurance companies to become not for profit institutions. I can’t think of any country that has government run healthcare that’s screwed it up so badly that they’ve reverted to private, for profit insurance companies - perhaps we’d be the first, but I’m a little more optimistic:)
First earthquake experience this morning a little before 3 am! Whole bed was shaking back and forth....
Haemish1 comments on Jul 12, 2019:
This is the first I’ve heard of it! My father is in Port Angeles, and spends a fair amount of time worrying about earth quakes. How strong was it?
Haemish1 replies on Jul 12, 2019:
@happyhiker1 Glad it wasn’t any worse! I experienced my first earthquake a couple years ago - it woke me from a sound sleep- definitely a startling experience.
Single? Have a pool party! This looks more fun, to me, lol.

That’s ingenuity! Hay bales, plastic and a ratchet strap = instant swim pool! I was on a frac job last summer where our source was the Williston city water supply. The water tank (about Olympic swim pool size) was so unusually clean, most of the frac crew would strip off their coveralls for a ...

We need to stop subsidizing big oil, and find a way for banks to profit from renewable energy. Getting rid of the military and eating less meat would help too.

Haemish1 replies on Jul 10, 2019:
@zesty How recent is your experience outside the US? I haven’t travelled outside the USA in several decades, but from what I’ve read it seems that the current administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords, and the Iran nuclear treaty have diminished our standing in the world view. For the first time, we’ve had citizens of another nation protest our president visiting their country with a ballon representing him as a baby in a diaper. Certainly our science and technology are very good, and we may not be disrespected as individuals, but I think the divisiveness of our politics has lowered our standing in the eyes of the world.
