IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!
—Me, all throughout October
“The most important chart about the American economy you’ll see this year”
The post WW2 economy was the most evenly distributed, fastest growing, and most stable economy that the United States has ever enjoyed and that is because income equality was relatively equal. Income equality is the single largest determining factor in the growth and stability of the economy. It’s not debt, it’s not private sector stimulus (which rarely if ever works), it’s income equality. For every 10th percentile increase in Economic Inequality, growth is slowed by 50%. Immagine where the country would be without Reagan’s brand of conservatism. The country would be trillions and trillions of dollars wealthier, poverty would be much lower, and we’d be much more advanced.
There is a reason why Democratic presidents have a statistically significant average economic growth increase that well exceeds that of republicans, and why democratic congresses have an average economic growth rate that also exceeds their republican counterparts. Liberal policies work. That’s settled fact.
Remember that your vote counts. The best thing that you can do for your country is get involved and vote blue.
I’m not educated enough in this area to know if these facts are skewed or not, but it’s something interesting to ponder nonetheless.
I had heard bits and pieces about this whole Sam Pepper situation but didn’t realize how awful it was. This whole thing disgusts me.
In no way is it okay to make another human do anything sexual with you. Whether it’s physically touching or verbal abuse. It’s not okay. Period. No matter what gender you identify with.
Why can’t people just get this through their heads? Why does this have to be a constant thing that people let slide?
As someone who gets cat-called frequently by males of all ages, I just wish it would stop. I’m lucky in that things have never gone further than that, but I shouldn’t have to consider that lucky. Because it’s not.
