    Rising debt - yes it is raising. As a percentage of debt raise it is still lower than Bush 1, Bush 2 and about a 3rd of Regan's debt explosion.

    Income Disparity - yes unfortunately CEOs are still robbing the country with impunity.

    Work Force Shrinking - https://www.statista.com/statistics/...sa-since-1990/ Full time employees have never been higher in the USA. There was a large drop due to the recession from 2007 - 2009 but jobs have recovered and then some.

    Raising Healthcare premiums - this problem stems from the US not having guaranteed single payer healthcare for every US citizen unlike nearly every other industrialized nation in the world. That's not something the republicans are going to change, ever.

    Artificial Bubble - I assume this is reference to housing prices. On this I agree. It's nearly as bad as the early to mid Bush years.

    I don't know how old you are but i remember back in the 80's the stereotype of a Conservative Republican was basically soulless but super smart. Think Alex P Keaton on Family Ties. Boy oh boy have things changed.
    Okay. So there's the challenge. The Democrats have to do a better job than the Republicans have done. Doing. A better job than your opponent is how you win elections.

    An accident? How do you accidentally accelerate into a street fair? Drunk Dude? A person that drunk that managed to navigate Berlin traffic just fine until the street fair?

    I agree that it could be a crazy dude gone wild. But it'll be a crazy dude gone wild that believes himself to be advancing the cause of radical islamic jihad.

    So, without even getting into which religions are more or less violent at this present moment, I'm glad to see that you guys at least admit this now. Before it used to be that "Islam is a religion of peace". Now it's "everyone sucks". That last one is at least closer to the truth!

    What, you don't have crying fits when a leader of another country, like Justin Trudeau, gets elected? I'm still bawling uncontrollably like a baby over that one.

    By the way, the latter wouldn't surprise me in the least, though real liberals are doing a pretty good job of ridiculing themselves without even trying.

    I agree that it could be a crazy dude gone wild. But it'll be a crazy dude gone wild that believes himself to be advancing the cause of radical islamic jihad.
    Some old dude drove through a farmers market in Santa Barbara killing 5 people I think about 5 to 10 years ago. He probably should have had his license revoked prior to it as he was old partially senile and starting to lose sight if I recall correctly. I believe the official ruling was "accident" after the fact.

    edit 2003 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_...s_Market_crash 86 year old dude claimed accident buy was found guilty of 10 counts of manslaughter.

    Another "potential accident" could be break failure. Not saying that happened just coming up how it could be an accident.

    I'm not saying it would easily be an accident. But I could just as easily see some pissed off crazy dude simply deciding he's gonna run over a bunch of people just cuz as I can see an intentional act of terror.

    And yes it may well be an Islamic act of terror. Or it could be some Christian nut job like Timothy McVeigh back in the Oklahoma city bombing.

    All I'm saying is let's not leap to conclusions until the facts are out which probably going to be sometime in the next 4 to 72 hours.

    Randomly blaming it on Islamic Terrorist before we know that helps no one even if it later turns out to be true.

    I don't know if this would've made a difference, but it would've been good if we had been able to find out.
    Your cousin is Dave Chappelle?

    Chappelle continued that what Trump said didn't sound like "sexual assault" to him and that the media "twisted" Trump's words. "He said, ‘And when you’re a star, they let you do it.’ That phrase implies consent. I just don’t like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it.”
