    To many facts, and too much truth.

    You don't have to look any further than most the comments from right wingers on Patrick.net. They don't mind lying at all. The concept of that particular form of integrity (honesty) is meaningless to them. It's all about how believing the lies makes them feel.

    Does this make them sociopaths who truly don't care what's true ? Or are they just lacking the intellectual skills required to discern fact from fiction?

    I honestly can't answer that. But I have seen plenty of proof right here in this forum that sharing facts and logic that contradicts their lies, has absolutely no impact.

    MAny of them at least seem to be selling lies that they know are lies.

    I inherited. I took on the remaining mortgage so my blind brother who is older than me would not have to move from the home he lived in before he was blind. He also has a spectrum disorder, and between the two it is not recommended he leave where he has memorized. My mother died a horrendous death through FTD, before her sudden illness she was brother's caretaker and conservator. I still have PTSD from the whole thing.

    Are you good now?

    To be very frank I'm clearly not in an emotional state yet to even write about it. I know some of you would think that makes me a wimp and weak, but this kind of grief and pressure can go on for years, and just because some of you think I should be over it by now just means you know nothing about going through something like this. So many people think getting a home and acquiring an "empire" is all that matters and will make them satisfied. Well, I have news for all of you, it's not what matters. It's just a house. The bank owns it and the government has a right to take it away if they please. You are all guaranteed nothing. Property rights are an illusion and game at best. My mother left me a home worth over two million, and what did I get? A trap, and the worst thing is that all that matters at the end of the day is that she no longer smiles or sings in that "empire" or piece of real estate. It's empty to me, so unbelievably empty.

    The cop in the video clearly says all he wanted was to see her id. The cop had the authority to demand an id, and she had obligation to show it. If she had just used common sense and showed the id all this would not have happened in the first place. She wasted the cops time, thus wasting the tax payers money, and made a fool of herself.
    I would fine this bimbo just for being stupid.

    Yeah, thanks E-man for your advice. Your reactions are cute.

    I own and business, a non-profit and I lecture at the university, so don't waste any of your very self-important time worrying over what I contribute.

    Ha! Maybe I should take your advice and try and find some other creative outlet besides choreographing, designing and directing the Bay Area's biggest semiprofessional nonprofit Nutcracker.

    Snicker, snicker. ;-)

    It's still a crap hole. Just because I choose to try and beautify the crap hole does not mean I don't recognize it's a crap hole. On the contrary, I believe in whistling in the dark and decorating your prison.

    From the article:
    "Allied health care jobs are technical — licensed vocational nurses, dental hygienists, and imaging technologists, for example — and support positions, such as certified nursing assistants, medical assistants, and dental assistants. They typically require an associate degree or post-secondary certificate that can often be completed in fewer than two years."

    LVN/LPN's, dental hygienist, imaging techs, respiratory workers, medical assistants, etc don't wipe asses. They are the people who are providing services that don't require bachelor's degrees. There are many different vocations that don't require bachelor's degrees.

    FYI, the "Bed pan changers" you appear to view with disdain are providing personal care to people in need. They work very hard, are paid shit wages (no pun intended) and are afforded little to no respect. These workers lift patients, help them with ambulation, feed them, bathe them, change them, perform light housekeeping and are able to stay with patients so that family members can get out.

    They are the "eyes" & "ears" for other members of the caregiving team... people share personal issues with them because they feel intimately connected to these workers who see them more often than the nurses, physical therapists, social workers, etc.

    The superior CNA's with whom I work have told me such things as that patient's families are stealing from them, that they're being abused, that patient's confessed they don't take their meds... They are a wealth of information and assistance, and a vital part of the caregiving team. That they don't require a degree doesn't make them any less valuable.

    After all, you don't have one - do you?

    Banks committed securities fraud, money laundering, forgery and perjury (robosigning). Their credit ratings are worse than the folks they lend to, but yet they borrow at a lower cost and mark up the loan to their better credit rating borrowers. The whole system is a fraud designed to reward the 1% and to punish the 99%. Tishman Speyer and Blackrock defaulted on a multibillion dollar loan, and missed a $16 million payment before defaulting. They are still borrowing money. I think folks are barking up the wrong tree when they complain about proposals to loosen the leash on the serfs. What is needed is to guillotine those holding the leash.

    I must agree with Marcus, popular or not.

    A right winger told me himself. They simply 'project' and blame their mistakes on their opponent. Amazingly effective.

    Yeah, happens all the time on this site.

    Reality says

    The primary beneficiary of a tax holiday would be the middle class and upper middle class ($60k-350k annual income range), the real job creators

    The jobs creators are doing fine. Corporate profits are through the roof. They just don't create job, and there is no need to give them more money.

    You are looking at the wrong metric. "Corporate profits" refer to the profit at the larger corporations, be it S&P500 or Wilshire5000, the control and profit of which mostly benefit the top 0.01% that mostly face the 15% capital gain tax.

    These larger corporations are not the job creators, but the net job destroyers. Most larger/older corporations are net job destroyers as they consolidate in older industries. The real job creators are the small and young businesses. Many of them are sole-proprietors. Their profitability or lack thereof does not show up in your "Corporate profit" metric. As a matter of fact, the latest statistic is that people working for themselves are hitting all time lows recently! That's why I clearly stated the $60k-350k income crowd are the real job creators: the small business owners, the middle class and upper middle class with discretionary spending, which enable new and small businesses.

    The current problem is not supply side, it's demand side. Can you please adjust your rhetoric?

    The so-called "demand side analysis" is always a logic fallacy, just like the fallacy regarding Henry Ford paying workers enough to enable them to buy cars as a way of expanding sales and profitability at his company. One can not survive by feeding on one's own limbs! Demand can only be fulfilled (i.e qualified) when there is production first. Otherwise, the command economies with many a dictator and bureaucrats issuing all sorts of "demand" would be flourishing instead of going bankrupt.

    Even the canonical Keynesianism only proposed short-term borrowing forward future demand, not perpetual borrowing into the future to sustain demand indefinitely. Every borrowing will have to be paid back with interested added. In the long run, any sustained borrowing is a net reduction in demand due to the need to pay interest, just like people living off credit cards and payday loans inevitably live lower standards of living due to the need to pay interest out of whatever total income they have every month.

    It's a Lesbian Dating Service.

    But popular major? Like Art History, not even 1% of all graduates by major.

    Women's Studies majors generally avoid STEM courses like the plague, perferring Muh Sojiny and Rape in Literature WS309, then spend their lives complaining about the lack of women in STEM.

    A real cop would have raped the negress to death and eaten her liver in front of the boy friend before ordering him to eat her foot at gunpoint.

    What the fuck is wrong with cops these days?

    California, specifically the Bay Area and So Cal are up because of:
    1. Jobs
    2. Jobs
    3. Jobs
    4. Chinese and Indian investors because they realize that this is where the jobs are and are collecting houses for their spoiled children who will never have a job.

    Any additions?

    In my opinion both places are overpopulated, crime ridden and have a surplus of ugly architecture due to mafia like permit laws which force people to:

    A. Build ugly homes because after paying permit fees there is nothing left over to make it look nice.
    B. The permit laws are under the guise of helping the public be safe and environmental, but instead force the owner-builder to choose ugly designs.
    C. The only people who can get away with building what they want due to jacked up permit laws are nouveau rich who have zero taste and build giant eye sores.

    But people just keep coming to our crap hole for jobs.

    There are a few people stuck in these hell holes because all of their living family is still in those areas and refuse to leave. They usually refuse to leave because they bought their house for nothing before the nineties and hate change, and well frankly, all their friends and family still live there.
