@MajorPuigBaseball Because it is fun to make fun of trolls, especially when they don't realize they look like morons

@deblue This (although even I would argue that libertarian-ism is bullshit, but that's not the point). Good to know that the folks of DoDi are for the most part, very smart individuals. Right baseball team, good other stuff. Yay world.

@Flask @DodgerNoLongerLivingintheBay @ConfederacyofBuntses (still 2015 NOTY eligible) @Chad Moriyama Cool. So the fact that the people you are underwriting risk for have shitty lifestyles goes into your metrics, right? It wouldn't be the case that if they had a higher standard of living that the risk might be decreased and your return on investment might actually be higher?


I represent banks for a living, so I don't need you trying to man-'splain the idea of economics and how wealth transfers work.


The notion of an unfettered, perfect market only exists when everyone has perfect information. The fact that we don't have that (and can't), means that markets will forever be inefficient and thus some sort of other, third-party force is required.


Also, if you like unfettered marketplaces, I'm sure you love the idea of monopolies since they are basically just the giant winners in the marketplace sweepstakes, yeah? You totally love the idea that the winner takes the spoils and then when there is no competition left because the space has been crowded out, prices for goods and services go through the roof? Awesome.


"Active trader". What does that even mean? That's one of those phrases that day traders use to make themselves sound important when they're really just pushing papers.


Government is inefficient, really? So explain then why Medicare has a 2% operating cost and private insurers have 8-10%. I await your sound logic on this.


I feel like I'm talking to someone who read Wealth of Nations for the first time and thinks we are living in a 17th century feudal, pre-industrial economy where such a system actually made sense.

@Flask @ConfederacyofBuntses (still 2015 NOTY eligible) @Chad Moriyama I...I just can't compete with this iron-clad logic. Oh wait...yes I can because it's complete and utter bullshit.


The US has the highest standard of living, yes, but we also have one of the highest levels of income inequality anywhere. Those unions you speak of create collective bargaining so things like: weekends, paid holidays, pensions, unemployment insurance, child labor laws, military leave, and pregnancy leave are not theoretical concepts. Not to mention the fact that collective bargaining is the single greatest way to keep large monopolies in under-competitive markets to keep their rates down.


Raising taxes also doesn't stifle investment. Numerous studies have shown that public investment yields a tremendous amount more than private investment that often goes unchecked, unmonitored, and towards projects with no real end games.


Actually take an economics class. Oh, and if you think I'm bullshitting you, I'm an Ivy League economics major who happens to be an attorney, makes 6 figures, is in his mid 20s and votes Democrat. But remember, I'm just lazy.

Seems a lot like Kemp is playing the Dustin Brown role from 2012 when he was the center of trade talks, had a hat trick and shut everyone up. Kings won the cup that year. Will take a similar outcome here.
