Hey Retiredbanker,The average republican voter ladies and gentlemen!
The rapist-in-chief & global waming denier will be voted out. The most dangerous threat to the whole society. And after introducing a fair voting system, republicans will have to move so far to the left that you wouldn't even be able to recognize them. Won't respond anymore because its pointless, taking into consideration that you & retiredbanker got dunked on multiple times by multiple people in this thread already. Cheers!
Yang calls out 'reality TV show' style elections that resulted in Trump: 'We need to be laser-focused'
Andrew Yang ripped the media and U.S. politics in general during his closing statement at Wednesday's Democratic presidential primary debate in Detroit, trashing America's "reality TV show" elections that he said contributed to President Trump's 2016 victory.
Yang remarked during his closing statement that some in the media focused on his wardrobe during the first debate rather than his policy proposals and called on voters to be "laser-focused" on dealing with pressing issues facing the country.
"We're up here with makeup on our faces and our rehearsed attack lines, playing roles in this reality TV show," Yang quipped. "It's one reason why we elected a reality TV star as our president. "We need to be laser-focused on solving the real challenges of today," he added.
Don't you love those people (like mango) who quote and post links to mainstream media? They are so funny. They think they are intelligent and informed. They don't understand that mainstream media is for ignorant sheep.
Some of us grew bored with mainstream media in college. We graduated to trade publications, academic journals and individual research. Feel free to contact me on this issue, or any other, when you have done some research beyond mainstream media and have engaged in independent thought.
Let me give you an example of what I am talking about - it involves information that you are probably incapable of understanding. You put some jab out there about climate change. Do you know who I trust when it comes to climate change? I trust people who have hundreds of billions of dollars on the line in relation to climate change. I don't trust NGO partisans, environmental do-gooders, or scientists that work in a university lab. I trust people who have an enormous economic stake in the climate change game.
Insurance and reinsurance companies risk billions of dollars every year on climatic events. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year on the best scientists, meteorologists and technology, all in an effort to predict climate change. If they make mistakes, it costs the re/insurance companies, their executives and their shareholders billions of dollars.
Do you know what these insurance people say? Of course you don't. If you listen to their presentations or read their reports, they indicate that, according to their findings, there is no clear link yet between extreme weather patterns of late and climate change. They do not doubt that we are having an effect on the environment. That is indisputable. But people who risk billions of dollars every year are uncertain about the link between recent changes in weather patterns and climate change. The earth's climate has always changed - the conclusion that such changes are directly correlated to our society's activities are specious (I hope you know what "specious" means).
These people have no ax to grind, they have no dog in the fight. They are indifferent whether there is a link or not. They insure energy production and renewable energy production. They win either way. They are an excellent source of impartial information on this emotional topic which most people, such as yourself, simply follow like sheep, based on mainstream media.
Now go away mango. You bother me.
