Ginsburg is 84, she is living on borrowed time. Trump could very well be a two-term president, in order to outlast Trump, she will have to live past 92. BTW, Breyer is 78, he is no spring chicken himself. Kennedy is 80, he has been a wishy-washy justice. Would love to see him replaced by s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The US population is 324 million. Less than HALF of that population is employed/working. HALF these people are not even paying any kind of tax. 85-90 million people of working age are NOT EMPLOYED or NOT WORKING. The nation is $20 TRILLION in debt.

re: Smoot-Hawley Tariffs Demonstrates the Horrible Impact of Tariffs and BATs - Reubaltaich on 3/19/17 at 2:34 pm
Stock market crashes late Oct 1929. Economies all over the world, including the US, start contracting. S/H was passed and signed into law June 1930, 8 months AFTER the Wall Street crash. S/H was a bill that languished in the US House for months PRIOR to Oct 1929. So was S/H finally pas...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

S/H was not the ONLY reason for the GD. There was a HUGE bubble in the stock market. Stocks were hugely over valued. Farmers were producing huge amounts of grain and other agri-products with no where to sell them. There was huge 'asset' bubbles in the roaring 1920s....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Could even go further back than that. Read up on some the spying techniques that were employed during WWII. There are ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
