    Yep, hey did you hear low income school districts will limit teachers personal funding of classroom supplies at $250 with the new tax plan?

    Education, it's just too expensive.

    A side note, imagine the chaos/profits if American religion was allowed in china. hehe

    Because that would be changing the subject.

    Update: @ttystikk demonstrates his "Look! Squirrel!" technique here quite clearly. He'll never get back around to answering the original question. He's like this guy:

    Why can everywhere else do it so much cheaper and much higher quality?

    I quoted the interview verbatim. How did I "put words into his mouth"?

    you quoted the interview then continued to put your own interpretation on it...
    This is the part where you are putting words into his mouth
    those words you typed were not said by him or alluded to

    I read your post. Ginja is right. Nowhere in the interview does economic policy come up. You said economic policy. You put words in his figurative mouth. When you did that you skewed the meaning of what was said in the interview. This is a good example of why you simply can't correctly assess the current political situation and nobody should listen to you.

    Ginja's interpretation of the interview is accurate. Except billionaires do have more influence than you or I or any person of normal means. This doesn't mean we have to do their bidding but it does mean we should listen when they tell us something is pissing them off. It certainly means we should get what they are saying right.

    They just want to kneel n suck the corporate cock, hoping the exercise will leave enough on their chin to survive on.

    You're fake news, please don't spam our site with your bullshit.

    Literally what he said was disproven and you come along like the retard you are, ignore the already completed discord and declare victory.

    Honestly now, how are you so fucking delusional? Do you genuinely smoke meth or something harder than pot?

    The formula is simple; execution not so much.

    We need to somehow stop the requirement of cash 'to win'..because it's NOT a requirement..it's who can outspend who.

    We MUST stop this practice.

    When that is taken off the table the NEED for cash will be too.

    This is HOW we problem solve!

    The real question is how do we take away the NEED?

    What do you suppose Cloobeck is referring to here;

    Cloobeck - "I've talked to [Chuck] Schumer, I've talked to [Ron] Wyden, I've talked to [Nancy] Pelosi, and I said "If you use the term "Billionaires again, I'm done."
    ...
    Ruhle - "Then are you worried that the Democratic party is going too far to the left?"
    Cloobeck - "So much so it drives me nuts! So much so, it would make me quit the party! And, I've made it very clear, I'll cut your money off! And others will do the same. We've had enough! We need a new brand!"


    Why is he upset that Democrats use the term "Billionaires"?

    Why is he threatening to "quit the party" if they go "too far to the left"?

    Back in April, Steve said:

    "I am forever a Democrat," Mr. Cloobeck said. "I believe in Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood, civil rights and the other core principles and values of the Democratic Party.

    Steven said that right before endorsing a fucking Republican for senator in his home state.

    On November 7th, Cloobeck stepped up his criticism of the Republican Party, calling the GOP "bigoted" and "anti-Semitic." “They are very, unfortunately, bigoted, anti-Semitic and caustic,” he said on MSNBC. “And creating civil war.”

    On November 8th, he withdrew his support for that Republican senator.

    Sounds like the guy from Undercover Boss, just likes saying stupid shit and being on TV, and isn't actually going anywhere. I guess that wouldn't have been as provocative of a thread title though. Even if it is infinitely more accurate than the one you chose.

    You think Cloobeck is threatening to leave the Democratic party "if they go too far to the left" because he sounds like the guy from Undercover Boss and just likes saying stupid shit and being on TV"?
