What I actually see in jr2's posts isn't blind faith in some Trump deity, but simply countering some overexaggerated points of criticism (if not outright false but I'm not keen on going into details). Yeah sure, Trump and his administration are Bad, but does that anyhow facilitate assigning every single Bad thing that happens to him?
Just as I'd like to throw compost at the image of current Polish ruling party, because I believe they continued ruthlessly destroying our country's economy, voter awareness, social rules and standards, and the minds of the youth for the partisan benefit in power and wealth - from where their predecessors left, I must admit that within all of the **** that they poured out for the nation to bear, there were some... Not as negative as expected effects, and there were at least a couple positive laws passed. Doesn't matter if that's unexpected results of oppressive laws or actual moments of good faith towards the people.
@Batutta: Depends who is these 3 millions. I wonder if this event is going to remind to people the actual reason for respecting and helping the elderly to stay in our society comfortably for as long as possible. Not pity or morality, the actual pragmatic reason.
For all my hopes that it doesn't get to such ridiculous numbers, I think that may be the last drop that would get the US society to grab the pitchforks and rip apart their corrupt government and the self-servient, monopolistic enterprises... figuratively rip apart, that is.
@BlueFlames: This is one of the slogans that I can't actually comprehend in any way. Just look at it. If the Poor would not be Poor if not for the evil Rich that are stealing their fruits of labor... Then there's absolutely no reason for the Rich to
kill these Poor
let these Poor die. Because when Poor are allowed to die, the Rich are losing income.
Okay, you might say. But when the Poor become elderly or ill, they need to have money invested into them in the form of medical services to bring their wealth output back to normal levels, which might be even totally impossible anyway, right? So there's preventitive medicine. The Rich would want to not lose income because of the Poor becoming inefficient too early and to not have to invest wealth into them to get them back up to good output levels, and we all know that you need to use prevention because it's much cheaper and less troublesome than healing people later on. So actual medical prevention is more profitable for the Rich...
Then also count in the fact that less overworked and scared of losing income people seem to have actual better efficiency in creating wealth that can be stolen by the Rich, as Microsoft proved in Japan by shortening the work day to 6 hours
and profiting from it, IIRC.
So where's the "Rich want Poor dead" theme?
