Re: “Hillary Clinton for president

Fgf, I'm not interested in arguing semantics with you. If somebody wants to come to America then they should be able to. Who are you to tell them no? Putting a physical army in their way isn't the answer.

So more people with more money creating more demand doesn't raise prices? You just described an inflation creating force. Where does the extra supply come from? How does that benefit everybody? Do I get a raise because Steve at the factory got his job back and it's not fair he makes as much as me?Underpants--> ? -->Profit, right?

Don't get it twisted. Republicans support business owners. Not employees. If you're worried about creating jobs for the average Joe then you should consider voting Democrat. You may have a nice boss, but not a lot of people do. In fact they made a whole TV show around the premise that one of the candidates is a terrible boss, and how comical it is to watch people try to please him. He has a billion reasons in the bank why that trickle down doesn't work.

Re: “Hillary Clinton for president

Hillary is the most qualified person still in the race. If you don't see that you just have an axe to grind. Unfortunately, you're just going to end up hurting yourself. The hypocrisy of Trump supporters is mind boggling. "We love America...Burn it to the ground!"

Here are my thoughts, not that anybody asked...
Q: "We need to secure our border, why is this even controversial?
A: Restricting immigration is one of the most un-American things you can say.

Q: "Trump wants to renegotiate trade deals so that American workers have some protection when competing with workers in Asia who work for Pennies an hour."
A: Trade deals keep prices down. If trade deals are reworked, prices will go up, but your income wont.

Q:"Hillary has far too much baggage to be the leader America needs now"
A: Did O'bama have baggage? Republicans would do this to any Democrat regardless. Don't beg the question. "Hilary is unfit because the republicans said she is unfit". Please.

Q:"ask yourself which candidate has received the bulk of the financing from corporations and unions"
A: Hilary may be funded by corporations, but trump IS the corporation. Are you asking us why bother with second hand "corruption" when you can get it from the horse's mouth? How ridiculous to think that politicians can't fund raise in the current system. Until there's a cap on campaign financing its a necessary evil. Nobody would stand a chance against the billionaires, and then they'd do what they want once elected anyways!

Q:"If you like being involved in stupid wars from Iraq to Libya to Syria"
A: All of a sudden Republicans are against wars in the Middle East. How convenient. "we fight them over there so we don't have to fight them here". When did all the Republicans have their "Oh S#!t" moment and turn on the wars? My guess is right after they stopped making money on it.

Q:"If you don't like the way things are heading, you've got a chance to shake this system to its roots."
A: And sometimes that tree falls on you...

Re: “Bold new proposal put forth for Midtown

Nobody is saying anything (is this a joke? I don't get it), so I feel the need to point out that this is awful. Modern architecture? A la 1970. The building looks like it's from a comic book (back when they were nerdy, and before nerdy was cool), and the power point just confirms its absurdity. It starts off by not answering any of its own questions. Then it throws in a spelling error, and just panders to the mayor for the rest of it.

History Lesson: The Eiffel tower was built for the French Revolution's 100th Anniversary. It was a temporary structure that was supposed to be taken down after 20 years. It wasn't taken down due to its scientific research benefits then later for its military advantages. Then it became a national icon.

To bemoan building a "fix "for a specific current need, and then almost immediately laud the benefits of and the inspiration of another world famous "fix"-for-a-specific-current-need is preposterous... Or maybe its iron-y (a little architecture humor for you).
