    Millennials, why do some of you approve of communism?

    Favorite Answer:

    We Boomers remember when things were better.  When capitalism worked better.  We tend to be optimistic, believing we could get back to those good old days.  But it's been about 40 years now since capitalism began going off the rails and a lot of us are beginning to realize 'good' capitalism isn't coming back.

    But millennials don't remember before Ronald Reagan, when the economy was fairer, when the middle class still had opportunities, when every generation did a little better than their parents.  Millennials are in the perfect place to see that capitalism is out of control.  Capitalism doesn't benefit THEM.

    Besides, after about 1990, communism as such didn't really exist.  The USSR broke up.  China is more capitalist than even we are.  Even Yugoslavia fell apart.  There's no Big Bad Communism for Millennials' parents to warn them about.

    I completely agree with you, though.  A millennial commie is better than a boomer Q-believer.

    More gas shortage news. Is Biden causing a Carter era gas shortage? ?

    Some gas pumps in Northwest Arkansas close because lack of gasoline

    https://www.4029tv.com/article/some-gas-pumps-in-n...

    One gas station was closed in my area, another had a long gas line in Oregon. Arkansas is going through a gas shortage now. And Texas. And Mount Vernon.

    Some local gas stations temporarily run out of gasoline

    These gasoline outages are a lingering effect of February's winter storm that forced some Texas refineries to close.

    Mount Vernon vehicles running out of gas as city faces fuel shortage due to unpaid bills

    If this is more than weather doing this . . . BIDEN DID IT. But let's wait and see, yuh?

    Should I register to vote to get picked for jury duty faster? ?

    So I'm an ancap and I'm never going to vote. I'm morally opposed to voting for someone to control non violent individuals and/or take their money so I'll never do it. But I really really want to be picked for jury duty (at least picked for the pool of potential jurors). I'm 32 and haven't been summoned at all yet. I'm not too keen on the idea of registering to vote but would it really help me to get summoned faster?

    Psaki says she never heard claim Hunter Biden got $3.5M from wife of ex-Moscow mayor?

    WASHINGTON — White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday said that she’s “not familiar” with a widely reported claim that a company associated with first son Hunter Biden received $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow’s former mayor, after being asked by The Post what the payment was for.

    “I’m not familiar with that claim. It doesn’t sound like it’s backed up by a lot of evidence. If you have evidence or specifics, I’m happy to discuss it further,” Psaki said at her daily press briefing in response to a question from The Post.

    Psaki said, referring to a report from the Senate Finance and Homeland Security committees that made the claim, “I’m not familiar with the report at all.”

    Democrats cant even hire someone with brains.

    Are victims of car accidents just supposed to accept drastically low settlements when the at fault party is under-insured?

    I'm completely shocked and take aback by this process.

    I was in a car accident of which the other driver is 100% at fault. He has a policy limit of 100k. 

    I retained an attorney 3 yrs and some months ago, our agreement is the she will receive 1/3 of the gross settlement before medical bills.

    All of my medical bills, 61,000 in total, were billed to medicaid which is the insurance that is given to people in my state that are out of work. The bills have been paid by medicaid, leaving me with no balance. However, there is a lien on my settlement which entitles medicaid to take back the entire 61,000 from my settlement. My lawyer didn't ever explain this to me. Had I have known I'd have to pay back bills that were already paid, I would have tried to have the defendants car insurance or my car insurance billed for the medical bills, not medicaid under my name.

    Now I owe medicaid 61,000, my lawyer will be owed just over 34,500 after her 1/3rd and fees. The policy limit is only 100k, that means I lost 95,500 of the settlement.

    This to me seems outrageous. I have permanent nerve damage, I've been to over 100 medical appointments including 6 specialists, had an invasive procedure in the OR, have reduced function of my left extremity and had to change careers since my career was physically demanding, the career I have a degree in. My earning capacity is drastically reduced now. I lost wages, had to drop out of school. 

    Why can my attorney not go after assets the defendant makes 100k+/yr

    Work considers jury duty I excused absence.?

    Favorite Answer:

    Arizona state law protects employees from discharge or otherwise being penalized for jury duty, but does not require an employer to pay employees for time spent in jury service. However, an employer may run afoul of the FLSA if they refuse to pay a salaried, exempt employee for time off for jury duty. Counting your leave against attendance appears to be a violation. Get unionized.

    What is in Trump’s tax returns?

    That he refuses to disclose?  He went to a grand jury to have them protected so there is something he is hiding.  What is it?
