Just my two cents and I’ll run away from this thread. Reaganomics/Trickle Down Economics is the biggest lie of our times. Tax cuts for the Ultra rich are a scam plain and simple. Any average Joe who fails to see this after years of data, statistics and evidence is ... I feel sad for such people who still continue to believe in this policy of Making the Rich richer.

Hm thank you for your kind sympathy. I’m still working on overcoming the great lie that women can referee men’s football, so I’m gonna have to prioritize that one but I promise I’ll prioritize my pig capitalism second

Huh? What kind of a taunt was that? Are you referring to what I had said sometime before Bayern’s first Pokal game regarding the female referee? If that was your intended insult then you sure need to check out my later posts where I said that I was impressed with her refereeing and even praised female assistant referees.

Anyway, fine I get it, you’re rich and your ilk consider Reagan a God but the truth is that his economic policies were/are devastating for the middle class and lower class folks. Hell the new tax “reform” proposed by the crony Republican capitalists only benefits the Top 10%. Even guys making six digits won’t be spared.

I’m not against free market capitalism but I sure am against cronyism. I’m against corporate money in American politics where the donors can literally buy the politicians and then get massive tax cuts under the bullshit theory that it’ll “trickle-down” on the peasants.

Sorry pal but almost all evidence and studies have debunked the myth of Reaganomics. The only good thing that fallacious theory does is make sure that the Rich folks stay rich and keep getting richer. Good for you if you’re rich and want that but it’ll suck for the rest of us.

I respect a fellow American, Californian and a Bayern fan but I guess we just have to agree to disagree on this one.

Anyway, if i can derail the topic, at least we are (probably) free (at least temporarily) of our Bayern frustration!

Okay you can now returnto your topic. Just wanted to (respectfully) put my (nothing new and therefore unnecessary) 2 cents in!


Definitely free of that :)

First of all I missed that. I was wrong then for thinking you were still sexist. I got pissed off by your apparent condescension towards me and people like me and struck back with an unfair ad hominem.

I think I am, though I have to thank this country for letting my parents in, and thank goodness my parents were lucky enough not to be born in the communist controlled zones. I'm not sure I'd have the guts to move to a country where the official language is my second language. I am not in the top 25% of wage earners here, but I'm better off than people living under communist regimes that's for sure.

I disagree that we can agree to disagree, because this is where we agree. The problem is that while I'd love to tax the segment of the 1% which I believe is actually opposed to a free market, I don't think it's fair to have as collateral damage the part of that segment that is responsible for a lot of innovation. Why should they pay a higher tax rate for being more productive. It's my uninformed opinion that the people you hold responsible for a rigged economy are just going to escape the taxes; they didn't get to the top 1% by playing nice. You think the powerful get their compensation in dollars? They get it in kickbacks in other ways, services paid for in ways you don't see on a tax return.

What I do think is going to happen is that you are going to destroy the productive people who aren't at the controls of the system. And I think a socialist system only enslaves the mass population. Granted, I'm biased by my upbringing, but I believe the examples of the Soviet Union, Cuba, China, North Korea, and Venezuela support my opinion. And before you counter with some whataboutism, that's not to say the USA is perfect either.

Are small tv screens (below 30") going extinct? I'm trying to get one (with HDMI connection) for a room in which there isn't space for a large one but can't find a cheap one. There are 32" ones with Black Friday deals which are cheaper. :evil:

I found a cheapish 24" smart TV but I really think that will be unnecessary for me.

They have a few. I'll wait/visit to see if they have Black Friday Deals as their section of the website is empty. Thanks!

Does it have HDMI ports? Preferably two or more + 1 USB (though not necessary).

Looks like just 1 HDMI port which isn't ideal but not the end of the world. How much are you looking for? Would be interested if I don't find a better deal for Black Friday.
