    Seconding this. I use mostly my first three fingers to type. My left index finger hits "Y" and my right middle finger hits "U" for some reason, among many other strange positions. Absolutely not what school taught, but school really didn't teach typing much.

    Donald Trump had the best policy idea of anyone in last night's debate

    The joke candidate offers a smart idea on health care. The serious ones offer joke ideas.

    No, you are completely ignoring my point. Everyone does not deserve MORE, everyone deserves a BASELINE. We don't get more money until everyone's basic needs are met. When everyone's cup is full, then you can start buying more cups. The employers' cups are full right now and the employees' are not.

    If everyone gets more at a flat, lump sum, it does nothing to change the inequality.

    That's one way to look at it. Another way is to think, "Well, they're not hurting anyone, so more power to them!"

    We still have a pretty damn xenophobic culture. If I take a cinderblock to a Florida beach, rent out a condo for two, and jack off onto it for hours on end, people are going to think I'm weird as hell. But at the end of the day, what am I really hurting here? Myself? I won't get to reproduce this way? Who cares?

    No, you're missing the point. There's a baseline that ALL human beings deserve. Food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, education, INTERNET ACCESS, etc. Anything on top of those basic necessities is a luxury. Business owners get all of that plus more. If the business fails, they deserve to lose those luxuries, but not the basic necessities.

    Right now, workers do not get all of those things as a basic, guaranteed necessity. We're talking about bringing the bar up to the bare minimum.

    Put even simpler, everyone deserves $10. Workers get $6. Business owners get $15. You're arguing that if workers get $4 more so that they get $10, then business owners deserve $4 to get $19. That's not how this works.

    Businesses are not human beings, they are an idea. Businesses are run by human beings. Those human beings deserve the same basic rights as the people working for them. Anything extra is not a basic right. So no, businesses do not deserve more money.

    Why would everyone deserve a living wage?

    Put simply, because everyone is a human being. We have the total wealth to provide for everyone's basic needs, but we don't do it because capitalism. Gotta scrape in every last dime for myself.

    You can click the "submit" button up in the top right corner and simply post your YouTube link through that. Then, you'll select the tribes you want to publish in. (I usually do /t/videos, /t/freelectures, and one more that's particularly relevant.

    If you'd like to resubmit this as a video, feel free, and I'll remove this one with no hard feelings. :)

    I'm as much of a lily-livered, bleeding-heart, liberal, egghead communist as the next guy and I'm all for gun control, but I'm totally with the armed man in this case. As explained a couple times in this thread, birdshot is harmless on the way back down. He was justified.

    Damn straight. The government can say under what physical conditions you're allowed to drive, operate machinery, etc. That's fine. We don't need people driving high any more than we need people driving drunk. But for god's sake, marijuana is not dangerous. It's safer than tobacco and alcohol.

    It's illegal completely as a way to oppress people, specifically minorities. Good documentary for anyone surprised by this claim: The House I Live In. Crazy enlightening, and horrifying.
